BARCELONA VLOG

ENG: Better late than never! Here is my Barcelona vlog with Jennie and Wendy. It’s been long I did the Vlogging thing so I forgot to record a lot. It’s in dutch though,  but you can always check for an impression of how life is with me 😉 You can find my Barcelona posts here, in case you want to see it again!

NL: Beter laat dan nooit denk ik maar! Hier is mijn barcelona vlog met Jennie en Wendy. Het is al een tijd geleden dat ik heb gevlogd, dus ik was heel veel dingen vergeten te filmen. Nu hebben jullie een impressie hoe vakantie (of gewoon chillen) met mij is haha! Je kunt ook hier mijn Barcelona blog artikelen lezen.

ENG: I had a super slow weekend where most of the time I spend it on the couch or bed. It’s like whenever I’m free, there are stones in my body. I just can’t get myself out to do something. Yeah, I think I’m making myself crazy 😝 This week I got a full schedule again, so that might be good that I have some distraction! Xo

 ENG: As you might have seen, lately I’ve been trying to take another direction with my outfit pictures. I want my pictures to look more like a story. I’m so lucky with my friends who also want to experiment with me. That makes it also more fun to create new looks and content for my blog. I’m so excited for the upcoming trips I am going to plan. When everything works out I will tell you more about it!

NL: Zoals je misschien hebt gezien ben ik bezig geweest met een ander soort stijl outfit foto’s. Ik wil met mijn foto’s meer proberen om een verhaal te vertellen. Ik heb echt geluk met vrienden die met mij hierin mee willen experimenteren. Dat maakt het ook veel leuker om nieuwe looks en content voor mijn blog te maken. Ik ben ook echt super excited voor de tripjes die ik ga plannen. Als alles is geregeld zal ik je er meer over vertellen!

Personal: My 2016

2016, 2016, let me start from the begin.

2015 was a crappy year full of personal challenges and heart breaks, so this year had to be a year of avoiding mistakes.

  • First it was time for a little retreat with Jennie to the USA. And oh boy, what a good time we had there at the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and LA. It was a chilled vacation and I’m happy to gain a new friend, one that I was going to spend more time with now and then.
  • I went to great events with my blog. For example I met two girls from the cast of Awkard and Faking It. I’ve became an Nelson Ambassador and went to the big Primark Amsterdam opening.
  • Talking about friends I have lost touch with some, because now I really know done is done. I’ve come to know new people and I treasure all these little moments with them, because maybe at some point I could call them my friends. You are who you are surrounding yourself with, so find good people who lift you up.
  • I started my new job where I have been feeling less stressed. You can say I’m a bit less of a mess 😉 I’m so thankful and greatful for this opportunity and hope to get the most out of this journey. So i’d like to thank my girlboss for believing in me.
  • My blog was hacked for a while which lead to me starting over with a clean slate. The sucky part is that I lost my visitors and all my previous updates. On the other hand it means I can now focus on better content again.
  • I also started good with working out but you know how that ends. Once there are more fun things to do like eating with friends. I will find the motivation to start again..
  • In the summer things got a little rough, ive seen someone passed away right in front of me. Yeah that was some heavy stuff. It reminded me of how life can be so fragile and unexpecting. These kinds of things are just never ending.
  • I went to Barcelona with Jennie and Wendy for a little getaway in the sun. That was really fun ❤
  • The MTV EMA’s were held in Rotterdam and it was obviously that I needed to go. So I went to the fan audition alone to score a red card carpet ticket for the show. It was one of these moments I felt proud I did something for myself without anyone else.

Did I avoid making mistakes? No, not at all, but I have learned from every choice I made.
So here we are today in 2017. This will be the year of just letting things go. I mean, what ever really happen nobody knows. All I know is that I need to find my inner peace and common ground. With the thought of that the best is yet to come, nothing can bring me down! 🙏

Thank you for reading my blog. These were just some of the points I wanted to share. I wish you all a happy and blessed new year filled with laughter and lots of love.

XO
May

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time. Unfortunately I have been sick, had a fever and lay on the couch all sunday. Today I felt better and had a fun dinner with family and friends. Me and the girls decided to wear something red, but I didn’t had anything red in my closet. I bought this skirt at Zara which is probably on sale by now. I don’t know, the past weeks I’ve been feeling a bit off and I hope I will change sometime soon. Maybe I’m just ready for a new adventure again? I have nothing planned, so hey that might be it haha! I wish you all a wonderful week XO

 A few years ago I shot pictures at this exact spot with my brother. Thanks to Facebook memories I got reminded of it and I really wanted to recreate/improve the last pictures I had. It took us a while to get the flash working properly, but it was fun to experiment around. I’m really thankful for a brother like mine who just goes along with my flow. I mean, not everyone would go out in the middle of the night to take pictures with me haha!

New: Ikea Musik Lamp

ENG: Last weekend I while reorganising my closet till late in the night, I noticed that the lighting in my room sucks. Also since it is so cold outside I have been trying to take pictures in my room, so I can still show my looks. That’s when I thought of getting the famous ”make-up” spot lights a lot of girls have from Ikea. I eventually two of the Musik frames where you have to add 5 lightbulbs each frame.  The LED lamps and cords are not included, so make sure you have someone handy around! Unless you can do it yourself, you go girl!

NL: Afgelopen weekend toen ik mijn kledingkast aan het opruimen was tot in de late uurtjes, merkte ik op dat ik echt slechte verlichting heb in mijn kamer. Nu het ook koud is buiten, probeer ik ook wat outfits in mijn kamer te schieten, zodat ik tenminste iets kan laten zien! Toen dacht ik aan de welbekende ”make-up” lampen van Ikea die veel meiden hebben. Uiteindelijk heb ik twee Musik frames gehaald, waar er in elk 5 lampjes in kunnen. Let er wel op dat de lampjes en draden er niet bij zitten. Je moet dit er nog apart bij kopen en zelf in elkaar flansen. Mijn tip; kijk iemand lief aan om het voor je te doen 😉 Tenzij je het zelf kan doen, ga ervoor!

ENG: Since I receive this lilac knitted jumper a few days ago, I’ve been living in it! It has such a good oversized fit and the color is perfect. I must say that this is how my every day outfit usually look in the autumn.  Have a great weekend Xo

NL: Sinds ik deze oversized gebreide lila trui heb ontvangen een paar dagen terug, kan je je misschien wel voorstellen dat ik erin leef. Het heeft zo’n mooie pasvorm en de kleur is ook perfect. Ik moet toegeven dat mijn dagelijkse herfst outfit er wel zo “basic” uit ziet. Ik wens jullie een fijn weekend toe! Xo

First look: Primark Amsterdam Damrak opening

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

ENG: Last week I had the opportunity to take a look at the Spring/Summer 2017 collection from Primark. And oh my, the items are gorgeous! Imagine: pastels, metallics and lots of velvet. Last wednesday I went to the press opening of the Primark Amsterdam Damrak. It has 7 (!) floors with women, men, kids and a home department. Guys, the men department is -1 😉 I usually go to the Primark in Rotterdam (it was the frist one in The Netherlands) and now they have over 10 stores. But I bet this one in Amsterdam is going to be the busiest, crowdest and chaotic one. But like I said, there are 7 floors, so they are most likely prepared for all the madness!

Of course I scored some really nice items, which I will show you very soon! Thank you Primark & Oona xo
