Longboarding



My boyfriend is turning 19 soon, and I've been thinking of getting him a longboard. I've been watching lots of videos about longboarding and now I really can't wait to buy one for him and one for myself.
I'm 90 % sure that I will buy one for myself because it really looks like fun to go out in the sun and ride down the hills. Of course I'll need a lot of practice before I can ride as good as those girls.
Since a friend of my boyfriend also has a longboard we can practice together :D.


A few years ago I used to skateboard a lot, but that wasn't really my thing. On a longboard you have more balance and you don't really have to do tricks and ride in a skate park.

But before I can buy a longboard and practice I first have to work a few more months, because it's pretty expensive. And you also have to buy protection for your head,knee,wrist/hand .

Do you have a longboard?

Yeaaah! I finally finished it!

It took me lots and lots of hours but it's done. I knwow I could have colored it better but I was so bored of this drawing.

Still I'm pretty happy with the results.



I colored it with Paint Tool SAI

What do you think?

Butterfly tattoo

I just got home from getting this tattoo. I've had lots of pain but it was totally worth it.

I have to go back to the tattoo shop within a couple of weeks to edit my tattoo because my skin sucks. Somehow my skin has problems with taking the blue ink. So that's why you might see skin through the butterfly.

My favorite photographer

Since this blog is also about photography, I thought it would be nice if I told you about one of my favorite photographers.

Her name is Sabrina Cichy, 21 years old and lives in West-Germany. I once found her on www.deviantart.com and she inspires me ever since. 

I hopefully will be as good as her one day. You should check out her gallery!

Butterfly tattoo

My mom got her first tattoo this week. Since she is allergic to almost everything she decided that she should test it first before getting a bigger tattoo. She got a very small butterfly and so far she hasn't got any allergic reactions.


We've been wanting a family tattoo since like June 2011 so I thought, why don't we all take a butterfly tattoo?


I went out to look on weheart.com to search for some butterfly tattoos and I saw some really nice ones.


I really like both places to get a tattoo. Just beneath your neck is very cute. But I also like that place on the arm to get a tattoo. What do you think?

New stuff

A few days ago I went to Rotterdam to buy some things. I was actually looking for some other things, but I came back with this:

I bought this at the Six. It's a bag with birds on it. I'm in love with that store. They've got lots of cute things and they got more stuff with those birds prints on it.

I also bought a simple red and a white tank top, but I don't have a photograph of them.

Remote control café!

So I saw this article today about a remote control café in Finland, Helsinki. There are standing chairs and tables you can control with your own computer ! It's so awesome. You can also change the music what is playing in there. I will show you a video about it. And this is the website where you can control the café yourself ! :D   http://youdesign.fi/en_GB/index.php

We just can't wait for sping

A few weeks ago I was very happy that the snow finally came. After all these cold nights, and days of slipping while walking to school, I really just can't wait for spring.

I'm sure a lot of people think the same.


To get you all in the spring mood I'm going to show you some photographs I made last spring/summer.




The thing I miss the most of spring and summer is the warmth, wearing dresses, feeling better ( I always feel kind of ill when it's cold), the birds, going outside to make photographs and that lovely smell of the new flowers. 

Of course the thing I hate is that there are so much more insects...spiders, mosquito's.

What do you love about spring and summer?

we can still survive

It's a very simple outfit, but I kinda like it :)

Moleskine

A month ago I ordered a Moleskine notebook online. I've taken my notebook to school everyday ever since I got it. I write quotes in it and I draw in it.

I thought it would be nice to show a few pages every week!

Do you have a Moleskine notebook?

2 years


Since the fifth of February 2010 Vincent and I have been together. To celebrate that we were together for two years we went to a restaurant yesterday. He bought me really pretty flowers and I had such a nice evening. 


I really really love him.

Interview

A while ago we had an interview on a blog called "Those little things". It's an interview about our blog, ourselves and our style.

Yesterday we went out for a walk with my dog in the snow. :) It was very very cold so we couldn't go that long because it would be too cold for him. I took my camera with me so I could take some nice pictures of the snow and my dog and people who were busy ice-skating. These two I like the most.

Snow

Yesterday we've got our first real snow in Holland. Since we don't know how long it will last this time, I decided to go outside and make some photographs. I didn't stay outside for a very long time though, because my toes were freezing. 

Are you enjoying the snow?

Tattoo

In July 2011 I went to a tattoo shop called "Tattoo Bob". I really wanted a feather tattoo. The first photograph was a feather tattoo I found on the internet. He copied the image and tattood it on my wrist.

The second image is how it came out! Doesn't  look like the first one at all. At first I was still very happy with the tattoo, but later I realized that it should have looked different.
Some people thought that it was a leaf.
i'm never going back to Tattoo Bob again.

So the second of February I finally went to another tattoo shop to change my tattoo. Of course they couldn't make it like the first image, but they could make it look more like a feather.
See the third photograph. That is how it came out.
I'm very happy with the results.
Sorry for the bad quality of the third photograph

I'll make another photograph of it when it's healed.
