Fashion collages inspiration

30 March 2014

When I tried to find some inspiration for a schoolproject, I saw some really cool collages in the Dutch Elle style guide from last year. I thought they really looked cool, they have those collages also in the new Style Guide. I don't know if other "Elle's" has those style guides. The Dutch Elle have for each season a new style guide. It's a really lovely and thick extra magazine. Great to collect. 

Here are the collages that I made for my project. I used the clothes from the designer webshop: Far Fetch. The backgrounds from Tumblr.

Spring vibes 4

27 March 2014

The color blue, in 2013 all the fashion magazine's said in their trend reports that blue is the color of this spring! I haven't seen a lot of people wearing blue lately, but it's more on the internet than on the street. Which is weird, because everyone can pull it off. I have to say that I don't have a lot of blue items in my closet. But I have some high waisted jean shorts! That's also something blue, what is your true blue favorite item?

Classic Chains

26 March 2014

Statement necklaces, it's everywhere. Who doesn't like them? You can wear it on flawless promdresses or a basic top. There are different variations, how you could wear a statement necklace. There are a lot of different types too. I'm now talking about a really common statement necklace, the classic chain necklace. You may have seen these on the web or in the store.

When I got this package from, on Friday. I was pretty dissapointed of this quality, I hoped for a silver necklace. Not real silver, but just the material. This necklace was made of plastic, it sounds like plastic and it feels like it. So I bet it is. I was sad though, but the necklace looks really good. You can also see a little reflection because of the fake silver layer. This necklace is just $3,99. So I get the quality of the product.

I got this from but who or what is bornprettystore?

BPS Import & Export Co., Ltd was set up in 2010. Over the past three years, it has developed rapidly from a store merely selling nail art items to a shop mainly selling beauty items including nail art items and cosmetics,accessorizes, cell phone cases, etc. 

The website has gained thousands upon thousands of registered customers from all over the world, leading up to millions of sales per month. We offer world wide free shipping and have already shipped to more than 150 countries including United Sates, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Russia, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, Korean, etc. 

The original inspiration of the name born pretty store comes from proverb “each woman is born pretty”. Combining the aim of providing beauty items to the female, we incorporated it into the name “born pretty”store. Bornprettystore is a store intended to provide each ordinary female, whoever they are, wherever they come from, with the latest fashion items of nail art, make up and outfit, helping them find the best way to dress up, which ultimately push outside their potential beauty to the fullest. 

When I tried to wear this necklace, it was pretty hard. The "rings" from the necklace where you close it, is a little bit short. If you want to wear this necklace, I recommend to take some time with it or ask someone to do it for you. You can also wear it as a bracelet if you like, for this I also recommend to ask someone to do if for you or just to take time.



25 March 2014

Some "dead looking things" aren't always scary. I totally adore this skull necklace, I picked two necklaces because I planned to make a DIY post. It's coming soon, I promise. But first, let me tell you about this necklace. I got this necklace from the webshop, I told you earlier about this webshop in my previous post.

Here are some detail pictures.

I thought that the color was lighter, it was on the webshop though. The quality of the pictures on the website is pretty bad to be honest. You can see a lot of pixels. I almost thought that the necklace was silver.. and it isn't. I'm pretty dissapointed. The quality is good for the price, it's not easy to break so that's a good point!



24 March 2014

Waaah, aliens are everywhere! This print is maybe a little bit creepy, but I love it! I wanted an oversized sweater. I got like 10 or so.. I can't get enough. So I ordered this sweater instead of my regular size (S), the size M. I think it fits better when this sweater is oversized. It's warm and lovely to wear, for a school day for example.

This sweater is from Persunmall, and the quality is just like normal knitted sweaters. What or who is persunmall?

" is one of the first online stores that has already elaborated millions of fashionistas' high fashion look. Based in China, PersunMall offers the latest street style dresses, coats, boots and many other accessories for women apparel.

Our mission is to constantly provide our customers with the latest fashionable clothing."

