LOOK | Grandma's birthday look

Yesterday it was my grandma's birthday, which means talking to cosy and funny people who I haven't seen in a while. When I talk to those people I realize that I'm blessed with such a wonderful people around me. They always give me that feeling of home. 

Anyway, to continue to the outfit of yesterday. Because it was my grandma's birthday I decided to go for a look which is simple and dressy at the same time. And by adding the belt you give it an extra touch.

DREAMS | Everyone

Everyone has got dreams. Right? But what's the purpose of a dream when you're not trying to realize it? It's quite hard to realize some of them, I need to admit that. But hey life isn't always about roses, sometimes you just need some different thinking and different strategies.

PHOTODAIRY | These past two weeks

The past two weeks were over in a fingersnap. It was really insane. It mostly existed out of studying and studying oh and did I mentioned that I studied these two weeks? Oh I did? Hmm okay.

Anyways I was thinking it might be nice to see some pictures of my life the past two weeks, so I decided to put it into a bit of a dairy. And well here it is.

EXHIBITION | Jean Paul Gaultier

It's been a while since I've wrote a post on the blog, but no worries I have some nice posts for you guys. Starting with this one. Jean Paul Gaultier!

Jean Paul is an amazing cultural and fashion artist/designer. In my opinion he's both an artist and designer. His work brought things to the fashionworld other people were afraid of even try such designs. And no one would never, but never create something like the bra Madonna wore during her tour.

TRAVEL | Mallorca part 2

The last traveling post was also about Mallorca but it was the part 1. If you haven't read it you can click on this post; 'Mallorca part 1.'

Anyways, yes Mallorca the 2nd part. As I said in the first part we went out the clubbing the first night of our vacation and a few of my friends had a hangover the next day. The worst part about that was probably that there wasn't anything to eat in the apartment so we needed to get food and drinks first. Where? In the big supermarket about 15 minutes walking while it's more than 30 degrees. So there we went, to the supermarket. I can tell you going to the supermarket with people who have a hangover isn't a good idea especially when there is fish (what just arrived from the harbour) all over the place. That smell! Men, that really was disguisting haha , so not exactly the best medicine for a hangover.

YOUTUBE | Insane fun

On Youtube there are a lot of funny people or people who are trying to be funny of course. Many of you probably know Finn and Jack Harries. Their legendary 5 minute clips on Youtube has made them quite famous actually. And if it wasn't for those clips they wouldn't be flying all around the world right know. The fact about those clips is that it's absolutely hilarious. So surprise surprise that their Youtubecanal JacksGap has more than 1.7 million subscribers (Do you hear the sarcasm? No? Well I do) which is an insanely massive amount of people in my opinion. I don't know how they come up with these new subject for their clips every time but I wouldn't want to miss it. 

What if they didn't end up beginning to post some videos on their account in 2011? Oh gosh, I don't want to think about that, these kids (who are more than 1 year older than me but whatever) are too funny to keep this good stuff from the world. 

Oh and if you don't know these English brothers yet, click on the link. You probably won't regret it and if you did regret it: 'Wow, that's insane and above all not normal.' Oh and I kinda forgot something to say, they are twins and kinda adorable too.

And if the adorable twins are ever going to read this, that rivella stuff what I saw in this video isn't pee in a bottle haha. It's actually really a drink.


Well enjoy your day with Finn and Jack guys haha

CONCERT | Queen Bee

Remember how I told you guys that I got tickets to see Beyonce the 21st of April? No, well than just click on the link and then you know. 

Anyway, Lia (a close friend of mine) and I went by train to the concert together. At first when we arrived at the Ziggo Dome it was insanely busy outside, weird right?! Haha just kidding

 We had seattickets so unfortunately we weren't a few meters away from Queen B. But my god! This concert amazing, with a Capital A! The fact that we were able to be part of this show was enough, of course to be able to touch Mrs. Carter is amazing but the vibe of the show wasn't only on the ground. As soon as the concert began everyone was standing, dancing, singing and - of course I can't forget that- screaming. I was actually surprised I still had my voice after a 2 hour show the next day.

YOUTUBE | Amazing talent

As soon as I spotted this video on Youtube I became obsessed with the video. It's a audition from Britain's got Talent this year. It's without a doubt a huge hit on Youtube. The fact that they can translate an everyday story into such a masterpiece as this, is amazing and has a word what you call talented inside.

LOOK | Neon and studs

I absolutely like college, but now I'm just exhausted. It's like everything comes at the same time you know.. Papers, portfolio's, projects, learning, yeah I think that's it. Oh no wait I also need to go to school every day, how could I forget that? I guess that's something I have to accept. 

