HAUL | Spontaneous Primark shopping!

When I go Primark shopping on a mission to buy certain clothes/stuff, it usually ends up disappointing and results in stuff I don't really need or really like. But when I don't really plan to go to Primark but just happens to past by with a friend, the best things are found which is really bad for my wallet.
So I didn't really plan to go to Primark, but I do needed those shoe liners for my Flyknits, so I decided to go there for a quick second.. Which as you probably can guess took a bit longer than a second.

First thing I found and fell head over heels is this marble/see-through striped cropped shirt. And yes, I did bought two of them.. Because I couldn't decide to have it in my normal size or a size up. I'm crazy like that. It was 8euros though, so it wasn't that bad of a decision. Next item I found was this blouse which reminds me of 'batik' and thought it would be cute for the summer with a white short or skirt. This was a bit pricey though for Primark, 14 euros. When I saw these heels I couldn't decide which to take. I have a wedding ceremony to attend to but still don't have the dress, so I thought white strappy heels are usually safe same goes for the black strappy heels, plus they're super cute! Each was 15euros. The last few items are just some basic necessities I thought I should have. The pink bag arm bracelet is for me to attempt to run outside and get some cardio outdoors. Hope it will help me.

What do you think of this Primark haul?

OOTD & HAUL | How I wear my flyknits

MANGO dress, Tally Weily bag, RayBan sunglasses, Nike flyknit lunar 2

Soo.. I bought some new NIKES and I really shouldn't but I was thinking about it the whole time while I was in the library 'studying'. I couldn't stop thinking about it, it was 20% off at Zalando. So just to get me back to work, I bought them.. And it totally was worth it! I can wear this for running, the gym and even on a daily basis when I'm running some errands. This is how I would style them when I'm just getting through the day, heading to the library again. I love how the simple and versatile this dress from Mango is. The other day I wore this with some heels and it instantly gives you a chic look while pairing it with these sneakers will give you a more casual look! 

What do you think of this outfit? How would you wear these sneakers?

Personal | Pretbord! for HEMA

As I've already said in a previous post. I got nominated for the HEMA design competition, I can win a sum of money and on top of that it can be produced! In order to win, I need votes! So what's my design about?

PRETBORD (in Dutch it means funplate)
A plate for kids to eat their meal with veggies in a fun and creative way.
The mother can slice up the ingredients and the child can create their own artwork. Because the child engages with the food, they will become familiar with it and will most likely eat the food sooner.

You can vote for me here:

The voting ends 13 July

Don't forget to confirm the vote on your mail!
Thank you so much and wish my luck!

OOTD | There's something about denim..

ZARA jean jacket, Bershka blouse, H&M black jeans, River Island heels

This is an outfit I wore a couple of days ago, so not really an outfit of the day. But it's an outfit nonetheless. I'm really into combining dark greyish jeans with blue jeans. So combining these H&M jeans I always wear with a quite old ZARA jean jacket is pretty much an uniform for me these days. (with the weather getting warmer, it's getting harder though) It's still lovely for the evenings.

Personal | competing in HEMAontwerpwedstrijd 2014

Hey guys, I thought I'd give you a quick look in what I've been up to lately. And I think it's pretty awesome! A few months back, I was pretty busy with a project for uni and I'm glad to say that it pretty much paid off because I did get a decent grade. But the project was also a competition held by a Dutch company HEMA. Their annual "HEMAontwerpwedtrijd" which in English would be HEMA design competition specially for Design-related schools. This year the theme was 'Cooking and dining'. So as I went to the event for the winner announcement, I didn't get to win the competition but I was shocked and happy that I got nominated for the 'publieksprijs', the price for the public, which I'm one of the 20 contestants out of 370 designed products. The winner for this part gets an award and a great sum of money! The winner must get the most votes for their design. The voting opens 16th of June. So mark that day in your agenda to vote! :) You can vote for someone else if you find his/her product more appealing.. But I doubt that, mines the best! haha joke, getting cocky there. 

I will give you a sneak peek of my design in this post and will be explaining it more and where you can vote in a future post.

ootd | Pineapple print trend

H&M crop top, Primark pineapple skirt, Nike Thea

You seem them everywhere at the moment.. Pineapple prints! Pineapples, watermelons, what next? Mangoes? When I saw this skirt at Primark for 12 euros yesterday, I knew that it was something I would wear regularly this summer. It's something easy to wear with a basic top and sneakers or wedges if you want to dress it up a little. Oh and I'm currently obsessed with coral and orange nail polishes, it adds that pop of colour on any outfit.

What do you think of pineapples?
