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!

The Backstage Pics

Instagram is all I think of lately. I decided to put more effort into the pictures I put on my account but I still want it to be instant, you know? Some pictures don’t make the cut, so that’s why I thought I’d share them here on the blog. I’ve been off work since Monday and that gave me a lot of time to work on the blog and do some research for my upcoming project, if I may call it that. I’ve been in some comfy outfits for most of the week but when I finally decide to get out of the house, I steal my dad’s shirts to dress up! On another not: I’ve been addicted to my new pieces of jewelry and… going to the gym! You might not see it but I sure feel it. Sore muscles or just that fit and motivated feeling, I sure got it! My I.Ma.Gi.N. ring and Smile bracelet have not left my wrist and finger since I bought them. What else happened? My friend Stephanie got a cute dog called Mia and Primark opened up in Brussels… but seeing those long lines in front of the store 2 days after the opening, I guess you already knew!

Treat yo self

Spoiled brat! You might be thinking… Well, think again lovelies, because I’m everything but that. I’ve been raised to work for & go after things I want. And I’ve been doing exactly that since I was 15 years old. But up until this year, I never really enjoyed doing all that in the sense that I worked my but off for something specific and then the money was gone in an instant. This year on the other hand, I was able to work, save up, do & buy the things I wanted. It never felt so good to be able to do all that! Granted, some thought I wasn’t going to reach my goal because they thought I spent a lot. But that makes reaching a goal more attractive: proving people wrong! I bet the whole ‘YOLO‘ thing got old by this time but I’m a strong believer in doing things because you actually do live once. Why worry and deny yourself fun things? It all works out in the end… So just do it, go for it, buy it, do whatever makes you happy!

My latest treat: the iPhone 6 Plus. I know, it’s a lot of money. But I see it as an investment. I’ll be using it more for the blog but also for personal stuff. Instead of buying an iPad in addition to my iPhone 5 and a MacBook, I thought it was better to combine ‘a tablet’ and a smartphone. Do I regret buying it? Hell no! You’ve got to treat yo self from time to time ;-)
