I think the majority of bloggers use an iPhone. Nevertheless, I use an Android phone. I have always used Android, and I am very content with it. I have had my hands on an iPhone too, and I know how the things work - and yes I might even switch to Apple after a while - but for now I am a happy owner of a beautiful Sony Xperia Z3. My main reason for using this phone is that the screen size is huge (5.2 inches) and no iPhone device has exceeded that size as far as I know. I like having a big screen to work on. I do also own an iPad which I only use for gaming and not so much for blogging.
I know blogging on a phone might be a bit of a difficulty as it's just a lot smaller and it doesn't edit so smoothly as on a laptop - but as an avid blogger you might wanna use your phone as an editing tool on the go. In a never ending pool of app supply it can be hard to find the right apps to use for blogging. In this post I made a list of apps I use myself for blogging. Some of the apps might be available for iPhone as well.

Some of you might know that my fiancé and I are getting married on the 4th of June this year. I am excited and scared at the same time. Of course I have no doubt about marrying him, but all the planning and having so many people involved just scares me a lot.
On Twitter I held a poll asking if you guys would like to see me doing wedding updates every month on my blog. The majority of you answered with a big YES! - so this post is the beginning of my wedding-series, which I will try to continue every month here on my blog. I write about things I feel, and about the progress in planning - as some sort of a diary. This series is completely in collaboration with my fiancé JT.

A few months ago I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by both Lee from Lee Thrifts and Kaci from Earth to Kace. Thank you both so much for the nomination!
Because of the November blogchallenge, and the hectic Christmas time, I hadn't been able to write about the award - until now.
First, let me introduce you. What exactly is the Liebster Award? I must say that I hadn't heard of it either before I got nominated. The Liebster Award is an award given by bloggers to other -smaller- bloggers. As a (beginning) blogger, being nominated for the Award can be very beneficial, as it drives traffic to your blog - from the bigger blog that nominated you. The Award only exists on the internet - as some sort of chain that you can either choose to pass on, or to interrupt.

Part two of my Christmas Holiday is finally here! Better late than never I'd say. For new year's - we'd been invited by some of our friends in Copenhagen. As some of you might know, I've done a summer school in Copenhagen for a month in 2014 - so for me it felt good to be back again! I absolutely love Copenhagen, and this was the first time that my fiancé and I got the chance to properly see the city. We were only there for three full days - as we traveled on the first and the last day.
To get there, we took the bus from Oslo to Copenhagen, all the way down to Sweden. On our way we drove through Göteborg, Lund and Malmö. When we departed from Oslo, it was absolutely boiling hot in the bus, as there was something wrong with the airconditioning. It was very humid, and I could barely breath. It was actually quite scary. Luckily we got to change bus in Göteborg, so the rest of out journey we had some better comfort.

I know this post is a bit late, but my December was packed with other things, so I simply didn't find the time to do this post. So, here's my update on the Glossybox I got in December 2015. This box was called the 'Positivity Box' and the goodies were packed in a cute pink decorated box with inspirational quotes on it. When I opened the box, I was welcomed by this positive quote 'On a scale from 1 to 10, you're an 11'.
The box felt very heavy - as it contained 5 full size items this month! Curious what was inside? Keep reading!

In 2015, I had a whole new cinema-experience. Do you know that feeling when you're sitting ready to watch the film but first have to go through 15 minutes of cinema advertorials and trailers for upcoming films? And that, with every trailer, you think or say to your neighbour ''We HAVE to see that film too!!"? Well, my fiancé and I decided to just -YOLO- go to every film we wanted to watch this year! So these are the films I've seen in the cinema in 2015. I'm not sure if I put them in chronological order, but that doesn't matter. I will also tell you if I recommend the films or not!

With both my birthday and Christmas celebrations in less than a week, I can say that from 22 december until 27 december, my life in Norway has been crazy. In this post I will give you a photo impression of this intense week, and I will tell you about the presents I got.
22 December - My birthday.
On my birthday, we went on a roadtrip to Gothenborg, Sweden. This was a present from my fiancé. We went with his brother and my two younger brothers who came to Norway for Christmas. In Gothenborg I met one of my friends from my former uni - as she does a semester at a university in Gothenborg. It was very nice to see her again. She gave me Swedish tea and cookies for my birthday! (see pictures of tea below) We did some Christmas shopping and ate at Macdonalds (
From my brothers I got a new Sherlock Holmes phone case, and from my parents I got the new K3 cd (only the Dutch will know who they are :p), and Sí from Giorgio Armani. I also got a Smoothie-to-go smoothie maker from my sister in law - which is very very useful as I LOVE smoothies.
