Fi fa fashion

Last week I attended the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam. I saw several amazing shows. However, the people attending the events were even more impressive. The one even more fashionable than the other. So you can imagine my surprised look when I got voted “Look of the day” this morning at Amayzine. A Dutch fashion & lifestyle website. I think that, especially compared to the others, my basic tom-boy look isn’t really that impressive. But I find it soooo cool to be spotted anyway. Check out the full article on their website. Oh by the way, fashion guru and best friend Anne-Marleen was spotted the day before.

Who says you need to be 1,85 to become a top model ;) Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 14.44.22Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 14.48.57

Orange fever!

Orange fever!

I tried to deny the fact that I was nervous for the world cup 2014…but I can’t hide it any longer. I caught a full on orange fever. The feeling of revenge was so sweet after beating the Spanish (note: World Cup Champion 2010) I believe we can take on the world. And even if we don’t become world champion…Even if we won’t make it through to the next round I am proud of being Dutch and, although it is not really my colour, wearing orange!

Carry on

Carry on…no not as in “keep calm and carry on” but as in carry-on luggage. Tomorrow I am going to Portugal for a, if I must say so, well-deserved get-away with four of my best girl friends. But we decided to travel with only carry-on luggage. This means one little suitcase for a 5-day holiday. Why….in Gods name…why did we decide this again?!

5 days, 4 category’s of activities; beach/swimming pool, shopping, going out and wining&dining. This actually means I need to bring an entire wardrobe cause you never know what to expect and who you might run into. So right now I am a flipping coin for al pre-selected items to see what will actually carry with me.

But truth is I cannot wait to get away out of the country tomorrow. It is going to be sooo much fun. Just fyi…in another category of carry on I carefully deleted several mobile phone number of boys that I collected over past few weeks in my eternal search for love. It is time for less drama and more girls just want to have fun.

Turn on out office, switch mobile phone into flight mode, keep calm and carry on!
