Personal: Instadiary February


instagram diary sarandipity fashion blog personal dutch netherlands

Hi everyone,

March has already started a week a go and still I have not shared last months Instagram diary with you all… Since my month was not super special and actually quite boring, I decided to make it a short diary this time with the focus on a couple of cool things. First I have shot a couple of photos with Britt from Britta Maxime and last Monday (I know that was March already haha) I also went shooting with Kelly from We Heart Fashion. It’s always lovely to shoot with fellow fashion bloggers since they know what to do, how you like your pictures and how the outfit will look best.  Besides that I loved my evening classes from the course of fashion journalism (yesterday I had my last class but I will tell you more about the course later) and besides that I loved the Soiree Magnifique event from Mr. Goodiebag! Fun workshops, lovely people, nice networking opportunities and of course a great goodiebag :D. 

From left to right top to bottom:
1. VOGUE for dogs, DOGUE haha

2. Selfie with Britt after our outfit shoots
3. Nerdy selfie with a very very fake pair of glasses (without glass)
4. Yummy breakfast with strawberry yoghurt, al bran muesli with fruits and goji berries
5. Inspiration day, information from my course of fashion journalism and two lovely magazines
6. I am in love with this necklace from Zara, I need it! <3
7. Fun and a lot of love, together with Dagmar, Anne, Lois and Ingeborg at Soiree Magnifique 🙂
8. One of the photos from my shoot with Kelly, I just love this picture.

9. Last but not least one of the looks I shot with Britt last month, her Balenciaga bag is gorgeous!

Well I hope you liked this short Instadiary and I hope you’ll have a lovely day 🙂

Valentines day: the Sarandipity boyfriend tag


Happy Valentines day everyone!
Hi lovely followers,
As I told you in my previous blogpost I really wanted to do the boyfriend tag today so here it is! Although he is not very keen on being in the spotlight he filled in the questions hihi… Since the boyfriend tag is super cute but not always with the most cool questions I thought, how bout personalize the tag a bit. So this tag is really a Sarandipity boyfriend tag haha 😉If you like it please use it, maybe you can link back? That would be great!
Well here we go, have fun reading!! 🙂

When and where did we first meet?
Mayk: We met somewhere in the afternoon at a pier in Rovinj.
Me: True, during my first vacation without my parents I met you in Rovinj, Croatia. 
What was our first ‘date’ ?
Mayk: Some dinner somewhere :p
Me: Haha probably true, since we did not actually date before we got to be a couple we don’t know this exactly 😉 Fun fact 😉
How did we become official?
Mayk: We registered our names and legislation under the official couples representatives act of 2008.
Me: LOL, it was actually pretty funny. After you got back from vacation you came to my place with a few friends and since you and me lived so far apart back then my parents let you guys stay overnight. Then I send you a text with something saying, xoxo your girlfriend? Hihi ^^
When did you first meet my parents?
Mayk: 30 seconds after I met you for the second time.
Me: Haha that’s pretty accurate I guess 🙂
What was the most epic experience we had together?
Mayk: Our roadtrip with the motorbikes in Crete, Greece?
Me: Yes that was awesome! But I do think every vacation we went on together was amazing!
What is my biggest dream?
Mayk: To be happy.
Me: Yeah probably haha, my dreams always tend to shift.
What do I do when I am bored?
Mayk: Nothing useful, checking Facebook and watching tv-series 😛
Me: That’s true I’m afraid 😉
How long do I take to get ready in the morning?
Mayk: Your morning “routine” takes about 1 minute. One second is spent in getting out of bed, then about 9 seconds for making breakfast, followed by 49.9 seconds of thinking what clothing to wear today :P, and then 0.1 seconds to actually put them on. Everything else is done en route. Pretty accurate. *replace the word seconds by minutes during the weekends.
Me: Pretty accurate indeed, especially when I am in a hurry! 
When did we move to Eindhoven?
Mayk: If u mean as in, when was our first night here I actually don’t know. Maybe the weekend after my bday?
Me: Correct! 
Name one unfortunate moment we really laughed about afterwards?
Mayk: The puke festival in the train, haha.
Me: Haha yeah that was super embarrassing :p
What do you think I like about you the most?
Mayk: My fun loving caring personality accompanied with dat amazing supamodel baoddi ;]
Me: <3 
What do I like to watch on television?
Mayk: ehmmm not sure whatsitcalled. Some kind of high-school vampires singing songs while communicating in sign language like everyone is deaf? And then there is this other show about 4 little liars being chased by someone called A. Me: I watch to much tv series haha

Name a type of food I hate…
Mayk: Peanuts
Me: Bluhhhh indeed I don’t like peanuts.
sarandipity boyfriend tag valentines day lifestyle fashion personal
We are out for dinner, what drink do I order?

Mayk: Probably Coca Cola
Me: Or water, or sweet white whine.

Mayk: 38

If I were to be a collector, what would I collect?
Mayk: Nailpolish probably!
Me: Yes, I love nailpolish! And besides that designer bags I think hihi ^^

Mayk: That would be croissants and your favorite sandwich is a tosti with ham and cheese.

Personal: Instadiary January

Hi everyone,

I am back again! 😀 After a couple of huge and important deadlines for my course of fashion journalism I am now back to blogging… Since it’s already the 8th of February an instadiary blogpost about January is perfect, right?? 🙂 

January was a busy month, starting my fashion journalism course, events, Amsterdam FashionWeek and lots of blogger dates! Although I have been pretty busy with lots of stuff, most of the things are relaxing too. I just love the course I am following and events are cool (most of the times). Besided that Amsterdam FashionWeek was a-ma-zing and meeting my blogger babes is always super fun and a good way to relax and spend your time!

Personal: Instagram & photo diary


ilovefashionbloggers sarandipity dutch fashion blog saranda personal diary photography fashionbloggers styling inspiration outfit ootd

Hi everyone,

Last couple of weeks has been pretty busy with some awesome things and so I thought it would be time for a personal instagram & photo diary. So today I will tell you a bit about all the things I have done lately.

First a lovely New Years drink from ilovefashionbloggers I went to last wednesday evening! In the afternoon before the drink I went shooting with the lovely Nathalie and I think the pictures turned out just lovely! More about that later. Together we went to the NY drink and dinner actually at Bo Cinq (a very special restaurant, bar and wine bar). The dinner was just lovely, very special also and after the dinner we had a private ilovefashionbloggers wine tasting. Even better, the small bites with the wine tasting were delicious! We even got a small performance from Andre Heuvelman. He played a classical piece from Bach and it was lovely to just sitback and relax while listening to this beautiful music! 

Read more for more photos and info 🙂

Besides the ilovefashionbloggers New Years drink I also went to the bloggers event from FRESH communications where I had to style and outfit. You can read more about this ‘event’, I was actually already there before the event even started haha, in this blogpost.

Last but not least I started with the course of fashion journalism last week! Of course I will keep you up to date about this education! So far I am super excited and I love it! 😀
