BARCELONA VLOG

ENG: Better late than never! Here is my Barcelona vlog with Jennie and Wendy. It’s been long I did the Vlogging thing so I forgot to record a lot. It’s in dutch though, ¬†but you can always check for an impression of how life is with me ūüėČ You can find my Barcelona posts here, in case you want to see it again!

NL: Beter laat dan nooit denk ik maar! Hier is mijn barcelona vlog met Jennie en Wendy. Het is al een tijd geleden dat ik heb gevlogd, dus ik was heel veel dingen vergeten te filmen. Nu hebben jullie een impressie hoe vakantie (of gewoon chillen) met mij is haha! Je kunt ook hier mijn Barcelona blog artikelen lezen.

Velvet Dress and Print Tee in the Gothic Town Barcelona

velvet-dress-with-print-tee-1

velvet-dress-with-print-tee-2 velvet-dress-with-print-tee-3 velvet-dress-with-print-tee-4ENG: In Barcelona we stayed at the Gothic Town¬†area.¬†How I’d say to the girls when something looks old: it was quite authentic. There are small streets with buildings with around the height of a 5th floor appartment.

Our Airbnb was really nice located, just 10 minutes away from the beach, Las Ramblas and the El Born. If you are planning to go to Barcelona, I’d recommend this place. Also the host was really sweet and helpful (She killed the cockroach in our room). Just note that you have to get up the stairs, because it’s on the highest floor. Here is the link to the Airbnb.

When it came to my looks, I was already done with summer outfits. We had quite a surprising summer here in The Netherlands, but I didn’t shoot a lot of the outfits, because I wanted to save them up for Barcelona. I bought the T-shirt I am wearing at Pull&Bear and wore it with my favourite velvet dress from Zara. If you know me for a longer time, I always loved wearing¬†band shirts ”looks’ ‘ already. But only from the bands that I listen too, which usually didn’t have that cool band merch haha. So I thought I was totally cool walking around in my Fall Out Boy, Paramore and Tokio Hotel t-shirts in high school. I also bought the fishnet pantyhose at P&B for the extra edgy cool feel. I could wear this summer look also here in the warmer fall days. This was definitely one of my favourite looks! Xo

Today I got a free day, which means I have a me-day. I’m going for a run, clean up my room, organise my closet so I can sort of make a fresh new start for this fall season!

NL: In Barcelona verbleven we in de Gotische wijk. Als iets een oude uitstraling zag zei ik altijd tegen de meiden dat het ”zeer authentiek” was. Je vind daar smalle straten met hoge gebouwen van ongeveer vijf of meer verdiepingen.

Onze Airbnb zat echt goed gelegen, namelijk 10 minuten afstand van het strand, La Rambla en El Born. Als je van plan bent om naar Barcelona te gaan, kan ik je echt deze plek aanraden. De host was ook super lief en behulpzaam (ze had de kakkerlak in onze kamer geplet). Let wel op dat je echt veel trappen op moet, omdat het op de hoogste verdieping zit. Hier vind je de link naar de Airbnb.

Als het om mijn looks ging, was ik eigenlijk al klaar met zomer outfits. We hadden best een goede zomer in Nederland, maar ik heb niet zoveel outfits geschoten. Ik wilde ze natuurlijk beetje opsparen voor Barcelona. De t-shirt die ik draag kocht ik bij Pull&Bear en droeg ik met mijn favoriete velvet jurk van de Zara. De mensen die mij al langer kennen weten dat ik altijd van band shirts hield. Ik droeg ze van mijn favoriete bands die niet zo coole merch hadden. Op de middelbare school dacht ik natuurlijk cool rond te lopen met mijn Paramore, Fall Out Boy en Tokio Hotel shirts. Ook kocht ik de visnet panty bij de P&B voor een extra stoere look. Ik kan deze look ook nog in de warme herfstdagen dragen. Dit was echt een van mij favoriete outfits!

Vandaag heb ik een vrije dag, dat betekend dat ik even een dag voor mezelf heb. Ik ga zo hardlopen, mijn kamer opruimen, klerenkast reorganizeren, zodat ik soort van een frisse start kan maken! Xo

G: Hola! It is my second day in Barcelona.¬†Yesterday¬†we started the day with brunch at Brunch & Cake, got to the airbnb, went to the beach and later on had¬†burgers at Makamaka. They¬†really had the best fries I’ve ever eaten. Today we wanted to go to Parc Guell, but due to waiting issues we didnt stay long and went to the Bunkers del Carmel instead. We had the best view over Barcelona! I can highly recommend it. Now we are chilling a bit and then ready for dinner.

