#personal – If it fits, I sits

Studying, studying, studying is currently the main way I pass my time. This diary article is a little different from my usual diary posts: no little city trips or blog events, just me, my books and my cat. Zuzu has been accompanying me while studying and has been doing the funniest things. Take a look at my life in photos. I am honestly surprised at the amount of pictures I managed to snap that are somehow connected to ‘studying’ haha.

cat sees candle for the first time
Cat meets candle. This was the first time that Zuzu saw a candle burning. She wasn’t scared of the candle, but kept gazing at it for a good couple of minutes. Zuzu is smart kitty with obsessive tendencies. If you play with a laser light with her she will be searching for the little red dot hours after you have turned the thing off. I swear she won’t stop looking.

Tony's Chocolonely
While studying I enjoyed a mini Tony’s Chocolonely bar.  Tony’s Chocolonely is all about slave free chocolate. Not only is the cacao used in these bars produced in a fair way, they also taste amazing!

Study date
And this is what university does to my dates with Chris. I study while he researches something on the laptop.

Favorite Vlogging Families
Whenever I take a break from studying I love to watch a vlog of one of my favorite vlogging families.

I put up my first ever Face of The Day article that featured my everyday look explained step-by-step this week. The article got a lot of good responses, so I think this is a format that I will continue posting.

Mint Tea

I love treating myself to a cup of fresh mint tea, especially while studying. I wrote a little article that explains the benefits of drinking fresh mint tea with honey. If you are interested you can read it HERE.

If it fits I sits
Zuzu is also a classic example of the ‘if it fits I sits‘ theory. She will literally try to squeeze her little butt into any possible (or nearly impossible) object.

I told you…

One of the rare moments I got to go outside this past week. And the sun was shining, which is even more rare during this time of the year in The Netherlands.

healthy lunch
Chris came home from work for lunch. We enjoyed one of my favorite healthy lunches: bread with hummus and rucola with blueberries and fresh fruit juice on the side.

Hope you liked this post! I’m sorry if this post was a bit more boring than what you’re used to from me. Hopefully after I am done with exams my life will become a bit more interesting again. If you want to have a peek into my life first hand you can follow me on Bloglovin’TwitterInstagram or Facebook by the way!

With Love,
