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.

My Groningen City Hotspot Guide

As most of you guys now, my home town is Groningen City. I've lived there for 4 years, and definitely had a great time there. Before I left to start my new chapter in Washington DC, I did want to share my favorite hotspots in Groningen with you. The city of Groningen is one of the reasons why I decided to study at the University of Groningen - it has such a special atmosphere! That's why I created this Groningen City Hotspot Guide, with all my must visits in my city. I know Amsterdam is definitely more popular choice to visit in the Netherlands, but Groningen is a great city to see as well. If you've considered visited Groningen, keep reading (and if not, I hope I can convince you)!

Studio Apartment Home Tour

I know many of you have been waiting for this moment: My home tour of my new studio apartment in Washington DC. I love home decor and interior design, so it was definitely a pleasure to be able to style a new place. It was also so much fun to be able to shop at American based shops instead of European ones: there's so much more marble and rose gold items here! If you're interested in seeing a peek of my apartment here in the US, then definitely keep reading!

It’s My Birthday.

Dear Diary. It's my birthday today. And in celebration of that, I like to write this personal note on my previous year as a 22-year old. I feel like it is an unwritten to tell you that a lot has happened during this year. 22 was definitely a turbulent year for me. Starting with a break-up on my 22nd birthday, and ending it with me moving to a different continent to pursue the American Dream: You can safely say I've experienced a lot this past year. I had to fill quite some diaries to be able to process these events.

Santorini Travel Diary

Santorini is one of those places everyone wants to visit at least once in their lifetime. It is by far one of the most beautiful islands of Greece, due to its stunning nature and breathtaking sunsets. I have been fortunate enough to have been to this island twice, but the previous time is already years ago. I did not even had a blog back then, haha! In today's blogpost I wanted to share my Santorini Travel Diary with you, and hopefully inspire you and give you some tips if you are considering going to Santorini yourself as well!
