Vandaag mag ik iets superleuks aankondigen: een winactie! Ik mag namelijk 2x een duoticket weggeven voor het Clavis Book Café. Wil jij dus graag met een vriend/vriendin een geweldig boekendagje beleven, lees dan snel verder.
A while ago, I asked my followers on Instagram what kind of posts they would like to see on my blog. @jamshidhashimi asked me for a post on “how to read more” and I thought YASS. This is a really interesting thing to dedicate a blogpost to so that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

This book was sent to me by the publisher. This does not affect my judgement in any way.
“Secrets, once spoken, have a way of running away from you. They cannot be gathered in again.”
It’s been too long since I’ve posted something, but life has been rather hectic lately. And it will stay hectic too the next few weeks. But at least I’m done with exams for a while now so I’ll finally have time to read, review and write posts for you. For today, I’ve teamed up with Daniel Wellington (how exciting) to talk to you about their absolutely gorgeous new timepiece: the Classic Petite. Read all about it!
It’s time for something other than book talk this time. You might know that I’m also a TV show enthousiast, or you might not have known. Now you do. There’s a list on my phone where I write down every show I’ve watched so that I don’t forget. I will now use this knowledge to provide you with five of my favourite TV shows that I consider vastly underrated. All of them have a healthy 4 seasons (okay not all) with 40 min episodes. So get ready, take some popcorn and be prepared to all of these to your watchlist!

“There’s no magic more powerful than the human spirit.”
In the Netherlands, we have a few big cinemas, and Pathé is one of them. Every once in a while, they organize the “PAC Festival”, which is basically five previews of movies that are coming out soon (movies always come out “soon”… don’t they?).
Now, my mum and I are both lovers of film and she’s told me before that they were hosting this. Sadly we were never able to go before because of ~life~. But on Sunday, February 5th, it was finally time. We were going to be locked in the cinema from 10.30am until 11.15pm. Which was really fucking exciting.
