Since my shoe No buy, I changed my mind a bit about shopping. Don’t get me wrong, I still love shopping and I can shop for hours and hours. But I changed my mind a bit about the prices. Back in the days (okay last year) I bought everything I liked. I couldn’t have enough jeans, shirts and blazers. I still prefer some brands more like others, like blazers from Rinascimento. I just love the fit, the fabric and the quality. But you pay for that, not a little. Nope, a lot! Still love it, but I don’t live at the end of a rainbow anymore.
In honor of their first anniversary YBS organized a fashionshow. My friend Fleur was invited and asked me to join her.
YBS (Young But Successful) is an International platform & Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle magazine. To be honest, I’ve never heard about it, but I’m always up for new things! So, Fleur and I went to Amsterdam to see what it was all about.
A couple days ago I decided I needed some new dresses. I have been studying my ass off and I needed to give myself a reward. I mean, working fulltime, trying to finish a Masters AND being on a shoe no buy is not easy! Sometimes a girl need to spoil herself. Like Mae West once said: “I never loved somebody like I loved myself.” When you love somebody you gotta show that, why not show that with rewards after a week of hard work
By the way; I was very very brave. I did not take a look at the shoes they sell at Forever 21. Not even a glimpse. I only took a look at the dresses!! I am so proud of myself!! Continue reading
I’m on a shoe no-buy for a reason… As some of you have experienced in real life: I have way to many shoes. Guilty as charged. That’s the reason why I started this blog. Being on a No-Buy is not an easy thing. There are temptations everywhere. I am struggling like a child who can’t touch anything in a candystore…
So I decided to make things a bit easier. This is #1 of a new category: How to survive a No-Buy! Continue reading

I love to sit at a coffee bar like Starbucks where people sit down to study or work. When I have a deadline or a writersblock I always go to one of these places, sit down with my beloved laptop and spy on people. Sometimes you hear the juiciest gossip or craziest fights. I’ve ‘joined’ a first date, a nasty breakup and a revealing confession. Continue reading
My shoe addiction started a long, long time ago, when I was a little girl.
I was a one of those girly girls, I especially loved to play with my Barbie dolls. My two sisters and I shared a huge collection. We even had some old ones my mom used to play with when she was little. My favorite was one with blond hair with green glittery stripes in her hair. She was pretty and could pull off any outfit I picked out for her. She never looked fat or ugly. Continue reading
