Black hour glass, our glass. Toast to clichés in a dark past

YES, I did eat that. But that’s not really the point, now is it? If it’s not a glass of wine, I sometimes get caught with a cone of ice cream in my hand. Hardly the case though, since I’ve been watching my nutrition and health for a while now. But hey, I’m Greek and I know good food when I see it, so I can’t deny myself everything! I’ve learned that you should give in to some cravings every once in a while because you can’t last any (healthy) diet otherwise. And no, that’s not a cliché, it’s the truth. Well anyway, while you’re reading this, I’m probably still at work… where I seem to be each and every day! Don’t get me wrong, I love the airport but a fulltime jobs with quite the irregular schedule is tough! Managing my blog on the side is even tougher. So bare with me, I promise you, it’ll all be worth it.

Talk to you soon, xo

Boom Clap! The sound of my heart. The beat goes on and on and on and on and…

Finished the book, saw the movie. The Fault in Our Stars is/was/will always be exquisite. It makes you realize how good of a life most of us have. I honestly want to go back to the movies and see it over and over again! I must say – and readers of the book will probably agree – that the book is better than the movie. Not only because the movie has a few different aspects but mostly because some scenes aren’t in the same order. That actually bothered me sometimes because I knew the book so well and it messed up the timeline. Also, some important aspects in the book – like the actual name of Augustus‘ book (The Prince of Dawn), the whole swing set ad, Hazel watching ANTM with her parents, Augustus having a fight with his parents before Amsterdam - were hardly mentioned in the movie. I guess I just missed Hazel thoughts on every little detail the most.

But hey… in the end, all that matters was the feeling I got. And it was very close to how I felt about the book. Plus, the movie has an amazing soundtrack! Sometimes, I even listened to it while reading. My favourite tracks are without a doubt Charli XCX’s Boom Clap and Jake Bugg’s Simple As This.

Have you read the book or seen the movie? YOU SHOULD!

Slowly, and then all at once

“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

Friday, yay! Some misunderstandings made me look for a new partner in crime for the Miley concert tonight but I’ve found one, so I’m at ease again. Other things happening this morning: the postman delivering my package, with his big blue eyes and handsome face… and me, in my Hello Kitty shorts, my messy out of bed hair and freaking tooth paste to cover my zit! On the bright side: he delivered what I ordered merely 12 hours ago. First up there’s Rens Kroes’ Power Food book. Kroes, as in, Doutzen‘s sister. Another natural beauty with a passion for healthy food. Second: the book I’ve been looking all over the place for: The Fault in Our Stars. I’ve been meaning to see the movie but I wanted to read the book first and see if it’s as good as everyone says it is. I’ve never cried because of a book before but this one ought to do the trick. I’ll definitely keep you posted. Speaking of books… TASCHEN is having a sale (up to 50%) next week! Looking for a cool gift or just another gorgeous coffee table book, then #TASCHENsale is the way to go!

On another note: I’m wearing some of my favourite pieces in this post. I got the honour to select some BOOHOO items and I’ve been in love with this cropped top ever since it was delivered to me! I haven’t worn the skirt as much as I want but Summertimes ask for fashionable measures, so I’ll be ready for y’all! And what’s that on my feet? Oops, a little something something I bought at the &Other Stories opening party in Antwerp. Come on, they’re gorgeous! Who could refuse such a pair (at 20% off!!!)? Nobody, I tell ya!

Happy Friday everyone ^^
