28. When life gives you lemons


For today’s post I thought it would be a good idea to explain the name of my blog – About life and lemons – a bit more. I always had the feeling it was pretty clear until I had to explain the saying to my colleagues a few weeks ago because none of them knew what it meant.

And since it was completely new to them, I might be to you as well!

So About life and lemons comes from the saying “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. Meaning: Add some sugar to the sour and bitter things in life to turn them into something sweet and positive.

26. Job hunt prepping


Hi all! My post came up one day later as planned, but I’m currently on vacay in the Belgian Ardennes and here everything is à l’aise. French countryside influences and all.

If you read my last post you might have read that I’m on the lookout for a new job. I’m determined to find my perfect fit and truly hope some exciting opportunities will come up soon. In case you know of any, do let me know. You will be rewarded with eternal thanks and chocolate chip cookies in return ;).

One of the things most people probably stress about when going on a job interview is what to wear. So today I’m sharing with you some of my views on job hunt prepping!

25. The superhero pose


“There’s a scientific study that shows that if you stand like this in superhero pose for just five minutes before a job interview, a big presentation or a really hard task, you will not only feel more confident, you will perfrom measurably better.”
– Amelia Shepherd, Grey’s Anatomy.

Well hell yes, I did it. I just quoted Grey’s Anatomy. Not because I like what she’s saying, but even more important is the fact that it’s actually true.

24. Floral Freedom ♡


Of all the clothes I wear, the loose and comfortable items are usually my favourites. Especially on lazy sunny Sundays.
A while ago I bought this floral dress at Stien Boetiek in Turnhout. A lovely little boutique by a former classmate of mine. Recently she also launched a webshop, which is great news because now I can scroll through the new collections whenever I like! Make sure to visit the webshop

Now, back to the dress – or shirt, ooor shirtdress – I got it a few months ago already, but up until now it was just too cold to wear it. Luckily, springtime has finally decided to show its face and I was able to bring it out last weekend! HOORAY!

21. Party proof!


Today we celebrate the last day of the year. The last day of 2016 and all the good things it has brought to us. We make our new year’s resolutions for 2017, but before we get started on them, we party one last time.

We eat too much, we drink too much, but while doing so, we make sure we look damn fine!
