I’m becoming a doctor

Light feeling in my head, not only butterflies but the whole zoo in my stomach and a body full of adrenaline.

That is more or less how I felt this morning when I went on the internet and found out I passed the entry exam for medicine. I’m not writing this post to brag about it, so I won’t make it long, but I’ve been working so hard for this for so long already and I just can’t describe the happiness that’s flowing through my body right now.

I wanted to share my happiness with you guys and say that you must never give up on a dream. I didn’t pass the exam last year, but I wanted it so bad and worked for it, every single day and now I finally got the result!

Chase after your dreams and don’t let them run away from you that easily, because one day, you will catch up with them and I promise, it’ll be one of the best days of your life and all the efforts will be more than worth it.

Love, Beth

Review Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1

WP_20140830_002

I haven’t done beauty reviews before, but since I consider myself more as an allround blogger, I thought I’d give it a try!

I’ve been using this product everyday for two weeks now and I have to say, I absolutely love it. According to the commercials, you can use it to wash and scrub your face, but also as a mask. Personally, I use it as a scrub and mask only, because I think it is less effective if you just put it softly on your face and rinse it off immediately after. But maybe that’s just me 🙂

The cream is rather thick and it smells really fresh! I like the texture of it and it doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin, which is a huge advantage for me because my skin is pretty sensitive. After you’ve washed it off, your skin doesn’t only smell good, but it feels so soft and fresh, you can compare it with that fresh feeling you have in your mouth, after eating a strong mint.

It is very nice to use as a scrub. Many scrubs give you the feeling they’re scrubbing the upper layer from your skin off, but this one is rather subtle and pleasant. My favorite is to use it as a mask. You can really see and feel the difference after you’ve washed it off, it leaves your skin looking very healthy

.WP_20140830_004 I only used the tiniest bit for this, so you can go on for quite a while with this tube.

So if you’re struggling with a sensitive skin and you’re looking for some daily cleanser, I would really recommend this one. According to me, it doesn’t have any downsides 🙂

You won’t regret it!

Memory boxes

Snapchat-20140823073709.

For quite a few years now, my mom kept these memory boxes for my sister and me. Birthday cards and little things that we probably would’ve thrown away, are now carefully (or rather untidy but who cares) stored in boxes and put away underneath our beds.

So yesterday as a study break, I decided to take a look inside my memory boxes. Oh the memories that came back… It might sound stupid or cheesy, but every single time I look in them, I’m touched once again by all the memories, floating back into my brain. It goes from pictures of my class in first grade, to love letters from former boyfriends when I was fourteen or fifteen years old, to pictures from summercamps I did more than 5 years ago.

I think it is strange how things that happened in the past, can have this huge influence on our actions and the decisions we make today. When you think of it, it’s funny because most of these thoughts happen in your subconscious. If clowns scared the hell out of you when you were a kid, you probably won’t be hasty with taking your own kids to the circus. It’s like former experiences guide us through live, without us even knowing. It’s kind of obvious, but when you look further, you’ll see these phenomenon also in your all day thingies. Maybe your mum bought you a hideous green sweater once but you had to wear it, so now you don’t like the color green that much.

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”, said by Karl Lagerfeld.

Enjoy life people, make memories and make sure you’ll look back at them with a smile on your face.

Love, Beth.

 

Goodnight Quote

large

 

Imagine a perfect world, without even a single flaw. Boring, right? The imperfection of things is what makes life beautiful, we can’t live without them. Another quote I heard someone say is ‘I saw that you were perfect, and I loved you. Then I saw you weren’t perfect at all, and I loved you even more’. Our flaws and mistakes make us human, they make us unique. Because how can one enjoy a happy feeling, if he never felt unhappy?

Don’t try to be perfect, because you can’t. Be yourself and it’ll be the closest to perfection you will ever be.

Love, Beth

Totally cliché lovestory

‘I love you, to the moon and back.’

16 years old and being totally clueless of what the summer would bring. That sounds a whole lot like Lisa, now already three years ago.

That summer, the summer of 2011, had so many things she could look out for and since she didn’t had a boyfriend, she could do whatever she wanted. She was going to Italy with her parents and sister and she was going to see her friends a lot. But her absolute favorite, was going on summercamp with her best friend Emilia. They always had so much fun together and they knew each other since the age of 5.

Finally the day of department had arrived. She had packed all of her stuff – like always way too much, but don’t all girls have that issue? – and was totally ready to leave. She said goodbye to her mom and dad and hopped on the bus. Emilia and Lisa were immediately in the happy holiday-mood, they hadn’t seen each other for too long so there surely was enough to talk about.

Lisa told me, she still remembers the first time she saw him. Actually it was due Emilia, she spotted a friend of him, ‘oh look at that boy with the red sweater, he’s cute!’, but Lisa didn’t see the boy with the red sweater, it was his friend who pulled her attention. It didn’t take long before they got to know each other, his name was Nick and he was also 16 years old. After a few days of laughing and talking and subtle eye contacts, she fell in love with him.

Of course the number one question was is he loved her back, she just couldn’t figure it out, while it was actually quite obvious if you look back at it now. They became close and when they went to the beach the last day of camp, they first kissed. They kissed in the sea and he whispered in her ear, ‘I love you, to the moon and back’ and she was the happiest girl alive.

Well, I think you already figured out there is no Lisa and Nick, it’s about my boyfriend and me, who are now – three years later – still together and really in love. I know, it’s a cliché teenage lovestory, but I did warn you in the title, didn’t I? And doesn’t everybody like some cliché, way too predictable lovestory now and then, whereby they don’t have to think too much? At least I do, especially when it’s my own.

See you soon sleepyheads,

Love, Beth

Robin Williams

I couldn’t believe the news when I woke up this morning. ‘Robin Williams died at the age of 63’. At first I thought it was another joke or something, you know these things happen sometimes when some smartass sends the information into the world, just to scare or shock people. I looked further and the news got confirmed, he really is gone.

This man made me laugh so many times, he gave so many people a warm, happy feeling. When you read the news, it appears he wasn’t happy at all, he struggled with himself and with life and that makes me sad.

I wanted to pay my respect here, the man was loved by an uncountable amount of people and he will be missed. So goodbye mister Robin Williams, I truly hope you found your peace.

Beth
