Facebook has started to remind ourselves of our memories, things shared in the past. I find them funny and lovely – usually the memories are something happy and positive – good moments, that we have wanted to share. But obviously, there are some other things too, things that other people have posted on your profile, posts about people that you have lost and etc.

Today, Facebook reminded me of a guy, that posted on my profile. It was some game, where you needed to post your first impressions of a person on his or her profile. The post said “Beautiful, but quiet”.

As in, I am beautiful, but not good enough – not entertaining enough – certainly not the light of the party. On the comment section we changed a few words and the guy asked me why I was so quiet and I responded with something like ‘it’s always the quiet ones’. What I was trying to say with that, was that I had more on my mind, than what was seen on the outside. What I was desperately trying to signal, was that I was worth getting to know to, but I wasn’t one of those, who let people close easily.

Well – I hardly knew that guy and remembering that time, I was hanging out with friends, that I am no longer in contact with.

But I still sometimes hear that accusation. Being quiet – there must be something wrong with me? Am I not happy?

And there lays the mistake – thinking, that only people, who are constantly talking, laughing and smiling are happy. People, who make friends easily and socialize around. People who let it be known, let it be heard.

To be honest, I’m not really sure why I started to write about this subject in the first place. I’m not sure, if I know what I really want to say with it. But what I do know, is that there is a certain peace in knowing yourself, knowing your worth and appreciating your life. That peace creates a happy feeling, that doesn’t only show on your lips, but feels all the way in your feet.

Sometimes all you need is to not to talk with people, but to simply know that they are there.

And if it looks like it’s beautiful, but quiet – so be it. I was never about much noise anyway.

Fifty shades of grey

I read the books and hated the movie. The books were okay – not that good but addicting so that I had to read all three. That movie though was torture right from the very first minute. The longest time I’ve ever spent in a movie theater.

Anyway – I’ve noticed I use a lot of grey in my outfits. I think I’m slowly finding my style and my colors and grey is definitely one of them. I use a lot of black too so grey is a good color to pair it with. Wearing actual colors seems to be a struggle though. Luckily there’s makeup and eye shadows so the pop of color in this look is in my makeup.

My newest makeup addiction is a Jade green eye shadow from Zuii. It’s so beautiful! I paired it with my other Zuii eye shadows and added a bit of glitter – it’s the holidays after all. Also I can’t seem to get over my newest nude lipstick that I got from the Advent Calendar. I think I’m a NUDESTIX kinda girl nowadays.

Today we’re going to Lapland and I can’t wait. I’m in desperate need of a holiday! I still have posts up for you, don’t worry. Let’s keep in touch through Facebook, Instagram and bloglovin, shall we?
