week 32/ an extensive one



We drove around a lot for 4 days, and what did I make pictures of? Waterfalls and kittens, that’s what.

The kittens people! Totally adorable. They’re 8 weeks old, climb up on you and fall asleep in your lap while purring. Irresistible.

Reading list

Not a great reading week because I had literally no alone time, and feel the need to actively hang out with my family when I’m actually there. I did pick this up at Amsterdam airport, and read about a third on the way there though:




I quite liked this cheap serum from Swedish Kronan pharmacy, so it was time to repurchase.


week 31/this one’s actually done in time


As it’s cooled down a bit this week (like, 27-29 C rather than 37 C), we haven’t ordered food! (*pats self on back*) My favorites this week were the Korean beef wraps and the oven baked aubergine with pasta. I would show pictures, but I don’t have any. You can imagine it 😛



I fly to Sweden on Saturday for a week of vacation with the family (and they’ve planned this road trip, meaning we’ll barely be “at home” at all?). Meanwhile the security people at Amsterdam airport are – as far as I understand – taking extra breaks and shit (rather than going on strike), leading to “additional delays” on top of it being the busiest period at the airport since it’s school vacations. Not stressing me out. AT. ALL.

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).
