3 Places in Barcelona Lifestyle

A while back, I went to Barcelona with Junes ( the fianceé) for a couple of days. That’s the great thing about living in Europe, some of the best cities are just a 2 hour flight away. Whenever I go on a vacation or a city trip, I usually don’t prepare anything. I do basically zero research, don’t know where I want to go, what...

Rituals perfumes Beauty / Lifestyle

I hate to admit it, but I’m usually a snob when it comes to perfume. I always used to buy the high end brands such as Dior, Guerlain or Chanel, because I thought they were better than the ‘home fragrances’ such as from Zara or Rituals. Don’t get me wrong, Miss Dior is still my all-time favorite fragrance, but recently I’ve had a big change...

Kurdistan Fashion / Lifestyle

First of all, I apologize for being M.I.A. since August. After graduation -oh I forgot to mention I graduated!- I went to visit my home country for a month. It’s something I do every year, or better yet, I have to do. I still have a very strong connection to Iraq (Kurdistan more precisely) and my relatives there. Whenever I skip a year, I feel...

Life Lately turned into Life Evaluation Lifestyle

Whenever I’m occupied with exams or deadlines, I suddenly think of so many great ideas and things I should accomplish in life. Learning how to sew, play the piano, master a new language, become an expert at drawing, are just a few examples of my ambitious plans. All theoretically speaking of course. I always tell myself ‘I will definitely do that after my exams since...

E-Polette glasses Lifestyle

As an architecture student, I’m used to spending hours and hours in front of a computer screen. But I notice that my eyes can’t handle it as well as they used to. After a couple of hours, I feel a lot of pressure behind my eyes, which sometimes results in a headache. As you might also know, I do binge watch tv-shows every once in...

Summer essentials and homemade iced tea Lifestyle

In Belgium, you’re either freezing your bones off or sweating your ass off. I’d prefer the latter any day. So there was a heat wave last week that made it impossible to do anything really. All I did was lie on the couch and read a book or play Pokémon all day. Who said it’s for kids? Being a grownup is overrated anyway, don’t let them...

Life Lately Lifestyle

First of all, let me state the obvious: I’m a terrible liar. In my previous blogpost about henna (read it here) I said I would be posting again regularly, and I did quite the opposite. At the time I thought it would be possible, but life decided otherwise. As you might know, I’m in my last year of my studies and I hope to graduate...

Social media, wanted: the perfect life Lifestyle

Let’s talk social media today, since it has become part of practically everyone’s lives. And more specifically how there is a tendency for online perfection. At first it started with just Facebook. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I was one of those people that only used Facebook to play Farmville. And yes, you might have received some requests for fertilizing my crops or sending...

3 places to visit in Maastricht Lifestyle

I’m sort of a barbarian when it comes to cultural things. Don’t get me wrong, I love art, pretty things and visiting new places. But whenever I go to a new city, I don’t necessarily go see museums or landmarks. It’s not that it doesn’t interest me, it’s more like it doesn’t interest me at that moment. Big difference there. My primarily objective is just...

Milan Haul Beauty / Lifestyle

Milan is probably most known for its endless shopping possibilities. Though I was there to attend a course at the Politecnico di Milano, as you might have seen in my Milan post, I still managed to do some shopping as well. I wasn’t really interested in buying clothing since my suit case was already full when I went to Milan, but I was very keen on...
