Nostalgia

Yello!

How are you all doing? Jade had her last day of work yesterday and Elvi is still working hard for school! We found some old pictures from us at school, in between classes, and looking at these pictures, do feel a little nostalgia.. With us following such different classes next year, things just won’t be the same, which is sad but also nice because we are moving forward, and change can be good too. Anyway, we just thought it would be nice to share some pictures that have the both of us in them! The quality is not too good, but they are nice anyway. ^^

Love, TNT! (We should start writing this without the comma, as in commanding you all to LOVE TALL AND TINY, who knows it might just work)

ps: look at Jade’s long hair, so different…

35. studying at night in the garden

buitenWell that was a nice overview of the last 3 years! Next year will be so different, I’m going to move to Antwerp and Jade will stay in Leuven. I’m really looking forward to it, although I’m going to miss the ‘normal school life’ with the four of us having lessons together!  Hopefully there still will be enough Tall & tiny stuff =)

Kisses,
Elvi


Happy mother’s day!

Hi there!

First of all, happy mother’s day to all mums!

 Elvi is wearing an old blouse which here mum used to wear when she was her age! Thanks mum!

We really enjoyed the weather last week, but it’s getting colder again! It’s raining and that’s actually not such a bad thing, as we have to study a lot this week! Exams are coming up in two weeks and before they start we have to finish all our assignments. It’s going to be a pretty stressful period, because we’re going to have a lot of exams in a short period, but after that: VACATION!!

Kisses,

Tall & tiny

In the city

Urban outfits today! Hope you guys like it. =) It was horrible weather, but that didn’t stop us from going to the market! We went there to buy a banana, because Elvi loves to eat toast with cheese, mayonnaise and bananas (of which Jade thinks it’s a very strange combination but secretly can’t wait to try it..). And do you like the jeans? They were Elvi’s birthday present this year!

love, TNT (kaboom, haha!)


The romantic look

Hiya! We went for a really romantic look today, and found just the right location to snap it in a picture! Elvi’s reading a bit of bridget Jones’ diary and Jade’s playing her pink PSP. If you scroll down you can see a close up, where you can see Elvi’s curled hair (with thanks to Lai Yan for the effort!) and Jade’s pink pony (which she did with henna and pink chalk). Don’t we just look like sisters on that picture? ^^ We also took some more pictures at school, and as you can see Jade was happy because she won a little contest in class. Last but not least, we are very very happy because in march we entered an international Chinese language exam called 汉语水平考试 (HSK) and yesterday evening we got our results and both passed! We’d also like to congratulate everyone else who passed!


Class life and good weather

Howdy doo!

Today we took some pictures at school to show you guys what we are usually up to. You can see us in our Chinese class as well as in our calligraphy class. Jade also tried to style her hair according to the ‘ombre’ look which we love! Maybe next week we’ll try some pink or blue? If you look closely you can see she chalked her ends with some pink and blue already.

The weather was awesome today (about time!!) but the weather forecast says it’s going to be very stormy soon and then colder, aww… Well at least we had today. =) Positive thinking!
