Let us try again!
A long time has passed, I tried to blog and I tried not to blog. I was in a rut and a bad place. Without explaining to much I was in a dark place where I deemed myself worthless. So I want to try and get back into blogging, because I adore taking pictures. Perhaps I am not the most pretty blogger and not the best but I do enjoy it very much. There will be a small change on my blog. I want to try to get more organized with a schedule. On certain days it can change but I want to keep a pattern with different categories. DennaMichelle is a personal blog with whatever floats my boat, now I want to blog about certain categories and they can be:
- Beauty / Fashion
Reviews, latest news, latest outfits, hauls and more. It can be make-up, clothing or jewelry. Big jewelry fan here. All beauty and fashion orientated. I think this explains itself. It is a part that I always highlighted on DennaMichelle and I still want to include.
- Lifestyle / Nerdy
Let’s talk about movies, tv-shows, comics, gadgets and everything in between. I am a big nerd or however you want to call it and I want to include that in my blog.
I am trying to loose weight and live a healthy life. I already lost 15 kilo’s and I want to keep going to grow stronger and healthier. So once a week I will give you the latest fit news, recipe, tips and tricks or work-outs. All healthy and fitspo approved.
- Picture Diary
From time to time I want to share the pictures that I make. I can not promise that this will be a weekly thing, especially starting out I am pretty sure I will fail. But I will try and share my pretty pictures!
And my schedule will be.
- Sunday : Picture Diary
- Monday : Beauty / Fashion
- Tuesday : Lifestyle / Nerd
- Wednesday : Fit
- Thursday : Beauty / Fashion
- Friday : Lifestyle / Nerdy
- Saturday : Not specified
So let us see how this works!
Brush brush brush
I almost wear foundation daily, I found my way to apply it and I have two great tools for it. I still hear from a lot of people that they apply using their fingers and no problems with that. But I found out that a sponge or oval brush works so much better to get a smooth face. I can get a soft thin layer and I get get a nice full face without it being cakey. And I think that good tools really help with application. I will be giving you links to my cheap tools that make applying foundation so fast and easy.
Cluse La Bohème
Cluse watches are minimalistic and quality. For people who who find beauty in simplicity. Simple is not about being plain when it comes to Cluse watches. It is about being grounded, sophisticated and true to oneself. The La Bohème Cluse watch that combines rose gold and grey. A stunning white watch face with rose hands that make it easy to show the time. A beautiful piece suited for young girls but also adults. One might say this is a piece that thrives in every wardrobe. Casual with jeans and a shirt or when you are going fancy dressed. Dressed up with a lot of bracelet or just minimalistic and simple like intended by Cluse. I am a girl who adores the grey with it, currently really wearing a lot of grey while normally I go for black. But Cluso has so many color options that you need to check it out on their site.
Today a little mental health article with a bit of fun. And with fun I mean my embarrassing pictures. So the above pictures…this little blogger is currently debating if it is good to share online but you know what? I love this little collage because it shows me in different parts of my life. The cute little girl that I used to be, the between where I was in such a bad place and the current situation. Happiness never came easy for me and I blamed myself for it. I was and perhaps still am one of those people who think that some people do not deserve to be happy. Funny how you can see when I was happy and when I was not. And I do not think it is because I got my shit together and got ‘prettier’ because I still see myself the same size in all those ‘grown-up’ pictures but it is because I am smiling. Sparkle in the eyes and all that cliche stuff.
We often forget where we came from. What was our past? Where are we now? We only see the present and the things we do not like. To be a cliche blogger, we see the things ahead of us and not what we already passed. I passed so many things from eating disorder to self loathing. But when I look at my recent pictures I still see my crooked nose and hamster cheeks. What I do not see is the so much stronger woman that I have become. I used to eat only healthy small portions and now I can go out and eat with friends without thinking they see me as a pig. I can wear clothing that I love without thinking this fatgirl needs to hide everything. Still I am my own worst critic, but a friend told me “Do you put down other people? Why do you put down yourself?”. So I am currently trying to be my own best friend, sometimes we find…but that is okay.
I used to be a girl with a large gap between my teeth and bangs that made me adorable. I used to be a girl not happy in her own skin. I used to be a girl who was overweight and could not help it. I used to be so unhappy. And now I have to accept that I am all those girls, but the grown up version that knows how to be unhappy and now is going to be happy.
What I want to share today is that you need to go out and be happy.
Setting the bar (earrings)
Bar earrings are such a lovely statement without being to much. I personally adore a good ear stack but these bars will also look great on their own. I keep seeing this trendy earring more and more. But an amazing ear-stack does not have to be expensive because eBay has nice cheap earrings. I found this lovely seller that has two sizes of bar earrings in both silver and gold. The bar earrings are $1.59 with free shipping and I think that that is a good price. I love the tiny gold ones the best especially layered with some long earrings and some stud dots like these here. But I do think that the long silver ones look amazing with silver hoops. There are many variations and options making this a perfect thing to have in your jewelry collection.
Me personally? I bought a long golden bar and a short one also in gold. And as I am writing this I also ordered a small silver one. I can not wait to stack this up and see how they look. I also bought them from the above links. So if you want to see them being worn…keep an eye out on my instagram @DennaMichelle. I will be trying out combinations with these bar earrings and if I find something that I love, I will post pictures!
For normal skin with organic Argan Oil
Today I have a sample review for you. A sample review means that I do not have the full size product that I tested for a few weeks but I have a small sample size that I tested. It is still the same product but I do not have the big size. This sample I got from Douglas when I ordered a lipstick. It is from their own naturals line. The naturals line has 3 day cremes and I tested the one for normal skin. The products all have organic Argan Oil
Lovely batman items
Starting today I want to have a weekly themed post. I adore superhero’s and all thinks nerdy and I know that a ‘traditional’ beautyblog or fitblog does not have this. My blog is going into a new direction, just lifestyle with what I adore. Do you love nerdy stuff check out my blog weekly, do you love fitness check out the other day. In my sidebar you can see what I will be uploading on certain days. Today we have Batman, a superhero I think most people know. On other days we will have other hero’s and ‘nerdy’ related articles.
He is the superhero with the best logo and to be honest I am just a big fan of him. My favorite male superhero! So I found some lovely things from shirts to earrings and I wanted to share! I am a big fan of logo t-shirts, I also have a batman logo shirt but not as pretty as the one featured here. You can check mine on my personal Instagram or my Fit instagram. They are from different sites and have different pricing. This lovely superhero was ‘invented’ in 1939 and the yellow and black is iconic. After batman v superman I decided that I needed more batman in my life. So I ordered some earrings and some shirts. What I ordered I will be reviewing soon, but at the moment I a little list for you all if you want to buy the above gear!

Olaplex saved my hair
Olaplex, people talk about it but there are enough people who no have idea what Olaplex is. When people touch my hair and tell me that they love it they always look strange when I tell them I used Olaplex. That inspired me to write a nice little article about Olaplex, I let my hairdresser do it to my hair twice and I also finished one bottle of home treatment so I do know a bit about it. Also my hairdresser took some amazing pictures that I will be including in this article. You also should check her out on her instagram Dhanasalon. But lets talk a bit about what Olaplex did for my really damaged hair.
