How I stay positive in my life

Hi friends! I have been sitting down facing my computer all day and thinking how I could write this without sounding condescending, and figured out I would just type and erase as I go. Let’s see what we end up with! 🙂

One of the things you might not know about me, even though I think it might be easy to guess considering I am always smiling, is I am a very positive person. I am a glass-half-full kind of girl, and (…)



Coffee Date: Things I wish I knew before starting a blog

It’s been a little longer than I hoped for since the last time I sat down and started writing a Coffee Date post. Life has been busy and I wanted this one to be good so I decided to take my time! I receive multiple messages every week asking me for tips and tricks to start your own blog, so I figured I would put it all into an article! I am by no means an expert at this, I am just starting out and there are many other people who are doing a far better job than I am – BUT I guess it won’t hurt to share my side of things 🙂

I am not sure how to start this, but as I mentioned before I want to turn this blog into more than just sharing outfits (don’t worry though, there will still be plenty of that!) this year, and was thinking what would be the first “deeper” post I would write about. Then I just realized, why not start at the beginning, the life I found in Canada (or more specifically how to deal with completely changing your life).

A little background info about me: as some of you might already know, I live in Canada at the moment but actually come from Belgium, in Europe. I was born and grew up there until I was 18 and then was sent (I wasn’t entirely on board with this decision and went back and forth about it with my parents until finally agreeing) to Canada to learn English after my last year of high school. It is somewhat of a tradition in …
