Progress Bitches!


Hi there!

It’s been a while, I know, my apologies.
But I can finely tell you that I’m doing better! Lots and lots better! you know the kind of better where you can drink a beer and not nearly die… Yay!

I told you guys about my new job as the new back-office at HQT, and I’m still loving every minute of it! My colleagues are the bomb and make everyday into a fun day at the office<3
Even outside of the office we have the bestest of times:)


This is me and Maaike (my respected colleague and friend) and her little bundle of joy, chilling at Aqua Best.

It’s wonderful to be able to finely enjoy the finer things in life again, but it’s still a bit surreal, also because I can’t share this lovely time with RJ. It’s a good thing to be on your own again and dust yourself off and build a life with whatever you’re given, nobody said it was easy (insert Coldplay song here– sobs uncontrollably).

On another note! I’ve had a small procedure done at the hospital last Friday, they went inside of me to check if everything was OK with my bowels, eeehw Iris that’s gross! I know I’m sorry but it had to be done. As far as we know now I’m all good so I can continue to take my medicine and eat whatever the hell I want! Except for lactose:(

Anyways, my belly was not very happy with me because I had to take a lot of disgusting fluid before the procedure took place, here I will show you my belly in protest.. dear god I hate this.


I can assure you that after the procedure my belly went back to it’s flat self, thank heavens!

Now I still feel a bit woozy, but I’m resting my skinny ass in bed and it’s back to work tomorrow so wish me luck!

Thank you so much for checking up on me, please leave a message when you have any questions or just want to say hi!

Lots of love from me<3

First day at the office



I got meself a real job! you know, one where you have your owm desk and feel all grown up and stuff…  If only I acted like one;p

Ik heb een korte tijd bij BMW gewerkt maar zij zochten toch iemand die meteen 40 uur kon werken en aangezien ik nog in mijn opbouw fase zit en nog niet mijn volledige kracht terug heb, na lange tijd thuis gezeten te hebben, hadden ze iemand anders gevonden voor mijn functie.

Ik ben nu nog bezig met aansterken en leren omgaan met de pijn met een heel team om me heen voor 6 maanden lang 3 keer in de week 1,5 uur.

Nu ben ik onlangs aangenomen als Backoffice Medewerker bij HQT, een technisch detacheringsbedrijf, of te wel HR werkzaamheden verrichten bij een uitzend bureau die gespecialiseerd is in het plaatsen en zoeken van technisch opgeleiden mensen. interessant he! haha.

Vandaag mijn eerste dag gehad en ik ben super enthousiast over het team en the future! Hopelijk werkt mijn buik mooi mee en kan ik mijn leven weer een beetje oppakken. Ik moet soms nog even wennen als ik veel onder de mensen ben, ik heb stiekem toch vrij lang thuis gezeten met pijn en dat creëert op een gegeven moment wel een eigen wereldje, een klein, alleenig wereldje.

Ik ben heel erg benieuwd ‘what the futere holds for me’ en hopelijk komt mij nog veel positiviteit tegemoet:)

O.a.o.n. Ik heb super veel zin in Koningsdag, ik hoop jullie ook! Misschien zie ik sommige van jullie voorbij huppelen op het stadhuis plein, nu alleen nog hopen op lekker weer! come on April, give us some summer vibes!

Love and kisses!!




New Job


Hi peeps!

This means a lot to me, being able to make my own money, maybe not a lot but you gotta (re)start somewhere!

I’ve recently started my new job  as the front desk secretary of BMW.


I’m super existed and after my few days of training I can’t wait to make my first day on my own; answering calls, keeping up with all the paperwork, E-mails and making sure every client who walking through the door gets the Full BMW experience!

I feel like a human again and hopefully it’ll only get better from here on out! “From here on out”…? That sounds like bad English… idk haha correct me if I’m wrong;)

I’m still taking the usual medication and eating lot’s and whatever I want (hah!) and haven’t felt better in literally a year. I also restarted my Chiropractic treatments at another facility here in Eindhoven and it’s still helping a lot! I got into a little bit of a funk after I had to quite my treatments at Top Chiropractic and the pain slowly wiggled his way back in but I feel it’s much more under control now… could be different in an hour but right now it feels like we’re on the right track.

I’m not saying the pain is completely gone or less intense, but the periods of time where I have less or no pain gets longer and longer so whenever I do have pain (on several occasions during the day) I’ve build up the physical energy and mental strength to take the hit. It still puts me down sometimes or makes me feel powerless but I’m taking it day by day.

This was my little update, hope you’ve enjoyed it or found it useful in any way. I’m still open for questions and love to hear about your experience with anything you’d like to share. Misery likes company;).

Please share happy things too!

For anyone who’s wondering the new BGB Beauty bags are in the development stage and you can probably tell by the picture but the majority of you have chosen the Marble print!!!1488639138508
