I am over the moon with this prettttty one hanging on my shoulder. Finally made the decision to buy the trio bag. I have been dreaming about owning this bag for ages and now it's mine. A big fat cross on one of the items of my never ending wishlist. There are many more to come. I knew I would love to have the beige one, because I wear a lot of dark colours. This pops out a bit. Only taking her with me to dinners in town and little party's without drunk people around me. So scared someone will hurt her. Have a nice Sunday all, I am truly enjoying my last study day for now. Bye.

Since 5 weeks, I completely changed my lifestyle. Together with a friend, we started the Bikini Body Guide workouts with Kayla Itsines. You know, that way to pretty girl who works out 24/7 to get in shape. I try to workout at least 2 a 3 times a week. Sometimes I don't have enough time and I need to skip some. But since I started, I feel so much better. Yesterday evening we did week 6 and it was really heavy. They say the first 5 weeks are just a warming up for what's coming later. Besides the working out, I am also taking care of my consummation. Healthy and delicious breakfast which I would love to eat also as snack, lunch and dinner. Just tried to made myself an Açai bowl and it was so good. Just like how you get it when order it in a restaurant. Gonna make this myself once a week, as it is full of vitamines. What's your workout regime? Do you also use Kayla?
Oh and the recipe for the Açai bowl: put two frozen bananas in the blender together with 200 gram frozen Açai and 300 ml almond milk. After blending, add some fruit of your choise and some homemade granola (or sugerfree other granola). Enjoy!

I got some big news to share with you guys (!!!) Last Friday, we bought our own house and I still can't believe it. It is such a big step in our life and it feels like one big adventure. I really have to pinch myself many times a day to check if I am not dreaming. The coming weeks are going to be really excited. We bought a Loft, with beautiful wooden ceilings, a concrete floor and many windows. It is going to be a perfect house and I can't wait to design everything. First we need to sign a lot of papers before it is actually ours. Do you know someone who is owning a Loft? Because it is going to be quite a challenge. Where to sleep? Where to put our clothes, etc. Help me out!

Last weekend was epic. I've found a beautiful old apartment in the middle of Antwerp with a balcony so pretty, you can't imagine. The room had super high ceilings and windows which I loved so much. On Saturday we've been walking around and did a little shopping. In the evening we went to the concert of James Bay which was even more perfect. His voice is unique and so good. Sunday we've headed back home to celebrate Easter with my parents. It was a very nice getaway to Belgium and I can't wait to go back in a year or what. This was a nice weekend before the chaos and the storm. My head is full of deadlines and I can't ruin it as it is super important. In a few hours I am leaving again. Still need to pack because I am going to France for a few days. This is study related so I won't be able to discover Lille. Though, I hope I will get a impression of the city. I've heard it's a beautiful city with a lot of hotspots. Au revoir! Will get back to you soon. Follow me on Snapchat (mariskaol) to see all my adventures.

Coming weekend I am heading to Antwerp with my love. His birthday is in a week and I thought it would be a nice idea to celebrate this in Antwerp. Since we all heard the terrible news from past Tuesday in Brussels, I got a double feeling now. I was really looking forward going there, but after last week I'm a bit restrained. Should I still go? Is it safe? But on the other hand, life goes on.. and that's hard to say. I think we shouldn't change our lifes because that's what those monsters want. As I am not going to Antwerp very often, I would love to hear some tips from you. Where should I go,
where should I eat?

A quick beauty update from me while working my ass off this Monday morning. Coming weeks are going to be crazy, study wise. I need to do my assessment and the exams are also coming. So no more me-time, only #workworkworkworkwork. But, I went to the hairdressers to have a little me-time though. I've been cutting it short already a few weeks ago, but I wasn't truly satisfied. So here's my new coupe. Hello new short hair, I do like you a lot. What is your opinion?
