This is Halloween

Hi all! I know it’s been a while, but it has taken me longer than expected to get used to being a mommy with a fulltime job. I’m still not ok with being away from home for such a long time, but I guess that’s just the way it has to be. On a happier note, we’ve […]

For the Love of Sushi II – Sushi Shop

Last Sunday I went on another Sushi date with my best friend. I wanted to try something different so we went to the Sushi Shop in the Kammenstraat in Antwerp. On Sunday most of the shops are closed, so it was really quiet. Making a reservation was not really needed at this time (we were […]

July 2017 Recap

Hi dearest readers! Our baby boy is 8 weeks now!! He’s growing soooo much! <3 July has been a month of changing our lifestyle. With a baby on board now, changes were bound to be made. While we’ve gotten used to parenting in June, I was still looking for ways to be “me”. I love […]

Creme de la Creme

I love desserts! Which makes it hard for me to resist sweet things all the time… When we went on our Sushi date last weekend I couldn’t just go home without a sugary treat. My day wouldn’t have been complete. We wandered around in search for something new and on the corner of a small […]

For the Love of Sushi I – Zao Wang

I’m not a Sushi addict, but I do enjoy these rolls of deliciousness from time to time. During my pregnancy this was one of the foods I missed the most, so I made a deal with my best friend – a real Sushi lover – to explore Antwerp and it’s best Sushi places this Summer. Last […]

To the Birthdaydog

|| 19th of July || Happy Birthday to the fluffiest member of our little family! We have some treats in store for you today… Sadly the weather will not allow us to go for a nice long walk, that’s why we went yesterday. It’s a tradition to go walking or picknicking at Hof ter Saksen, […]

Start to Run

I have never really been confident. I’ve always had low self esteem, and since my pregnancy it’s worse than ever. That person I see in the mirror, I don’t even recognize her. For years I’ve felt sort of uncomfortable in my own skin. During my pregnancy however, I didn’t feel bad at all about gaining weight, just nervous. I […]

Good Reading

Hello my dearest readers, It’s been a month now since our little bean was born and we’re still getting used to this new way of living. Summer is finally here, and having looked forward to it so much, I’m a little bit disappointed. I’ve been feeling a bit locked up the past few weeks. The […]

Welcome Jamie

Our world just got a lot more colourful. On Monday the 5th of June we welcomed our little bundle of joy into the world. Jamie is now one week old and we couldn’t be more happy with how things have been going so far. He’s been eating and sleeping very well and doesn’t cry too […]

Pregnant

Pregnancy Leave

I have been away from blogging for a while now… In my last post on here I announced we were expecting a little one in June, and here we are! Almost half a year later, waiting for our baby boy to arrive. We haven’t really done much in the mean time. We went on a […]

Welcome 2017

Hi Everyone, I’m really happy the new year has begun. I remember telling myself last year to stop and enjoy the little moments a bit more and I managed to do that 50% of the time 😉 We’re not entirely there yet, but all in all I’m satisfied with what 2016 brought us. We haven’t […]

June/July Recap

Summer is finally here! I can’t believe it’s already been a year since we got Married! Urgh.. Time flies!We celebrated our first anniversary with a weekend getaway to Waterloo. Which was a rather last-minute idea, but we enjoyed it even more because it was unexpected. The rest of the month was spent doing the usual stuff […]

MAY

May Recap

Hi Guys! May turned out to be an even more uneventful month than April. The weather slowly turned back to being winter-like most of the time and my mood went down with it. Hence the extreme lack of posts. We celebrated Vince’s 3d birthday (Niko’s little nephew), had our annual meeting with Niko’s cousins and […]

Hallerbos02

Hallerbos

A little more than a week ago we went for a walk in the magical Hallerbos forest. Hallerbos is a forest here in Belgium, covered with bluebells during Spring. I had never heard of this place before, until I read a newspaper article about it. Apparently the forest is something a lot of foreigners come […]

DIY Dog Leash and Treat Holder

BRUGES

April Recap

Hi Guys, So as you may have noticed, April hasn’t been the most interesting month. It started off great, but then the weather turned bad again, and I got back into my winter blues. Our weekend in Bruges was definitely the highlight of this month, and does make up for the rest of it. I did […]

Bruges05

Bewitched by Bruges

Even though Belgium isn’t a large country, I had never been to Bruges until last weekend. I had carefully planned our walk through the city, to not miss some of it’s beautiful spots. First off, let me start by saying that we didn’t DO anything on this first trip. We just went on a long […]

The Juicy Shaker

I’m not really the fashion and beauty blogging type, but I simply had to share this with you guys. I don’t wear a lot of make-up and usually keep things simple. Just a bit of eyeliner here, some mascara there and some lipgloss or lipstick (when I’m feeling bolder…). A few days ago I started […]

Life Update

Hi guys! I’m attempting to pick up blogging again. So far I was really proud of myself for sticking to it for more than a month, but now it’s time to fully commit myself to it. There will be some changes (as you might have noticed in the menu above), because my life has changed […]

Chichen Itza  Blog

Chichén Itzá

Chichen Itza’s El Castillo is one of the new seven wonders of the world, and I’m very happy to be able to check it off my list. It was my second time, and by far the best because I can actually remember it now. The only thing I remember from our first visit is that we could still […]

Chicken Enchiladas

It serves 4 people. Ingredients: 450 g boiled chicken, cut into thin slices Salsa Roja (Red Salsa 400ml) 260 g […]

Back to Work

So I’m halfway my second week back to work. And I have to tell you, I’m still getting used to it. There’s just something about suddenly having all that free time snatched away from you that leaves you sort of empty inside. I was really nervous to get back to work. I started working there […]

New life

So just to give you guys a quick update as to why I haven’t been blogging for so long… In short: I found myself a job. I’m away from home 10 hours a day.. Add getting dinner ready, eating and the occasional trip to the gym and you’ll find there’s not much time left to […]

Broken things

Yesterday I had some pretty bad luck. I’m kind of jumpy when it comes to my phone these days seeing as any moment someone could call me for a job interview. So yesterday my phone rang when I was on my way. Trying to find my phone and picking it up as soon as possible […]

Week 10

It’s been 10 weeks since I first started blogging. I haven’t always been very consistent, and I still haven’t found the right frequency to post in, but I’m super proud of the fact that I’m still holding on. After another week of job interviews and studying we once again had a fun weekend. This time […]

Mug Cakes

I absolutely love mug cakes. They’re easy to make and don’t take up too much of your time, so they’re perfect for later on in the evening as a dessert. I made 2 different mug cakes but went a little bit berserk with the decorating so they may not look as yummy as they are. […]

Poland

It’s Throwback Thursday! And I’m taking a look back at the first time I went to Poland with Niko in 2012. We’ve changed so much… I can’t believe how long my hair was back then 😮 Anyway, my grandparents live in Poland and I’ve been visiting every year in summer ever since I was born. […]
