Cruising Bali

July 24, 2015

 Location: Bali, Indonesia 

Hey everyone 

Another post here from beautiful Bali Island

 The island of Bali is of course known for it's stunning beaches, but there is also another side of Bali, and that is it's rich culture. One day we decided it was time to go inland and visit Bali's beautiful nature and temples. For a very small price you can hire your own personal driver, who will drive you all day wherever you want to go. The driver will even wait for you while you are exploring. I mean how great is that?  It felt like such pure luxury. Robbie our wonderful driver was just the perfect host, taking us to the most amazing places. We started at the monkey forest and then headed down to the famous Batuan temple and the temple of holy water at Tirta Empul. The Elephant Cave in Ubud, The coffee plantation Satria Angrowisata followed by mountain Butur Volcano and we finished at the Tegalllang rice terraces in Ubud. As you can imagine it was quite the adventurous day with so many things to see and impressions that left my head spinning.  I was coming down with the worst cough, so I wasn't feeling very healthy that day, but all the amazing things that we discovered totally made up for it. We took more then a thousand photos, but of course if I posted all of them you would have to scroll this blog all day long.Which I am sure none of you can find the time for.  Instead I'm leaving you with some memorable moments that I couldn't resist sharing with you. 

Hope you enjoy!

Balinese Dream

Happy Monday

When it comes down to my favorite beach wear, I've always loved pieces that are one of a kind and a bit of an eye catcher. Right here from beautiful Bali, I want to show you a few of my favorites. Like this beach skirt from Hunkemoller from The Sylvie Collection. I instantly fell in love with the black and gold details in the waist and the flowy A-line which is perfect for a cover up when you don't want to stroll around half naked. Bali has been amazing for us and we took these photos at our hotels tropical garden. We have stayed in one of the beach bungalows at the Legian Beach hotel and all I can say is a big wow to this stunning beach resort. Everything is just beyond perfect. the scenery, the wonderful staff and the food is incredible. Legian Beach hotel is located in the heart of Legian, which is a very crowded tourist area, but once inside the resort it feels calm and peaceful. The atmosphere is very cosy and feels like a second home. A huge plus is the fact that it's located right at the ocean.

Right here in Indonesia I feel at home. This is the land of my grandparents. Finally being able to set foot here has been an unforgettable experience. Shooting these photos has been very special to me and all this time I felt like my grandma and granddad were with me. Guiding me in the right direction. I wish they were still here, so I could see their smiles when seeing me do this. Oh how I miss talking to them and I would love to tell them about my adventures here and most of all how much I'm loving it! I could stay here forever.

Hi lovelies

There's a reason why I haven't posted in over four weeks for the first time in three years on this blog! Peace and serenity, and some much needed rest is what I needed after blogging non stop ever since I launched this blog. I hope I haven't dissapointed you all for going MIA for quite some time. But I seriously needed this break. The good news is I'm back and I am here to stay!

  Inspiring you all with the newest fashion trends and outfit choices is what matters the most to me when it comes down to this blog. Being creative in photography is also a huge part.  I love it so much, I seriously can't live without it. As much as I just love posting here and creating fresh content for you guys, sometimes a person needs some serious recharging. Well recharging I did here in beautiful Bali

Traveling to Indonesia, the country where my mom was born, exploring new things did wonders for me. I can't wait to share this adventure with you, so stay tuned for tons of posts coming up in the next few days with lots of new outfit inspiration for you. As I am typing this I am still looking through the thousands and thousands of photos we took on this amazing trip and I promise you they will all be up here very, very soon!

Here just a little sneak peak for you all.

All Red Everything

Location: Amsterdam

Hey everyone

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday so far, As for me, I am counting down the days till we leave for Bali later this week. Six days to go and I can not contain myself, that's how excited I am.  In the meantime I wanted to share an outfit that I wore last week when the weather was extremely warm. Can I get an amen to the fact that summer is finally back?  Sporting a striped "red on red" look that's dressy, yet casual enough to wear for any type of occasion. Think city and beach from day into night. I love wearing an outfit that is appropriate for different occasions. It saves the time changing clothes before dinner, and don't we all love to save as much time as possible with our busy schedules?

I grabbed this classic striped button down dress a year ago in Los Angeles and it's still one of my absolute favorite go-to pieces. I love the front and side pockets and the A line silhouette. It would have been easy to pair this dress with black sandals and to finish it off with a brown or black bag, but I wanted to go for a bolder and modern touch and chose everything in the same shade. As you can see, it can be done without being too overpowering.

What do you guys think?

Hey everyone 

In my opinion one can never go wrong with wearing "everything black". What I do love about an all black look is that adding the right accessories will make it appear interesting and not boring and blah. The key is to keep an eye on details, textures and prints. Today's outfit is all about those details. Mix leather and lace, prints and metallic. You will find yourself creating an outfit that will sparkle, but doesn't contain that much color, which is perfect when you want to keep things classy yet refined.

Oh Deer

May 30, 2015

Hey everyone

Let's start talking about today's outfit. This particular dress by Mr Gugu & Miss Gogo catches attention mainly because of the huge deer head printed on the front and the back, making it an absolute statement piece. Usually I am not for big prints, especially not faces and heads, but when I picked out this piece I thought it was so fun and different, yet still classy!

When I was thinking about where to shoot this today's outfit, my BF slash photographer Emiel came to the rescue with the most perfect location. "Let's shoot on the top of Ijseloord hill. There is a huge black deer statue", he mentioned.  I wondered if the location and the dress wouldn't be too "matchy matchy" but as always Emiel was right.This location is absolutely beautiful and just about what I was looking for to showcase this piece!

What do you guys think?
