Commercial break

Sometimes I see a commercial on TV and I just have to know what the music is called.
Despite smart apps like Shazam or Soundhound, I'm usually unable to find them, because companies have a tendancy to let some annoying woman yell their slogan right through the middle of the song. Grrr.

Nevertheless, I was able to track some of the songs down, and I've grown rather fond of them.
Most of the commercials are Dutch, so you might not know what this is about, but that doesn't make the music any less beautiful.

Yarden - José González - Hints

Studying in Enschede - Erik Satie - Gnossienne no. 1

Nikon - Radical Face - Welcome home

Ford Mondeo - Soap&Skin - Mr. Gaunt pt. 1000

Have you got any commercials that you only watch for the music?

Diamond in my heart

This is the ring I've got from my boyfriend. It was a birthday-present and I am totally in love with it. It is like a knot, and it has got no beginning and no end. Just like our love. In the middle of the heart, there is a little diamond. He told me that in his heart there is a little diamond for me.

Did you ever had such a sweet present from a friend or from your boyfriend? Tell me, I am curious.

Frost on the window

The last night it was so cold, it was minus 9! But when I woke up, the sun was shining and I saw those beautiful ice crystals on the window. Lovely

Elena Kalis

You might know her: Elena Kalis. She is the brain of these wonderful, underwater pictures. 
In her garden she has got a swimming pool, and that is where she takes her pictures, I'd heard...
This one reminds me of a cute jellyfish!

And this one makes me laugh!

My new...

Two weeks ago it was my Birthday, and this is the present I've got from my parents. A lovely, blue Panasonic Lumix camera. Because I am going to Sweden in August for one year, my parents thought that I might need a good camera to make some lovely pictures. And my Lumix makes lovely pictures!

He was also in other colours, but I love this blue. It is such a bright color :)

What is your favorite camera? Tell me!

My new...

... VANS!
I just adore them. A few days ago I was just walking around in the city with my boyfriend when we saw a shop with a lot of salestuff. We went in and I saw these darlings.

Today, I made some delicious muffins. It was so simple tot make them, all because of Home Made. I just had to add some water.
They are a present for my friends, because it is my B-day tomorrow! Lets hope they enjoy it as much as I did.
