When you go through a rough breakup, all you want is some peace & quiet. This summer I broke up with my boyfriend after 4 years. Unfortunately not in a very charming way on his part. After dealing with all the stuff we own, the anger & the sadness, I needed some time away. And there it was: Pure Me Retreats, a 20 & 30 Something Retreat in the south of The Netherlands. A weekend full of yoga, massages and comfort food. Yes please!
Pure Me Retreats is all about women: mommies, mommies to be & 20’s & 30’s. Founder Mandy wanted to create a place where you can relax, ask any question you have about motherhood & find your inner peace again. Her husband Ken is the chef and cookes amazing meals every day.
We start the weekend with a game that is all about talents. Which talent do you neglect and which one is too dominant. This gives you a clear insight in what makes you unique and what you might be missing in your daily life.
Lunch & dinner are my favorite moments of the day. Ken is a talented chef and prepares the most delicious meals for us! I need those recipes! Homemade tuna salade, sweet potatoes from the oven with haloumi & Turkish Sucuk (sausage), fish soup & mussels and a whole lot more…
During the day we have a lot of free time. I read a book near the fireplace, go for a walk in the meadows and take a nap in the afternoon. I can’t remember the last time I did that…
Pure Me Retreats feels like a warm bath. Like someone has been hugging you the whole weekend. I loved the warmth of the fireplace, the walks, the yoga classes, the massage, the beautiful location & the high class comfort food by Ken! I found my zen again…at least for now!

During my stay I kept thinking about a quote I read, maybe it will help one of you aswell:
“I can choose to let it define me, confine me, refine me, outshine me, or I can choose to move on & leave it behind me.”
♥ A big thanks to Mandy, Ken, Carolien, Guusje & Rianne for making my stay so warm & comfortable!
