Today is a gift, that's why they call it the Present.

Hello lovely people,

I feel tremendously guilty.
I didn't visit your blogs.
I'm not posting as regularly as I ought to.
I feel like an instigator (':
And the worst, I don't have an excuse, not even the tiniest, poorest excuse.

Which means, from now on, I promiss, I will post as regularly as possible and I will visit your blogs. I missed it, honestly. I love to read all the things which are going on in your life, all the outfits you wear, all the thoughts you have. But 'After a hurricane, comes a rainbow' as Katy Perry said in one of her songs. I guess that's nothing but truth: the coming posts hopefully are going to be rainbow-ish haha.

Little white flower. It was the only one as far as I could see, and I picked it :D

To all my lovely followers: I love you so badly, I don't know where to start, and I don't know where to end.
By the way, why is half of the Netherlands watching the soccergame of Italy and Germany? I mean, it is between Italy and Germany, not between Italy and the Netherlands or Germany and the Netherlands, which means the Netherlands is not playing. I might be mistaking haha. So why is everyone watching?
More news: I've made a twitter account and a tumblr account. Follow? (:
Lots of love!

Give-away: sleek palette of your choice!

Hello everyone,
Don't get too greedy and don't bolt yet when you read the title! Because yes, I am going to give away a sleek palette of your choice (dutch readers only). But you will have to exert for it! As you know, I am so lanky with computers as possible. Making a lay-out for my blog is an absolute disaster for me, which lasts for infinity hours.Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the lay-out the lovely Jolijn made for me half a year ago, but I think it's time for a change. So yesterday I was inspired by Linda's header and decided to also do something like that. Well, I have all the paintings I want to include, however I am so clumsy there is no way I will succeed making a lay-out with it. So I thought... Perhaps YOU can! Even when you don't have a blog, you can participate!

All together, what should you do to win a splendid Sleek palette?
Make a lay-out for my blog. The header should include the strawberrytea painting and the name of my blog. Furthermore you can add whatever you want (fond etc)! I would love it if you would take the colours strawberries have (red, green) in account. Extra credits you know (: And you should leave your email in the comments. You can share the lay-out with me by emailing me or by uploading it and then leave a link to the uploaded picture. Or something :D

What can you do for extra credits?
- Follow me via GFC (+1)
- Follow me via Bloglovin (+1)
- Follow my twitter (+1)
- Put the give-away in your sidebar! (+2)

I'm so curious! The give-away will run untill July 20. I don't know why that specific date. Some things are meant to be completely random. That's what makes life good right?

Lots of love and good luck! (:

Fly me to the moon.

Hello everyone,
Sorry for not blogging for nearly a week. I just felt like if I would post anything though, it would be pure debris. So that's why I've been away for that long. Forgive me please (:
Today I've been to the city with my sister because she was desperately searching for the perfect trousers. I didn't buy anything, the collections were quite disappointing. More over, we went for my sister, not for me.

Cardigan: Primark / Top: Primark / Brown belt: H&M / White dress worn as skirt: H&M, shortened by me /  Gladiator sandals: Blue box via Scapino

I love this picture of my sister. She is so clever and she is always so kind to take pictures for me. And she is more careful and less pendrous than my other sister regarding usage of camera!

Some other great news: I passed the Cambridge Checkpoint (in this post I'm telling something about it, it's in Dutch)! With a score of 5,1 out of 6! I'm quite proud of myself, to be honest (:

And I discovered the best youtuber ever: Andie. Andie is from Australia (I can't help it, in my opinion she sounds really british haha) and she is such a great singer. Normally I never enjoy watching covers on youtube but she has so much wit. Love it! To introduce her: here are some of here video's. Here (there she laughs more than that she sings haha) and here (if you only want music, goooood music, go there) and here (talking only but it's farcicial haha).
Lots of love.

I'm a flower, quickly fading.

Hello everyone,
To be honest, today's pictures are going to suck a little. I should have taken them outside however due to the testweek I had no time whatsoever. I hope you'll still enjoy them (:

 Tomorrow I will do my final test, Geography, and then freedom will arise! I'm going to make a little list what I'd like to spend that freedom on, because I'm planning to waste no minute of it.

