I’m sorry this post is a bit late but this weekend has been very hectic. I don’t even have time to study and my exams start next week so everything’s a bit crazy right now. I also want to tell you in advance that I won’t be doing a weekly post anymore for the next month because I really have to focus on my exams. It’s the responsible thing to do. Luckily, I have one more post for you.
This week I have been meeting up with Eva a couple of times because she just came back from Barcelona. She’s taking a gap year and has already travelled to Paris and Barcelona. She was in Belgium for only a week so we made the best of it and I enjoyed every minute I spent with her. Today she will be leaving for Dublin and she will be staying there for six weeks. So when I’m finished with my exams she will be back and then I get to spend more time with her.
I was in shock when I saw her for the first time. She just got back from the hairdresser’s and she cut her hair short and dyed it blonde. I love it! She truly has the balls to do something crazy and she can get away with it. I think it looks great on her!
We had lunch together and after that we went to the Or, which is an espresso bar in Ghent. We’re both not that into coffee so she had tea and I had home-made lime-lemon lemonade, which was delicious by the way.
When I got back home I was really excited because my orders arrived. You can read about that in my previous post.
Two days later Eva and I met up again and the weather was absolutely amazing. I even got a little bit sunburned. We walked around, sat down for a while, talked and went to Julie’s House to buy ourselves a slice of cake. Eva bought the brownie one and I went for the white chocolate and ginger cookie one. I just love Julie’s House, they have the best cake and cupcakes in Ghent.
Eva had to leave quite early in the afternoon so I went to see another friend of mine, Chiara. She was at the hairdresser’s at the moment so I went there and we talked while her hair was getting done. She wanted to go a shade lighter so the hairdresser put a few different shades in her hair. I have to say it looks really nice, a lighter hair colour suits her well.
On Friday it was the honouring of my brother’s competition, which I told you about in my previous My Week On Instagram post.
He was one of the fifteen laureates and I’m very proud to say that he ended seventh. I guessed he would end between fifth and twelfth so I was really happy for him. This competition is a great reference for future employers and it’s a great motivation for young wood workers. He won a collection of very nice chisels and a gift voucher worth 100 euros to spend at Santens hardware.
Yesterday, I did my first makeup job. I did the makeup of a friend of my mother’s for her bachelor party because I’m doing her makeup on her wedding day as well and I wanted to practice on her first. It worked out really well, and she was happy with it. Unfortunately I have no photo of her makeup.
Because all the women were at her hen party, the men decided to throw a BBQ. You have to know that they all have children so I was busy all night entertaining them. I’m exhausted, I now know that I could never be a kindergarten teacher. I love children but it was a bit too much for me.
I hope you enjoyed you week/weekend, you won’t be hearing from me for a while but I’ll be back!
