I have been crushing on cropped tops lately. Belly-tops are back y’all and they are worn and sold everywhere. I bought my first cropped top 3 years ago from Topshop. A grey loose top which I combined with a pair of high waisted shorts. But nowadays the top is worn the same way they did in the 90’s, showing a stripe of skin or even your entire belly. Which is also the tricky catch behind this trend. Either you wear it in a fashionable way, or it turns out slutty. Which was the word my brother used when describing my outfit last thursday. Cropped can’t go wrong when you pair it with a blazer and some coloured jeans, like I did. But apparently my brother thought otherwise. I think that this is a trend which isn’t really accepted as fast as maybe other trends, it takes some getting used to. And hey, I don’t blame them, everybody is showing their belly at the moment, it is quite a shock if you’re not into the whole “fashion-thing”. I recently bought 3 cropped tops, very simple and really cheap. And when I am of to London tomorrow I am sure that I will be seeing more of them in stores such as Primark and Topshop. Here are some examples. What do you think?

The last couple of weeks I have noticed a change in myself. I have become way more relaxed and easy in so many things. Not only did my attitude calm down a bit, my music sense and style became quite soft. Lets first talk about the attitude. As a teenager I was a real pain in the arse. Probably still am sometimes.. I think there just snapped something in me that said; Jelske, just calm down for a sec. Don’t over-think everything and accept how shit is going to be, and know that you can’t do anything about it. This thought helped me with just being able to let things go. Not only during arguments with my parents, but with friends as well, and even my love-life. If I even had one. At the moment my life is calm, and easy. I plan things the day before, or even on the day itself. I will take what the day will bring me. Carpe Diem. Live from day to day. Quite a good motto if you ask me!
Let’s talk music. In a couple of months I have changed from, moombahton, reggeaton etc. etc. to deep-house and techno. Which I think gives a very calming and relaxing mood, especially when falling asleep in the sun. But when present in a big crowd with lasers everywhere, a song can turn into a real dancing tune. Don’t get me wrong, I still like the music I listened before all of this. But I just like this calm music more at the moment. Don’t worry, I am not turning into a groovy hipster with a high feel all the time, I am still me. And sure, there are days that I don’t really want to listen to my majestic techno playlist, alternation is good sometimes. I will list some songs at the end of the article, so you listen with me! On the 18th of may I will go to Soenda, which is a techno-festival. And I am super exited about it. And the day after, Dancetour will be in my hometown. A free-festival, where they play all kinds of house music. Busy weekend for me as you can tell. If you’re going as well, let me know! Last but not least, at all, my friends. I have been hanging out a lot with my friend Rikki and Fleur, they are both very out-going girls, whom I can laugh a lot with. I have been in an ignoring-phase with one of my best-friends for a while, but to be honest, it doesn’t really bother me as much as it used to. My life goes on and I have other friends whom I can do things with. I will always be open to talk with her, but she has to let me know when she is ready for it as well, because I am simply tired to constantly asking. I am tired of always being the one who puts effort into stuff, friendships, “flirtationships”, name it. I am almost always the one who keeps the ball rolling. Now that I have discovered my motto, I know that if the ball doesn’t roll back as fast, don’t give a hard push in return. You never really know if there will be someone at the other end ones you’ve thrown it. I am just curious is there actually someone out there to play ball with? And if there is, it will come my way, we’ll say. For now, I will close my eyes and enjoy the shining sun and the sounds in my ear.

Recently I have discovered that I am a very bad planner. I plan things for school, work, the list goes on, but I never actually do them at the time I planned them. Take my PA for instance, I knew about it for such a long time, but I just waited for the last moment to actually do that stuff. Which leads to me ending up with no partner, and no subject for the practical assignment. I didn’t succeed to hand it in before the deadline by the way. This will cost me a whole mark. You would think I would have learned my lesson, but I didn’t. My LV Speedy is still at the maker, which it is already for 4 weeks I think? Maybe even longer. I should really get my bag back. But since I don’t have a single dime, I am not able to pay the man. And just like the coward I am, I feel a bit awkward when I walk into the store.. And even today I experienced the consequence of beginning too late. I plan things, I say I am going to do things, and I end up doing nothing. But something I am really sorry for is that I haven’t posted anything for the last couple of weeks.. I know, I know, shame on me, and I do, I am sorry, I feel ashamed. That’s why I thought why not explain it in my next post?
Let me tell you something about my englishteacher, she is also a very bad planner. Not only does she not tell us that we have a listening test, she is very bad at returning tests, I recently received a test I made somewhat mid january. It’s not that I can’t sleep because of it, but it is still annoying as hell. This made me think that being bad at planning also affects others, it isn’t really the main reason I should finally take a look into my diary, but a part of it. I know this post doesn’t really have a good point, but I just really wanted to get it out there, because this is my damn blog. Do you ever feel the same shitty feeling when you know you have postponed something to the last moment? I am at this exact moment, because I should be learning right now..

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed that I did some shopping today. I am glad to present you; my new purchases, including the very sporty and subtle New Balance sneakers. My monthly shopping-money had finally arrived on my bank-account, and with the generous donation of my mother because of my great performances at school, I could easily afford me some new kicks. But I did not leave it with only the shoes, because I saw this shirt and cross earrings at New Look, and this necklace at H&M. The weather is still not that great, but shopping for sweaters and hoodies seems a waste of money to me, since summer is around the corner. But on the other side it is still too cold to buy any tanktops or shorts. So I made myself a clear deal; I am saving my money up, so when I am leaving for London in about 6 weeks, I have enough to buy myself a summer wardrobe. Because as if right now, I don’t know what to shop for at all because the sneakers are in the pocket. Maybe that is a good thing! Let’s hope I keep this promise to myself.
