Blogmas 24 … Merry Christmas !

” It’s the most magical time of year “

Like the song goes ” it’s the most wonderfull time of year “, everybody is having some magical days.

Everybody !

Everybody, the whole world BUT

ME

Weeks before Christmas

Weeks before Christmas, everybody is so looking forward to the holiday season. Planning what to eat on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Planning what to buy for family and friends. Where to spend the holidays, where to go shopping etc.

And than there’s the Christmas tree. Buying a new tree (if it’s a real one), or putting your plastic one again. New decorations or all the decorations you already have collected before?

All those things, give so much stress for me. And really I’m totally not ready to celebrate Christmas or New Year.

Christmas tree

So this year, I was quite early putting my tree up and putting decorations in the tree. I didn’t spend a lot of time, but everybody is loving my tree so I’m happy. I did something good this year !

Here’s a little trowback of when I set my tree up.

Christmas music

I really love Christmas music, like I wrote in my blogmas earlier this week. I can’t stop listening to the Christmas album of Lady Antebellum.

It’s still so great, every time I put it on.

Christmas spirit

I have to admit my Christmas spirit is going off and on, off and on. Some moments I really love all the things about Christmas is coming, other days I can really sit back and wish all those days were over.

Like today … after seeing the lightning parade yesterday I felt some Christmas magic. Today I kind of lost it again. I don’t really have the feeling that it’s Christmas Eve today. Christmas tomorrow, OMGosh !

Christmas Eve

Well, you might guess … I’m sitting here at my table to write my blogmas (blogmas 23 and blogmas 24) insteat of celebrating Christmas with family.

Everyone on my personal Facebook is posting pictures and sending messages of them having a great diner and playing games together. I kind of put away my iPhone for the rest of the evening.

All my friends and family are sitting at a table to have diner and have a great time with each other. Well, I’m here having a ‘great’ time at my computer.

No plans today. I kind of missed not beeing at work. The only thing I did today was thinking, thinking, thinking and sleeping. Really not in the mood and not having the spirit of Christmas.

Most people with autism feel lonely and don’t like the holidays … well I’m one of those pleople.

Grinch

Okay, don’t get me wrong ! I’m not the GRINCH ! I’m not going to steal christmas from everyone. I just having a day and evening like any other sunday.

Maybe next year will be different.

So different this year

Now it’s the first year without my granny to celebrate the holiday, so another reason for me to not like the holidays this year.

I really love things that I know, and things that are familier. Now this year everything changed since my granny passed. A thing this #aspie girl really hates. All those changes, I hate changes in my life.

Christmas Day

Tomorrow some family will come over to eat. They will come around 2 pm in the afternoon. So I have plenthy of time to sleep and take a nap after lunch to clear my head before they come.

They are so loud, and I just don’t like all that hugging and all that kissing. So my plan for tomorrow is to come downstairs later than they arrive so I can skip that part. Hopefully.

The idea that I will not have internet access the afternoon, and I will be stuck at the table, makes my so scared.

Christmas Day outfit

To escape from all the dressing stress tomorrow morning I already put aside my outfit for tomorrow.

I will be wearing my normal black skinny jeans from JDY, black scarf from Zara (if it’s to cold I have something extra).

I will also wear my Christmas jumper by H&M, that I bought a few days ago.

Meowy Christmas to all of you ! 

For shoes I’m still in doubt. I have 2 options but they are both loafers. I will be chosing between these 2 …

Golden loafers from ‘Marco Tozzi’, new collection available at Schoenen Torfs (Belgium)

Gucci look-a-like from Steve Madden, winter collection available at Schoenen Torfs

The party is at my brothers house, so first I have to wear my old Timberland boots to go to all the dirth to get there (new building). So I will wear one of them inside, and maybe I’ll take the other pair with me.

The rest of the day will be hard, sitting there with all the screaming, movie playing, music playing, family talking etc. Maybe I’ll go home between all the food and watch ‘Olaf’s frozen Adventure’ on television.

Or maybe, I’ll come back here to blog, I will see.

But for now …

 

Merry Christmas to all of you !
Have a magical Christmas Eve and enjoy the time with your family and friends!

Love, Lucy xx

Blogmas 23 … Tractor lightning parade

I have to be honest … when I think about ‘a lightning parade’ I think of Fantilussion at Disneyland Paris or the Electrical Parade in Walt Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom.

