Bloglovers, Bloglovin!


How has your weekend been? I'm back in Holland and enjoying a real Dutch rainy Sunday. Just what I needed to detox from my fabulous week in Austria. Now I read all these comments about the appearance of Google Friend Connect, so I decided to do something about this before it's too late and I will lose all of my dear followers! :)

So bloglovers, if you want to stay updated, start Bloglovin!

Bye bye Austria!

And that's it already, it' s wrap! Our week in ski paradise is over. In about two hours we will be driving back home. We had so so (!) much fun this week! The people we were with, the atmosphere, the skiing, the great landscape, the good foods and drinks... *SIGH*. Sunday I will be staying at my parents place for one more day and then I am heading back to Amsterdam. Back to school. Back to reality!

What are your plans for next week?


P.S. I know I haven't uploaded many outfit posts (due to my skiing trip), but as soon as I get back I will start on doing that again!

All white inspiration

Even though I have come to LOVE (!) the pastel colors (a definite must for the upcoming spring/summer), I cannot help but loving all white outfits. I don't know if it's the white covered mountains here in Austria that make me feel inspired by all the whites or if it's just the fact that I am dying for spring time to arrive so we can wear more light clean colors. The combination of different white pieces (preferably a combination of different textures) just has this dreamy feel to it. Great summer look, especially with some tanned legs to go with it!

What do you think?


P.S. I have promised myself to not forget my camera tomorrow when I go skiing. I definitely need to take some more pictures so I can upload these on here after my week of fun in the snow!

P.P.S. I noticed that today is the one month anniversary of my blog. WHEUHOOW! I want to thank everyone that has been so kind to check out my blog or has been following me in the past month. The blogging had been great and I will definitely keep on doing this enthusiastically, so stay tuned! :) Thank you loves!

Welcome to ski paradise

Day one of my trip and already an update! I have to admit, I am pretty proud of myself! After a ten hour roadtrip we arrived in Austria. Amazing how well the trip went. No traffic jams, no delays, no nothing! This is the third time we are staying at this place, and I am still amazed about the way the hotel looks. Great atmosphere! I just got an order to put on my ski clothing so we can make our first appearance on the mountain tops, so I better get going! The weather is great, snow is everywhere and everyone seems to be in a more than good mood. Skiing day number one, let's do this!

Dream on, Doze off

A few weeks ago my friend Rosanna asked me to model for a photography assigment for school. She had to make three portraits and the theme she choose was 'dreaming away'. Her boyfriend, one of her close friends and I were the lucky ones. Daydreaming is something I am really good at. REALLY good at! (I practise this at school and during studying, so you could say I am a pro!) This are two of the many pictures she took. Dreamy right?

Tonight I will leave for Austria. I am going on a skiiing trip with my family! I will try to upload at least a few posts!

Have a dreamy weekend loves!

Well hello there!

The snow is gone, the ice melted. Now only a bit more sun and a rising temperature and Sping is here! Or is that a bit too optimistic now? All the pastelcolors hanging in the stores just make me really happy. Today I am wearing my new minty jumper. I totally fell in love with it!

What do you think?


P.S. I want to gives my special wishes to my good friend Esther, who left for South America last night. She is going to travel for half a year and gave all of us a wish ribbons when we said goodbye at the airport. The three knots you tie in there all represent one wish. When the ribbon falls off, your wishes will come true. So let's hope it will come off soon!

Happy belated Valentine's Day!

It's a bit late, but not less sincere: happy Valentine's Day! To all of you who have boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, fiances or lovers (did I forget anything or anyone?): I hope you have had a day full of roses, kisses and what not. To all of you who are single: ROCK ON!

Snowboots or peeptoes?

Wake up, wake up! Another icy Sunday is waiting for us here in Amsterdam! I took these pictures last week, just because I thought all the iced up waters looked so pretty. The sight of the white covered land is for sure beautiful, BUT.. this gets old fast. At least, the cold gets old fast. I feel like the taste of sunlotion, the smell of burned skin, oh and don't forget the afternoon get-togethers in the park accompanied by a glass of cold wine and gitar music played by an unknown stranger a few feet away. But then on the other hand I can't wait to go on our skiing trip to Austria next week. Hopefully this will kind of be the best of both worlds: lots op snow covered mountains and a bright shining sun!

