Little boys look good in leggings

Leggings are the most comfortable pants that exist. There is no doubt in that. If I could, I’d wear my workout leggings all the time. If grownups find leggings so comfortable, then why wouldn’t they be perfect for toddlers who are running around every hour of the day?! I found out about Sugarplum Lane through Instagram and after checking out the webshop, I knew I was in love with all the leggings they are offering. I paired these high-quality leggings up with a basic blue polo shirt and some sneakers, which gave the whole outfit a more boyish look!

10 miles: A new milestone


10m 2 10m 3

Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction.

As you guys know, I’m following this running schedule that I set up a couple of weeks ago. In December and January I did a great job on following this schedule, but for the last 3 weeks I was first injured and than sick, so I really couldn’t run. Last Monday I started working out again and let me tell you, it was so hard to even just run 3 miles. I felt so out of shape!

I kept going through with the schedule though and in the weekend I ran so much. On Saturday I ran 8 miles and on Sunday I ran 10 miles! It was the first time I ran that far! For my Belgian followers, this is 16 km! I ran it in 1:24:50, which is a pretty good time I think. I want to run the half marathon I’m training for in 1:50:00. I think that’s going to be pretty hard for me still, but I have 11 more weeks to train for that. I’m just telling you guys this, not to make you feel bad about yourself or to make it look like I’m perfect in what I’m doing. No, I’m telling you guys this because I’m a human, just like everyone else, who loves cupcakes and pizza and who actually has a hard time to stay in shape and to be healthy. Yet, even though it’s hard, I went through with it, and I’m motivated to keep on running the extra mile, until I’m fully satisfied. Continue reading

Running schedule: Week 2

I took a picture of the Redondo Beach Pier as I included this gorgeous place in my 9 mile run! I loved the light and how the place looks just so busy and peaceful in the same time.

As a promised a couple of posts ago, I would keep on posting about my running and workout schedule and since I didn’t do last weeks post yet, I’m sharing it with you right now!

In the second week, I ran every mile that I had to, according to my schedule. This means that last Sunday I ran 9 miles (14,5 km). This was pretty heavy for me, but while I was doing it I felt great!

When I’m running I just feel happy. I feel like it’s the kind of activity that frees me. I feel great and full of energy once I start my run. When I see views like the one on the picture I feel incredibly blessed to be living in California and to be able to see the beauty of this place whenever I want to.  Continue reading

Sometimes you don’t need to visit the monuments in a city to get to know the city or to capture some nice moment in it. Sometimes you should just appreciate the beauty of the random streets you’re walking in. For me personally the beauty of a place is in its details. I like passing a street with nice flowers, a beautiful sunset, the typical view of the Californian palm trees… Continue reading