BUT

Here in Belgium, we have our own kind of lightning parade around the holiday season. As I live on the countryside and not in a big city, we here have a TRACTOR lightning parade every year.

Tractors (old and new ones) covered in lights, 1000 of lights.

Tractor Lightning Parade @ Werchter, Belgium

So yesterday evening, we here had a tractor parade in the small village of Werchter. A parade over a few villages, and a party after the parade.

Year after Year, I really wanted to go and see all those lights in real life.

As you know I have autism, so I was always to scared to go. All the different lights, all the noices, all the different music playing at the same time, too much people, cold, waiting while surrounded by 100 or more people.

I want to go, I want to go, I’m not going, I’m not going … OKAY I’m going

So yesterday, I had planned to go and see all the tractors. During the day, I was constantly thinking ” I’m going, I’m going not, I’m going, I’m going NOT “.

I was kind of horrible having all those different ideas during the day. In the morning I had do  do some grocery shopping and I was so stressed out by all the lines in the stores, all the people … that I needed some time alone.

Around 3pm I made up my mind and decided to go and see all the tractors mysefl (instead of seeing pictures from everybody on Facebook).

Tractor Lightning Parade it is !

I took my iPhone, extra charger, scarf, warm jacket and gloves and joined my brother to Werchter, to see all the tractors. Yess, if you are a farmers daughter you still have some little thing about tractors.

Maybe for most of you it’s not the right combination of beeing a lifestyleblogger (fashionblogger in future) and blog about seeing some tractors. For me it’s a good combination. As I’m moving out of this farm in a few months, the love for tractors I take with me.

As you know … NO LIFE WITHOUT FARMERS 😉

The last few days I kind of lost the magic of the Christmas season. I guess it came because we had early snowfal in December and now it’s so dark, warm and rainy outside.

But I have to admit, yesterday evening I felt the whole Christmas spirit again.

I still have friends with tractors, kind of like the song of Rodney Attins is about me
Friends with tractors – Rodney Atkins

Let’s go and see some tractors.

Some of the tractors were so beautiful decorated, other had just the basic lights.

More tractors, and more tractors to come

I’m so sorry for all the overload of tractors right now, and sorry for the not great quality but I’m saving money to buy a camera 😉 so now I only have my iPhone 

Next stop

After all the tractors where leaving in Werchter, we went to see the real parade on the street somewhere in an other city (village).

We drove a few minutes, and waited there in Tremelo (the city where Father Damian lived, sorry for the historylesson).

We waited a few minutes till the parade arrived. Now we saw the whole parade and not only the tractors, and the leaving part of the parade.

Parade

As I have an Iphone to take pictures, I didn’t took pictures during the parade. I knew that they were all not going to be great and beautiful. So I filmed the whole parade.

Okay, you might find this all boring, and I can understand. If I had lived in a city or in another country I wouldn’t be there yesterday. It’s something for a country(farmers)girl like me.

Because of all the tractors, I will only share the whole parade if you want to see it so badly 😉 Please leave a comment, if you like to see the movie I took last night with all the tractors passing on the street.

One thing I didn’t like, was that there were tractors without christmas music. It would be better and funnier to watch if all the tractors were playing a Christmas song like before the start in Werchter.

A girl with autism and this ?

Well, it was a hard time beeing there. That’s TRUE ! OMG, all those lights, ,different lights, all the colors, all the people, all the different kind of music … AND that all at the same time. It was kind of the nightmare I was scared for, and it was true.

Here’s a little movie I took with everything around me. I felt like a psychco, and feeling to get crazy standing there !

This was the moment before the parade started.

I had a great time yesterday evening but it was also a big nightmare for me with my autism. So today I had a very bad morning. So much pain, so much emotions, not really wanted to wake up and do some stuff.

Next year?

Okay, let me be clear ! This was a once in a lifetime event for me. If I want to go back next year, please hold me and lock me up ! It was so beautiful but not worth all the pain I felt all day.

So no, I will not go back next year. I will stay at home, comfy and cosy in my PJ’s and watching a movie.

So this was #blogmas 23 of yesterday and a Christmas tradition here in Belgium.

Hope it was okay to see all the tractors. I can totally understand if you hated it.

Love Lucy xx

 

Please note … I’m so sorry for all the tractors in this blog ! 

