I bought a Bullet Journal

I finally bought a Bullet Journal! I’ve been seeing a lot of beautiful Bullet Journal posts and I was always wondering whether I should or should not buy one. I am a very creative person, but I always thought I wasn’t good enough to start a Bullet Journal. I didn’t have the most beautiful handwriting or my drawings weren’t always that pretty. I always thought about the negative parts until Sarah started posting Bullet Journal pictures on her Snapchat story.
Sarah is such a creative person, she has an amazing job at Lush, a beautiful Instagram feed and the best YouTube channel ever. She started her Bullet Journal in November, and she started posting pictures of her Bullet Journal on Snapchat. I saw these stories and I started feeling very creative and I wanted to buy a Bullet Journal as well. I talked about it to her, and she encouraged me to buy one. That said, I was looking up pictures on Pinterest for inspiration and now I have a beautiful Bullet Journal Board on my Pinterest.

I was talking to Sarah about her Bullet Journal in January, but I didn’t buy one immediately. In January I had my exams so it wasn’t the best idea to go buy one because then I knew for sure that I wasn’t going to study at all. I was already having some difficulties with studying because I got distracted easily and everything was more interesting than my summaries. But, after my exams, I finally bought a Bullet Journal.

My Bullet Journal is from Action and it only costs €2 which is very cheap. It contains 150 pages so I can definitely write and draw a lot!


I also bought some cute pens so I could make my Bullet Journal very colourful. The pens that I bought are €1.49 per set and I bought them at Kruidvat.


I also bought some cute stickers. I saw them at Kruidvat as well and I couldn’t put them down. They looked so cute and adorable, I just had to have them! They are €0.49 and they are from Diana Leeflang’s collaboration with Kruidvat. 
And the last things that I use are a black fineliner pen (0.4) and a mechanical pencil. I use a mechanical pencil because it’s a smaller pencil so it’s easier to draw fine lines. 


The last thing that I wanted to put in this blog post are the links to the inspiration I got from other people as well as my Pinterest Board:
I am definitely going to write more Bullet Journal posts because I really like Bullet Journaling and let me know whether you have a Bullet Journal or not and maybe send me some inspiration!

Saving Grace | Release Day Blitz


Blitz: Saving Grace
Author: Aoife Marie Sheridan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Dates: 22nd of February
Hosted by: Ultimate Fantasy Book Tours

Blurb
Grace knows that the only way she can survive life is to bury her past. But nothing stays buried forever... It’s been two years since she lost so much. Two years since she started a new life, in a new college, with a new group of friends. Two years, and now her troubles are rushing back. When Derek walks into Grace’s life, he makes her feel things she’d hoped never to feel again. The box she hid all her secrets in is opening, and Grace might not be able to keep it shut this time. As each of her traumas resurfaces, Grace isn’t sure having Derek at her side is enough to save her. And if he’s not, Grace isn’t sure she’ll come out the other side fully intact. If you like “The Problem with Forever” by Jennifer L Armentrout or “Hopeless” by Colleen Hoover, then Saving Grace will feed your addiction for a romance with real-life struggles.

Sentient | Review

Title: Sentient
Series: The Mentalist Series #2
Author: Kenechi Udogu
Pages: 155 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Rating: ★★★★

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Kenechi Udogu!

Sentient is the sequel to Aversion and continues the story of Gemma and Russ. Gemma finally discovered that she’s a Progressive Empath and is now trying to figure out how to work with her new abilities. She doesn’t really know what to think of her and Russ’ Sentient link and she’s also plagued with nightmares…

Sentient is an amazing sequel and I couldn’t wish for a better sequel. Sentient starts were Aversion left off and it’s easy to follow. You get immediately sucked into Gemma’s world and her problems. Sentient, like Aversion, is a fast-paced book with an interesting theme.

I really liked that there was some good character development. Gemma was really unsure of her abilities and her Sentient link with Russ, but at the end of the book she was more confident and trusted her Sentient link more than in the beginning. Russ has always been good to Gemma and has always been there for her. I think it would be so frustrating for Russ to be in love with Gemma and he’s not allowed to touch her. But, like the good friend he is, he gives Gemma her space. I really like Gemma and Russ’ relationship and I cannot wait to read more about the two of them.

Sentient was such a good book and I cannot wait to read the third book, Keepers!

Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask | Review

Brand: Lush 
Product: Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mash
Price: €11.50 for 75 gr
Rating: ★
*3.5/5*

Review

I've always wanted to try out a Lush face mask because I see people on my Instagram using them and it always looks so cool! The second reason that I wanted to try out Lush face masks is that Lush is a cruelty-free brand and they have a lot of vegan products. I think that it's so cool that these face masks are freshly made and that they are anti-animal cruelty!


I was doing some research on the Lush face masks and I came across this website giving a top 12 Best Lush face masks. I chose the Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask because of its effect. It should help with redness, it's an acne-fighting mask and it has restorative qualities.

The Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask is a cruelty-free and vegan face mask that contains the following ingredients:
These ingredients come from Lush' website.

When I first opened the lid, I wasn't impressed by the smell. It's a special kind of smell and I'm not that fond of it. I don't really mind that the smell isn't that great because when you wash off the face mask, you don't really smell it anymore. When I used the face mask, I used a generous amount of the product and left it on for about 10 minutes. After the first time, my skin felt really soft and kind of calm? I don't know how to say this, but this face mask has a calming effect. 


I tried this product for an entire month because that's how long you can keep it. The face masks are freshly made so of course there's an expiration date. I used the face mask 2 times a week. The first time my skin felt smooth, but after trying it for the second time I noticed that I had some dry patches on my forehead. I have these dry patches regularly so I don't really think that these patches are because of the face mask.

After a month, I feel like that this face mask was really relaxing and calming. It was really nice to use it 2 times a week and it became sort of like a routine. I really like the face mask because it makes my skin feel softer after removing the face mask. I cannot wait to try out another face mask from Lush!
