Alternative taco night

Happy Friday!!

Weekend already! And today I thought I would share a vegetarian Taco option. I assume that everybody knows what Tacos are… This is one of my favourite dishes, especially on a Friday or Saturday. I’ve always believed that you can’t make proper tacos without meat. But, today I proved myself wrong!

I made a super delicious, super simple and cheap alternative to meat. My boyfriend and I both agreed that it actually tasted better than the taco version with meat.

All you need for the meat replacement is:

300 grams lentils

250 grams kidney beans

1 ½ tbsp. tomato purée

3 tbsp. canned, diced tomatoes

As much taco spice mix as you prefer


Heat a pan and add all the ingredients.

Mash everything properly together before you stir well.

Heat the mixture and enjoy while it’s still warm.


That’s all you have to do, apart from including the other taco ingredients that you like. I ate my tacos with taco shells, tomatoes, cucumber, corn, sour cream, guacamole, taco sauce and mozzarella cheese. If you don’t know what to eat for dinner tomorrow, I strongly suggest you try this! You won’t be disappointed:)





I’m going to watch some Harry Potter now. I’m completely obsessed again. I’ve been obsessed since I started reading the first book, though I do have my periods where I’m not completely lost in the Harry Potter world. Which isn’t the case right now. If I don’t force myself to do something useful during the day, I could spend every second from the moment I wake up till the moment I fall asleep just watching HP movies, read the books or watch YouTube compilation videos of behind the scenes, interviews with the cast and J. K. Rowling and stuff…

We shall see how long that’s going to last lol I recon a couple of months; when I’ve read the books several times, watched the movies over and over again and watched all the YouTube videos there are about Harry Potter… Yes I’m that crazy haha…

Anyway, I hope you’re having a great Friday night! I will be back soon so stay tuned


The easiest step to turn a bad day into a good one

Hey there 🙂

Sometimes you just need to breath in the fresh air. Surround yourself with silence and beautiful colours and your mood goes from 0 to a 100.



That’s exactly what I did today. I haven’t been feeling top notch the last couple of days. I’m motivated to do a lot of stuff. However, there’s something inside me that keeps me from getting fully focused on the things that I want to pursue. Neither have I been feeling too well about my body and all that. Which is the consequence when I don’t work out for a month. My day started with a vocal lesson and after that I stopped by my parents. Before it went dark I took a walk with my dog in the forest, and I realized that was exactly what I needed.



I brought my boyfriend’s camera and captured a few pictures which are the ones in this post. I forced myself to focus fully on that moment. How cliché it may sound, that is sometimes the best solution to a bad day.



I’ve been home for about an hour now, finished a song I started working on yesterday and it’s the first one I’m pretty excited about. So excited that I’m considering uploading it to YouTube on Monday. So far I haven’t uploaded any original stuff and I think it’s about time! Because I do write my own music.

I’m soon off to bed, counting on a productive day tomorrow and the day after that haha

I hope you had a great day!


Imagination and beautiful designs

Hello again 🙂

Monday!!! Sort of my favourite day of the weeks since most others don’t like Mondays at all. I also have to admit that I like it much more now that I don’t have to go to school in a while haha. I woke up pretty early this morning. I had an appointment with my therapist and my dad was so kind to give me a ride.




Dad bought me this, something that makes the bathroom (or any other room you put it in lol) smell good. I looove the design of it!

Other than that I’ve been writing, and I made some proper vegetarian dinner. This time I actually made something without a recipe. So I don’t really know what to call this dish, but either way it was super delicious and suuuper simple! My boyfriend said it was the best I’d made so far since I started making vegetarian food.

For those who are interested, here’s the recipe:

1 zucchini

1 eggplant

1 paprika

250 grams mushroom

1 onion

3 garlic cloves

2 tsp. freshly chopped ginger

3 tbsp. tomato purée

4 dl vegetable stock

3 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. butter

Salt, curry and basil powder for seasoning


It’s as simple as heating a pan, add the olive oil and chop all the vegetables, onion and garlic and add them in the pan as well. Cook until the vegetables are softened.

Add the tomato purée and vegetable stock. Stir the mixture well while you bring it to a boil.

Reduce the heat until it’s slightly simmering, add the spices and stir before covering the pan.

Let the whole mixture simmer until you’ve got a rather thick texture and there is no excess water left (about 30-40 minutes)

Serve with rice or potatoes. I didn’t have much to choose from to have on the side, only some spinach and avocado. But I believe it would taste very good with some Greek yoghurt and/or cheese too.



