About the love of my life

05 31.05.16

If the story about me and my love life was a movie, it must be ether the nightmare before Christmas or how to train your dragon. And that is some weird movies to compare your love story to.

But this is a weird love story.

Am I an opinionated woman. I do not want to stand behind a man. To see him succeed, and me staying home with the 1,8 kids, behind a white picket fence.

I wanted a man that understood that, and if I was lucky respected me for that dissension. It is not, that I do not want kids. I love kids. But I am not a housewife.

So when I met this wonderful man, at my school, I was sceptic. When I talked to him at first, he challenged me, with a crocked smile. I thought he was a player. Normally players like me, because I am a challenge.

But he turned out to be the sweetest man I had ever met, and I fall in love with him instantly. But I was not ready for him. I was enjoying my single life. And he ruined it in the most amazing way possible.

He has become my second half, not in the sense that I am lost without him. But because he makes everything better. Even when he is mad at me, tired after work or annoyed when I wake him up way too early in the morning.

The last couple of months he has supported me a great deal. With the start of my blog and my upcoming business. I could not have done it without his help. Even though I know he was sick of my questions in the end.

So my love, thank you for understanding me and my planner obsessions. The quirky way my brain works. Even when I was I doubt about myself. You still loved me.

I will always be yours.

Until next time.

Hugs

Finding your confidence within

29.05.16

Like many other teenagers I have struggled with my self esteem and self worth.

I will never write a fairy tale story. It takes time and effort to learn how to love yourself.

I battled a lot with acne from the age of 11 to the age of 21. From the day I got it, or the day I noticed it. I refused to leave the house without makeup. My mother helped me, to hide the acne, she could see how it affected me.

At that time foundation was the only thing, I used. But it did not work. There was no green concealer (that hides redness). And foundation was not easy to find in my skin colour.

As a kid, tween and teenager image means a lot. Even when my skin was beginning to get better, it was still hard for me to go out without makeup on.

It took a long time, for my brain to realize that my acne was gone. Because I still had one or two pimples.

My dad has an expression he uses a lot. “Fake it until you make it.” Pretending to have the confidence you want to have and be the person you want to be. It sounds so silly (but it actually works). And it sounds easy. It is not.

Going outside, knowing that you think you look ugly. Your mind tells you that everybody is looking at you and thinking the same. But I just throw on some sunglasses and strutted down the street. After a while it becomes easier. Especially if your hair is on point and you do not look like a zombie.

But it is important to think highly of yourself. And a lot easier that not doing it.

Hope you will learn from my experiences.

Until next time.

My desk space

26.05.16

I have tried to organize my desk many times, until I realized, it was not for me.

My desk is a mess. But not in the traditional way. I have a lot of small storage units, where I dump most of my planner accessories. And for me, that is perfect organized mess.

Sometimes my desk does not look like a tsunami just came. And right now is one of those times. Because I am a human being. And I mess things up. All the time.

But I like it a bit messy. Sometimes it is messy because I could not find, the one damn thing, that I was looking for. And when you finally find it and you are done using it, the last thing on your mind is cleaning.

Sometimes the desk is part of my desk is part of my thinking process. And I do not know why, but my brain likes the creativity to be a bit messy (my boyfriend hates me for it).

Maybe that is why I always keep weird things at my desk. Of cause I have a large macaron to storage my favourite jewellery. And this week I have a small version of the Millennium Falcon (Star Wars Lego) and Han Solo (the young Han Solo) on my desk.

I love Lego, but especially Star Wars Lego. I have a few of the smaller Lego sets. But I really want the large Millennium Falcon. Even though it is a bit pricey.

That is what a desk is supposed to do. Of cause you need to make your homework at it. And your planning (if you are like me). But a desk needs to inspire you to do that.

And if having Star Wars Lego or something like a large macaron at your desk does the job. Who am I to tell you, that you are wrong?

Until next time.

10 random facts about me

IMG_3380.JPG

So, maybe we have met. Maybe you have read my posts. I am as everyone else, a complicated person, who cannot be put in a box. But I am going to try. (Sarcasm)

Maybe not, but here are 10 random facts.

  1. I really love Disney!!! All Disney, all the time!! My favourite Disney movie is The nightmare before Christmas.
  2. I do not like roses. In Denmark we have something called farmers roses (directly translated), peonies in English, in purple they are my favourite.
  3. I am allergic to tomatoes, which makes coking a bit difficult. And a pain in the ass, when I love sundried tomatoes.
  4. I have over 50 bottles of nail polish and I sometimes I do nail art. But wright now my nails are damaged after I took of my gel nails, so I must wait. I do not like waiting.
  5. I really like sarcasm, and it is heavily used in Denmark. But I really do not understand 80 percent of it.
  6. When I am I bit bored, I usually play ether Pokémon on my Gameboy or Diablo III on my pc. I had to buy Pokémon again, and the Gameboy, because I was to foolish and sold my last one.
  7. I am looking for a new apartment with my weirdo boyfriend and my ninja cat. The one we have, is way too small.
  8. I am 160 cm (5,2) short. I do not mind being short, but finding pants in my length can be difficult. And I joke about my height, a lot.
  9. I am studying to become a pedagogue. I would love to work with school children, when I am done. In 2,5 years.
  10. If I could choose to be a villain or a superhero, I would not have a doubt in my mind. I would be an amazing villain. Poison Ivy style.

Hope you have enjoyed it. Until next time.

My planner obsession

IMG_3356

If you have not guessed it yet, I love planning. Not in the traditional way, with planning your whole life. But in the “F*** did I forget something important?” way.

And I do forget it, when I do not have my planner with me.

Like anyone else I can be a mess sometimes, miss important dinners with friends, or a bill that needs to be paid or some boring adult stuff like that. And after I write in my planner, I can do whatever I want!! I think that sounds pretty awesome!!

But I do not like the traditional planners, even though I love black clothes, I like my planners colourful and a bit on the weird side (a mix between feminine and spooky).

I kind of like being creative and this is a way of doing it. As you see in the picture I have enjoyed some time with a laminator. It is so much fun. Mostly for the child in me.

But the 10% adult I have in me likes the tidiness of the laminated paper.

Anyway, the planner thingy. I am making my own. If you want it, I hope the webshop is going to get started this August with a school version (August – July) and then I will have a year version.

But yeah, check it out if you want to, otherwise I am not going to hold it against you.

But anyways.

Hi quirky ones

IMG_3346

And welcome to my new blog!

This is my first ever blogpost, so I am still learning. But I hope you will have as much fun with reading it, as I have writing it.

Today, even though it is raining outside, I am in the best spring mood. So I thought you would enjoy a picture of the only plant, I have not killed yet.

I thought about showing you guys a picture of my new Lego Disney minifigure, Buzz Lightyear, but I have a collection, so I think they will be shown later.

If you have not noticed, I am a bit of a weirdo.. I like comics, Disney, super heroes, sci-fi, Pokémon and cartoons. Which apparently is not normal, according to society.

My blog will be influenced by this. But I still like nail polish, makeup, shoes and cosplay. So if this is something you will enjoy, stay tuned. Off cause this will also be influenced by the nerdy side of me.

I unfortunately need to be a little fitness and health freakish, in my everyday life. Not by my choice, but by my body’s. If you do not want to hear about it, I will stop.

My blog will also be used as a shop for my planner business, because I think there is a need for a quirky planner out there.

Any questions, just ask.
