Little Sunday Catchup


Hope you're all well?

These past couple of weeks have been a bit chocka. I've had people visiting most weekends which has been rather nice; it's cool to show people from home where you live in your new little life, where you eat, where you drink. You feel almost proud of your new city and want to show it off; it isn't all green and red in Amsterdam contrary to popular belief.

I've got some other news. I have a new job, which is a huge relief. My internship here is due to end at the end of August, and the perfect job came up three weeks ago. Otherwise I would have been flying back on a KLM City Hopper to Liverpool, which wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, but it would also mean not living in Amsterdam anymore and not working where I work.

So the next few days for me consists of trawling Craigslist and Amsterdam Estate Agents to try and find myself a new abode, preferably in De Pijp or Jordaan. I'm not sure if you've looked for somewhere to live in Amsterdam before, but believe me, it aint easy. And it sure as hell aint cheap.

I'll probably have a few tears in my eyes when I have to hand the keys over to my apartment. It's so beautiful - I'll really miss it.

On a lighter note, my parents are here for the next few days, and they've brought my gorgeous little girlies to come and see me.

I'm sure you've seen them all before, but if not, here they are again. Lola on the left, Coco on the right.

Supreme 2011 FA/HO

My picks from the look book.

You pretty much couldn't get more Supreme than that last image.

Smart though.

Just seen that this has been posted:

Pretty much a no-frills video; nice music, super simple mellow vibe.


Dave White Video Interview - WeAreHQ

I've been a big fan of Dave White for a long time; it's hugely inspiring that he's so big in the game and the fact that he's from Liverpool just tops it off completely. I've got to know him over twitter, and he's a super nice guy - next time I'm back in Liverpool we're hopefully going to get an interview sorted out.

Enjoy the video.

Happy Monday guys.

Stussy x MadeMe

So the Fall/Winter 2011 images of the Stussy x MadeMe collection were posted last week; what do you all think of them?

I saved these images to my desktop last week and totally forgot to blog about them.

Out of the collection, this sweater was my favourite item.

Cropped jumpers are no good for me; y'all know I've got thick thighs.

I'd quite like to have a little look at this tee though, it's pretty cute, and I kinda dig grey tees. 
It probably helps looking like this girl though. 


Don't Believe the Hype(rfuse)

I got a pair of Air Max 90 Hyperfuse today. Never did I think I'd see the day that I'd buy Air Max 90s, but it turns out that these shoes are actually beautiful.

Super happy with them.

8 Hours in Brooklyn

Really beautiful video to watch on a calm Sunday evening.

Black and White is Back

My uniform of 2010 is back; white oversized combed cotton tee and black skinny jeans is my outfit for the day.

I've got these shoes on I bought a few weeks back from H&M; I'm still undecided if I'm going to keep them on all day but heels surely do seem to elongate my cankles.

My hair is in a bit of a slump at the moment - I dyed auburn over my ombre, but it's already fading at the ends. The cut is none-existant and the ends are split from blow-drying the sh't out of it. I've been using a serum but the smell is kinda sickly; it reminds me of the smell of the cranberry powder sachets girls have to mix with water when they have a water infection.

Jeans - Acne
Necklace - Ironic Fashion (the store is on hiatus at the moment; too much other stuff going on)

Otis - Jay-Z and Kanye West

What you sayin about this?

I'm into it, but the balance between the relationship of music and the video is a little off for me; a little disconnected.

It's nice to see them having fun though.

Happy Friday peeps.

Anybody else on it?

Add me as a friend!

I'm also part of the Blogger network...If any of you girls on this picture happen to read this hit me up!

Anastasia of Beverley Hills

I'm quite skeptical about PR emails; you all know the gist, no "Hello," a copied and pasted press release, a completely generic "I like your blog and feel you fit the company" and THAT FREAKING DESIGNER UMBRELLA COMPANY THAT EMAIL ME EVERY MONTH ASKING ME TO WRITE ABOUT THEIR UMBRELLAS.

Seriously, designer umbrellas? I buy €3 brollies from the tourist shops along the Kalverstaat.

Anyway, last week I got a rather lovely email from Anastasia of Beverley Hills, telling me about their company and new products they are releasing.

One of the products they specifically mentioned was the Beauty Express Brow Kit.

Brow. Kit.

Boom; attention grabbed.

I kind of live by the rule, love me, love my eyebrows.

I visited their site, and it turns out, they actually specialize in eyebrows; Anastasia does the brows of Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox. Eyebrows are what they're known for. Hello match made in heaven.

On their website, they have 33 products specifically for eyebrows.

Thirty. Three.

I'll be getting the Brow Kit, which I'm super excited to try. I usually use a dark pencil, or a brown eyeshadow, so it'll be nice to try something a bit more fun, and something I can experiment with.

Check out their website and have a look at the extensive range of beauty products and make up they have on offer.

I'll definitely be doing a review on this, when I get the product. Have any of you tried this before? Any tips on application?


Frances Bean by Hedi Slimane

How much has Frances Bean grown up?

Do you remember the awkward photo shoot for Elle magazine she did when she must have been like, 14, wearing her Dad's pyjamas?

I am seriously overwhelmed with the beauty of these photos.

I can't work out who she looks like more; Kurt or Courtney.

Not that I don't love my Dad, but at the end of the day, her Dad is Kurt Cobain.

Check. Mate.




I have been reading To Kill A Mockingbird.
I have been visiting the Artis Zoo.
and, I have been buying this lovely feathery Zara blouse
Good times.