Blogmas 22 … I’ve been waiting for this day for months now !

December 22 today … the day I wanted it to be since summer time ! It’s not a big surprice if you’ve been following my blog earlier this month.

So what’s so special about today ???

FULLER HOUSE season 3.2

So THANK you to Netflix for this new part of season 3 of Fuller House ! I’ve been waiting to see the next episodes like forever. It was a long time since summer, but today is THE day.

This afternoon I started to watch the first 2 episodes, and after writing this blog I will continue watching.

Just for a moment I forget all the life around me, all the stress I have, all the pain I have, finally I have time to take a breath and RELAX !

IMG_6024.JPG

After 2 episodes I’m so happy to see the next ones later this evening.

SPOILER ALERT !

If you want to start seeing Fuller House, please ignore the next lines 😉

When they took that flight to Japan to go to Steve’s wedding, and when Steve took place next to DJ … I knew Steve would not get married to CJ. It’s kind of sad for Matt how proposed to DJ in Japan, so they broke up. 

After putting this blogmas online … I’m temporary ‘out of the office’ … ‘out of my life’ to watch the next episodes !

Love Lucy xx

Blogmas 19 … Spending Christmas in bed?

Skipping Christmas this year?

The closer Christmas is coming, the worst my pain is getting.

Yesterday I had a day off but it was a day full of appointements with psychiatrist and psychologist and a stop at my workplace. A day where I took one bus after the other, and was so tired at night.

Today I also had a day off, and most of my day I spend in bed. I had so much pain again, after a bizzy day.

Now I just finished writing 16 christmas cards (see blogmas 18) and now I have to write this blog with one hand. I can’t use my right hand at the moment 😮 So shocking, another stadium in my pain ???

This blogmas will be a short one, because I’m going to bed after taking some more pain killing pills. (hope they work !)

Tomorrow I’ll make an appointement to see some doctor specilalized in rheumatism or fibromyalgia. This is not normal for a 32 year to be in bed all day. Okay, my autism could make me tired, but this pain is so intense and so worse.

But first … tomorrow is a bizzy day. In the morning I have to take a bus to Mechelen for an appointement, after that I have to be at work at 11.30am to start a (I GUESS) a very bizzy day at work. Guess most people will be hunting for Christmas presents, when the kids are out of school.

In the evening I have to go to my dentist again. Glad that toothache is better and my tooth can be filled again !

So I’m sorry if I’m not able to write a blogmas tomorrow 😦 

On Thursday I have another workday, a full one. On Friday I have a day off, but I guess I’m going to spend it in bed watching ‘Fuller House’.

See you all later, hope with less pain !

Love Lucy xx

Blogmas 17 … lazy (painfull) Sunday

December 17 … week week till the Holidays

So today I had a day off. Yesterday was a bizzy workday but a great one. Like every story I have to post, I have some terrible pains everywhere.

If I work a day, I need a day to be at home and do nothing. Just laying in bed, and sleep.

But today my family had some more plans for today, so it was a very hard day.

Now it’s 8pm and the pain is just killing me, even while I’m writing this blog. My hands are thick and I have a terrible headache.

My plan for this evening was to write a blogmas about my favorite songs, but that I just can’t do at the moment. This autism girl wanted to write a blog tonight so that’s what I’m doing right now.

Tomorrow I have a day full of plans so I hope it will be okay and feeling better tomorrow.

So pain, what kind of pain do I have?

  • A lot of pain everywhere in my body and some tender points
  • Spots where I have more pain and more pressure
  • Fatigue (all day long)
  • problems with sleeping
  • a lot of concentration problems (not knowing what day it is, what I have to do or what people told me like 5 minutes ago in the store)
  • anxiety and feeling a bit of my “old” depression symptoms feeling coming back
  • every moring I have stiffness
  • numbless and tingling everywhere like my hands, knees, legs, arms
  • migraines, headache one is just over and I have another one
  • problems with my stomach
  • painfull eyes
  • and bigger neck lymph

Dr. Google?

Like many others, there’s always dr. Google. Not a good idea, because I’m freaking out when I’m searching on those symptoms.

I went to my doctor for a test to see if I had rheumatism or not. The results were negative. So he gave me some more vitamins, magnesium and iron tablets. I had to take them for a month or 2 months.

But now after a month I don’t feel any differents. It’s so sad that I have to say that the problems are getting worse.

