Current Temptations #01


Happy Monday, lovelies! In my bit of spare time last week, I put up a new (simple) layout. The previous layout was getting quite boring and there were some errors I just couldn’t fix hehe… Anyways, what do you guys think of this one? I tried to keep it as clean as possible; not too many distractions from the actual content. As usual, if you find any errors, please send me a message ^^  Anyway, for today I wanted to share some of my current favorites (temptations). I don’t think I’ve done anything like this before, so it was about time 😀 

Book: Maze Runner Trilogy

Recommended by Olivia, I bought the maze runner series a few weeks back. The book’s about a boy named Thomas and one day he wakes up in a locked-up place. That’s all I’m going to say, because I’m afraid I’ll spoil too much. Anyway, I’m at book 4, the prequel, right now. Book 1-3 went way too fast! I couldn’t put the book away hehe.. Even though life was quite busy, I couldn’t stop reading! Whenever I started reading, I’d tell myself to stop after one chapter. However, I ended up reading about half the book (after midnight) every single time :’) [Bookworms will know what I’m talking about ♥] Book 4 isn’t going as fast as the previous three books though. I love the trilogy, but I feel like the prequel is unnecessary and doesn’t add anything to the experience of the trilogy. It kind of feels like an anti-climax to me.

Music: Photograph – Ed Sheeran

In the past, I wasn’t really up-to-date with new songs. However, nowadays, I have to travel 2 x 50 minutes by car for my work everyday. Naturally, the radio is cranked up to max (Okay, that’s quite an overstatement.. Safety first, right?! But you get my drift 😛 ) The first time I heard this song, I was really moved by it. I just love the feel, the lyrics… Oh, and the MV is so so adorable :3 Check it out ^^

Drink: Chai Tea Latte

As some of you might know, I’m a tea lover. I love trying new kinds of tea and I’ve been hooked on this instant Chai Tea Latte from Nestlé lately. It’s so good. (Rich in sugars tho’ ^^” ) I know there are probably better Chai Tea Lattes in actual tea bars, but this is a great alternative for at home 🙂 

Make-up: Kiko Velvet Mat Lipstick – 602

I fell in love with this lipstick ever since I got it from Spain. The color is perfect for just about any occasion. The color is beautiful for special occasions, but it’s not too flashy so I can wear it to work without feeling like a barbie doll. I’m not sure about the other colors, but as for this color, this lipstick doesn’t bleed and the color lasts really long. It can survive at least one meal! 😉

Exercise: Abdominal Side Bend & Glute Bridge

For my physical and mental health (and so I can eat more Cinnamon Rolls :P), I try to work out about 4 times a week and I try to switch up my exercises every now and then to keep things interesting. These two exercises have been my favorites so far. You’ll definitely feel your muscles with these two exercises! Try these and you’ll love them. Guaranteed 😀

And that’s it! My temptations at the moment ^^  I hope you enjoyed this post and leave me a comment below on your current temptations 🙂

What are your current temptations? Do we share any of the temptations I mentioned?

  1. Very clean indeed, your bakings will pop out even more now! So want a KIKO here, looks like a really pretty shade. The glute bridge seems a lot of fun, really hard though but yeah muffins to eat and not to be seen 🙂

    1. Thank you, Jasmine ^^ I hope they will pop out more 😀 Currently, there’s only one KIKO in The Netherlands. However, I heard Amsterdam Central Station is getting one too!! (still 2+ hrs away from where I live, but ok… ^^” ) You should definitely try the glute bridge. And you’re right about the muffins hehe…
