week 30 / when it was just too warm

We ordered food 3 times last week, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Anyone who’s willing to spend time cooking when it’s 37 degrees (C) is not my kind of person. Was it healthy food? Nope. Was it delicious? Yep. Totally worth it.

Listened to this album while cooking on Saturday (yeeees, I did cook also):

Reading list
Yes people, I read books this week! Apparently the best way to get me out of a reading slump is to start with YA books. I read 4 in 3 days. Sure it helps that they were all less than 300 pages long, but it still totally counts. The list will be in the month summary coming on Wednesday, so if you really care, you can read there 😛

Someone pointed out that Anne Hathway (a.k.a. the adorable girl from Princess Diaries) is political on Instagram, so obviously I now follow her:

The murder of Nia Wilson- may she rest in the power and peace she was denied here- is unspeakable AND MUST NOT be met with silence.  She is not a hash tag; she was a black woman and she was murdered in cold blood by a white man. White people- including me, including you- must take into the marrow of our privileged bones the truth that ALL black people fear for their lives DAILY in America and have done so for GENERATIONS.  White people DO NOT have equivalence for this fear of violence. Given those givens, we must ask our (white)selves- how “decent” are we really?  Not in our intent, but in our actions?  In our lack of action? Peace and prayers and JUSTICE for Nia and the Wilson family xx Note: the comments for this post are closed. #blacklivesmatter #antiracist #noexcuse #sayhername #earntherighttosayhername

In this weather, the only relevant beauty discussion is which SPF to use (50, always 50).

  1. Cooking when it’s even close to 30 is just plain stupid, unless you have wicked good AC. I should know because I did and I do regret it. Ordering food strikes me as prettty smart!

    But! Isn’t also what to do about the exessive oil in this weather relevant? I’m experimenting with different things. Might have to up the clay masks is my best guess currently.

    Other than that. Surely this weather is ending soon? It seems a bit late to invest in some sort of fan and mebbe more shorts..?

    1. Oh yeah, you’re right! Clay masks does indeed sound like the best bet. I haven’t done anything but suffer and complain 😛

      Haha, we have both fans and shorts, and yeah it helped, but it was still totally unbearable.

      1. Also good, which I’ve only just now realized: put the goddamn skincare in the fridge. At least that’ll give you a few minutes of coolness against the skin. This weather makes me feel like such a noob. And there are people who live in these temperatures like always. How do they do it?? Especially people who can go to the gym in this heat. Do you suppose their gyms have much better AC than ours?? (Overly concerned with the gym? Yeah, maybe..)

      2. I mean that sounds nice in theory, only our new house has a lot of stairs, and I know I won’t walk down two stairs then up again for the skincare products 😛

        Jo precis! Helt omöjligt! Min enda erfarenhet av det är från Curacao där det är 28-30 grader året runt, och ja, ACn där är mycket mycket bättre än de här i NL. Så du har nog rätt.

      3. What, are you telling me you’re not a fan of “free workout”??? 😉 Näe, jag förstår helt och fullt, skulle nog inte heller göra. Är ju fasiken counterproductive.

        Tur det, pga då kan man skylla eventuellt dåligt resultat på värmen 😛


      4. Svara “Det kanske det är, men roligt är det fan inte!” 😉

        ..förutom efter ett pass med tung vikt knäböj (eller motsvarande) pga när man får bort vikten känns all form av gående så jävla lätt man praktiskt taget skuttar fram. Du får börja med det! (Gud jag är full av geniala idéer :P)
