RUSH

2/26/2012 The Fashion Estate 51 Comments




Went to a market with Widya this morning (pretty early, as you can see from my tired look) and had a quick tea afterwards. I'm kinda in a rush now, because I have to go to another VJ meeting thingy. In my last post I promised to tell more about that. Well, I'm helping some Video Crew with a theatre project (making videoclips to play during the show, filming the making-of and putting the whole show on dvd). I'm actually 'head direction', which means I have to direct the dvd. Pretty awesome.
Gotta hurry now. The premiere is 6 march and there still is a lot to do!

BUSY DAY

2/22/2012 The Fashion Estate 49 Comments





Woke up at 5AM, cycled to work, cycled back home, cycled to a VJ meeting (more about that later), cycled to Delft, had dinner with my best friend and cycled back home. About 55km through the stormy weather, but I can proudly say I survived. Also, I survived the spiciest dish on the menu of the Indian restaurant where we had dinner. Lot's of curry and peppers, yum!
Wore my favorite silk blouse with some dark blue jeans and my black ankle booties. Plus a coat and scarf to beat the cold. (It wasn't that cold actually, but hey, prevention is better than cure.)
And for now, it's time to grab some sleep, because I'll have to wake up tomorrow as early as I did today. Good night!

T BY A WANG PRE-FALL 2012

2/15/2012 The Fashion Estate 35 Comments



Some might say simplicity is overrated, I actually love it. Now I'm not an everyday jeans/sweater type of girl, but add heels/jacket/scarf and it can be enough for me. Used to be a tights lover btw, but then rediscovered the comfort and easiness of a pair of jeans.

Anyway, I think you can understand why I love the T by Alexander Wang collection for pre-fall 2012. Simple, mainly black and white, super wearable. Just wow.

P.S. Vergeet niet mee te doen met de giveaway! Nog 2 volgers op bloglovin en het kettinkje wordt verloot.

THE PACKAGE

2/15/2012 The Fashion Estate 9 Comments


Promised to make a post about the package I received yesterday, so here it is.
I ordered 7 products for myself and 1 for my bf (the lipbalm from yesterday's post) from Boozyshop.nl. A Dutch e-store, that sells products from about 70 worlwide brands. I made my order last wednesday and the package came in yesterday, so that was pretty fast.
Here's what I bought:


In the first picture you see Burt's Bees Hand Salve. The skin of my hands get extremely dry during winter time and I heard a lot of good things about this hand salve, so I decided to try it. And I have to say it really works! I applied the salve yesterday before work, and normally when I get back from work, my hands look all cracked. But not this time, so thanks Burt's Bees!
Picture 2 shows the famous Mint Julep Masque from Queen Helene. Read some super positive reviews about this product, but I haven't used it yet, so I can't tell you what I think about it.
In picture 3 you see a conditioner from Anatomicals. A really cheap beauty brand, with awesome packagings and (from what I heard about it) nice products.
Number 4 is Batiste Original Dry Shampoo, very curious about this one. Must be perfect for those bad hair days, when you don't have time to wash your hair over and over again.
Next to the dry shampoo you see Queen Helene's Smoothing Conditioner with cacao butter. I ran out of my favourite conditioner but I think this'll be a good replacement. And wow, it's a big packaging! I expected it to be like half this size!
Number 6 is a facial masque from Freeman, I've used this brand before and I can really recommend it. This is the Tangerine Crackling Clay Masque. It smells a bit weird, but it makes your skin super soft.
The last product is Rosebud Salve Menthol & Eucalyptus. I love Rosebud Salve and I love menthol and eucalyptus too, so this really is the perfect lip balm for me.

If anyone has a question about Boozyshop.nl or the products, feel free to ask!

LOVELY VALENTINE'S

2/14/2012 The Fashion Estate 10 Comments







1) Flowers for my grandpa-in-law's bday
2) Little Valentine's present for the sweetest mom on earth
3) My package got delivered, yay!
4) My bf ran out of the cacao butter vaseline I gave him once, so I got him a new one
5) Heating some vanilla scented wax tablet, mmm.

Little post to wish all of you a happy Valentine's Day. Mine was lovely. My boyfriend came over, even though I told him not to, since he's ill. So sweet! Furthermore, my order from some webstore came in, such a great timing. I'll make a post about what's in the package tomorrow!

P.S. Nog 3 volgers op bloglovin en dan gaan we het kettinkje van de giveaway verloten!

WALKING THE DOG

2/12/2012 The Fashion Estate 59 Comments






Had a nice walk in the snow with Widya and her doggy Timo today. I generally like large dogs better than small ones, but I have to admit this little friend is super cute.
I wasn't wearing anything special at all, because sunday is my lazy day and I spend it mostly wearing a cosy sweater and jeans (or pajamas, even better).

