• Let Loose

    Since starting my new job I’ve donated two garbage bags full of clothes and got rid of four pairs of worn out shoes. It’s fair to say that I was holding on to pieces of clothing that didn’t really fit me right anymore or that I had gotten tired of just for the sake of having something to wear. With no income for almost a year, my shopping sprees were limited and I only really bought things I really needed like new warm sweater in…

    AD | My Skechers Performance Go Step Sneakers

    In my post about the Skechers store opening in Wijnegem I gave away that I didn’t leave the shop empty handed. It took me a while, but I finally found a moment to shoot my favorite outfit with my new Skechers Go Step sneakers! My sneakers are a lovely beige-white print on a lightweight mesh fabric, making them perfect for the warmer times ahead. I can wear them under dresses and skirts and add a cool-factor to my looks, without having sweaty feet …

    A New Chapter

    A New Chapter

    This blog and its readers have been with me through many life changes. No less than 6 anniversaries with my boyfriend have been celebrated on The Ginger Diaries and our seventh is in just a few days. I’ve written about when we moved into our first apartment last July and recently shared an update on how things looked after nine months. My academic career has been well documented with posts about graduating high school, my first day in college, starting and ending my internships, …

    Simple Homemade Iced Latte Recipe

    Simple Homemade Iced Latte Recipe

    Iced coffees were my main source of cash outflow during my summer semesters at uni. No, I don’t even think that’s a serious exaggeration (wow, I spelled that word right from the first try!), just ask my friends! Now that I have graduated and moved back to the country side, the closest decent iced latte I can find is a half hour drive away. Add to that the fact that a parking ticket in the city is more expensive than the …

    A Day In Domburg

    A Day In Domburg

    When my parents bought a caravan in The Netherlands two years ago I started a small blog series about the Zeeland region. After Middelburg, Yerseke and Veere it was time to explore Domburg this weekend. The weather had been really nice up until the day my mom, youngest sister and I left for our short getaway. No clouds or wind could stop us – something about pancakes for lunch – and we went for a walk around town and on the beach anyway. I left&…

    Under The Blooming Trees

    Among the bluebells, under the blooming trees, … . It should be clear by now that I am not the most creative blogger when it comes to my post titles. I do however believe that my locations have been rather on point lately, haha. I’ve been wearing lots of soft grey this Spring and am pulling out my black blazer – that I have a love-hate relationship with – on most days too. My new New Balance sneakers are the pride of my feet, …

    AD | Fitflop F-Pop Leather Oxford Shoes

    A while ago I was introduced to the lovely PR team from FitFlop Benelux during an speed dating event for bloggers. If you don’t know what FitFlop is then you must have been living under a rock for the past decade. Launched in 2006, the brand has been known for ergonomic and ultra-comfortable designs that support your feet fully. My mother-in-law is a mega-fan and even my boyfriend owns a pair of their magical slides, but I must be honest and admit that the …

    AD| Mylène PureSkin Review

    New in my beauty cabinet: bits of the Mylène PureSkin line. Wait… beauty talk? Yes, beauty talk. Everyone probably remembers how I exclaimed I’d never become a beauty blogger, but since many of my blogging friends write about make-up, skincare, hair care and nail art I got sucked into the new-to-me world of beauty anyway. With the amount of beauty-related blog events I attended in the last few weeks a breath of fresh blog subjects was in the air. I …
