Album review: Taylor Swift - Red

Music. My taste will go from Metallica, AC/DC and Muse to Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift. I like a lot of different genres but love to discover new bands and go to concert in small venues. 

I decided I'll share my opinion about Taylor Swift's new album Red. I've been listening to Speak Now and Fearless for about a hundred times and while I was a bit sceptic about this album, I was still very excited about Red. After hearing a few first songs, I lost hope as I had to get used to her new style a lot. The experimenting and change from her country style to more of the pop side. (which I definitely didn't like) 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' started to grow on me. And I liked 'Red'. But then 'I Knew You Were Trouble' released. The worst song so far in my opinion. It sounds like a dubstep song which was screwed up by some dj.

Time for a change

I don't need an very long blog to talk about this. I thought it was time for a change. A new layout, a fresh and blue-ish one. This color is one of my favorites and I'm pretty happy with it. Hope you all like the layout!

I'm also going to try to line up some posts for the weekend. Because I'll be going to London for a few days to visit my boyfriend and... A job interview.

(I already changed the layout a bit again as I wasn't completely happy about it)

I've got a little secret to tell

I've got a little confession to make. A guilty pleasure. A year ago, British X-Factor, I watched it every week, BBC ITV Player is one of the things which can be used if you're living in London. (as it's only for UK citizens) I was a big fan of Aiden and liked Cher Lloyd. And come on after a 5 day workweek I could use some brainless tv. But then there was this boy band, five guys who all auditioned on their own. But the judges made a band of them. You all know who I am talking about. One Direction. Almost every 14 year old girl is going crazy, they all love Liam... (I don't know what the other names of the guys are, Nial?) Well I wasn't a big fan of them. But I have to admit, now their music is catchy. When I was younger I've always listened to a lot of pop (Robbie Williams, Christina Aguilera, guilty!) and all though I'm more of punk/rock girl now.. I really like One Direction's new song. Jup. I admit it. It's catchy and able to bring back the summer. 

I'm not a fan, but yes this song is catchy and you'll sing it the entire day after hearing it. You're welcome!

The things I learned in the UK

Sometimes you say one of those things.. Which might sound really weird in English, but sounds very logical in Dutch.. Or maybe when you're in America. Well I'll explain some of those things to you now. The perks of being a Dutchy in the UK, or just forgetting an English word.

1. The difference between pants and trousers/jeans. 
Yes I made this mistake a few times. Pants in the UK are the word for underwear, all though in America pants are the same thing as trousers. Well don't say pants in the UK because people will think you mean your underwear, awkward. So me shouting I bought new pants, not a great idea.

2. Ace, another word for cool.
Ever heard of the word 'ace', well I hadn't, but it's basically a British word for cool. Ace right?

3. Forgetting the word for a grill? And calling it a 'rooster'. (which is the Dutch word)
It happened. Me calling a grill a 'rooster' was definitely hilarious. If you know what the English word rooster means.. It turned out to be a weird conversation.

4. The dutch word 'hoor', don't ever use it.
'Hoor' is an actual word in Dutch, but when you say it in the UK.. It might sound weird. It's like the word 'like', you say it to make a sentence stronger. Let's just say it sounds like one of those swear words in English, so be careful!

5. The word 'soccer'
Don't EVER use it. Soccer is for the Americans, in the UK it's just football.

6. Your, you're. 
YOU ARE and YOUR. Two different phrases, you won't hear it when you say it. But you will when you write it down.

7. Unfortunately.. Peanut butter.
This is something we definitely had to explain, as this is a Dutch phrase. Me, my friends and boyfried visited Rock Werchter and came up with 'unfortunately peanut butter' which is actually a Dutch saying. 'Helaas pindakaas', and as if that makes any sense (it doesn't) it rhymes. Which made it hilarious in English, and now we say it.. All the time. (It's a bit look 'to bad' in a funny way)

Will be continued..

DailyGrace is gonna teach you something..

One of my best friends and me have been imitating this girl for the last 2 weeks. So I thought I'd make a blog about it. DailyGrace is a Youtube vlogger and absolutely hilarious. You might either hate or love her, and in my case.. I love her!
So when you see two girls in Utrecht walking around shouting BYEEE, plinging (what Grace does in the beginning of every video) or saying it's sexy friday. It's probably me. Especially her reviews (check out the One Direction review) are amazing. If you have a free day? I'd suggest you watch some of her videos.

RingCon 2012

02 October 2012


Wow, I'm so sorry for not blogging for longer than a week! It's been absolutely hectic this week and I didn't have a tiny bit of time. As my boyfriend came over, school ate my time and work peeked in. There are a few things which happened.
One: I cut my hair. Which means one side is now shorter than the other.
Two: My boyfriend went back to London again. Sadface.
Three: I got a job interview for another London internship!
Four: Me, my parents, my sister and boyfriend booked a ski holiday for Christmas and I'll be spending NYE in London.
Five: RingCon is this weekend!

And the sixth one will be. Don't expect a blog post until next week, RingCon will suck up my entire weekend and as I'm absolutely excited. Blogging will not work out. I'll definitely post some pictures the week after and show you some of my work for school.
But for now, I need some sleep and continue my very busy life.
