Back in Spain

Hello my loves,

I have just arrived in sunny Spain, still need a few days to settle in before I can get cracking with my blog again. It’s been a hectic few weeks!

Firstly, I did take the plunge to chop my hair off! I like it, but I already miss my long hair 😦 (knew this would happen). The pictures were taken in the Salon when my hair was completely straight. As my hair is naturally curly, its actually a lot shorter than it is on the pictures. I will upload a better picture of what it looks like now soon. 11209740_10153870160749937_4054216127951199655_n

University was absolutely hectic, but I have now completely finished my bachelor degree, still waiting for my results, and if all goes well I will be graduating in July 🙂 I have also had some amazing Master degree offers, one of which I will be accepting very soon. More updates and posts will follow very soon after I catch up on some much needed sleep and family time 🙂

Hope you are all doing well!

Lots of love

XO Kim

Im Baaaackkk (sort of…)

Hello my dears!

Yes, I am still alive! (more or less), it has been an absolutely hectic time lately. As I had previously mentioned, I’m in my final year of University, and had been working hard to finish all my deadlines and submit my dissertation. I have finally finished everything! Except one exam in around a week time, dun dun duuuuuun. After that, I’ll be hopping on a plane to see my family in Spain 🙂

For the meantime, I thought I’d share a few snapshots of things that have happened.

Shall We Dance?

Hello my loves,

I’m so excited about today’s blog post! As I’ve previously mentioned, about 12 weeks ago I started a ballroom dancing course at Pineapple Dance Studios. I have the most fabulous teacher, Michael Litke, who with his professionalism and good humor has made this course an absolutely incredible experience.

My reasons for deciding on doing ballroom dancing are simple, yet complex. I guess to a certain extent you could say that I’ve been raised with a dancing background, my mom is a former ballet dancer and now owns and runs an incredible dance studio in Spain. Ballet was never my forte, and it will never be… it’s just not in me. I did however take jazz classes with pilates and participated in our bi-annual dance performance. Here I danced the Charleston, the chorus line, an adaptation from Hello Dolly, and Little Red Riding Hood. So the world of dance was sort of thrust upon me.

Let’s Get Sporty With Fanatics

Hello my lovelies,

This week I was up for challenging myself a little. I was inspired to create a ‘luxe sporty’ look with an NFL jersey from Fanatics Sports Apparel. A sports jersey is the perfect essential for creating a sport luxe look and should really be the base for your whole look. Personally, as I am Dutch, I don’t know much about the NFL and the SuperBowl, except for what entertainment there is going to be and what controversial commercials there have been. But, I did find this proposition really interesting to create a sporty look with a luxury feel to it. A lot of people feel uninspired or don’t know where to start when creating a look that is based on sports garments, but I hope to be able to give a few tips to you all.

Not all women want to be decked out in NFL gear with tracksuit bottoms, so I wanted to have a slightly more fashionable take on sports wear. I have previously worn a look with a sport jersey from Alexander Wang, which was a very relaxed look, but slightly more fashionable than your average sports wear. So inspired by this, I was happy to take on this new and exciting challenge!

Fanatics Look2As I mentioned, I don’t know much about the teams and the players… (Except for Tom Brady.. who doesn’t know who he is 😉 ) So as I browsed through the Fanatics website, my main goal was to find a jersey that I would wear regardless of the team. I looked at colour schemes and designs that I felt would be most flattering for women. I loved the look of this jersey not only because of its platinum colour, but because of the darker side panels that it features. As a woman with curves, the darker panels will slim you down, making the illusion of an hourglass figure.
