New In: Pity Shopping part 2

Are you ready for the second part of my "Pity Shopping" spree?
Ready or not, here it is anyway hahaha!
You can really tell the difference between this part and the previous one.
In the first part most of the items I bought were from Primark and
The reason why, is mostly because Primark is close to my house and I don't even have to leave the house to order something at!
But lately I've been feeling a lot better, in fact I have fully recovered from my surgery!
Since I was feeling better, I was able to go shopping in Amsterdam with my mum.
It was so much fun to do something I used to love so much!
You have no idea how excited I am to start living my live again like I used to.
I bet you'll see me in these new items very soon!

Lots Of Love,

Look Of The Day: Finally Summer!

We have been waiting since the end of March for summer to arrive!
Finally the weather is actually summer worthy!
Seems like waiting really gets rewarded after all.
I decided to wear this dress to dinner with my mum.
This dress stole my heart! It's perfect for every season!
Maybe not every season, it's a bit too cold for during winter I guess...
Anyway I finally got to wear it without tights! 
Summer does has its disadvantages though..
Since last year I've got to deal with hay fever every summer.
Even though it's a complete pain in the a**, I'm going take it for granted!
My love for summer is still going strong!

Lots Of Love,

Recipe - Quinoa and vegetables

A while ago I made quinoa for the first time,
 I thought it would be fun to share my experience with you!
For those of you who don't know what quinoa is, have a look here.
This recipe is actually very easy and (surprisingly) super delicious!

Getting ready!
First of all I would love to let you know that we've reached over 16k views!!
I am honestly so happy but also very surprised.
Taking in mind that I haven't been on the blog for over a month,
it's a real achievement that we still got so many views!
Thank you all so much!! 

Alright, let's get to the point.
Two weeks ago I graduated high school, which was very weird actually.
Somehow I still don't realise that I don't have to go back there..
Being able to actually hold my diploma feels like a dream come true!
I've worked very hard to get to this point,
unfortunately I wasn't able to fully enjoy everything because of what happened to me.
Anyway, I'd love to share my unforgettable evening with you.
Hopefully college will be much more fun than high school!
I'm really excited, but also a bit nervous to start...
Let's hope for the best!

Lots Of Love,

PS: sorry for the bad quality of the pictures

New In: Pity Shopping part 1

Here's the first part of my pity shopping!
I have decided to separate these shopping sprees because it's so much!
These items are actually quite old..
I bought them before my final exams, which is a while ago!
Unlike me, I still didn't wear most of these items!
Normally I wear everything I buy as soon as I have the chance.
I just think it's such a waste to 'save' whatever you bought for later.
Somehow I always tend to forget what I bought.
By the time I think of wearing the 'new' clothes, 
they don't fit me anymore or I just don't like them any longer.
Hopefully I get to wear these items soon! 
Stay tuned for part 2!

Lots Of Love,

Bad Luck

It has been quite a while since I posted something on the blog.
So much has happened the past few weeks.
I don't know where to start!
There's only one way to describe what has happened to me; bad luck.

So here's what happened...
As you know I was graduating high school, the final exams were about to begin.
Everything was under control, I was prepared and confident enough to take the exams.
All of a sudden I had this annoying pain by my tailbone.
I thought it was nothing too serious, 
so I decided to go to the Amsterdam Fashion Institute for my intake anyway.

What a horrible day!
I'm not going to discuss the details here,
 but I can tell you that the AMFI is not the place for me.
Somehow the people gave me the feeling that I was a complete idiot, 
while I was explaining what fashion means to me. 
I am not changing my opinion for anyone or anything.
It was my biggest dream to go to the AMFI but it just didn't feel right.

That's why I applied for European Studies.

It took me quite a while, and many tears, 
to realise that this is a much better 'road' for me.
European Studies is such a broad education, 
following this study instead of going to AMFI,
makes it easier for me to reach my goals.

'Everything happens for a reason' really helped me to accept what has happened to me.
Because while I was disappointed about the intake,
I got ill and needed surgery asap.
This might sound -look- worse than it actually was.
Thank God, I wasn't in a life or death condition. 

As if I wasn't going through enough already,
all of this happened during my final exams. 
Yes, that was probably the worst part.
I missed two exams, but luckily I could still take them a few weeks later.
Whoever might say that this is the best period of your life,
you are so wrong!!
Unforgettable, yes. But by far (hopefully) not the best period of my life.

Don't worry though, because of my hard work and my talents I managed to graduate anyway!
I probably shouldn't be joking right now ;p 
Seriously, being able to say that I've got my diploma is such a good feeling,
especially after all I had to deal with the last few weeks.

Right now I'm still recovering from surgery.
Hopefully I'll be a 100% better very soon.
I've got loads of 'New In' posts coming up (all from pity shopping sprees)

My motto really has become 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger'.
I've overcome so many fears, I really surprised myself.
For example; I was terrified by hospitals and surgeries.
Now I have to go to the hospital every two wees until I'm fully recovered.
Not to mention that I had surgery twice!!! 
(The first time wasn't sufficient) 

My life literally felt like a rollercoaster.
I've learned not to take anything for granted anymore,
everyday that you are able to wake up healthy is truly a blessing. 

Hopefully you're not too upset with me not posting...
I also hope that you are informed now on what happened to me.
Excitement is an understatement to describe what I feel to be posting again!
Hopefully you are just as excited as I am!

Lots Of Love,


Me and my diploma, my story has a happy end after all...
(Take that 'bad luck'!)
