Christmas Menu Ideas | Blogmas 2016

Well hello there my lovely readers, Christmas is approaching at a rapid rate and I’m almost sad it will soon all be over. I enjoy the days building up to Christmas more than the actual day. All of the hype around the holiday is what’s worth it. Speaking of Christmas day, I’m actually planning a…

Fun-Filled Evening | Blogmas 2016

Hello there fellow readers! So what’s the holidays without a fun and cozy evening? I actually had an amazing night with a friend a few days ago. We planned to wear our coziest pajamas,  bake some gingerbread cupcakes, listen to Micheal Buble, watch a Christmas film, and have loads of Christmas fun – as corny as…

My Top Holiday Lipsticks | Blogmas 2016

Hello dearies! So I’ve been quite obsessed with lipsticks lately (for past two years, oops). During the Summer, we’re more inclined to stick to the ‘natural’ look, which includes beautiful nudes. But wearing more bold – and not to mention red – lipsticks are more acceptable during the holiday season. That is not to say…

TBR Bookmas | Blogmas 2016

Hi guys! First of all, I’d like to apologize. I said I’ll do Blogmas and then I disappeared for 3 days. Oops. Life happens, and to be honest, no inspiration? C’mon, it happens to everyone. Anyway! So lately I’ve been obsessed with reading Christms-themed books. Okay so I may have not actually read any of…

My Christmas Playlist | Blogmas 2016

Hi there my lovely reader! I’m here to share my Christmas playlist with you. This playlist a complete must before I start decorating for Christmas – I haven’t actually decorated yet because here in the Netherlands we have something called “Sinterklaas pakjes avond” on the 5th of December. Sinterklaas is basically “St. Nicolas” and comparable…

My Christmas Wishlist | Blogmas 2016

  Heelloo my lovely readers! This is officially my first post on Blogmas (if you don’t count my Christmas market picture experience!) We often associate Christmas with the new and throwing out the old (since it’s so close to new year’s). And with new things comes a wish list, because how will people know what…

Welcome to Blogmas with The Girl with an Accent!

Hi my lovely readers! I know I’ve been a bit MIA lately… life happens as you all know. November flew by in a blink of an eye and, would you have it, it’s already the last month of the year 2016! I’ve seen many bloggers and YouTubers do blogmas/vlogmas and thought I’d give it a…

Autumnal Make-up Inspiration

Heya dearies! It’s really starting to feel like Autumn lately! Although I’m afraid we’re going over to Winter now… but the trees are as beautiful as ever! There’s almost no green left in the hues of the trees. It’s an ocean of warm red and deep orange tones – which is inspirational for many things…

Fall in Love with Autumn in Nijmegen

Hiya lovelies! I’m here with another post part of the collaboration! This week’s prompt is pictures of what Autumn looks like in my area. Funny thing is that I did a similar post like this last year. I went to the park nearby place and went crazy! If you’re curious click here!  Funny thing is…

Tips for Healthy Lunch Recipes!

Living in the Netherlands can quickly trap you into the eternal loop of having just sandwiches and mainly bread-based meals for lunch. How European of me, eh? Especially considering our schedules nowadays (uni-students holler at me!), resorting to the easiest option – a simple old sandwich – can be quite tempting. Oh, all the possible…

Deep Thoughts During Diwali

It’s this time of year that get me thinking about my roots or where I really come from. This time of year, you think? You’re probably thinking I’m referring to Halloween. No, my friend, Halloween doesn’t conjure up deep thought but rather the auspicious day of Diwali. The festival of lights that is celebrated joyously…

Spooky Arubian Folklore

Heya fellow readers, Guess what, it’s Friday and that means it’s my day to post! This week’s theme is scary stories. Pretty appropriate right before Halloween, eh? So since my life is far from scary unless you count all the pizza/bacon/chocolate-less days, I decided to opt for a scary story I grew up with back on…
