Photo blog

First of all I hope you guys had a good Christmas with a lot of love from your friends and family and some pressies too I hope?

Anyway, why I'm blogging today is that I found some pictures I made and thought of sharing it with you. Some landscape photos I made. Just 3 pictures though, still figuring out how to get my files back and get my macbook fixed. So that's why I can't show you more than this.

I also have a few photos of my mum, but not sure if she agrees on posting them on my blog. When she gives me permission for it I'll make blog about it!
So keep tuned

Much love,
xx ♥

You're the key to my heart

"You're the key to my heart"

A quick update for you guys. I just wanted to tell you another thing I love and that's a necklace with a key (see the photo above). I got a lot of jewellery with keys, like earrings, necklaces and bracelets. I will post pictures soon to show you my jewellery box. Got a lot of jewellery. ;)

I was thinking about posting photos of a few things of mine, like jewellery, nail polish and other fun things.

Guess that's kinda my new goal for the new year. So gonna start with that in 2013. My blog will change a lot next year, more photos, more blogs and I'm gonna try to blog everyday or at least 3 or 4 days a week.

So already having a goal for next year. Do you guys have any goals for 2013?

See you soon!
Much love,

Pixie Lott for Rock 'N Rose

Pixie Lott worked together with Rock 'N Rose, she designed 'vintage' jewellery and headbands. I think it's absolutely lovely, specially the cat ears and the midi rings. You should definitely check it out here.

Few pictues of Pixie with the jewellery and headbands.


These three are my favourite photos of the shoot. Also the jewellery of course. I just love them. The only thing is they are a bit pricey.

Behind the scenes video. Very lovely the photoshoot.

I hope I can write another blog soon, my laptop crashed and currenty I'm using my mum's. So I hope I can write soon antoher blog.

Love and take care!

Places I want to visit: Disneyland

When I was younger my mum promised me once to go to Disneyland in Paris. But unfortunately that never happened. So I've decided to go to Disneyland after my graduation.
It's been my dream to go there since I'm a little girl and I adore the Disney characters and stories.

Now I'm even thinking of visiting every Disneyland in the world, I definitely wanna go to the one in California so I can stay there a bit longer and see things of the US. I know big dreams, I always got big dreams, but I girl can dream right. ;)

Have you even been to one of the Disneylands? You liked it? What did you like the most and would you go back?

Topshop favourites

Hi guys!

I know it's been awhile and I'm sorry about that. I transferred to another school and I had some other things going on in my private life why I wasn't able to write a blog.

Anyway, I back and I want to show you something. I found some cute things on TopShop's website. (I quickly made an outfit I could wear tomorrow)

Some other things I found and like:

I love going through the whole Topshop website and look for new things and inspiration. At those moments I wish we had a Topshop here in Holland.But I don't mind going to London to shop there. ;)

What are your favourites these season?

Lana Del Rey for H&M

You've probably seen the ads in the H&M stores and maybe the commercial on TV. As I told you before I'm not really liking this years Autumn/Winter collection, but I do like the things Lana Del Rey is representing for H&M. I like the light pink sweater a lot (see photo above). Here are another 2 I like a lot.

The commercial:

BTW the Photos are made by Inez & Vinoodh. One of the photographers I admire.

Music: Alexa Goddard

I don't know if you heard of her or not but you should definitely check her out: Alexa Goddard. She's a British singer with an incredible voice! I came across her videos last year when I was looking for something. And when I heard her sing my jaw literally dropped and I got goosebumps. Me and getting goosebumps is very rare, I only get this when I really like someone's voice.

Alexa covered several songs, like a few from Justin Bieber and Maroon 5, also she covered Adele, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and more.

You can check out her latest video below:

She's very talented and I know for sure she will be big one day and I'll be there to support her. Please check out her songs and let me know what you think, I'm curious about what you guys think of her. I absolutely adore her.

Here a few more videos:

Wanna know more about Alexa? You can vistit her official website here. More videos you can find here. And of course her Facebook and twitter.

Celeb Style: Emma Watson, simple but classy

One of the reasons I love Emma Watson's style is because she can wear anything she wants. A very simple outfit will look so classy and chic on her. Just look at this:

It's actually quite simple, the shoes and the blazer make the outfits special. And the shoes gosh I love them, the heel is so awesome. And they seem really comfy in walking.

I gotta admit I love the heels. Something I wanna add to my wish list. :)

Back to school

I'm so sorry guys I'm not updating everyday like I used too. I got so little time. School started again this week after I believer 7 or 8 weeks. It was so weird to be at school again after 6 months!

