Documentary: Knock Down the House

Unfortunately, in 2022, women are still underrepresented in politics worldwide. Of course the numbers differ strongly per country, but when I look at my own country I am still very disappointed. In the House of Representatives in the Netherlands (‘de Tweede Kamer’), we currently have 57 women. That’s 38%, because there are 150 seats. Therefore, we need hope. That’s why today I am sharing the documentary: Knock Down the House.

Je Geld of Je Leven

Now that I have a full-time job, I have more money than I ever had in my life. I am so privileged that I have a stable income. In this phase of life, most people use that money to buy expensive things for themselves, a car, a house, phones, etc. Most people adapt their lifestyle to their salary. Today I want to tell you about a book that may inspire you to make different choices than most people. Today I want to tell you about the book Je Geld of Je Leven, written by Hanneke van Veen and Rob van Eeden.

Series: POSE

It’s been a while, but today I am sharing a must watch with you again. A series I’ve been hooked on from the very beginning, but which has ended recently. I am bummed that the series has come to an ending, I want more. I am sharing the series today because it’s simply amazing, but also because I think this series is important, socially speaking. Today I am telling you more about the series: POSE.

Destroying CO2 with Carbon Killer

I hear a lot of people around me complaining about the role of industry in this climate crisis. Why should we individuals change when industry just keeps on polluting? Earlier I wrote a post on why we shouldn’t think like that and that we all have a role in this crisis. But even if you disagree and think industry should change and not us individuals, I have something exciting to share. Today I am telling you about: destroying CO2 with Carbon Killing.

Beperkt Houdbaar by Sunny Bergman

This weekend I had an interesting chat with housemates. We discussed plastic surgery. So many different opinions were out there and I love that. Looking at the different perspectives I felt like there was an underlying subject to this discussion: the appearances of women. It remembered me of a documentary I have seen which discusses this matter from different perspectives. I hadn’t shared it here yet. That changes today, since I’m sharing ‘Beperkt Houdbaar’ by Sunny Bergman with you.

Documentary: Miss Americana

I guess I don’t have many idols. I mean, I have examples and people who inspire me, but almost never a superstar. Also, I have never screamed over a popstar. I have never been that girl who had posters of a specific idol on the wall. Artists are just people to me, so I never really understood the whole fangirling thing. However, recently I have seen a documentary of an idol which I really appreciated and I want to share it with you: I’ve seen Miss Americana by Taylor Swift.

Knap voor een Dik Meisje by Tatjana Almuli

It’s crazy how many blind spots I keep discovering over the years of reading non-fiction books. I keep learning about the world around me. And even more important: about the people around me. I keep learning about different perspectives. Today I want to talk about fatshaming, body neutrality and fatphobia. The book ‘Knap voor een Dik Meisje’ (translated: pretty for a fat girl) by Tatjana Almuli was the starting point for opening my eyes. Today I’ll tell you more about the book.

4 Podcast Tips – May 2021

Currently, I am listening to 58 different podcasts! A year or 3 ago, that number was 0. I’ve grown to loving podcasts more and more over the years. In 2020, when I had a job in production, I was listening about 8 hours of podcasts a day. I was a little addicted haha! However, over these years I have only shared 4 podcasts with you on this blog so far. I wrote this post where I shared 4 podcasts with you for the first time. Right now, I still enjoy those a lot, but it’s time to share more! I have 58 on my list, so I can write a whole lot of posts from here. Today I am sharing 4 podcasts that I absolutely love!
