I won an iPad Mini



Those who follow me on Instagram already know I won an iPad mini. While doing my internship at GLOSSYBOX I got the chance to compete in a pool with the other employees and I had to bet how the countries would do at the World Cup. Somehow I managed to end first :-) That is why I was the lucky person to win an iPad mini, thanks GB! I also received some magazines as a gift from Mart! xx

PS. Sorry for the grainy photos, I made them in the evening..

Piping 2.0: new closet


Some weeks ago I finally ordered all the materials I needed to make a new (hanging) closet. I spent so many hours online to find a closet that offered me all the space I need, looked nice and wasn't too expensive. It turned out that such a closet either doesn't exist or I just couldn't find it. Anyhow, I decided that it was probably better if I just made my own closet and that is what I did.

What I used:
(lightweight) aluminium pipes and alu fastenings to install the whole construction.

The good thing is that you can use the exact space you have. My problem was that the wall has a width of 297 cm and that most closets are either 200 or 300 centimeter wide. Now i could fully use the width of the room. I guess we can call this piping 2.0. :) What kinda closet do you have? xx

PS. Yes I really installed it myself.

In front of Tivoli in the center of Copenhagen



What I was wearing on my first day in Copenhagen, playing tourist. Even though it is pretty hot over here it was okay to wear an all black ensemble. Being near to the sea makes that the heat often is pretty good because there is a lot of wind as well. Still there are some moments that the sun really is burning on my skin (and not in a good way).

I've already been in Denmark several times and I really like the city Århus, but after spending some more time in København (Copenhagen) I think I can add it to my list of great cities as well. xx

MBAFW: Tony Cohen

 Wow, what an amazing dress! It was the last dress in the show, what a masterpiece. The material looks so great, it was floating in the air and moving graciously around dutch supermodel Kim Feenstra.
Loved almost all the looks at the show, great textures and material use! Even though I didn't really like the hats, I have to say that the accessories in general are beautiful. I also loved the color scheme at the show.

There was also a men collection. Actually it was Tony Cohens debut collection for menswear. I really liked the clean cuts and nice material use (satin looking trousers, fishnet tanktop etc)

Thanks CreamPR for having me! xx

MBAFW: Vibrant Pakistan


First part of the Vibrant Pakistan show. As you probably know it was Fashion Week in Amsterdam last weekend and I went to several shows and here are some photos I took. Somehow the light wasn't that great to take photos so I ended up with less sharp photos than usual. I decided to share some of the looks with you anyhow. So it was a really colourful show with a lot of beading, stitching and long lengths.


The second part of the show was dedicated to the menswear from the label Bareezé. I think all men looked really sophisticated and I liked the mixed material and print use a lot. I mean how amazing is the blue leather gilet on top of a crisp white cotton shirt. I'm also into the longer lengths at men, but also the short ankle height trousers.

They ended the show with more looks for both women and men. The colourful top/bodice with all these different materials, pompons and metal beads was definitely my favourite piece. And the audience was also surprised with a performance of six girls who were rocking some great dance moves on oriental music.

Thanks CreamPR for having us! xx

Olympus Playground


Yesterday I went to the Olympus Playground in Amsterdam with Zoë from The Daily Fashion Drug. It was a fun playground, unfortunately not as big as the one that was in Berlin a while ago. It was kinda weird because there was a signing session from a Dutch boyband called B-Brave in the same building, so it was really hectic with a lot of screaming young girls.

Upon arrival we got a Olympus camera with a SD card in it so we could make photos. At every booth there was a sign explaining which settings would result in the best shots. I liked the camera a lot, an easy camera to work with. I'm personally not so sure about the function with all the filter settings, the photos came out quite grainy. All in all I like the camera a lot. xx

What I brought home from Berlin

After spending so many months in the always amazing Berlin, I - of course - brought a lot of stuff home. Some books, magazines, almond body scrub, body butter, post cards, chocolate and nail polishes. Now I just have to find the time to read, eat and treat myself ;-) xx
