Exploring Australia with Renée

Exploring Australia with Renée

When Nikki asked me if I could share a travel story with her lovely readers I was 1. very exciting to guest post on her lovely blog 2. being consumed by nostalgia, longing for Australia. Not that I’ve ever lived there for a certain period, but I enjoyed three magnificent weeks over there after my graduating from high school. In less than three weeks I lost my heart to Australia. Not very surprising for a girl who lives in a rainy, industrial and overcrowded country.…

Can you believe how sharp these photos came out at full zoom capacity? Crazy!  I am so happy, happy, happy! The exams are almost over, and I already have more work to do! I have been working as a student in a local outdoor shop for the past 2.5 years. Last week I got a call from my boss to tell me I get to work 4 extra days before I go on vacation in July! This call made me squal with excitement. My first…

My best friend during the exams: Smoothies!

My best friend during the exams: Smoothies!

I don’t know about you guys, but during my exam period I always get really hungy. That would be a good thing if I’d chose healthy snacks, but truth be told, the cookie jar always has a lot more sexappeal than the fruit basket. My solution: smoothies. They’re fun to make, delicious, healthy and energizing. What more do we need!? All you have to do is peel the fruits, chop, add the milk and shake it all away! Our Kitchen Aid machine …

3 years of us

3 years of us

Today marks our three year anniversary! Where’s the day I was this seventeen year old girl standing in front of the theathre biting my nails out of nervousness and trying to look my very best? Haha. I still remember the moment we became a couple like it is only a recent memory. We had had our first date one week earlier and we had just been chatting over the internet. My mom and sister had been on a paralympics trip (my sister has autism) …

Closet Cleaning: Organisation is key (Final)

To ease the pain of my upcoming exams, my parents suprised me with a trip to a local furniture store. Guess what I came home with: a brand new closet! I have three times the space I had before and am now finally able to keep my jackets, coats, scarfs and bags in the same closet as my clothes. I am in heaven. Getting dressed is so much more fun now that I have a clean, working and practical closet! In this last episode of&…

No sound but the wind

Today I’m sharing a little bit of my photography with you. I know, I know, I am by no means a pro at this but I just found these photos to be so magical! Who knew it would be this hard to photograph dandelion sead heads!? We blew about twenty of these and took more than a hundred photos, but only these three turned out good enough. Even on my fastest shutterspeed these little fluffies fly away too fast, haha.  Last Thursday I …

Baking for the boyfriend: Meringues

Baking for the boyfriend: Meringues

Three posts in one week? You never post three posts in one week! That’s right, but I will (try to) from now on! After mastering the “two posts a week”-thing I’ll try my best to make it three. I’m not sure how this will work out for the next two months though. My finals are coming up and at this time my whole life is about books, books, and more books. I recieved my exam schedule last week and let me …
