New York Vlog

I just spent the past week in New York and of course I had to hit you up with a vlog of my trip. This is a loooong one. So I hope you enjoy it. I did plenty of sightseeing, did some shopping and just walked around a lot. I spent a good 6 full…

Top 5 Travel palettes

When traveling, you don’t want to pack your bulkiest, biggest palettes. At least I do not. Whenever I travel, I like keeping my makeup simple and easy to do. Whenever I travel, I am usually a tourist and so I am always itching to go out there and explore. Often wearing makeup doesn’t even make…

Lookbook fall 2015: city trip

Fall is my favorite time of year for heading on a city trip. This year, I unfortunately didn’t have the opportunity to do so as I already went on a massive trip across the US last summer. But for the past few years I went to London in the fall season. The weather is mild…

Interrail #7: Copenhagen

My 9th and final stop of the trip was Copenhagen. Together with Barcelona this city was high on my ‘to visit’ list (especially after watching Borgen earlier this year) and so I stayed here for 3 days so I’d really have some time to see the city. By this time I was getting quite exhausted,…

Interrail #6: Vienna, Prague, Berlin

At the halfway point of my trip and I was about to visit 3 different cities in less than a week. From Venice, I set off on a day filled with traveling to the Austrian capital of Vienna. It took me straight through the Alps and made for some fairytale inspiring views. I traveled from…

Interrail #5: Milan & Venice

Eight days into my trip and I would be swopping lovely Spain for lovely Italy. Would you believe me if I said that I had never been to Italy before? Well I hadn’t and I can tell you: I’m in love! A Rome trip has quickly gotten kicked up my travel wishlist in any case….

Interrail #4: Barcelona

My third destination on this trip was Barcelona. This would be the first destination where I would stay for more than a day or two. Since January there is one TGV train which takes you from Paris to Barcelona in 6.5 hours. The journey to Barcelona went well. I left for Gare de Lyon well…

Interrail #3: Brussels & Paris

My first two destinations were Brussels and Paris. I had visited both cities before. In Brussels I never got to do the touristy thing and Paris was simply on my: I’d like to go there again list. Hence, both cities made the cut. In total, I spent one day in Brussels and two in Paris….

Interrail trip #2: what I pack

In yesterday’s post I told you that for my 22 day trip I was going to try to pack as lightly as possible. I wanted to take my large, 23.5 liter Herschel bag (click for a full review of the bag) and a smaller backpack that I bought at Forever 21 2 years ago. The…

Summer travel plans

I’m so excited for today’s post! I’ve literally been dying to finalize my summer travel plans and to tell you all about it. Last week I finally did it and made all the arrangements for one of my most daring trips yet. The reason why it’s daring is because a) I’ll be by myself (which…

London 2013 in pictures

Beware the picspam! Rather than telling you what I did when I was in London, I figured I’d simply post a chuckload of pictures so you get an idea of the trip. I did almost everything I had planned I wanted to do, so read my plans for London post if you don’t know. The…

Plans for my London trip

It’s fall break and for the first time this year I am finally going on vacation. That’s right! Apart from a study trip in April, I haven’t done any traveling this year. Mainly because I was busy finished up my thesis I couldn’t go and by the time summer arrived I had made so many…

Upcoming trips #2: USA & Canada

As you may remember I took a short trip to London in February earlier this year. However, I have also been planning a slightly more major trip for the past couple of months. You could already read about it in my very first post of this year, as I will be taking a 2.5 week…

Road Trip Music

I love listening to music while I’m on the go, but some music just makes for a better travel companion than others. This post is on my top picks of songs that make me want to hit up highways in a car with an open top. It just makes me wish that I actually had…

London 2012: Day 4

Ah my final day in London! This day was by far the laziest of all. I was so tired from all the walking I had done the days before that I decided to really take it easy. I slept in, checked out of my hotel and left my luggage at the hotel and headed out…

London 2012: Day 3

Day 3 of my trip would be devoted to more walking and plenty of shopping. I hit up Oxford Street and Soho and ticked off plenty from my fashion wish list to make a shoplog once I get back. So keep your eyes peeled for that but now let me just tell you what I…

London 2012: Day 2

Day two in the English capital turned out to be a great day. The weather was amazing, with a slight breeze but plenty of sunshine making it perfect weather for walking. And walk I did. I set off from my hotel around 9 AM. My first stop was the Twinings tea shop on The Strand….

Upcoming trips #1 – London

I started this year with an overview of what the new year would bring for me. One of my plans includes doing some traveling again. By now I have arranged most of my trips and so I thought it would be fun to inform you about them: what hotel I’ve picked out, what I plan…

Places I’d Like to Visit

I know, I know. I only just got back, but especially at times like this I think up my list of places I would still like to visit some day in the (near) future. Most of these places have been on my wish list for a while and I don’t know if I’ll ever get…

Study Trip to Edinburgh

After 8 days of being in London, I left in the early morning to catch a train, then a plane, then another train to hop onto a bus to get onto a boat for the rest of May 9th. Because work didn’t want me to travel from London to Edinburgh straight away I had to…

London Days 6, 7 & 8

After 5 days of touristy things and some sightseeing, my final days in London would be spent shopping. My friend left London in the middle of the night to catch a flight to Italy. That gave me plenty of time to scour the town for make up, clothes and of course, shoes. I arrived at…

London Days 3, 4 & 5: ITV Studios, Greenwich & Tate Gallery

And on it goes. Like the title indicates I went to Greenwich, The Tate Gallery but I also went to a TV show taping. Here’s a nice pictures from Tower Bridge to get you warmed up: Day 3 was a special day, though to some this may be quite dreary since all I did was…

London Days 1 & 2: Walking, V&A, Harrod’s & Hamlet

Today is already my 6th day in London, but I haven’t had the time to write anything yet. Until now! As you may know by now, it’s not the first time that I’m visiting this city so therefore I don’t have many pictures, but I did do lots of stuff already. Here’s what days 1…

London & Edinburgh: Here I Come!

On Wednesday I finally got the news I had been waiting for! I get to go on a study trip to Edinburgh as a supervisor for work. I have been to Edinburgh before and it’s a lovely city so I’m totally stoked. I had already planned on going to London in May and I knew…

Blog Challenge Day 20: A photo of a place you’ve been to

Paris! Oh how I love thee! Perhaps a town you wouldn’t quickly associate me with, but I have been to Paris several times. Mostly, because I used to have a friend who lived there and I would go over once every 6 months to visit her and vice versa. It’s been a while since I…

Blog Challenge Day 14: my favorite vacation

As long as I know I get to go somewhere, and then especially to the USA, I already know I’m gonna love it. Going to new places and exploring them, is another thing I love doing. To mark my transition from student to hard-working woman in 2008, I decided to go on a trip of…
