4. Skyline of NY. Unfortunatly it was very cloudy, but the view was still amazing.
5. American lunch and our guide. We walked some walks from 100% New York, you know those books?
6. A huge M&M on Times Square. The was also a M&M store with 3 floors full of M&M. They had literly everything with M&M's on it and M&M in every color.
I love New York. As you might know, I went to New York last week. And it was amazing! I love the yellow cabs, the skyscrapers and especially Soho. I went with my mom, which was really nice. This was the first time I ever been in a plane, so I was very nervous. But when I was up in the air, I wasn't affraid at all. The weather wasn't amazing, it was most of the time very cloudy. But the day we went to Soho, the sun suddenly started to shine. And I love Soho, it's cosier than the rest of New York. And I also saw the houses like they have in Sex and the City, they're so pretty. I also got addicted to Sex and the City. But yeah, I hope I can keep posting because it's been a very long time since my last post. Next week I do have some exams but after that I have a lot of time to blog and make pictures. So yeah, I hope to see you soon (:

Hi! Long time no post.. I'm sorry! I had my exams last week, got some grades back this week. They were okay, but not really good. So yeah, I hope my other are okay too. Í'm looking forward to spring! Not only because of the weather, but also because I'll be preforming a song for a music night of my school (with my almost my whole school as audience aaaaah), my trip to New York (still can't believe it to be honest) and a trip to Barcelone with school. Are you looking forward to something this year?
Lots of love,

Hello (: Here's my outfit from two weeks ago, I totally forgot about it because I've been so busy with studying. It was so cold that day! For these pictures I took of my coat and I was freezing. But right now I should be studying. Tomorrow I have my last exam, I can't wait for it to be over. Unfortunatly all the exams didn't go very well, I feel like I failed them all. I hope I didnt, I will get my grades next week and to be honest, I'm a bit nervous. So now I'm back to studying.
Hope you have a lovely day!



This week Eva, Denise and I went to Utrecht to do some shopping. On coincidence we met another friend of us on the train, she was also going to Utrecht. (That's why you can see her in the film in the train, but not with us in Utrecht.) But we had a lot of fun and I hope you like this little film. The song in it makes me really happy! And I like make short films, I'm working on another one about how to style sheer blouses. But it will probably won't be  finished soon, because I don't really know how I want it to be. But when it's finished I'll show you (: And thank you so much for the reactions on my last post, very sweet! Now I'm going to enjoy my last days of vacation and watch Misfits. That's a British serie and because I've been watching it a lot lately I even started thinking in British English haha. 
Have a nice day!


11 questions..

(gloves from my friend Leonie)
Hello there. I went to Utrecht today, which was lovely. I bought some nice things that I'll show you soon. I filmed in Utrecht, so I'm going to make a little movie from it. And I also got tagged by Sanne. So here are the answers to her questions:
1. Have you ever done something that wasn't you or something you're ashamed of?
Yes. 3 years ago I stopped talking to a friend of mine, we were fighting all the time and I didn't want to be friends with her anymore. But normally I'm a bit nicer.. I learned from it.
2. What is your biggest fear?
Ghosts. While I'm writing this, I already feel scared..
3. If you could change anything about yourself, what would you change?
I would like to have more discipline. Because I'm always late, I loose my focus in no time when I'm studying and I don't do what I'm should do. I'm lazy haha.
4. What is your addiction?
Tumblr, window shopping, Skins, chocolate chip cookies and (fashion) magazines.
5. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I hope I'll be a stylist, living in a cute apartment in Amsterdam, maybe a sweet boyfriend.
6. Why and when did you start blogging?
I started one year ago, 15 januari to be exact (I forgot to celebrate it..) I started it because I was told it would be good for my portfolio and I wanted to find my own style.
7. What is your worst habit?
I'm always cracking my bones and I rub my eyes a lot.
8. If you had one year left to live, what would you do?
I would go to Africa, go out with friends.. I don't know what more I would do actually.
9. What is your biggest wish?
Succeed a study on the Willem de Kooning academy or another art academy. That's a realistic wish, my unrealistic wish would be.. That I had an amazing voice, I would really like that!
10. How do you find your inspiration?
I find my inspiration in other people. On the street, at school or at blogs. My favorites are Song of Style, Sincerely Jules, Stine Mo and Where Did U Get That.
11. Describe yourself in one sentence.
That's a hard one! Eehm. I'm a girl with a passion for styling, who is laughing and talking most of my time and who finds it difficult to make important choices. Well that's not all of me, but it's a start (:
So now I have to pass this tag to someone new, so I'm passing it to you! If you like this please do it, I would love to see your answers (:
With love,


