And just a disclaimer: I tend to ramble on for hours on end, so sorry in advance for trailing off.

Questions I got from Nita

  1. Have you watched any musicals or plays? If so, which one was your favorite and why?
    I have never really watched that many plays. I know I saw two when I was younger; one with my school and one with my family, but I don’t recall any of those.
    When I was at Efterskole (Something like boarding school but not at all-try asking Wikipedia if you want to know) I was starring in a lot of plays since it was an Efterskole for Performing Arts.
    I remember we had a Revue visiting and playing on our school. They loaned our hall in the three days they were there in exchange for all the students getting free passes to see the Revue. This meant I could go see it as many times as I wanted. I watched it all three days and remember how enchanted and immersed I was.
    The fact that every night had the same outline- the same base story- but still were so vastly different amazed and impressed me; and I truly respected the actors and actresses.

  2. What is your favorite drink to cool off with in the summer?
    This is kind of hard to answer since I almost always can drink a cold soda (not only in the summer days), but I also really like iced coffee or iced tea.

  3. How do you deal with negativity stemming from Social media?
    Negativity is one of those things you cannot go a day without seeing on social media – unfortunately.

    Usually when I notice negativity, my action really depends on what type of negativity it is. Is it just some internet troll writing on every post, picture or video to try to get you down by saying hurtful things and downgrading your position as a human being? Well then, I tend to ignore it. If you answer those people, there is a good chance that they write something dehumanizing to you again.
    The best thing to do (if I have to answer those people), is to answer with kindness.
    Did they tell you that you suck? Your posts are bad and you got no idea how to take pictures? Well then tell them the only reasonable thing: thank you very much, I will take that into consideration when making new content.
    I haven’t met many of these people yet, but look at it from another perspective. Those people just pointed out something that you can improve. Now go improve and if they are still there spouting nonsense afterwards you know you did all you could-let them spout their nonsense without you having to actively take a part- because you just tried doing that by improving yourself.

    Another thing is when noticing someone commenting something negative on another person’s platform. Again, it does not help to comment or tell that person off.
    The thing that actually helps? Spreading positivity!
    If I can brighten someone’s day by writing them a positive comment, then why in the world would I not do it. I cannot take responsibility for another person’s actions, but I can take responsibility for my own.

    The more positive content and comments we put out there, the easier it is to drown out the negative ones.

  4. Do you ever have moments where your self confidence is rattled? If so, how do you deal with it?
    Self-confidence, huh. As someone who had a depression for, I don’t even remember how many years (like 2 really bad years and about 4 years more to actually get afoot), self-confidence and self-love is something I have really struggled with.

    I recently read the book “The Subtle art of not giving a fuck” by Mark Manson.
    He talked about something that really resonated with me; self-confident people and people that truly love themselves do not go around reminding themselves that they are loved. They don’t talk to themselves in the mirror, trying to convince themselves that they are great; because they know they are.
    I instantly thought back to my depression years, looking myself in the mirror ever so often trying to convince myself that I was worth something- anything. As someone depressed, trust me it works- because when you are so far away from accepting yourself, you just have to fake it till you make it. On that note: we have to be careful about what we tell ourselves, because we are listening.

    So to get back to the question of if my self-confidence is ever rattled? Yes, and often when stress is involved. If I have a presentation, an exam or having to do something outside of my comfort zone, my confidence levels can take a quick turn.
    Then to answer the question of what do I do when my confidence gets rattled? I simply don’t give a fuck.
    If it is something you have to do, you gotta do it.
    Forget all about confidence, throw it out the window. Tell the people with that you are nervous and just get down to business. Often, I find that starting whatever I have to do, is the actual part making me nervous, stressed or self-doubting.

    On another note I am also very afraid of conflict, introverted and highly sensitive, which means this method only works with stuff I really NEED to do.
    If I don’t have to then to heck with it. I’m not doing it.
  5. What is your current favorite summer time song?
    I think at the moment it would be Rude my Magic.
    But beside that pretty much all songs with Scarlet Pleasure is also doing the trick. I really like a lot of their music, and most of them reminds me of when I was at a “private” concert with them and I just instantly get in a good mood.


