February Loves

Hi lovely readers! It's March (the month of my birthday! Yay!) and that means I have another 'Loves' article for you. I posted the first article of this little series in January and I really enjoyed writing it! I've encountered a few things I am looking forward to sharing!

The Theory Of Everything and Whiplash (movies)
CutiePieMarzia (you know, the girl with the cute dresses and long hair on YouTube) recommended these two movies and I decided to watch them both, even though I didn't love the idea of any of the movies before: The Theory Of Everything is about Stephen Hawking and his personal life, Whiplash is about a boy who wants to become the best drummer of the world. I found both movies to be very inspiring, though - Miles Teller (Whiplash) is one of my favourite actors ever and The Theory Of Everything was just so convincing and it felt better because it was real. (You know that feeling? That 'based on a true story' line makes everything so impactful.) I'd recommend watching both movies: The Theory Of Everything is not only for science-lovers, and Whiplash is not only for music-lovers.

The Beginning Of Everything (book)
When I was googling for the movie I just mentioned, this book came up as a search result (because of the one-word difference). I didn't realize this at first but I saw I had this book on my e-reader and because of this coincidence, I decided to start reading it and I from the first moment on, the book caught me. The book is about a popular boy who loses his popularity due to an unfortunate car accident - he meets his pre-popularphase friends again and falls in love with an extraordinary girl. This results in a beautiful lovestory, but not a predictable one. I adored reading it, and if you're into young adult books (like John Green books) you should give this one a go.

Vance Joy (music)
I'm sure you know the song 'Riptide'. I was scared of dentists and the dark - I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations.. / I adored that song in the summer but I only recently discovered the musician behind it: Vance Joy. He has some other really enjoyable songs. My favourites: Mess Is Mine & First Time.

In The Frow
I had spotted her purple hair several times but I was convinced to check out her channel once I saw her collab-video with Beautycrush. I love discovering new YouTubers to binge-watch! Hehe!

Design Love Fest / Dress Your Tech
I'm constantly on the hunt for new wallpapers. I love Oana Befort's wallpapers but I discovered a website sharing other beautiful websites as well. Click here to go to the most recent collection - there now are 82 wallpaper collections or so!

Kingsman: The Secret Service
I don't like aggressive action movies but this movie was seriously awesome. If you're in for a James Bond-type of movie but want to be able to laugh a bit as well, make sure to give this one a go.

Strawberry & Elderflower Tea
I definitely am a tea-person. I couldn't live without it! I recently discovered this awesome tea by Clipper and I've had one or two cups a day for the last week. I love it!

Limp Bizkit
I saw Limp Bizkit perform live in May (or June?) 2014 and I really liked their performance: I only knew the song 'Break Stuff', though, back then. I recently downloaded some newer songs and man, what an awesome band! I don't like every song as some of them are really heavy but most songs are very cool.

The Peculiar Life Of A Lonely Postman (book)
This book (written by Denis Thériault) is a very tiny and short book but it's story is beautiful: I enjoyed every minute I spent reading it.

  5. What lovely picks and a lovely post!


  6. Had no idea that Limp Bizkit was still around? I really enjoyed the film Whiplash...so much intensity!


  7. I really want to see all of those films, love Eddie Redmayne in everything and have heard good things about Kingsman too (<3 Colin Firth!). I like the diversity of this post, a great way to do an end of month sum up - the wallpaper link is intriguing me thanks! :-)

  8. Great post hun!

  9. Hi :) I have nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award: http://hushhush990.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-versitile-blogger-award.html

  10. As you mentioned The Theory Of Everything isn't only for science lovers - would you say it is for science lovers at all? Is it only about the love story or does it focus on Hawking's work aswell sometimes? I'm willing to watch it one way or the other but I had actually hoped I might find out a little more about Hawking himself when I heard of the film - having read reviews on various blogs now, I suppose it's more of a love story though...


  11. It's not a good movie for science lovers. I don't know more about Stephen Hawking now than I did before: it's a romantic movie based on his life and centered around his disability but it doesn't tell us anything about his theories or his disease more specifically.

  12. Leuk lijstje! The Beginning Of Everything lijkt me een leuk boek!
