Trend report: Clash of the Tartans

20-10-’13
Clash of the tartans

From today I would like to start with sharing my trend reports in a more creative way! I love being busy making collages (online and offline) and Polyvore for me is a great way to do so! 

By making this collage and sharing it with you on my blog I am showing you the trend (in this case obviously Tartan ;)), some cool tartan items, and a little bit of a how to wear by the shown examples in the collage. You can check my Polyvore board for more info about the items shown above!! I really love the Tartan trend, mostly the wine red / blue or green / blue printed items! But, confession, I have zero Tartan printed items at the moment. So I have some shopping to do haha. 

How do you like this new form of trend reports? Do you have other suggestions? And, what is your favorite Tartan item, any suggestion on what I should buy?? Leave me a comment πŸ™‚

I really hope you liked this late night blogpost! Sweet dreams!

Goodmorning lovely followers,

Last Tuesday I went to POM Amsterdam x dance4life event. I already wrote about POM earlier in this blogpost. This time I am writing about the awesome collaboration they are having with dance4life! Dance4life is a Dutch charity organization, who try to fight HIV & AIDS all over the world! They do this by giving education but music and dance play a big part in there strategy to stop AIDS. For more information about dance4life check out there website HERE. POM designed two different shawls for this charity collaboration! With the quote “Express yourself with POM Amsterdan & support dance4life” in mind they went for an expressive shawl with paint splashes and 2 different linings (neon pink POM’s and a green leather lining with studs)

The two special shawls (see the pictures below) will be available online and in the dutch warehouse ‘de Bijenkorf’ from the first of November. Per shawl the price is €59,95, the income gathered from the sales will go to projects from dance4life.

Review: Cute phonecase, Phonegeek.nl

18-10-’13

Hi guys! 


A while a go I had contact with Phonegeek.nl about a collaboration. So last week I received my new phonecase from the brand Rilakkuma, a cute case in the shape of a bear and a Rilakkuma dust cap! 

Phonegeek.nl is a webshop which focuses on trendy, stylish, unique but handy phone accessories! They sell a great variety of phone cases (from silicone, hard case, flip case or a blinged phonecase) but also accessories like dust caps, color skins and home button stickers. At phonegeek you can really customize a lot of your Apple products, your Samsung Galaxy or bling your HTC one X!

So now for the case I received, which is this one by the way: 


The case was deliverd in a bubblewrap envelop and in this plastic ziplock bag, the dust cap is also in this ziplock bag.

I love the case, it is very playfull, cute and it also covers my phone really well. I actually have the feeling that my phone will be fine if it should fall (I still won’t try it out by the way haha). What I also like is that the buttons from my iPhone still function really well (due to the buttons being sort of integrated in the case). The only thing I don’t like is that if I want to switch from silence to sound on or the other way around, I need to take the case (partly) from my phone to do so. Which is a little bit annoying when you are say, at a meeting or something formal. Also my phone is HUGE now, so my phone does not fit in my pocket anymore… But those really are the only downsides of this ΓΌber cute phonecase! After testing this case for a while I really think this case does what it needs to do, protect my phone, and it is cute as well. I am very happy! 



Also I received a dust cap, which i actually use just because it is so cute haha. My dust cap is matching with my case, which really makes it extra cute! What do you think of this combination?!


I went for a duo package at the Phonegeek website, check out these other cute duo packages!


If you like my case, the duo packages I showed you and / or dust cap check out some of the other cool cases Phonegeek.nl sells! Just as a nice extra I managed to get a discount code especially for my followers! Use the code Sarandipity at checking out and you receive a 10% on the whole assortment (valid untill 31-12-2013)

Let me know in a comment what you think of my cute new phonecase! πŸ™‚

Hi all! 

Hope you are all doing great! πŸ™‚ Yesterday I went to a nice press event. But since it was only for just a couple of hours and I had to make pretty long journey to the event, I decided to dress up smart. Not to dressy, not to chique, but something fashionable and still comfy. Well except for the high heels, which are new, so they are not that comfy yet haha. See for yourself and please let me know what you think of this look in a comment! πŸ™‚ 

I am wearing a personalized POM-Amsterdam shawl; H&M chiffon top (HERE); Fillipa K high-waisted jeans; H&M heels (HERE); Tosca Blu bag and a necklace by CK Jewelry. 

Ciao!!
