Blippo!

"The book of love is long and boring no one can lift the damn thing" ~ Book of Love


Because of my Room make-over I forgot to share these. But last but not least, here they are.  I got a box from Blippo with some extremely cute items.

a amazingly cute online store of all kind of lovely things. You can buy Stationary, sweets, magazines, and more. The first look on there shop is just, wooow! "This is adorable!". Their shop layout is beautiful, but you can scroll for hours though all the lovely stuff they sell.  The best part!, There stuff isn't even expensive! Blippo is also one of the biggest online retailers of Japanese and Korean goods for almost 10 years!  Blippo is a part of the ShopTilt e-commerce group and all orders are shipped from the ShopTilt Logistics & Fulfillment Centre located in Hong Kong.

They also have two subscription boxes, the Kawaii Box and the Japan Candy Box.

  • I'm such a fan of stantionary, all things to make my desk fun and adorable. Also I adore making letters I write cute so these stickers are just the thing to make something dull look fun.

THEN I'LL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE DARK

"You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it." ~ Killian Jones



Perhaps you have been following our Facebook Page and already know that we have spend a few days by the sea. Me and Paris have been enjoying the indoor swimming pool and a walk on the beach with stormy weather. That until hail started hurting our arms and legs and the beach became a thick mist of sand. We ran towards the houses and took shelter there. When we came home we enjoyed the sauna, some snacks, the pool and we cooked dinner. Except for Sunday, we decided to go out. Unfortunately on the last day I became ill, and now I'm at home. At least I feel a little better and can look back at the wonderful time we had together. We both needed some time to relax and what was better than a weekend by the sea. What do you guys do when you desperately need some time to relax?

Apples stand for health and wisdom

"Evil doesn't always look evil. Sometimes it's staring right at us and we don't even realize it" ~Regina



Today London went to my place. It was a hot day for the time off the year. So we went outside to get some lunch and good coffee. The plates were so big, that we couldn't even finish it. London had some chicken with fries and Paris had an entrecote with croquettes. "The Post" is a pretty popular place in Geel and the food and drinks are very good.
Back home we had some Gin Tonic and ate a fresh pineapple. In the morning we had an apple turnover. Yeah a lot of food today! We always try to keep it a little Once Upon A Time related. The apple turnover at least didn't curse us. We're still wide awake.
Captain Hook on the other hand, did prefer the Gin. No captain hook without alcohol.

Are there any beverages or food that you see in Once Upon A Time that you'd really like to eat? Perhaps homemade Lasagna? (not the overpriced one at Granny's.)

Into the open air

This is love, it is a distant star. Guiding us home wherever we are ~ Brave 
.

Hello dear readers! I, Paris, am writing now. My look is inspired on Once Upon a Time: Emma Swann. The black and white stands for the good and the bad. Emma is constantly searching for herself. I see myself in her. Constantly changing yourself. Trying to be a better person. Finding you happiness. Reflecting about why you do certain things, etc.

I'm now watching season 3, so she isn't turned into the dark Swann yet. The series are very nice! If I had the time, I would watch it all day! The whole concept is brilliant! Peter pan and Neverland is my favorite! Neverland turned into a evil place and you can't get off the island if peter doesn't want you to.

Winter is coming and that's why I'm wearing a sweater from JBC. My sister got it from a friend. She didn't like it. But I love it. It makes the outfit modern. I combined it with modern heels from asos. They are really comfortable! Asos is such a nice shop! But know my favorite! The skirt! It is a black skirt but it has such a nice pattern and it is for sale for only $5.40! Its from Dresslink. It's a cheap clothing site. But the quality is very good!  I hope you like the outfit

No one decides my fate, but me!

"I think it's safer I stick to my books. They're the only adventures I know that have happy endings." ~ Belle


Introduction New Theme
Hello dear mad followers. For those who aren't forgotten about us, perhaps know that we will start with a theme. That theme will last 3 months, after that we'll introduce a new one. The first theme will be: "Once Upon A Time." Why? Well, me and my sister have been watching the series for a while. Every time we watched Once Upon A Time together it was so much, so we decided to bring Storybrooke and the Enchanted Forest to our blog. We will introduce inspired outfit (like in this post), travel spot, adventures, and many more. We're constantly brainstorming and will make time to blog more as well.

