Greetings from Curaçao!

By the time you read this I'll be in the (hopefully) sunny Curaçao! I left yesterday and I am going on a nine day trip with my sister. I have been really looking forward to this and I am very excited to see all the cute colorful houses and white sandy beaches.

Inspirational Tuesday

When I visited New York last year, I fell in love with the city. I just felt right at home and could see myself living there in the near future. So when I saw Diane von Furstenberg's house, I just knew that New York (and obviously her apartment) is the place to be!
Her appartment is one of the most inspiring houses that I've ever seen. Besides the location (Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, next to the High line park) and the incredible architecture of the building, I just love her personal style. Her home feels like, well, a home. It has colors, soft textures, strange objects and a very present female touch.

To see more of her fabulous house, visit Architectural Digest

Market Love

I recently went to a famous market in Amsterdam (Albert Cuyp) for some fabric for a school project. And I realized once again how much I love to stroll on markets! It's just impossible for me to go to a market, buy what I need and leave. I just have to see everything and want to have it all! 
I also get great project ideas as soon as I enter a market area, so I guess I should got there as often as I can ;)


Pretty Past

My parents recently digitized all of there old photographs and I was really amazed at how beautiful all the images are! I couldn't really remember most of the pictures, and a lot of them are from before I was born, so I just browsed trough the hundreds of old memories. I was really fascinated by the photography and thought it is really strange that I have been trying to get a similar 'vintage' look on some of my blogposts. But nowadays it's photoshop that creates a filter for your pictures and all of these images are the 'real deal'.
I find them very inspiring and am very excited to share a few of my favorites with you! Don't forget to look at the very cute fashion choices ;)

Hair Bow DIY

Do I have a fun and girly hair tutorial for you! 
I've seen a few hair bow tutorials online, but they just didn't seem to work for me. My hair is pretty thin and the tutorials that I tried created this tini tiny bow on my head...
So I created a new version that's suitable for all hair types!

Here's how:

1. Brush your pretty locks.
2. Make half a pony tail by using a small hair tie.
3. take your pony tail halfway trough the hair tie, to create a 'loop'
4. Split the loop in half.
5. Grab the leftover piece of hair, and fold it over the middle.
6. Secure with a bobby pin.
7. Make sure that you can't see the bobby pin.
8. Take one of the 'loops' and spread it over the side of your head. Slide a bobby pin through the middle of the loop. Repeat this on the other side.

All done!



Trend love: Tiny Houses

I just love the trend that uses tiny houses, It seems that you can take the pretty shapes and use it for anything! I already used it for my Bleach Drawing Dress, but the above images are already making me want to use the shapes more!

I recently stumbled upon the video Solipsist, made by Andrew Thomas Huang. Solipsist is an amazing video full of beautiful and unusual surroundings. 

I don't want to say to much about it, because it's just one of those things that you'll have to experience yourself.

DIY | Boots Restyle

After I upcycled my dress shoes, I decided to restyle a pair of boots that I recently bought at the local thrift store. 
The boots where still in pretty good shape, but the noses where a bit worn out. I choose a pretty floral fabric and started project boot restyle!

Here's how:

Take some old boots

1. Place a sheer plastic bag over your shoe and trace the part where you want the fabric the be.
2. Cut the the shapes out of the plastic bag.
3. Place the plastic shapes on the fabric and cut the shapes out of the fabric.
4. Apply mod podge on the part of the shoe where you want the fabric to be.
5. Place the fabric on the shoe.
6. Let it dry.
7. Cut any excessive fabric of.
8. Apply another layer of mod podge over the fabric and let dry.

All done!
