Why & how I workout



After a chocolate filled Easter it's good to talk about sweating again, eh? :D However yummy and delicious all the Easter treats were this year, nothing in this world beats the good feeling after an amazing workout. At least not for me. It's a mixture of pleasure, happiness and proudness. I'm so crazy into it that even the pain during a workout can give me goosebumps of excitement sometimes. As they say, no pain no gain. Working out is a big part of my life and it almost always has been. 

However that doesn't mean I don't ever have difficulties to leave the very comfortable corner of the sofa and warmth of a blanket. I do and sometimes lazy girl takes over and instead of doing my planned workout, I stay home and watch loads of Youtube. It happens and it's ok as long as I still move often enough. What does help me get off my bum though are my goals.

My furry friend TAG


It's Easter time! Yaaay! That means of course a lot of chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies and, in our family, real bunnies. Or one bunny to be precise. If you've been following the blog long enough and if you follow me on Snapchat (wellemma1) you might very well know that me and my husband own a pet rabbit. I probably post about her way too much on my Snapchat to be honest haha. But I haven't actually blogged about her properly after we got her home (read and watch Buying a pet rabbit).

3 Smoothies


Smoothies are my favourite breakfast, snack and dessert. Is there even anything better in this world? They are healthy yet super yummy. I've always been very, VERY keen on fruits. I could eat a kilo of mandarins in one go. So when I learned about smoothies the first time, my heart was instantly taken.

4 Super Quick & Easy hairstyles


I dedicate my time in the mornings to breakfast and makeup, and especially the latter takes a ridiculous amount of it. And so hair is something I very easily have hardly any time for and end up either doing nothing or putting quite a minimum effort into it. Doing nothing can look a bit catastrophic, since my hair is so long, slippery and straight, but even a minimum effort can change it all totally! And so I thought I'd share with you my favourite superduper quick hairstyles. I'm sure I'm not the only person in this world who feels like mornings are too short!

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment

Who else loves taking their makeup off after a long day? Because I just absolutely love it. Although putting makeup on is something that I love doing in the morning and use a ridiculous amount of time doing so, taking it off in the evening feels like having a picnic in a lovely park: it basically makes me happy. I've been putting a lot of effort into my skincare routine lately and I think my skin is starting to thank me. I'd love to show you the whole routine at some point but before I do so, let me tell you a couple of things about my fave part of the whole routine: eye cream! I honestly love this product very very much!

Spring Makeup Tutorial

I'm very much and totally a spring person. You know how some people start blogging about Christmas early? Well it seems that I'm doing the exact same thing with spring. Officially and astronomically spring starts on the 20th of March and technically, that's not so far away anymore! Tbh though, my spring started the second March started and I'm going to enjoy it for as long as possible. Even if I'm just kidding myself that winter is over haha. 

With spring comes pastel shades, warmer weather and lighter makeup. I created a look which reminded me of the sunlight that I haven't seen in a while :D It's light, natural and still super fun. Watch my video to see how I created the look!

TOP 5 Nude Lipsticks



Who doesn't love a good nude? They make lips look even, full and give a slight shade too. They are perfect for every occasion from first date to job interview. They're sophisticated yet they add a little extra to every day. I myself have a very strong relationship towards nude lipsticks. My dear hubby always says I have too many and they all look the same. But with all the lovely nude shades in this world, how can a girl pick just one? My answer: she (me) can't! :D But I have picked my 5 favourite nude lipsticks in my collection.

These are lipsticks I love and wear super regularly over all the other nude shades I have. I think they are all different to each other in terms of shade and formula. Beauty bloggers often refer to as "the perfect" nude, and these are the ones I've found are the best. And by the way, these are in no particular order, I love them all equally <3

SHY

Shyness has been on my mind a lot lately. I've mentioned it in some of my videos and you guys have also mentioned it in your comments. I know now there are a lot of shy people in this world and when I was younger I wished for some better advice on it than "be brave". That never helped me, because I didn't know how to do so. Confidence is something that builds up when you grow and get older, but I still wish somebody had told me a couple of tips.

And so I went a little back down memory lane and gave a very hard thought on what I had actually done. For the record, I used to have problems with starting a conversation or joining in one. Especially in large groups. Being the center of attention and saying something out loud was a nightmare for me. From that, I've somehow managed to become a fitness instructor, a teacher, a blogger and a youtuber. All things which require being in front of other people and express yourself verbally. That didn't happen all in one day and I've definitely had to consciously work hard for that. 

Being shy isn't a negative thing and please never feel like you have to get rid of it. You probably won't even if you try. And if you feel comfortable with yourself the way you are, then that is more than ok. For me though, I always felt like I wasn't being myself around other people and I felt like they didn't get to know me and I didn't get to know them. I still am shy and very often feel insecure, but I've learnt to control it, live with it and not let it stop me from doing what I want to do.

I filmed a video with three tips for anybody who wants to gain more confidence. I learned these along the way, and as I said, whish somebody had given me a hint somewhere in the past about how to live with shyness. So here I am giving you that hint and I hope it helps you. Just remember, you are awesome just the way you are, as long as you are happy with yourself. <3



I'd love to hear your thoughts on shyness!
Do you feel shy?
Have you ever wanted to not be shy?
How have you gained more confidence?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Love you!
