A little while ago, I received an e-mail from poster-webshop Desenio, asking whether I would like to pick out some posters and/or frames. Of course! I actually had been planning to give our walls a decoration update for a while. So, this was very welcome! Because I live together with my boyfriend, we picked out the posters together. I thought it would be fun to go for two picture ledges, behind our dining room table, and hang the second one a bit higher than the first one. Also, I immediately fell in love with the botanical poster. Colorful, but at the same time also sort of minimalistic. We hang this one up above a drawer, which my boyfriend’s mom painted in a subtle green-ish color with a mist of red. And this is definitely a perfect match with the poster and the copper frame. My boyfriend and I both really like copper in our interior, so we immediately knew we were going for the copper frames.

In today’s video, I’m showing you what I ate last Tuesday! A while back, I uploaded a photo food diary every week, when I was doing the vegan challenge. Some of you asked whether I could keep doing food diaries every once and a while. So, I thought it would be fun to do one in video form this time! I hope you like it! What do you like to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner? :-)

Last Friday, I went to The Hague to meet up with Simone. The sun was out, so we took the opportunity to shoot against the light. I really love that effect in photos! Off shoulder tops and chokers are both on trend at the moment, and personally, I think they look really great worn together. I got this pearl and lace choker as a gift from my dad about two years ago. So, he should’ve seen this trend coming, haha! I really like it with the lace and the pearls. It’s different than most chokers! And I especially like it with this off shoulder top. Also, I went for a print mix again. This time, I was actually even wearing three prints; stripes, dots and flowers! What do you think? :-)

The bandana is a big trend this spring and summer! I’ve spotted them a lot on Instagram, lately. Personally, I really like this trend. It gives your outfit just that little bit extra. In this week’s video, I’m showing you different ways to wear a bandana, and how to fold it. I’m showing a few ways for in your hair, but also a few ways other than in our hair. What do you think of this trend? Do you own one? And how do you like to wear it? I’d love to hear!
P.S. The video is in Dutch, but you can still watch it to see the ideas. They kind of speak for themself! If you want to skip the Dutch intro, you can go to 1:25 for how to fold the bandana, to 2:27 for the non-hair ideas, or 4:38 for the hair ideas. I hope you like it!

Last Saturday, me and my boyfriend went to Surfana festival, at the beach. My boyfriend’s brother is part of the organization of this festival, so we dropped by to have a little look. The weather wasn’t super sunny, but it was so much better than the forecasts. It was a bit cloudy, but warm, and we even sometimes had a little bit of sun! The vibe was really great and relaxed, and I remembered from last year that the decoration was really fun. So, I took my camera with me to take some outfit photos and shoot some pictures of the festival itself. We found this super cute trailer, and used this as our background. I really love how the photos turned out! They really have this fun beach vibe about them, I think! Also, I’m not wearing red lipstick in these photos. And that’s basically because I don’t really wear lipstick on the beach. And I wasn’t going to put it on just for the photos, haha!
I was wearing flip flops from Amazonas, which I’m really excited about. Because they are made of 100% recycled materials, and they are biodegradable! How awesome, right?! I care a lot about the environment, and I’m a big fan of recycling and producing as little trash as possible. So, when I found out about these flip flops, I was super excited! All flip flops and sandals by Amazonas are biodegradable and made of recycled materials by the way, so it’s not just the ones I’m wearing in this post. So, it’s a really fun, green eco fashion brand! :D I chose these grey flip flops with shimmering stones on it, and I wore a necklace around my ankle which I bought at a thriftshop a few years ago. The shimmers and the necklace really give this outfit a boho feel I think! And I really love that in summer, and especially on the beach! So, what do you think of this outfit, my new flip flops, and these photos? :D I can’t wait to hear!
