3 Weekend Worthy things To Do {for your Home}

Photos by Paulina Arcklin and Tim Collins, Home stories and Deco ideas for magazines.


1) Getting Spring Ready

One thing I always do when I see editorials I really like is to look up the stylists, interior stylists and photographers online, most stylists have blogs, websites and/or online portfolio's where you can see more of what you loved about them in the first place! Paulina Arcklin is one of those Stylists I really like! I love to see her behind the scenes photos and love her eye for detail!

So to get to the point: Getting Spring ready by adding Green! Plants, flowers and green interior details! Plus add some Spring texture in Fabrics by using cotton and Linen! 

Most fun to do, by far, is a Seasonal make-over by painting old furniture, wooden crates and frames! and totally a Spring thing to do because you want the weather to allow you to open the windows to get rid of the smell! If not, there are always Easter Eggs that will need some color too of course!

btw. How delicious do these Paint-Tins look as color accent? And I bet we can give them a little job on their own like storing Pencils in them!
  

2) Using Something as Something else

The best thing ever!
Take one object (like a vintage suitcase) and use it as something else: bedside table, pet-bed, chair, storage for books, flower pot (why not?) or you can start packing for a weekend get-a-way of course :)It's totally perfect for the weekend because here it's actually important that you don't think rational!

the suitcase is of course just an example but what about an upside-down clothing hanger for your jewelry or this DIY bedside table? Or go totally cute with a diy tea-cup candle

3) Storage? Why? Books, Magazines and Shoes

Why bother storaging magazines, books and shoes, there is no space left anyway and they actually look good when placed right! Plus you don't have to buy new books, magazines and shoes while still getting that same exiting feeling when they are re-organized and placed nicely on a shelf!

Getting Curve-ID'd!

Levi's Curve ID Advertisement photographed by VIVIANE SASSEN + Event photo's by me


Yesterday I went to Amsterdam to attend Levi's Fitting event together with Yara and Cindy

We got measured for our perfect Levi's Curve ID and tried a pair of jeans that fitted perfectly! The concept of the Levi's Curve ID is that it focuses on your body shape instead of your size and you can get measured for a Slight, Demi or Bold curve in any of their stores!(and even do a little online test!) 

I got measured a Slight Curve and fell in love with the ankle skinny in coral! Perfect for Spring!

OUTFIT: White embroidered flowers and Dr Martens

wearing: Zara sequined biker jacket, Zara eyelet/embroidered flowers top, Chloe silk eyelet skirt, Dr Martens boots

I always love wearing romantic, sweet items with Biker jackets and boots, and this Zara top is just a perfect match when it comes to that! I actually went back to the Zara the other day to buy the same top in a pastel pink color! The lime green heels I loved so much where nowhere to be found but I noticed a leather biker jacket that looked really good! I do love the jacket that I'm wearing right now but uhm come on, it are sequins and I don't want to wear sequins everyday haha!

OUTFIT: Wondering Whites

Wearing: Zara Blazer, Zara Eyelet Top, H&M trousers, Silver Glitter heels from Beacon's Closet


And here is the full white look! I was wondering (while waiting for the Fedex)why it is that I love the color white more in Spring looks instead of Summer Outfits (same with the color Green and Lavender).. I think it has something to do with the freshness that comes with Spring.. (think fresh mowed grass, the scent of Clean Linen and the typical Spring flowers)and talking about fresh colors: I saw some amazing lime green platform sling-back shoes in the Zara that would look amazing with all-white outfits as well.. shall I or shall I not?

Testing, one two three...


I've spend the whole day testing my new Camera (Mark II) and lens! (the lens is a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM) It's like a whole new world! and I have so much more to learn! It was a very cloudy and pretty dark day actually with a lots of wind, so it seems the camera and lens have no problem with that! 

I mostly have to get used to the lens, I like the fact that we can finally zoom in and out (I mostly use a 50mm lens) but the lens slims down (compared with the 50mm) And me being already very skinny the last thing I need is a lens that takes away the pounds!.. but maybe that's just me and how we used the lens..

So yes, back to fashion: On this new Camera Safari/Adventure I wore a Zara floral dress, H&M Army Jacket and Asos dr. Martens boots!

Top 10 Fashion Blogger Designers & Artists

Cinemagraph by From Me To You

A lot of Fashion Bloggers (some of whom even started their blogs randomly while still being in school) have started own labels, stores and companies over time and grew out to be well known creative forces outside of the blogsphere with features and editorials in magazines, advertising campaigns and a even a clientele involving Lady Gaga!

And at the same time they are also a lot of well known Fashion Bloggers who started blogs as Photographers, Designers and Illustrators to promote their works and grew out to be famous on the other end of the spectrum. 

One thing is for sure; There is many many great talent in, on and around the Blogsphere and for many the Fashion Blogs have delivered an abundance of opportunities in the creative fields!

Check out Today's Top 10 Fashion Blogger Designers & Artists!

It will be the season of jeans (jackets, shirts and especially sleeveless denim shirts) and it just so happens that Band T-shirts combine perfectly with them!

I almost wore this outfit with my Frye engineer boots but last moment I decided to combine the look with pretty strappy shiny heels!

3 Weekend Worthy things To Do


 
1) Organizing your Closet

I'm not talking about a full-scale closet-operation but about placing favorite items for the coming week together on a rotation rack or on a shelf! Shoes, Bags, matching accessories, blouses, jeans etc. Some quality Closet time :)



2) Home Decor

And I'm not talking about a complete re-do here either! I'm talking about changing details; fresh flowers, changing the pictures in your Frames, re-organizing your display, book shelves and even pillows and rugs! No shopping needed (except the flowers)

3) Photoshop Actions

Maybe at first sight a bit weird in this list, but photoshop actions are really fun to play around with if you have some free-time on your hands!  

DeviantART has an amazing collection of free photoshop actions, giving you lighting effects, vintage effects and about every other photo editing effect you can imagine! But it takes time browsing around and not all actions will work or give an effect that goes with your photos!

Below is one of only a few actions I liked! Download it (here) and open it in photoshop actions (go to your actions > load actions) When you press the little play button it will automatically run the effect on your photo!

Triceratops

via stylestalkerblog, Last image jak&jill maybe? (I'm guessing..)


This just means that I will watch Jurassic Park tonight...

I guess I'm too late for a Giles Deacon Dino bag since these are from the SS2010 collection..  But how perfect would these pastel metallic Dino's go with this coming season?! 

I remember having a pastel pink/yellow plush Dinosaur toy when I was little, a Triceratops just like this one!

INSPIRATION: Biker Jackets

images via weheartit


Very high on my shopping wish-list is a black leather biker jacket, after all it's a wardrobe classic! and I allow myself to splurge on classics! I'm looking for a (somewhat) slim fit, supple leather, slightly rounded shoulders and a classic shape and details (like the shapes and details of the 1st and the last 2 pics)Hopefully I will have some black leather luck soon ;)
