NYC Diaries | On Top of the World

NYC Diaries | On Top of the World

Experiencing this stunning view is probably one of the coolest things I’ve done in New York City so far. Yesterday I was luckily enough to visit the Rockefeller Center (and yes, I felt like a lil’ groupie when I realized my beloved Jimmy Fallon could be in this same building right at the same time as me!) and climb all the way up to the 70th floor for a different perspective on New York. I made a lot of pictures – of course – but I haven’t found the time yet to edit them all. That’s why I’m sharing one of my faves with you already in this new NYC Diaries post. Hope you like it! :)

NYC Diaries | Arriving in New York

NYC Diaries | Arriving in New York

Yellow caps, interesting architecture and shopping streets to die for: I’m talking about The Big Apple, aka New York City. If you follow my blog and social media, you’ll know that today is the first day I’m visiting NY. I thought it would be cool to make these little NYC Diaries every day on my blog, just so I can update you guys on my adventures (also, follow #wanderlustwithlilylike on Twitter & Instagram for more stories!). And damn you guys, NYC is treating me right. Today I arrived at this beautiful city and I have to say, I’m in love. This is my first time in New York (or USA in general) and I thought I wouldn’t really like it. I usually tend to go for smaller cities and I don’t find big metropols that attractive. Well, I have to make an exception for this city, even though I haven’t seen a lot. I love the atmosphere and the vibe of the streets. It almost feels like I’m ‘coming home’.

PERSONAL | My Body Confidence Issues

PERSONAL | My Body Confidence Issues

When I was younger, I really struggled with myself and how I looked. Most of these struggles were related to my body confidence issues. I don’t like to admit this, but I used to be a very insecure girl. I would wear tons of make-up (still like to do tho) and wake up 1 hour earlier to straighten my hair everyday, because I didn’t like my natural texture. And even when I did that I didn’t feel good about myself at all. I’ve always been a sporty girl (I played tennis, figure skated and danced), but it never made me look skinny. I’ve never been a naturally thin girl. I’ve always had thick thighs and legs and I hated them so much. I also felt like they looked even worse, because I was so small. It made me mad that even if I worked out or ate healthily, they never became any less noticable. And it annoyed the fuck out of me – being a perfectionist. I would never wear certain clothing items for example, because I was scared it made look really fat. Yeah, this issue goes deep for me…

PERSONAL | My Not So Cliché Life Goals for 2016

PERSONAL | My Not So Cliché Life Goals for 2016

At first I really didn’t want to do a ‘goals for 2016’ kind of post. Most of them are super cliché and they seem all pretty similar too. But because I got such an overwhelming positive response to my previous, very personal post, it felt right to also share this personal thing with you guys: my not so cliché life goals for 2016. I’d like to call them not so cliché, but I guess it’s just how you look at it of course. In 2016, I really want to do it right. Have my priorities straight, grow as a person and not focus as much on the bullshit. Having these goals all written down in one place definitely motivates me to stick to them too. And of course, at the end of 2016, it’s fun to see if I actually nailed them or nah. So I present to you: this is everything that I want to achieve in 2016.

PERSONAL | My Life Lessons of 2015 (That Will Help You in 2016)

PERSONAL | My Life Lessons of 2015 (That Will Help You in 2016)

Recently I’ve been trying to write shorter posts on my blog. Generally, people like reading shorter articles with more pictures, instead of really detailed blogposts with a lot of text. Same counts for me too. With that being said, I really started missing writing in my usual long, cryptical and personal way on my blog. A couple of things happened in my life recently (or not so recently and I’m still trying to figure them out). One of the ways I like to deal with that sort of stuff is by writing it down.
