Hey everyone! In my previous post I already announced that I wanted to write a post about my sister Lotte.
The past two months she was a volunteer in Durban, South Africa. She worked at a project in an orphan house. I really want to share her story with you, because it's a story worth telling. She's only 18 years old, but did something so important for people at the other side of the world. I hope you will take the time to read this. There were a lot of pictures, and it was hard to make a selection, because all the photos are so beautiful. I'm starting with a few now, and if you're interested you can see more by clicking on READMORE. There you can also read the interview with my sister!  I hope you'll enjoy and that it will inspire you.

Hey everyone! I was very busy this weekend, so I didn't have much
time for blogging. The reason I was so busy was because my sister
came back from South Africa yesterday! She worked the past two
months as a volunteer in an orphan house. I'm glad she's back now, 
because I missed her a lot.

In my previous post I already announced I was going to Amsterdam
to see a friend. Ofcourse we did some shopping there! And here are
my two newest acquistions! A beautiful red bag and a golden necklace.
I'm bought both items at the H&M.
Because my friend had her birthday two weeks earlier, I decided to make
a birthday card myself. I painted her and me with watercolour paint.
You can see the result below.

And about my sister.. I will dedicade my next post to her. I'm
very proud of what she did in South Africa. Inspiration is an important
subject on my blog, so I would love to make her an example of that!

Hey everyone! This time I wanted to show you work of another artist: Erika Iris Simmons.
Her work is very inspirational and unique, because she made all this work with film from
recycled cassette tapes and old film reels. I've never seen something like this before! It's
amazing how much details you can still make with this material! Not only uses she this 
material, she also makes art with music sheets, labels and other materials. If you're curious
about that, I would definitely google her! The first one of Audrey Hepburn is my favorite,
but maybe I'm a little prejudiced, because she's such a beautiful and inspirational woman.
I'm getting ready now, because I'm going to Amsterdam to see a friend I haven't seen for
for a long time! Im really looking forward to it. I'll be back tomorrow.

Wauw! Aren't these paintings amazing? 
The artist who made them is Agnes Cecile. 
When I saw these paintings, I fell in love immediately.
I can't decribe how much they appeal to me.
They look so soft, fresh and tender at the same time.
The artist painted it with watercolour paint, and personally
I like this way more than any other sort of paint, so I'm
definitely going to try this at home!
In the video below you can see in high speed how she
paints it! I have to warn you, once you start watching,
it's hard to stop. What do you think?

Hope you like them! I'm gonna get ready now, lessons are waiting..

Hello to my dear readers!
I would like to share a project that I made. This project was my final exam for the subject Drawing 
at high school. At that time I just bought my camera and I was so happy that there was an assignment 
that included photography! So with no hesitation I chose to do this. The assignment was to make a 
photography series with the theme: Me as a different person (Ik als een ander).
Below I'm gonna show you the series. The photos tell a story together. You can follow the story by 
reading the lines and looking at the photos. In my story I put my most important message: 
Never give up on your dreams!
I hope you like it :)

Iedereen droomt wel eens van de persoon die hij of zij zou willen zijn...
Everyone ever dreams of the person he or she would like to be...
...maar vaak lijkt die droom te hoog gegrepen.
...but often the dream seems so out of reach.
Je weg naar die droom toe wordt geblokkeerd...
Your way towards your dream gets blocked...
...of je denkt het uithoudingsvermogen er niet voor te hebben.
...or you think you don't have the power to reach it.
Maar ook al lijkt er tussen jou en je droom een wereld van verschil te zijn...
But even though there seems to be a major difference between you and your dream...
...geen droom is onmogelijk! dream is impossible!

p.s. I know the quality of the photos is not so good because it was my first
photography/photoshop project ever, however I wanted to show it to you :)
By the way, have you seen that the person in every photo is hunting themselves? ;)
Thank you for reading!

"I believe in pink" is what Audrey Hepburn once said. 
I'm not a huge fan of pink, but now I bought this cute 
shirt at the H&M, I must give her equal. I love the structure 
and the colour, it's perfect for the summer. Beside, I bought 
a little wallet too (my normal one doesn't fit in my little purses) 
and the second edition of the Dutch Vogue! 
Oh, and for the Dutchies! Did you have a nice Queensday
yesterday? I celebrated it with two friends in Enschede,
and we even got the chance to take a picture with
Ruben van der Meer!
