Currently in love with the winter collection -soon to be unwrapped – by & Other Stories. Black and white basics make a very clean look which I adore. Another thing I have noticed in this winter collection is the hair cut of the models; bangs with a short hair cut. I have seen this haircut before in a magazine while my friend was about to get a new haircut. I loved it instantly and advised my friend to go for this style, which she eventually did -after hesitating- and it looks adorable! Now I am thinking of going for bangs, despite the fact that I hated myself for cutting bangs a million times. This was due to the fact that you have to wash your hair everyday and blowdry it – two things I barely have time for in the morning- and the humid weather in The Netherlands are not very supporting the decision for this haircut either. Moreover, the weather in The Netherlands is very humid which does not have the best effect on your hair. All of these factors stop me from going for bangs, though there is still something very alluring to it.. Do you think I should go for it?
Several years ago when I had a relationship with my Chinese ex-boyfriend I had every week the best Chinese food. One of the best things are dumplings: cooked or fried balls of dough that may include meat, fish, vegetables or sweet. My ex-mother in law told me that I could get the recipe if I would marry her son…Unfortunately, that didn’t work out. However, I’ve found delicious dumplings somewhere else and that is at Eethuis Bij Bao, an authentic Chinese restaurant at the Pannekoekstraat in Rotterdam. I can honestly tell you that this is the best Chinese restaurant in Rotterdam: the place is small and cosy and you get the feeling that you’re almost sitting inside the kitchen. There’s is an open kitchen (I like!) and the place is always filled with Chinese people which means that it must be good! So much better than all those all-you-can-eat barns… The menu is extensive and contains typical traditional dishes from the region of Beijing. If your love is just as great for Chinese food as mine, then you should visit Bij Bao. Those who are vegetarians will also have a great time. Also good to know: this place is perfect when you’re on a budget!

It’s been two months since I broke up with my fiance and although I feel better than I had expected, I still feel torn apart. They say that it takes at least the half of the length of your relationship to get over it. Well, that means in my case that it would take three years…However I’m not the type of person who sees herself as a victim of the situation. Instead, I continue with my life. But I can’t deny, what has happened remains a scary thing. I mean, when I met him I never felt something so strong. He was my lover and my best friend and I saw my future with him. When the truth came out I had the feeling that he didn’t even recognize the way he hurted me. And I still have that feeling. Why wasn’t I enough for him? It’s crazy how love works and slams you. When you love someone, you do anything for that person. You give everything that even sometimes you lose sight of your own limits. Often love is compared to drugs. And that I think, my dear readers, is a very good comparison. Still many times I think: I can’t and don’t want without him, my love. Thats why it feels now like I checked into rehab. Sometimes I’m afraid that I’m not able to give myself to another, in the way that I gave myself to him. But that, I believe, is a matter of time. Yesterday my friend sent me a video of Trent Shelton, who is famous for his motivational speeches and words of wisdom on social media and there was one sentence that he said that sticks to me: “Nobody can break your heart more than once without your permission.” That is the truth. What does it bring me to think about how he could be or should be? To think about all the possibilities? When I look back at his actions, I see that it’s not likely that he’s going to change. I can’t change him and I don’t want to. I hope that I will not become too cynical. However, my-little-pony-world view on love is forever gone. Love means hard work and I hope that one day I will meet someone who is willing to work his ass off to make it work. Until then it’s time to focus on myself and to take care of my own heart.

The benefit of having small breasts is that you can buy lingerie everywhere. This is different when you have a big cup size. Take for example my best friend: she has beautiful, but big breasts. I hear her often complain that it is difficult to find beautiful and good quality bra’s. They are or too expensive or too granny-a-like. No, for that matter, I’m happily satisfied with my small cup. This was different when I was younger. I was trying hard to make them look big by wearing push up bra’s all the time. However, when growing up, you learn to accept your body with all its flaws and perfections.
Last Friday I was shopping in Amsterdam and I saw these cute and sexy triangle bra’s at Monki. I guess they do not offer the best support for your breasts since there is no bracket in. However, for me this is not a problem and I think it looks really hot. Especially the ones with allover lace which are perfect for a date night!
