I have updated my wardrobe to fit the chilly autumn weather (thanks to Glamour's shopping day I was able to do this at 20 % off). Fortunately this week it was surprisingly warm in Holland, so no need for the new big coat I got at H&M. No worries I am sure I will be able to wear it very soon.......

A little dream house

I was watching a new episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians on E! and when I saw Kim's new house I was in awe and I could only think: when I grow up I want to live in a house like this too. I guess I'll have to start saving some money, since the house costs $4.8 million.

I wonder if you agree with me that this house is just amazing. You have to love Kim K. for her good taste and her smart business sense.

Glamour's Big High Heel Study!

A few months ago I went to see Glamour magazine, as a participant to a study they were conducting on women and style. Little did I know they were researching if women wearing high heeled shoes feel more confident and sexy than women wearing flats. When I came into the studio I received flats, since I am only 1m59 I was clearly not amused. When I got into the flat shoes, I had to fold up my jeans, because they were clearly too long.

I was asked many questions, and I have to say, people that know me, know that I am a confident person. And wearing flat shoes did not change that. But according to the study results women wearing high heels are more confident and feel more sexy. (I thought we already knew that) But anyway I had a great time at Glamour magazine and I met some great wonderful and beautiful people.

You can check out the results in the October issue of Glamour Magazine and read more about my participation in one of my previous postings.

What I was wearing: glad to be back.

It's been a while, but it is good to be back. I started a new job and needed some time to get adjusted to my new situation. And it is good to know that my absence did not go unnoticed. Thank you all for the sweet personal reactions.

To start of a new set of postings, let me just show you what I have been wearing lately. I hope you'll be inspired.

Great Surinam restaurant: Garden of Eden

So when I was in Surinam my aunt took me to Garden of Eden, a Thai restaurant. From the moment I walked in the garden I thought I was in Thailand, the decor was just amazing, with genuine Thai furniture and decorations.

We were seated in the garden by a very friendly and very handsome young man, and when we asked for a seat on the front side of the restaurant, that was no problem at all. And the food...... even more Thai than I have ever tasted. And that is a compliment. My aunt recommended the Mango salad as a starter, and ofcourse I tried that. The plate turned out to be more than enough for 3-4 people so we could all have a taste. And it was heavenly. The sweet and fresh taste of mango combined with peanuts and other wonderful flavours.

For the main course we ordered different dishes, all equally tastefull. After dinner I went to explore the toilets upstairs, and to my surprise the top floor (where the toilets were located) offered a taste of Thai home life. I was welcomed in a beautiful room decorated as a living room with authentic Thai furniture. I just had to sit done for a minute and take in the environment.

This restaurant gets a thumbs up from me. The only downside I can think of when talking about Garden of Eden, is that it is in Surinam and I am not anymore.......

What I was wearing in Surinam.

Trousers from Massimo Dutti and Zara top.
Skirt from Mexx and top from We.Dress I bought in NYC, ready to go out to a party.

Ofcourse I wore more than these three outfits, but unfortunately I did not take a picture of my outfit everyday. All I can tell you it was hot, so all summer outfits, easy breezy summer dresses and lots of shorts and tops.

It's great to be back!

Fresh fruit from the garden.
My aunt's house.The view when you walk in.Nicely decorated, it was an absolute treat to stay here.

It has been a while, and after 5 weeks it's good to be back. Surinam is a wonderful, and very beautiful country to visit. The nature is overwhelming, seeing so much green trees, fresh fruits and vegetables was something I could easily get used to. And it reminded me that we live very grey and unhealthy lives in Europe. All in a fast pace, stressing ourselves out over work, and other obligations. The people in Surinam are warm and the food is great. In the last week of my vacation I stayed at my aunt's house, another aunt. She has a beautiful home, and I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday there. Here are some pictures to give you an impression of my visit to Surinam.
