You’re my hero and you don’t even know it.

In the aftermath of my personal journey through the ’13 reasons why’ series on Netflix, I decided I just had to write something about it. Or maybe not about the show at all. I guess I don’t have to tell you about the show in detail, since it has been blowing up on social media…

The people we lose along the way.

  As I feel myself closing in on that damn number 30, I have come to contemplate the past decade and what it has been for me.     My years as a 20 something were not just a journey into finding myself, it also became a time in my life where there was a steady coming…

Tourné Minerale. Almost 1 year sober

The gods of Belgian mainstream media have been so kind to me. February marks the month of the “Tournee Minerale” here. People give up alcohol for one month in order to ‘raise money for KOTK‘ (A Belgian charity involved in all things cancer). Just like the (in)famous ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’, it doesn’t seem to me…

Living life in the fast lane. Because we have to.

“I don’t get why you young people are always so tired?” My grandma can not get enough of throwing around this sentence every time she hears one of her grandchildren complain about how we have no time to get all our stuff done and we’d obviously rather take a nap instead. How do you explain…

I’m sorry you’re unhappy with yourself

As if it’s not hard enough being a woman already, in this fast, roiling 21st century, us ladies have a LOT more to deal with than the generations before us. Okay so even though we don’t have to burn our bras, fight for the right to vote or wear suffocating corsets all day: we definitely…

You call yourself a writer?

This is the question I’ve been struggling with a lot over the past months. This past year has in many ways been a good one for me. Next to making some changes in my personal life and really trying to follow a healthier path, I simultaneously have taken less time do take up some of my…

The difference between being blunt and being a cunt.

It’s one of those quotes that every internetdwelling, memeloving someone has come by right? In my circle of friends I often get tagged in posts like that and a standard introduction for me contains the words “rudest girl you’ll ever meet”. The thing is: nobody else really wants to be the blunt friend, because the shoes…

I’m a makeup nut with a heart for animals

There are a couple of phases one goes through when they develop a makeup addiction. One of these phases is that you frantically start searching for all the makeup reviews, tutorials and products you just have to have. It’s pretty much inevitable for the makeup nut to not come across the professional brands like MAC,…

It’s not you right? It’s everybody else?

Now that I am well in my twenties, thirty is creeping closer every day actually, I feel that I am entitled to finally have my say about this little sore point we’ve all had to deal with in our lives at one point or other. I am talking about a specific type of person. The…

On being a down-to-earth Indigo Adult

“You are the hybrids of golden worlds and ages splendidly conceived.” ― Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry This last year is marked by my journey into my own self. After struggling with a depression for months and months, I decided it was time to…

Welcome to me (and oh yeah, You!)

Hello and welcome. Wow that sounds stiff, but that’s still the polite and right way to do things, right? Anyway this is just a very short welcome to myself and possible new readers as I once again find myself venturing into the world of blogging. Not sure yet how it’s gonna pan out or what exactly…
