Remember I told you about my mother's trip? She went to India and Nepal for 4 weeks. She just came back last saturday with amazing stories and incredible photos. She also brought presents for us (I got a Nepalese cap, a little sculpture of Ganesh and a scarf made of yakwool). I really want to show you her photos because they're so beautiful!First a musicclip of Tibetan/Nepalese temple music. She also bought a CD with this music and in fact, I really like it. Listen to it while looking at the photos :)All photos taken by Elianne Jessen. You can see the whole set (because there are a lot more photos!) here. I hope you like them as much as I do :)
oh this is SO funny haha, I really laughed my ass off while checking damnyouautocorrect.com! It´s hilarious and really recognizable. I once sent a text message to my boyfriend, asking if ´Milošević´ was dropping by.. I meant ´Milo´, one of his friends, not ´Milošević´ of course.. Have you ever had a funny typo (caused by the autocorrection on your phone)? These are my favorites on damnyouautocorrect.com:

I really like birds. I think they're beautiful creatures and they're able to do something I can't: fly. I just find out this amazing blog, Color me Katie. She is very creative and a huge inspiration to me! And now I have found something incredible: she cut out birds of magazines and sticked them on to a wall. I'm definitely gonna do this too!Amazing, isn't it? Click here to check out Katies blog for much more inspirational ideas! All photos in this post belong to Katie.

I really love notebooks. I have a lot of notebooks, from Moleskine notebooks to simple €1 notebooks. I use them as a diary, as sketchbooks, for to do lists (I always forget everything) and just for random things. I also have a notebook used as a 'quote book' and I'd like to show you some of my favorite quotes. I really need to update it so if you could tell me your favorite quote, I might add it in my quote book!One of my all time favorites. This one is from John Green (Looking for Alaska)This is what I'm thinking almost every day.This quote is very important to me. Remember there is always a way out.and for the Dutchies:Gewoon omdat het waar is!For more quotes from my quote book you can click here to go to my quote book set on flickr.
