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 really 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…

Cinema Club // July 2017

With moving to a new city comes a period of discovery: how to get to the supermarket, how to work public transport without ending up on the other side of town, where to eat the best cake and, perhaps most importantly, where to go the cinema. Luckily for me, Rotterdam has multiple cinemas scattered all…

The Honest Hour #11 // Moving Out

Yesterday I moved out of my student room. Even though we had already moved most of my stuff and I had already moved in our new place in Rotterdam, yesterday was the day I really moved out of my student room. Already as I was walking up to the flat from the parking lot, I saw…

Concert at SEA 2017 – Friday // Festival Review

Radio Eliza combines modern beats with old-fashioned guitar noise On the Umoja stage, the “discovery place” of Concert at SEA, is Radio Eliza playing in the warm sunshine. Just before the start of the concert, a couple of young fans are already loyally waiting, bright yellow CAS caps on their heads and smartphones camera-ready in…
