Life After Pre-Order Campaign - Part of a Launch Team

I was very excited when I received an invitation from WaterBrook to be part of the launch team for Katie Ganshert's new book Life After which will be released in April 2017. Well, I still am very excited!

I haven't read any of Katie Ganshert's novels before, but I am looking forward to reading Life After in a few weeks. As a part of the launch team, I will share some news about the book with you in the days and weeks leading up to the release day. Of course, I'll also share an honest review after I've read the book. 





And today is the day where the pre-order campaign starts! If you pre-order before the 16th of february, you'll get some awesome freebies including

On the Blog Week 26 & 27

Hey there!

There were two new posts on the blog in the last two weeks. But there will be more posts soon!



The first post was about my New Year's resolutions. I want to change a few things in 2017 and I will tell you if I'm making progress here on the blog!

The second post was a follow-up post for my modesty challenge: The Challenge: Wearing Skirts and Dresses ... in Winter. We had even more snow within the last two days, right now it should be about 30cm. I have never seen so much snow in my entire life. 

I hope to see you all again next week. Maybe we'll have even more snow by then (I hope not)!

The Challenge: Wearing Skirts and Dresses... in Winter

This is a short follow-up post to "The Challenge: Wearing Skirts and Dresses for a Whole Month (or maybe a little longer?)". In the last post, I mentioned that I was afraid I'd have to stop the challenge for a few weeks when it's too cold. Now I want to tell you how I'm doing and if my assumptions have been right or wrong. 




I still wear skirts and dresses as often as I can, but I have worn pants about one day a week. With snow and temperatures around 0°C/32°F, it is not that easy to find clothes that are warm enough to feel comfortable outside. 


What do I do to keep warm?


I usually wear a parm of woolen tights and a pair of thick leggings because my skirts provide little to no warmth at all. But I might need to add some leg warmers soon because it is still not warm enough. A pair of warm boots is also essential as well as my woolen coat when I go outside. 

Is it hard to dress modest and feminine in winter?


It is definitely not as easy as in summer, at least where I live. But it wasn't as hard as I expected it to be because I need to wear my pants with tights under them as well, so I need to wear multiple layers no matter how I dress. And since I spent most of my time indoors, I can just continue wearing the clothes I like for almost the whole day. Oh, but I am looking forward to the warmer days!

I hope that I can show you another modest inspiration soon. 

Do you have any tips on how to dress modest in winter?

New Year's Resolutions



Did you make any New Year's resolutions? 

Well, I did!

And here they are: 

I want to fast the 40 days leading up to Easter - not in the traditional sense of not eating anything, but I want to abstain from either sweets or non-vegan products. I'm going to document my fast on the blog, no matter what I decide on. 

I want to obtain my bachelor degree. 

I want to eat healthier and do some sport. 

I want to read 45 books (the same amount that I read in 2016). 

I want to get better at homemaking. 

I want to read my bible more often to strengthen my relationship with God. 

I want to continue wearing skirts and dresses as often as possible. 

What are your resolutions?

On The Blog Week 25 & 2016

Today is the last day in 2016!

So I decided to use this last "On the Blog" Post to present a Top 10 of the most viewed posts this year. 

But first, what was happening at the blog this week? There was only one post, a recipe for a Red Bell Pepper Soup With Feta Cheese and Ground Meat. A very long name for a very delicious dish!


2016 was a year of change for me.

Red Bell Pepper Soup With Feta Cheese & Ground Meat


This is a very delicious soup which is everything but boring! I found the recipe on pinterest and decided to change a few things. It turned out so good! My boyfriend really loved it (and I did, too).

A Savior Is Born - On The Blog Week 24

Merry Christmas!

I hope you're having a wonderful time while celebrating with your beloved family and friends. My boyfriend and I exchanged our gifts yesterday; today, we'll visit my family and the day after, his family. 


I didn't manage to post the recipe I promised you before Christmas, but it's going to be on the blog next week. This week, there were two posts on the blog and both of them were reviews. I recommended to you one of my favorite movies, Old Fashioned. And the other reviewed item was a book, Girl Defined

Thank you for stopping by this week.

Old Fashioned Review

I promised you a movie review and here it is! The holidays are perfect to finally watch all those movies that you didn't find the time to watch while being busy with school, work or your family and homemaking. "Old Fashioned" is one of my favorite movies and I've wanted to do a review for quite some time. If you love romantic and thoughtful movies, this one is for you! And it would also make a great present for anybody who likes romantic movies, too.

Girl Defined Review

I've got another book review for you, just in time for Christmas, if you still need a present. This time, it isn't a book about relationships, but it's about womanhood. It is called "Girl Defined - God's Radical Design for Beauty, Femininty and Identity" and I read it this summer. 


Doesn't it have a gorgeous cover? The interior design of the pages is also very beautifully made. But enough about the looks of this book, let's get to the content. The main purpose of the Girl Defined ministry by Kristen Clark and Bethany Baird is to help girls find back to God's design for womanhood. They did not only write this book, but they've got a whole blog dedicated to this topic.

On The Blog Week Twenty-Three

Hey there!

We bought a Christmas tree yesterday! It's a cute little tree and I can't wait to show it to you once we've decorated it. 


There were three posts on the blog this week to make up for the weeks where there was only one post on the blog. Two of them were Christmas-related. 

The first post was a recipe for delicious pizza rolls. In the second post, I shared my favorite Christmas memory. And the third one was about gift ideas for young ladies

For more gift ideas, make sure to stop by on the blog on Monday and Tuesday because I am going to review a book and a movie for you. But there's also going to be another recipe on the blog. 

Thank you for reading my blog this week. I hope to see you again next week.