Okay my complaining is done and now it comes, the look of today. Well not of today to be honest, it's of last weekend when it was amazing weather with sun and not that much wind. Unfortunately the wind is back, yay! Oh that was a bit to enthusiastic, correction; yay....

TRAVEL | Mallorca part 1

Okay it's been a while ago since I've been there, but it's worth to put some photo's and stories on the blog haha. I'm sure you guys would like to hear some juicy and spicy stories from my vacation of 13 days with some of my best friends to Santa Ponsa, Mallorca. 

It began already when we arrived at the airport of Eindhoven. When we were sitting in the plane, me and my friend Amber saw a cute guy working. So of course we needed a picture of him as a memory of the beginning of our amazing vacation. We were all excited, which is barely to see at the pictures below.

MUSIC | Youtube video's

It's not only a habit but also an addiction to search and listen to the newest talents on Youtube. It's insane how many people are getting discovered trough Youtube, I absolutely like the idea behind it. Some people compare Youtube with talent shows as X factor, not The Voice because than you can't see the face in the first audition. To compare it to X factor isn't fair at all, in fact in my opinion it's way more brave when you're posting videos on Youtube. People are sometimes really harsh and tell people their ugly, I mean what the hell has that to do with singing?

LOOK | Summernight








Yes, I'm still waiting for the warmseasons to come. Unfortunately it was snowing again this morning. I mean, come on, it's the 30th of March be normal! I still remember of this date last year, people were swimming and nowadays there still on the ice... It's weird, so because I desire to the warm seasons I got a look for the warm seasons. And sorry for posting this post so late, the third period of college is unfortunately the busiest part of the year.

INSPIRATION | Magazines

When I buy magazines, and in my case fashionmagazines like the Vogue, Elle or the Marie Claire, I always get inspired by them. There are usually amazing pictures in and outfits with great combinations. So when I look in those magazines I get an idea what the trends were again. I mean I do look the fashionshows of course, but having it all packed together is way easier. It's not that I follow every trend right away. I look at the trends and wonder if I would dress like this and if it's my style, so not? Then the trend isn't the one for me.
Every year there are a few trends which doesn't fit me, well I'm all right with it.

LOOK | Blanc Noir




I think that there's something we all love to see and enjoy, especially when it has been such cold and bad weather the last month. Yes, I'm talking about the sun. The weatherman in our country are saying the weather is gonna be better soon. So what way is better for getting excited for the spring and summer season then by getting dressed for those seasons.

NYFW | Day 8

And then there was suddenly the last day of New York Fashion Week with Calvin Klein en Ralph Lauren. These are always two designers I really look forward seeing the show.

The last show of New York Fashion Week was there, Calvin Klein. The collection was really focussing on the waists of the models, which I definitely like a lot. By getting attention on the waist it gives an outfit just that extra piece of femininity that you sometimes need. There was a lot of leather in the show. Whole outfits are existing out of leather, however that isn't a bad sign. Of course it would be not a very great collection if it's only existing out of leather. The fact Calvin Klein used different sort of colours in de leather looks and is getting the attention the the waist makes definitely sense. In that way the outfit won't get boring and that's the same for the whole collection actually. The designs were so made that it's simple but at the same time powerfull.






But before the Calvin Klein there was Ralph Lauren. The designs of the Ralph Lauren show were exciting and surprising at the same time. You're probably thinking right now: Why were they so exciting and surprising? Well there's a good reason to call the collection and designs exciting and surprising. It looks like every single fabric that is existing was used.There was velvet, leather, fur and a thousand other fabrics. Okay that might be a little to much, however they did used a lot. Surprisingly were the gorgeous dresses, with a great eye for detail on the whole collection the designers have nothing to complain about. I guess this is gonna be a collection which sells good. Not just good by the way, it's gonna sell amazing.

MUSIC | Inspiration

Hello there, 
You guys probably know the feeling, you're walking alone and you put your music on and immediately begin to smile and sing.

Besides fashion, dancing and cooking is music also a passion of me. It doesn't matter where I am, at school or at home, I listen and dance to it all the time.When I typed the last sentence I kinda feel addicted haha. Music is something beautiful. It shares basically the diary of someone like Taylor Swift or Beyonce. Talking about Beyonce she wrote her last album while thinking: I don't care what people think of it, I want to be proud of it and I want to tell a story. I find this so inspirational.Oh and what do you guys think of her newest song Bow down of her upcoming album? In my opinion I think it's not my favourite Beyonce song, I'm more of the songs like Schoolin' life, End of time and Halo.

