10. In high school I graduated with an A+ for French. Now there’s only a B left lol

11. There was a time where I used to bake cakes, cupcakes and cookies every weekend. I used to make Khmissa (Hand of Fatima) cupcakes with a mold bought in Morocco. I posted it and got so many reactions that I started a small webshop selling these cutters. That was the first step towards my blog!

12. I’m addicted to watching series on Netflix. Some of the series I’ve watched: PLL, Reign, The Missing, American Horror Story, The Investigator, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Ray Donovan, Stranger Things, Narcos, The Killing.

15. I started Instagram in 2013 and it was never my plan to start a blog and become a blogger!

16. I am good at making different accents.

17. Every morning I remember at least two dreams and I can describe them precisely.

18. Because of the fact that I dream A LOT, I also sleep talk A LOT.¬†One time I scared the sh*t out of my best friend. In my sleep I whispered: ”go away, go away…” She filmed me saying this and I scared the sh*t out of myself too.

19. I always sleep with my door closed and it needs to be dark!

22. I could eat Surinamese Nasi every day!!¬†My other favorite meals are hamburgers & fries, sushi, shrimps and everything that ain’t healthy.
