As Autumn has officially started this week its time to bring on the fall colors and ofcourse the layering. I'm very exited to start dressing up for Fall and the gorgeous colors of the leaves and just nature overall. But we are still experiencing some late Summer weather and therefore I decided to wear my Summer items one more time before transitioning to my Fall wardrobe.
I decided to wear my army green shorts with emerald details on the pockets. I wanted to pair it up with something bright as we are officially saying bye bye to Summer. Therefore I picked this white cold shoulder blouse, which is going to be a mayor trend this Autumn, so get yours now while you can!
And as we are saying goodbye to Summer I wanted to wear these gorgeous ballet espadrilles one more time. I love the details which give a 3D effect, as the embelishments are hand stitched sequins in the form of flowers.
Outfit details: // Shorts - H&M // Blouse - ASOS (on sale now) // espadrilles - ASOS //
Probably the favorite of many women, the blazer. Not only does it make an outfit look sophisticated and a lot more expensive, it also looks amazingly fashionable when styling it the right way. Good news ladies because the black blazer is making its come back, this time with a longer version.
Yes the long blazer has been spotted and will be the go to jacket you will want to wear currently. It also fits in with any outfit in mind which makes it perfect for the Summer – Autumn transition. Wear it all black and chique or throw in a pop of color and add it to an outfit with Autumn florals.
Last sunday the annual Emmy’s took place, the 68th edition to be exact and oh boy did I love some outfits. I love award ceremony’s like these as everybody gets glammed up and try to look their best, kind of like me at Christmas!
However There were some hits and misses like always and as always we need to form our opinion about it. Why? Because it’s fun and everyone can have its opinion.
I like this look at it looks gorgeous on here as the nude fits in perfectly with her complexion. I also love that the drape is sheer and looks very fairytale – like.
I love this glamorous but sophisticated look she has going in her. It looks very classic Hollywood and she wears this dress perfectly. This is something I could definitely see myself in!
I love love love this dress. It looks like this dress is made for her and she looks stunning in it. I love the floral details as it covers the whole Autumn trend that’s going on right now.
Eventhough the jumpsuit is black, it still shows a lot of curves in the wrong way. Normally black is the safe way to go, this time.. not so much. The change of fabrics make her look bigger than she actually is.
One thing that does look great is the color together with her complexion and hair. But that’s where it ends. There are simply too many ruffles that cover the chest which make her unnecessary big on the top. The fabric transition between the top and bottom also doesn’t look too well.
There is a very big controversy about Sarah Hyland’s outfit ( Modern Family). Her outfit is talk of the day mainly because the audience is opinionated that her outfit wasn’t Emmy worthy and just didn’t belong there.
That’s where I think people are wrong. Any event, glamorous or non-glamorous isn’t all about wearing dresses as a woman. She felt like nobody ever worn pants on the red carpet at the Emmy’s and she wanted to give it a try.
I have to say that I am totally in love with her outfit as she wears it very well and on trend. The fabric details and the detailing at the waist hugs her features well and makes her body look like an hourglass. Even her shoes look to die for!
Which outfit did you like the most?
We all know Olivia Pallermo for always looking amazing and fashionable. Sometimes on the high end but sometimes she also mixes in affordable pieces that are also available for the public. It’s no secret that Olivia loves herself some Fendi, Dior or some Jimmy Choo, but did you also know she loves Zara?
Recently she has been spotted wearing a gorgeous blue pin striped blouse with floral detailing. And the good news? It’s still available in store and online with it’s affordable price of 39,95. Get yours now before the Fashion world goes crazy on this blouse!

