Things I’ve been loving, picture edition

Our fun and summery weekend in Zeeland and Ghent last week ♥ Seeing my family again and having dinner at Kim’s. ♥ Wearing summershoes and rolling up the ends of my jeans (finally!) ♥ Spending my life with my best friend ♥

Our “new” heater. ♥ A lot of work went into this one! It was originally a very bright orange and we spraypainted it ivory. A friend of ours also installed a LED light in it, so in the evening you can actually turn it on and see a yellow or purple light behind the round glass. I love it! It’s purely for decorating purposes, but I think it really adds something to our living room.

Our new tv, a housewarming/birthday gift from my dad. Quite the surprise! Also: pretty flowers (such a shame they only last a couple of days).

The only time I buy a magazine? If it has the title De Groene Amsterdammer on it’s cover or when I’m on vacation. It’s not really in my weekly budget. Our weekend to Zeeland felt like a vacation (it technically was), so I allowed myself to buy one. I’m really into interior design lately and I loved perusing this. So much inspiration! Maybe I should buy it more often.

Once a year I treat myself to new skin stuff. It costs a fortune, but I love using it everyday. It’s well worth it’s money I think! I’m also trying out a new moisturiser by Clinique. I really liked using their yellow one (don’t know what it’s called?), but this one has SPF in it. Big plus! And the nail polish? I’m apparently late to the party, because everybody already knows it’s fantastic. It’s the perfect colour and it makes it look like you’ve just had a manicure. I’ve been wearing it for 4 days and it still hasn’t chipped! Thanks Anne for recommending it to me! (it’s Bubble Bath by O.P.I.).

This album by Buckingham Nicks (are you getting sick of my Stevie Nicks talk yet?!). I’m seriously obsessed. It’s probably not everybody’s cup of tea, but if you want you can take a listen to it. In case you’ve missed it: I’ve embedded the youtube file below the above picture. My favourites: Frozen Love, Crystal and Races are run.

Have a great week! ♥

Malmö

Hi everyone! You have to excuse me for the messy layout. I’m trying to come up with a pretty blog design, but so far no luck. Instead I accidentally erased a few blogposts (HOW?!), messed up the fonts and got a big headache from all of the coding stuff. I have zero inspiration in the blogdesign department at the moment! Help. Anyway, because a friend of mine is leaving next week for a working-trip to Malmö, it got me inspired to post the pictures I took while I was there in 2012 (geez, time flies). Have you been there before?

Destination: Frankfurt am Main

Last week we took a trip to Frankfurt. It was sort of a “things I want to do before I die” slash “we have vouchers, so let’s use them” kind of thing. The first one because of the great importance Frankfurt has had in the ~realm of philosophy~ (my boyfriend wrote his thesis about Adorno) and the second because we had some left over hotel tickets we had to use before the end of july. Even though we were both excited to go on this roadtrip and explore Frankfurt, I think we both couldn’t have predicted we would love this city so much. Yes, I use the word LOVE. I’ll show you why.

Visiting Kim in Ghent


Last saturday I woke up in Ghent, where I was visiting one of my best friends.

(Here is a picture of her)

I normally wouldn’t use the word “wonderful”, but I think this calls for an exception. It was a wonderful weekend, filled with dancing, drinking coffees, wandering aimlessly around Ghent, late night Sex and the City re-runs, serious talks and also a lot of laughs.

She told me she was “really happy now”.

Kim, I’m so proud of you.
