Summer is so close and we have been having so many great and warm summer days this year already. Summer in the Netherlands is never that warm, so besides the occasional dress or playsuit that I would wear on exceptionally hot days, you would not really see me in anything other than jumpsuits, midi dresses, culottes or linen trousers during the summer days that I in the Netherlands. It’s just something that I personally feel most comfortable in.

Last week, while I was planning net content for this week, I was going through some of my blog posts again and saw my ‘go-to spring look’. That got me thinking that I thought it would be fun to describe my go-to summer look for this year. So what I’m wearing in this outfit is such a good representation of what I would normally wear on a summer day in the Netherlands.

My glowy summer makeup look The past few months I have been really loving glowy makeup. I still like to look pretty natural as if I barely have any makeup on, so I always try to achieve a bit of a healthy glow with only a few products. Over the years I have really cut down on beauty products and only really go for natural looks nowadays. This glowy summer makeup look is my newest favourite routine and I have had a few compliments so I have been dying to write a post about it since.

This afternoon I hopped into town, dying to have a little shopping spree. I felt like I had not been into town and just strolled in and out of stores in forever. So when I went into town this afternoon, I was excited to have an old school shopping trip. However, when I went into town, I noticed that I become annoyed and tired because I just couldn’t really find anything that I had pictured in my mind or lived up to the expectations. This got me thinking, am I over shopping sprees?

Shirtdresses seem to have made a comeback for summer this year. Everywhere you look you’ll find these dresses in stores, on girls, on social media. They’re everywhere. And I love it. Wearing shirtdresses during summer is something I always look forward to and I pretty much always include them into wardrobe essentials, because they truly are summer wardrobe staples to me. So when I mentioned these shirtdresses in my wardrobe essentials post, I got the question if I could share a few of my favourite bits, where I get my shirt dresses as well as how I style them. That’s pretty much what I will be talking about in this post.

To me shirtdresses are such a great piece to invest in as I pretty much wear shirtdresses everyday when I am off on holiday. There are always a few items staple colours that I like to have my shirtdresses in.

We have had a couple of really beautiful warm days here in The Netherlands. That got me looking into alternative items of clothing other than jeans or smart trousers, as I don’t really like to wear dresses, shorts or skirts at work or uni during the day. That’s when I stumbled upon linen trousers and boy I am hooked. Ever since I have gotten these linen trousers I am just constantly hunting for new pairs of linen trousers and anything other linen. This post pretty much is a dedication to why I love linen clothing.

Wow it’s already June. I feel like time is just really flying by this year. But it's probably all got to do with growing older and becoming busier and busier as grown ups.

May has been a very lovely month. It was filled with lots of small happy moments in my life. I already wrote lots about my favourite moments of May in this post, but still wanted to reflect on it a little bit in this post. This month has also been a month of many new fashion and a few beauty discoveries/favourites that I have been dying to share with you.


31 May 2018

Happy last day of May! I can’t believe how fast this month actually went, but it probably has something to do with me being sick for a good two weeks. It’s been a lovely, but quiet month, but I am still very grateful for the month I have had. Scratch that, this month started of quiet, but soon resulted in me feeling very stressed because of a few big uni deadlines. It's good that those deadlines are over now, as I can now enjoy and take a bit of a breath again. This month pretty much has been about the small thing in life, as I had such a busy month, and I can't wait to share them with you.

Productivity is one of those things I am really not that good at. I easily go from being very productive to very unproductive and rather lazy. Lately my uni work has been crazy and this has forced me to be rather productive and focused on uni. This is great of course, but I also have work and a blog to create content for. While focussing on uni, I kind of lost track of being productive, especially when it comes to work and my blog. The past couple of weeks have been crazy productive, but also very stressful. That got me thinking this weekend. I want to start my day productive, so I can switch off at night. I especially struggle to be productive when starting my day, which I believe has something to do with me not really being a morning person. In this blog post I am going to share a few things in my life that I will be changing the upcoming month, so I can start my productive day.

I had been wanting to post this outfit post for ages, because I was just so thrilled about these shots. I shot this outfit a few weeks ago but never really had time to edit the photos up until Wednesday evening. However, I still wanted to share this outfit with you, as it is one of my go-to outfits that I wear at the moment. I would say this is one of my go-to spring looks of this year. If you know me, then you know I am all about comfort. I love wearing comfortable outfits, so this outfit pretty much fits that description.

