I know it's only early August, but since I came home from my holiday yesterday, to me it feels like summer is pretty much over. That's not a sad thing though, because I'm not really a summer person and next up is my favourite season: autumn! I love doing things like sorting out my wardrobe, change my bedroom and thinking about what colour I might dye my hair for the new school year. That last one is always a tricky one as I can never decide between dark brown, honey blond and reddish (like elinkan!)... Alsooo, there's no arguing that the autumn collections in H&M, Zara and such are always the best in the year. Excitiiing!
That being said, it has been a very nice summer. I went to Italy with my family. We stayed in Tuscane for a while and then went to Rome, which was very very beautiful. We saw most of the famous Roman ruins and Vatican City. We ate spaghetti in tiny restaurants and I learned a bit of Italian. I bought this lovely little book about Audrey Hepburn, called What would Audrey do? and read Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer, which was sometimes so funny and sometimes very sad and frightening. I also read a bit of Pride and Prejudice and The Picture Of Dorian Gray. On the way home we stopped in Milan, and I bought a beautiful dark red trenchcoat for the winter.
Now I'm going to read lots and lots of blog updates I missed while I was away!
For the last few days, I've kind of been thinking about cutting my hair a bit shorter... which is very unlike me as I love my hair long. I'm just curious what it would look like; my hair has always been quite long since I was like 12. Maybe, maybe...
Bonjour bonjour, First, let me show you one of my all time favourite photographs.
Just can't get over how lovely it is (it also took me forever to realize that she was holding a glass, haha)! By Ellen Von Unwerth, for Lula magazine.
I've just finished Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. It was, like Twilight and New Moon, absolutely amazing. I can't wait to go get Breaking Dawn, but I'm also a bit frightened because that's gonna be the last book in the series and I've grown just a little bit addicted, haha. Also very excited for the return of Skins! I thought season 1 & 2 were really good and I'm curious to see how the whole new cast-thing will work out. Have a lovely day, all!
My name is Sarah. I live in Groningen (The Netherlands) and I turn 16 this summer. I've wanted to start a blog for a while, mainly because it's such a nice way of sort of keeping a diary, especially if you really can't keep an actual diary. enjoy!
