So .. many things happened the past few months. I've been off the map lately on my blog but more active on Instagram. Although I'm thinking about making a new one and delete this one. Maybe it is time to make a new start :)
But like I said, things changed. And most of the time changes are good. I decided to quit my study in Utrecht. I didn't think it was the right study for me and it wasn't really a challenge. I wanted to start with a new study this past february but I didn't know what I wanted to do so I decided to put this idea on the back burner for a while. 
Meanwhile I'm not planning on doing nothing so I (we) decided to move to Amsterdam (that is why I made a little inspirational collage, haha).
Also, yesterday I finally got my driver's license. After almost one year of doing nothing (because of my ex-boyfriend blahblah) I decided to start with lessons again two weeks ago and now, two weeks later I finally have my driver's license. 
I'm thinking of deleting many of my old posts on this blog and start all over. I already changed the colors in my lay-out and I'm probably going to change the header as well. We'll see ..
For now I'm going to see if I can find some pictures from the past few months to post later this week. Have a lovely Kingsday!

In 2012 I started running and working out but since 1 year I stopped working out and running on a daily basis. (Pole) fitness, running, athletics, ballet, hip-hop dance, Yoga. You name it, I've done it. But I was busy with school and work so to me the weekends were really weekends .. I've always wanted to get back to fitness and running but it didn't really work out. I'm so happy I can finally say I have time and my mind is set to it as well. A huge plus haha. When I posted a picture on Snapchat today from my shoes, I received over 17 snapchats from people who really know me with 'Wait what, no heels?!' and 'What have you done with Elke?'. So yes, you can say it's been a looong time since I actually wore running shoes haha.

My Spotify work out playlist♡

My dangerously white running shoes are from Nike. (Obviously ...)

Right now I should be studying but for some reason everything else seems so much more important and much more fun than studying. Only one more week left with assignments and exams. I'll be finally off next week ..
To keep my blog a little up-to-date (between studying), I wanted to share this video with you guys. The thing is, I have a bunch of pictures to post but I can not find time to actually write something as well as photoshopping the pictures .. Maybe next week I will manage to find enough time to write tons of posts haha. Well, I am obsessed with this song lately. Not only these girls have amazing voices, (Tori Kelly as well) the video is simple but beautiful. Hmm okay, no one can top Tori Kelly but they did a really good job! :)
Besides John Mayers 'All we ever do is say goodbye', this song can be considered as one of my favorites right now as well.
Now back to studying ... :( TTYS (remember Paris Hilton? haha).

19th birthday

  *I love how beautiful this shirt looks .. So flattering .. And my duckface. Wow.* Sarcasm rises. No idea what I was thinking when my mom took this picture of me haha. 

On sunday 4th October I celebrated my birthday and I was lucky enough I could spent it with the people I love. I have to admit .. I hate my own birthday. Or well, I don't really care about my own birthday. I love going to other peoples birthdays and parties but I don't feel like celebrating my own birthday. When I was younger I loved celebrating my own birthday. Sleepless nights, making wishlists and having family over. But at this point I don't feel like throwing big birthday parties. Am I the only one? Haha :)

These lovely balloons I got from some people from college as an early birthday present. They are so sweet. One week after my birthday they're still in the air. These helium filled foil balloons are huge (more or less 1 meter) so my mom insisted on taking pictures with the balloons haha. That didn't went well as usual, so the best pictures are without my face :)
Right now I'm working on my assignments for school .. Exams are coming up and I have to study so hard. Also, our projects from block A are coming to an end so we need to polish our assignments and projects and stuff. It's exhausting and sometimes a challenge because I am not a native English speaker and we have to work in a groups of 4. But I think we will manage to finish everything on time and hopefully pass all the assignments and exams. At least .. That is our goal for the upcoming 2 weeks haha. :)

For now I leave you guys with some "beautiful" balloon picture. Oh! Have you guys already visited the Victoria's Secret shop in Amsterdam? It's located at the Central Station in Amsterdam (Ij-passage) and it looks lovely! So if you guys are ever in Amsterdam (or at Schiphol), don't forget to pay a visit. And make sure you don not need to catch a train on time because believe me, you will miss the train ;) Soon I will share some of the things I got at Victoria's Secret.♡
