Treat Yo Self 2015

Posted on 8 March 2015

It's been another hectic mommy & Eddie weekend, and I'm a bit late on sharing this video here on the blog. I posted this on Friday, and I do post videos every Tuesday and Friday.

Anyway, last weekend my husband and I had a full date-day in Oslo, and I obviously did a bit of shopping. I had been a very good girl in February up until that day and I had been saving my money for that day. Although I live in the second biggest city in Norway, it is much smaller than Oslo and they have so many stores and we don't have. I got to cross a few items of my wishlist on this trip, and I also found some beautiful things I didn't even know I wanted. I am extremly happy with my haul, and I'm also glad to report that I did stick to my budget and it feels good. All in all it was a great day as well, and it was lovely to just be the two of us, which is a rare treat.

So far I'm also happy with the whole 'treat yo self'-idea. I've only been doing it for a few months now so it's a bit hard to tell if it's something I'll be able to stick to, but if you want an update later I'll do that. I was just sick of shopping so much that I didn't appreciate everything I got. I already have a pretty big makeup collection, and let's be honest there's no need to fill it up with things I don't use. I also believe it will save me money in the long run, because all that little shopping adds up surprisingly quick. I also think it's easier to save money when I have something to look forward to. I'll probably do this twice a year, because I don't think it's realistic for me to only shop, and treat myself, once a year.

As you may very well know I'm trying to lose weight, and I think it's a good idea to incorporate 'treat yo self' into that as well. I know I'm quick to think "just this one time" when it comes to sweets, and that needs to stop, and I think it will be easier to for example skip cinema candy and desert at restaurants when I can always do it on treat yo self-day in the future.

That was a bit rambly, so if you guys want an explanation/update video I would love to do that. As always, I would love it if you subscribed to my channel and you'll always be the first to know when I post a new video. I also want to hear it if you guys have any other video requests.

February Favorites

Posted on 4 March 2015

I haven't gotten off on the best foot in the world of favorites this year. Not that the 4th can really be considered being well into a month, but I do like having my favorites up at the end of the month but it just didn't work out that way this time because we went away for the weekend. But for the first time in a long time I'm ahead of my filming schedule, and it feels great! That means new videos every Tuesday and Friday, so be sure to check in on YouTube on those days.

But getting back to favorites. Not alot of beauty favorites this month either, but I did discover (and rediscover) a few things I'm feeling very passionate about. Leave it upto a beauty blogger to feel actual passion about products! I hope you enjoy my favorites videos because they're one of my favorites to film. However, if you want to see something else don't hesistate to tell me your requests.

As always, I would love it if you would subscribe to my channel. I made it a goal to reach 1000 subscribers this year and there's still a long way to go!