I ordered this sweater on February 28th, and I got my package on Martch 21th. They ship from China, and I live in The Netherlands. It takes 3 weeks for the package to get here. China - The Netherlands is a pretty long ride. I also saw that the package came with a plane. I think it's always cool to see where the package went through to get to the final destination. 

When I ordered this package, I immediately got a tracking code in my mail. But it's pretty hard to see on the website when it has arrived. I couldn't understand the website that well sometimes. Because it said that they couldn't find the package. I don't know why.. but in the end it has arrived. 


What i'm currently watching

21 March 2014

Who doesn't love series? I'm addicted to them! Here's my list what i'm currently watching at the moment, they're brand new so i'm waiting for the English subs to come out.


Raku Ichijou is an average high school student. He also happens to be the sole heir to the head of a Yakuza Family called the Shuei-gumi. Ten years ago, Raku made a promise… a secret promise with a girl he met. They promised one another that they will “get married when they reunite”. Since then, Raku never let go of the pendant the girl gave him.

Then one day, a beautiful girl named Chitoge Kirisaki transfers into Raku’s class. Their chemistry was more than off. There was not a moment where they were not fighting. But by a weird turn of events, Raku and Chitoge agree to become fake lovers. Although his heart is really interested in his classmate Kosaki Onodera, Raku must continue pretending to be Chitoge’s boyfriend.


In this modern magic action story, Takeshi Nanase is an ordinary high school boy who has a somewhat dark past. Due to certain circumstances, he formed a “fake” couple with his childhood friend Kurumi Isoshima, but otherwise, he lives a normal life. However, one day, he comes across a girl named Mui Aiba, in a uniform he has never seen before, collapsed on the school campus. This encounters changes Takeshi’s destiny completely. Mui tells Takeshi that she is a magician, and she apologizes, for she turned Takeshi into a magician, too. What Takeshi once knew as one world is actually two—the world where magicians live and the world where humans live.


When the national idol Kusakabe Yuka suddenly retired from the entertainment business, it shocked the world and it devastated teenager Hata Kosaku. Kosaku was Yuka’s biggest fan and her departure left him depressed. His classmates at the Tamo Agriculture School finally are able to get him to leave his room and attend his class, but to everyone’s amazement, Kusakabe Yuka (her stage name) comes into the class under the name Kinoshita Ringo as a transfer student. Kosaku realizes he has the once in a lifetime opportunity to get to personally know his dream girl and, together with his group of friends, try to find out why she is here and become closer than just classmates.

I really recommend those drama's, these are finished ones. With English subs, and episodes! I already finished those. I'm such an addict haha.


The edits and effects are really good in this drama. This isn't a standard lovey dovey drama. It has some cool things in it. It doesn't matter if you're a guy, you can watch this drama for sure! My boyfriend and I watched this drama together. Actually, I started watching the drama because of him. I love the main character, she did a really good job in this drama. You can really cry with her!

Can an alien understand a modern Korean woman? Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) is an alien in the form of a perfect human specimen who arrived on Earth 400 years ago during the Chosun Dynasty. While living among the inferior human species, Min Do has always been cynical toward his human neighbors. But in modern-day Korea, Min Do meets top actress Cheon Song Yi (Gianna Jun) and falls in love with her. Can the cross-species couple possibly have a future together? “You Who Came From the Stars,” also known as “Man From the Stars,” is a 2013 South Korean drama series directed by Jang Tae Yoo.


I just finished watching this 4 episode drama. 4 episode drama's are so short, but still so good! This drama is so touching, and exciting. You never know what happens the next time. I recommend this drama because it's really good, they ended this drama pretty well. Even though it's still sad, i'm not going to spoil everything! Just read the synopsis and watch.

