The Isley Brothers – Contagious

Posted by: Leander @ 12:00 PM - Filed in: Music - No Comments

It’s Thursday, you all know what that means!? Throwback music video!

I thought I will post an oldie but goodie music video. Remember this song from 2001, Contagious by The Isly Brothers feat. R. Kelly. This video is so good, in my opinion. I love the video and the song. Big no no, to all the cheaters tho. Still, I think Mister Bigg handled it too well. I would cause some serious damage if something like that ever happened to me, that’s for sure! LOL.

Family Easter weekend of fun

Posted by: Leander @ 9:30 PM - Filed in: Leander - No Comments

Hello, everyone!

How are you all doing today? I hope everyone is doing great. I’m doing pretty good. I had a great Easter weekend up north with family. It was great seeing them and having loads of family fun and laughter. And it was great being out of the house for a couple nights.

We drove to Heerenveen on Saturday afternoon, which is in the north of Holland. That’s where my aunt, my mom’s younger sister lives. It’s about a 2 hour drive. Arrived safe and sound we immediately got food shoved in front of our faces, which is something that’s very typical in my family. Food. Lots of it. We stayed in the whole evening, just catching up and having lots of laughs.

On Easter Sunday we had a nice breakfast, stayed in the whole afternoon. I even took a nap, because I didn’t had a good night sleep. I slept on a mattress in the living room and a few people in the house were snoring really loud. Oh boy! But later in the evening we all went out and about to the casino in Leeuwarden. I didn’t gamble, because I don’t really like it. Maybe it’s because I always have bad luck when it comes to gambling. So I just observed the others and walked around. I still enjoyed myself, tho.

On Monday my cousin Sharleen and Elvin came over to see us. They are two of the five children of my aunt. My cousin Elvin and his girlfriend Marijke got two of the most adorable little kids. The last time I saw that was last year August, so it was awesome seeing the two kiddies again and see how they’ve grown so much. The eldest is Jessiah, she’s 4 years old. Then there is Jyron, who I like to call a miracle boy. He was born pre-maturely at the 6th month of pregnancy. He sure is a fighter and doing great and being healthy at age 2. So freakin’ cute he is.

Monday night we drove back home. I slept most of the car ride, as well as my cousin Merline from Rotterdam, who came along with us the whole weekend. I was glad to be home again, because that meant I could sleep in my own bed again. When I was home I checked all the pictures I took of my weekend, and I enjoyed the ones with my cousins and the little kiddies. They are just too damn cute!

Here are some pictures of my Easter weekend with family!

I hope to see my family again real soon. They live too far away. Hopefully we can drive up there again soon so I can have some more quality time with  them. Bless them!

I hope everyone else had an awesome Easter weekend. Let me know what you all did. I’m going to continue relaxing  the evening away, and wait for my vlog to finish uploading. Take care, everyone! Ta-ta for now!

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.

20140418-232012.jpg

20140418-232020.jpg

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.

20140418-232038.jpg

20140418-232046.jpg

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.

20140418-232027.jpg

20140418-232055.jpg

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!
