Nepalese inspiration!

This beautiful children's handmade dress from Nepal was a gift by my uncle about 15 year ago .
It is a fabulous color and pattern inspiration and makes me smile every-time I look at it.

My "new" camel coat!

About 3 weeks ago I found my Camel Coat (remember this post?).
It is a mens coat, way to big, second hand/vintage and paid €5,- for it. I love this oversized look, rolled up the sleeves and yes it was mine.
And then this morning I was checking out and saw that Max Mara (the queen of Camels) has this look in their AW 13/14 collection. 
Tres cool right?

Vintage camel, zara turtle-neck, Denham jeans, Ganni booties, Mulberry Bayswater bag and Karen Walker sunnies.

Have a great weekend!

As you may know, the bags and blue circles under my eyes are not the best feature in my face.
So because of that fact I am obsessed with concealer.

And off course my favorite brand in the world just launched the best product in the world (that is my opinion).
The Phyto Cernes Éclat, in three colors ( I am a number 1), is a new skincare treatment specially designed for the eye contour area, with a complete and visible dual action against dark circles and puffiness.
And you know what  IT WORKS!!!!!!!

Thank you Sisley for giving me 4 extra hours of sleep every morning :-)

Hans Ubbink

Two big loves combined in one inspiration note book.
How I love the way how Dutch fashion designer Hans Ubbink promotes his new campagne "EPISODES"
All in vision of the English dancer & choreographer Peter Leung (Het Nationale Ballet)

"Human experiences and interaction create ideas to wich we form an emotional response. One that inspires movement of the body and mind. We use the body being motivated to move by 'thought', the way we are in our everyday lives.

Have an inspired day today!

I can not describe how happy I was when Glenda said yes to my "Closet question" last year. 
Finally after 5 or 6 months our schedules matched and so I drove up to her lovely home (1 hour from Amsterdam) last week. 
Six years ago when I just started doing make-up she was one of the first stylist in magazine land that booked me 
and challenged me to work with colors for our editorials. 
Every-time I saw here I was "Wow'd" by her outfits. Always color and prints and clashing them like I would never dare, 
but she pulls it off (even if she is a member of the 50's club (her words:-))
She is a Japan freak and went there lots of times to get inspired for styling jobs and her own style. 
Collects fabulous designer handkerchiefs (look at the openings picture were she stands in front of her collection), scarfs, socks and fabulous bracelets. 
Her closet is one to die for!!!!   

Dear dear Glenda thank you for sharing your insanely fabulous "closet" and drawing those amazing self-portraits :-) See you soon!

Red lip tutorial

A little tutorial/ monologue/ tips by my hand about red lipstick.
Sorry for the "ehhs" and the little silence bits in the video, it was an impulsive one-taker :-)
Have fun trying, practicing, choosing the right color and wearing red lipstick!

Yesterday I was @IJhallen Amsterdam, the biggest flea-market of Europe (as they say :-)
I was selling my past...old shoes, Alice Deejay glitter tops, Olivier's toys etc... 
And when I was installing our little store and went thru the bags and boxes (I am a saver...pffff) there were nostalgic moments over and over again. 
I even found a jacket I wore in a school-picture when I was 16 years old. I saved it for 23 years!!!
Do not know why, because it is way to big. Must be fashion at that time.
Find it funny, that even then, I was wearing white T's with jackets.
So off course we had to make a picture me wearing it and compare it with the school-picture.
How about those eyebrows and that to dark colored hair? 
Did not change a bit :-)
