Day 12!

Hi guys!

Today’s subject: “what’s in your fridge?”

We have organised our fridge based on the amount of shelves we have in there. On the top shelf we keep our meats and cheese to put on bread. The second shelf holds the yoghurts and my healthy “Nutella” -alternative. The one under that has our vegetables, right now we have peppers, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber. At the bottom we have our drinks.We have water (flat and fizzy), soda’s like coke zero and Canada Dry. Besides the non-alcoholic beverages we also have our beers. After all I’m a true Belgian girl! The ones I currently loooove are Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel and Brugse Zot. In the door we keep our larger bottles of water and soda and of course our sauces like ketchup, mayonaise, mustard,… The last 2 things in my fridge are eggs and some care-products we have to keep in the fridge so nothing that interesting haha.

Thankfully we also have a freezer full of deliciousness like pizza, ice cream, leftovers,… All the really really good stuff :).

Day 10!

Hi guys!

Day 10 is all about the best physical feature. This one is going to be pretty difficult to write about. But I’m going to try my best and tell you how I got to where I am now.

I have always been pretty insecure about how I looked. Especially because even when I was younger, I was always ‘the bigger girl’. I played sports and I didn’t like candy and other sweets. But of course no one wanted to believe me. I will admit I did overeat, I just love food! But I always had a feeling that wasn’t all that was going on. And a few years ago I found out I was right all along. I have chronic lymphedema. It’s a syndrome that means my lymphatics don’t work. It makes my body swell up sometimes and so I have to wear pressure stockings. They kinda look like this:

They kinda hurt and it’s not fun to have to wear them all the time. Also, putting them on is not that easy. But I have learned to live with them so now I don’t mind them as much. It does have it’s toll on your positive body image. I have recently started to see the benefits of them as well. I don’t have to shave my legs if I don’t feel like it. #chewbaccalegs And they have those stockings in all kinds of different colours so I can put on the ones that goes best with my outfit of the day.

Today there are a few things I love about my body, one is my dimple. Yes, singular. I only have one in one of my cheeks. I think it’s a really cute, unique thing about me. And of course, I’m really proud of my butt. I know, most girls probably have this complex about theirs but I love mine.

What would you guys say is your best feature? Let me know in the comments!

Day 9!

Hi guys!

Today I’m going to talk about my worst habits. Oh boy, this is going to be fun haha.

When I was a little girl, I used to bite my nails. But as I got older I really enjoyed putting nailpolish on. So that made me quit. Unfortunately I still pull little pieces of skin from around my nails. I don’t know why because it can really hurt like hell. I usually do it when I’m really stressed, so around exams and stuff. I try to find some other ways to channel my stress like dancing to loud music, sing along with my favorite songs. Even though I can’t sing at all! And I don’t mean it in a humble ‘actually-I-can-sing-but-I-don’t-want-to-brag” kinda way, I’m super serious. I can’t sing at all. But that doesn’t stop me from singing along to all my favorite songs. Although I only do it when I’m home alone, that way no one has to suffer haha.

Another bad habit of mine is that I have a terrible morning mood. When I wake up, you have to give my like at least a half an hour to wake up properly. Sometimes even a little longer than that. But after, I’m fine and you can talk to me about anything. If you start nagging to me the second I wake up, there is a good chance we will end up in an argument. #sorrynotsorry

What are some of your worst habits?

Day 8!

Hi guys!

I wanted to tell you guys about the thing that’s at the top of my bucket list.

There are soooo many things on my bucket list, I didn’t know which one to pick. I decided to choose the one I mentioned the most in my little notebook. Yes, I keep a notebook with all of the things I want to do in life. I take it everywhere with me just in case I see something I want to do later on. And the thing I write about the most is traveling.

I’m a big fan of roadtrips. I especially want to go to the USA and do the whole route 66 thing. My cousin went to Canada on a roadtrip and the pictures were completely amazing! So of course, now I want to go to Canada! And finally I want to travel across Europe, countries like Poland, Croatia, France, Spain, Austria, Italy,…

I always thought I would do this with my best friends, but I wouldn’t mind doing one for like a holiday with my future boyfriend or even for a honeymoon or something. Even though I said I would never marry, who knows. Maybe if I find the right guy, I will get married.

If you have any suggestions for roadtrips, let me know!

Day 7!

Hi guys!

Today’s subject is what does your pet hate!

I have this really cute cat named Bilbo. We have had him for almost 13 years. And no, I didn’t name him after the character from Lord Of The Rings. I actually named him after a supercool music store in Ghent. Sleeping, eating and going outside to do God knows what, pretty much sums up his life. I mean he probably goes to the bathroom outside but with that cat, you just never know.

I’m not really annoying him now that I’m a little older but when I was a kid, I did some weird things with him. I saw him as my baby so I would dress him up, hold him like a baby. I would even put a blanket around him and put him in a crib to make it even more real! He really didn’t like that but still he let me do it. When he had one of his moments he would even attack my mom, who did absolutely nothing bad to him. He would never attack me, still to this day he doesn’t attack me. I’ve trained him well, if I do say so myself.

Day 6!

Hi guys!

Today is about my 5 senses right now. I have been a little behind but I’m trying to catch up!

SIGHT: I’m sitting outside as I’m writing this post. I’m at my friends house and we made some sangria. The view is really nice actually, he has an amazing garden with a little pond and some trees. You can really relax.

HEARING: He lives close to a trainstation so we can hear the occasional train coming by. As the weather is amazing, it’s about 30°C, so the birds are singing a lot. We can also here the neighbour’s kids playing in the garden. After a while we put on some music. We were in the old school hiphop/rap mood.