This outfit is a very easy, basic, but most importantly, comfortable outfit. In my opinion this look looks so effortless but pulled together because of the blazer. Keep on reading if you want to see what elements I incorporate into my current go-to spring look.

I love drinking smoothies. It's one one those drinks I always like to drink, especially now that I have been ill the past couple of days. It’s such a good way to get some veg and vitamins inside of you and I love how filling smoothies are. I am quite a picky eater when it comes to vegetables, so I find that this is such a good way to fill my body with a few more vegetables than I would normally eat.

You always feel just so much better after having a smoothie, which is why I love drinking them alongside my meal in the morning. In today’s post I am going to share my two go-to green smoothies with you. When I was younger I was quite scared by the green colour as I felt like it would never be as tasty as a fruity smoothie. I now always go for a green smoothie as I have learnt to drink it throughout the years. Green smoothies definitely don’t have to taste of all the green, leavy bits that are in there.


19 May 2018

Hiya! It feels like forever since I last blogged, truth is, it has been a while since I last blogged. I started feeling really ill last week and have been on bed rest ever since. Hence the radio silence on my blog and instagram this past week. Last night I finally felt good enough to sit up in bed and write a little blog post on here. So here goes.
Lately I have been in quite a few meetings at uni and at work. These past few weeks we have been blessed by the most glorious weather. This made me excited to dress up a bit more for spring meetings. So in this post I’ll share my ‘what I’m wearing to a spring meeting’ outfit.


15 May 2018

This post is so long overdue. I had been meaning to write this post for Friday, but I ended up getting ill and it resulted in me sleeping throughout most of the weekend. The season is changing and the weather really has been so beautiful lately! This got me so excited for springy and summery clothes. With the seasons changing, I went looking for a few new wardrobe essentials in my wardrobe for the upcoming two seasons. In February I already told you how much I was struggling to find SS18 clothes that I actually like for this season. It has taken me a while to figure out what clothes I would love to wear, and three months later I feel like I finally found all the items I will love and waer so much during the upcoming seasons.


9 May 2018

We’re already a couple days into the month of May, but I have only just gotten around to sitting down to write my goals of May. Life has been hectic lately, and I kind of want to write a post about it soon to explain it all to you. But every spare day I have had this past week I have spent either in bed with one of the worst headaches or outside trying to enjoy the beautiful weather as much as possible. However, I did set myself some goals again this month that I want to accomplish by the end of this month.


7 May 2018

With May beginning, I wanted to look back on the month of April. Thinking back to my month, it feels like this has been one of the first months this year where I actually feel like nothing really special happened. But it all probably has something to do with how busy I have been during the month of April. Thankfully I wrote a few notes in my bullet journal on when I had really good days, so that really helped me reflect on April and made me appreciate the smaller things that happened even more.


2 May 2018

Another month has passed and I can’t believe how close we’re getting to summer! April is well and truly over and I am really hoping that May will finally bring some really lovely spring weather around. This month flew by, but thankfully I was a lot more prepared than last month as I took note of five favourites of the month of April. That made it a lot easier to type up this blog.


30 April 2018

One of my resolutions this year was to read more books throughout the year. I love reading books and I have done so ever since I was younger. While growing up I noticed that I just started reading throughout the year less and less. It came to a point where I would only read books during my summer holiday, as that felt like the only moment where I had ‘time’ to actually read. That’s just crazy to think about, and so I made the resolution to read more books. I wanted to read at least a book a month, and I feel like I am doing quite a good job so far, as I am making more time to read in my everyday life.


25 April 2018

This is my fourth year of studying Communications at uni. It’s my final year and it got me thinking about the last couple of years. Studying communications has helped me grow so much as a person. But not only did it help me grow as a person, it also helped me improve some things on the blog. This is something that I didn’t at first anticipate when I started studying Communications. In this post I will be discussing all the things I have learnt so far while studying Communications. Of course I have learnt so much, but there are only so many things that came from theory that I can ‘try out’ on my blog.


23 April 2018

It can be quite hard to keep blogging while also still being a uni student or when you're working full time. I admire bloggers who are able to blog every single day, get creative content going and are still able to work on the side. Blogging can take up quite a lot of time and it's very important to have things for your blog in order, in order to be able to post regularly, while still also having new and exciting content to show. In this post I am going to share a few tips with you on how I try to stay blog organised and to keep up with everything that has to do with my blog.


