Hey lovelies 💕,
Today I will share with you all my favourites of the month April. I can sum up that I saw many beautiful flowers 💐🌷🌸🌹🌼, had a lot of fun with my family, wrote a lot of pen pal letters, received some beautiful letters and celebrated the birthday of my brother and his wife. I will tell you all about it and also show you with some nice pictures. I hope you will like it.
Some things I did:
At the beginning of April I was in Spain and had to do an internship interview at the 5 stars hotel 🏩 🍇 with the vine yards. It went pretty well even though I was suffering from so much anxiety and I thought I wouldn’t be able to cope. I’m proud I faced my fear. I wrote about my whole experience in this blog post.
Tulip fields in The Netherlands 🌷
I went to see the tulip fields in The Netherlands with my mother on Easter. It was so beautiful and magical to see! 😍🌷✨ I have never been to these tulip fields. You can see more of the pictures I took in my photo diary post. I’m happy I grew up in a country full of flowers. Flower power always! 💐 I’m forever a hippie girl! ✌️
Bloemencorso in Haarlem
I went to the Bloemencorso in Haarlem with my mother. We loved it so much as we both love flowers. It’s been many years since I didn’t go because I was in Spain. I always go whenever I get the chance because it’s a unique event in Haarlem. It’s definitely my favourite event ever! 😍 Flowers make me so happy. They are so colourful and beautiful 🌼🌻. They also smell so good. Flowers make this world better. It’s also called Flower Parade. It’s every year. The first prize was for the one with the 🐍, 🐢, and 🐲. The second prize was for the one you can see on the picture which is called “Rise of the phoenix”. The third prize was for the one with the tulips from Keukenhof. They are all so beautiful. We loved them.
It’s incredible how they all make this with flowers. It takes a lot of work. They mostly use hyacinths, tulips and daffodils. It always amazes me. Lots of tourists come to Haarlem to see this event. So yeahhh, visit Haarlem and go to Keukenhof which is the beautiful tulip park in Lisse 🌷 You will not regret it 😍
Lovely things I did with my family 👪:
Eating pancakes 🥞
I didn’t celebrate King’s Day in The Netherlands which was the 27th of April. This day we celebrate the birthday of our King. It was bad weather and I also didn’t felt well because of stomach cramps before my period so I stayed at home. I enjoyed the day writing cards and eating delicious pancakes which are called Pannenkoeken in Dutch. My daddy always makes the most delicious ones! 😋😍 It’s definitely one of my favourite food ever.
Fondue with the family
I ate delicious Dutch fondue with potatoes, huzaren salad and as dessert vanilla ice cream and fruits. It was all so delicious mmm! We celebrated the birthday of my brother Rafael and Verónica together with my parents.
Easter time 🐰🐇🐣💗
I celebrated Easter Monday with the whole family. My two brothers, their wifes, and my little niece came to our house. It was so nice to be all together. It was also 25 degrees so we could all enjoy a delicious lunch with a boiled egg in the garden🥚 My little niece was also playing with water 💦 in the garden and was making me wet with a spray haha it was really fun. We also went to play with her in the park. I had such a nice day with my lovely family who I love so much 😍
Birthday party of Rafael and Verónica 🎉🎂🎈🎁
My mother and I went to the home of my brother to celebrate his birthday and the one of Verónica. It was nice to see their lovely friends again and eat delicious food 😋 We ate delicious soup haha my brother loves soup as much as I do. We also ate cheese 🧀, nachos with guacamole sauce which I love so much, chips, olives, bread, and much more. There was also a red sauce from Bulgeria which I really loved. I gave them two cards I made and some presents including beautiful roses 🌹
Spring time in the park
We had a week of good weather 🌞 in The Netherlands so I could enjoy the sunshine in my garden. We also enjoyed some walks in the park. I also enjoyed a delicious Easter breakfast with a boiled egg, bread, croissant and orange juice. Before we went to see the flower fields we went for a nice bike ride through the park near to my house. We also took the ferry which is for free and you can go with the bike. It’s so nice to enjoy the river the Spaarne in Haarlem 🚲💗⛴️
Other awesome things of April 💕:
Tickets to fly to Spain are booked 🇪🇸
I’m going to Spain at the end of May until at least mid September with my mother. I hope that I can find a job too and I also can’t wait to enjoy Summer time and go surfing! 😍🏄♀️ Summer in Spain is the best.I always spend my Summers there. It’s always sunny, 30 or even 40 degrees. I love sunshine 🌞. Summer is my favourite season but 40 degrees is too much for me hahah. In The Netherlands it can rain a lot in the Summer so I better be in Spain. I also love to travel with my friends and mother to the beach. I can’t wait to plan some awesome Summer plans!

I’m so happy I reached more than 300 followers on my blog! It really mean the most to me that people read my blog, like it and comment. I love blogging. It makes me feel inspired and so happy.

I bought some nice stationery in Spain and on Aliexpress. In Spain I bought all the smilies stickers and travelling stickers for just €1 in a Chinese Bazar. On AliExpress I bought beautiful writing paper. It’s difficult to find these in the shops so I preferred to buy it online. It costed €12 for 80 sheets from 8 different designs. I love the floral designs so much 🌸💐🌼🌺
Receiving beautiful letters from my pen pals 😍✒️
I love pen palling and I have some more pen pals right now. They all make me so happy. I received beautiful letters from them which I will cherish forever. I received beautiful letters from Sophia who always cheer me up and make me happy. She even sent me a beautiful handmade headband and earrings. I also love the cards she sent and the flowers seeds. I also received beautiful snail mail from Rosie. I loved the sticky notes and the cards with beautiful quotes. Finally, I also received a beautiful letter from Jess who sent me pretty sticky notes from Disney and stickers too. I love to make new friendships through writing 📝 It’s so therapeutic and so personal 💗.
Thank you all for reading this blog post. What did you do in April? What was your favourite from my list? Do you also love pen palling? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.
