Latest looks

stephsajan4 ** Some of my latest looks! Do you have a favorite? **

Hi from my bed! I woke up super early today because Sams alarm went off at 4:45. He flew to Barcelona early in the morning for his brothers barchelors party. (no I’m not jealous at all) (where can I sign up for a bachelor party in Barca?!?). I had an appointment at the dentist at 8 AM in Arnhem, so even though I wanted to sleep a little longer, I was constantly thinking about how many minutes of sleep I had left. It went from one hour, to 45 min, to 30 min and then I was like nahh I give up, I will stay awake then haha.
After my dentist appointment I met with with my sister, mom and nephew. It was nice to have some family quality time again! Tomorrow my brother will come to my moms house as well and we’ll do something fun with the kids! Maybe we’ll visit the zoo or a big playground or something. I’d better get a good night sleep, otherwise I will be a grumpy auntie tomorrow HAHA! Kidding. Hope you’ll have a nice weekend! Kiss

My Week In Photos #3

Hey girlies! Hope you all had a great weekend. It’s Monday, so that means it’s time for another My Week In Photos post. Let’s start!boek^ I started my week by buying flowers on the Albert Cuyp market. Sam and I went there together to buy some fresh fruit, but I love roses so I just needed the white/purple ones. Now they’re kind of dead though but I don’t want to throw them away yet haha..
^ On Tuesday I was super busy with school deadlines, so the only picture I took (besides outfit pictures for this post) was while I was buying groceries. These lights caught my eyes!
^ After school on Wednesday, Lise came for a visit and we went to Hutspot to see this band play. I love live music, I could listen to covers etc all the time!
^ Sam and I shot outfit pictures on Thursday, in between the rain and hail. I received some questions about these boots; they’re from Boohoo but unfortunately they don’t sell them anymore. Asos and Zara now have similar ones though!mp8
^ I got the coolest gift from my sister when she came to see my new appartement! She heard me talking about polaroid cameras for a couple of months now so she decided to give me one! *Probably because she was sick of me doubting whether to buy one or not*. She didn’t know which I one liked most, so she let me pick one and I choose the left one. I knooow, it’s huge, but I like the format of the bigger pictures.

^ On Friday afternoon I was busy cleaning the appartement (having your own place means cleaning. And a whole lot of it. Dayum.) But I quickly visited Juice Brothers for a healthy green juice. This one is kind of sweet, even though there’s spinach and celery etc in it.
^ Went out for dinner with Sams family on Friday night. I ate a carpaccio as starter, then a seafood pasta & afterwards the most delicious nutella desert. Yeeees, you read that right, NUTELLA! I now need to find out how they exactly made it. Won’t be a problem trying out different nutella desserts though :))  pl3
^ On Sunday Naz & I visited the Tony Cohen show during Amsterdam Fashion Week. I had a bit of a clothing crisis as you can see on the right picture. When I came home at 12 AM after the show (which was super pretty though!), I was like shiiiit, now I have to clean up this mess and all I want to do is sleep. Haha! I’m now going to cook dinner – Sam is feeling a bit sick so I hope my cooking skills won’t make him any sicker ;p Talk to you soon! Xxx

The Gray Stairs


When I’m on the run, this is the sort of outfit I’ll throw on. I absolutely love this coat and it perfectly matches with my fringe booties. My alarm went off at 7.30 yesterday and I left the house one hour later so there’s your answer regarding the messiest ponytail ever. :))

I had a pretty nice Thursday though. After school, my sister, her hubby and my nephew came on a visit and they bought me the coolest gift. A polaroid camera! Ahh that’s the best gift! Will show you what it looks like in my next diary. Lise came over for dinner later and we watched Bridge of Spies. At first we were like whaaat is this? Why aren’t they talking yet? Where’s the action?!? But 10 min later we were totally into it. Now I have to run some errands. Have a nice weekend!! X

To balance out all of the lifestyle related posts lately, here’s an outfit post. Yesterday I wore light jeans, a matching light blue jumper and a long gray coat. I added my pink pom pom key chain to my bag to create a bit more color. By the way, I had no idea – till this morning  – that that little pink fluffy ball is called a pom pom haha. Makes sense though.

I’m having breakfast right now and I’m preparing my presentation for today. I have to present a new Bershka collection at school (all fiction though, I didn’t become a Bershka designer suddenly). Tonight Lise will come visit me and we’ll have a sleepover. Not sure if it’s going to be an at home Netflix night or if we’ll actually leave the house and do something fun! We’ll see. Have a great day! X

I was wearing (or similar):
G-star Raw jeans
Tom Tailor jumper
ASOS coat
Forever 21 bag
Topshop pom pom
Isabel Marant shoes


My week in photos #2

Hey there! Good evening. Sorry for the lack of updates last week.. My dad was on a visit and I didn’t prepare any blog posts (baaad!!) Won’t happen again! Here’s what I was up to:IMG_4093


On Monday I visited a PR agency to meet the team and discuss some ideas. In the evening Sam and I watched the movie The Revenant; really good but a little too rough for me at times. I won’t give away any spoilers, but if you have, you probably know which parts I’m talking ’bout.

^ Later that evening my sister and I picked up our dad at the airport 😄
^ We drove to Kleeve, Germany on Tuesday. We ate cake at a German bakery and we shopped a little bit, then we drove back again. The only thing I bought was dry shampoo though, not so exciting haha :))
^ I went to school on Thursday and followed a marketing class. We have a photo studio in our school and that’s where I took this (shameless) selfie. 😋
IMG_4610^ Friday evening I played the Bean Boozled challenge with family. Let me tell you one thing: the canned dog food flavor is nasty on a whole new level. The worst part was that I couldn’t get the flavor out of my mouth for the entire evening.. It was fun to play though!

mnkok^ Nijmegen on Saturday! I got home with fresh flowers, new stuff for my house (like towels etc) and a new pair of black jeans. You can never have enough black jeans. At least that’s what I think!
^ Sunday aka yesterday was the last family day. (buuhuu) We went into town and out for dinner. Now it’s time to focus on my blog and school again. See you soon! ♡ Xxx

Happy New Year!


HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you all had a great night! I started my new year with oliebollen (a New Years Eve tradition in the Netherlands) in our new apartment. Sam and I moved in here yesterday. :) I will show you some pictures soon.

The bag I’m wearing in these pictures is from MYOMY. My classmate wore a similar bag and she told me that they offer a wide range of fair trade produced items. Since my school is teaching us all about sustainability and the importance of conscious fashion, I did a little research and read their whole story here. Really inspiring. ”Purchasing a MYOMY bag, will make you a proud owner of a iconic Dutch Design item, as well as contributing to a better world.

GELUKKIG NIEUWJAAR! Hopelijk heb je een leuke avond gehad! Ik ging het nieuwe jaar in met oliebollen, in ons nieuwe appartement. Sam en ik zijn hier gister naartoe verhuisd. :) Zal binnenkort wat foto’s laten zien.

De tas die ik draag op deze foto’s is van MYOMY. Mijn klasgenootje had een tas van dit merk en vertelde mij dat het een fairtrade geproduceerde tas is. Aangezien ik op school les krijg over duurzaamheid en ik hier erg geïnteresseerd in ben, ging ik op onderzoek uit en las ik het hele verhaal hier. Een inspirerend verhaal. ”Met de aankoop van een MYOMY tas ben je niet alleen een trotse eigenaar van een iconisch Dutch Design item, maar draag je ook bij aan een betere wereld.
