A Moving Birthday in a Yellow Hue

 Hi lovelies!

Another year has passed by and the number 26 is a fact! I can’t believe it. Maybe because I don’t feel/act like a 26 year-old (except for the fact that I LOVE sleeping for HOURS and skip parties to get my sleep), or maybe I just don’t want to get older.  I always have to get used to the idea that years pass by so fast. Or just the fact that I’m already Continue Reading…

BIRTHDAY || Celebrating Forever 25!!!

april 17, 2014

Ph//AnnisaGM

My sweetest readers, 

TODAY is the day! The day that I turn 25! 
The 2 and the 5. O M G! I cannot believe that I’m actually 25! I’m so happy to celebrate my birthday a little bit with you! Let me tell you a story…
I remember the day that I was a little girl. I loved wearing pink dresses and everything else that was cute. Now, as a 25 year-old woman, nothing has changed! I hope that I will always stay that little girl that can enjoy the little things in life and see the world through the eyes of a kid: positive and full of energy. But besides that, it’s also a moment to realize that I’m a grown up woman. Looking back on the years, I always sought out to reach my goals and my dreams. After years of struggle, I got into the program I have always dreamed of: dental school. Why am I telling you this? It’s because every year when I blew out a candle for my birthday, I wished for getting admitted to the dental program. Without exaggerating, I did this ever since the year I turned 7. 
I believe in those wishes. I believe in dreams. 
And until you get there, it will be a path of falling (hard) and making sure that you get back up again and go for it — again. It is you who has to have the confidence and faith, and to go on. And remember, age is just a number. It doesn’t matter if you are a little kid or a granny. And here I am, already 25, not a kid anymore, but a young adult who still has a lot of dreams to reach for. I will blow out a candle on my birthday every year, and every year I will believe in my wish.
 I want to thank all of my loved ones who have been supporting me in any kind of way. And of course, my sweetest readers, without you this all wouldn’t be possible. I’m so grateful for all of you and I hope you will stay by me forever!
Just the way like I will stay forever 25 ;).

Love, Farah

Outfit || Flaring Embroidered (and the B E S T birthday E V E R)

april 18, 2013

O H M Y! What a wonderful birthday it was!!! I’m still amazed! My boyfriend had planned the best birthday ever! First, he took me to ‘I-don’t-know-where’, until I found out we were about to see an exhibition about Jean Paul Gaultier. Could you make me more happy than watching haute couture on my birthday?

Well, he could! When we came back to Amsterdam, he took me to a restaurant, ‘the Bierfabriek’ which literally means the Beer Factory. Now you probably think ‘say what?!‘ Yes, the Bierfabriek :D. They brew their own speciality beers, but more importantly, (my friend Annisa has been telling me about that place over and over again) because they serve the best chicken and fries in town! So I couldn’t be happier because I was going to eat fries on my birthday! Hahaha, I’m such a kid right :D.

But..after we had entered the restaurant, I suddenly heard some crazy people yelling and shouting. So I thought, ‘what-the-heck-is-going-on-over-here’?!?! Then….I started to recognize people! There it was, a  S U P R I S E  party! Kidding me?!?!?! My eyes started to tingle and little tears started to stream down my cheeks – frozen for a lifetime and crying within seconds. I was in serious shock for about a minute or two (my friends said that I was just standing for at least 10 minutes :p).

And then the little streams became waterfalls and I started to really cry. All my friends were sitting there waiting for me to make my birthday the best ever. And I’ve been spoiled like WOW!

The funny part of it was an item of my ‘petit’ wishlist. It was definitely petit cause I got not one, but TWO white Zara shoppers that were part of my wishlist! Not to worry, I will exchange one bag for the white sandals!

Of course I will write a goodies post about all the gifts that I got! So happy with them! Most of them are white (read: my latest obsession), my friends know me too well 🙂 I’m so so so thankful for everything and to have all of you in my life!

They even suprised me with a nomnomnom birthday pie after dinner! It was just perfect..every single bit of it!

Now something about this outfit! I found this super cute white embroidered top (read: currently obsessed with white) at H&M two weeks ago and it caught my eyes immediately! The fitting and the details are more than perfect!

I combined them with my good old flared jeans. Flared jeans, it’s a love or hate relationship! 
Do you like them?
Love, Farah

BIRTHDAY!

april 17, 2013

Today, it’s my B I R T H D A Y ! ! ! I welcome you 24!

A year has passed by. A year full of joy, happiness, wisdom, knowledge, adventures, but also a year with some difficult periods. But I guess that’s normal. The thing I always keep in mind and try to do is to stay positive and realistic. It’s good to have dreams and to always try to achieve them, but, it’s also good to be down to earth and think clearly.

I’m definitely a dream hunter. After many years of hesitating, last year, I finally decided to start a fashion blog. A dream that has become reality now. And I’ve not regretted it, not even for a second. However, it’s the support of the people around me that has made it become reality. And therefore, I will not make a wish for myself on my birthday, but I wish my family, my friends and of course my biggest love, all the happiness and luck in this world. Love you all!

My love and my bff took these beautifulll photos in a studio and I’m so happy with how they’ve turned out! The balloons, the confetti, they made it all complete! Of course I have to end with saying something about ‘fashion’ :D, don’t you just loooooove the dress?!
Love, Farah

What I’m wearing:
Dress: Mango (here)
Heels: Steve Madden
Accessories: H&M
Hair and make-up (thank you!): AnnisaGM
