Packing packing packing!! What’s in my bag?

Afbeelding

Tomorrow I am leaving for NYC!!!! Can’t even describe my excitement! I’m also getting a bit nervous, because it’s the first time I’m flying all by myself and obviously with the things that happened recently I am a bit more anxious about it than I would’ve been if that crash didn’t happen. I guess I just have to have faith and believe that something like that won’t happen to me and that I’ll be totally fine.

Now, I thought I would just do a quick “what’s in my bag” post before I leave, of course what you can see on this photo is not everything that’s in my bag, but I just took out a few random things that are quite important for me when I go on vacation.

First thing is of course my backpack, from Primark. I love this bag, it’s the best thing ever.
Second, my sunglasses. Because duh, everyone needs sunglasses.
Third are my iPhone earphones, still in their cute little box. The reason for that is that I only started using them yesterday. I’ve had my new phone for about 5 months and I had just continued to use my old ones and kind of forgot that I even had new ones! The difference in quality is HUGE though. Oh my god, I was so amazed when I first used them. I felt like I’d been deaf all along and heard real sound for the first time in my life… not even joking.
Fourth thing is… my camera! <3 It’s a Nikon D3100 and it’s my baby. I can’t wait to take beautiful photos of the city and I hope I have the chance to take some outfit photos too.. Of course I would need someone to help me with that though.
Fifth: A book! The Fault In Our Stars… I’m really looking forward to reading this and just chilling in the park or a nice coffee place and read a little. I still haven’t seen the movie either so I’m quite curious. I’ve heard really good things about it so yeah, can’t wait to start reading!
Sixth: This is just a little diary that I’m going to keep when I’m in New York. Just so I can write down my thoughts or where I want to go or all the things I’ve seen, stuff like that.
Seventh and last is my little purse that I thought would be really easy for traveling to keep all my important things in like my phone, wallet and passport. This way they’ll be safe and I don’t have to watch my back all the time :)

I hope you all enjoyed my post! If you want to follow me on my trip to New york, I will be posting lots of photos on my Instagram, but I’ve also decided that I’m going to try out vlogging a little with Keek and Vine, but I’ll share those when I’ve started filming!

My view, blogging and preparing for New York

DSC_0044One of my favorite things to do in my summer break is probably being on Tumblr. I find it so relaxing and inspiring and I can seriously spend hours on Tumblr. Tumblr is where I first started blogging and that’s what I want to talk about today, blogging. I have to say that it is quite hard to keep up a blog when you also go to school full time and have to do homework when you get back home. I wish I could do blogging full time, but right now that is just not a possibility for me and sometimes it makes me sad. I wish I could be more active, more productive and more up to date with my blog. I want my blog to grow and I want people to like my photos and the things I write about. Sometimes, (I think it’s something that more “creative” people struggle with), it feels like you get absolutely zero appreciation for what you’re doing and you ask yourself, why the hell I am even doing this? Well, that’s when I have to tell myself over and over again that I do it because I like it and not for someone else to like it. You should always do things from that perspective I think and remember that it is most important that you are enjoying what you do, rather than to do it only to entertain other people.

DSC_0056 DSC_0069This is the view from my room in Breda. I love it here and I’m so happy to live here. It’s a great location and my room is quite big and I have a lovely roommate! Staring out of my window at night makes me dream about New York and what it will be like there… I’m leaving so soon already and I still find it unreal that I’m actually going. I have started to plan a few things and for instance how I’m going to travel from the airport to my cousin in Manhattan and from there to my AirBnB home in Brooklyn. I’m so excited to be blogging from New York for two weeks and I can’t wait to take beautiful photos there and write about my experience. It’s the first time I’m traveling somewhere all by myself so to be honest I am a little terrified, but also really excited and I can’t wait for this adventure to begin!

So that’s it, a short little blog post for today, hope you guys enjoyed it!
