WEEKEND VIBES

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I woke up today dreaming of the ocean, wild salt air and sun-kissed skin. You would understand if you are obsessed as much as I am with summer and all the good things that come with it. What do you dream about today? Love, Adriana Advertisements

THE 8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD

Our world is pretty amazing and there are so many places on the map that I still want to see. Today I share with you one of the most stunning places that I have ever visited. Niagara Falls can rightly be called the 8th wonder of the world. Niagara Falls were formed thousands of years ago as glaziers melted, forming Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. It is a place that I always love to come back to. I can spend hours looking at that emerald green water as it tumbles over the edge with such great force. This place is captivating! Pictures don’t do it justice. I hope you enjoy the photos and see the Falls for yourself one day!

THE PRESSURE OF GROWING UP

I recently turned 27 and for me it was a time to stop for a minute, take a look at myself, see where I am today, and ask some questions. I am just one of many twenty-something year olds trying to make sense of their lives. It’s when you hit the late twenties (or maybe earlier) that it all starts. Your social media feed fills with beautiful engagement rings, wedding photos and cute smiling babies. This can bring a whole lot of emotions. Not all of us will be affected but it doesn’t mean that we can ignore those real anxieties women face as they approach their 30s and their biological clocks tick louder than ever. Even if you don’t want to have children, you can still hear the ticking. We must have found a stable job, made enough money, found someone to have a baby with or figured out that we actually don’t want to have a baby, gone travelling, bought a house…Of course not for everyone the list would look like this, but …

THE 10 REASONS WHY I LOVE FALL

Although summer is my favourite season and I always feel a little sad when it is over, fall has so many nice things to offer too! Here is my list of things that get me excited about the changing seasons. My birthday is on the 25th of September! And very often I am on holiday at that time 🙂 Nice cosy sweaters to keep me warm. The colors! There is nothing more beautiful than watching the leaves change from green to yellow, to orange or deep red. And when they fall off the trees while the wind carries them away… Listening to my favourite song with a hot chocolate in my hand while it is raining outside. Making my morning coffee while still in my pyjamas and drinking it under my favourite blanket. Buying clothes. You need something for the new season right? Nice smelling candles and baths that last hours. Darker evenings mean there’s more time to cosy up! Cancel all my appointments; turn up the heat while watching a good movie or reading …

WEEKEND IN ANTWERP

Antwerp is without a doubt Belgium’s coolest city. It is perfect for a weekend trip. Not only does Antwerp offer you a great mix of medieval architecture and modern life, but it’s also ideal for shopping and going out. If you are a foodie like me, you would love it! Just like in every other Belgian city it’s all about that BELGIAN BEER! You can even have it in your meal. Order konijnenbil op grootmoeder’s wijze in De Groote Witte Arend. It is delicious! So if you didn’t order beer, chances are your meal will get you drunk 🙂 The interior is stylish; if you happen to be there on a nice day, the restaurant has a beautiful terrace where you can enjoy your dinner in a unique setting. Another recommendation is Billie’s Bier Kafeteria, just around the corner – it has a great beer selection as you may have guessed. I didn’t expect anything less of the Belgian beer but as I am not the biggest beer fan I was pleasantly surprised to discover …
