Yellow and red in noisy Rotterdam


So.. once again, it's been a hot minute since my last blog-post! Sadly, last month. there was a death in the family overseas and that meant that my parents and siblings had to drop everything and book tickets to fly to my family.

While that was obviously a sad occasion, it was very nice to be with all my aunts/uncles and cousins and the rest of the extended family. It also didn't hurt that I was in a tropical country with good food instead of the cold rainy Netherlands.

It's no surprise that during these autumn weeks, I look back to my summer days.. like the one when I wore this bright yellow dress !

If you're reading this, you know I love simple colour combinations: black/white, black/red, etc. Yellow with red doesn't seem to happen that often, but I really think it looks sexy!

And I definitely felt like a lot of people were noticing my outfit, so I guess it is quite uncommon!

Have you ever worn an outfit that made you feel super conspicuous?

Alright, I really need to start taking pics and videos of my autumn outfits!

 Hope this week is going super for you!

I apologise for all the noise in the video.. it's Rotterdam on a hot summer's day.. whadya gonna, right?! :-P

Never getting tired of polkadot dresses!!


I wish I could tell you that the weather had improved during these weeks, but no! Still raining non-stop.. which means I'm spending a lot of times indoor: reading, playing the guitar, watching movies and YouTube. Also, I spend a lot of times behind my computer: editing my photos and videos, playing video games, etc.

Usually, that also goes hand in hand with fewer opportunities to dress up and glam up.

Like I wrote last time, I fortunately have plenty of material from all my activities this summer. So, here's another outfit I wore on a Friday: I'd say this dress is perfect for both work and all the cocktails after!

That's why we were in the business district of Rotterdam.. a lot of very well dressed women walk there. I almost felt normal.. if there's such a thing. :-P

I actually don't know how often I have featured these peeptoe pumps with metal stiletto heels from ALDO! For me, they're pretty much the epitome of sexiness and I am still looking for over-the-knee boots with similar style heels!

Not the easiest to walk in, but you know me.. that has never stopped me from trying! :-D

Anyway, time to find my jeans, long coat and boots for my next outfit!

Winter's coming! :-P

 Only two days till Friday.. enjoy the week!

In this YouTube video, it does look like I can't walk in heels with these ones! :-P

Enjoying the summer in a red mini dress (heels optional)


Right, the Dutch weather service basically expects that it's going to rain for two weeks straight.. so that means that summer's gone as far as I'm concerned. I do hope that there will be an October surprise like last year.. but I'm not counting on it.

It will also mean that soon my outfits will be longer skirts/dresses.. tights and boots.

But for now, I still have photos and videos from my summer outings.. and as you know, I like to keep things really simple. So: a red mini dress, a denim jacket for when it gets colder.. that's it!

As we were headed to the beach, I was being practical.. so I brought sneakers.

And in the sand.. well.. I think that should be quite obvious!! :-P

Nothing beats the feeling of bare feet in the sand! :-D

In the end though, whenever it's possible.. I will always go back to heels!

Who else is sad that summer has ended? Or are you glad is autumn is here? I think I should temporarily move to Australia or New Zealand! :-D

 I hope it's sunny wherever you are!

Wearing my heels, even if it's just for a video on the parking lot! :-P

Another day in Rotterdam, another blue dress


During these hot summer months (not talking about today specifically.. because, damn.. it's cold today!), I still love thicker dresses. The temperatures still drop quite quickly during the night.. and me being someone who's actually never warm.. I appreciate the comfort of a denim dress. :-)

This dress is also perfect with some tights and boots.. but that will be a different outfit post for autumn or winter. I'm not quite ready for thinking about that!

You all know that I live in the western part of the Netherland.. so it's no surprise that once again, I found myself in Rotterdam. I love going there for the food, the vibrant city life and its many locations for photo and video shoots!

Another detail.. not insignificant.. there are a lot of good roads and streets which make it a dream to walk there in high heels. Especially the stiletto heels.

I think I can just copy-paste some of the text.. because last time I also wrote that I was just sitting here. :-P

It's the best way to show off some legs and heels! :-D

This is me trying to look all innocent and stuff... is it working?

Any fans of denim dresses out there? I know I am! :-D

 Have a great Monday.. if that's even possible!

I guess I do most of my high heels walking in Rotterdam! :-)

Cherry nice to see you!


Puns, I've got them! :-P

I'm sure that if this cute summer dress had a pattern with berries on it, I would have gone with something like berrylicious! What? Is that not a real word? Ah well!

Anyway, red with a splash of green.. that's what this outfit is all about! The dress has been in my wardrobe for a couple of years, but I tend to only bring it out when the weather is nice. So here's to hoping that September will bring another couple of beautiful warm days!

