An ode to Prince: did you know this?

 

Still speechless since two days ago… Prince was is my mother’s greatest idol and therefore he has also been an important part of my life as well. Just last summer we were still jamming to his new album Art Official Age in the car all the time. It looked like he was getting back on track, and he definitely wasn’t retiring at all. He still had so much to offer (people say he has more than 200 unreleased albums stocked in his studio in Minneapolis). What’s also very contradicting, is the fact that he was so young and healthy (he lives a super clean live). He had a never ending source of energy and was probably always living his life to the fullest. Prince was definitely a great inspiration for getting away with dressing like a woman every so often. He made androgen-men seem sexy. All of this together makes it such an unbelievable shock to think that he just isn’t with us on earth anymore.IMG_7375 Continue reading “An ode to Prince: did you know this?”

Get in the mood for autumn break

autumn 15

While the rain is pouring down in front of my window, I couldn’t be more excited right now. It’s autumn break! It’s been a hectic few months full of homework, deadlines and tests. Finally time to relax, right? I was planning on spending the days laying in bed and watching some (harry potter) movies whilst drinking chai tea. But I believe I won’t even have time for that anymore…Thankfully my schedule is filled with a lot of fun dates, and I think I am going to keep a photo diary on things I did during my autumn break. What do you guys think? I think that could be fun. I’m planning on baking pumpkin pie, meeting up with friends and visiting cities such as Utrecht, Amsterdam and Arnhem. Yay! I still have got some things to do for school, but we’ll see about that later ;). Currently I’m listening to my autumn playlist (which I’ve added down below) whilst packing my bag to spend the night at my friend’s. I’m picking her up from work and than we’ll be going out for dinner. After that we’re going to chill and watch movies. So excited to see her because I haven’t in a long time!

What are your autumn break plans?

Summer memories Playlist

Every summer has its special hit songs. For example, last summer it were hits like Bailando by Enrique Eglesias, Rather Be by Clean Bandit and Summer by Calvin Harris. This summer has quite some hits as well, and in my opinion the best ones yet since a loooong time. Here are my personal favourites! The playlist will defenetaly contain summer anthems that make you want to party and make you remember the good times as well. It’s a mix of current hit songs and some of my favourites as well, because I thought that this would be a good way to recommend them. Enjoy!

15 Dutch artists you need to know about – Music Monday

I generally have always hated traditional Dutch music, blegh. That kind of folk music, always including terribly annoying voices, melodies and lyrics, makes you want to run away as fast as you can from wherever you are at that particular moment. BUT! That definitely isn’t all that we’ve got in store in The Netherlands…

Besides these traditional Dutch singing artists and the surprisingly successful famous DJ’s such as Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Tiësto and many others there is another layer of artists that definitely should deserve a spot in Today’s Worldwide Top Hits if you’d ask me. Ps: don’t worry, they all sing in English! Continue reading “15 Dutch artists you need to know about – Music Monday”

Music Monday: The Ultimate Happiness Overload Playlist!

If you’re still not over your winter dip, sad because you didn’t went to Coachella or maybe because it’s already over, in a bad mood because your hamster died or something else: here’s your solution my friend!

I made a playlist stuffed with 46 songs that will definitely get you smiling and dancing, wherever you are! The list not only contains ‘new hits’ such as Want to Want me, Uptown Funk and Rather Be, but also some all time favourites such as Tonight Tonight, Hey Soul Sister and P.D.A. I even have classics my MOM used to dance to when she was my age (think: Micheal Jackson, Prince and ABBA). Oh yes, I went there. There are some guilty pleasures on this playlist, but that’s half the fun right?! No no no, don’t get skeptical right now. Just give it a listen. I’m 100% sure you’ll enjoy these tracks more than you think you would. I hope you have a very joyful and happy day and may this playlist get you in an even happier state of mind, enjoy loves!
