Thank you all for the questions! I enjoyed answering them!







  1. Rachel, I enjoyed this so much! :-) Thank you for answering all my questions. :-)
    Firstly... WONDERLAND CREEK. YES I LOVE THAT BOOK SO MUCH. I'm rereading it right now and I just... gah. It's sososo good. Alice and me are basically the same person. :-P
    I'm scared of dogs too... and not only the scary-looking ones. :-P
    I don't often wear makeup either; I never ever did since like, two months ago; now I wear a little on special occasions.
    Lynn Austin YEAHH. :-)
    Oh, next time you come to Belgium... Maybe we could like, meet up. THAT WOULD BE COOL. :-) We live quite close to Brussels. Do you have relations/friends in Belgium?
    Period Drama soundtracks are the best. :-)
    Beautiful blog look!

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment Naomi!

      We had friends in Belgium, but they moved to Portugal. :(
      I don't know when I will be in Belgium again. Maybe someday.

  2. Love this!
    I love Cinderella; I dream of someday going to England; hot cocoa is the best; love the hairstyles (I have done a couple of those but some look impossible!!); Ice friend wants me to learn but I told him I simply can't...I'd like to learn though; and period drama soundtracks are fabulous!
    About the languages, cool!! I am learning German...barely. I know English and a fair bit of Spanish. I always admire people who can fluently speak multiple languages. Like you!
    Awesome post! :)

    1. Thank you Rae for your lovely comment!!!

      Aww, thank you. I don't speak German fluently, but I do speak Dutch and English fluenty.

      Spanish!!! My sister is learning it. It's a beautiful language, but difficult.

      You just have to learn ice skating, it's magical. I always try to do these hairstyles, but they never succeed. :(
      I always ask my sister to do it, when I am in a mood where I want to change my hair look. :)

      England is also my dream of someday going. Hot choco is the best.

  3. I guess I will have to read Wonderland Creek!!! Great answers Rachel!! I love this because I get to know more about you!!!

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment MovieCritic!!!

      Wonderland= the best book of the world. :) You MUST read it, I'm not forcing anything.

  4. LOVE the hairstyle pics! Lily James is my favorite actress, too, *high five* :)
    I enjoyed reading your answers and getting to know you, Rachel. (And, btw, I get nervous around big dogs, too.)

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment Elanor!!!

      Lily James is and always be my favourite actress.
      Yah, high five!!

      I don't really like dogs actually, I don't like cats either. I know they are cute when they are little, but they can be mean, even if they look cute. :)

    2. I do like dogs generally, but only if they're small. You're right though, they can be mean. Story time: I had a German shepherd "playfully" attack me when I was younger. However, to me there was nothing playful about it; it freaked me out and I've never liked big dogs since.

    3. I like cats and dogs when they are little.

      Really? That must have been scary.
      I had a little dog when I was little, but we had to sell it, because we moved.

  5. Very fun! I loved all those hairstyles you shared. I've done something a little like the third and last pictures you posted, for my daughters -- a French braid that wraps around the head. It was really tricky at first, but now I don't need to follow instructions to do it (we got a cool book of "Frozen"-inspired hairstyles for them and we have fun trying them all out).

    1. Thank you Hamlette!!

      I always try out new hairstyles, but they never work. I try it every time I want a new hairstyles, but it always go wrong. :( Frozen hairstyles are really pretty.

    2. I'm not very adventurous with my hair -- I've simply had long hair all my life, and I have about five different things I had learned to do with it over the years. So I have enjoyed having a book that shows step-by-step how to do different styles so I can give my girls something fancy or fun when they want it.

  6. Those hairstyles are gorgeous! :D
