Fotografie Workshop Voor Fashion Bloggers!

Hello lovely readers, it’s been a while but finally I think I can find the time to blog and just to talk to you guys. But I have something that you might really like specially if you are a Dutch blogger or living in the Netherlands. I have been working with a photographer for a while now for school and my internship and since she is a skilled artist in photography and teaches photography in her courses I thought why not develop a workshop for fashion/ lifestyle bloggers…

I remember when we just started blogging we always wondered what kind of camera and lenses other bloggers used and how did they edit the pictures to create a mood or tell a story. We had a lot of questions but paying for a very expensive course was not worth our money or time. We did a lot figuring out ourselves when it came down to working with a Canon camera. Most of the time we didn’t really know what we were doing usually just using the automatic stand on our camera. Yet you can do so much more and since I was working for Esther Quelle, the photographer, I have learned so much more. For example about daylight and artificial light and how I can use it to my advantage.

We as bloggers rely on good images and photo’s to tell our story and to catch our readers and visitors eyes, we need to be skilled in the art of photography, it’s a must. I know that a lot of you who are starting out want to have professional photos on your blog this way not only readers and visitors will take you serious but other companies and businesses will take you serious as well. And they would more likely want to work with you. It takes more than being creative to present yourself in a appealing way for other business, yet being creative is a good start!

Twenty shades of Konstantina

I first ever heard of Konstantina Tzagaraki on lookbook. This very beautiful tall girl with dark hair has an amazing sense of style and a mesmerizing face. You can find her on lookbook and Instagram, she is most active there. This goddess from Greece brings it! She brings inspiration to the table, she brings style, creativity, feminism and fashion. I would consider her someone who dares to be different than the rest, she standout from the crowd. And more importantly, the reason why I am sharing twenty different shades of Konstantina is because she also stands out from other fashion bloggers in my opinion. If you have followed the blogger community from the beginning you would probably agree with me that most popular fashion/ style bloggers are now more focused on designer brands, making a name, establishing a business, its less about the style ( which what most of them began with) and more about business. That is totally fine but it takes away my interest…

Picture Time!

I suppose you can relate and understand me more through pictures and images. Some are on my Instagram and some are not ;P  I find a lot images funny, inspiring. Or just some quotes that I can relate to. Usually I just save those images on to my phone and I don’t post them on my instagram or facebook. But I decided to give some inside and share some words. Tell me what you think? @lostinthegardn

I hope you all lovely people had a charming Christmas this year with lots of presents and food.
I had a lot of fun with this eye fish lens for your phone. I bought it at Hema and I also bought it for my friends and everybody loved it.. you should defiantly check it out! 

Rodney and I decided to take a trip to a designer outlet in Roermond. He wanted to buy a designer bag for his moms birthday and was eyeing a Prada cardholder. The whole getting to Roermond was just one thing, I won’t go into details but we missed two trains because of moi. But we ended up having a blast with the fashion guru, so all was well.

My Fashion Guru

Hello my dearest readers I hope you are all doing well, may it be with your personal life, school or work remember to keep your head up and your heart strong. Today I have inspiring green colors for autumn. First I fell in love with this very warm and cozy COS sweater and later on I bought this Celine trio bag in a green color that I don’t know how to pronounce or spell. Anyways, I was inspired by this green knitted sweater so I started to look for other green items and somehow it all came together. It is not all one color green and that is what I like the most, it kind of represents all green colors of autumn with a pop of my MAC heroine lipstick color( if you were wondering). As always I want to inspire you guys.. as many of you inspire me. I went with these green colors but you can take another color that you like, like burgundy for example, I adore burgundy for autumn… but yeah be inspired!

Sophia Webster mules

I have fallen in love with a Miu Miu sunglass, it was totally made for me to wear. But since Miu Miu does not understand the struggle of being a student, I have to do it with what I have. As you can see here I am wearing my monkey glasses that I forgot all about. They look banging, also kinda look like the Miu Miu’s that I want… I was thinking about giving myself a very early Christmas present but then I have  all of these bills bills bills to pay, so yeah, never mind. But girl, are you seeing the Sophia Webster mules that I am rocking over here.. let me tell you one thing that was the greatest bargain ever!
