Books in my backpack

Hela hola bonjour - you guys must've thought you'd never hear from me again! The fact that my last (decent) blogpost appeared more than four months ago is something I won't talk about - nobody's got time for 25 kilometers of excuses and reasons and well, to be totally honest - my bullshit. Hah! Well, I'm back guys. I guess. To get back into the blogging bizz (question mark-question mark?) I combined two of my favorite material goods today: books and bags. THEBAGSTORE (link) sent me a beautiful backpack (whut whut to me?! Woohoo!), and I also recently added some new books to my to-read collection. I was planning to read them during my summer holiday but it turned out to be a bit less calm than I thought it would (no no, I promised, I won't talk about my absency). Keep on reading to see photographs of the awesome bag - and to find out which books I want to read over the course of the next few weeks.

A good time for a new project

Hi everybody! In case this post pops up in your Bloglovin' feed and it makes you wonder who the bleep Lemontierres is again, this would not be a surprise to me. It's a fact that I haven't really been the most active blogger ever (major understatement alert) and this makes me a bit sad. The last post I shared on here dates about 2 months back and I am sure this makes me sadder than it makes you. This inactivity is not because I've suddenly lost my passion for photography and writing - it's just that the last few months of my life have been all about thinking and writing and I really feel like sharing more Dutch texts with a philosophical tone. This is the reason why I've started a new little project. Lemontierres is not dead - not at all! - she's just asleep, and once I have more time and especially space in my head to work on recipes and photography projects again I'll make sure to wake her up. It's just that I've created a little sister for her - maybe even a big sister, with texts about topics that really matter to me at this point in my life, and less happy and pretty photographs (even though I still love that and have my Instagram for that, @lemontierres). 

If you're Dutch and interested in what I am up to:

If you decide to take a look and you like what I created, you can follow me on Bloglovin' (click here to go there). I'd love to hear what you think :-)

Lots of love and see you soon,


Vegan Date-Nut-Coconut Bites

I never knew I liked dates, until I recently tried a date bar for the first time. That moment marked a point of no return: whenever I visit a place that sells date bars, I simply must have one. Because I also have to be able to afford other things than my rent and daty-goodness I decided to recreate my favorite bar - and it was a huge success! Keep on reading if you love dates just as much as I do, or if you simply want to try out something new. Oh, and these bars are 100% vegan proof as well!

Playlist · Unexpected Sunny Days

You're still dreaming and the chirping sound of birds singing wakes you up - when you open your eyes you notice the Sun has already found its way through the curtains, and getting up isn't hard because the cold air already touched your legs before. You throw on a cosy sweater because the Sun outside isn't strong enough to change the temperature inside yet - but that doesn't matter because it's March and the Sun is shining!
