Hello guys and girls!
Oh dear, we have actually started a new blog and didn’t mention it here because we didn’t know so many people still ‘follow’ this blog. We just saw the numbers and fell off our chairs. Woops! Please follow our new blog, it’s so much more lively (which isn’t difficult, as this one is as dead as they get). If you don’t use Bloglovin yet, you should really give it a go! And thank you for following us, we love you!
Tall and tiny

We’ve been gone for a long time yes, living in different cities, doing different things, you know, it’s not easy keeping this blog running that way. But don’t worry, we’re still best friends and are still working together! This week we made a music video for Sold His Soul! We went to ‘Doel’ which is a very interesting village. Because they wanted to expand the port of Antwerp in the sixties, the villagers were forced to leave. However, the village is still there, or well… half there. Windows smashed in, furniture lying around, graffiti everywhere, and here and there some residents who refuse to leave until they absolutely have to. It’s like a little ghost town, and it’s so strange to imagine there are people who’s family has lived there for generations… Anyway, nowadays artists go there all the time, because it’s so inspiring. And we thought this abandoned gas station was the perfect location for our video! Do you like it?
Enjoy! And if you like the video, make sure to like it on youtube, it means a lot!
Lots of love from your seemingly gone but not really gone number one favourite band xx
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…
With my hair being shorter, I feel like now is the time to experiment, because if something goes wrong, it’ll grow back quickly and if necessary I can dye it again. Since I always spend a lot of money on dying my hair blonde, I wanted to try doing it at home.
I googled some products before buying anything, and bumped into a lot of “my hair turned orange!!!” posts on blogs. I also read that when this happens, using an ash-blonde dye can solve the problem. So I chose to go for an ash-blonde dye, from L’oreal. Why L’oreal? Because a friend of mine has her hair done by her mother (who used to be a hair stylist) who says L’oreal products are good because they don’t contain something awful which other products do contain (no idea what though). So I decided to go for this one, it is from L’oreal and the color is number 10.21 called ‘Stockholm’.
Anyway, the box said you could use it on blonde hair, but not too dark blonde, and definitely not brown hair. Since my roots were becoming darker again, I was a little scared, but went for it anyway. The instructions said to do your roots first, and then do the rest, but since I had nobody there to assist me, that was not possible, so I just used it like a shampoo, all over my hair. Then I let it sink in for 30 minutes and tadaa it looks great. Not orange, not grey, not yellow, not green. Just a little lighter. I fell all refreshed now!
So for blondes I advise it =)
I don’t think products like these take the color out of your hair though, it’s just a blonde coloring that you place on top of your hair. So your hair might be a little lighter of fresher, but it won’t go as white as the box says it will. If you want your hair to become much lighter, go to a hairdresser instead. =) My natural color is dark blonde (almost brown really) and the roots of my hair are not blonde after using this product, but they are ‘warmer’ and a little lighter. So it doesn’t replace going to the salon, but it can postpone your visit a little, and thus, save you some money. =)
Oh and by the way, the box contains this ‘color holding conditioner’ which is heavenly good! It doesn’t make your hair greasy but makes it all shiny. Love it!
ps: might try something like this soon, like it?
A while ago we played some of our songs live at ‘Het Depot’ in Leuven and we just uploaded one of them on youtube, enjoy!
We can’t wait to start making music again!! xx TNT
The Walking Dead is a video game based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book series. It exists of five episodes, which you can buy separately, or all together for only €15. I think it’s an amazing game, that really sticks in your head after you’ve played it. It’s an adventure game, but unlike most puzzle solving adventure games, this one is more focused on the psychological aspect of the story, how you relate to the other characters and how your own character develops.
The game takes place in the same world as the comic, where there is a zombie apocalypse, hence the title: the walking dead. The zombies are called ‘walkers’ because of the slow way they walk, which is quite fortunate for the player, otherwise you’d be dead in an instant! ‘The Running Dead’ would’ve made for an awfully difficult game. You play the game as the main character: Lee Everett, about whom I won’t say any more, I’ll let you find out his story by yourself. Wat I can already say is that he is a very sympathizable character, who you really enjoy playing with. At the beginning of the game you find a little girl called Clementine, who you have to take of, which makes the game all the more emotional. You start feeling very responsible for her pretty quickly, and she is just super cute.
Throughout the game you encounter lots of other people who either join your group or become hostile. You have to make many decisions, which is basically the main aspect of the game: you decide and the game develops based upon what you do. That’s what makes you so personally involved, when someone dies, it’s often because of what you said or did. Often when I went to bed after playing, I kept thinking about everything I did, and doubting whether I had made the right choice.
It’s a great game to play together by the way. Mind you, it is a single player game. But one person can play and the other can watch. I played it with my boyfriend, and I know other people who did it just the same way. Because you have to decide fast sometimes, you can’t always talk every decision through, but as a ‘watcher’ you are also very involved in the game. I think the best thing about the game is turning it off and discussing (and comparing) all your decisions with friends!
I also really like the graphics, not super realistic, but artistic, and I admire that. Also, it’s made by Telltale games, which is such a great company, always offering great games at low prices. : )
So basically, get it get it! Play it! and tell me all about it ; )
Before going to Italy I got a haircut! Me! The one who always says she refuses to cut a centimeter off because long hair is so pretty. I just felt like having something different for a change, and went for it. So as you can see in my previous posts, my hair was shoulder length.
But then I started thinking… I’m young, I’m a student, if I ever want to try some stuff out hair-wise, now is the time! And then I started looking at pictures of Audrey Hepburn with short hair and one thing lead to another and BAM I cut off all my hair. Mind you, I’m not bald, it’s just really short now! I just feel like it’s a challenge, long princess hair is something you can hide behind, and I thought it could be a fun challenge, trying to create a fun look every day without being able to braid and make ponytails. I feel quite confident, knowing that I don’t need my princess hair to feel pretty! Quite proud..
It feels sooo weird! So light! It dries incredibly fast and I never have to comb it, nor use conditioner on it. Wow…
Anyway, since I’ve already had this haircut for a while now, I felt like it was time to tell you guys.. Hope you all like it!
ps: I will be trying out different colors too, stay tuned!
