In my previous monthly diary I wrote that my self esteem wasn’t that great. This month, I can luckily
share positive diary. I had mentioned that I was slowly feeling better and that summer had finally begun for me. I can now say that August made up for all the tears and stressful moments of the past months. It definitely brought me peace of mind and the relaxation that I needed so badly.  So what happened in August? In short: I booked two trips, one of which I went on in August. I have just returned from the second trip. Travel is the best cure for everything I can tell you.
Apart from that, it was my mom’s birthday and I spend lots of time resting and making self reflections, which is necessary from time to time. Oh and I am so close to 800 blog followers! I can’t believe it 🙂

Curious what my month was like? Keep reading.


Due to the crazy summer, I had neglected my healthy eating pattern and didn’t cook that much and if I did, it wasn’t that healthy. I ate quite some junk food and ordered food. Once I felt a bit better, I got back my motivation to cook again.


You might know by now that I have this thing for pretty buildings


Avocado toast with a boiled egg for breakfast. Yummmm


Ehh.. August is still summer so can you please disappear, rain?


Ginger shot time!


Catching up with a friend


I shared this outfit on the blog. What do you think?


More rain. I mean, why?


I spotted these Baileys lava cakes at the supermarket. I wanted to get those so badly but I stayed strong and resisted the temptation.


They were offering samples of Starbucks cold coffee and I tried one.


It had been a while since I made a smoothie bowl for breakfast. Still a fave.


Ok, a little snack won’t hurt anyone.


Neither does a glass of wine (ha-ha)


True


On 25 August it was my mom’s birthday! We went out for a birthday lunch and had some bubbles. LOVE YOU MOM ❤


The day after my moms birthday it was time to travel to Vienna. Here I was having an Iced Cappuccino, which is my favorite cold coffee at Starbucks. What is your favorite drink at Starbucks?


Off to Vienna, baby!

My monthly diary stops here as I will be sharing a separate post on Vienna (and Malaga).

Has everyone returned from their holidays already? Or are you still going on a trip soon? Let me know in the comments 🙂
