Phew! By my absence this week you can really tell that work has started again! :) I can act all tough and say that I really don't feel like being there but to be real honest, I kinda missed my job and my colleagues (just a tiny tiny bit!). And, since I work in education, I only have so many weeks to count down before the Autumn break starts ^_^

I guess I don't talk about it much on the blog, but I'm a Christian (and proud to be :)). Yesterday we went to visit "Noah's Ark", a real full-size replica of the Ark that Noah built, commissioned by God. Why was this replica built? (Quote from the website:) "It was built by Johan Huibers, a contractor from a small village in the province of North Holland. In 1992, he dreamt that waves from the ocean washed over the Netherlands during a storm. The dream was followed by even more signs, meaning he had to rebuild the Ark. However, this time the Ark was not meant to save people from a global flood as Noah did 4,000 years ago, but to tell people that there is a God who loves us, and that He has a plan for our lives"
I cannot tell you how impressive it was to see that Noah built all of this, without the modern tools we have now. And even now, it took the builders 4 years to construct this replica. It is 30 metres wide (98 ft and 5 something inches), 23 metres high (75 feet and 5 something inches), and 135 metres long (442 ft 10 inches)! It has really shown me once again how great God is, and how lucky I am to know Him in my life.
If you're ever in the Netherlands, do visit! You can find more information on www.arcofnoah.org or www.arkvannoach.com.

Ahhh how time flies! This week is the last week of my holiday already! I've spent lots and lots of time hanging around in my backyard and just soaking up the sun, love it! I haven't been up to much else to be real honest. When you're a wife, mom, employee (and as of September student too!) it's kinda nice to do absolutely nothing from time to time. Don't y'all agree?
Well, I'm off to doing nothing again, have a nice day! :)

With a dress like this one, I can't help but feeling like a 5 year old again and twirl all day. It's just so flowy and light! And matched with these glittery shoes I feel like a princess. Sounds familiar? Do you have an item in your closet that makes you twirl all day?
P.S: The name of the winner of the $50 IGIGI gift card is mentioned in the original post.

Ooh how I wish I could live in a pile of sequins.... (with something protecting me from the scratching of them of course :))
I purchased these leggings as soon as they came online at Asos but never posted them on the blog. So here it is now, aren't they lovely? Well not according to my husband, mom and dad, but hey, whatever makes ME happy right?!
