Tag: 10 Little Secrets

sssssssh
I came across a fun tag on the Internet and I had a lot of fun thinking of several answers, so I really wanted to share them with you. It is called the 10 little secrets tag and though not every answer was a secret, it sure took me a lot of thinking. Know what I mean? No? Well, click ahead. 

1. What is one product that makes you feel like a million dollars? 
When talking about clothing, I would have to go for high heels. But they also make me feel old and in pain, because I am no longer able to wear them for a long time. Find out why here. When talking about beauty products I am unable to limit myself to one specific product, so I will have to go for eyeliner, mascara and lipstick. It opens my eyes and adds color to my face.

 2. What is your skincare secret?
The one I tend to use and is as cheap as can be (or free) is using a toothbrush to exfoliate my lips, instead of buying a lip scrub or anything like that. When you have chapped lips, just add a bit of vaseline to your toothbrush and softly make circular movements on your lips with it. Works like a charm.

 3. Share your hair care secret? 
Well, this one was hard. I am quite simple when it comes to my hair, but I do know of one... One that my mom always forced me to do when I was a young little girl, but I believe it surely helped richen my thin hair. Treat your locks with coconut oil! This is the perfect product for anything related to your hair.

 4. What is your biggest diet rule? 
Dieting is not something I tend to do, so I have very little rules on how to lose weight for you (though common sense is quite helpful). The best thing to do (and the best diet out there) is to be healthy, eat small portions throughout the day and do not be too hard on yourself. Enjoy your food. Love yourself. Enjoy life. It's too short after all.   

 5. Any workout tips? 
I would love to be more active and eat healthier, so I always think about these things. I have found that Pilates, Yoga and a dance-type of sport really work for me. Find out what you like and just try it. Not trying is worse than failing (gosh, do I sound corny?). 

 6. Which perfume is your secret weapon? 
I do not have a secret weapon, but I sure do have favorites. "Eurphoria" by Lancôme and "J'adore" by Dior.

7. Show us a clothing item of yours which always turns heads 
This is a hard one. I have been throwing away (read: leaving things in my former room at my parents place) so many things and I have bought new stuff as well.. so I am unable to come up with a concrete example. Which is why I resorted to my boyfriend for his opinion and he thought of the new long greek-inspired burgundy dress I bought in January... (I totally forgot about that) and I agreed! so, there you go.. I dare not show a picture because it has such a deep neckline and I am a bit of a prude. Yeah, maybe I will just walk around the house wearing that dress haha.  

 8. What is your most treasured piece of jewelry? 
Treasured? Hm. So, it has lots of value. I would have to go for the ring my boyfriend bought for me when we were still friends from a fair trade shop. It was unexpected and kind. I wear it almost every day.

9. Who is your style crush? 
I do not really have a style crush. I am not that busy with the style of others. Surely, I will browse on the Internet when bored, I will flip through magazines (though very rarely) and I recognize what I like. However, I am not consciously busy with it. So, I can not help you there. Sorry. What I can do, is tell you which types of styles I like: classy, casual, rocker, grunge, and whatever just happens to appeal to me. I am easy like a sunday morning!

10. Tell us something we don’t know about you.
But there is so much you do not know about me.. so I have no idea what to tell you, haha. Hm. Let me think. I like listening to sad songs; they make me happy (though sometimes they might make me sadder, this does not make the music any less beautiful). Some of my favorites are songs by Natalie Merchant, Bright Eyes, Ray Lamontagne and so on... Do you have that too? Or do sad songs make you, well,  just sad?

I hope you find this tag interesting enough to read. I sure did have a lot of fun thinking about the questions and writing down my answers. Because it is such a fun tag, I would like to tag anyone who is interested! Go for it.. and be sure to tell me if you did this tag as well, so I can read your answers!

