quick update

Hello there darlings!<3
Again, welcome to some new followers! I really hope you'll like my blog. And thanks for the sweet comments on my previous posts! I'm glad most of you like my clothes and accesoires! It's always nice to get compliments ;)

I just arrived home from Disneyland Paris and I had so much fun! Disneyland is really one of my super favourite places in the world. You can act like a child and nobody will look at you like you're a total retard! OK, photos are for my next blog, I'm currently typing this in a rush as I'm cleaning my room. Tomorrow is my first day at school so I have to get more room at my desk. It's currently cluttered with all sorts of crap like papers and magazines. A fresh start, I'm going to uni! I'm so excited, I really hope I made the right study choice and the other students will like me! I'm going to study Graphic Arts/Commercial Arts. Sounds exciting, right?!

So just wait a little bit longer and my photos of Disneyland will be online! Probably this Saturday.

Thanks for reading, hope you have a nice day!

i am not afraid of storms for i am learning to sail my ship

Well, here I am with a quick outfit post. Tonight I'm having a birthday dinner with three friends, it will be calm and cosy, just the way I like it. I felt like wearing boots today, so I fitted my very old brown boots. They were bought when I was still heavier in weight and wider in silhouette so they're a bit too big. But I just took some knee socks and kind of stumped into the boots. I'm so happy they finally fit me like they're supposed to. I used to pull them down because I couldn't get them zipped up. All hail to weight loss! :)

Vest Primark; Top thrifted; Skirt H&M; Thights Primark; Boots I honestly can't remember Accesoires Accesorize and gifts from my bday

And tomorrow I'm leaving for Disneyland Paris for six days! We already packed two suitcases, oh holy. Oh and shit, I rediscovered my obsessive crush on Adrien Brody. I wouldn't call it obsessive though, just... passionate, maybe. I just like men that have something odd or wrong in their face. Odd and wrong to other people, because for me it's just sexy, obviously ;)

Anyway, hope you all have a nice week! And I do hope the weather will be good in Paris :/
Thanks for reading!

never seen the colors of your eyes

Nothing much to say today, I'm currently thinking about what to bring along to Disneyland Paris in four days (we're going for five days). I'm quite excited, as I'm still in my childhood (mentally) and I just love that you can behave like a child there and nobody thinks you're a complete retard.

Yesterday (or the day before, I forgot) my mum finished a pink shawl for me. It's so nice, it has little pink pearls in it, and I just love the color. It's also soft and has a special shape. I'm guessing this piece is going with me to Paris!

I'm loving this! It's also a good chance to show you my new necklace: the snake one. It reminds me a bit of Slytherin (in the Harry Potter series). I'm quite obsessed, I admit it ;) That's it for now, I don't have much to tell! Only that I'm having a birthday dinner on Saturday with friends. I'll probably bring along my camera as I love social photos (or what to call them).

Oh, and I had this dream last night, I dreamed of Adrien Brody! It was quite nice, as I do think he's very attractive... Yup, it was definitely a dream. If it comes true I wouldn't have any problems with it *sigh*.  
What did you dream about lately?

Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a nice day!
Oh, and it's the first day of school today (in Belgium), good luck everybody! And good luck to the other students too, that go back to school soon. I'm going to uni on 17th Sept, still have time to chill.

day 03: your parents

I'm really keeping up with this challenge, most of the time I start with day one and then I get tired of it and stop doing it. Well, cheers to me!

There's not much to say besides that my parents are very nice and kind of the best. My mum's a stay-at-home mum that works very hard and my dad's a non-stay-at-home father that works even harder. I really like doing stuff with my mum, we mostly go shopping or eating out, and it's always very cosy and funny. I also like being with my dad, I especially like going to the movies with him, yesterday we went to see The Expendables (which is awesome btw). I like that my parents and me have the same taste in music, movies and other random stuff. I mostly watch movies that other normal girls wouldn't really see, at those moments my dad steps in and watches it with me. I also got to know a lot of music bands and artists through my parents. Artists like Dire Straits, Nick Cave, Nat King Cole and other lovely artists who make/made real music.

