About danielleslingerland

I run a business which saved me from (financial) stress & retired my husband 🙏 In my spare time I play with Paper, 🌱 Make-Up & Essential Oils

{ gratitude }

Buying a product 4,5 years ago that a friend recommended was an ordinary thing that turned out to be a blessing.
I got relief for stress which resulted in better days and nights. I started sharing and helping others, built a business and discovered this network marketing organisation was not like I had what heard it was like.
I am grateful for the lifestyle i have discovered, the things I have learned, the friends I have made and the people I have been able to serve. But most of all i am grateful for the fact I was able to retire my husband from his corporate 9-5 and that I get to work and live life on my terms.

cs lewis quote.png
I have so many books on my kindle (fiction) and on my bossbabe bookshelf but I just can’t pick. What is a recent your fave of yours?

To relax I like to read (historical) fantasy fiction focussing on witches, vampires etc.
Educational I like easy reading books like the go getter and the energy bus.

{ lovebirds }

My heart was bursting with LOVE last night, not just because of a dare to create something about a love, not just because I was scrapbooking one of my favorite photo’s of the hubs and I; but because I was doing what makes my heart sing and my mind zen….  Playing, creating and most importantly memorykeeping, journaling, documenting our story, in this case my love for the hubs.

The Dutch Dares Design Team all documented their loves, with amazing pictures, journaling and techniques. Everyone is welcome to join in, play along, but our Facebook group is dutch oriented so you might need the translation button depending on where you are from.

Did you know

~ bowling is my fave activity with friends and family. I secretly want to join a bowling club. Have my own team, shirt, shoes, ball and bag preferably in pink or turquoise. My family knows this and they will give in one day….

~ I love to buy out furniture second hand. It has character and if I’m over it i can resell it without feeling guilty.

~ my first ever concert was UB40 with my now bestie Angelique. Our friendship started after that we barely knew each other at the time but bonded instantly over music

~ I’m always late because I have no sense of time. Come to think of it same thing applies to space so the furniture reselling is a real thing at our house.

~ I don’t watch Dutch movies, rarely read Dutch novels or listen to Dutch music. I was really born here but mostly growing up abroad will do that.
💁‍♀️ Who’s next?

 

{ i love make-up }

I love wearing it, playing with it, I love the feeling it gives me when it’s on fleek.
But most of all I love safe makeup that is kind to my skin, to my organs and to animals.

Most women, men, young girls & boys have no idea that they put over 300 chemicals on their body before they head out the door in the morning. It’s my mission to teach as many as I can to read ingredients, do the research and make better choices.

Would you like to learn more about safe make-up?

{ scrapbooking sparks joy }

For me anyway! Once upon time ago, I owned an online scrapbookstore, had a design team and started the Dutch Dares I closed down the store after 5 years but we had fun with the dares until 2 years ago. We all needed a break, for different reasons, and then I did a thing this month …

Out of the blue I polled who missed it, the DT missed it and many participants did too. Many big fat YES’es so we announced a restart, started a FB group to replace our old blog, fb page and are having so much fun re-introducing ourselves with some old layouts.

I found these while looking for my 3 fave layouts…

{ hello 2019 }

{ Prosper }
Everyone was sharing their word for 2019, I’ve been doing it for years but was struggling to find one this time around. My archive showed me some amazing words I chose in the past; Nourish, Thrive, Believe, Embrace, JOY, Flourish.

It took a while but it found me, a word that is so full of meaning in both my personal and my business life! My word is PROSPER 👊

What is your word that will inspire you in your life this year?
