Sporty Glam!

Dear readers,

Excuse me for the absence lately, but I have been caught up in some work-related projects.

Anyway, today's post covers Candice Swanepoels editorial in Elle Brazil. What do you think of this fierce editorial?

Love, Melissa

Cruisin' through Paris!

Dear readers,

Model Nadja Bender isn't afraid to work her way around a motorcycle as we can obviously see in the November issue of Vogue Paris. Surprisingly Nadja is showcasing fur and not leather as would be a logical thing if we consider the motorcycle.

What do you think of this editorial called "Lignes de Fuite" shot by photographer Glen Luchford and styled by Marie Chaix?

Love, Melissa

A deserted place...

Dear readers,

Proud to say that Dutch model Milou van Groesen is chosen as covergirl for Harper's Bazaar Korea's oktober issue. Not only is she on the cover, she also has a spread inside the magazine. I'm loving the scenery in the editorial...I would love to have a photoshoot like that myself one day...just for the fun of it! :)

Milou is photographed by Nagi Sakai and she's rocking the fall collection of Giorgio Armani!

What do you think of this photoshoot? Which photo is your favourite? Mine is the cover! Loving the outfit, the car and the little motel in the background.

Love, Melissa

Boyish editorial!

Dear readers,

And we have another Dutch model to be proud of, although this one is a little bit more famous as the last :) I'm of course referring to supermodel Doutzen Kroes. She's rocking it in the october issue of Vogue Paris and I'm totally digging it! She's seen wearing creations by Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Falke, Jil Sander and Jean Paul Galtier.

What need I say more about this editorial? Just have a look and be impressed! Then tell me which photo you like best? Although I have many favourite photos from this editorial, my vote goes to the first one! In this photo Doutzen reminds me a bit of Madonna in her earlier years, doesn't she?

Love, Melissa

ZARA Lookbook October 2012!

Dear readers,

ZARA keeps getting better and better, don't you agree? I just LOVE shopping at ZARA; you can find catwalk looks for an affordable price and with ZARA you're always on trend.
Have a peek at ZARA's lookbook of October 2012. What we see is velvet, leather, burgundy and the military style...trends we've seen on the catwalk during the presentations of the Fall/Winter collections 2012/2013 of the different brands, but also during the more recent collection presentations: the Spring/Summer 2013 collections of the different brands. My favourite items of this lookbook are the velvet blazer with golden buttons and the wintercoat seen in photo 2 (wool and leather?! Can things seriously get any better?).

What is your favourite item of this lookbook?

Love, Melissa

Off to Dubai!

Dear readers,

Today is the day! Our suitcases are packed, the house is left clean, Chester (my chinchilla) is at my parents house for the time we're away and we're both so excited to get to know another country! Yes, it is time for DUBAI! There was however a slight change in hotels. We are no longer staying at the Raffles Dubai, but at Auris Plaza Dubai. I'll make sure to upload my Dubai photos as soon as I get back.

Speak to you soon! Off we go!

Oh btw, did you know we are flying with the BIGGEST passenger airplane in the whole wide world? That's right: we're flying with Emirates Airbus A380 :D

See you later!

Love, Melissa

P.S. If you got tips for Dubai, please let me know!

My 27th birthday celebration!

Dear readers,

Yep, that's right: I celebrated my birthday twice! Why not, right?! :P
This time it was for my friends. I celebrated it in a restaurant in Amsterdam. The food was SO good! Afterwards I went to a a techno party organized by Amsterdam Dance Event. The main dj there was Chris Liebing. It was so awesome! Unfortunately though, it was so so hot in there (it was as if I was dancing in a sauna, so I'm sure I dropped some weight in there :P) that every picture I took resulted in a foggy shot. Bummer!

Hope you like the photos!

Oh, I forgot to tell you what I got as birthday gifts...hmm, you know what: I'll make a photo of all of them and contribute a post to it! So much easier I think!

Love, Melissa
