At the Ganbaroo showroom
TGIF, happy Friday lovely followers!
Last week has been pretty hectic and so I have been running around from home to Amsterdam and back again. Strolling around Amsterdam for two whole days on Tuesday and Thursday, but boy I had some fun!
This past week it was time for the PR madness with all the PR showrooms having their pressdays. I always love seeing the new collections for upcoming season and make some pictures of items I really like. It’s also great to finally meet the people behind the email contact 😉
Of course I don’t want to spill too much beans but what I noticed for the upcoming Fall/Winter seasons where lots of knitted items. And, most important to me, pastels are here to stay, even during the next fall/winter season, yay! 😀
The first showroom I went to was the showroom from Ganbaroo (photo above). I saw a gorgeous piece from Dennis Diem, tried out the SLA teabar, pretty clutch and belts, gorgeous lingerie from Love Stories, a selfie and some gorgeous embellished garments.
Curious to see and read more?
Last Friday I was invited to join the Nelly High Heels party in my own city Eindhoven. I had already heard and read good things about this party so when Styletoday.nl asked me to make a report on the evening of course I said yes! With my camera, iPhone, high heels (naturally) and party mode on I hopped on my bike and went to cafe Thomas. (Although I had some problems with my DSLR settings my iPhone worked perfectly, yay!)
When I arrived at cafe Thomas I was super happy that I didn’t had to stand in the line, since the line of people waiting outside was HUGE. A lot of people wanted to be early since the first 100 visitors would not only get a free pair of Nelly shoes, they also would get an enormous goodiebag! Everyone from the first 100 visitors made a top three of their favorite Nelly heels and within 2 to 5 weeks these heels will be delivered. My first choice? The heels you can see above, not super high but this looks just like a perfect shoe to me! I need it hihi.
Around 21:30 the lucky 100 could start to make their top 3’s, later when everyone was inside Fred van Leer (the most cool and funny stylist from the Netherlands imho) told us about the prices everyone could win, how everything worked and of course he told everyone to have fun and dance the night away. The assignment was to make a cool picture which showed your love for high heels (I immediately was busy being creative, making cool pictures and editing them on my phone haha) but unfortunately the connection was not so good. Finally Fred van Leer decided to draw three names out of a bowl. The prices you could win? Sopping money at Nelly €120 or €60, or a SONY smart lens for your iPhone. Of course the lucky winners where very happy with their price!
The party was super fun and everything was very well organized. There even was a chocolat fondue where you could dip in marshmallows or biscuits, yumm ^^
Well let’s just take a look at my pictures shall we?

I am back again, thanks to a huge stomach flu I could not sit behind my computer for a couple of days, mehhh 😉 Luckily I am feeling way better and this afternoon I am going to shoot outfit photos with Kelly from We Heart Fashion! New outfit’s, finally! 😀
Now for this blogpost, last night the 86th annual Academy Awards took place. I actually had planned to do a live blogging session, how cool would that have been?! But because of the flu I had I was just to tired. Hopefully next year I can live blog since I would really like to keep you guys updated 24/7… Of course I am still going to write about the Oscars and that will be this blogpost. In this blogpost I am going to report on almost everything I can report about. First the red carpet, who was best dressed and who had the worst outfit, the performances, the group selfie and of course the Oscar winners!
Are you curious / excited / eager to hear my opinion? Wait no longer and click that read more button, this blogpost is going to be EPIC! (And pretty long I guess….)
Hi lovely followers,
How are you all doing? I am doing pretty great, my week has been super busy so far! On wednesday I went to Amsterdam for the ilovefashionbloggers New Years drink and I shot some outfit photos with the lovely Nathalie. Yesterday I finally started my course in Fashion Journalism! But first I went to Fresh Communications in the World Fashion Centre in Amsterdam since they hosted a fashion bloggers event. I was way early since my course started at the time the event started but the lovely people from Fresh Communications were so kind to let me stop by and even join their styling contest!! Very cool 😀
For the styling contest we had to style a look with some of our favorite items from their showroom full of awesome brands. I really love love loved the bags from La Liek, but the teal colored one was definitely my favorite. Immediatly I had some ideas in my mind and I must say with the different brands I made a look which I would definitely wear during the spring / summer. 🙂
I am wearing a black dress with lace details from Fornarina, heels from Fornarina, cardigan from Comma, bag from La Liek and the watch is from the Casio Sheen collection. I don’t really have a favorite item in this look since I love every single item so much, the fashion pieces are all just gorgeous!
Thanks Fresh for the nice meeting!
What do you guys think of my look? Please let me know in a comment and if you love it please like my Instagram pictures as well: Photo 1 & Photo 2
Last Wednesday I went to Amsterdam in the evening for a lovely meet-up with fellow bloggers, the girls from ilovefashionbloggers and Blog and the City. The meet-up was in BAUT a nice urban-feel restaurant / café!
I already knew most of the people at the event, but it was nice to just have fun with them and talk to them in a slight other fashion than on a PR event. Also I met some nice bloggers which I did not know beforehand and we all had a lot of fun with each other! The ‘borrel’ was very well organized and we made some fun pictures, which you might have seen on Instagram this week. I also enjoyed finally meeting Jolique with whom I have already had a lot of email contact! I love her view on fashionbloggers and the reason why she set up ilovefashionbloggers!
We even made a funny congratulations video for ilovefashionbloggers since they have hit the 60k likes on Facebook, that’s HUGE! I hope you like the photos and the video! And don’t forget to check out my profile on ilovefashionbloggers and give me a rating!
For now, happy saturday! xo
