Only one and a half days, a handful of hours and some minutes left before PARIS! This weekend, my lovebirdy parents have been married for twenty five years (can I get a 'whut whut'?!) and decided they wanted to celebrate this with their three daughter. Which I, if you had not come to that conclusion yet, am one of.

A true love weekend with the family. Je t'aime, J'adore, bisous and a lot more!

I often feel like I'm torn between two worlds: one where all ladies wear patterns and have their nails painted in bright colors, and one where black and white are the main colors and minimalism is key. Usually when life throws one of these 'pick or choose' situations at you, you actually have to choose. (Which I can now tell you already I can never do as I please because the inability to make decisions - any kind - is one of my worst flaws). Luckily the ever-changing world of fashion let's us steer our own wheel and therefore enables us to like, wear and show off anything we want to - on the one condition that you feel good about wearing it. So here we are now, and god knows how much I love bright red nails, white embellished shorts and pink embroidered jackets but all I can do for now is look at these items and envisioning them hanging in my closet.

It took a while, but it has finally arrived: my Team Paris sweatshirt. At first I was afraid that I would receive the delayed package in the midst of summer. Twenty some degrees and me wearing my black sweatshirt. Dream on Sabine! I of course could have known that it would stay chilly for a while longer, so on behalf of my Team Paris sweatshirt I thank the weather for this!

One of the best (and cheapest) ways of spending time is entering in your internet address bar, hitting enter and being introduced into the world of fashion inspiration. StyleSaint is definitely on my hitlist when it comes to filling my head with newborn inspiration! Warning: once you have found your way around this website, you will not be able to keep your eyes off of your Macbook Pro screen (or Toshiba, Dell, whatever suits you best of course). Get your camping gear out - snuggy, food resources, a can of diet coke and possibly a tooth brush in case it gets late - sit back and let the visuals do their work.

Just when I felt that I was ready to kiss the everlasting traffic cone that sits on my head goodbye, the weather forecast tells me differently. It is mid-March and we are up for yet another cold treat. So keep those traffic cones steady for a bit longer and let's hope for a better start of April!

Leandra from the Man Repeller once said (or actually many times) said: 'don't take yourself so seriously!' So here I am, shakin' mah pom pom (read: moving forwards and backwards). Very much So You Think You Can Dance material right?

What do you think? On to the next round?

The perfect start of Springtime, that is what yesterday felt like. Sunny, the temperature was bearable and with your face in the sun even very pleasant I admit, kids playing outside with their jackets off (even though in my opinion this was intentionally provoking the weather gods I understood the temptation of taking it all off because in Holland you never know when the sun is coming back after all) and accordingly to my friend the air even smelt like Spring (which again I thought was a quite strange thing to say since I did not smell anything but scentless air, but maybe I'm just a bad sniffer). Thus, the perfect start of Springtime. Until, after I cheerfully set one foot inside the house, my roommate sneered the words: 'It's supposed to freeze again next week.' And there it was, the crushing of the perfect start of Springtime. Thank you kids for provoking the weather gods! Those jeans shorts will have to remain seated in the closet for a bit longer and I guess my leopard coat will still be my BF for the upcoming days/weeks/months/years (as I said, in Holland you never know when the sun will make its return).

Even though I am - or was actually - not a big earring person myself (love them but hardly ever wear them), ear cuffs have more than caught my attention. Or more specifically, my ears' attention. Such a rock 'nd roll-chic way of jewelling up your ears!
