Catching Up

The past few weeks have literally flown by and I am currently sitting in my room wondering where the time has gone. I am not even going to write that the past few weeks have been hectic because at this point it feels like my standard excuse. Instead I would like to recap the past weeks for you. Starting off with an accomplishment of mine that I am pretty proud of.

Diana Leeflang Stationary Line

As some of you may know I am not that good with following other Bloggers/Vloggers. I have a few blogs which I do read repeatedly but most times I totally forget. One vlogger that I do follow is the Dutch Diana Leeflang, also known as DisforDazzle. I love watching her vlogs and I think her and Alex just make the cutest couple ever. A while back she announced that she was launching a Stationary Line at the Dutch Kruidvat stores and as soon as I heard the news I knew I just had to check the items out.

Fit Girl Diaries of an Unfit Girl

It was probably a Sunday morning because most often these things tend to happen on Sunday morning. I come from a semi-athletic family of which most have a deep felt passion for running. Save to say those genes skipped me and more than often I feel as if I am the Snorlax of the family. However, somehow they managed to persuade me into doing something I would never consider possible…

Why I am more like Bridget Jones than I Care to Admit

When your parents get divorced you often go through a rough period. Memories of that period are often more negative than positive and my experience has not been any different. One of the good memories that I do have is watching Bridget Jones with my father his girlfriend (now wife) and always realising that my life would probably run a similar course (eleven year old Nica was already very aware of her personality). So today I thought it would be time to write down why my life is so similar to hers. Here we go!

Well Hello Sun

Well is today not just a perfect day? Yesterday I had the pleasure of singing in a local pub as part of an activity organised by my study association. I somehow managed to forget my lines as soon as we reached the second verse, I really do not understand how it happened but I just laughed and laughed and after someone saved me by providing me with the lyrics on their phone I just went with it. When I woke up this morning I felt pretty bad. I had not had that much sleep and also managed to have a terrifying nightmare. Yet when I walked to my regular Body Shape class my entire mood changed.

Fitspiration? More like Fitfrustration

As I am writing this I have just returned from the gym (I also managed to almost throw myself off the stairs in the gym because I got caught in my sweatpants…). Now we are slowly nearing Spring which means that everyone is more focused than ever on getting a beach body. I am a firm believer of the fact that every body is a beach body but the ever so confronting thought that I am only 21 years old and find myself entirely exhausted after running up one flight of stairs does motivate me to get my lazy ass in gear.


Literally the only pictures I have of myself coming even close to working out are on horseback

Why my Dad Will no Longer Let me in the House and my Mom Fears for my Ears

Every little girl has dreams and while I was no different as a child my dreams did go all over the place. As soon as I realised that Disney would not conform it’s plastic princess slippers to the size of girls with humongous feet (represent!) I let those dreams fly out of the window. I then discovered an entirely new world made-up of Avril Lavigne and P!nk and soon my dreams reached to the other side of the spectrum. At the young age of 6 I had decided that older me would have pink hair and a pierced nose. If you would ask my father what he thought about those plans he would probably tell you that I would set myself up for a slutty future.