Questions for my nominees:

  1. What is the absolute best thing that has happened in your life so far?
  2. Do you have a special talent, if yes; what is it?
  3. If you could do anything you wanted at all with no risk of failing. What would you do?
  4. Fill in the blank. To me, Happiness is ________.
  5. What always makes you smile?

If it is not to your liking (or you have already done this before)- be free to not react or answer these questions. It is only to spread positivity and get to know each other better! 😊

Go give all these amazing bloggers some love!

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

Keeping my promises

Keeping my promises


Well hello there you beautiful people!


December 21 I put up a post on my blog named:looking back at the year – thoughts, goals and hopes for 2020.

In there I talked about how the year went, and I set some goals for the new year. Today, I really want to sit down, and talk to you about how I am doing with these so-called goals.

Looking back at the year – Thoughts, goals and hopes for 2020

Looking back at the year – Thoughts, goals and hopes for 2020


2020 Is nearing way too fast, and I would love to look back at the year.


A lot has happened in 2019; I became a second-year student, got glasses (because apparently, I am not as good as seeing as I thought), and celebrated 5 years together with my boyfriend.


My boyfriend and I also made it to 1 year living together, we got a new bed (expensive AF), and kind of made this tiny, not-that-great apartment kind of worth living in.

I had my study-trip (or whatever) with my classmates, and actually made some friends- who would have known??

Overall, I feel like this year has been a rollercoaster – Doesn’t every year feel like that? And there has been so many good things.
Of course there has been a lot of bad stuff too, but why in the world would we like to think about those? – Unless of course we can do something about them.


At the start of the year I made a vision board with some goals for this year, so let’s look at how that went!

  • Reach 200 followers
    Still in the making- It’s slow and steady, but I think we might still be able to make it (hopefully)
  • Wake up at a reasonable time
    Well… I was really good at this, just until I wasn’t. I have to get back into the right routine again, so that I will keep on feeling fresh and wakey.
  • Do more yoga
    Yes, and no. In periods, I am super good at this. Gets up early, does the yoga, feels good about myself. Other times I am more like a sloppy potato, not really feeling energized enough to do, well, anything.
  • Eat better
    This I have become much better at! I usually drank way too much soda (yup I have been very addicted), and now I am down to only drinking it in the weekends, and some weekends not even drinking it.
    Besides this I had these huge sugar cravings. where I just felt like eating all the sugar in the world (even though I do not eat that much at one time, I was good at eating something every day, multiple times a day) And I also stopped eating candy, cakes and so on in the weekdays, unless of course it was a special occasion.
    These better eating habits did slip once in a while, but overall I kept them pretty good.
  • Drink more water
    Yup, this one I got MUCH better at, even though I am terrible at it. I went from drinking like, maybe half a Liter a day, to one. (even sometimes more). I would love to get closer to two, but small steps forward also count.
  • Make a donation
    I actually donated quite a lot early on the year, simply because we had too much stuff in our apartment (I am a hoarder and have a hard time throwing anything out).
    We ended up giving all our extra kitchen gear and so on, to a local second hand shop.
  • Reach Platinum in LOL
    This one was my only gaming related goal- thank god for that, and I actually made it into Platinum in League Of Legends new game mode thingy Teamfight Tactics.


Now, I feel like I did pretty good this year, and I hope I will be able to do even better in the year to come.


Another thing I would like to look at, is my bucket list. I know I have shared it quite a while ago, but let’s see what I crossed from my list this year:

  • Plant a tree (with the app, Forest, I have planted 4 trees by now)
  • Donate clothes (Donated a lot to H&M, and even though that might not be the “best cause” it is indeed better than throwing them out!

That is indeed not much for one whole year, but I aspire to cross of more in the year to come!



