Symbolic African costumes designed for Black Panther

Costume designer Ruth E. Carter is the mastermind behind all the African costumes worn in the Marvel movie Black Panther. This genius designer was inspired by various African tribes and the symbolic triangle, as she explains it. “There is a huge misunderstanding about what Africa is”, she says. “Most people think it’s just one big thing”.  Continue reading “Symbolic African costumes designed for Black Panther”

Huishoudbeurs 2018: Pasar Colours Festival – Surinamese Day

Just like I mentioned in my previous post about the Huishoudbeurs, my third visit was all about the Pasar Colours Festival, because it was all about Surinamese entertainment that day. Unfortunately, I arrived later than planned, because I had to finnish the blogpost about the day before which took longer than I thought. But even though I missed half of the entertainment, I still had a great time at Pasar Colours Festival – Surinamese Day.

Huishoudbeurs 2018: Fashion & Beauty

My second visit to the Huishoudbeurs 2018 was yesterday on Wednesday, which was also the start of the Negen Maanden Beurs (Nine Months Fair), a fair that, as the name may suggest, that is all about baby stuff. Since this fair has nothing to do with my personal interests yet, it wasn’t the reason for me to go to Huishoudbeurs that day, but I did visit it for a second just to see what was going on there. My visit to the Huishoudbeurs that day was about checking out the Fashion & Beauty section. Continue reading “Huishoudbeurs 2018: Fashion & Beauty”

Rita Ora slays at 10th year Independence Day of Kosovo

Who says that movies can’t teach you history. Yesterday I was watching some foreign language movies on Netflix, because just like my fashion, food and music, I like to switch things up with movies too. While Hollywood movies are still my go to for a good movie marathon, I am well aware that the world has many countries that know what they’re doing in the film department.

A date with myself: Fifty Shades Freed

There it was. The movie première every “Fifty Shades” fan was waiting for. On Wednesday 7 February 2018 the day was finally here.
