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 about whether or not I wanted a pair myself. They are a …

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 been sleeping a little less and worrying a little more …

AD | Testing the SKM “Try-Outfit” Service

When I was younger, shopping was my hobby, my therapy, my life. I was always on the High Street.

Looking back, I barely recognize the teen that I was. At 24 years …

AD | 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 changed a little when last year they brought out a bag called the “…

My New Fall Booties

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 boy, are those boots a mess. While we were still enjoying a …
