Minimalist Living – April

I am very late with this post. Been flying a lot and studying for my exams. May will also be hectic, but I promise I will start posting more about my travels so you can also see the cities where I go! ^^

Here is finally my minimalist wardrobe for April!

Not much, huh? πŸ˜‰
I went out a couple of times which is way you can see a striped shirt and a black top with some ruffles in the front.
But basically, everything else is the same. My favourite jeans and a must black T-shirt.

I must admit though, I’ve been bad! I went shopping! 😦

All on sale of course. Got some things I’ve been looking for, but also some I could do without. What to do??? :/
I hope I’m not the only one and that there are more of us out there! Hello? πŸ˜‰

Diy Statement Necklaces

You saw this one.

And it is my FAVOURITE! πŸ˜€

It took a lot of time, but it doesn’t matter. It was inspired by Africa. As was the next one.

Skinny-Fat Person?

Is that a thing? Skinny-fat person? Because I TOOOTALLY recognize myself in this article!

skinny-fat

http://thoughtcatalog.com/christopher-hudspeth/2015/01/14-things-only-skinny-fat-people-understand/

I am pretty tall for a girl and people have always said to me: Oh, you’re not fat, everything is well spread! You can’t tell anything!

And that’s the problem with us skinny-fat people! Nobody believes us we are ”fat”! Everything is fine, nothing needs to be changes, but I am talking about being healthy!

Now, I am a very realistic and objective person. I can take a step back and without judgement say how it is. A trade of a teacher, ey?! πŸ™‚

I know I am not fat, but all I am saying is I could lose a few kg and tone up. That’s all.

And when I say lose a few kg, i don’t mean go on a crazy diet. I am not a supporter of that! 😦

I mean get back to exercising and eating healthy. It’s all about the food in the end! πŸ™‚ Healthy choices!

I just started Kayla Itsines BBG. I can tell it’s a big community. I really like the before and after pics and I’m hoping I’ll look like that after 3 months, but the way I’m going… IDK! XD

I came across the article above and I can’t lie. It’s me! XD

From eating totally healthy to having a ”cheat meal” at 3AM, from M clothing not always being a good choice for me to the ‘‘I just ate, but I’m still hungry!”. Which is basically my life motto! -.-

Click and read the article!
Do you recognize yourself in it like I do? What are more of the challenges you encounter as a skinny-fat person?

Also, anyone doing the BBG? I just started and I would LOVE to hear about your thought and progress!^^

So comment, like and follow!

And be well! =)

Relaxing at Bastakiya

I want to show you a beautiful old part of Dubai called Bastakiya. If you read my OOTD Boho Chic, you remember I mentioned it. If you missed it, seeΒ it here. πŸ˜‰

It is all renovated to look like it used to and it is a tourist attraction. There are museums, nice restaurants and loads of local artists have their shops there. You can browse, watch them work, talk to them and buy a unique piece of art.

Enjoy the pics! =)
(There is also a little DIY project hidden. See if you can find it! :))

Out on the streets…

Ant this place…

Who wouldn’t like to sit and relax there with a nice mocktail?! ;D

Another nice place to seat and have something to eat and drink. It is also a gallery. Check out the art!

This one is a nice DIY idea! A tabure made out of tires and a pice of upholstered weod. Who’s gonna make one?! πŸ˜‰

I really like the sculptures which throw different shadows. Which one is your favourite?

I would also recommend a restaurant called Arabian Tea House!Β I really like how it has flowers all around, and the blue of the benches and the white really gives it a nice feel. So beautiful! ^^

arabian-tea-house-cafe

I have loads more pictures, but omg it would be crazy to upload them all!

It is a really cool place to visit and relax, have a bite to eat and a drink. Everything is nicely decorated and I love the bright colours!

Have you ever been there? What did you think?

Have a good one guys!

I’m off to bed and then to Jakarta!

Be well! =) ❀

OOTD Crashing A Party

I just came back from outside soΒ I though I’d post a quick OOTD before I cange into my PJs and a quick and easy DIY with it. It’s 4AM here.
What begun as just a coffee with a friend, turned out for me crashing someones birthday party.
For some reason I decided to wear wedges and good thing I did because all the girls were dressed up.

image

With my favourite blue skinny jeans, I wore a simple black and white striped shirt (both Primark), but what I think makes it stand out is the black tie.

Which is actually a good and simple DIY idea. Just take and long fabric strip and turn it into a tie! Extra points for a pop of colour! πŸ˜‰

Something like this! Very unique!

image

In combination with cute wedges in turquoise (New Look) and a big, redish clutch makes it all playful, fun and a bit different! =)
