I ran my second half marathon 2 weekends ago and I’m so proud of myself because not only broke a personal record, I also finished in less than 2 hours which was my goal! My exact time was 1:56:51, which made me the 1,881st person to finish out of 25,000! Can you imagine how awesome that feels? Continue reading

Training for #werunsf


IMG_0881

In 5 weeks I’m running the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Ever since I heart about this race I’ve been wanting to actually run it. The last 2 editions I would sit behind my phone on race days and check out the hashtags of the race so I could see how everything looked and which price the winners would get.  Continue reading

10 miles: A new milestone


10m 2 10m 3

Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction.

As you guys know, I’m following this running schedule that I set up a couple of weeks ago. In December and January I did a great job on following this schedule, but for the last 3 weeks I was first injured and than sick, so I really couldn’t run. Last Monday I started working out again and let me tell you, it was so hard to even just run 3 miles. I felt so out of shape!

I kept going through with the schedule though and in the weekend I ran so much. On Saturday I ran 8 miles and on Sunday I ran 10 miles! It was the first time I ran that far! For my Belgian followers, this is 16 km! I ran it in 1:24:50, which is a pretty good time I think. I want to run the half marathon I’m training for in 1:50:00. I think that’s going to be pretty hard for me still, but I have 11 more weeks to train for that. I’m just telling you guys this, not to make you feel bad about yourself or to make it look like I’m perfect in what I’m doing. No, I’m telling you guys this because I’m a human, just like everyone else, who loves cupcakes and pizza and who actually has a hard time to stay in shape and to be healthy. Yet, even though it’s hard, I went through with it, and I’m motivated to keep on running the extra mile, until I’m fully satisfied. Continue reading

My blog used to be more of a fashion blog some months ago but since I don’t live in Belgium anymore and I don’t have my little sister to shoot my outfits, I didn’t have the chance to continue doing that, so my blog became more of a photography/travel blog. Sometimes I still post my outfits on Instagram in the form of a selfie. I thought it might be nice for the fashion followers among you to get the details of some of those outfits. Continue reading

#OOTD: Nike Performance pro printed sports bra + workout essentials

Hi everyone,

Today i wanted to share some of my workout essentials with you!

1. Sports bra:
For me a sports bra is a must have for women who like to work out! It’s important to keep everything in its place and when wearing one you don’t feel anything bouncing which is great! Also it gives better support to your boobs, which will make them look better and that’s why we work out right?!
