This is Susie

Just our life


I am a Dutch native, my boyfriend is an American. We have two pets our dog Bobbie, and our cat Nala. We live in a two-bedroom apartment near Utrecht in The Netherlands.

I like to hang out around the house. I cook, minimize my stuff and try to do something creative in my free time. On the weekends we like to go to an event or have lunch, dinner or drinks. I meet up with family and friends to talk each other’s ears off.

I blog about life (fun), finances (money) and Share recipes (food)

Susie’s Story

Have you ever considered we are all walking stories? Every person, no matter how big or small has a story to tell.

I am sharing some of my stories on this website and some on my channel. You can find videos and vlogs of me there. I am still learning how to film and video edit, but I am having fun.

The biggest challenge I have faced in life so far is losing loved ones, the second challenge is money. I have had to educate myself on this topic and even though I am nowhere near I want to be, I am doing a lot better than a few years ago and I am continuously improving my finances. The third challenge is my relationship with food and weight because I am recovering from an eating disorder, called Binge Eating Disorder.

Right now is the first time I seem to be winning these battles when it comes to money and weight as I am learning and growing along the way. Recovering from losing a loved one takes time to heal and you need to allow yourself the time to recover and heal.

I also enjoy minimizing my stuff, but I donĀ“t really like labeling myself, just as I don’t eat meat. What if in a few years this changes? You can change quite a bit over a few years, so labelling yourself vegetarian or minimalist might not be applicable in the future. So I don’t eat meat at the moment and I don’t have a lot of stuff.
