Oggi / today I want to talk to you about good – real good – Italian food!
I love Italy and I won’t be lying as I said that I almost love every Italian dish… I am a big fan of the Italian kitchen. From Pizza & Pasta Bolognese, to a nice risotto or the perfect vermicelli dish.
I would not be lying either when I would say that most of the people I know love my Lasagna’s and my pesto pasta salad was pretty popular during the Christmas dinner.
Okay I’ll stop bragging ’bout it!
Today I want to tell you a bit about the various ways to make a good and delicious pasta Carbonara. With some tips from a Vapiani (a pasta chef at Italian Fresh-Fast-Food chain Vapiano).

OMG I am so excited to share this blogpost with you! Two weekends ago I was invited to go to this huge open air festival in Holland called Extrema Outdoor. This festival is all about love, peace and music and M.A.C. cosmetics was doing the make-up for the opening and end show.
Unlimited PR asked me if I wanted to join them and M.A.C. to this festival with backstage access to see the make-up artists working their cosmetics make-up! This day I took a lot of photos, enjoyed the festival together with fellow bloggers, Laura from Unlimited PR and my lovely boyfriend who decided he could not let this cool festival pass by without joining me… 🙂
Not only was it super interesting too see the make-up artists at work, it was also really amazing that we were treated like VIP’s the whole day! From free drinks, and amazing, healthy lunch, M.A.C. touch up at the Bijenkorf and a little goodiebag from M.A.C.!
The whole experience was well conceived and organised. At the end of the day I was pretty tired but this day was really one of the coolest events I have had as a blogger! Thanks again to Laura, Unlimited PR, M.A.C. Cosmetics and Extrema Outdoor for this day, it was pretty freaking awesome!

Garcia Jeans Fashion Show SS16 from Garcia Jeans on Vimeo.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to join Maison PR to the Garcia jeans FW15 show at the Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam. Together with a lot of people from the international fashion press and just a handful of fellow Dutch bloggers I enjoyed a wonderful show from the Dutch brand with Italian roots.
I was really honored to be there and to be able to now share this report with you all! As a Dutchy with an Italian heart, love of Italian fashion and taste of Italian food, this was truly one of the most amazing events I have ever been to!
The event started with a little peak backstage where we saw a part of the shows rehearsal, models in hair and make-up and we already saw some cool items! The event ended with a denim focused show which by far exceeded my expectations!
I fell totally fell head over heels in love with this brand. Check out my report including a little preview of the upcoming fall collection! What is your opinion on Garcia Jeans?!

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?
