Zephyr and Bella


I feel like I should start this post apologizing for not posting – I seriously didn’t even notice that WordPress has changed, I feel like coming from a different century – but this probably won’t be the last time of succulent guilt-feels. So, I think we should just follow the rhythm of the hythm (can we get an a-men for that invented rime), and I’m going to post whenever I feel like a first-class-author-child . Oh, and I got five faves for you, dear friends:


Zephyr Hand Cream – And Other Stories

So, funny story behind this one. I went shopping with my dear friend Lisa from This Very Messy Mind Of Mine. We are both truly in love with And Other Stories, so since we were in Gent that day, we went to one of their only shops in Belgium. It is a beautiful store, and I actually feel a little bit underdressed every time I go there. Apart from the very uncomfortable feelings, I was very happy when we arrived at the handlotion section aka the pay desk. I was planning on buying the Fig Fiction one, but if you have ever seen their handlotion stock, you’ll already know what happened. I tried every single hand cream I saw. Many people know that going to a store with me, always ends up in an extremely awkward and painful experience. I tried this hand cream and when I pushed the tube, the cream just went everywhere. On the pay desk, on my legs and arms, on Lisa, on other hand creams,… The saleswoman looked at me, as angry as I’ve ever seen someone looking at me. I felt so bad that I just bought it quickly and run out of the shop.

But, anyways, I’m glad I slopped this hand cream on myself, because it smells amazing and I fell in love.


Top Coat Stripes – HEMA

This is the coolest nail polish I own and I love this. It is so much fun to wear, because it goes with almost everything. The fact that it is black makes it easier to combine with other colors, on your nails or just you clothes. The major benefit of this nail polish is that it is easy-peasy-extra-cheesy to put on your nails, because you don’t see it when you ‘colored’ on your fingers.

If they ever make these in confetti colors, you know where to find me.


Bella’s Lullaby (Twilight) – Carter Burwell

As I told you before, I was a diehard Twilight fan, when I was 12 years old. I collected stickers and articles, saved my money to buy the DVD’s and I read all the books (literally every book that was Twilight-related). After those crazy years, I banned it from my life, because of the devastating break-up between Kristen and Robert. Yes, I cried. Yes, I’m an embarrassing kid. There’s just one thing that I can’t ban from my world and it is Bella’s Lullaby. It is a wonderful piece of honest piano by Edward, the vampire. And I love it. And I can play it. I swear that this is the only Twilight thing I don’t want to give up, so please let me have my guilty pleasure of pure and touching grace.


642 Things To Write About – San Francisco Writers’ Grotto

This book is very mean. Very very mean. I have to put this in a drawer or something where I just can’t see it. Especially during my finals this week, I just want to write in it every time I see it. It’s hard to put it away and I have to force myself to do it. If you ever have to deal with writers block, this is a lifesaver. It stimulates my fantasy and motivation to start up projects. And the humor in this book is fantastic, seriously.

American Kids Try … – WatchCut Video

I don’t even know where to start with these. This is hilarious, just watch it,  please.
