Paolo Nutini, sunny side up.

Today I bought Paolo Nutini's brand new album: Sunny side up.
I never buy cd's, but since I'm a diehard-paolo fan, I HAD to buy it haha.



So, a little review:
This album is quite different from These Streets. On these streets there are a lot of ballads (like Autumn, Last request, White lies etc.)
On Sunny side up there are some really happy, uptempo songs (like 10/10 and Pencil Full of load) and also some ballads (Tricks of the trades, Keep rolling etc.) And some songs that are just right in between, like Coming up easy and Candy. I like these songs the most :)
Simple Things is a little bit too western-like for me.
Overall, I like it 'cause it's Paolo Nutini and his voice is amazing (that accent! <3) but I wouldn't say it's better than These Streets.
I think These streets have some really, really beautiful songs (and I love ballads haha) but Sunny Side up is just a lot happier and has songs in an other style. A style I don't recognize in previous songs.
Yeah, These Streets is still my favourite, but Sunny Side up is also really nice and you should buy it if you like Paolo!

Candy, Coming up easy and Tricks of the trades are my favorite songs from Sunny Side Up. It's in store now and costs €20,-

DIY danny roberts tee

I promised to show you the DIY print for this shirt, so here it is!


(click for bigger version)

When you want the print as big as I have done, you have to split the picture in two and use 2 pieces of transferpaper:


(click for bigger versions)

Note: I didn't draw the print, I only coloured it with Photoshop. The original shirt is designed by Danny Roberts and looks like this:


Have fun do it yourselfing!

chains and flowers





And 3 times hooray for this sweet sixteen-years-and-one-day old girl, her party yesterday was amazing! I gave her a 'troy necklace', like the one here. 'cause High school musical is just our thing hahah, and I'm also making a t-shirt for her :)


xoxo

some things just don't change. Some things do.

My room is almost the same! (except for the huge improvement in the wardrobe). I still have the same desk, computer, bed, sheets etc.
haha I look so young in the first photo! it's almost a year ago xD I hate those trousers now, they make my legs look fat haha.

Amsterdam 22-05-09

whoehhh sorry for the lack of updates the last few days, but I was very busy with school and yesterday morning I went to Amsterdam with my mom and sister.
BUT I'm back, with new shoes, accessoires and adventurous story's!

at first, the shoes I bought! The allstars are second-hand, but in really good condition, and only €25! The fringe sandals I bought at the H&M (divided) and the last ones I bought at topshop (as you could read on my blog a few posts back)



And then the rest I bought (unfortunately I didn't find clothes :( everything was just too boring or too expensive)
The tights are both from H&M, the sunglasses are from Pimkie, the chain necklace is from the H&M and the chapstick is from the Bodyshop (omg it smells delicious, chocolate!)



And I bet you're all very curious to know the adventurous story's. Well, we went by train from Amsterdam to Schiphol. At Schiphol we had to take the bus, to Aalsmeer (where the studio and the hotel was). So we arrived at Schiphol, and we had to get off the train, but I almost forgot my shoes, so I was a little bit slow. My mother was already off the train, and she stood on the platform, and when my sister and I got to the door, it closed! So we were still in the train, and we were heading to some unknown destination, while my mom was left behind at Schiphol.
We didn't know where we were going to, there was a chance the train wouldn't stop in hours! but luckily the train stopped after half an hour and we found a train back to Schiphol.
pfiew xD haha afterwards it is quite funny, but at the time it was really scary :P

Oh and we waited an HOUR for a burger and fries at a stupid restaurant called 'De oude Veiling' in Aalsmeer. well, we waited, but at the end we didn't even GET the burger and the fries, so we had to go to the Albert heijn and buy there some croissants and eat them as dinner.
So long live Albert Heijn!
and De oude veiling, you suck.

Love,
Marjolein

new lipgloss.



Yesterday I bought two lipglosses for the price of one with my sister. It looked so cool, with the light in it, and the colors were nice too.
I love the fact it looks quite chique and expensive, but it was only €2,50 each :D
The only thing I don't like is the taste, it's a.. chemical taste. Hmm not so nice.
I would buy it if I were you!

xoxo

edit: oh btw, it's from Etos!

walibi world!






Yesterday I visited Walibi with my best friend, my sister and a friend of my sister.
It was really nice! Even standing 45 minutes in a row for a rollercoaster was fun with Tess xD (see the last picture(s))
and oh oh I hate those jeans. I wanted to wear my topshop jeans but they weren't clean so I had to wear these ones. They're too tight and too low and too short hehe.

Oh and for the dutchies; ik ga naar het bevrijdingsfestival in Zwolle! dus als je ook gaat en me ziet, roep dan even haha :D
