Matching Colours

I came back from work an hour ago, and before I went in I sat a while in the sun outside. And I came to the conclusion that my shoes and my nails had the same colour! Well, I guess that this colour is just an H&M colour. The shoes and the nail polish (No Mambo Jambo) are from H&M.
See, they are matching! Sitting outside, enjoying the sun.

The print on my summercoat. I bought this coat last year in a shop for ladies older than 50, but I like the coat a lot! It is a trenchcoat and the print is very graphic. Me like!

I am free!

Hi! Here I am again! There was a little blogstop on this blog, but I am back! Yesterday I finally finished my exams, and I am so happy! It just felt so good to put the last words on the paper and to walk out of the school! And now, it wil be only happiness for me :)

Yesterday we had a final-exams-party for everyone who had done his exams. It was so cool. We first went with a sightseeingboat to a village nearby and there was a big party. It was so cool. And we got back home with an old American Schoolbus :)

And when I finally went to bed I saw that it was already getting lighter at the horizon...
A wonderful day

Country Style

Sometimes I am dreaming of my own little house, and of how I would design it. Here are my dreams for the bedroom. Those beds give me the feeling that I am a princes. Wish I could sleep in it!

Tea time!

I love to drink a cup of tea. And every time I am in a store I am looking for lovely teacups. On WeHeartIt.com are a lot of teacups, which I really love. Here are my favourites, including my own 'Swanhilde'-cup :)

DIY: teacup pincushion

A long time ago, somewhere in February I found a DIY on Sophie her blog. A week ago I found the perfect cup and saucer so I decided to make it.
Here is the result: my own teacup pincushion!

Sweet little note

This morning I came down the stairs and I saw a little note at the sideboard. So nice. It is in Frisian, but here is the translation.
Good luck Swaen! You can do it!  Kiss from dad, mum and your sister

Off to my first exam: Dutch. I'll tell you how it was!

Cameo earrings

Yesterday I got a bit too late birthday present (my birthday was in February)  from a friend. She gave me little cameo earrings. I really like them!

My wedding looks

Here I've got some pictures of my clothes I wore at the wedding yesterday. I really liked it. The party was also great! There was a band playing covers and there were a lot of people. 
Here you see how my hair looked.

And my outfit, this is what I wore:
Jacket H&M Conscious Collection
Dress Zidane
Jeans Vila
Shoes Bought somewhere in Luxembourg 

This evening I've got my dance performance, wish me luck! 

Hema Bronzing Highlighter

Yesterday I bought a lovely bronzer. I'd heard so many good things about them that I decided to buy one myself. Here is a little review!

Hema Bronzing Highlighter
Packaging - Simple but clear.
Colour - Cheerful, the color of the bronzer are pretty clear.
Odor - None
Impact - The bronzer leaves a nice, even layer on my face with little sparkles in it.

I really like this bronzer, it gives me a natural, healthy look. It is very easy to apply, I like it!
I give this bronzer an 8 out of 10!

Nail of the day

I chose dark pink and orange for my nails. The pink I did yesterday and today I pimped it up with orange.
I really like the sparkling in the orang nail polish. The pink one is very easy to apply, but it takes a while before it is dry.

This evening I have got a general for my dance show tomorrow. And after that I have got a wedding party. An uncle of my boyfriend was marrying yesterday, and today they have a big party. Looking forward to it! I'll show you what I wore!

Love, Swaen ♥

Giant radishes

My mother walked in, something like 10 minutes ago, with a giant bunch of radishes! She got them from our garden, but she'd kind of forgotten them. Normally the radishes are very small, but this ones: wauw! Now I wonder how they taste, you want one?

Love, Swaen

A little girl

This evening I was working in the flower-shop. There walked a little girl through the shop, she wore a blue dress, a striped legging, pink flip flops and she was walking very quietly and carefully. She didn't knew I'd seen her and she went on her knees by the bouquet flowers. She smelled the roses and stroked the petals of the gerbera very carefully. It was such a beautiful view, a little girl between the flowers.
Then, she saw me and smiled at me. I smiled back and gave her a pink gerbera. When she was looking at it her eyes looked so happy. She asked: 'Is this a real one?' 'Yes', I said. The little girl said that she would take care of it and would look after him every day.
But unfortunately a customer came and I lost her out of sight. When the customer had paid and was gone, I'd looked at the place the girl stood earlier. But she was gone, just as silent as she came

The British photographer Benjamin Lennox is working a lot with lights and movements. I really like his style. What do you think of it?

From xxMieyou to Swaen

As you might have noticed I changed my blogname into Swaen. I had xxMieyou for such a long time that it kind of bored me. My webadress will be the same (www.xxmieyou.blogspot.com) because Blogger says I cannot have a blogadress shorter than 6 characters. And Swaen has got 5...

I also said goodbye to Laura. She will no longer post on Swaen. I understand that she is quitting. Exams and all that sort of stuff take lots of time.

The first time it will be a lot more quiet here, because of the final exams starting in one week! I am not really looking forward to it, but I have to. And after two weeks of exams it will be holiday for me! Thinking of it makes me happy already!

But keep looking here, I might find some time to make a post!

Love, Swaen
