What is going on?!?

What is going on?!?

 

So what have I actually been up to?

 

For quite a while you haven’t heard about me and what I am doing, so I thought today would be a good day to tell you what has been going on. 🙂

 

In July I started as an apprentice at JYSK, which is a huge store chain who specializes in “everything to a good nights sleep”

 

Being employed with them has this far been amazing and I have been incredible lucky to be in a store with all young people (since it makes them more understanding and easier to talk with)

Having a job (well I guess this counts for all jobs) is actually really hard (school was hard too, since that meant sitting down for 8 hours and then going home to study) but working in a store-especially one like this, means standing up and walking for 8 hours every day. On a normal work shift for me, I’d end up walking 12.000 steps, and that is JUST for work.

 

Because of this I have been very tired (in a good way) and therefore the blog posts have been a little rough and inconsistent. While my body has finally-almost- gotten used to using my body that much, so has my brain with remembering all the amazing things about my workplace.
Since we give advice to everyone who needs to sleep (basically) there is a lot to remember about sleeping patterns, tips & tricks, advice giving, product information and remembering to use all our platforms correctly (that means the programs for ordering products, our order statuses, our information platform and so on)

 

Beside this my boyfriend and I will be moving tomorrow, so there is a lot to think about with work, moving, blog and actually taking time off to just breathe once in a while.

 

Even though this is a very chaotic time, it is also an amazing time, and I try to enjoy every moment possible.

 

I hope you guys have a blast too, and I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Ways to save money  

Ways to save money  

 

Hello everyone!  Today we will look a little at how you can save money. A couple of months ago I was at a still stand, where I earned no money, and got no money, so these have been very handy!

I hope this will help some of you guys out there, who need some ideas to save money.

 

 

  1. Use the library. You can not only borrow books but also movies, games and music, so instead of buying new, try looking for what you need in the library.
  2. Borrow from your friends or family. This can apply to almost anything, as long as you take care of their stuff, you could end up saving a lot of money.
  3. When washing clothes. Try washing your clothes in colder water and air dry it afterwards.
  4. Buy in bulk. When shopping for food or supplies, buy big amounts of the stuff that has a very low price (this only applies to things that can stay good for long)
  5. DIY everything possible.
  6. Fix stuff by yourself instead of buying new.
  7. Turn down heat, air conditioner or warm water supplies.
  8. Cancel subscriptions to make sure you won’t be tempted to buy anything
  9. Shop with Ebates. Ebates gives you money back for online shopping you have to do anyways.
    (I haven’t tried this, but heard a lot of good things from bloggers that I follow)
  10. Use the Ibotta app. Ibotta offers cash back on a lot of items, you simply just scan the items and the receipt after shopping, and you will get cash back.
    (Same with Ebates, haven’t used this since it doesn’t work in Denmark)
  11. Cook yourself instead of buying take away-this also goes for packing lunch instead of buying.
  12. Renegotiate your bills whenever possible.
  13. Use coupons whenever possible.
  14. Stick to drinking water
  15. Pretend you make less money than you do
  16. Use cheap transportation like biking and walking or try to carpool
  17. Never go grocery shopping when hungry, and restrain from shopping when in a bad mood (I always, and I mean ALWAYS buy stupid s**t when I shop when hungry)
  18. Cancel gym memberships and make a at-home-gym (often we just pay for it and does not use it)
  19. Don’t save any credit card information on your phone to avoid any impulse spendings
  20. Try growing your own food
  21. Make a list when you have to grocery shop, then stick to it
  22. Put on extra clothes before turning up the heat
  23. Always pay off dept, or it will end up being an enormous amount of money that you owe
  24. Shop at thrift stores
  25. Meet friends at home of for a coffee, not for dinner. This way you won’t be tempted to eat out.