NL: Hola! Het is vandaag mijn tweede dag hier in Barcelona. Gisteren begonnen we de dag met brunch bij Brunch & Cake, gingen naar de airbnb, het strand en aten burgers bij Makaka. Zij hadden daar trouwens echt de beste frietjes die ik ooit heb gegeten!

Vandaag gingen we even naar Parc Guell. We hadden helemaal fotoshoot plannen maar we moesten te lang wachten voor de entree, dus gingen we maar naar de Bunkers del Carmel. Je hebt hier echt het beste uitzicht over Barcelona, dus het is echt een aanrader om hier naartoe te gaan! Nu zijn we even aan het chilllen en gaan zo lekker wat eten en drankjes doen!

Personal: My 2016

Processed with VSCO with j5 preset

2016, 2016, let me start from the begin.

2015 was a crappy year full of personal challenges and heart breaks, so this year had to be a year of avoiding mistakes.

  • First it was time for a little retreat with Jennie to the USA. And oh boy, what a good time we had there at the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and LA. It was a chilled vacation and I’m happy to gain a new friend, one that I was going to spend more time with now and then.
  • I went to great events with my blog. For example I met two girls from the cast of Awkard and Faking It. I’ve became an Nelson Ambassador and went to the big Primark Amsterdam opening.
  • Talking about friends I have lost touch with some, because now I really know done is done. I’ve come to know new people and I treasure all these little moments with them, because maybe at some point I could call them my friends. You are who you are surrounding yourself with, so find good people who lift you up.
  • I started my new job where I have been feeling less stressed. You can say I’m a bit less of a mess ūüėČ I’m so thankful and greatful for this opportunity and hope to get the most out of this journey. So i’d like to thank my girlboss for believing in me.
  • My blog was hacked for a while which lead to me starting over with a clean slate. The sucky part is that I lost my visitors and all my previous updates. On the other hand it means I can now focus on better content again.
  • I also started good with working out but you know how that ends. Once there are more fun things to do like eating with friends. I will find the motivation to start again..
  • In the summer things got a little rough, ive seen someone passed away right in front of me. Yeah that was some heavy stuff. It reminded me of how life can be so fragile and unexpecting. These kinds of things are just never ending.
  • I went to Barcelona with Jennie and Wendy for a little getaway in the sun. That was really fun ‚̧
  • The MTV EMA’s were held in Rotterdam and it was obviously that I needed to go. So I went to the fan audition alone to score a red card carpet ticket for the show. It was one of these moments I felt proud I did something for myself without anyone else.

Did I avoid making mistakes? No, not at all, but I have learned from every choice I made.
So here we are today in 2017. This will be the year of just letting things go. I mean, what ever really happen nobody knows. All I know is that I need to find my inner peace and common ground. With the thought of that the best is yet to come, nothing can bring me down! ūüôŹ

Thank you for reading my blog. These were just some of the points I wanted to share. I wish you all a happy and blessed new year filled with laughter and lots of love.

XO
May

ENG: Time flies when you’re having fun! I just got back from Barcelona with Jennie and Wendy and it was an amazing couple of days. We laughed, we cried (there was a cockroach in our room one night), ate delicious food and took amazing pictures. It was so nice to get out and I really felt like I was on vacation. No stress and worries about the things back home.. a-w-e-s-o-m-e. I made a Barcelona stash, so you will probably see lots of sunny pictures upcoming posts. XO
NL: De tijd vliegt waneer je het leuk hebt! Ik ben net teruggekomen uit Barcelona met Jennie en Wendy. De afgelopen dagen waren echt geweldig. We hebben ontzettend veel gelachen, gehuild (er zat een avond een kakkerlak in onze kamer), hadden lekker gegeten en fantastische foto’s geschoten. Het was echt fijn om er even tussenuit te gaan, het voelde echt als een vakantie. Geen stress en zorgen over alle dingen van thuis.. ja, geweldig gevoel is dat! Ik¬†heb echt een stash gemaakt met foto’s van de vakantie, dus je zult deze veel zien aankomende artikelen. XO

A little get away

ENG: I have been a bit MIA for the past few days (not on snapchat) but i have been working and getting a bit sick, which sucks! That’s why I decided to wear my new knit jumper last monday from Chicwish. I just love the stuff that they have and so happy to collaborate with them for a while now.

Anyways, I am packing up my stuff and getting ready for bed soon because I have an early flight to Barcelona with Jen & Wen! I think the sun will help with my beginning flu. Hopefully I will be able to take lots of cool pictures and relax to the fullest. I will take a vlog camera with me so I can remember this fun trip!