1. Learn sewing with patterns. I'll start off very easily.
2. Learn putting a zipper in a skirt. Placing zippers are so hard. I really want to be able to do it.
3. Read the entire Harry Potter serie again. Oh yeah.
4. Write a story.
5. Get tanned. Well mr. Sun, would you be so kind to help me a little?
6. Make a painting with oil paint again. It has been too long. It will be based on Proverbs 3: 17-18 ('Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, and happy is every one that holdest her fast. ') I will show it to you as soon as it's finished. Of course! (:
7. Go to a Primark. I. MUST. GO. THERE.
8. Go to Den Haag and to Scheveningen together with Milena and Joy.
9. Make a Deathly Hallows shirt! Still! (':
Any other splendid things I should try/do? Any suggestions what you'd like to say on my blog? Curioussss! :D
Lots of love!

The last straw that breaks the camel's back.

Hello lovely people,
Testweek is going great so far. My Chemistry test went so well, I was beamed with happiness. Okay, not. I'm lucky if I get a two. Moreover, I received some of my marks of the tests I told you about. They're stunning, I feel so satisfied! Not, again. Biology: 5,1. I guess Physics is the cream of the story: 3,1. I don't know what went wrong. I knew I screwed up the test however I didn't screw up the learning... And no, my lack of selfconfidence regarding those subjects plays no role at all because even biology tests I'm not afraid of I screwing up.
But you know what, it doesn't matter. I will never have Chemistry ór Physics ór Biology ever again! Yay (:

I like the picture above. (Click on it for better quality.) Personally I feel it's the best picture I've made so far. Besides its prettyness, it also summons a liberated feeling. It makes me feel dreamy, a feeling that's similar to when I'm watching beautiful clouds. It makes me want to float to the clouds and dance up there. Okay, now all of you probably think I'm really a vague, dreamy person but oh, perhaps I am.
I've some outfitpictures for you, even though it wasn't what I wore today because I had no time to take any. I hope you'll still enjoy them.

White blouse: ? / Dress: (merci cylia!) / Brown belt: H&M
Let's see, what more is worth telling you? Well, Ellen and I made an appointment; we're going to burn our physics/chemistry notebooks at here place and if one of us has a three or lower for chemistry or physics, we both have to dance in our bikini's. Yeah, we're strange. But it's a strange world we're living in, so it fits. And I'm in a strange mood today, i feel happy and sad at the same time. Which makes it perfectely fit in.
After school I went to Joy and together with Mari-Lee we watched the musical we preformed in group eight,  primary school. Tremendously embarrassing and very, very hilarious haha.
Okay that was it for today!
Lots of love! ♥

Sick of being pushed to the very limit.

Hello lovelies,
I made this GIF to show you my desire to throw with schoolbooks because of the testweek that's freaking me out. I hope you enjoy it, just ignore the marvellous quality (:

Screw this! I'm off to Hogwarts!
Well, yesterday I had two tests: biology and English. English went very well, as I expected. Unforunately, in the very beginning of the biology test I already perceived it wasn't going well. I mean, when I think I did a really good job on biology-tests and then I receive a four or something. So what will happen if I know I kind of failed? I decided to just focus on the fact that English went well, just to avoid disappointed feelings haha.

Today I will also do two tests, Dutch and Physics. Dutch will be okay, however I'm not so sure about Physics. I mean; IT'S PHYSICS! But I prepared well (there even was a paragraph I kind of liked (!), it was about calculating KWh and the price of the electricity. It's a miracle, because the words 'I' and 'like' and 'Physics' have never been put into one sentence before in my life by me, unless it was a negative one :D) but I don't expect much of it, to avoid dissapointment.

Tomorrow I have Chemistry and French. I decided I'm not going to study for Chemistry, because there's no one to help me and I know doing it on my own will lead to practically nothing. I accepted I won't get any higher than a three (if I'm lucky) and that will be it.So tomorrow I'm going to do the first test in this year for which I didn't study. Nervous!

ps. Well, perhaps I'm going to study. A tiny little bit. To avoid a dull one, you know (:
pps, And then I've had the toughest subjects! Which means I will find some time to go outside and take outfitpictures. I hope I can go around half past eight, then the light is always so beautiful.
ppps, Lots of random chatting here! :D

Here the daisies guard you from every harm.

