New In: My First Forever21xAMSTERDAM Haul ❤

Hello lovies! I added 'first' to the title, because obvi this won't be my last time shopping at Forever21 now that we have one in Amsterdam! Click to see my blog post about the big opening. Now I know I said I was going to attempt filming my haul... but I totally chickened out haha. I am just not comfortable yet being in front of a rolling camera. But nevertheless, I knew some of you were still curious about my purchases. So here they are...

Wish I could have taken home all of these clothes..

If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen me wearing this dress already while I was in the fitting room. It was basically love at first sight. But when I saw that the price was less than €20, I knew we belonged together.

Seeing as I am so into the tropical print lately, I didn't even think twice about getting this beautiful midi skirt for less than €13.
This is the perfect little bra top for all my summer cut-out tops/muscle tees. Love the cute daisies on it as well.

The accessories department was p-a-c-k-e-d, but I still managed to grab literally the last of these suuuuper adorable sunflower hairbun ties. Yaay for me!

So that is all that I got this time. As I mentioned already, it wasn't a huge haul. But I am super happy with everything and I can't wait to go back and splurge a little more next time.

Outfit: First KingsNight at Club Vie ❤

Heey lovies! Can't believe my last blog post was over a week ago. School has been drowning my social and bloggerslife lately. But I did get to party last Friday night for the very first Dutch Kingsnight. I think it might take me a few more years to get used to saying King instead of Queen haha. Me and a couple of friends from school went to Club Vie, mainly because August Alsina was making an appearance! ❤___❤ The club was PACKED, you literally could not stand in one spot without getting pushed to the side. But the music was so good, so by the end of the night I literally had to declare my feet as being dead...

Whenever I go out, it's always such a hassle for me to decide what to wear. I didn't want to look all patriotic and wear the flag colors or orange. So in the end, I decided to pair my new black bralet top from H&M with a neon pink peplum skirt from Bershka. Had this skirt for precisely one year and this was the first time wearing it. For the shoes, I went with the simplest pair of black H&M wedges. I wanted to look cute, but I also wanted to be able to dance comfortably for at least 3 hours ya feel me?

Watch August smile at and "sing" to me :$ haha

How did you celebrate Kingsnight/Kingsday?

Grand Opening: Forever21 x Amsterdam ❤

Heey lovies, happy Saturday! I got home from Amsterdam a while ago but I am still very ex-haus-ted! I was going to leave this post for tomorrow morning, but I thought what the heck.. lemme just do it now. So if you want to know all about my personal experience at the GRAND OPENING of FOREVER21 in Amsterdam, you better prepare yourself.. cause it's going to be a picture overload!

I arrived at Rokin somewhat before 9AM, which is a lot later than I had originally planned. Had to wait in line for about an hour while freezing to death. But it was so worth it, because I was one of the first 500 people in line which resulted in me getting a €21 gift card. I'm getting my student loan till the 24th, so I was definitely counting on this extra shopping money LOL. After so much anticipation, I was in awe the moment I stepped through the sliding doors. The store is HUMONGOUS. I knew about the many floors, but this was beyond my imagination! All floors were packed with excited females (because there was no men section), grabbing everything that caught their eye and dropping them in their basket. I tried to go through all the racks, but it was just not happening!

New In: YOUNG HUNGRY FREE Pink Floral Pants ❤

Heey lovies! Don't you just love when you've purchased something, totally forgot about it, only for it to appear in your mailbox weeks later? It's like being a kid on Christmas morning! Or just an indication that I might be shopping just a tad bit too much.. But either way, I received these beautiful floral pants today and I couldn't wait to try them on and give you guys a look. These beauties are from YOUNG HUNGRY FREE, a shop I discovered with the help of Jenn Im. They are a total hidden gem, if you ask me!

After ripping the package open and trying the pants on, I immediately had outfit visions. Does that ever happen to you? I am totally loving these pants with my new Nelly heels and maybe a white bralet on top. Or white sandals with a black moto jacket. Endless possibilities. And these beauties were less than €16 with additional €3(!!) intl shipping costs. Now on to the not so good part: the pants do not have the best quality, so I'll definitely be hand washing these. And because they are Asian sizes, you have to be really careful when converting them into your usual sizes. My thigh area feels a bit tight when sitting. But I don't know, maybe that's just because I've been squatting a lot lately HAHA.

