Life update: April | Student life and saying goodbye to Mino

IMG_20160318_132248

Hi guys, I just quickly wanted to tell you about certain events in my life! Good and bad parts unfortunately.

It has been a while since I posted a life update, also because I usually add a quick update with my recipe posts. Sometimes I doubt on whether or not to include those personal stories, but then I remember that this is my blog and that I enjoy reading other peoples’ personal stories too! I read foodblogs only partially because I get inspired from the recipes: a large part is about enjoying stories, bits and pieces of the lives of others.

How do you do? | food talk

 IMG_3153 Hi there, my favourite readers and blogger friends! Today I’m going to start with a post I’d like to bring back more often: food talk! This is a chance for me to get to know you, and to give an update of what’s going on in my life. I’ll share some of my favourite blog posts from the internet, some cool recipes or Instagram updates… Who knows!

I was at my parent’s place when I found these AMAZING vintage (real real real vintage from mothers great aunt or something) teacups etc. and I decided it was time for a little photography practising 😉 I made some tea and took everything outside in the sun! And you have to admit it looks sort of British, those teacups and saucers… That’s why I figured “How do you do?” would be the perfect title! *insert British accent*

Life update: Facing my fears

Schermafdruk 2016-03-03 11.04.22

So today (Wednesday) I feel like writing because it’s my first day back to school. I’m following classes from 12-17 and I’m extremely nervous! You might be thinking “gee woman, I thought facing your fears meant wrestling a bear or jumping out of a burning air plane!” Well, you thought wrong.

Don’t worry: this is not a post full of complaints and sob stories.

Life Update: February

Hey all!

I feel like writing something so write I shall. Read this blog if you’d like to know a bit more about me 🙂 Okay I started writing about life at my parents’ place, but I just came back from having dinner at the restaurant I used to work at. I feel like I have to write about it, because I’m bouncing around with so much energy… Everyone was so sweet I could seriously cry right now! I scratched every part I wrote about life at my parents place because it is too distracting haha.

There is so much going on in my head I have no idea how I’m supposed to sleep tonight. I will try to write it down and I’m currently chatting with my friend Mariska, which always helps. I have to post this, I think it’s a good idea to share it but it’s scary. Scary is bad. Scary things are things I would avoid. But I’m in a learning process, and scary is what I need to learn. Yes. No. Scary. I will never fall asleep like this…

Life update: it’s my birthday!

DSCN5412

Good morning, I think it’s time for another life update 😉

First of all: today is not my birthday. It was actually on 12/02, but I didn’t get to write about it until now! Even though I was alone on the day itself I had a really great birthday: we went out for dinner at an awesome wine bar (review will follow soon) and celebrated my birthday for family on Saturday in our apartment. My lovely friends came over on Sunday for some wine and cheese, too! Overall a great birthday weekend if you ask me.

The day started as it usually would: I went to the gym for a short morning work-out, and started planning my day after that. I had to finish one soup, prepare another, and bake two cakes! I prepared roasted tomato soup, a typical Dutch pea soup, a chocolate/vanilla cake and this lovely carrot cake. Took me nearly all day but the results were really nice 🙂
