Christmas is coming closer and closer so I decided to make a little Christmas Wednesday Wishlist! First of all I would love to have a sparkly holiday outfit for New Years with a matching pair of heels. So I picked this cute playsuit from Boohoo.com, out of stock right now :(, and the pumps with golden stars from KG Kurt Geiger (through ASOS.com) !
As make-up you can go for a berry red lipstick but personally I would love to add a little bit of pink / nude colors to the look so I picked up two nice Limited Edition holiday sets from MAC! Find these items on MACCosmetics.nl and order before they are sold out
I love accessories with a meaning and so I am in love with all the products os NOOSA Amsterdam. At the moment they have a new collection which has a more raw and edgy feel because of all the studs. This bag is one of their newest items from the Studded collection and I just love it! You can personalize NOOSA Amsterdam products by picking different chunks to put on a bag, belt, purse or bracelet. All the chunks have a meaning so you can tell your story and pick chunks which have a deeper meaning to you.
The silver Coexist bangle from KarmaMantra also has a lovely meaning. A perfect bracelet in light of the Christmas spirit if you ask me! This bangle has symbols of different religions and beliefs in it and stands for friendship and living together although there are differences between these religions. I have always been really interested in different religions and their rules / stories, so for me this bangle is a real musthave!
Last but not least are the gorgeous timeless watches from Daniel Wellington, I think you all know them and well, I think everybody loves this brand! The watches are just gorgeous and have the perfect amount of fashion and functionality together. In my eyes you can never go wrong with such a classy and timeless piece like one of these watches. What do you think? Get yourself one at DanielWellington.com
Of course Christmas is not about gifts, but a girl can dream right?! My biggest wish right now actually is to find my dreamjob and to be able to add a cat and a dog to my family hihi. What is your biggest Christmas wish?

Today’s outfit is all about the hat, well and all the other pretty items of course, but the hat is the touch needed for this look to succeed. I put my hat on and when I do so I feel like a real lady. So ‘Hats up’, here is a bit more info about this boho-ladylike outfit!
Ever since I saw this fluffy H&M knit I needed to have it, but faith was working against me and so I actually had this same knitted sweater already for 4 times until I finally found one that was the right size and without defects. I decided to pair the long knit with my favorite faux leather leggings because well the combination just looks really pretty in my humble opinion. To add something special I went for ladylike and boho accessories such as the hat, jewelry, bag and of course the burgundy boots.
What I love about this look is that you can see the different styles coming together in the middle of the outfit. The top half is more lady like, feminine, mature and classy, while the bottom half, thanks to the boots in combination with the legging, is more boho. And well the knitted sweater is a little bit of both if you ask me.
The knitted sweater and faux leather leggings are both from H&M, as well as the wool hat, necklace from Primark, earrings from Zara, bracelets and ring from BLQE jewelry, velt bag from Otra-Parte and boots from Ecco.
I am so madly in love with this hat and the other accessories used in this outfit. What is your favorite accessory of this look?

Christmas is right around the corner and that means that it is time to get a bit festive! Today I filled in a tag about how I see Christmas, with of course some of my Christmas favorites!
If you want you are very welcome to fill in this tag yourself! Let me know if you did so I can read it, because I would really love to. Here it is, the serendipity Christmas tag (combined by multiple Christmas tags by yours truly).
What is your favorite holiday movie?
Ooh hard one, I think the Muppets Christmas Carrol. It reminds me of my childhood and Christmas moments with my parents and little brother!
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Probably, yes, but to be honest I can not remember. I do know that every year I am getting my hopes up again for a white Christmas as it just adds a little bit more magic to the whole holiday, don’t you think?
Where do you like to spend your Christmas?
With family, loved ones and dear friends. It doesn’t really matter where, if it is my place or someone else’s as long as we can celebrate this holiday together.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
I have tons of favorite Christmas songs haha. I really love Last Christmas from Wham!, Thank God it’s Christmas, All I want for Christmas (of course this one also belongs on this list), Little drummer boy and a lot more of which I probably don’t know the song title haha. I just love Christmas songs!
Do you like to stay in your PJ’s or dress up for Christmas?
Chilling in my PJ’s on Christmas evening and dressing up for Christmas and boxing day of course. Christmas is the ultimate holiday to dress up!
Do you open your presents on Christmas eve or on Christmas morning?
I actually did not grow up with giving presents at Christmas, since in Holland we always do this with Sinterklaas which is on the fifth of December. The last couple of years we started giving presents and depending on wear we are and who we are with we open them on Christmas evening or Christmas morning.
Read on for the rest of this Serendipity Christmas tag! Hope you like it

Last week I went to the opening event of the new Primark store in the Hague. I had not been to a Primark opening for a while so I was really really curious about the new store. Well the store proved the trip to the Hague worthwhile. The Primark from the Hague is just amazing!
After opening the Primark store in Eindhoven last year the Primark kept focussing on a more fashion atmosphere in the store. With this newest store they outdone themself I think. The store looked gorgeous, had a great overview and was well decorated. I was a bit amazed to be honest and I really loved shopping in this great new store!
The event started with a yummy breakfast, Christmas style of course, and after a little walk through the store the shopping spree could begin! Together with Taria-Ann from Frunettte we walked through the store for I think 1,5 hours. We started at the ground floor with ladies fashion, went totally upstairs to check out the home department and afterwards shopped some accessories on the first floor.
I saw some really cool things, like the pretty embellished clutches and box clutches. During this morning I scored 1 really fluffy cardigan (which I totally adore) and two sweaters. I also bought some lovely fragrance candles from the home department. A shoplog will follow soon as I did a lot of shopping lately!
Are you going to visit the new Primark the Hague anytime soon?

It’s getting colder, wetter and darker every day and this makes outfit shooting not the easiest blogging job there is. Maybe I should toughen up a little bit, getting somewhat stronger and learning to appreciate the cold?! For this look I decided that joining the army might be a good idea to conquer this winter weather haha
With the cold weather my wardrobe changes as well, of course it does! But I still try to combine items to create looks that show my mood and show how I want to come across. In this look there are a couple things I want to show you about winter fashion. Things I want to do to inspire you to dress up and show people the best version of yourself! First of all I want to tell you that layering up is great, but you should not try to hide yourself and your body within tons of sweaters. I myself feel better about myself when I am showing some of my curves, when you can see a bit of my body shape. This makes me feel more confident! For this body shape, a pair of heels (short of tall) can make a huge difference as well. When wearing heels I feel like I can conquer the world!
Besides this, stocking up on some fashionable fluffy sweaters is also a must, as I have seen a lot of really pretty once this year, while last year I could not find any!
In this outfit I am wearing a sweater by NIKKIE Plessen, Army pants from H&M, DUO leather boots, Baby G sports watch, Vans shoulderbag.
A comfy yet strong and sexy outfit is what I was going for and I am really curious to find out what you all think of this look! And what do you think of my new watch?! I will tell you some more about it later
