don't believe your own eyes...

This afternoon, my mum and I went to the rummage sale in Amposta. It was grey and rainy outside when we left and it began to rain harder as we arrived there. After all, it was a nice and cozy trip. I bought this darkpurple dress by 'Mado et les Autres'.

photo inspiration

To go on about my last post on Tuesday, Flickr and its countless photographers are still inspiring me. I coincidentally arrived at Yvette's photographs. She makes photos of the smallest things, especially in her own room, and most of them have got a vintage effect, which I really like. Sometimes she also puts a quote under her photos. I may say this is exactely the kind of photography I love, so I wanted to share my adoration with you. Thanks to Yvette for making so beautiful pictures!

roses aren't always red

I just fell in love with the photographs at Kristybee's Photostream ; they are all so simple. That's pure beauty of a photo...

oh summer, come into my world

I thought I could lie in my bed for the whole day, because I don't have to go to school today, but unfortunately my parents woke me up at 10.20h. With their stupid morning rule: if you don't get up in 1 minute, no computer for the whole day. But I have to admit, everytime I hear thát, I immediately get out of bed. On my father's suggestion, we went to a tiny village called Xerta, near the mountains and with stunning views! What seemed to be a uninteresting day, really became fun! Click for better qualityI thought this one was so beautiful, so I edited the colours a little bit (;
these were h-u-g-e !
I've made too much pictures photos to upload them all (:
Hope you have a good week!

Okay, my post about Amélie wasn't that successful nor interesting for all of you, except those who really love the film. So I don't want to waste your time; here's a new piece of blog-art:

I just discovered an e-shop called with some weird but original handmade stuff. Just have a look (:

Outfit pictures of the dayI don't know why blogspot always gives my photos a bad quality, but if you click on the pictures they will look better, I suppose ;)

Amélie Poulain

Last week at school, we saw the movie about Amélie Poulain.
I suppose you all know this one; I had seen a part of it before, a few years ago, but I never finished it, so now we're watching the movie in class. I always found it such a cool movie because Amélie is a bit weird but special, and I love her acting. The movie has a vintage background, which I really adore. I guess I'm going to watch it again at home, because I can't wait any longer (:

crafties part #2

I'm so excited! I discovered another part of making crafties. The more useful ones, the bigger ones.
I found some (actually a lot) cool tutorials and how-to's for making purses, little cosmetic and ipod baggies, etc.
They are all so nice, I want to make them immediately! But, still my problem, I can't sew yet xD
I'm going to ask my grandma to teach me because she is very good in it. Hopefully she will find the time to teach me some basics, and the rest will come later I suppose.
I feel like I'm totally obsessed with DIY crafties and all that stuff. My best friend and I are going to make our own wallet out of vintage fabric, or that's our intention. She has got a sewing machine at home, and I don't [yet] so we can try and find out what's possible. I already have a few usable tutorials that we can use, we only have to pick out the best one and get started.

grandma's memories

So, today I was in a creative mood and I photoshopped these photographs by creating a little vintage effect; especially in the collage you can see below, which I made for my other photography page.

Flowers with beautiful faces, all staring back at me...

Me, my brother and my mum went to the village today to make some pictures of the sea, the mountains ánd almondtrees (which we didn't find by the way). When we're going to school we always see so many almondtrees and I thought, we could go and take pictures of it, because it's sooo beautiful. But we went in another direction; my mum thought there would be more almondtrees there, but unfortunately she was wrong. We saw a few trees standing lonely between loads of olivetrees, but I wanted to picture a field full of it!
I've made some other very nice photographs but the batery of my camera is too low to upload them now.

I just read on the internet that Miss Sporty released their new nail polish collection, named Nail Expert Manicure. Cement Nail Repair is perfect for people with damaged nails; if you want your nails to grow faster, try Nutri Growth and they even thought of those who bite their nails:Nail Rescue Coach is full of vitamines and nutrients and its bitter taste prevents biting your nails again. For me, that last one would be useful, so I'm going to buy that one I think.
And not to forget: they only cost €2,99!

true stories.

At school, we did some research and talked about what we want to be later; about our jobs.
So this week I've been thinking so much about what I want to do in the future, but it's so difficult to decide when you're only 15. Some ideas I had:
something in connection with

-fashion designer
- interior architect

So, you can say that all of these are creative thoughts. That's what I really like, to make my own things and so on. Although I haven't practised so much with these kind of things, I think I will like it.
But what I also think, is that I have to do something with my languages at first, because I'm good in it and I also like it, and the creative part would become more like a hobby. That would be the best solution, I guess? Well, I still have got so many time to think about it! So I don't worry too much.
I would like to know what kind of studies you guys do! So please comment me;

I'll post some photos of my purchases tomorrow!

vrijdag 13 februari 2009


It's Friday again! I haven't made any plan for this weekend yet, except studying my English dialogue for Monday. We went to a very good restaurant this afternoon where I have eaten ''ecological rice'', a rice dish with grilled vegetables. [oh no, I haven't taken a picture of it ;O]
My crafties obsession is less than before; I was so excited to make all those cute things! But I know it will take a while before I can start, because I'm waiting for the right moment and the right place.
At the moment, I'm not really into it, and I still haven't got the material.

Oh, tomorrow we're going to Tarragona for some sightseeing and shopping of course!

topshop and a cute cat

Hii guys!
I was looking around again on the Topshop site and I discovered some new cool things.
It's like they update their collection every week xD

I've also seen on the site that there's a Topshop in Barcelona, I didn't know that ö
So when I'm going sometime, I'll definately visit it!

