CLAES IVERSEN 2015. Yesterday I attended my first fashion show in Amsterdam, an evening show by Claes Iversen to be precisely. I was really excited to see the show, as I have always been fond of his work and never had the opportunity to see a show. It was a wonderful night, mainly because of my fantastic partner-in-crime, Floortje. Talking, watching and breathing fashion, that is what we love to do. With a glass of champagne, of course. 
The collection was wonderful, as you can see for yourself. Lace dresses, organza embellished tops and delicious knits. All the pieces make a perfect fashion statement in their own way. If I could only have it all hanging in my closet.. 
I tried to capture the collection, in the best way possible, so that my dear readers can also enjoy the show. I really hope you like the pictures, and let me know what you think about the collection!
p.s. My arms still hurt. My camera is ridiculously heavy.

Furry Friend


The weekend is almost over, and for me it means that the real craziness begins.

The Busy Girls Guide: To Manicured Hands



Let's face it: We do not have the time to go to our local nail salon every time our nail polish chips or a nail breaks off. These little accidents always happen on the most inconvenient moments. So here it is, my guide to a quick manicure, that you can manage whenever you want.

Cashmere Knits and Fancy Tights


LAYERING. That is basically the best thing that comes with the cold, right? Something about a brand new year, the warmth of cashmere knits, the smell of Chanel no. 5, and a Foster the People album on repeat that provide me a nostalgic feel of motivation. Oh boy, let me tell you, it was time. Time to be positive and exited again. Somewhere between the flu and a couple bad grades I lost it. Besides, I am a loyal victim of the Winter Blues. I just can not deal with short days, barely seeing sun and extremely dry skin. I mean, what is better that laying in a warm bed all day, watching your favorite series and drinking a lot of tea while it is super cold outside? Okay, maybe a lot of things.. But still..

"How do you pay for all that stuff?", one of my friends asked me. I laughed. "Smart shopping", I answered. My big secret is quite simple: "I never pay the full price". As simple as that. 

Are you ready for my best luxury shopping tips and tricks?

Happy New Year

Turtleneck - Essentiel, Shorts - Supertrash, Clutch - Guerlain
I should've written this post yesterday, but to be completely honest, I was so so so tired. I barely slept that night, and not because I partied all night long, but because some people decided to play really loud music from 6 to 8 AM. Apart from that, I had an amazing day (and night) with my dear friend, Floortje. From being pursued by weird tourists that "regretted that they did not invite us for coffee in the tram, and felt that it was faith that they ran into us for the third time" to ordering 6 dishes of fruit with coconut sauce at the sushi restaurant, I couldn't imagine a way to have spent my last day of 2014 better.

Pre-View


LAST DAY OF 2014. It is here. While I am drinking my last cup of coffee at home, I felt the need to write a quick post. 

Within a few hours I will be in Amsterdam, enjoying a day full of girl time, shopping, eating, and of course getting ready for tonight. Hopefully everything will go as planed, especially the Uber service. Otherwise we will not reach our party destination.. 

As for my party outfit, I had a hard time completing it. Thanks to my mom I figured out everything just yesterday, and I can not wait to show you the result. For now I have a few detail shots, to keep it a bit secret, or because I had a peel-mask on and my face looks like I went on vacation to Mexico and forgot to use sunscreen. 

I just want to thank all my readers. Precisely a year ago I decided to start this blog. It means a lot that you guys seem to like my attempt to blog. I wish you all a wonderful 2015, may all your wishes and desires come true. 

Thank you so much.
