The girl behind Sarandipity + Versatile blogger award

Hi all, 

I have seen this lovely tag on a few blogs and it got me inspired to make the same sort of get to know me post… Some time ago I already wrote a blogpost about my name, Saranda, and what it means but what does that really tell you all about who Saranda actually is? 

Well in this post you are going to find out a bit, and you wil also get the change to ask me some questions ๐Ÿ™‚

Seven things you (probably) don’t know about me: 
1. I am a student Applied Psychology, aspiring to study a Masters in Forensics, Criminology and Law to work as a Clinical Assessment Psychologist when I am done studying.
2. I have been together with my boyfriend for almost 5 years (anniversary on the 3rd of August!!)
3. I am a series addict, for real!! I follow like 10 series or more, and I really love every single one of them! Some of the series are Pretty Little Liars, Game of Thrones, the Lying Game, Vampire Diaries, Once upon a time, Breaking Bad, Glee and the Office. I love violent / manly series as much as the cute-fairytale-like series.
4. I hate staying up too long when I am tired but I tend to always do so… Weird isn’t it?
5. Uhm… when I don’t have to go to school or work, I can sit in my pj’s all day long! Or in a homesuit haha, I am a comfy kind of girl.
6. My nomination for the versatile blogger award is like a month or two old, I sometimes lack at keeping up to date… Sorry Starftsh! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
7. I love socializing but I sometimes tend to feel shy or misplaced at a party, which makes me nervous and very quiet.

And know it is your turn! Do you have any questions for me? If yes, please let me know in a comment or send me a message through the contact form / my email ๐Ÿ™‚ All questions will be answered next week in a second the girl behind Sarandipity blogpost.

PS: I do really have post-potter depression sometimes haha, I miss the story! The movies, waiting for the next book or movie… When the last movie got out I went to a Harry Potter marathon with a girlfriend and that was just amazing, only die-hard Harry Potter fans, being at the cinema for more than 24 hours, such an experience!


More than a year ago Sarandipity was born, a blog totally about fashion, lifestyle and ofcourse me, Saranda!

Since lately the blog has been growing and I have been more active myself, I think it is time to tell you all a bit more about myself, the name of the blog and more. So here goes, a sort of about me / about Sarandipity post. 

I hope you will all enjoy reading!

Remember, feedback, tips, questions everything is always welcome!


On january 4th 2012 Sarandipity was made by me as a way to express myself, become who I wanted to be and too share the things I thought where worth it! So when I started the blog was about a lot of things, including Psychology (my field of study). Soon I noticed it was very hard to keep a blog updated and to write about something you find interesting, but other people may not. Besides that writing about Psychologt was hard, I needed to have good sources and I was like: “This is not a way to relax myself, this is studying in a different way, I do not want this.” And so, the subject Psychology became my field of study again, and this time besides a personal interest, only my field of study. 

The blog was now more focused on fashion, lifestyle, and myself. In 2012 I posted 15 updates, which of some have been deleted because they were negligible. After a huge break with no updates at all I started blogging again around october and since then have tried to become more active on this blog. 

When New Years came I realized, I somewhat became the person I wanted to be during the last year. I am now more succesful in my study and work, had a horrible but very valuable internship, soon I will have this nice job. Besides that I now know what I want to do when I graduate, I have experienced this amazing trip to Singapore and Indonesia and I have become more grown up and self-assertive.

As you can read, I have some this I am very proud about! And I know have the confidence to make this blog a succes! During january and february this year I already have posted 17 updates and more will follow! 

So about me, I am a very normal, but overly sensitive person. I can be sunshine in the morning and storm, thunder or rain around 12 o’clock. I think I am a very creative, open-minded, loveable, caring person who should sometimes take some more distance too people who hurt me or maybe will in the future. At some points I can be too friendly and too nice to persons around me. That’s why his blog was also part of my self expression ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

The name of the blog Sarandipity comes from Serendipity: A “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it. (Thank you wikipedia!) I really wanted a name that I could reflect too that would also could be something when I used it in combination with my name, Saranda. I love the term Serendipity, the movie about it is wonderful, but I also had my own experiences, like finding and meeting this amazing guy on a holiday in Croatia, which I still love btw (he’s my rock, my support, I wouldn’t have become me without him!). So Serendipity, with Saranda in it made Sarandipity. I know the title doesn’t really reflect on the blog itself, but it does on me and the blog is me in every way possible. I really can be madly in love with fashion and lifestyle! In this blog I will be posting to you every week, maybe even everyday about fashion, lifestyle, inspiration, trends, myself and my own style.

Well, this is it for now..
I really don’t know what else too write about me and the blog…

Hope you enjoyed!
