RACHEL ZOE

29 September 2013

DREAMS Rachel Zoe is seriously with no doubt my rolemodel when it comes to fulfilling your dreams. I love this elegant blazer and dress a lot. Everytime I see new collections from designers and when I buy new clothes, I get goosebumps. Okay, you might think that I'm crazy, but I'm just honest with you. Ever since I was a little girl I had a thing with fashion. A lot comes from my momma. Yep, my momma was and is Überstylish and I think that I got it from her. 

You might wonder why I study law when I'm so passionate about fashion.
When I was five years old I already knew that I wanted to be in fashion. I literally imagined my name next to the big ones. Eventhough I was an extremely shy kid, I truly believed in justice and that no one could get away with harming someone. 
So when I was around 8 or 9 I saw on the news what was happening to innocent people who where murderd in Palestine. I couldn't believe my eyes, and I cried for weeks. I will never forget that image from a little boy and his father. The little boy was begging the soldiers to not kill his father. His father was begging for the life of his son, and guess what. They where both murdered.
Growing up I had a lot of history lessons about my country and what had happend to it. WO II should never have happend. I still wonder how it could go so far. Seeing so many names on memorial places here in Holland makes me cry. Looking at their pictures I wonder, that could have been me. 

So that's why I chose to study law. I really want to help people fighting for their rights, but most of all. To protect them. So in the meantime I will keep my love for fashion by running CHIRIQUE and go shopping ahaha. 

Who knows, I might become the first lawyer/designer in the world.

Only God knows.

Enjoy your day sweets, and God bless!

AZTEK



AZTEK I am obsesed with aztekprints. I bought these sandals and matching clutch in the beginning of Summer and I still love them. The sandals walk so comfortable, and that's what I'm all about. It doesn't matter how drop-on-the-ground gorgeous the shoes might be, if they hurt my feet I won't wear them.
Unfortunatly it's to cold here in Holland to wear them, but I will definetly start wearing them again in the Spring and Summer.

IT'S ALL IN THE PAST NOW

28 September 2013



SUMMERTIMES Ik mis mijn vakantie zo erg. Ik heb maandag, dinsdag en woensdag belangrijke tentamens en het enige wat ik gedaan heb deze afgelopen weken is studeren, studeren en nog meer studeren. AAH zomer, waarom heb je me zo snel verlaten!
Ik hoop dat ik het goed doe deze dagen, want ik vind school heel erg belangrijk en daarnaast hou ik niet van falen. 
Hoe zit het met jullie? Zijn jullie al gewend geraakt aan het vroeg opstaan om naar school te gaan? Ik ga niet liegen, ik nog steeds niet. Ik hou er niet van om mijn bedje helemaal alleen te laten ahaha. 

Spreek jullie snel chica's!

I miss my vacation so much, I have big tests on monday, tuesday and wednesday and the only thing that I´m doing these weeks are studying, studying and more studying. AAH Summer, why did you leave me that soon! I hope that I´ll do good on those days, because I really think that school is important and besides, I don´t like to fail. 

How about you? Are you getting used a wake up freaking early and go to school? I'm not going to lie,  I really don't. I don't like to leave my bed alone all by itself hahaha.

Talk to you soon chica's!

MONTE-CARLO

24 September 2013



MONTE-CARLO This country is so freaking gorgeous. It is extremely little, but that doesn't mean anything. When I was walking down the boulevard and when I was driving through Monaco I coudn't believe what I was seeing. I am a carlover ( I'm not intrested in the mechanic parts, I just like nice cars ahaha) and I have never seen so many ferrari's, lamborghini's etc. People live there in luxury. I kept thinking like, wauw it looks like these people don't have a clue of what is going on in the world. People are fighting for their lives in Syria, Mali and the list goes on and here they are opening chanel gifts on the street as if it is a bag of candy, like it's nothing. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is, that Monaco to me is a little paradise on earth to escape from reality. There are fancy cars, luxurious shops ( Celine, Prada, Chanel!) and superdelicious desserts.  Like I said before, It is extremely beautiful and it really has grace. No wonder Monaco fell in love with the actress and later princes Grace. She was so beautifull and elegant.

I recommend you to go there at least ones in your life, or two, or three.. or just life there ahaha.


Talk to you soon chica's!


