Capsule wardrobe technique | Updated wardrobe

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Since today school has started again after a one week break, shoot me. No, actually I don't find it that bad. School is good distraction and it keeps me busy. Also I like my classmates and all, so I'm good. I don't want this to be an all personal post again, so I thought it would be nice to tell you guys something about my updated wardrobe! I don't have pictures of my actual wardrobe though, but I will show you what I bought last week during my 'fall break'. I am already so excited!

What I bought:
White blouse - H&M, 19,95
Fake leather jacket - Forever21, €22,95
Green sweater (not exactly this one, but it looks similar) - H&M, €19,95
Denim jacket - Bershka, €24,99
T-shirt (the one I own is a little more pink-ish, with gold glitters woven through the fabric) - H&M, €9,95 

Here without you - 3 Doors Down

Thursday, October 15, 2015

It has been raining for hours now and it's super cold. I wanted to write about something, but didn't really know about what to write. As I was listening to some music I came up with something. Ready for some way too personal, this-rather-belongs-in-a-personal-dairy-or-just-shouldn't-be-shared-ish stuff? This is going to be a blog post about my favorite song and the weird reason for it; a sort of song dedication!

Right now, as I am writing this, I am listening to my favorite song (duh?) - and the best version - of all time: Here without you, the acoustic version, by 3 Doors Down. People who know me personally might know that I have claimed this song to be my favorite a long, long time ago. I don't really know why though, the music isn't so very outstanding and the song is a bit 'standard' and above all, very mainstream (it's by far 3 Doors Down's most populair song). I guess it was the lyrics that spoke to me at that time and I think you can guess why. This song is clearly about some sort of distance and let that be that one thing that has been playing a pretty big role in my life now for quite some damn time.

''I've heard this life is overrated, but I hope that it gets better as we gooo.'' Eargasm (and that's why this is my favorite version). 

Dedication to my fictional crush (jk) / book review Breakable

Tuesday, October 06, 2015

Gosh, such a long title. - Yes, it's true, in this article I am going to give you a book review! Not many people know I actually love love love reading. It's just that I never take the time to actually grab a book and read. When I'm on vacation though, I easily finish a book a day.

When I was in Italy last year, I read this book called 'Easy', written by Tammara Webber (in Dutch it's called 'Makkelijk'). I immediately loved the story, the characters in the story and how the story was written/told. You might be curious what this 'oh so lovely' book is about, so I searched for a summary of the book (yes, way too lazy to write a summary myself):
''When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a break-up. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, stalked by her ex’s frat brother, and failing a class for the first time in her life.

Her econ professor gives her an email address for Landon, the class tutor, who shows her that she’s still the same intelligent girl she’s always been. As Jacqueline becomes interested in more from her tutor than a better grade, his teasing responses make the feeling seem mutual. There’s just one problem—their only interactions are through email.

Meanwhile, a guy in her econ class proves his worth the first night she meets him. Nothing like her popular ex or her brainy tutor, Lucas sits on the back row, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. At a downtown club, he disappears after several dances that leave her on fire. When he asks if he can sketch her, alone in her room, she agrees—hoping for more.

Then Jacqueline discovers a withheld connection between her supportive tutor and her seductive classmate, her ex comes back into the picture, and her stalker escalates his attention by spreading rumors that they’ve hooked up. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.'' (source)

Personal talk: things I'm excited for

Monday, October 05, 2015

Lately I'm not very sure what to feel or how I should feel. As I said in my previous article, I haven't been feeling so very happy the past few months, due multiple reasons. But it's not like I feel totally depressed or something. Since November last year I'd always felt quite okay. I sort of got rid of my major insecurity issue back then and decided to accept the fact I am just a very introverted person. In February certain things happened which basically made me super happy and then from March on, certain things started to go down again. Such a pity. Over the summer I felt quite happy as well, although something had happened again and for some miracle reason I managed to block all my feelings and so I felt mostly very 'neutral'; neither happy, nor sad. Then when school started, all my feelings apparently had to come out and so I started feeling so depressed it literally scared me. Luckily that feeling only lasted for a few days. I think I could say that, since that time, I have been feeling 'neutral' again. It's not like I am intentionally blocking my feelings again, it's just that I don't feel anything particular most of the time. And some moments I get sad and other moments I get very happy and excited for life.

Although this week is a bit boring, I have some things coming up that make me really excited. A couple of weeks ago, I made the very good decision to meet up with an old friend of mine, whom I hadn't seen for over a year. We stopped being friends, because of a stupid fight, but when we spent some hours drinking coffee and eating pie in Rotterdam in the evening, it felt like we never stopped being friends.  No matter what happens, apparently I will always feel like I can trust this girl with all my heart and the fact we grew together again after such a long time, only proves how strong our friendship was(/is). I'm so happy I made friends again. We have planned to go out sometime, which is the first thing I am really excited for. We'll look slay and dance and have fun and meet new people (*ahum* boys, duh). I can't wait!

I'm obsessed with these two hair styles since I saw it on Teske's blog. I'll probably wear my hair like this when going out (my hair is aaalmost as long as on this photo, so yay!). Or on any other day. It's so lovely! (source)
