About this blog

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

Koi fish, bonsai trees & an oasis of serenity… Japanese gardens are definitely my favourite gardens in the world! The one I visited in Den Haag is only opened during 2 specific periods of the year (in Spring en Autumn season), which means I carefully had to plan my trip. Located in the middle of the big park of Clingendael, this garden is a must-visit if you want to spot beautiful autumn colors and get the feeling like you’re in Japan for a moment…
