Leaping into 2018: I am ready!

SarandaAdriana 2018 resolutions tilburg university

Ciao dearies,

It’s the final day of 2017 and 2018 will be here tomorrow! Last year has flown by pretty fast and has had some beautiful moments. I went on an amazing trip to Vienna with one of my best friends, I went on a lovely trip to Lisbon with my mom (where we met up with Achya and had an amazing day in Sintra) and I started college again (you can read more about that in yesterday’s blog post)! I have developed some professional skills and have definitely grown as a person… All in all, I have had a good year!

But, I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and I have some ‘new years resolutions’ to make 2018 yet another amazing year!

Here is my little list of “resolutions” or better yet: good intentions 🙂

  • Lead an Instagrammable life, but not doing things specifically for the ‘gram. Meaning that I am going to live life to the fullest, do more fun stuff, document more things by taking photos etc. but not doing things differently because it makes for a better feed or whatever. In other words, I am going to stay closer to myself.
  • Spend more time off-line (mostly meaning: less useless scrolling, less reading of negative news, less comparing to other people)
  • Spend more quality time with family and friends
  • Read more books, one book a month at least
  • Write more, more blogs/diary entries
  • Trust my own gut and go with it
  • Be more positive, worry less
  • Being more mindful
  • Learn new skills
  • Travel more

I hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve and I will see you in 2018! 
Happy new year!! 

Love,
Saranda

Trend report: End 2013 with a bang!

End 2013 with a bang! balmain boohoo mode fashion moda inspiration trend report party dresses new years eve what to wear sarandipity fashionblog

2013 is coming to an ends which means it is not only time for new years resolutions but first it is time of the biggest party of the year!! 

Are you ready to end 2013 and start 2014 with a bang?! 
With New Years Eve right around the corner I am looking for a nice affordable party dress! I really like sequins but I actually never wear them, except on special occasions. So while I am not very very rich I tend to buy more functional dresses with less sequins and glitters 😉 But I just found out that Boohoo.com has some amazing low budget party dresses! Well we’ll see, for now I made this Polyvore collage with some of my favorite party dresses! My favorite ones are the teal / green-blue dresses and the gold / teal zigzag dress! 

What is your favorite dress from the ones above? Please let me know in a comment!

Best 2012 experience!

Hi readers & followers! 

How is everyone doing? Still got all your fingers? No strange burns on your body from a sigarette in a club?

Good! A happy start of a happy new year! We all survived the end of the world and 2012! Congratulations! 

😀


2012 has been a nice year with the normal ups and downs like always, but I should say last year I have had the best experience in my life so far! Never had I been out of Europe before but last year I want to Asia and visited Singapore and Indonesia. Singapore was a remarkable city which I unfortunately didn’t see enough of. Indonesia too was a remarkable, lovely and so wonderful country which I unfortunately didn’t see enough of.

So I have to get back at some point in my life, and I don’t mind at all! 😉 I’ve done so many things there, went to heaven on earth Raja Ampat for example, had a summerschool teachers job and have been surfing in Bali. Every moment of last years journey will always be kept safe in my heart. 

For now I would like to look back, taking you all with me, by posting and looking at my own pictures 🙂 


Let’s make some new epic memories this year!

PS: in this post I will show you the pictures of Singapore, Manado & Sorong. The pictures from Raja Ampat, Bali & Jakarta will follow in the next post!

Hallo lezers en volgers! Hoe is het met jullie allemaal? Heb je al je vingers nog? Geen gekke verbrandingen op je lichaam van een sigaret in een club of kroeg? Mooi zo! Een vrolijke start van een gelukkig nieuw jaar dus! We hebben allemaal het einde van de wereld en 2012 overleegd, gefeliciteerd! 😉 

2012 was een prima jaar met de normale en gewoonlijke ups en downs. Maar afgelopen jaar heb ik zelf de beste ervaring in mijn leven tot nu toe meegemaakt! Nog nooit was ik buiten Europa op vakantie of reis geweest maar afgelopen jaar ben ik naar Azië geweest en heb daar Singapore en Indonesië bezocht. Beide plekken, stad en land waren opmerkelijk, liefelijk / heerlijk en werkelijk prachtig! Helaas heb ik van beiden plekken naar mijn idee nog lang niet genoeg gezien. Dus moet ik een keer in mijn leven terug, uiteraard vind ik dat totaal niet erg! Ik heb in Indonesië veel dingen meegemaakt en gedaan, ik ben naar een stukje hemel op aarde geweest, Raja Ampat, heb een baantje als zomerschool lerares gehad en ben ook nog eens wezen surfen op Bali! (Gelukkig is het bij mij beter afgelopen dan bij Gigi Ravelli van GTST, Gigi Ravelli in ziekenhuis op Bali) In ieder geval is elk moment van mijn reis afgelopen zomer veilig opgeborgen in mijn hart waar ik de herinnering altijd terug kan halen. Nu wil ik graag terugkijken en jullie een beetje met me meenemen door een aantal foto’s van mijn reis up te loaden… 🙂 


Laten we dit jaar mooie nieuwe epische herinneringen maken! xoxo
