My Experience With a Compulsive Liar

I am laying in my bed on the floor. Surrounded by dusty pink pillows and fairy lights, I stare out of the floor-to-ceiling window of my new apartment in Washington DC. I have come a long way. A way different than expected; a way leading to other destinations than planned. Exactly one year ago from today, that way was leading me to the point of questioning my whole existence. Why did this happen to me? How did I allow a person like that into my life, let alone so close to me? Doesn't this only exist in the movies? I still remember everything, and especially how it felt. I can never forget that. Exactly one year ago from now, I broke up with the person I was in love with. The reason why I had to break up with him, was because he happened to be a compulsive liar.

I know Amsterdam is definitely more popular choice to visit in the Netherlands, but Groningen is a great city to see as well.

My New Self-Portrait Dress for Fall

Say goodbye to your little black dress: the little red dress is going to be your new best friend. Red has been the hottest color this Summer (especially paired with millennial pink), but now that it's Fall, red is still going nowhere.
