Favorite Artists

Hey! Today, I want to talk about my favorite artists who’s music I listen to very frequently. It’s not like a top 10 or something, it’s not in order from who I like least to who I like most. So let’s begin!

th

Bruno Mars, he is one of those artists that can make you feel like crying with his songs, or feel happy as ever. His songs range from emotional love songs, to funk. I don’t know much about him personally, but I do know he’s a really funny guy and I love that.

BASTILLE, my favorite band! Their music is so unique, and they’re all so talented,  you won’t find any band like them.They’re from the UK, and they’re accent is just too adorable. Dan (man on the left) is the lead singer of the band. I mean, just look at them! How can you not love them? I listen to their music every day.

Shakira, this woman! She is in my opinion the sexiest female artist of the world. Even at her age (she’s close to 40 years old). She sings in Spanish and English, I prefer her singing in Spanish because I think it suits her better. She translates her English songs to Spanish a lot of times.

Paul van Haver AKA Stromae, is a French-Belgian singer and dancer. He’s been making music since he was about 19, but he got famous after ‘Alors on danse’. His newest album is called ‘Racine Carrée’ and it’s one of the best albums I’ve ever owned. Every song is so unique, no one ever made music and lyrics like his. His music is very upbeat dancy most of the time, and the lyrics extremely clever (they make you realize things you never even thought about). He’s currently taking a break.

Michael Jackson, the King of Pop. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing I think he is. I’ve watched tons of documentaries about this man, and let me tell you, he is just extraordinairy. Of course, a lot of people think he was a weirdo and a pedophile (I don’t), but let’s all agree on this: he was and always will be the greatest of all time.

Coldplay, another UK band. I love their music, it’s a band that just keeps getting better and better. When I was younger I only knew them from the song ‘Viva la Vida’, but then their new albums came and I heard ‘Magic’ and ‘Paradise’ etc. I began to fall in love with them. My favorite song however is ‘Every tear is a waterfall’, such a piece of art!

Avril Lavigne, used to be a tomboy, releasing songs that were (in my opinion) a bit emo ish. Then her girly side took over and her looks did change a lot. To be honest, I love both sides of her because she is still herself. Her voice is angelic, she can reach really high notes. She’s been ill for a little while with Lime Disease but she is on the road to recovery, good for her!

 

Well, that was it for today. Now you know what kind of music I listen to 😉

Depression is real

Alright everyone, today’s post is going to be a bit…different.

On December 30th 2016, a 12 year old girl named Katelyn Nichole Davis live streamed her own suicide. The reason for her suicide was, in her own words, because she thought she was worthless, not good enough, not pretty enough and nobody cared about her. You can read about her home situation on her blog (look up: Diary of a broken doll).

Depression is something I myself have dealt with. I used to cut my wrists with a knife, and thought about suicide lots of times. With time, I got myself to talk about it with my mom, grandparents and boyfriend. They helped me get out of my depression. I still suffer from social anxiety, but I’m working on improving that also.

If you suffer from depression and suicidal thought, please, just please talk about it with someone. Doesn’t matter who, but try to talk about it with your parents first. They most likely had no idea about you being depressed, because most people tend to hide it. Do it NOW, before it is too late. Thank you.

XOXO Brigitte

Shower Routine

Hey! I’m pretty sure that showering is one of my favorite hobbies, I’m one of those people that says to themselves “Okay, let’s take a quick shower, 15 mins tops”, and then taking a shower for at least 30 mins (contemplating life and having conversations with myself is usually the cause of this lmao).

I thought it’d be nice to let you guys in on what products and brand I usually use when I shower, and after. So let’s begin!

Before I shower I always brush my hair, as it tangles all the time. 20170104_164912

Then I use this makeup remover by Nivea, it doesn’t sting and it’s very water-based so my skin doesn’t get oily when I use it. Also, it just works really well for me because it removes every type of makeup.

