aztec art

Can't imagine the fiddly work, sheer concentration and skillfully steady hands that were required in order to create these beauties, but am eternally longing for the day these nails are mine.

i love london

wanted: kiboots

I first saw these boots during a shopping trip in Amsterdam a few months ago, and even though due to time constraints I wasn't able to purchase any right there and then, it was pretty much love at first sight. Gradually it seems more people are cottoning onto the sheer genius of these boots, and the fact that they are the perfect addition to any wardrobe, spring, summer, autumn or winter. Now my only dilemma is to choose which pair is my favourite...

exotic luxury

I'm a big fan of summer, and it is without doubt my favourite season, also style and fashion wise. Summer screams time for colour after a drab winter of greys and winter, and allows you the freedom to experiment with different shapes, colours, and styles.  I'm also a fan of most beach editorials, and this shoot with Sara von Schrenk by Markuz Ziegler for Elle Mexico's July issue does not disappoint. One of the things that sets this shoot apart from all the other beach editorials is the hint of exotic luxury bought about by special attention to detail, and the fact that every shot is bathed in rich, deep colour. Stunning.

newly discovered divinity

I can't stop listening to this. Elena Tonra has the most angelic voice and the ability to say a lot with very little words. Hauntingly beautiful.

love for topshop

This week rumours have started going round about a potential Topshopbeing launched in Amsterdam on 10th june. This of course has generated huge excitement amongst the Topshop lovers here in Holland, yet unfortunately their ultimate dreams may not be coming true. The poster that was released (above) that was the source of all the rumours was slightly misleading, as it is in fact not a poster detailing a launch of Topshop but it publicises the launch of a Topshop line in the chain SPRMRKT, an already existing store chain in Amsterdam. A little Topshop is definitely better than no Topshop, but I'm still hoping for the day Topshop Amsterdam properly arrives!

Topshop continuously offers quality, on-trend pieces at affordable prices, and this season their jewelery collection has surpassed all expectations. Below is a sample of my favourite necklaces, you can vist their website to find more:

playful photoshoot

Karlie Kloss models the latest spring collections in this editorial for AnOther shot by Walter Pfeiffer, featuring work of Missoni, Prada, Hermes and more. The shoot is drenched in vibrant colour, and with varying backgrounds and backdrops each shot has a completely different story to tell. It's nice to see Kloss do something a little different!
