Why I love thrifting...

Yep, you read it: today an outfit post. 
This morning Rebekka and I went to the two different thrift stores.
And yep, we were lucky! I found my jeans blouse for only €1,75!
Woohoo me happy!


I like vintage shopping. Not only because the clothes are so cheap or because
the fact that you were something nobody else is wearing.
That are just a few points why I love thrifting.
What I really enjoy is the ambiance in a thrift store. I mean, 80's popsongs, a lot of elders and conversations about absolutely nothing.
Elder 1: "What do you think about this cute brown shoes?"
(She held up a pair of absolutely horrible leather loafers).
Elder 2: "Oh, they're just gorgeous!"
And me, hidden in the corner, grinning.
Another subject I often hear is the weather. It's tipically Dutch to complain about the weather.
Today was a rainy day, so there was enough to complain about.
That nonsensical talks, mixed with André Hazes and the amazing stuff, that's why I love thrifting.
And, okay, I admit, the low prices :D

So, here's a quick impression of what I bought today!

Jeans jacket:  vintage
White top: H&M
Bracelets:       vintage
Black skirt:     H&M  
Tights:            Hema
Shoes:            Dolcis          

Have a nice day!

Tea Wisdom.

Today it's 11 june, official summer. But here in Holland it's anything but sunny!
This morning it starts raining (when I was cycling to school ;S) and even now it's still raining.
Gosh, where's the summer? 
But, the bad weather has a big advantage: I can focus myself better on my exams.
And yes, I have a lot of exams! When it's sunny, it's hard for me to concentrate myself.                                                   I mean, I like to go outside when the sun is shining, for example to go horseriding.
But in this rainy weather...nope, I don't wanna go outside anymore!
While I'm studying, I drink a lot of tea. Today the tea bags give me some inspiration.
Have you ever noticed some inspiring quotes of the label of the teabag? 
Well, I took a closer look and I saw some quotes I really like!

Very spiritual for just a cup of tea, isn't it?

^ I took the bags from this box with 'Yogi Tea'.
Exept the inspiring tea bags, this tea tastes also very nice ;D

I finish this post with a beautiful piece of music. Before this song I had never heard of Marble Sounds.
I really like this song, it cheers me up after a long day full of study =)

For now I have to study French, wish me luck!