  1. Fun post to read! ^^ And very true! If you don't try, you've failed already... En hoe lief dat je vriendje die ring had gegeven toen jullie nog gewoon vrienden waren! :)

    Ik vrees dat ik toch één van die mensen ben die niet begint te snotteren bij sad songs ^^ Tenzij ik al in een slechte bui ben en zin hebben om heel even te verdrinken in zelfmedelijden :p

    1. Dank je wel! Ha, ja hij is ontzettend lief. Nou ik heb precies hetzelfde, alhoewel mijn zelfmedelijden ook weer snel weg is als ik denk aan anderen die het erger hebben. x

  3. Super leuke post! Kom ik weer wat 'geheimpjes' te weten! Dat van die ring is een superschattig verhaaltje, coconut oil is ook een goede tip en dat van die tandborstel doe ik ook al een tijdje, echt beste manier ever om je lippen te verzorgen ;)

    Liefs,

    1. Ik was al benieuwd hoeveel mensen het wisten van de tandenborstel! Best veel, dus niet zo'n geheim meer haha.

  4. Hah, superleuke tag, misschien doe ik 'm ook wel als ik er de tijd voor vind :-)

  5. Aww I'm in the same no high-heel club with you! I just never learnt to walk in them all day, and I don't think I ever will! I do admire girls who can zoom around in heels, but they just make my feet ache and I become very grouchy!

    1. I used to be able to wear them all day everyday.. up until I turned about 20 (I don't know, too close to the quarter life crisis? :P haha) and my feet started hurting so I had to take a break from them. Going back.. it was never the same. *sigh

  7. Wat een leuke tag! Ik vind het trouwens superknap dat je het leuk vind om naar Bright Eyes te luisteren; ik vind het supermooi, maar ik moet dan altijd meteen mijn tranen inhouden op de een of andere manier. Dat is ook meteen de reden dat ik het liefst naar vrolijke muziek luister :)

    1. Bright Eyes is echt geweldig. Ik word er helemaal kalm van, maar soms ook wel verdrietiger (als ik al verdrietig ben). Echt prachtig muziek! Maar ik snap het hoor.

    je te weten te komen! :)

  9. I've never seen a tag like this one. Your exfoliating your lips is pretty cool. I've never heard of it before but it makes sense! I still like high heels but I don't wear them much lately since becoming a mom. :(

    1. I can relate to that! Let me know if you try exfoliating your lips like that!

  11. Hihi! Leuk om te lezen Natasja! :) En heel herkenbaar! Ik heb zo mijn momenten dat ik de ene na de andere sad song beluister en dan hangt het af van mijn mood hoe ik me daar bij voel. Soms word ik er gewoon heel erg rustig van:)

    Liefs,

  12. De geur J'adore is oh zo heerlijk! Ik gebruik ook altijd een tandenborstel om mijn lippen te scrubben!

  15. Bright eyes kan ik écht alleen maar luisteren als ik goed gezind ben. Als het me wat tegen zit en je zet dan zoiets op dat ga ik echt wenen, haha. En ik ga mij echt eens cocos olie voor mijn haren aanschaffen. Ik heb hele droge haren, dus het zou gen luxe zijn :) xo

    1. Ha, dan is het inderdaad geen slim idee om naar Bright Eyes te luisteren! Zeker doen, laat vooral weten hoe het bevalt!

  16. Ik gebruik ook altijd een tandenborstel voor mijn lippen ;) Leuke tag! X

  19. I heard that coconut oil is really good for the hair but I've never tried it. I have a very low-maintenance type of hair so no need for so much attention. Hehe.. I'd love to try Yoga next time coz I think it's really healthy and.. fun? LOL. I love listening to sad songs too, they don't necessarily make me happy though.. but I like listening to them..

    1. My hair is very low-maintenance as well (or I pretend it is) but nourishing it with coconut oil every now and then (whether it is a necessity or not) is always a good thing to do :D Yoga is definitely fun, good for your body and mind. So definitely go for it!

  21. Leuke tag! Ik heb mijn lippen ook al eens gescrubd met een tandenborstel, en het werkt idd heel goed!
