"Matched" bookreview

It's green and shiny and it's not an eyeshadow...
It's my "Matched" book by Ally Condie! 
I have written a haul on this already and I've mentioned this book a few times already. Today, I'm going to review it! 

In this book, the government matches you to the person you are supposed to marry.
They also decide how many kids you can have, what you eat, when you die...
It's all pretty strict, but the people are happy. That's exactly what the government wants: a society that feels satisfied, healthy and happy.

Cassia is getting Matched and she has her head in the clouds. But a book wouldn't be a book if there 
wasn't some kind of problem that needed to be solved.
Cassia has a huge problem: she gets matched to two people! Basically she just has to figger it out herself and get over some obstacles along the way.
She also discovers that the government isn't as perfect as she first thought!

I did like this book, but I read the "Delirium" series before this, which is very alike - so I felt like I was reading "Delirium" for the second time.
I also wasn't very surprised at the end (I knew which one of the two guys she was going to pick because I thought it was pretty obvious), but I wonder what's going to happen in the second book!
I'll let you know!

Thanks for reading!

OOTD: Swinging!

Hello everyone! 
How have you been holding up?
It's getting colder and colder here in Belgium, but I can't give up on skirts and dresses just yet! This outfit of the day is one that I wore last week, during my very first "real" week of school! 

 As with my first outfit during the introduction week, I was doubting if I should wear this.
I come from high school and in high school people are very judgemental, not that I have a problem with that, I have a problem with their need to put you down.
Anyway, I decided to just go for it and again - I got zero negativity!

My T-shirt is by H&M, as well as the bun and the flowers in my hair! 

Thanks for reading!

Latest Obsession: Bobble! ♥

How are you doing?

I don't think I've talked about "Bobble" on this blog before, but it's time I talk about it now. I was looking for a waterbottle to take to school with me (because I'm trying to drink more water) and I found this bottle online.


This is a waterbottle made out of hard plastic with a filter in it, so when you drink tap water from this bottle, it will filter while you're drinking.
The filter can have multiple colours, I chose a pinkish purple.The filter has to be replaced after 300 bottles (or about 2 months).

I think this water bottle is so cute. It's small enough to fit in my purse and refilling is easy because tap water is easy enough to get anywhere.

I paid €9.99 (+ sending). It's good for the environment and I will be able to save money!

Thanks for reading!
Have a good day!

OOTD: Casual rockabilly!

Hello you guys!

Ever since I've lived alone, it's become easier for me to take pictures. I have a whole wall to take pictures in front of and the lighting is practically always good! 
Today's outfit is an outfit I wore last week. It was a bit colder that day so I decided I wanted to wear pants, but I wanted to keep a vintage feel to it.

These jeans are just basic skinny jeans but I decided to cuff them so that they look more vintage. I put on a striped sweater because stripes and dots are always your friends (especially as a vintage girl).
Then I just added a beige cardigan and a tiny little belt.
A scarf in my hair (it sounds weird but it looks pretty good), shoes on and you're ready to go!

  • Scarf (in my hair): New Look
  • Sweater: H&M
  • Cardigan: H&M
  • Belt: H&M
  • Jeans: H&M
  • Shoes: New Look
  • Watch: New Look

What do you think of this outfit?
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy your day!

Weekly Diary

Happy Sunday! 
How has your week been? This week has been so, SO much fun for me! Last week was pretty cool because I moved out and went to school for the first time, but this week was really exciting because I did a lot of cool things and I actually attended classes for the first time.
At first I felt like my head was exploding because we got so much information, but so far I've been enjoying it!

Living on my own is feeling pretty damn good right now, I'm used to handling my own business such as doing the dishes and grocery shopping by now! I'm also "getting to know" the city I live in, which is amazing!

In school, a lot of exciting things are going on as well! I'm getting to know all of my fellow students (some of us already went out to get Starbucks together), but I also got some assignments already! 
I actually got to teach for the first time last week! It was only 5 minutes and it was unannounced so I freaked a little, but I did well!

And you know what's the best part? School usually doesn't even start until after 10 am!

work work work!!
That's about it for this week!
How have you been?