Fibromyalgia

After searching on those symtoms I get so many results from the internet that are saying ‘fibromyalgia’.

As I’m a girl with autism I have like always tensions of all the stress I have all day in like every situation (working, going grocery shopping, taking a buss, going to the city). All that tension could make things worse.

The last thing I want is a long time spending in the hospital for doing some more test or spending days there to found out what’s wrong. Not knowing what will happen with me that day, always freaks me out.

So now I don’t know what to do. I really love my job and I just don’t want to give it up or stay at home because of all the pain. I only have 3 months left there at my work place and I want to spend those months at work and not in a hospital.

Christmas and Holidays?

This year I don’t have plans for Christmas eve, or the year ending. Besides that I have to work December 30 and 31. Guess I will be in bed on December 31 at 9pm like always 😦
While all my facebook is having a party I’ll be at home, in bed watching a movie or just sleeping.

On Christmas day I a family diner in the afternoon. But if I have so much pain and if I’m so fatigue like today. I guess I’ll be just in my room and watching a movie on Netflix. I don’t have the best family for parties. The make always so much noise and they always give me so much headache.

For you?

So I hope you all have amizing holidays this year and great parties !

One day …

One day, I hope that I can life a happy life without this much pain. That I found a really good doctor that give me some advice on how to life with this pain.

Love, Lucy xx

Blogmas 15 … Ugly Christmas Sweater day

Ugly Christmas Sweater day

 

# 1 … Divided by H&M

So today was THE ‘ugly Christmas Sweater day’ ! From this day, for me it’s okay to wear a Christmas jumper outside the house.

Over the past years I have bought a few Christmas jumpers, but never really liked them to be comfy wearing them outside.

This year was so different ! I bought 2 Christmas jumpers I just really like. Yesterday I bought the one I really love (or just adore).

Since a few weeks I love this jumper, from the day it came online. It’s from Divided by H&M.

hmgoepprod (1)

After buying this yesterday I even more in love with it.

It’s a black jumper (not a sweatshirt), it has a cat on it, has the christmas lights (which look like the Osborn lights from Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World).

So today I wore this beauty to work, and I really felt amazing ! I was so cute, and it has the Christmas vibe all over it.

Now it’s in the wash, but can’t wait to wear this again next week to work !

It’s going to be sad when Christmas is over and I can’t wear it for the rest of the 350 days to come 😥

# 2 … Only by Bestseller Group

Earlier I bought an other Christmas sweater. I bought this the day the sales assistant were putting it in the Store ‘ Modemakers’.

It’s from the Bestseller Group brand ONLY, one of my favorite brands! Actually I love every brand from the Bestseller Group, like Vero Moda, Jacqueline De Yong, Vila Clothes and Pieces.

This knitted jumper is from Only

15140577_Black_584481_001_ProductLarge

This one is on my list to wear tomorrow with a black skinny jeans or maybe my black leather skirt of shorts.

Hohoho Merry Christmas !

Rudolf the BLACK nose reindeer ! 

And YOU?

How many Christmas sweaters do you have? Did you wear one today on ‘ugly Christmas sweater day’?

Oh, what did you think of my 2 choices for jumpers this year (the cat from H&M and the reindeer from Only)?

 

Thanks for reading another #blogmas tonight!

Love Lucy xx

Blogmas 13 … What I’ll be watching on Netflix

Sorry, so sorry that I couldn’t write my yesterday’s blog ! It was a long workday (sold a lot of shoes) and I had (still have) a very terrible toothache. 

What will I watch the upcoming week?

Most of you bloggers are having a top 10 with favorite things to watch this christmas season.  I also have a top list of things I have to watch this Holiday season.

I’m not that girl that goes to a theater to watch the big movies that are coming out ! So here no Star Wars movie on my list, or others. I really like movies I can watch at home, in a quiet place where I don’t have to be stress with all the sounds of drinks and popcorn of others.

Ready? Let’s found out which one.

# 1 A Wish for Christmas

This movie I really want to see again, really loved it last year. I’m a big fan of Lacey Chabert.

# 2 A Christmas Prince

6bdc8369ef2070e7f56543b039bc464870d36c3e

For this one, I’m not that enthousiast. I just want to see it because everybody is talking about it. I’ll let you know how it was.

