New Years Eve with the people I love

Girl looking outside with twinkling lights surrounding her

New Years Eve, new you. that’s what we all are hoping for.

Hi guys, I’m sitting by the dinner table with my family. My phone by my side calling all the people I care about. And of course writing a little thank you to all of you. This year I’m turning 20 and I’m deciding to close a chapter.

New Years Eve with my family

I am not spending my New Years Eve with friends. Because honestly I haven’t been surrounding myself with good people. I tell y’all this a lot, surround yourself with the people that support you. This year I’ve had to learn the hard way.

With more and more people getting to know who I am and fame lurking on my doorstep. I had to learn that not everyone has good intentions. Some people only want to be your friends because you have something they don’t.

It’s funny to see the people that hated me as a kid asking for a friend request on Facebook. A scenario we are all dealing with thanks to social media. But you know what I’m not going to let them take advantage of me and what I work for.

That’s why I’m not spending my new year with friends. But with my family and the people I care most dearly for. These people support me and what I do. That’s why I am surrounded by them. And of course with all of your,

Special thank you

And I also want to say thank you to all of you guys for being my friends this year. You can not imagine how much I love you all. You guys are my friends and I feel so blessed to have you all in my life.

XOXO Lisa

See you next year, Aka I’ll see tomorrow with a blogpost 🙂

How to stick to your new years resolutions

Girl walking down staircase in a blag lace dress

New years resolutions

Here I am laying on my bad struggling to get all my thoughts together. Wondering what in the hell I will be doing this new year. I’ve got a lot of ideas and thoughts. Like every year and everyone els. A new year is a new start and good intentions flow but it doesn’t mean I’ll stick to it.

But to be fear I’ve done really good this year. Getting myself a gym membership and actually going. I can’t complain. I started my blog and modelling career this year. And honestly I kept all the resolutions I normally wouldn’t. Even if I slug of a little sometimes I can say I’ve not done to bad for myself.

Looking at it now I can see exactly where I’ve changed.

Girl smiling sitting on white table with a view of brussels Listen to your gut

As a rationalist I let my mind speak before my hart can lead the way. But sometimes you should go with your gut feeling. I would never have had this blog if I listened to my head. Just jumping in the deep end and let your mind catch up along the way. Believe me it works.

Change

Don’t be afraid to go another direction then your initial thought. There’s nothing wrong with that. I am changing my constantly because I feel like it’s not perfect jet. And on the end of the day that’s fine. Don’t be afraid to change what you used to think and make it something new. If it’s not working why don’t you change the angle and make it amazing!

Believing I can

There is no switch to believe in yourself. It’s a process and it takes so much time. I am still learning this daily. I trust my own instincts more and more. And it’s just because every time I feel like I can’t do something I write about it. I tell you the truth. Letting out bad thoughts and feelings is so important if you want to succeed.

And if you want to know how I got my motivation back theres more on that hire. I read other fun post about new years resolutions on InTheFrow.com

5 signs he is’t mr right

Finding the one is every girls dream. Including me!  Even  if he is the 4th Hamsworrth brother, the most charming man on the plant. It doesn't make him relationship material
I know what you are thinking. Why can't I just find the right person and get over it? That's not how it works and OMG I wish it did.  But first let's identify what's wrong. Then we can see who is right. 
I have my fare share of bad relationships experience. From my first boyfriend, who turned out to gay.
To my last boyfriend who turned out to just want nudes. With he NEVER got! I get approached by guys every day. Not for being attractive. But I'm in the modelling industry. Guys that's a wrong dude magnet on it's one.
Not going anywhere with you
This is red flag number one. If I see this I should be running the opposite direction.
If he is hiding me there's something going on. Now I run, taken the fire escape if I need to. But don't go all creepy on him.
If I only have been dating for a week, I won't expect him to introduce me to his best friends and his parents. But if it's just not happening, leave!
Asking for sex
Lets be real. If he keeps bugging me for sex he isn't the one. Just because he has a six pack I won't be sleeping with him.  Come on hun keep yourself in check. It can happen. I think the 3 date rules not that bad.  But he shouldn't be asking it on the first date.

Talking about his ex
I know this may be obvious to most of you. But  he shouldn't be talking about his ex. Maybe he is really sweet. But you can't open your hart to someone who isn't ready.

