FASHION WISHES // Tangarine and Tartan

Everybody is searching for something fashion wise. "I want to buy a polkadot midi dress or I want to have a skirt in the perfect shade of red..." I call it "fashion wishes". So, I'm sort of improvising this, because it's been in my head for a while to combine my illustrating skills with fashion and the blog, so I think this will be a fun segment to do: FASHION WISHES, part uno. Let's see what I'd like to see in my wardrobe...

Living the Uni Life // Week 36/37

What's up munchkins! It's me! Mario! I mean Jessy :3

It's been a while since I posted something on the interwebs, but in case you've missed it: I am now studying China Studies at the University of Leiden. That includes a huge amount of traveling back and forth from my hometown in the center of the Netherlands to this minuscule town full of busy students a.k.a. people who are high on coffee and regret those drinks of the day before. The Dutch public transport network is to die for, for reals though. So crappy and especially Utrecht Central Station... the most chaotic place I've ever been to. I am a bicycle kind of girl and I will always stay that way, most definitely. Anyhow, the study itself is pretty interesting. I can not really tell right now, because I just had a few days of uni, but study program doesn't look very bad at all. It's pretty tough though, especially time-wise. You have to put so many hours into this study; it's very independent, so you have a lot of homework to do. Which means you have to have a lot of discipline and plan your things very well, which aren't my strongest points if I'm honest.

End Of Summer - Quickie #16

Op advies van TiffanyBee heb ik maar een keer 8Tracks gebruikt i.p.v. mijn vertrouwde SoundCloud of Youtube Player. Het is toch wel een tikkeltje anders. Je kunt niet vaak "skippen", maar je hebt wel een ruimere keuze aan muziek aangezien mijn muzieksmaak nog al exotisch is soms voor Spotify en Soundcloud alleen maar mixjes aanbiedt. Hey, noem me hipster, maar ik vind Indie muziek gewoon veel leuker dan Iggy... kan mij het wat schelen :) Hier is een selectie van mijn favoriete nummers die ik de afgelopen weken doodgedraaid heb. Nog niet dood... maar je snapt het idee.

Suggested by Tiffany from I am now trying the 8tracks player instead of my trusty SoundCloud or Youtube versions. I say it's not bad, but I don't like the fact you cannot skip infinitely. I'm a skipper when it comes to listening music, are you? However, some of my music is tad bit too exotic for Spotify and Soundcloud doesn't seem to know about not mixed songs, so 8tracks does a better job in those things. You can call me a hipster indie music lover, but hey, Indie music > Iggy... (I know almost all the lyrics of Ariana's songs, psst it's a secret;)) Anyway, here is a selection of music I've listened to this summer holiday. I hope you like it!
