Hi everyone!

I’ve been wanting to show you  the pictures I took throughout the year because I can honestly say I’m very proud of them. Please do remind yourselves of the fact that I’m not a pro, i don’t even own a real camera.

See you soon

 Hi everyone!

I took a break from blogging the past week because I was extremely busy with school, exams and stuff like that. Thank god it’s over know, I was starting to get very tired from all the revision. I did find something to help me though; it sounds weird but candles seem to help me study better, I don’t know why but it really worked. I hope my results are okay, but I’m pretty sure I completely messed Management and Organisation up :(.

On a more positive note, I am totally addicted to Gossip Girl, I am late on the trend, I know, but I just never got round to watching it! New York, Chuck Bass and Nate Archibald of course (hehe) are great, not to mention the amazing wardrobes everyone in the show seems to own!

For now I’ll leave you with my list of favourite clothes I’ve seen on the Internet, And oh my god, there are so many items I want to buy but I resisted the urge to put everything in my shopping basket.

Ps: would you like to see outfit posts?

I’d love to hear some of your suggestions on sale-shopping.

Ever think to yourself, I could never pull that off, but it sure is fun watching someone else do it! ?

Hi everyone!

I am not a big fan of accessoires, I don’t own a lot of necklaces, earrings or handbags. I like to focus on essential pieces in my closet, like jeans, sweaters and blouses. However, I am not trying to say that I never wear accessoires because I do, but I don’t feel like I need to buy a lot of them to create diverse outfits!

But recently I am getting into hats, even though they are accessoires I find that they can give you a parisian, sophisticated but at the same time, cool look. Shops offer a huge amount of hats  and I feel like I don’t even know where to begin so I’m just going to give it a go and do an inspiration post all about hats.

Even though hats look really nice on and everyone seems to love them, I find it a bit scary to wear them. It’s a bit of a statement and I don’t know if I can pull them off, but we’ll see in the (near?) future!

See you soon!

Ps: Do you guys like all these inspiration posts?

What’s your favourite piece of clothing? And do you like hats?

Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar.” I Cornelia Funke, Inkspell

Hi everyone!

Do you ever have one of those days where you just want to lay in bed all day and do nothing? Well, I definitely have and as it happens, today is one of those days. I know this is kind of strange but when I was a child I didn’t enjoy sundays that much, I always felt like I was wasting my day, whereas now I’m glad to do nothing and just read a book or something from time to time.

The holiday has flown by and to my great disappointment school will be starting tomorrow so I have to catch up with some of the homework I left to my last day off. I did finish some assignments earlier though! Luckily I’m an organized person so it’s not in my nature to leave everthing to the last day.

See you soon!


Do you take a day off sometimes? What do you like to do when you’re chillin?

The start of something new!

Beyond ready for the new year, starts our amazing year, pretty damn excited about it all...

Hi everyone,

The title of this post hasn’t got anything to do with High School Musical in case that popped into your mind but everything with New Years Eve. 2014 has honestly flown by and 2015 is almost here! This year was wonderful, I ate sushi for the first time (and lóved it), I read a lot of English books, I started my own blog (after months of indecisiveness), I went to Lille and Amsterdam (2x), I drank loaads of tea, I went to the One Direction concert and I discovered loads of new musicians.

So this was my 2014 in a nutshell, I hope yours was amazing as well but before I go and wish you a happy new year I want to share my 2015 aspirations. Even though literally every blogger does this I still want to write them down, just as a little reminder to myself to stay close to what I want to achieve.

My goals:

1. I want to buy my own blog domain (.com instead of

2. I want to save some money to put in a jar, so I can use this if I want to go somewhere cool.

3. I want to go to a thriftshop.

4. I want to go outside more and especially run more.

5. I want to enjoy the little things in life more.

6. I want to see +/- 25 movies.

7. I want to read at least 10 books.

8. I want to go to England

9. I want to get a job

10. I want to reach 1K on Instagram

11. I want to get 100 followers on Bloglovin

12. I want to eat a Tony Chocolonely chocolate bar

13. I want to start shooting outfitposts

14. I want to get better at photography

And last but not least: Happy early new year to all of you!

See you soon!

What are your new year’s resolutions?And how was your 2014?

Hi everyone!

Guess who’s back, back again. You can probably all guess who it is I’m talking about ;). I haven’t posted anything for a week now because I was on Holiday in Austria with my family and some friends. I just came back and it was honestly so much fun; lots of skiing, laughter, tea, friends and snow. It was pretty great, even though there wasn’t much snow on the slopes we were lucky enough to be able to ski every single day.

December flew by so fast and now that I’m back home I really miss the beautiful view of the white mountains in Austria. On the way back home yesterday, snow started to fall from the sky and everything turned white, including the streets of The Netherlands. The sight of snowflakes never fails to cheer me up and make me feel all festive!

Back to skiing now, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love skiing and everything involved but I really hate wearing all those tight, shitty leggings and ugly sweaters so I decided to do a #whattowearwhenyoudon’twantolooklikeanidiotontheslopes blogpost. Here we go!

Ski attireSee you soon!

Do you love the mountains as much as I do? And what do you like to wear when it’s cold outside?

Instagram favourites #2


Hi everyone!

Once again, I’m going to round up my favourite instagram accounts for you lot. I’ve been quite active on instagram lately and I’ve been following a lot of new great photographers and bloggers who are allsuper talented! (Jealousy anyone?)

I find that there’s nothing better than scrolling through your instagram timeline filled with gorgeous pictures in the morning whilst drinking your tea. So, I present you my favourite instagrammers (Is that what you call them?), they deserve a little place on my blog and I’m glad to introduce them to you, hopefully you’ll love them as much as I do.

1. Barbaraschoumacher

It seems like Barbara uses some kind of magical app, because her pictures turn into actual artworks! They are quite romantic and have a nostalgic feel. Love her!


I’ve only just recently found this account, but I absolutely love it! Christie has done such a good job with her instagram account! You’ll find a lot of nature, mixed with style and fashion on her account.

3. Ellagracedenton

Oh my, what a lovely girl, she’s such an inspiring person! I sometimes feel like her personality is not real, she’s just so kind! I also really like that she loves to try something different from time to time, not everyone does that, she thinks out of the box.

4. Oceanpainter_

It was only yesterday or the day before, that I found Jessie’s account. She’s got her own blog too and I love the way she edits her photos. They look so gorgeous, she really has great editing skills. AND, she lives in London so you can expect to see lots of awesome shops and christmassy lights.

See you soon!

I want to know what your favourite instagram accounts are, leave a comment below and I”ll definitely have a look!
