Designer Handbag Wishlist #3

Hey Guys,

I recently found my love for designer. I always loved designer bags but never really got around saving for them since I'm only 18. But this year I bought my very first designer handbag from Mulberry. I fell in Love, they always say, once you get a designer bag you get addicted. I always thought I would never get addicted but here I am, visiting designer sites every evening and making a million long wishlist. I'll show you the bags that are on the top of my wishlist, and want to add to my collection.

1. First is the Céline Small Trapeze bag, I love all the colours, especially the once with more than one colour in the bag. If I ever have the money I'll definitely buy one with velvet detailing.

2. Second is the Mulberry Lily bag. I love the oatmeal colour, and their new bright green is amazing as well!

3. The classic Chanel 2.55 in caviar leather with gold hardware. Everyone loves this bag, it's almost impossible not too! Sadly it's also one of the more pricey bags. I need to save save save! Or hope I win the lottery

4. This one will probably be my next bag, it's the Alexander Wang rockie bag in black with pale gold hardware, it's a stunning urban style handbag. It's not too big and not too small perfect for everyday. I'm not a fan of huge handbags since I never cary a lot, so this size is perf!

5. Last but not least the oh so famous youtuber bag. The Rebecca Minkoff mini mac clutch is not only cheap, it's made of wonderful leather and is (let's not deny it) gorgeous! I'll probably be buying this bag pretty soon, maybe for my birthday in March.

Life Update #4 End of exams, Blog schedule, Trip to London

Hey Guys,

The exams are finally over, 2014 can officialy start. I'm so happy to have my free time and life back! Let's enjoy life now, I've already went for a drink with a few friends and I'll be going to a Italian restaurant tomorrow with a friend I haven't seen in such a long time. It will be amazing to catch up again. I'll get my results of the exams the 11th of February, so let's all pray for good ones.

Next thing I wanted to talk about is my uploading schedule, I'm planning to post every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. It's possible that I won't have enough time to post 3 times a week when college starts again, but if I change anything in my schedule I'll let you guys know.

So since I've two weeks of vacation I'm planning a trip to London. OMG, I'm soo excited, there definitely will be a haul of this, I'm sure I'll do quite some damage to my credit card! I'm going to London from the 3th till the 6th.  That's from Monday till Thursday, so there is a chance I won't post on Wednesday the 5th since I'm still in London and I won't be bringing my Laptop. I'll try my best to upload on Monday the 3th though.

And last but not least I got gel nails! I've been biting on my nails since the exams started so it was time to do something about it. Aren't they beautiful?

Let's end with a quote, talk to you on Wednesday! If you have any requests please ask

~Always act like you're wearing an invisible crown~

A Secret Vintage Wardrobe

Hey Guys,

A lot of people love vintage stuff, they go to vintage stores to find that 'hidden' gem. But recently I found a much better place to 'shop'. I took a look at my mothers and grandma's closet and found some amazing things! So all of you run to your mom's closet and look deep down in all the drawers because I'm sure you'll find amazing vintage things.

Look what I found:
When I'm wearing the white lace shirt everyone asks me where it's from because they love it! Well, I found it in my mum's closet. As well as these amazing shoes! They're so over the top with the golden brass panter but so classy and stylish at the same time! These two things are probably over 25 years old.
This skirt is a gorgeous real leather/suède burn orange pencil skirt that I found in my mums closet and it fits perfectly! The handbag is probably the oldest since I found it in my grandma's closet.
And last but certainly not least is my mum's Balmain watch. It was a gift from my dad ages ago, but since the watch stopped working she bought herself a new one and told us (me and my sister) we could wear it if we wanted. Of course I want to wear this broken watch, it's Balmain guys! A perfect accessory for every girl.

My Top 10 Favorite Youtubers

Hey Guys,

I've been watching youtube videos ever since I was 13, and I still watch them now I'm 18. I've subscribed to a lot of youtubers and some I'm watching for over 3 years now. I thought it would be a lot of fun to do a top 10 favorite youtubers. So here they are in NO particular order.

1. FleurDeForce
You all got to admit it, she's amazing! I've been watching Fleur's videos for the longest time now and I love them. I love her personality, her vibe, her accent of course and her vlogs are amazing as well! She's a youtuber I think everyone should follow!