What mysterious fate entwines the lives of webtoon writer and his first love from high school, Mimi? Han Min Woo (Max Chang Min) is a 28-year-old webtoon writer who is suffering from partial memory loss. He writes a new webtoon series called “December 8” after finding a memo on his desk calendar, and the webcomic becomes an instant hit. As he faces increasing pressure with the webtoon’s popularity, he begins to experiences severe headaches and an increasing desire to recover his lost memory from when he was an 18-year-old high school student. His experiences with his first love, Mimi (Moon Ga Young), during that year may help him to discover his true fate for his future. “Mimi” is a 2014 South Korean drama series directed by Song Chang Su. It comprises four 70-minute episodes and is inspired by the 2007 film “M” by Lee Myung Se.


This drama is a 4 episode drama, it's really short just like "Mimi". The K-POP star Lee Ki Kwang of B2ST is just playing himself in this drama. So for the fans of B2ST, watch, watch, watch this drama! Some people wished they were Hye Rim (The main character of the drama).

What could be better than to be young and in love? In this romantic drama series about the best years of your youth and the rosy glow of love, idol star Ki Kwang (Lee Ki Kwang of B2ST) is a young man in love with Hye Rim, a girl he went to middle school with and shared his first kiss. Will romance among 20-year-olds be as pure and wonderful as they hope it will be? “20’s” is a 2013 South Korean drama series.



You think, say what? Sex in the City... the Chinese version. Oh hell no. I was also surprised of this title. It's nothing like Sex in the City. The creators of this "Chinese version" created this drama based on Sex in the City as we know. I think it's a funny drama, I couldn't get enough! The story is good, so if you are curious just like me. Watch this drama.

Four women are trying to find a balance with work, relationships and friendships while living in the big city. “Sex and the City [China Version]” is a 2012 Chinese Web drama series that is based on the popular American television show.


Park Yoochun, that we know as TVXQ member... oh he can really act. I also saw him in the drama: "I miss you". I also recommend that drama, there are too much good drama's. I don't know if that's a good thing. Oh, well back to this drama: "Three days". You don't know which one is good and which one is bad. Oh.. plottwists!

Three days can change the destiny of a country. South Korean President Lee Dong Hwi (Son Hyun Joo) goes to a remote villa for vacation. Three gunshots ring out, and the president disappears. Han Tae Kyung (Park Yoochun) and his colleagues in the Blue House Secret Service, with the help of Police Constable Yoon Bo Won (Park Ha Sun), have only three days to investigate the mysterious disappearance and find the president. Can Tae Kyung expect help or hindrance from those around him, including Chief Secretary Shin Kyu Jin (Yoon Je Moon), SWAT Team Agent Lee Cha Young (So I Hyun), and Presidential Security Service Chief Ham Bong Soo (Jang Hyun Sung)? Can Tae Kyung beat the clock to find the president? “Three Days” is a 2014 South Korean drama series directed by Shin Kyung Soo.


You don't know how much I cried in this drama, I just started this drama yesterday and I watched all 6 episodes that was online. I can't wait to the next episode, I can't waait. This drama is so good, you don't know what happens next. In every episode there is another thing that you want to know. Cliffhangers are so bad, they make you so curious. I just hate that haha. I guess that's why it's good. You can really feel when the main actress Kim Soo Hyun is feeling sad or happy.

When a mother loses a child, she harbors many regrets and broods about the many things she would have done differently if given another chance. Kim Soo Hyun (Lee Bo Young) always pushed her daughter, Saet Byeol (Kim Yoo Bin), to not only do well in school but also to always come in first place. But tragedy strikes when Saet Byeol is kidnapped and killed, leaving Soo Hyun and her husband, Han Ji Hoon (Kim Tae Woo), with no clues as to who could have done such a terrible thing and why. Detective Ki Dong Chan (Jo Seung Woo) struggles to find the killer, while Detective Hyeon Woo Jin (Jung Gyu Woon), who shares a past with Soo Hyun, tries to do what he can. But when Soo Hyun is given a chance to go back in time to change the course of events, can she find the killers and save her daughter’s life in time? “God’s Gift – 14 Days” is a 2014 South Korean drama series directed by Lee Dong Hoon.

