It’s been exactly a month since my birthday and I’m only now doing my haul. This post is way overdue, but I do have a good reason for it. I always get these wonderful gifts from my family which I’m very thankful for. But they also always give me some money and I usually go online immediately and order a bunch of stuff. I basically wanted to wait with writing this post until everything I ordered had arrived and now that’s finally the case, except for one thing, but I can live with that.
The Flash – season one
I’m starting with something that I didn’t get for my birthday. I actually bought this one a few days before my birthday, because I still had a gift card that would soon expire. As I’ve said in a recent post, I’m really excited about watching The Flash, but I’m first going to catch up on Arrow in order to watch that universe in the correct chronological order.
Marshall Major II headphones
Music is very important to me. I listen everyday and that requires some good headphones. I used to listen with the earbuds that I got when I bought my phone, but it was time to buy something better. And when I saw these Marshall headphones being discounted, I immediately knew that I wanted them. These headphones deliver great sound and are comfortable to wear.

I’m here again with another haul. It’s been a while since my last one, mainly because I haven’t bought that much lately which you’ll probably notice from the items I’m mentioning in this post. I can very well change the title of this post to My favourites as these aren’t necessarily things that I buy to keep. I’m saying that because there’s food on this list.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – season 1
I bought and watched this quite a while ago, but this is still something that’s on my mind sometimes. I’ve been wanting to watch the second season, but I haven’t really gotten to it yet. The first one was hilarious and caught me off-guard. Sure, I sometimes thought it was getting too quirky, but then it just carried on and I didn’t mind it. Ellie Kemper is exquisite as the main character and seriously makes you believe that she isn’t familiar with things nowadays. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go watch this series, because it’ll be weird if I try to explain it. I recommend this series to everyone who likes quirkiness with a lot of heart. Being written by Tina Fey should be enough to win you over, if you’re a fan of this kind of humour.

As I do everyday, I go online and do some irrelevant things like spending way too much time on Tumblr, tweet useless bits of information about my life and look at other people’s photos on Instagram. Every now and then I also tend to buy a few things when I’m at it.
So here’s what I’ve ordered recently.
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
I wanted to read something of Christie for a long time. It’s probably one of her most famous books and I thought would fit well as a start in the series of Hercule Poirot. If it turns out that I like this book, I’ll definitely pick up more of her books and start from the actual first book.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Since watching Parks and Recreation, I’ve become a fan of Amy Poehler. She is extremely funny and has done some amazing work in comedy. I’m looking forward to reading this one as it’ll be something completely else than the books I’ve already read and I hope it’s going to be quite funny.

Is it normal that I am sad as well as happy that the holidays are over? Christmas and New Year’s Eve are a wonderful time and I always enjoy being around my family, but it’s also a really busy time to be honest. I had to go to several parties and in between those I had to study. Yes, you read that right, here in Belgium we have to study during the holiday break. We have a rather unpleasant system where the finals take place after our holiday break (hurray Belgium). So not that great of a time actually. An upper side about it is that we do have some time off afterwards.
That aside I do am glad about all the presents my family gave me. Here are all the gifts they got me.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I am very excited to read this book. It’s highly praised by the book community and is named one of the best thrillers of 2015. So yeah, this will probably be my next read! It’s also being adapted into a movie with an amazing cast, so we have that to look forward to.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Also one of the best thrillers of recent years, so definitely a must-read. I have heard so many good things about this one that I just can’t get any more excited to read it. As people are calling The Girl on the Train the new Gone Girl must mean something, right.
