New In: Action Home Decorations ❤

I have an 'Action' store right outside my house basically and I try to go in there regularly. They have the cutest home decorations. Walking down the aisles of Action always makes me so happy to be living on my own, knowing that I can buy anything I want without roommates disagreeing.
I never ever go home empty-handed. I do try not to go overboard, because their prices are so cheap. It's easy to get overwhelmed.

I'm actually really excited to show you what I bought recently.
Haha just now I noticed that it's crooked
I saw this heart pastry holder from a far and knew it had to go into my basket. My favorite fashion blogger DulceCandy, once posted an instagram picture where she used a pastry holder as her new jewelry holder. So original! Mine isn't exactly the same as hers was, but will probably have the same purpose. 
I love candles! I never lit them, but I love having them everywhere around the house. Especially these scented ones.
I loves these types of vases, for the simple fact that they can be empty but still look pretty cute.
Now it probably wasn't the best idea to buy this white carpet. But it was calling my name.. It's going to be impossible to keep this clean but it's nothing a hand wash can't fix. I hope. 
This is probably my most favorite Action item yet! I saw it and there was an instant smile on my face. I don't even drink tea that often! Maybe this cup will change that.
When I'm done re-organizing and re-decorating my home, this will be the last thing I'll put up. A house that will finally feel like home. Well at least, my 2nd home. Curacao will always be my first.

I'll probably visit Action again somewhere in mid- or end of January, to see if they got new items for me to take home.

WANT: Skull Candles ❤

Skulls have been a big trend in the fashion world for quite some time now. I haven't always been a fan of it, but I'm becoming one more and more now. Especially of the skull candles. My house (studio) is pretty feminine with its pink walls and white furniture. But I really want to have some skull candles laying round the house, so the hunt is on!!
Unfortunately all of these pictures above are from weheartit, so there's no way to find out where these candles are from! I even browsed around on ebay..but no luck. I'm not giving up though!

What do you think about skull candles? And do you know where I can find some?

a 10 for Inspiration #071

It's been a while since I last posted an inspiration post has it? But I'm back! It's winterbreak and I haven't done squat..literally. But that's the best thing about being on break right?

This is the last weekend of 2012! Make the best of it... I on the other hand will be spending it in my bed, under my blanket with bunch of food and good movies!

New In: My Dusseldorf Haul ❤

So last saturday I went on a short 1-day trip to Dusseldorf in Germany. We traveled by a big double deck tourbus and 3 hours later we arrived around 12 o'clock. We walked around a few Christmas bazaars where they were selling all types of cute little holiday gifts. But me and my two friends wanted to do some serious clothes shopping, so we went on a hunt for some cute stores. It's funny how we ended up going to stores like Tally Weijl and New Yorker, even though we have them in Holland as well. Surprisingly these stores were soooo much bigger than what I'm used to in the Hague. We did manage to get some really nice stuff!
Funny how everything I bought is either very edgy from the metallic (gold/silver) trend or very girly in the rose pink color. Wasn't intentional at all.

New Concept: Boudoir by Mail ❤

I just read about a new concept similar to the monthly beauty boxes that is being introduced this January. I'm talking about: Boudoir by Mail. "Boudoir by Mail is a monthly subscription to receive a luxury panty in the mail. The panty comes in a beautiful package and it's different every month." The panties will be from this luxurious brand called: 'French Boutique'. This is subscription costs 14.95 per month with free shipping.  
Boudoir by Mail's website is now launched, which means you can sign up and order the very first BBM (which will be delivered in January). With a discount 'BBM2012' you'll even get 10% off on the first BBM. But hurry, because this offer is only valid until today: 26th of December 2012!
I am so curious about this new concept! I'll think I'll wait and see how the first BBM turns out to be..and maybe after that I'll even subscribe! What about you?

On My Way: Christmas Bazaar in Dusseldorf ❤

Right this moment I'm on the buss with two of my girlfriends, on our way to Dusseldorf in Germany! :D It's just a one-day trip since we're going to the Christmas Bazaar (Kerstmarkt). But I'm super excited! 
I just can't wait to see a little more of Dusseldorf. I've only been there once this summer since I had a connecting flight going to Curacao. And of course I'm excited to do a little shopping. I can't wait to show you some pictures! I'm not promising anything, but maybe just maybe I'll film a little too. 

I can't wait to make more of these short trips with friends next year! Where are you going to celebrate the holidays?

My Favorites: Kardashian Kollection ❤

As you may or may not know, the Kardashian sisters recently launched their Kardashian Kollection clothing line exclusively at Dorothy Perkins. Now as a Kardashian liker, I was very curious about their new line. But overall, I wasn't really impressed with the whole collection. For such fashionable women, I did expect a lot more. To me the clothes didn't portray the fashionable style of the ladies all that much. However, I did like a few single pieces that I wanted to show you.

What were your thoughts on the KK collection?

Life: Chris Brown CARPE DIEM Concert ❤

Yesterday I seriously had THE TIME OF MY LIFE at the Chris Brown 'CARPE DIEM' concert! I had the V.I.P soundcheck package and it was the best experience everrrrrr. We had an early-entrance pass, received a lot of Carpe Diem souvenirs  attended a really fun and interactive soundcheck with Chris Brown and a part of his CBE crew (DJ, background singer and a few of his dancers including TIMOR STEFFENS!! :D). We also had the privilege of being the first ones to buy Chris Brown & Carpe Diem merchandise and we had a whole section in front of the stage especially for us! I was front row the entire night, so no surprise I had a fantastic night!!! 
I felt so special with this thing around my neck! 
I was stalking him so hard at the afterparty lol
The merchandise I got :D
pictures 4,6,9,11 & 14 are not taken by me.
I wanted to upload a few videos, so you can get a glimpse of the concert.. but it wouldn't upload :(
I've been re-watching the videos all day, with a goofy smile on my face. I will NEVER EVER forget this concert!!!! <3
