Here's a list of 10 random favorite things of mine.
In a previous post, you could read all about my all time favorite films, but if I have to pick one, it would be Breakfast At Tiffany's. I just could watch this movie over and over again and never get bored. I love Audrey Hepburn, her acting skills, the story line, the way it's all being filmed, the locations, even all the lines that are being said. Watching Breakfast At Tiffany's always gives me such a good feeling!
Book: Wuthering Heights, and the Harry Potter series
I could go on and on about why I love Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë so much, but I will not now, and I may another day in another post. All I say for now is that I have never in my life yet encounter anything close to Wuthering Heights. It is such an unique book, so beautifully written, so cleverly invented. I have read it many times and I will many times more, as I can't get enough of it!
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling must be mentioned here as well. I consider these books as the best of our time, and these are probably the only books that I am so incredibly fond of that were not written two centuries ago.
Magazine: L'Officiel NL
L'Officiel NL is a fashion magazine, though much different from magazines like Vogue and ELLE. In short, what I like about L'Officiel NL is their focus on fashion, design, art and history, especially fashion history, and people who are inspiring or successful, but who are not particular famous, like creative people as artists and designers. I read every single new edition of L'Officiel NL, and it has failed to disappoint me so far.
I don't know what's up with the color purple, but I find it the most beautiful one in the world. Really can't explain why though, but I guess colors are not supposed to be explained much.
High school class: History
History was by far my favorite class in high school, and I considered going for a History major in college as well, though job prospects for such a major are not very favorable. But it is probably still the field that interests me the most. There isn't really an aspect of history that I don't like, as I like to learn about Medieval ages just as much as about the 19th/20th century and everything else.
Fashion item: Heels
I'm obsessed with shoes, and especially, or actually exclusively, with heels. I love walking in them, and I believe epic heels can make any look more interesting. Not to mention that heels make my tiny short legs look a lot taller!
Fashion designer: Gucci
For past season, Gucci's collections by Alessandro Michele have been one of my favorites. For Fall 2016, Gucci was my top favorite, as you can read about in this post.
I enjoy watching musicals, and I especially love Les Misérables. Maybe that's because I also love the book by Victor Hugo and the film immensely.
'Soldaat van Oranje' is a Dutch musical that I've seen twice, and it's probably the most epic one I've ever seen, because the stage is actually circle-shaped, so you (sitting in the middle of this circle) are being turned around as sets and scenes change. Even if you're not so much into musicals, you'll love this one. Decors are beautiful, actors great, songs amazing, and lines are funny. Besides, the story line is based on a true story that took place in The Netherlands during World War II, so it is pretty interesting as well!
Drink: Coca Cola
I am not very fond of many types of drinks, sodas or juices, but I LOVE Coca Cola. I could drink it almost any time!
Even though I'm having bad allergies during Spring season, I love the weather that is most likely to appear in Spring months. But I am equally happy with any weather that is not rainy or too windy in any season, and I love the sky being sunny and bright.
