MOROCCAN STREETS

Good afternoon babes! I’m back home, writing this blog post while I’m in the train on my way to my sister. She gave birth to my baby nephew in the middle of the night, so I can’t wait to meet him & kiss him & give him lots of cuddles!
I still have a lot of pictures to show you from Morocco, so I’ll upload those to my blog and Instagram the upcoming days. These are the photos we took in the streets of Medina, the old town of Marrakesh. We went there on Saturday and Sunday. The old town mainly exists of narrow streets filled with lots of people, scooters that are driving by and souks that sell traditional textiles, pottery and jewelry. There’s this big square in the middle of the centre called Jemaa al Fna, and I think I’ve never seen this much people at one place. SO. BUSY.

Goedemiddag babes! Ik ben weer thuis en schrijf deze post terwijl ik in de trein zit, onderweg naar m’n zus. Ze is vannacht bevallen van m’n baby neefje Lars en ik kan niet wachten om hem te ontmoeten, te kussen en om hem te knuffelen!
Ik heb nog steeds veel foto’s van Marokko, dus ik ga die de aankomende dagen op m’n blog en Instagram posten. Dit zijn wat foto’s die we in the straten van Medina hebben gemaakt, de oude stad van Marrakech. We gingen daar zaterdag en zondag heen. De oude stad bestond uit smalle straatjes, veel mensen, rijdende scooters en souks die traditionele textiel, aardewerk en sieraden verkochten. In het midden van het centrum is er een heel groot plein, genaamd Jemaa al Fna, en ik denk dat ik nog nooit zo veel mensen op 1 plek heb gezien. ZO. DRUK.

ARRIVED IN MARRAKECH!

Morning from Morocco! Yesterday evening we arrived here in Marrakech and the driver picked us up at the airport. He took us to the the villa, which is ah-ma-zing, but more about that later. Once we arrived in our room, we unpacked our suitcases and  freshened up a bit. Around 8.30 PM we all gathered in the living room, met each other (we’re here with 7 bloggers + friends) and had some dinner and drinks. The Steve Madden team told us about the brand, we saw the spring/summer collection and afterwards they spoiled us with even more shoes. We sat together outside, talked a bit and went to bed around 1.30 AM. I’m going to take a shower now, I think we’re going into town today. Will take my camera with me so that my next post isn’t all iPhone pics like this post hehe. Have a great weekend babes! X

MARCH PLANS

17076592_225611124573524_1301719723158798336_n Steve-Madden4 Steve-Madden3Is it the 3rd of March already? Here are some of this month’s plans!

Travel: this afternoon I’ll be traveling to Marrakesh. Steve Madden invited a couple of bloggers and we’re going on a girls trip! I’m taking Lise with me and we’re both preeetttty excited. Never been to Morocco, but since it’s an Arabic country it does feel a bit familiar some way. When I tell people I’m going to Marrakesh, most of them tell me it’s really nice, the food is amazing, but that I should be careful (for pickpockets or scams etc.).

Blog: I want to spend more time on my blog. Now that the grey, rainy winter days are over *knock on wood*, I can get back to taking outfit pictures on the streets while it’s sunny. I love spring fashion, so hurry up warm weather!

YouTube: yes YouTube, that’s a new category. I want to start making weekly vlogs! I’m doubting between Dutch and English vlogs though. Personally, dutch would be easier but I have more international followers than Dutch followers, so it would be more logic to do it in English. Decisions decisions.. Any opinions? Please help me out! :-)

Hair: I went to the hairdresser yesterday to go a bit darker! In my next blog post you will see how it turned out.

Family: the best of all.. this month my sister is expecting her second baby. I can’t wait to meet my new little nephew! Come already! (But please after my Marrakesh trip, otherwise I can’t rush to see you!) ♥

Some spring items:

CONCRETE JUNGLE – 2 LOOKS

Hello from an early bird! Woke up at 6.30 today and not because of my alarm, just couldn’t sleep anymore. I went out of bed, took a shower and now I’m writing this post with a towel on my head, hehe. Hope you had a great weekend babes!
Today I’m sharing 2 looks where I’m wearing the new River Island Studio collection. The theme is called Concrete Jungle and is all about femininity, botanical embroidery and sophisticated pieces. Since Amsterdam is not your typical jungle, I found a little magical garden to shoot some photos. On the first couple of pictures I’m wearing an outfit which is all black, just the way I like it! I really like the sandals, they are a real eye catcher. The open back makes this look a bit more playful (just a bit too cold for now though). The second outfit, which Sam and I shot in a botanical garden, is perfect for upcoming month. Not too warm, not too cold. Pretty simple yet feminine and I love the details of my jacket! Which one do you like more?! XX

Both outfits from River Island

Just some photos we took with my phone the other day!

I’m having breakfast right now and I’m excited for the weekend. I have a busy one planned. My weekend will be Tuesday & Wednesday this week hehe.. No, in all seriousness, it’s going to be a busy weekend but filled with fun things. After breakfast I’m going to have a huge cleaning session (boring but I can’t avoid it anymore :p), my brother & his family will come over for brunch, then Lise will visit me and we’ll shoot 2 different outfits for Monday’s blog post. Afterwards we’re going to the city to do some shopping for Marrakesh, hope it doesn’t rain. Tonight we’ll either go to the cinema or chill on the couch like 2 grannies.. Tomorrow’s planning is a bit more chill. Lise and I will go out for breakfast probably and in the afternoon I’m going to take pictures with Sam. This week I’ll publish a blog post every other day :-) I missed blogging so I’m excited to do this!

^ In collaboration with Stradivarius, Sam and I wore 2 total Stradivarius looks last week. Sam doesn’t really like standing in front of the camera, but he was excited about this project so I really liked that! Lise shot this photo in the red light district. We first thought of taking a photo stand with us, but Lise was around and helped us out! Dream team! :)

^ Last week while Lise was sleeping over at our place, I took her to Corner Bakery. I went here a few times before and  insisted that she should try out the milkshakes. The milkshakes over there are delicious! (and all of the food actually, you can’t go wrong with fruit + pancakes right? Mmmh)

^ This afternoon we went to Mediamarkt (not sure how to describe this store in English, a technology shop I guess?) to buy a new tooth brush. Not that exciting, but afterwards we walked pass this cute lunch place and decided to order some food. We actually sat here a few hours, enjoyed the food and the SUN!
