Conscious green fashion OOTD with a vintage blazer and captain hat

Lately I’ve been thinking about a lot of new art projects! I’ve got some really cool photography projects in mind and I’m also trying to paint & write more often. Of course that’s all really fun but that also means I might be focussing less on this blog…

Ideally I would do both. But I’m still being treated for Lyme’s Disease and I’ve also recently found out I’ve got a slight vitamin D deficiency. I haven’t really got enough energy for all the things I set my mind on unfortunately… Lately it feels as if I’m juggling too many balls in the air again and I notice my body resisting. What do you guys think?

On a lighter note: enjoy this OOTD! It’s vintage and green and conscious all the way! I’m flirting with masculine fashion a bit so that’s why I chose this pretty blazer…

knitwear dress boho OOTD for Winter

‘the age of red is over, the time of black has begun’

Maybe a little dramatic but it is true nonetheless. As I’m typing this I’m no longer a redhead… After 5 long year I thought it was time for a change!

I still really, really like the bright quirky red hair. Tori Amos galore! But I also thought it was becoming a little predictable and monotone. I could no longer identify with my red hair and, at the same time, was getting a little annoyed people predominately seemed to identify my by my red hair!

Something had to change! With my new hairstyle I also felt invigorated to try out new clothing combinations. For one, because this coupe is far more neutral, I can get away with a lot more colour combinations! Possible downside: wearing all black + makeup makes me looks like a 15 year old Goth. I’m going to be asked for my ID a lot more!

Want to check out the non-redhead me? I’ve already posted some pics on Insta!

Vegan Lunchroom Koffie Ende Koeck in AmsterdamYay, vegan food is becoming really popular in Amsterdam! Vegan lunchrooms are popping up everywhere in the Dutch capital. Koffie Ende Koeck, however, has been a pilar of the vegan food community from the very start. Way back when ‘vegan’ was still considered ‘extremist’, ‘incredibly alternative’ or downright ‘rabbitfood’, Maartje was already baking the best vegan pies, crumbles & cakes.

If you’re looking for an inspiring vegan lunchroom in Amsterdam, Koffie Ende Koeck should definitely be on your list!

OOTD - Winter WonderLand-8

A walk through the somewhat snowy Flevopark

Night temperatures have been steadily below zero these last few days. Whenever this happens most Dutchies typically go into this hysterical “ice-skating craze”. Generally, all common sense is abandoned as people are hoping for the chance to skate a 200 Kilometer tour (see: elfstedentocht). Previously endured afflictions include but are not limited to: amputated toes & frozen eyeballs.

Ehm, I think I’ll just stick to a walk in the lovely Flevopark this Winter…

OOTD Something Witchy with Vintage Black Velvet bodycon dress with Golden Embroidery

While hiking through the wonderful forest & dunes of Terschelling with my grandparents and sister I couldn’t resist a little witchy OOTD shoot. It was awfully windy during the Christmas holidays but luckily the trees provided us with enough cover. The landscape of Terschelling really is incredibly beautiful and versatile <3

Lately I’ve been quite inspired to do more nature photography again… Naturally, I took my camera with me wherever I went! Halfway through this family walk we also encountered some unexpected friends: A herd of Icelandic Horses!

Enjoy the pics!

New Year Resolution for a Happy Green Hippie Life

What small changes can you make to live your life a little more green & conscious? Maybe this New Years Resolutions post can give you some inspiration!

Normally I’m not really into New Years Resolutions. I don’t have to lose 10 kilos or set up a rigorous sport schedule. I’m pretty content with my life as it is. Beside, I don’t need a specific date to change the things I do want to change about myself… I do that year ‘round!

But maybe I can work a little green-conscious-hippie-vibes into this New Year Resolutions post. I’m listing a few small points below that will not only make my life more awesome, but also benefit our planet!

Some of the stuff I’m talking about may seem like a lot of work, and -to be honest- that’s why I’ve been putting them off for far too long! Other points are things I enjoy doing, but sometimes don’t take enough time for when life get’s a little hectic.

This post is therefor also a little reminder to make more time for doing the things we enjoy most! 

Are your happy green hippie New Years Resolutions in the list? Check it out below!

ootd-winter-blues-10

After celebrating my 25th birthday last Wednesday I was completely exhausted and a tad bit surprised by a leftover flu virus. I wanted nothing more but to snuggle up in bed, watch LOTR & experiment to see if people are also able to hibernate ;)

However, the Holidays are coming up so it’s no time for Winter Blues! I need to get the lasts gifts for my family sorted and prep for the journey ahead. Traveling to a (somewhat) distant island with two bunnies, an OOTD worthy wardrobe selection & Christmas gifts is no small matter!

Hope you’re all going to have a wonderful time this Christmas <3
