What I Ate Wednesday | 6 MONTHS PREGNANT

Hey everyone! It's been a long time since I blogged and I've started missing it a lot lately, so I'm going to try and slowly get back into it. I thought I would start again with this What I Ate blog post, although you might have seen the meals on my youtube channel already if you follow me there. I was gonna post it last Wednesday, but I completely forgot. Can I blame the pregnancy brain for that?! Haha! :) And - well - you can't post a What I Ate Wednesday on a Friday...it's just unnatural, haha! Hope you enjoy it!


BREAKFAST - 7 a.m.

For breakfast I had quite a simple but filling option: oatmeal with a banana, some blueberries and chia seeds on top. It's one of my favourite breakfasts and I basically just throw in there whatever fruit we currently have in the house. I also took my prenatals (I take the Natalvit ones) and I had a latte macchiato on the side.


SNACK - 11 a.m.

Since getting pregnant I discovered that I can't go as long between meals, so around this time I either have to have a snack or have my lunch early. I get so hungry by 11 a.m. that you would think I haven't eaten in ages. If I have my lunch too late I will get really lightheaded and dizzy, so I try to avoid that by eating more frequently throughout the day. For today's snack I had a Nakd bar, the ginger bread kind. I can't say that I liked this one very much, so I only had a few bites of it. I've also tried the apricot type and I much prefer that one.


LUNCH - 1 p.m.

On this day I had a panini with ham and cheese, which I toasted in a panini maker/electric grill. I love these sesame seed breads, they're so delicious and they're perfect for my paninis. On the side I had some cucumber and cherry tomatoes.


SNACK - 3:30 p.m.

Yes, I had another snack later on...I feel like I'm constantly snacking on something these days. I had about 5-6 pistachios and two oatmeal cookies.


DINNER - 6:30 p.m.

For dinner I didn't really feel like cooking something too complicated, so I just went with a simple pasta dish. It's basically penne pasta with tomato sauce and cheese sprinkled on top. Super simple and quick!


SNACK - 9 p.m.

I had to have a late night snack, because I was actually still feeling a bit hungry and didn't want to wake up in the middle of the night with a growling stomach. So I had an apple with a spoonful of peanut butter, a bit of pineapple and two of those oatmeal cookies. I try to keep my snacks semi-healthy, although some days they're basically just chocolate or something sweet. 

That's about it for today's meals! I hope you enjoyed this blog post. Let me know if you did, so that I know if I should do more or not. Have a great day!

WE'RE EXPECTING A BABY!!!



We're so excited!!! We're expecting a baby this October! I am also really happy to be finally announcing it, as we wanted to wait until after the first trimester passed. I'm so happy to become a mommy, I feel like I've been waiting for this moment my entire life.

We found out I was pregnant on Valentine's Day and I can't believe I'm already 3 and a half months pregnant. Time is really flying by. The first trimester was a bit difficult, although I kinda expected that. Thankfully that's over and I do feel like a lot of the symptoms are getting better. If you want to know more details about each week of my pregnancy, you can head over to my Youtube channel, where I'll be doing updates throughout the pregnancy. There's already a few videos about it, in case you're interested. I know I certainly love watching this type videos to see the experiences of other women. 

All in all, it's been a great start of the year for us and we can't wait to meet our little one already!!!

Monochrome Checked Shirt | What I Wore



After quite a long break from blogging, I'm slowly trying to get back into the swing of things. Thank you all for bearing with me! Today's outfit is quite a monochromatic one, aside from the dusty pink bag (from Pull&Bear). I love wearing this checked shirt that I got from H&M. It's quite a baggy fit, so I like tucking the front of the shirt into jeans, as I think it looks the most flattering. I paired it with a pair of black skinny jeans (also from H&M) and my black suede ankle boots (from Deichmann). For accessories I went with a golden charm necklace and a small  golden bangle bracelet, both of them from H&M. Finally, I've been wearing a lot this bag together with a fluffy key chain.

First Day of Spring | What I Wore

pink-coat-spring-outfit

Coat: Reserved  |  Trousers: Zara  |  Boots: Deichmann  |  Bag: Pull&Bear  |  Fluffy key-chain: H&M  |  Sunglasses: Reserved

Welcome back to my blog! I took a little break from blogging for a few weeks, because everything has been a bit hectic with work and general life things... But I am back! And now that spring has finally decided to come around, I am really excited to try new outfits and ditch all the chunky-knit sweaters. I am so happy to be waking up (almost) everyday to sunshine and warm weather. I cannot wait to pull out of the closet the lighter layers and to play around with spring outfits. 

For today's outfit, I am wearing my favourite coat - one that I got from Reserved. I've been wearing it almost everyday and I love it. I paired it with a similarly coloured scarf that I got from my mom and some sunglasses that are also from Reserved - finally time for sunnies! The trousers that I'm wearing are actually a pair of thick leggings and I really like their pattern. For shoes, I went with a pair of above-the-knee boots and, finally, my bag is the one that I wrote a whole blogpost about. I am loving the metal ring trend with the bags, which has been going around lately (at least in the Instagram world) and I was really happy to find a very affordable bag in that style.

Have a wonderful spring!

The Metal Ring Bag Trend | 3 Alternatives to the Chloe Bag


My Instagram feed (and I'm guessing yours too, if you follow any fashion bloggers) has been filled in the last few months with the new Chloe bag design, which I believe is the designer bag that pretty much introduced the whole metal ring trend. I don't follow all trends, but this is one of those trends that I've been swooning over. I'm not sure what exactly it is about this bag design, but everyone seems to love it as well, so I know I'm not alone.