Basically, I love my parents, period ;)

Thanks for reading, hope you  have a nice day! A non-challenge blog will be up soon. And welcome to my new followers!

day 02: your first love

I'm probably interpreting this the wrong way, but I'm a rebel. It's in my nature to be... special. My first love was Walt Disney. My parents bought me the Disney Classics when I was little, and I've learned that it was created from the hand and mind of Walt. Basically, he completed my childhood and made it rich (it's cheesy, but I'm in a cheesy mood).

He's still a bit of a love to me, he's still living through the Disney works (the real Disney works) and I still appreciate every single Mickey Mouse film. This man was truly a genius, a big one.

Thanks for reading!

day 01: introduce yourself

I'm barely posting here because 1) I'm lazy 2) I seem to forget I need to shoot my outfits 3) I'm more obsessed with Livejournal, Tumblr and Twitter and 4) uhmm ... yeah. So to have more activity on here, I'm doing the famously overdone 30 day challenge! Be prepared to read something daily of me, for 30 days long ;)

I will try to do this in an interesting way, because typing out myself is surprisingly boring.

My name is Sari ~ it's a South African name and it means flower (random, how fun). I live in Antwerp, Belgium but I want to live in London. My life basically revolves around: photography, fashion, illustration, making graphics with Photoshop, blogging, friends, pets, parents, traveling, studies (life's a struggle hihi), movies and many other things I might forget. I like walking barefoot in wet grass, watching clouds change shape, walking in the rain and rediscovering myself every day. I graduated with a diploma Fine Arts and I'm going to uni soon to study Graphic Arts - Commercial. I have a dream that I get to be a photographer for something like Vogue magazine. Other than that, just having a job later would be nice.

My favourite movie types are: historical, fantasy and Asian. My favourite movie of all time is Dragonheart, I'm also very in love with Red Cliff. My favourite book types are: fantasy, classic children's stories and classics. My favourite authors are Lewis Carroll, Beatrix Potter, JK Rowling, JRR Tolkien, the brothers Grimm and Oscar Wilde. In general I'm obsessive about the Harry Potter fandom and anything related to Disney (I go to Disneyland a lot with my mum♥ and I'm collecting the Disney Classics). I'm also interested in Greek mythology and Egyptian mythology, following that I like movies like The Mummy, Odyssee and Clash of the Titans. (and Hercules of Disney). Some of my favourite "celebrities" are: Marilyn Monroe, Colin Morgan, Sean Connery, Adrien Brody, Nicolas Cage, Gaspard Ulliel and Emma Watson (all of them because of: talent, looks and awesomeness).

My personality you say? I tend to be very childlike and I think some people want to grow up too fast. I'm also very helpful (I think I inheritated that from my dad, he, also, often helps people before helping himself). Many people say I'm nice, polite and funny. Thank you people, I guess it's true :) That's about it actually, if you want to know something, just ask! I'll be happy to answer.

Small off-topic: my shawl is finished! A picture with better quality coming soon (and one that's more interesting).

Thanks for reading, hope you all have a nice day/night!!

where the wild roses grow

Hey everybody! This probably won't be an interesting blog as this is just an outfit post. I haven't been very busy or anything, so not much has happened. My mum did had a surprise for me yesterday, we (as in my parents and myself) went to the mall of Liège (which is almost on the other side of our country...) to go to Primark. It was a bit disappointing, but not bad. I must say, it's very cheap which is always nice and their juwelry is pretty (pics coming soon). I also got two winter coats and boots from my mum aren't they deliciously gorgeous? They're all from New Look. I must say, New Look is close to beating H&M in my list of favourite stores.
And this is the outfit; I wore it on a day out with some friends.
Top H&M; Skirt H&M; Legging H&M; Shoes New Look; Bracelets thrifted; Necklaces Accesorize
(meet my doggy, Benny)

Oh, and my mum finished my shawl! I'm so happy with it, I'm in love with the whool and it's color.

Well, this turned out to be a blog after all (a long one), fancy that.
Hope you all have a nice day and thanks for reading, commenting and subscribing!