Hello lovelies,
I finished reading the Hungergames trilogy (the Hungergames, Catching Fire and Mockingjay). Stunning books and though the end is so deplorable it was so good. I want to thank Suzanne Collins for increasing my quality of life a bit. That's what really good books do right? They make your life slightly better. The Hungergames trilogy, chiefly Mockingjay, certainly did. Just like all of the Harry Potter books. I think you can state a book is one of your favorites when after you finished it it feels like you lost a bunch of friends. Always when I finish the Harry Potter serie it feels that way, and so it does with the Hungergames.
Todays outfit. My sister took the pictures in a forest nearby, thank you Julia!

Oh, how do I love climbing trees while wearing damaged tights so I don't have to be careful since they're impossible to either anyway (:

Next post will be even quicker than this one. Tomorrow my test week starts. I have a bad presumption about it, really. There might be a reason for it, too: normally my father helps me with Chemisitry and such but this time he doesn't even understands it himself. Hello insufficient! (:
Enjoy your week and if you have testweek too: bonne chance!
Lots of love!

EO youthday

Hello people!
Yesterday was incredible. I went to the EO youthday (it's called EOJD in Dutch, Evangelische Omroep Jongeren Dag, which is a huge event for christian youths, over 30.000 people came this year)! I never ever regretted the first time I came. Back then, Mari-lee asked me to join her (she's christian as well) and it was terrific... and addicting! Yesterday was my third time!
Let me tell you some more about the EO youthday: hit the 'more strawberrytea'-button!

Yet, never in extremity, it asked a crumb of me.

Hello lovely people!
In exactely one week my final testweek is going to start and it's going to be fun (ughugh). Some teachers think it's hilarious to make us suffer the very last weeks of school. But yesterday I brought my last biology lesson ever to an end which is a very, very good thing (:
I want to apologize for my complaining attitude sometimes regarding math/physics/chemistry. It's not fun for you to read and not fun for me to write. It's just I need something to let my frustrations out, and it became my blog. I promiss within two weeks you won't hear a thing about them anymore, since I didn't choose those in next year's profile! (What did you expect!?) Then, my blog will be one big bunch of positive vibes! :D

Blazer: H&M / Lace top (new!): H&M / Shorts: DIY / Tights: H&M

Without me, H&M would have gone bankrupt a long, long time ago (:
This saturday I am going to the EOJD ->  EO Youthday (a huge christian festival ) with my best friend and some of her friends and I assume it will be one of the best days of this year, as it always is. I will keep you updated whether it was!
And by the way, I have reached 150 followers via GFC! You're all so kind! I like all of my followers, I love those who take the effort to comment and I adore those who're loyal enough to even comment on posts when I am too busy to comment on theirs. Thank you so much darlings! ♥

Love you all! ♥

Oh and if I had a brain.

Hello lovelies!
Today was fun! Mainly because of my incredible friends who can definitely make me go paralysed with laughter any second (: The only dull thing about today was that my nose decided to just have its period, there was blood all over my shirt. Fortunately, I was able to remove most of it, but it was very annoying though!

Oh, and I'm nearly desperate: why does blogger say when I want to upload more pictures than these three there is no free space left? Will Blogger never allow me to upload more pictures than these from now on? Help me, SMBS! (Save My Blog's Soul) :D

Shirt: H&M / Belt: H&M / Skirt: H&M / Cardigan: Primark / Tights: Wibra
I want to go to hogwarts so badly. Oh, and today I found this amazing little film about the last days of filming Harry Potter. I almost had to weep, honestly.
Enjoy your evening!

And at once I knew, I was not magnificent.

Hello lovelies!

Previous day I had a sleep-over with Ellen and it was so much fun! We acted like we were mentally off, customized a Ben & Jerry ice cream, shopped, took a hell lot of pictures, shaved a kiwi and watched Dinsey movies. If've had a farcicial time, and Ellen, just in case you have the opportunity to read this, we should definately do this more often!

 Skirt: H&M / Tee: H&M / Belt: Primark / Cardigan: Primark / Owl ring: Bijou Brigitte / Owl Necklace: Kruidvat / Tights: Wibra


1-3: These are old pictures I never posted before since I had no change to take new outfitpictures
2: Posing with our lunch
3: Lucky, Ellen's cat
4: Our customized B&J ice cream! We bought cookie dough and put cinnamon and chocolatecookies in and the result was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten!
Too tired to type anything more. Yeah, I'm a lazy toad (:
Enjoy your evening!
