Pressing Pause

Pressing Pause

‘It’s not you… It’s me.’ Oh yes, it’s definitely me. I’ve been struggling with the how and when of this conversation and today felt like a fresh start in many ways, so it feels like the right time. I wish blogging was like riding a bycicle but I think I’ve kind of lost the skill. Might have been somewhere between deciding I had a new dream and actually living it. Melbourne has changed me in a lot of ways already…

When I started blogging, it was very new and I was very passionate about it. I wanted to write about places, things and people I discovered each and every day. Looking back at this online portfolio, I think I did a pretty good job. At some point I even began sharing with you my favourite/daily outfits. It took some courage and a lot of much appreciated help (little brother & B, thanks again)! I’ve had some amazing opportunities handed to me: travelling, meeting amazing people and designing my own shoe! But somewhere along the way, I lost the passion for (fashion) blogging.

I don’t want to put you guys off any longer, waiting for another post to come up… Because I just can’t do it anymore. I’m exploring this new creative side of myself… with my hands (drawing, sketching, crafting), my brain (creative & conceptual thinking) and my computer skills (every Adobe program). I’ll still be active on social media though!

What else am I going to invest some time in?

  • Sketching (for school & myself)
  • Looking for a job
  • Doing a 3-day Pressed Juice cleanse (so help me God)
  • Working out (hello Kayla)
  • Discovering some more Melbourne
  • Coffee hunting

Sleeptight www-baby, you’re in for a much needed rest!

Postcard from Melbourne










Blue skies, skyscrapers, palmtrees, art… Ah, my lovely Melbourne. Hi there, by the way! It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been keeping busy and never got around to blogging, I guess. I wish I just had Google Glass, it would be so much easier to soak things up and show you guys! I try to take as many pics as possible but there’s only so much I can post on Instagram without driving you guys crazy!

So, here’s an update: I’ve been doing a lot since I’ve arrived down under. Beach days, a day at the Werribee zoo, wandering around the city, drinking coffee (very important!) and of course SCHOOL! I’m very excited and keen on doing all the homework!!! I’m such a nerd, aren’t I? Well, I’ll try to post some more in the near future. I’m actually thinking of changing things around here. Stay tuned!

12 hours in Brussels

You’d think having half a month of jobless days, gives you more time to blog. Well, if that month is the last one before leaving for the other side of the world (read: Australia), forget it. Granted, I’ve had a few hours of doing absolutely nothing but I have had a lot of busy days too. When I wasn’t running from my doctor’s appointments to the bank and back to the health care office… I also met up with a few friends I wouldn’t be seeing at my goodbye party. One of those friends is my dear Renee.

Renee and I met back in 2013 when we were both doing our internship at Marie Claire Netherlands. I was always jealous of here because she was in the Graphic Design team, whereas I was responsible for the online articles, which I loved doing as well. Renee and I met up again that same year, when she came to Brussels to attend the Robbie Williams concert. From that day on, we had some sort of arrangement to meet each other every half year. Well, the arrangement somewhat happened and we kept doing everything to make it happen. As we did now. After I visited Renee in Rotterdam back in August, she took the train to visit me.

She made a vlog about the whole trip and I’m really amazed by her skills! She’s not only an awesome Graphic Designer, she also makes the best vlogs, will be an amazing photographer and she’s the best of friends you can wish for! Thank you for this awesome gift bae <3
