My name…

Found some cool story about my name which I wanted to share with you all:ย 
ย 
“What does Saranda mean?”
ย 
About my name, it’s kinda special… not to brag about it, it just is haha. The story about how my parents named me is also special in my opinion. They saw a birth card of another girl who was born in the same hospital, I never ran into her funny enough haha (maybe as baby’s?). And my parents liked the name so much they named me Saranda as well, yay! ๐Ÿ˜€ But the meaning of my name is kinda bizar… Read along:
“[ syll. sa-ran-da, sar-a-nda ] The baby girl name Saranda is pronounced SAERahNDah โ€ . Saranda’s language of origin is Old Greek and it is predominantly used in Albanian. It is literally from the word saranda which is of the meaning ‘forty’. The first name is derived from the place name of the district of Sarandรซ in Albania, itself from the Greek phrase ‘Agioi Saranda’ meaning ‘Forty Saints’. A variation of Saranda is Sarandรซ (Albanian).”
So, translated to Old Greek my name means forty (40). By a miracle I was born on 4 october, 04-10, 4 times 10 = 40. Strange huh? It was meant to be I think! Serendipity in a way! And I must say, I love my name <3

Hello there sweet followers! 

Damn I am so busy these days! The easter days where just overbooked with things to do and  now I have one HUGE thesis deadline for tuesday next week. So it will be some amazingly hard work and there is a big chance I don’t get to update my blog each day….

1. Easter breakfast with my boyfriend: kaiser rolls / fruit / chocolat fondue / boiled egg / tea! This breakfast was so lovely! Only bad thing was the chocolat from a chocolat letter didn’t melt as I hoped it did haha. Better next time! I also like the fact that the breakfast was mostly healthy, since I am trying to really eat more healthy to become totally fit for summer… I really am lagging with my INSANITY program btw…

2. My easter nails, minty/turquoise and peachy… Brands nailpolish HEMA (dutch), Catrice and P2

3. A simple pizza margarita with freshly baked mushrooms (I LOVE MUSHROOMS!) and tomatoes, yummm! Not really very healthy though…. Oops ๐Ÿ˜€

Instagram Weekly #12

As promised in the Mellow Yellow post from yesterday I was going to tell you something more about tuesday! 

Since I have been living in Eindhoven I don’t get to see some of my friends that much anymore because of the travelling time, busy lives (working / studying). So when my friends invited me to go on a chocolat fondue date ofcourse I said yes! 

Friends + nice Italian gelateria/cafe + chocolat + icecream & fruit = best relaxation ever!

In Delft on one of the biggest marketsquares in Europe: me with hot starbucks tea / the new church / the  city hall / the Italian Gelateria and cafe Otelli.

We really had a lot of fun and a lot of chocolat hihi! It was really great catching up, next time probably will be a hightea date, I love tea! <3 Besides the chocolat fondue date with my (old) besties I also went to the Dutch National Circus in Maastricht, really the other side of Holland actually so that was a long long trainride. Really worth it though, I do not like clowns but I do like Acrobatics and Gymnastics acts. 

Overal, the day was great but very hectic! I even went running into the Sephora in Rotterdam to check out if I could still score some lovely items but unfortunately there was nothing left of my taste… 

From left to right: Selfie with my newest pride my DL1961 jeans / My guess wallet with Pan de Vida gifts (Pan de Vida is a foundation for Peruvian orphans which my grandparents are really involved in) / My Sephora collection with my older items and my newest items / Starbucks Jasmin Orange tea / Catrice nailswatch ‘The pinky and the brain’ / Shot from my latest outfit post.
