Another challenge Day 3 #BEDM

Today I accepted a new challenge. A friend of mine posted an album on facebook with the text "30 day chalenge of wearing dresses and skirts."
I commented ; ‘Sounds cool’ and before I knew it, she challenged me to do the same.
And I decided to accept. I don’t have a lot of dresses and skirts but I’m going to give it a try anyway.
I used to love wearing dresses / skirts to church. Nice long ones. But I don’t have a lot of those anymore.
And today when I looked through my wardrobe, deciding what to wear, I realized that a lot of dresses / skirts actually needed to be washed so the best I could do was to wear a short dress with a legging. It's not my favourite way to wear a skirt or dress but I sometimes do.
So after taking a shower and co-washing my hair, that is what I put on.

It is the same dress that I had on last Summer when the girls and I were in Romania. Only then I was a few kilograms lighter.

I realized that accepting this challenge also meant, that I would have to really try and do my best more with my hair and make -up. A lot of days, I leave the house without looking in the mirror, just grabbing a top and a pair of pants to put on. Now since part of this challenge is to take a picture of you in the outfit and I would like to look a little nice on the pictures, that is not going to do anymore.
It actually felt good to do and I guess it was time that I started to make more effort to look representable on a daily basis. So I am really happy with this challenge.

Did you recently accept some kind of challenge ? (other than BEDM) What do you think about the 30 day dress/ skirt challenge ?

Love and blessings,

The skirt/dress challenge would truly be a challenge for me to but it's good to switch things up every now and then I suppose!

Just dropping by from BEDM.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.
I still have a s…

Nevaehs Summer Bucket list

Unfortunately, it seems that this year the Autumn weather has started earlier than last year. And so I finally wanted to write a blog post to share Nevaehs Summer Bucket list with you.
This Summer, we mostly stayed in the Netherlands. We only went to Germany to visit Moviepark Germany for two days. At the beginning of the break, the girls entertained themselves by playing games and watching youtube video’s on their tablets and laptop. This bothered me a bit, so one evening I called them all together to sit down and told them to make a bucketlist for the Summer. The first one to finish was allowed to have the last bit of ice cream. Nevaeh can already write a little bit but I told her that she could draw instead. So she made a bucketlist with 10 items on it. The actual bucket list got lost somewhere but we memorized what was on it and I’m glad to say that she has been able to do all the items on it.
So here is Nevaehs Summer Bucket List.
