Valentine's Special: Favourite Bloggers and Youtuber

Happy Valentine's Day my lovelies! Today is a day to enjoy with the people you love, be it your other half, your family or close friends. Today is also the day that I spread my love by giving some to the wonderful bloggers and youtubers who I love!

Awesome Bloggers!

Bash Studio

This blog is written by Alyson, someone who does amazing and really cute DIY's that aren't too difficult to do. Besides that she also talks about the things she loves and finds beauty in, all accompanied by wonderfully well taken pictures. I only started following her a couple of weeks ago, and I can simply tell she's a good egg! You should definitely follow her on Instagram, her colourful pictures are my little happy moments of the day . Right now, my favourite post of her is the one where she talks about donuts because, well, donuts are simply one of the best things to have ever been invented! You can find the link to that post here. Be sure to also check out her latest post about Valentine's Day, you can find that link here. Make sure to show her some love! 

Glamorous Glitter

If you're looking for someone to help you with your blog, look no further! This blog is by Imka, someone who calls herself an expert in SEO and all things blogging. And let me tell you, she most definitely is! She has a lot of wonderful things to offer and eventhough my blog is only slowly growing, I definitely think her tips made a great difference. Please check out her latest post, you can find it here, I promise you you won't regret it! Her latest post is about all the blog resources that can be useful for you as a blogger, something I'm really looking forward to to check out. If you find her posts helpful, be sure to let her know!

Nerdy Mermaid

This is possibly my favourite blog, mainly because it's so random! Amy is, as you can tell by her blog, a nerd, who loves to write about all the nerdy things that interest her. I myself am not really a nerd, but there are definitely some things that interest me, and most of my friends are massive nerds! (we call our group 'The Unicorn Squad', what do you want more?) So to keep up, I read her blog. The moment I decided to start following her, is when I saw her post about the things she got for Christmas, you can find the link here, for the simple reason that she's also a fan of Tom Hiddleston. I also strongly advise you to look him up if you don't know who I'm talking about, he's a brilliant actor! My favourite post is the one where she talks about the things she's good at, you can find that post here. If you like nerdy things or fun posts about random things, be sure to check her blog out! 

Favourite Youtuber

Brooke M Richards

Again, this is someone who I only discovered about a month ago, when she made a video about how social media is controlling our life, you can find this video here. I honestly don't understand how she hasn't gotten more subscribers yet, her videos are simply amazing and have a really deep meaning to them. Before I started blogging, I didn't have Instagram nor Twitter, so I understand her viewpoints completely. I never really have been addicted to social media and it's a massive pet peeve of mine when people are on their phones when I'm together with them. I can simply resonate with all her videos, and that's what I love so much about her. She says what I think! Also some advice from me to you, especially on this day; learn to think for yourself! I'm constantly seeing this retarded sheep/pack mentality around me and it's driving me insane! I think I might do a post about this to make clear what exactly I mean by this. Be sure to check Brooke out, her videos are deeply inspiring, especially for those who feel lost.

Who are your favourite bloggers/youtubers? Let's show eachother some love! Do you have a post you would like me to check out? Be sure to post the link below! Make sure to make this a happy day! :)

How to have a great Valentine's Day...When you're single

Within 2 weeks it's that time of the year again, where all the couples are enjoying their time together and all the singles... Yeah, basically, being single on Valentine's Day sucks when you don't know how to have a good time on your own (No, not that way... I mean... maybe... if you prefer :p). The best thing about being single is that you can do whatever you want and you don't have to think about you're other half. These are some of the favourite things I would love to do on Valentine's Day.

Morning: Have a GIANT pamper session

What better way to love yourself by treating yourself on a good pamper session. Righ after when you've woken up (which could be around 9, but 12 is fine as well), run yourself a nice, hot bath. Take your favourite bath stuff, and prepare yourself to have a relaxing time. 

For my bath, I like to use a bathbomb or bubble bar from Lush, the one you can see in the picture is Avobath
As an extra treat I also like to wear a face mask from time to time. The one I'm wearing in the picture is the Dead Sea Minerals Anti-Stress Mask from Freeman, a brand that promotes cruelty-free beauty BUT as I've recently found out, does get their ingredients from companies that DO test on animals. If you know any good cruelty-free skincare brands that aren't too expensive (and you can get them in Belgium), please let me know! 
Then I just do the usual body- and hair cleaning, I think we all know how to keep ourselves clean ;). 
To relax, I like to listen to music, read, or watch a good serie. All things that aren't a good idea to do in a bath so be careful!
After my bath I like to make myself look all fancy by putting on my favourite makeup and nailpolish and wear my 'sexiest' outfit on, because I can. 

Can we all just take a look at what I got for Christmas to do my nails with? It works really well, especially the last step really makes my nails shine, but when I first saw it, I thought it was something... different... It's the Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System! :) (NE: je kan dit kopen in het Kruidvat) 

Afternoon: Be together with the people you love

Valentine's Day is the day of love, whether it's romantic love, or the beautiful relationship you share with your family and friends. It's a day to be grateful for all the love and happiness the people around you have given to you. 
This awesome pic comes from 
Here's a picture of me and my best friends from last year in Portugal (can you tell I love llamas?). What I like to do the most is inviting some friends and catch up while drinking some góód stuff. To me, being together and e.g. playing games (yep, I'm that kind of person) is much better than go partying and not being able to speak properly.

Evening: Watch your favourite movie/ Binge-watch your favourite serie

Something I love to do, is watching my favourite series in the evening. At the moment, I'm following a lot of series at the same time. The Vampire Diaries is the first serie I ever started to watch, even though it's not the best serie out of my list. I might do a top 3 of my favourite series to watch (and no, Prison Break, Game of Thrones nor Walking Dead are part of that, but I'm sure they're great series as well). 

If you recognize this picture of my favourite serie, I love you, you're awesome, and you deserve the best Valentine's Day EVER

My Favourite Snacks/Drinks: Tea, Hot Chocolate, Ice cream (duhh!), Pop Corn;Wild Organic Beauty has a great recipe on coconut popcorn; you can find it here.

I wish you all a great Valentine's Day, love may just be lurking around the corner. What do you do to fight the single-blues on Valentine's Day? Let me know in the comments! :)
