New year, new attempt at blogging xD

Hi everyone,

First of all, Blessed new year, even though we’re 2 weeks in the new year already xD

So an update is in order. The last post from me was on august 20th and the day after life took a turn. I got a phone call for a job interview and at the end of that interview they offered me a job. I started on the last day of august. September was a crazy month, because I was working 2 jobs and being a mom. The last day of my old job was in the beginning of october. I’m still trying to adjust te ever changing work schedules, my house is a giant mess, but there will come an end to all the crazy. And soon I will have some more free time, once my son goes to daycare in february for 2 days a week. So I’m pretty overwhelmed by all the things lately, but I’m working hard on finding my focus again, although I’ve been more creative lately which doesn’t help in getting my house in order xD

So for now I’m leaving you with this song from my idol:

You remind me of the babe (what babe?)
The babe with the power (what power?)
The power of voodoo (who do?)
You do (do what?)
Remind me of the babe

Blessed be,

Noita

Bad memory

Hi everyone,

I keep forgetting to post things. So far being a mom has me real busy, but everytime I want to sit down and work on this blog or other creative things during his nap, I keep seeing things to do around the house. For example folding laundry, if I see it laying around when my kid is taking his nap, than I have to fold it. So I’m mostly doing those little things during his nap. I’m trying to get more into a routine that gives me the nap time as time to do more things what makes me happy, but there is so much that I get frustrated about the plan and just stop trying to make a plan. So I just need to figure out a plan/routine that doesn’t frustrate me.

So for now an update on how things are going. My kid is a toddler and doing really well, but he doesn’t want to speak yet, but we know he knows a few words already. But we are not pushing him and we just understand him really well most of the time. And since he isn’t 2 yet, I’m not worried yet.

As for me, I’m not a vegan anymore. It just doesn’t seem to be working for me. I’m leaning more towards plant-based, because it doesn’t feel limiting, but I need to get there, because my eating habits went straight back to what it used to be. Oh and I celebrated my 28th birthday last weekend. It doesn’t feel different than 27 xD

I hope everyone is doing good.

Blessed be,

Noita

A little update

Hi everyone,

I keep saying sorry about not keeping up with this blog. I do really want to work on this blog. But things keep going wrong, my mental health has been on the downwards path, last week one of my grandmothers died at the age of 84, some other personal things, still trying to process everything that happened in the past 2 years and everything just keep adding up. I’m going to try to focus more on this blog and being creative, because I need to focus the energy I have from my anger and fears into something that makes me happy.

I already have some ideas that I want to do on this blog including a series about creating outfits with wat you already have and a budget series about finding outfits in stores like primark and H&M. I’m trying to go towards more low-waste and sustainability, but I also love trying to find good items in stores like that.

I recently opened up an Etsy shop, but currently closed for vacation and working on things, because I didn’t have much to put on there yet (and actually went on vacatation last month). But it’s a huge step towards my performance anxiety. 

My son is doing well, almost 1 year and 6 months old. He loves eating, going outside and play with dirt. He has a sandbox and he loves it. He starting to say some words and he really loves helping me with the laundry, vacuuming, cooking and throwing away stuff xD And he is a big help when I’m feeling down <3

So, I’m going to step it up with posting stuff again.

Blessed be,

Noita

Update

Hi everyone,

I feel like I’m making constant excuses on why I haven’t been blogging.

I’ve had this nice flow in writing and then I got sick. It started with pain in my stomach and a few days later the nausea began. The nausea reminded me of last year, I had the same nausea when I was pregnant. But I also had gallstones during my pregnancy. Turned out I had gallstones. So I went to the hospital, they tried to help, got a pancreatic inflammation instead. Got better, after 2 weeks the pain and nausea began again. Hospitalized for the second time, turned out I had a gallbladder inflammation. They operated to remove the gallbladder and the operation took longer than expected, because it was worse inflamed than they thought. Had to stay 3 days extra due to antibiotics and got better again. Now I’m building up my energie and strenght, getting back to doing household and hobby stuff., while running after a fast crawling 10 month old, who loves being naughty xD

Blessed be,

Noita
