I’m trying to find my niche for my blog but also for life in general. And when you’re interested in way to many things, that’s not an easy thing to do. That’s probably why I’ve got a room stuffed with almost every thing to DIY, but no time to use or even clean it…
Another example. Now that Google Reader will stop it’s rss-feed-reading services on July 1st, I’m reevaluating the 500+ blogs I’m following on a daily basis. Blogs on blogging, cooking, beauty, fashion, home deco, lifestyle in general, photography, design in general, books and magazines, events, weddings and parties, tv, movies and music, technology, jewelry, travel. Which of all of these blogs should I copy to my new reader (Feedly b.t.w.) and which do I leave behind? (If you’re desperate that I take your blog with me to Feedly, please leave a comment…)
Same with my blog: I need a focus point, so you guys know what to expect from it and I have some sort of boundary. But I just can’t seem to figure out which it it I’d like to write about most of the time. That’s why in the next couple of weeks or perhaps even months, I will test drive some new and some old categories and some design changes. Let me know what you think of it! Any tips on finding my niche?!

Not just home deco (like these throws and the plus trend) is in black and white this spring, easter deco seems to have copied this trend. I love these, all found on Pinterest!

I don’t know about you, but I guess here in The Netherlands were there is still snow falling from the sky, we’re all desperately longing for spring! Don’t you just love to throw off those scarves, hats and gloves, wearing sunglasses, feel the sun shining on your skin, and go out shopping for a new spring outfit in sweet pastels, bright neon and striking flowery prints!?
For my Dutch readers:
Ook zo toe aan het voorjaar en alvast zin om leuke voorjaarsoutfits samen te stellen? Ga nu naar Zalando.nl en kies 3 favoriete items om zo’n voorjaarsoutfit te creeren. Zalando beloont de mooiste outfit met een cadeaubon van maar liefst €400! Een kleine moeite voor een leuk cadeau, lijkt mij!
These are some of my – very female – favorites by Even & Odd, Mint & Berry, Supertrash, McGregor, Oasis and Noa Noa… What is your favorite spring style?!

In the summer of 2011 I bought my first two yellow nailpolishes: Chanel Mimosa and Koh Baby Yellow, which I reviewed here on livlig-online.com. Those days Catrice Bye Bye Birdie was considered to be the ultimate dupe of Chanel Mimosa. I disagreed, didn’t even like it enough to buy & try it.
The other day I was at Hema and I ran into a yellow polish that truly seemed to resemble my Mimosa. I had to buy and test it. Nextdoor at Kruidvat I found a second yellow nail polish I had to get: Catrice Ernie & Birdie. And this time I have to admit: Ernie & Birdie is the perfect dupe for Mimosa! Exactly the same color yellow, with exactly the same little colorful glitter in it. Both need two layers for full coverage, but I guess that applies to every yellow polish. Chanels yellow takes way longer to harden and stays more funerable throughout the first day than Hema, Koh and Catrice.
The color is still pretty trendy, so if you wanna be a trend follower, I can recommend Catrice Ernie & Birdie (05), for nothing more than €2.50! The comparison, from left to right: Chanel Mimosa, Koh Baby Yellow, Catrice Ernie & Birdie, Hema.

I was planning to stay in my pajamas all day yesterday, but then one of my best friends called and I had to get dressed to enjoy some sinful latte macchiato and little prosecco with her and her boyfriend. I decided to invite my parent over for diner, after all, I was fully dressed already. After cooking up some San FranQuinoa Salad, my mom and I used the kitchen to do some crafting. I won’t yet tell you what for, but I did take some pictures of the process I’d like to share with you…
Did you have a good weekend?
