Sarandipity

More than a year ago Sarandipity was born, a blog totally about fashion, lifestyle and ofcourse me, Saranda!

Since lately the blog has been growing and I have been more active myself, I think it is time to tell you all a bit more about myself, the name of the blog and more. So here goes, a sort of about me / about Sarandipity post. 

I hope you will all enjoy reading!

Remember, feedback, tips, questions everything is always welcome!

            





On january 4th 2012 Sarandipity was made by me as a way to express myself, become who I wanted to be and too share the things I thought where worth it! So when I started the blog was about a lot of things, including Psychology (my field of study). Soon I noticed it was very hard to keep a blog updated and to write about something you find interesting, but other people may not. Besides that writing about Psychologt was hard, I needed to have good sources and I was like: “This is not a way to relax myself, this is studying in a different way, I do not want this.” And so, the subject Psychology became my field of study again, and this time besides a personal interest, only my field of study. 

The blog was now more focused on fashion, lifestyle, and myself. In 2012 I posted 15 updates, which of some have been deleted because they were negligible. After a huge break with no updates at all I started blogging again around october and since then have tried to become more active on this blog. 

When New Years came I realized, I somewhat became the person I wanted to be during the last year. I am now more succesful in my study and work, had a horrible but very valuable internship, soon I will have this nice job. Besides that I now know what I want to do when I graduate, I have experienced this amazing trip to Singapore and Indonesia and I have become more grown up and self-assertive.

As you can read, I have some this I am very proud about! And I know have the confidence to make this blog a succes! During january and february this year I already have posted 17 updates and more will follow! 

So about me, I am a very normal, but overly sensitive person. I can be sunshine in the morning and storm, thunder or rain around 12 o’clock. I think I am a very creative, open-minded, loveable, caring person who should sometimes take some more distance too people who hurt me or maybe will in the future. At some points I can be too friendly and too nice to persons around me. That’s why his blog was also part of my self expression 😉 

The name of the blog Sarandipity comes from Serendipity: A “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it. (Thank you wikipedia!) I really wanted a name that I could reflect too that would also could be something when I used it in combination with my name, Saranda. I love the term Serendipity, the movie about it is wonderful, but I also had my own experiences, like finding and meeting this amazing guy on a holiday in Croatia, which I still love btw (he’s my rock, my support, I wouldn’t have become me without him!). So Serendipity, with Saranda in it made Sarandipity. I know the title doesn’t really reflect on the blog itself, but it does on me and the blog is me in every way possible. I really can be madly in love with fashion and lifestyle! In this blog I will be posting to you every week, maybe even everyday about fashion, lifestyle, inspiration, trends, myself and my own style.

Well, this is it for now..
I really don’t know what else too write about me and the blog…

Hope you enjoyed!

xoxo,

Sarandipity

Bali 2012

Kuta Beach, Bali, Best Surfspot Ever! 🙂
As you maybe already know last year I have been on this amazing trip through Indonesia! One of the lovely islands I have visited is Bali. In this post I will share some of the photo’s I have made in Bali during my stay there! 


Bali is a lovely islands where I did some relaxing things like going to a monkey forest, see a beautiful temple, surfing, partying, lounging and going to the spa! 

Hope you will enjoy this post as much as I loved (and still love) Bali!

ALOHA Friday Blog Hop, v-day edition

Aloha Friday Blog Hop

Hi all, 


Ss you all know yesterday it was valentines day, or v-day. Me and my boyfriend don’t celebrate v-day because we already celebrate or 4,5 years anniversary on the third of february. We know we love eachother and don’t feel like spending way to much money on some roses or whatever every year haha. I do hope all of you have had a wonderful day, if you celebrated valentines day with someone or not. 

So today, I will participate in the ALOHA Friday Blog Hop, hosted by What Jean Likes

Since I am very new at this, I am trying to figure out how to participate and what I all need to do, so I hope I am doing it the right way 😉 


The Aloha Friday Blog Hop is more than a “Friday” hop, it’s a way to share aloha and friendship to our fellow bloggers all weekend long!!  I consider this particular blog hop to be more of a weekend hop because Fridays are so hectic that a lot of people function on what we like to call “Hawaiian Time” here in Hawai’i which means they link up on Saturday or sometimes even Sunday which is just fine and dandy with me!  That’s why I keep it open from Friday through Wednesday because I sincerely believe, the more the merrier!! “

The rules or requests:

Follow your Aloha Friday Hop hosts and team members.
(Please leave a comment with a link to your site and we will be sure to follow you back) <– DONE

Link up your family friendly blogs
(Or other sites and projects you’d like to share) <– DONE

 Share this hop so that others might join in.
(If you’d like, you are welcome to post this hop on your site and/or add our button to your site!) <– DONE

 Visit at least three other blogs and let them know you’ve come to share aloha.
(How lucky are we to start our wonderful weekends together, let’s have fun with this) <3/3 DONE

So now, I am going to link up with all the ALOHA Friday Blog Hop participaters… We’ll see what happens! For all the valentines day lovers, wouldn’t you love to celebrate v-day with your lover in a lingerie outfit like this?! I think the valentines day pictures from Victoria’s Secret each year are just AMAZING, cute and fierce at the same time!

Lookbook

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I created this Lookbook for a competition I am in through Facebook! 
I can win a lovely IT-bag according to the page haha. 

So, I am actually wondering what you guys think from the Lookbook I have made..
It is suppose to be casual chic in two different ways. One way is with a pair of trousers, a simple black blouse, a cute jacket and some black pumps & clutch, while the second option is a cute pastel simple dress from Supertrash with the jacket over it and the same pumps & clutch. 

Hope you guys have some feedback for me since I am so new at Lookbooks! 
Sometimes I tend to have some trouble styling everything haha.

xoxo, Sarandipity