2. Ally Valentine
She's a less 'popular' girl on youtube than fleur but certainly as good! Ally loves designer things so a lot of her videos are about designer handbags, shoes or things like that (not all though, she also does makeup videos and ootd etc) and they are absolutely amazing! To be honest if I had to pick one youtuber to look at it would be her! Go to her channel and subscribe because she really deserves a lot more subies.

3. BeautyBaby44
A girl my age with very nice taste of fashion and a slight shopaddiction which means a lot of hauls! Lindsey has just so much lovely videos to watch. She also does vlogs sometimes which are amazing!

4. XameliaX
A funny beauty and fashion lover. I just love her videos because she's so interesting to watch and will never bore you.

5. StrawberryElectric48
Super Funny, I love her vlogs the most but also her beauty and fashion related videos are the best!

6. Meghan Rienks
Another very funny and talented youtuber. She's so beautiful and makes a lot of nice videos.

7. Tanya Burr
She mainly does beauty videos, but I love her fashion videos and vlogs the most! She is such a sweet and beautiful girl and a very talented makeup artist!

8. TalkBeckyTalk
The best friend of Fleur and so nice to watch. She recently decided to do youtube as a job which means a lot of videos! I love her house videos, hauls and tags a lot!

9. Akaydoll
A girl who lives and workes in LA, does almost everyday vlogs and health, fashion and beauty videos.

10. MakeUpByTiffanyD
I love her sense of fashion. She loves to buy designer pieces and talks about clothes in general but also does makeup videos. She films in a beautiful closet and the videos I love the most are the onces she talk about seasonal clothes, which trends she likes, what's on her wishlist etc.

Zara Haul / Sale Picks

Hey Guys,

You all know I love to shop in Zara. Here are some things I picked up over the last two months, some were in sale and some full price.

This jacket was on sale for around €100, it's sooo cosy and warm! I will definitely wear this in London!
The blue top was probably around €30 not sure but I think it's still available in stores. That stunning necklace is a statement piece every girl should have in her wardrobe, I know, it was quite expensive but definitely worth it €39,95. And than the black velvet leggings I got on sale too! They were €16,95! 
Last but not least I found this gorgeous jacket on sale for €59,95. It's certainly not a winter jacket but perfect for spring or autumn. The embellishments are what makes the jacket so unique and girly. The leather sleeves give it a more edgy look.

My biggest dream

Hey Guys,

Today I wanted to talk to you about my biggest dream. It's the dream I had ever since I set foot in London. Around six years ago me and my family decided to take a trip to London. We went with the car and booked a hotel in Greenwich. The first moment I got out of that car has changed my life. It might sound stupid, maybe it was the wind, maybe the vibe or maybe a sign from above but the moment I stepped out of that car I felt different. I felt something, something that I always have when I'm in London. The feeling can be described as 'coming home'. You feel relieved, carefree and happy. At the age of 12/13 I was pretty insecure about myself, didn't like to pay at the pay desk, I would always wonder what people would think of me. But when I was in London I felt so confident. It was the moment I could finally be a 100% myself without worrying about what other people thought of me. When I came back I felt kind of heartbroken, more like an emptyness that never could be filled, only when I was there. That's the moment I realized I belonged there. This feeling has never left my side. I've been visiting London every single year and fallen more and more in Love. Don't get me wrong I'm happy here in Belgium, but it's just not the same.
First I planned to go study there, but than the study fee went up in price and unpayable for me. So I started studying here in Belgium. The courses I'm following only take three years, but it feels like three years is still a long time. I'm in my first year now but I've already started looking at apartments, searching for roommates etc. If someone told me I could move right now and guaranteed a good job and room to stay I would do it. But I also realize getting a college degree is my first step. Sometimes, actually a lot, I feel scared and unknowing. I have so many questions about moving to London that need to be answered, that scares me. But I'm not willing to let my anxiety destroy my dream. I hope within 3 years I'll be blogging from a room in London. And I hope I'll find the courage and support that will bring me there. I'm a family type of girl, I like just sitting in the sofa with my mum dad and sister watching a movie. And I'm sure that will be the hardest thing, leaving my family to go to London, they are the only thing that would keep me from moving there. I'm sure they will support me, but I'm scared I'll be the one that misses them to most. But I'm certain I'll learn to live with that once I'm there. Besides Belgium is only 3 and a half hours away from London.
I hope my dream will come true one day, as long as three years may seem, it will be there in a blink. I hope I don't chicken out at that point. That's why I decided to make this post, if I ever feel scared about moving to London, I'll be able to read this post again, and realize how much this means to me. I'll probably write a letter to myself to encourage my 'older self' to do what I always wanted in life. And I want you to do that too, to follow your dreams, not to be scared of anything but just do what your heart wants. Of course do know that sometimes you have to do other things first, like I'm studying in Belgium for 3 years just to have a nice diploma. I would much rather be in London right now but I know school is important.