# 3 Every Christmas has a story

I started watching this movie a few weeks ago, but I fell asleep. So this is one thing on my list to see, and see the whole movie in one time.

In Full House and now Fuller House I always liked Lori, since I was a kid and I saw here the first time. So this movie I can’t miss this season.

Every-Christmas-Has-A-Story-DVD-f

# 4 Olaf’s Frozen Adventure … oh and Frozen

Now with all the commotion about the part of Frozen before the movie Coco, I really want to see this Frozen Adventure. Sorry, but I just can’t spend 9 EUR for a movie where I get nuts of all the noices and I only want to see the Frozen part. Coco is something I want to watch for the first time at home.

Next Saturday the 23th, a television station here in Belgium will show Olaf’s Frozen Adventure on TV. So I can record this and watch it when I’m alone or just maybe watch it when it’s showing that evening.

After the Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, this tv station will also show the original Frozen movie. I also recorded this one, for when I’m alone here, my other family will not be happy when Frozen will play.

Olaf_Frozen_Adventure_Arabic

And the ONE thing I REALLY REALLY want to see the upcoming week is

Fuller House

The last thing I want to watch the upcoming week, well Friday the 22 December!  I have a day off, so I hope it’s on Netflix in the morning here so I can watch this all day long in PJ’s. Would be nice to relax, drink hot cocoa and eat some waffles and watch Fuller House.

I watch every episode when I was a kid, was a hugh fan of Lori (Becky). Even when I couldn’t speak English, I could say some quotes from the episode by heart. Very strange, but that’s maybe my autistic part.

Unfortually I lost that. When I see a movie or follow a show on Netflix I always forget it, or I forget the important stuff so I have to re-watch a half episode before playing the next one.

But for now … I can’t wait to watch FULLER HOUSE !!!!

Blogmas 11 … pain pain pain & more pain | Oh and a healthy recipe for oatmeal waffles

” I’m 32 years old but most of the time I feel like 82! “

Okay, this was the quote for today ! Such a painfull day, so much pain again!

Goodmorning!

I woke up this morning at 8am, but I couldn’t get out of my bed. It needed more time, like always, but today I needed 1h15 to get out of bed. It was 9.15am, till I got up and was able to get some breakfast.

All day I can eat this healthy food I want, but for breakfast I always need sugary things.

My plan after breakfast … I went back to bed for another hour. I had no idea that I could do stuff today.

Snow, snow and more snow

Yesterday the snow melted all, and this morning it was snowing hard again. In just a few hours it was all white and dangerous outside.

Around 13pm I went outside to take a walk in the snow and take some pictures of the snow around us. It’s so magic all the snow outside on the trees.

Once outside it was like the cold wind has frozen my muscle pains. Once inside again I needed to go to bed.

Here are some pictures of the magical snow…

Sorry … it was a NO make-up monday today (and I had so much pain I could not hold my brushes this morning 😥 ) 

Cat paws in the snow

IMG_5765

Some paws I’ve seen today are so strange, like always cat’s don’t have a good direction to follow. Left, right, oh no left again.
I wish I had pictures of my cats in the first snow but they don’t like snow ! 

Old Timberland boots are the best EVER !

Time to bake some … waffles

Oh yess, I’m belgian so waffles are the best here! I really like to bake healthy waffles I can eat for lunch or breakfast. Today I ate some for diner with fresh fruit, peanutbutter and maple sirup.

A few days ago I promised a friend of mine I would sell here my Mickey waffles machine, which was laying here unused for more than 4 years now. And I had to try it to make sure it still works after that long time doing nothing! It still worked !

So time for some oatmeal waffles, the best ever ! Off course I also made some heart shape waffles beside the Mickey ones.

Here are the ingredients I used

IMG_5835.JPG

And yess, that’s all you need for a great recipe for healthy waffles. Okay not vegan because of the eggs, but you can replace them.

You need :

  • 200 grams of oatmeal
  • 300 ml of rice milk
  • 2 eggs (not the biggest ones)
  • 1 tbsp of backing powder
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1 theespoon of vanille extract
  • coconut oil for the waffles machine

How to make them ?

  • blend the oatmeal very fine like flour
  • put the egg white in a separate bowl and mix it
  • take another bowl to put all the ingredients in (oatmeal flour, rice milk, honey, vanilla, egg yellow and baking powder)
  • Mix all those ingredients together
  • Add the egg white with a spoon
  • put on the waffle machine while the dough is resting a few minutes
  • put on the coconut oil on the machine and than the dough
  • bake the waffles till golden brown and ready

Enjoy !