After that I go into the shower and wash my hair with an Andrélon shampoo, that stimulates the volume of the hair. This is my favorite Andrélon shampoo, cause my hair tends to have no volume at all if I don’t blow dry it after taking a shower, and sometimes I just don’t feel like blow drying my hair cause I read it dries out your hair.Then I brush my hair again, and then use a conditioner (this one happens to be one by Shwarzkopf). I don’t have any preference of conditioner because they all work the same for me. After that I brush my hair again XD. I wash my body with this shower gel from ‘I love…’. In the picture this one doesn’t look all that big but trust me, it really is. Also it has a really strong scent that reminds me of the tropics. If you don’t like strong scents for showering, don’t buy any of this brand 😉

When I’m done taking a shower, my skin smells nice and all, but I like to take extra care of it. I use a lot of body lotions and cremes, but this is by far my favorite. Reasons for that are 1: it has a really nice scent that last pretty long, say 4-5 hours. 2: it makes my skin feel litteraly like velvet, so soft! 3: it doesn’t take long for it to draw into my skin. Now, I’m not saying this works for every skin type but I would definately recommend this body creme! Oh and by the way, it’s not for your face 🙂

Well, that’s it for today! I hope someone out there found this helpfull and maybe someone has any nice products they use and would recommend? Leave some in the comments below if you like 🙂

Goodnight!

Current Situation

Hey guys! I felt like blogging today so, here we go!

I would like to fill you in on what I am currently doing, in terms of school and work etc. So June 2016 I graduated from high school, and at that point I was just really done with studying. I was happy because I made it, but on the other hand I kinda felt worn out. But my mom urged me to start studying that following September, so I did…

Bad discision. Because when I had to choose my next study, I was already so busy with trying to get good grades at high school. I made the discision to start a study called ‘Medische Hulpverlening’ way too quick, and after only a hundred days I quit the study. I’ve learned from this and it won’t happen again as I’ll follow group courses to find a study that fits my talents, interest and personality. I’m starting those courses this January 16th.

My next study will probably start September 1st, because almost every study starts on that date. I want to be motivated, and in order to get there I figured that I should start by getting a job. Since November 2016 I’m a volunteer at a Care Center and I love working with those people. I usually shop with a lady who has suffered brain damage when she was born. But now I’m looking for a paid job, and probably it’s gonna be at a florist as a friend of mine works there too.

And that’s it, that is my current situation regarding school and work. I’ll add this post to a new category called ‘Work and Study’.

First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

Hello everyone! Happy belated New Year! I’m really excited to finally start my very own blog. I’ve been thinking about it all of 2016 and now that it’s 2017, I decided to finally do it.

So let’s start by  properly introducing myself.

My name is Brigitte and I’m 18 years old. I live in a small town called Zwartewaal, which lies in a little country called The Netherlands. I live with my parents, my sister and my sister’s daughter. Also, I own a sweet dog called Rocky.

me

 

The reason I got so into blogs is actually because of one girl who I really look up to. Her name is Marzia Bisognin. She is a 24 year old woman who started out as Cutiepiemarzia on YouTube, but she changed her username to Marzia recently. Be sure to check her out if you love fashion, home decoration, and all sorts of fun stuff! I found out about her having a blog and although I don’t really like reading, I found myself reading her and other people’s blogs for hours on hours, which is crazy for me haha.

My life is pretty calm and standard, I like to take each day as it comes. I have a lot of hobbies, such as painting, singing, and going out with friends. These daily things I enjoy are the things I plan on talking about with you guys on this blog.

Just a quick little detail; I don’t own a professional camera of any sort, so I just take pictures with my Phone (it’s quality being quite good). Also, for all the Dutch people out there who might be reading this and think “How is this girl’s English so good?”, that’s because my dad is actually from England and he taught me to speak and write English since I was really little. And most importantly; lots of people speak English and I want people to be able to read and understand my blog 🙂

So that’s it for my first post, if you think this was interesting be sure to follow me here and also on my social media! I’ll try to post on this blog weekly but I can make any promises just yet.

XOXO Brigitte