TASTE: As I said, I’m drinking sangria so that’s the taste in my mouth right now. We also put in a lot of fresh fruits like apples, watermelon, strawberries, peaches, bananas,…

SMELL: I can smell the fruit and sangria of course. In the garden are a lot of lavender plants and I definitely smell that. Me and my friend are both wearing perfume so we obviously smell that!

TOUCH: I’m sitting in a very comfortable wicker chair. Although the outlining is already visible on my legs haha but I don’t mind. I’m also holding my drink so I’m touching a cold glass.

Day 5!

Hi guys!

Today I’m going to share my top 10 favorite songs of this moment. My friends and family know how much I love music and how hard it is to pick a favorite song. SO this list is my favorites songs today, it might be completely different tomorrow or even in an hour. (I’m not even kidding!!)

  • I’m seriously obsessed with Trisha Paytas’ new album ‘Daddy Issues’. I follow her on YouTube for quite a while now and recently bought her latest album. I love the entire album, not just because she made a song about my all time favorite director Quentin Tarantino, but because her songs are sooo original! One of my favorite songs from the album is ‘Big Belly Goddess’. If you guys haven’t bought the album yet, be sure to do so. You won’t regret it, I promise. #fishyforlife

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/daddy-issues-ep/id1119704993

  • One of my all time favorite songs is ‘Anything Anything’ by Dramarama. I knew about this song for a while. I listen to a lot of old school rock and music from like the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s,… But I kind of forgot about it until I saw the movie ‘Two night stand’, which you guys should check out. After I heard it again in the movie, I fell in love with it all over again! So it has to be in this list.
  • This next song is from the soundtrack of one of my favorite series of all times, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. If you have seen the show, you’ll know it because it’s the title track. It’s ‘You’ve got time’ by Regina Spektor. I love her voice, another song you should definitely check out is ‘Firewood’.
  • I also love instumental songs, especially from like movies or series and the next 2 songs on my list prove it haha. The first one is from an amazing movie called ‘Amélie’ it’s a French movie but absolutely beautiful. It’s kind of quirky, which is probably why I love it so much! If you know how to play the piano, you could try and play it yourself!
  • The next one is also instrumental and from the soundtrack of one of my favorite Jane Austen adaptation’s ever: Pride and Prejudice. It’s called ‘Georgiana’.
  • The next on is a bit different from the previous songs on the list. It’s ‘Only’ by Nicki Minaj ft. Drake, Lil’ Wayne and Chris Brown. I saw her in concert at the beginning of this year and she was absolutely slayin’ it!!! She was da bomb, I loved watching her perform. She even created an intimite vibe when she sang songs like ‘Grand Piano’. Which is not easy in such a big venue. I love rap music, I’ve been a fan of Eminem since as long as I can remember, and seeing a strong woman in this music genre is amazing!
  • One of my all time favorite bands is Coldplay. I have seen them live several times and they’re amazing every single time. So I couldn’t make this blog without picking one of their songs to put on my list. It’s really hard because I love them all. But it had to be done. I decided to choose on of their older songs. I’ve been listening to it ever since it came out and I don’t get tired of it whatsoever. Btw absolutely love this video!
  • The next one is a collab between Ed Sheeran, whom I adore (too bad he has been of social media for a long time) and Passenger. The do a mash-up of ‘No Diggity’ and ‘Thrift Shop’ and it’s sooooooo good!
  • I’m a huge fan of the British band Elbow. Ever since I saw them on Rock Werchter, I’ve been listening to their albums a lot. The one song sticking out for me is ‘Lippy Kids’. This song is usually playing at night, when I’m laying in bed reading.
  • The last song on this list is one of my absolute all time favorites. It’s so beautiful, I love Gavin James’ voice so much. Ugh I can’t tell you how much I love this song. So just enjoy!

 

Hope you enjoyed my list! Let me know what your favorite songs are and I’ll check them out!

Day 4!

Hi guys,

Today is day 4 of the 31-day blogging challenge. And it’s also the 4th of July, so happy 4th of July to all my American friends out there! Can’t wait to go to the US around this time and take in the true 4th of July vibes!

Anyways, today I’m going to talk about what I’m afraid of.This is not really going to be a fun post but it’s a part of the challenge so let’s do this.

I didn’t really have to think about this one. Lately we’ve been having pretty bad weather in Belgium. A lot of storms and rain,… When I was younger, I wasn’t afraid of thunder and lightning. But a few years ago, I was at Pukkelpop festival in Hasselt with my best friend when the weather turned really bad. We were watching Wiz Khalifa play when the boxes started to swing. We went out to see what was going on and we saw that the sky was turning green. I’ve never seen anything like it. The thunder and lightning were really terrifying actually. We ran to another tent near the exit so we could go inside because the hail balls were so big, it left red marks all over our backs. It had been around 30 degrees Celcius all day so people didn’t have that many clothes on to protect them. We were standing there for a few minutes when all of a sudden, I got pushed out. As I fell on the ground, I noticed a beam from the tent falling on the ground. The tent collapsed. If it wasn’t for that guy who pushed me out, I could have gotten hurt really bad or I could have died. I’m very lucky to have had that person, who didn’t knew me, looking out for me and basically saving my life. There were a few who did die on that day. All because of a stupid storm.

Ever since that day, I haven’t been the biggest fan of storms, thunder and lightning. So if I had to pick the thing I’m most afraid of, that would be it.

Thankfully I made it out okay and I’m able to do what I’m doing because of the guy who saved me. I still get anxiety whenever a storm hits but I learned to manage it.

What are you guys most afraid of? Let me know in the comments below!
