19 days to go

As our wedding day is fastly approaching, I'm starting to realize how short a 7-month engagement really is! Thankfully, all guests have let us know on time whether or not they will attend the wedding, so that's a huge relief. Planning is almost done, but I'm sure the last few days before the wedding will be very hectic!

I have my last dress fitting coming up this weekend, and Marlon's tux will be ready next week. I'm so excited to wear my dress again after not seeing it for a few months, and to be honest I also can't wait to share pictures on here after the wedding, haha. Wedding planning has been a little stressful due to our short time frame, but I'm sure it will all be worth it as soon as we're pronounced husband and wife.



Anyway, why is it tradition that the groom doesn't see the bride's dress until she walks down the aisle, but it's fine for her to see his suit/tux long before the wedding? 👰🏼🤵🏻

Fun day at the zoo

Yesterday, Marlon and I thought it might be nice to go to the zoo. My summer holiday will be over next week, so I really wanted to do something fun before going back to work. We went to Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam last time, so we decided to go to Burgers Zoo in Arnhem just to change things up! Even though it was crazy crowded for a Thursday, we still had a really fun day, and managed to see quite a lot of animals!

Please don't mind my frizzy hair, it's really humid in that "rainforest", okay? 🤗


And of course I had to squeeze in a little outfit post! Because I knew we would be walking all day, I definitely went for comfort over fashion. I'm wearing a very simple Hunkemöller top, plaid Primark trousers, and my Converse All Star sneakers. My sunglasses are from Loavies (amazing Céline dupe for only €10!), and my bag is my beloved Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis.


What is your favourite animal?

Relaxing day at the sauna

Hey there!

This weekend has been extremely relaxing. Last Friday, my fiancé Marlon and I went to Thermen Bussloo, a beautiful wellness centre set at the edge of a lake here in the Netherlands. There are many different types of saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, pools, and restaurants available, so the day really flew by. We swam, ate lunch, tried out different saunas, took a nap, ate some more, and just relaxed.



To be honest I was looking forward to reading a book in the sun outside and going home without any tan lines, but unfortunately it was pretty cloudy and we didn't get much sun all day. We still had a lovely time though, so I really shouldn't complain. The temperature was nice enough to still walk around outside, and when some occasional rain fell, we were nice and warm inside the sauna or restaurant.


My favourite pool was the salt water cave. Since you float better in salt water compared to fresh water, it's very easy to just lay down and float around. You could listen to calming "aquasound" music by keeping your ears under water which I found very soothing, so I highly recommend checking out the salt water cave if you ever visit!

New blog design

Hi you!

I don't know about you, but the month of August always makes me want to make some changes in my life. Sometimes I decide to change my hair, my wardrobe, or even my home decor, but this year I decided to change the way my blog looks! To be honest it's been way too long since I've made any changes to my design, and I hope you like how it turned out.

It's a lot more black & white than what I had before - and to be honest I quite like the simplicity of it all.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts and/or ideas!

Eurovision 2019

Hi there!

I've written about Eurovision for a couple of years now, so I guess you could say it's slowly becoming a tradition. And contrary to what some people believe, I love traditions! So without further ado, here are my favourite songs this year:

The Netherlands

Spain

Italy

Will you be watching the Eurovision final next Saturday night? What are your favourite songs this year?

True



If you're from a European country like me, do you recognize any of these situations? I can really relate to some of these haha, especially the one about Eurovision, or buying certain items across the border because they are cheaper there. But I've also definitely driven through Germany to avoid traffic in France and Belgium, which is probably pretty weird to people from other parts of the world.

Sun-day

Hello you! I hope you're doing well on this lovely Sunday.

This afternoon I went to the tanning salon because it's been a while. I like to go at least once every one or two weeks during the winter/early spring to relax, but the last time I went was almost a month ago. And since I've been very lazy with the self tanner (oops), off to the salon I went!

I would be lying if I said I only went to tan. To be honest my acne has been flaring up again lately, and I've been very self-conscious about it. I really don't like looking in the mirror and not feel happy about my skin. The tanning bed always seems to help clear up my face a bit for some reason, and it made me wonder if any of you ever tried sunlight/UV against acne?

I said yes!

Hi there!

Remember when I told you about my new boyfriend? An entire year has passed since we started dating, and on our one year anniversary we went to the Efteling theme park to celebrate. Little did I know, that he had an amazing, life changing surprise for me. At Rapunzel's tower in the fairytale forest, he got down on one knee and proposed! Of course I said yes: I know that he's the perfect man for me. He makes me so incredibly happy and always makes me feel so special and loved, so yes, definitely yes!

Being engaged feels so wonderful, and I really can't wait to start planning our wedding, but to be honest I'm way more excited for our marriage: our life together after the wedding.
