I wish the person that is reading this nothing but the best and may all your wishes come to reality. That all the good karma you put out into this world finds its way right back to you, be it in one day or one month. Positivity!
2016 has flown by so fast and so much has happened in my life over the year. There has been many high points and very low points in my 2016. At the beginning of the year I found out someone in my family had cancer which honestly hit me really hard and had me feel really sad about the whole situation. (Thankfully they are doing much better now) Then I got my very 1st fully OWN apartment (I am renting not bought), furnished and did everything with my own money. (INDEPENDENT WOMAN) I must say I am super proud of myself for that. I handed in my thesis and found out I failed it on the 1st try. (Was super down again about that) After I found out my Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle were coming to visit me in the Netherlands. (SUPER HAPPY moment) Redoing my thesis and then PASSING! (Proud moment) Then officially graduating from my bachelor study! (Phewwww) Those were the biggest/most highlighted moments from my 2016.
New Year….New Goals?
Of course! Ever year I make goals and keep them for myself. I don’t really share them with people because I feel like not everyone you share your goals with will support you. So to be safe just keep them to yourself and push to achieve them. I have my list of goals and hopefully by the end of 2017 I can mark off a few that I achieved. 🙂
One thing that I have noticed about myself is that I don’t celebrate the small or big moments enough. This year I will be working on celebrating every moment and actually inhaling all that is happening. Taking the time to process the happening. Along with that I want to continue to work on myself mentally. Developing more personally on a level and loving me MORE!
For my blogging and vlogging life I want to put myself on a schedule of a blog post every Wednesday and video every Sunday. I hope that this is something I can stick with because sometimes I allow other things to come in place of doing the things I have a passion for.
There is so much in life to be grateful for and I just hope that in 2017 I can practice what I preach. Giving GOOD VIBES ONLY!
On Sunday I attended the ROOTS PR – Press Event for Bloggers, Vloggers and Influencers. This was an event that was held at a warm venue in Amsterdam and in attendance was some of the best coloured Blogger, Vloggers and Influencers in the Netherlands. It was a great experience getting to meet some of beautiful people I have been following and never met in person some of them include the following J’adoreMyCurls, This Girl’s Black Book and Black Loves Gold.
During this event 3 workshops were held; ‘How to earn money with your Blog’ followed by ‘From Blog to Vlog’ and then ‘SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)’ . Each of the workshops was conducted by experts in the area and they shared a lot of valuable information. I made sure and took notes and marked down all important information shared.
One of the main points that I took from these workshops and the event itself is that it is important to stand strong in what I share on my blog and in vlogs. It was also shared that networking and connecting with likeminded Bloggers and Vlogger. And that it is not about me wanting to be found but more about the fact of finding the target group. Overall I must say that the event was a success and I am looking forward to what is to come in the near. And then not forgetting the goodie bag we received at the end of the event… It was great! SOoOoOo many different hair, skin care and beauty products. This was one of the best goodie bags I have received at any event and will be doing reviews on the products I received.
Below I have added some images that I took during the day!

I think it is about time that I give my blog & channel a schedule!
My plan is to make blog post every Friday and upload a new YT video every Sunday. That should be do-able, right?! If there are any other special event I will be sharing them on Wednesday. That means weekly every Wednesday, Friday & Sunday you find a new post or video from me!
