I am back with another series of “I take my own pictures”. It was born in summer of 2016 when I was extremely bored. I feel in this age of fast life/ fast everything nobody has the time to get bored anymore. Sometimes you have to find the time to get to this point and something will surface. It was a while ago that I got into this thing of self photography. Mostly because I had just started blogging and didn’t have anyone to take my pictures. I am no expert, but I go with the feeling of how and what I feel. So of course I am nervous to go public with them.
Let me know what you think!

We are dreaming about spring. Last few weeks we have been busy collecting our spring/summer favourites. With new season comes the new clothes… However sometimes it doesn’t have to be. Well especially around the spring. It’s a transition weather and it’s super confusing. The weather gods play all the weird combinations as possible like rain all day, rain no rain, sunshine rain. So the best way to deal with this transition weather is to layer! Add when you want, remove when you need.
I have always liked crop tops for layering purpose. So if you want to win the newest of this seasons trend then start wearing your crop tops and bralette over dresses and shirts. Probably like us, some of you might have been hoarding on to this teeny tiny creatures for the hope of summer… it’s time to get them layering.

First of all, those of you who know me will be a bit surprised to see me in all black. I am not really a “All black everything” kind of person. So for some this comes easily. Like I hear almost everyday here in Holland… I love wearing black, black is my colour. What’s surprising is when I see young teenagers say “I only wear all black”. Seriously, what happened to those days when you could commit any fashion blunders and blame it on “Oh I was young”. Isn’t this the time to experiment, be bold and refine your style.
My personal style has been through a lot of different phases. Now that I think of it, I try to replicate my emotions into my style. So I had my days of feeling rebellious and fierce too.
So coming back to all black everything. It’s not that I don’t like the colour black it’s just that I love other colours a lot too. I don’t see black as safe colour, I see it more classic and special! So today I am showing you guys a little version of black outfit for a day/night out. I would still keep things interesting… like layering on black & black, different tones and texture.

Good morning lovers!
Are we still on the same page? How often have you hear girls say this “I don’t want to look like a girl”. Well, for some reason I hear it a lot around me which makes me forget I am a girl. Haha.. just kidding. Yes, I still love my pinstripe men’s shirt and jeans. However, I still like getting dressed like a girl for special occasion and still feel like me. I hear this so often around me that girls don’t want to look like a girl but what does that even mean? Here is the fact. No matter how tomboyish your style is you would still look like a girl!
Hey don’t get me wrong, I am still Man Repeller and shit. But I miss getting dressed up and feeling like the only girl in the world!

We found the most controversial dress ever and we love it! It’s a slightly long coat but short enough for a perfect dress. What is not to love about this dress. Well for some, sexy doesn’t have to be body hugging. I want to be in a dress that makes me feel sensual without actually sucking the life without of me.
This year has been crazy. Summer decided to come uninvited for Autumn. And we seriously think Autumn is mad. But hey, who cares. We are loving it. So if you going on date night with your sweetheart we want to make sure you feel cool like cucumber. This is dress is effortless and hassle free. So put on your dress and pick your best heels.
This week again going to be nice and warm, hope everyone gets the chance to enjoy the last days of summer!

I shot some pictures of myself and this is what they look like.Are you thinking why do I do what I do? Don’t get me wrong, It’s great to have a person to follow you around while you pose. However, I really do enjoy posing for myself too. It’s much more challenging to shoot self portraits and stills of your self. It’s like a run between behind the camera to the front of the lens. “Damn Daniel”, I need to get that camera remote to make my life easier.
So I love spending my days off on this kind of things. It let’s my creative juices running. I like to create stories from my pictures and give a little bit of reality with it. I am not going to lie, this is a long and frustrating process. But you learn a lot from your mistakes. I believe practice and interest can make anything happen. So what are you waiting for, pick up that camera and get clicking. Oh, I watched tons of youtube video on self photography so you might want to do that 😉

So far I have used a good camera to take pictures for my blog. I personally believe that having a good camera is a long term investment. Well, here comes the funny store. The last time I had scheduled time for blog pictures, I forgot to take my camera with me. Haha… The most important thing and only thing to bring accept for myself. Well, so we decided to put our iPhone photography skills to use and ended up creating these. Which btw I love so much!
So here you go:
1) Do not use flash for outdoor and day shooting.
2) Did you know that you can put your iPhone on HDR mood and shoot high quality pictures.
3) Set the focus on the main object. This is very important as you want you to be the centre of the image and everything else as a background. So tap on the phone screen yo find your focus and then shoot.
4) Use shadows in your pictures. I love shadows, I believe they add drama to the pictures.
5) Last but not least. If you don’t have a good camera then you have to play by one simple rule: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. So keep your backgrounds simple. Doesn’t matter if your images look empty. It draws more attention to you and what you wearing.
Have a fabulous week everyone. We are so excited about this weeks beach weather. Woohoo!

Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.
Vulnerability is the scary thing. It’s to be able to share yourself and make yourself vulnerable and to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength. It was a year ago that I went on this journey of blogging. Honestly, it took about 6 months before I showed my blog to public. I talked about it a lot to people but it took a lot of courage to be able to finally say “Here I am”. My intention when I started this blog was to be real and build connect with you all.
It’s a year and I am not leaving. So let me know if you think their is anything I can add or do more to keep you going on this journey with me.

Sneakers are everywhere. Once upon a time wearing sneakers with dress was considered cool. I feel we have over played our obsession for Adidas Stan Smith and Nike Air force 1 to another level. I use to be super excited about styling a unusual combination with my Nike Air force 1. But some how I don’t feel the same. It’s more like getting over your crush and wanting to fall in love all over again. New love is the best love. You feel excited, nervous and look forward to new adventures. Well all this came true when I found my new love. Loafers. Yes, Pink Loafers! Thank you for reminding me what butterflies feel like. I am truly excited and look forward to our adventures together.
I am in love with this shoe. They are comfortable as sneakers, but I find them bit more badass and bold. They mean everything to me. Hope you guys find your true love.
