Event: GLOW 2013 in Eindhoven


Goodmorning everyone, 

At the moment I am just heading out to the Primark store opening in Eindhoven! But first I would really like to share some of my favorite pictures my boyfriend made at the GLOW event in Eindhoven. GLOW is a festival all about lights and art which returns to the city every year. As usual I have seen some amazing things, sometimes the things you can do with lights are really spectacular!

In this photos you can see some of my most favorite projects from the GLOW route ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a lovely day and to the Brabanders reading my blog, I’ll see you today?!

1. At the 3 Dol Dwaze Dagen in the Dutch luxury warehouse… To buy or not to buy… I really like the nailpolishes from KOH, however as a jobless / non-student person I really was looking for a better bargain… So, I did not buy them… But I am on the look out for a better price to buy the left and right KOH nailpolishes which are from the Galaxy Limited Edition set. 
2. One of the gifts from my mom was this Buddha statue for in the living room, I love it! <3 

3. Homemade apple-pie!! Together with my boyfriend I made this pie to surprise my family at my birthday, everyone loved it! Mission accomplished! ๐Ÿ˜‰

7. Sometimes when I am going to an event I want to be in Amsterdam earlier to meet up or to take outfit photos, last week was a day like that. Unfortunately it was raining very heavily that day so we just went out to grab a nice semi-healthy sandwich at the Cheesefactory.
8. Audrey Hepburn quotes are just the best haha. I think this just does not need more explanation… does it?
9. And last but not least, a detail shot from one of my latest looks. 

Well I hope you enjoyed this Insta-throwback! Have a nice weekend!

Insta-throwback September


Hi dear followers,

September has been an amazing month, a lot of lovely sunny days, blogger events, fun with my boyfriend and more! From now on I will post some of the, in my humble opinion, coolest personal Instagram shots with you on the first day of the new month. The new Insta-trowback, how I will name it, focuses on what I did in the last month. Most of the pictures will be from Instagram, since it’s an Insta-throwback, but I will also like iPhone photos and photos from events (if I got them later then the blogpost about the event). 

I hope you will like this new monthly Instagram blogpost! Please let me know what you think in the comments! Click on read more for a little bit of info about the pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy saturday everyone! More than a week ago I went to a very cool bloggerevent from Olympus! Most of the pictures in this blogpost are made with several Olympus camera’s, of course! Not only by me but also by Wendy from FabulousStyleWS and Anite from Fashion Attacks the blog. At the event we got the change to test many different Olympus body’s, camera lenses and even compact camera’s! The select group of bloggers at the event, including me, where actually on of the first people ever to try out the Olympus OMD E-M1! 

We also got same great photography tips and trics from fashion photographer Brendan de Clercq and he accompanied us while trying out the Olympus camera’s on the streets of Amsterdam! He even made some nice shots of me, but for a random reason I don’t seem to have them anymore. I guess I should send him an email with the question if he happens to still have these pictures, fingers crossed! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow, such a picture overload haha! I certainly had a great day at Olympus, very cool to try out the newest Olympus camera’s and of course being around fellow bloggers and photography addicts! The Olympus camera’s (OMD E-M1 and the Olympus PEN camera’s included) all have very cool functionalities, for example all the filters we used in the different photos. Besides that you also have a storymode where you can take several pictures and place them multiple frames. In the end Olympus won me over and now I have a little bit of a problem since my back account won’t let me buy one haha. Thank you Olympus for having me, it was a lovely day!!

If you think this is all, wait for the outfit post about what I wore this particular day! 
Hope you liked this blogpost! ๐Ÿ™‚

Event: VOGUE Fashion’s Night Out


Photos by me, Anita & Wendy

Goodmorning lovely followers!

Last week I attended the VOGUE Fashion’s Night Out in Amsterdam and I really had a great time! During the evening I met a lot of fellow bloggers, did some (window) shopping and besides that I also got to know some new brands / shops. Overall the evening was great and I did a lot of fun things! Let me tell you more about the VOGUE Fashion’s Night Out after the read more button!      


With fellow bloggers Anita from Fashion Attack, Wendy from FabulousStyleWS and Kevin from the Viewfinder! 

At the beginning of the evening Fashionista’s were already shopping at the PC Hoofdstraat when a cool double-decker bus drove through the streets of Amsterdam (started from the Bijenkorf at the Dam) with on top of the bus a lot of models and Karin Swerink, chief editor of the Dutch Vogue. The Vogue Warehouse was opened where you could buy various VOGUE branded items, for example the VOGUE FNO 2013 tee!

Various shops and brands, for example Oger, tried to get attention for their brand by having models walking through the FNO area, doing crazy fitness on the street or had models posing at the store entrance. Fashion really was, all over the place! ๐Ÿ˜€

You could get free drinks and food almost at every store and a lot of store also had a DJ present playing the latest hits. Almost everything was possible this evening!

You could even go on pictures almost everywhere and some of the shoots also had visagie included! For example, I had a shoot for my own VOGUE cover! ๐Ÿ˜€

As you can see I really had a lovely evening and I would really recommend the VOGUE Fashion’s Night Out events to everyone who can join this event! It is a lot of fun, great shopping with some nice discounts & goodies, getting pictures taken of you in a shoot or just on the street because you have such a nice outfit, haha, and not to mention you have a lot of cool competitions where you can win with your fashionable look or brains! 

Have you ever been to a VOGUE FNO? If yes what did you think of it? 
Thanks for reading, I hope you liked this event report!
