Instagram 010 - Running round in love

Ah my last Instagram post is already a while ago, so there are three extra photographs. Also because they fit the other six. Lately there have been online lovely thingies. 1. Paul and I went for breakfast in this lovely 'living room society' cafe The Fuzz, it's amazing there: a high ceiling with flowers and lots of vintage things. 2. Anna came to see my new room! We had a lovely day in the city. 3. Winter wardrobe on the rail. 4&5. Love these photos of my room. 6. Anna and I had brownies, cheesecake and tea at Daen's in Utrecht, also very vintage and lovely. 7. Aaah the amazing Brother and Bones, his voice is beautiful. 8. Some views of my school project. 9. Monday Paul and I were 5 years together and we had the perfect day! And I have to put this upon here: he got us tickets for Ben Howard! And I'm so happyyy! Can't wait to see him live and listen to the beautiful new songs and ofcourse the old ones. This week is test week so there will be a little studying but it will be okay! What do you think of these photos? And are you so in love with Ben Howard's music as I am?

Mineral Admiration

I can not keep my eyes off of these illustrations. For a school assignment we have to do something with illustrators, when I went searching up some, I found these amazing pieces from Karina Eibatova. Looking upon her website/online portfolio there are a lot more illustrations so if you fall for these (just like I did) certainly take a look there for more! 
The way she uses the watercolor paint is amazing, I love the colors she uses and how they are combined. The stones truly shine and they are very dreamy and maybe even seem like magic. She sais her inspiration comes from nature: landscapes, the universe and essential things like these stones. I feel like these colours and this style are close to me. Thereby she makes something very new out of 'existing' stones. Right now I would love to try watercolor too and make things like these! What do you think of her work?

Just feel, and if it feels like home, then follow it's path

Finally I have time to breathe, and blog, again! Last week there were two big deadlines for school. Now autumn-break is here and this post will be fully about my nem room/interior! With al this time I took photographs of my new room in Utrecht. The most important thing to say about it is that I'm so happy and so in love with how my room turned out. As you can see I got the beloved lace curtains, also my rail is al setteled up and I have a new bed. A single one beacause my room is too small for a bigger one. But this bed is just fine and there is room for thingies beneath. Don't you love my lace and the knitted plaid?
There are two big things in the room: the colour white and wood. I'm so happy with the wooden floor and also with the diagonally wood they bring something cosy. And to give all this white some colour I have my clothing rail, two persian carpets, a dark-red cupboard for the turntable, and some little coloured details. I really love how it turned out, the vintage element which I love is also very clear. What do you think of my room? And are you living on your own too?

Outfit - Words mean more at night

Vintage bag & cardigan - Brandy Melville tshirt-dress - H&M floppy hat - Cos chelsea boots - Selfmade bracelets

A new outfit! I put some of my favourite fall colours together in one outfit: knitted burgundy-red, black and some brown leather. This tshirt-dress is so comfy it is like wearing pyjamas and still look nice. It is a bit short though so I wear it with some shorts underneath. The cardigan and bag are vintage and I love the fact that they give a little colour to my outfit. The cardigan is really warm: the wind won't get through, so that is perfect for these colder days! Ah and you can't see the necklace that good, but it is a stone necklace I got from Paul and I love it so much! You can see it better in this post.
I shot the photos with Anna again, so if you're reading Anna: thankss :). It was already getting dark when we were shooting, and there were some staring people that past by, akward! Thereby they are a bit blurry but maybe that is what I love about these photos. I edited them with a rusty layer for a little bigger vintage effect. Especially the photo in the middle is lovelt, where you see me walking alway. I love the atmosphere in that one! What do you think of these photos being not really scharp? And about the outfit?
