Investment Piece | The Grand Shopping Tote

Talking about investments.. This piece is literally an investment!

I had to wait and look for it in different stores and countries for several months – actually years – to finally, finally, have it in my possession! A classy and timeless piece.. The Chanel Grand Shopping Tote! (Also known as the GST.)



This bag is made out of black Caviar leather with golden chains and zippers. Caviar leather, also known as grained calfskin leather will hold its shape after daily use and scratches or damages will not show up easily. Which also makes it usable to wear everyday and for many years.








The golden chain on the bag is the “Classic Chanel Chain Leather”. The golden color of the chain makes the bag more chique and warm. 

And rumor has it that Chanel will not producing the GST anymore.. Also, every year Chanel is increasing their prices, so if you really want one of these babies you’d better be hurry up!

A timeless bag with timeless colors. Classy and Fabulous indeed!

Hair Donation

After being involved with different kind of charity I read into stories about people (male and female) and children who had have diseases which caused hair loss. Also I know some women in my personal life who had have cancer and survived, but they also had suffered from hair loss and had to spend much money for wigs, because insurance (here in the Netherlands at least) does not cover for all of it. 

As a woman I feel that my hair is a part of my beauty and how my hair shows in what kind of a mood I am, like messy, pony tail, curls, straight etcetera etcetera. Imagine that you have to cut all of your hair off to make room for a wig. Hearing about these stories made me realize that I do not must take my hair for granted. Sickness overwhelmed them and they had no choice but to accept the consequences of hair loss (and all other horrible side effects).

My hair is thick, frizzy and it grows fast and I have to take time to get a nice hairdo everyday which will also last for the whole day. 

All the above were reasons for me to let my hair grow for another more centimeters and cut it off for donation. 

I wanted to – after I cut my hair – that my hair still would be a length to do nice things with, like curling or put up in a pony tail. So, after I had cut it off.. See the result below after my hair being 22 centimeters shorter 🙂

Do you also considered to make a donation? I hope I inspired you and you will also make this choice or maybe at least think about it. I think it is a nice gesture to help people in need.

I can not tell for how this works in other countries, but in The Netherlands are some hair dressers who will cut your hair for free if it is meant for donation. 

I choose to send my hair to and they will take care of my hair and make a wig of it. You can visit the website for more information or send an e-mail to

Casual Chic

Casual sneakers and a chic coat are the perfect match, if you’re asking me. In this cold Autumn weather I need a coat to keep me warm and comfortable shoes to wander around and explore the streets of Amsterdam.

In this wool and classy Ted Baker long wool wrap coat combined with my Chanel baskets sneakers I feel feminine and cool at the same time. Added with a touch of chocolate brown accessories, which makes my fashionable outfit casual chic.

I chose for a safe black color when it comes to my Ted coat and Chanel sneakers. I know I will not wear a bright color as much as black or neutrals. When buying investment pieces, I go for safe.

To make my outfit complete I took my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM Monogram shopper out for the day with my matching brown Louis Vuitton Monogram scarf for the cold Fall weather. What I like the most about my bag is that Louis Vuitton is offering the service to initialize your bag, which obviously makes it more personal and unique and gives the casual outfit a touch of classiness.

These black suede and leather Chanel are my favorite sneakers. Of course, because they are Chanel and also because of the classic tweed material which are the same tweed as from the famous Chanel Black Jacket.

Definitely Casual & Chic!

Investment Pieces | The Hobo Bag

Ready – steady –  go? With the Hobo bag you can.
It is easy to carry around and easy to put all of your junk in.
My favorite Hobo is the Too hot too handle Hobo from the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection.


Not only can you wear this bag with a casual outfit, but it also matches perfectly with a formal outfit or an outfit with heels. I was looking for the perfect Hobo bag for a long time, but I never found the right one. They either were too big or too small, or faux leather. That is why I specific chose this Marc by Marc Jacobs Hobo because of its outstanding leather quality (100% cow leather) and its perfect size. The subtle golden emblem finishes its with elegance.



Classic and timeless is what this bag is. My first investment black bag and it was worth every penny. 🙂

From Paris with Love

When I am in Paris there are always many things to do and see. I never get bored here.
I was only here for a weekend, but I got to see a lot of beautiful places. 

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower described in two words; A beautiful and magical place. It is a very special place to go with your beloved one, although it is very crowded, you still get caught up in the moment. This really is a must see in Paris.

Champs Elysees

The biggest street in Paris to shop, have delicious food and drinks and watch street entertainment. Or of course, just to have a walk and enjoy the beautiful view of this authentic street.

 Pont Neuf

Pont neuf is between the Louvre museum and Cathedral Notre Dame. You can also find the love locks bridge in this area, but most of the locks are removed. Also around this pont you can find a lot of restaurants and bars and it is a beautiful place to take pictures.

How To | Clean your brushes

When it comes to beauty, you do not only have to make sure your skin is clean but also your supplies. If you don’t your skin may get irritated or you can get a rash. There are many ways to clean make up brushes and in this case the cheapest way is the best way! I use dish soap from a Dutch brand, Dreft, which you can find in the supermarket for only €1-€2.


I have different brushes from different brands. Some of them have synthetic and others are from real hair. The type of hair does not matter when it comes to cleaning them, but brushes that have real hair will stay in better condition for a long time. I use Zoeva and MAC cosmetic brushes. 


I used to use the MAC brush cleanser (€11), which is a very good cleanser and an easy and fast way to clean your brushes, but more expensive than dish soap. Also, if you use the MAC brush cleaner your brushes will be dried up in a couple of minutes. With the dish soap it can take a couple of hours before they are dry and ready to use. 

Not convinced that dish soap is the best way? Let me show you. 

You put a little bit of Dreft on your sink, make the hairs (only the hairs) of the brushes moist.


Mix the brush with the drops of Dreft.




And done!

Citytrip: Nice and Monaco

Last month I went to the beautiful French Cote D’azur, Nice and Monaco. I have seen so many beautiful things and places in Nice. My trip lasted for three days, which is actually enough to spend for a citytrip. Let me take you into my journey.

My hotel was at the Boulevard Promenade des Anglais, which is most likely in the centre of Nice. There are plenty of restaurants and it is a walking distance to the beautiful blue sea. At the moment I stayed in Nice it was too cold for me to swim, but I did enjoy the view.


As we walked from the hotel to the centre of Nice we walked through these beautiful streets which were build with these old and classic houses and big trees. Just like the fancy streets from Paris. When we walked like ten minutes, we walked into in the centre where all these terraces, shops and monuments were. Also the Cathedral Notre Dame of Nice.


The second day of my trip I went to Monaco. If you take the train from Nice it only takes 20 minutes to Monaco. So if you’re ever in Nice I really recommend you to travel to Monaco! It’s really worth it. When I walked outside from the station and looked down, was this the first thing I saw. An amazing view to the Port of Monaco. 


Walking to the centre/port of Monaco seemed more nearby when I looked down from the station haha. But you know, it is worth the walk!


Big streets. Artistic buildings. 


And then finally, I saw what i came for. Casino Monte Carlo. Hotel de Paris and many many of fancy cars. The place was crowded! The casino looks as even beautiful on the inside as the outside, but I was not allowed to make pictures inside the building. So if you’re curious, go see for yourselves!


It was the perfect weekend in Nice and Monaco. A great place to explore, beautiful views, shops and monument.  A definitely must-see!
