Current addiction.

I'm ill. It all started as a cold. Then yesterday when I woke up I lost my voice. Every time I tried to talk, a high squeaky noise would come out of my throat. The only way to get my moms attention was by snipping my fingers and talk really slowly so she could read my lips. Today my voice approved from a high squeaky sound to a low santa voice. I literally sound like a fat man who's had too many beers on a Saturday night. (That is a really offensive description of santa... Boo Sooph!) I must admit that I also feel like the man I just described. So I am ill. What the heck am I going to do? Well, I've figured out a way to kill some time and I am a 100% sure that I am not the only one who has done this. I've been watching youtube. For six hours straight... yes... I'm not even ashamed.



A few years ago I was youtube-addicted, like a teenagers at the moment, but when school started to be a bitch, I did not had any time left to feed this addiction. School is like a youtube rehab. So I just killed my own addiction, until today! I rediscovered my addiction. It started at eleven a.m. I was so bored and I had no one to talk to, because no one is willing to come closer than two meters, so I decided to open youtube again. It's a bit sad that I had not open youtube in a month while I am a youtuber myself (sort of). However, I opened youtube en started looking for beautyvideo's. Nikkitutorials is my favourite. That girl is a genius. I feel like we are best friends, while the woman doesn't even know who one earth I am. That's pathetic... Nikki is a Dutch girl who makes the most amazing make-up tutorials. She is the goddess of make-up. Her brows are perfection. The first time I watched a video by Nikkitutorials I just watched her brows for seven minutes straight. Her brows should have their own youtube channel. I'll tweet that to her later on. Best. Idea. Ever.



Next up is Zoella. Zoe is a girl from across the north sea. To be honest, I felt for her accent. First I thought: what kind of human talks like that? But in a while you are going to appreciate that cute little high voice. I wish I talked like that, but I think you must be Britain for that.  Zoe makes a lot of video's about a lot of random stuff. *Wow, best description ever.* Most of her video's are about... everything. I just love her humour and way she she looks. The girl is freaking gorgeous. When you are ill, this is a very discouraging, but also very inspirational. So when you know how to fix yourself when you're feeling better. *ATTENTION, do not try to fix your face while you're still sick. When you look like me when I'm ill, it's a waste of time and product. You'll look awful, with or without mascara.*

So that's it for today. I don't really know what I was going to tell you guys, but I'm am so damn bored. However, happy holidays to you little angels !

Lots of love,
Sophie

AMFI - AMsterdam Fashion Institute


As some of you may know, I am in my final year. My exams start in may and after that I am out of here. Since I was a little girl, I wanted to go to Amsterdam. Living in the big city is a whole other level than where I live now, which is the middle of nowhere. On the 8th of November I've visited my (hopefully) new school. Since that day I became a fangirl. I don't know if you can fangirl a school. If not, i'm the one who started this fandome. All credits for Sooph.


At this very moment i am busy with the application for my study. (actually, i should be. I'm just staring at my laptop) Fashion and Branding at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. The school is a section of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. It is equal to all other HBO studies. When I'm done with this study, i can call myself a bachelor in fashion and textile technologies. That sound pretty fancy and let me tell you guys: it is!

The core of this study is that you develop an identity into the market. Of course you need a designer to create a collection. You need a manager to create a business plan. But you will always need  brander to give the whole thing an identity. I think it is a part of the fashion industry that, sadly, has been underrated. I hope to see that change someday. Maybe i'll be the brander who makes this profession really popular. Ha! Dreams.... I'm going way to fast. First i need to get through my final year. Then i need to become a student at AMFI and then, after four years, i can call myself a brander.

Let's cross our fingers for the next six months.

Lots of Love,
Sophie
