What To Wear // Autumn 2017

I used to think I was a Summer girl through and through, but with the imminent arrival of Autumn and all the beautiful things that come with it (cosy sweaters, scented candles, hot chocolates), I can’t deny this upcoming season holds a special place in my heart. Transitioning from Summer into Autumn can be a…

Hello September! // Editorial

Hello… it’s me! I was wondering if after all these weeks you’d like to read what I’ve been up to over the Summer – because, let’s be honest, the past couple of weeks (months?!) have been full of radio-silence. I feel like so much has happened, and so much is currently happening, since I’ve last…

Moving Masters #3 // Decisions, decisions…

One of the most important yet scary parts of getting a new apartment and moving house would be the part where you have to make some pretty serious decisions. Either you have to make them on your own, which requires quite some independence and confidence, or you have to make decisions together with other people,…

The Honest Hour #11 // Moving Out

Yesterday I moved out of my student room. Even though we had already moved most of my stuff and I had already moved in our new place in Rotterdam, yesterday was the day I really moved out of my student room. Already as I was walking up to the flat from the parking lot, I saw…

Story Saturday #1 // “Starry Night”

Do you think, that there will be stars afterwards? That when you close your eyes and shut the door behind you, there will still be light to extinguish? I think there will be, because I need the starry night to let you go. They are memories. Shining, pulsating and brilliant memories. The stars are the…

30 Days Challenge // Day 15 – Write A Letter To Your Family

Dear family, I am not sure what my earliest memory is. The first few couple years of my life are collided into a whirlwind of images, sounds and smells, all connected to one tiny house in the countryside. The house where my first memories were created and the house where little sister was born. One of…

Bye Bye 2015! // A Throwback Thursday

One of the best parts of having a blog is that at the end of the year, you can look back at all of your previous posts and travel back in time. On this Thursday, the last day of the year 2015, I’m having a little Throwback Thursday. Join me as I look back on…

A Road-Trip Through France – Étretat // Photo Diary

A couple of weeks ago, my mother and I went on a road-trip through France. We walked amongst waterlilies and thousands of tourists, saw paintings literally come to life and during our final stop in Étretat, we witnessed the spooky side of the cliffs Monet painted so many years ago. The entire beach was covered…

A Road-Trip Through France – Rouen // Photo Diary

It has been two weeks since my Mom and I came back from our road-trip through France and I still find myself browsing through the photos I made of our trip. This photo diary shows you our second stop, in the city of Rouen, where we encountered vikings and witch-trials, remembered Harry Potter and did…
