Photography / Music & Cupcakes

I haven't used my camera as much as I would have liked lately. It's getting better though. I took some snap of my little brother listening to music and the delicious cupcakes he baked.

Photography / Amsterdam I ♥ you

If it wasn't obvious from the title yet, I love Amsterdam. Whenever I'm there I'm getting such a positive vibe, like anything is possible (and it is!). I love that there are always people around and that there is always noise. Where I am from it's pretty quiet (which can be nice as well) and that's why I love the sound of the big city. Amsterdam has such beautiful buildings, canals and streets. One day I'll live here =)

Food & Drinks / Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

I tried out another healthy baking recipe, this time oatmeal cookies. They turned out way better than the coconut balls, I made last time. They were really easy to make and they tasted pretty good! Next time I will try to make them look a little bit more pretty, but that's something for another time =) Do you have any recommendations for what I should be baking next?

Photography / Shooting RAW

I don't know if it was the perfect lightning, my new camera lens or my awesome (uhum) skills, but I think I like shooting in RAW. I tried it for the first time and I really like the results. I still have so much to learn, but I can't wait to find out more. I did find out that I need a memory card with a much larger storage space though.

Fashion / Zara Checked Flannel

My Zara blouse has been my absolute favourite this month. I had seen it when I was in London, but I didn't buy it because it was quite expensive (I do most of my shopping at Primark, so every other store is 'expensive'). But then I saw it again when I was shopping in The Hague. I tried it on and I was sold. I think it has the perfect shades of red, white and blue =)

Photography / New Tamron Gear

I finally decided to buy a new camera lens! It's the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8. It was actually the Canon 17-55 mm f/2.8 that was on my wishlist, but that one is still a little (a lot) above my budget. So I opted for this one instead. I've been using the Canon 50 mm f/1.8 for a long time now and although I love it, I really wanted a good quality zoom lens again. I read reviews online and people were really positive about this lens. I have always loved photographing buildings and with the 50 mm lens I always felt a bit limited. So I can't wait to go to the city and try it out =)

Stationery / Notebook and more Haul

More stationery things! I love pink, so I couldn't leave these pink goodies behind. Oh and I can't wait to get creative with the tags and the washi tape. Last but not least, how do you like my neon pink (yes it's as bright as it looks) jumping rope?! Awesome right! =)

Photography / Home Interior Details

I love home interior and it has been a while since I took shots like these. I really like seeing snippets of somebody's home, I hope you like seeing these too =)

Fashion / Cable knits

I love these cable knits! Especially the grey one. The sleeves are so long, it's so comfy. The white one fits really well and looks great with a simple black jeans. I'm getting so much use out of these two.

Food & Drinks / Failed Coconut Balls

I like baking, but I'm not really the innovative type in the kitchen. I just follow the recipe and hope everything turns out OK. In the 'past' I didn't want to do too much baking, because well who was going to eat it all? Now that I'm on my healthy journey, I've discovered 'healthy baking'. Apparently you can bake things, eat them all (in moderation) without adding all that extra weight. I started out with making banana bread, which turned out pretty good (if I say so myself). After the banana bread, I tried my hand at making coconut balls. Those turned out not so great (as in really dry). Next time I'm making them, I'm adding an extra banana. I love finding all these new recipes and making them! Interested in one of these recipes? Google them! They're all over the internet. 

What's your favourite 'healthy' recipe?

Stationery / Sticker Haul

Only people that are as obsessed with stationery as I am, will understand how excited I get when I see things like this in shops. This time I couldn't contain my excitement and purchased a few things. I can't wait to use these stickers! =)

Photography / It's a cat's life

What a model! She did so well (even though it was probably the sun that kept her there).

Design / Valentine's Day Wallpapers

Because next week it's Valentine's Day, I felt inspired to make some Valentine's Wallpapers. You don't like Valentine's Day? I made something for you as well =) What will you be doing on Valentine's Day? I've a soccer match and in the evening I will probably treat myself to some Oreo's.

Books / Glamorous magazines

Usually I don't read magazines. There is so much free stuff to read on the internet, why buy magazines? But recently I got a giftcard for a subscription to a magazine of my choice. I chose Glamour magazine. Then I got a giftcard from a bookstore. So I bought The Silkworm by Robert Calbraith and there was still some money left on the card, so I bought Elle magazine. Last but not least, somewhere around Christmas, I treated myself with Women's Health and Runner's World magazine. And now I have all these magazines! =)
Do you guys buy magazines often?

Printables / The Beauty Checklist

I love putting on a face mask, because it makes my skin feel wonderful. But then three weeks have past and I still haven't put on another face mask. I always keep forgetting to do things like that. Sounds familiar?

Keep forgetting to scrub your body, remove your make-up at night and to give yourself a manicure? It happens to me all the time, so I've made a (10 week) beauty checklist! You can create your own beauty ritual, without forgetting any of the important beauty things again. Use a pen, colourful markers of pretty stickers to check of your list.

I forgot how much I love getting creative in Photoshop and with pen and paper. I love making checklists as well, so this was so much fun to do (and my skin will definitely thank me later).

Fashion / Pink Panther

I got some discount cards, so I allowed my myself (I'm on a budget) to buy some new sportswear. A sports tank top and a sports bra from H&M. It was really difficult to get the colour of the clothes right and it's still not totally the same as in real life (but close enough). 
Did you buy any new sportswear recently?
