Simplify Your Life -Cleaning up your inbox

Simplify Your Life -Cleaning up your inbox

We are bombarded with emails constantly in this day and age, and expected to get back to work or personal emails at a moment’s notice (which is a whole other issue). Emails quickly build up and we become overwhelmed trying to sift through them. Inboxes get so crowded we can no longer find the important emails. Instead of pulling out your hair, it’s time to take action and clean up your inbox. 

Monday’s Mouthful – Easy Baked Sweet Potato Fries!

Monday’s Mouthful – Easy Baked Sweet Potato Fries!

Annnnnd we’re back – with sweet potato fries! As you may have heard (read?) I am without internet in France at the moment with no clear idea as to when that will be remedied (yay for pre-scheduling posts). This resulted in a short break to regroup after last month’s blogging challenge. It was great to remind ourselves that we can do anything as long as we set aside the time to make it a priority.

The Most Perfect Saturday in Paris!

The Most Perfect Saturday in Paris!

It is Sunday night and I am trying to get myself ready for my review week at school before my exam. The problem is my brain is still on a high from such a perfect Saturday in Paris! I usually head back to Belgium after school on Friday’s however this week the trains weren’t running as usual. Instead of going home, C drove here on Friday afternoon to spend the weekend in France and Saturday in Paris.

Late at night and searching for inspiration…

Late at night and searching for inspiration…

July is quickly coming to a close. It’s late at night, on a long weekend. I’ve left my blog post to the end of the day again. You think I would have learned my lesson by now. After a whole month of writing everyday I should know better. I am tempted to slam my computer closed and call it a night. But this is my last blog post of our July Blogging Challenge.

A Beginner’s Guide to Running!

A Beginner’s Guide to Running!

Finally made it to week 8 of my running program! I have started the same program at least 3 times now and have never made it this far. Typically as soon as I miss one running session I give up on the whole thing entirely. NOT THIS TIME! As a beginner runner myself I thought I would share some of my tips of how to get started and stick with a new fitness endeavour!

Blogging vs Pokémon Go

Blogging vs Pokémon Go

The latest craze -Pokémon Go! I resisted downloading it for the first week but when I got home from a work trip my boyfriend had recently downloaded it and was waiting for me to go on a Pokémon walk. 

The Best Things About Summer!

The Best Things About Summer!

It’s almost the end of July (and our July Blogging Challenge). So far we’ve worked hard to post everyday but yesterday, for the first time I missed a day of posting. Instead of writing, after school I took off into Paris with some friends and we spent a lovely evening eating and drinking (and dancing) in a park. It was a perfect summer night that inspired this list of all of the best things about summer!

Why I am Afraid to Commit to Anything

Why I am Afraid to Commit to Anything

Earlier this month I was feeling down. I went to a bookstore for some retail therapy and let my thoughts run off to the far corners of my mind to try and find out what might be missing (sometimes dangerous, sometimes rewarding). I found myself feeling unhappy with where I am in life and like I was still waiting for my life to start (spoiler alert: still feeling this way). Every time someone asks me what I am doing now I always say I am still figuring out what I want to do. It feels like my life is on hold while I wait. And while I have some ideas of what I may want to do I am terrified to do anything about it. I am afraid of committing to jobs, careers, projects etc. Anything that might advance me in a direction I am interested in is scary.