I was visiting a park in Arnhem with my friend Sara. Obviously, it being so warm, it was quite refreshing to take off the heels and get my feet in the water and mud near this mini waterfall.

Just sitting here. :-P

Every now and then, one has got to take a rest from all the tiring and exhausting modelling! :-D

These days, I'm trying to be more sensible and wear sneakers or flip-flops when I'm just walking around looking for nice spots to take photos and videos. It's not that I can't wear heels for a full day.. but I would like my feet to function when I'm (hopefully) 60 years old!

So, check back in a couple of months if I will be wearing this dress again.. perhaps with another pair of red heels! ;-)

 Hope the summer months were awesome for you!

Again, I didn't have that much footage of me in this dress.. but I hope you like this little video! :-)

Red, white.. and no blue! :P


Wow, what a great few weeks these have been! I'm not exaggerating when I say how much happier I've been with these high temperatures. :-D

I know a lot of people really don't like the heat-wave (so perhaps they're happy with the rain today :-P), but those are the days when I want to get up early and get stuff done!

I'm sure you'll agree that these kind of temperatures ask for cute summer dresses and bare legs! Most of you know that, while I do like tights, stockings and leggings... I prefer to go bare-legged whenever I get the chance!

And while I could've gone for a completely red outfit.. I thought I'd use these off-white platform pumps that I've had for a while now.

What do you think.. are they out of style now? If yes, do you think they will ever come back? I'd hate to have to get rid of these cute heels!

As you can see in the two photos above, I really do love to challenge myself when I'm wearing heels. These balancing acts are something I wouldn't have dared before I started taking dancing lessons!

These pics were taking near the windmill in the always beautiful Schiedam, so of course I had to take pic of me standing on this thing. Do you know what it is?! ;-)

 Happy Thursday!

I didn't have that much footage of me in this dress.. but I managed to scrape something together! :-P

A blue floral dress in Rotterdam


Hi girls and guys! It's been a hot minute since my last blog-post, but this time.. it wasn't laziness or general procrastination. :-P

From the last week of June through the first week of July, I was on a trip to Thailand. And after I came back.. I was practicing for my end-of-year dance performance which was one weekend ago! All great fun, but because of that... my online presence was really low!

Anyway, one week later.. and now we (in the Netherlands) are going through a historic heat-wave.. temperature records were broken today as we have seen temperatures above 40 °C! Which is totally crazy!!

One of the up-sides of this weather though... cute floral summer dresses.. yay!!

There's not much to say about this dress apart from the fact that I think it's super cute.. and perfect for this type of weather. Unless you are at the beach or swimming pool.. then a bikini or bathing suit will suffice!

As always, I wore heels.. I rarely do flip-flops even when it's so hot! These 5 inch black stiletto heels with a peep-toe and ankle strap are perfect!

So, what are you wearing during this European heat-have? And if you are in a cold region.. are you actually wearing something like a sweater dress and boots?! ;-)

 I hope you are not melting during this heat wave!

Walking around in Rotterdam again.. you can clearly hear the ducks and my heels. Perhaps the ducks were admiring my heels! :-P

Black leather with feminine pink


Ah, warm weather in the Netherlands.. it feels so good! Still though, it's never just warm in the Netherlands. Usually, it means 2 or 3 days of warm humid weather followed by showers and thunderstorms. And this week will not be any different! :-P

Anyway, it just means I'm continuously looking at the weather forecast! And then bugging friends to help me with the photo and video shoots. Sounds familiar? ;-)

So with weather like that, a lot of the times I just go for a leather jacket and boots. This way, I'm never too cold!!

I really love combining the super feminine aspects of pink dresses with the edginess of leather! Especially if the leather is black!

This way, we're getting the best of both worlds, right?

I think I've had these boots from Forever 21 for over 5 years now.. and they have never failed me!!

I know red usually doesn't match well with pink.. but these flowers were so pretty!! :-D

 Hope you're having a great week!

In this video, I'm walking in the old harbour area of Rotterdam.. trying to survive the cobblestones in my stiletto heeled boots! :-P

Spring is for colourful dresses!


Yay!! It's the first of June.. and this weekend has already been so nice and warm. And tomorrow (Sunday), the prediction is that it's gonna be above 30!! I truly am so happy! :-D

This means I have been enjoying the sun, good food (already had a BBQ) and new photo and video shoots!

It also takes me back to the previous summer when I got to wear this gorgeous dress full of all the colours of the rainbow! :-P

And of course, I wouldn't be me if I didn't pair them with 5 inch heels. These strappy peep-toe heels are very comfy and I can walk all day in them which I did that day in Schiedam.

What are some of your favourite outfits for super hot summer days when the temperature goes beyond 30 degrees?

