S: Hi, my name is Sanne.
M: And I’m Marije.
And we are the authors of 2BLOOM!
M: We’re two friends from Utrecht who can always laugh together.
S: We both go to the same University and live in Utrecht. We became friends in the first week that we met, and since then we’ve not left each others sides. We look at the world and society in the same way and we can really be amazed by the beauty and strangeness of this world.
M: I love Sanne because she’s always very enthusiastic and an overall passionate person. If she really likes something, she will give it all and sometimes even lose herself in it. She’s also one of the sweetest persons I know and makes sure that nobody ever feels excluded.
S: Marije is a very spontaneous and cheerful girl. She’s very honest, which I really do admire. And she tends to come up with the most refreshing and amazing ideas. Marije has a wonderful view on the world and she really makes me feel comfortable (and that doesn’t only apply to me).
M: The idea for our blog was very spontaneous. We just happened to talk about both secretly wanting to start a blog and we started brainstorming right away.
S: We don’t really want to talk about make-up and stuff, just because we’re not experts at it and there are many other wonderful blogs about make-up.
M: We started writing about the daily things that you don’t think about that quickly, and at the same time we provided entertainment and cool tips. That’s why 2Think and 2Entertain became part of our brand. We wanted to talk about summerly ideas, beautiful photography and sweet drinks. But also about why there are some things in this world that are actually pretty weird.
S: But then we both started to travel and we wanted to keep each other updated about all the adventures we experienced. We decided that if we were going to write to each other, it might as wel be on the blog. We are still both students, so we mostly travel on a shoestring and we don’t want to only talk about the places we are going but also everybody we meet and what is happening to us during our time away.
M: For two years we saw each other daily and now we will be apart for half a year. And after we come back it doesn’t mean that we will be together again all the time. So we better tell you guys what we see, hear and feel on our forgein travels.
S: 2BLOOM stands for coming out of your shell and literally blooming. The travels we will make and our time as students give us the opportunity to find ourselfs and Bloom. So it is a personal titel that we both relate to. We found that a lot of people around us are continuasly looking for something and in search of a meaning.
M: The letters we write to each other are pretty personal and they are always true and our honest opinions. And if we don’t necessarily agree on something, than we’ll use that too!
S: Exactly. And what you guys have to say about certain topics and our adventures is also something we’d really like to know! We’re always open for sharing ideas and broadening horizons.
M: Do you want to know more about us? Don’t be afraid to sent us an email!
S: Have fun reading our blog!
