#personal – Bagel Knowledge

bagel and macarons
Some weeks you just have to work, work and work. The past two weeks were exactly like that. People had to be interviewed, deadlines had te be met, articles had to be re-written. I did manage to squeeze in some time for blogging and taking outfits pictures. Take a look at my life in pictures.

I totally forgot to post pictures of my graduation. Here in The Netherlands graduations ceremonies are often a lot duller then in the USA, well at least mine was. Signed my bachelor’s degree, now onto my masters!


My boyfriend Chris took this cool picture of my dad and I.

I love having my kitties by my side when I work on articles. Petting them gives me just that extra bit of strength needed for meeting a deadline.

I know… especially when working hard it’s important to take care of your body. But sometimes the only way to go is pizza. And I got caught in the act.

Treated myself to a cup of caramel coffee (Nespresso I love you!) and macarons while slaving away on articles! It was unfortunately a case of don’t judge a book by it’s cover: the macaron shells were completely hallow… and that for €1,50 each!

Chris and I took a little break and went to the dunes to shoot these amazing outfit pictures. I honestly think this is my all time favorite picture out of all the pictures Chris has ever taken of me.

But I must say that I’m also pretty proud of myself for taken these product pictures for my review of Lush’s Porridge Soap!

Bagel Lunch
Went out to lunch with my mom to my all time favorite lunch place: Bagels & Beans.

Bagel Knowlegde
Bagel knowledge!

Little Gurt found himself a tennis ball and refuses to part ways with it. When you throw it he chases it like a little doggie. He just hasn’t learned to fetch yet.

After having met all my deadlines I went out shopping with my mom and took outfit pictures of the newest edition to my closet with Chris. The above picture is a little sneak peek!

What did you do the past week? 

With Love,

    Congratulations on graduating! Though, I do think graduation ceremonies in the US are fairly dull.. especially from college. The last one I went to (here in the US) was 4 hours long, bleh.
    That photo of you is stunning. The landscape, clothing, and the sunlight is all perfect! And the sign for the bagel shop made me chuckle 🙂

      Thank you! Really? My American boyfriend made it seem like ‘American graduation ceremonies’ were so much cooler 😛 At least you get to throw your hat thingie in the air right?
