Personal: Family portret photos


Hi all!

As I told you before, in this blogpost, I had a photoshoot together with my brother and boyfriend a while ago! During Christmas we finally gave my parents their gift, a photo of us three printed on Canvas! 

They were very happy with the result and so am I. I really like the pictures and today I will show you my favorites! I really like the old building where we shot the photos as well. It is actually the place my parents got married 26 years ago and it still looks very nice! What do you think of this photos??

PS: My mom is still waiting to see all of my favorites (since I don’t have them in high resolution yet) but I know she checks out my blog everyday so mom, I hope you like this ones as well! *mwah*


With my big little brother! ๐Ÿ™‚
With the love of my life! <3

RECAP: Best of 2013


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!!

My first bloggers event!!

Graduated as an Applied Psychologist!!

Making the ilovefashionbloggers Christmas video!!

As you can see I have had an A-MA-ZING 2013!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Of course I hope you had an amazing 2013 as well! 

2014 is going to be completely awesome, I am sure of it! ๐Ÿ˜€ 

Personal: my life as a Fashionblogger


Hi guys! 

Today I am sharing this video from you! When ilovefashionbloggers asked me to try out their new concept, the video columns, I was very honored to be one of the first bloggers to try and I said yes (of course!!)

In the video I tell you a bit more about myself, where I live etc. You can also see my cute little closet, the piece I can’t live without and I tell you the one item that’s one top of my wishlist! I personally am very happy with the result, I am just being me (very extrovert and talkative haha) and it represents me and my style very well! Thanks to my boyfriend for helping me film this and thank you so much to Jolique from ilovefashionbloggers for this cool opportunity!

Since we (my boyfriend and I) had a lot of fun recording this video I will be making more video’s and I will even publish the uncut version somewhere in the near future! For now don’t forget to follow me on my ilovefashionbloggers profile and give me 5 hearts! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a nice day everyone! Ciao!!

Insta-throwback November


Good morning, you all survived Monday haha. At the moment I am working really hard on my inspirational problems, you may have noticed my lag of blogging… Maybe I suffer from ‘winter depression’? I don’t know, I hope not! 

But heck, it’s December already! While growing older every year I feel like time is flying by. I can still remember 2011 NYE as if it was only a couple of months away. Well this last month flew by as well. I have been mostly busy with getting a job, have been to a couple bloggers and PR events and I have actually been to a talent day / audition for a Dutch television and radio network.. Wow! 

So today I will look back to November with you guys by showing you my Instagram feed from last month!   Hope you’ll like it and if you do, don’t forget to follow me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a lovely day, ciao!!

1. At the 3 Dol Dwaze Dagen in the Dutch luxury warehouse… To buy or not to buy… I really like the nailpolishes from KOH, however as a jobless / non-student person I really was looking for a better bargain… So, I did not buy them… But I am on the look out for a better price to buy the left and right KOH nailpolishes which are from the Galaxy Limited Edition set. 
2. One of the gifts from my mom was this Buddha statue for in the living room, I love it! <3
