The Beach...

Yesterday I finally got a day off from work and went to the beach with family and friends.
We went to the beach in Hossegor and the weather was beautiful (too beautiful as you will see why).

So we first went to a nice restaurant close to the center of the town, before going to the beach.

As I said, the weather was wonderful ! Luckily we had sun umbrellas with us cause the sand in the sun was burning our feet.
I spent most of the day just relaxing or reading while watching the big waves in the distance...
The amount of pictures I took is quite limited but I took some lovely ones of the sunset:

So that was my day yesterday, and I had a great time even though I had to pay for that by getting a strong sun burn on my legs. My legs were very red yesterday evening so I covered them with natural yogurt (which normally always works) but it didn't help much. I then put on after-sun creme which also didn't do much.
When I woke up this morning, my legs felt better, they were still red but didn't hurt.....until I tried to stand up.
I was so shocked that I felt such a massive pain in the leg when trying to walk, or even just stand straight. My ankle was super swollen and I could walk maximum two steps. I took some medicine, and covered my legs with cremes and stuff, but I have to stay in bed all day; which means no work, and more time for blogging!
I know you might think I'm one of those lazy people who hate working, but the truth is that it's been now three weeks that I've been working in a restaurant without a day off. No weekend, no day off, nothing! So I'm just happy to be able to relax :)

Anyway, that is my life at the moment and I can't wait for the end of august to come! I will be getting a new camera: not a point-and-shoot one, but a proper canon eos 400d yay!
My aunt will be bringing it over with her, when she comes to visit us. She's a photographer (well, it's her hobby) so she knew where to get me a proper, second hand, but still in good condition camera.
That's when I also finish this summer job, and begin my studies, which means I might have more time to blog during weekends and evenings than I have now.
So be ready to see some better quality pictures and a lot of them!

Have a great day, and summer!

My mini-celebration

Today I'm doing a mini-celebration for the end of school and the results of my exams. I finally finished school after being there for 12 years! As a child, I never thought that it was possible to reach the end of school.
But now I'm finally there and I'm growing up :D!
When I started this blog I was 17 and now I'm 18. So we (my family and I) celebrated me turning 18 and everything that's happening with some ice cream and a -strange- present.

This is one of my favourite ice cream brands. favourite or favorite? :)
And my mom was so sweet and bought me some (only for me, no sharing with my siblings :P)
and when I arrived home from work, I found a strange pirate/treasure box on my bed with a little ribbon on it.

Yes so this box is a present from my father. He was on a flee market and found this old pirate looking box.
When I asked him where the pirate gold was? (haha) he said that this box was great for some of my mountains of jewelry. He had actually noticed how full my other one is and said that this one would do the trick.

So that was something funny and cute about my day today. I decided to try to put up a post everyday, or every second day. I just noticed that I'm much more attracted to blogs where everyday there's something new even if it's nothing too special.

And of course any ideas from your behalf is very very welcome! You can either send me an email or leave me a comment.

So this was my little post for today, and I wish you all a great weekend!

Sorry for my absence...

Hello everyone!
I just wanted to say sorry and make sure you all know that I'm still alive ;)
I've been so busy these last two months with studies, exams, work, ... and so much more! But it's not over, which means it will get more and more difficult for me to upload posts on my blog. I'm at a time in life where so much stuff is happening (finishing school, soon passing my driver's licence, looking for an appartment, ...). But this doesn't mean that I'm not blogging anymore, no way! I love blogging. I never thought I would enjoy it this much when I started. But I do! It's so wonderful. I feel so free: my blog is my own little piece of the internet where I can choose the shape, colours, everything on my page...and the posts! Of course I don't mean that we can put anything up on our blogs, but we have the freedom to take our own photos, to talk in our own words ( by the way, I'm not a good writer, so sorry for mistakes or weird sentences :)) about things that really interest us and might (or not) interest others.
So that's all I wanted to say; I just wanted to remind you that the lack of activity on my blog doesn't signify that I'm bored of blogging, no no no! I just don't find that much time these days.

Well I wish everyone a great day! And I hopefully will post some more stuff.
By the way, feel free to send me ideas or themes for posts (cause I do sometimes need some inspiration)
 by email or comment.  
Have a great day!