Pretty Red

(H&M jacket and blouse, Bershka skirt, Pieces tights, Invito boots, bracelet from my mom)
Here's my outfit from a couple days ago. I was wearing some skin colored tights underneath my heart-tights because it was really cold. But now it's even colder. And I'm ill, since wednesday. Anyway, I love the color of this skirt. I don't have anything like this in my closet, so I was very happy when I found this skirt (in sale!). Now I'm going to watch the Voice Kids, see if my aunt's niece is in it (:
With love,


A Cold Winterday

Yesterday my friend Eva and I went ice skating. It was a lot of fun and we made this little video. To be honest, I can't ice skate at all. I haven't done it in 2/3 years and I think I forgot how to. Eva was way better than I, haha. Unfortunately both our skates were a bit too small and it was a bit painful, so we haven't ice skated for long. But we enjoyed it, even though it was freezing cold. Is it freezing where you live? And if so, have you been ice skating?


Cosy and Warm

(jumper from thrift store, WE dress worn as skirt, Hema tights, River Island shoes, H&M bag, necklace I won here, beanie made by my aunt)
It's snowing! It's been so cold this week, but today it isn't so cold anymore even though it's snowing. It's a bit weird! Anyway, because of the cold I could wear this jumper. It's really thick and very comfortable. I love these kind of jumpers. I bought it in a thrift store for about 6 euros, nice right? Now I'm just going to enjoy my weekend, I get so tired of school. It's just so boring.. Tonight I hope to go see a show in which a friend of mine is dancing. But my friend who would go with me got sick today, so I don't know if I should still go. But if not, I'm going to watch The Voice Kids. My aunt's niece is in it, she auditioned and her audition is probably going to be shown on the television. But I don't know if she is going to the live shows, because she wasn't aloud to tell. (She had to sign a contract) If you're going to watch The Voice, you might see her. Her name is Lowieke. 
Have a nice weekend!


Year of Luck

(jewelry won on http://lauraliciousss.blogspot.com/ from topvintage.nl)
Yeeah! I think 2012 is my year. Ever since this year started I've been so lucky. First seeing Pixie and Chipmunk, then winning a trip to New York, selected to preform on my school's music night and winning these pretty jewelry! I won these necklaces, rings, soap and lipbalsem at Laura's blog, a really nice blog about make up and stuff. Thank you so much Laura! And about my school's music night, I'm so happy we got selected. I have to wait till April, I'm looking foward to it! Hope I don't get too nervous!
Lots of love,


I Love Sale!

(Bershka boots)
Hi! Today I'm doing nothing at all, just tumblr-ing and watching Skins. Do you know Skins? It's a bit weird, with all the drugs and stuff. But most of the time the caracters are really interesting and I just love the story line. It's nice (: And here are my new boots, I bought them last week in the sale. I thought they weren't high, but they turned out to be 8 cm. I didn't notice that when I fitted them in the store, but they're really comfortable. And by the way, do you know Ed Sheeran? From the song the A-team. Because I'm listening to his album right now and it's so good! It's different than all the song you'll hear on the radio now. The songs are really beautiful, the lycris is great and Ed has just a very pretty voice. I recommend it (:
Lots of love,


Flower Power

My new year resolutions aren't really working out. I wanted to post more often and I'm only posting less than before. But since I discovered tumblr, I've been addicted! It's absolutely useless, but so much fun. I have two tumblr's: Happy Foolish Young and Happy Beats. Do you have tumblr? If so, please tell me what it is. I would love to check yours out!


'Cause Baby You're a Firework!