About our absence
Well, a lot has happened. A lot of good and a lot of bad things, and now we try to get the pieces back together. I believe we have grown strong and are determined to write our own happy ending with our own adventures. Sometimes you have to pass a rough storm to finally see though a thick mist.

What I'm Wearing
Since Belle is one of my favorite characters in the series, I decided to start with her. Belle has a sweet style. She most of the time wears skirts or dresses, but sometimes you can also catch her wearing shorts. The look I was going for had to be light and still a little dreamy, since winter is not yet here. A skirt and a blouse did the trick, simple yet the details in the blouse and skirt make it interesting and fragile. Though Belle looks fragile, kind and beautiful on the outside, I believe she has a lot of courage and dares to give her opinion. And those opinions make beautiful quotes.

"And all you"ll have... is an empty heart and a chipped cup."

Tomorrow to look forward to

"Tomorrow, noun; a mystical land where 99% of all human productivity, motivation and achievement is stored."
.


Perhaps some of you have already seen this post, but somehow when I was rearranging all the maps with tons of pictures, suddenly I stumbled on these from my sister Paris. I don't know why, but I just love this outfit very much. The clutch seems to match the shoes so well, and the shoes are just too cute. Besides that, our hair has grown so long! I still wonder which suites us more, long or short hair. I'm sometimes thinking about cutting it short again, but since it's so long now, I'm going to keep it that way a little longer. We have been blogging for years now, and it made me realize how quick time passes by. "Most time is spend on what is urgent, and not on what's important." And I  think this quote is so true. When I'm done studying, I'm probably going to spend all the time I have with family and friends. Of course some time for your own to rest, do something you like is important too, but I feel like I've been sitting behind my desk for days and haven't seen the outside world at all. I want to see the world, travel, save money for an apartment of my own, make art,.. I guess I have to hold on a little longer and make it happen, some day. Do you sometimes think you waste time?

To Do Today, Maybe

I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars.~ Stephenie Meye



Hello dear maddies! I have been doing a lot of things lately. I have gone to Isabell, since she invited me over. They bought a swimming pool the day before, and since the weather was sooooo warm here, I couldn't refuse the offer. We swam, had fun, relaxed, took some pictures, ate sweets and even danced. o(≧∇≦o)   The day after my muscles were stiff and I can still feel it today.
Yesterday I went to my eldest sister. We shopped, cooked, baked muffins, enjoyed the sun and had a drink at my sister's, Paris, place in the evening. Today I am studding again, since I need to pass my exams. So here you have a few impression pictures I took in between. You can see we made yogurt icecream. I had to buy a new phone since mine was too stubborn to wake up again. (;¬_¬)
Anyway, what have you guys been doing?

Things never happen the same way twice

What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are.”C.S. Lewis




Hello dear mad readers, we finally changed our layout again. Paris and I both agreed on getting this template and I think its beautiful. I still have to make a few changes because not everything seems te be working, but it's a good start.
Paris and I met a few day ago to shot these pictures. The weather was very hot, so we spend time walking though the little forest behind her house. My sister has a lovely view on her balcony and it's always so much fun to have a drink there or just enjoy the sun. Besides that, we also decided to start running again every Wednesday. It's fun that we can spend more time together and it's also a great way to relax. Besides that I also want to make a to do list. I always want to do so many things, but I just don't seem to be doing them. So I want to write them down to remind me and cross of things on the list gradually. Anyway, summer is starting and it seems I will spend most of the time inside studying, unfortunately. Do you guys have plans this summer?

A Day in Antwerp

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”  ~ Dr. Seuss
.

Paris and I went to Antwerp. We first visited the park where we had a picnic. After lunch we headed toward the 'Meir'. We were looking for clothes and both had something in mind, though it was very hard to find what we were looking for. Most of the shops were offering pretty much the same clothes; Boho style. I know summer is coming along with the festivals, but does that mean that every shop had to sell the same style? It was somehow very disappointing. But we managed to find some things to our liking. We bought new shoes, two skirts and a few crop tops. I think we will be searching the web for more modern pieces soon. Besides that we had a lot of fun. We drunk bubble tea and smoothies, which both were ideal beverages for warm weather. Time passed by so quickly and before we knew we had to catch the bus back home.