And I also wouldn't be me if did not try to do something stupid in heels! ;-)

Of course, I couldn't be doing all of this without the help of my friends!! :-D

 Have a great and sunny weekend!

A little video of me walking along the canal.. the one in Schiedam, not Amsterdam! :-P

Pink is not even my favourite colour


I've never ever flown while all dressed up.. all the hassle going through the checkpoints.. having to take off my heels.. having to explain everything to the security staff.

Anyway, back when the weather was sunny, we were driving past the airport of Rotterdam / The Hague.. and we decided to take the exit and snap a quick pic! It's all about the opportunities, right? ;-)

Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm all about the basic colours such as black, red and blue. And white if I manage to be careful with ice-cream and spaghetti sauce. :-P

So pink is not my favourite colour, but still really do like it. Especially when I want to do the cute look.

The other pics were taken in a park in the Hague dedicated to our first queen of the Netherlands called Emma. Technically, she was a steward because her husband king Willem the 3rd died and her daughter Wilhemina wasn't old enough to become queen.

It's a nice quiet park where people usually have their lunch walk and one can sit down.. giving the feet some rest and enjoy the flowers! :-)

Oh, here's me being very annoying for cars and bicycles standing in the middle of the street.. posing pretending to be a model. ;-)

 Have a great week!

Here's a video of me literally having a walk in the park! :-P

White summer dress and pink stiletto heeled sandals


You all know that I love going out when the weather's nice.. especially if the forecast for the rest of the month is bad. I'm typing this just after the Dutch King's Day weekend.. and it's sooo cold and wet outside. And to think that just one week ago. I was walking around in a thin top and jeans shorts at 11 in the evening.

Like I've said before.. I can't wait for actual summer!! :-D

I really do love white dresses because they make your legs and arms look so tanned. My only challenge is to make sure that at the end of the day.. the dress is not messed up with red spaghetti sauce! And everyone seems to agree that pink and white is a cute combo, so I decided to wear my sexy pink sandals from Lost Ink.

Every now and then, my photographer manages to get a shot with me sticking my tongue out. Usually, I don't include them in blog-posts or on Instagram, but (just like last post) it's good to remind oneself not to take life too seriously.. so here!

These pics were taken in Eindhoven.. and for anyone who's been to that city.. these yellow pins are well-known. Have you been Eindhoven?

It's almost like one of those cheesy tourist photos they make in Pisa with the leaning tower.. but I think I've proven that one can be cheesy anywhere! :-P

Here's proof that I did take some 'normal' pics as well when we were at the High Tech Campus. ;-)

 How was your Easter and/or King's Day weekend?

Another short video.. this time because the sunlight was so bright and harsh, most of the footage was just me as a moving silhouette! :-P

Spring is for yellow dresses and red heels


I sometimes envy those of you who live in Southern Europe or California.. always sunny, always warm! Last weekend we had one beautiful day and now, it's back to cold, clouds and chill.

Anyway, enough moaning. You know what spring-time is good for? Pretty colours!! :-D

Y'all know I love polka-dot dresses and this yellow one with white dots is super pretty!

And I think that with yellow.. the best colour for the shoes is red. Perhaps green as well, but probably simply red. These pumps are my trusty Steve Madden pair that I purchased years ago. Still love them so much!

These photos were taken in Schiedam which is a beautiful little city near Rotterdam. Especially in spring!

So, there you have it.. another outfit that's actually more suited for a tropical island than for the cold Netherlands, but I just can't help myself!

And the above pic is just a friendly reminder (mostly for myself) that we all occasionally need to take life not so seriously.. and just stick your tongue out! :-P

 Hope you're having a great week!!

This video is so pretty with all the yellow and red and green.. I wish we had more footage! :-)

Lotta black with a pinch of white


I wanted to upload this blog-post at the beginning of this week. But then, after last weekend,.. I got a severe cold and spent most of my time sleeping and sweating in bed.

Feeling better now (even though my throat is still very sore), so finishing up this post and the YouTube videos! And start working on my other social media stuff. ;-)

Here's me on a sunny day wearing my favourite colour: black!! But this time, with some white stripes. Short enough to feel sexy and classy enough for a cocktail party.. or at least, that's what I keep telling myself! :-P

And when one is wearing a black dress.. I like to keep it minimalistic, so I chose my shiny black peep-toe heels.

As you can see, my dance lessons really help! I can turn, twist and twirl in high heels without any problem now! :-D

So, what do you think about this dress.. something you'd wear at a party? Or even for work?

Again.. I can't wait until it's really warm because usually I don't get ill when it's warm!

 Have a great weekend!!

I was trying to get 4 outfits on video on the day of this shoot.. and that wasn't very wise because the video material ended up being short! :-P