Timeless item | Black boyfriend blazer

A definition of a timeless item for me is definitely a boyfriend blazer. Combine a wide and long falling boyfriend blazer with  everything you would like. Black is the ideal colour to combine clothes with, the same as white or a jeans colour. The fact about a wide and long boyfriend blazer is it looks classy and chic, but at the same time you can look a bit bad ass. All right, bad ass is a bit to much haha. But it gives your outfit this extra little touch so your outfit isn't looking to chic or to classy for a normal day.

I have a black boyfriend blazer from Maison Martin Margiela for H&M. This blazer is a hard one and isn't easy to get in the perfect model. But when you've got it right, it looks much better than before. I'm wearing the blazer also in this post, so tell me what do you think of a boyfriend blazer as a timeless item? Do you've got also a boyfriend blazer? Or maybe the same as mine, what's your opinion of the blazer?

NYFW | Day 7

To chose two shows of this day was though, really though. But I made a decision. Michael Kors and J. Mendel are the two shows I'm writing about. The shows I was deciding out of were also Milly by Michelle Smith and Anna Sui, both designers are amazing and are very talented as well as the two designers I'm writing about this time. If you would like to watch the Milly show or Anna Sui, just click on the links.

Michael Kors is a designer who keeps surprising his audience. Kors began his career in fashion at the age of 19 designing and merchandising a collection for the renowned boutique Lothar’s in New York City. This label exists since 1981, pretty long already right? This collection is one of the many collections this season with prints. Kors also makes sure that the camouflage trend of last season still continues. In my opinion I just wear what I like combined with some trendy items, but for the ones who totally want to be completely trendy they don't need to throw their camouflage items away. I really loved the bright colours Kors used. Some of the looks are so simple, but look at the same time so classy that I really admire his design skills. And to make long short, I liked his collection haha.

 

Then J. Mendel. All I've got to say about this collection are the following words: Damn, this collection are a masterpiece. Absolutely stunning. His collection is so gorgeous that I can't believe that there would be anyone who doesn't love at least  8 looks of his collection. Truly insane this collection. This is why I love watching fashionshows, a lot of different material was used, different silhouettes, some trousers between all the dresses and the perfect combination of lace and other fabrics. This collection was really fascinating to see. My props to J. Mendel!

FOOD | Making a 3 course Part 1

I really, but really, like to cook. So when my mum asked me to cook a 3 course dinner for 10 people I said of course yes. It took some preparation, but it was worth it. The guests ate a lot, so I guess that's a good sign right?

You might think, why the hell is she talking about a dinner this is a fashionblog? Well I was thinking that you guys maybe would like to have to recipe and I'm kinda turning this blog really into my thing with fashion of course, but than a little bit more personal. With sometimes some cooking things, of course fashion and even some concerts. So one million styles it is right?  So here's the recipe than finally haha.

The dinner started with a pasta salad with pesto, red union, paprika and collar. The fact about this recipe is that's so easy to make and it takes some preparation, but when you've done that it'll be ready in about10 minutes.

So if you would like to make it yourself, the recipe is below. I got the recipe from a Dutch site which I forgot, but the recipe is so easy to make that you won't need it any more after making this dish.
- olive oil (a good one)
- a red and yellow paprika
- cherry tomatoes (about 10, if you would like to add some more just do it, the tomatoes aren't going to dominate the dish)
- 1,5 red union
- 2 pieces of garlic
- 2 spoons of pesto (or a handful of basil or you just do it both haha)
- pepper and salt
- a quarter of  a red pepper
- pasta (500 gram)
- collar
(if you would like to make some more, you just take more pasta, pesto, collar, paprika, tomatoes and pepper)

Step one
Cut the union and paprikas in slices. Take the seeds out of the quater of red pepper and cut in it little pieces. 
 
Step two
Put a pan with water on a gas burner or whatever thing you're cooking on haha. You need to look at the sticker of the pasta for how much water. 
 
Step 3
When the water is boiling you add the pasta and the cherry tomatoes. Because the tomatoes are boiling with the pasta they become sweet and fall mostly apart in the pasta.

Step 4 
Put 3 spoons of olive oil in a cooking pan. After the cooking pan became hot you're adding the union, paprika and pepper. You need to add some black pepper and salt to them. You can also add some Italian herbs. At last you're adding the garlic pieces by squeezing them in a garlicthingie haha. I don't know how you guys call it in English. Or if you don't have one of them you can also cut the garlic in little pieces.

