Will you believe me if I tell you I woke up since 4 o'clock in the morning? It wasn't my intention though..I put my alarm clock to 5:30 am. But I guess I was a little too excited. I didn't make a big deal about what to wear, I had all the time in the world. When I got there, it was about 7 o'clock, so I had 1 hour more to wait until the stored opened. There was already a small line of people, mostly girls waiting. Seems like the girls who were way in front, got there since 5:00 am!!!
I loved the way they turned the window into a Lanvin madness with all these funny cute mannequins.
I got a yellow band , meaning at 8:20 it was my turn to enter the Lanvin shop area. 15 minutes shopping seems such a short time, but when you're in line waiting for the group before you to finish, it seems like an eternity!
I already sorta knew what I was going to get, so I went to that rack right away. Along the way to the cashier I also saw this skirt, which seemed interesting so I got it aswell. Don't worry.. I did try it on first. The shirt is XS, but you won't believe how big it is!!!
When we were waiting in line we got this cute cloth bag from Lanvin
These are the cloth hangers you get to keep when you buy something :D
And this is the cute shopping bag shopping bag.
Mine is a little destroyed :( cause after I was finished it started raining.
The Lanvin shopping area was so cool, but taking pictures wasn't allowed..sorry
Did you got an item of this Lanvin [heart] H&M collection? Show me..
For myself I got this, bathroom soap thingy full with silver rhinestones €8,95..

Just visiting other fashion blogspots I found this website, Fashionology.. at first I thought it was a site with fashion knowledge, tips and newest trends, because of the name. But it is an online store that sells jewelry.
Not really my taste, but I did found this above-knuckle ring I kinda liked..
I have not seen anyone with this yet, that makes me even more eager to get it as soon as possible!
Now what if I add Louboutin? Now it does right!
This amazing shoe designer doesn't only give high heels to die for, it even feeds you. With these Louboutin shoes cookies. According to Fashionscene this eatable great idea was not that one from Louboutin itself, no it was from Sugar Envy. They also make fashionable cookies in designerbags, nail polish and dresses and more fashionables, but the Louboutin's are definitely the most beloved..
They look delicious right?
I wonder if these Louboutin's I could afford, lol
But cold or no cold, looking cute is always essential! Isn't it?
I read about these woolen headbands to keep your ears warm and look adorable slash stylish at the same time, on Girlscene.
I'm thinking about getting a pair/ pairs. My earwarmers don't need to feel betrayed though, I am still planning on wearing the cute ones I bought a couple of weeks ago. It's just nice to change it up a little.. Few days earwarmers, and some other days woolen headbands.
Check out a few I thought were very cute..
these are from ASOS.
What do you think about these winter woolen headbands? Worth a try, or do you prefer not too?
Know about another winter accessories you think is gonna be a major trend this year?
Let me know! Your predictions could be right..

23 november is THE day! And if I wasn't in this sort of money crisis right now, I would be even more excited!!
I already love everything about H&M.. But the fact that on this day, "Lanvin voor H&M" launches, makes it even more loveable. Want more info about the collection and such? Here is the 'LANVIN TO DESIGN EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION FOR H&M THIS AUTUMN' press release.
The idea (in Holland, I don't know about elsewhere) of this date is that the first 320 people in line get one of the 16 different colored wristbands. Only females get wristbands. For the collection of males there are no wristbands. Lucky them, because these wristbands indicate which time you get to enter. Every shopper gets ONLY 15 minutes in the shop! But here is the catch: There is a purchase limit of 1 piece or 1 size per item!! Sad part is = Sold out means SOLD OUT! Girlscene.
There is something sooo special about the whole campaign. Everything has something so unique, girly and stylish at the same time.. If you see the site, the logo, the clothes hangers, the shopping bags etc. It is just soo cool! So original! And God knows fashion is all about originality!!
Got excited about it? Get ready to wake up EARLY or just sleep in front of the shop all night if you must.. joke! Or maybe, a few Lanvin-crazies will actually do it. But I doubt it.
If you live in one of these 4 cities, consider yourself lucky >
Amsterdam: Kalvertoren & Nieuwendijk
Den Haag: Wagenstraat
I would tell you all about Lanvin and the Lanvin [hearts] H&M! But I think it's better if you read about it yourself, to really see what items you like and to really get to know about this collection!
So here you go babes:
LANVIN ♥'s H&M
What are you thoughts? Marking 23 november on your reminder or what?
Let me know, what pieces you thought looked fabulous and tell me which ones you'll leave on the racks!

