Happy Monday! This week will be extra long as it already started yesterday! To keep my energy up for a 6 day week, I plan to sleep on time and make sure I have all vitamins in my system...and a good cup of coffee! I tend to snack on bad things when working long hours as I tend to forget to eat and then end up indulging in all that is easy and at hand. So to be prepared, I have put together some healthy snacks (like below) and go for it :). Happy week!
This weekend a had a couple of days of fun in London (one of my favorite cities) with my (ex-) colleagues turned friends. There was of course some shopping involved, but we had the most fun walking the streets and markets and enjoying the weather (the sun came out a couple of times). Here is a summary of what we've been doing (there is a lot of food involved):
Summer is actually coming! The past weekend wasn't super warm, but the sun was out and the rain stayed away. The forecasts look good and I can wear a blazer (with scarf!) to work. I might even buy a bike (living in Amsterdam, it is quite shocking when I tell people I don't cycle, it's the ultimate shame) and enjoy the sun while having a little workout. That's how much I have missed this.
Being positive seems to open up more doors as when you come from a place of no. Yes leads to energy to seek or see options and taking initiative to reach that goal. Setting goals often leads to more goals to reach, but that is what I believe life's about: climbing that ladder of personal growth and moving forward and simply being (happy). Set backs can always happen, but by staying positive, you can work through them and start again. Have a wonderful and positive week!
This weekend my friends are coming over to Amsterdam to enjoy some much needed quality time. We all used to live in Amsterdam for a while, but one after the other decided to spread their wings and be adventurous. The places they moved to are wonderful and always love to visit them, but I miss them too. So I am super excited and my weekend will be great! Have a great one too!
Of course I went to see the Great Gatsby yesterday! The movie was as expected: very drama-romantical. Loved the costumes. Loved the music (Kanye, Jay-Z, Lana del Rey, Amy Winehouse, Beyonce). Loved the actors. (Almost) loved the 3D. The story was ok, not super exciting, but all the distractions named above made up for that. Happy Tuesday!

Happy Monday! While enjoying an extra long weekend, the weather is not really cooperating. I am not the type of person who needs to be out at all times, but some sun and dry skies are never unwelcome. I might take advantage of the rain and indulge in a movie. Will let you know which one I chose!
