A story to remember: The tattooist of Auschwitz

The tattooist of Auschwitz - De tatoeëerder van Auschwitz

It’s a random Monday evening when I decide to read a book that I’ve saved for this time of the year. 2 hours and 130 pages later, I put the book away. Reluctantly. This is the kind of book that I would like to read in one night, but there’s another workday coming up. The next Sunday I have no appointments and I finish the book in another 3 hours. When I am finished I have mixed feelings. On one hand it’s one of the most beautiful stories I have read in a long time and on the other hand, I’ve just had a detailed glimpse of some of the most black pages in history.

retro style winter coat

When winter time hits, I always get mixed feelings. I love Christmas time and the lovely decorations that cheer up the night in December and all the “top xxx hits of all time” programs. However, I dislike the absence of light that starts around 4PM in winter. But…what I dislike most is the cold, especially in combination with rain and wind.

Oriental Spice and some Chocolate Modern Vintage Gal Birthday

Autumn. The time when the leaves start falling on te ground. It rains and rains some more and…it’s also the time when I celebrate that I am officially getting older again! My birthday was on a Monday. As a personal tradition, I usually take the day off for some (family +) me time, but due to circumstances for the first time in my career, I went to work on my birthday. I celebrated my birthday on Monday evening with my family, but I have to say, I really like my personal tradition… On the Friday after, I went for dinner and drinks with some family members and friends in a very vintage meets present restaurant. So what does a Modern Vintage Gal get for her birthday? Check out a few lovely Modern Vintage gifts I received this year!