I also made pictures of a supercute cat that comes over every week. My mum and I (animal lovers as we are) give her some food when she comes and she's really cute! She's always meowing but we know she's happy, so it's not because she's sad or something.

Oh yeah, when I've got all the material for making the felt toast, strawberries and the other fabric thingies I showed you before, I'll start knitting and of course I'll post some photos of the results!(if they are representable xD) But it can take a while before I start making those things.

days like these

I'm sitting in my pyjamas since I woke up, and I'm going to stay in this comfy outfit for the whole day I guess. I did some research again for Do It Yourself things, cute little thingies to make, room decorating etc. but I didn't find anything interesting anymore ;( If somebody knows some cute thingies to make or a site where I can find those kind of things, please comment me. I havent' had lunch yet, so after finishing this, I'm going to eat some bread with Nutella :D I currently haven't made pictures of my new dress, because I'm not in the mood actually. You can expect them Tuesday at the earliest. Some days, like today, I really want to go back to Belgium, to my friends, to my city. It feels like I don't belong here. I'm living here now for 5 months but I'm still not totally used to all this. The cloud picture is selfmade

I wish I had my good old life back.
and I feel like I'm going to cry now.

I almost forgot to post something today! How could I, there's a lot I have to tell you.
First of all, we had breakfast in a little bakery in Amposta this morning. I ate a chocolate croissant and took a freshly squeezed orange juice to drink (which was a bit too large in size, actually). I immediately wanted to take a picture of my breakfast, that's probably why the woman of the bakery looked a bit weird at me. What's wrong with taking pictures in a bakery, restaurant or tea-room? If I wouldn't have taken a picture, I wouldn't be able to show you what I've eaten, so...
My mum prefered someting with pudding inside -which really didn't look tastefull by the way-, dad wanted to try something new, a huge brioche -or I don't know what- with sugar on top and my brother, who was in a bad mood -again- wanted to go for something 'safer', so he took a normal croissant and an orange juice too. I don't know why, but when we're going somewhere, my family is constantly discussing about several things that I can't even remember.[click for details]
After leaving the bakery, we went for a little walk in the town, searching for sport shoes for my brother and we also discovered a little shop, called
Actual, where I bought a dress (I'm going to upload a picture of it tomorrow, maybe, or next week).
We were also desperately seeking for grey
shoepollish, but we couldn't find it anywhere.

Today I was searching for '
do-it-yourself' ideas, because I want to make some decoration and cute things by myself. Here are some things I liked:If someone likes to know how to make the strawberries and the toast, just ask me and I'll give you the tutorial. (I'm sorry but I didn't find any tutorial for the other little breakfast thingies, but you can work at the same manner as with the strawberries).

Dior editor

Everyone knows the campaign that Dior made for their perfume 'J'adore'.
J'adore Dior is too famous to talk about again, so I'm not going to fill my blog post with that.
I thought this picture by another Dior campaign was more special;

Today school ended, like all Fridays, at 2 'o clock am. So I'm home for a while. So far so good, but I'm a little bit bored yet. And I feel tired. And I don't know what to write today. Even yesterday I didn't post anything. No inspiration. I hope it will return, because otherwhise my blog won't be very interesting anymore. But don't worry, and keep reading my blog! You visitors keep this blog alive!! I want to thank you all for your sweet comments and for those who haven't post any comment yet, be sure I will comment you back [we secretly all l-o-v-e that].
There is also nothing to say or to show about my latest purchases, because there aren't any xD.
I really want to go to Barcelona, and quickly! It's just 2 hours from here, so I would be there pretty fast. I want my best friend to be here, so we could go to Barcelona or somewhere else, but all of my good friends are living in Belgium, what's normal, and I'm living here in Spain. So I sometimes feel like I'm alone here, but I know they are all there for me when I need them. Maybe we're going to Belgium in April, when it's holiday, but for me just one week and in Belgium they have 2 weeks; it's so unfair.
It all depends of if we have bought a house yet, then we probably have to go to Belgium, to arrange everything and to pick up some things, etc.
And if not, I would really like a friend to come, maybe my best friend will, if she isn't on holiday, or my niece, Eline. I'm hoping for that ;D

Ok, Tomorrow morning we will probably have breakfast in a little bakery in Amposta so I have to get a little earlier than I'm used to on Saturdays :(
And as I am tired for the whole week, I probably have to go to sleep early this evening, and this time I really have to.

one day the sunshine will disappear

It's quite amazing to know that the sun is shining here in Catalonia almost every day (even now, in winter), while the weather in Belgium isn't so great. I suppose it's raining or even snowing there at the moment. On request, I'm posting some pictures of my vintage boots I bought in Antwerp this year (oh, actually last year, it was in December so..)

I picked up my Photoshop passion again! I mainly use this program to give my photos that special effect, what I do by changing the colours etc. Yesterday I did this picture:

[my outfit isn't that special, I know.]
I had my French exam yesterday and we started playing badminton in gym classes. I like badminton, I suppose because I'm pretty good at it. Although, better than soccer and all that stuff. I was thinking of going outside today, and take photos in my street or a bit further.
I'm not sure if I'm really going to that, but it's my intention. The sun is shining, nice blue sky and palmtrees to picture. Sounds good. I don't have much more to say, so I'll leave here.