Remember I had a post about how I love wedges? Scroll down!
So I decided to order one pair from AlysaMode and I got them deliverd about 1 week ago!
I was really excited to wear them so yesterday I finally did at a class trip to the club in Rotterdam..
My feet didn't hurt the whole night! Usually when I'm wearing heels I am not able to dance through the night because of the pain and uncomfortable feeling heels give my feet. But not wedges! I was so impressed! It's because of the heels that runs from the end of the foot till in the middle. So it gives it a stable feeling, so you can dance the whole night plus walk a couple of miles back home! Pretty and Comfortable, it couldn't have been better!
These are the :
Code: FZ -135 KK
Sorry for the unprofessional photos and the change in color..
If you go on their website you'll see the actual khaki color it really has.
Now that I got me a pair of wedges, I definitely want to purchase a few more!
What do you think? Are they a DO or a DON'T for you?!

This fall/winter is full of new trends, and these are some of my favorites..
For the ones that didn't know.. Polyvore is a website used by fashion and art lovers where you can mix and match outfits and create your own set. I love Polyvore. For me it is kind of a before-going-shopping guide. In my head I create the "perfect" look -for an event or whatever, with the help of Polyvore! When I'm finished getting all my items together as one outfit, I can see if my perfect outfit was as perfect in my head as it is when I actually put them together. If it is,when I go shopping I know what I'm looking for right away. It's fun and it saves me a whole lot of time!
Trends you might recognize in my set are:
1. Leopard Print - I think this is my all time favorite this season.. I have sooo many things in leopard print.. I just can't stop buying them!
2. Military - To me it feels as I'm just as strong as the real deal! But of course more femenine.. And more fashionable!
3. MNY Maybelline Cosmetics - You read me talk about this cosmetic line already! Since I've bought some of the products, I used at least one of them everyday..
4. Soft Pink Lipstick - What can i say? Love it !
5. Winter Gloves - Winter is coming up! And I want to be as prepared as possible. I bought one pair in Leopard Print as well.. I'm obsessed okay!!
6. Flower Power - These past few weeks I noticed I bought a lot of flowery accessories! From rings, to necklaces to even hair accessories! They are cute and very girly and liven up your outfit.
7. Black Leather Leggings - Just like every girl needs a LBD, we need a BLL as well!
8. Ear warmers and Bows - Hey, they're cute!
9. Knee Socks - I was never fond of them before, but after seeing some street looks I totally am!
10. Wedges - In my next post, I'll talk a little about the ones I recently bought!
11. Tall Boots - Uhmm.. No description needed, I think! But if you must > Edgy and Stylish.. duh!
What are YOUR favorites this season?

Water regulates your body temperature, transports oxygen to your cells and protects organs. And there is less chance for dehydration.
But for a teenage girl like me water is important because I get a clearer skin, healthier hair etc. etc.
I have never really been a fan of drinking water. Never!
People ask me "how can you not love drinking water? It has no taste" < EXACTLY!
Water has no taste, no color and that's why I prefer a coke 1000x more than water!
these 8 weeks are going to be different!
For beginning of November till the end of 2010, I decided to have my own drink-water challenge..
Since yesterday was Nov 1., I started yesterday..
I made up my own rules just to keep it fun..
A week has 7 days..
so by Day1, I should drink at least one bottle of water. By Day2 at least 2.. By Day3 at least 3 and so you get my point. I am of course allowed to drink more bottles than the minimum!
Note: my bottle is one of 50cl.. (Babysteps for me, people! lol)
And so I go on until week 8, which is at the end of December!
I am excited to see the end result.. So I am really into my own challenge and am very motived to go on!
Join me in my 8 week challenge!!!
Have another beauty-related challenge? I'd love to hear about them.. Comment!

According to Girlscene.nl not only girls are seen wearing this belt trend, even boys.
Here are some pictures:

Even if you don't really follow every trend, you still must have noticed them on the streets..
Wedges are one of this years fall, favorite trend amongst girls..
Most of the time, the heels sits under only the heel of the foot. The heels of wedges, runs under the foot from the back to the middle, and sometimes the front of the shoe. The heel somewhat has a triangular shape. The height of the heel does depend on the shoe, though.
A lot of people confuse a 'platform shoe' with 'wedges'.
I didn't have a chance to get some wedges yet, nor did I see some I like in the stores. Girlscene posted an article about wedges today. And in that article I got a site where they sell some really nice ones. And I wanted to share a few of my favorite ones with you!
1. Lotte Camel
Heel: 10.5 cm
Boot Top: 9 cm
2. Macie Zwart
Heel: 10 cm
Boot Top: 7.5 cm
Material: Faux Suede
3. Claire Beige
Heel: 9 cm
Boot Top: 37 cm
Material: Faux Suede
These are just 3 of so many that I liked. And the prices are ridiculously cheap if I must compare them with other stores. So I will see if I can get a chance to go get some fast!
Want to see the rest? Visit Alysa Mode.
It is a Dutch site, so the the first and the second you will find them under >> "Korte Laarzen".
And the last one under >> "Lange Laarzen"
Do you know any other site? Or do you have a picture off one you really like? Or one that you actually have.. post me the link, post a picture or just a little comment in the comment box below :)

