RECAP || The Year 2013

december 30, 2013
 Click read more for a HUGE recap of 2013!

My birthday shoot! I received so much love during my birthday! The previous picture was of my birthday shoot itself, still so happy with the results! It was a huge hit! Thanks again my love and bestie! 
 
 The preppy valentine outfit especially for the boy on a weekend off – sleeping in a castle and relaxing in a spa. 

The very first outfit with the 50 mm lens! I will never forget how happy I was with this toy!

  Probably my favorite outfit and shoot of the year! I can’t get enough of it! I even made it my Facebook page cover! So much power! The location is also something to remember: this oufit was shot in Greece on the island Crete on a holiday with my beautiful babes! Stay tuned for something special with this look in 2014!
 My first experience with the raincoats of PIOGG that were pretty and above all, rainproof! Hello fashion and goodbye soaking-wet-look!

So proud I won the contest of Goosegraft x B.Loved by styling this beautiful bag and necklace in this colorful spring look!

When Summer arrived…I was so happy like a kid in a candy store! Hence the celebration of summer with an outfit as sweet as candy. You guys must love candy as well! ūüėČ
 The beautiful and amazing backpacking trip with my bestie is something that I will never forget. I spent the most amazing moments of 2013 in Indonesia. Embraced the culture forever.

 This year I got the opportunity to write a monthly column for F.A.L.L. Magazine. Very grateful for that! Of course, I had to write about my obsession for leather that lasted the whole year of 2013 (and probably next year as well!).

The outfit that came with the love story of me suprising my love in New York. So lovely to see how love is being loved! This was the most populair post of the year! It’s all because the love..sigh..

2013 was the year that made me fell in love with tartan! You guys share my love! Thank you!

My very first Halloween outfit on the blog. Shot on a roof in Brooklyn with a view of Manhattan. It couldn’t be more successful. I got so many compliments and positive responses! 
I hope you all loved this recap of 2013 as much as I did when I look back at those pictures! These outfits were the most popular outfits/shoots of the year and somehow it doesn’t surprise me that each   one them has their own stories just like I summarized it underneath every photo. It’s not only about the appearance, what’s behind that is just as important ;).  It was a beautiful year to look back to. I received so much support and love from my loved ones, but also so much  from you! It feels so good that so many people share your passion and support you in that! I’m very thankful for all of that! 
We definitely can close this beautiful year with the note that love wins! Always. 
Love, Farah

Outfit || New Year’s Resolutions

december 28, 2013
 
Paris2Day sequin dress // V&D clutch // H&M bracelets // Zara heels

Ph//AnnisaGM

Hi dearies!
The belly’s are stuffed: it’s after-Christmas time. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and your loved ones. I had a lovely time with the family and ended the third Christmas dinner with a Persian one at my parents’ place. Gotta love Persian food! But…Time to get ready for Yew Years Eve!
Getting ready for New Year’s Eve all starts with finding the dress. But not just a normal one. No, it has to be glamorous, outstanding, extraordinary and so on.¬† Am I right ladies? It’s a struggle right? Well, not anymore! I found you your New Years Eve dress! This long sleeved (very handy for these cold days!) shiny dress covered in thousands of sequins is the dress to turn your head for. Literally, ’cause this time it’s when others notice the low back (read: it’s then when others will gaze at you:D). It’s elegant and sexy at the same time. I combined it with a golden clutch and golden bracelets to make the party look complete (it has to be gold baby!). And again, those ‘you’re so perfect’ hair extensions from Luxury for Princess! I’m hooked, just like the love I have to dresses and heels. No more words are needed! Says enough:)
Get your dress HERE to shine on New Years Eve! (P.S. if you order it on Monday the latest, you’ll have it in time for NYE!)
Love, Farah

