Guys we’re almost in 2019! Crazy to think about. I hope you’re finishing up the things you’ve wanted to achieve this year still. I know I did but I also been busy with other things, mostly career wise. A lot of changes are about to happen in my future and I’m slightly stressed but also looking forward to it. I will keep you updated through social media but also in my next favorites round up. Right now I want to look back at the past month. If there is anything you want to share — something excited that happened at work or something fun you did or maybe something not so fun — the comment section is wide open!

WORKING ON MY BUSINESS

This month was mostly taken up by working on my business and getting ready to take it to the next level. Also a different direction. Which is taking up all my time during the week. It’s been a process with its ups and downs and doubts — am I doing the right thing? Should I just give up? But in the end I always realize that yes it’s all worth it. I’m committed to make this happen.

In case you’re a fellow freelancer or entrepreneur or ambitious women and you’re in need of some inspiration, I’ve written a couple of career inspired blog post to help you:

HUNTING FOR JOBS

Although I’ve been busy with my own business, I did come to a point that to make everything work I need to get a parttime job to fund the whole thing. The less glamorous part of making your business work. I do see it as a way to get a little more experience under my belt and a good invest for my business.

Hunting for jobs is always a bit of a grueling process. You put a lot of effort into it and try to make the best impression you can to show you’re right for the job. And then you get a rejection. I know I’ve have this happened to me a couple of times and the rejection doesn’t get any more fun. Maybe I’ll do a post on what to do when you get rejected for a job in the future.

LUNCH HOTSPOT
THE STREETFOOD CLUB IN UTRECHT

I had been here before to get lunch in the summer but this month — on one of my many trips to Utrecht — I went with a friend for a quick lunch. Instead of sitting outside we sat in the main area of this lunchspot. I put a photo on my Instagram about how this place is very chaotic — there is lots of pink, marble, neon lights, bold prints — but somehow it works. It’s very Instagramable but even more important, the food is amazing. If you want to have chicken waffles than this is the place to go to!

THE CHIC LIST UPDATE

I’ve also updated The Chic List again with the items I’ve been loving and items on my wish list. I moved the wool blazer* and green oversized sweater* from & Other Stories from the wish list to the things I’ve been loving and added a few new things: Knomo Knomad organizer and Warehouse fall bag. 

On my wish list I’ve added the NARS ignite eyeshadow palette — isn’t it gorgeous? — because I want to get a rose based eyeshadows. Other things I want to get my hands on are an Anine Bing graphic t-shirt* and the & Other Stories suede sock boots*.
