Hello November!

Every time a new month rolls around and I sit down to write these updates, I feel like so much has happened and I have so much to tell. October was a month of transition, not just in the seasonal sense, but also in my life, with my new internship, my pre-master, my MA thesis…

An ode to Gilmore Girls

Probably everyone who knows me, knows I love the TV show Gilmore Girls with all of my heart, body and soul. For years I have followed the story of young and single mother Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her shy, bookwormish daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel). The two are best friends, sharing everything from blowdryers, pop tarts and…

Hello October!

I used to think I was a summer girl through and through. But now that the season has changed, the days have become shorter and the temperatures have dropped, I find myself loving Autumn. Hello cinnamon-scented candles, hello fluffy blankets, hello Lord of the Rings marathons on the couch! And hello lil’ monthly update on Almost Famous…

Hello September!

The first of September does kind of feel like the first of January, doesn’t it? It’s a fresh start,  a new beginning and an opportunity to completely refresh. Perhaps I even like the first of September more, because it means Autumn is almost upon us (hello fluffy blankets, chai tea lattes and cinnamon-scented candles) and…

Hello 2018! // Editorial

With the end of one year and the arrival of a new one, usually comes a time of reflection. Looking back at 2017, I feel like it has just passed me by. I originally wanted to write a 17 highlights of 2017 post, but before I knew it, 2018 had arrived already and it just…

My 5 Favourite Blogs

It will come as no surprise that I love to read blogs. After all, one of the reasons why I started Almost Famous Writer was because I love to read blogs (that and boredom and a need to dump my creativity and my love for pink somewhere). It’s hard to pinpoint where this love started; I…

Meet Ziggy!

A couple of months ago we decided we wanted to adopt a cat. We both missed having a pet in the house and we really wanted to adopt a cat, to give one a good home. When I was growing up, there was always a dog around and although I definitely want to get a…

Hello December! // Editorial

Hello everyone! Welcome to the new and improved Almost Famous Writer! While I’m writing this, I really do feel like this is the beginning of something new and fresh and exciting. Even though I’ve been writing and publishing articles on Almost Famous Writer for a few years now, only a couple of weeks ago I…

My 5 Favourite Podcasts

Every once in a while I stumble upon a new obsession. In the past, these included endless re-runs of┬áRiverdale, crocheting Christmas present all day every day, or listening to the latest Oscar & The Wolf album on repeat. My current obsession, however, is something I’ve discovered only recently and haven’t been able to let go:…

Hello September! // Editorial

Hello… it’s me! I was wondering if after all these weeks you’d like to read what I’ve been up to over the Summer – because, let’s be honest, the past couple of weeks (months?!) have been full of radio-silence. I feel like so much has happened, and so much is currently happening, since I’ve last…