Outfit || Christmas One Piece Wonder

december 25, 2013

Ph//AnnisaGM

Hi lovely dearies!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!! Hope you had an amazing Christmas Eve, and will have an even better Christmas Day and a relaxed Boxing Day to just lie down and recover from Christmas dinner! Those of you who follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook know that I already have had my first Christmas dinner! Actually, it was more of a pre-Christmas dinner. For Christmas Eve I just stayed in with my bestie and watched the All you need is love Christmas special. That’s a tear-jerking TV-show here in the Netherlands, in which Robert ten Brink surprises those who have loved ones far far away with whom he reunites them. A relaxed evening after an afternoon shooting at the Double Tree Hotel Skylounge. Tomorrow, I’m going to enjoy a cheese fondue with the bf and a dinner with the in-laws again the day after tomorrow. Lots of delicious food, love and fun!
This is the outfit that I’ll be wearing on Boxing Day (or as the Dutch call it: the second day of Christmas). It’s a classy outfit and perfectly suitable for a Christmas dinner with the in-laws. It’s not always about the dress is it? This one piece wonder is very chic. Oh! And another note,  it also isn’t always about buying a whole new outfit. I combined this jumpsuit from Mango that I already have with a new belt. Just added one piece that changed the whole look. This belt is a true #1 eye catcher and very trending at the moment! I love to wear gold when it comes to a party look!

During Christmas/the holidays I love to pay more attention to beauty and hair. This year I had the opportunity to wear/try beautiful hair extensions for the first time in my life! I found a new love, I’m totally in love. My bf has competition and it’s called Luxury for Princess! My hair has never been sooo big, voluminous and pretty! And the best part is, these extensions use clip-ins that are so easy to use. You can put them in so easily and these extensions aren’t heavy at all! I honestly didn’t feel them while wearing them. My bestie helped me to curl them and make it all look pretty! Thank you darling for that!

Merry Christmas lovelies!

Love,
Farah

Outfit || Leather Sweater

december 22, 2013
PARIS2DAY sweater // Zara jeans // Urban Outfitters coat // River Island boots

ph//AnnisaGM

Hi dearies!
Hope you had a blast of a weekend! I spent the whole weekend studying (have an exam today, everyone else are on their Christmas breaks already, but no, we’re not! How crazy!). Though I did manage to sneak out of the house to enjoy a pre-Christmas dinner with the in-laws!

 It was the first time ever I went to the place called Loetje in Amsterdam. They serve the best steak in town! And it was very good indeed! They have a new spot for the ones who are curious: Loetje aan het IJ! It’s in the North of Amsterdam right at the canal. I immediately was hit with some inspiration for some outfit shoots in the summer! For now, it’s just freezing cold. I was lucky that I wasn’t blown away and right into the water haha :).

Speaking about the cold, it’s the perfect weather to hide deep into your clothes and keep yourself warm. However, it’s been a real struggle for me to not look like a dressed up bear covered in just layers of sweaters, knits and shirts and look good instead. It’s those items such as a nice coat, eye-catching boots and the edgy sweater. That is the one item that can add so much to an outfit. That’s when details become more than important.

This sweater is spiced up with some leather on the sleeves and some zippers on the side. I got it from Paris2day and it’s already my favorite knit in my closet! It’s easy to combine, it has a loose and comfy fit and last but not least, the zippers add that little extra on top of it all. Open or zipped, I play with it all the time! The good news is also that they are available in multiple colors! Get yours here !
Love, Farah

Outfit || Black Fur

december 20, 2013
H&M leather jacket // Forever 21 faux fur gilet & boots // Pazzion bag // Kiko lipstick
Hi lovelies!
Hope you’re all doing fine! I’ve just had a crazy busy week and to make it all a bit harder, I was ill as well. Therefore, I didn’t blog as much as I usually do! Hope to be back on track very soon! For now, I have to study the whole weekend for another exam on Monday. However, it’s also Friday and the weekend is coming up, so we have to make some time for some fun things as well! Tonight, I will be enjoying the Amsterdam Light Festival from a boat with my in-laws! And tomorrow I’ll be having a pre-Christmas dinner! So much food during these Christmas days!
About the outfit! Once you go black..you never go back! An all black outfit is one of my favorites. I have been searching for the perfect sleeveless black faux fur coat for a very long time. When I was in NYC a month ago, I found this beauty at  Forever21! The leather jacket is too cold for this time of the year, but combining it with this faux fur completes the look and it keeps you warm! Tights with a print give a look that little playful aspect, which can be sexy and just girly at the same time!
Hope you’ll have a wonderful weekend!
Love, Farah