With love,

BLUE

22 September 2013


OCEAN BLUE I bought these shoes from Zara in the Summer and I have worn them for the first time last week I believe. They are wedge sneakers but they are really comfortable to walk in and I think that they are an investment for my shoe collection. I have worn them with shorts and with jeans. So eventhough they are blue shoes, you can still wear them with different outfits to different occasions.  I go to the University (yeahh I got in!) in the big city and I have to walk a lot! Trust me when I say that you can walk in these babies while you are carrying all your books and your laptop and ofcourse yourself.
Enjoy the rest of your day and night Lobies,-WZ-

Monaco

GET ON THE HIGHWAY (MONACO SERIE)



MONACO LOVING I love the feeling I get when I travel by car and stop at gas stations. Anyone that is ever been on a roadtrip (you also need to like roadtrips) know's what I'm saying. Call me an oldschool traveller, I just really dig that feeling of putting my feet on the ground of a country. 
While I was in the Cote d'Azur, I thought it would be fun to visit Monaco. I only knew Monaco from the famous actress Grace Kelly and Prins Albert's wedding. She was seriously such a natural beauty. The way she passed away sceared me a lot, since I went to Monaco by car ( a big bus to be precise). The trip in Monaco was really scary, but it all paid off when we where finally there. 
I'm in love with Monaco and her beauty ( and OMG those car's!, It was like Fast & the Furious 1,2,3,4,5 and 6!)

Until next time,

YOU BRIGHT UP MY DAY

17 September 2013


POP I love to experiment with makeup, fashion and ofcourse hair. I don't wear hairextentions ( I'm pure natural haha), but I do like to experiment
with trying out different haircolours ( I've been blonde, black, redishbrown and a brunette). Since I was fourteen I really wanted to colour the ends of my hair blue. I just didn't wanted to bleach my hair. I'm not a fan of damaged hair, me no gusta. Okay let's get serious, I'm just goofing around. I'm so freaking sick, you have no idea :(.
When my little brother got his haircut I saw some fun bright hairmakeup. It doesn't damage your hair and it's really fun. I bought two colours from the hairdresser and I thought that I could put it in my hair when I went on vacation to Spain, France and Monaco. 

While I was in Spain I did some errands and guess what. I found more hairmakeup and it was so freaking cheap! I bought them in four colours.
I will post an article very soon to show you how you put it in your hair and how to style it with clothes and accesorries ofcourse!

// the two colours above (pink and blue) where bought at the hairdresser for €13,95// the other four colour where bought in Spain for €1,99//

HER BIG DAY!

16 September 2013


On Saterday one of my closest friends got married. I'm so happy for her and I still can't believe that she's a married woman! I knew my lovely friend since we where twelve years old. And look at us now. I'm a law student at the University and in my free time a fashionblogger and she is a married woman and also a student at the University. Trust me when I say that dreams do come true. I always dreamed of being in the fashion world and being a lawyer. Trying to combine those two different world's sound to so many people impossible. Not to me. If you want something, you have to work for it.  I'm not there YET, but I'm doing my best to make it all happen. And I will make it happen. So if you got a dream, YOU can make it happen. Trust me!

God Bless you'll!

KITTENS & COTTON CANDY

13 September 2013






Besides fashion and ofcoure my family, the two other loves of my live are kittens and cotton candy. I love love love cotton candy so much. Aahaha, It's just really good. When I was a little girl, I had a lot of animals. The last animal I had ( He left me! He got lost and took of I think) was a cat. His name is Gino. After searching and crying ( I was 16 at the time) for more than two years, my family stopped looking. They gave up and thought he was dead. I on the other hand didn't gave up. I felt that he was still alive. When he was 4 years missing I saw him! Right where my dentist was. I kept calling his name, but he didn't knew me anymore. I felt really sad, but I also felt relieved. My sweet Gino was still alive. Gosh, I can't believe how much I loved and still love that animal. Okay ahaha enough! Let's talk fashion!

Talk to you soon!
Have a nice weekend dolls, It's Friday!

COTE D'AZUR

07 September 2013


COTE D'AZUR Everybody has to go to the south of France at least ones in their lives. It is so amazingly beautiful. I loved seeing St. Maxime and St. Tropez for one entire week all day and night but I don't see myself living here. It is really pricy here and I need my own big city. It's like people don't know about the recession and the economic crisis that hit Europe and my own country ( The Netherlands).  If you haven't been in Cote D'Azur, don't worry. I filmed it all for you. That's my little gift to you, since you all are so kind to me all the time. I'm not going to lie, I really missed Paris and all the hectic that the city gives, but I love that. So I think I'm planning a trip to Paris very soon. To keep me a little busy in my stay in France I brought my girls with my ( Vogue NL, Glamour NL, ELLE, Grazia, Cosmopolitan) and I watched the Rachel Zoe Project on my iphone. OMG BTW, I am addicted to that serie. Fashion 24/7, it's bananas hahah.
