F*CK

Today was the worst day of my life with a DSLR. One of my favorite lenses (Canon 35-70mm f3.5-4.5 with macro ability) fell in the water.... f*ck....

My mom wanted to do some groceries at a supermarket about 10/15 minutes from home. I decided to go with her. We went by bike and I took my camera with me just in case. Nearby the supermarket was a lake with a lot of green. I love to take photos of nature! I just had to take some photos there. So I stayed at the lake until my mom was done with the groceries. I parked my bike and started shooting. Everything went well (I was more worried I would fall into the lake) until I wanted to change the lens, because I needed the lens with the polarization filter on it... I took the other lens off and it just slided through my fingers and rolled right into the lake! Plop! I really cried like a little girl... and tried to save it, but couldn't find it. I called my mom in tears and she came looking for the lens with me.. Thank God, she found my lens!!!! It was already soaked though... We went right back home and my mom blow dried it. It actually worked! Yeah, my lens is dry! Whiiiieeee!! It does has a few water stains, but didn't saw that back in the testshots I took. I Haven't tried the autofocus yet, but I want to let it really dry before I try that out. Hopefully it will work fine (I don't think it will, but hey gotta think positive!) :). If not, I can still use the manual focus. I'm just glad to have my lens back!

Thanks mom! (L)

Here are some photos I took before the disaster.

My mom told me I looked like Michael Jackson

I have a lot of flats, pumps and boots, but no casual shoes. Shoes I can wear every season and wear whenever I don't feel like to be too girly. At first I wanted to buy sneakers, but my endless search brought me no perfect shoes. I just couldn't find ones that fit my style of clothes...
A few days ago I went to a market in Amsterdam and I found these cute patent leather shoes (for only 5 euros! What a bargain!!). I so have a weakness for patent... So had to take them with me. The other day I wore them with white socks, black trousers, black and white striped shirt and a marine blue blazer. My mom laughed and told me I looked like MJ with my shiny shoes and white socks.

Mestreech

Yesterday my best friend and I went to Maastricht. We did some window shopping, made some photos, had a lot of laughs and at the end of the day we went to a shisha lounge called Matuchi. It was the worst shisha lounge ever. The shisha was nice, but the GOT TO DO SOMETHING about the customer service (I've never been treated so rudely at a bar/lounge whatever) and the fact that you have to pay for (extra) charchaol.. w t f?! Never heard of that... It was my first time at Matuchi and probably my last! But we had a lot of fun together though :)
The weather was also great. No, I'm lying it wasn't great :p it was freaking too hot! Didn't expect that! It was freezing cold in Amsterdam (I really wanted to bring my scarve with me) and it was like tropical hot Maastricht... Yeah I know I'm complaining too much haha :p It may sound all bad, but it defiantly was not! I had a great day! There's something about Maastricht. It just feels like I'm in another country even though I'm not. Maastricht looks so not Dutch and the people don't really sound Dutch (when they talk in their dialect)..
