Champagne showers

Another night in my glass haha. This was so much fun! Just playing around, throwing confetti, feeling sexy. Yup I felt hella sexy :)! My right knee was quite bruised after tho, since I was sitting on it all the time oops. But it’s okay, it was worth it!

vegas style

This was my outfit in the champagne glass! It was a Las Vegas themed night and the gold and glitter fitted very well. Don’t worry; before getting into the glass I took off my heels and the cardigan otherwise I wouldn’t be able to move in the glass haha. The top is from Hunkemoller which I spiced up myself with the rhinestones. The same for the underwear only that is from Primark. Put some more glitters on my eyes and fixed a high ponytail and the look was complete! I loooove it! What do you think?

My champ

Last weekend it was boxing time! The Dutch Nationals were held at the Worldhotel Wings at Rotterdam/The Hague airport. Sammy had to fight his semi final on saturday. This was my first time seeing him box live and I was so nervous. I think I was even more nervous than for my own shows. I was feeling sooo proud when he walked down those stairs and everyone was cheering and clapping for him! That’s my man! He started off so well, the first round was definately for him. And then the second round.. At around half of the round HE KNOCKED HIM OUT! Finals the next day! Unfortunately Sam had to take a drug test which he had to drink a lot for. At the same time he had to be under 69kg the next day for his fight. He had a really hard time but managed to come back to under 69kg the next day. Uff that was a tense moment to be honest!

The next day it was finals day. I was even more nervous than the day before; I barely slept and my stomach was feeling like it was beeing squeezed all the time. He fought like a beast, so did his opponent. In the end it was a very close call and Sam won the silver medal. Despite the result which was a disappointment for him, I am so freaking proud of him! He has nothing to be ashamed off. You know; you learn when you loose, you don’t learn when you win..

Next up for him is a tournament in Hungary. I really wanted to come with him because I have friends living in Budapest, but the tournament is a 3 hour drive away so that’s not really gonna work unfortunately. I know you’re gonna rock it baby! I’ll be there for you, as always.

Blue Monday?

Blue Monday say whaaat? No Blue Monday for me! This was my styling for one round during the clubnight on January 18th. I really like how this look turned out! The hair made it very playful and young. Or something like that. Anyways, I think it just looked very cute and I felt comfortable wearing this. New fav hairstyle too!

Sapmeesters Sapkuur

Zoals jullie op mijn instastory hebben kunnen volgen heb ik vorige week een sapkuur van Sapmeesters gedaan! Ik deed de ‘gentle’ kuur van 3 dagen. Elke dag begon ik met 1 shot citroensap (gemixt in 150ml warm water), een cranberry en een aloë vera shot. Vervolgens nam ik de 4 vitaminepillen en begon ik aan mijn eerste sapje. Tussendoor een gezonde reep, daarna weer een sapje. Als oppepper nam ik de bouillon en daarna weer een snack. Aan het laatste sapje voegde ik de zaden toe. ‘S avonds verwarmde ik de soep; alle 3 de soepen waren echt zalig! Ik vind deze kuur een absolute aanrader. Ik voelde mij top, heb gewoon een show gedaan (die overigens buitengewoon goed ging) en ik voelde mij strakker in mijn vel. Of ik ben afgevallen weet ik niet; ik heb geen weegschaal in huis. Niet alle sapjes waren mijn smaak, maar echt, deze kuur is SUPER GOED te doen!

icey

All white err-thaaang! Obviously the theme was snowy, icey, white. Tonight it was Global Beats x Snow Globe time! Of course that meant make-up playtime for me so I added some silver glitter to the eyes and some snowflakey things to the cheeks/temples. Thought it was kinda cute 🙂

Mercedes-Benz staff party

We had a staff party last night at Gomes Noord-Holland Mercedes-Benz in Alkmaar! The dealership was fully packed. We had a nice dinner and some drinks and talked with some of our new colleagues. My shoes were kiiiiiilling me tho! I had to work the next day from 8 – 17 and when I woke up I could barely stand straight becaus my knees were hurting so bad. The outfit was worth it tho haha. I bought the dress on sale at the Bijenkorf the same day. I got the Loub’s one year ago in New York and of course my new Valentino bag was the finishing touch 🙂 I was all gold and black, love it!

Scoliosis insecurity

I wouldn’t normally post this first picture without reshaping some parts of my body. You might be wondering what the heck I would’ve reshaped. Well, I’ve been diagnosed with scoliosis when I just turned 15. Because of the curvature in my upper back (I also still have a small curve in my lower back), my right shoulder blade and some ribs are being pushed out which makes my back and side look really big from certain angles. This is a huge insecurity of mine, one I frequently photoshop because I’m scared of what people will think and also because I don’t like the way it makes me look. Honestly sometimes I feel like I look like Quasimodo. This time I wasn’t able to reshape it because of the straight lines of my closet and rug, but I wanted to post it anyway to tell you about this. I hope that by telling you this little inside story and admitting to this insecurity of mine, I can show you that everybody is dealing with insecurities and it’s okay to have them💕 •

Valentino rockster Spike velvet

SAY HELLO TO MY NEW BAAAAAAG! I’ve been eye-ing one of those Valentino bags for a while, but thought they were way too expensive. I also thought I wanted the smaller size, but when I tried it out in the store just to see if my daily stuff would fit, I came to the conclusion that it was too small for me and I was gonna get annoyed by the fact that I had to squeeze my stuff in. But then.. Between christmas and NYE Sam and I passed the Bijenkorf after dinner, just 5 minutes before closing. I literally put my hands in front of my mouth when I saw this bag standing there, calling my name AND having a sale tag on it! I was so happy it was ridicilous hahaha. Then I also saw it was 50% off. To me it’s crazy they put such a classic bag in such a wearable ‘color’ on sale, but I couldn’t be happier. I tried it on and fell in love immediately, but I was in doubt since it has gold hardware and my jackets all have silver hardware.. In the end I just couldn’t resist the bag and got it. No regrets! I love it and I use it a lot.

Donkey campaign

Something very different than what you usually see from me, but this was very cool to do. I was actually really sick this day (for 3 weeks in total), but still managed to bend here and there. This campaign is for Donkey, a very original, innovative and environmentally focused brand whose bags are handmade and recyclable. The material is super strong which makes them very durable as well.

The amazing styling was done by Lisa Anne Stuyfzand. She got amazing pieces at Net-a-Porter which made me feel very special. The pics are made by amazing photographer Justine Leenarts. Wara Juana Gutierrez Mamani, the woman behind Donkey, organized the photoshoot. Thanks for this shoot girls!
