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!
We’re still working really hard for our exams, which is so exhausting… But the end of the tunnel is getting closer! In about a week from today it’ll be over. That’s relieving as well as frightening. You see, on the one hand we want the exams to be over asap and go lie in the sun with a cocktail in our hands. But on the other hand, we want (and need) more time! We just have too many things to study! Elvi has an exam today, let’s hope it goes well! It should, because she’s been working really hard for it the last couple of days. So thumbs up for her everyone!
Check out these pictures we took a while ago. They were taken when we had to go to this ‘French Sinology’ day and attend lectures that were entirely in French. We had a whale of a time, really, it was super interesting. Considering we don’t speak French, that was sarcasm. Also, the parts that we did understand, we didn’t agree with. So it wasn’t really the bestest of days… But we attended and survived, the way we do!
We took these pictures a couple of days ago but forgot to post them. Lai-Yan braided Elvi’s hair and it looks amazing! It is just so perfect, the way it is braided with all the colors… And check out Jade’s little red riding hood coat, isn’t it awesome? It was super rainy that day, so she was very happy. Who doesn’t want a coat like this on a rainy day?
Also, we’ve been working very hard in the library the past couple of days, and while doing that, Lai-Yan can’t help herself. She had to braid! So when we leave the library afterwards, our hair always looks amazing, haha!
Another made-in-the-library braid :
And remember this updo? Also awesome… ^^
Have a lovely weekend, and wish us luck with studying for the finals!
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!

We’d like to remind everyone who reads our blog that we also have a Facebook page, with regular updates, fashion photo’s and other goodies such as movies from our concerts etc! So if you like our blog, please like our Facebook too! Unless you don’t have a Facebook account, then please don’t make one, it’s quite addicting.

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!
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!