How I got my motivation back

Motivation

I’ve been blogging for almost a year now and I really love what I do but am I doing this right? It’s a question I ask myself a lot. I wrote a post about bettering yourself and doing good but the question always is am I? I am a serious self critic as you guys know. Perfectionism is part of me and how I am as a person. Looking at what some people are putting up on the internet I feel like my content isn’t getting out there enough.

How I get a little bit more confidence

FullSizeRender
I'm a pretty confident person but sometimes I need a little boost just to get me through the day. I don't have perfect skin and I don't always look amazing (I'm not Beyoncé haha). There are days I want to feel just a little better. And even though we are all beautiful just the way we are sometimes we want just that tough of magic.
Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
Boost
Getting that little boost can come from a lot of places, it can be wearing a nice dress or having a cup of coffee in the morning. There are always little things that can make us feel a little better. For me it's wearing a full face of makeup. I feel very put together when I can look flawless and perfect. It's that little time you take just for yourself to best version of yourself.
Enhancing beauty
A lot of women with albinsm think their are hiding their true features when wearing makeup. But I feel like it's just enhancing what you've got and I definitely do this. But finding the right foundation to fit my skin town is a task on it's own. I've been to places looking orange a lot. Trust me my mum must have the picots.. But thanks to Clinique I found a foundation that fits my skin town and has SPF 15. The Superbalanced Silk Make Up SPF15 foundation gives my face a glorious effect. Not only is it a matt foundation it also  nourishes the dry spots on my fragile skin. I think this is one of those rare occasions where you are ever going to hear me rave about a foundation.
All day perfection
If I put the time and effort into it I want to look good all day. And I defiantly get this feeling with this foundation. I can wear it all day without feeling self conscious at all. With the perfect outfit and my coffee in my hand. I'm ready to rock the world.
Application
Even though I like taking my time to look nice once in a while. I don't want to take hours. Chasing your outfit the night before and having your space clean (new years resolution!) I feel like with this foundation I need 10 minutes to look my best.
I'm applying it with the Clinique foundation brush just in simple stroking motions. Luckily it doesn't need that much blending because no one has time for that. I also apply it under my eyes because it has this odd way of making me look less tired with is always welcome.
I need 2 to 3 coin size amounts of the foundation just for full converge. I do apply it down to my neck because I always have veins showing because of my pail skin.

Four things to do in Antwerp

IMG_1499

 

The fashion, the food, the museums... Everything you want is in Antwerp. This is my city so yes I'm a little biased. But darling this is where it's going on!

Café Impérial 

If you are in Antwerp you should definitely hop into café Imperial. It's got the best location with high street shops just outside your door and the luxury stores around the corner. What I love the most about this place is that it used to be a castle. It's  truly beautiful in there and it makes me feel like a princess. Plus the food is affordable and tastes soooooo good.

MoMu

If you are in doubt about Antwerp being the fashion place to be just go to the fashion museum paying resects to the biggest fashion designers from Belgium and also it's got very stunning art.

Toneelhuis

Every store on this square is amazing. From stores like Chanel and Louis Vuitton to great Belgian disigner stores like essential Antwerp. Walk around the streets and you will be amazed with what's there to see.

Pierre Marcolini

If you want to talk about Belgium you've got to talk chocolate and I know where to get the best chocolate in town! Pretty store nice macaroons and well chocolate haven. Spend some time tasting the wonderful chocolate for yourself. BTW in that same street you will find some very interesting stores 😉

You can do better

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset
I'm putting this out there, not only for myself but for every other person that will ever come across my blog.  We all watch other people do good and say it's because they are lucky, pretty, rich, smart...
We are humans and we always define other peoples success by blaming it on other factors not to diminish or hurt ourselves. But this is one thing I'm going to STOP doing next year and own up to my successes and failures.

