“Have you met a lover?” Do you also hate that question? Friends and family often mean well, but talking about love can be pretty tiring, especially if they share their advice with you … Check now 12 bad advice you get as a single girl.

# 1 Hey, you can start dating online!

Uhm… no, if you needed it, you were already on a dating site!

# 2 Maybe you should go out more!

As if you have to go fishing with a fishing rod for lovers at a fun event …

# 3 You are much too picky.

Hmm … Maybe you don’t want a lover at all ?! And who says it’s up to you?

# 4 It will be okay, you will find someone by yourself when you do not expect it.

Wow! Good advice. At the moment it just doesn’t help you so much …

# 5 Oh dude! Don’t worry, there are plenty of fish in the sea .

Thank you… In other words: will somebody ever come my way?

# 6 A lid fits each jar, so someone is walking around for you.

Bleggh … is this remark puking?

# 7 ‘You can have whatever we have! You just have to … “

Please stop! You did not ask for personal love advice.

# 8 “Agree with …”

Very nice all that help, but no thanks! As if you cannot fix your own dates.

# 9 “You also have to give those people at school a chance!”

Hmm … they must have never been to your school 😉

# 10 “You don’t need a relationship right away, you can also have fun dating?”

GAAP … you already came up with it yourself …

# 11 “It’s important that you don’t stay alone”

Cuckoo? You’re a teenager, shall we save that text for when you are 50?

# 12 “You must love yourself first before anyone else can do it”

Nice cliché. What nonsense!

7 x Unexpected Ways You Can Help the Environment

Living greener, we can no longer escape – luckily! Yet it is quite a challenge for many families. Because we are already so busy! These 7 tips make the world a little greener, and really don’t cause any extra work – promised!

easy tips for a better environment

Zero washed in the shower

The main ingredient of shampoo and soap is water. Quite strange, because you might as well add that water yourself when you are in the shower, right? In addition, the water in the shampoo and soap ensures that a (plastic) package is needed to store it. Fortunately, there is a very easy solution: buy soap bars. Most blocks of soap and shampoo are completely packaging-free! In addition, a soap bar also lasts much longer than a bottle of liquid soap or shampoo.

Washable handkerchiefs with nice print

How much is spotted in the winter? An average family uses a lot of paper tissues and tissues. A waste of money and the environment. Go back to days long gone when Grandpa always had a red handkerchief in his pocket, and buy nice little cotton handkerchiefs for your children. At the end of the day you throw them in the wash, and you’re done! With the small wipes you can also easily clean your faces. Wash the handkerchiefs in a small laundry bag in order not to lose them in the washing machine.

Reusable cotton pads for your makeup

You can easily remove your make-up from your face with cotton cotton pads. They are soft, easy to use and naturally washable. They can easily be put in the laundry bag with the aforementioned tissues!

Wet wax patches instead of pruning polishers

A well-prepared mother always has a pack of snuff polishers in her bag. But there is an easier and environmentally conscious solution to immediately reduce the large amount of waste: wet washing pads. Not only is it better for the environment, but you can also handle larger disasters – read: chocolate cords – with wet wipes. The perfect size are the IKEA washcloths. You can also cut an old towel into pieces and reuse it.

Fabric bread, fruit and vegetable bag

Do you buy your bread at the bakery? Then bring your own bread bag and ask if the baker puts the freshly cut bread in it. This way you reduce the use of plastic. You can do the same with the greengrocer!

Wetbags as a bag of bread

Do you want to bring something tasty for the trip? Then use wet bags. Wetbags are actually made for storing washable diapers, but these small printed bags also work great as a sandwich bag or for storing your wet wash cloths. Ideal!

Refillable and bulk packaging

Buy as many bulk packages as possible. A large package often has less packaging material than smaller packages. In addition, you can purchase as many refillable items as possible. Think of a pepper mill, a salt cellar, or a glass bottle of olive oil that you can refill.

Start Doing These Things for Yourself, especially if you are a (young) mother

Making time for yourself is always important (because: #selfcare), but perhaps that is even more important if you are a mother. We explain why it is so important to keep doing things for yourself and of course: a few handy tips on how to do that.

Life – especially with toddlers running around – can sometimes be quite overwhelming. If you free up little or no time for yourself, you will run out at a certain point.

