a Day in the Garden

Yesterday I went to my parents home. I don't really go there often, I see my family at birthdays and stuff and they come to me sometimes. But this means I don't really get to see my pets there so often.. So yesterday I took the opportunity to make some pictures of them! (Also to try out my new camera! the Sony HX50)

We have two cats, Flame (mine) and Razor (my brother's cat). And then we have a dog, a German Pointer, called Astor.
My cat is the quiet type. She loves to just lay in the sun and is home most of the time. Razor on the other hand likes to roam around the neighbourhood. Since we live on the countryside there's enough for him to do. But this also means he has already quite some scars from fighting the other cats for territories (I guess). Yesterday his front paw was hurting :( but after he had dinner he was gone already to find more adventures haha.
The dog is getting old, but he stills love to play with his ball and always wants our attention.

So, here are some of the photos I took:

Flame, my fluffy cat

Razor aka the adventurous tiger

Astor (too bad I didn't focus on him, but it still looks nice)

The sun is setting after a nice day

It was really nice to see my pets again. And my family of course. I should visit there more often, it's quite peaceful on the countryside compared to the small city of Delft where I live now.

Have a nice week!

Growing Tassel House

So yes, I'm still alive..

Let me share with you a project I've recently been working on for an elective course I did. This course is called 'Beyond 3D'. The goal was to create one single image, an artist impression. You could use one of your own architectural projects or an existing one.
This is the end result of my project:

Want to know how I created this? Then continue reading please :)

5 random facts about me

Hello there. I wanted to make this blog a little bit more personal by sharing these 5 random facts about me. I hope you'll enjoy! :)

I actually live in a tiny blue apartment. It's a little studio in the 'outskirts' of Delft where I've painted the walls sky blue. I've been living here for about two years now and I share this place with my two fluffy gerbils.
(Blue is also my favourite colour!)

Which brings me to the second fact. I have two gerbils. These little desert rats always need to have a roommate to keep eachother company. Mine are black and white. The black one is called Yoru and the white one Tsuki. It means 'night' and 'moon' in Japanese. Doesn't it sound cute? They're both male and so cute together! They sleep together and wash eachother. It's adorable to watch ♥

The only sports I like are yoga, pilates and fighting sports like thai boxing. This year I did yoga at home and bikram yoga with Emilia!, I'm hoping on continuing with thaiboxing again next semester at the sporstcentre of my university.

My 'favourite' drink is water. Seriously, I drink so much of it everyday. If I go to someones place and they ask me what I want to drink, I would say water. When I'm working at home, there's always a can of water and a glass next to me. And I always have a bottle of water in my bag.

It has been a year and a half since I've been obsessing about everything with robots on it. (It used to be penguins) Last year I designed a robot ring and ever since I have been really drawn to anything with robots on it.. I even made a special pinterest board for it! There are so many cute items out there with robot print, but I would be broke if I bought them all.. So apart from my ring I only have this water bottle I bought at Søstrene Grene (always have it in my bag) and a robot dress from Zara.

So that's it!
I hope you enjoyed it and know me a little bit better now :)
and please tell me if you like to see more posts like this!

Have a great week!

Building spaghetti bridges

Over the past few weeks two friends and I have been quite obsessed by spaghetti. And glue. This was the third time in a row we were competing in the yearly spaghetti-bridge competition organized by our university.
Every year there are two challenges to compete in: the team-building challenge and the student-building challenge. We were competing for the third time in the last challenge. Here you need to build a bridge before the actual competition/testing day according to the released assignment. We also competed in the teambuilding challenge for the first time. This takes place on the day itself. You get 3 hours to build a (smaller) bridge.

Last week Wednesday was the big day. In the morning we brought our big bridge in and we build a smaller bridge for the teambuilding challenge. There was a nice spaghetti lunch (spaghetti-overload) and in the afternoon they would test all bridges from both challenges.
Before I share our experiences, let me reveal that we didn't win anything ;)

Fabric Market in Delft

Today was a beautiful sunny (and windy) day. The perfect day to visit the fabric market in Delft with a friend. This market is set up by the 'Stoffenbeurs'. Every season they visit different cities. If it's close by, I always enjoy going there. Since today they visited my hometown I had to stop by. It is so nice to see and touch all the different kinds of fabric and imagine what you would create with it..
I didn't allow myself to buy anything since I already have so many (sewing) projects waiting to be finished. Or to even start on.
We did hunt down the perfect shiny black fabric so my friend can make hooded capes for her society board. And it was only €2,- per meter! Perfect since she's only planning to use them once ;)

What's a market day without some lunch? Even though it was sunny we decided to go inside our trusty Bagels&Beans to have some bagels and an ice coffee/hot chocolate.

More photos after the break!
