Nomination Liebster Award


Hi readers,

I’ve some great news, I’ve been nominated a third time for the Liebster Award! I was nominated by the lovely Sarah from Lifewithlilred. Her blog’s filled with amazing fashion styles (gotta love her outfits) and all kinds of topics you absolutely will enjoy reading. It’s a blog where you can spend hours and hours discovering something new and interesting every single time. Worth a frequent visit if you ask me! 🙂 So Sarah, thanks again for the nomination, really appreciate it and keep blogging girl! ❤

Let’s get started then shall we! First of all, I need to share the rules.

The Rules:

  • Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award.
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you.
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination.
  • Give these blogs 11 questions to answer.

Q & A:

  1. What is your favorite thing that you have done this summer?
    I’ve been to Barcelona with my boyfriend last week. It was our first trip together, so I was beyond excited! We had an amazing time, having him in my life is such a blessing. We did several activities, as you can see in my latest blogposts.
  2. What is your favorite type of weather?
    Well, currently we’re having a heat wave in Belgium and I’m craving the winter season now! But that’s just because it’s too hot now. My favorite type of weather is the kind that allows you to go outside in a t-shirt without being cold – and no rain. And yeah, sunshine of course 😀
  3. Who is a celebrity that you can’t stand?
    Hmm.. can’t really think of anyone. I do have the most respect for Hollywood celebrities who have a stable life, who don’t seek attention of the camera’s constantly and who have a down to earth personality.
  4. What is one of your guilty pleasures?
    Ben & Jerry’s. Chocolate and coffee. Gossip magazines. And I really enjoy the sitcoms Desperate Housewives and Devious Maids.
  5. Do you take pictures on your phone or with a camera?
    Phone, I have an iPhone 6 and the quality’s spectacular.
  6. What is your favorite form of social media?
    Instagram’s still my number one because it’s not too personal, unlike Facebook. You can always search for similar accounts for inspiration and it’s easy to use. You can follow famous people and stay tuned whenever something new’s up with your fav accounts. I also love the filters you can choose from when uploading your pic, they all look good!
  7. Other than blogging, what is your preferred hobby?
    Shopping, reading, cuddling with my bunny Fien, spending time with my boy/friends/family, trying new makeup looks and creating new fashion looks, … I like everything fashion, beauty & lifestyle related. I’m a real home person, I’d rather have a cosy home to stay in then going out every day.
  8. What was the last series that you binge watched?
    At the moment I’m watching Devious Maids, I really like it. I also like Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy and Lost. Not the latest hypes in TV land, I know, but I don’t really do hypes anyway.
  9. What book is on your night stand right now?
    *shame on me* I’m not reading any book right now to be honest, I just came back from our trip to Spain and I need to get back to it. Still searching for a good book though, any recommendations? I like romantic comedy or psychological thriller literature. Nicci French is always a nice choice.
  10. Describe a perfect day out.
    Any day with my boyfriend would do 🙂 We’re really close.
  11. What is your favorite flower?
    Kinda cliché, but I love roses. I just like the layers and the romantic vibe that goes with it. I do prefer the ones with thorns, because I love the imperfections. The idea of good and bad, I guess.

Fun Facts:

  1. I have an irrational fear of smelling bad, so I carry my deodorant like 24/7 with me. I also wear (way too much) perfume, just the idea of me not having a nice scent makes me feel dirty. I use deodorant at least 3 times a day.
  2. I can’t sit still. I’m always busy doing household tasks, working for my blog, working at my job, cleaning, etcetera. That’s why my boyfriend’s the perfect match because he’s able to calm me down and he makes sure that I take a break when necessary.
  3. I’m petite, I’m only 1m63.
  4. I have very annoying feet, whenever I wear new shoes I always suffer from blisters. That’s why I always prefer wearing sneakers, especially Nike, Adidas, Converse and Vans. Those are my favorite brands.
  5. I always carry way too much stuff with me. That’s why I can’t wear a small bag on a daily base.
  6. I’ve been blogging for almost 6 years now.
  7. I started creating websites when I was 9 years old. I learned HTML quite quickly. When I was young I fell in love with the digital world and I even made my own magazines for class at primary school. So it was no surprise that I started blogging at 18.
  8. Before WordPress I had a blog at Blogger, but after three years I felt like I had seen it all. The platform wasn’t offering enough possibilities for a professional setting so I switched and I’m glad I did.
  9. I’m addicted to coffee.
  10. I’ve dyed my hair way too many times. I’ve been blonde, brunette, black, redhead. Name it, I’ve done it.

