Huishoudbeurs 2018: Pasar Colours Festival – Surinamese Day

Just like I mentioned in my previous post about the Huishoudbeurs, my third visit was all about the Pasar Colours Festival, because it was all about Surinamese entertainment that day. Unfortunately, I arrived later than planned, because I had to finnish the blogpost about the day before which took longer than I thought. But even though I missed half of the entertainment, I still had a great time at Pasar Colours Festival – Surinamese Day.

Huishoudbeurs 2018: Fashion & Beauty

My second visit to the Huishoudbeurs 2018 was yesterday on Wednesday, which was also the start of the Negen Maanden Beurs (Nine Months Fair), a fair that, as the name may suggest, that is all about baby stuff. Since this fair has nothing to do with my personal interests yet, it wasn’t the reason for me to go to Huishoudbeurs that day, but I did visit it for a second just to see what was going on there. My visit to the Huishoudbeurs that day was about checking out the Fashion & Beauty section. Continue reading “Huishoudbeurs 2018: Fashion & Beauty”

Huishoudbeurs 2018: Food & Drinks and Tahitian dancers

This year I am visiting the Huishoudbeurs several days and reporting about what I’ve done each visit. Because the fair is so big, my plan is to visit different sections each day and share with you what I’ve seen, done and bought each time I went . Yesterday was my first day at the Huishoudbeurs 2018, but unfortunately I arrived later than I thought, so I decided I to start with my favourite section of the fair: Food & Drinks.  Continue reading “Huishoudbeurs 2018: Food & Drinks and Tahitian dancers”

Last Thursday I went to the Huishoudbeurs (Household Fair) in Amsterdam with a friend. My oh my, we had so much fun. For the first time I decided to try out a few thighs at the fair for myself. Before I share this fantastic day with you, I’d like to take you back with me to the highlights of the Huishoudbeurs from last year. Because I didn’t get to it then, I figured why not now.

Dressed for a Spring Wedding in Amsterdam

Spring Wedding Intro

Sunshine, singing birds, fresh young leaves and flowers. It can mean only one thing: Spring time! Even though it is officially spring for a month now, I for one am still waiting for the real warm spring days to arrive. Although, I may not complain, because the first true spring day already made her entrance on April 10, here in the Netherlands. This day was proclaimed “Skirt Day”, which basically means that it is the first day of spring when suddenly a lot of ladies are wearing a skirt with bare legs underneath. But Skirt Day wasn’t the only thing happening, as I had a Spring Wedding to attend on that same Sunny Friday of April. Continue reading “Dressed for a Spring Wedding in Amsterdam”

Successful casting call for the Caribbean Fashion Show

Casting Call CFS (5)

In my special post of ten days ago I was talking about the model casting call of Caribbean Fashion Spot for the upcoming Caribbean Fashion Show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam. This casting day was held on Saturday, April 4 at South East in Amsterdam Southeast and was very successful, much to our content. Over 70 models came to our casting call, some with lots of runway experience, some with experience in photoshoots and add campaigns, some with a combination of everything and some with no modelling experience at all, but a very good motivation. All candidates that are worth to be considered for the job. Continue reading “Successful casting call for the Caribbean Fashion Show”

MBFWA Outfit Day 2: Snow-White and Navy Blue

Outfit Day 2 collage

For day two of MBFWA I wanted to wear something much more different from day 1 and went with a complete opposite look. This day I wanted to keep it sweet and girly and choose to wear a dress instead of pants. As I was also visiting the Zalando 10 Days Downtown Event called ‘Fashion & Ballet’ at the Koepelkerk, Renaissance Hotel, I picked out a dress that to me matched the feeling of ballet. Since it had snowed that day, I also kinda wanted to blend in with the white color on the streets. So I ended up wearing my snow-white flared skirt dress.
