January 2017 flew by! This post will take you through the highlights of my month, and includes a (food) photo diary. Photos taken in Rotterdam and Breda.
Are you ready?!
So, I’ll start with some talk first. How has your first month of January been? Any exciting news? In case you haven’t seen it on Instagram stories already: I DO have some exciting news! In this month alone, seven of my photos got accepted to Foodgawker.com. In comparison to only two in 2016! This made foodgawker my number 1 source for visitors. Cool, eh?
But that’s not all. As you may have noticed, I’ve paid more attention to Pinterest also. This really paid off, as I was able to increase my number of visitors coming from Pinterest.
Then, finally, I had some of my recipes featured on the Daily Meal and even MSN.com! I wasn’t even aware MSN still existed, but was happy to see many people clicked the link to my site. Seeing my site grow makes me so proud!

I think it’s time for my photo diary now 🙂
First of all, let me discuss what came in the mail this month. I received this super cool PR package from Batavia Dutch Coffee, and uploaded a blog about it two days ago (don’t forget to check it for a special discount code!). Also, I plan to create some recipes with this cold drip coffee. Maybe for next month’s photo diary!
Yes, we went out for lunch in Breda again! What’s a photo diary without going out for food… It really is such a friendly city, with so many places to grab a coffee or some food! You can read my experiences at PuiCk Breda in this blog post.
More food in the mail: this time we ordered some Muesli Mixers from MyMuesli. My custom made muesli was a bit disappointing (not as sweet, crunchy or varied as I’d hoped!) but the bf has a pretty nice one.
Ah, yes. Tuesday is my favourite day of the week: I get to stroll around the farmers market! I don’t know why, but it makes me incredibly happy to pick out fresh fruits and vegetables from such a huge variety. And look at those huge sweet potatoes!
Errrr, awkward picture of me with a glass of wine. We went to Rotterdam for a night in the town, where we enjoyed food, good music (José Gonzalez and the Goteborg string theory!) and a peaceful night in a super comfy bed at CitizenM. No kitty to wake us up!
Didn’t bring my camera to the dinner we had, so I only have ugly phone pictures. However, I couldn’t NOT share this with you as it was possibly one of the best desserts I’ve ever had: an oreo-whisky chocolate brick! Soooo rich, but so good. We shared one, and I was still so full!
Talking about kitties…. This is what our lazy Sundays look like.
And this is our Sunday brunch 😉 I plan on uploading a blog about this cool place sometime soon.
Hope to see you again next month, and stay posted for new recipes! 🙂
