Bookreview: Recept voor Geluk van Saskia M.N. Oudshoorn

Bookreview: Recept voor Geluk van Saskia M.N. Oudshoorn

So before I dive into this review, I just wanted to give you a heads up that I’m going to write this in Dutch. Why? Well, this is an original Dutch book, so there isn’t really any point in writing it in English. Recept voor Geluk van Saskia M.N. OudshoornGepubliceerd door Kobo En Sweek op 18 november 2019244 bladzijdes ★★★★☆ De 24-jarige Liv werkt onder toeziend oog van een opdringerige manager in de keuken van een grote hotelketen. De uren zijn lang en het werk eentonig; ze kan niets van haar creativiteit kwijt in het gebak dat ze dag in…

The Oh My Book Club

The Oh My Book Club

I’ve been playing around with this idea to start a book club for a while now. And today I can finally announce that I’m actually doing it. This year I really genuinely want to read more. Not so much to be able to have a nice number of books at the end of the year on my Goodreads challenge, but because I feel like I’ve been missing out. Last year I didn’t read that many books, 11 to be exact. My worst reading year so far… And I’m sad about it because reading is one thing that I enjoy so…

Bookreview: Dark Water by Robert Bryndza

Bookreview: Dark Water by Robert Bryndza

Last year I really enjoyed the Detective Erika Foster series by Robert Bryndza, I read the first two books and loved them both. Those were the books that made me realize I wanted to read more thrillers. That is also one of my reading goals this year. So I had to start 2020 off with a thriller, I picked up book three in this series; Dark Water. And I can tell you it didn’t disappoint!

My 2019 in music

My 2019 in music

First off, Happy New Year! I hope 2020 will be a great one for us all. But before we dive into the new year completely, let’s look back at 2019. As I do every single year, I made a playlist with the music I loved in 2019. It’s quite a full one this year! Going to start off with music that came out at the end of the year. In 2019 the best definitely came last… Coldplay released their new album Everyday Life in November and Harry Styles released his new album Fine Line in December. I can’t choose between…

Beautiful posters from the Poster Store

Beautiful posters from the Poster Store

You probably know by now that I’ve recently redone my room completely. It’s such a cozy place now. My parents’ bedroom needed a little update as well, and Poster Store was kind enough to send me a bunch of posters and frames. Most of them I gave to my parents, a couple I kept for myself and one is now wrapped up under the tree to give to a certain someone for Christmas. For my parents, I wanted to get some posters that were calm, had blue tones and suited them. They mostly have blue accessories in their bedroom and…

At the beginning of the year, I introduced a new series on this blog; Booklovers on IG. For some reason, I haven’t continued this series. Until today that is! Because today I’m happily featuring Manon from the wonderful account @Womanon here. She is a fellow Dutchie and I just love her Autumnal (and right now Christmas) themed pictures!

Coldplay’s new album Everyday Life

Coldplay’s new album Everyday Life

As you may or may not know, I’m a huge Coldplay fan. Out of all the artists and bands I listen to, Coldplay is definitely up there at number 1. They’re just amazing. In 2016 I went to their concert, my first concert actually, which was unbelievable. It may have been my first concert, but I still consider it to be the best concert I’ve ever been to. And now, Coldplay released a new album. FINALLY. It’s been a long long time, their last album A Head Full of Dreams was released in 2015, so yeah it was about time…

Creating a Gallery Wall with Desenio

Creating a Gallery Wall with Desenio

Whenever I’d see images of gallery walls on Instagram or on Pinterest I’d fall in love. Not that I’d ever be able to create such a thing… Since my room was a. small and b. had so much stuff on the walls already. I had stuff on the walls just to cover up previous holes of other things I had up once… It was a bloody mess I can tell you that much. But now that my room has had a fresh coat of paint and therefore all the holes have been filled up I could finally create some sort…

Monthly Playlist: September & October

Monthly Playlist: September & October

I’m so late with this playlist, well two actually cause I’m combining two months ago. But I still wanted to post this, because some really amazing music has been released in the last two months. So here you go, my playlist(s) for September & October! September First up September! One of my favourite songs that month was definitely Carry Me Away by John Mayer. He is one of my favourite artists and everything he releases is just great, so is this song. I’d describe this as the perfect Sunday morning song. Another song I’ve been loving is Letting Go by…
