Earth Alchemy Factory - Atelier NL

During the Dutch Design Week I went to the Earth Alchemy Factory in the Bergmann kerk. Through this project Atelier NL "invites people to explore the world by learning and making as a community."

In the church they have their workplace in which they transform elements of the earth (e.g. sand and clay) into all kinds of items. For example, you can buy little bowls with baked sand in it, which in many cases turned into glass. There are also tiles in many earth colors, representing clay from different places in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany. The clay is also used for ceramics. The paint samples you can see are made of different kinds of soil.

In sum, it is a great project that shows you all the things you can do with simple natural materials. xx


Autumn Sun

Sorry for the lack of updates, I'm really busy lately! Doing two masters while also working parttime turns out to be rather time-consuming ;-) Plus blogging is getting harder because it is getting dark quite early nowadays which makes it hard to take photos. Luckily - after some rainy weeks - we've had some lovely sunny weather these past days so I managed to take some outfit photos for you. xx

Dutch Design Week

Yesterday was a day filled with design; in art, fashion, lifestyle, furniture, technology, etc. Mart and I went to the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven and had a nice day filled with inspirational activities, such as exhibitions, pop-up shops, graduation shows, etc. Above some photos. For those that still want to go, Dutch Design Week runs until sunday the 25th, find more info here. xx


Peugeot Single Speed

Last week I took my bike to the work and my colleague took some photos of it! Not sure if I ever told you, but I work at a photo studio so it made sense to take some personal photos. Last year I pimped this old bike and I'm really happy with the result. We had a lot of fun shooting these because I wanted some photos where I was really biking which turned out to be quite hard (not because I cannot bike, but because of the small space ;-) What do you think of the result and do you like my bike, I know I do!

Furthermore I'm wearing my new favourite sweater from the Danish ADPT. together with my trusty black Acne jeans. Below two more photos (with voluminous hair)! xx

Magnificent Sunsets

Love those sunsets! All photos are taken by me during my holiday in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Day after day we were treated with spectacular view like the ones above, the sunset often took almost two hours in which the sky faded into the most amazing colors. I especially like the pink/purple hues. xx Enjoy your Sunday!


Sunny Copenhagen

Here some photos from a short trip to Copenhagen. Would love to go back asap, I always want to spend more time in that lovely city. Maybe I should go there after finishing my studies, what do you think? xx

New in ADPT.

A few blogposts ago I already showed you some photos of the ADPT. showroom in Brande, Denmark and here are the items I brought home. As you can see in the photos above, I got a new grey sweat (a girl can never have too many comfy sweats right?!) and also a new denim shirt/jacket for my ever-growing denim collection. They are both of really thick quality and perfect for the colder days that are about to come.

In the looks above you can see how the guys at ADPT. styled the items for the coming winter collection - including many amazing jackets. Below you can see how I intend to wear the grey sweater, I already ordered a pair of dungarees so hopefully they'll fit and then I just have to wait till the baby blue coat is available.

Btw. I bought those black leather loafers last week and that means that I can finally tick them off my wishlist. Ever since seeing those studded Zara loafers two years ago I've been looking for a pair (the Zara ones were sold-out before I got the chance to grab a pair). Do you like the brand ADPT.? xx
