How are you all doing? We are super duper busy lately, because we have been selected for the semi-finals of Students on Stage! Seriously, what is up with us and competitions lately… We’ll be playing next wednesday, at 4 PM @HET DEPOT in Leuven. So anyone who is in the neighborhood: come watch us play! Here is the FB-link to the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/177109995779269/
The weather is going up and down here. Some days it’s super warm and then sometimes it’s like -BOOM- someone turned the sun off. Ah well, when the sun is out we can take lovely pictures like this one below! Check out how Jade’s outfit is all matchy matchy. Diadem, earrings, lipstick, (temp) tatto, dress, shoes… She almost never does that!
We wish you all a happy weekend!
Hello to all!
Here are some videos of us playing live, we hope you enjoy them! Two of the songs are new ones, and hopefully we can record them decently and upload them soon! Love, TNT
A couple of weeks ago we entered a competition, organized by a charity called ‘Art For Education’ which tries to gather money to help Nepalese children go to school. We went to the finals, which were held today! We had a lot of fun! We played I like it (which you can listen to below), and two new songs which we wrote especially for the cause. One of the songs is about pollution and garbage, and the other one is basically a wake up call saying “Let’s make this world a better place!” We’ll upload them soon enough, hopefully = )
We had some nice pictures taken during our performance, which you can check out below. Oh, and before we forget! To everyone in Belgium (and maybe even the Netherlands?): the 1st of May, we are playing in the semi-finals of ‘Students on Stage’ and you should all come, because the audience decides who goes to the finals! Bring everyone you know! More info HERE!
Lots of love,

Sorry for not posting any sooner but we’ve been pretty busy.. Last weekend we entered a competition called ‘Art for Education’ (HERE is their facebook page). The concept basically comes down to this: there is an organization called ‘Art for Nepal’ and they organize fundraisers now and then to try and help children in Nepal to get the education they deserve. This time, they turned it into a little competition where the bands have to perform in a preliminary round before going to the finals. Jade heard about the organization from a friend and we decided to enter the competition. That way we could earn some on-stage experience as well as support a good cause! We wrote a song especially for the cause, which will be uploaded very very soon, so stay tuned! We hope it inspires people to help others out.We were selected for the finals, yippie! So on the 20th of April we will be playing there again. If you’re in the neighbourhood (by which we mean you’re either in Belgium or really close to it anyway) come join us there! It’s super cozy and they serve the best mint tea! Check out some pictures of us playing below, and stay in touch because we’ll upload the new song soon!
Lots of love,
Tall and tiny
ps: if you have a facebook account please vote for us HERE. Yes, we’re obsessed with entering competitions now, apparently.
Today is a very special day for us, because it’s our one year blog- and chictopia anniversary! Exactly a year ago from today, we started our blog and uploaded our very first outfit picture. This is our 157th post and we’ve already got 62 e-mail subscribers to our blog, 250 followers on chictopia, 109 likes on facebook and 3626 youtube views! It’s kind of silly though, that really, we’re a band, while most of our ‘fans’ like us because of our outfits. That’s understandable though, since most of our posts here are fashion-related. But that’s just because we don’t have time for music, because of school! We hope we’ll have more time for music soon… But back to happy, back to happy! Next saturday we are playing live for a good cause called ‘Art for Education’ and we’ve written a special song for it called Oh Oh Weyo! Elvi is Jade’s roomie for the weekend, that way there is a lot of time for rehearsing. It’s super cozy, we cook together, play music, play video games… Yesterday during the rehearsal we we’re sitting in front of the window (because that’s where the piano is) and since the window was open, everyone outside could hear us play. Then Elvi came up with the brilliant idea of taping a big paper onto the window that said “TALL AND TINY LIVE, GOOGLE US” but alas, after putting the paper up, suddenly the streets went quiet and almost nobody passed by anymore. Well, maybe we’ll have more luck tonight!
It’s been a good year for us, and we hope the next year will be great too! We’re celebrating our anniversary right now, with a lovely breakfast, mmm.. So we’re going to go back to eating that!