I made this post for myself but also for you. You, that needs to follow your dream. Realize there will be tough times, but never give up. Because if you think about it: YOLO, you only live ones, and what's a life without doing what you really want? Doing a job you hate, living somewhere you don't like? Just listen to your heart, it will always lead you the right way.

Mulberry Wishlist #1

Hey Guys,

Ever since I first walked into a Mulberry store, four years ago I've been in Love with this brand. It certainly has to do something with the fact that they're based in London but also their classic, timeless but still gorgeous and fresh designs speak to me. I bought my first bag about 2 weeks ago, which I'm absolutely in love with! It's the small bayswater satchel, here is a post about that bag. But since I bought that bag I got hooked, I always liked the brand but now I'm on the online site every single day. I'm sure you can imagine how my wishlist has been growing and growing.

So here is, my wishlist

1. A bag that I would love to add to my Mulberry collection is the Del Rey bag, it's again a very classic bag. To be honest I don't have a lot of black bags in my collection just because I like brown or camel better, but this bag is gorgeous in black with soft gold brass. £1100.

2. I've been lusting after this wonderful scarf for over a year now! It's such a beautiful and very soft scarf made of cashmere and merino, this is probably going to be my next purchase, not sure haha £195.

3. This is a locked makeup purse that would go perfectly with the bag I already own. It's the same colour and has the same putlock. This makeup purse is perfectly to keep in your bag. £195.

4. Oh dear, this alexa is just dazzling! I'm in love with the gorgeous emerald green colour and the pebbled leather, shrunken calf leather as mulberry itselfs likes to call it. £1200

5. This is another makeup bag, but guys, I couldn't choose, they're both so different buth oooh so beautiful. It's called the make up case in metallic mushroom goat. £210

6. Bam, there you have it, an in your face pink wallet. Isn't she stunning? £295

7. I've fallen in love with these shoes, they're so classy and evening-like. Imagine you wearing them on a gorgeous evening in a beautiful night dress. Wouldn't you feel amazing? £395

Let's say I've a lot of saving to do. I decided I'm going to save up for 2 designer items every year? Of course I'm not going to buy two thousand pounds bags every year. But maybe the scarf and the wallet for 2014 would be perfect!
PS. I don't want to sound like your mother, but I would recommend everyone to still save for their future lives! It's very important to have some money aside to either go to college or start living on your own. So do keep in mind, don't spend every cent you have.

Hope you enjoyed this post, feel free to follow or comment.

Hey Guys,

Since I started fashion college I've learned a lot about designers. The one in the spotlights today is CARVEN. They've classic designs, use a lot of soft colours such as baby pink, sky blue and light beige, especially in the winter collection 2013 (which is on sale right now!). In their summer collection 2014 the overall colours are green, black and orange with a hint of red and purple/pink. They've also used the 'nature' print, where shirts and skirts have a beautiful landscape printed on them, they look more like a painting with water and flowers and everything. I'm sure if you're wearing those clothing items you feel like you're on holidays in your own shirt!

Here are some of my personal favorites of the Spring 2014 collection.

No, this is not a dress, this is a gorgeous cropped top paired with an A-line skirt. I absolutely love these two pieces together. The top looks very sophisticated because of the colar but is still playfull because it's cropped. Paired with this stunning geometrics A-line skirt that has a classic look because of it's shape but is very different because of the colours. The green is a lime mixed with a grass green to get that fresh effect but  is still soft and not too in your face. Since they've also mixed it with black and white the colour is not overwhelming and the outfit still looks very clean and classy. I wish I have the money to buy these items but sadly as a student I can't afford designer clothes.
The crop top is €130, the skirt's pricetag says €290.

This is what I meant with 'landscape' print. A busy blazer but if you pair it with a baby pink, black or white skirt it would look AMAZING! (€590)

This is a beautiful light pink banana sweater, it looks so soft and cosy (€190)
I'm in love with the shape of this skirt and the metallic orange colour! It's soo retro chic looking. (€350)

And here are some items on sale right now!

€230 now €138
€690 now €414
€730 now €438

Check out their online site for more gorgeousness overload!