What about you? What do you think? Will we be wearing skirts and peeptoes soon, or will we have to buckle up and get ready for an icy ride?

Have a great Sunday everyone!

My oh my, it is Friday already. It feels like this week just flew by, don't you think? I have to go to school in a little bit. Show the brainstorming work I did for the fotoshoot and follow this new Production of Culture course I am starting today. A productive Friday I would say! This weekend I am going to spend some time with my sister, she lives in Amsterdam as well. We have not seen each other that much lately, so we can definitely use some sister bonding time! What are your plans for the weekend?

I wore this outfit yesterday. I love the simple chic look (e.g. wearing a blouse or sheer top and a blazer). Combine this with some high heels and skinny jeans or edge it up with some leather and you are all set!

What do you think?

Mr. Chocolate

Today I received this cute box of chocolate from the mom of the kids I babysit. Just something small because they appreciate me so much, HOW SWEET? The only bad thing that comes with chocolate is the fact that I want to eat it all. Within ten seconds. And so I did haha. This once again proves that my relationship with chocolate is a very, very tricky one! I want it, but then again I don't. Mr. Chocolate. Us ladies are very confusing right?

Sweet dreams!

Hi there, snowangels!

How has your week been so far? We are halfway down already! I have been to school (next to my styling at  the Vogue Academy, my Theatre Sciences studies at the University have also started again. BOEHOE!) and I have been babsitting, nothing spectacular I am afraid.

Today, I met up with Sarah, a friend of mine whom I have not seen for a long time (up til today). After our little tea chitchat we wandered around in the H&M. Luckily Sarah was not too enthusiastic about buying anything, otherwise I would have probably not been able to restrain myself. Typical.

These pictures were taken by my roommates school (the Amsterdam Fashion Institute). It might not seem that way on the pictures, but I have to admit that I have been a bit (maybe a lot) cold today. Wearing shorts while it is pretty much freezing might not be the best idea, but hey: 'If one wants to be beautiful, one must suffer!'

Keep those legs warm dears, and enjoy the rest of your day!

Good afternoon loves!

How has your weekend been? Did you stay inside all weekend or did you go out to have some snow fun? I did a little of both. I met up with many of my friends. We haven't been seeing each other that much lately because we all have been busy, so I have been 'restoring' friendships the past few days! (And as you can tell, lots of food was involved!) Today I have to start drawing and making moodboards for school. I am a bit behind with my schoolwork and I am planning on making sure that this is not the case anymore by tomorrow! So I better get going!

Have a good first day of the week! 


1. Last week, when it just started to snow a little. By now there is a lot more snow covering bits and pieces of Amsterdam already! 2. Sushi and champagne! I went over to my friend's house to catch up. She got us some champagne and we ordered sushi in, hmmm! 3. Rosanna and I went to this place called 'My aunt's pie'. Their decoration is adorable (think of girly girl, and multiply it by ten!) and they have great cakes and pies! We shared the applepie and the cheesecake, delicious! 4. Amsterdam covered in snow! This picture was taken nearby my apartment. 5. I spent the night at one of my friend's places in the centre of Amsterdam, nearby the Dam Square. This was the afternoon view: bright sunrays shining on the rooftops of Amsterdam. 6. Last night four of my friends and I went out for diner. We had cheesefondue at a place called 'Flower'. I could literally drink pans full of cheesefondue (well maybe that's just a bit too enthusiastic!), that's how much I love it!

Sundays are all about taking is easy, so that is exactly what I will be doing today. I just woke up a while ago and have to babysit in a little bit. Before I go there I am going to make myself a soy latte. Starting the day off right! Tonight I am going out for dinner with four of my really good friends. It is the perfect cold weather for some cheese fondue, hmmm!

Do you have any plans yet? Happy Sunday everyone!

Well goodmorning dears! Today, I decided to surrender! Strongly believing in spring to arrive soon makes me look a little crazy when it's minus a whole lot degrees outside. I have to admit that the sun makes up for a lot though. Blue skies and sunny smiles make me forget my nose is freezing off when I'm outside for more than five minutes! So keep up the good work mister Sunman!

This picture was taken two days ago, in the park. I love wearing this green oversized blazer! It looks great already by simply wearing a plain t-shirt underneath it and some jeans to go with it. Because of the cold however, I decided to wear this silver toned sweater. The green and the silver go well together, I think!

I  hope you like it! Have a great cold but sunny day!
