Hi lovely followers,

Today I would like to show you the result from the outfit shoot I had with Britt on Monday. As you might have seen in the preview I am carrying a very precious and gorgeous it-bag! This stunning Balenciaga it-bag is unfortunately not mine but it’s from Britt hihi. Ah well it least I did have it in my hands and made this photos and blogpost as proof… It does look really really pretty with this outfit in my humble opinion, just as if it was meant to be! 😉 I really like this outfit since it’s laid-back, casual and had a rock chick kind of feel to it. Depending on my mood and the weather I just love that rock chick style.

Besided the super stunning Balenciaga bag I am wearing a bouclé biker jacket from MANGO, tee from VOGUE (bought at VFNO), soft pink jeans from Esprit and heels from H&M. 

What do you guys think of this look? Ciao!!

Hi guys,

Wow I am featured in the Dutch Fashionista Magazine this month! It’s pretty cool so I just had to share it with you guys haha. Yes I am kind of proud. It’s not everyday your face is in magazine, right?! In the feature I tell something about some of my hotspots in Eindhoven. Working on this feature together with Fashionista was so fun that I am thinking of writing more about my hotspots. Not only in Eindhoven, but also in cities like Amsterdam or places I visit abroad. 

What do you guys think, would you like to read more about my hotspots?
Ciao!!

Hi guys,

Today I would like to share the full outfit from my last day of Fashion Week with you guys! I took the pictures near my home last week since I did not have time for it before the shows so the environment is way different… But I just love how these pictures turned out! I have tons of lovely fellow bloggers who make perfect and stunning photos but before most of my pictures were made by my primary photographer, my boyfriend haha, these photos are made by him as well. So just a shout-out to him, I love you and thank you for supporting me and my blogging adventures <3

Now about the look, as I said I wore these look to my last day at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam and I love this look for the simplicity. The simplicity combined with the details and different textures is what made this look perfect, in my humble opinion, to wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week!

I am wearing a lot of new items for example the soft pink top with silver embellishments and the white blazer. Both of the items are from H&M. My total outfit: white blazer H&M, soft pink top with silver embellishments on the sleeves H&M, pants with a lot of zippers H&M, bag from Deena & Ozzy and my heels are from H&M as well. Wow it’s a lot of H&M this time haha, ah well.. 

What do you all think of this look?

MBFWA day 3, Dorhout Mees, Tony Cohen & Winde Rienstra

Hi lovely followers,

Sorry for not posting yesterday, I just had to take some more sleep haha. Now I finally feel top-fit again to amaze you with great blog posts about fashion shows and my last outfits! 🙂 Last Sunday, wow that is already a week ago (Time goes by way to fast…) I went to a lot of fashion shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam! It was a busy busy day and I actually skipped one show since I was super tired and I also had to prepare and do some research about the designer and his previous career and collections for the show from Tony Cohen. Because I went to see this show for my course of Fashion Journalism, that’s why. 

At the end I went to three shows on Sunday and all these shows where just amazing! I think I can easily say that one of these shows is my favorite, I just don’t know which one haha. 

The fashion show from Dorhout Mees was a true spectacle, with a short film before the show started, amazing dresses and just the perfect background music. The whole ambiance during this show was lovely and I really liked the collection. After the show from Dorhout Mees I went to the show from Tony Cohen. Tony Cohen has a gorgeous and super sweet muse and I actually spoke to her after the show (again for my Fashion Journalism course and hopefully soon to be career). The fashion show was amazing as well, I loved the designs, the fabrics and the use of colors. Last but certainly not least I went to the fashion show from Winde Rienstra, a Frisian Dutchie who definitely has an eye for design. The gorgeous gowns, cork and coconut sky-high heels and a very intriguing Frisian singer as background music. Another show I loved! 

Check out the pictures I made after the read more button. Ciao!!

The show from Dorhout Mees, inspired by nature and wood. The first picture is actually a sort of screenshot I made with my camera from the short film.

MBFWA down-town: Important blogging lessons

23-01-’14

Hi guys,

Last Monday I kicked of my personal week of Fashion at one of the MBFWA down-town activities, the bloggerscafé by Fashionchick. Together with a couple of my fellow blogger babes I went to the NRC Cafe in Amsterdam and it was a fun and very interesting evening! Three well-known Dutch bloggers and power women told us everything about the ins and outs of blogging and of course we got some very useful tips as well! Of course I would not be me if I were not sharing some key information with you guys! 

First of all the director from Fashionweek Nederland, Rob Zomer, told us that he sees bloggers as a sort of USB-hub to the users and buyers of fashion. He said that bloggers are critical, have their one opinion, are quick and are important to broaden the network and reach in the Dutch fashion branch! Wow, that’s definitely another statement in comparison with the statements about NY Fashion Week being a zoo haha 😉 After the opening from Rob Zomer we listened to Monique van Loon from Culy.nl. Monique told us to always blog regularly but above all to write share able content to create a snowball effect. Since I know my personal ups and downs concerning inspiration it was just a relieve to find out that in such a situation, you can just ask your readers (yeah I mean you guys! ;)) what they would like to read! 

Read more for the rest of the key tips and tricks about blogging!

xoxo Saranda

After the very useful tips from Monique the stage was ready for Yvonne Eijkenduin, home decoration and interior blogger on yvestown.nl. I loved how Yvonne was just so personal and being herself! Therefore her biggest trip was to always keep your blog and your blog posts as close to you and yourself as possible. Being you and showing personality is that one unique factor your blog needs! For example if you don’t have a special niche clothing style, that can still be your blog’s unique factor, since you like to mix it up! Such a nice lesson to have learned since I love and like almost everything haha. 

Yvonne spoke to us with a lot of humor, and I loved how so said that blogging about your personal life can be kind of sneaky haha. She actually said something like: “One loves to watch porn, I love to read blogs, it is also a sneaky kind of world”. Well you can imagine how all of us bloggers were laughing out loud / rolling over the floor laughing! 😉

Last but certainly not least was Anouk the founder of Creators of Desire. COFD is a wonderful collective from diverse fashion bloggers with each their own style. Anouk also has her own blog and helps bloggers with guidance and also gives masterclasses about the blogging business. During Anouk’s talk she discusses the seven deadly sins on blogging. Are you guys ready for this? Here it goes:

1. Vanity; don’t get cocky or arrogant, respect your readers, colleagues and people from the industry… You will meet most people more than once! 

2. Greed; don’t just go ahead with every offer you get from brands and don’t let your blog become a commercial billboard. 

3. Lust; Try not to copy from successful fashion bloggers, go back to the basics and stay true to yourself.

4. Jealousy; Put your jealousy to good use and turn it into a trigger to make the best out of your own blog! 

5. Gluttony; Don’t spam, share a new blog post once or twice, but not ten times haha. Also place quality content and don’t publish posts just for the sake of publishing.

6. Anger/rage; Always stay professional, if your mad just take a walk around the block and calm down. Stay nice and friendly to the people you meet. Elegance is KEY!!! (I have also learned this one during my course of Fashion Journalism and I think it’s pretty damn important)

7. Laziness; don’t be lazy and go the extra mile, give yourself for more than 100%

Wow this is a lot of text haha, but I really enjoyed writing it and of course I hope you loved / liked reading it! You can leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this kind of articles 🙂 

Ciao! <3
