Lovely and empowering marketing campaign for a Brasilian lifestyle website for women.


I started a 10 day detox a week ago, but this morning there was an evil cereal bowl calling me and I decided that after 7 days I give in and I ate a big bowl! :) I couldn't have carried on for 10 days anyway as AC (=boyfriend) is coming tomorrow and he wants to take me out for dinner (which I don't want to spoil :) plus we have a big Easter family dinner on Thursday before we go on vacation. (again... I need to enjoy that! :)

But anyway, I am happy, refereshed and feel very healthy!

  • Despite what some of you might think, I did eat a lot! But only from the healthy stuff... fruits, veggies and seeds
  • I never felt hungry
  • I did have cravings though... especially for cereal!
  • Favorite meal: steamed broccoli with grilled onions
  • Starting from day 2, I had much more energy than before, running was not a core anymore
  • I did cheat once, on my great god mother's 70th birthday party :) I just had to have a slice of that heavenly strawberry cheesecake
  • I didn't run every single day as planned, but I did go 5 times in 7 days and I went to the gym 3 times to lift some weights/do some spinning as well
  • I lost 1.5 kg (3.3lb) yeyyyyy
Overall I'm feeling great and that is truly one of the best detoxes/diets I've ever done. I was not hungry, I ate lots of delicious healthy stuff and went outside to finally start running (something I always wanted to do). I will certainly not start to eat all sorts of junk now, I'm sticking to a healthy lifestyle and will keep on running outside too.

I encourage you to have a health week! Bikini season is approaching fast and a detox week can do wonders to not only how you look on the outside, but also to how you feel inside! :)

Next challenge: stick to healthy food in an all inclusive 5 star resort for 8 days... oh oh....


Camel Party

Pretty Tattoos

For a very long time I've been thinking whether I should get a tattoo or not. I don't want to have a tattoo just to have a tattoo, I'm waiting for something to inspire me so much that I would want to carry it with me till the end of life. :) I know it will be either a quote, a writing or something very simple like a bird flying away...

I think these are very pretty:

Do you have a tattoo? Where is it and what is it?

Thank you!!!

Gran Tourismo

I just recently heard of a fabulous project called Gran Tourismo.

In 2010, globetrotting travel writers Lara Dunston and Terence Carter, in partnership with HomeAway Holiday-Rentals, will trade hotel rooms for holiday homes as they embark on a contemporary grand tour of the globe. They’ll be travelling slowly, living like locals, doing and learning things, and giving something back at each destination they visit. Their mission is to explore more enriching and authentic ways of travelling, and make travel more meaningful and more memorable.

You can follow their journey on their blog, I'll certainly do! :)

So far they've visited Dubai, London, Marrakesch, Essaouira, Madrid, Jerez and right now they are in BARCELONA!!!

Are you doing anything fun this weekend? I'll keep detoxing, running, will go on a quick trip to Budapest to visit some family and will go on long walks in the sun to make some photos! :)

Have a Happy Weekend, Spring is finally here!

Gypsy*Friday - Amsterdam*The Netherlands

After my summer in Sevilla, I enrolled in a double degree BA program in the Budapest Business School and the Dutch Avans University. As part of the program we had to spend 6 months in The Netherlands.
Oh Boy, best six months of my life! :) Crazy parties, great new friends, cute boys, bikes, lots of travelling, windmills, wooden shoes, tulips... what's not to love? Have you ever been an exchange student abroad? Most people will tell you that it's the best experience you can have in life!


Killer Shoes by Sonia Rykiel

So on my big shopping trip last weekend I bought these killer pair of shoes and I love them! My girlfriend said they were the ugliest shoes she's ever seen :) but goodness I'm so tall in them and they are so comfy! :) What do you say? Like or dislike?

P.S: I'm tiny and my boyfriend is probably the tallest guy I've ever met so I definately need these! :)

Run 2

You remember that scene in Yes Man when Zooey Deschanel takes Jim Carrey on a run with her photography group? (If you haven't seen the movie, you seriously have to! one of the funniest movies of all times) That scene inspired me to take my camera with me on run nr 2. :) Well I did feel like an idiot making pictures while running, but I have to say I'm pretty impressed with some of the results! (and man my quadriceps is killing me today!) Running starts to be a little fun...