My Nominees:

My Questions For You:

  1. What’s your favorite food?
  2. Why did you start blogging?
  3. If it was possible, would you like to be a blogger for living?
  4. Name something you really loathe.
  5. Is there something you’d never write about?
  6. What are the most important things in your life?
  7. Which countries would you like to visit someday?
  8. Do you like traveling? Why?
  9. What’s your favorite movie?
  10. Do you have any pets?
  11. If you could only have 4 apps on your phone, which ones would you pick?

Again, a big thank you for Sarah for nominating me for this award. It’s an honor, and it was great to answer her questions. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, make sure to share your opinions in the comment form!

2nd Nomination Sunshine Blogger Award


Dag lieve lezers,

Afgelopen week kreeg ik leuk nieuws te horen: ik ben voor de tweede maal genomineerd voor de Sunshine Blogger Award! Deze keer door Eli, van de fashion & lifestyle blog Elise Tricarico. Haar blog is echt super, bomvol leuke artikels over mode, beauty producten en haar belevenissen. Ken je haar blog nog niet? Breng dan zeker eens een bezoekje, want het is het ontdekken waard! Met veel enthousiasme kijk ik altijd uit naar een nieuw artikel dat ze publiceert en deelt met haar lezers. Fantastisch gewoon.

Wat is de Sunshine Blogger Award?

De Sunshine Blogger award is een award van bloggers voor bloggers die anderen inspireren om creatief en positief op te treden in de wereld van het bloggen.


  • Bedank de blogger die jou genomineerd heeft voor de Sunshine Blogger Award en voorzie een link naar zijn / haar blog.
  • Beantwoordt 11 vragen die de blogger jou stelt.
  • Nomineer zelf 11 nieuwe bloggers om de award te ontvangen en stel ze 11 vragen.
  • Som de regels op en plaats het logo van de Sunshine Blogger Award in je post op je blog.

Beantwoord de vragen

  1. Waarom en wanneer ben jij begonnen met bloggen?
    Ik ben begonnen met bloggen toen ik 18 was, dus intussen doe ik het ruim 5 jaar. Ik heb altijd al een passie gehad voor het maken van websites, dus bloggen was voor mij een “probeersel”, een nieuw project zeg maar. Ik wilde zien of het iets voor mij was en dat bleek wel zo te zijn. Waarom ben ik ermee begonnen, goh, omdat ik een uitlaatklep wilde. Een eigen plekje.
  2. Moest je een persoon uit een serie/film zijn, wie zou jij dan zijn?
    Jessica Day van New Girl, no doubt. Ik ben even prettig gestoord en ontzettend naïef soms. Ik ga altijd uit van het goede van mensen, maar ben al vaak tegen de lamp gelopen zo.
  3. Wat is jouw doel in het leven?
    Mijn doel is om te genieten van elke dag en gelukkig te zijn (ben ik al hoor). Een kind ter wereld brengen is ook een belangrijk doel voor mij.
  4. Wat zijn je favoriete thema’s om over te lezen?
    Romantische fictie. Fantasy. Het begon allemaal met Twilight en zo is het verder gegaan met Fifty Shades LOL 😀 Op dit moment Just One Day van Gayle Forman (van de film If I Stay). Qua bloggen liefst fashion artikels of reviews.
  5. Welke tips heb je tegen verveling?
    Schrijf een blog, haha! Nee hoor, grapje. Er valt zoveel te doen. Tekenen, lezen, shoppen, een spelletje spelen, gaan wandelen met de hond, poets je huis, herorganiseer je kledingkast, enzovoort. Ik verveel me weinig tot zelden, ik heb altijd tijd tekort.
  6. Hoe ga je om met mensen die commentaar hebben op jou?
    Ik trek mij veel te veel aan wat mensen over mij zeggen. Ik ga er dus helemaal niet goed mee om (jammer genoeg). Al wat ik kan zeggen is, er zullen altijd mensen zijn die commentaar gaan hebben op je. Soms uit jaloezie, soms uit bitterheid, soms gewoon omdat die mensen geen goede bedoelingen hebben. Loslaten is de kunst, maar dat is makkelijker gezegd dan gedaan.
  7. Wat is jouw lievelingseten?
    Macaroni met kaas en hesp. Als dessert Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough
  8. Leukste cadeau die je ooit hebt gekregen?
    Een laptop van mijn lieve vriend, een kleine compacte witte Lenovo. Echt een topding, ik werk erop voor mijn blog.
  9. unnamed
  10. Waar zou jij naartoe willen reizen (top 3)?
    Griekenland, Italië, New York.
  11. Wat doe je buiten bloggen?
    Ik werk als verkoopster voor Longchamp. Verder niks fancy: mijn huishouden, zorgen voor mijn konijntje en samen een filmpje kijken met mijn vriend. Ik hou van een rustig leven buiten mijn werk.
  12. Moest je de lotto winnen, wat zou jij met je geld doen?
    Een huis/villa kopen voor mijn vriend en mij en mama, héél veel reizen. Een heleboel honden en konijnen houden. Ik zou me alleen nog maar bezighouden met genieten van het leven.

