So What On Earth Does Loepsie Mean?

Even though I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned the story briefly here and there, I think it’s about time I properly explained where the word Loepsie comes from and what it means. I’m sure many of you have been wondering! First of all: no, it’s not my name (first or last), but I don’t mind being called Loepsie. My name is Lucy, which you probably know if you visit my blog regularly. And if you’re new, hi! Nice to meet you 😉

I’ve been going by the nickname Loepsie for a very, very long time. Let me start this story at the beginning. When I was in seventh grade of elementary school, so 10 or 11 years old, there was this animated children’s show on TV. It was about three brothers who were circus performers. One was huge and round and had a big beard, one was tiny and only had a few hairs, and then there was the “normal” one, if I remember correctly. I’ve been trying to find the show, I believe it was called something along the lines of “The Houdini Brothers”, but I can’t for the life of me find it anywhere. Anyway, the characters spoke in jibberish, and the little one would say something that sounded like loooopsyyyyyy in a high-pitched voice frequently. Usually when doing some acrobatic trick. Many kids watched this show so it was quite a recognisable phrase. Now every now and then people (adults/teachers, usually) would call me Lucy in the English pronunciation: Loosy, rather than the Dutch pronunciation, which is best described with the German letter ü, so Lüsy. I think that’s where the association came from, but one day one of my classmates randomly called me Loopsy in that same pitch that the animated character used. This would be spelled Loepsie in Dutch, so now you know how it’s pronounced if you didn’t already, haha!

Family Time | Little Break

Hello my lovely readers!

As you might know, I take some time every summer to visit my family in Slovakia to enjoy their company and some quiet downtime. While I’m there, I have limited access to wifi and social media dramatically drops down my list of priorities. I’m sure you recognise that feeling, haha 🙂

There won’t be new blog posts coming while I’m away in the next two weeks. Apologies by the way, for slacking on the blog posts in the past two weeks too. I bit off more than I could chew with all the pre-filming, editing, staying at my parents’ and helping out at scout camps, apparently. My YouTube channel always has top priority, so I have pre-uploaded enough videos to my YouTube channel to keep things running as usual. You’ll find two videos a week on there and on here, as always!
I’ll update you with a Loepsie’s Life photo diary when I come back. In the meantime, I’ll be sure to hop on to Instagram every now and then to let you know what I’m up to. Follow me on there to stay in touch!

Have a lovely time everybody, I’ll see you in two weeks!

Vlogmas

Hello my lovely readers!

For those of you that were expecting a photo diary today, there is none. I’m sorry. The reason behind that is that I’ve committed to doing Vlogmas this year! That means I’ll be vlogging every single day from November 28th up until December 26th. I’m going to compile the vlogs into weekly videos that will go up every Thursday, so you’ll be able to see all of the previous week in that one video.

I thought uploading daily (which is what many people go for during Vlogmas) might be a problem for me, and I’m glad I decided to do weekly vlogs instead. I ended up getting sick last week and I spent three full days in bed, unable to film or edit anything. Oops! I did manage to vlog a little though, and of course life went on before and after those days, so there’ll be plenty of footage for you to enjoy when Thursday rolls around. That’s also the reason why there haven’t been any blog posts last week, for which I apologise. I’m trying to catch up on everything ASAP!

The Loepsie’s Life photo diaries will be back weekly on Mondays when Vlogmas is over, starting on January 2nd. Until then you’ll be able to watch my weeks in motion here on Thursdays. Hope to see you then!
