RECIPE | MANGO, AVOCADO AND SALMON BOWL

27 July 2018


Bowls seem to be around a lot nowadays. I personally love eating out of bowls, as it's just so easy to make! This salmon bowl is one of my favourite things to have for dinner. I first had it last year at a restaurant in Marbella. At first I found it very hard to come up with a recipe that was similar to the salmon bowl I had in Marbella last year. About a year later I feel like I finally have perfected this recipe and now feel ready to share my recipe on the blog.

This probably is one of those recipes that takes a little longer than the ones I normally put on the blog, as there’s just a few more steps incorporated into this recipe. Nevertheless I still love making this and it’s so worth it. This recipe contains multiple steps, the first step is marinating the salmon, once the salmon is marinated and in the oven, there are only a few steps left to do.

OUTFIT | PLACES I WOULD LIKE TO TRAVEL TO AND WHY

25 July 2018


I have just come back from my holiday in Marbella. I had such a beautiful time there where I just did nothing other than read books, eat and work on my tan. This was everything I ever really needed, as I just felt like was so ready for a holiday filled with just doing absolutely nothing. So now that I am back from my holiday I feel completely relaxed and ready to take things on again. Whenever I come back from holiday though, I always get this extra lust to travel to other places. I love discovering new places, but am also a major creature of habit and tend to visit places I have been to before. However, in the upcoming years I am definitely going to try and spend some more time and money in travelling to other places. In this post I thought it would be fun to share what places are on my ‘travel wishlist’ right now and why.

OUTFIT | SUMMER CITY BREAK ESSENTIALS

23 July 2018



Summer is in full swing and I love it so much! I am enjoying my summer holiday off of uni and my goal this year was to travel a bit more. That’s why I am hoping to discover a few new cities in the Netherlands and Belgium. Discovering new cities and villages usually involves a lot of walking, so comfort is extra necessary during these warm months. In this post I will be talking you through a few of my go-to clothing items for when I am off to discover new cities during the summer season.

RECIPE | COURGETTE FRITTERS

20 July 2018


I recently had some courgettes left over because I decided to switch up my dinner plans. I wanted to use them up and started looking for tasty recipes that had courgette incorporated in it. I stumbled upon courgette fritters and soon stumbled upon a really tasty recipe of ‘courgette fritters’ or courgette pancakes, as some people would like to call them. I followed a recipe but started altering it in the process of cooking. So when these courgette fritters ended up being so yummy, I decided that I wanted to share this post with you on my blog!

OUTFIT | HOW TO HAVE MORE ENERGY DURING THE DAY

18 July 2018



Over the past couple of months I had been feeling so utterly tired. I did not really understand why I was so unbelievably tired. Being tired isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But in my case it was starting to affect my productiveness throughout the day. I could barely keep my eyes open when at uni or at work and just had no energy to create content for the blog. Like I said, it’s completely normal to feel this way from time to time, but I had been feeling like this from April until June, that’s quite a long time! So I decided to take control and made a few lifestyle adjustments that definitely helped me have more energy throughout the day.

BEAUTY | ACNE PRONE SUMMER SKINCARE ROUTINE

16 July 2018


Over the years I have become a skincare junkie. This mainly has to do with my getting horrible cystic acne when I was 18 years old. Ever since I am just constantly hunting down skincare products that can contain and hopefully eventually even cure my cystic breakouts. Now that it’s summer I have noticed that my skin has been so much better. I am pretty sure it has something to do with me finding products that I absolutely love and use every day as well as slapping on a lot less makeup because it’s just ‘too hot’. In this post I wanted to share my current skincare routine with you as I feel like I have finally got my cystic acne under control. I am not saying that my skincare routine is going to cure your cystic acne, but I definitely do think that a few of these products could possibly help you too this summer!

ESSENTIALS | 4 SUMMER BAGS

13 July 2018


There have been a few bags that I have really liked this summer and I wanted to talk about them on the blog. It definitely feels a bit weird to dedicate a whole blog posts to four bags that I have been really loving this year, but the ‘personal style’ blogger in me just could not resist to do it anyway.

This year I have definitely seen multiple bags float around Instagram that I really like and over the past few months I have been trying to find myself affordable dupes of these bags that I seem to love. I am definitely one of those people who cannot afford to buy myself a new designer bag every month, so I always try to find similar products at stores such as Mango, Pull & Bear, Primark and Topshop. All of these stores have definitely treated me well this year and have made me found all of the bags I had been lusting after.

11 July 2018



The past few months I have rediscovered and discovered so many great skincare and base makeup products. These products definitely have become summer beauty favourites of mine and I I felt like I wanted to share them with you.

OUTFIT | HOW TO START YOUR PRODUCTIVE WEEK

9 July 2018



There’s so much pressure on getting lots of work done throughout the day, to give everything your full attention and to be 100% on top of things at all moments of the day. I try to do my best and have noticed that I definitely am a lot more productive and focussed on my work if I apply a few adjustments into my life and I thought it would be fun to share them with you!

BEAUTY | MY SHORT FLIGHT MAKEUP BAG ESSENTIALS

7 July 2018


I’m off on holiday soon and I always seem to be a bit confused as what I must bring with me on the plane when I am off on a short haul flight. I especially get a bit confused by my makeup bag that I bring with me on my short haul flight. I tend to avoid wearing any makeup on the plane because it gives me great anxiety knowing I will suffer from a really bad breakout a few days later. So I usually only just bring a couple of makeup products with me when I am off to sit on a plane for about 4 hours.

OUTFIT | THE TRAVEL OUTFIT

6 July 2018


Last year I already talked you through a travel outfit and discussed some of my tips for when you are travelling. This year I wanted to post yet another post but talk you a bit more through what I would wear when I am off on a short haul flight and why I would wear an outfit like this.

2 July 2018



Happy Monday and Happy July! First of all I would like to apologize for my absence on the blog this past week. It has been a stressful, eventful and busy week and I am so glad that it’s now Sunday evening and I finally have some down time to sit down and reflect on this past month. I leave for my summer holiday soon and am so ready for it. This past month has been exhausting and I am more than ready to just sit back, relax and enjoy the sunshine these upcoming weeks.
