Celebrating Valentine’s Day with Greetz.be

If you follow me along my travels or if you take a close look at my Instagram page, you will have noticed my love for flowers already. I try to have fresh flowers around the house all the time and they often make an appearance in my blog photos too. I recently received a bouquet in a very unlikely way and I wanted to share more about that with you today! For this blog post I also had some fun with my new DSLR camera&…

Top 10 Blog Posts of 2017

Over the years I published a total of 622 blog posts. 58 of which were written in 2017. And according to Google Analytics, these were my 10 most read blog posts of 2017! 10. Peplum And Lace Oh, I’m so happy to see that my favorite outfit of the year made the cut. Although the photos could have been better 5 I feel like I always say that), I really loved the outfit itself. I’ve worn it repeatedly in Spring and Summer. I used one…

Instagram: The 7 Things I Hate About You

Instagram: The 7 Things I Hate About You

Who remembers that Miley song, huh? Loooooong time ago. A lot has happened in the digital world since Seven Things came out in the year 2008. To me, the most influential change must have been the rise of popular social media. While platforms such as Blogger, Typepad, Tumblr and MySpace could be seen as social media avant la lettre, I believe it’s the rise of popular social media platforms that has really changed the course of digital content creation. It’s fair to say that …

The Perfect Piece of Home Deco For Travel Lovers | Wereldkaarten.nl Review

The Perfect Piece of Home Deco For Travel Lovers | Wereldkaarten.nl Review

I suffer from the travel bug. And it’s bad. Really bad. I have all the symptoms. I can feel at home anywhere. I’m not scared of getting lost in unfamiliar places. I have an endless list of destinations to visit. I love the feeling when the airplane starts to taxi, the acceleration and lift-off. And so on, and so on. Of course there are some downsides to travelling too. For example: I have yet to meet the first hotel pillow that can comfort …

A Healthy Brunch with Marlene Apples

A Healthy Brunch with Marlene Apples

No two things go together like bloggers and brunch. When Marlene Apples invited me to their brunch table at a very special location in Groenendaal-Hoeilaart I didn’t have to think twice. On the agenda: a yoga session with Eva Daeleman, a relaxing nature walk and a healthy brunch! I’m not exactly Sport-Spice and had never done yoga before so I was really curious to find out what it would be like. To be fair, I know so little about yoga that the stereotypical …

Docks Bruxsel Food Court & White Cinema

Docks Bruxsel Food Court & White Cinema

It’s not every day that a new shopping center opens its doors in teeny tiny Belgium, so when that happens you know everyone is going to be all about it! The buzz around Docks Bruxsel hasn’t calmed down since its opening in late 2016 and I had been dying to pay a visit. When my blogger buddy Eline asked me if I wanted to join her for the blogger presentation of the food court I jumped for joy! To Brussels we went! We got …

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 …

Date night at the Tall Ships Race 2016

Date night at the Tall Ships Race 2016

A few weeks ago the Tall Ships Race took place in Antwerp and while the boats are well on their way to Lisbon by now, I still wanted to share a few of the snaps I took. My boyfriend and I met up with friends for dinner at Balls’n’Glory and took a detour to visit the TSR along the way. We saw the Tall Ships prepare for sail for the first time in 2010 and they left a might impression on us. This edition …

The Ginger Diaries 2.0

The Ginger Diaries 2.0

After 7 years of blogging it was about time I gave The Ginger Diaries the web space it deserves. Ever since I was little – we’re talking elementary school age – I wanted to have my own independent website. Today I present you The Ginger Diaries 2.0. Guys, I am the happiest redhead in all of the blogosphere. Satuday was the big day! After about thirteen years of dreaming, I hauled my custom domain and all 564 posts over to a self-hosted WordPress. All in all…

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 …

Apartment update: Living room tour

It’s been 10 months since we moved into our first apartment and finally I have a post ready with our finished living room! I’m a little lost for words at the moment as I’ve just written all the text below (yup, it’s another long one!) and two application letters for different jobs I’m eyeing, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking for me! Enjoy! Dille & Kamille light grey pillowcase • H&M home baby blue pillowcase • Hema cross …
