I am gonna drown myself in coffee!

Good morning to yah all!

Just woke up after sleeping for over 12 hours. LOL. Which means that autumn is definitely here. And it effects my energy levels so bad 😦 I need to go and grill myself in a tanner soon just to get some vitamin D and hopefully some energy! haha.

Anyways. Today´s plan is to go shopping for food since I got nothing left here at home. The list is pretty long!

Image

And then I am gonna drink coffee. LOADS of coffee. Cause I have an assignment for sunday that I have to start on today and I need some brain-energy! I´ve already started my coffee-marathon. And it works pretty good!

BEFORE: Oh, friday-morning I hate you!

Waterloopleinmarkt, here I come! But first: Lil BUB´s Big Show

Morning peeps!

Margit showed me this really fun and retarded cat yesterday. To cheer you up and make sunday morning better I am going to share it with you guys. This cat is so stupid! I love it!:-p Just look at it! Hahaha.

Anyways!

Today I am going to the Waterloopleinmarkt with some friends from Prinsengracht. So excited! I love the 1 euro smoothies they got there! Yum! But I also enjoy walking around looking at all the weird and sometimes cool stuff they got there. Today I am gonna look for spraypaint for my bike and maybe repair my bike a bit.  And then I am gonna look for a cool cloth. Wish me luck!

Over and out, Cheers, Maypaj.

My lovely Amsterdam-rainponcho!

Since autum is here I bought a quite lovely, and luckily very cheap, rainponcho yesterday to avoid getting soaked when I´m biking. Pretty awesome, right? And the guy who sold it to me told me it was “one of a kind! Now how cool is that!?

Image

Now I can truly expresss my love for Amsterdam everytime it rains. I think it´s great! And the best of all is that the poncho is so huge, just like whearing a tent, so I can also use it for camping! Hurray!

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

Homedmade pancakes from the Pancake dreamteam

Since I have to start saving money I decided to go to “Albert Heijn” and buy ingredients for dutch pancakes instead of going to the “Pancake Bakery” down the street. I bought egg, flavour, sugar, broccoli, pepper, green beans, spring onions and maple syrup so that I could make both salty and sweet pancakes! Yummy!

veggies

Then I invited Sam over and we celebrated that I got over 20 followers on my blog! Hurray! Next celebration will be when I have 30 followers. Haha.

pancakeflipper

I made the stir while Sam chopped veggies and flipped pancakes.

The pancakes turned out delishious! We are the new pancake dreamteam! And it was a much cheaper dinner than eating at the “Pancake Bakery”.

Yum, yum, yum!

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

Sunday = strong independant womenday building IKEA stuff with Sam

Yesterday I whent to IKEA to buy a new matress and a table. I ended up spending way to many hours in there of course, as you always do when you go to IKEA, but I had a nice dinner there before I took the tram back to go to the “Prinsengractparty” at home.

Image

Since I could´nt carry the stuff on the tram I asked them to drive it to my door between 9-13 o´clock. BAD IDEA. Why? 1)Because I got way to wasted at the “prinsengrachtparty”. 2) Because my doorbell does´nt work. I fixed the problem by writing this note.

ikeaSince I was so f****** hungover I asked lovely Sam to help me out with the table.

Image

And we made it! Jooohoo! Which proves just how awesome and indepent women we are!

Image

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

Thrift shopping

Today I joined some student who where going to a thrift shop that sells cool vintage clothes, jewelry, furniture pluss more. It´s a cool shop located in the east of Amsterdam. Don´t remember the name right now, but I´l tell you later.

ImageImageImageImageI found a really cute dress for 10 euros. Hurray!

Live goats and shopping at TROUW

The we bicycled a little bit further to a place called “Trouw”, a indoor fleemarket/hairsaloon/chillout place/bar/food/dj place. It´s really cool! They have  everything from vintage clothes, shoes, some furniture, jewelry, old records, really good snacks and food, wine, beer, an artgally, pingpong tables and other cool games – yeah, they have so much fun stuff to buy and to do.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageI stayed there until after my friends had gone just wandering around and looking at everything. This is a place I am definately going back to. They even had live goats outside! How cool is that?!

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

New jeans, burritos and space cake

Today I´ve had almost the whole day for myself. I have been fixing som school stuff and after that I whent looking for a pair of jeans since I ruined mine last night when I tried taking them on. Why? Because this summer has been so fun! Filled with a lot of fishing, homedmade food and, of course, beer. And I also got married and partied for a week so therefore my ass is bigger then normal. Oh, well. It was definately worth it. Anyways: I found three new pairs of jeans at “Vero Moda” today. They where of a new kind of jeans -super stretchy and flexi – so it´s really comfortable to wear them. I show you pictures tomorrow.

I also fixed my picture for my student card and got help to open a dutch bankaccount at the service office at the UvA. The people who work there are really great and helpfull.

I tried burritos today at a shop nearby called “The original California Burrito”.

I was really jummy, especially since I just had shared a space cookie again (probably the last one for a while) with Justin and his new flatemate who arrived today. image_1image_2

This place had a really good cake. To bad I can´tremember the name of the coffeeshop right now….

image_3

So anyways; I am going to have an early night and whatch “Hit and Miss”, a serie about a female transexual serialkiller. Chloë Sevigny (picture) plays the maincharacter, Mia.

Image

It is really cool! I recomend it!

Tomorrow I am going to sign up for my master courses since I forgot to do it on the web, and then I am going to sign up for training somewhere and then chill out in a park if the weather is good. I am thinking of going to Vondelpark which is a huge and really nice park in the Oud-West of Amsterdam. It´s a nice place for jogging, reading books, having a picnic or just lie down and enjoy the environment and the many different kinds of birds.

Skjermbilde 2013-08-28 kl. 23.41.09Okay. Im really sleepy, so over and out for now.

Loading up for furniture shopping

20130827-123435.jpg

After drinking champagne and beer and celebrating our first day together in the apartment yesterday we are loading up for a day with furniture shopping.

20130827-121813.jpg

20130827-121850.jpg

We’re probably going to raid IKEA because they can deliver stuff at youre doorstep, which is much better than loading youre bike or taking everyrhing on the bus.

20130827-124035.jpg

Then we are maybe going to waterlooplein markt and we are also checking out http://www.marktplaats.nl which is a site where you can buy and sell stuff. Hoping to find something cool and not to expensive.

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

Shopping for more decoration

After going bananas in the “Art unlimited” I tried to bicycle straight home, but ended up visiting two more awesome stores: Jouffrouw Splinter, who has a ten years annoversary this year, and Winkeltje.

Image

Both of the shops have lots of supernice stuff to pimp youre apartment with. Everything from lamps, silvervare, dishes, pictures, pillows and more. The prices are OK. I bought a jewlery thing at Jouffrow splinter to hang my jewlery on so I can finally systematize my stuff.

Image

Then I went next door and bought the coolest lamp ever!! A glowing owl! Oooh, ooooh! I just love it! ❤

Image

Conclusion: These two shops are definately worth a peek, but it´s most fun if youre wallet is not to empty because you will definately fall in love with something in one or both the shops. But it´s definately a “to do”.

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.
