Loving the sea


My first exam went well today! and 3 more to go!

Here is part 2 of my holiday update, pics from my vacation to the sea in the Netherland (called ‘Zeeland’). It’s really beautiful there and I went there with my parents. But my friend Lara also came a few days, and so did my brother and his girlfriend. We’ve had lots of fun and the weather was great! I also practised playing my beautiful mintgreen electric guitar and my mum taught me how to knit! It’s going pretty well, but it takes such a long time! You can see the result in the pics below!

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!

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!

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!!

Kalimera! Hola!

We’re back! Two weeks ago we both (separately) left on vacation because we had a full week without classes. It was so nice to get away from everything and just enjoy the holiday. Also, the weather in Belgium is cold and the sky is grey, but in Athens and on Tenerife the weather was lovely. Below you can see some of our holiday pictures, as well as our first second semester outfit post! The reason we didn’t post anything last week is because Jade got the flu and she was home all week. But now she’s back and we’re going to take pictures outside again, so they should be getting more interesting again as well. = ) Also, below are two very cheerful songs about holidays, play them while watching the pictures, it’s fun!

Hello to all! I went to the Belgian coast with my family last week and had a blast! We go there every year and it’s always so cozy and fun. We walked around in the beautiful streets a lot, played games, walked around in our pj’s, ate candy, drank cocktails, rode go-carts and ofcourse went to the beach! Even though it was cold it was very sunny weather! On my pictures you can also see my dog malteke had a great time. She went walking with us (which she loves), got a new toy that contains treats and got to go to the supermarket with us (and saw the dog food rayon for the first time ^^). It was grrreat! x tiny

And also, Elvi, those men on your picture are Belgian actors from a eh.. television series about prostitutes. :p Nice photo’s!
