Todays 'shopping' result


SALE!

I never like sale that much, it's very messy and busy and you can't find anything. Today I went to Luton to see what's going on in stores, and indeed, very, very busy. All shoes were sold out in my size, and, very messy and busy.

Than, I saw a very pretty cardigan, the perfect colour and full of pearls and sparkles. It was the only thing that really 'jumped out' and I'm very, very, very with it!
Also bought a few presents for my brother's birthday!

H&M Spring Collection.









Finally, something new in the H&M online shop!
As you can see from this selection of pictures, it's a lot of old-pink, old-blue and taupe. Safe, but classic colours.

I have to say, I'm not very surprised, but I also have to say, there are some items I would like to fill my closet with. As the three, exactly the same blouses, but in three different colours, and some of the dresses and shoes. Guess I can't leave them in store for the always low H&M prizes!

Dresses

Well, I love dresses. I've got a load and when I see a nice one I almost always buy it. But I'm really upset that I dont know when to wear them. I know that I can wear them with Christmas and Newyears, but when else do I wear them? I mostly try to dress up when we go out for dinner. Maybe I should throw a few parties this summer, maybe a cocktail night!?

Who wants to come?!

Surprise!




I was working today and in my break I wanted to check if I got any postcards or Christmas cards..and than, I got a very beautifull 'Pip Studio for TNT' box, as you can see on the picture!

I was trying to keep myself from opening it but my collegues wanted to know what was in there as well, so we opened it anyway, it was from my mom, brother and my mothers best friends! I tought maybe a letter and a little present, but it was loaded with little gifts!
A few were wrapped in see-trough paper and two other ones were wrapped with normal paper so I left those wrapped, so I can open them tomorrow in the evening, when it's really Christmas!

The things I got(which I unwrapped);
- H√ľnkemoller socks
- 2 very pretty angels
- Jingle bells with a 'Merry Christmas' sign
- 'Bijenkorf' giftcard
- Sweet snowman lollypop

I'll show you what else I got tomorrow!

Many thanks to Mum, Robbert, Gera and Joke!

Happy days!

The week I was back in Holland, we had the, very dutch, Sinterklaas celebration. We did it at my mums with my nephews, aunt, uncle and grandma and grandpa.

I got some pretty things!

- Since I'm a fan of Marco Borsato for the moment I heard his voice, my brother got me his brand new, signed CD
- I was in town centre with mom and saw the Hunkemöller above, that I instantly loved. She got me this one
- I've already got Love Letters of great men, and my lovely nephew got me Love Letters of great woman

Other little things I got were;
- a few lipglosses
- glitter eyeliners
- a scratchbook
- good pencils

Family fun..


Me, mom, Robbert in London



Me and the brothers at home.


Me and the brothers - Ibiza 2009


I've got two houses, in one I'm in a family of three people, my mom, my brother Robbert and me.
When I'm at my mom's, we're going out for lunch almost everyday, do some great cooking, baking and watch tv in front of the fireplace. We like to watch movies and just have cosy nights. We're with 3 at home, but there are mostly more people joining us for dinner, my aunt with the children cause my uncle is travelling all over the world for work, same as my mothers friend Gera and her kids. Food is such a big thing in my life, just because it's connecting and you've got time to talk about everything that's going on in life and hear what others do! When my mum is working, me and my brother are happy to eat where she's managing!

In the other house we're with six, my dad, my stepmom Jolanda, my stepbrothers Tom and Mike and my brother Robbert.

We're living with six since April last year, and because it's a bit of a men's house, we're still designing my bedroom and the new bathroom so everyone has it's own. The best days of the week at my dad's are Sat- and Sunday, I mostly go out for a lunch with my stepbrother Mike and do some shopping afterwards. After my stepmom returns from her grosery shopping we mostly crush the couch with some Ben&Jerry's. Sundays we mostly watch the Sundaynight TV-shows with a large platter of Old Amsterdam, salmon, filet american,(home made) cocktail and garlic sauce, fresh baguettes, and thin slices of Italian sausage. We're always sitting there with 6-10 people and having a good time with wine and those little snacks above!

Those are just little family thing's I'm missing while I'm in UK. Good thing that the shopping is MUCH better out here!

Christmas Wishlist.




- Benefit Cosmetics
- Topshop headband(in dark blue)
- Over the knee socks
- Noosa 'chunks'

Looking for some sport..

Since I've been in the UK, I'm thinking of something usefull kind of thing to do when I'm back in The Netherlands. Because I was playin' soccer(nobody believes me when I tell that), or actually, most of the time I was in the goal waiting for some action to come.
Since April last year I'm doing nothing really. I don't like the gym that much because there are a lot of people I know and than I would probably be only talking to people instead of working out.

So, I was thinking of hockey, but I did some research, and found out that I would not be in the team I would like to be in. Maybe I can ask for a cheat of age so I can be in the team I want to be in.

I'm looking for suggestions really, cause I've got NO idea what kind of sport would suit me..

Help?!
