  • Reject cool opportunities: why?

  • Lately, I wrote about 'accepting challenges' and 'advertising vs personal'. Today I'm gonna tell you the whole other side of these stories. Because you actually need to reject some cool opportunities as well... After writing two motivated blogposts about accepting challenges as example, it's important to tell you th[...]
  • Challenges: this is why I always accept them

  • Challenges. Some are fun, others less. Yet I'm convinced to always accept them. Today I'll tell you why. I have to say, I really love challenges. They always teach me something I didn't do before. This is also the reason why lots of people don't go for them. Perhaps they're scared or something. But I think they shou[...]
  • Take it to the letterboard...

  • I've seen these letterboards so many times lately. I basically fell in love with them, so I had to purchase one by my own, haha. I'm highly sensitive for trends so yeah, you can say I'm a follower sometimes. Definitely when it's about interior. I just love to be busy making my house feeling like home. Beside, I just[...]
  • Looking for inspiration: how to?

  • Finding inspiration is perhaps more difficult than it seems, especially if you are not in your creative mood. So, today I'm going to tell you what kind of things you need to pay more attention to. Important inspiration sources are Pinterest and We Heart It. I mean, these are my two favorites. Most of the time, I jus[...]
  • Monday, I don't hate you...

  • Everywhere I look, negative things are said about Monday. But why? Because what if you can get the best out of a Monday? Think about that, hun... I myself see Monday as a new start and a new beginning. Mistakes that you made last week can be resolved in this new week and unfinished projects can be completed. Why [...]
  • What does love mean?

  • Love means something different for everybody. That's one thing that's certain. But what does it mean to me? And why? I think there are different kinds of love. The love you feel for your boy- or girlfriend. The love you feel for your family. The love you feel for your (best)friends. Etcetera, etcetera. "Whe[...]
  • Graduated: what's next?

  • Finally graduated from high school! Yay! In The Netherlands we call the education I finished: HAVO. It stands for 'Hoger Algemeen Voortgezet Onderwijs' which means 'general secondary education'. After HAVO, I'm able to study at the university (Dutchmen call it college or 'hogeschool'). After coming summer I'm go[...]
  • Morning person: this is (the new) you

  • A morning person knows many advantages. Why don't you try to become one? Let's see... If you get up early, your day is longer and you will be able to do more. In addition, in the evening you will also come to sleep a lot sooner if you get up early in the morning. Take it from me. Ok, so here are a few thi[...]
  • Organizing a picnic

  • One of the best things in the summer is to organize a picnic, isn't it? Gather a lot of tasty snacks and enjoy them in the sun. That's how we roll. When I went to picnic with my sister yesterday, we sat in the park. Where we did not have internet connection... So, this was the ultimate moment of enjoying life wi[...]
  • The meaning of wonderful gems

  • As you may have known, my interest lately has been with the spiritual. I thought of gems and wondered what is so special about it nowadays. I immediately decided to set up my glasses and crawl behind my MacBook. Let's do some research! I used to save those gems about years ago. But now I regret that I pro[...]
  • Success is what YOU believe

  • You might have heard of superstition. Honestly, I don't know if this is a positive or negative understanding, but it's all about how you think about it. Let's take 'chakra candles' as an example. There are seven different kind of chakras: Survival, Emotional Balance, Willpower, Unconditional Love, Creativity, In[...]
  • Full moon tonight

  • There's a full moon in the Netherlands tonight. For me a good time to think again about what meaning life has for me now. A full moon means that the sun is directly opposite the moon and thus he is fully illuminated. The phases after the full moon are called 'waning' because less and less of the moon will be vis[...]
