Busy, busy, busy. The weather is wonderful. A lot of lovely parties. And loads to do. But when I stopped a minute doing all the things I have to, I saw this amazing animation by Danny Roberts. We love his work. A little something to watch while you wait for us to post new things. ;)
We are so sorry for not posting such a long time, but we've both been busy with school and summer and many more things.. We'll start again very soon. At least Karin will, I have my last few tests! Next week I'm done with school for this year! But untill then I will have to study, study, study...
I was surprised to see that my last H&M Wishlist dates back to January. I thought it would be fun to do a new one. H&M is probably one of my favourite stores. Summer is finally here, so time for a summer wishlist.
Isn't this one pretty? I love how simple it is. And it's perfect for an important party.
I actually own this one. I love a pretty blue blouse in the summer.
Floral print dresses are, in my opinion, a must-have. Not that I own one. Yet.
I love this jacket and couldn't let it just hanging there in the store. Isn't it pretty?
I love basics. And blue.
I'm really into green lately. And I think that this skirt is really beautiful.
What are your favourite H&M items? And where do you love to shop?
Ps. As far as 50 Books to read before you die is concerned, I read 1984, Pride & Prejudice and Wuthering Heigts these last couple of days. And I will post about them this week! (:
Oh, and I am finally done with school. I passed my exams and I'm very very happy with the results.
Thank you Fleur for all your support!
It is time for the second version of this new regular post. For quite some time now, probably since we've started, you could find our favourite song at that time on our blog. Maybe you knew that. Maybe you didn't. But we think it's time to change that. Every week on every monday we will post Monday's Melody in which both me and Fleur will post our favourite song of that week. This can be a new song, a dutch song or an old song we rediscovered. We hope you'll enjoy it.
Stare into the Sun - Graffiti 6
The last few days I got really used to do whatever I want and just to have some fun. Summer's really here. Almost. While listening to the radio I heard this song. It's such a perfect summer song, it really made me happy. And I hope it will do exactly the same for you! - Karin.
Muse - Neutron Star Collision
The first time I heard this song I didn't like it at all, the earlier songs by muse were much better I thought! But after a while it grows on you and you can't get it out of your head! This song is also featured in the next Twilight movie, Eclipse :)
I hope you like it!! - Fleur.
In a few weeks a friend and I are going to Rome! We're so excited to see this famous old city. To prepare ourselves and mostly to have some fun, we had a little movie night yesterday. We watched two movies that were filmed in Rome.
First.. Roman Holiday.
Roman Holiday is a 1953 movie still completely in black and white with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. 118 minutes of old music, an amazing sense of style and the lovely manners that unfortunately seem to have disappeared these days. It's about a princess that escapes from the ambassade in Rome and meets a journalist. Together they have their own little holiday in Rome. It was really fun to watch this and I wanted to give you a little impression. If you like this kind of things, you should definitely watch this one!
And second... When In Rome.
After Roman Holiday we wanted to see some colour. The world isn't black and white anymore. Nor is Rome. When in Rome is a 2010 romantic comedy with Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel. When Beth goes to her sister's wedding in Rome, she ends up drunk in the 'fountain of love'. She picks up four coins that people threw in the fountain, which turns out to be not as innocent as she thought. Four men are now desperately in love with her and follow her everywhere. And of course, she finds her own love in the end. It's such an amazing movie! We laught till we had tears in our eyes! And that is a good thing.
Anyway, Both movies are really worth watching.
Do you have any movie suggestions? I would love it if you'd suggest a few have-to-watch-movies in the comment section!
(This post should have been posted last monday, so let's just pretend it's monday)

The Cactus that Found the Beat - Missy Higgins
I found this song again last week. It's rather old, but not too famous. This live version is just so perfect. I love Missy Higgins' songs. This song doesn't need an explaination. It just needs to be heard. Enjoy! - Karin.
Love never dies - The Beauty Underneath
Tonight in our lovely little country, we have the anual musical awards gala! For the dutch musical industry this is a big happening! That's why I wanted to share a musical song with you this week ^^. This song is from the sequel of the all famous Phantom of the Opera. Love Never Dies. I really like it, but I think you have to know the story to really understand the meaning of it. Give it a try, you might as well enjoy it ^^. - Fleur!
Who doesn't love cupcakes? I can't imagine someone that doesn't. Whether you like something sweet or something salt... You can always find something you like. I know liking cupcakes is a bit obvious for a girl like me, but who cares? Anyway, I found Ming Makes Cupcakes over at Wish Wish Wish.
Wish Wish Wish is the blog of the 19 year old Carrie and I've followed this lovely blog for a while now. She mentioned Ming Makes Cupcakes in a recent post and I thought you'd like to hear about it. On the website you can find free cupcake recipes, perfect for a summer day.
I think both blogs are definitely worth looking at! Enjoy!
As some of you already know, I decided that it was time to read all the books on the bookmark I got from my parents. 50 Books to read before you die. I think a book lover like me should definitely read those books. So I challenged myself to read the 50 books this year. To show you I mean it, I read the whole Lord of the Rings this week. Which wasn't that much of a challenge, because the books are amazing. But if I want to finish the list I should read more than one book every week. Anyway, I promised to tell you something about every book I read.
(This is the version I read, quite an old one, in Dutch.)
I love the Lord of the Rings movie ever since my mother said I should watch them when I was ill and bored to death. Eventhough everbody always told me that books were so much better, I was pretty content with the long hours sitting and watching Middle-earth on screen. But now that has changed. I discovered, not to my surprise though, that the books are wonderful. They changed a lot of things in the films. Which I think is a good thing, otherwise no one could follow it. But the books leave more to your imagination and you really find yourself in Middle-earth feeling sorry for Frodo and hoping he'll make it. Which -of course- he does. And I love the elves, the relationship between Éowyn and Faramir and how those Ents take down Isengard. But I won't give too much lovely details away, you should read the books yourself. Really, when you finally commit yourself and decide you're going to read them you'll enjoy it.
So. This is it. The beginning of the list. The next one is 1984 by George Orwell. I think everyone had heard about this book -and every other book on the list- and I hope it is as fascinating as people say it is.
The weather is finally like it should be and I just finished reading The Fellowship of the Ring as the beginning of 50 books to read before you die. I'm totally in a summer mood, so I spend the whole day eating cupcakes, reading in the sun and at a friend's house. Because of my rare happy, summer mood I decided to post a 5 looks with 5 summer looks. Enjoy.
