A quick sketch of some of my favourite things right now. I’m trying to shop less but better. So less impulse buys and more things that I can enjoy for a long time. I’m also looking forward to 2 more Ben Howard concerts. Money spend on experiences is always money well spend, especially if it’s Ben Howard (in my opinion anyway!). While working from home I like to listen to podcasts to keep me company and informed. I recently discovered By the book and I’ve been binge-listening ever since.
PS. Nothing on here is sponsored, just things that I really like.
Last week I visited Portugal for the first time. While I was there I saw Ben Howard in concert in Lisbon (the first concert of his new tour!) Needless to say I had a wonderful time!
My travel read was Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. Moving and very funny!
“You must always know what it is that you want.” Some wise words from The Alchemist. So here is my wish-list for spring 😉
(PS. the pizza tote bag is from Illustrated Identity on Etsy.)
I’m trying to fight off a cold by drinking lots of fresh mint and ginger tea with honey. Also, I’m eating a lot of chocolate, because that always helps as well 😉 I’m wearing my first ever Primark item (I’m not proud). I had to layer it with warm tights and a big cardigan, to stay warm enough for the Dutch summer weather. The best news is that I managed to get tickets to see Ben Howard in November, YAY!!
What a special year 2013 has been for me. After a not so great start, things started to fall together in unexpected and great ways as the year went on. And throughout the whole year I’ve received so much love and appreciation about my work, from people all over the world. So a big THANK YOU for all the liking, following, commenting and sharing, I really appreciate it very much!
