It’s the final day of 2017 and 2018 will be here tomorrow! Last year has flown by pretty fast and has had some beautiful moments. I went on an amazing trip to Vienna with one of my best friends, I went on a lovely trip to Lisbon with my mom (where we met up with Achya and had an amazing day in Sintra) and I started college again (you can read more about that in yesterday’s blog post)! I have developed some professional skills and have definitely grown as a person… All in all, I have had a good year!
But, I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and I have some ‘new years resolutions’ to make 2018 yet another amazing year!
Here is my little list of “resolutions” or better yet: good intentions 🙂
- Lead an Instagrammable life, but not doing things specifically for the ‘gram. Meaning that I am going to live life to the fullest, do more fun stuff, document more things by taking photos etc. but not doing things differently because it makes for a better feed or whatever. In other words, I am going to stay closer to myself.
- Spend more time off-line (mostly meaning: less useless scrolling, less reading of negative news, less comparing to other people)
- Spend more quality time with family and friends
- Read more books, one book a month at least
- Write more, more blogs/diary entries
- Trust my own gut and go with it
- Be more positive, worry less
- Being more mindful
- Learn new skills
- Travel more
I hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve and I will see you in 2018!
Happy new year!!
Today I want to tell you a little bit more about the Simba mattress I was talking about earlier in this blogpost. A couple of weeks ago I received my new mattress, I was so excited to try out the Simba mattress as I was having some backaches in my lower back due to my old and honestly, saggy, mattress. So I was super happy when my new mattress arrived!
At first it was a little bit getting used to the new mattress, it’s just so different and it was quite a bit firmer for the first few nights. Luckily the Simba mattress adjusts to your body shape so after a couple of nights I noticed I was slowly sleeping better! By now I have slept on this mattress for about three weeks and I definitely noticed a lot of differences due to my better sleep!
Below I’ll share my video review – sorry it’s only in Dutch and I’ll tell you more about the benefits I notice thanks to my new mattress!

A while ago I was invited to attend a beach BBQ for the launch of a limited edition collaboration between We Fashion x O’Neill. Together they created a swimwear line for women with gorgeous bikini’s and a cute bright blue bathing suit.
I was excited for the BBQ and because I had a day off I decided to go to the beach early to soak in some well deserved sunlight and read a book. However, as soon as I arrived I saw that there was a group of press already present for a surf clinic by two of the best Dutch surf girls: Dominga Valdes & Julia van Rooij.
Let me tell you that I love surfing and have done it a couple of times already in Portugal and in Bali. So when the opportunity came around the corner and I was asked by the PR girls if I wanted to join the We Fashion x O’Neill surf clinic, of course I said yes! And so it happened, my day on the beach to relax became an epic day on the beach with fellow press and two amazing surf chicks who gave me some pretty good tips and tricks!
Thanks so much to We Fashion x O’Neill and of course to UPR who made it all happen!
I had a blast and I just can’t wait to hop on my surfboard again in about a week 🙂

Following my blogpost about what I have learned the past year and what I want to focus on this year (concerning my personal and professional growth) I decided to make a wishlist. Here are some of the items necessary or handy when it comes to some of my New Years plans – call them resolutions if you want to but I won’t do that, don’t want to jinx something that is already good 😉 …
These items are mostly yoga, personal / spiritual growth and personal style inspired.
Let me tell you a bit about my New Years wishlist!

Happy New Year to all of you!
