My American style winter boots

American winter boots (1)

Winter is officially here. December 21, the shortest day of the year and I must say that it is true. This morning I waited to see what time the sun would rise or better said what time it would be daylight, because there was actually no sign of the sun today. Nothing, nada. At least not here in my city. About 9:15 it was daylight and about 15:45 it was already time for sunset. Really the shortest day, but still enjoyable. In the afternoon I went to the city center because I heard of a final sale at a shoe store with great quality shoes. Continue reading “My American style winter boots”

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”

This month is going to be a very busy month for me and here on XX Fashion Diva. In this post I like to give you an update on what to expect for the next 4 weeks of July on the blog. If you are following this blog for a while now, you may know that I was in Jamaica last month to attend the Caribbean Fashion Week 2014 in Kingston. The past few weeks I did a few posts about my stay in Jamaica and the Fashion Week. All the posts about Jamaica so far are available in the category Jamaica 2014.

My first day in Kingston, Jamaica

20140611_182432

In my previous post I told you about how we tried to visit the beach on the first day, but that didn’t went as we thought it would. Well the day wasn’t a total loss. Although we were at the Half Way Tree bus terminal for almost 1,5 hours walking, searching, asking for directions and waiting for the bus without any luck, we did do something while already outside. We walked a little around Half Way Tree, visited the Pavilion Mall and then ended up at Sovereign Centre in Liguanea. Continue reading “My first day in Kingston, Jamaica”

My renewed love for Primark

In Europe most of us know and love Primark, especially for their low prices. It is the perfect store for fashionistas on a budget. Because I wasn’t the biggest fan of Primark at the beginning (See post “My first experiences with Primark”) I wasn’t very excited to find out that there was finally going to be a store in my city Almere in november 2012. And I most certainly didn’t plan to visit that store in the first week, let along the first day which was 12-12-2012. That would be hell with the massive crowd.
