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:…

Cinema Club // October 2017

We’re already halfway through October, which means it’s time for another fall-themed Cinema Club. The last few weeks I visited the Camera Japan festival, watched a much talked about Netflix documentary and went to see one of the most beautiful films of the year. // Neko Atsume House Based on the popular smartphone game, Japanse…

The Capsule Wardrobe Revisited

With the arrival of a new season usually came a new capsule wardrobe for me. For the past couple of seasons, I really stuck to the original capsule wardrobe idea of a certain amount of pieces divided into different subsections. As super academically this may sound, it was actually very easy and also very enjoyable…

Cinema Club // September 2017

During the past couple of weeks I did something I never thought I would do: I went to see a horror movie and I actually┬áreally liked it. I also revived my love for costume dramas, travelled to outer space and laughed at British film actors pronouncing Dutch names in this month’s Cinema Club. // Valerian…

What To Wear // Autumn 2017

I used to think I was a Summer girl through and through, but with the imminent arrival of Autumn and all the beautiful things that come with it (cosy sweaters, scented candles, hot chocolates), I can’t deny this upcoming season holds a special place in my heart. Transitioning from Summer into Autumn can be a…

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…

Cinema Club // August 2017

These couple of weeks are full of trips for me, and for some not quite inexplicable reason, trips are always filled with trips to the cinema. This month’s cinema club includes the best action-packed blockbuster of this Summer, “Atomic Blonde” (2017), an informative and heartwarming documentary about cats, “Kedi” (2016), and Christopher Nolan’s new masterpiece…

Moving Masters #3 // Decisions, decisions…

One of the most important yet scary parts of getting a new apartment and moving house would be the part where you have to make some pretty serious decisions. Either you have to make them on your own, which requires quite some independence and confidence, or you have to make decisions together with other people,…

Music Menu // July 2017

Settling into a new house and a new city can be quite a challenge – cleaning up those last boxes with stuff, making sure the house is ready before your grandparents come to visit, then keeping the house clean, et cetera. But with your favorite music playing in the background, it suddenly becomes so much…
