Oil burner gift set from Action

Posted by: Leander @ 11:28 PM - Filed in: Stuff I Love - No Comments

Hello, everyone! How are you doing today on this lovely Good Friday? I sure hope everyone is doing well.

I have never ever done a ‘haul’ blog before, so I’m going to give it a try and show off something that I purchased today at a store here in Holland called Action.  A brand new Action opened today in Delft, the city that I was born in, and it was crazy busy, which didn’t really surprised me, because Action is one of those so called ‘low-budget’ chains with stores here in Holland, Belgium, Germany and France. They sell anything from cleaning products, office products, clothing, home accessories, electronics, candy, toys and much more!

To get back to my haul blog, I purchased this oil burning gift set with scented aromatherapy oils and a ceramic oil burner. The set includes twelve little bottles with oils for each month with different scents.

The scents included are:

January – Rose
February – Vanilla
March – Jasmin
April – Lavender
May – Blue Water
June – Wood
July – Musk
August – Sandalwood
September – Blueberry
October – Strawberry
November – Honeydew
December – Mango

This package is definitely something that would be a great gift for a friend/acquaintance, family member or maybe just for yourself. The gift set at Action is available for only €4,99! There is also a compact version available that includes a ceramic oil burner and three little bottles of oils for €1,89. I personally thought the bigger gift set is better and it would last longer.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any little tea candles at home at the moment. I totally forgot to get a box today when I was out and about. It will be the first thing I will get after the weekend. I can’t wait to try it out. So far the scents already smell divine.

How to use oils, pour a few drops of oil in the ceramic oil burner with a teeny tiny bit of water. Lit a tea candle and place it underneath the top of the ceramic oil burner and that’s all. Your personal space, or someone else’s space, will smell lovely and it will sooth the mind and mood.

There are tons of different scented oil burning sets. Do you sometimes burn scented oils? Which ones do you use or like?

On another note, I don’t go shopping that often, but if I do would you like to see a haul blog with what I bought and what my  thoughts are about it? Let me know in the comments! :) Thanks for checking out my blog. I hope everyone will have a great Easter weekend. Ta-ta for now!

Nsync – Pop

Posted by: Leander @ 12:00 PM - Filed in: Music - 2 Comments

Here’s a Throwback Thursday music video. So today, since it’s Thursday, it would be a great excuse to throw Nsync’s Pop music video in your face! This video is not from the 80′s or 90′s, but when you hear the song you might think “where did the time go”, right? This video is from 2001! Freakin’ twelve years ago!

Still love the track. And Justin Timberlake looked so damn yummy in this video. I mean when doesn’t he look hot, right? Enjoy and have an awesome day!

What if Madonna read my blog?

Posted by: Leander @ 2:26 AM - Filed in: Leander, Madonna - No Comments

Wow, can I get someone to ring the GEEK alarm, please? I did a little mock-up of a picture of Madonna, that was taken at the Buzzfeed office on Monday evening, and I did some creative photoshopping and ended up with the following…

Madonna is checking out my blog! Have you ever? Looks kinda neat right? I’m such a nerd, I know. I was bored and came up with this little idea. What if Madonna really read my blog? Yeah, right. I highly doubt that. The woman wouldn’t care. She’ll be like “Hmm, who is this little fucker?”.

Anyway, that’s all I wanted to share with you. The picture ended up looking like a nice little promo badge for my blog. I hope everyone is having an awesome week so far! Ta-ta for now!

Last year my ass was on Ellen

Posted by: Leander @ 8:00 AM - Filed in: Leander - No Comments

Exactly a year ago today, my ass made it on The Ellen Show. Ellen sometimes does these segments on her show, during her monologues, where she shares pictures people post on Facebook and Instagram, and one of the pictures I posted on my Instagram made the cut! Well, it’s actually a picture of my ass, but still… it was a proud moment I had.

Ellen’s monologue from that specific show was been uploaded to her YouTube channel and indeed, she is showing off my ass… in a ripped pair of Gap undies! She did a little segment during her monologue about her followers on Instagram and… well, see for yourself. My picture is shown at 2:52.

I never got in contact by one of Ellen’s team members about getting a pair of Ellen undies, but that’s okay. That moment no one can take away from me and it’s on YouTube forever, and watched by over 4 million people. Something to be proud of, I suppose. Even if it’s just my ass! LOL.
