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 have played the piano for 9 years. I quitted when my teacher moved to England. Since then I rarely played piano anymore. But I still love piano music, I wish I had more time to play again. I just discovered this amazing piano artist called 'Dustin O'Halloran'. His music is really emotional and I really like it. I know it's not Lady Gaga or Rihanna but please give it a try, you will like it.Opus 23Opus 18Opus 36 (I really like this video!)
My mom is traveling through India right now, she'll come back within 3 weeks and I thought it would be nice to give her a little present when she comes back. I know usually someone who travels brings back souvenirs but I just found a perfect gift for my mother: a box full of luck. Photos are taken with my mobile phone so the quality is a bit sucky..(the note says: "the biggest step towards happiness is to stop worrying")So basically it's just a box full of notes. Like a big fortune cookie. I hope she likes it. I bought it at a Fair Trade shop, but you'll probably find it at more stores.
S Club 7 Bring it all backOh god nostalgia!! Haha I love this song! I still know the lyrics by heart, even though I haven't listen to this for ages! Although I like techno or singer-songwriter music, this is awesome and sometimes I just miss the 'old music' from the '90 and '00. What is your favorite 'oldie'?

Some of my favorites:Travel light (featuring Johnny Flynn)New RomanticYou're no God

I read this book during my summer holidays. And I have to admit: it is one of my favorite books ever! It's a really weird book (I can't really explain it, you have to see it for yourself) but why I actually started to read it was because of the beautiful quotes it has. Lots of beautiful quotes. Let me show you some of my favorites:She was extending a hand that I didn’t know how to take, so I broke its fingers with my silence.She wants to know if I love her, that’s all anyone wants from anyone else, not love itself but the knowledge that love is there, like new batteries in the flashlight in the emergency kit in the hall closet.I felt that night, on the stage, incredibly close to everything in the universe, but also extremely alone. I wondered, for the first time in my life, if life was worth all the work it took to live. What exactly made it worth it? What’s so horrible about being dead forever, and not feeling anything, and not even dreaming? What’s so great about feeling and dreaming?It’s the tragedy of loving, you can’t love anything more than something you missI felt suddenly shy. I was not used to shy. I was used to shame. Shyness is when you turn your head away from something you want. Shame is when you turn your head away from something you do not want. Sometimes I can hear my bones strainging under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.Pretty amazing? I know! It's written by Jonathan Safran Foer, and he has written more awesome books! Make sure you read this book, it's so amazing. You can read the book here but I'm not sure it cantains every page (I think those are only…
