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&…

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.

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 …

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 …

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.

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 …

It’s my 24th birthday today! On my 23rd birthday I was looking forward to graduation, my first job and moving in with my boyfriend. Well, graduation took a little longer than expected and I haven’t found a full-time job, but we did find a beautiful, open and light apartment that is finally starting to feel like a home. We recently bought the last bits and pieces for the living area and once I get K to clean up his messes I’ll share …

Skechers Wijnegem Store Opening

Skechers Wijnegem Store Opening

Skechers recently opened its first mono-brand store in Wijnegem (Belgium) and I was there to check things out! My dear old friend L was in need of some retail therapy and what better way to fight the wardrobe blues than to go shoe shopping! Not that I needed any more shoes, but *spoiler alert* I found the Skechers pair of my dreams. 12 years ago… When I was in High School Skechers had its first moment right after the Von Dutch / Scapa / Converse…

Smartphone photography: Black Eye Wide Angle Lens review

Smartphone photography: Black Eye Wide Angle Lens review

Exciting news! Exciting news! One week from today I am travelling to Barcelona! Well, if the announced airport strike doesn’t throw a spanner in the works. I haven’t done much planning yet, but I do know what will be the first thing that I pack: my Black eye wide angle lens. And here are the reasons. On a rather rainy day I decided to get ahead and work on some blog content that I had planned. Our apartment has beautiful light, even in …

The Instagram Tag

The Instagram Tag

It’s been over a month since I was tagged for the Instagram tag, but I thought it’d still be fun to share my instant favorites on the blog today! What was your last picture of 2015? We were on our way to friends in East-Flanders when the sun was setting on December 31st. I had my new Black Eye wide angle phone lens with me and just had to snap a picture!   What was your first picture of 2015? Coffee. This is very telling.&…

Chai lattes at home with Chalo

Chai lattes at home with Chalo

Until last Thursday I had never had a chai latte. I actually didn’t even really know what a chai latte was. Today, I am a convert. ‘Cause this stuff is good! And here’s a blog post to tell you why. Chai what? All I knew was that Chai Lattes are the new popular kid on the blog. I was curious, but I am also a creature of habit and kept to the coffee kind of latte. With vanilla syrup, because who cares? All …
