My carry-on bag essentials


In less than two weeks we are traveling to Fuerteventura. It’s probably time to start thinking about packing, but chances are I’ll end up packing the night before / a couple hours before the flight as usual. A benefit of packing last minute is that I rarely overpack. Nonetheless my carry-on bag tends to be pretty full, but I think I have it down to the essentials this time.

Healthy lifestyle changes you can actually stick to

Healthy lifestyle changes

I’ve been slowly trying to make some healthy lifestyle changes since last summer. I was doing really great in july and august by eating healthy and working out at home. But I’m a stress eater and the last couple of months have been crazy stressful. Which results in me coming home and thinking ‘I just want a glass of wine and some snacks to make everything better’. Starting now I want to try to get back to how I was doing this summer. I’m not a big fan of diets or going to the gym a couple times a week. I’m still one lazy little sucker and could never keep up with that. But making a couple small healthy lifestyle changes is doable.
