Impulsive, a tad bit rebellious and open minded

Nesrine and I decided that we wanted to dye our hair just little bit. She wanted to dye her ends blue and I wanted to shave 3,4  cm of the back of my head, bleach that part and then dye it in a color. I bought blue as well. Although I did not shave ( more like cutting it very short) or bleach it yet, sooo stay tuned! But Nesrine did. She didn’t bleach it, but she had lightened her ends into a dark blond, earlier this year. Surprisingly the dye did really take, she slept with the dye and this is how it turned out. She is in all black everything today. Love the look, a little bit dark and goth like but still fabulous. She also answered some questions btw!

She is wearing this beautiful long black dress from (h&m) I think. With a gold belt that accentuate the waist, very lovely (similar here). The jacket, I don’t even know where the jacket is from, such a good jacket (similar here). River island boots. That’s pretty much all I know about the outfit. But if you see something and you are like ‘I need’ I will make sure to find out where she bought it.

When in doubt, wear red.

When I was little, I desperately wanted glasses. Really, I wanted any kind of accessory that would make me stand out and look special, and at the time I romanticized glasses. So I hoped and hoped and hoped for bad eyesight. I basically wished my way to horrible vision because in second grade my parents took me to the optometrist, who in fact informed me that I needed glasses.

Oh, happy day! For approximately two weeks, but I was teased mercilessly. I started hating my glasses, regretting that I ever even wanted them and switched to contacts. If you wear glasses, it's easy to feel like you can hide behind your frames

But I grew to love my glasses again, the outstanding frames are more an accessory to me. I treat shopping for glasses like I would treat shopping for a purse or new shoes. Glasses are awesome. They come in all shapes and colors, and you can mix and match based on your mood or outfit.

And that’s why I fell in love with the online webshop FIRMOO with a wide range of fantastic and very affordable (!) frames, and also a friendly and helpful customer service. It is almost too good to be true.

So after spending a long time on choosing frames I made a decision and placed my order. I have to admit, my expectations were not high… After 1,5 weeks, I received the package. This is pretty fast as the package was sent from China! The quality and fit really surprised me !

Inspired to do new things

I am not really the one that dresses up every single day. It’s just not me, not because I don’t like it, but probably because I am lazy, don’t have the time, don’t want to make the time or simply are not in the mood. But, sometimes when I am off and don’t have anything to do that day, no other engagement. I will spontaneously create a new look, get inspired by a look and try to recreate that look or style in my own way. You see, sometimes I think that my inspiration is interesting and by sharing this with you guys you can maybe get inspired too. Maybe play around and try to do new things.

This music video was my inspiration for trying out this hair style. After that I started to play around with the make-up. I wanted red lips! and basically a lot of contouring and highlighting. I also used fake eyelashes, the individual ones. Only, I am in love with the ones that have three individuals on one lash. Can’t get them anywhere in the Netherlands. At least, I can’t find them. The ones that I have used, I bought them in Istanbul at the Watson store. Kat Graham made a tutorial with her mua using those lashes and I was sold. Anyways this is the original look that I have created spontaneously, and I call it original because when I try to recreate it, it’s just not quite the same ;p

I recreated the look and my friend did take pictures of me but I really, really did not like them. So instead of showing you that, I am going to show you the pictures of his outfit. Casual, black and fun. You have seen Rodney already in one of mine autumn posts so he is no stranger to the blog.

Moments 'Barcelona'

We only went for 4 days to the beautiful city of Barcelona, with only 10 kg of luggage and on a low budget haha. These are the moments that we shared on our little trip and that I also wanted to capture for you guys. So, short story: It was my first time in Barcelona. It was really hot, but I am glad we went even only for a few days. Now I have a idea of the city and the things you can do there. A lot of shopping opportunities which is super fun. Yet we held our grounds because we were on a budget. We did not go to the beach because we did not feel like we were beachbody ready ;p I was really worried that they would take my umbrella away because we were only aloud 10 kg of hand luggage (because we were on a budget haha) and the umbrella did not fit in to my mini luggage. Also, we did not eat any churros or tapas, but we did eat Italian and Chinese. The Chinese restaurant was bad but on our way back to the hotel I found 5 euro’s on the ground. I felt very luck and if I found your 5 euro’s that you have lost, I am sorry I have spend it on food. Last but not least we stayed in this marvelous hotel. The Guitar Grand Passage. Quoting Booking.com : ‘Example is a great choice for travelers interested in architecture, food and shopping.

Yes please.

Last February

Just some memories that we haven’t shared on our blog yet. This was in February when we were in Istanbul on holiday. I didn’t have all the pictures, just the ones that I took on my camera and Iphone. But I really wanted to share this green/ yellow obsession of mine that I had. It all started with this green COS sweater. If you have read my previous post back in autumn y’all would know what I am talking about. These color combinations give me life, I am not even kidding. Looking back at my pictures, I amma be like: Style is my thing. Not always, but sometimes I still got it. The weather was very lovely in February when we visited Istanbul and we would just go out and explore. I love that about city trips, I feel so inspired and I want to dress up. I really need to work on myself, I feel if I would lose some weight and live a more healthier lifestyle, that I would be much more comfortable in my own skin and wear things and styles that I like. I feel limited by my body and it is my own doing. But anyways, I hope you guys like my color combo tho... and I hope that I inspire you guys in some way!

Wearing: Cos sweather (similar here)/ Miu Miu glasses (here)/ Celine trio (similarhere)/ H&M maxi dress (old)/Nike air force 1( not quite but similar)/lips mac heroine. Burcu is wearing a Mango coat military vintage looking (similar)Burcu’s jewelry :Albert cuyp market in Amsterdam.

Hard work pays off (4th semester, AMFI)

Dear readers,
Today I want to share something of Burcu, the other half of this blog and basically of me. This girl works so hard at school. If you didn’t know by now, she studies at the Amsterdam fashion Institute in fashion and design. Moreover, let me tell you this, we have an expression in Dutch ‘ petje af’ which basically means RESPECT! The expectations they have of their students and the amount of work the students have to do is out of this world. So if you are interested in this study, I would do your research first and maybe stalk some students for the ins and outs, like Burcu for example :p. Ok, besides all of that I wanted to share her work with you guys. I mean we haven’t been really active on the blog but that’s not because we lost interest it’s because we were really busy with school.( I graduated ) Furthermore, this is the result of hard work, of her hard work.
