• Like a boy

    Do your friends ever make up names for certain pieces of clothing or outfits that you wear? My boyfriend is an expert at finding fitting descriptions for my clothes. This knit sweater for example, is lovingly called the “construction worker sweater”. That’s his way of expressing his displeasure when I’m wearing it. He hates it. Not that I can be bothered. It’s cozy, soft and super comfortable thanks to the Batwing sleeves. When I needed to pick an outfit for our flight to Miami this…

    Vilnius Coffee Bar Crawl

    Vilnius Coffee Bar Crawl

    When my boyfriend first suggested Vilnius as our next destination I was a little unsure. Not only was I completely unfamiliar with the culture and history of the country, I also had no knowledge about the Lithuanian cuisine. I love food (don’t we all?), but from what I remember from my last visit to Eastern Europe the food is well… not my cup of tea. Filled with joy was my heart, when I learned that Vilnius has a lot more to offer than Cepalinai …

    What I wore in Vilnius

    What I wore in Vilnius

    Wise people say there is a first time for everything. I’m not much of a fan of “first times”. I like to stick with what I know, stability, comfort zones, you know. While packing for Vilnius I struggled for the first time to fit all my essentials into my hand luggage and I was lost. Like, I am a good packer. Better yet: I am the QUEEN of packing. I am even better at packing than most boys because I have little stuff and …

    Postcards from Vilnius

    Postcards from Vilnius

    It’s been well over a month since K and I returned from Vilnius and I have no excuses whatsoever for why this post is up so late. The only reason is that the task of going through 300+ photo’s and editing a good few for the blog seemed so daunting on top of everything else I had to get done. Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen that we got the keys to our new home yesterday, so basically the …

    12 reasons to shop at H&M right now

    12 reasons to shop at H&M right now

    01/ Long knitted cardicoat (€39.99) – I have a thing for extra long cardigans this fall and it’s bad. I want one in every typical fall color: Beige, burgundy, olive, grey, cream and everything inbetween! I’m not sure how this warm beige will work out with my skintone, but I’m definitely going to check for this gorgeous tan colored number next time I pass by my local H&M. 02/ Long cotton blouse (€24.99) – I strongly believe that you can never have enough white tops.…

    The Shoe Issue

    The Shoe Issue

    It’s 20:55 PM on Halloween night, I’m home alone and I noticed that the blog post I had scheduled for tonight has somehow disappeared into the darkness of the internet. So here I am – with my steaming cup of hot cocoa and covered in a fleece blanket – to warn you, not for horror clowns and other creatures of the night, but for the dangers of online shoe shopping. When the Over-The-Knee boots trend took off again last year I was kind of undecided…

    Blogging on the bright side

    Blogging on the bright side

    I’ve been working at my new job for a solid five months now and I still haven’t found a blogging schedule that fits my new life as an adult. Add to that the house we bought and all the work that goes into planning the renovations and you get me… forgetting that I even have a blog. I don’t know what just happened, but I completely forgot to plan some much needed blog-time this weekend. Or any me-time at all. I’ve …

    SKM Try-Outfit service

    SKM Try-Outfit service

    When I was younger, shopping was my hobby, my therapy, my life. I was always on the High Street. If you needed me on a Saturday afternoon you could bet you’d find me in the local H&M, thinking up outfits I wasn’t able to afford with my allowance. Searching endlessly through the racks, I knew exactly what stores carried what items and I quickly learned what stores I liked and what places I didn’t have to waste my time in. …

    Meet Cate! The Guess Cate Bag & Duifhuizen.nl Review

    Meet Cate! The Guess Cate Bag & Duifhuizen.nl Review

    My sister is the biggest Guess fan. Looking at her closet, my guess (now this…) is that she has about 50 handbags and I bet 49 of them are from Guess. While my sister is all over Guess, I have to be honest and tell you that I am not the biggest fan. I find that the brand in general doesn’t really match with my personality and other than the odd single piece here and there their collections have never really appealed to me. Things…

    Bootielicious: My new fall booties

    Bootielicious: My new fall booties

    Fall fashion and me is one big love story. Layers, warm colors, thick knitwear, scarfs, flannel shirts, booties… . What’s not to like!? Since I was finishing my degree in uni in the first semester last year, I didn’t have the funds to treat myself to new fall footwear. I wore the two pairs of boots that I had to death and even braved the cold with my airy Nikes sometimes to spare the boots. I took them out of storage last week and …