Let’s look at next year’s goals:

  • Reach 250 followers on the blog
  • Reach 10 subscribers on YouTube
  • Finish my education
  • Get a job
  • Drink more water
  • Get more exercise- Yoga & running
  • Eat less sugar
  • 1 good thing a day
  • Low buy
  • Get more creative- try with making homemade pasta and sew my own clothes
  • Write a book
  • Get into French (I learned some at my time in France, but lo and behold, I forgot most of it, and now only speaks low quality French)
  • Save-Opoly


Some of these might seem a bit low hit, but to be honest, it is just important to me to get some good habits going for year to come.
Let’s get a bit more into some of these goals!


1 good thing a day:

I don’t remember where I saw this first, but I remember getting the idea from something similar on Pinterest.

What I am going to do is get a container (actually I got a clear vase), and every day in the new year, I will end the day writing one good thing that happened that day.
This way I will end up with a vase filled with good vibes, and nice memories from the past year. When the year nears its end (or when I just need a pick me up), I can take a note, and read it.

The vase can be reused every year, and the paper can be kept for another time. (and I might even end up having many years of memories.

I just got a vase from the shop where I work, and some origami paper from a craft shop. The paper was colourful, not too big, and without glue (like sticky notes) or other stuff on.

Now let’s go catch those good days!



Low Buy:

I got this idea (or stole it) from The Newbury Girl here on WordPress.

She did the same thing, ending up in a no buy, that made me think about how much money I actually use on makeup and skincare.


Literally way too much, and I see now; I have a problem. I can just imagine what I could’ve used all those hundreds of dollars, Euro, DKK on if just I kept them, or saved them.

I guess the first part is admitting you have a problem, the next thing is doing something about it.

So, for 2020 (oh god I hope I can keep this) I will CUT DOWN on some of the stuff I buy.

This means: I will get a fixed amount a month that I can buy makeup and skincare for. The number of my choosing: 150DKK, which is about 20 Euro or 22USD.

Doesn’t sound as much, but man I need to cut down, and to be honest; some months I use closer to 1000DKK (134 Euro, 149USD) and I therefore need some help.

I will be able to stock up on my budget, meaning if I don’t use all the money in for example January, I can put it into my February account. On the other hand, I cannot use my budget in advance, and therefore take money from February to use in January.

Now, there are some rule bending.

I AM allowed to buy something if I have used my product up, and I do not have another product filling that need.
I AM allowed to buy it, if it is something, I have had on my wish list for a while and it comes on sale. I am therefore not allowed to buy it if it is the normal price.
I AM allowed to buy the Safiya Nygaard Lipstick Collection if it is in stock, no matter the price.
I AM allowed to buy the Disney Princesses and Villains collections. The Frozen collection is a maybe. (I have been looking at these for soooo long)
I AM allowed to buy the Holo Taco “Basic necessities” which translates to approx. 5 products (base, topcoat, colour, colour and peel of protection)

Now of course I am not allowed to buy all of these at the same time (even though I would love too), but these are the ones that I, in the year of 2020 AM allowed to buy at some point.


In short

  • 150DKK a month
  • I can save, but not borrow
  • I can buy if I have no other solution
  • I can buy sales from my Wishlist
  • I can buy from Safiya, Cristine or Disney.


Write a book

I have always wanted to write a book, but never really known what to write about.

Now. I still don’t know what to write about, there are just too many options, but no matter what I want to find out, and at least actually try to write something.



Last year I also played Save-Opoly, and actually saved quite a bit up.
Therefore I am doing this again this year, just to see how much I can actually save up.

The rules are easy. Start at the start point. Every week you roll a dice, and move the amount that the eyes say. The place you and at, is how much you put away in a savings account that you are not allowed to touch. I put mine into the “New bed” savings, and were ONLY allowed to use the money for that new bed.




That’s the Goals for 2020, and though some might seem oh so simple, I find that it is always harder to reach them than you sometimes think.



I think that is enough chit chat for one day, so I will end this rant for now!


What goals are you setting for next year??



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