Our exams are over, yay! On top of that the weather is amazing here, it’s 34° in the shadow and the sun is out, lovely! So we went out with our two dear friends Lai-Yan and Laura, to get some ice cream at llaollao! Jade’s youngest dog Wookiee also tagged along, but -as you can see in the pictures- isn’t as big a fan of the heat as we are.
Also, check out a picture of Jade’s long hair below, because she’s going to have it cut! Bye bye long hair!
Tonight Elvi returns to the Netherlands and Jade is going for a swim with her sister. Life is good. Jade bought a vintage-style swimsuit a while ago but so far hasn’t had the chance to try it out yet, which tonight she finally can!
Yay! Again! Because… Yay!
Since we’re rehearsing our songs here @Antwerp this weekend, Jade wanted to show Elvi her neighborhood. She lives pretty close to three gorgeous parks, one of them which is a museum full of statues! We took some ridiculous pictures at a statue by Auguste Rodin, acting just like Chinese tourists. ^^ We also crossed ‘the bridge without a name’ which is a wibbly wobbly bridge, made by Ai Weiwei (the dogs had a good time walking, but found the bridge rather hard to cross ^^). We also spotted some very cute little geese and visited the lovely deer. And of course, ice cream! Yummm…. When we were making pizza’s, Jade broke a knife. SHE BROKE A KNIFE! Now she thinks she’s the reïncarnation of Hercules. Ah well..
Just another day at school yesterday. One of our classes was cancelled and that gave us some time off which made us so happy! Elvi had her friend Lara from the Netherlands coming over and they had a great time together! Check out a picture of them dancing together below!
Also, about our outfits, when Elvi arrived at school Jade instantly said she reminded her of Cruella de Vil of Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel and Disney’s 1961 animated film adaptation: ‘The Hundred and One Dalmatians’. In the movie she looks awful though, which obviously Elvi doens’t. Elvi looked like what Cruella would have looked like if she was a nice woman. Two weeks ago Jade and her boyfriend watched the Disney movie while they each had one of their dogs on their lap. One of them was sleeping like a princess and the other one (the puppy) was actually looking at the television and responding to the dogs’ barking. When the dogs barked her eyes became so big! You can see it in a picture below, it’s adorable!
Disney movies are timeless aren’t they? As are our outfits sometimes, I mean come on we could have totally rocked these looks a couple of decades ago! Don’t you agree? Scroll all the way down to see us in an ‘old looking’ picture!
Hello everyone! Yesterday we totally behaved like giggly college girls. We had to go to an exam, and Jade’s puppy can’t be home alone yet, so Laura came over to babysit. She took a picture of us right before we left to the exam, but as you can see, the puppy kept trying to get out of Jade’s arms because she wanted to go for a walk and we couldn’t help but giggle all the time! The result: giggly pictures. ^^ Don’t forget to scroll down and see Elvi’s matching earrings and necklace, and a close up of Jade’s good luck flower tattoo (don’t squint, it’ll just look worse.. Like.. a wound or something haha), Han Solo t-shirt and pineapple earrings. Also, isn’t the monkey backpack adorable? ^^ Oh and we’re thinking of organizing a giveaway, is anyone interested in that? Let us know! You might just be the lucky one to get it!
Lots of love,
A very-tired-of-going-to-school-instead-of-having-fun Tall and tiny!
ps: Thanks Laura for watching the dogs!! xx
pps: For those of you who speak dutch: Jade is going to write some articles for Ze.nl so be sure to check them out!!
Just a quick update here! I wanted to show you guys the color bug again, isn’t the color nice? I used it on some parts of my hair and then went through it with my fingers to let it spread. This creates a more subtle, pastel-like color. I like it very much and I put it on yesterday morning and it’s still on! I also painted my nails in all kinds of colors, do you like it? And I just had to share these pictures of malteke and wookie! They are so damn adorable!! Anyway, off I go now.. I am going to cook a nice meal for my nice man =) Don’t you think it looks good on the recipe? I hope it will look just as good when I make it myself!! xx
Oh and CLICK HERE to listen to our new song!!
*** UPDATE ***
These are mine, what do you think? 😀 They were delicious!! Thank you Chloë for the tip 😉 x
another song upload! This was actually our second song so it’s strange that we’ve waited so long to upload it.. Anyway here it is! =) It started out as this really romantic piano tune Elvi had made, and then Jade improvised some lyrics on it and -wham- we had ourselves a song!
Me and my boyfriend have been together for a long time. Back when we were 15 years old, we didn’t live together yet and couldn’t be with each other all the time, when of course, when you’re in love, that’s all you want! So I often imagined being together in some sort of other world in our sleep, kind of like in that movie ‘the science of sleep’, and that’s what I based the lyrics on. But then a while ago I was on the tram, listening to this song and thinking of my grandma who passed away last year and realising how the lyrics could also be about death and mourning. And so maybe, this song is just for anyone who misses somebody. =)
Also, Elvi has done a good exam today (hooray hurah!!) and we took a picture together! Together that is!! You read it correctly. Of course she had to come check out the puppy again because it’s so damn cute!! Also a bit of a tiny i-eat-everything-you-own monster, but still adorable. ^^
Hope you enjoy the song and the picture!
Lots of love,
Tall and tiny
ps: noticed the orange color bug on Elvi’s hair?
