You are now at the “FAQ” part of this blog. In the FAQ you will find common questions I get and an answer to that question. If you are still doubting on asking one and you’re not quiet sure if the topic is listed in the FAQ-menu, please feel free to contact us.
#1 How do you come up with content ideas for things to post about?
I often brainstorm on what I will write about before I post it. As said on this blog, I like lifestyle, traveling, interiors, etc. so I will probably write or add something about that, but it could depend, like when a new must-seen hype conquers the world and there’s no deny I need to write about that. When I already know what I want to add, I go ahead and write it down as soon as I figured out how I want it to be represented.
I always find something interesting, and find it even more interesting if I can share my thoughts to the world.
#2 Which camera do you particularly use?
First of all, you don’t need a high-class fancy or maxed-out camera to take great pictures, as long as you know HOW to take them. I’m currently using the default camera from my ‘iPhone 8 Plus’ and it works fine! I’ve put a grid on it (accessible in the Settings-app on your iPhone) and it let’s you make beautiful angled pictures, that way you know they aren’t crooked. I’m also usin the ‘Nikon D3400‘ with 18-105 VR Lens – very happy with that camera!
#3 How do you edit your pictures?
I edit my pictures straight on my phone, where I use VSCO, Snapseed, Facetune (please don’t exaggerate with this app!) and UNUM. I mostly use the apps to edit my pictures to upload them to Instagram (and Twitter), but sometimes I use these apps for my blog as well.
UNUM (iOS/Android) is a great app to insert all of your pictures you may or may not upload to your Instagram or other socials and order them in a way you want it. You are able to drag pictures, delete them and share them. With this app you will absolutely slay your Instafeed!
#4 Who takes these pictures?
I normally take all of my pictures myself because I’m really into photagraphy, but when I’m on the picture someone else like my mom, sister, friend or someone totally new takes the shot as it speaks from its self. You do not need to be affraid to ask a total stranger to take the perfect shot, most people love to do it and if you give them the right angle and position, the perfect shot will be taken in no time (before you even know, the person taking the shot is a blogger/Instagrammer as well – new bestie!).
#5 Which social medias do you use/how can I follow you?
I use Polyvore to make my fashion templates with number to make it looks clarifying.
Throughout the blog you will find a lot of sharing options. At the sidebar of the blog you will also find icons that will redirect you to my social media.
#6 Do you have hobbies/do sports?
I love to run sometimes, especially when the sun goes down and it’s almost dark. I like to explore cities and that means… WALKING A LOT – isn’t that an exercise also?
I used to do material arts (taekwondo and jujutsu) when I was younger. Since I became an interior design/architect student 3 years ago and now still study it, I normally fill my days with drawing and blogging of course and that’s mostly an indoor activity.
#7 Do you earn money with this blog?
I don’t have any feature or advertising widget that allows me to get full-charged money (to have a quality blog without advertisements). I sometimes get messages for business inquiries to share one of their product. I created this blog as result of one of my passions and hobbies.
I use Skimlinks as getting alternative payment options from this blog, they give away a tiny amount of their profits when a blogger puts a hyperlink into a post, photo, quote, etc. You basically get rewarded by sharing a brand’s product or name.
#8 Do you think blogging is fun, got any tips?
IT’S SO FUN! Blogging is a great way to write your thought down but then online. You encourage people to read your blog and they usually love to be a part of it. Sharing something with the world and getting positive comments from it is a pleasent feeling!
I would recommend you to use either WordPress, Wix, Blogger or Bloglovin’, they’re both users friendly websites to create your own blog. To get the most out of your blog, you do need to pay a plan/monthly subscription (that means spending money on it). I would recommend you to search a plan that fits with you – most plans offer “no-advertising” and “own domain name” which is a true must-have. Having a (premium) website theme makes everything professional and more visually appealing.

#11 Which music do you listen?
I primary listen to rap, pop and Lorde. But I can listen to most genres.
#12 Do you make all the recipes yourself/are these all unique and not copied?
Yes, all of the recipes and dishes are made frim my own hand. I like (at least try) to be unique and as a result I create these recipes my own. It could be that sometimes it is copied from a recipe, but this is probably without me knowing it already existed. Sometimes a variation of a recipe could occur too.