Why it is important to do things for yourself


It is not for nothing that many psychologists and scientists argue in favor of always doing something for yourself. Right as a mother. After all, you need time to recharge.

It makes you happy

Do you like to read books ? Schedule a moment for it every day ( tip : not just before you go to sleep so that you fall asleep after one minute). Do you enjoy cycling, discovering new cities or just enjoying a day at the sauna ?

Continue to make this a priority. An exhausted you makes no one happy. We bet that after such a wonderful activity for yourself you can go full of energy again?

Great for you and for your children.

An example for your children
In the busy life with poop diapers , school, work, washing, cooking, eating and putting children to bed it is quite easy (read: almost inevitable) that you occasionally forget yourself. After all, you want to do well for your children. But are you really doing it in the best way by running past yourself completely and giving up everything for your children?

A mother who does not make time for herself and gives up everything for her children may not reflect the image you want to give to your child. It is healthy to keep doing things for yourself. You are more than a mother. You are also a woman. You can tell your children what you want, but studies show that they copy 80% of their parents’ behavior and 20% listen to ‘upbringing’.

Time to reflect

A moment of peace is a moment to reflect and reflect on what you have. When you are in the middle of the whirlwind, it is sometimes difficult to realize what you actually have and may be grateful for. By looking at life occasionally from a distance, you create space to see what you already have.

Remember that you are still you and not just a mother, wife or employee. That you keep doing things for yourself does not make you a bad mother. In fact: you set a good example for your children, you can never teach them about Enough early enough . You do you!

You can do these things

Of course, everyone will be happy with other things, but these are at least our favorite activities so that we can catch our breath and recharge ourselves.

  • walk : take an afternoon to walk through the woods, park or on the beach. The fresh wind and the sloshing waves always do us good.
  • Reading : whether it is a book or a magazine, reading ensures that you are completely in the moment and forget about external stimuli.
  • Go on the road and discover : did you know that our brain is happy with new events? Seeing a new landscape (from the waters in Friesland to the hills in Limburg or a museum in The Hague to a new coffee shop near you).
  • Wellness : no matter how you get used to it: practically doing little on a day and being pampered with steam baths, saunas, a pedicure or perhaps a massage almost everyone will be happy. There are few things that work as effectively as this quick fix .

Do not plan things that make you happy unless you run exhausted behind the facts. Preferably schedule them at least once a week.

Happy mom, happy children!


This is why you get drunk in the air so quickly

Want a glass of wine or beer on the plane? Not a bad idea. It is often a good start to your holiday, but beware, because you really get drunk in the air faster!

A good start to the holiday

The holiday season is almost starting again and many people take the plane to a sunny resort. Many take a beer or wine on the plane. A perfect start to a relaxing time. Enjoy and top, and also a good way to curb the fly nerves. But what many people often underestimate is the effect of alcohol when you are in the air. You get drunk much faster!

Faster feeling of being drunk

The air pressure in the plane is equal to the pressure that you feel when you are in the mountains, at an altitude of 1800 to 2200 meters. This is a lower pressure than normal, so your body absorbs less oxygen. Because your body absorbs less oxygen, you sometimes get dizzy. This is not a problem, but sometimes it makes you feel embarrassed without drinking alcohol. Because there is less oxygen in your blood, you can get drunk faster, while the alcohol level is no higher than normal.

If you normally only feel something when drinking 2 glasses of wine, it is quite possible that you will feel in the air with 1 glass of wine or even less light in your head.

Alcohol and flies dry out

You dry out faster on the plane because the air is very dry. And if you also drink alcohol, you will dry out even faster. If you want to drink wine, beer or other alcoholic drinks, it is wise to have a glass of water. It’s a good idea to drink enough water, even if you don’t drink alcohol.

Summer period with many drunk partygoers

For many airlines, the summer period is a period in which they have a lot to do with drunken partygoers on board. Sometimes things get so out of hand that the plane has to make a stopover to get drunk passengers off board. In other cases, the police await them when they land. Some companies argue for a ban on alcohol on board, but others make a lot of money on the consumption of alcohol, which means that the profit of these – often low-cost – companies is just a little more.

Have you ever been drunk on board?
