My Answer:

I actually always find joy in every little thing daily, I am quite silly and childish. But extreme joy was probably about a week ago when I got a ticket to go visit one of my friends ( she is also a blogger on Youtube, but she is a beauty blogger ). It’s been a while since I’ve been far out of town, like a really long while. And this will be a first time we will see each other in person, cause since we met on YouTube we’ve only spoken on the phone. The first time we spoke on the phone we both felt like we’ve known each other for thousands of years and now we finally get to see each other for the first time in this life time, I’m super exited :).


  • Q – When was the last time you laughed your heart out and why?


Meet me On Monday


My Answer:

I do that daily :), laughter is my favorite thing and I entertain my self with funny videos on youtube, I get my dose of laughter every single day. And my favorite part about watching videos on youtube is the comments, this is when I really burst out to tear laughter, people are quite funny you know, especially when they are sitting and typing away on their computers.


  • Q – If you were a character in the movie which character would you be and why?


Meet me On Monday


My Answer:

Hands down – Alice In Wonderland! Because all my life that is exactly how I feel with all my dreams and visions that I get, and now that I even have my own white rabbit, I’m definitely like Alice all the way.


  • Q – What is the one beauty product you absolutely cannot be without?


Meet me On Monday


My Answer:

I absolutely cannon live without a good facial moisturizer. If you drop me on an island, I can make a face wash, face scrub, face toner, face masks but a good facial moisturizer will be very hard to make.


  • Q – What is your way of staying consistent with a healthy lifestyle?


Meet Me On Monday


My Answer:

I never force my self to do anything especially if I feel like I had to drag my self by the tail. If I lose motivation, I know that it’s time to take a break and I do without feeling guilty, as much as I need. If I’m craving sweets I allow it, because I know that when our body craves something, we need to give it. I keep balance between everything, so after I eat sweets I naturally want to eat healthy things, and after a good break my body wants to exercise. Being this way is what helped me to stay consistent all these years.


Leg’s mingle my Minglers!

Lot’s of Hugs,

  • When was the last time you felt extreme joy and why?

    Funny you ask, two days ago in my sleep I dreamt that somebody who was sitting opposite me was cracking jokes constantely. In my dream I had to laugh so loud I started to make funny noises with my nose like a little piggy. Then I woke up and a couple of minutes later my boyfriend woke up and we started to crack jokes immediately. That is the best start of the day EVER!

    Also I got the job that I wanted. This new job is part of the process of making a career change. Very excited that it will probably work out the way I want it to be! πŸ™‚

    When was the last time you laughed your heart out and why?
    Every time I watch the BBC series ‘Miranda Hart’ I need to gasp for air, its so funny!

    If you were a character in the movie which character would you be and why?

    Hermomine. I love the Harry Potter stories and the magic and the fact that it can be quite scary sometimes. I also recognise myself a bit in her. I like to study.

    What is the one beauty product you absolutely cannot be without?
    Moisoriser. I have a dry skin. I need that.

    What is your way of staying consistent with a healthy lifestyle?

    I don’t find it hard to do that at all because I feel sluggish and grumpy otherwise. Annoying part is that sometimes work or social norms make it a bit more difficult. For instance in my country (The Netherlands) you eat bread (preferably with cheese) two times a day. Bread in such quantities do not work for me. I may have a slice of bread as a snack but not for a meal, several times a day and every day. I hurts my tummy, I feel sluggish and I need to eat LOADS of it before I feel full which makes me gain weight I prefer eating cottage cheese, with nuts, raisins and fruit instead. Bringing this food to work always gets you the look and telling people that you only sometimes eat bread makes people concerned.. *sigh* But I have got to a point where I realise I know my body pretty well and I have to do what makes ME feel good.

    • Such an adorable dream story πŸ™‚

      I’m exited for your career change, is it what I think it is ????

