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, graduating college, moving to a student flat in Antwerp, my first day at uni and …

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 coffee itself and you know it’s a problem. A serious one in my …

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 my camera at home and instead took an Instagram-like picture of every little thing we&…

Under The Blooming Trees

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, as I am still not able to walk in simple ballet flats or sandals after …

AD | Fitflop F-Pop Leather Oxford Shoes

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 classic ‘sporty-gorgeous’ slides never spoke to me. Not in any way even. I …

AD | Caudalie Vinosource Hydrating Skincare Review

With Vinosource Caudalie launches a new line of soothing, hydrating & plant-based skincare powered by the grape. The line promises beautifully hydrated skin and dreamy sensations, while being easy to introduce into your current beauty routine. With summer fast approaching and the cold winter leaving, my skin could really use a boost in hydration so when I was invited to the Belgian launch of the Vinosource line I happily said YES!I’ve been familiar with Caudalie as I have very sensitive skin and therefor prefer using pharmacy brands over what you find in the high street beauty stores. …
