I'm not going to write you a love song! But a very long post

I don't know what it is lately, but I'm almost every night tired. Not such a bad thing, because that means I can sleep properly at night. And I've always been a trouble sleeper. But it is a problem when you have to work hard for a presentation that isn't finished yet at 11 o'clock in the evening... That's what I did yesterday evening. Working hard on an English/fashion design presentation. We had to give a presentation today, about the children collection we designed for fashion design and we had to talk in Enligsh, for our English class. 3 words. Bring it on. I always like to talk in English, especially with an obviously fake English accent. But I got several 7's and an 7,5. So I'm pretty happy with my marks. No worries about a bad school report! And I still have to go 1,5 week to school and after that we have the activity week, when we go to Antwerp. Yay! I love Antwerp. That means some good vintage shopping, hehe. And a lot of photos. After that I have my internship and I can't wait! I'm really looking forward to it. Never thought those words would come out of my mouth.

I wore this last saturday, when my dad and I went to Utrecht. To do some shopping. You've already seen the Miu Miu and Prada boxes, but what's in it? You can see it if you scroll down (scroll back up after it, please). Also made a couple of photos and some James Bond-ish photo of my dad in the garage. Pretty funny. And another thing. I decided that I hate my hair straight. It looks ridiculous and too short on the front. Stupid hairdresser. That means curls for a while!

And here are the shoes! (probably already scrolled down, I suppose)
I tried on the Miu's for almost a year ago, but at the end I choose for an other pair. My first Prada's. But all of those months I couldn't get them out of my head. So 2 weeks ago I finally decided I was going to call the store owner. We know each other really well and I'm one of his best costumers, so he always helps me with these kind of things. And my dad and mom always bought shoes at his store once a month, when they were still together. So I called him to ask if he still had the Miu Miu pumps I tried on last year in May. He looked it up in the computer for me and he did! I was so happy! So last saturday my dad and I went to Utrecht et voila! Here they are.

And about these Prada pumps. That's just so much luck. I wanted to buy these myself next month, when I had my money (I've been saving!), because from the first time I saw them I just knew I had to haven them. But first I tried them on. What if they didn't fitted good or I just dissapointing on? Rare chance, but who knew? So I asked to store owner if he could hold them aside for me, till the beginning of next month. He wanted to that, if I gave him a down payment of €1,- haha. Whereupon I said: 'well, this must be your lucky day, because I will going to give you €2,-!'. It's not so funny now, but it was at the moment. But (not ready with the story yet) I already had to go to the toilet ever since we left the house. So my dad asked the store owner if I could use his toilet. That was alright, so I went to toilet and when I got back my dad had 2 bags in his hand. I was like what is this? Did you bought shoes without showing me? He said he had bought some Prada sneakers with green, red and white. And I was like 'I thought you didn't liked Prada shoes for men?'. Gues what he did. He bought them for me. Isn't he so incredibly sweet?! I'm SO SO SO lucky with a dad like that.
