Paint With Me: Watercolour Sea Animals

I love pinning drawings and paintings on Pinterest, especially watercolour paintings! My 'Drawings and Art' board is by far my biggest board on Pinterest. After pinning several watercolour paintings of sea animals, I thought, why not try to paint some myself? And then I thought, why not share it on my blog as well! So I hope you're ready to paint some watercolour sea animals with me today! :) Ready? Let's paint!

My Favourite Online Resources for Design Inspiration

As a Communication and Multimedia Design student, finding new inspiration and keeping up with design trends is also a big part of what I'm doing. I have talked about finding inspiration offline before, but today I want to talk about online inspiration! The internet is full with resources for finding (design) inspiration. I think we all know the most known ones like Instagram, Tumblr, Bloglovin and Pinterest but I'm not going to talk about those today, even though I check those regularly too. Today I want to share 3 of my favourite online resources for design inspiration that you may not know already! These 3 websites focus on high quality and professional designs and are perfect for all kinds of design inspiration.

Seven things I loved in January

Welcome to another 'seven things I loved in...' post, a blog series in which I share seven things that I loved over the past month! Not just products, but also events and other random things that I enjoyed.
The first month of this year has been really great! I've finished my project for University, watched some great series, and had more time to exercise! But the highlight of January was definitely assisting the designer Happy Andrada during the Fashion Week in Amsterdam! I'll tell you all about those things and more in this post, so keep on reading! ;)

How to Maintain a Long Distance Friendship

When I moved to London for my internship about a year ago, one of my biggest fears was that my friends would forget about me, or that I would lose friends. Being far away from my friends was something new for me, something scary, something I've never dealt with before. During that time I learned that there are ways to maintain a long distance friendship. I also made new friends in London, and unfortunately I now live miles away from them but the things that I've learned during my time in London really helps me to maintain those friendships as well. Maintaining a long distance friendship can be hard, and not all friendships are strong enough to survive when you're miles apart, but there are definitely ways to increase the chance of maintaining a long distance friendship.
