Casually ripped


I know that a lot of you tune in to my stuff, because usually.. in my posts, photos and videos.. there's quite the gratuitous show of legs! That's okay.. I might as well use them while I'm not too old, right? ;-)

Anyway, there are moments when it's not the best time to wear a short mini skirt or dress (like shopping, attending/giving lectures, visiting your mother-in-law). For these occasions, they invented jeans!

Okay, I admit.. perhaps you wouldn't wear ripped jeans when visiting your mother-in-law, but I do like the looks of them! Showing a bit of leg.. in a modest way. You know that's what I'm all about, right? ;-)

For these kinds of casual outfits, I also choose to wear slightly lower heels.. maximum of 4 inches or 9-10 centimetres. That will make those long shopping sprees possible!

Friends who have been following my Flickr photo page will notice that I have had this purple t-shirt for ages! I've had it at least since 2010 when I was on trip to Tokyo where I wore it with a white mini-skirt.

So yeah, I do try to keep my outfits on this blog fresh and new, but contrary to popular belief, I do reuse my clothing items. I don't have an infinitely big walk-in closet. :P

Almost at the end of this blog-post, I have definitely concluded once again that sunlight, a blue sky and just a couple of clouds are the best ingredients for a nice photo and video shoot!

This particular video was still shot with my trusty Nikon D7000, so the video quality is high.. but so is the shakiness. I hope you don't get sea-sick! :P

Tartan trouble


Hi! :)

Missed me? If not.. just lie! :-P

As you may or may not have known, I spent most of the month of March in the French and Austrian Alps, sliding down slippery snowy slopes. And it was awesome!

The good news: I didn't break anything and I returned to the Netherlands with my body unscathed apart from some minor bruises and muscle pain. Nothing that won't heal quickly.

The somewhat bad news: because of my frolicking in the snow.. a lot of work had piled up. So as soon as I got home, there was lots of stuff to be done. None of it involving a make-up brush and high heels. :-P

Anyway, I thought I would start my regular programme with some of the pictures and videos I made before I left.

This is me in my "I want it to be summer so badly"-mode... wearing a definitely too-short tartan mini-skirt and my 5 inch stiletto peep-toes by Carlos Santana (yep.. the guitar guy).

Anyway, I hope to post more regularly now that all this first-quarter winter excitement has settled down. Still very busy with work.. gotta pay the bills somehow! :P

I really can't wait until I can take my new video camera outside for a some longer and less boring clips. Meanwhile, have fun with this one-take video of me inside the house again. :)
