Long time no see. I’m sorry. I don’t really believe in new years’ resolutions, but I’ll make consistent blogging one. Let’s pinky promise on that.
Despite me not believing in new years’ resolutions, I do believe in the new year being a fresh start. I like changing things up a little when the new year comes along. It just always feels like the right time to do it.
I decided to start by throwing my old journal away and creating my own one; I started my very own bullet journal. Bullet journaling has become this hot new thing last year, but I held back from doing it, because let’s be honest, I’m not very good at it. Seeing all these perfectly designed journals with perfect handlettering got me believing it’s something I can’t do. Of course that’s complete bullsh*t. Everyone can do it, including me and you. And let me tell you, it’s so. much. fun. From going on Pinterest to get inspiration to creating something yourself. It has definitely become a new, loved hobby. It gives me the opportunity to be more creative and that’s something to be encouraged. So to everyone in doubt if they can do it, let me show you my perfectly imperfect bullet journal.
Second of all, you might have noticed I changed up my blog a little bit, including the link. Right now you can find me on http://www.anouksuzanne.com which makes me sound so professional, doesn’t it? Investing in your own growth is so important and I’m so glad I decided to invest in this blog. Now I really have to stick to our pinky promise. ”Writing is something that can’t be done on commando”, my friend Sterre said the other day. I want to try and blog every week, but I also want to create quality over quantity, so hold it with the pitchforks if I don’t post every week. I’m just extremely excited for this new era. Since starting this blog in 2014 (!!!!) I’ve always wanted my own link and now, four years later, I finally decided it’s the right time. You can’t see it, but I’m doing a little happy dance right now.
And last but not least, I picked my room to be the next victim. I was planning on moving to Amsterdam in February, but life decided it’s not my time yet, so I’ll be living with my parents for at least another six months. Of course they’re more excited about that than I am, but instead of dwelling on the negative I naturally decided to give my room an entire make over. I said naturally, because I have changed my room an uncountable amount of times already. It’s something I got from my mom. Ever since I can remember she’s been changing the interior of our house on almost a weekly basis. I can’t blame her, because she’s really good it. The only thing I blame her for is passing it on to me.
A painted wall and some decorating later my room is finally finished. I’m someone who gets influenced by surroundings very easily. Before giving my room a make over it was quite chaotic and there was no unity. There was a lot going on on my walls and it was always a mess, which made me feel like a chaotic mess all the time. Right now everything’s a lot more organized and I actually like spending time in my room. So without any further ado, enjoy these pictures of my room. P.S. Shoutout to my parents for being so selfless and spending their entire friday and saturday painting everything.
Here’s to new surroundings, changes and beginnings. I challenge you to do the same.
All my love,
