Hi everyone! Last week I had 3 wonderful days in Ibiza. As usual it was not a trip for work, but just a mini vacation trip. In a few days I will finally be in Mexico! This time I have booked an actual ticket instead of a standby ticket. I don’t want to risk not getting on the flight again. This lovely dress is from Zara and funnily enough I spotted it 3x with other women in Ibiza when I was wearing it myself! Super nice in combination with my Gucci marmont super mini bag and low translucent block heels. This series of photos reminds me a bit of my outfit in Split. The best tip I can give you on a summer vacation is to take lots of pictures in the shade! That’s where the light is often the best for an outfit shoot like this one. The photos were taken in the old town, I will soon tell you about my tips and experiences of Ibiza in a new travel diary. [Read more…]
I bought this blazer last year. I love beautiful blazers, and this is my favorite. The nice neon color makes me very happy and I wear this outfit regularly. Instead of heels under this outfit, I often wear a nice white sneaker with it. This is definitely one of my favorite outfits and although I don’t really like jeans at all, this is the only pair that has been in my closet for years and that I really like.
For the collaboration with NA-KD this month I chose this cool suit. It’s something completely different from what you normally see me wearing, but it’s also nice to do something completely different every now and then. I think the color is super cool and I have combined the suit in such a way that it still remains feminine. Add a cute bag, high heels and fancy sunglasses and the look is immediately different. This suit is from the Romee Strijd x NA-KD collection. Soon my discount code will be on instagram again! [Read more…]
Hi everyone! Last autumn I went to Alicante with a friend who was temporarily working at my airline. Due to all of my busy schedules, all my travel diaries had been ‘on hold’ for a few months. In this blog I will explain to you in short with a lot of photos what we did in Alicante in 3 days. In bold you will find some tips and an explanation of our experiences. I have to tell you honestly that I like to do active things, but because it was very last minute, and we had very busy schedules, we both felt the need to take it easy during this last minute trip.

Diva catwalk is a brand I have been working with since last year. This month I was allowed to choose 3 luxurious dresses of my choice, including this one. I love this color for spring, and this model in red was the first dress I had from Diva Catwalk. The dresses perfectly accentuate the female figure without ‘showing too much’ and are suitable for a lot of occasions. A job interview, lunch, everyday life or special occasion – you can wear it for any event. The dresses are of a very good quality and handmade in England. I think I currently own more than 10 dresses in various colors that I will be happy with for years to come because of the timeless designs. The color of this dress is called Violet Tulip and the model is the medium size Lydia 3/4 [Read more…]
Hi everyone! Lately I have very little time to make travel posts. Creating one takes a lot of time, but I love doing this. This is the travel diary about my road trip from Faro, Sevilla, Tarifa, Marbella and Malaga in 5 days. In February I was due to go to Mexico during my annual unpaid leave as a new distant solo trip. Joelle, a good friend of mine, wanted to travel with me last minute for a few days, before continuing the journey solo. To briefly summarize how that ended: The flight was full and Joelle and I were left behind (we were going to fly standby; a cheap way of flying for people in aviation if there is room on board). My heart was disappointed that we were left behind. We gave our cheesecake to the sweet senior purser I happened to know so that the crew could enjoy a snack on their long flight to Cancun. Unfortunately, we decided to pick up our suitcase and come up with a new plan on the spot. Once at plaza we canceled everything we had booked (and luckily got the money back from the hotels). We decided to do some brainstorming over a cup of coffee and then abruptly decided to fly to Joelle’s best friend later that afternoon. [Read more…]
Hi everyone! It was time for another nice portfolio post. I am now already at 2 agencies and I am going to register with the Chamber of Commerce to be able to do more as a freelancer. It has been a bit quieter in terms of shoots lately because winter is the most quiet period in terms of shoots. The bridal season will start again in spring, so I have quite a few things planned for March and April as well. The upcoming shoots are not collaborations / portfolio shoots, but assignments again. Hopefully it will all continue! [Read more…]
Hi everyone! This outfit is something different than nice colored dresses. I really like this look for the colder days. It’s beautiful and warm. Nice black gloves would also have made it very nice. I have chosen these pants, jacket and sweater from a number of NA-KD collaborations lately. I’ve been running this monthly collaboration since last fall, and I’m very happy with it. [Read more…]
Hi everyone, this cute dress is from my most recent series of collaborations with NA-KD fashion.
This dress has a beautiful crossed back on the back which unfortunately I didn’t get a good picture of. It was also quite late, which made the photos a bit less sharp because I had to expose them. For example, I would really like this nice outfit for a trip to Dubai. By the way, I wear the dress in size S.