Art History

19 March 2014

Here's an update what I made in my Art History classes. Every week, we have to make a drawing on paper in the same art style in that time period. We go from the then to now.

We started with the wall drawings from the prehistory. The teacher also explains in every lesson what happend in that time period, what was normal and what not. It's interesting! But at some point in the lesson, mostly at the end of the lesson. We get bored and we want to go home. We have to make the drawings at home!

This is my first drawing that I send in, I got a 9.

This was from Mesopotamia. The teacher thought this wasn't really from this time period, he said that it was more Egyptian. I got a 8,3.

Don't forget Egypt! I really love the wonderful colors that they used back then. The drawings are so detailed and lovely. I also got a 8,3 for this one.

It was so hard to make this, I tried several times to re-create the drawings from the Greeks/Romans. I love the black and red pottery, with the drawings.

Spring vibes 3

18 March 2014

Spring vibes 3 Bright colors, sun, and flowers! That's what pop's in my head when I think about spring. I'm starting a new weekly series. Because of the new season: SPRING! It's a bit early, but the month March does scream spring. Early or not, inspiration is always lovely!

Pinky paradise! Pink is the color of girls, the color of sweetness. Why don't you wear it this spring, pastel pink is joyful. So start this early spring with colorful colors to spread the joy!


17 March 2014

I saw a post on Tumblr with 259,463 notes that time. There's more now, probably. I thought, it's a pretty simple tee. Just a bit hand sewing and here you go. It didn't went smoothly in the beginning. I recommend to make the letters bigger! (You'll see when you're reading the DIY) I think that this DIY is easy to make, you don't have super sewing skills. Even though hand sewing is harder than sewing with the machine. That's just what I think. 

You also don't need a lot of products for this DIY. I bet everyone have this, just ask your mom or grandmother if they have some sewing stuff that you can use.


- Pencil
- Thread
- Tee
- Needle 
- Scissors

- Book
- Little box


Take your top. It can be white/black, you can use a white tee like me so the thread is black. Or you can use black for the tee and white for the letters. Or orther colors if you like. I got this tee from my local thriftshop.


I didn't put the box that I used in this picture, but you know what I mean. You have to put the box inside the tee.


Draw a heart on the tee, I putted it in the middle of the shirt. Just sketch, don't over do it or it will be hard to remove.  Stretch the tee a bit, you can use your legs. Just put it on the two sides of the book so it will be easier to draw.


Put some text in the middle of the tee. As you can see in the picture, you can see that I made a little mistake. It's too little, because when I was trying to sew the letters. It was too hard, so make your letter BIG. It will look better, and it's easier to sew.


Take your thread and put it in the needle! Be patient.


Make a little knot in the end, cut the rest behind it.


We're starting with hand sewing! Start on the top in the middle of the heart. I started on the left of the heart. Make a double knot in the inside of the tee, or it will be visible. You have to do it to make sure it won't fall out or something like that.

Just follow your sketch that you made.


Here's my heart! (The "What ever" text is way too little)


This is were I struggled when I sketched the letters too small. Just don't do it! Make it big and easier for yourself.

For the letters, I made the thread a little bit bigger so the words stand out. Just do the same as usual, but you fold the thread once.

Sewing letters.
Start on the top, left of the letter "W", and make a little knot. Then go down and you skip a really small part of the fabric and go on.

For "H", you first make those |  |. You start with the top left to the bottem, and then the same step again. After that, you sew the horizontal line.

Then you make the A, you always do the horizontal line in the end. You always go over the previous thread.

The "T", I first sew the |. The vertical line, and then the horizontal line.

I started with the "E"on the | vertical line. Then I did the top, bottom and middle.

The "V" is very simple you can go from the top to the bottom or the bottom to the top.

"R" it looks a little bit hard, but it's just like the heart when you go in a bow. It's the same but it's just smaller.

When you sew letters, also pull a bit on the thread so the letters won't be loose. If it's too loose, it will be ugly.

Now you're done!
