The Suede Jacket

I've been a busy bee in April and on May 1st I kinda decided enough was enough, and I cycled myself to the station, got on a train to the Hague and had some serious retail therapy. Does anyone else absolutely love shopping on their own, or is that just me? I honestly had the best time, haha.

Now a lot of the current trends are not really suiting me, which is a bit annoying (but also good for my bank account I guess). However, I did find some great spring pieces that will definitely help me get through this strange, ever-changing weather here. One of them is this GORGEOUS brown leather jacket which I fell in love with immediately. It's pretty much exactly what I've been looking for as an addition to my wardrobe.

Current Obsession: Sweet Potato Fries

Yay, another current obsession! This one has been in my life for a few months now and I don't see it going anywhere any time soon. It's bascially the yummiest, easiest recipe EVER for sweet potato fries.

You know healthy but delicious foods are my jam and it was about time I shared a recipe with you on my blog again. This is something I make weekly ~ I just find it's such a good way of getting some veggie in your meal and still satisfy an "unhealthy" craving. A bit of mayo and ketchup on the side do the trick for me, but they are great on their own as well.

Taking On Mindfulness & Turning 23

Hi there! How are you all doing??

With all the changes that have been happening these past couple of months, I feel like I'm finally catching up on life a bit at the moment. EVERYTHING had been put on the back burner to focus on me and my mental well-being - and you know what? It was actually quite nice!
Now unfortunately I can't put off writing my thesis, working out and/or paying my bills any longer (I WISH), but I really wanted to find a way to keep that focus on myself and my inner peace, especially during the crazy-busy months of graduating ahead of me.

That's why I decided ~ kind of on a whim ~ to enrol myself in a 6-week mindfulness course, starting this week. Ehrm, how's that for spontaneity?! It feels oh-so-right though, and no matter what I'll get out of it, I know it can only do me good.

How I Spend My Me-Time

I always find it important to spend time by myself - but ESPECIALLY when I feel like I've been running around like a headless chicken day in day out (like the past couple of weeks...). I've found that I really enjoy a specific routine in my "me-time", or at the least I prefer to do certain things over others. Maybe this little list will help some of you to find some time in your day to unwind. Let me know what you love to do when you're by yourself! For now, here are my five favourite ways to spend some time alone...

Current Obsession: Pinterest Homes

I've decided to start a new series called 'Current Obsession'. I often have something at a certain point in time which I'm totally obsessed with. This can be ANYTHING from food or a certain book or series to something on social media. It's never anything elaborate enough to make a 'monthly favourites' (I pretty much use the same makeup and toiletries all the time, for starters) but nevertheless it's something I would love to share with you. So anytime I'm like "hmmm, I can't really imagine my life without this anymore, I pretty much think about this 24/7, etc. etc.", I will write a post about it!

Current Life Goals

Oh, hi there! How are you??
I have been MIA for far too long. In all honesty, I have been writing the odd post here and there, but I just haven't had the headspace to fully focus on my blog. Until now, I suppose!
Lot's has changed since I last sat down and pressed 'publish'. Maybe that's why it feels a bit scary to start again - but, it feels very right at the same time as well.
