Lanvin, what were you thinking? Or using?

Tuesday started as an ordinary school day, but then Astrid suggested to grab a cup of coffee in 'Cafénation', a wonderful coffee bar with all kinds of crazy sorts of chocolate milk. I took a cappuccino, a graceful classic, and Astrid took a cup of hot milk with sixteen Maltesers, an outgoing newcomer. It took us a while to get a seat in the bar but once we let our bottoms rest on a cushion, we were delighted.
After that, we went to Men at work to get some black pumps for me to work in. I already had one pair, i'm a girl duh, but they weren't suitable for the job. So I got me a pair of I-don't-ever-wan't-to-take-these-of-pumps and walked out with the biggest smile. Astrid had to wait for her bus so we decided to take a look in H&M. We wanted to check out the collection of the great and famous Lanvin. I'll tell you what followed; one of the biggest shocks of my life. Right next to finding out Santa isn't real. Oops, maybe this is a delicate topic this time of a year. I'm sorry five year old, you had to find out sooner or later.. But back to Lanvin, we just walked through the racks of clothing and we couldn't do anything but laugh. It was absurd! Coral red tutu's, dresses with numberous flower prints, we just stared at each other and through telepathy we said 'OMG'. We laughed all the way to Roosevelt place and took a bus home. And on the bus we kept laughing, it's something we can't not do.

So you see, ordinary days can end in hilarious moments. So open up to opportunities and live your day to the fullest!

Lots of love,Tascha ♥

city life

My morning wasn't like most mornings; I was in a good mood. I woke up a little to early, made my assignment for communication, had a relaxed breakfast and took a long shower. This day couldn't go wrong.
Once I got at school I got a little moodier. I had an appointment with my teacher to go through my assignment and she wasn't there. I sent her an e-mail at one of the computers in our fancy library and she replied it was my fault. No new appointment, no answer about my task I sent together with the e-mail.
But I got over it after some shopping. The bureau I'm registered in to do some promo work asked me for a job on Saturday and I needed some black dressy pants for it. So mommy gave me her credit card - I wish it could be that easy everytime - and I went to the Meir. For all you foreigners(people who live outside Antwerp count to): this is the main shopping street of Antwerp. Now, you must know that finding pants for a girl that's 1m78 tall is like discovering money on the street. It rarely happens and you have to be very lucky.
Well, today I was lucky for once. I tried on one pair in Zara: to tight and to short - go figure. I set foot in Mango and I got a hold on two pairs. The first one had a waist so high it almost tickled my arm pits, but the second pair was perfect. Halleluja, second store and third pair, and I found a pair of beautiful, cheap, fitting pants!
Walking down the Meir, shopping bag in one hand, cappucino in the other, I was enjoying my city life. But then, the Terror Of Every Big City came flying over: PIGEONS. They terrify me with their flapping wings and their ability to poop while flying. To me, a pigeon soaring in the sky is like a bomber hanging above the city. There is one way in which I love pigeons; soup.
When I was back at school, I got a call from the bureau: I didn't have to work on Saturday anymore. Ok, thanks for the pants mom..

But in the end it was a good day, I got a lot of school work done and I did some shopping. No complaints necessary. So with this joyful thought, I'm closing my eyes and I hope to maybe wake up to an even better day tomorrow.

Type to you soon,
Lots of love,Tascha ♥

amazing weekends.

