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!

Dikke vissa

Another clubnight for the books! Dikke Vissa is always fun to work at. Always busy and good vibes! I loved my look wearing the purple bandana. Not something I usually wear but I think it worked really well! Oh and see the cellulite on my butt and legs in the first pic? Just wanted to point that out, most women ‘struggle’ with it and it’s nothing to be ashamed of!

Happy new year!

Ending my 2018 the best way possible; doing what I love, surrounded by people I love. The past year has been weird; ups and downs, strange things happend, it was a struggle, but I managed to get through. I am proud of where I am now and I’m so ready for 2019! Big things are coming, changes are on their way. I’m excited, let’s go!

Champagne anyone?

Another new thing! I was having so much fun performing in this huge champagne glass. It was another new thing for me to do and I did have some burns and bruises after, but it was worth it. I like a challenge every once in a while. This was the first round that I was in the glass and I only had to throw around the rose petals to get most of them out. After this round they put some water in and I was literally bathing on stage haha, best job ever! Can’t wait for the next time I get to do this!