As if I had no new cute clothing, I took her little invitation as a pre-shopping trip the day before..
It was a rainy day, but nothing can really come between me and all those clothing stores waiting for me..
My first stop was all chic and geek in Paris with my cool pink sunglasses
I always loved Claire's and I always manage to spend at least 25, it doesn't matter if it is € or $. I mean which girl can resist all those cute jewelry and other girlie accessories.. NOT ME, that's for sure!
left: eiffeltoren earrings €5.95
right: pink sunglasses earrings €4.50
When I saw the eiffeltoren ones, I grabbed it right away. It is so cute and girly. And I want to go to Paris sooo bad. So whenever I will wear it, I will probably feel a little plus proche de Paris. The sunglasses, I think they're cute, funny and very unique. Very funky.
black earwarmers with little bow €14.95
I love earwarmers, I think I love them because they're cute and I know of a lot of people that don't really wear these in the winter. I don't want to be just like the rest.
black retro glasses €8.95
I've wanted these for so long, just because it's funky and I wouldn't normally go out with it.. But I did want to buy to try it on and take funny pictures. haha
Next was : Tally Weijl- Totally Sexy..
A super cool store which I never even heard off before. But once I saw it I went in right away. It has a very stylish style with a little bit of a pinkish touch and some cool disco light balls. And the prices are very affordable. I would loveeee to work at a place like this. Would take a picture of the store, but usually it isn't allowed. So I didn't want to be embarrassed in front of all those people, just in case.
First I was just going to buy this nudeish belt with round golden studs €7.95,
but when I was in line at the cashier, I saw this cute necklace with detailed black flowers and rhinestones €5.95, I couldn't resist..
Yess, i did buy skirts in winter time :)
NEW YORKER: I once walked pass this store, but I had no money.. so I didn't dare to enter!! This store makes you crazy. It has like similar fashion style as H&M and maybe even Mango.. but some of the prices are so much more attractive!!! Gosshhh..
First I saw this tee with print €4.95, which was very military-like, which trend I am loving nowadays btw..
These skirts were on sale, because winter is coming up and nobody really wants to be wearing skirts in this cold. Neither do I.. I still bought it, because I thought of next years summer! Cause then everybody would probably be buying skirts again!
And you wouldn't believe the prices these skirts have now.. Just wait a couple months and you'll see the same types of skirts for far more money!! Smart thinking huh?!
The leopard one €9.95 I wore already, but unfortunately I didn't have any pictures taken... I wore it with a pair of black leggings, a black tank top and a leopard print cropped vest. With a pair of high boots..
The skirt is 100% polyester.
The black and grey striped one €6.95, is a little shorter than the leopard. It has a little zipper in the back. And it is 65% polyester and 35% cotton.
This black cropped vest €9.95 is just something you can wear with anything really. With these shoulder statements, you'll look stylish either way!
These dark olive plaited straps €2.95 will look really cute either in your hair as a hair band or you can wear it has a forehead-band.
My Underground Discovery
God knows how many times I entered V&D in the Hague.. And I never knew that there were stores underground too.. I always just stayed on the what I thought was ground floor.. but last saturday I discovered this store which is basically to die for..
They have shirts, pants, dresses, shoes, bags.. but i went directly to their jewelry and accessories and bought..
this layered necklace with pearls €7,-, detailed with a flower. In the back you can tie it in a bow with this dark blue velvet lining.
this peach-y head band with a big flower €4,-
this flowery bow headbow €5,-
I just realised everything I bought has either a flower pattern or e detailed flower..even this ring €4,-
Lady Gaga saved my life!
Remember the particular pink shade color I couldn't find for sooo long? Thanks to Lady Gaga that is a problem no more! :D
I went into Bijenkorf where they have a special area for M.A.C makeup.. Well apparently Lady Gaga has this lipstick line called: 'Lustre Lipstick: Rouge à Lèvres', where they had the shade I was looking for.. I was so happy I finally got it!! I did pay €17.50, but just for this time it was worth it..
And finally, the last stop isssss...
A 'Oh-my-God' jewelry store! I'm serious.. a girl will go crazy in theree.. I did *blush face*
But I manage to buy only..
this silver ring €5.95