All top photos failed unfortunately!

I'll take the good with the not so good qualities, because these are still very pretty and SS/14 appropriate. I can definitely see myself purchasing other items from YOUNG HUNGRY FREE soon. You should take a look as well! :-) But for now, how do you like my new floral pants?

They're like a real-size barbie doll...without a face..and limbs HAHA. So from now on I can consider myself as a true Fashionista! Eeeek I am so so happy Xenos had these on sale.

What's Missing in my SS/14 Wardrobe? ❤

Heey lovies! Do you know that saying "I have enough clothes - says no woman ever"? Well, that is basically my reality! I always feel like adding more pieces to my wardrobe to make it complete. But does it ever come to that? You guessed it....NOPE! Even now for spring and summer, I have a few pieces in mind that I would like to add soon. They would totally spice up my wardrobe and bring tons of fresh new outfit possibilities.

The first piece is OBVIOUSLY going to be some GLADIATOR SANDALS! I don't think I've ever obsessed about anything more than I have about these particular shoes. And the thing is, because I'm so short I don't even know how they'll look. All I know is, I WANT them and I NEED them in my life. The gold chunky and the white elegant ones above are from both Boohoo.com. The black knee-high one, which is soooo perfect is from Heelberry. But my little shopaholic heart is broken, because it is all sold out now </3

You can't really feel the Spring and Summer vibe without having any TROPICAL PRINTS hanging in your closet right? Well not really, but let's just pretend that's true! I'm loving all three of these pieces, but the palm print top from RiverIsland is definitely my favorite! The black pleated shorts are from Forever21 and the cute ombre skater skirt is from Boohoo.com.

New In: Nelly High Heels Event Shoes + Dress ❤

Heey loves! Remember the Nelly High Heels event I attended last month? I finally received my beautiful shoes and I couldn't wait to show you! ^__^ The night of the event I also received a goodiebag with a gorgeous blue dress inside! So of course I wanted to show you that as well.

I ended up getting my second choice, which at first was a little disappointing. My first choice were these black gladiator high heels, which I was so stoked about at the event. I even thought of possible outfits and everything! But after getting over that (such first world problems right?), I realized that these brown babies were my second choice for a reason. They are very cool. I love that they are a neutral brown color, so I'll be able to wear them with just anything this spring/summer. And I appreciate all the straps and buckles, because it gives the shoe a Gladiator feel to it which I am obviously obsessing about. 
Nlly Dress Nelly.com Silver Cobalt Chain Dress
The wall didn't do the dress justice at all, so here is the actual link to the silver/cobalt Oneness Chain Dress.

So so happy with my shoes! I tried them on and I must honestly say, that my feet look super cute in them lol. If you are interested in either the brown Buckle Sandals or the dress, you would like to know that both of these items are now on sale with 50% off.  :-)

Cheers to the freakin... Inspiration #06 ❤

Heey lovies! This weekend will definitely not be a fun one, since I am spending most of it studying for the three exams I have next week. I also have two papers that I need to work on, so I'll be so busy! But luckily I have no school the week after that, so I can relax a bit before the last semester starts. I really hope you guys have more fun this weekend.

Two Buns Hair Style ❤

Happy Friday lovies! Let's talk about this fun hair style that's apparently a super big trend at the moment: the Two Buns Hair Style. Some of you might think it's the most ridiculous thing ever, while some of you might think it's uber cool. Because I myself couldn't make up my mind about it yet, I decided to try it on on my own hair. 
two buns hair style for summer
This is the result! I'm actually still not sure how I like it (on me), but it's not horrific. I definitely think this is a cute hair style for a day outdoors. And the messier the buns, the cooler it looks. For a more playful look, I added a blue flower crown from Forever21. 

I'll definitely try this hair style again, and this time I'll try to make my hair buns a little messier and bigger. For now, I won't be leaving the house like this. But who knows, maybe in the summer I've changed my mind! :)

What do you think about the Two Buns Hair Style? Let me know in the comment section.