I just had my audition for the music evening from my school and it went well! The jury was super positive and was impressed by us singing polyphony. They asked us why we hadn't auditioned the previous years, so sweet (: So now I'm really, really happy! And next to telling this, I wanted to share some beautiful songs with you. I've been listening to these a lot and I love them!
Phoenix 1901 D.L.I.D remix : I love Birdy's version of this song. But after listening non-stop to Birdy, I wanted something new. I think this version is really nice, less sad than Birdy's.
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die : The first time I heard this song, I didn't like it. I thought her voice was way too low. But after a while, I think it's actually really fresh and cool that she sing low. The lyrics may not be very positive, but I don't mind. And by the way, if you watch the video and you can't stand blood: don't look after 4.13, you probably won't like it.. Her other single (Video Games) is also very nice, but you might already know that one. It's been on the radio a lot!
Cher Lloyd - With Ur Love ft. Mike Posner : Lovely song, lovely girl and boy and a lovely song. No more to say I think! (Except for the fact that her newest single is nice too! Want U Back!)
Natalia Kills - Kill My Boyfriend : This song is just funny. If I couldn't understand English, I would think this is just a lovely and happy song. But it's not very positive, killing your boyfriend isn't very nice haha. I like Natalia Kills because she a bit different than other singers, a bit weird sometimes but I think that's a good thing. As I told before I'm a fan of Pixie Lott, but I think that's changing. After seeing her in real life, I realized she actually very normal. Her music isn't very innovative. I like her fashion style, but I think I'm done with her songs. Have you seen her new video, Kiss The Stars? What do you think of the video? It's stupid right? Weird dancing, no story and again not innovative. It's a pity ):

Like a G6 vs. Kids : This is a remix of Like a G6 (Far East Movement) and Kids (MGMT). I love it! I think they mix really well. Found this on someone's tumblr site (it started playing when I opened the site) Normally I hate that because I'm always listening to music and then the songs play through each other. But now I was really happy I heard the song, been listening to it so much (:
Ed Sheeran - The A Team : Beautiful. So sad, but so good. By the way, Birdy's version of this is also very beautiful. A bit more sad (as always with Birdy), but very good.
Okay that were my current favorites, I hope you like them. This is a very long post by the way, didn't realize that until now haha. Hope you don't mind (:
Have a nice day!


Denim and Velvet

(H&M blouse and shirt, Monki skirt, Hema tights, Zeeman socks, River Island shoes, necklace and bracelet from my mom)
Again two weeks passing by without any posts ): I promised to myself that I would most more, but unfortunately that isn't really working. But anyway, I have some very special news to tell. As you might now, one week ago I was in France skiing. And the last day my family and I went to a little restaurant and Pixie Lott and Chipmunk were there too! I couldn't believe it! It was so weird to see them in real life, like it was some kind of dream. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me, but I actually didn't even dare to go to them haha. But 2012 got even better for me. Last Monday, I was called by a company for who I did some kind of test for 5 years. And by making this test you could win things like an Ipod and an Ipad, the grand prize was a trip to New York. So when they, I thought; 'Well maybe I win a Ipad! That would be great!' But then she told me what I really won.... THE TRIP TO NEW YORK!!! I was and still am so happy, I just can't believe it! The trip is in may and I can't wait. I've never won something so big, only things like markers or a pan. So 2012 is already a really good year for me (: And this Tuesday, my 4 friends and I are going to audition for the music night of our school. We're singing Firework from Katy Perry in a ballad version. I'm a bit nervous to be honest, I'll tell you how it went when I auditioned!
Lots of love,


A Fresh Start

(Monki cardigan, H&M blouse, River Island trousers and shoes, necklaces from a local store)
Because it's the first day of 2012, I'm making a fresh start. So I changed the lay out of my blog a bit. I'm also thinking about a new header, but I'll do that when I'm back home. Tomorrow I'll be in the mountains, I hope I haven't forgot how to skie. Anyway, I hope you had a great New Years Eve and 2012 will be a good year. 
Lots of love,


I wish you all a wonderful, amazing, great 2012!
Here are some of my outfits from 2011, one from every month. 2011 has been a nice year for me and a lot of things happened. I started my blog, dyed my hair (twice), cut my hair short (also twice, I still regret the second time I want my long hair back), went shopping in thrift and vintage stores, found my perfect studies (lifestyle and design or social work), made new friends, had my exams and got good grades, and a lot more.. For 2012 I just hope to find my own style, begin with my portfolio and of course stay healthy and happy. I hope to stay blogging and I hope you will (still) like it (:
Lots of love!