      • hahha uhm I don’t thinks so, I am not going into sports and training, but I am entering the (renewable) energy sector. However its fun advising collegues on sports, training etc. πŸ™‚

  • tee_w

    I think I’m first but I don’t know what to say to these questions! Lol other than the beauty product one, I don’t really use anything? Maybe I’ll come up with something later? πŸ™‚

      I love to laugh, so I do it all the time, try to watch funny movies, funny videos on youtube, and laugh with my children, we had a moment this weekend with my middle son, he dropped his egg yolk he was trying to eat in the restaurant (without breaking it) and said the MF word, then he was OMG I just swore in a restaurant, that’s awful, he managed to get the egg yolk into his mouth and I made the comment – ya, and it wasn’t even a nice swear word. Which made him laugh, and choke & snort the egg up, so then it was coming out his nose, and then we were all laughing, but trying to be quiet about it! It was pretty funny, he was sneezing eggs for a while! Everytime we would start laughing again!

  • Katerina Gjorgievska

    I was extremely happy a few days ago, when I won I little prize fr?m a magazine I read πŸ™‚ I also feel extreme joy when I dance to music by “Los Amigos Invisbles”, “Foltin”, “the Beatles” and many others.

    I laugh my heart out every time I see an excellent comedy, like “Zoolander” for example :)) I love his wise words, like: “I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.” – precious! :)) Also, “Casa de mi Padre” with Will Ferrell made my abs sore!

    I friend once told me I remind her of Monica, from “Friends”, but I am not sure I really resemble her. I would like to be a female character in a Woody Allen movie, they are usually very smart and sexy πŸ˜‰

    I can’t live without my Dr. Temt face cream in winter and without my sun protection cream in summer. My skin is dry and I have very white completion. I burn immediately but I never get a tan.

    I try to stay consistent in maintaining a healthy lifestyle by listening to my body. I try to stay in sync and not give in to stress. I think stress is my main enemy, when it comes to my health, so I give my self time to relax and do something I enjoy, every day.

    Have a nice week everybody, Monday mingle is a great way to start it! πŸ™‚

    • Los Amigos Invisibles are very good, make you dance πŸ™‚

      • Katerina Gjorgievska

        Just checked them out on YouTube and I like them a lot πŸ™‚ I started moving to the music right away, thanks! πŸ™‚ I think you’ll like Foltin, listen to this when you have the time:

        • Thank you. I liked Foltin, I will try to get its music, sounds very interesting.
          I tend to listen only one genre but to be honest I love to find different kind of music all the time πŸ™‚

          • Katerina Gjorgievska

            I’m glad you liked them πŸ™‚

    • What did you win?

      I love Zoolander, I heard the 2nd one is coming out soon. I think I’ve watched that movie 10 times at least and I still laugh every time.

  • When was the last time you felt extreme joy and why?
    Β°IΒ΄m really thankful for for every day in my life!!

    When was the last time you laughed your heart out and why?
    Β°yesterday when my mum told me that she was at my sisters house and she was baking an applepie( my sister is a very good cook/baker). she had to go home when the cake was ready. it was like a bite to the nuts to leave the house without having a bite of this “fair & beautiful cake”. πŸ™‚

    What is the one beauty product you absolutely cannot be without?
    Β°a good haircreme. without it my hair would be less shiny and hard to tame πŸ˜›

    What is your way of staying consistent with a healthy lifestyle?
    Β°joy by doing it! know my needs. no doubt in living it!

    hello Tati, happy monday mingle πŸ™‚

    1) i do feel extreme joy quite often… for example after I finishing your workout :), when I am in the mountains, when I see a beautiful nature, people who I love:) I can say i feel it very often, and I am happy for that!

    2) I laughed my heart off this weekend, when I went with my colleagues to a carnival party. They were all dressed up and were so so so funny! i couldnt stop laughing! i can laugh about any small thing πŸ™‚ my sister also made me laugh today. she is pregnant and start feeling the first hormone waves πŸ™‚ she was very funny today what makes her completely upset :))

    3)i would be coco chanel from the movie which was made about her life. an extremely powerful woman. the same goes to Julia and Julia, who got everyone with her cooking skills πŸ™‚ i like to watch movies about women, who have charisma and really achieved a lot in their lives, but still kept modest and true.

    4)i coudlnt live without a moisturizer…the same, my skin is very dry and it would get very itchy if i didnt put cream on it..

