a 10 for Inspiration #025

Hello lovelies,
I know I have been slacking on my blog and I am truly sorry. There are so many reasons for that, but the main one is: writer's block. Lately I just can't come up with ideas on what to blog, it really sucks! But since today is Friday, I decided to treat you with some really fashionable pictures.
Happy Weekend!

My 21st Birthday! ❤

So yesterday (17 September) was my 21st birthday! But the celebration started since last Thursday when I went clubbin with my bestfriend for her birthday. The next day I went to Utrecht (to do my hair) but instead I got the biggest surprise of my life!!! My mom flew all the way from Curacao and surprised me for my 21st birthday and it was the best present I could ever receive! I celebrated at home with my family and later that night I went clubbin with my friends and cousins. The night out started with me being very pissed when we got denied at every single club in the city. It was very rude and we felt very discriminated, to a point where I just wanted to go home. But my friends convinced me to try one last time, and we ended up having a lot of fun at the last club.

Here are some pictures of my birthday celebration.

Belle Noel by Kim Kardashian ❤

It's no secret that I love the Kardashians. I love their shows, I love their personalities, but most of all I love their sense of style. They always know what's in style and they know how to dress properly. Also giving credit to their amazing stylist, Monica Rose.
Therefore I for one, am very excited about Kim launching her own jewelry line. I don't know any girl that wouldn't want a piece of Kim in their jewelry box.

The jewelry line called Belle Noel, which was collaborated by Kim and famous jewelers Pascal Mouawad, was launched in February of this year.
Kim wanted a collection that would reflect her personal style, as well as making it easier for women to go from  wearing a simple outfit to an more dressier look, without having to change up her jewelry.

"Belle Noel is inspired by the costume jewelry that became popular in the 30s. My collection ranges from modest everyday items and exuberant creations while some styles 'edgier' than others was very important to me that the collection is always feminine appeal retains."

Here are some of the pieces I totally fell in love with...

From top to bottom we have the Cut Out Cuff, Scarab Cocktail Ring, Disc Trapezoid Earrings and my ultimate favorite Egyptian Hair Chain.

The prices of these jewelries are all much more affordable than what the Kardashians usually flaunt around with, seeing that the prices of the whole collection ranges between €35 and €80

If you live in Holland and you want to rock some of these gorgeous pieces, you can get them at Wear for Love. If you don't live in Holland but still want to purchase something out of this collection, check customer service for the shipping costs. Also follow them on twitter.

What do you think of this collection?

COTS Blog Cards ❤

I'm was super excited when I was walking home from school, because I knew there was a special package in my mail box.

As COTS is growing in followers and traffic, I wanted to take my blog to the next extent and create some business cards. The whole idea behind it was, that I want to be able to associate with other bloggers when attending events. Most of the time a lot of pictures are taken and links are being swapped, so I want other bloggers to be able to find me and my blog as well. I am super satisfied with how it turned out. Cute and Girly.

From now on I'll be taking these everywhere I go, you never know when it might come in handy. What do you think about my cards? Do you have some of your own blog as well?

note: in case you were wondering I made mines at ;)

Event: Grazia PC Catwalk ❤

Yesterday was the Grazia PC Catwalk show in Amsterdam. Many people attended to watch some fierce-looking models strut their stuff on the longest catwalk Holland has ever seen. When I say long, I do mean looong. The catwalk was 320m long!
It looked so cool, I wish I was one of the models..

The show opened with a few dancers showing of their moves and finalists of this year's X - Factor (Holland), Adlicious who gave us a little performance with some backup dancers. And a few rain drops later the show started.
What I have noticed was that dark colors are definitely in style this season. A lot of collections consisted of some black, grey, brown and navy blue. Even the lipsticks on some models were dark colors.
But luckily there was also a pop of color in some of the collections, like the ones on the picture below, which are from Azzurro Fashion Group. Eventhough the dark colors was empowered this whole show, I still liked the fact that the majority of the female models wore icy blue eyemakeup and pink lips.
The fashion showed during the entire catwalk could definitely make anybody excited about the next fall and winter. Boots, Trenchcoats, Scarves, Leather Jackets.. just anything to keep you warm, but still look like something ripped out of a fashion magazine.

I'm going to share a few videos that I recorded with my simple digital camera, so excuse me if you think the quality is bad/wrong. Also I was recording holding the camera vertically and I have no knowledge of video editing (no matter how simple it is) what-so-ever. I couldn't figure out how to rotate the video. So I'm sorry for the neck pain you'll be have after watching.

Wanted to upload a few more, but apparently Blogger wouldn't let me. Very weird.

I attended the PC Catwalk with one of my good friends and fellow blogger Omaily from Shades of Sexy Little Things

 Since this was actually my first event attending as a fashion blogger, I thought I'd share my outfit of the day with you. And because I know I have been promising this for a while now. Today I basically wore something a little simple, since I knew that the weather wasn't going to be all that nice. Luckily it didn't rain as much as expected.

What I Wore:
H&M Striped Sweater
Miley Cyrus & Max Azria Black Leggings
Golden Chain Necklace (Bought in Curaçao)
H&M Golden Wing Ring & Golden Chunky Ring
H&M Black Wedges

I sure hope this isn't the only event I'll get to attend.
Who attended the Grazia PC Catwalk as well? Did you?
