Hello there!

How was your weekend? Mine was filled with family, sitting in the car for hours and 'enjoying' the rain! No internet, so unfortunately no blog post.

I learned from my previous mistakes, I'm not going to promise any blogposts untill I'm absolutely sure I can live up to that promise. (I'm moving this week, so exciting! Busy, busy, busy.) But I can promise you I have some exciting new projects going on. Well, mostly just one exciting new project. I'll tell you soon. And for now...

Have a nice week!

5 Looks: Basics

I love basics. Every wardrobe needs them. You can combine basics with basically everything. But they also work well together! Maybe it looks a tiny bit boring, but I think it's perfect for everyday life. 

It's time for a new 5 Looks.

Monday's Melody

I feel almost ashamed to post Monday's Melody. Fleur and I came up with Monday's Melody to make sure we'd post something every week and to replace 'Our favourite song at the moment'. But as it turns out, we can't even commit ourselves to post one regular post regulary. ^^ 
Anyway, the most important thing is:  this week there is a Monday's Melody.

I like so many different types of music. Last week I was slightly obsessed with the Pride and Prejudice soundtrack. Couldn't stop listening. 'A Postcard to Henry Purcell' makes me think about live a few centuries ago.  Don't get me wrong, I love pop and rock music, but a little classical music every now and then is so relaxing.



I'm not really a tattoo person. I never considered taking one, nor which desigin I would like. But a few weeks ago I talked about tattoos with a friend, who was considering taking a tattoo. I was a bit surprised, but when I thought about it, tattoos can be a great way to remember a certain moment or person in your life. I'm not that fond of the 'forever' part, but I get why some people find it very important. We talked about having a word or sentence that means a lot to you tattooed. I immediately thought about that when I saw the picture above. I absolutely love it. I got a bit carried away looking for some other inspiring word-tattoos.

Even one word can mean a lot.

I think this way too long, but I do loved the quote!

Isn't this one amazing?

A wonderful message (although it kind of depends on what you did ^^)
Again, just three words that say everything.
I don't have to say anything about this one. 
And to end this post, a pretty one with birds. So cute. 

The thing I eventually discovered that I do like some tattoos. They can mean a lot and have amazing stories behind them. I would love the stories behind those pictures. I'm not planning to get a tattoo anytime in the near future, but I just wanted to share these little artworks.

Have a lovely week!

All of you probably have already heard about this, at least I did, but I never joined. I always wanted to, but just never did. Postcrossing is a website you can join to send and receive postcards to and from random people in the world. I always love finding a postcard in my mail and I suppose a lot of you love it too. 
I started with sending a postcard to Germany, Finland and China and I'm now waiting to get some postcards from other people. I have to have a little patience, but I'm so excited!

A little bit about Postcrossing: 
"The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world."

And I always love to look at the statistics. At this moment Postcrossing has 203,868 members in 210 countries. Most of the users are female. 5% of the users is Dutch. 4,951,369 cards were received with Postcrossing. These cards  traveled 27,188,444,004 km (678,439 laps around the earth, 35,364 return trips to the moon).

Ofcourse I'll let you know when I receive some postcards!


Remember that time when I promised you a post tomorrow? Yeah, that was almost two weeks ago.. I'm a little bit ashamed, because Fleur took good care of our blog when I was gone and  when she was gone I didn't post anything. Okay, I was in Rome last week (that's quite a good excuse, isn't it?). So now I'm trying to make everything right. I'm planning on posting a lot more this week. Look out for some new posts!
