One of my favorite designs so far, this Disaronno wears Etro bottle with colorful paisley print. I’m not going to lie, I like me a drink every now and then. Why not drink in style? The limited edition would work nice as a Christmas gift as well (yes, my mind is already set on Christmas, can’t wait).
Almost Christmas! I don’t know what’s more fun, the few days before Christmas where you’re getting in the mood, there’s lights and decorations everywhere and you’re getting excited, or when it’s actually Christmas. This weekend there were Christmas markets all around the city and I couldn’t resist going there and getting all into the Christmas spirit. Well accompanied by some winter warmers, these earmuffs and gloves that are both conveniently warm as good looking. Loving the purple and faux fur they have.
One of my favorite things to do ever since I moved into my new home is simply chilling on my new roof terrace. I have sunlight there all day, some furniture, and now all I need is to stuff the space with plants, as I like to do with all my spaces. This is from today, wearing a dress from I Shop U, a Swedish online store launched by online magazine I Snap U. I love it when I find online stores that showcase the work of uprising talented designers, and this oversized dress really caught my eye.
I’m also wearing Teva’s. Remember that sandal that suddenly was everywhere in the 90s? Well, it’s back, and I really like this all white version and the idea of wearing these slightly nerdy sandals under an edgy dress like this.
Teva is actually doing a campaign right now asking you to share one of your favorite summer moments with hashtag #OriginalSummer and following them on instagram, and by following those 2 steps you can win a pair of Teva Originals Sandals every week and a trip to the US!
Hence one of my favorite summer moments pictured above, nothing beats the peace and quiet of my own roof terrace, just chilling in the sun.
After first weeks of preparation, a really interesting design process and launch of the collection me and 6 other bloggers designed for Eyelove, an optical retail chain for glasses and sunglasses, here’s a little video recap of the project. My favorite part was actually designing the glasses and thinking about what I wanted them to look like, knowing I could do anything I want. Seeing my designs for the first time definitely was another highlight. And the collaboration being picked up by other media and my readers the way it was meant a lot to me! So thanks for all the support and enthusiasm guys :)

For a feature on Zalando I talked festival fashion and picked some of my favorite items to wear to a festival this, but actually every festival season. As you might expect, I like to keep it simple but edgy. Always sneakers, drawstring backpacks are made for festivals and make sure you bring a cool jacket that will keep you warm at night and that will upgrade your look at the same time. Never forget a cool pair of sunnies! See and shop the Zalando festival feature here, where you’ll also find other bloggers’ picks and tips, and you can also win tickets to Lollapalooza festival in Berlin here!
Before I went to NYC, I shared a sneek peak with you guys on my instagram, when I had an entire crew from Garnier in my (not very big) studio. They were there to film my morning routine, which we thought would be fun to share with my readers and give you a bit of insight into what my mornings look like!
A peek into my life it surely is, even revealing something probably 99% of you have never seen: me without make up. Ehmmm, yes.
Anyways, here’s the video! It shows you my morning routine, which is quite calm and easy, as I’m not one to rush in the morning. It also shows you that I’ve been using the Garnier BB cream for a while now and for me it’s a great product for every day use, especially since I usually don’t want to wear too much make up on my skin. Hope you guys like the video! :)

Excited to finally show you the result of what is a great match: sneaker brand Mercer Amsterdam and yours truly.
Mercer is a design sneaker label founded in Amsterdam, but inspired by both Amsterdam and New York City (‘Mercer’ is a street in Soho where founder Pim Dresen bought his first pair of limited edition sneakers, hence the name). I’ve known the brand for a while now and have always been pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the shoe, the leather and the detailing. You can place the brand somewhere in between exclusive Nike shoes and high end designer shoes: affordable, yet luxurious and limited edition. For this project I teamed up with Mercer Amsterdam to show you my 3 favorite pairs from the SS15 collection, that has insane leather detailing and designs that I immediately couldn’t wait to wear. The pair I’m wearing in the last picture is my absolute favorite, the embossed leather is gorgeous and detailing like that always makes my heart beat faster.
So we took a sunny day, 3 pairs of sneakers, 3 outfits, and Juliane Falkto shoot these amazing pictures in the heart of Amsterdam.
I love how these images reflect both me and my style as the Mercer brand and feeling, which is also why I said it’s a great match. Hope you enjoy looking at these images as much as I do, and definitely check out the Mercer Amsterdam website and online shop here.
