Travel Vlogs: Get it to the Greek!

Last year Summer I’ve been to a few places for the first time. Greece was one of them. Although it wasn’t mainland Greece, I went to the island of Rhodes, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful ones, with a rich culture and history. It was a mini family vacation with my mother and sister, of which my mom and I were there for a few days longer. Of course I had to film some nice travel footage for my vlog viewers, which is now uploaded on my YouTube channel. Continue reading “Travel Vlogs: Get it to the Greek!”

Travel Vlogs: My solo trip to Mallorca

October is Vlogtober! That is what I told myself on the first day of this month, not knowing that vlogtober was already a trending hashtag on the gram. For me it doesn’t mean that I am going to vlog and upload a video everyday, but that I am going to pop my vlogs of the past year online one by one during this month. My goal is to upload everything before October ends.

Tips for packing effectively for your summer holiday

Departure (1)

This is a post I wanted to do for a long time, ever since I went to Jamaica last June. Because I had one suitcase and barely enough room in my carry on bag, I wanted to put all the space I had to good use. Past experiences thought me that I never wear all the clothing I take with me on holiday, sometimes not even all the shoes. The reason for this is because I just throw in clothing, shoes, and bags I think I might all wear during my holiday, but in the end I never do. And I know I am not the only one that had to deal with this issue. Continue reading “Tips for packing effectively for your summer holiday”

Downtown Kingston is not downtown Manhattan

20140616_171253

One of the things I really wanted to do while in Kingston, Jamaica was visiting downtown Kingston. From day one the locals told me that it wasn’t what I may picture in my head. “Downtown Kingston is not like downtown Manhattan where you can walk down the street in your high heels with your designer purse”, is what I was told by the local we were staying at. “It’s rough”. No matter how rough it might be, I am a Caribbean girl also, so how much more rough can it be than downtown Paramaribo, Suriname I thought. Before my time in Kingston was up, I wanted to visit downtown Kingston and see it for myself. So on my last day in Kingston I did. Continue reading “Downtown Kingston is not downtown Manhattan”

I Love SU fashion line at Dresscode in Paramaribo

IMG-20140205-02198

The I love.. shirts are a fashion phenomenon and nowadays has become an integral part of casual street wear around the world. Most of you know the many I <3.. shirts of different cities like A’DAM, Berlin, London, Paris, Milan, Roma, Barcelona, Stockholm, NY, LA, Miami, Montreal, Tokyo and so on. In Suriname, where I’m from, there is the I Love SU fashion line and merchandise. While I’m not here to explain to you the history and demographics of Suriname, I can tell you that the population is not even close to one million citizens. Most people live in the capital city Paramaribo, and when there is talk about life in Suriname or going to Suriname it usually is about Paramaribo, but in general people speak of Su (short for Suriname). It is not like, for example, the United States or Spain (because of the big cities), that there is a I Love.. clothing line for almost every city. No, in small populated Suriname, like I said, they speak of Su. That is basically the history behind the choice of the name I Love SU.
