Holidays

(sweater dress: missguided || overknee boots: new look

After two stressful and exhausting semesters, I think I can finally free some time in my schedule for blogging. Now I finally know why everyone was saying that a master program is intensive, with deadlines almost every week, trying to keep up with the readings for every lecture and exams.. I'm glad I'm still alive lol. Luckily, this holiday period is perfect for relaxing and snuggling up on the couch, watching all my favorite tv shows (aka shamelessly watching The Originals for the fourth time). 

Now that Christmas is over, everyone is looking forward to the next big event, which is saying goodbye to 2015 and welcoming 2016. We all know what that means: new year resolutions! I'm personally not a big fan of making resolutions and mine aren't really resolutions. More like things I already planned to do, but it just so happened that I'm starting all of them in january.

Fall in faux

Every year when the summer is coming to an end, there's one thing that I get excited about to wear: faux fur. I like how it feels so warm, soft and cuddly, but at the same time it gives off this chic and glamorous vibe so I don't see how it could ever be a bad thing. In the previous years we mostly saw the faux fur trend in jackets and vests, but lately I've been seeing more faux fur lined heels, phone cases, key chains and much more (not to mention that the combination of soft pink and faux fur is my most favorite thing ever). So why not keep your phone warm during the cooler days too? :)

Brugge photodiary


Last thursday and friday I went along on a little trip to Brugge in Belgium as part of the introduction for my master programme and it was a lot of fun! Of course, I had to take a lot of pictures like I always do. Brugge is a very photogenic and aestheticly pleasing city and at some points I did feel bad about not bringing my DSLR and having to take all photos with my iPhone. I thought it would be better to not bring it since the programme said we would go straight to a club and yes that's not really a convenient place for a DSLR. In the end I decided not to go there, so I could have brought it, but oh well, there's always a next time! 

Also whe making trips like this, I realise how convenient it is to live in a small country. You drive for two or three hours and you're already in a different country which is something we should all appreciate more. This is why I plan to do a lot more of small trips in the next year so yes, you can expect more photodiaries and travel diaries in the future! :)

Pink Wall



It was always a dream of mine to take outfit pictures with a pink wall as background and guess what, it has finally happened! It totally fits my life motto of "Does it come in pink?" because I'm always hunting for some pink. That's when girly me is the happiest :) I still need to hunt down a baby blue wall and a lavender one.

Favorite Instagram Accounts


As a huge Instagram addict I realised that it is necessary for me to make this post. I have a huge love for beautiful and inspiring Instagram feeds and I'm always on the hunt for new ones. Looking at beautiful photos is just really relaxing to me and to be honest, the first thing I do every morning when I wake is scroll through Instagram. It somehow makes the whole getting out of bed proces a little easier to me.
So I picked five of my favorite accounts to show you guys and it was not an easy choice to make. Since I have other favorites too, I might repeat this post somewhere in the future if you guys would like me too. I also tried to stay away from the mainstream ones that everyone is familiar with and put the less known ones in the spotlight, so I hope you'll like them!

A summer day


It seems impossible to deal with this Bosnian heat or maybe it's just my milky white Dutch skin not being used to it? It seems like none of my outfits work for temperatures over 28 degrees. I think it's because most of my outfits feel incomplete or boring without any type of jacket, cardigan or kimono because that's simply my aesthetic. At first I felt like I was putting my outfits together like that to hide my bigger hips, but once I embraced this part of my body, I felt naked without any type of jacket. Does anyone else have this problem? 

I planned to take these photos in a different way but it seemed like the whole city was gathered together in one street and I really hate having random people in the picture. Which means this is the best I got today and I still wanted to share this because it's one of my favorite looks. Also I had to take the pictures with my phone since I had my camera almost stolen once last summer here and I'm not risking that again so be prepared for more iPhone quality photos in the next weeks

coming up


My posts haven't been frequent over the past months and I know that I have tried to pick the blogging back up a lot of times, but the problem was that I just couldn't fit it into my schedule. As you know, blogging takes up a lot of time and preparing posts is only half the work. Anyway, this is pretty much in the past now, since I decided to go back to frequent blogging. Frequent means that I want to start with putting up a post at least once a week like I used to do. I also want to do a little revamping, so if you have any suggestions about posts you'd like to see or anything else, feel free to leave it in the comments :)

*accidently is a bitch*

[photo on the right: part of Monet's painting "The Iris Garden at Giverny"]
I just wanted to introduce you guys to my new favorite piece of clothing which is this beautiful jacket from Forever 21. After the beautygloss party last saturday (which was totally awesome btw) I convinced my sister to pay a quick visit to Forever 21 before we head home and I only wanted to go get some basics like cropped tops and a pair of jeans. Then I layed my eyes on this beauty and I couldn't leave it there because it's exactly what I have been looking for to wear this summer. My summer 2k15 aesthetic will totally be a bodycon dress or a cropped top with high waisted shorts combined with a thin fabric long jacket like this. or maybe even a kimono. But untill the weather gets better, this tropical piece of perfection will serve well like this: brightning up my outfits :)

life in pictures lately


I'm still not sure how any of these pictures show an update on my life because all I do on instagram is post pretty aesthetic photos of things I see, which is probably also why I dont update it every week but rather only once or twice. Does this mean I should have changed my title to something like insta feed update?  I do have respect for people who can find pretty things to take pictures of every day and make it match their feed. What is their secret? And how do you use your instagram?

Rita Ora for Adidas Originals


When the first previews of the Rita Ora for Adidas Originals collection were released, it was love at first sight for me. I pretty much wanted to teleport every single item to my closet, but yeah technology isn't that developed yet. I knew I could not get every item so I have spent about two months deciding on what to get and this is the result! I figured the tiedye items were my absolute favorite after all.

favorite bags x5


Bags play such an important role in our daily life. They are not just used to carry our stuff in, but mostly to complement our outfits. The right bag can turn a basic outfit into something special and this is probably the reason why I love bags so much. 

I have made a selection of the bags that are placed on top of my wishlist, mixing some classics and show stoppers. As I have mentioned before, I do not like basic pieces because life's too short to just stick to basics. Why pick a basic black Givenchy bag when you can go for the gold version? Or Moschino's hot pink motorcycle jacket inspired bag? They are much easier to combine into an outfit than most people think.  (on a side note: nothing describes me better than Moschino's barbie inspired collection. every item is completely me and i want the whole collection) 
Also I used to love the Louis Vuitton monogram speedy bags so much when I was younger, but then every girl on the street came with a version they brought home from an exotic vacation and it made the bag lose its luxurious and classy image to me. Luckily I discovered the Bandouliere model shortly after that and fell in love again. 

So what are your favorite bags?
