Peplum Princess says Spa time :)

Hi Everyone !



Wow let me first start off by saying it's soo HOT omg... But I'm not going to complain


Because I always start my post saying it's cold haha so I will keep my mouth shut about :)


There is nothing better then to come home from a long day of work, Eat, Fill up your bath,put on some music on and treat yourself with your favorite Lush products.


Well my lovely friends, when I stepped in to the door I saw a little box on the table, and as I walked closer the smell embraced and then I knew It !






My Lush order ! After my first visit to a Lush store I felt in love with their products and sweet sent.







This time I wanted more then just the Tea Tree Water so I ordered the following:


Honey I washed the kids soap.


Spacegirl Bath Bomb


Magneminty mask





And I got two samples too :) I got a little jar of Dream Cream and Oatmeal porrige soap :)




I haven't seen it when I was in the shop because I kept starring at their collection of bath bombs :p Normally the last time on my mind is soap but lately I want to give myself more attention I will call it :)





Okay I am sorry I didn't post so much this week because I was going to family party's and started working again of course but the sketching must go on so here is my outfit for today.







 So I wanted to make a video of my buys but it failed because I was not in front of the camera enough so I thought whatever let me just make a nice outfit sketch of a few of my recent buys from London :)




  • Peplum top from Forever21
  • Jeggings from H&M
  • Leopard belt from Urban Outfitters
  • Flats from H&M


I came I saw I bought

Hi Everyone !












OMG how are yall !! I've missed each and everyone of you lovely's !


It's good to be back with fresh goods and a just taking a break from my everyday life right :)


I followed everybody's tips and comments and again thank you for everything, Camden market was simply amazing ! Just like the city :) I also went to the mall in Stratford I don't know if my Brittish babes know where it is !


OMG like I've been everywhere, Topshop, Forever 24 ( in my case :P )


American Appereal , Harolds you name it ;)


I can't wait to show you my new buys and mix them with the pieces I have at home :)


Before I do let me show you what was waiting for me when I came home....




My Claw bracelet from Oasap !!!

 




I've seen this bracelets in a few blogs and I really liked it because it's not a standard classy girlie - girl bracelet but more rock-ish and different you know.


I was so happy to find this one at Oasap !


For those who don't know what Oasap is.. Oasap is a global online store selling high- street fashion items that really fit the trend of the moment !


One of the things I really like is there extreem good and fast service !


Gosh they deliver fast :P If you just as curious as I was when O saw this logo click on it and check them out and let me know what you think !

I hope I'm not writing to much, but I still need to show you my buys from my trip so I will get back to that ASAP :P




 

5 Day Get Away !

Hi Everyone !

 

So today is really a packing day for me because I have to pack the final things in my suitcase, download my magazines from Itunes and upload the latest True Blood episodes on my Ipad for the trip to France !




I will be away from you for 5 days but I will try to at least post something when I'm there :)

I really can't wait to go tomorrow ! I thought since I will be going with the bus first, not to dress to glamourus.. just jeggins, Vans , Zara mini shopper and a loose pony tail.

I hope to sketch some nice outfits for you there and maybe make a little video f my trip but we shall see ;)

So my appologies for late responses but I will comment back as soon as I get back home or at least across the belgium border :p




Before I come to and end with this post I wanted to share a article from a Brittish store called Very with you for once it's called something to shirt about :)



Something to Shirt About

Trends come and go. But one real skill of styling yourself is learning how to revamp staple pieces so thatthey never look boring. The classic shirt is a perfect example of how easy it is to keep an essential wardrobestaple looking fresh, season after season.






One of our favourite looks this summer is the shirt dress. It’s effortless and super cool – not to mention sexy – and is an easy way to go from a day in the office to night-time glamour.

Simply take off your tights and pull on some sky-high heels and your ready to go.

A belt is a must with a shirt dress to stop it looking frumpy.

If your waist is your best feature, cinch it in or use a belt placedloosely around your hips to give the dress a bit of shape.




If you’re concerned about your middle, invest in an empire line shirt, which will come in just below your bust.

An easy way to avoid splashing out on a new shirt dress is to nab your guy’s shirt.

You could even buy a man’stop, like a G Star shirt, in a size that’s big enough for you to wear it on its own.






Make like a classic American – see Jennifer Aniston for inspiration – and team your crisp, white fitted shirt with skinny dark jeans and heels for a look that’s incredibly chic and smart. It’s the perfect evening combination of sophistication and effortless cool.






