You’re From The Seventies, But I’m A Nineties Chick

You’re From The Seventies, But I’m A Nineties Chick

Being a kid from the early nineties, most of the current summer trends get the label “been there, done that”. I might not be ready to give some things another go, but there are some revivals that I have grown to appreciate. Bardot necklines are one of those. They are definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I fell in l-o-v-e when I saw this top in a haul video on YouTube (guilty pleasure!). When it went on sale a couple of weeks ago I clicked one right home to me! It took me a while …

High Tea at HoneyPie in Middelburg

High Tea at HoneyPie in Middelburg

This weekend my mom took my sister and me out for a high tea at their favorite place in Middelburg: HoneyPie. I had passed by the tea house before and had seen people having lunch out on their floating (!) terrace, but never took the time to test their menu myself. Having been to the UK quite a couple times, I have always looked at people having high tea with a bit of jealousy. It’s a pricey meal to have and as travelling youngsters it has never been in our budget to book a high tea for ourselves. We …

We spill out Ludacrises lines at least once a week and if we’re playing the latest GTA we’ll have Non-Stop POP FM on until it comes by. We love it. And so when I was gifted these Flossy shoes at the latest Press Days I couldn’…

Tea o’clock!

Tea o’clock!

After spending hours and hours comparing washing machines, dryers, irons and vacuum cleaners from various retailers we finally went and bought most things this weekend. We both are not the types that get excited about shopping electronic household appliances, and I must say that those massive electronics stores definitely don’t give me the same rush of excitement the average Zara does. We’re happy that this part of our preparation is done! K actually texted me afterwards saying the money we spent on the vacuum cleaner was the ‘most poorly’ spend money ever (he than …

Somewhere in an American valley… Happy 6 year anniversary to my partner, my rock, my home, my love. If you told me 8 years ago that I’d be dating the kid who tried his best to make me go face down on the ice rink, I’d never ever everrrrrr would have believed you. I avoided him for years before everything changed. Like a kind of magic. Life never goes the way you expect it to, now does it? Today we’re one month away from receiving the keys to our first apartment and I must admit …
