Summer brings unexpected plans, dinner dates, park chills and festival time. I have always been a big fan of tea dresses and maxi. However this season I am very much into going out tops and blouses. Summer in Amsterdam doesn’t necessarily mean all-time sunshine. Some days you just have to put on your jeans so you don’t freeze your ass. If this is the case than I would let the top be crazy floral or summery as hell! I mean 5 years ago If you asked me to take a light jacket for summer evening I would be like “Shut Up!” But over the years dutch weather has thought me the importace of summer light jacket!

New year. New goal!
This April I will be running the Berlin half marathon! Here I said it and now it’s official. Jeez now there is no backing up.
Living in India I wasn’t a much of runner. I did some treadmill running every now and then. It was moving to Holland that got into running. About 4 years ago running 5k was a mental and physical challenge. And I must say I have come far from that. Now a sunday runs are 10 to 12k and I run at least 3 to 4 times a week. However, sometimes it’s difficult to keep with the schedule due to work.
I have never done anything like this… so I am excited and nervous at the same time. I have done some reading on this matter. Things like Fartleck, Tempo run, hills and interval runs are all new to me. I will share this journey with you. However if you guys would like to know anything specific then ask and I will share.
A big part of training for marathon is also what you wear. Some people tend to ignore this essential. But wearing the right gear can boost your performance and also keep you injury free. Recently I have tried and tested this new brand called doSport Live. The product looks amazing and delivers in all other aspects. For shoes you need something that can take on the long runs and as well outdoor conditions. I have been running on Nike Vemero for almost half a year and I absolutely love them. I will not getting into more details because I have tried a lot of different running shoes and everyones needs are different, so I will come back with a new post just for shoes and gear.
Wish me luck!
Baby It’s cold outside…
It’s only November and I am already freezing my ass. So what do you do to save your cute butt from freezing? Layer the hell out! The trick is to create a solid base and then work on it. Keeping your first 2 layers body fitted and it will take you far away.
Don’t we all want to look like we just walked out of a show in Paris? Well, probably not. I just feel really cool layering 😉
Keep it warm lovelies!

Good Morning lovelies,
Today I am going to share my big secret to everyone. So are you a gym addict and constantly struggling to find the right bag that takes you from gym to work or work to gym? Well I was so tired of worrying every morning about how to pack my stuff for the day. And the most annoying bit of packing routine was where do I put my gym shoes and in what. Somedays I even ended up carrying two bags which totally ruined my outfit.
I am so happy with my GymTote now I don’t have to worry no more. This bag looks so chic and compliments all my outfits. It literally can carry everyhting from gym clothes, gym shoes, water bottle, laptop and even your lunch box.
PS: They have not forgotten men either. So go check it out!

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!

Hope everyone had a good week. Well, here in Holland the summer has just started. We had such an incredible week. Summer brings lots of colours and good vibes all around us and not to forget even in our wardrobe. Soon the days will get shorter and colder and sooner we will not want to wear our colourful flowery clothes. Unless, you are Iris Apfel. Btw it’s a good thing to be her.
So here is the trick to transition dressing. Especially, If you have such crazy in between weather like Holland. Remember this “It’s never too early to buy sweaters”. In between weather will bring unexpected showers and chill in the air. So be prepared. One minute it will look all sunny and next thing you know it starts pouring outside. So keep things colourful and summery with touch of comfort. I am so in love with my pink skirt. It’s a perfect length for all weather and a very versatile piece to style. Adding a chunky or fluffy sweater will give you quick autumn fix.
So this autumn don’t be afraid to bring out your summer clothes and style them like it’s cold outside 😉
Happy week everyone!
It’s a new week with new possibilities. This week I am sharing my love for yoga and few thoughts about self love. These pictures were taken last year, and I have come far from then to now. Keep your eyes on the blog, I will be soon posting some progress pictures and the journey from then to now.
So here we go, let’s talk about Self Love.
My whole teaching is this ” accept yourself, love yourself and celebrate yourself “
It sounds so simple ” accept yourself, love yourself and celebrate yourself” however it just until recently I came to realise that I did everything in the same oder but just for others. Some time we act or do things without self awareness. I don’t understand why is it so hard for us to be gentle and kind to ourself? Until you don’t realise it you wouldn’t act on it. So here is something to get you started.
I believe practice makes anything possible. So let’s practice self love until turns into our habit or rituals we can’t live without.
- Write notes to yourself, AKA what I like to call it is “Love letters for myself”. Write how amazing you are, how great your health is, how happy you are with your life, write everything good what you need to hear on a bad day.
- Talk to yourself like you will talk to someone you love. This might sound very simple but it’s one of the hardest thing to do.
- Eat like you love yourself.
- Move, walk, exercise, yoga. Pick a activity that you enjoy.
Happy week 🙂

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 😉

Good morning lovers,
How is everyone doing? Well, last few days have been crazy for me. We have finally moved into our new apartment. I am super excited about this new chapter!
Let’s get straight into the matter. Today I want to talk about all things street and style. Are you also obsessed with street style pictures. Well, I spend most of my free time going through street style pictures, especially the ones from fashion week. As much as I love the runway shows, I personally think street always does it better. Street style is all about knowing your style and customising each look to fit your personality. On the streets we do it bigger, louder brighter and some time all of it together. I really believe that these street style expertise are the most creative people in fashion. They are not afraid to try and experiment. Street always brings the freshness and newness to a existing trend.
If you have realised most of my pictures have this edgy street style flavour to it. The reason being, A: I wear the looks that I post. B: I am exactly the same person in pictures and walking around town getting shit done. Unless it’s an editorial where I most probably have the weirdest clothes or no clothes. haha.. Nay just kidding. So to smash a street style look you first need to have personal style. But finding your personal style is like finding that thing that almost doesn’t exist. To get their you have to dig deeper and experiment a lot, commit some fashion blenders. Oh well, now I am just exaggerating a bit. Honestly, personal style doesn’t knock at your door and say I am here, I believe you have to find it. For some it just comes easy like Alexa Chung. So take lessons from the masters of street style, experiment a few and stick to the ones you feel comfortable and you in it.
Hope this gets you experimenting! Until next week 🙂
“Everyday is our chance to find that vintage dress”
I found this dress hanging in my friends closet. It looked everything I imagined that vintage dress to be like. First of all it came in polk dots and wide pants. So 80’s!
I like vintage but I am not obsessed with it. Here in Amsterdam I see loads of people wear vintage on daily basis. To be honest, it looses it’s charm when almost everyone wears vintage and styled in a similar way.
I gave this jumpsuit bit of rocker Saint Laurent essence. This outfit is edgy, unapologetically bad girl as they call it for Saint Laurent girl with essence of night romanticism. I will wear this look for night out and switch to sneakers in case I decide to sip on some rose during the day.
