Action Review: Watercolor Canvas

Action review: Watercolor canvas

Ja, je ziet het goed! Deze week twee blog posts! Naast het toffe Me & My Bullet Journal interview met Laura, wilde ik jullie graag deze review van de Watercolor Canvas van de Action laten zien. Ik kon niet meer wachten…

Ik kocht dus een canvasje bij de Action waarop de tekst ‘Throw kindness around like confetti’ staat. Confetti is met goudfolie gemaakt en de rest van de tekst en een aantal rondjes op het canvas, is van een soort waterafstotende lijm waardoor daar geen aquarel blijft zitten. Er zijn nog andere varianten met bijvoorbeeld bloemetjes en vlinders erop.

Het canvasje kostte slechts €0,99, dus ik was erg benieuwd of dit een beetje leuk zou worden. En om jullie lekker mee te laten genieten heb ik er een filmpje van gemaakt.

Aquarel, water, kwasten, Action!

Souvenirs from Stockholm


I’m back in The Netherlands!

It was sad to say goodbye to the city that has been my home for 5 months, but it was good. The last week I visited several museums, enjoyed the city from a viewpoint and walked it’s streets to say goodbye.

Coming home was something I really looked forward to: hugging my family again, seeing my grandparents and of course hugging, kissing and playing with my ferret Mexy after missing her for 5 months. Pretty much as soon as I touched ground in The Netherlands, my whole study abroad period seemed like a big nice dream. Everything around me is familiar and I’m used to it, it’s as if I woke up from a 5 month sleep and hit the play button again.

Luckily I have my family who visited Stockholm, so they can pinch me: It wasn’t just a dream, I really lived in Stockholm. And I have brought some souvenirs back home to remember my time there.

Let me show you what I bought to keep the memory alive. Continue reading Souvenirs from Stockholm

London Shoplog 2014

Last week I showed you the things I did in London. Today I’m showing the stuff I bought. I’ve bought some amazing things and ofcourse spent way too much money during the whole trip, but it’s all worth it.

Let’s start with what was on my shopping list. I love bags and I really wanted a nice bag for the summer. To take with me shopping or to the park. I wanted to buy one, but I came back home with three…. Yep, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s got to do, right?! The one on the left is a little purse I found at the Camden Lock Market and the one on the right is a simple linnen bag from Primark. But the one in the middle is most special. While on the tube I saw someone reading a magazine/newspaper and I saw an advert for an Orla Kiely sample sale. As soon as I got home I googled it and it so happened that it was going to happen in 2 days! So I just simply had to go there and that’s when I found this beauty in the middle. It’s my most expensive bag so far, but it’s absolutely worth it! Continue reading London Shoplog 2014