One day a week I go to school which is on Monday and the other days I'm going to my intern ship. Which is a lot of fun.

I promise you I'll update my blog one day a week and that will probably be every Sunday. Or when I find the time after I'm home from my intern ship and after supper.

But till then you'll hear from me on Sunday.

Love and take care!

Autumn/Winter is coming

Summer is almost over, can't believe it went that fast and the weather wasn't that good either. Now that's almost Autumn I'm more thinking about what to wear.
One thing I know for sure I need new things for this winter season. Most of the things I have doesn't fit anymore because I lost bit of weight. I don't mind my cloths being oversized and stuff but I just love to show the little curves I have.

I don't think I will follow the fashion trends that much this year, never actually do that. But this winter I want it to be pretty, colourful, comfy, bit classy and with confident.

I was wandering through H&M's website the other day and one thing I want for this winter is this pants:

This is an example I want to wear this winter. Hopefully I see more things I like soon 'cause this far I haven't except for the pants.

Places I want to visit: Paris

I'm someone who wants to see the world and learn everything about the things I visit. I love to go to museums, art galleries or reading books about the country or city I'm about to visit. Yeah I'm kinda like Hermione Granger, love studying.

Anyway wanna talk about Paris. I love Paris, been there twice with school and I can't wait to explorer the city on my own.  The two times I've been with school was just one day. And in that one day we've seen so much and it was actually to much to take in that I can't really remember it. So I was glad I got the chance of going again with my France class the year after that. We'd seen the same things that year, which was nice 'cause I remembered a few things and I looked differently at it now.

But I can't wait to go back, it's a lovely city and I like being there. I don't have the "home feeling" I have when I'm in London, but when I'm in Paris it feels nice to be there, maybe also in a way of feeling home, but I'm not sure. But I guess I just fall in love with the city, the people and the other things I've seen.

I'm even thinking of getting an internship in Paris, but I got a little problem, my French isn't that good. I know how to say my name, age and ask someone how he's doing and probably a few more words and sentence. Yeah obviously the ones like Bonjour, Au revoir and Bon nuit.

So Paris is definitely a place I want to revisit and I hope I got the time and money for that soon.

Movies: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I can't wait to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's a book that's turned into a movie. I've read the book and I liked it so I can't wait how they turned everything onto the big screen.

Based on the novel written by Stephen Chbosky, this is about 15-year-old Charlie (Logan Lerman), an endearing and naive outsider, coping with first love (Emma Watson), the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs. The introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors, Sam and Patrick, who welcome him to the real world.

Probably the main reason why I can't wait to see it is because of Emma Watson. Me as a little Harry Potter fan is really curious how Emma transforms from playing Hermione Granger to Sam. In the movie she has an American accent and for what I heard I think it's pretty good but I read some reviews that it wasn't. I don't really care if her accent is fluent or not, I mean it's her first time speaking with an American accent in a movie so I can't wait who that turns out.

For those who are interested you can watch the trailer below:

Bye bye Rome, Hello Holland

I would like to share some photos with you of Rome. I'm not gonna tell you what happened or what I did, sorry. I'm just showing you guys what I've seen and what I think of it.

The Coliseum, which is so beautiful and huge! I didn't know what to expect but I didn't expect it to be like this. Coliseum at night is very beautiful they light it up. Sorry for the bad quality of pictures. I took them with my iPod, got them of course also on my camera but I'm not in the mood yet to go through all the pictures and pick out the beautiful once so till the time I'm in the mood for that you need to do it with this. Once I made a selection of the other photos I'll make another blog post about it, don't worry. ;)

We also went to the Vatican, we didn't went inside, someone told me we should have, but the line for the tickets was just massive that we decided not to.

Our hotel was almost outside Rome as you can see on the map above. The blue dot is where we were. To get in the city we had to go by bus for almost an hour and that everyday. But it was worth it. (:  Last picture is the view I had, quite nice actually.

Next some random photos:
(view of Rome, got better ones of this)

(Old Rome, so awesome loved this the most I guess)

(The drawing some made are so beautiful. Just look at the Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow. It's just so real)

Okay I'll will edit the photos I made with my camera this week so probably next week I'll post the edit photos.

I loved Rome and I definitely will visit it again, I've seen so much in 4-5 days, maybe even to much and I probably forgot the half of the things I've seen. So I just need to go back and relive it again.
