Making Dreams Come True.

Yesterday my attention was brought to this video of a Dutch 13 year old girl who died in a car accident a few weeks ago. Her biggest dream was to become famous as an actress. Her dad didn’t have any clips of her acting but he came across this video of his daughter, Anna van Keulen, playing the Downton Abbey tune on the piano.

Her dad decided to share this video on Twitter and he thereby asked people to watch and share this video to make his daughters wish come true. And it did come true. They published the video on the 28th of October and as of this moment (30th of october) it has had 1,429,956 views on youtube, it has been played on the Dutch radio, and the clip has been on several Dutch TV programmes.

My daughter Anna wanted to become famous. Suddenly she died.. Help her to become famous by watching this!

I just really wanted to share this video with you guys because a) She deserves it b) her piano playing sounds beautiful c) I know I don’t have that many followers but I really want to try to make her famous all over the world and not just in the Netherlands. Because this young girl died way to young in a tragic car accident on her way to school 2 weeks ago.

So if you’re reading this: Please share this with all your friends and family and together we can make Anna’s dream come true.

Prime Deception – Carys Jones

At the beginning of July I was given the chance to read Prime Deception by Carys Jones. It’s now almost 5 months later and I’ve time to write the review. I finished reading this book about a month ago and after that I was busy moving, had no place to properly use my computer and after that I was mostly busy getting settled in the new house. But here we are now time for the review!

20859669

When Lorna Thomas is found dead in her car everyone believes she killed herself. But the day after her death Lorna was set to sell a scandalous story to one of Britain’s biggest tabloid papers. For six months she had been the Deputy Prime Minister’s mistress.

Will Lorna’s secret die with her? While her family try to move on and come to terms with her death one person refuses to believe that Lorna killed herself. Her twin sister, Laurie is convinced that Lorna was murdered and she’ll stop at nothing to prove it, even if that means teaming up the very man her sister had been having an affair with…

First things first: I love reading crime novels. I love how it builds up to a climax and you find out who did what and why. Carys Jones didn’t disappoint me in this!

When I started reading the book it took me a while to get into it. I also lost my appetite to reading so it was really hard for me to read any book. But after weeks of reading just a few pages, sometimes just 1 because I couldn’t get my mind to it, I started to get into the story and I couldn’t put my eReader down!

Prime Deception isn’t a long story but it’s a good story! I even managed to figure out just in time who did it and I was pleasantly surprised to get it right. Because 80% of the time I am wrong. Because Prime Deception isn’t a long story it’s a light read it’s just about what happened with Lorna and how the DPM deals with his mistress’s death and how Lorna’s sister deals with her death.

I really recommend reading this book if you like Crime/Mistery novels. It’s a good read especially when you’re looking for a shorter book in-between 2 heavier ones.

You can find Prime Deception for Kindle on Amazon for £2.99

You can also find Prime Deception at the following places:
You can also visit Carys’s website to find out more about her and her other books: First to Fall, Second to Cry, and Sunkissed.

I can safely say that I will go and read her other books too one day when my mind is more into reading. To be really honest I hate that I can’t properly focus on books at the moment.

My new room.

As of the 14th of October we officially don’t own our old house anymore and we’re officially moved into our new house. I also unpacked the last of my boxes yesterday and the 2 things I ordered on Amazon arrived. Which I wasn’t expecting at all.

My room isn’t completely done yet. I stil need a new lamp, new power-sockets (I want ones with a USB for charging my phone). I also had a rug on this list, but we went to Ikea last saturday and I bought one. I also bought some fairy lights because the christmas section of Ikea was looking at me all inviting and all. I also had to keep myself from buying decorations I don’t know where to put.

There is also 1 thing I never bought, and I really wanted it. It was this lamp from Ikea.

The reason I never bought it was that it was to big.  If I would’ve bought it would be impossible for me to walk through my room. But I did fall I love with it the second I saw it in Ikea.

Anyways here’s just a little glimpse of some of the things in my room.

The London thing on my wall is a present my friends gave me for my birthday this year. The 3 really new things in my room at the moment are the closet with the mirror. I got that at Ikea it’s the Brimnes. The Union Jack Pillow I bought that one on Amazon and it turned out the be a Sherlock prop. And the fox doorstop I also got on Amazon.
