• 11 More Things To Do in Paris in Spring

    Paris is always a good idea, but even more so in the Spring. Why, you ask? Well, because IMHO there’s little better than enjoying a delicious Pierre Hermé macarons or two under a blossoming cherry tree in the Jardin de Luxembourg. I’ve taken you around Paris many times before on this blog, but today I’ll be walking you through the city of love in the Spring. Here are 11 more things to do in Paris in the Spring! Ready? Here we go! 1. Eat Falafel in Le Marais Le Marais has been a go-to for tourists for many years now…

    Vitamin Sea in Breskens

    Let’s go back. Back to when the moon, the stars all ali… I mean, back to February 2020, when our borders were still open and we could freely drive to The Netherlands on a sunny winter day. We came to Breskens for the first time last year. It was summer then, and the beach was full of people and the ice cream shops had lines going down the block. It was sunny this time too, but ice cold and the wind was blowing fiercely. All the shops in the small town center were closed and there was nearly nobody on…

    For Fox Sake

    Hi, how are you holding up? Every time I post on my blog the world has gone a little more crazy it seems. We’ve been in lock down for nearly two full weeks and we haven’t reached the peak of the virus yet, so it looks like we will be cooped up for a little while still. My burnout-related anxiety, however, is reaching new heights. I am still on sick leave and my boyfriend is working from home now, so we’re both in quarantine at home. We go out for the occasional walk around the block and once a week…

    A Winter Weekend in The Netherlands

    It’s safe to say that I travel a lot. I plan most of my trips in the months May, June and September to November. The rest of the year you’ll usually find me trotting around Belgium with my camera in one hand and my phone with a list of coffee bars in the other. That doesn’t mean the travel bug doesn’t bite in my ‘off months’. Since I graduated and started working full time in 2016, I’ve noticed a little itch every year around February. My boyfriend and I both try to save our paid leave for later in the…

    Spring Wardrobe Refresh With H&M

    A little side note before you read on: I created and wrote this post last week, before our country went into lock down. I still want to post it today. Admittedly, it feels a little strange to be talking about shopping for clothes in the face of a pandemic and while all the stores are closed. I know everyone seems to be encouraging online shopping right now, but I’m holding back because I don’t want to put a burden on our postal system with unimportant orders. As a teenager who was just starting to explore her style, Zara was my…

    Dot Dot Dot

    A lot has changed in the world since my last post. For my own sanity, I tuned out of social media, stopped following the news and even switched off the radio and created new lists on my Spotify. The corona virus is real, close and scary. Our government has halted all public life with strict measures. Schools, restaurants and other gathering places are closed until the 3rd of april (for now). Shops are to remain closed on weekends (not grocery stores and pharmacies). The people need to isolate themselves and not meet with anyone except housemates. Not even in small…