Moment after the baking … PAIN

Oh yess, after I baked the waffles, all of them, it was over and out for today. I couldn’t move my arm after eating some waffles.

So here I am now, in bed trying to make todays blogpost and finish it.

It’s so unfair that I’m having all that pain and my doctor is just saying ” it’s not that bad, get over it, and wait another month”.

Last month I had to take medication for 2 months, but after taking them a month it all is getting so much worst 😥

I really feel like an 82 year old women, and not the 32 year old that should have energy to rase kids, have a fulltime job and still is going out !

I have a beautiful life now and feeling so happy (after some really bad years) but all that pain is so hard to deal with rightnow. I want to do stuff, I want to go to the Christmas marktet or just prepare a meal after a workday. But NO, after a workday I’m just dead, so dead !

Tomorrow I have to work a full day, preparing the store for the Christmas and year end sales that are coming end of this week. So tomorrow night, I will have so much pain again. Not normal, but my doctor says it’s not that bad enough grrr.

I’m ending my blog here, going to see if there’s a Chrismas movie on Netflix that I haven’t seen before.

Till tomorrow !

Love Lucy xx

Blogmas 9 … time to Party! Outfit & feelings

Yesterday was a pretty bizzy day, and was back home well it was today. This is how my day was and what I wore that evening.

Workday

My day started with a workday at 9.15 am till 5pm. Not a long workday like every other Saturday but that was good.

It was a bizzy day at work, lot of people in store to buy winterboots. Oh yess, that’s how Belgian people think. We not buying wintershoes untill it’s cold and snowy. I guess people here are guessing that winter starts when the sales starts and that is good to send your kids to school in the snow with summer sneakers.

I always plan, plan and plan and I’m buying shoes for fall in summer time when they first arrive in store. I’m always prepared for colder weather, guess any weather 😉

The first shoes of the summer collection came last week and yesterday I also have put the last pairs of them in the store. There are some really pretty shoes for kids out now, which I shared on my facebookaccount to my friends.

It’s 5 PM

Most people were surprised that the store was going to close at 5 PM insteat of after 6PM. But hey, that one day we could go to a party together.

Between 5pm and 5.45pm I went to the store next to us to buy a black shirt. I wasn’t sure my black tee from Zara was good enough after hearing wat others were going to wear. I’m always so insecure about my own clothes :/

After that it was time to prepare for the party, to do my hair and put on my clothes. It was kind of strange to do your make-up in a shoestore.

Once I put on my whole outfit I felt so proud, even with that Zara shirt.

Time to party !

We arrived at the party at 8.30pm. It was soooo pretty inside (sorry I have no pictures to show). The time was ‘magic’ but it felt like a magical woods. I really love it.

When we arrived it was good, not a lot of people, not a lot of lights etc. When the party started and everybody showed up it was insane for this autism girl. So much noice, so much different lightning. Like an instant I had a massive headache. It was so shocking all that pain in less that half an hour 😮

The food was great, but I couldn’t eat much because of the pain.

After eating it was time to dance, so I did. A BIG surprise for me, that I (yeah MEEEE) danced for a few hours ! I never did that. So I danced with a lot of pain.

I came home around 1.30 am this morning. Years ago that I came home that late, normally I go to bed at 10pm.

OUTFIT

So yesterday was the day I could were my beloved Pink tutu to the party. Insteat of wearing this tutu with a pair of high heels, I wore it with my pair of dr. Martens to make it more ‘rockchic’. I really loved the combination.

Oh I wish I could wear my tutu everyday from now. I missed it wearing it today. ‘So where’s the next party!’

Last evening I FORGOT (oh yeah forgot) to take pictures of my outfit before the party, because I was bizzy talking to colleagues.

So this evening I took some pictures to give you all an idea of how my outfit was that evening.

I felt so great wearing this, so proud, so confident, so happy, so meeeee.

Are you ready to see them ?

My dr.Martens MONO black boots with silver glitter socks. Both are coming from Schoenen Torfs here in Belgium.

