Happy Aloha Friday!
Hi everyone! As a blogger who has not been blogging for a very long time, I started blogging more actively and seriously since January, I found a lot of pleasure in joining Blog Hops! A blog hop is a place where you will get the opportunity to find new blogs and make new connections with fellow bloggers! This month I will join in the ALOHA Friday blog hop, which means I will post a blogpost like this every Thursday for four weeks! The blogpost itself is THE way to join that weeks blog hop! It really is a cool way to meet new people and to expand your network! 

Let me know if you have joined the blog hop and please also let me know what you think of this concept!

Insta-throwback September

01-10-’13


Hi dear followers,

September has been an amazing month, a lot of lovely sunny days, blogger events, fun with my boyfriend and more! From now on I will post some of the, in my humble opinion, coolest personal Instagram shots with you on the first day of the new month. The new Insta-trowback, how I will name it, focuses on what I did in the last month. Most of the pictures will be from Instagram, since it’s an Insta-throwback, but I will also like iPhone photos and photos from events (if I got them later then the blogpost about the event). 

I hope you will like this new monthly Instagram blogpost! Please let me know what you think in the comments! Click on read more for a little bit of info about the pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚

xoxo, Saranda

Event: Olympus OMD E-M1 bloggerevent

olympus camera photography OMDE-M1 try out review DSLR

Happy saturday everyone! More than a week ago I went to a very cool bloggerevent from Olympus! Most of the pictures in this blogpost are made with several Olympus camera’s, of course! Not only by me but also by Wendy from FabulousStyleWS and Anite from Fashion Attacks the blog. At the event we got the change to test many different Olympus body’s, camera lenses and even compact camera’s! The select group of bloggers at the event, including me, where actually on of the first people ever to try out the Olympus OMD E-M1! 

We also got same great photography tips and trics from fashion photographer Brendan de Clercq and he accompanied us while trying out the Olympus camera’s on the streets of Amsterdam! He even made some nice shots of me, but for a random reason I don’t seem to have them anymore. I guess I should send him an email with the question if he happens to still have these pictures, fingers crossed! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow, such a picture overload haha! I certainly had a great day at Olympus, very cool to try out the newest Olympus camera’s and of course being around fellow bloggers and photography addicts! The Olympus camera’s (OMD E-M1 and the Olympus PEN camera’s included) all have very cool functionalities, for example all the filters we used in the different photos. Besides that you also have a storymode where you can take several pictures and place them multiple frames. In the end Olympus won me over and now I have a little bit of a problem since my back account won’t let me buy one haha. Thank you Olympus for having me, it was a lovely day!!


If you think this is all, wait for the outfit post about what I wore this particular day! 
Hope you liked this blogpost! ๐Ÿ™‚

Event: POM (Piece of Mine) Amsterdam

24-09-’13

Some of the ready made POM capes! <3

Hi everyone,

Let me introduce you to POM (Piece of Mine) Amsterdam! POM is a Dutch shawls and capes brand, based in yup Amsterdam. Last week I went to the POM blogger event where we actually got the change to DIY our own POM shawl! I loved a lot of the different shawls and capes so I had a little bit of trouble picking my fabric, pom-poms and leather lining, but in the end I am so very happy with my own personal POM shawl! ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out the rest of this event report after the read more button! If you wish to stay up to date about my everyday life don’t forget to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter ๐Ÿ™‚     
Ciao!!


A SHAWL… I really liked this quote and story about POM… <3 As you can see we also had some lovely and above all, healthy, bites! Looking around a bit I saw a lot of lovely scarfs and really got some inspiration for my own POM shawl! 



I went for the Turquoise Wolf  fabric, in the picture above you can see it on the right. With the HUGE off-white pompoms you can see below, and brown leather at the largest side of the shawl for a little bit of extra luxurious feel. 



We also had the opportunity to try on other shawls, go into hair and make-up and get a photo from you with your new personal POM shawl! Too bad it took a while for my shawl to be made but I did make some more pictures. Unfortunately I don’t have the photo shoot results yet but I can already show you some instagram / iPhone shots ๐Ÿ™‚


The first picture, me and fellow blogger Wendy, I am so in love with the POM shawl I am wearing in this picture, after we got our hair done! Look how pretty we are?! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And in the second picture the result, my own personal POM shawl!!! <3


By the way, if you want more info about this cool dutch shawl brand, check out their website!! Hope you liked this report dear followers! xoxo
