A few weeks ago I went to Madrid with school for 5 days and I’ve fallen in love with the city, with its fascinating history, friendly people, delicious food, and beautiful streets. To never forget this fantastic holiday I made a short travel video which gives a quick impression of how beautiful Madrid is. Continue reading “Madrid | A travel video & some tips”
I don’t think it is a secret that I’m concerned about animal rights and especially animal testing, I’ve even written an article about a petition from the Body Shop, which you can read here. It’s a subject that, in my opinion, isn’t discussed enough and I think not enough people are boycotting brands that test on animals. However, there are many reasons for anyone to go cruelty-free that I wanted to discuss in this article and maybe, just maybe, I can win you over :).

Inspired by the book ‘everything, everything’ by Nicola Yoon I write spoiler reviews about books I read. In ‘everything, everything’ the protagonist, Madeline Witthier, has a blog that’s called ‘life is short – spoiler reviews by Madeline’. I loved this idea and wanted to use it on my own blog. Most people probably don’t want to read them because they are planning to read the books I write my reviews about in the future but I love writing them and for the people who aren’t interested in reading the book or for people who have read the book already, they are fun to read. In my spoiler reviews, I’ll also include some other basic information about the book, a short summary, my opinion and whether I would recommend it or not.

I love music and I listen to it very often, who doesn’t? While doing my homework, cleaning my room, showering, riding my bike to school, working out, chilling and of course writing on my blog, I always listen to my favorite songs. My taste in music is very fluid though. I like almost every genre, from rap to classical music, from r&b to country, from rock to jazz and from alternative to pop. The only kind of music I don’t really like to listen to is heavy metal but even that can be fun sometimes.

One thing I’m very passionate about is animal testing, and especially the lack of concern I see around me about that subject. It’s not that people don’t care about these animals and that they don’t find it disgusting and wrong to test cosmetic products on them but they just don’t know enough about it. It is an invisible issue. What you don’t see isn’t there, right?
