When someone mentions body image what is the first thought that pops into your mind? Is this expression connected to negative or positive feelings? Often it’s both. Most people will agree that the relationship with yourself is the most important one and that self-love is the key to happiness. However, gaining self-confidence might also be one of the most difficult challenges we face in life. We are easily influenced by those around us and with the different beauty standards that are promoted through (social) media self-doubt becomes almost inevitable. I am sure that most of us experience issues with their… View Post

Have you ever gone on a journey alone? The thought of solo-travelling might seem scary at first, at least if you haven’t tried it before. Most people will travel with their friends, partner or family, but packing a suitcase and going on an adventure alone would never cross their mind. I have already travelled alone twice, although the first journey was fairly short. My second journey was along the West Coast of California and the three weeks I spent travelling were definitely the best of my life. When I’m looking back at these adventures I can assure you that I wouldn’t… View Post

To many of us going out doesn’t simply mean putting on a pair of trousers and leaving the house. No, instead we spend hours doing our hair, makeup and choosing our outfit. We just can’t seem to find the perfect accessories, the perfect clutch and let’s not even start talking about the perfect eyeliner wing or the perfect lip colour. Although it can get stressful, I still love getting ready for a night out and usually turn it into a bit of a pamper session as well. But what if we don’t have the time to get ready? Oh, the… View Post

As I’m typing this post I’m heading to Narbonne, a lovely city in the south of France. Can we all take a moment and appreciate buses with free wifi? My morning was rather stressful, I had to take a train to Bordeaux and I arrived at Dax train station to find out it had been cancelled. Great.  Luckily I was able to take another train but my plans to have breakfast in Bordeaux obviously had to get cancelled along with the train. At least my workout for the day is complete because yes, running towards the bus station with a… View Post

Narrow streets, colourful houses and a gorgeous cathedral in the centre – if you have ever visited the south west of France, you know immediately which city I am talking about: Bayonne. A while ago I visited this beautiful place for a day and maybe, just maybe you can remember my Instagram picture of all the colourful houses or my tweets that I’m officially in blogger’s paradise. Which was definitely true – after walking through heavy rain I finally found a little café with shortbread, cupcakes, white tea and the best wifi in the world. If you’re a blogger I… View Post

It is Mother’s Day on Sunday which means it’s time to properly spoil our mothers and thank them for everything they have done for us. Which is a lot. I am incredible thankful to have a really supportive mum who is always on my side and who I can constantly rely on. I wouldn’t know what do without her and even though I am currently travelling I have planned a little something for her and I very much hope that she’ll like it. I love getting creative for Mother’s Day and if you are in need of some inspiration then… View Post

Travelling opens the door to a whole new world. It changes your perspective of life and once you’ve caught the travel bug there is no going back. Your heart will forever ache to see new places and wanderlust will be a constant companion. We live in an amazing world and there are so many places to explore, so many cultures to get to know and so many mountains to be climbed. I have heard people say that the world is a book and that those who don’t travel only read the first page. However I would rather read only one… View Post

Recently I have seen many posts floating around the internet all tackling one particular subject: what blogging has taught the blogger. If you are dedicated to blogging it surely has changed your life in some way. Blogging is a passion, a great hobby and definitely a challenge as well. And with a challenge usually comes a process of learning so it’s actually inevitable to be a blogger without learning a thing or two on the journey. I think most would agree the blogging has taught us how to be patient, has probably improved our style of writing and has maybe… View Post

If someone asked me to describe my fashion taste and how I dress, I would simply answer that this isn’t something I could ever put into a few words. Just like the weather (especially European weather, cough) my style constantly changes. As a person who is really passionate about self-expression through clothing I don’t limit myself to one specific style. Instead I dress differently every day, depending on my mood and what I’m feeling like. To me, fashion provides an incredible opportunity: the opportunity to invent yourself again every single day. I sometimes go through times of combining crazy patterns… View Post

  Since my arrival in France one particular city hasn’t left my mind: Bordeaux. I originally planned on visiting last weekend but after looking at the weather forecast I decided that postponing it for a week might be a good idea. So this Saturday, I finally did it. I got up early, walked to the train station and hopped on the next train to the city of wine. Arriving at Bordeaux St Jean train station I noticed some dark clouds looming over the city (so much about avoid bad weather by postponing the trip!) and decided I’d better get to… View Post
