Gili Air

During our snorkeling trip we made a stop to have lunch at Gili Air, another amazing island part of the Gili’s. To me Gili Air has a more relaxed vibe; I barely saw any tourists and it was just very calm. We had lunch at a local restaurant and it was AMAAAAZING! Oh how I love Indonesian food! The (as I call them) corn cookies are my favorite but also the oleh oleh (the cream stuff with veggies on the left) was sososo good! I tried having oleh oleh again when we were back in Bali but didn’t find it 🙁 But once again; amazing experience!

Gili T

So freaking amazing! After a pretty long, bumpy and wavy trip we arrived at Gili Trawangan. It’s sooo amazing I don’t have words for it. Transfer on the island is only by bike or horse and the place gives me such a relaxed feeling. It’s crazy to be here honestly. I want to stay forever. We arrived pretty late so we checked in to our villa, hopped on our bikes and cruised the island a little bit before going out for dinner. Tomorrow we’re gonna go snorkeling! I can’t waiiiiitt!

FINNS

Another day another beach club! Today we went to Finns, a pretty luxurious place with once again great service, food and drinks. I do have to say I really think the music was too loud. Sometimes I spoke to my boyfriend on a normal tone and he couldn’t even hear me. Also it distracts me too much from my book haha. At places like these it’s normal you have to spend a certain amount of rupiahs so you don’t have to pay for the beds. But honestly if you get a lunch and 2 drinks per person, you will easily hit that amount!

Mrs. SIPPY

WE’RE IN BALIIIIII!! We had a loooong day of travels (Emirates flights via Dubai) but yazzzzz it’s chill time! Today we went to Mrs. Sippy, a beach/pool club in Seminyak. The service was great, the beds were nice and just the whole atmosphere was very convenient. Oh and of course I couldn’t help myself from doing a handstand on the 5m diving platform. Didn’t jump off of it though 😅

I was on a horse!

Wowwww my God! The last time I sat on a horse was probably around 15 years ago on a birthday party of a friend from school. I never really trusted horses, because I always thought they will do whatever they want whatever they want. But I kind of overcame this fear yesterday! Also sitting on him without a saddle was quite the challenge! This horsie wasn’t that happy unfortunately.. But we gave the owner money so he can feed him. And I told him he has to be nice to the horse otherwise I will come and get him :). And of course we gave him a lot of cuddles!!

My beautiful dress is from XQUISITE FASHION NL ✨ More pics of the dress + a 20% off code coming soon!

Vanilla swim @ Valencia beach

Uhmm new fav bikini alert!! This Rhoda set from Vanilla Swim is to die for. I’ve honestly never felt any fabric of a bikini being so incredibly soft, plus the fit is so nice. I love the small bottoms to minimize tanlines! 

We had a great time being tourists from Amsterdam on our bikes (rented at Verrassemd València) yesterday! Had lunch at the beach and just biked around. So gooood.

Get it here!

Thankful and acceptance

These two woman mean so much to me. Of course my mom, who has always done everything for me, the one I can (and always do) tell everything to. And Karlijn, one of my best friends, who is always there for me whenever I want to nag about whatever, but is also always there for me whenever I need a shoulder to cry on and will always be honest. Thanks for being in my life.

Here we were enjoying another day at the beach with the three of us. Mom and Karlijn clicked pretty well, I barely spoke a word that day hahaha. Love you.

Oh and by the way: take a closer look to the left picture of the two next to each other. Also I have ‘belly rolls’. I feel like a lot of girls see me as an example of how they would like their body to look. Of course in a way it’s a compliment, but I am far from perfect. I think everyone is beautiful in their own way. Especially girls always see something to improve, also me. It’s more about acceptance. Honestly I’m at my heaviest I’ve ever been right now and even though I would like to loose a little bit of weight and tone up some more, I have accepted the ‘state’ my body is in now and I’m making the best of it! I hope you do too, you are beautiful the way you are 💙<3

I feel like everytime I post I’m talking about how nice the weather is haha. I think it’s very hard to make pictures when the weather isn’t nice so I guess that’s why. Here I spend another lovely beach day at Safari Lodge in Zandvoort, one of my favorite spots to hang out when the weather is good. Unfortunately these pictures were taken 2 weeks ago and it isn’t as sunny and warm anymore but it’s not too bad. I hope summer isn’t over yet!

Jumpsuit – Subdued

Ubuntu

It’s finally summertime! If only days could be like this every day! I would be so so happy haha. Me and my friend Stephanie went to Zandvoort and shot some pics at ubuntu beach which is a crazy perfect place to take insta photos! The vibe is also amazing. And oh my these sandals I’m wearing are sooo old and destroyed. I got them 3 or 4 years ago at Primark and I walked in them for days during the summers. They are still cute even though they are not very neat looking anymore haha.
