New album Mumford and Sons



Okay, I know this doesn't really have something to do with fashion, but it's my blog and I can post whatever I like, or in this case love! Mumford and Sons' first album Sigh No More is perfect for me, I listened to it so many times, and I'm in love with it. It was released a long time ago, and finally they released their second album, Babel, and I'm sooo excited! I downloaded it right away (illegally, but I can't help that I don't have money right now haha), and I'm listening to it right now. This music is the kind that you can listen to everywhere, on the bus or on the bike, in your bed, just in your room, anywhere. The lead singers' voice is heaven, and their lyrics are amazing. Need I say more?
If you've never listened to their music, seriously, you're missing out! It may be not everyone's taste, but if you're a bit into the alternative kind of music, you'll love this. Just listening to this album makes me so happy :) Some favourites of mine of the previous album are After the Storm, Little Lion Man, The Cave and Awake my Soul.

Love: fashion illustrations by Inslee



Today, I stumbled upon these beautiful fashion illustrations. They are made by Inslee, and wow, she has talent for sure! In my opinion, her work is stunning, I can't get enough of it. I draw too, but I can only wish I can be as good as this one day :)
blonde + brunette (print)

The Final Look (print)
Shades (print)
Little White Dress 2 (print)




My favourites are the third, fourth and last picture for sure. What I really want to do right now is print all of these out and just hang them up all over my room.

Outfit: winter feelings

So here I am, writing my first outfit post! The weather here is so unpredictable, I hate it. In the morning, it's dull and dark outside with rain falling out of the air, and now, in the afternoon, the sun is shining. Oh how I love Holland! 
I wore a vest from Bershka I bought almost a year ago today, but it's been in the back of my closet ever since I bought it, I believe. I don't really know why I don't wear it that often, because I really like it! 
The bracelets I'm wearing are standard, I put those on almost every day. On both wrists I have one bracelet that I made myself, and the rest are kind of boho-like beaded bracelets. I still have my 'Appelpop' bracelet on, it's from a Dutch festival, and I have a 'stay strong' bracelet from Demi Lovato (i love her, such an inspiration). Also, check out the nailart I did a few days ago! :)

New in: Biker boots



So here they are in real life :) I squealed when I saw them! Seriously, I've wanted biker boots with studs for so long, and here they finally are. I'm so in love with them that I don't even care that they're not from real leather (shh don't tell anyone), they are perfect to me.




They go with so many outfit, I'm really not regretting these! I played a bit with the colouring in these pictures, haha, trust me, they are really black :) 

I do really want to post outfit pictures soon, but I don't really want to post low quality pictures... I have a simple Sony Snapshot camera, and it works fine, but not for outfit pictures. I don't know, should I?

Half-moon mani

When I say I'm a big fan of nail polish, I mean huge. I used to own a nail blog, where I reviewed new and old colours, and posted pictures of nail art I did. I own over 200 polishes, I haven't counted them in a long time... So I have almost every colour you can imagine (including the ugly ones!). I stopped with that blog now, I really don't have the time anymore to paint my nails every two or three days, keep them in perfect shape (because of my work), and take pictures everytime when the sun is out for a bit. 


Here's something cute I did a few days ago; gold half-moons! I really love pastel colours, and I think gold goes really well with pastels. I know this manicure is not perfect, I haven't perfected it like I usually always did. It's bit sloppy, but well, it's really cute, so this time I don't care!

Do you like this simple nail art? Would you like me to post more pictures of my nails sometimes?

Lois