For a casual, preppy look, team your shirt with a knitted vest top layered over it. Wear with a skirt, jeans, or even smart trousers for an office outfit.




This look also works with shorts and tights for a layered, smart-casual look.



A shirt can make a great warm weather alternative to the trusty cardigan. We Brits know how difficult it is to predict the weather, so when it’s slightly on the edge of warm, cover your vest top with a loose open shirt for a casual daytime look.




This look works perfectly with a stonewash denim shirt, which is bang on trend for summer 2012.




It also looks great as a beach cover up, if you fancy something less girly and a little sturdier than a kaftan.

 

TGIF

Hi Everyone !


Hope you are all well since it' s Friday !
For some it is already weekend and others might have to wait for about 8 hours ( like me ) But today is my last working day and I wanted to wear my jacket even though the weather is bad.

I really wanted to try the scarf- headband for once, and I thought why not test how it looks right away by wearing it to work.

Before I continue let me tell you something about my work...
We don' t necessarily have to  wear suits and just really a bit of office wear but people do !
So this outfit would be kinda tricky but I did it anyway and they loved it ( Thank ... !)

So after work I will be buying some cookies at Koekela which is a cookie shop in Rottedam that sells the best chocolete chip cookies, muffins,scones and my favorite Macadamia Nut Cookies  with white chocolate !
 I can' t imagine going  on a trip without these.. and DONUTS ! OMG I love donuts :P

For all my Dutch readers if you would want to  pay Koekela a visit when your in Rotterdam check them out here.
But for everyone visiting The Netherlands and Rotterdam check their English website out as well :)






Something New..


Hi Everyone !


So today I worked on creating a illustration for my posts !
I wanted to make a topic illustration for my posts such as DIY's, Reviews,Contests etc.
Hoping you like it :)


So to get back to the order of the day..
I as always,want to thank everyone for the loveley comments and tips for my trip to London ! I really appreciate all the effort taken to comment ad I will definitelly check out the markets there !


So today my outfit is simple but I'm saving my inspiration for Friday:)

Okay and as always it was cold for a summer day here.

17 degrees in Rotterdam with rain and wind so I just pulled out my trench coat which I later switched for my cape( sorry I didn't have time to shot a new pic ) and left for work !

Hope you like it !

 

 

 

 

Doing some Tuesday Thinking..

Hi Everyone !

 


So today I was so busy so I sketched up my outfit for you as I was in the subway to work.

 

I'm going to London in six days for a shopping trip so I'm really trying not to buy anything so that I can go wild when I'm there but OMG 6 days not buying even a polish or something is pretty freakin hard if you ask me !

I'm sorry my friends but I'm having trouble here you see.. I really need like maybe just a cardigan or something or that Aztec pants from Sugarlips No seriously maybe it's gone when I come back !

I'm not really a gambeler so I don't wanna to the risk :P ( HELP ME )

Don't tell me I need therapy to overcome my shopaholic- ness or something :p because there is a waiting list for that......

No just kidding... I will think about it...

 

Monki Stuff....

Hi Everyone !



I already posted pictures on Instagram with this bag, But not on my blog yet.

This is the Biggi Bag from Monki and I bought it around February I believe !

I liked it because it was so squire and simple, but because I later found out it didn't have any zippers, I used velcro to close the top, so I can also take my Ipad with me without worrying about rain in my bag !

I usally wear it like this but when I don't have to take many things with me I also like to fold it :)

So this will be my outfit for today ! :)

 

And here are just some magazine favorites !
Hope you like it :)
Love j

Friday Favorites !


Hi Everyone !





Today started cold but ended up being a great summer evening !
I wanted to post that I was cold but now I'm so freaking hot, so now that I'm working on my ootn I wanted to share my work outfit :)



So today I’ m wearing my jeggings simple black shirt, my heels and my Lanvin for H&M.

Btw who also owns a pair of Jeggins, and what do you think of them ?

I have about 5 pairs now because ever since I bought a black and blue pair I felt that I found a good replacement for my skinny jeans and denim pants in general.

I really find them so comfy and nicely tight around my legs, that I just can’ t wear anything else !

I would love to know what your opinion is about Jeggings too !

Do you think they are a good replacement for the standard skinny jeans, or do rather stick to you good old skinny’ s ?

Let me know !


So enough about skinny replacements and let’ s get back to my favorite part of the day which comes second in place after leaving work :P

My Friday Favorites !


