Hi guys,
I haven't had the time to write on my blog because I had a lot of exams this week. This weekend is also very very busy but I'll leave you with a little piece, okay (:

My friend Gladys (you should all visit her blog!) wrote a post about Wildfox Couture, an amazingly cool clothes brand. Have a look at their website and enjoy yourselves with the inspiring photographs! Go to -Collections- and then choose Summer 2009/Spring 2009/etc.
You will find loads of photos which you can just printscreen by the way, haha (;
Thay's what I did to put them in my notebook later.

Hi guys!

Today the weather was very good, like it is most of the days. I went in our swimming pool for the first time but it was still a bit cold. 23 degrees is not very pleasant to swim in but... okay. I think 25 degrees would be perfect! And I want to swim every day at least a few lengths because it's good for my physical condition.

Imagine you had one like this!

The clock is ticking and we're almost moving to our new house! I still haven't packed those boxes with my stuff, I'm a bit lazy at the weekends and in the week I haven't got any time normally.
I made a little list of things I need for my new room, such as a big standing lamp, a desk or just a table perhaps, and some decoration, but not too much. I can always make some by myself (like you know I'm fond of DIY crafties so...)!
Maybe I'll post some more this week, but I can't promise anything.

Have a nice week!

precious pearls, not diamonds

Friday is one of my favourite days of the week; I suppose I'm not the only one with this opinion.
I uploaded a few new photographs to my computer and enjoyed myself with some photo retouching programs (:

a precious candlelight holder with pink and purple-shade pearls. I love it

Sometimes I'm really surprises about the performances of my Sony Cybershot, it's such a good thing. However, I still want to get a Nikon ánd a Polaroid (:

polaroids fun

hi guys!
It's Wednesday again; that means just two days of school left this week ;)
I discovered something really cool this weekend. It's a programme that converts you pictures -whatever you want- into a real, oldfashioned polaroid! It's so amazing, really! When you open the program, there appears a polaroid machine on your desktop; you have to drag your photo to the machine and you will hear a clicking sound. There is you polaroid photo, appearing on your desktop too, but still in a brown colour, like in a dark room! Little by little your photo will appear in it's full colours, but you have to wait for a while. Then it will automatically be saved to your computer. You can download the free software here.

Here are some examples of mine

bright eyes


I promised you to post a picture of my new shoes so here there are

I hope you had a beautiful Sunday!
Me and my family were quite busy, because the truck with all our furniture from Belgium came today! Thursday 4th of April we're definately moving into our new house. I still have to pack boxes with all my stuff that I kept here, where we're living now. But I'll do that another weekend I think.
Have a good start of the week! x

spring grass is greener than you think

Hi guys!
Ah, what a boring day. I can't say I like school but I can't say I dislike it neither. I feel a bit, you know, put on a 'waiting list'. Our cours is almost finished -well, end of June, but that's not so long isn't it- and after summer I'll get started with Batxillerat (5th and 6th year of secondary school) and I'm quite interested in how it would be. But people have to wait, and so do I.

This afternoon we went to Tarragona, quite a big city at about 60 kilometers from our village, to go shopping for my brother and my father. I bought a sporty pair of 3/4 trousers in black, and -guess what- a hoola-hoop! When I saw it in the shop I remembered that good old times when I was young, and hoola-hooping all the time. Why not pick it up again? It's fun, you know ;)
I also found a cool pair of shoes, similar to Victoria's, do you know them? I already have a pair of real Victoria's, in green. But these were 'fake' if I may say that, but what's wrong with that xD
Tomorrow I'll post a picture of them, because I haven't had any time tonight.

Mother's Day

I promised you to post the pictures of my Mother's Day card -final result- so here they are

My mum was very happy with it (:

Oh yeah, do you guys know a good idea to store cables/chargers of a mobile phone, camera, etc. ? I'm always busy taking them apart from each other before I can use them; they're always stuck all together and I can't stan that. Any solutions? Thanks!

preparing Mother's Day

Tomorrow, 10 May, it's Mother's Day. I wanted to be creative for one time and decided to make something by my own. Card, flower, paint, heart,... that's it! So the idea was born to make a card with a dried flower out of our garden, decorated with paper hearts. I took a few pictures while I was working on it:

I also added 2 paper 'parasol' (sunshades) which I'm going to put in her hot chocolate cup tomorrow morning. The final result (card+parasol) will be posted tomorrow, I promise ;)

the best place in the world is home

interior inspiration

I think this used to be a living room of a cosy apartment, but the owners turned it into an enormous bathroom! A little bit too big, if you ask me, but it gives a very cool impression too.
Focus your attention at the wall design

And of course, a few new crafties for you!

Learn how to make these Balloon Luminaries. A fun and easy project.
For the handy ones, make your own moderne style clock.
Another clock idea: tin letterpress.
For your lost papernotes and lists, this solution to hang them up neatly: kate's tin message board.
Decorate your rooms with these gold leaf river rocks.
Get prepared for everything and start making travel tins for emergency cases! You can fill them with notes, photographs, lots of memories, or even a candle: kate's tin travel candle.
The greatest alternative for your oldfashioned calendar is this perpetual calendar.
Pimp your ugly wooden tissue boxes with this cover.

go with the show

Hi guys!
I'm getting in the right direction I think, because it's only two days ago that I wrote on my blog; and here I am again! :D

So, what do you think of the happy crafties? You all think it's fun? Tell me, so I know if you want more of those thingies, and I'll put some more on the blog later.
If not, that's okay too.

At Gym, we started with ballroom dance lessons today! How cool :)
Me and my partner (we had to pick out someone to dance with) are doing quite good and it can only get better. It was our first lesson, so we only learnt some basic steps of the Chachacha.
- One, step, chachacha, two step chachacha, three step, four step, five, and tuuuuurn -
(you remember this from the movie Hairspray? :p)

Anyways, have a nice day and don't forget to leave a comment with your opinion about the crafties! Love you all

happy ideas

Hi guys!
I thought my love for crafty things was over, but I made a big mistake. It came back last night, when I was looking through my crafty blogroll and clicked on some links coincidentally.
I found some crafty ideas for you!

This wall looks like he's made out of real mosaic, but in fact it's just paper (:

I don't know how about you, but I think these thrift-store plate mirrors are cute to hang all over your room.

We can already start writing our what-to-do's for Spring on this lovely cardstock lists!

Easy to make are these butterflies in a picture frame

Normally, I'm not into this kind of homemade things, but I couldn't leave you without a how-to for a delicious chocolate chapstick.

And last but not least, help mother nature ànd your own purse with these reusable make-up remover pads; you can put them in the washing machine and that's it!
