On life

Photo diary #2: June 2016

Time for a new photo diary! There was a lot going on this month; blogger events, dance parties and I went on a short break to Ibiza! I took so many photos there that it deserves a seperate photo diary, which I’ll post next week. Here are my most memorable June moments.

First, I went to Flying Dutch with my boyfriend, brother and his group of friends. The weather was un-Dutchlike: sunny and warm and it was an amazing day.

I went to a fair called Love for Life with my sister. It was really cool; lots of yoga, fitness, good food (vegan!) and inspiring workshops. Also, this ‘bucket list wall’. It was really amazing to read everyone’s life wishes.

PDJ38
This is my bucket list (in Dutch, sorry!). Only three things I really want in life: to be a fulltime blogger, finish my PhD and swim with pigs in the Bahamas! Seriously, there’s nothing I want more!

My sister!

And a selfie, of course.

My sister and I had our eyebrows done, which looked really good.

Even better up close!

Yoga.

A swing!! Yes, I’m actually 5 years old on the inside.

Also, I bought a hula hoop! This is the BEST core workout I’ve ever tried and also the most fun! Goodbye boring planks!!

The weather remained lovely and sunny this month. I live in Hilversum, the Netherlands, and I absolutely love it there, especially in the summer.

So pretty and green!

Oh, and I finally bought Spanx this month! And I’m not ashamed to say it! All women should own this miraculous underwear. I bought two thongs and they are my life! Whenever I wear a really tight dress or skirt these thongs are a lifesaver! No little flabs of skin or fat anywhere. Why didn’t I buy these earlier? I have no idea.

I also visited a food blogger conference this month, in Amsterdam, which was really cool. Also a little intimidating, since the speakers were so far ahead of me, but it’s good to realize you have lots to learn. I met some really great people and had an awesome day (all by myself!).

Can you believe that vegan camembert cheese exists? I have to be honest, it’s very different from the real thing. Number one: it doesn’t melt. Number two: I kind of miss the ‘cheesy’ flavor. But it’s still pretty good, especially as a snack or on a piece of toast. Pretty amazing and entirely plant-based! Thanks to my sister who got it for me!

PDJ8
Did I mention it was a sunny month in Holland? I spent too much time sitting in the sun, drinking wine and enjoying (vegan) snacks. Guilt-free, because this is my favorite time of the year. Remember: happiness is healthy and these moments make me very happy!

PDJ7
Dining at Sumo also makes me very happy, which is what my boyfriend and I did in Amsterdam earlier this month. We went to Amsterdam to view a short movie called ‘Dead Bob’ in which my brother starred. Yes, he was Bob. But first: dinner. At Sumo.

PDJ6
The most beautiful Sumo I’ve ever been to!

This is when my sister gave me vegan camembert cheese! So cool!!

Selfie time!

My youngest sister (middle) is a fashion blogger (lizzelc.com) and loves selfies even a little more than I do. My brother’s girlfriend (right) joined in!

PDJ60
See what I mean? I’ve never met anyone who takes photos as sneaky as she does.

PDJ59
Shortcutz is the name of the film movement where ‘Dead Bob’ was shown.

I got some new sunnies for Ibiza. Here’s me wearing them while trying the ‘fish gape’. You’re welcome.

PDJ3
June 17th was my youngest sister’s birthday! We celebrated in Utrecht with an enormous birthday card, cheap Mexican food and lots of wine. For a change.