Everyone can fuck off
Excuse my french but why are you caring what anyone thinks. When Steve Jobs quit school he didn't care did he? If you are passionate and hard working the only thing holding you back is others. This year I'm getting rid of all the toxic relationships and only keeping the ones that give me joy and happiness. It can't always be a fairy-tail world I know that but life is too short to have anyone bringing you down. i don't care what people think and hate comments don't hurt me but I still have people in my life that are too negative and make me unhappy. And it's time to let them go.
Time management
This coming year I'm gong to be adding time management to my blog. It's something I struggle with a lot. Yes, I'm productive and I get work done but I can do so  much more and this is the skill I will be learning this year and I'll be sharing what I've learned along the way. 
The best in the game
I don't like to say it a lot but I feel like I need to be as transparent as I can be. I look at the best in the game. In every aspect of my life I like looking at the people that succeeded. I'm going to always put the best and most successful people as role role-models. When I open one of my favourite blogs and look to their content, writing ability and design. I want to better my own. Just the same with studying,  I am looking to find the most successful and smartest people to look up to. Yes, maybe I'm setting the highest goals for myself but if you don't have something to look up to how the hell will you get better?
Success = work
You will never ever see success if you don't put the time and effort into it. Even the Kardashens work hard, just watch the show, you know what I mean. It feel like my mother has told me this so much but it only sunk in recently. Only when I started following big bloggers on youtube I realised how much these people work. Also I started watching a lot of study videos and looked at how these people achieve academic success . I learned this about 2 weeks ago and I think and I hope you guys are seeing an improvement in the content and blogposts I put out. I knew ti all along but let's just say it only sunk in now. 
Practice what you preach
This is primarily to myself but I still want you to hear this. Good advice for someone els should be something you are already doing. You're telling your friends go to the gym, why aren't you there then?

A relaxing week night

IMG_9120-e1482443286835
Nowadays we work so hard and we just need some reloading time. After a long day of class, blogging and studying I'm in the mood to relax.

 

Put my feet in the air and just feel like I'm in my little home spa.
IMG_9129
Latterly I've been loving different face masks. They give me this home spa feeling I really deserve. And I've found the perfect mask that does the trick, the L'Oréal Maske Pure Clay. The first thing I realised when I put it on is the amazing smell. It smells like you're entering a garden with green trees and birds singing haha. The consistency of this mask is really nice too. So if you feel like having some haven on your face go for it!
The little things like putting on a face mask and painting your nails are so importent to making you feel your best end perform your best. So if you feel tired and unproductive just get

 

IMG_9152
I feel like I need to do this more often. Sometimes I forget to just relax in the week because I've got so many thoughts flowing in my mind. In my experience productivity and ideas only come when you are completely relaxed and open minded. And it's something I'm learning to do day by day.

Letting go of your goals

IMG_8572
In all honest I am very bad at letting go of my goals. I always have been and will be bad at it. But I'm learning to let go, the past weeks I realised that the results you get can be good enough. You don't need to define your goals in numbers or quantities , but in the quality.
Lately I've had a hard time with this. I always expect more of myself. Not because my expectations are too high but because I know I can get there. Sometimes life just gets in the way and we should accept that. It's not always possible to reach your goal immediately. But I don't think there's an expiry date when it comes to perfection.
IMG_8540
 Not me

 

What if someone els got that result? I bet you would say its good, so way are you mad at yourself? This is also a perfectionism thing but its also just accepting that getting a curtain result isn't that all that bad. Don't give yourself a hard time, sometimes good is good and that's all to it.

 

IMG_8534
Put it into context
Be aware of your own needs and feelings don't just put hem away in a box. You can be honest with yourself if you where going through a hard time and you feel like you weren't performing optimal. Just put it into context. Be honest with yourself and tell yourself you didn't do it perfect because of personal issue

 

To me failure is not trying. If you are trying and working to get somewhere it's simply not failing. I feel like every time I did't reach a goal, I learned form it. And that seems more importent to me than reaching it. Bettering yourself is the most importent skill you can ever have. Remember that.

Jumper dress obsession

I know I’m not the first or the last fashion/style blogger to talk about this.But finding the right jumper dress is so freaking hard! Just because I’m very specific when I buy clothes, I know what I want.

If you have been following me for some time you know I make my list with exactly what I want. But this has been on my radar for ever, so when I saw it I physically couldn’t leave it.

I’ll be honest with y’all I love the trend but I’m kind of afraid to buy a high end jumper dress. I don’t know if it will stay trendy. That’s way I didn’t wanted a high street version. But you know me I had a vision in my head.

I wanted knitted, white, warm and it had to be oversized. So finally I found it.

It’s exactly what I wanted!

hipsters – sweater dress

zara – bag

boots – close up
