Funky hairstyles

Dip dyed hair and ombre hair are the newest trends on hairstyling. Even your partings in a bold color is not just for dare devils.

I prefer ombre hair or just a few plucks of dyed hair in a bold color, which was a trend before this.

Katy Perry

I think this girl pulled it off really great in both her hair and clothes:

Which one do you like most?

This was an outfit I wore to my friend's birthday at a bar, a couple of years ago. I took off the head because I made the impression I was blind. The photo is not very high quality, but the outfit is still cool though, in my opinion of course.

The corset originally had a black ribbon, but I changed it for a light pinkish one, which is soft and fits my skin tone. 

The purse is a DIY. I bought it at a fair and studded it.

This was also the case for the shoe, which wasn't studded yet on the outfit pic. I'm planning on expanding the studs and fix the inside with a layer of fabric so they won't sting my toes anymore. :)
Any tips for studding your shoes while saving the comfiness?

Pin up skirt


I'm a huge fan of Le Happy and how I love this skirt! Maybe not the most practical, since I wouldn't invite my little niece nor my puppy on my lap, but as you can see it should be an easy DIY.

Work it

I used to have sneakers, but they mysteriously disappeared at my friend's place some years ago. I've been telling myself for years to get new ones, but critical as I am I could not find the perfect pair I was aiming for. I wanted Etnies with a certain look, with cute stars and snake skin on them, but they are not for sale anymore.
Now I think I'll go with plain black - or black dirty wash - cause black goes with everything. I have a few pair of All Stars and some ballerina's, but ballerina's are sometimes too cold or too chic and my baseballshoes have had their day...
So I think I'll have to make space for new ones.

What do you think?

Also, they are very comfy to work in. Although I'm not sure Clemens and August will embrace brand new shoes with a recognizable brand on them, but I'll hear about that (workwear and stuff) in an upcoming meeting with my manager and new colleagues! I can't wait to meet them and start my first day. :)

I have never read a Vogue magazine before, but it was just that I noticed Karin Swerink wasn't the head editor of the Dutch Glamour anymore! I didn't like my favorite magazine as much as I used to, and I think it might be because some of the most important editors quit for a bigger cause: Vogue NL!
I was really excited, because I believe in the editors behind this magazine and I always wanted to buy a Vogue, but I never really did until now. So I switched from Glamour to Vogue.
I'm reading a lot lately and this enchanting magazine with alluring photoshoots has also many articles! I'm even thinking about subscribing, but I never have for Glamour either. Maybe some overwhelming welcomegift will do the trick. ;)

My head is always full of things that I want to achieve or that I want to get done in a short period of time. I want to change who I am. I'm being realistic as I can imagine it won't work out the way I expect it to be, but I think it is possible to change yourself, not only your habits but who you are from inside.

I'm acting shy in front of others, and I've been struggling with this all my life, but now I'm starting to get fears again too. I would just really like to change this aspect of my behavior.
I've bought a book about being shy and introversion and I hope this will be something that can help me overcome that.

Another aspect of who I am is that I'm so easily distracted and this bothers me a lot because I am very clumsy and I tend to mess things up really really bad. I'm still looking for something that could help me maintain my focus.

I'm also a very serious person, always thinking and full of doubts and what ifs. I feel like other people want to pull my leg all the time because I react in a way that is somehow sincere. I feel very uncomfortable when people treat me like that, even when they only try to make me feel comfortable and try to make me talk more or something, I'm not sure.

These are, I think, the aspects of my personality that I worry about most. They may be negative, but I think I have to use these aspects in a positive way. I think it might be possible, because this personality is not by definition one big mistake.

I know this blog is very serious and self-centered, I'm sorry if you don't like it, I just want to get things straight in my mind.

I have returned from the bloggingbreak.

Now it is my challenge to not let it fall again or to throw any of my stuff away, which I'm tempted to do because the past sounds awkward and embarassing to me. Such a doubtful way to behave. I'm about to do no more of that.

Nope, cause today is the day that things will be different from now on. My life has been turned upsidedown and went in corkscrew kind of roads. The ride was enough. I'm seeing things clearer now.

I moved in with my boyfriend and I'm only one ride from having all my stuff over. Unluckily my wallet was stolen so I have to get my driving license back first. Although, I will give all my goodies a new home and I have cleaned up some areas already and it somehow clears my head up too.

Meanwhile I'm trying to learn how to walk in ten inch high heels, gathering an outfit for an Easter familydinner this Sunday and preparing for my new study...
