Favorite songs of the moment - September

Monday, September 28, 2015

It's been a while since I wrote an article about my favorite music of the moment. I believe the last one is from August last year. Wow! In this article I'll share some of the songs with you I've been frequently listening to in the month September.

The curse of being introverted

Saturday, September 26, 2015

Yesterday evening I was watching ''Expiditie Robinson'' with my dad and his wife. Expeditie Robinson is a TV show in the Netherlands, in which sixteen contestants (famous Dutch people) are put into a survival situation and compete in a variety of physical challenges. This season, a popular, Dutch youtuber participated in the TV show. Her name is Teske and in yesterday's episode, it turned out she had to leave the the show, because the other particpants had voted her away (each episode someone gets voted away). The thing is: Teske had seen this coming. During the episode it became clear that Teske had felt like she didn't fit in the group at all during her stay. And at the end of the episode, when it turned out she had to leave, she told the TV host that she is ''just a very introverted person''. As I was watching the episode, I could relate myself to Teske so much. I am an introverted person myself too. When I told my parents I could really relate to how Teske felt during her Expeditie Robinson adventure, they told me it should be an eye-opener for me. Because, although this TV show is just a game, it's kind of like how it goes in real life too: when you don't fit in the group, are introverted and a quiet person, people easily see you as a weak person. As the person who gets ''voted away'' in life. According to my parents I should take this as a lesson, but I was thinking: is it really a curse to be an introverted person in today's society? 

If I only could play the guitar

Saturday, September 19, 2015

I love music to the moon and back. I love listening to it, I love going to concerts (it's been exactly one year and two days since I went to the Three Days Grace concert. Omggg) and above all, I LOVE playing it. As you might all know I play keyboard since about two years. Not for the longest time, indeed, but I keep getting better and better and I'm determined to become as good at it as I can get. What I don't understand about myself is why I started learning about/playing music so 'late'. Most musicians  I know started playing their musical instrument around the age of 10 or something. And I'm jealous, because they are all so super good now and I am... not. Well, I'll tell you something: once I wanted to play a musical instrument when I was much younger too. And that musical intrument was acoustic guitar.

The capsule wardrobe technique - Part two

Friday, September 18, 2015

In my previous article I wrote about the 'capsule wardrobe technique' and I showed you my 'must have basic items-list'. In this article I'd like to show you what my 'perfect capsule wardrobe' would look like. I will also tell you what basics I already own. Keep reading if you are interested!

All the items I will show you are overall dark colored and maybe more meant to be worn during the fall and winter time, but I did my best to choose items that wearable in all seasons. Also, I didn't include accessoires, jewellery and shoes.

FASHION | The capsule wardrobe technique

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Since about a year I am totally obsessed by this particular way of building up your wardrobe: the 'capsule wardrobe technique'. It means you are basically building up a wardrobe only consisting out of really versatile pieces you LOVE to wear. The practical thing about this technique is the fact that all pieces should be able to go well together. That way you'll never have a day anymore on which you don't know what to wear. Which is, obviously, my ultimate goal (and what girl would actually disagree with me?). I'd like to dedicate this article to the capsule wardrobe technique, my plan to actually get this desirable wardrobe and I will tell you what I think are the ultimate wardrobe essentials. Keep on reading if you are interested!

Updated: morning routine

Monday, September 14, 2015

Hey guys! I thought it would be cool to give you an update on my morning routine. Complete with photos!

You can read my previous-written morning-routine articles right here: 
#1#2#3 (unfortunately they're all written in Dutch)

On a regular school day (on which school starts 08:15 AM) my alarm goes off at 06:00 o' clock in the morning. Yes, way too early to function normally, but somehow I have managed to get up every single day so far. 

I made these pictures on a Thursday, when my first class always starts at 11:30 AM. And so, I got up at 09:00 AM. Sometimes I get dressed right after I get out of bed, but on mornings like this, when I don't have to rush so much, I rather have breakfast before getting dressed. And so I went downstairs to eat something.

Yay, finally my new lay-out is up on the blog! I didn't create this template myself, but it took me a lot of time to edit the HTML (the original template looks way different than how this one looks now). Luckily it's aaalmost perfect now. I only need to fix the drop down menu and I need to add in my categories and a search balk somewhere. Oh well, I hope you guys like my new lay-out. Please, let me know in the comments! - keep on reading for the actual blog post -
