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'?
(source)You probably already know her. She is a 20 year old indie/folk singer-songwriter from London. Her second album came out this year and I really love it! She has also worked with Mumford & Sons (I discoverd Mumford&Sons last year by listening to Laura) and Johnny Flynn. Some of my favorites:Travel light (featuring Johnny Flynn)New RomanticYou're no God
I don't think I have to tell you what 'Tumblr' is, but what you might not know is that I'm a huge tumblr fan! I have two tumblrs, one random tumblr where I collect all the quotes, songs, photography and texts I really like, found on the internet. And one about New York because I love that city. I started my tumblr more than 1,5 years ago and I'm hooked. Of course it's a pity that some users don't credit people when they put their photos on their tumblr and there are a lot of tumblr with the usual weheartit crap but I really think tumblr is awesome!My tumblrs are Quiver and Newyorq, please take a look at them! My favorite tumblrs at the moment are:http://orientaltiger.tumblr.comhttp://mysteriousdancing.tumblr.comhttp://crookedteethh.tumblr.comhttp://crack-attack.tumblr.comhttp://papertissue.tumblr.comhttp://fashionfever.tumblr.comhttp://beautifullysuicidal.tumblr.comhttp://-avant.tumblr.comhttp://soggiorno.tumblr.comhttp://hicourtney.tumblr.comhttp://binds.tumblr.comhttp://thegreatbookoffairytales.tumblr.comhttp://inspirasjontakk.tumblr.comDo you have a tumblr?
(source: Nirrimi)(source: Szabo)There haven't been many updates lately because I'm very busy at the moment. But I'll try to update more from now on. I have been outside all day today and it's so wonderful to see the colors of the trees changing. I think I'll take my camera with me tomorrow to shoot some lovely autumn pictures.
(source)It's getting colder here, leafs are falling down and the frosty nights are back! I tuck myself in with lots of scarfs (which I love, I love wearing scarfs), I drink a lot of hot chocolate and listen to Amos Lee (love). I can't wait to see the world changing in a landscape like the photo, but I hope it's gonna be a soft winter. Last years winter was TOO cold with TOO MUCH snow. So please winter, be kind.
I have found this survey on the internet and because I'm really bored at the moment I thought let's just give it a try. Feel free to copy and paste it to your blog if you're just as bored as I am.These questions have no right or wrong answers.Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?I have no idea. I'm 18, sometimes I feel really responsible and wise, but sometimes I just like to be daddy's lil' gurlllll haha. So it depends on my mood.Which is worse, failing or never trying?Of course never trying! But I hate to fail, I get nervous really quick lately so sometimes I just don't try, so I won't fail.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?That's exactly what I think. Let's just skip school and travel around the world.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?Probably. I talk a lot.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?Child prostitution. It's horrible.If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?Traveling (oh and shopping).Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?Both.If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?Yes of course. I would travel the world after university for 5 years, then have kids and do everything I like, never worry about a thing.To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?I don't really control my life so..Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?About doing things right (you know,…
(photos are taken with my mobile phone, so don't mind the bad quality..)It is not finished yet, but I'm already really happy with my wall full of (old) photos, concert tickets, things I brought from my travels and just random things I like.
A vintage camera strap. I know these are for sale on ebay but I don't want to buy it on ebay. And I have really no idea where I can find these things (in the Netherlands). So if you do know, please let me know!The Script cds. I still buy cds, I love it. I really like The Script, I do have some of their songs on my mp3 player but I really want the cds!I need a new bag. I want a black one, I really like this Miu Miu one, except for the golden details.. oh and the price.I LOVE photography, but now I'm only shooting with analogue cameras (I really like analogue photography but I just need a DSLR). I want a DSLR camera but it has to be very compact (and not too expensive). I have thought about the Panasonic Lumix fz38 for a while. It's not a DSLR but a super-zoom camera, but it has a Leica lens and I like the quality of the photos it takes.. Well I'm still doubting this, so maybe you could help me? Which camera would you recommend me?
