October is nearing its end… time flies by… and so here’s another Lazy Sunday with another recap of this week’s posts!

In Monday’s beautypost I told you about the Garnier waterproof eye make-up remover I am currently using (and loving).

On Tuesday there was a quote about endurance… and I shared with you a really personal story about how I coped with my husband’s illness and how one is really so much tougher than one thinks…

On Thursday there was this tips ‘n trips about a lovely (but hard) walk we did in the Peak District and the outfit of the week was all about my white tunic.

How has your week been going? I hope everything is just fine… and now on to some days off 🙂

Love, Kathleen

One year of good, fab and lovely posts : tips ‘n trips

Posted on Updated on


Ever since the beginning of my blog I have been posting travel tips ‘n trips. I like sharing my travel experiences with others. And as I always take heaps of photographs when on holiday, it became a habit to put many of them in my travel posts.

Some travel posts did really well while others were hardly read. Today I will put 6 travel posts in the picture. Besides the 3 most popular ones, I will take a look back at 3 posts that didn’t do well at all even though I think they are worth reading!  Read more about these good, fab and lovely travel posts!

Today’s quote : life goes on

Posted on Updated on

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life : it goes on… – Robert Frost

This photo was taken in April when we were on holiday in the stunning Peak District in England… I actually wasn’t feeling all right at the time because of my burn-out, but those walks we did were great for the body as well as the mind and were actually the beginning of my (slow) healing process…

Life is yin and yang, no light without darkness, no happiness without pain, no good times without the bad,…

But luckily life goes on… sometimes a bit quick perhaps, but it goes on. So when things aren’t looking up, when things don’t go as planned, when everything around you seems to fall apart, just remember… life goes on. Read more about this quote!