Okay not that I have a lot of boobs to fill them but I really like bustier's.
I really want to order them but I’m scared it won’ t fit me an suit me good enough but I can’t help it dreaming of how I would wear it :)

So here we go !


Ooga Booga !

Hi Everyone !



When I was looking for a shirt I had thrown on top of my closet something else landed on my head together with the shirt !


The Lanvin clutch from H&M, still packed in a box, totally forgot I had it because I always carry so many things ! And a small clutch would never work for me, but still I thought maybe faith brought us back together again so for the first time in years I only carried my phone, wallet and ID card :) It was hard at first because I there were moments I really needed my MAC Blush or my tube of Detol to clean my hands...
but I'm okay now :P






Oh and I went to a store in Dordrecht near Rotterdam with my mum, and I we found a store
called D' Eekhoorn which sells really cool and interesting Inca and Maya jewelry and lucky but also unlucky me, it was the last day of the store !


So I got myself some goodies at least and one of them is this Totem Face Ring !


Hahah sorry to say this but when I was in the store the first time popped in my mind was
"Ooga Booga !" :p


Anyway I'm really happy with it since I like weird and unusual jewelry !


Givenchy Style !

Hi Everyone !

Today when I came home from a long day of working with boys around me, a pleasant suprise awaited me

Sealed in a black package.... It's my order from Romwe !

Remember this top I posted a few weeks back ?! .. Okay probably not anymore sorry about that :p

Let me fresh up your memory first with these pictures :)

 

 

This is Christine Centenera fashion editor for Harper's Bazaar Magazine, and I really love her style !

You should check her out on Google when you have the time ! :)

I posted a top from Romwe which was as good as similar to that beautiful top she wears from Givenchy's 2012 Spring Collection.

I saw it when I was checking a blog I guess and thank Chanel ! That she mentioned the store so I checked it out right away, and ordered it !!

 

I'm so exited, I didn't expect it to come so soon ! I couldn't wait to share you my outfit of the night, or maybe I'll wear it to work !

 

 

 

High Heel Workout Update !

Hi Everyone !



Al today I wanted to give you an update of my High Heel Workout process!
I must say now I start to feel the pain during the workout and omg when you have to take your shoes off !
But I stay strong and keep ahead with my training because.. One of those days.. I'll be walking like a rock-star :p
Okay I posted yesterday about my pictures from last years fashion week after party in Amsterdam.

Okay to give a short introduction I was kinda late because I had like more than an hour to travel by train and I planned to use what I call Tom Tom On The Go which in human language is using my Tom-Tom navigator to walk to the show but once I saw that the street would take us 1500 m to walk I took the first cab I could see.
Once arrive I was happy that the term " Fashionably Late" was still of common use because everybody was still gathering and mingling in the main hall.
I must be honest I never felt like appearance and looks meant so much as then, everyone looked amazing so their own style !

You know there was so much to tell ! All I can say is that it was an amazing night and that We partied
Until 7 in tha morning ! (And called for the day off !)

Maxi Monday !

Hi Everyone !

 

So today is Maxi Monday for me I really wanted to try out that look I've seen on blogs a lot, about wearing a sweater over your maxi dress or skirt.

I found my maxi dress from Carin Wester that I bought last year when I was going to the Amsterdam Fashion Week After party which was amazing btw..

Now that I'm typing this I remember that I made pictures ! I will post those photo's tomorrow ! I totally forgot I had them :)

So okay.. Noted.. I will post those pictures tomorrow together with my first update of my High Heel Workout !

Well anyway I don't want to bother you all to much so here is my outfit of the day !


Hope you like it !



 

 

 

 

Peacock Princess !

Do you remember this dress from Matthew Williamson for H&M ?

I loved his peacock prints and was very happy to have bought this dress that time.

Today I was in for a bright print so I wore this dress with my black pumps.

I wanted to post this look on monday but I couldn't wait so I'll just post my work outfit tomorrow and start drawing when I'm in the subway on my way home for you all which I would love to do for you.

 

 

 

Sizzle Tong Snake Print



So I've been working hard on new sketches, getting
my hair done and helping my mum prepare for our barbeque for today.


So yesterday night I had more time to sketch my outfits,I'm not completely finished but I couldn't wait to show you my new outfits so I'll start with yesterday's outfit.


Nothing special.. Like I mentioned I had to go to the salon today so I was only re-born when I walked out of there..


Am I the only one that believes that your hair is the most important thing of your appearance :p No really like, you can wear your cutest dress but if you look like one of GaGa's little monsters it's a problem.


So please forgive me! :)
