Welcome on my blog! I’m a Dutch LL.M. student, in love with photography, salsa and traveling the world with my camera.

• Happy sunday y’all 💛 // A quick life-update: your girl started working this week! After having enjoyed some time off after I handed in my thesis, I’ve been busy applying for jobs. As some of you know, it can be quite a tiring process, so staying motivated is key. I recently happened to stumble upon a really nice company and after a view interviews, I received a job offer! A new chapter of my life has started now, and I’m looking forward to all the good things & exciting challenges it will bring 😊 • | Leiden, The Netherlands
• Gloomy days in the city.. ☁️ // So how I created this: Step 1. Search for a nice spot where you can capture some movement (in this case: the birds were my models🐦). Step 2. Turn on the slo-motion setting for the camera on your phone. Step 3. Wait for the perfect moment, hold your phone steady & start recording! I really enjoy shooting this way, since it makes it seem like a picture is actually coming to life ☺️ • | Amsterdam, The Netherlands
• Nothing above this. ❤️ • | Brouwersgracht, Amsterdam
• Changing colors.. 🍃😌 // Last week, I’ve commited myself to a ‘social media detox’. That’s right: for seven days I voluntarily deleted Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat from my phone. The main reason? I was spending too much time on social media in my opinion, and I was curious if this little experiment would have any positive effects. After going through some withdrawal during the first few days (what to do during those super boring moments 🤔), I realized I had a lot of time left for more relevant activities & I wasn’t easily distracted anymore. It’s crazy to realize how much time we spend staring at our screens nowadays. Last week was definitely an eye-opener for me. Have you ever tried something similar or are you using certain apps to track your phone usage? Curious to know! • | Leiden, The Netherlands
• Into the forest... 🍁😌 // In my opinion, Autumn is the best season for long strolls in the forest. There’s just something magical about the ocean of golden brown leaves 💛 | Leidse Hout, Leiden
• As some of guys probably have seen in my IG-stories, my graduation ceremony took place this week. 🎓 In September, I already knew I obtained my LL.M. degree, but after Tuesday it finally feels official. Thank you all for the heart-warming messages & support ❤️ It’s time for a new chapter in my life! And ofc, I’ll keep taking pictures, since it’s one of the things that make me most happy 😊• | Clingendael, Den Haag

I recently visited my all-time favorite city again! As you probably know, London has got a special place in my heart, so I was super excited to back for a few days. During my stay, it kind of felt like I returned back to my second hometown. Places I’ve been to multiple times can become less exciting after a while, but this isn’t the case with this city. As the famous saying goes: “when a man is is tired of London, he is tired of life”. Amen to that.




Of course, a typical British afternoon-tea had to be included. Danisha and I went to the super fancy Wallace Collection. This national museum is home to one of Europe’s finest collections of works of art, paintings and furniture. The restaurant which is part of the building is painted in pastel pink color and is the perfect place to have a nice lunch -or in our case- plenty of sandwiches, pastries and tea!

One particular area that couldn’t be left out is the West-End. This area is situated in Central and West London and is well-known as the commercial and entertainment centre of the city. Strolling through the famous Oxford street, Regent street and Piccadilly circus always gives me an adrenaline kick. The streets are buzzing & full of life, which makes it a pleasure making your way around town during all times of the day here.


Lots of love,

Manisha ♥
