Go ahead, make my day.
Interests: Hello hello! I am an 18 year-old girl from the Netherlands. I am in love with photography, art, lovely clothing and ehm... music + books. My favorite author is Haruki Murakami and currently I am into indie music, but you can always make me happy with The Beatles too!

Hello fellowbloggers/followers/humans, Today I finally reached a new philosophy. And a new plan. And therefore, I am quitting my account, here... at typepad. This means I will no longer be posting here, on blackbird. And I don't know if I'll make a new blog somewhere again. This will be standing here for sometime nonetheless. I won't delete it right-away. It's just that I can't find the time or bring myself to tell you guys about all the things happening in my life right now or show you what I find really interesting/inspiring. I really liked this. This whole "blackbird-era". But... Continue reading

AND GUESS WHO'S GOING THERE?!?! YES! ME! YAY!!! I hope you guys know Beirut, or at least the frontman: Zach Condon. For those who don't... I have found you a link to the Beirut biography at I would like to think that Beirut is sort of this one-of-a-kind band. The first album, Gulag Orkestar, sounds like an entire balkan orchestra playing modern songs as mournful ballads and upbeat marches but actually was the album was performed and recorded almost entirely by Zach Condon alone. Similar artists to Beirut are Fleet Foxes, Andrew Bird and Sufjan Stevens. (3 other bloody... Continue reading

Bonjour, bonjour! Oh wow, today is the first time I can actually use wi-fi internet in the Dutch trains! I'm glad, not only because it's simply super handy, I need to travel nearly three hours for the coming (almost) 10 weeks. So yes, thank you Dutch railway-people! Secondly, I'm always gloomy at monday morning. It's such a delusion to start again back at school, give another French presentation, do another research on whatever marketing-project. So since I've got a little free time + internet I thought it'd be nice to share some inspirational images. Hope you all have an AWESOME... Continue reading

(photo by miwaramone) Good day! Today I have spoken to some students at Art History and I've seen their books and I am now officially in love with 'History of Art'. So I suppose I'll be going to another uni coming fall! Hurray! Enough updates about life. It's been a while since I've uploaded one of these playlists. It's spring and it's lovely and the weather should come around. Some of them are from last year, or even before (many, many years before actually). Nonetheless... I think they fit perfectly for Spring 2011. I hope you don't know all of... Continue reading

Hello hello, last couple of days have been exhausting. But, sometimes, bloody fun too! On saturday we had a BBQ for the very first time this year. Oh, the nostalgic smell of BBQ, I really love how summer gets so close like that. -- Alright, enough BBQ, more nostalgia. I stumbled across an old trunk, the one people used to travel with. My dad and I got everything out of it... it's some sort of 'nostalgia-trunk' full of memories of the past, or... my parent's past and their families past. And that's when we got across this box full of... Continue reading

Hello all, sorry i've been absent for the last 2 weeks. I had a very good reason though, exams! I already got back some pretty amazing grades so I'm all good. I even bought myself a present! A very, very nice present indeed.... shoes! I really want to share em' with you... so although I really suck at making pictures of recently bought stuff and I am in the middle of unpacking the stuff in my new-old-room, I will post a picture. No fancy camera used, just good ol' photobooth. French Connection wedges! I am so utterly in love! :D... Continue reading

Oh, goodness. What a week, and it's only Tuesday! Anyway, I have been packing my stuff my old room back in my parents house... did I till you this? They are moving back up north?! Yes, that means that if I want to get back to them in the weekends I will have to travel for at least 2 and a half hours to get there.. BUT! That means I will get my good-old-big-room back and that they're back in the woods. Oh, I am so excited. Mainly because I am probably moving back there too in July. This is... Continue reading

The second post on this blog spamming you all with pictures of Audrey Hepburn. And.. fact! This is the 100th post on Blackbird. I found these gorgeous pictures on the flickr account of fred baby, and of course... there are more! :D (you should especially check out the ones where she won an award! Another thing... my thoughts and heart are in Japan. We haven't heard anything from our friends in Japan. Luckily I know one of my friends and her family is okay. I really hope Japan is going to be okay, I am very scared for the nuclear... Continue reading

Hello darlings, I am back from Rome since a few days... it's been almost a week actually. Almost. It seems like ages ago already. Oh, Rome was so beautiful. I have been at some places Audrey Hepburn has been in 'Roman Holiday', seen the exterior of the house where Keats died and I've been there where every die hard first-time-Rome-tourist should have been. I've eaten utterly delicious ravioli, prosciutto di parma, pizza, bruschetta and gelato! Seriously, if you're looking for some serious touristing, go to Rome. It was shameless. I have worn my shoes out! I hope all of you... Continue reading

The picture above, that in my opinion is fucking brilliant yet pretty freaky, is made by Troels Carlsen. I really want to tell you more about him, but I can't... I don't know anything but the fact that he makes really brilliant pieces. I admit, some of the pieces are dark and fucked-up (watch the monkeys). I stumbled across this one above on Tumblr, oh how I love Tumblr. You can find his website over here, by the way. Another thing, I really hope you guys are going to watch the Brothers Bloom (previous post) AND I AM GOING TO... Continue reading

