We have some pictures which we have been wanting to share with you for quite a while now, but we just haven’t had the time to do so. So here is an extra long post, filled with pictures from the last couple of weeks!
The first series of pictures was taken this week. Check out Elvi’s amazing updo. All those colors… Woooow….
We went out together this tuesday, and on our way home we passed this sign. It says “Het fietsexamen” which stands for a test you can take, to prove you can ride a bicycle. No, you don’t need a driver’s license to be allowed to ride a bike here in Belgium, but if you doubt your bicycle skills, you can take this exam. And now comes the big shocker of the day: Jade is 21 years old and she doesn’t -repeat: doesn’t- know how to ride a bike. She just never learned it, and also she has no insight in traffic. It’s like walking with a monkey or a very small child, even as a pedestrian she hasn’t got a clue where she’s going. We’re all wondering how that’s gonna turn out when she starts driving a car…
This picture was taken yesterday. It’s blurry because it was taken very quickly, as it was raining like hell. Some people are setting up a fake circus right outside our school, with statues of elephants, tigers and bears, but we have no idea why. Well, whatever they’re doing, it looked cool and we had to take a picture with the elephant!
These pictures were taken more than a month ago, when the weather was actually nicer than it is now… Check out how the girl on Elvi’s shirt has the same hair as her, and check out Jade’s little clock!
Ah, the next part of our post is rather interesting– and disgusting!! Lai-Yan had gotten some free samples from Lush. Now, don’t get us wrong, we love lush. Their products are without a doubt a-ma-zing as well as super animal friendly! However this product was… not their best… And that was a euphemism. It were three little tablets, which smelled awful, and we were supposed to put them in our mouths and then they would start foaming or something and it would be like a natural toothpaste. Didn’t happen. No foam, no toothpaste. Just a wet tablet that tasted like poo inside your mouth. It was disgusting, and we actually felt quite sick after using it… BLEH! Check out Jade’s face after using it, priceless.
And last but not least, how ridiculously well do these roller skates match out outfits AND cupcakes? We would look so totally awesome…
Enjoy the weekend!
After all the sweating, crying, saying WHY GOD WHY and having our hands in our hair or our faces in our hands until finally, at last, on a beautiful day… IT’S OVER!!! The exams are finished, finito, finale, done! That (unfortunately) doesn’t mean all is good though, because I (Jade) have to work fulltime (all of juli!) and Elvi (you know, that tall person I often stand next to) has some exams to do this summer. But, on the bright side of things, the studying is over for now, and the weather was lovely, as you can see in our pictures! =)
We were coincidentally both wearing pastel, and (you’ll never believe it, yet, it is true) our friend Laura made us some motivational cupcakes and the color of the cupcakes exactly matched our outfits! Even our friend Lai Yan had a purple one matching her dress! Thank you Laura, they were delicious (and gorgeous)!!
Also, (don’t mean to be arrogant but I have to mention it :p) I got a new dress from my grandma. It’s from topshop and I adore it (check out the heart-shaped back)!! I got so many compliments while wearing it, even from a total stranger on the street who asked me where I bought it. ^^ So that really made my day, thanks nana!
Enjoy the sun everyone,
and if it’s not very sunny where you are right now,
we’re from Belgium so all I can say is, we understand :p Keep your hopes up!
Tall and tiny’s tiny,
and oh, tall says hello too
(Gee this post sure is quirky, maybe the exams have brainwashed me or something…)
And don’t you just love this retro photo look? =)
