Onion Soup

A little late, but here's the second post for this week. This onion soup is a very simple dish and doesn't look very spectacular, but it's quick and easy and it goes very well with the bread. You can leave out the white wine if you don't like it, it's totally optional.

It's Worth It Review

Today I've got another book review for you. I received It's Worth It by Masey McLain via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. So here we go!


I really enjoyed the book. It contains 21 short chapters, one for each day with an idea for a prayer or something to ask for in prayer at the end of each chapter. 
Masey's style is clear and accessible. It seems to me that she's a very authentic and amiable young woman.

On The Blog Week 28

Hey there!

Yet another week has passed with only one post on the blog - but there will be two posts next week. 


This week I told you that I am part of a launch team. I can't wait to get my hands on Life After! But before I review the novel, I will post a review on It's Worth it, a devotional for teen girls, on Tuesday. 

I hope to see you again next week! Thank you for visiting my blog this week!

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?

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.
