5) I love looking at engagement rings. They are so special and pretty. I can't wait to have my own, but it will take a while because Calvin and I have only officially been together for three months. It isn't forbidden to dream though...

Things that cheer me up!

 1) Bentos. I love Japanese lunch boxes, their bentos are amazing. I'm especially fond of the pink strawberry designs. A lot of Japanese people are food artists and they make the most fantastic cute food designs. I'm not very skilled at that, but putting regular lunches in a cheerful package is already a good start. This set is from ebay.

2) Fantasy art. It's something that I can keep looking at for hours and it will never bore me. I'm a big fan of Ching-Chou Kuik.

3) Beautiful mugs. I love this floral Cath Kidston range!

Facts about Lavender

1. I've got a sweet tooth. I could eat candy all day. I love traditional sweets and even though I have my favorites I try to vary in what I'm buying, because it's all so delicious and I don't want to miss anything. I like these heart shaped sweets a lot and I'm glad I'm living in the Netherlands as they make great sweets here.

2. The last thing I bought is Anna Sui berry hand cream from Asos. It's no secret that I love beauty products and I often try new things. I can't wait to find out what this Anna Sui cream is like!

3. Yesterday I bought Night Owl by M. Pierce after someone recommended it to me. I look forward to reading it! When someone tells me I should read a book I often buy it straight away. Because of this I've read a lot of great books that I would never have come across otherwise.

4. I like dark chocolate. Raw chocolate is delicious as well! I want my products to be as friendly for humans and the environment as possible. I'm all for slave free chocolate that is good for the farmers as well as for me. 

5. I like pocket mirrors. I have quite a few of them and am always looking for a gorgeous new design. I use them in my home, but will also never leave the house without one. This beauty is from La Marelle.

Suzanne's Birthday Facts

1) Last year my parents gave me a box filled with 35 books! A Night on the Orient Express by Veronica Henry was one of them.

2) My birthday is on September 4th. As I love the summer and Lavender is a cheerful and sunny person I thought I would give her a June birthday. The last day of the month, in the middle of the year. It suits her very well.

4) I always put clothing on my birthday wishlist, because I love wearing something new on my special day. My mother gets me something nice every year!

5) I like to give myself a birthday present. A friend gave me the idea and I loved it. It's wonderful to spoil myself with something I don't need, but really like. 

6) One time I had a disastrous birthday. I was on holiday and my husband forgot to bring the decorations and my present. We made reservations for lunch and the restaurant hadn't put us in their book and was completely full, so they sent us away. My husband made up for it as soon as we came home by making sure I could celebrate again on another day with lots of champagne. My present was a beautiful jewellery set.

7) I've been ill on my birthday several times. Fortunately I've been able to postpone the celebrations and haven't missed anything because of it. Once I had a delicious meal, prepared in the kitchen of a restaurant and picked up by my husband, in bed.

8) My friends often buy me presents together. For example to give me a complete series of books.

9) My husband likes to congratulate me in public places. Even, or maybe especially, when it's not my birthday. I've received lots of good wishes from strangers and even though it embarrasses me very much I do think it's kind of funny.

Facts about Jada

1) Jada loves to read about food. Her favorite book is Chocolat by Joanne Harris.

2) Jada and I are close friends now, but our friendship started in a weird way. We both dated the same guy named Oliver who was her long term boyfriend. They were engaged, only he didn't care about that when he started to date me. When she found out she was heartbroken. I was mainly angry at the guy. Jada and I have gained more than we lost from this nasty situation as I think this will be a friendship for life.

3) Jada loves unique jewelry and she often wears this ring. You can find it on Etsy.

4) Jada lives in a mansion. Her parents are loaded. She isn't a spoiled brat though, she's actually very down to earth. 

5) Jada loves to cook. Her mother taught her most of the things she knows, but she also likes to try new recipes. She's a big fan of the Pioneer Woman and this is one of her favorite cookbooks.

6) Jada sleeps in a four-poster bed together with at least a hundred stuffed animals. She's been collecting them ever since she was a little girl.

7) Jada loves Sanrio and her favorite character is My Melody.

8) Jada likes being outdoors. She often goes on a hiking trip. She's met our mutual friend Stella on a forum. Stella was looking for a survival buddy to bring along on a week long trip in the mountains and Jada replied to her post. They decided to go as soon as they could and have been friends for years now.
9) Jada has a lot of eye shadow palettes. This one from Cargo is her latest purchase.

10) Because her ex-boyfriend Oliver didn't want her to work Jada hasn't got much work experience. She now has a job as an executive secretary, but she's quite old fashioned. If a man would sweep her off her feet and there is enough income for her to stay at home, she won't hesitate to do so. Her biggest wish is to have at least four children.
