I love Lavish Alice so much! Unfortunately, not a single item in my huge wardrobe of their items is a collaboration. I have been loyally buying items from them for over 4 years, and mainly at a discount, on sale or via vinted! I also got this beauty in the sale. Since the weather was going to be nice in Brussels during my layover, I decided to pack it! Never miss a chance to dress nicely, right? :-). By the way, I was finally – for the 6th time in 6 years as a flight attendant – on a layover. So far I have been to Groningen once, Dubai once and Brussels 4 times, including these 3 days.

Two months ago I went to Dubrovnik in Croatia with a friend from work. We both flew standby from Rotterdam to Dubrovnik in the evening. Although we would have less than 48 hours in Croatia, I expected to be able to do everything easily in a small town like this. I was hoping to feel the same vibe as in Split two years ago in this place. I honestly thought Split was one of my best ‘city trips’ in a long time. To tell you in advance – Croatia is now a euro country, so keep in mind that partly because of this and in any case in recent years, prices have risen enormously and it is no longer cheap. We only found out about this during the trip itself, because I thought I could eat, drink and move around just fine with about 40-50 euros per day.. since I am not someone who – apart from a collab – wants/needs a 3 cours dinner every day.
A few weeks ago I went on a trip to Bangkok. I felt strongly that this was going to be an amazing trip. Originally, I would go on a 6-7 day trip with my best friend Roos, who lives in Abu Dhabi – but this felt too short for me. In 3 years time, I have seen Roos in real life for 4 hours – which was in Dubai last April by ‘sort of’ coincidence. From her departure station Abu Dhabi, it is about 6 hours flying time and from Amsterdam 12 hours straight. Because of the longer distance, I wanted to stay for more days than that anyway. Due to the 2 hour delay on my working flight, I would no longer be able to catch the KLM flight in the evening directly to BKK. I decided to fly to Dubai with Emirates. [Read more…]
Hi everyone! As you can see in the photos, the weather in Thailand was not the best – haha. The rain season hasn’t skipped us a day. It was really nice to spend my first 3 days solo in Bangkok, and the rest in different places in Thailand with my best friend. I finally had the opportunity to capture this super cool dress. If the dress looks familiar to you – Jutta Leerdam has this one too. At the end of the year, the dress will certainly be taken to other destinations! Soon I will tell you extensively about my whole Thailand trip. [Read more…]
Marrakech had been on my list for a long time and I really wanted to visit it this year. I often fly there with my airline, but we hardly ever stay anywhere – which counts for almost all destinations we fly to. The stories of passengers and people I know for many years about Marrakech inspired me to go there. Last May, I was spontaneously allowed to go to Marrakech thanks to a friend to ‘support’ her friends who work at Nobu. My good friend Joelle and a friend of hers had arranged this for me, so I would fly in from the Netherlands to meet up with them. Super cool to get this opportunity! During this trip the opening of Nobu Marrakech would take place and a lot of events, so I could be there. I would like to tell you in advance that this travel diary is described less extensively and less in depth than the other posts. [Read more…]
Hi everyone! In between all the travel posts, a new outfit post. This time again in the Netherlands! These photos were taken in Amsterdam, I had my Turkish aunt visiting with her best friend, and they wanted to discover Amsterdam with me. It’s been 4 years since I visited her in Istanbul! So it was nice to see them both again. For those who didn’t know, I am 1/4th Turkish on my father’s side and 3/4th Dutch.
Hi everyone! After many travel posts finally another outfit post at my trusted place in my hometown. Jeremy, my regular photographer and good friend has been busy so I haven’t been able to shoot many outfits unfortunately. This super cool outfit was sponsored by Meahdore. A Dutch brand new webshop with classy clothing. I really liked this set, and I also wanted to have it. I can also combine the pants with many things. In winter, I can wear this set with a turtleneck top and pantyhose, and in summer as in these posts or with a nice blouse for example. [Read more…]
I thought this outfit was perfect for Croatia. I bought this super cute dress in the sale at Lof Boutique. I’m wearing a size S and I’m really sold! This outfit would be even cooler with a nice pair of red heels, but I refuse to do an entire city walk in stiletto heels from now on. That is also why I often go for block heels during my travels. This way you still wear heels, but comfortably and so that you don’t die of pain at the end of the day. [Read more…]
At the beginning of this month, I had my dear cousin’s wedding and his now wife. What a beautiful day! I am so very proud of those two and it was nice to be there with my precious family. Now I have to admit that I have never been to a real wedding in my adult life! My dream is to get married myself one day and I often work as a bridal model, so it is very nice to experience it in real life! Because of the nice reactions to this look, I decided to create an outfit post of this as well! I bought this dress when I was still participating in Miss Netherlands (for Miss World) 2021. I wore it there when I was a judge during the casting while I was still a finalist myself. The dress code was pastel for the wedding, so I pulled this one out again! [Read more…]
