I love my pink hair and I love it even more when it’s braided! Unfortunately I’m not able to make all these braids by myself (for instance the ‘crown braid’ you see below, my mum made it) and normally I don’t have enough time in the morning to braid my hair. But I want to braid my hair more often and now that I have vacation I should be able to do that! Here are my most favorite braids which I’m going to use for inspiration!
Ho ho ho!
Since the holiday season is upon us we decided to dress all fancy for this post! We divided the post into two sides: the good girl side and the bad girl side. Not that difficult to figure out which is which eh? We used this photo to enter a competition @Chictopia, please oh please vote for us HERE! We also wanted to make a Christmas song! Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to make our own version so we had to download a karaoke version and sing to it. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the only version we could find was this awful one, which forced us to either sing too high or too low. We thought it sounded so bad, we kept laughing while recording it. After a while we made the camera blurry, so we wouldn’t really see ourselves being stupid anymore, which actually helped. So… Well.. Basically it sucks! But still we posted it, because it’s funny and we just had to post a Christmas song. Maybe after the exams, in february, we’ll post a better version. Or maybe next year? =) Scroll all the way down to check it out! It’s really cozy here in Leuven by the way! Every street is decorated with little lights.. Jade and her boyfriend went out to get some beignets (which in English is a fritter, no?) and they were delicious! There is also a beautiful carrousel near the Town Hall which you can see below!
Happy holidays everyone!!
Kisses, Tall & tiny

A hobbit’s tale by Tall and tiny!
Since yesterday (12/12/12) was the day Peter Jackson’s new film ‘The Hobbit’ premiered, we just had to do a hobbit themed post! Alas, we didn’t have a lot of suitable clothes here in Leuven so we couldn’t perfect the look, maybe we’ll do that some other time when we can get more clothes from our homes in Antwerp and the Netherlands. Anyway, we tried our best! Jade is supposed to be some kind of modern-day hobbit. She’s even barefoot (which is so cold)! Elvi is dressed as a modern-day elf. Obviously these roles suit us just fine: a tiny hobbit and a tall elf!
We advise you all to go watch the movie! It’s not like lord of the rings because it’s funnier, calmer and slower, but then again, so is the book. It’s a really fun movie and the graphics (especially in 3D cinema) are amazing! It’s like you’re actually there! Watch the trailer below!
And of course, you should read the book too! You can buy it HERE at the bookdepository. It’s a great website really, their books are very cheap and you don’t have to pay shipping costs! They have lots of versions, but we think this cover is the prettiest. = )
We hope you enjoy the book and the movie, and of course: our picture! ; )

Here’s another themed post and we hope you like it! How did we get this idea? Well off course we’re studying Chinese at the university of Leuven, so we’re real students ourselves. But because of Jade’s new glasses (they were the old glasses of her friend Nele) we came up with this idea of the schoolgirl / strict teacher’s look. What do you think, does tiny look more intelligent wearing glasses? We think she does (haha)!
This day we also started shooting our first music video! We won’t say which song we’re using, but we’ll give a small sneak preview of what we looked like =) We’ll keep you updated!
Lots of love,
Tall & tiny
Ps: do you have any good ideas for one of our new themed posts? Please let us know and leave a comment or send us an email!
You may remember that we had this great idea, making a themed post every wednesday. Well, last wednesday’s theme was: JEANS!! Unfortunately because of all the school work we didn’t have time to upload it immediately, so here it is!
What do you think? It’s jeans all over, but that’s the great thing about jeans, you can combine it with practically everything! (which doesn’t mean we wear a lot of jeans ourselves, as you may have noticed in our previous outfitpost..)
We also had a tall & tiny rehearsal last wednesday and we started writing a new song. It’s going to be the soundtrack of our friends’ Chinese remake of ‘The devil wears Prada’. You can see us practising (and having fun) in the pics below!

In a galaxy far far away…
It was nerd themed day! Hey that rhymes! Our first theme is ‘nerd’ and we’re both sporting the nerd look in our own way. Jade is wearing a power rangers t-shirt, and an R2D2 (Star Wars) skirt. To perfect the look, she’s wearing a cute heart printed headband and strawberry printed ballerinas. Also, she’s holding a Tank Girl comic book (which she adores). Elvi is wearing a really nerdy pink shirt and a typical schoolgirl skirt. To finish off the look she added some pink kitten earrings and our adorable Tall and tiny music notebook. We love this look! As a girl, it’s really fun to combine the nerd look with cuteness! And we think we pulled that off pretty nicely, don’t you?
