I was one of the lucky ones who was invited to the Glamour ladies night at the Diesel flagship store in Amsterdam. We were treated with Martini cocktails, cotton candy, 30% shopping discount and loads of other food. At the tarot reading and roulette table we were able to test our luck.. And I was very lucky with winning a beautiful pair of Diesel jeans at my choice! I went home with the biggest smile of all. Curious which one I picked? Keep reading my blog! (I was wearing vintage blouse, sweater and skirt, clutch from Primark and loafers from H&M.)
Tuesday. A cold breeze and a trickle sunshine. The perfect day to visit the bed-in press day from Fuse Communication. Sipping coffee and eating chocolate while looking at warm and cozy sweaters, shiny dresses, high heels and hot shorts, they got it all...
Today I received a lovely package from SoPR! What's in it? Those snake printed booties, a matching and usable bag to put them in and a sweet note from Thijs Willekes himself! THANKYOU! I see myself wearing the boots with black jeans and a black fur coat. To be honest, before this package I'd never absorbed Nelly White Label. I's worth taking a look (I'm feeling greedy already).
I'm literally unconditional in love with the new EP by Ben Howard. The other day my friend said: 'it's like a big dark hole which sucks you in the most beautiful music while it leads to goosebumps'. Most perfect description ever, if you ask me. Did you already heard it? Believe me, it will make your weekend even better. (Photos of my new skull bracelet, leather skirt and dip-dyed jeans from Cheap Monday and two of my new ear cuffs.)
It started as something small and it turned out in something unique, very unique. The story I'm talking about begins with a young woman in San Francisco, Marinka Oostveen. It actually started as something creative to kill the time. 'I was working in a store where I made jewelry from old strings and discarded fabrics.' People were amazed by the talent she hold and started to buy her creations. Marinka was amazed and, above all, inspired. Short after that, she went to San Fransisco. The place were her concept and ideas became real. Her own jewelry collection, MOOST Wanted, was a fact! 'For me, it was finding a way to express my creativity. I never thought about the fact it could be like this. Now I'm starting to realize that a dream came true, it is giving me so much energy.' And look at her now... She launched a webshop this week! The first collection 'spicy herbs' is inspired by mother nature. A combination of leather, rope, ribbon and spicy colors. Please note, every single bracelet or necklace is handmade! It was a honor to meet such a driven women and get to know her working space. Surely, this will not be the last time you'll hear about MOOST Wanted. Already feeling buy urge? Check out the website!
'A shining white smile to make you feel loved and self-assured', that's the message a received from Colgate last week. They introduced a new whitening product, Colgate MaxWhite One. My challenge? Making my teeth one shade whiter, in only one week. Did it work? Let's find out!
Honestly, I never believed in those ´this-makes-your-teeth-whiter´-products. But I´m convinced now that it does actually help, even when it´s only a little. At least I feel more confident about my smile. Is that not something we all want? Feel confident and sure about ourselves? Especially on a first meeting, right? When you feel, you radiate. And that´s exactly the feeling Colgate want us to feel.. Recommended! Now it´s your turn to shine, so start brushing (twice a day) and tell me, what are your thoughts? (All photos made by me and a special thank to Colgate for the collaboration.)