Double article today as due to sickness I didn't provide my saturday post. But as it is weekend and we tend to crave a little bit more, I will share my recipe for the nicest kale chips you have ever tried. Kale chips are perfect for your cravings and in my case my sweet tooth. I have fases in life where I eat everything I want, which is completely normal as everybody is free to indulge sometimes. But I also have fases when I need to stop the junkfood and eat a bit healthier, to keep it healthy I indulge on kale chips or tuna, it simply depends on what is available.
Let's get started:
The ingredients are as following:
- Kale ( Get yourself a big bunch of kale, want to be even healthier? go green and get some Bio kale instead)
- 1/3 teaspoon seasalt
- 1/3 teaspoon Rosemary
- 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Sage
- 1/4 teaspoon black peper
- 1 pinch of paprika powder ( can be more if you like the paprika taste to dominate a bit more)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
How you create it:
Step 1: preheat the oven to 180 C / 350F
Step 2: tear the kale leaves of the stems, make sure you tear the leaves not to small as they will shrink during the process.
Step 3: rinse the leaves with water and pet dry after.
Step 4: sprinkle the olive oil amongst the kale, and add the seasoning after.
Step 5: spread the leaves on a baking tray and put it in your oven.
Step 6: bake for 10 - 15 minutes untill golden brown.
Enjoy your healthy kale chips and let me know if you have tried it or maybe have another variation that I really need to try :)
As I’m writing this article on a sunny Sunday morning, I just wonder what to do today. All I think about lately is having a vacation on a tropical island with lots of fun water activities, because I love hanging out in the water.
My brother recently bought himself a boat and I cannot wait to acompany him on it. While looking around for boat accessories we stumbled upon a website called inflatable-zone which sell awesome inflatable gadgets both in and outside the water. One item that specificly caught my attention was the flying fish. This inflatable gadget makes you fly behind the boat over the water, how amazing is that? You do need to do it in a safe place ofcourse but I am so eager to try something like this. This really got my brother hyped up and wanting to have it right now! Haha we can act like kids sometimes.
Dont feel like flying? They also have cute water rollers, like in the picture below. I wish these gadgets existed earlier because I feel like a kid wanting to try all of these inflatable water gadgets, and so does my brother. And this one is a better option than the flying fish if you are scared of heights. This could be something my mom would enjoy and you don’t need to be in far water for this one, you just need pool or something like it. I could really see myself rolling and playing all day with these gadgets. As summer is not over yet and we still have a few sunny days left it’s time to enjoy and have the greatest summer ever! Or at least the best summer of ’16 , have a nice day!
French fashion house Chanel has launched their Fall / Winter '16 collection, and my oh my do the pieces look gorgeous or what? Ofcourse Karl Lagerfeld has been a great addition to this season's collection. Besides launching their new Amazone inspired collection, which looks absolutely amazing with the light vibrant colors and silky textures, and let us not forget the comfy soft sweaters! Chanel also launched their Fall / Winter accessories, and accessories are always my fave content to look forward to during Fall and Winter because I tend to wear more accessories in this time of the year. Chanel went all out with this year's accessories, let alone for one of the bracelets which they embelished with an emoticon.
For a little sneak peak on the accessory collection you can watch the video below which displays a behind the scenes take on a few of the jewerly/ accessories of upcoming season.

Ever woke up and prayed for a few more minutes of sleep? I sure have. However, today's article will give you some tips and tricks so that you can stay a little bit longer in bed every morning and you make the most use out of all the little minutes you already have. So prepare beforehand with these great tips and stay a little bit longer in bed tomorrow, especially because it will be monday.
1. CHOOSE YOUR OUTFIT
2. HAIR PREPARATION
Want to have curly or sleek straight hair? Make sure you put your hair in 4 buns before going to bed. 2 buns on the top and 2 buns low, you might feel the bunswhen sleeping but you got some amazing curly hair the next morning and you don't have to wake up early for it.
3. ORGANIZING YOUR COSMETICS
By having your make up organized and tidied up in some cute displays it's easier to find your make up products in the morning instead of having to dig everything up from your cosmetics bag. The cute display also makes you use the fullest out of all your cosmetics as you might notice products you haven't been using in a while.
4. BRONZER IS THE KEY!
Don't want to spend a lot of time on your make up? Been there, dont that! Well let me tell you, you dont need a lot of make up to get that fresh looking appearance! Just add some bronzer to the bridge of your nose and on your cheeks and you got that healthy glow.
There is a new hair trend in town and I am loving it! The hair trend I'm talking about is the Cinnamon Swirl trend, this trend is specific for blondes and looks amazing. It almost makes me want to turn blond myself, but I will stay brunette for now, as I kind of like it.
The Cinnamon swirl hairstyle consists out of a non- blended mix of light and dark shades created by a combination of hair painting and foil to create the swirl looking consistancy. The benefit of coloring the hair this way is that the hair doesnt look blended but more dimensional and swirly, like the perfect sunday icecream.
Hi friends, today's outfit post is inspired for those hot days that are packed with meetings. Even though you might want to trade in those heels for some les high heels, this outfit is very comfortable and breezy for the heat.
I decided to pair up this gorgeous lace blouse with some business blue looking navy shorts, the shorts have a ruffle detail going on which is a perfect detail to fit in with the lace from the top. By adding the fresh crisp white color of the blouse with the navy color on the buttom you create an instant business looking outfit which comes of very fresh and vibrant.
The heels make it perfect for meetings that are a little bit more casual like meetings in the fashion industry, however for some stricter meetings you might want to go for some espadrilles or some summer sandals.