    5)just simply loving it πŸ™‚ I think we also make healthier choices in food and in general, when we train consistently. Its like our body needs the right fuel and giving us back the reward for that we treat it right. i am completely addicted to the feeling after the workout. this keeps me motivated. I cant imagine my life anymore without exercising. i also allow myself some treats from time to time and I also take some time to rest. I learned it from you Tati, and its very good in keeping on the energy and motivation. Take some rest without feeling guilty :)))

    Thank you and have a nice day all :)xxxx

  • My hubby applies today’s quote in his career. There is a Ted talk video that has this quote. I’m not sure if the presenter of the talk is the originator of the quote.
    1. I’ve joy all the time. I did feel excited and joyous this morning when my neighbour called and asked me to go snowshoeing with them this afternoon. I’ve never snowshoed, also the gesture was extremely sweet because my hubby is away and I was starting to want the company of others.
    2. The last time I laughed my heart out was last night. I was scared by my reflection in the window…I thought someone was watching me. I screamed, ducked down and crawled to the kitchen to grap a knife then realized I was no where near a phone to call 911. I wait for the intruder to break in (felt like the longest wait ever) when nothing happened, I slowly made my way to the light switch and turned on the lights. Once I realized it was my own reflection I burst into the craziest fear tainted out of breath laugh I’ve had in a long time.
    3. The robot from the movie the Iron Giant. The movie is based on a novel I love very much “The Iron Man” by Ted Hughes. The story of this big and mechanical object being very gentle and soft was very touching and appealing.
    4. A good body mosturizer…my skin is that of an alligator without mosturizer.
    5. Being consistent in general flow into my heathy lifestyle.

    • OMG that’s funny, it happened to me too a couple of times, I thought that someone was watching me and turned out it was me πŸ™‚

  • Hello everyone, have a nice monday and letΒ΄s mingle.

    1. I felt extreme joy when I met my little puppy Teodoro, he always makes me happy.

    I also felt extreme joy when I saw my sister again after 8 months or so πŸ™‚

    2. I always laughed my heart out, I donΒ΄t like to control myself. I have a pretty good sense of humor and I love laughing XD

    3. Movie “My blueberry nights” from Wong Kar Wai (One of my favorite directors). My character would be the one Norah Jones made “Elizabeth”. A girl that couldnΒ΄t say good bye to some love and eventually makes a trip to get her mind back and also a bit of her soul meeting incredible characters that transform her, taking her to the same place she wanted to leave but with a different perspective, and a new love. πŸ™‚

    4. I cannot choose one, It had to be a conditioner/anti frizz product, moisturizer for sure AND a razor to shave my legs, lol.

    5. When it comes to healthy lifestyle I think of all the amazing benefits I get from eating raw for example, or veggies, I think about what is happening inside of me, and how that kind of nutrition is giving me a new glow skin for example, or no wrinkles πŸ˜‰ The exercises are pure happiness, who doesnt like to be happy?


    • OMG the razor, good one! I totally would need that as well

  • Happy Monday! I’m starting today on a 30 Day Quest to think better thoughts and get myself out of a rut, so this Monday Mingle is a nice exercise to start that off with! I’ll also be fitting in at least 10-15 min meditation every single day.

    When was the last time you felt extreme joy and why?
    This last Christmas vacation. The kids were here, and that was awesome, and the for the second half of the week, my boyfriend and I had a total staycation and got giggly and silly for several days in a row. It felt wonderful!

    When was the last time you laughed your heart out and why?

    Either yesterday or Saturday. I laugh my heart out usually at least once daily. Gabe and I love to make each other laugh, and he usually gets a good, hearty belly laugh out of me daily. I couldn’t say about what–something silly!

    If you were a character in the movie which character would you be and why?
    I totally agree that you are Alice!! I’ve always felt an affinity towards Eustacia Vye of Return of the Native. I think because she’s mysterious, compelling, headstrong, misunderstood and secretive. I don’t know if it’s the best encapsulation of me, but I always felt a bit misunderstood, esp growing up. I also always loved Mina of Dracula, and luckily, I’ve played her twice on stage, which was a dream for me. That’s not like my life at all, either, LOL…I guess I am fascinated by the darker forces that compel us, especially in environments where it’s totally unexpected.

