’she probably thinks she’s pretty, but she’s not, hahah’ ‘Yeah, she acts like she thinks she’s really hot, she's so full of herself it's disgusting '

These are some of the comments I got while i was out and about taking pictures. Two girls walked passed and felt the need to make these rather nasty comments. I stopped what I was doing and asked them what made them feel the need to say things like this. I think I scared them, cause they had no idea i would actually walk over… They looked at each other and said: I dunno?… Now, I could have done and said a lot of hateful things back, cause that would have been the easiest thing I could have done and if I hadn’t changed my mind so much in the last couple of years and still didn’t accept and loved myself, I probably would have. Instead I said, and this was the ONLY thing I said: First of all, SHE has ears and second, the answer to these comments are quit the opposite. You don’t know me and you don’t know my story so before you judge, let me tell you this! SHE has struggled her whole life to love herself and SHE has also been bullied from the age of 6 right up to the end of high school. SHE is also just trying to do something she loves a.k.a blogging and taking pictures, cause SHE is finally at a point in her life where SHE feels god enough about herself to share her struggles with self love, self acceptance, depression, overcoming an eating disorder and what not! I hope you get to a place mentally, where you love yourself enough and feel comfortable with yourself enough that you don’t feel the need to bring others down anymore… ps, have a nice day!

If you love yourself, there is no competition. I started blogging because I would love to help others, cause it's just so sad that there's so many people out there who doubt themselves daily which holds them back from doing what they really want. I'm still guilty of doing this, but writing about it will definitely help to put things in perspective. Even if i can only help one person, that's enough for me. Never be ashamed for who you are, cause you're perfect just the way you are!

There's not many places where my mind finds peace, except for when I'm on a boat or near water. Could be the ocean, could be other open waters, but it just brings me happiness. Especially in times when life seems so chaotic and maybe my life is chaotic, but I just need moments like this so desperately. Sometimes I feel like everything passes by so quickly. Days, weeks, months... I feel a lot of pressure to be successful, whatever it means. Today I succeeded in giving my mind peace and to me, that's a succes🙌🏻 #grateful

I grew up in a city called Leiden. I always love coming back here, cause I have so many memories of this place! As a little girl my mum would take me and my
sister to the market, shopping, just a walk or I'd cycle through it on my way home after school. There literally is no place like home and I feel very blessed that the first couple of years of my life, I got to spend them here. I love being around my family more than anything, they mean the world to me. Not a day goes by that I don't speak to my parents and I often miss them a lot. Haarlem, the city I live, is not very far so I take trips home as often as I can and this was one of those days. Although it's summer, it was chilly every now and then so I was happy I brought my vest along to keep me warm while we strolled around in the city after we had some drinks together. We went to a place called 'Jeanpagne' which is one of my favorite places in town to have a lovely glass of wine & they have amazing food too! I really loved today and for that I'm very grateful..

Lots of love

About a week ago I posted this breakfast on my instastory and a few of you asked how i make these so called 'smoothie bowls'. I like to call them Bliss Bowls, cause they're so amazing and an absolute bliss! Thought it would be fun to put a recipe up for a change! So here it goes!

Please try this at home! It's absolutely yummy and healthy as well!!

1: blend a large banana with frozen blueberries and a little bit of coconut milk

2: you should end up with a very thick smoothie, if not, add more blueberries!!

3: pour into a bowl and decorate with any goodies you like!! Fresh fruit, chocolate, chia seeds, coconut, granola,dates,cacao nibs... anything!

I love going to the market on Saturdays and buy all kinds of fruits a veggies to make recipes like these.

Enjoy summer in a bowl🌈

This weekend me and my family went to The first pizza run ever organized in Europe! It was organized by Magioni, my favorite pizza brand! They gave us VIPizza tickets & It was so much fun! As you can tell by the pictures, we are a little crazy when we all get together 😬
Sunday was all about chilling and just relaxing! Today I have to get back to work again and it's safe to say that's it's gonna be a long long day! Time to get back to healthy food, lots of water & excercise! Festivals are fun, but my body thinks otherwise haha! I'm also waiting for a special summer delivery and I can't wait to share it with you!!! Have an amazing day!

Lots of love,
Eline

Sometimes all you need in life is a touch of color. Weather it's the sun popping out when you least expect it or maybe it's just the color of your bag. Whatever it is, find colors and you will only see more!

Ps, i asked a random person to take some pictures since I don't have a photographer with me at all times, cause who does!!?haha! It was a guy and he looked at me funny at first, he probably thought I was crazy, but oh well! I have no shame! I always think that if you really want something, you'll find a way right!? I think they turned out pretty good! If you look closely, you can see him in the reflection of the window!
