To get my extra shot of Paris without me being there, I like watching the following movies.
Midnight in Paris
This movie has a wonderful combination of nostalgia (yes I was born in the wrong era) and Paris.
Paris je t’aime
Paris in so many different ways. I love almost every story.
Everything evolves around the big opera house in Paris. Yet, I have never been there.
Julie & Julia
I must have mentioned this movie a dozen times to people or on Twitter and Facebook. It still makes me tick. I love everything about this movie and I devoured the book about Julia Child too. The movie is a must-see!
About these movies
I love seeing the avenues, the buildings, the churches (oh how I love the Notre Dame!) and the food. There are many more movies that kind of take place in Paris (like ‘Taken’) but you don’t see anything of Paris. The lovely thing about these movies is that you can watch it and dream about Paris, as much as you like.
What movies that (partly) take place in Paris do you like?

To reach a million she made a piece of art representing a cat (Kitty) that is in a shelter and needs a new home. I think Anne is a very talented artist and she has a wide variety in her work. She makes wonderful art and does commissions too. If you are interested, definitely look up her insta profile or send her a message. And a big, big plus: she is a lovely, kind, and gentle person. I am happy to

Thankfully I got to the 800(!!) participants that I needed. Just swipe to see me in action. (Don't mind the closed eyes, I was happy) I have written the results section and am about to show it to my teacher and then write my discussion and conclusion. It seems that the end of my master thesis is coming closer. Until then, it is working on it every day for at least 2 hours. • •

Today has been nice with breakfast in bed, sleeping in (in that order), relaxing, receiving great birthday cards (I LOVE MAIL), reading birthday wishes, getting cake, and enjoying time with family. Thank you for all the love I have received. And I am very grateful that I am yet again a little older. To be honest, I didn’t like the idea of turning 35. I felt as if I hadn’t accomplished just yet what I hoped for.
6 dagen agoby mrsstillettoDo you still have or see friends from your time at college/university? • This is my friend and myself when we were at the concert of Marco Borsato. • We met a long time ago at NHTV during the introduction week. We liked the vibe of each other and decided to tag along. During classes we would stick together, in Turkey we were roomies, and after graduation we went on several trips together backpacking Europe. But time changes almost everything: we started working, getting married, having children and, you know, life happened. However, when the tickets sale started for this
