I started out in World of Warcraft in June 2006. I had just bought a new Macbook on which i could actually play the game. A colleague showed me the game once at work. He flew somewhere where it was all leafy and green, and close to a sea. I was so intrigued. And i could play it on my mac.
For a couple of years i kept up a blog enwowment.com on my time in Warcraft, where you can read A short history of Rada, my main character. I even mentioned lfs.nl on the about page.
Raiding is a timewaster though, and the websites i used to work on before i played WoW are deadly silent. Someday i do hope to get back to lfs.nl, but that time is not now.

My lipsticks go back to around 1990, maybe even earlier. This is contrary to all the advice i learned reading beautyblogs and watching youtube clips. After a couple of years you should throw your make up away, or so they say. Some, like mascara, even after a few months. Well, I keep mine as long as it lasts.
I do love my lipsticks. Most are sheer, easier for everyday life. Some are opaque, shiny or mat. The lipgloss trend passed me by for the most part. The one from Yves Saint Laurent isn’t a true lipgloss, more like a liquid lipstick, with a long staying power. The Clinique ones i wear the most, the Chunky Cherry is the last one i got. I do know other brands now sell these sheer balm lipsticks too. It’s my next project. Well, that and finding a perfect rozy nude and a dark berry lipstick for once a year!

Today i’m making soup, a sort of minestrone with a sort of pistou. I did look up some recipes in my soup recipe book and did use it as inspiration. This is what i picked out today. It will last me for four days, at least.
I bought most of the ingredients today. Some i already had. Some i forgot! Like the parmesan cheese for the pistou. But i do think i can manage without.

The eight years were only silent for you. To me they were pretty normal. But i did miss making presents. It wasn’t in the forefront of my mind the whole time, but it did pop up.

Welcome to ellenpronk.com.
I did get this domain a couple of years ago. I am using the e-mail as my professional e-mail address, and i used subdomains for work. But i never got around to making the domain itself work. I did make designs, i did install Drupal, then ExpressionEngine, both content management systems. But i finally decided to use WordPress. Since this place is going to be a blog.