(Sorry for not the most delicate pictures…)

That’s basically everything. It’s definitely worth to try out! So far my vegetarian lifestyle change is going great. Not that I’ve been a vegetarian for long, but I haven’t missed eating meat at all and I’ve become so much more creative with cooking already, which is awesome! I believe there will be many more recipes in the future.

I hope your Monday was great and that you’ve got and exciting upcoming week!

I’m back tomorrow so stay tuned 🙂





The perfect dinner for colder days

Hey there 🙂

Today I thought I would share a new recipe with you. I haven’t shared one in quite a while because I haven’t exactly been cooking properly. But since I became a vegetarian (sounds like I’ve been one for ages, but it’s actually just my first week tomorrow lol) I’ve been cooking proper food and funny enough; everything has tasted delicious so far.

Today I made Chili with black beans and sweet potato. I did use a recipe I found on the internet as a base, but I added my own twist to it.

This is actually the first time I would really recommend you to try out a recipe I’m sharing. It tastes absolutely amazing, it is super healthy, easy to make and of course meat free!

This is what you will need:





1 large sweet potato

450 grams of black beans

400 grams of canned, diced tomatoes

1 dl quinoa

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp. ground cumin

2 tbsp. chili powder

2 dl olive oil

1 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. tomato purée

2 tbsp. lemon juice

8 dl vegetable stock


Start with heating a pan and add the olive oil.

Chop the Sweet potato in cubes and slice the onion. Add them in the pan and let them cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is softened.

Add the beans, garlic, tomato, quinoa, stock and tomato purée. Also add the spices. Stir well to combine everything and bring it to a boil.

Reduce the heat so that the mixture is slightly simmering, and cover the pan.

Cook for about 30-40 minutes, longer if you can. The longer you cook it, the more flavour the Chili will get.

When it’s done cooking and the mixture is slightly thick as a chili, you add the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and remove the pan from the heat.

Serve with some Greek yoghurt, spinach, avocado and/or cheese and enjoy! It might sound like a lot of work but it really isn’t. It’s definitely worth a try. I love those hot, heart-warming stews on cold nights like the ones we’ve had the last couple of days.




I also uploaded another video where I cooked my first proper, vegetarian dish as a vegetarian. It’s not much, but I hope you will watch it and don’t forget to subscribe to one or both of my YouTube channels if you want to 🙂

I hope you had a great day!


Menswear vs. Womenswear

Happy Tuesday!

For some reason my family on my mothers side has started a thing where they, every Tuesday morning write Happy Tuesday on WhatsApp to us and themselves lol. Perhaps it is a thing, but I thought it would be more logical with Happy Monday or happy Friday or something. Who knows, that probably exists too 🙂

I’ve finally been able to use my computer again today. I forgot my charger at my parents on Sunday, so yesterday I more or less couldn’t do anything, at least not do anything on my computer because it was out of battery as well. However, today my mom brought me my charger. We met up half way, and for a few hours now I’ve been working on a new video for my other YouTube channel. I’ve also cooked a proper dinner; ratatouille actually. This is the third night that I’ve been cooking really decent vegetarian food.


I think I’m cooking more proper than I’ve done ever to be honest. At least I’ve followed recipes, I’ve taken the time to make the food taste good and I’ve really tried my best to make something out of it. And I have to admit, I didn’t exactly do this when I ate meat. I usually just threw some ground beef in the pan with some vegetables and rice. Often not even that.

So I’ve made some huge progress just these last three days. Now I just have to try and keep it up haha.

Today I thought I would show you the clothing and stuff I got in Berlin. My boyfriend and I did a little shopping, and since I rarely buy anything that has anything to do with fashion or clothing, I thought that this one rare time that I actually did it, I could at least show you.

It’s not much, and it’s nothing special, but here we go:



I bought an another similar t-shirt like the white one, only that one is black. I also surprised myself by buying this colourful t-shirt since I’m not really into colourful clothing. But this for some reason appealed to me.



Instead of buying only sweatpants, I decided to go for some proper jeans this time. I don’t know how many stores my boyfriend and I went through to find a pair of boyfriend jeans. But at last I found these two which I’m super happy about. Another thing that really blew my mind (not in a positive way) was the fact that all, and I truly mean ALL the mens jeans where skinny jeans, just like the girls. I couldn’t see any difference between the girls and the mens jeans and the way they fitted. Am I the only one thinking that’s just ridiculous and not to mention weird? There were absolutely no jeans for my boyfriend to find, who prefers tapered or baggy jeans. They did have jeans that said tapered and baggy, but when he put them on there was truly no difference between the skinny options and the baggy options…




I love this jumpsuit, my absolute favourite purchase! It is just so comfortable!





