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.

Mayk: Nailpolish probably!
Me: Yes, I love nailpolish! And besides that designer bags I think hihi ^^
What is my favourite breakfast and my favorite sandwich?
Mayk: That would be croissants and your favorite sandwich is a tosti with ham and cheese.

Valentines day preview: Romantic pink knit


sarandipity fashion ootd outfit pink knit romantic h&m happy valentine

Happy Valentines day everyone!

How are you all doing? I am still pretty tired from yesterday, not only did I have another evening with super awesome information about fashion journalism, I also visited Spot & Shop (I told you about this concept earlier HERE and HERE). A very cool day but when I got home around 12 0’clock in the evening I needed to go to bed ASAP haha. 

So therefore, today’s blogpost is a bit later then planned 😉 As you know it’s Valentines day this lovely day so Happy Valentines day to you all! When I went shooting this Monday I was not busy with this day so unfortunately I do not have an über Valentines look or something. But I do think the look I am going to show you tomorrow had a romantic twist to it. This blogpost is sort of a preview for tomorrow’s outfit. As you can already see the pastel pink colored knit is a little bit romantic with the grey sober background. 

Today I am going to spend time with my boyfriend and I will do some work for #metzonderwerk and my blog. I hope, fingers crossed, I can share a personal post with you later this day… Because I really want to do the boyfriend tag but I don’t know if he wants to do it haha 😀 Well, you’ll see that later..

For now, Happy Valentines day! And, if you don’t have a Valentine or he is busy or somewhere else, why not read these blogposts I wrote earlier? 🙂

Last minute Valentines day Wishlist


sarandipity fashion blog blogger valentines day wishlist urban decay too faced opsobjects valentino

Hi everyone,

It’s almost Valentines day already and therefore I wanted to share my Valentines day Wishlist with you all. I know it’s pretty last minute haha, but who cares?! 😉

Let me tell you some more about the items that are on my wishlist (from left to right). Since my passion for fashion is growing more and more my interest in beauty products is growing as well. I am reading a lot of blogs about fashion, lifestyle but beauty as well and when I saw this eyeshadow palette I knew I just had to have it! The Urban Decay NAKED 3 palette is a beauty, not cheap but not super expensive as well. For €45 or $52 dollar you can own this beautiful palette with 12(!) gorgeous eyeshadows. The perfect Saint Valentines eye-look guaranteed! 😉

Second on my wishlist is this lovely bracelet from OPS! Objects, the heart shaped guitar pick thingy on this bracelet makes it a perfect gift for Valentines day. Right? You can get this bracelet here.

Wow I am in love with the third item, this box clutch from Love Moschino! It’s pretty expensive (you can buy it on but oh so lovely! Ideal for when you are going out with your Valentine… <3

Next are the NOOSA Amsterdam chunks for on your NOOSA bracelet / bag or wallet. So cute and with a lovely meaning. Get them here: NOOSA Amsterdam Cupido & Psycho chunks .

The fifth item is the Valentina fragrance from Valentino, the name says it all right, the perfect Saint Valentine perfume! And the bottle is super pretty as well! Available at most perfume and beauty stores 🙂

My last two items on the wishlist are this gorgeous faux fur jacket, it’s from New Look but unfortunately not available anymore… It’s a shame haha. Last but not least the stunning Too Faced Sweethearts blush in the color Candy Glow or Something about Berry! The colors look so pretty and have seen some very good reviews about this product! The price on the Too Faced website is $30. And if you order now you can use the code: WEHEARTU for a 20% discount! Yay for Too Faced hihi 🙂

Well what do you guys think about my wishlist?
Hopefully I will get something from this but I doubt it, since me and my boyfriend don’t actually do something with Valentines day haha 😉

Have a lovely evening everyone!
xoxo Saranda
