The past ten days (bits and piecies)

Photosession with Tara, yay! She is definitely my favorite person to shoot with. We shot pictures inside her house and some by the sea. This is one of my favorites. ✝ Our street has been covered with pink blossom and this tree is the one who’s responsible for it. ✝ It’s moving time again! I decided I wanted to get rid of some clothing so I cleaned out my closet. If I’m not going to wear it, I’d rather have someone else enjoying them. ✝ I also found these babies! Totally forgot I had them.
Another picture from when I was shooting with Tara. I borrowed a camera from a friend so we could shoot some clips of her playing her music which she then could send to her family in Ireland. Scroll down if you want to hear one of her songs. ✝ I paid a visit to the optician and got some new glasses. I’ll have to wait two weeks for them to arrive, bugger… I’ll show you when I’ve got them :)

(Tara is a bit shy, so she’s probably going to kill me when she sees her face plastered all over this page)

(I don’t care)

She said she felt brave today, so I was granted the permission (he he) to make the youtube clips public. Here you go, here is one of her songs:

PLEASE IGNORE MY POOR VIDEO (EDITING) SKILLS. I decided to try and zoom in at the end, BAD IDEA, lol.

I had a really hard time choosing which one I would show. Eventually I chose this one because I love how it feels like a very honest and cute song. It’s not really my story to tell, but listen to it and you’ll know what it’s about. Go check it out at my youtube channel (eventually she will have them up on her own channel, this was just for easy sharing purposes).

Speaking of (being) green: I really love how everything is turning green outside. It all happened over the course of one weekend. Suddenly it looked like summer! Too bad it’s been raining ever since.

- other stuff –

Anne took me to see The Great Gatsby as a birthday present this week and whoaahhh… it was amazing. I really loved it! I was a bit worried when I saw the trailer that it would simply be too much for me (director Baz Luhrmann has a really distinctive way of filmmaking), but I was pleasantly surprised! ♥ My two favorite songs from the soundtrack of The Great Gatsby: Lana del Rey with Young and Beautiful & Florence + The Machine with Over the Love ♥ A friend of mine showed me reddit.com and now I’m seriously hooked (also, please don’t call me Shirley). I have an app on my phone and I keep checking it every few minutes. A few gems: IamA, were you can ask questions to people who have something to tell (like a refugee from north Korea or a police officer or someone who has a few days left to live), the“funny” tag or the one about politics. ♥ I drove FOUR hours this week and I’m finally getting the hang of it (sort of). Atleast I haven’t killed anyone yet. ♥ My work-out clothes have not seen daylight this week. Yes, I’m a lazy bum. And I reallly don’t care. ♥ We don’t know what we should do with our vacation! Warsaw and Krakow or being lazy on a beach somewhere? (whitegirlproblems) ♥ “When I look at you a Coldplay song plays in my heart”, haha! I love GIRLS! (the series. Sorry ladies.) ♥ One of my best friends is getting married and she asked me to be her “best man”! Wow, such an honor! I’m very happy for them :) ♥ The final episode of The Office aired last week… what can I say? It was just the way I wanted it to be, or maybe even better. I’m not going to spoil it for you, no worries! Just want to say it was great. ♥

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a house to pack….. Pfffff. Have a nice weekend everybody xx

    Ik heb trouwens geprobeerd om op je blog te reageren (Jordanië artikel), maar ik krijg het met geen mogelijkheid voor elkaar! Moet steeds inloggen bij wordpress en dat werkt bij mij blijkbaar niet.