Last but not least I bought myself a new handbag, a Harry Potter cap (which I of course could not let pass when I saw it haha) and another hat. I’m definitely not a hat person, but my boyfriend liked it, and when I put it on I actually really liked it too. I also bought a pair of winter boots but I forgot to take a picture of them.

That’s about it 🙂 I hope you didn’t mind some fashion talk (though it wasn’t exactly that either but I don’t know what to call it lol).

I hope your week has been great so far and I’ll be back pretty soon, so stay tuned 🙂






A happy day to be happy on!

Hello again 🙂

So another Sunday is coming to an end and I’ve spent mine mostly in the kitchen. It was my mothers birthday and of course there is no birthday without a cake. So I spent quite a few hours making a cake, followed by making homemade sushi for dinner. I think she was happy with my effort and the result haha, at least I was satisfied with the cake, the taste of it.



This years gift 🙂

I always have something that I’m not satisfied with; I can probably dedicate the rest of this post to complaining about everything I wasn’t happy with lol but I won’t do that.





Instead I thought I would tell you about a new thing I’ve decided to try out. I have, for a couple of months now, been thinking about becoming a vegetarian. I’d noticed for quite some time that I started feeling sick to my stomach and struggle with a feeling of guilt when I prepared meat, ate meat or saw raw meat.

I thought more and more about the fact that a living creature was being killed just so I could have meat on my plate. I’d never really thought about it before, but for two/three months now it hit me really hard what I was actually doing when I ate meat. So I’ve decided to become a vegetarian. I don’t know for how long, perhaps just a few weeks, but for now it doesn’t feel right to eat meat.

So from now on, I will have to find my protein source elsewhere haha. I’m finally at home with my boyfriend again now. All those hours in the kitchen have made me pretty tired, so I will probably not go to bed too late. I hope you had a great weekend and that you’re ready for this new week!


Finally back!

Hey there!

First of all, I want to apologize for being so quiet the last two weeks. I intended to write a lot and make a whole bunch of videos throughout the whole vacation, but things came in the way. We did leave as planned, Thursday morning, two weeks ago. We had gotten a great car, Mercedes-Benz C180, 2016 model actually!! However, my boyfriend had gotten ill a couple of days before. He was struggling with a fever and a bad cold and was coughing all the time. So the night before we left we barely got any sleep, perhaps one or two hours and we were super tired at the point of departure. Of course we woke up after several cups of coffee, and we took a lot of naps in between. But we barely got any sleep the three following days, and on the third day I got sick with a bad fever and cold which I’m still struggling with today lol.  


Not exactly what we had planned; both of us being sick on our first ever vacation haha. I just haven’t had the energy to write or make videos.




We started out the vacation by first visiting my home country the Netherlands ( Holland ) to join my grandmas 90th birthday party. We surprised her and didn’t tell anyone we were coming, we just showed up at her doorstep the day of the party. I think she appreciated it:)That is why I didn’t tell you where we were going because I was afraid maybe some family members would read my blog lol.



After that we drove to Berlin, and we were there for about a week. On our way home we took the Stena Line ship with one sleepover and two days ago we finally got home. In total we were away for 12 days, and 7 of those days we spent in Berlin.




(We visited the zoo in Berlin. It was a great day, but looking at those animals made me so sad, because they just seemed so sad…)

So that is basically a short summary of our trip. Now it’s all back to normal and I have to say I still feel a little bit sad, because my boyfriend and I had such a great time in spite of the coughing and fevers. I will be writing regularly again now, and though I didn’t share anything when we were on vacation I still have a lot of pictures and stuff to share, so stay tuned 🙂

I hope you’re doing well and feeling great!


Bad timing

Good evening 🙂

Just popping in to say hi 🙂 I’ve been lying on the couch pretty much all day, feeling really tired after a night with almost no sleep, and dealing with a bad headache. My boyfriend is sick, and I strongly hope I’m not in the beginning phase of becoming sick either since we’re leaving in three days. Wouldn’t be nice to start our first vacation with both being ill lol.

We’ve felt pretty bad for ourselves the whole day. No one had the energy to make dinner so we treated ourselves with some sushi. The rest of the night will probably be spent on the couch as well and we’re going for a more energized day tomorrow.





I hope you’re doing well and that you had a great day!
