Declutter Your Computer + Plan!

I have to admit... I'm not exactly great at keeping my computer clean. Especially when I'm working on something new. I always get too excited and by the end of the day my desktop is crammed with files.

Declutter Your Computer + Plan!

It was a few weeks ago when I was checking my inbox and saw that I had received an interesting email from SingleHop. SingleHop is a technology company focused on private clouds and cloud computing technology. The team created a 3-week "Clean Computer Calendar" designed to help you prioritize, organize and safely store files that are currently living on your hard drive. I thought this would be interesting to all my co-bloggers out there, but also if you're just like me, failing to create some order on your laptop's hard disk. I think the calendar is very realistic and feasible, so I would recommend you try it and see for yourself :)

5 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Skip Breakfast

5 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Skip Breakfast

01: Energy level
If I don't eat breakfast in the morning (something I never do, but only did a few times in my life) I can't function properly or focus on the things I'm doing. Just give me an hour and I'll get a headache and I'll have to try really hard not to fall asleep again. 

02: I'm less grumpy
Ooh no breaky makes me grumpy. Take breakfast away and I'm no pleasure to be around. I don't need a lot, but I need something in my tummy before I start the day. This goes for all meals by the way: not eating doesn't make you happy. 

03: Metabolism
For those people trying to lose a few pounds: never skip meals. It sounds weird but you can actually eat yourself skinnier, instead of skipping meals. All skipping meals does for you is weight gain. Your body needs food!

04: It's yummy
I love experimenting with breakfast. My favourite breakfast are oats with yogurt, topped with fruits and a teaspoon of honey. It's delicious! I also like banana-oat muffins (made some over here) or a smoothie.

05: Time to relax before starting the day
I always take about 15 to 30 minutes for breakfast each day. If I have to, I'll just wake up earlier to have breakfast. I know that I'm not really useful when I don't eat in the morning, so it's standard calculated in my "wake up time". Besides, it's a great habit before you start a stressful day.

Breaky is awesome! 

Event: Solden Blogger Day!

Blog Event: Solden.be Blogger Day!

I think it was November when I received an invitation for Solden's Blogger Day! I was so excited — I had never been to a blogger event — and I asked my best friend Nathalie to come with me. I'm currently on an internship, so I was looking forward for weeks to this day. Last Friday we left around 6pm to Antwerp.

The event was at the Leopold Hotel. We didn't really know what to expect, so we just went in there a little uneasy but we received a warm welcome and nametags. I don't know how we missed the limo in front of the hotel — it must have arrived when we were already inside! Get ready for a teenie-tiny bit awkward picture of two best friends.

About 15 minutes after our arrival, we listened to guest speakers who talked about SEO and marketing. At the end of the presentations, we were given goodiebags and were offered drinks and tasty snacks/appetizers. Yummy! It was a great occasion to meet other bloggers and so we met lovely people from different kind of blogs!

Tired and with heavily loaded bags we went home and I couldn't stop smiling. Thank you Solden.be for this great experience!