    What is the one beauty product you absolutely cannot be without?
    Moisturizer. My skin gets dry. right now I just use coconut oil. Sometimes I use shea butter. I think I want to purchase that Dr. Hauschka stuff you recommend…might be better for daytime.

    What is your way of staying consistent with a healthy lifestyle?

    I think #1 for me is exercise. It’s the easiest for me to latch on to (more than diet). And if I’m exercising and feeling well that way, the food tends to follow. πŸ™‚

    Happy Monday!!! πŸ™‚

    • Lili Suke

      Hello Kendra. What is the program you are starting? The 30Day Quest? What is it about and is it online too? πŸ™‚ I am asking because I am also looking for some meditation program..thank you πŸ™‚

      • Oh! It’s nothing specific…I’m just doing it myself. But here’s what I’m doing: I’m committing to at least 10 min a day of meditation, no matter what. Hopefully more, but 10 min is okay. And I’m making conscious choices to think better thoughts. I follow Law of Attraction, so, like, instead of thinking, “oh NO! I have to go to work! I don’t want to!” I’m trying to think things like, “I can’t wait to be effective and busy today.” Just trying to not choose the worst-feeling and most pessimistic viewpoint. And meditation. So I’m hoping that if nothing else, I’ll be in a happier place at the end of 30 days, and maybe even I’ll be in a better place with my work/money/friends whatever. πŸ™‚

        • Lili Suke

          Hi Kendra,…ouh thats nice! I was thinking about something similar. I am also a strong believer of the law of attraction and I also believe this has made us to be a part of this very nice lovingfit community. I always have a feeling, that we, who write here have very similar thinking and path..i wish you good luck! let me know if this has improved your life. I will try to do something similar..i like your sentence about work..I need it too…;)

          • Yes, I think so! I LOVE this community, this site, Tatianna of course. It’s one of the things in my life that is just about perfect. Thanks for your support! You know, I never intended to tell anyone, but it ‘s actually very helpful to keep myself on track. πŸ™‚

          • Lili Suke

            Good luck.. Its great that you have shared this with us:-) i got motivated:-) good luck and let us know how it has changed things in your life:-)

        • You are going to be in a better place!

    • Goodness girl I am so happy you are starting this challenge, thoughts are so powerful, I’ve changed so much in my life with thoughts. Meditation is a very powerful tool that opens so many doors and keeps the peace inn. Let me know how your challenge is going.

      Definitely get the Hauschka cream ( not the light one, get the Original, this stuff is amazing. Get it on ebay it’s much much cheaper. Also make sure to get the German version. )

  • Evaleen

    So happy for you that you’ll get to see your friend in person!!! I’ve
    had close friends that I never got the chance to meet, so I can imagine
    how great that must feel. πŸ™‚

    #1 – Not sure that I’d consider any of them as ‘extreme’ but little moments of elation are pretty common πŸ™‚ usually over small things, like snuggling my pets, or even just a great-tasting cup of coffee. :p
    #2 – I laugh all the time, and lately it’s been over stuff from (like the Grumpy Cat or
    Penguin) plus this adorable cat vid… yep, I spend a lot of time on youtube as well, haha.
    #3 – I’d probably be Riddick from the self-titled films, he’s pretty badass. πŸ˜€ I can say though, I’d never want to be a character that wasn’t adventurous.
    #4 – Shampoo I guess? I have such long hair that washing it often is quite the necessity lol. But except for that and some lotion for occasionally dry hands, nothing else.
    #5 – If I don’t eat healthy most days or get vigorous activity several times a week, I start to tire easily and don’t sleep very well– so that’s my biggest incentive to stay on track. I can still keep working out though even when my diet is poor, but admittedly it feels much harder. And yes, being too strict can sabotage things, but there are also times that I’m very motivated to stay disciplined for weeks straight… I feel that it gives me real momentum to drive forward with. But like all things, that’s also best in moderation. πŸ™‚

    • OMG that kitty was was so funny, cat’s are such joy, I used to only have cats and I really love their energy. Now I have 2 dogs and a rabbit, definitely dreaming of a cat but it’s not going to happen for a long time, sigh
