Room tour

Hi dear readers, Todays post is brought to you by me being to busy to actually making a real post, and finally finding out how to make a slideshow. So who wants to see my room (or at least the nice creative decent parts of it) I got most of my inspiration from this room from teen vogue and flow (for more details see My post about inspiration ) So I won't be able to tell you where I got my things, cause most of them are vintage, or homemade. So what do you think? if you've found it an inspiration please let me know in a comment. and please share this post with everyone you know! or just those who you feel like are worth sharing this with. I love you all for reading my posts. xxx p.s. so this was my first real post fully in HTML, which posts do you prefer? the HTML ones or the ready-made-by-blogger-ones? let me know in the comments below p.p.s. That rimed!

Good reads

Hey everyone!
so today I want to talk about books, (guess the title and picture already gave that one away)
Personally I love reading, and summer break is my time to catch up with the books (during school I don't have time to read that much and sometimes I have to forbid myself to read since I get lost in a book within seconds)
But I've been reading a lot lately and I just felt like sharing my  latest best reads with you guys.
( These books are just in random order since I can not pick one that is the best)

the perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
So before the movie , there actually was a book. and I'm not going to lie to you guys I've seen the movie before I red the book but it was still one of the best books I've ever read, I liked how the things happening in the book where pretty simple  (there were no demons or crazy killing wizards without noses and stuff) but it was really down to earth yet so interesting to read. I recommend it to anyone, even to those who don't like reading.

City of bones by Cassandra Clare
I've got no clue how I started out reading this but once I started I didn't know how to stop, I actually red this book and the second book in this series my first week in italy, and it was a miracle since I also maintained a social life with my fellow camping people and did tons of other stuff
anyways, the books is really good, the dialogues are so hilarious! and it made me randomly burst into laughter quite a few times, it also makes me think way too much, the movie is almost out and I CAN NOT WAIT! if you have not red this book, I can see this is going to be the next big thing (think twilight big) so go pick it up and read this awesome book!

 A clockwork orange by Anthony Burgess
This is a really old book, Definitly not the young adult stuff I am used to reading. but it is about a group of.... youngish people so it's easier to read than reading about people who are old. it contains a lot of antidotes and other cool stuff and it really makes you think, and I like books that make me think
 The selection by Kiera cass
So I started out reading this book becouse of the pretty cover, thinking... okay the selection. let me give you a try. and then a couple of seconds later.... the selection was finished! I swear this book is the shortest book I've ever read in my life... and it is looks decent size it actually has 272 pages, but this book is so well written you finish it in no time. the story is great, I can best describe it as a more girly and romantic less evil version of the hunger games.
If you like girly stories this is definitly something you must read
 Girl interrupted by susanna kaysen
So this is another book that not that many people have red, the main character in this book is a girl who is crazy. and as a reader you start to live with the main character and personally I found myself getting a little crazy after a while.
It's a really cool book and it is not so huge, so you will finish it in a couple of days. this also really made me think.

Wither by Lauren destafano
another YA book, this book started out really interesting and it kept shocking me throughout the entire book, but there were also some really boring parts in it but after all the story was really cool, Sometimes I wonder how crazy lauren destafano must be to think about this creepy stuff.

Okay so there you have my best reads, for those of you who wonder why there is no Hunger games, Twilight or Harry potter in here, I wanted to show you some books that most of you have not red and if you haven't red twilight or the hunger games... you must have been living under a stone for the past couple of years. as for Harry Potter, Everyone has red Harry freekin Potter!
with that having said I just wanted to give a quick shout out to Polandbananabooks, She really has inspired me to read more books and her videos are just so entertaining and funny. It really helps to know that there is someone out there who is more crazy about books than me!
Thank you all for reading my blog, feel free to comment and please share this via post twitter, facebook, skype, tumblr, instagram, path, talking, whatsapp, calling, texts, or any other communication system you can come up with. it would mean the world to me!

where to find inspiration + best inspirational website's

Hey everyone!
I am really sorry I have not posted in a long while! I've just not had the motivation and I did not feel like blogging.
But now I do so let's get to it!
Today I want to write a little about were I find My inspiration, since I've been really busy with finding inspiration lately.
So I am one of those people who says that inspiration is everywhere, but in some places I can find more inspiration than others
 So to get started I will give you my top 7 Inspirational website's, this is where I get most of my fashion, living and food inspiration

1. Etsy, this site is filled with cute handmade or vintage art, clothing and what more, the best place to find inspiration and buy cute one of a kind stuff
2. Weheartit The more creative version of instagram, less selfies and more high quality inspiration pics.
3. Anthropologie also happens to be my favourite clothing brand. super unique pieces and really cute and smart living ideas.
4. Teen vogue, really handy for teenagers. here you can find beauty, fashion and lifestyle inspiration and tips.
5. Lookbook is where everyone who is anyone in the fashion blogging world posts his/her looks. a great place to find inspiration or try to post some looks yourself
6. Flow is the website of a dutch magazine with all sorts of creative ideas, for my readers who can't read dutch: no worries, most of the articles are in english anyway and pictures don't have a particular language.

Besides those websites there are other ways to find inspiration
I find most of my fashion inspiration trough:
- Tv series; Pretty Little liars is my number one fashion series, (I like Spencers style the most) but I also get inspiration from series like: Gossip girl, the vampire diaries, The carry diaries, hellcats... pretty much everey CW series.
- Teen vogue, Vogue, Vogue UK, Vogue NL, Elle, and every other high fashion magazine you can come up with
- Catalogues of fashion brands, mostly expensive warehouses give out magazines
- websites of brands I like, most of them have a lookbook, like: Abercrombie, Anthropologie, Sam friday, Hollister, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger
- website's with vintage clothing
- On the street, I usually go sit in a bench next to the street in amsterdam and just peoplewatch :)

Other inspiration like inspiration for art and my room I find in:
- Books, this may sound strange but most books set a mood. this mood I can use in a moodboard and turn it into a great inspiration
- second hand and artsy website's
- Travel magazine's
- living magazine's
- walking trough the Ikea (if you are a european you will know what i mean)
- houses of friends and family
- houses of the kids I'm babysitting, or of my neighbours
- flow,  a dutch magazine

Please feel free to comment and share! I love you all!
