Travel to Cologne, Germany + Burg Castle

June 27, 2016
Cologne Germany

The first time I visited Germany I was still a teenager. I traveled to Frankfurt, Germany where I quickly fell in love with the city’s organized look and spotless streets. I had strong hopes of living there someday. Although this didn’t happen, I was more than excited to take a trip with the family to Cologne, Germany. Funny story, right after we decided to take this trip my husband lost his drivers license, so I drove the whole family (sounds…

All White Outfit

June 21, 2016
White on white look

Wearing an all white outfit is one of my favorite combinations for spring and summer. It is classic and simple, and it looks good on anyone. A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Giethoorn, and I wanted to wear clothes that are comfortable and appropriate for the hot weather that day. A white pleated chiffon skirt and a white cami (also seen in “Blue Pelmet Skirt” post last week) were the right choice. The light and slick texture of…

Blue Pelmet Skirt

Blue Pelmet Skirt

One thing that is crucial to me when I’m picking an outfit, is comfort. Because no matter how pretty something is, if it doesn’t feel right it’s not for me. I was a bit hesitant to order this pelmet skirt online because I’ve never bought anything from River Island before. My main concern was the length, I was afraid it might be too short. When I went to their store in the Hague and looked for the skirt, I couldn’t…

Braided Hairstyles

I’ve always loved braids and cute braided hairstyles. There’s something truly feminine, girly and elegant about them and even though I’ve never been quite good at doing braids, I like looking at tutorials and experimenting with my hair. Have you every seen a hair tutorial online that looks amazing but it just doesn’t work for your hair? I think we all have. I will often try to do a hairstyle and ignore the fact that the girl in the tutorial…

The Keukenhof is one of the largest flower gardens in Europe with more…

How to Clip in Hair Extensions

after clip in hair extensions

Many years ago I had glue-in hair extensions, and I loved it. Having long hair completely changed my appearance to a more girly, feminine look (here is an old photo of me with black hair+hair extensions). Glue in hair extensions were great because they stayed in my hair for at least 3-4 months. The downside was having to go to a salon that would put them on for me and then take them out when my hair grew. Even though I loved my…