Step 5
Bake the things in the cooking pan until there  cooked- through. The union is ready when they become light transparent. When everything is cooked- through put it on a low fire.
 
Step 6
When everything in the cooking pan in cooked- through the pasta and the cherry tomatoes probably will be ready to. It depends on which pasta you're using. Make sure you drain off the pasta correctly.  Turn the gas burner off of both places then add the pasta to the cooking pan.

Step 7 
Add the pesto and stir it in the pan. After this you're adding the collar and stir it again a few times.









 
 
Last time I ate it with some fresh bread out of the oven, but you can eat it with everything you want of course.

Well, then there's one last thing to say,

Bon appetit

NYFW | Day 6

The 6th day of New York Fashion Week on the 12th of February was THE day of Vera Wang and Diesel Black and Gold. Also Badgley Mischaka's collection appeared on the catwalk this day, I decided to tell you guys something about Vera Wang and Diesel. I didn't write about Badgley Mischka. They have amazing dresses, I can't deny that, but I thought their spring and summer collection was more fresh. I know, I know. It's their fall/winter collection, but some things can be a little less brave. Badgley and Mischka have been hailed by Vogue as one of the "Top 10 American Designers", totally deserved in my opinion and I totally understand why people on the red carpet would like to wear their dresses. There were a lot of gorgeous items in their collection, so watch the show here.

So Vera Wang than. The thing about Vera Wang is that she is so refreshing. Every collection is totally different than the last collection. So refreshing is exactly the right word for her collection, although it's the fall and winter collection she's using some different fabrics which makes her collection flawless and wearable. The prints she used aren't annoying, but have exactly the right proportion and colours. I don't know how she does it, year after year, as a lot of other designers  of course, but being a designer is a though and hard working job. 
 

Diesel Black and Gold was black. Really black with a few white items between. I think it's great how they created such a great collection almost all in black. You need to be so creative as hell haha, but how are they doing it? It's amazing! They made such a wonderful collection with a lot, and then I mean a lot, of different material. That's the only thing you can do if you want to turn a mostly black collection into a success. And they definitely succeed. With a collection like this, so wearable and at the same time a bit tomboyish. Well I'm a fan!

LOOK | Flowerpower bikerchic

It's been a while since there was my last post with a new look. Also thanks to last fashionweekseason, I was a bit too busy with watching shows and pictures, but here's finally a new look. 

Remember I told you guys on my twitter that I went in Utrecht shopping with my mum? Well the blouse is one of my new purchases and I absolutely adore the flowerprint. Just easy for a day to hang out with some friends or go to college of course. The flowerprint makes the blouse immediately an eye catcher, so a few accessories, black trousers and sneakers. Well remember I said in this post I really didn't want to have any other sneakerwedges than Isabel Marant? So I looked everywhere and they weren't of course anywhere available... And I really wanted to have sneakerwedges so badly that I just bought a very good replica of the Isabel Marant sneakers. These ones are from Steve Madden and were available. So you might think why the hell did she said in the first place she didn't wanted to have something else then Isabel? Well there's one simple answer for that, I got so lost in loving Isabel Marant I missed a little important detail. I really didn't saw it coming that it's a little, tiny bit too expensive haha.

NYFW | Day 5

The designers of Day 5 of NYFW were definitely Carolina Herrera and Marc by Marc Jacobs. These two are amazing designers with every year on and on great pieces which are selling amazingly good over the whole wide world. Were their collections also great this year? Oh yes, they were!

Marc by Marc Jacobs is every year another great, but pleasant suprise. This year he chose to be different then the other shows of NYFW again. The collection was very fun to watch and at the same time pretty wearable. With wide, long coats and attention on the waist he combined a few of the trends of this fall and winter in a colourful mixed show. The fact he used a lot of colour spoke to me. A few designers this fashionweek took fall and winter a little to serious with their collection totally in black or dark colours. Marc Jacobs didn't. If you've seen this show you'll get immediately a smile on your face of all the different colours and looks. He also used a lot of prints which reminds me of the sixties, there's nothing wrong with a bit of discofever right? haha



Secondly Carolina Herrera. Carolina Herrera has always a very feminine collection. The models always look chic, but not to chic if you guys know what I mean. The collection is this year also  existing of long, feminine dresses. There was a lot of attention on the waists of the models which I liked. She used different sorts of fabric as velvet and leather in her looks. It's a whole other collection of last year, but you can definitely see that this is the Carolina Herrera collection. Carolina Herrera used the prints in this collection a good and classy way, if she didn't it would've looked trashy and cheap. This is everything except trashy. An amazing collection, by an amazing designer.
