What I did Wednesday // Italy Edition


Hello lovelies, from Italy! It's stop 05 on my Summer Roadtrip and while I'm still planning to do another Bucket List for where I'm staying in Italy at the end, I thought I thought I would try logging in a more recent snippet of my trip: Today! The area we're visiting is Lake Como, and I've spent most of the week so far exploring all the small Italian towns near us, swimming in the beautiful Lake, and of course eating way to much Italian food haha. It really us beautiful here though, and such a relaxing change from busy Amsterdam or the cold Swiss Alps that I was in a few weeks ago. This week is pretty much 're-charge' time for us and so as a 'What I did Wednesday for you' and kind of like an online scrapbook for me I thought I would show you all what I got up to today... from food, to canoeing, to sunbathing!

The Fear of Missing Out.


I feel like everyone gets this from time to time, but lately mine has been at an all-time high and so I decided to do what I always do when I'm feeling crappy ... write.

Being on this Summer roadtrip is incredible. I can't argue with that. I get to visit different countries every week, try new foods every day, and spend a whole 5 Weeks of quality time with my family without any distractions. But I can't have the best of both worlds (crap was that a Hannah Montana reference??) and so that also means missing out on whatever's happening at home. I know it's stupid, time doesn't freeze while I'm away and everyone is busy enjoying their own Summers but lately it's really been getting me down and I hate it.

It's unavoidable. Everywhere on Snapchat and Instagram I'm flooded videos of my friends hanging out, going to house parties and meeting up with new people. And then there's the spontaneous things too. Random meetups that probably won't happen ever again, days out to places we won't re-visit ... summer memories that I just won't exist in. I know I'm blowing it out of proportion and worrying too much (after all, it's literally just one Summer,) but I can't help feeling like I'm missing out, whatever I'm doing, wherever I'm going. I worry that no one will have even missed me when I come back or at least in the same way I've missed them and I'll have so much to catch up on and that
scares me

It's irrational but I think we all get this kind of fomo at some point, it's how I deal with it that I'm not sure about. Step 1. Make myself a hot chocolate. Step 2. Facetime my Best Friend. Step 3. Write this blog post. I'm counting on these things to help me feel better, so here's hoping they do. 


QOTD: GOT ANY ADVICE FOR FOMO? I COULD DO WITH IT :(

Vegan Lunch Box Ideas // Bento Style!


Hey lovelies! So it's Week 3 of my Summer Roadtrip and I am typing from Switzerland ahh! It feels so strange being in a different country every time I put a new post up but I'm loving it haha. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I started seeing so many youtube videos, blog posts and pinterest boards on my newest obsession: Bento Boxes. These are originally from Japan but as well as being a super cute way to organise and display your food, they're actually really practical for taking to work and school and since it's been forever since I last did I foodie post, today I thought I would show you three healthy vegan lunchbox ideas I put together. You can buy actual bento boxes here, but since I don't own any yet I just had to work with what I had using these three containers that's compartments looked like the bento boxes. Even though I don't want to say the dreaded words *back to school* since it's the middle of Summer for most of us including me, I hope this gives you a little inspo for school lunches when you go back!

Amsterdam Bucket List // Wanderlust 01



Hey lovelies! Throwing in a cheeky double post this week because I just could not wait to do a travel-related post. Since I'm going to a lot of different countries in Europe on my Summer Roadtrip, I was thinking a lot about the best way to write about each of them on my blog and so I decided to do my own Bucket List for some of them. In here I'll basically show you all the things I got up to and would recommend there as well as pictures and a kinda diary for myself of my Summer. To start: AMSTERDAM! It had always been one of my dream places to go, and so during my 3-day stay there on the trip there was so much I wanted to see and do. I packed as much as I could into those three days, there were tours, flea markets, museums, coffee shops and canal trips but out of everything I thought I'd show you all the things I managed to tick off my Bucket List!

My Month in Polaroids // July


Hello lovelies! Currently typing from The Black Forest in Germany in this post - which is absolutely boiling at the moment - but gorgeous all the same! As I've mentioned in quite a few posts, recently I bought myself a polaroid camera and while I've showed you it in my Love List ect. I realised I never actually showed the individual polaroids. I've loved taking pictures on it so far, especially on this holiday is such a great way to capture memories from country to country, and so in this post I thought I would start something new and do a 'My Month in Polaroids' post. Basically showing you all the polaroids I've taken this month and like a sum up of July if you know what I mean. Let me know if you enjoy this style of post because I'd love to do an August one!
