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 […]

Special Tree Decorations

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 […]

Lately I have been wanting to change things up a bit in our home regarding interior decoration. Looking for ways to make it more our home, I searched Pinterest for some ideas and came across this fun and easy DIY Dog leash holder. What you need: – A wooden board (I used a 30cm one) […]

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 […]

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 […]

MEXICOOOO! Oh how I miss it. There’s only one thing that I won’t miss, and that’s the humidity. But we had a fantastic time and here are some pictures to show you what we did on our Honeymoon… XOXO

It’s the trailer to our full wedding video, which we are eagerly awaiting… So without further ado, here it is:   Trouwfilm de "Wedding-trailer" van Annick & Niko. from David Torres on […]

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 […]

Just Married

Hi guys! I’m back again. To give you an update on our life: We just got married! The 13th of June, that is. But it feels like yesterday. We had a wonderful day surrounded by our loved ones but everything flew by so fast and before we knew it the day was over… There’s a […]

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 […]

Weekly Update

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 […]

Poland

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. […]

iMac

Well Equipped

  Hiya guys! Today’s just going to be another quick update. I’m still busy with applying for jobs and so on… But I’m also happy to say that I’ve got some new blogging equipment. Yay! Niko got me an iMac, which he bought from a friend. I will mainly use it for blogging, browsing the […]

Soups blog

Oh Rainy Day

It’s been a very rainy day, and even though I feel a bit more energetic than during the “real” wintertime, I still could use a little pick-me-up. On days like this I like to stay inside, cuddle up on the sofa with a nice cup of hot soup. What can I say, I like it […]

Weekly Update

Week 9

Hi! I’m so excited that the weather is finally changing. It’s still winter, but today felt a bit like spring was on it’s way and I love that! Last week was sort of boring up till the weekend. I spent most of my time looking for an internship and studying. But Saturday had a nice […]

Quote  blog

Failure < Determination

  I’ve been applying for jobs lately to find an internship and there is just a lot of failure involved. Somehow being rejected can cause you to feel like you’re less than others, to a degree where you ask yourself if it’s still worth all the effort. And “NO” isn’t the worst rejection you can […]

Weekly Update

Week 8

Well hello there! I know this post was supposed to be up like yesterday… And that I also missed 2 posts last week. The flu caught me by surprise again and with everything that’s been going on lately, it was just too much. Last week was just a typical winter week of getting up, going […]

Weekly Update

Week 7

It’s been 7 weeks already? Wow! I’m actually sort of proud of myself. Last week sort of passed by in a blur. I really can’t remember anything, other than the fact that I felt really really tired. Do you ever get that feeling when you get home, that you just don’t want to do anything […]

Something we all have to keep in mind sometimes: “Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being excellent.” Have a happy Sunday y’all! XOXO

Bed

A bedroom for Valentine’s

No real Valentine’s date for us! We always celebrate the Birthday of Niko’s dad on the 14th. But this year is kind of special. We only just finished painting our bedroom and last week Niko moved our bed and hung up a lamp. We stayed at my mom’s the entire week so he had enough […]

Weekly Update

Week 6

It’s been a tough week! Niko’s early shift really puts us into “zombie-mode”. What can I say, we like to stay up late… We stayed at my mom’s this week so Niko could move our bed to our new room. And I was really surprised to find that he had also bought some furniture (post […]

Sunday Ramblings

Hello guys, no your eyes aren’t deceiving you, I am posting on a Sunday. I’ve been away for 2 days and felt a bit obligated to post something to break the silence. My boyfriend decided to surprise me and bought some furniture for our bedroom. Knowing that I love to put together pieces of furniture […]

We love city trips

Today I didn’t really know what to post about. I’m still working on scheduling posts more than a week up front… So this is another Throwback Thursday post! I know I did one last week, but I really love them. I think memories are one of the most important things in life. A thing we […]

Week 5

  January is finally over, and so are the winter blues! I’m not altogether dissatisfied with January, though.         Wednesday I managed to find me some wedding shoes. I don’t have a lot of time during the week, following a course and all, but me and my mom made an appointment anyway. […]

January

January Round-up

I survived my first month of blogging. Yay! This is the longest I have ever blogged on a regular basis. So on that score it’s kind of been a great month for me. Although it didn’t all go the way I had planned it. At first I didn’t want to blog daily, but then I […]

TBT

Throwback Thursday! Today was a rather sunny day, and for a second it made me feel like summer was back. I so want it to be summer again! To see the sunshine and know it’s going to be at least pleasantly warm outside, rather than freezing cold. Earlier this week I mentioned our vacation in […]

Weekly Update

Week 4

This has kind of been an off-week for me. I haven’t posted much. Since I had the flu I haven’t gotten back into the vibe of blogging. Or of anything for that matter. It’s probably just some case of the winter blues where I don’t feel like doing anything or going outside… I’m already planning […]
