some shots of weeks ago

I think I mentioned once or twice that I wanted to make a short piece of film. A short montage of moments. So after trying to work with movie maker and making my first youtube video ever, I decided to shoot some more. Movie maker however doesn’t like me. Or anybody in that case. Simply moving one file can give you errors everywhere and after a while I decided that it just wouldn’t work. So I needed a new program to edit. And then I still needed to understand it, because there are all these functions and buttons and nicely said I am not to good at understanding digital programs. But with the help of youtube tutorials (and lowering some of my standards) I was able to make my first ever short footage clip ‘thingy’. I have no clue how to call it.


Short update

Hey! After doing a good job at posting 2 times a week I got both a writersblock and a lot of busy days. I have some nice ideas to write about so i will definetly be back. But for now i just wanted to let you know that im not gone forever and motivate myself to plan some time for my blog as well. I can’t say when I’ll write again but I hope that I can get some regularity back ❤ wish you all a beautiful day!

Een lijstje met leuke blogs

Dagdromend/spellbinded/zoete wildernis/a little adventurous/marjolean/
Searching For Tomorrow/Paper Boats/Noelle Savannah/Your inspiration blog/
Sabine Metz/etalles

Er zijn zo veel blogs op het internet! Deze zijn mijn favoriet (vandaar de volgens Citlali, want ja, dat ben ik). Welke blogs ik bezoek, varieert natuurlijk een beetje, soms ontdek je weer iets nieuws en soms kom je erachter dat een blog toch maar niet jou cup of tea is. De meeste blogs van dit rijtje, volg ik al heel erg lang, sommige al een paar jaar. Marjolean volg ik volgens mij het langs, al (minstens) sinds 2012 (whaat?!!). Al deze blogs zijn anders, maar allemaal zijn ze super leuk. Mocht je ze nog niet allemaal kennen, dan raad ik je aan om even een kijkje te nemen, is leuk!!

Als je op de naam van de blog klikt, wordt je doorverwezen ;).

Wat is/zijn jou favoriete blog(s)? 

The Liebster Award

A blogpost in English for a change.

I got nominated by Neelke, so sweet!! :)

The Liebster Award is kind of  a pay-it-forward outreach to small bloggers (under 200 followers). The rules are:

  • Answer the questions sent to you in the post from blogger who nominated you.
  • List 11 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers.
  • Ask them 11 questions thought of by you.
  • Inform them of their nomination.

The questions:

1) When did you start blogging and what do you really love about it?
I started in Februari (this year), which is way longer than I thought. I like that blogging gives me the oportunity to share stuff about stuff :)

2) What is your favourite country?
I’m in love with Iceland even if I have never been there.

Write about things you like to write about and enjoy it. Don’t compare yourself with anybody!

6) What is the best book you’ve read?
Pff I don’t know. I used to love the books of Roald Dahl when I was younger but now I really don’t know which book is THE best book I’ve ever read. Even though I have read quite a few books, I don’t feel like there is a book in particular that had such a huge impact on me.

7) Where do you find inspiration for your blog?
Uhm, my mind probably. I also think that we take up a lot from our environment.
