green and asian

Asian themed clubnight yesterday! Had this umbrella in my closet for the loooongest time now and could finally use it! It fitted perfect with this theme. How slick are my wings tho wuhu! Took them a little more to the side than I usually do to create a little bit of a different look and I think I did quite a good job 😊

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?

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💕 •

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!

Greens

Serious vs smiley face. Which do you like better? I’ve come to like my smile more, I used to really not like it tbh. I think I’ve come to a point that I’m accepting myself more and more, loving the way I am, loving how my mom and dad created me and how I am a mixture of them both.

Well that suddenly got a little sentimental. Anyways these pics were taking during another clubnight at Villa Thalia in Rotterdam, my second home for the past 4 years. I’m still enjoying everytime I get to work there. I’ve had some problems with  my motivation during the years I’ve been working there and I’m really thankful for the fact that they still believe in me!

Social Nomads influencer workshop

So last week I attended the ‘Create Content like an Influencer’ workshop by Social Nomads. Social Nomads is a company set up by Lynn form @whoisthatblonde, a former model and now influencer who earns her money through social media. It’s not my goal or anything to become an ‘influencer’, although it would be nice since I already really like creating nice pics for my instagram (and blog). I invited Britt with me, a girl I met through a very close facebook group. We never met before, but I really liked her instagram and thought she would like to join me and she did :). The workshop consisted of information and tips on how to grow your engagement by creating a nice feed, good photos and being active. Although I already knew quite a lot and I have my own way of editing my photos, the workshop was very helpfull. We also got the time to take some photos and who ever had the ‘best’ picture and used the tips to take the picture, won a lunch and photo session with Lynn herself. Unfortunately I didn’t win, but she did post my picture in her instagram stories. Thank Lynn (and Mailili) for the nice and educational afternoon!
