Monki Arnhem

After I dropped off Sam to train with TeamNL in Papendal, I went to the center of Arnhem to have a late breakfast with myself and maybe do some shopping. I had never been in Arnhem before so didn’t know what to expect. The weather was shit and I only had 1,5 hrs to kill so when I came out of the parking garage and saw a Monki store nearby, I went in there straight away. There was still a lot on sale and that weekend was another 20% off of the sale. Happy me! Turned out everything was even cheaper than the pricetag said so I payed only 6,40 eur for a 40 eur sweater! Love it! Besides the cool and unique stuff at Monki I also love their interior. The mirror walls in the staircase are just awesooooome. Thanks girls at Monki Arnhem for your good service and the nice talk we had!

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!

VERYUS

veryus clothing owl cap
Last week the founder of VERYUS contacted me asking if I ever wear caps. ‘Well, yes sometimes I do’, I answered. Two days later I received this very cool owl cap in the mail.
The cap has snapback and it fits me very nice around the head. It’s also very comfortable and perfect for the sunny days you don’t want to wear sunglasses but don’t want to be squeezing your eyes all the time either. The white part at the bottom of the ‘sticking-out’ part is white cobra print faux leather, which looks and feels very luxurious.

I wanted to know some background information about the brand, so I asked the founder of the brand, Julien Winkel, some questions:

How would you describe VERYUS?
To Explain Veryus I always use the following words: “Exclusivity, Elegance and Quality”. An important point, that I use sincethe start of Veryus, is that every product is Limited. Most of the time one product is really popular, like my blue suede cap, other brands will order more caps if their product runs out of stockbut Veryus wants to stay exclusive and we will not order more to keep the product limited.

When, how and why did you start?
I started Veryus because I had an inner feeling to make something big out of something small. Just like to plant a seed and watch and help it grow into a nice concept. Apparel always grabbed my attention, if you are walking down the street you recognize the kind of people by their clothing. In my home city, Amsterdam, street wear is really present, think of labels like Filling Pieces and Daily Paper. A lot of people are really biased about street wear nowadays, they think most street wear clothes are really baggy. I want to achieve the opposite, street wear can be decent and elegant. This new trend is named street couture.

What would you like to achieve in the future?
What I want to accomplish in 2014 is to make a lot of new collections for shirts but especially caps. The majority of the brands release 2 or 3 collections per year (summer/spring and autumn/winter). However I like to release a new collection if the other one is sold out. Of course I will keep the colours of the season in mind. For example I started selling this collection at the beginning of February; yesterday I ordered the new collection, sneek peak: more suede! I started designing by myself for the new summer collection T-shirts, last month I went to city archives to get inspiration for artwork about Amsterdam, the city I am raised and born. I love Amsterdam and I am a proud citizen, that’s why you can find 3 crosses in the logo of Veryus.

If you’d like to check out what they all got and also to order something, check out the VERYUS website here.

Preparations..

This weekend is all about packing everything for the Miss Intercontinental final in Germany. I will leave tomorrow morning, the final will be December 14th and I will be home December 16th in the afternoon. I suck at packing, I always want to bring way too much, but I have to look my best every day. Big thanks to my sponsors: Pierot, Jaimie’s Aalsmeer, Angelic Bruids en Avondmode, RunwayvibeJosh V, Marcelle Markus (bikini), Deja-Vu Airbrush Tanning and everyone who helped me preparing and collecting everything! I can’t wait to show them all what I’ve got and what I have to offer. Wish me luck!

A small internship

Two weeks ago a former rhythmic gymnastics friend send me a message on Facebook asking me if she could do a 2 hour internship with me. I decided to give it a go and planned 2 hours of working on my blog, making pictures of the Grazia Goodiebag and also making pictures of her and us together. We had a lot of fun and I told her everything she wanted to know about starting a blog, modelling and so on. She really wanted to make some nice pictures so I gave her a pretty blouse to put on and also borrowed her my Jeffrey Campbells. She never walked on heels, but she looked so pretty and confident! I hope you like the pictures! She’s sweet right?:) // Twee weken geleden kreeg ik op Facebook een berichtje van een oud ritmisch gym vriendinnetje. Zij moest een 2 uur durende stage lopen en wilde dat graag bij mij doen. Ik vond het goed en plande 2 uur waarin we werkten aan mijn blog, foto’s maakten van de Grazia Goodiebag en ook maakte ik foto’s van haar en een aantal foto’s samen. Ik vertelde haar alles dat zij wilde weten over een blog starten, modellenwerk enzovoorts. Ze wilde heel graag wat mooie foto’s maken dus gaf ik haar een mooi blousje om aan te trekken en leende ik haar mijn Jeffrey Campbells. Ze liep normaal nooit op hakken, maar ze zag er prachtig en zelfverzekerd uit! Ik hoop dat je de foto’s leuk vindt. Ze is lief he?:)

JOSH V

Today I paid a visit to The Josh V headquarters to pick out some clothing for my two weeks in Germany ahead of the Miss Intercontinental final. She was very nice and together with her assisent we chose some nice stuff! I won’t show you anything yet, I’ll keep it a surprise :). I am very happy with what they are letting me wear! It will be clothing from the newest collection ‘Black&Wild’ which isn’t available in stores yet, but will be soon! // Vandaag heb ik een bezoek gebracht aan het hoofdkantoor van Josh V om wat kleding uit te zoeken voor de 2 weken die ik in Duitsland zal zijn voorafgaande aan de finale van Miss Intercontinental. Ze was heel lief en samen met haar assistente heb ik een aantal mooie dingen uitgezocht! Ik ga nog niets laten zien, ik zal het een verrassing houden :). Ik ben heel blij met wat ik van ze mag dragen. Het zal kleding zijn uit de nieuwste ‘Black&Wild’ collectie die nog niet in de winkel is, naar binnenkort wel!

My fall/winter H&M picks

The fall/winter trends this year seem to be based on 2 colors: darkgreen and dark/wine red. I like both colors a lot. Especially the red, because I think it compliments blonde hair. Also the plaid blouses came back! Either wear them buttoned up or tie them around your waist/hips. I found some nice stuff from H&M on the website to follow the trends! // De herfst/winter trends dit jaar lijken te draaien om 2 kleuren: donker groen en donker/wijnrood. Ik vind beide kleuren erg mooi. Vooral de rode, want ik vind dat rood erg mooi staat bij blond haar. Ook zijn de geruite blousjes terug! Draag ze helemaal dicht geknoopt, half dicht geknoopt of om je middel. Ik heb wat leuke items gevonden op de website van H&M die bij de trends aansluiten!

Rihanna’s style

I am a huge fan of Rihanna. Girlcrush! She is stunning and of course I love her songs. The way she dresses is sometimes a little to much, but I love how she doesn’t seem to care what others think. I admire her for wearing what she wants and being ‘out of the box’. Here are some of my favorite latest outfits of Rihanna! // Ik ben een grote fan van Rihanna. Girlcrush! Ze is super mooi en natuurlijk vind ik ook haar liedjes erg leuk. Soms is haar manier van kleden een beetje TE, maar ik vind het tof hoe zij zich niets aantrekt van anderen. Ik waardeer haar om het dragen van wat ze leuk vind en haar originaliteit. Hier zijn een aantal van mijn favoriete outfits van Rihanna van de afgelopen tijd!
