Inspiration: Roadtripping

Usually when summer comes I’m in the mood for white beaches, palm trees and floral bikinis. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I’m going to the US this summer or if it’s my lifelong dream of going on a road trip  surfacing,  but this year summer makes me think of beat-up trucks and high way signs. I love getting inspiration from anything having to do with road trips. It’s not just the fashion, but also the music  that comes with being on the road and off course, that incomparable feeling of being young, free and lost. So for today I have collected some pictures and fashion items that get me in the mood to hit the road.

Friday Favorites - Week 17

It’s Friday again, wooh! This also means that it's time to share my favorites of this week. The last 7 days were pretty great, since I’m on a two week break from school and spring is finally in full swing. For me, this meant that this week was all about being free, doing whatever makes you happy and having fun for fun’s sake. Below the jump you’ll find comfy clothing, a strange music video and something about couches.

My 'Burn Book'

Do you ever feel like your head is so filled with ideas that if you don’t get them down on paper you’re going to descend into madness? Yeah, I’ve been feeling like that a lot lately. Usually writing in my journal or scribbling in my notebook is enough the calm my brain down, but during the past few weeks I’ve felt like I need more than just words to get my thoughts out there. I want, no need, to draw, collage an paint. Having no designated space yet for my doodles and other imaginary figments, like the notebook/journal I keep for my writing, I decided to create one with some gel-pens and weird stickers.

Liebster Award

During the last week I received several comments  from very sweet bloggers that told me I was nominated for a  ‘Liebster award’. I had no idea what this was, but it seemed pretty cool to be getting some kind of 'award'. It turned the Liebster Award is as awesome as it seems, since it gives you the chance to discover new blogs and get to know the bloggers a little better. So thank you, girls from, and, for nominating me!

Shoplog: H&M and Beauty

Spring has truly sprung and the last few days the weather has actually been nice. I love it. Suddenly I just want to go outside and explore, simply start enjoying life to the fullest. And off course, what better way is there to do that than to go shopping? So yesterday I went into H&M and Kruidvat and bought some make-up, clothing and accessories. And today I show them to you.

Friday Favorites

It's Friday! Which means that for me not it's not only the end of the schoolweek, but also the beginning of my vacation. The last week has strangely been a stressful, but at the same time relaxing week for me. I had a lot of schoolwork to finish up, but at the same time lots of my classes got cancelled. So, in spite of pressing deadlines I spent quite a few hours hanging out in the park with my friends, checking my Youtube subscriptions and just randomly clicking around on the internet. These are some of the things that caught my eye.

On dreams

Remember when you were little? When everything seemed possible? When your fantasies flowed into your reality and sometimes you couldn’t even tell the difference? When it came to your dreams things were easy. You just did what you liked and didn’t think much about the ‘buts’ and ‘what-ifs’.  So why does that change when you grow up? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and about dreams in general. It’s what made me draw up this little doodle. I know it really isn't much and that is what made me realize that a doodle wouldn't be enough to get my musings about dreams out there. So, I decided to give writing them down a try. This is the result.

My spring Wishlist

Spring Wishlist

Spring Wishlist by cursivetypeblog featuring a black jean jacket

Although it still rains frequently here and it isn’t exactly the weather for short skirts, I can’t help but get excited over the fact that it is spring. Unfortunately, my wardrobe doesn’t show it since I’m seriously lacking clothes that are fit for temperatures above 10 degrees Celsius. And that’s a shame, because I really do love spring fashion. I love not having to go outside with a coat on, but still being able to wear jeans without feeling like I’m melting to death. So, I have a lot of spring fashion items I really want to get and today I decided to share these with you.

DIY: Wall Decor from Old Magazines

I love magazines. I love looking at gorgeous fashion shoots, reading witty columns and finding out about Taylor Swift’s  latest fling (guilty pleasure!). Unfortunately, this love has led to the creation of a massive pile in my already small room  of Cosmos and ELLEs, some of which date over two years back. Since I couldn’t get myself to throw them all out, I decided to come up with a ‘creative’ solution; DIY’ing that pile away! I realized that my magazines could be used to make a really simple, but cute wall decoration. And it doesn’t end there. This really easy technique can be used to decorate cards, notebooks and even picture frames – so I can put that whole pile to good use!
