Event: Dutch Design Week

28-10-’13


Hi everyone,

Last weekend I went to a couple expositions during the Dutch Design Week (DDW) in my home town Eindhoven! This year the theme from the DDW was Now Future, futuristic and modern designs in the fields op fashion & textile, architecture, industrial design, trends, home deco and more. Unfortunately I didn’t see everything, some things closed earlier (which I am kinda mad about) and so I did not see one of the most cool expositions I was looking forward to (FML). But I did see some cool things which I would love to share with you. 

Check out some of my DDW photos after the read more button!
Ciao!!

Knitted fashion by KnittID from Olga van Zeijl & Rianne de Witte.

At the 1 2 3 expo, fashion items by de l’eefstijl from Eef Middendorp.

I did like the things I saw at the Dutch Design Week but to be honest I did expected more fashion expositions and was really dissapointed that the coolest fashion exposition closed earlier. 

What do you think of the photos? Have you visited the Dutch Design Week and what did you think? 

Let me know in a comment!

Goodmorning everyone,

Last week the first Dutch Urban Outfitters opened it’s doors in Amsterdam! This Urban Outfitters store actually now is the largest flagship store in Europe! Eat your heart out Antwerp haha πŸ˜‰ Well to be honest, I never visited an Urban Outfitters store before, but I am hooked! It was just so cool walking in the store, it feels a bit like walking through a candy store combined with your favorite museum. Or something like it, the store is just really really awesome! πŸ˜€ 

Of course I made some (read: a lot) pictures, which I will show you in this blogpost. To the dutchies, if you have not visited the Urban Outfitters in Amsterdam yet, promise me you will go there! It’s quite the shopping experience… 

Well, take a look at the pictures! xoxo

Urban Outfitters spoiled us bloggers and press a bit as well. We’ve got to pick out one item from the Urban Outfitters brand to take home with us. I really had a difficult time choosing my item but at the end I fell in love with this bag from Deena & Ozzy! 

I actually didn’t have a black leather bag, haha shame on me, so I guess you will see this bag a lot in my outfit photo’s from now on! Thanks Urban Outfitters for the great preview and the lovely gift, you will probably be seeing me a lot in your store haha!

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!

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! 

Click on read more for the full review πŸ™‚

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™‚
