I Amsterdam

 

hi there!

long time no see! Although school hasn’t started yet, vacation is over for me! I’m studying for the re-exams which will start this monday! But I thought it was about time for the first update after my great vacation! What have I done? Well, I’ve been to the wedding of one of my best friends in France, stayed there for 2 weeks, been to the sea in the Netherlands and stayed there for 2 weeks and socialised with all of my friends! And last but not least, I had a great amount of quality time with my mum, dad and doggie! This is part 1 of my holidaypics. One of the first things I did when I got back in Holland was going to the zoo in Amsterdam (Artis) with my mum. She told me I’ve been there when I was a little child, but I didn’t remember so we had to do it over again! It was a beautiful day and we rented bikes, had lunch at “bagels and beans” (which is always delicious!) and went to the zoo. Artis is an old zoo in the middle of the city and I loved it! It reminded me a bit of the zoo in Antwerp, which is going to my new hometown in about a month! Can’t wait to move! But first passing those exams!

Wish me luck!

Kisses,

Elvi

Do the peace thing

Hello!

Remember last Thursday when we got all emotional about our last day of school? Well, this picture was taken right after our last class. Don’t we look like almost-graduating sinologists?

No, okay, you’re right, we don’t. Maybe if we’d wear glasses and elbow patches…

Nope, still not working. But who cares? We look cool! And kind of Chinese, since Jade is doing the peace thing.

Last week we also let our good friend Cécile braid our hair together, it’s like all kinds of chocolate or different milkshake flavors mixed together.

Darn now we’re hungry.


Cozily Rehearsing

Hi!

How are you all doing? We have some pictures we forgot to upload! It’s us rehearsing for the Students on Stage concert. It was super cozy, and since the weather was so nice, we went outside and had a drink on the terrace afterwards. It truly was a lovely day!

Love, TNT

Like a My Little Pony

Hey you!

Guess what, Elvi decided to order some new colours to dye her hair and she added some ‘alpine green’ with the  ‘carnation pink’ and ‘rubine’ she usually orders. (All from La Riche Directions) The result: She looks like a ‘my little pony’! Which isn’t a bad thing at all, she loves it! What do you think?

Crazy Girls On Stage

Whazaa!

For those who regularly read our blog, this is all very repetitive, but still, for those who don’t: a while ago we entered a competition called ‘Students On Stage’ which is organized by our university. We got into the semi-finals (yay for us!) and those were held yesterday! We had a blast! It was a super tiny stage (even though it was at held at a very popular location) but all three of us got on. “Three? My oh my, I though it was only two!” Nope! It is only two, but for one of our songs we hired a very dear friend of Jade to come help us out. He normally plays an entirely different kind of music, but he had a lot of fun doing this for a change. Check out his own band’s facebook HERE. Thank you Matthieu! We also have a new favorite prop called ‘Rocky Rawr’ which we taped onto the synthesizer (you can see him on the left). And of course we brought the usual amount of flowers, clocks, bird cages etc. It was very funny, since all the other bands that played were rock or metal bands, our poppy sound came as quite the surprise for the audience. Haha, maybe we should’ve taken pictures of their faces instead of our own, that would have made a good series of photos!

We didn’t get into the finals (check out who did HERE), but still, we had a good time! At the end of our performance, one of the people who worked there asked us if we wanted to play in their monthly open mic, because she liked our music. Guess when that open mic was? Also yesterday! So basically, we were there all day. Which means we’re very very tired now, so it’s time to get some sleep. =)

Scroll down to see some pictures! You can see the three of us on our tiny stage, and the last picture was taken during the open mic. Enjoy!

Pink ‘n Blue

Hello!

Today we both wore blue and pink (well tall’s wearing pink everyday with her pink hair ^^). What do you think of Jade’s shirt? Elvi hates star wars, but she loves the shirt a lot too 🙂 It’s a funny shirt, because Jade’s puppy is called Wookiee. ^^Also take a closer look at jade’s hair, she loves to wear chopsticks in her hair and today she put an orchid in there too!

Have a lovely day!

Kisses,

Tall & tiny

Star wars, bows and pink hair a.k.a. spring is in the air!

hello!

Today we could sit outside again! We really have to enjoy the sun, because they say next week it’s going to be cold again! And we don’t like that.. Today we had a lot of classes, so we didn’t have that much time to stay outside, but we enjoyed every minute of it! And we ate our first icecream for this year! What do you all think of Elvi’s ‘new’ hair colour? It’s slightly different than the first pink colour she got, there’s more purple in it this time and she’s very happy with the result! Also check out Jade’s Gorillaz t-shirt and her Star Wars skirt below!

Kisses,