Outfit || Summer Reminiscing

december 12, 2013

 We’re way into December and the Dutch have had their first festivities all done. Now, we’re all heading into Christmas and New Year’s Eve! Can’t wait! Here in the Netherlands, we have a two week break from school/uni for Christmas and New Year’s. Lots of people take this break as an opportunity to either get to an even colder place to enjoy some skiing and snowboarding, or people ditch the cold and go to a place where it’s warm and sunny. For me, as I don’t have any plans to go to a warmer or colder place, it’s time to reminisce about last summer. 
As I’ve shown you before, I went to Singapore and Indonesia last summer. I shot several outfits in Indonesia: one on Samosir Island, Sumatra, at the Prambanan and Borobudur temples, and one other outfit on the Gili Islands. However, I still have a few other outfits that I haven’t shown you yet! 
Beaches, clear blue waters, a burning sun… 
So how about it, wanna go reminisce with me?
Love,
Farah

Outfit || Shades of Grey

december 10, 2013

Hi dearies!
Do you recognize the feeling of being hidden underneath all your clothes during the winter? I don’t like that feeling, I can tell you! Since it’s not officially winter yet, I refuse to wear so many layers of clothes. Instead, I choose to wear clothes that do accentuate the curves and the shape of the body. This peplum coat that I got last year, still works for me! Sophisticated and very chic. 
Grey is one of the it colors of this season. Will it be a continuation of the book 50 Shades of Grey? (still haven’t read that one though!) No one can say. What we actually can say, is that grey is a perfect soft color that is easy to combine with a lot of other colors (think of pink and yellow) or just..other shades of grey :D.
For this look, I’m wearing a new top from Vanilia, which I got at the sample sale a couple of weeks ago. Combined it with my grey pants I got last year, which are also from Vanilia. Vanilia is a Dutch brand with beautiful, chic, feminine clothing. It could be the little sister of Zara! Well, I’m hooked.
Even the weather was blown away ;)!
Love, Farah

Recap || November

december 8, 2013

The Winter is on its way, but I see a lot of color! That’s the spirit I will try to keep! Mostly, winter times attract me to wear a lot of dark colors, but I think I might go for some color this winter! Especially when the weather is cold and bleak.
I’m very curious! Which one of these six is your favorite one? Let me know!
Love,
Farah

Beauty || Nailcare

december 3, 2013

This is the very first post about beauty that I share with you. I don’t know if it’s going to be a monthly thing, but I wanted to share something different with you.

Nails and hands. Something I should pay more attention to. I have to admit that I don’t do it well enough, nor frequently enough. For my studies, I’m not allowed to wear nail polish. Therefore, I only use nail polish when there is an event or a special occasion. But, with the winter coming, it’s not only about having pretty nails. The cold weather makes my hands very dry. It’s the time to pay more attention to the hands! If you just think a moment about how important your hands are, you’ll realize you really have to treat them with care and love. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do! Using these essential nail and handcare products for beautiful hands.

What are your favorite hand/nailproducts and what do you do to take good care of the hands?
Love, Farah

Events || Swarovski SS 2014

december 2, 2013

Would it surprise if I told you I was very excited for this event?! The ones who have followed me for a longer time know that I love Swarovski! I have done some serious Swarovski talk earlier on the blog (see for example here)!
The Summer/Spring collection is stunning with beautiful statement pieces and beautiful colors. It’s¬† the first time that Swarovski brings a tribute to art. Native culture and art comes together, which results in beautiful items based on earthy colors and primary bright colors. The collection draws her inspiration also¬†from nature depicted by pure and intense blue tints.
 Even the drinks and the bites were in classy Swarovski style. An atmosphere I could hang around for hours.
And of course Swarovski¬†didn’t let¬†us¬†go home without giving¬†us our own piece of¬†beautiful crystal.¬†See my Instagram/Facebook¬†account to see the beautiful gift!
Love, Farah