    now a few ways to make a little extra money

  26. Sell stuff you don’t need
  27. Use Achievemint- this doesn’t make a lot of money but a little goes a long way, you earn points by walking, biking, running and more. When you have gotten 10.000 points you then earn 10 dollars.
  28. Use Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you for doing simple things like switching your search engine or watching videos.
    (Like Ebates and Ibotta, I heard a lot of good things about Swagbucks from bloggers I follow (like makingsenceofcents ) without being able to use them because they do not Work in Denmark yet)
  29. Use InboxDollars. This one is a lot like Swagbucks, where you get paid for doing small chores like watching videos and answering surveys
    (You guessed it *look at #28)
  30. Use TaskRabbit. TaskRabbit is a website where you can do different chores for other people, it’s easy and you can work at your own pace.
    (#28)
  31. Invest your money. The stock market can be a complicated thing, but investing your money is one of the easiest ways to earn money, as long as you do not do it blindly. I suggest reading a little about investing before actually doing it, but once you get the hang of it, you can learn a lot by investing your money.

    Money Challenge ideas

  32. For every time you have shopped, put your change in a 2-litre bottle. After filling it you should have at least 400 dollars.
  33. The daily saving challenge. Each day is equal to an amount of money. The first day is 1, second is 2 and so on, after one month you should have 456 dollars saved.
  34. Try the no spending challenge. This means you can only use money on the absolutely most necessary

 

Lastly, here is a budgeting template that I use. I didn’t make it myself, but I still use it almost always. It found it at lightroompresets

If you’re not into templates try downloading an app like GoodBudget to keep track on your budget.

 

Thats all for this time, I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 😊

Easy homemade liquid foundation

Easy homemade liquid foundation

Tofay we have a veeeeeeery short post, a recipe for a 2 ingredients liquid foundation.

You’ll need:

  • Powder (I used an old Manhattan Clearface of mine that was broken)
  • Some sort of crème (I used a man face cream from Derma)

33995723_10213179993122147_1961520922816937984_n.jpg

Start breaking your powder until it is dust.

33941984_10213179993202149_9099063288032919552_n.jpg

Take some of your crème and mix, it into the powder.

Now mix, mix, mix and you get a creamy foundation (i know it looks kind of suspect like this, but you can also put it in a container to make it look a little prettier)

34015749_10213179993522157_1745836182131965952_n.jpg

You can choose yourself how much powder and creme you want to use, more cream=softer but lighter covereage.

 

Tada! Ready to use.  That’s not hard, was it? 😉

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Cat nails

Cat nails

 

For today we will be cute. For today we will make cat nail art!

 

You’ll need:

  • A dotting tool- to make paws
  • A base color (mine is kind of nude- Loreal number 855 called oyster bay)
  • A black nail polish (mine is with a small brush to draw the lines- if you don’t have one, you’ll have to use something like a small brush to draw with)

34483603_10213218638568259_4226397357140344832_n.jpg

 

Start painting your nails in your base color- I know my fingers are blue, that’s from another nail art idea 😉

34366808_10213218638648261_2807006061330956288_n

Use your brush to draw cats with the black polish- I made one fat and one with pointy ears just to make them different. I used the dotting tool for the nose and eyes.

 

Use your dotting tool to make paw like prints on the rest of the fingers

34386207_10213218638968269_7159397585474551808_n

Voila!

You are now pawlicious

Chocolate milkshake

Chocolate milkshake

 

Today we will make something DE-LI-CIOUS, that is Chocolate milkshake

 

 

You will need

 

  • 1 dl milk
  • 2 tablespoons of chocolate sauce
  • 3 spoons of chocolate ice cream
  • A little ice cream and chocolate sauce for decorating

33174580_10213135473529185_5591617695029133312_n.jpg

Turn the chocolate sauce with the milk and whisk with a fork until the chocolate sauce is dissolved.

Blend the milk and the ice cream together. Either for a short period of time fast, or for a little longer but slower. Just do this until it looks like milkshake.

 

Now decorate your glass. I just chose to put chocolate down the sides, poured the milkshake in, put a little bit of chocolate ice cream on top together with some more chocolate sauce (yes I DO love chocolate)

 

Voila you are done! This is really easy to make and takes absolutely no time
