The Perils of Losing Weight

I recently lost some weight. How, you may ask? Well, I joined a weight-loss competition on this website called dietbet.com. I found it because a girl I follow on Instagram was promoting it. Lose weight and get paid. Say what! Although the money is not my main motivator in this. No, my real motivation comes [...]

Woe is me: kickboxing edition

“Ri! What happened to your eye!” “What? Oh yeah, I got hit in the face… “WHAT!” “…during kickboxing!” Me at work a couple of week ago. And it gets even worse, because technically I hit myself in the face. That’s right, I was blocking my face, fists raised, when the guy hit my fist that [...]

Sweet Nostalgia

My mom's side of the family owns a house on the beach. It's situated right on the dunes so you only have to walk down to get to the beach. We've been going there every year since as long as I can remember. My great grandfather had it built in 1924, so the house is [...]

When life gives you lemons…

...move some furniture around! Or at least that's what seems to work for me (feng shui!). My living room is much bigger now. I have curtains. I have some new cozy lamps. I did a thorough cleaning. It mostly helps give the home a sort of 'before' and 'after' feel. And after is definitely beginning [...]

Chili Con Carne

Even though I like chili, I don’t eat it that often. A shame really because it’s ideal comfort food that’s easy to make and lends itself to storing leftovers. So when my boss of all people told me last week he had made the best chili ever, I got curious and asked him for the [...]

Endings

Ok fuck it. I know it's been ages since I've last posted a blog, and I think that this is in part due to the fact that I am secretly scared of people actually reading them. Even if that is the whole point. But in this moment I find myself not caring about that one [...]

Butternut Squash Soup

I'm not a big fan of soup. Anyone who knows me probably know that. And up until a few weeks ago, the idea of enjoying a bowl of butternut squash soup seemed not at all appetizing to me. That all changed on January 4th! My best friend celebrated her birthday that day, and had prepared [...]

Utrecht: Ellis Gourmet Burger

Introducing my first post in the review category, inspired by yesterday's restaurant visit. Everyone who knows me knows I love a good burger, and I love trying out new burger places. Yesterday we decided to try out Ellis Gourmet Burger in Utrecht, which has only been in business for about 3 months. There were three [...]

The Call of the Void

I'm sure we've all experienced it, I know I have. That niggling voice in the back of your head while driving at high speeds reminding you that just one twist of your arm would be enough to end it all. Or that rush you get when looking down a tall building or cliff that really [...]

Roast Beef

Around Christmas time the local supermarkets are flooded with prime pieces of meat that serve as delectable Christmas meals. Although for now I largely don't have to do any cooking around Christmas, I do like to take advantage of the influx of juicy cuts of meat. Hence, today: Roast beef! This is quite an easy [...]
