Book lover + reader + reviewer

Do: Workshop jewelry

Last week I went to a jewelry workshop by Lazuli, a beads and jewelry store in the center of Delft. I went with my boyfriends mother as a (late) birthday gift and I thought it would be nice to show you what we did!   The workshop we did was about necklaces. When we arrived everything we would need was laid out on a table in the back, as well as.. Read More

Read: The Paper Magician trilogy

People who I have shared my favorite books with, know I absolutely loved The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. So when the people from the Bored to Death Bookclub were looking for someone to read the recently released “The Paper Magician” I figured would be right up my alley. The Paper Magician is the first of The Paper Magician Trilogy and was written by Charlie N. Holmberg. Subsequently to reading.. Read More

See: Dutch Design Week 2014

This weekend I went to the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, just in time for a new “Going places“! The Dutch Design Week is a 9-day event in which Design in all its facets is at the centre. Unfortunately we were only there for one day, definitely not enough time to see everything (with 84 different locations/stands!). However we did see three of the main ‘big’ events: the Dutch Design..

Do: The knitting project

Something different So this week I wanted to write about something I am currently working on in my spare time. It is a knitting project inspired by a Sinterklaas gift/surprise I received. The girl who gave me the gift had made her own thread by spool knitting all different kind of colors. This thread she used to knit a small fabric sample. The ‘actual’ gift were the two needles she knitted.. Read More

See: The ‘Markthal’

I have been thinking how I could incorporate my Architecture studies into this blog. I have tried in the beginning to introduce you to the subjects I am taking this semester at the TU Delft, but I feel it is a bit boring to keep updating you on how my classes are going (they are going well by the way).  Therefor I have been thinking on how to add a..

Do: Stroop

Last week I shared a book review with you. I will be writing a new review about something (probably books) every month as a returning segment called ‘The Review‘. This week I want to introduce another recurring item: ‘Going places‘.  Introducing: Stroop Stroop is a pop-up café near the centre of Rotterdam. It combines delicious food with an exhibition space for (new) designers to show and sell their work. Most of.. Read More

Read: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

So for my portfolioclass we had to make a website about one product. We could choose whichever kind of ‘product’ we wanted, as long as the website was suited for the target audience.   I chose to write a book review, and even though I can’t post the site itself here (it’s hideous btw, thankfully we are learning styling this week). I can post the book review!   The book review is.. Read More

Do: An alternative work-out

Lately I have been trying to get a little bit more fit. So I have joined our university gym a while ago. Today however I felt like a different work-out.  I decided to go for a bike ride through the ‘country’ side of Delft!    I mapped out a route with a little help from a routeplanner, specially designed for bike rides. I planned a round trip from my house of about.. Read More

Thoughts: Learning new languages

This semester I will be learning two new languages. First off, I’m learning how to code and therefore I need to learn the ‘language’ of HTML. The other language I will be studying this semester is Italian. Learning a new language is always a challenge, but I am looking forward to studying both! Learning Italian As you may know, I will be going to Milan in march 2015. There I will.. Read More

Thoughts: Starting again

September is the month where everything starts again. The summer holidays are definitely over and the start of the school year is upon us. Starting again will be quite relaxed for me. I am following only a couple of courses at university. This means I will have plenty of time for friends, family, reading and work. I also wanted to use my spare time to start this blog, because in March.. Read More
