Thanks to Press Only, yesterday I visited the modefabriek. I could not resist to buy something of the beautiful Eva, owner of webshop Maison Miau. She sells Wildfox, Motel and Club Manhattan, and there's still some sale at her webshop as we speak! I love the bag with her logo, but what's inside the bag I will keep a secret, but will show you soon.

I met Maudy, the Dutch designer of Legguns. This girl knows how to design a legging! For sale at her website and at different shops. Will definitely purchase one of those someday!

Who think bikes are not fashionable; think again! Van Heesch Design proves you wrong. Remember the rose gold trend? Well how about a bike in rose gold? Van Heesch Design designed a bike of copper (which is my favourite) and also of brass. When you are on a budget it is possible to buy a designed bell and/ or bike lock, which will fashionably update your bike instantly.

Last week at Fashion week, the best show in my opinion was of my friend Bas Kosters. His inspiration for his show was LOVE. It was definitely not a stroll of models in outfits, but it was a SHOW. The music fitted, the slow-dancing models fitted, the marrying couple Bas and his blow-up heart fitted, and last but not least the delicious cake in the same patterns of the collection fitted. Well done. It made me smile. At modefabriek I had a chance to see the collection up-close and it made me smile again.

Lastly I met the young talented Belgium designer Glenn Martens. Although my heart mostly belongs to patterns this guy made my heart jump for joy for basic colours and different shapes. Look at his beautiful website to see his full collection.

Pirate on Gili

Shirt and necklace: Zara
Shorts: H&M
Hat: Versace for H&M
Bikini: Ripcurl
Sunglasses: Rayban
Flip-flops: Havaianas 

It has been a long time since I did some blogging, and the reason is my holiday on Bali. The above pictures are taken on Gili Trawangan, a real heaven on earth. My outfit is a bit like a pirate with the skull cut-out t-shirt and skeleton-necklace, like I would conquer the island and would stay there forever; drinking coconut milk and eating the local perfect banana pancakes. Oh, how I wish I could stay on Gili and Bali forever and do that! 
Happy Holidays everyone!