IMG_5681.JPG

My midi long pink tutu (from The Tutu Shop, a  online shop for tutus here in Belgium) with my black basic shirt from Zara

My total outfit with my faux leather jacket from Vila by Zeb Belgium

Some more details… The little handbag is from Kisses of pearl, from Schoenen Torfs. The cat ears are from H&M

Other things

The evening I wore some earings from Pieces, like an old silver, the ones I always wear.

For make-up I wore…

  • foundation 010 by Lidl
  • powder by Maybelline
  • red lipstick by Clinique, my last berry pop one
  • mascara by Benefit
  • eye shadow the ones I bought on friday from Catrice
  • setting powder was by Maybelline

Like always I don’t do contouring or use blush, because that makes me look older. I really want to look young as I am and how I dress with that.

 

So I hope you loved reading this #blogmas part of me preparing for the party I was so looking forward to. I felt like ages. Now that the party is over, I have the feeling that I lost my christmas feeling. I feel like the season is already over. So strange. Maybe it’s because this was something I really wanted, and I could be me all the time yesterday. 

Now I have to found my inner Christmas spirit again.

Love Lucy xx

Blogmas 8 … Heidi Klum collection & grocery shopping at Lidl

Wow, it’s already December 8th 😮 I just can’t believe that tomorrow is our party at work!

Grocery shopping

Today I had another day of, so the time to do some grocery shopping at Lidl. Since we have a brand new store here in Boortmeerbeek, I really love to go there for grocery shopping. For me it’s now the perfect ‘auti-friendly’ store !

There was nothing special on my grocery list, besides some bread with nuts, spinach, bananas, peanutbutter. Most of the other things I normally eat for lunch and diner I already had bought earlier this week. I just needed some more fresh things for the weekend.

Heidi Klum collection @Lidl

Since this week you can shop the new collection of Heidi Klum at Lidl, in store and online. I saw some nice things online but I wanted to see what there was in store.

As I new there was another party collection coming, I saved some money to buy me something of this collection.

Online I saw I very nice mini skirt and a nice blue dress. Both were for sale in the store, and some of the clothes were out of their packaging. So good to check for the sizes.

Wel I was in shock how small the sizes were! I’ve took a mini skirt in the color pink I wanted and it looked great. Till the moment I saw the size, I had a size 42 in my hands and I looked like the normal size I would take in my normal shop in a size S.

So I didn’t take that skirt because the sizes didn’t felt good.

In the box next to the skirt I found the blue dress. But it was another no. The color was perfect but agian it looked so small. There was a size 44 (L) open and it looked again like my normal size 36-38 😮

I couldn’t take those clothes realizing I had to take them back to the store when they are not good from size.

Other things I liked from this collection but weren’t in my budget (I made the choice to buy the skirt and dress at home) were the scarf and a black sweater.

There was only one scarf left, and just the one with the dots I liked so I bought that one.

This one I can wear with my uniform I have to wear on Saturdays at work. This one was 9,99 EUR.

Heidi Klum collection Scarf

In the same box as the scarf I found the black sweatshirt with the zippers. This I bought in my normal size 36-38 and it look good from sizing, not toooo smal as the party collection.

This sweater/hoodie was only 14,99 EUR and I’m going to wear this a lot. You never can do a thing wrong with a good black hoodie ❤

My afternoon

As I had a day of today, and it was cold and snowy outside, I spent the afternoon just at home watching others vlogmas on Youtube.

Together with a hot chocolate milk (powder from Lidl, Blogmas 1) and a cookie

 

Evening

This evening I took the time to DIY color my hair again. As always I used the color from the brand Syoss. My hair stays healthier and looks so much better than when I go to a hairdresser.

IMG_5582This time I bought number 7-10 a lighter version of the color I always take. It’s now dry again and it looks so good again.

My hair is ready for the party tomorrow!

Tomorrow

Later this evening I’m going to bed early. Idd, early to bed on a Friday evening while everybody is going out. I’m going out tomorrow evening after a long day at work.

Tomorrow I have to work from 9.15 am till 18.30 pm and after that we leave for our party with all the colleagues from Flanders. My first party with all the people I love.
I hope I will be awake till 3am on Sunday. It’s going to be hard because as an autistic girl I never go out at night.

Tomorrow Tomorrow Tomorrow I love you Tomorrow ! Yess, tomorrow  I can wear my pink tutu with my new dr. Martens and I can share you all the style for this party.
