It’s the last Sunday of March already so time for my monthly recap where I look back at what I have been up to for the last weeks. Today it’s all about the cultural highlights of our recent travels through Australia, New Zealand and Singapore!
There’s more to that perfect Insta travel photo than meets the eye. It often takes a lot of careful planning and selfish behaviour towards others. I found this out the hard way during our recent travels. Find out more about my painful experiences here.
On the last Sunday of the month, I always write a little recap of that month for my series Reflections. In today’s review: our new worm pets, discovering that Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth is a fan of my music, and the winner of my recent blog giveaway!
On the last Sunday of the month, I always write a little recap of that month for my series ‘Reflection’s. Today I’m looking back at the exciting new music I’ve discovered, the 33 (!!) films and series I’ve seen so far this year and much more!
On this last day of 2018 I’m reflecting on my month of December. From a brief visit into David Lynch’s artistic world to my latest film recommendations: read all about it here in my final recap of the year!
It is the last Sunday of the month, so time to catch up with you again. What have I been up to this month? Find out in Reflections #3 as I look back on the month of November.
From King Crimson to Heaven 17, from Propaganda to Queen, from stage to screen, this week has immersed me in music from start to finish.
Reflections on… October 2018. Looking back, this month seemed to have revolved around charity and volunteering. But there were also several trips and of course plenty of films I need to recommend you to watch (or definitely not). Read the full article to discover what I’ve been up to this month!
You can learn a lot about other people’s personalities in everyday situations. When hubby and I found ourselves on a train the other day and asked someone to move from our reserved seats, the absurd reaction that followed left us completely baffled.
Reflections on… September 2018. This month I stood face-to-face with ancient terracotta warriors and travelled from sun-soaked Barcelona to tempestuous Liverpool. And there was more, but you’ll have to read the full article to discover all of this!
Who doesn’t miss those days when you could still play with flashy toys that had all sorts of buttons you could push and turn, producing animal sounds and wild flickering lights without people staring at you? I’m returning to those childhood days this weekend as by the time you read this I’ll be happily twiddling some knobs, pressing colourful buttons and flicking switches in Barcelona. Exactly what, why and where, you find out in this article.
On 1 and 2 August I will be part of a group exhibition of photos taken on the new Samsung S9 mobile phones. Since not all my friends and online followers will be able to attend the show, I’ve been asked by them to share some of my photos online. Because your wish is my command, here are some of my photos!
Do you also often leave exhibitions feeling inspired to make art afterwards? I’m no painter nor would I be able to draw a decent still life if my own life depended on it, but whenever I visit a collage or photography show, I cannot wait to get home to start making work myself. The same happened to me last week when I visited the show ‘The Shape of Light: 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art’ at Tate Modern. This show was the inspiration for my new Instagram account, focussing solely on black and white photography.
As I’m still recovering from my birthday party yesterday and am frankly too wrecked to come up with some inspiring blog post, I decided to share a little glimpse into my birthday weekend. Happy birthday to me!
How often are you asked where you’re REALLY from? If I’d get a pound (or Euro) each time I was asked this, I would almost be able to afford a new iPhone with that money. Although by now I’m kind of used to that question, it really annoys and sometimes even hurts me. In this blog post I tell you why. (Click on the title to open the full post.)
