Monday March


Two weeks ago I went to Modefabriek Amsterdam with BFF Kelli to check out new brands for her shop. The fair was a bit disappointing, but at least I discovered one new brand I would like to have some clothes from: Monday March. The first collection of this brand new Dutch brand will appear in stores this Spring, and brings feminine and timeless clothes with a cool edge. Catchphrase of the brand is 'Let love, hope, faith and food lead you all the way!'. Couldn't agree more...

I'm a list maker: grocery lists, recipes I want to make, places to visit, things to do... I write them down in notebooks, on post-its, on scraps of paper that then pile up on my desk. Anyway, I found a new address for my places-to-visit-list: Sfäär in Tallinn. The capital of Estland is European Capital of Culture in 2011 and Sfäär is the address to visit if you're there. It's a mix of restaurant and shop with vintage furniture, books, cool clothes and more. Yummy food and fashion, a perfect combination!

Et Dieu créa la femme


She's French, ravissante and if that alone is not enough to envy her... she's also married to a gorgeous man. As muse of Karl Lagerfeld she gets access to fashion shows, parties and lots of Chanel goodies. After last years campaign for the new lip line Rouge Coco, here are the pictures for the launch of Rouge Coco Shine. The glossy shades will be available from March.

Flower power


Desperately waiting for Spring... the first warm days... picnics in the park... strolls along the water...can't help but daydream about the warmer days to come...and imagine what I would wear.

The bangles


I love the stacked charms, bracelets and cuffs as seen on the SS shows. Pile on as many pieces as possible for a statement look. Big and bold or small and delicate, anything goes. I'll be investing in some silver bracelets to complement my Spring outfits.

Blanche neige


Crisp white clothes are a big hit this spring. Not so easy to keep squeaky-clean, but great to show off your tan. If only summer would finally kick in...

Five a day


Eat an apple a day to keep the doctor away and dress in fruity fashion to brighten up Spring.

Every colour of the rainbow is represented in this year's spring collections. Mix-and-match or colour block. No dull black for me the following months, I'm on a strict diet of colours.

Paris please


Feel like going on a trip to my beloved Paris, but for the time being I have to be satisfied dressing the Parisian way.

Coup de foudre


Fell in love with the new Milly-collection. I want just about everything Michelle Smith has designed for SS 2011. The eclectic mix of patterns, the turbans, bohemian prints and oversized sunglasses make my heart go boum boum.

H&M by Kling


H&M has announced a new collaboration: Swedish fashion blogger Elin Kling had the chance to design a capsule collection for the brand. The minimalistic items with bohemian influences are available as of February 3rd. Sadly, only in Sweden. 



Wake up and smell the flowers... they are everywhere in the SS 2011 collections. Feels like spring is just around the corner.

The Big Sleep


Feel like taking a long nap and sleep through winter... This is what the perfect bedroom for my cunning plan would look like.

Think pink


Let's talk colour! 2011 will bring vibrant, energetic colours our way. Colour-of-the-year as voted by Pantone is honeysuckle, a reddish-pink that breathes nostalgia. It's a positive and strong colour that works well for all ages and skintones. The shade showed up in several SS 2011 collections and will no doubt find it's way to the highstreet.
