How are you all? It feels good to write on my blog again. The last few weeks I just have been so busy with everything related to university and friends, I almost forgot how much fun blogging is! But I am back now with a head full of ideas.
In these busy weeks I also went to some pretty awesome clubs in Amsterdam that I would love to share with you. If you will ever go to Amsterdam, you know where to go! Today I am talking about AIR and Studio80, both at Rembrandt square.
First of all Club AIR, the place where the picture above was taken. AIR is a really nice place with a modern look and feel. The music is mostly house and sounds catchy. Perfect ambiance to dance the night away. I actually went to Cookie club with some friends. We were there pretty early, but I recommend to go there a little bit later in the evening, everyone is a lot more enthusiastic then!
You've got to love Studio80. The interior of this place is really basic.Think about black bare walls, iron stairs and just a little black entrance door. If you are into electro music this place is worth visiting. This is probably my favorite club right now.
Talking about going out, last week I came across this really nice web shop efoxcity.com. If you are looking for a nice party outfit you should definitely check this puppy out. They sell evening dresses and prom dresses under 100 dollars! For the guys out there, they also have some nice clothing for men.
I personally was most excited about the jewelry. You can also get the prettiest jewelry there for a decent price. I am thinking about purchasing necklace 1,2, 3 or 4.
I am not sure which necklace I like the best, what do you think?
I went shopping in Zaandam because there is a Primark over there. Since it went on a working day it was not as crowded as it is on days like Saturday I took my time to take a look everywhere and I picked up some really cute things.
The second I walked in the store I saw this really cute cardigan. It is blue and has some red, green and yellow speckles al over it. Unfortunately this was at the guy part of the store, so I went on shopping downstairs where are the girl stuff is.
There I picked up this really cute white cardigan, a bordeaux pencil skirt, some socks and a hairdonut. But I couldn't forget about the guy cardigan, I just had to have it. I went back upstairs and tried it on. It was pretty big even though it was size small. But that's alright, I thought. They sell oversized cardigans for girls as well. I knew exactly how I would style it, so I end up buying the guy cardigan.
That was not the only thing I bought from the guy collection. I also got this hooded cardigan and some cool bracelets. They have great stuff at the guy department. So I would really recommend to take a look there sometime as well!
I also went to Mango to get this cute little cardholder, because I don't like to always take a bag with me and since my wallet is really big I thought this would be practical for going out and stuff like that!
Project Personal Pie
After four weeks of hard work the website www.personalpie.nl is finally finished. I worked on this project with Abel, Mike and Nathalie. Everyone was so excited and worked really hard to make this site as great as possible. The only thing is that it is in dutch, so it will be kind of hard to understand if you don't speak dutch. But basically personalpie.nl is a website where you easily can create your personal pie. You can combine you favorite flavors, choose the right topside for your pie. This project is for my university so unfortunately, you can not actually order the pie :(. But I think the concept is great! Create your account and get started, and of course, let me know what you think of it!
Lets move on to the actual outfit. I am wearing this really cute top from H&M. It is a little bit shorter and has got this really pretty mint-blue color and has some glitters in it as well. I really like the neckline of this shirt, you can wear it of the shoulder like I did, or not. I just combined this top with my favorite pair of black skinny jeans from ONLY and my black and grey VANS.
For accessories my bracelets are from Las Lunas, my ring is from SIX and my watch is from Steel by Quartz.
Did you notice my nails? They are all pink but there is a little white bunny on my ring finger Thought that was a cute detail. It is actually really easy to do. I will just explain how you do this in a few steps.
01. Start of with clean nails.
02. Paint all of your nails pink.
03. Take a white nail polish and use the brush that comes with the polish to create a circle. This will be the face of the rabbit.
04. Use the same polish to draw two stripes upwards. These will be the ears.
05. Take the same pink polish to draw a tiny little dot. This is the nose.
06. Use that pink polish to draw two thin lines in its ears.
07. Give your rabbit two eyes by placing two dots on its face.
And we are done. So simple is it!
I really hope you liked this post even though it has got such deserve subjects!
Let's talk about hair today! I would really like to share one of my favorite hairstyles with you. The half up half down look. I love this because it looks pretty and it is really easy to do. It also makes you look like you put a lot of effort into your hair, what you totally didn't do!
Half up half down
1. First of all brush out your hair to make sure there are no tangles left.
2. Grab some hair from the crown of your head. Leave the rest of your bangs and the rest of your hair out.
3. Take a comb or teasing comb and back comb the hair you just grabbed. I would recommend doing this in two parts, to get some extra volume.
4. Gently pul your hair to the back, and use a comb to make it look less messy.
5. Twist your hair and you push it up a little bit to create that poof effect.
6. Make a cross of two bobby pins at the point where you twisted you hair, to make sure it stays in place.
5. Start braiding a normal braid from behind your left ear and pin it down on the back of your head where the other two bobby pins.
6. Repeat step five on the other side.
7. Pin your bangs to the side using a bobby pin.
8. To make this look even prettier you could curl the ends of your hair.
Most of these hairstyles work the best when you have long hair. If you have shorter hair this might be a problem, you can not let your hair grow long in a single day. Still no need to worry you can always use the best hair extensions. These extensions are made of real human hair so they will look pretty natural once you use them.
Most extensions are really expensive, but these are pretty affordable and really easy to use, especially the remy clip in hair extentions. You just clip them in near the roots of your hair and your hair will look immediately more voluminous. Extensions with highlights will make your look even more interesting.
If you would like to know more about hair extensions just go to this website, they also have a lot of information about choosing the right colors and stuff like that!
I really hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and hopefully recreate this look sometime!
