I have one month left in Amsterdam and I’m showing you my room just now. Well, parts of it to be honest. Maybe it wasn’t ready to be shown because it was messy or maybe there was something missing. I’m guessing – and I know you are too – it’s the second one. And what would be missing, you ask? Well, I got this pastel colored magazine stand at work. It was standing there in a hallway, all by itself, waiting to be taken home (when in fact, it would have been thrown away). Good girl as I am, I took the courage to give it a second home. Courage because, well the thing is bigger than me and I had to take it on the train, tram and a 5 minute walk over to my appartment. Heavy shit, I tell ya! But it was all so worth it. I couldn’t be happier, now that my Marie Claire‘s (and Elle & Grazia, oops) are beautifully organised in front of me. I caught myself staring at it and just smiling a few times, while writing this text.
Where was I? Ah yes, my room! The magazine stand is a big – literally – part of it now but there’s so much more, even though it’s a small room. You get to see the most fun part of my closet: my jumpsuits, my blouses and my jackets + my favorite pair of shoes: my ankle boots and sneakers. Apart from a comfy bed – not shown, sorry dolls – and a desk chair, I also have this other chair that I hardly use to actually sit on. No, I use it to throw all of my clothes on, pile some bags on top of that and hang my coats up at the back. The true purpose of a chair, quoi. Besides all that, I suddenly have a ‘huge’ collection of lipsticks and two scents I use on a daily base by La Gaga and Señor Jacobs.
Ahh, finally. You all got to be the witness of where I’ll have lived in Amsterdam. Okay okay, this wasn’t the full experience but I hope you got an idea of how my room is. I felt homesick the day before yesterday but I couldn’t feel more at home right now… staring at that awesome magazine stand!
