Ahh, what a weekend! It was so nice, after working for two weeks straight to have two days all to ourselves. Me and my boyfriend, who also took these pictures and most of my pictures really, spent the weekend just relaxing and doing things that make us happy! We started by getting up early on Saturday to join 'power hour' at Striktly Powerhouse, our gym in Haarlem. We really didn't wanna get up early but it felt soo good afterwards. After that, we did some grocery shopping and went to my parents to have diner. I made my favorite vegan spring rolls and everyone just seems to love them so much! Especially my spicy peanut sauce seems to be a big hit! Today, as you can see, the sun was out all day!! Ugh, it was just so nice to feel the warm glow on my skin, stroll around Haarlem and smelling spring in the air. Can anyone else just smell that spring is just around the corner? much love babes! Hope you had a good weekend too <3

The pictures pretty much speaks for themselves, I mean.. how cute does this all look?! I just wanted to try on everything and All the fabrics and colors looked so amazing. I love how this store is styled and organized, I wish I was more organized and had a closet looking like this ;) today I jut browsed around town, drank some coffee in one of my favorite shops and had diner with Maarten at my parents house. They live very close to us but with everyone’s busy schedule it’s hard to make time sometimes! I really miss living at home. Just the comfort of us all being together, but thats why I love our get togethers even more! What have you been up to? Much love ladies! This one is off to sleep xxx

I thought winter was pretty much over since the sun has been shining and temperatures were rising, but I guess Mother Nature just couldn’t help but surprise us again with snow! What a long week it’s been. Delivered about 30-40 pages of content for our customers, worked last weekend which is catching up on me now and tomorrow morning, bright and early I’ll be going to the gym to work with the most awesome trainer on the planet. I know it’s gonna be a tough training but I’ll be happy once it’s over! If it were easy, everybody would be doing it right?! Other than that, i'll be doing absolutely nothing! Time to rest and recharge cause I have a very special appointment on monday... something that has to do with mindfulness, spirituality and making dreams come true! Have a wonderful weekend babes!

About two weeks ago I went to one of my favorite stores in the city; the second hand shop. I love browsing around for treasures and I promise you, even though most stores look so messy, there are treasures waiting to be found! As I was going through everything I walked passed a display and in it they displayed a really old camera. Not a digital one, but a 35MM SLR ( single lens reflex) camera. I quickly googled it cause I didn't know the brand and I was wondering what a camera like that would cost if I bought it elsewhere. I soon found lot's of advertisements pricing it at 50-60 euro and in the second hand store they asked 17, which I thought would be a pretty good deal. I wasn't sure if it stil worked or if there was something wrong with it so I asked the lady and she said; I don't have a clue, but you know what, 10 euro's and it's yours, cause it's been collecting dust for ages in the shop and no one wants it. At that point I knew I had to get it, like it was a sign, and I couldn't wait to start taking pictures with it which I've been doing daily. I can't show you the results just yet, cause it has to get developed, but there is just something so amazing about not knowing the outcome until I get it back. I carry it in my bag daily so when I see something that would look amazing I can take a picture. I'm halfway through the film, but I just love it so much. Just the entire experience of manually zooming in and out, putting the film roll inside and the sound it makes. I can tell you, it's a lot more fun than a digital camera! haha. As soon as I get everything developed I'll show you what the pictures turned oud like. Can't wait!

So I realized I've never really properly introduced my boyfriend you you.. well his name is Maarten, we met 3 years ago when we we're working together, bought a house after 8 months of knowing each other and we've been together ever since. He also takes pretty much all of my pictures lately.. and I never thought I would say this, but he really is everything and more.... We're so alike, and I feel so comfortable with him and he just makes me laugh every single day, which I Think is so attractive.. Before we met I got out of an really bad relationship, thinking about it, this sounds like I had a lot of boyfriends which I didn't, but I was ready to spent my life alone, cause I never wanted to go through such craziness again. There is nothing worse than spending you're life with someone that doesn't love you back. But anyway, four months after ending the worst relationship of my life, Maarten walked into my life and i remember being so skeptic. I didn't wanna believe he was really that nice, cute, charming and loving toward me, but I guess love won. As it always does ;) So today, when I came home, he decorated the bed with rose scented roses with and a little present. The little coffee cup means more to me than you could ever imagine... I always drink coffee in the morning and as i opened the present he said; this way you can always have coffee with me even though I leave for work before you do... I seriously almost cried haha. such a soft ball! Anyway, did you do something for valentine? or do you think its just a bug hype every year? Talk soon babes!

So I was gonna write this way earlier today, but i've only just finished work and it was such an amazing day. As I told you yesterday I'm a writer and I write content for the websites that the boys at our office create and maintain. They do the technical part and I do the fun stuff ;) I'm writing about spirituality and it's just something that's so close to my heart. I've been into spirituality and practising it for a very long time now and I've put a lot of time in reading about it. The women for whom we're creating the website came by at the office today and I had never met them. You could just tell as soon as they walked through the door, the room was filled with such a fun and playful energy and we had an incredible conversation about all the things they do to help people with any sort of issue they have. To make a long story short, instead of feeling run down and tired at the end of the day I left the office inspired, energetic and a flow of creativity just keeps running through my fingers. I can't sit still! The best part was when she offered me session at her studio to see what she could help me with and of course I'm gonna go! Would be silly not to right?! I love learning new things and mastering new skills that have to do with the mind so i'm so curious to see what's gonna happen at the session. I will for sure update!! For now, this tired pile of human is going to close her eyes and rest. Brain is going a 100 miles an hour so it's time to get some rest! Tomorrow is valentines day, but even more important, tomorrow it's my mommy's birthday!

Sleep well babes! Talk soon!

Hey babes! First of all, I hope you had a great day! As you know I was working all weekend and I had to get back to my actual job today as well. I'm seriously so tired right now, but I made a promise to blog for 30 days straight and I always keep my promises! I'm a content writer at an online marketing company in Amsterdam and right now i'm working on the most amazing thing, or at least, I think it's pretty cool ;) I'm currently writing an entire website about spirituality and how to make it work for you or how you can use it. I've been into spirituality for a long time so to get creative and write this companies website is just so cool. I know a lot about it, and it couldn't have come at a better time. It's easy to lose touch with you're intuition especially when things get really busy! I love it how the universe presents you with exactly what you need right ;) I'm learning so much just by doing the research and it inspired me to start listening to one of my favorite guided meditations. It's so lovely to fall asleep to and this poem, well... I'll just let it speak for itself.

Ps, if you're curious about the meditation I do you can find it HERE on spotify.

Keep an open mind and do this while you're alone with you're headphones in. I used to listen to it every day and from now, since I can stress way to much, i'll be doing it daily again so we can kinda do it together if you wanna join me ;)

Much love and sleep well xxx

Guys oh my! What a weekend! Been working since monday so I worked for 7 days straight now! I'm so tired right now and all I wanna do is take a shower and go to bed. Ugh, so sweet, when I got home I noticed all the candles were lit and my boyfriend got me my favorite diner (vegan rice paper rolls and vegetable chips, so yummy!) and it was just the cutest thing. He made a little fire for us outside and set the entire table with my favorite things. Isn't it those moments that count the most?! I mean, yes it's nice to make money and all that, but moments like that just make you feel so special and so loved and no money can ever buy that! Now I'm gonna take a well deserved long hot shower and rest my head on my pillow and fall asleep! Luckily I work from home tomorrow so I don't have to get up crazy early and I can just work in my pyjama's all day heheh. Hope you had a great weekend as well! Did anyone else work this weekend?
