Golden Elephants

Hi Guys !

It's getting late, but I got inspired, so I thought - why not write about it ? Don't ask me why, but this month I am in love with golden elephants. I am hunting for a T-shirt with an elephant made out of golden sequins. That is my goal, haha ! Haven't found one yet, but the summer has only begun.

However, there is much more than only clothes with elephant prints. So here it comes - watch and fall in love.

So let's kick off with jewellery

Keep it discreet

Or go all the way out

Wear it around your wrist

Or maybe around your ankle ?

Fingers and ears are also an option.

And then there's option B
Decorate your whole house and put golden elephants EVERYWHERE !

Aren't they lovely ? 
But if that's still not enough, why don't you simply print it on your body ?

I hope you love them as much as I do !

Kids in the Dark

Hi Guys !

While cleaning my room and I found a notebook with a letter I wrote to a friend I broke up with. You never know if you're taking the right decision, but sometimes it doesn't work out anymore. What means that you have to let go.

While scrolling through many quotes I found two that say two completely opposite things, but I agree with both of them. One of them says : "Start ignoring people who threaten your joy. Literally, ignore them. Say nothing. Don't invite any parts of them into your space." The other one says : "If you leave someone at least tell them why, because what's more painful than being abandoned; is knowing you're not worth an explanation."

If you're not sure what to do, here are some points that might help you think.

You know it's time to say goodbye,

... when your friend is jealous of your success.

... when they tell your secrets to others.

... when they don't give you advice how to realise your dreams, but claim you can't do it.

... when they drop you like a hot potato, because they have found a boyfriend. Afterwards they apologise and do it all over again.

... when they make rude remarks about you.

... when they don't update you about important life changes.

... when they think you're going to steal their boyfriend.

... when they exchange you for new friends.

... when they are competitive.

... when they lie to you.

... when you're friends since a very long time so they take you for granted. 

... when you have been for them through their difficult days, but once they're smoking hot, they don't need you anymore.

... when they talk with others in a way so you can't follow the conversation.

... when they get you in trouble, so they can achieve their goal.

... when they borrow money from you but don't feel like giving it back.

... when they're negative and you have to compliment them a lot, but it still doesn't reassure them. 

... when they consider whatever you say as criticism.

... when they are over-possessive, what basically means that you can't talk to anyone else than them.

... when they call you when they need you, but when you need them, they're too busy.

... when they tell you secrets other people told them. It basically means they tell yours to others too.

... when they steal your boyfriend or crush or ex-boyfriend. 

... when they control everything you did or will do.

... when they treat you in a bad way.

It's not like you should break up when something doesn't work out. If something is bothering you, you should absolutely talk it out. However, sometimes it doesn't work out, you're starting too feel like a bird in a too small cage and "you need to breathe".

Midnight Memories

Hello Guys!

I'm finally back from the long battle called University. This has been a dream I wanted to realise since a very long time. When they predicted the end of the world in 2012, I was sad because I wouldn't have the opportunity of going to Uni, haha! This is not even a joke.

University was all they had told me it would be. You have the time of your life, but it's also a lot of work. Is it more difficult than High School? Well, it probably is, but I look at it from a different angle. In High School you have to get good grades in subjects that you don't really like or that you don't consider as interesting. At Uni there are also classes that aren't super interesting, but as it leads to your goal, you have more motivation to push. So the most important thing is to choose something that will make you happy in the future.

As I didn't have much time to blog, these are the Highlights of the Year!

September: University Time!

September 22nd - I was finally an official student at my Dream University ! The first week was loaded with emotions, I bought so many books and I thought that I was chasing rainbows, but guess what! I made it :)

Day 1 - All the New Students

October: My Birthday + Paris

In October was my Birthday and for this occasion, Mom and I went to Paris. This time we didn't spend the whole day in the heart of Paris, we spent the day walking around and visiting other places that aren't as popular as the Eiffel Tower, but still very beautiful!

