Life happens when you are busy making other plans (or writing theses for that matter...)

Ive been so busy lately with work and finishing my thesis that I couldnt find the time to update my blog :( On a brighter note; Ive been buying lots of clothes, shoes, jewellery, make-up (lotsa OPI's) and other superficial things that make life worthwhile ;) Be prepared for an update soon!

xoxoxo you know you love me

Working life!

Hey everyone - I've been pretty busy lately with my internship and from tomorrow on my new job! Anyway - that doesn't mean that I haven't been shopping of course ;) Last thursday I had a day off and my mother, aunt, cousin and I went to Haarlem all day. I got some great sheer dress tees, a long grey dress-sweater, a great black bag, some new ballerinas and some other stuff. Too bad that Haarlem doesn't have a Zara! Maybe I'll go to the Zara next saturday. Working life is soooo much different than the lazy student/uni life - I already miss it! Skipping classes, shopping whenever you want to, drinks with friends, drinks at night... ♥ I'm considering a PhD...

Floral jacket by H&M - Photos borrowed!

This morning I got super lucky as I found the jacket above, and I have been looking for one for months! I had already given up... yay!


For the dutchies out there:

This sunday - 'Zomergasten' will feature the Dutch fashion designduo Viktor & Rolf!

I will definately be watching it. You too? Enjoy!

Edit: Frankly, I thought it was pretty disappointing. Not a very good interview - I was bored to death apart from the clips that they showed.

Shorty pants and shorty shorts

So I bought shorty pants and shorty shorts - what do you think? Would you rock yellow nail polish?

"Hair can't just hang there like a dead thing on your cheeks"

During the weekend I either (1) don't watch MTV at all, or (2) Im obsessively fixating on it... it all depends on the 'weekend break'. This weekend it was The City weekendbreak and oh my, I got inspired to say the least. First off, I love love love the hair of these girls. And it reminds me how bad I need a new curling iron :) (my old one died after 1 try since it was a US curling iron and I got wrongly advised...) My favorite sidekick is Erin, I think her style is less obvious than let's say Olivia, but cool - plus I dig her bangs :) I wish I could have bangs like that!

Topshop midnight blue sequin blazer (£75)

woensdag 27 mei 2009


I just bought a nail polish out of the OPI Mexico line called Los Cabos Coral
What do you think?

I guess I am in a coral minstate lately. I saw this color, or something resembling this color on the nails of a friend and I needed a nail polish like it - so here it is!

Yesterday I purchased these amazing sequins on eBay with which I intend to do some serious DIY!
I love that the sequins are so huge (around 1") and not dented!
I especially like the irredescent ones!
I'll upload an image which resembles my DIY project tonight!

Celebrities ♥ Balmain heels

And rightly so! Who wouldn't wear them if you had enough money to buy them got them for free?

Well not me because my instep (nl: wreef) is crazy high which means that I cannot wear most of these kind of heels with lots of straps - since I cannot get into them! Yesterday I saw the most amazing shoes at the Zara - and I didn't fit those either :(

I love the Balmain green sequin dress on Jennifer Connelly by the way! Just lovely!

Whitney's style

If there is someone whose style I really dig it's the style of Whitney Port

I sometimes honestly catch myself thinking while shopping: 'what would Whitney wear?' ;)

Anyway, here are a few of her looks that I really like

Note the studded bag on the far left ♥

Song playing: I'll kill her - Soko

Hello lovers ♥

Both from ASOS (£65 & £285)

Ode to my city

Riding through the city on my bike all day
Cause the filth took away my license
It doesn't get me down and I feel OK
Cause the sights that I'm seeing are priceless

Everything seems to look as it should
But I wonder what goes on behind doors
A fella looking dapper, but he's sitting with a slapper
Then I see it's a pimp and his crack whore

You might laugh you might frown
Walkin' round Amsterdam town

*This song could really be about Amsterdam
