Hello sweet, sweet readers of my blog. You may have noticed I haven't published many posts on this blog lately. I just haven't really been feeling this blog since a couple of months. I feel like I've outgrown it. Like a childhood toy you don't play with anymore, but you also don't want to get rid of. I'm sad to say this will be my last post on this blog. But this doesn't mean I won't be blogging anymore. Because I have a NEW BLOG! This blog is called AnnePlace and it's my online place where I share anything that interests me, including: beauty, fashion, foods, travels and interiors and many, many more. I'm posting on AnnePlace every day, which is a huge improvement from what I've been doing on SickChick. Please check my new blog out and you will see it's much more professional, but still very me, very fun and personal.
I hope you will follow my new blog and social media (Facebook AnnePlace, Twitter @anne_place, Instagram @anneplaceblog) so we can stay in contact.
Much love,

Favourite Lip Combo

Hello lovelies,
How is the new year going? I really wanted to share this lip combo with you, because I have been loving it in December, especially for Christmas. But it can still be worn as a pretty red lip, because it is gorgeous. For this lipcolour I've started with lining my lips with M.A.C Chicory lip pencil. I then went on top with M.A.C lipstick in Retro and topped it of with a red lipgloss by Tanya Burr called Vampire Kiss. The lipliner helps making the lips look clean and increases the time needed between touch ups. The lipstick creates the darkness in the lipcolour and makes the lips less dry. The lipgloss adds some shine and a touch of red. The result? A gorgeous brownish/red glossy lip.
What do you think about this perfect threesome? Do you love it as much as I do? Let me know in the comments.

Resolutions TAG 2015!

Hello my lovelies,
I hope you're enjoying the last day of 2014. Can't wait for the fireworks to start tonight and the champagne bottles to pop.
Last year I did the Resolutions TAG, so why not do it this year again?

1. Name 3 things you did this year you're proud of.

First of all I'm proud of finishing high school and earning my VWO-diploma. Because of my CFS this was something nearly impossible for me, but I managed to do it, so I'm very proud of myself for surprising everyone, including myself, and showing I could do this.
Another thing I'm proud of is deciding to finsih this year of my eduction to become a primary school teacher, even though I won't get enough points to continue next year. Because of my CFS I can't fulfill my internship, which means I have to stop and do a different education next year. I could have said to stop right now, but I decided to continue, because I simply can't do nothing for half a year. I'm thinking about studying speech-language pathology next year, but I'm not complety sure yet.
I find the third thing quite hard to think of. I'm happy I moved out and really enjoy my life in my appartment with my two flatmates, but it's not something I would say I'm proud of.
I think I'm proud for accepting the fact I need help from someone proffesional with my CFS, because I find it gets worse in stressfull periods. I would love to learn how to chill and relax and not be snappy and annoying in stressfull periods. Next year I'm hoping I can see someone to help me with this. Admitting I need help is a pretty difficult thing for me, since I'm quite an independent person and want to do everything myself, solve every problem myself and finish every project myself.

2. Name one thing you wish you had done differently.

I wish I had admitted my health was going downhill earlier, because I get really snappy and annoying and unhappy when I feel sick, which is difficult not only for me, but especially for the people who are close to me. I hate being like this and hurting the people whom I love with nasty comments, so if I had rested earlier, I would have prevented this from happening.

3. What was your biggest highlight this year?

Moving out. I've been wanting to move out for so long. I love my parents and sister a lot. But having my own place and living in the city is just something I've been dreaming of for such a long time. I am so happy to have a beautiful room and nice and sweet flatmates, the rent might be a bit much, but it's definately worth it.

4. What was your favourite beauty product this year?

My Catrice Liquid Eyeliner in Dating Joe Black, which is funny, because last year my beauty resolution was to wear more eyeliner in 2014.
But I'm also in love with my L'Oréal Privée Lipsticks.

5. What was your least favourite beauty product this year?

I had to think really hard about this one. I remember buying a nude lipstick this year, tried it on after having it in my drawer for a month, and threw it away immediately after. It was way too light for me. Most nudes just don't suit me. I can't really remember which lipstick it was. I believe it was from Rimmel, but I may be wrong.

6. Who do you want to thank for being amazing this year?

My family and my boyfriend for sticking with me, even when I'm snappy and not myself. They are such good people.

7. What are the make up/beauty resolutions you have for next year?

Moisturise. Last couple of months I haven't been using moisturiser like I should, every morning and every night, more like 3 times a week. You can imagine my skin feels and looks like a desert.

8. What are your fashion resolutions for next year?

Don't spend so much money on clothes..... Oops.

9. What are your personal resolutions for next year?

I just really want to enjoy this year and hope to learn how to deal with stress.

10. Name one thing you want to check of your bucket list next year.

I would love to book a last minute this autumn, preferebly to Rome, but most places will be fine for me.

That's it. Tag done. Just like 2014. Hope you have an amazing 2015. May everything good happen to you. Enjoy the fireworks and champagne (but not too much) and feel free to do this tag if you like, because you're tagged.

PS Do you like my way over edited fire works picture? I got bored and let myself go.
