Bikini from Imagine by Kim

Top and short from H&M

 

ENG: yesterday I went to the beach with my friends.  I was Just tanning, chilling, all the usual things you do at a beach day. I got really tanned and tomorrow I’m going to another beach with other friends. It has been a chilled past couple of days, so I really can’t complain. Xo

NL: gisteren ben ik met wat vriendinnen naar het strand geweest. We hebben lekker gechillt, lekker bakken en gewoon alle standaard dingetjes die je doet als je een strand dagje hebt! Ik ben zo bizar bruin geworden en morgen ga ik nog een keer. De afgelopen dagen waren super chill, dus ik mAg echt niet klagen. Xo

Hello perfect Shorts!

Okay so I have this problem with denim Shorts. My thighs are not in proportion with my behind so I’m not feeling the bums out short- shorts. I can say that my denim shorts from the past two years have reached their comfort limit. It’s not that I don’t fit them, but I don’t think it looks flattering.

So finding new denim shorts was a bit of a task. I tried the ones at Zara and Forever 21, but they were all “nahh”. Long story short; go to h&m! I found the perfect length ones which covers your bum and are not too long at the front. I am so happy with these ones that I bought them in both colors and a dark one which was also good. The short hunt is done. Now the sun needs to appear more! X

My 25th birthday

Processed with VSCO with j5 preset

ENG: Hey girls and guys! It’s been a while since my last update. Last week I reached the age of 25 and my BF(f) turned his house in to a little party lounge. I honestly had the best time, but that was all because of the fun people who came to celebrate with me. I remember when my friends turned 25+ I always thought they were so grown up and have life figured out. But maybe that was just a naive thought of the younger me. I got a super fun job where I’m creatively free and learning tons, I got a good group of friends and so on. Since I got that mindset of letting things (for example half of my wardrobe) and people go, I have more space in my head. Now that when I have so called ”troubles” on my mind, I can detect more easily where it comes from. What I want to say is that my birthday was an extra boost of realizing stuff (ha, see what I did there) and knowing how blessed I am.  The little things in life are really the greater things! Xo May

NL: Hallo allemaal! Het is alweer een tijdje terug sinds mijn laatste update. Afgelopen week was ik jarig en heb ik mijn verjaardag gevierd. Mijn BF(f) toverde zijn huisje om in een mini party lounge. Ik heb echt de tijd van m’n leven gehad, maar dat kwam vooral door mijn vrienden en familie. Ik herinner me dat toen sommige vrienden 25+ werden, ik altijd dacht dat zij zó volwassen waren en hun leven op orde hadden. Dat was misschien de jongere naïeve May. Ik heb een super leuke baan, waar ik creatieve vrijheid heb en veel van leer, heb een goede vriendengroep en ga zo maar door. Sinds ik een mindset heb waar ik dingen (zoals mijn halve kledingkast) en mensen loslaat, heb ik meer ruimte in mijn hoofd. Nu wanneer ik negatieve gedachten en vibes heb, kan ik makkelijker terugkoppelen waar het vandaan kom. Wat ik dus eigenlijk wil zeggen is dat ik op m’n verjaardag er extra stil bij stond wat het leven mij heeft gebracht en geeft. Het zijn echt de kleine dingen in het leven die het doen! Xo May

ENG: What an incredible weekend did I have! I was invited by Jennie to join her for an influencers trip weekend in Disneyland Paris. The main focus of the trip was that we we’re getting sneak peek for the half-marathon that will be held in September. This will be the second edition of the run in Disneyland. There are three runs: the 5k (nocturnal, followed by a private party), 10k (through the Disneyland universe) and the half marathon. You can find more detailed information here. It was such an amazing experience so if you love to run this is something I would highly recommend doing!

NL: Ik had echt een fantastische twee dagen afgelopen weekend! Ik mocht met Jennie mee naar Disneyland Parijs voor een influencers trip. De focus van deze trip was dat we een sneak peek kregen voor de halve marathon dat daar wordt gehouden in September. Je kunt meedoen aan drie verschillende runs, namelijk de 5k (in de avond met een prive feest na afloop), de 10k en de halve marathon. Je kunt hier meer informatie vinden. Het was echt een geweldige ervaring, dus als je van hardlopen houdt, kan ik je dit zeker aanraden! Bekijk mijn korte vlog van de ”run”.

The Chainsmokers concert at AFAS Live backstage

IMG_5024

So last friday must have been also one of those: ”OH,MAY,GOD moments in my life”. I wanted to go to The Chainsmokers, but I couldn’t get tickets because it was sold out. Also no one responded to my shout outs on Facebook, insta story and snapchat if they wanted to go with me… so I was like okay then I’ll try to get two tickets somewhere and see who I can drag along. Still at the day of the concert, I had no result in buying tickets and then Baggi helped me out by telling that I could go along with him. You can imagine how happy I was! Long story short, I ended up enjoying the show from backstage and I partied with the guys and other fun people!

#ONMAYBODY: Shirt from Imagine by Kim

ENG: Honestly, I do not know if I’m the person you should ask music tips. I am one of those who likes a tune and loves a song because of the lyrics. My most played songs in Spotify in 2016 are probably 90% love songs. What else can I say; I’m a sucker for love. The brand Sudio the gave me the Vasa Bla earphones. They are earphones that are wirelessly connected via Bluetooth. That of course is super useful while working out (if I ever do again) and saves a lot of fiddling to get the wires apart. There are two downsides to the Bluetooth earphones and that is that you need to recharge and the music skips sometimes. Furthermore, the sound is really great and here is the list of songs I currently listening to alot.

NL: Eerlijk gezegd weet ik niet of ik de persoon ben waar je muziek tips om moet vragen. Ik ben zo’n persoon die zich naast een leuk deuntje, echt door de tekst laat leiden. Mijn meest gespeelde nummers op Spotify van 2016 bestaat 90% uit liefdesliedjes,  wat kan ik anders zeggen dan: ”I’m a sucker for love”.  Ik ontving van het merk Sudio de Vasa Bla oordopjes. Het zijn oordopjes die draadloos zijn en door bluetooth verbonden wordt. Dat is natuurlijk super handig voor tijdens het sporten (als ik dat ooit weer ga doen) en scheelt hoop gefrutsel om de bedrading uit elkaar te halen. Er zijn wel twee nadelen aan het bluetooth gedeelte van de oordopjes en dat is dat je ze moet opladen en de muziek soms verspringt door de verbinding. Verder is het geluid echt top en hier is de lijst met nummers die ik momenteel veel naar luister:

I Feel It Coming – The Weeknd
Shed A Light – Robin Schulz
Paris – The Chainsmokers
Ignition (Remix) – The Wind and The Wave
City Of Angels – Bynon
Those Days Are Gone – Busted

Personal: My 2016

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 😉 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! 🙏

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
