As you all know I have been to London a couple of weeks ago and although the trip didn’t all go as planned we had a lot of fun and absolutely enjoyed our trip! Let me tell you, the hotels we stayed in; the Mandeville and CitizenM did help an awful lot!
For one night we stayed in the gorgeous Mandeville hotel in the Marylebone area in London. Not only is this 4-star boutique hotel perfectly situated, read: near the shopping area ;), the hotel also has a great eye for design. For the 5th floor the Mandeville collaborated with La Maison Christian Lacroix which resulted in 4 absolutely fabulous rooms inspired by the French Riviera.
Lucky as we were we got to stay in one of the gorgeous Christian Lacroix rooms: the Midnight Blue room. Check it out! 😀

As some of you might know I have been on a London Citytrip the second weekend of 2017, because what better way to start the new year?! Well, without 4 hours delay and the #TubeStrikes of course haha. Our trip did not really go as planned and we saw less than we wanted to see, still we had a bunch of fun, had some successful shopping moments and most importantly, we laughed – A LOT! 🙂

Two weeks ago I went to London for a bit more than 24 hours and today I am telling you a bit more about this long day I spend in London! As normally when I go on a trip with my boyfriend it was quiet the adventure haha.
On Thursday morning we had an early flight from Eindhoven to London Stansted airport. As we flew at 8 and we went back in time for one hour we also landed around 8 o’clock and so we would have a really long day in this gorgeous city. At least that’s what we thought. Normally when I fly with Ryanair I am on my way from the airport home or to the city center in just 20 minutes. But London Stansted is HUGE(!) for a regional airport, plus there was this weird check in thing we needed to do with our passports… Ah well, we arrived in the city around 11:00 and first we went to see the financial district as it was my boyfriends birthday gift and he really wanted to see the big skyscraper buildings from the biggest investment banking firms.

Oh my I am sooo excited! This week I am going on a one day (24 hours and a bit) trip to London together with my boyfriend! It’s actually a birthday present from me to him as he always spoiled me with the most amazing gift and well, he deserved it!
So this Thursday I am off to London for a long day and I can not wait. I am going to London baby!!
As we will only have a short amount of time we are very busy making a good planning for the day and of course there are some things that we just have to see. And there will be some shopping involved to ofcourse! Personally I really want to go to Harrods and Victoria’s Secret. But as it is my boyfriends day he will call most of the shots haha.
We already know that we want to visit the Natural History Museum for sure, as it is free and it seems to be a pretty amazing museum! Furthermore we of course have to see the St. Pauls Cathedral, the Big Ben, the Tower bridge, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the famous squares of course. And since it is around Christmas time already we will definitely visit Hyde Park a.k.a. Winter Wonderland from December! Aaah I really can not wait hihi.
Do you have any tips and tricks to spend the most amazing day in London

Wow I am still talking about London Fashion Week while Paris Fashion Week has already started, I think I might have a lot of catching up to do haha 😀
Today I would like to show you 12 (!) of my favorite catwalk looks from London Fashion Week. A couple of days ago I already showed you my fave designs from the Hunter Orginal fashion show, which I really loved by the way! Stylish boots and raincoats, what more could a Dutch girl wish for in the fall?! 😉 But today it’s the turn of Topshop Unique, Tom Ford and Burberry Prorsum. What I really liked about the collections from Topshop and Tom Ford were the clean designs and beautiful use of colors. Check out that gorgeous grey and black outfit above on the left, the long/midi circle skirt which looks super luxurious combined with a with a puffy more urban jacket. I heart it! <3 Both looks you can see above are from the Topshop Unique Fall Winter 2014/2015 collection.
The Burberry collection on the other hand was pretty colorful, deep darker colors were combined with pastels and various prints. From ethnic prints to dots and flowers. Not to mention the fabulous looking red sheer dress with lace embellishments.
What do you think of these collections? And which looks do you really like?
Two other looks from the Topshop Unique collection, I love this more nude and soft colors.
My favorite four looks from the Tom Ford fashionshow. I personally like look three and four the best but I just can not pick one ultimate favorite haha.
Last but not least my favorites from the Burberry Prorsum fashion show. A huge difference with the two shows above but I love this as well. Look one and look four are my favorites. In my opinion look two is gorgeous but more for end of summer with the very naked looking top.
