Back Home.

Wow. I'm home again. Sorry to have kept you waiting. I've been to Paris, Lausanne, Venice, Ljubljana, Vienna, Prague and Munich. And Sunday I'm leaving to go to Milan and Rome. You're probably wondering how I'm keeping up with all that. The truth is, I'm not. But I had so much fun and have so many stories to tell. But for now I'm just going to bed and sleep until I wake up. A new post coming up tomorrow! Fleur is doing well, the internet connection isn't that good in Thailand, but she says it's nice there. Well, I'll talk to you all tomorrow! Good night (:

This Sunday I'm leaving the beautiful Netherlands to visit a totally different part of this big world! Sunday evening my family and I are leaving on a jetplane to play the tourist in Thailand! So I'll be gone for a little more than 3 weeks! Unfortunately Karin will also be gone for another 2 weeks after I've left, so the blog will be on a summerbreak. Sorry for that!

And now, Thailand! We are going to make a selfplanned trip around all parts of Thailand (North - mountains, south - beach/islands, middle - city). We start our journey close to Bangkok. We will stay a few days with in a house with family, so we can get used to the climate and the whole idea of being on the other half of the world :P After that we (btw we is 8 people, my parents, little brother, aunt and uncle, two cousins and me) travel to Chiang Mai, there we'll make a trip in the mountains for a couple of days. Than it's time for Phuket, which is in the south, so there will be beach and islands and a lot of things to do like diving and visiting the James Bond Islands ^^. And last but not least we will visit Bangkok :D

Here are a few photos to give you an idea about Thailand! (Long live WikiMediaCommons)

Liesbeth Visee - God of the moon and stars

Here's a little bit of promotion for one of my friends. Liesbeth Visee. She sings this song on a gospelperformance with the choir. I'm not very religious myself, but this song did touch me a but. She really has an amazing voice.

Song in my head: Simple Plan - Your love is just a lie

I just heard this one on the radio, it's old, but it sticks :)

KarinLouise on DeviantArt

Hee everyone!

Since Karin is in Vienna at the moment, I think it's time for a post about her (deviant)Art!
Karin is very creative, she draws since she was a very, very little girl and since a few years she also found out how to use a photocamera. And she knows it well!
Here are a few of her best shots! ^^.

What do you think about her photographs? ^^.

p.s. sorry about the DA watermarks, I couldn't ask her for the original pictures now. So I had to use the watermarked ones from DA :)

I just got a text from Karin, Veerle and Salina! They are in Venice now, which inspired me to do a little post about that beautiful city! (Even though I've never been there... doesn't mean I don't want to! ^^)


Venice is a city in northern Italy known both for tourism and for industry, and is the capital of the region Veneto, with a population of 271,367. The name is derived from the ancient tribe of Veneti that inhabited the region in Roman times. The city historically was the capital of an independent city-state.
The city stretches across 117 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in northeast Italy. The saltwater lagoon stretches along the shoreline between the mouths of the Po (south) and the Piave (north) Rivers.
The Republic of Venice was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important center of commerce (especially silk, grain and spice trade) and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. This made Venice a wealthy city throughout most of its history. It is also known for its several important artistic movements, especially the Renaissance period. Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music, and it is the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.

[I got this straight from wikipedia.]


Bridge of Sighs

Canal Grande

Lion at San Marco

Watertransport in Venice

Venice has been featured in many many movies and books. For instance in a book (also movie by now) from one of my favourite writers, Cornelia Funke. The Thief Lord. It's about two young brothers, Prosper and Bo, who flee to Venice when people try to seperate them. In Venice they meet Scipio, The Thief Lord. It's a magical story!

What would life be without a little bit (or a little lot) of inspiration. If you google it you find a few definitions:

  • arousal of the mind to special unusual activity or creativity
  • a product of your creative thinking and work; "he had little respect for the inspirations of other artists"; "after years of work his brainchild was a tangible reality"
  • a sudden intuition as part of solving a problem
  • divine guidance: (theology) a special influence of a divinity on the minds of human beings; "they believe that the books of Scripture were written under divine guidance"
  • arousing to a particular emotion or action
But I'm not quite sure that describes it all. So here are the 5 main things that right now inspire me to do the things I like:

ONE love
"love is a many splendid thing, love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love"

Through love you see things differently and you meet new people and new habits. That's why my biggest inspiration is love. Last Saturday my boyfriend and I celebrated that we are together one year and it felt so good, romantic, lovely ;) It inspired me for the photoshoot Karin and I did the next day (you'll hear about that later, she got the pictures and she is in PARIS!) 

TWO laughter & friendship

"A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself"

Laughing is the most healthy thing you can do and my friends are there to make me laugh whenever I have forgotten how it works ^^. 

THREE couture
"Hell On Heels"

One of my many dreams, yes I'm a dreamer, is to go to New York and work for a big fashion magazine. For now I'll have to do with reading the magazines and watching the couture and high fashion shows by pictures on internet. One can dream....
by Alexis Mabille

FOUR candelight
“If it weren't for electricity we'd all be watching television by candlelight.”

I think candlelight is one of the most romantic things. The way the little flame flickers on your walls when the wind catches it. It simply puts a smile on my face ^^.

FIVE Emily Brönte - Wuthering Heights
"It is not in him to be loved like me: how can she love in him what he has not?"

I had to read this book for my English class this year. I didn't. But still the book got a hold on me. I fell in love with it, so after school finished I read it. And when I was done, it gave me a very special feeling. And I loved that.

p.s. These amazing pictures where found on DeviantArt and Fashionscene. Which are two of my favourite sites, you should take a look!

This morning, Karin left for Paris! (And many many other amazing places) She is going on a interrail tour with Veerle and Salina (two of our friends). And that means,,.
I will be bloggin' the next two weeks. Something I (shame on me) haven't done in a while. Since my vacation started (not officially, but it feels like it) I mostly spent my days with my boyfriend, by the pool or watching Charmed (my favourite serie at the moment, and believe it changes fast!)
Anyway, I have a plan to post a little something every day, but you know us a bit by now, and planning is our best feature... (A)

See you tomorrow!

5 Looks: Shorts

I admit, we do not post as often as we should or as often as we would like. What surprised me this last week was that we got more followers (Thank you so much!) while we didn't post anything.  Maybe it should be our new way of managing this little blog. Just kidding. Maybe you noticed the lack of posting Monday's Melody. Tomorrow there will be one! It is definitely time for a new post. I'm sorry to have kept you waiting.
This was never ment to be a fashion blog, but I'm finding myself posting more fashion posts. Hope you don't mind. It is finally time to wear pretty dress, the cutest skirts and the other part of your summer wardrobe. At least here it is. In every 5 Looks I post find looks I really like. In most posts I have a theme. This time 5 totally different but all beautiful-in-their-own-way-shorts.