Nomination Sunshine Blogger Award


Hi dear readers,

I had the extraordinary honor to be nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the amazing blogger Angel Lou, from the blog I love her personal blog, filled with lovely writings and inspiration ❤ Definitely worth a visit if you ask me!

The Sunshine Blogger award is given by bloggers to bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity in the blogging community.


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in your blog post and links back to her blog.
  2. Answering 11 questions that the Blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the awards and write them 11 questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post on your blog.

Answer the questions

1. What’s your niche about?

My blog’s about fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I do a lot of different topics, but 80% is fashion minded. I consider that the main theme of my blog.

2. What makes you decide to blog?

I was kind of into making websites since I was little. I used to make websites for fun, about little pets or dolls you could adopt online. When I was eighteen, I came up with the idea of blogging. I was in college back then and I had lots of free time. Right now I don’t have much time left at the end of the day, but I do stay loyal to blogging. It’s my way of relaxing after a long day. It’s a world I love.

3. What would you do if you didn’t blog?

Probably study, draw or do another hobby. I am a very productive person – doing nothing isn’t an option. I’m always busy and I like it that way. My world wouldn’t fall apart without my blog, but I’d miss it a lot. Kinda like my cup of coffee in the morning 🙂

4. What would be the advice that you want to give to the new bloggers?

One big advice: stay true to yourself. You are unique and people visit your blog because they want to know a bit about your life and your experiences. Don’t copycat, be unique – that’s the only way to real success.

5. If you had a chance to win a lottery, what would you do to the prize?

Travel the world, buy a house for myself and my family… Just enjoy life to the fullest and see a bit of the world. I’d try different foods, see different places, learn different languages. The time I’d spend normally working I’d invest in lifetime experiences. I’d also put up a big shelter for animals without a home.

6. What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Burn by Marnik, ROOKIES. It’s not a famous song but currently the favorite of my playlist.

7. Do you get pressured about blogging?

Sometimes, I have to admit. It’s not easy, sometimes I’m very tired after work and I know I need to do some promotion for my blog or socialize to keep up with my contacts. But I stick to the one thing I always keep in mind: it’s a HOBBY.  I do make some money with my blog, but it’s not an income. So I focus on my job, what I do beside that is just for fun and additional. If I don’t feel like writing, I’m not gonna force myself to write.

8. What’s your favorite dessert?

Ben & Jerry’s. Or moelleux. Or pancakes. Every dessert really, I love sweet food.

9. What’s your dream job?

I work my dreamjob. I work as a sales advisor for Longchamp. For the future, yeah, I do have some other brands in mind and I do have the ambition to become assistant manager 🙂

10. What is the story behind your blog name?

Outfit Van De Dag means Outfit Of The Day in Dutch, or as we call it OOTD. It’s a reference to the fashion theme that is mainly present on my blog platform.

11. Name 3 traits that you have

Treats? Ehh… I eat way to much takeaway (blame it on my boyfriend, he suggests it also waaaay to often), I drink way to much coffee (no one to blame besides myself LOL) and I do need my bathroom moments once in a while when I do a full body and face care moment.