Oh hello! I thought it'd be a good time to blog again. Yesterday I watched one of the most amazing movies ever made. This movie is pure awesomeness. This movie has some particular (lovely) characters who you instantly fall in love with... or at least I did. The Brothers Bloom is written and directed by Rian Johnson and the story is unexpected, twisted, weird and fantastic. It's about two brothers, Bloom (Adrien Brody: The Darjeeling Limited!) and Stephen (Mark Ruffalo: starred in serveral good films, imdb him) Bloom, the brothers Bloom. They are the best con men in the world... Continue reading

I really love this blog/tumblr. It's from this girl who, I think, has travelled somewhat all over the world. She has landed in Tokyo, Japan. And she shares the amazing pictures she captures. Speaking about Japan, and my somewhat addiction to it... my sister will be studying in Osaka coming autumn, so I suppose if I work really hard, get a summer job and spend less money on clothing I might be able to visit her. (So, I will be returning to Japan this year, SCORE!) But anyway, I will show you some pictures from 'Oh My! Tokyo' and then... Continue reading

I will be back to proper blogging when it's warmer outside. I feel like my heart and feelings are frozen. I'm out of inspiration. Maybe I'll blog when March begins, I'll be in Rome by then. Rome will light up my heart again. Continue reading

Dear all, I thought it would be fun to write this blog in form of a letter. Just to let you know what's going on right now. At the moment I am having an extraordinary free day. I am sitting on my bed, macbook on my lap, dog by my side and my new phone on the other side. Jep, my new phone. I have got myself a Blackberry, not because I fancy them... my friends could agree, because they would say I am the one detesting the Blackberry products so very much. I even once said, long before, that... Continue reading

This is a song / video you just have to hear / see. It is pure happiness. If you don't like this... well, then... ehr, yes. Okay, I ended up removing my last post.. just because 1 comment was enough encouragement. Thank you, very much. Well I suppose I will make another playlist for you guys, just because I really, really want to. I am not sure if I have posted any of the songs earlier, but they'll be worth mentioning again, I guess. Oh, and I'm a sucker for indie. But it's real nice, please do check it out....

Hello everybody! I don't know if you're familiar with my obsession with Audrey Hepburn. I don't know for certain if it's an obsession, but I have more pictures of her in my room that of one of my family members. You decide. I stumbled across this amazing student project on vimeo, it was about making a trailer or something similar. It is for my all-time favorite movie: Breakfast At Tiffany's. This here, we will consider it a short film, right? I must say that I think it's superb. Although I'm not such a fan of the combination of pink +... Continue reading

Okay, I think it is nice to show with you movies I consider truly amazing, good, pretty, beautiful, badass-good... you know, movies I like watching. So I am going to make a list this year in which I present to you films I consider AMAZING. That is why I put this post under the category of "The Amazing Movie list". Well... I think you get the point. The Greatest: this is a good movie is you're in an emotional mood and you're looking for something that is emotional... if that makes sense. It is a very good drama and it... Continue reading

Hello, i thought it was time for some pictures... last week was nice. Did lots of fun things and some studying... really, who did this, putting 9 exams just straight after the Christmas holidays! Idiots. Well good, 2011 is the year of change, of magic and of being friendly and the year I stop using a foul vocabulary. Fair enough. I love the smell of ginger, it is so fresh... although the taste is way too bitter to me. I used this while making spring rolls for new year's eve. (they were delicious!) Did you all have a lovely new... Continue reading

So it seems, this year wasn't a very good year at the blogging-side-of-life... especially the last few months I feel like I have been neglecting this precious blog of mine. Sure, you can say it's a big deal moving out of the house, getting into something you think you like but couldn't dislike more... But those days are over, aren't they? We move on to 2011. Anyhow, Christmas was amazing! I think I may have been annoying some people with my "wave!" for the camera, but who cares. I was busy with Windows Movie Maker but that just sucks. Sooo,...

The Bealtes always brighten my day... I just finished, well 2 hours ago I suppose, my Christmas dinner.. I made film! Everytime, so when I got the time... someday soon (in between studying) and when I'm back home-home I will edit it into a fancy short movie. Like, 2 minutes in total maybe? HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY, or I hope you had a really nice one! (I'm off to sleep, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz) (and take a look at Ringo's face) (I LOL'ed) Continue reading

Hello! I wish you all a very merry Christmas! Today I will not show you any photos. I will share with you some lovely Christmas songs. (not including Mariah Carey!!) Today me and my family, or part of them, went out shopping for our annual Christmas dinner. (you know, we like to think big at Christmas... and I've been "filming" all day too. I'm planning on making a short film on Christmas.. :) Enjoy the playlist! And have a very, very merry Christmas! Hopefully you have all amazing people around you!

I'm sorry, yesterday I totally forgot to post anything, well.. I rembered that I did forget something I had to do when I was watching 'Love Actually' last night. I LOVE that movie. It's next to The Muppets Christmas Carol my favourite... I love love love the little boy (who is now also seen as Paul McCartney in the film 'Nowhere Boy'). Okay, and I think I am making up by posting 2 photos. Not that I'm actually making up any with that but whatever. I already told you guys about Japan before, but there are always things left out,...

I know it's strange, one week I never even say hi and now I'm "blogging" day after day. Well, scusi. That's just the thing with holidays. Sure, I have a lot of exams straight after, but we don't care do we? Because the weather outside is frightful, and the fire is so delightful! Oh, and since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... I actually do have some place to go... Amsterdam! This afternoon I am going to walk through the streets of my very favourite city in Holland with a friend of... Continue reading
