RECAP: Best of 2013

31-12-’13


Hi lovely followers,

Tonight it’s New Years Eve and at certain moments like these we look back at what we have achieved during the last year. 2013 has been a great year for me! While 2012 was a magnificent year as well, thanks to my trip to Indonesia, 2013 maybe has been even better! ๐Ÿ˜€

One of the most important highlights from 2013 was the growth of my blog! Started from the bottom (hihi) and looking back I have achieved so much within a year! My blog now has around 350 followers both on GFC and Bloglovin’ and more than 500 likes on facebook (WOW!! Thank you guys so much for your support!). In May I went to my first ever blogging event, which was from the Coolcat and I got to meet some amazing well-known Dutch bloggers for the first time!! After that I even went to Amsterdam Fashion Week and I got invited for one of the biggest PR events! But my most amazing blog experience last year has been shooting the Christmas video, still haven’t seen it? Shame on you, go watch it right now before the Christmas spirit is gone haha ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

But that’s not all, I graduated as a Applied Psychologist, went on a challenging vacation to Norway, had some nice co-operations for my blog, won a lot of cool stuff (before this year I have won absolutely NOT ONE competition or giveaway haha) and I have met a lot of cool and awesome people whom I hope are going to stick around for another couple of years!! 

Check out some of my highlights in pictures (above you can see some of the outfits I wore during 2013, which is your favorite??) 

Have a lovely NYE and I’ll see you guys in 2014!!
xoxo

Hi everyone,

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 / cafรฉ! 

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

Event: The opening from Primark Eindhoven

Hi everyone,

On Tuesday in the early, really early even though I live like a 15 minutes bicycle ride away, morning the newest and biggest Primark of the Benelux opened it’s shopping walhalla for the online and offline press. Only two hours earlier than the normal opening, but I can already tell you it was definitely worth waking up early! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

During the last year or so I have seen the Primark building from being sort of demolished to being build up again and now it’s just phenomenal! While all the other Dutch Primarks are two storey buildings this one actually has four! And they made it really nice to shop here, the store is very well decorated, has a nice design and looks really stylish! They even have cool product posters (from their lookbooks) hanging all over the store.

While we were inside for the press opening and the pre-shopping we got a very yummy breakfast, a short tour across the store and a goodiebag with a โ‚ฌ50 giftcard. Wow!!! Ofcourse when I went outside I had a paper Primark bag full of clothes and accessories! ๐Ÿ˜€

The people waiting outside, from 5 am (crazy folks, right?!), where being entertained by this DJ in his old school Volkswagen van! How cool does this look?!

I love that green top but unfortunately I just did not know with which items I would wear it… Maybe I will buy it later, since now the Primark is so close to my home haha! (Photos by Hazal & Cana from Sisters and Sisters)

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?!

Ciao!!