Had a celebration dinner with my bf's family yesterday (happy b'day grandpa-in-law!) and spent today outside with my friend, eating home-made pumpkin soup when I came home and taking a bath after that. Lovely weekend for sure, hope you've all had such a good one!

SNOWY ROTTERDAM

2/10/2012 The Fashion Estate 24 Comments





Went to Rotterdam today with my friend Widya to go home shopping (again, yes). I was actually searching for a wooden tray, but I couldn't find a nice one, so I'll keep on searching. Had some tea and cinnamon cookies at my friend's place afterwards and then cycled back home for dinner.
I was wearing a blouse from the man's department by the way. Was meant to be my little brother's, but I kept it myself since it's super comfy.
Have a nice weekend everyone!

P.S. You can still join our giveaway!

FENDI PRE-FALL 2012

Some looks from Fendi's pre-fall 2012 collection I'd love to add to my closet. Perfect use of black/white/grey with a hint of pastels and brown.
And look at those fabrics! 
The sweater and coat in the first picture look super soft and huggable. And I wouldn't say no to those bags and shoes either, phew!

Liebster Award

LIEBSTER AWARD

2/07/2012 The Fashion Estate 10 Comments



Yesterday we got a message from Paris (Glitterati &Glamour), she gave us the Liebster Award!
This is an award that can be given to any blog with less than 200 followers, it's actually meant to make those blogs little more known.
When you get the award, you have to write down five random facts about yourself and award five blogs you like (and that have less than 200 followers).

Since Constant isn't back yet, I'll follow up the instructions myself. So here we go, five facts about me:
1) I love cooking. I can spend a full day in the kitchen without getting bored. The only disadvantage is cleaning up the sink afterwards...
2) I like sports, especially snowboarding. I cycle rather than catching the bus, and I'm a member of the local gym.
3) I don't eat meat/fish/chicken/rennet/gelatin, just because I love animals. I simply don't like eating things I love.
4) I never ever wear nail polish, because I'm not patient enough to apply it. I hate when it doesn't dry quickly and I accidentally use my hands and the nail polish gets all ugly.
5) The cup in the picture above is not the Liebster Award of course, it's a cup for a debating competition. I won it when I was the captain of a debating team in college.

These are the blogs I pass the award on to, because I think they deserve more followers (and believe me, it was pretty difficult to choose between all of the inspirational blogs I'm following!):
1) http://yourlifestyleguide.blogspot.com/
2) http://letsdothepenguin.blogspot.com/
3) http://americole.blogspot.com/
4) http://ikbenmrska.blogspot.com/
5) http://irisistible-iris.blogspot.com/

Thanks again, Paris!

GOOD LIFE

2/05/2012 The Fashion Estate 22 Comments












1-2) Stuff I bought this week
3) Dates, yummy!
4) Listening OneRepublic on Youtube
5) My mum's cooking-pears
6) Pretty evening sky


Above you see some real magical sunglasses I bought a couple of days ago. These actually are the first aviators that don't make my face look extremely weird, so I took home two of them immediately.
Also bought a new pocket umbrella, since my old one almost broke during last week's stormy weather. And a cute tin filled with cinnamon mints to replace my empty liquorice mints tin (always carry some minty candies with me, little addiction).

Cleaned up my messy room today while listening OneRepublic – Good Life, read a book while eating dates and watched series while drinking tea. And to make this day even better, we had my mum's delicious cooking-pears for dinner.
Perfect Sunday, I'd say.

TEA TIME

2/03/2012 The Fashion Estate 32 Comments








Went to The Hague for a high tea with my gorgeous friend Sharine. I love high teas (lots of yummy food and unlimited tea, need I say more?). And to be honest, this was my 4th high tea in two months. Call it a guilty pleasure.
As you can see, we finally got some snow in Holland (caused us a lot of trouble with the railways and buses, but the prettiness makes up for that) and I've also seen some ice skaters on the frozen ponds. Planning on putting my skates on tomorrow as well, if the ice still is solid enough by then.
I wore 5 layers to beat the cold, including my mum's furry vest and my leather jacket. And a headband that I actually bought for snowboarding trips, but I'm starting to like it for daily use too, since it's getting this cold.

SURVIVING THE COLD

2/01/2012 The Fashion Estate 19 Comments







Just found out I'm absolutely unprepared for this week's extremely cold weather (it's -5 degrees at this very moment). There're mainly blouses and blazers in my closet, instead of the chunky knitwear I need. Glad I found an old Lacoste jumper made of wool at the back of my closet. And I'm lucky to have a big collection of scarves and gloves, so I won't be completely freezing.
Helped my friend Widya furnishing her new home today, so I wasn't wearing something special. Just an old pair of jeans and the only flat shoes I own. (Notice my big feet? I ordered these boots 2 sizes big, but didn't dare to send them back because of the bad service that the web store offers. They still owe me a lot of money.)