Designer collaborations are all over the place as brands love to bring fashion influencers in the game to create new - one of a kind collections. We've seen it a lot lately with Puma and Adidas, and who is Nike for not to jump in on this lovely trend. Not only are the designer products more affordable to buy for the random person, the collections are most of the time limited so you still have a one of a kind piece in your wardrobe.
Nike lab x RT is a collaboration between Nike lab and Ricardo Tisci, also known as Givenchy designer. The collection is inspired by the 'flower power' trend and gives a whole new twist to sportswear in general. Me as a full time gym go'er loves everything from this collaboration and wants to have everything! Especially the cap and joggers.
As the school year has officially started again here in the Netherlands, it reminded me that some of you might be in their senior year and already feel amped up about finishing school and your last prom. Therefore I decided to dedicate a post on homecoming dresses, and also where to get a cheap affordable gown, as some of you don't really have a lot to spend and that's perfectly fine. I myself also did not have a lot of money to spend on my gowns and actually wished there where some cheaper alternatives a few years ago.
As I was looking for some pageant inspiration, I came across the Dressthat website, and found out that they had gowns that are more affordable than the store I usually get my dresses. These gowns are also perfectly fine as pageant gowns, which brought me to this website in the first place. But as I tend to focus on homecoming dresses today, I choose 3 cheap homecoming dresses that are affordable and have different styles as some proms might be a little bit more conservative. I also added the links to the website in case there is interest in buying them.
Dress number one is a gorgeous long ball gown with a black choffon and lace texture. This makes the dress flowy when walking, creating that goddess feeling. I love that this website added pictures of 'real' girls wearing the dress, so there is no photoshopping involved.
You can buy the dress HERE
Dress number 2 is a typical girly girl prom dress but also adds a bit more sexy because of the cold shoulders. What I love about this dress is that the fabric goes around the neck area, making it chique already and a necklace will not be needed, in that way you can wear more jewelry around the wrists.

The last dress is a little bit more sexy, this is for a homecoming where the dress code isn't so restricted. What I love about this dress is that it looks very simple but expensive, and the tray creates an instant romantic feel. This dress lets you go all out concerning jewelry as the dress is strapless, therefore you can add a statement necklace to catch attention, or add a small dainty necklace for that elegant feel.

Hi friends, today’s lifestyle post is all about having fun! As I was watching tv and saw some game shows, I came across bubble football and thought it was so funny. This game is perfect for when you have a long weekend with your friends, especially now it’s still summer!
And I knew I just had to share this one with you because it looks like so much fun and it’s also very simple to do. It just starts with all the players being covered by giant bubblesuit, and playing soccer while you bump into each other.
So I decided to find out where the balls can be purchased, only to find out not a lot of webshops sell these soccer bubble balls. Fortunately I came across the website of buybubblefootbal.com , and they offer free shipping which is a big plus for me, I don’t like to pay for shipping. So I think they are worth mentioning on my blog, I love promoting happy things to do.
The soccer balls come in different colors which looks fun, as it makes the game more happy. And when you choose several colors it’s easier to know which person is on what team. What I like about this game is that anyone can play it, families, friends and maybe even at school as a fun P.E workout in the summer. I would definetly would like to play this game with my friends if we had a nice weekend together!
The first piece I wanted to wear was this nude colored pencil skirt. Pencil skirts easily make an outfit look business appropriate and lady like, and following the Summer - Fall transition, a nude skirt is a great choice. As the weather is quite fluctuate I did not want to go for a long sleeved blouse, therefore I paired it up with this beige sleeveless chiffon blouse. And whenever I get cold, I'll just add a blazer.
Outfit details: // Skirt - New look // Top - ZARA // Bag - Karl Lagerfeld // heels - Ami clubwear // wristwatch - Daniel Wellington //
