Things I'm loving lately | 17.11.2014November 17, 2014
The fact is that I am still shrouded in a cloud of sadness regarding my dog who has passed away last week. We all have a hard time with him gone - the house is só quiet. Too quiet. Mourning the loss of a person or animal you loved is normal and even necessary. But the trick is also to try and see the beautiful things that come along, even in times of sadness. I wanted to share with you the things that kept me on my feet this past week.
Oh, and perhaps you might remember that a couple of posts back I asked people for help with my design. Something wasn't right and my blog was malfunctioning. Other bloggers with the same template as me responded on my post that they, too, suffered the same bug. Luckily one of them found the answer to what was wrong and all is good again. Thank heavens I don't have to change template. I love this one sooo much! Thank you Aishly for coming up with the solution!
The past week I have been working very hard behind the scenes of this blog (the other blog will come next week) to get everything out of my blog possible. Now, Pinterest is one of the largest social media out there these days, and a very good one for leading traffic to your blog at that. One of the tips given, if you are a professional blogger/photographer/model/writer/whatever, is to convert your account into a business account. So I did and I now have that desired red check confirming my website is trustworthy. I have a lot of followers on Pinterest, which are growing by the minute (!), and noticed a huge change on my blog already. It works, so if you haven't done this yet, as a blogger, do it. Follow my Pinterest here.
I was a real Pilates girl (still am) but decided I wanted to try Yoga again aswell. I have been doing this in the past but neglected it only to pick it up recently again. After already 20 minutes of consequent Yoga, I notice a huge change in my body and all my senses are running at their sharpest. I feel reborn when finished. Because my boyfriend is pretty much stressed out lately, I tried to persuade him to do this together with me, and he was reaaaaaally reluctant at first. I fluttered a bit with my lashes, and now we do this together, and he aswell feels much better when finished.
3. 75 Blog resources for busy bloggers
I LOVE this blog post from the blog Krystal Kitsch. She practically covered everything a blogger needs to know about blogging. I settled on the couch with a cup of tea, some macarons, laptop on my lap and read all of it; it keept me busy for a whole day and I have learned a great deal of it. Find the list here.
4. Overnight Oats
This is a new favorite breakfast thingy of me. It's a huge sensation in breakfast town already, and since I am always running late on things popular, I found out about it later than most people. But whén I did ... I was immediately hooked on this delicious breakfast that tastes like dessert. You make these the evening before going to bed (the oats need that time to soak up the (almond)milk) and when you arise you take it out of the fridge and indulge yourself with a healthy breakfast. My favorite is with blueberries and I'll post it anytime soon on my food blog.
5. An upcoming photosession I have planned
I am not going to tell what the topic will be, but I can tell that it really excites me. It takes a lot of preparation, as it involves props that are hard to come by.
