How to live a healthy life?

That's just something I've been thinking about for the past few days, considering I was sick two weeks ago and I'm feeling poorly AGAIN. I'm literally getting sick of being sick so often! I know my immune system is quite weak due to anxiety issues and stress, but there's gotta be something I can do to make it better! So here's what I want to do:

I don't exercise at all, so I need to get off my lazy bum and start getting fit and healthy. I've already started doing yoga for flexibility, but I might also start doing some power yoga.

Change my diet
I'll eat anything with sugar. Which is actually really, really bad, so I want to start eating more fruits & veggies instead of all those sugary sweets.

Drink more water instead of soda
I drink a lot of diet coke and ice tea, and I hardly ever drink plain water. So I want to start drinking at least 4 glasses of water a day. It might not seem that much, but going from none to 4 is quite a big step :b

Sleep more
I never get enough sleep. I'm always tired, but still I go to bed far too late and my alarm goes off far too early. Need to change that.

How do you stay healthy? Feel free to share your health secrets with me in the comments ^.^

Have a nice day!

Inspirational Post | Pastel Hair

Secretly I've always loved pastel coloured hair. It makes me think of fairies or mermaids and I really like the way it looks. This summer, I dipdyed my hair pink, which I loved, but I don't think I could ever muster up the courage to go through the whole bleaching/dyeing process. And I don't think I could get away with pink/lilac/turquoise hair. But fortunately there are people who look great with it, so that I can look at their pictures and share them with you!

And now I really want pink or lilac hair. Looking at all of these pictures might not be such a good idea after all :')

Edit: I was playing around a bit with Photoshop and I figured out how to change hair colours, so of course I tried pastel hair! This is the result:

I don't really think I could pull it off, but it's funny to know what I'd look like.
What do you think of pastel hair? Would you ever dye your hair such a crazy colour?

Have a nice day! XXX :)

The Liebster Award

First of all, I would like to thank my family and my friends for always believing in me and.. No, I'm just kidding. But I got nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Dutch bloggers Claudia and Inge from We Love The Sun ! All I need to do now is answer their 11 questions, tell 11 facts about myself and nominate some other bloggers. Unfortunately I'm not going to nominate anyone because I don't follow any new bloggers that haven't already gotten a Liebster nomination.

So, let's start with the questions!

1. What's your favourite makeup product?
I think my favourite makeup product is eyeliner, because I love winged eyeliner and I don't think I could live without winged eyeliner.

2. What's the funniest video you've ever watched?
This is a really tough question for me, because I watch lots of hilarious videos. But if I really have to choose one? I think it's this one:


3. What's your biggest blunder?
Let's just say that it was in my first year of highschool and it had something to do with my huge rucksack and me falling over. Fortunately, only my friends saw it happening.

4. What's your favourite type of candy?
I really really really like sour worms. Like, a lot a lot.

5. Who's your favourite actor?
Max Irons, because he's a really good actor and he's the sexiest guy alive. And his accent! *drools on keyboard*

6. What's your favourite perfume?
Alien by Thierry Mugler.

7. What's your favourite season?
Winter, because I get to dress up all warm and cosy, it's my birthday and I love the christmas season ^.^

8. What's your favourite app on your phone?
I like to pretend I'm living in the stone age, so I own a phone that doesn't even work with apps.

9. How long have you been blogging?
I've blogged for a loooong time before I started this one. But I never felt like I really loved it. Until I started Veralette on the 21st of March 2013.

