You know you're in the Australian outback when...

... the nearest town is 2 hours away

... you start calling a cowboy hat a wide-brim hat

... you're on the toilet and a gecko comes crawling through your legs

... you have to add half an hour to your travelling time because you'll have to slow down for kangaroos and cows obstructing the road

... you are no longer surprised or excited when you see a kangaroo

... you look like a cooked chicken with that ridiculous tan

... you overcome your fear of spiders in about two days

... your biggest worry is how to get those goats back in their pen

... you can ride at least five different vehicles

... you're drinking milk that came out of a cow the same morning

... you get huge scratches on your ass from falling out of trees (although that might just be me)

... going on a horse ride and then stopping in the middle of nowhere for some tea is no big deal

My Life in Pictures #11

Another round of MLIP! These are some older pictures already (I'm currently in the sunny Australia) but I still want to share them.

23/09: I'm always trying to make pad thai either with chicken or shrimp), my favorite Thai dish. This is the closest I've come so far.- 25/09: Car selfie.

27/09: I like to add old stamps when I send a letter or postcard.- 01/10: It was my birthday in September and my father surprised me with this awesome buffet. My family came over and it was really fun.

03/10: I said goodbye to my sweet baby. I had this iphone 4 for 2 years and it served me well, It actually still worked but it was losing it's power. It survived two broken toilets and being flushed down the toilet once, - 05/10: This was an outfit in October, surprising Belgian weather (it's usually so cold by then.)

05/10: My uncle gave me this coke for my birthday, loved it! - 10/10: Flashback to the previous autumn.

14/10: This guy is a demolisher. - 16/10: Bought my fourth pair of black all stars already.

18/10: Tired but happy selfie. - 28/10: Little sausage.

31/10: Halloween! I actually just wore a skull dress but decided to add some freaky (and cliche) make-up. - 05/10: Black cat (would have fit the halloween theme well ofcourse.)

7/11: Good morning selfie! - 11/11: I decided to soak up as much fall as I could in my last week in Belgium and it didn't disappoint,

12/11: See the above.

What are you up to?

Empties july/august/september 2014

Today I'm showing you everything I used up in the past couple of months. It's not everything since I forgot to save a couple of things instead of throwing them away but it's a pretty good presentation of things I use. It seems like I don't use a lot of shower gel but that's because I have a giant bottle of the body shop grapefruit in my shower. Also, it was really awkward throwing all of this in the trash at once. My mom thought I was turning into a weird hoarder. What do you use most each month?

Photo above: If you couldn't notice, I use a lot of rosewater. I always use it to clean my face in the mornings and evenings and/or as a toner and it works like a charm for me. It's cheap too! The secret deodorant is my absolute favorite. Too bad we don't have it in Belgium.

Photo above: Lots of shampoo! I wash my hair every other day so I use a lot of it. I don't use conditioner though, I feel like it makes my hair more greasy. My favorite was the one from The Body Shop and Ultra Doux grapefruit one.

Photo below: Toothpaste, dry shampoo (which I loved), deodorant and cleaning wipes. I'm a bit addicted to these wet wipes, they're perfect for a lazy person like me.

Read & Watched 2014: part 3

The third installment of read & watched already. I have to admit, my first post was maybe a bit too optimistic but it does push me to read a little more which I can only be happy about. I'm always happy when I have something to put on my list too, haha. Again, send your recommendations my way! (Bold = favorites)

- A Dance With Dragons
- The Magicians
- Vampire Academy
- Frostbite
- Shadow Kiss
- Blood Promise
- Spirit Bound
- Last Sacrifice
- The Walking Dead 6: This Sorrowful Life
- City of Lost Souls
- City of Heavenly Fire
- the Maze Runner

I finished the A Song of Ice and Fire series and I'm looking forward to the next book! The Magicians I enjoyed a lot in the beginning but I ended up not liking it that much. I don't think I'll read the prequel. I read the Vampire Academy series, it was enjoyable but not something I would recommend. The Walking Dead is a comic but I think it still counts. I reread the City of Lost Souls since the last part of the series came out. I actually really enjoyed City of Heavenly Fire. I'm thinking there's going to be another book though and I actually wouldn't mind it! I started the Mazerunner series and although I liked it, it took me a while to finish it. The book didn't exactly captivate me.

- Bro's before Ho's
- Fired Up
- That Awkward Moment
- The Heat

- Love and Honor
- X-Men
- Drillbit Taylor
- Hall Pass

- Vampire Academy
- The Other Woman
- Drinking Buddies
- Bad neighbours

- The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
- Don Jon
- Johnny English Reborn
- The Five Year Engagement

37/50 books: As I said, I might have been a little too optimistic but I'm already happy with the amount I read this year!
41/52 movies: I'll make this happen!
