Throwback Thursday

This was my very first longhair-meeting.
I met up with Madeleine in Horsens, Denmark. Not sure of the year, maybe 2003?

I had such an enormous hair-crush on Madeleine: She always had the most wonderfully fairy-like, well kept hair. And she was such an authority on care and especially henna in the longhair circuit.

I learned how to make my first buns through her website. Strangely, it seems only a small portion of it is still functioning? Link

Hello 2018!

Well, hello 2018!
I'm excited to see what the new year will bring us. 2017 ended with some big changes in my work: I applied for something new, got it and changed jobs, then got yet another job offer that I couldn't refuse like a week later!
It's in the private sector so the pay is better and I can get more hours too. Hubby will continue to be a full time student this year, so I'm very happy with this. I will try to stay under a 60 hour work week as a rule though.

So most of all, 2018 will bring us some very exciting economic opportunities and I plan to take full advantage of it.
My economic priority list will be:

  1. Pay off debt (Both hubby and I have student loans)
  2. Renovate
  3. Save up money in stocks and pension
  4. Travel

My general life priority list will be:

  1. Work #1 (You just don't get many opportunities like this one in life!)
  2. Work #2 (I would like to squeeze a bit of this one into my schedule too)
  3. Sleep (So basic, but so important!)
  4. Self care (Stress management and quality of life and all that...)
  5. Be a good wife (Maybe we could arrange a date night once a week or something. I just know I will end up neglecting hubby with this schedule)
  6. Blog (Guess this could be put in as a sub-section under #4?)
