Lovely little things: Floral skirts, Oreo cheesecake + more!
It’s worth remembering the little things and moments in life that brings us joy.
So here’s some of my recent favorites. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into my every day life, and remember to stop and appreciate the little things in your life too.
Side note before we get started: this post is not sponsored, and I haven’t been paid to mention any brand or product in this post (but even if I had, I’d still only share my honest opinion). Once in a while companies send me products to review or invite me to events, but I’ll only share them here if it’s genuinely a recent favorite of mine. For the sake of transparency, I’ll mark those things as we go along. Deal? Deal!
👗🌸 Floral skirt: After a long day of BA writing, I biked home via my usual route – and then I noticed a thrift shop with the most beautiful yellow floral dress in the window. Somehow I had never noticed it before. Unfortunately the yellow dress didn’t fit, but this red floral skirt did. Seemed perfect for my increasingly non-black wardrobe and for summer! It’s a wrap skirt, and I love wearing it.
📖 Reasons to stay alive. A book by Matt Haig. The only bad thing I can say about this book is I wish it was longer. The book is a mix between Matt’s personal story with severe depression and struggling to find reasons to stay alive combined with commentary, like the above picture, on what depression and anxiety are and feel like. How mental health and physical health are not that different (if at all), but are treated that way in society. How depression lies, makes you feel alone and worthless, but that it’s not true – and there’s a way to get better.
🥑 Avocado. Not just avocado, avocado ON SALE (I’ve spelled avocado so many times now, I hope this is the right way)
☕ Ice coffee: Doesn’t it look delicious? Unfortunately it tastes of coffee (yes this is a huge problem). So S made me ice chai tea so I don’t feel like I’m missing out.
🍰 Oreo cheesecake: OMFG. This is so freaking good. I was at Storm’s Pakhus (a street food market in Odense), celebrating S’s sister’s birthday. For dessert, I got this gorgeous slice of orea cheesecake (you know, with the oreo-filling stuff mixed into the cheese stuff). It was so good. My belly was so happy for the rest of the day, and now again just from looking at the picture and remembering.
♥ FAVORITE WATCHES
🎞 Movies with S: I’ve actually been to the movies with S twice since the last LLT. First, we saw Ready Player One – it was the 140-or-something anniversary of the Egmont Foundation, and who would say no to free tickets? It was a pretty great movie, but it doesn’t compare to the second movie, Deadpool 2 – WHICH I LOVED!
🚓 Brooklyn Nine-Nine: It’s just one of the funniest shows ever, and I’m so happy it was saved!
🎧Griefcast: I discovered this podcast by Cariad Lloyd through one of the awards it recently received. ‘A comedy podcast about death’ made me curious, and Cariad Lloyd seems so lovely, I gave it a listen. What she’s doing with this podcast, talking openly about death and grief with (funny) people, is amazing – everybody has or will experience death in a close relationship, and here’s a safe space for grief and reflection.
