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.
I just finished watching the movie Remember Sunday and I just had to write a blog post about this movie. Because it was just ….
Remember Sunday is a movie about Gus (Zachary Levi) who has lost his short term memory after a brain aneurysm. One morning he meets Molly (Alexis Bledel) at the cafe she’s works at. She likes him, he likes her but she doesn’t know what’s wrong with Gus. Every day is a brand new day for Gus, his life starts anew. Every day he sees Molly he’s not able to connect the dots and recognise just how, exactly, she fits into his life. But there’s something about this beautiful, sensitive, funny woman that makes Gus fall in love with her all over again, day after day.
I know the plot sounds an awful lot like “50 first dates” but I can assure you this movie is way better. This is more heartfelt and makes you really think about things. It’s a heartwarming and beautiful movie and it made me tear up at the end. Even though the ending isn’t as you’d expect it to be, or it is. I feel like it’s perfect I really wish I could talk about the ending. But I don’t want to spoil it for people who still have to watch the movie.
You might think after reading the plot and seeing the trailer that it’s an average romantic chick flick. It’s not the trailer is not doing this movie any justice. Als this is the only trailer there is originally it aired as a TV movie and apparently they don’t need proper trailers. Which is a shame.
I stumbled upon this movie on Netflix, it was recommended to me several times and I never really noticed it. But this time I really took a look at the description and I noticed Alexis Bledel is in this movie and that made me watch this movie. I can easily say I have no regrets watching this movie at all.
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!
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
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.
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.
