Cinema Club // December 2017

When it’s freezing cold outside, what better way to spend your time than to bundle up in those warm, comfortable cinema seats? Exactly, to bundle up on those warm comfortable cinema seats with a huge bucket of popcorn in one hand and a refreshing Coke in the other. In this month’s Cinema Club there’s two…

My Instagram 2017 Best Nine

Ah, December… this month is great for a lot of things, like an abundance of snacks, burning scented candles 24/7, playing Christmas music on repeat, making gift guides and listing round-ups of the past year in music, films, books, moments and Instagram posts.  Much like the Spotify Wrapped feature, Instagram Best Nine rounds up your most…

My 2017 Spotify Wrapped

Music is an important part of my life. Even though I have absolutely no musical talent, I am a very frequent listener, enjoyer and reviewer of music. I’m always playing music when I’m at home and when I’m commuting towards my university. My earbuds are practically permanently attached to my iPhone and it gives me…

What To Wear // Winter 2017

With the arrival of every new season comes my traditional browse through Pinterest looking for the hottest trends and the coolest inspiration. Today I listed 10 fashion trends for this Winter, from faux fur coats to straight leg denim.  // Corduroy I’m a big fan of everything corduroy – and who wouldn’t? It’s super soft,…

My Christmas Playlist

Pfft… 24 articles in a month, that’s a lot, eh? It definitely requires some serious planning and a lot of time writing, but this blog wouldn’t be called Almost Famous Writer if it wasn’t rooted in a deep love for writing. And besides snacks, I always find music to be the best motivational help when writing. …

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…

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…
