Ode to Gizmo

As a little kid, the movie Gremlins was one of the movies that gave me nightmares till at least 16.  Still I named my pup Gizmo (R.I.P). So, when my brother-in-law got me this shirt, I got super excited. Because I could now wear the image of the creature I named my baby after.

Photo diary: my getaway as a unicorn

Or as a mermaid, whichever mystical creature floats your boat. But I went to Curacao keeping in mind that I was gonna sparkle like a unicorn. And no less. Why? Because for the past few months I had to look as normal as possible (whatever the hell that means) for job interviews. So I had to refrain from bold and long nails, crazy hair colors or outrageous hairstyles. After being turned down so often, because of my vacation plans (which I totally understand), I felt like I needed to turn my shine on again. How? I told my braidstylist that I wanted a hidden rainbow, and my nailtech that I wanted nails to match my rainbow hair.

I was so ready to go to Curacao and have a great time. Why don’t you take a look at what I did and where I went during my first few days on the island.

Shopping list: Open Back Tops

Last Sunday it was an actual SUNday! Giving me a chance to whip out one of my favorite sweaters. Me feeling myself in this weather, took the chance to snap a pic and obviously posted this on IG. After posting this photo I got the question where I got my sweater from. And honestly I got this sweater 2 (or maybe even 3) years ago from Boohoo.com. But me feeling the need to answer this question on a more positive note, I decided to take it upon myself to find out if there are any similar looking sweaters available now. Which inspired me to make this shopping list of open back tops. So thank you, Quain_trelle, for the inspiration! I hope you’ll find any to your liking! Alright then, let’s get on with the list.

I took the jump!

Yessss! I finally have time to write a new post. Sike, not really. I’m on the bus on my way to work, writing and listening to a podcast. But bustrips have become my only breaks. Or at least I try to make them my breaks as these usually get filled with phonecalls.(Hey Noa, hey Grace!) But now, I technically have time, plus a reason to write. Because your girl just started  her own (t-shirt)-line. That’s right. I finally took the jump. Some of you who have been following me on IG and/or on FB were already aware and some of you even ordered already (yay!). I’ve been wanting to start my own line for so long, but fact is…Your girl can’t sew shit. Which is quite a requirement to start up from scratch. Or so I thought. Actually, I thought I lacked a lot to get started. I can’t sew, I don’t have a proper computer to work on, I don’t have a start-up budget. All by all, I solely had been focusing on what I didn’t/don’t have. Until I …

Tropical Vibes

| Entire outfit: H&M | Ahhh, the delight of being back in my tropical surroundings. No more layers on layers. No more chunky wear that hide all the effort I’ve been doing in the gym (read: little to no effort). No coat to hide my outfit I put effort into. The only coat I’m wearing these days is branded El Sol made of Vitamin D. I genuinely can’t properly put in words how amazing I feel, but I could show it through my outfit. Wearing my favorite skirt and my new sneakers I went out on day one and found the opportunity to take some pictures while savoring the tropical vibes.