18 April 2018

Skincare is something that I love. I am always trying to learn new things about skincare. This all has to do with me trying to find the perfect routine that keeps my cystic acne in check. By reading and learning so much about skincare and skin types, my friends and family are always coming to me for tips and tricks when they have their own skin concerns. Now I am going to be giving a little disclaimer as I am in no way an expert or followed a course for this, so please don’t take whatever I am saying too serious. Throughout the years I found a routine that works for my skin, however this routine of products might not work for you. 

Recently one of my friends was asking advice about what kind of routine they should start using as they have joined the ‘twenty club’. I decided to turn it into a blog post as I thought it would be fun to read and it could be quite helpful to you too. Yet again, I am in no way an expert or have studied for this so please do your own research before creating a routine and buying products too.


16 April 2018

Last week was a bit of an off-week for me. I felt very demotivated by social media and I noticed that I have this love-hate relationship with social media. As much as I love social media and would love to pursue my professional career in social media in the future, I also kind of hate it for a few reasons. Today's Monday and it's a new week. I am feeling much better again and I am much more motivated to blog and post on Instagram again. So to break down this whole thought process I have gone through last week, I thought I would share this post on the blog. Hoping to share something relatable or maybe to bring you a peak into my life.


9 April 2018

After posting my five favourites post, in which I mentioned my Lancaster Mademoiselle Ana bag, I thought it would be fun to actually show you what I carry around in this little bag when I am out and about in town. I usually carry this bag along with me when I am off to run errands or am going to see friends in town. This is the perfect everyday sized bag to carry around with you, as you can still fit lots of stuff into the bag, which you will be able to see in this post.


6 April 2018

March flew by and we're already a week into April. I feel like I say this every month, but honestly, where does time go? And most importantly: How is it every month flying by? It took me a while to sit down and properly think about my five favourites of the month of March, mainly because my brain turned to mush after I turned in all of my assignments for uni. So it took me a little while to think of them all, but I soon realised that I have been loving quite a few fashion bits over the past month. So without further or do, these are the five things I have been loving during the month of March.


4 April 2018

It’s a new month and I am setting myself new goals again this month. Last month this post really helped me be more productive and it made me excited about the upcoming month. So even though I am a bit late, as it’s already April, I did set myself a few goals this month to look forward to.


1 April 2018

First of all: Happy Easter! I hope you're eating lots of chocolate eggs while reading this!
This is the first time that I have been able to sit down and actually write a blog post this week. This past week has been stressful and I ended up spending most of the beginning of my week working on deadlines. Then when all my deadlines disappeared, all the stress seemed to get out. I just now recovered from a 3-day headache and am currently curing a breakout with a new skincare routine. March has been such an overwhelming month filled with fun and not so fun activities. Now that I am really thinking about it, it's actually been quite a long month and I am happy that it's over. I am ready for April to start, I am ready for April weather and being able to go out for drinks at night with friends and not freeze my ass off.


31 March 2018

It feels as if my brain is always in overdrive. So many people I talk to have this feeling as if their head is constantly going into overdrive. I personally know that I am an overthinker and I am pretty sure it is related to my anxiety and have insomnia to thank for it. Over the past month I have written down when I started overthinking, and I thought it would be fun to write a post about it. This might be thoughts you would relate to yourself, or you may not.


26 March 2018

I would like to think that I am actually quite an organised person in life. I always have a set schedule of when I have to do things in life. Somewhere along the month of March I kind of lost my swing and with that I also lost track of my schedule. I am paying the price now, because I have two major deadlines coming up tomorrow evening and I have been stressed out since Friday morning.

 Whenever I start feeling overwhelmed by how much I have to get done, I go back to this little list I always set myself. This list remembers me how I stay on top of my life, combining blogging and university together. Instead of just going through this little list of things myself, I thought it would be fun to share them with you too, as they might be helpful to you too.


21 March 2018

This year I have been really focussing on my mental health and just talking about mental health on the blog. I am a big struggler with my mental health but decided I don’t want to let it affect me as much anymore. Now that I am 21 years old, I feel like I want to live life to the fullest with all the people I adore. I want to be happy and appreciate every small thing in life. This is a huge turnaround for me in my life as I used to always be quite pessimistic and negative. 

Now that I am focussing more on positive thinking and being happy and appreciative of small things in my day-to-day life, I have noticed a few changes in my life, behaviour and just how I approach things. And I'm dying to share!