If there's one thing I love about churches, it's probably the ceiling.
It is always so beautiful! This is in the Sacré-Cœur.
If you're planning a trip to Paris,
 I encourage you to write it down on your list of things to see ! 
You won't regret it! Below you see the outside (No, I didn't take that picture).

November: Ed Sheeran

Every year I want to go to at least one concert, but last year it didn't turn out well. I bought tickets to see James Arthur, but he was ill so the concert has been put on another date and then I couldn't go. Last summer, I looked up who's coming to Belgium quite soon and the most interesting artist was Ed Sheeran. I loved his first album, but I wasn't tracking his every breath and plan. So I bought tickets, because I was simply in the mood to go to a concert. However, I'm really happy for this sudden decision, because he is such a talented person. On stage, all you see is a ginger man with his guitar - that's all. And that is the most fascinating thing, because the crowd was enjoying every second of it.

December: Christmas

Christmas was different this year, because in Belgium in High School exams are before Christmas, but at Uni exams are in January. So unfortunately, I couldn't help Mom with preparing the dishes, what I absolutely love doing. I was stu-dying :( But then I decided not to do anything for 2 days, because Christmas and family are also very important. Here are some pictures of Brussels during this magical period called Christmas.

Place Sainte Catherine

Me at la Grand Place 
Btw. I do not know this guy haha #photobomb

La Bourse

January: Exams.

This was a tough month, I had exams and I was super nervous, because I didn't know what to expect and I didn't want to fail after sparing no effort. But I passed all my exams and I'm really happy :)

February: Baking Time + Snow

In February we finally had some time off. Normally it is only a week, but as my exams ended quite early I had two weeks off. Yaaay! I used this time to do things that make me happy, what is among other things baking. Mother Nature also decided to give us one day of snow!

March: Meeting the President of Poland

What can I say more than the fact that I had the opportunity to meet the then President of Poland. It was for his presidential election campaign, so of course he was super friendly. I was a little nervous, even though I had met him before, but still - he was the head of my country.

April: Easter

When I think about Easter, I see a beautiful spring day. Sun, butterflies and shiny people. Unfortunately it was super cold this year. It was raining and windy. So we went to church and then we stayed at home all day long, because we didn't want to become ill, like we were after Christmas. I had two weeks off, but I basically spent them learning for my exams in June, otherwise I wouldn't have enough time.

May: London + 5 Seconds of Summer

What can I say, most of you have probably been in London, so there's not much I can tell you. I loved it too :) We tried to do the most possible in one day. We took the London taxi. I ate a British breakfast and it wasn't bad. I was actually really good! My Mom never thought I would eat the whole dish as I don't eat a lot in the morning. But I did! The weather was good, it didn't rain, we had fun and that's the most important thing!

I also went to see 5 Seconds of Summer live and it was a lot of fun ! I had front row tickets, so I was standing in front of Michael and that made me feel a little uncomfortable haha But I had a lot of fun ! They sing well live, they have fun on stage and we had fun listening to their music. What to want more?

June: One Direction + Exams

We're still June, but I'm not planning anything special this month anymore, so here come the highlights! June was tough for sure. June is the month of exams. Waking up at 8 am, studying until 10 pm and repeat this 3 weeks long. Yes, that was very painful! But the good news was that in the middle of this examination period I went to see One Direction! That was such a good decision. I mean - if you studied hard, you shouldn't regret going out one night. So that's what I did :)

What can I say? Harry has the funniest dance moves. Liam is very talkative and super friendly. Niall didn't talk much, but he posted many thankful tweets and pictures on Instagram, so I suppose he enjoyed it and Louis was super happy because they've sung "No Control" for the first time. They also sang 18 - one of my favourite songs of the album ♥︎ 

Taking pictures was such a challenge! There are so many moving hands, other fans taking pictures - it was really difficult. 

I promise to write more often this summer!
