My summer reads (and whether you should read these too)

I know it's been a while since summer and we're well into October already. But, honestly, these books have got nothing to do with summer. So if you're looking for a good book, keep on reading! As every year, Goodreads makes me set a goal of books to read for the year. I once naively … Continue reading My summer reads (and whether you should read these too)


What Do You Do When on Aruba?

So as some of you may have noticed through my Instagram posts, I spent my (possibly last) summer holiday on Aruba. My parents live there so going back was like going back home. But that doesn't mean that I don't feel like a tourist.. One thing I can say for sure is that it is nothing like … Continue reading What Do You Do When on Aruba?

A year in the life of a blogger on a hiatus

Coming in. Hello. Hello? You there? I'm sorry I disappeared off the face of the planet - well, blogging planet really. I took about a year off of blogging to focus on school and work. To no one's surprise, life kind of took over and I needed all of my brain power to focus on … Continue reading A year in the life of a blogger on a hiatus

My Favourite Summer Lips

Hello, fellow lipstick lovers! I'm here with a simple post on my favourite lip products during the warm summer season. Although it's actually quite dark and gloomy these days here, it's still summer compared to the rest of the year. That calls for floral dresses, flowy skirts, and cute tops (albeit paired with denim jackets … Continue reading My Favourite Summer Lips

The Sweetest Palette | Too Faced

Hi beauties! I was recently in France and stumbled upon (two) wild Sephoras. Who would have known Frankfurt didn't have one but a little city like Colmar and Strasbourg did! I didn't expect to find a Sephora, so I didn't actually have such a budget for a proper palette, but I ended up getting it … Continue reading The Sweetest Palette | Too Faced

My Summer TBR

As you may have read in my previous post, I was ready to get out of here and go on an adventure through Europe! Although I associate the summer holidays with travel, I also am a firm believer of me-time, which the summer holidays are virtually made for. Me-time includes books, books, and more BOOKS.  Throughout the year I'm … Continue reading My Summer TBR

My new NYX lippies

First off, I'd like to apologise for my hiatus. I finally have some time away from my thesis (because I'm honestly just going insane from it as you may have read in my previous post.. and I'm also waiting for feedback). To those who stuck around, THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU. Right, so I've … Continue reading My new NYX lippies

My Travel-sized Skincare and Beauty

Can I get a whooooooohoo! Why? 'Cause my summer holiday has officially started! I've handed in my thesis and completed all my assignments for this academic year. Now it's time to enjoy my holiday! (regardless of the anxiety for my grade in the back of my head. ANYWAY!) Since I moved to the Netherlands, every … Continue reading My Travel-sized Skincare and Beauty

Dealing with Stress

By the time this post goes up, I'll hopefully be done with thesis writing. For now, as I sit on my couch desperately trying not to think about that gross feeling in the pit of my stomach, I'll make a list of ways that I've de-stressed in the past. I know a lot of people … Continue reading Dealing with Stress

Stages of the Thesis Life

The day is almost here. Which day? Doomsday. The deadline for my thesis submission is exactly T minus 1 week. And my head is spinning with all the anxiety and stress. This is actually my second thesis in the last year. Crazy, huh?! I'm currently doing a Masters in Linguistics, which requires a minimum of … Continue reading Stages of the Thesis Life
