I like this new promo of Coca-Cola.
I was having a bad day until I saw something that really made me smile.
It’s nice to have someone whom you can share your stories with, your laughter and tears. But it also takes a very special person to make you smile:
It doesn’t matter what you do or what you say to yourself, if you’re having a bad day, go and make yourself happy! :)
This is one of those days when I had a particular style on my mind and just tried it on to see how it will look on me.
This is the look I wanted to achieve.
Although it reminds me of Oppa Gangnam Style, I fell in love with the outfit. A lot of people think that they can’t wear Timberland anymore because the winter is over. But I always find a way to make things possible.
The moment I saw this at H&M, the first thing that came into my mind are the Timberlands. The shorts are to die for. They’re very comfortable.
From my previous post, you noticed that I wore this necklace as a bracelet. That’s the good think about that. You can choose how you’ll wear it.
If you have a look that you want to achieve, don’t be afraid to mix & match. Try something new and experiment different styles.
I went to Zara this afternoon with my two girlfriends and we really think that this T-shirt was made for us.
We didn’t buy this because we know we don’t need a T-shirt to change our lives.
If you’re recovering from a break up or if you’re experiencing a big problem, remember that no one is going to help you but your self. People will try to cheer you up but no advice is going to help.
ONLY YOU can change your life because change comes from within.
Be positive. Be happy. Be awesome.
Don’t just thank God for Friday. Thank God for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Thank God everyday.
It was a stressful week yet it turned out to be a success.
I won’t deny that exactly a year ago was the worst day of my life. I’ve never imagined that the worst day of my life will actually become the best. In all honesty, I’ve never felt this good.
THANK GOD I’M FIERCE!
I’ve said it already and I’ll say once more, I’m claiming that this is going to be the best year of my life!
Have a nice weekend everyone!
Breakfast at The Euromast
Photo taken by mom
I didn’t want to crop the picture but my sister didn’t want to show her face. So the Iphone app did its magic.
Last month was the official start of spring. But this is the first time that the temperature went above 20.
Since spring is about growth and renewal, I think it’s about time to wear prints and colors again. This day is going to be my aztec kind of day.
Enough with the cold weather, enough with the boring dark colors.
Be awesome or be boring.
Hortus botanicus Leiden
A green treasure hidden in the historical centre of Leiden. Founded in 1590, this is the oldest botanical garden in the Netherlands and one of the oldest in the world.
The Hortus botanicus Leiden is the oldest botanical garden in the Netherlands and located in the historical centre of Leiden. Behind the academy building of the Leiden University you will discover a green oasis with a large collection of plants native to South-east and East Asia, Southern Europe and South Africa. The Hortus is a haven within the city centre, a historical monument and a meeting place full of character. People come here to relax, enjoy the seasons or to learn more about the diversity of the plant kingdom.
In 1590 the Hortus was founded by the University of Leiden. In 1594 Carolus Clusius (1526-1609) turned it into a medicinal herb garden. But Clusius introduced the tulip and many other plants like tobacco and potato to the Hortus. These flowers and plants became known throughout Western Europe.
A living museum
There are more than ten thousand botanical species and dozens of bird species growing and living in the Hortus. For more than four centuries and to this day plants from all corners of the world are collected and cultivated in the garden and greenhouses for research, education and exhibition purposes.
The current Front Garden is the oldest part of the Hortus. It was founded in 1590 and houses the Clusius garden which is a reconstruction of the garden of 1594. Here you will also find the Winter Garden which has a large collection of Cycades and carnivorous plants. The Hortus also has a monumental Orangery from 1744 and extensive tropical greenhouses, many old trees, a beautiful Fern Garden, Rosarium, Japanese Garden, Herb Garden, Nut Field and System Garden. Many famous international scientists such as Clusius, Boerhaave, Linnaeus and Einstein were connected to the Hortus botanicus in Leiden. In the 19th century the German physician Philipp Franz von Siebold (1796-1866) brought hundreds of plant species with him from Japan to the Netherlands and 15 of these original introductions can still be found in the Hortus today.
Research and education
The Hortus botanicus Leiden has always been a garden where students come to study plants. Scientists of the Hortus are cooperating with NCB Naturalis (Netherlands Centre for Biodiversity Naturalis) to write research on plant species. The Hortus also plays an important role in the cultivation and preservation of endangered species. Dutch and foreign botanical gardens are cooperating and exchanging material in order to preserve these threatened species.