10. Which celebrity would you want to meet?
Harry Styles. We belong together.

11. What is the last thing you bought?
The last thing I bought, was a present for one of my friends. I haven't given it to her yet, so I'm not going to tell you what it is :b

Eleven facts about me:

1. I'm a lipgloss/lipbalm addict. I feel naked without it.
2. I know all the steps to we're all in this together from High School Musical.
3. I'm secretly convinced that I'll marry a certain Englishman whose initials are H. E. S. If you figure out which handsome Brit this is, leave it in the comments ^.^
4. I've always had a thing for guys with hipster glasses.
5. I love high heels, but I love my black Converse shoes more.
6. I miss my dipdyed hair, but I'm not sure if I want to dye it again.
7. If I was a Disney princess, I would want to be Ariel. Come on, mermaid tail + handsome prince?! It just isn't fair. Why can't I be a mermaid?
8. Something I always think about when I watch or read Harry Potter is, what if J.K. Rowling actually is a wizard, who decided to write about her adventures as if it was fiction?
9. I dream about pizza a lot.
10. My favourite ice cream flavour is chocolate chip cookies :3
11. I could watch "Bridget Jones' Diaries" every day and still not get bored of it.

I'm sorry I'm not nominating anyone, but I just don't know who to nominate! By the way, my next post is going to be my 50th! I never would have thought that I would ever write that many posts :o!

Have a nice day!

My Favourite Room Items

Hi guys! A few months ago, I posted a Room Tour which was quite popular. So today I want to show you five of my favourite room items!

Though you might not recognize it at once, the first item is already shown on the picture above. It's my IKEA PS MASKROS pendant lamp. I love this thing. I already expressed my love for it in my Room Tour post, but once isn't enough. It's the eyecatcher of the room. It creates flower shapes on my walls. It's amazing, breathtaking and I'm a little over exaggerating, but that's just how much I love this lamp.

The second item is, obviously, my piano. My piano skills are getting better and better and I'm sure it'll take just a few more months until I'm the next Mozart. No, I'm kidding, I will never be as good as Mozart, but I'm enjoying it a lot ^.^

The third item, is my rubber ducky collection. Call me immature, but I am actually proud of my collection. I remember buying every single rubber ducky I came across. My obsession with rubber duckies is over now and I think it'll take a while before I buy another rubber ducky again.

The fourth item is actually a new addition to my room, because it's been there for about three weeks. I bought it in a Dutch themepark called the Efteling (if you're ever in the Netherlands, you should go there!) and it's simple, but cute. I really like butterflies, so I had to buy it when I saw it.

The fifth item is even newer. It's my grandparents' old record player. Though I don't have many records yet, I already adore this thing. Music sounds so much more vintage and the record player gives it this warm sound, that you don't have when you play music from an Ipod.

These were five favourite items in my room. If you could make a list of five favourite items in your room, what would it look like? Leave it in the comments!

Have a nice day!

Autumn wishlist

Hi guys! I'm sorry I haven't blogged in a while, but I had a very bad case of bloggers block. My inspiration was gone and I had no idea what to write about. But I'm back now! Officially it's still summer, but with all the rain that's happening over here, it feels a lot like autumn, which means.. I HAVE A NEW EXCUSE TO GO SHOPPING! So, it's time for a new wishlist ^.^

I NEED a polka dot cardigan this autumn. But I haven't found one that I loved yet. I'm looking for something that looks like the one shown in the picture, but a little fluffier, if that makes sense :') If you know what I mean and you've seen one somewhere, please tell me in the comments!

I've always loved the idea of having an old record player and being able to enjoy old records, so you could understand how happy I was when my grandparents gave me their old one! I've already listened to the old Grease record my mom listened to when she was my age and I love it! I can't wait to go to second hand stores and buy some other records.

A Sherlock coat. Do I need to say more? SHERLOCK.

Yes, I already own a onesie, but one can never have enough onesies, right? Especially when they have polka dots on them and are inspired by Minnie Mouse.

I never really liked Dr. Martens shoes. I kind of hated them and thought they were far too manly and big. But recently my style has changed a bit and I've started to really like them. Especially the Dr. Martens shoes with flowers. Just a shame they're so expensive..

Did you know that I've done figure skating for a few years? So, of course I love the skater skirt! And yet, I still don't own any skater skirts. Need to change that soon. I'd love to pair them with some mickey mouse tights. I saw Little Mixes Jade Thirlwall wearing these and they're the cutest things ever!

And now I just need a job so I can afford all of this :'). What are some of the musthaves on your autumn wishlist? Tell me in the comments!

Have a nice day!
