Unfortunately I have been back in the Netherlands for the last few weeks. Back to work and back to wearing scarfs, gloves and an extra pair of leggings. My USA trip was amazing, I loved spending time with my potato baby as well as with friends and family. This time was the first time during the holiday season and experiencing Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed our time together, and just like always it’s really special to me.

I don’t know when I’ll be going back to see him again and hopefully he’ll be able to come visit too next year. For now it’s back to work, saving some money, working on one last cosplay for now, maybe even picking up a new sport and doing some socializing with my friends. I’m so excited!

Snowy glitter

Christmas comes early for me, normally we don’t put up too many things around Christmas at home. Just because it takes a lot of effort and afterwards it’s just a huge mess. This being the first time in the States around this time of the year it’s really amazing to see how much Christmas stuff is in stores right after Halloween.

Together with the boyfriend we got our, very own, first Christmas tree. We got a tiny white tree, decorated with white and silver ornaments. I love the snowy feel our tree gives, it’s perfect for winter.

Vanilla Light Morning

Good morning, it’s a little bit chilly, but it’s nice and sunny out. Last week I packed my suitcase and made a trip to the airport, hopped on the plane and off I was to see the boyfriend. I had been looking forward to my trip, normally I would only visit once a year but this time would be different. Earlier this year I made two very short trips, so I was really excited to be visiting for all of November.

I’m used to visiting during the warmer months, so it’s a little bit weird that I have to get used to the colder weather over here. Though, not as cold as back at home. I’m not really doing anything special, just spending time together and enjoying every minute of it. Whenever the boyfriend’s at work I get the chance to relax, sleep in, pamper myself with a Lush bath and a Starbucks frappuccino in the morning.

Princess without a voice ♡ Cosplay

Just a little snippet from when I dressed up as a mermaid princess. I love to cosplay and have been wearing different costumes to anime conventions since 2012. Ariel is definitely one of my favorite characters to cosplay. I first wore this costume at Animecon 2013, The Hague, to the convention prom. Wearing this dress truly makes me feel like a princess! The most fun part was styling the wig and creating the beautiful, gravity defying, bangs that Ariel has.

This picture was taken during an event for little children. I visited a school for their fairy tale themed week, read the story about the Little Mermaid with the kids and afterwards visited their classrooms and took a bunch of pictures with them. It was so much fun!

Magical Gel Polish

I’ve been wanting to try something like this for such a long time and now I finally had the chance to. This is Elite99’s Chameleon gel nail polish, it is a gel polish that changes color on temperature which gives a super magical effect.

I don’t really know how and why I decided to look up these kind of nail polishes, but I found myself browsing the web for temperature changing (gel) nail polishes.

I love the effect these nail polishes have, once I step outside in the cold my nails slowly turn purple, and when back inside they transition back to blue. I wish the colors were a little more opaque, but I think it can be fixed with a white base coat before applying the Chameleon polish. Can’t say this enough, but, it’s so magical.
