About me

PillowHugHello and welcome to my blog! I’m Dionne, a graphic designer from the Netherlands who’s also a huge bookaddict and lover of movies and series. My background story might be a bit unusual and the reason why this blog actually exists starts three years ago when I got very sick. From one day to another I got so sick that I couldn’t even walk or move out of my bed. Doctors didn’t find anything, but also didn’t take it serious, meanwhile my situation got worse and worse until one and a half year later, when I finally got the answer to all my symptoms. Sadly it wasn’t the one I was hoping for, no simple cure, no simple disease that could be solved with a so-called protocol to follow, it was lyme disease. At that point it was already so severe that I was in the latest stage and therefore got chronic.

Lyme made me miss a lot, but I’ve also learned a lot already in my journey of getting healthy again, I rediscovered my love for books, I appreciate the little things in life a 1000 times more, I learned a lot about the food and health industry (and since then I’m gluten-, sugar- and dairyfree all the way), I try to use as many natural products as I can to help my body heal and through it all I had a fast course of what’s actually important to me in life.

What can you expect on this blog?

Books

You will find all kinds of bookish posts here, but mainly reviews and recommendations. I like to read diverse so there will be many genres from Fantasy, Young Adult and Sciencefiction to Historical, Feelgood and Contemporary books. Not only will they be in English, but some of them will also be in Dutch or both languages.

Movies | Series

As you can imagine I’ve seen many many series and movies because I have to rest a lot. This also means that I can help you with finding the best series in literally any genre ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love to make lists so prepare to see a lot of them.

Lifestyle

I will literally show anything here, but there will mainly be reviews of natural products which are good for you and the environment or just make a healthy living lifestyle more easy.

Design

Last but not least, as a graphic designer I of course love to design, I mainly work with Adobe Photoshop, illustrator and Indesign and will be sharing my designs / products that can be found in my Society6 shop.
