Sinterklaas 08

What a joy it is to have a 2th grade in 'Sinterklaas'-time. The children are SO SO SO excited and crazy. Even a little bit afraid and hyperactive.

2 weeks long we tinkered, practised poems, sang songs, told stories about  the Sint. It was great. Friday the 5th of December, the Sint came to our class for a visit and some candy. Later that day we had a Sint-Karaoke and a theater of the Sint who lost his memory.

Loved it!

Weekly Beauty 6: Ann Van Elsen

This week:

Ann Van Elsen (29 y.o.) 


A verrrry beautiful Belgian woman who has her own opinion and style.

Ann Van Elsen is a model and TV personality from Mol (Antwerp) in Belgium. She was crowned Miss Belgium in 2002.

After finishing her Marketing studies, she obtained her Masters degree in the Commercial Sciences in 2006. Yes, a beauty with brains!

Van Elsen first appeared on the cover of P-magazine when that magazine had chosen a photograph of a reader to appear on the cover. This inspired her to enter beauty pageants like Miss Antwerp, Miss Belgium and Miss Universe.

In 2002 Ann won both the Miss Antwerp and Miss Belgium contest. This allowed her entrance to the Miss World and Miss Universe competitions.
But she  is refused to participate in the Miss World election in Nigeria in 2002, in protest of the conviction of Amina Lawal.

On television, Ann Van Elsen has presented several programs on Belgian channels TV1 and VT4, including Mediamadammen, Huizenjacht, Onder Hoogspanning, De Brandkast, Supertalent In Vlaanderen and Summerdate. In June 2005 Van Elsen signed an exclusive television contract with VT4, where she performed the tasks of an in-vision continuity announcer and hosted several other tv-shows as well.
For two years Van Elsen regularly appeared on the TV1 music show Het Swingpaleis, where she was assigned as the team captain.

Van Elsen appeared in the January 2008 edition of 'PlayBoy'. She only accepted the shoot if 'Playboy' would donate the coverage fee to 'Music For Life', a goodwill initiative of the local radio station Studio Brussels.

Ann Van Elsen is married to famous Belgian soccer player Gunther Van Handenhoven, who is the brother of Sandrine Van Handenhoven, a famous singer, who gained her fame by ending fourth in Idool 2004.

Weekly Beauty 4: Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley


This week two ladies because I think they look so much the same:                      

Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley (27 and 23 y.o.) 


Can you see a difference?

They have both really beautiful faces, both had short hair, long hair and still were lovely women.

Now, I'll discuss them separately.


Natalie Portman is an Israelii-American actress. She began her career in the early 1990s, turning down the opportunity to become a child model in favor of acting. Her first role came in the 1994 independent film Léon (a recommend!).

She became well known when she was cast as "Padmé Amidala" in the Star Wars trilogy. Other movies: Closer, The Other Boleyn Girl, V for Vendetta etc..

Portman completed a bachelor's degree in psychology at Harvard College while she was working on the Star Wars films.

I like a lot of the movies she played in. She's an amazing actress, hope to see much more of her talent soon!

Keira Knightley is an English film and television actress. She began her career as a child and came to international prominence in 2003 after co-starring in the films Bend It Like Beckham and Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.

Knightley has appeared in several other Hollywood films like Love Actually, The Jacket, King Arthur, Atonement, The Duchess etc..

She is involved with Rupert Friend.

She has denied rumors she is anorexic, although after her appearance at the Pirates of the Caribbean premiere led to media speculation that her extremely slender figure was due to an eating disorder, she noted that her family has a history of anorexia.

Knightley is a lifelong supporter of football team West Ham United F.C. and watches games in her local pub whenever possible.

With this subject I want to break the cliché that all the women are jealous of and can't stand eachother. Yes, there are a a looooot of women that are cute and lovely. But there aren't many women that are REALLY beautiful.. (I know you man think differently..) 

This week:

I think her best qualities are her eyes and her young charisma.

Cameron Michelle Díaz is an American actress and former model. In August 2008,  Diaz was the highest paid actress in Hollywood.

She also dated some famous man like Matt Dillon, Jared Leto and  Justin Timberlake. Gossips tell that she and Jude Law Weekly Hottie 10! make a couple.
