a gift to myself - ALICE

as i told you, i was going to show you some pictures of the illustrated version of Alice in Wonderland - a lovely book! I'm very happy that i bought it! Last Friday, i went to the theatre with my boyfriend to check out the newest version of Alice; Alice Through the looking Glass. It was a very nice movie with lots of nice effects. I'm a really big fan of Disney so this book was very appropriate to put in my collection :D

i'll be making my suitcase today and have to fix lots of practical things!

See you soon!

so, what's going on?

Good morning!

this week hasn't been very spectacular, but today we're celebrating that it's Friday and that i'm leaving in a week for my big adventure! On Monday, i had to go to school to present my internship to other students - i didn't do a great job at all because i didn't really prepare myself and suddenly got nervous. anyways, after that i went back home to chill and read the book i adore 'Girl On The Train' by Paula Hawkins. In 10 days i finished it! It's only when you read the last 50 pages that you know who did what! I finished it while sitting in the sofa with a glass of white wine, lovely. 
Tuesday wasn't very spectacular. i went to school to show my next presentation about my thesis to my mentor and she gave me lots of useful feedback! so in the afternoon, i constantly worked on the presentation and the text. Wednesday i worked out in the early morning and had to work in the afternoon, i can tell you that i didn't feel my feet anymore when i got home but i still had to vacuum the living room so that's that. 

Yesterday i didn't do much, well actually i did. i bought a lock to secure my belongings while traveling, a small investment ;) i also prepared my presentation, like practising and stuff and preparing the questions that the judges might ask. i'll continue on doing that later on this day. i also chilled with our cat outside and had a lovely time with my boyfriend!

 you've got to treat yourself sometimes with a piece of apple cake and lots of tea :)
in the afternoon i'll be having some pie at a lovely place with my travel partner & good friend :) going to see Alice through the Looking Glass in the theatre tonight!! Excited!!
i'll be working again on Saturday and Sunday is for preparing my presentation and some more but i'm not sure yet ;)

have a lovely weekend!

exciting things

Well hello there! It's already Friday! I've been working three days this week, cleaned my room after a long time, went visiting my best friend for her birthday, went shopping for our party tomorrow, had some time with my grandmother and worked out. It was fun but yesterday i felt so tired, I already got up at 4.30 am to go to work and in the afternoon the tiredness kicked in. I decided to take a nap for an hour and had a lovely but healthy snack afterwards: lots of fruits, a new yoghurt which is an vegetable alternative for cottage cheese and a nut bar. After that i felt so much better, then i enjoyed the sunshine while reading the book i started this week, i'm already half way!

Anyway, in two weeks i'll be leaving for my big adventure and i'm super excited :D
tomorrow's our party to raise some money for the organization which i already mentioned. i'm going to enjoy my super lazy Friday and hope to have a blast tomorrow! Looking forward!

Enjoy one of my favourite songs: One Day Like This by Elbow

have a lovely weekend!

h o l i d a y

time really flies! already two weeks ago since i handed in my thesis and saw my friends from school. i'm kind of arranging some things for my trip to Kenya and i already want to start packing (more than two weeks before departure haha). this Saturday we're having a party to raise some money for the project we will be volunteering for. i have a day off today so that means not working. i'll be reading in my new book 'girl on the train' by Paula Hawkins and i love it already. i also have to clean my room which is not so much fun :)
Tomorrow's the birthday of one of my best friends so i'll be visiting her, but also working and shopping for our party on Saturday. i'll enjoy the sunshine and the heat in Belgium because it's not very common here ;)

enjoy this song - holiday by vampire weekend

Time flies, especially this year and off course when you're having fun! 
What have i been doing all this time? Studying, exams, internship, thesis and a tiny holiday (which means working and doing things i haven't been able to do in a while).

this month is presenting my thesis in front of a jury, talking about my internship at school, working and cleaning out some closets. i also went to the dentist and the doctor for some vaccinations and tomorrow i'll be visiting my grandma the hairdresser to get my hair done and meet up with a friend! it's busy, but i like it like that! i also read this amazing and illustrated book from Alice in Wonderland and Alice through the looking glass. Loved it! Some pictures will be online soon and i can't wait to see the movie in the theatre!

i'll be leaving in less than a month (yes, still in June :D) for Kenya! Sooo excited and really looking forward to this adventure!

i'm gonna hit the shower and then i'm off to work!

have a lovely day!
