All greyed out


First post of 2019! How has everyone been doing? My year has started quite relaxed but already is shaping up to be busy so I have to be careful. One of my new year's resolutions is to try and not be consumed by my professional life!

Anyway, it's still winter, so that means boots!! I know I can wear boots in the spring and summer, but that's when I want to wear pumps and sandals.

So boots, tights and a dress it is and this time, the colour is grey.. quite different from black, ain't it? :-P

For this shoot, we went to a small island in the city of Rotterdam called Noordereiland. You can see the Erasmus bridge in the back while I'm standing next to a monument in honour of our former queen Wilhelmina.

Here's a view from the back. Yeah, I know.. I really need to get my hair trimmed and styled at the salon. I should make some time for that.

After all that walking in those heels, even I have to sit down for a quick rest. ;-)

I am originally from the north of the Netherlands, but every time I visit Rotterdam.. I am amazed with all the nice spots and views! ;-)

 All the best for 2019!!

Just walking around in these fabulous boots and even doing a bit of jumping from tile to tile! :-)

Holiday on Lanzarote: high heels on a mountain top


Another fashion post about my holiday on the island of Lanzarote last November!

During one of these days.. after spending most of the day on the beach, we decided to drive up to the top of one of the mountainous hills on the island to see the sunset! Unfortunately, we couldn't drive all the way to the top.. so some hiking was still needed. Oh oh!

Me being me, I didn't choose to do the sensible thing and wear proper hiking clothes. No, I opted for a cute polka-dot dress, bare legs and stiletto heels!! :-P

It is during these times that I'm really thankful for my friends who put up with my shenanigans.. and help me up there and take photos and videos!

Because walking in high heels on rocky terrain.. quite the challenge! ;-)

And I must say.. the view up there was amazing and I am glad that my friends convinced me to walk all the up to the top. Because even in proper shoes and clothing, that would not have been much easier.

I really love my blue sneakers.. and they are the secret how I got up the mountain! :-D

 Almost Xmas.. hope you are enjoying these weeks!!

The sun was setting when we were up there.. so it got cold and windy very fast! :-)
