• My outfit for New Years Eve

    Before we really kick off a month full of travel posts, I wanted to share one of my Holiday outfits with you. I know… I know… I am late as always. Blogging + renovating + full time job + my planning skills = disaster. This was supposed to be my NYE outfit, but eventually I swapped for comfy trousers and a loose cardigan that night. Comfort above all as we had a real food fest with friends and hung on the couch for hours afterwards!…

    A blogger trip to Amsterdam

    A blogger trip to Amsterdam

    What do you do when you are bored of your local surroundings? Well, find some new places to shoot your favorite outfits of course! I just back from Vilnius when Eline and I got the spontaneous idea to get in the car and drive to Amsterdam for fun weekend filled with shopping, coffee and Amsterdam-admiring. I was too tired to actually shoot my outfits, but I got a great bunch of photos that I wanted to share with you today! Eline from Luminous Live and …

    Winter florals

    Winter florals

    It’s not a secret that I love travelling, a good cup of jo and playing around with clothes on a daily basis. What you might not know about me is that I also really love gardening. I can spend hours in the local garden center, mixing and matching plants for that perfectly styled border or planter. When we travel we always, always, always go for a walk in the botanical garden. In Spring I try to have fresh cut flowers in the house somewhere (…

    The one coat I wish I had owned sooner

    The one coat I wish I had owned sooner

    When I first started The Ginger Diaries I used it as a way to document my search for “a more colorful life one dress at the time”. It was the time where having a catch phrase for you style blog was still cool and happening, okay? My wardrobe was all black and blue at the time and I wanted a change. Almost ten years down the road and it seems I’ve walked a full circle. I’ve been bringing nothing but black, white and …

    Like a boy

    Like a boy

    Do your friends ever make up names for certain pieces of clothing or outfits that you wear? My boyfriend is an expert at finding fitting descriptions for my clothes. This knit sweater for example, is lovingly called the “construction worker sweater”. That’s his way of expressing his displeasure when I’m wearing it. He hates it. Not that I can be bothered. It’s cozy, soft and super comfortable thanks to the Batwing sleeves. When I needed to pick an outfit for our flight …

    Vilnius Coffee Bar Crawl

    Vilnius Coffee Bar Crawl

    When my boyfriend first suggested Vilnius as our next destination I was a little unsure. Not only was I completely unfamiliar with the culture and history of the country, I also had no knowledge about the Lithuanian cuisine. I love food (don’t we all?), but from what I remember from my last visit to Eastern Europe the food is well… not my cup of tea. Filled with joy was my heart, when I learned that Vilnius has a lot more to offer than Cepalinai …

    What I wore in Vilnius

    What I wore in Vilnius

    Wise people say there is a first time for everything. I’m not much of a fan of “first times”. I like to stick with what I know, stability, comfort zones, you know. While packing for Vilnius I struggled for the first time to fit all my essentials into my hand luggage and I was lost. Like, I am a good packer. Better yet: I am the QUEEN of packing. I am even better at packing than most boys because I have little stuff and …

    Postcards from Vilnius

    Postcards from Vilnius

    It’s been well over a month since K and I returned from Vilnius and I have no excuses whatsoever for why this post is up so late. The only reason is that the task of going through 300+ photo’s and editing a good few for the blog seemed so daunting on top of everything else I had to get done. Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen that we got the keys to our new home yesterday, so basically the …

    12 reasons to shop at H&M right now

    12 reasons to shop at H&M right now

    01/ Long knitted cardicoat (€39.99) – I have a thing for extra long cardigans this fall and it’s bad. I want one in every typical fall color: Beige, burgundy, olive, grey, cream and everything inbetween! I’m not sure how this warm beige will work out with my skintone, but I’m definitely going to check for this gorgeous tan colored number next time I pass by my local H&M. 02/ Long cotton blouse (€24.99) – I strongly believe that you can never have enough white tops.…

    The Shoe Issue

    The Shoe Issue

    It’s 20:55 PM on Halloween night, I’m home alone and I noticed that the blog post I had scheduled for tonight has somehow disappeared into the darkness of the internet. So here I am – with my steaming cup of hot cocoa and covered in a fleece blanket – to warn you, not for horror clowns and other creatures of the night, but for the dangers of online shoe shopping. When the Over-The-Knee boots trend took off again last year I was kind of undecided…