My last two weekends were amazing! The fifth of november, Friday, I went to the city with my three best friends. We had a drink in De Muze and after Emma and Margaux left, me and Moriah got into a photo booth and took some pictures. It's hilarious to crawl into that tiny box with the curtain, make the most crazy faces and get your photo instantly. The results are always so funny! After that, I went home to get some sleep and around six in the morning my boyfriend joined me, after going out with his friends.
I love being able to do my own thing and cuddling my boyfriend afterwards. It's not because you are in a relationship that you have to do everything together, right? Older people don't always quite get that, it's weird. It's not like we're married, and even if we were, you've got the right to do your own thing.
Saturday, we went to a party of the soccer team of a friend and later on, we continued the party in Local. At least, that was our intention. Once we got there, I took one sip of a mojito and my blood pressure just collapsed. We took a cab home - waaaay to early - at 4 am.
Monday and Tuesday, school happened. Wednesday was the birthday party of a friend from school. Me and Astrid took crazy pictures, giving our best looks with all the attitude in the world. Just for fun ofcourse, I'm a shy girl.. I spent the night at Astrids and we slept long and sound. We also took some pictures with Astrids webcam and a funny application on facebook, called lolcam

Thursday evening I had a dispute with my best friend and it kept running through my mind all night, even while I was having fun at Local with my boyfriend and some friends. The day after that we all met at the appartment of Kenny, my best friends boyfriend. It was a fun evening, we all watched Kick-ass, a humorous film about a nerd that wants to become a superhero. I worked things out with Moriah and I spent the night there because we had an early meeting the next morning.
Emma and Margaux waited for us in "'t Suut Bekske" at 11 am. It was delicious and we laughed so much. Emma even had tears rolling down her cheeks at one moment! Later on, we watched 'Bring it On' and at night, me and Moriah built a party at Local with our boyfriends and friends. Sunday was a lazy day, as it's supposed to be.

Now I have to get back to whole school weeks involving a lot of work and getting up early. But maybe it isn't such a bad thing to get back to a normal rhythm, I'm having stomach-aches. Chi-ching for the doctor, bad for my school work.

Type to you soon!

Lots of love,Tascha ♥

4 november 2010


I know, it's been a while. I didn't have any inspiration about what to write and the truth is I still don't. But I thought, I'll just type whatever I'm thinking, it's better than abandoning my blog. So, please, don't get disturbed if this little text doesn't have any regularity..

A few days ago, I was flipping through the pages of my diary and I read something I wrote the third of August. I was describing my difficulties concerning love, actually my inability to let myself fall in love, and I described the perfect man who could maybe change this. I wrote; 'Think: sensitive but not corny, secure but no ego tripper, bad boy but no convict boy, 1 meter 90.' I managed to describe my boyfriend before I even fell in love with him. I already knew him in August, but I still thought that me having a serious relationship was going to take a lot more time. I guess that's what they call your subconsciousness.

About that boyfriend, we're still very happy. We have our differences but that's the amazing part; when we're irritated, we talk to each other and maybe have a little fight about it, but in the end it only makes us stronger as a couple. Communication, communication..

That brings me to school. I'm studying communication and I love it! There are the things I love because I'm a college student now, such as the possibility to skip classes (I try to go to every class but it's so tempting), the hours and most of all the freedom. If you've been to a Jesuit high school, you know what I'm talking about. Besides the preceding things, I also love the courses. I realise that I've chosen the right study all the time. Let's hope I rock the exams!

And now a more bimbo topic: I want to go shopping! I went to the city with my best friend today - it had been a long time- and I rediscovered heaven in the appearance of the shopping street. I wanted to buy coats, boots, tops, vests, fragrances, bras, etc. It's been ages since I went shopping so I've been nagging to my mother since I got home. I hope it's been effective. For me ofcourse, not so much for her wallet.

Talking about wallets, I'm so broke! I spend all my money for this month in 10 days. Luckily I got some extra money from my mother so I could go to Kokorico, a club I had never been before. It was amazing! I was in a state of absolute glory; watching over the club, enjoying the music, glancing at my boyfriend and having fun with my friends. I just couldn't wipe that stupid smile of my face. And when I got home and saw the gift he left on my bed it got even worse. He gave me a bottle of perfume, the sneaky sweetheart!
As a matter of fact, I had a lot of those extreme happy moments over the last few weeks. I'm just so fortunated!!

I'm going to join my mother in the living room now, to make her happy to.

I hope you all are as happy as me,
Lots of love,Tascha ♥

Baby, baby keep me happy.
