My Face on a Painting?

August 12, 2016

Even though we are so used to seeing our faces in pictures, it is still weird to see yourself on a painting. Is it because of the artistic interpretation? The fact that you know it probably took hours to create? The skills of the artist? I don’t know, maybe it’s a combination of everything. What I do know that it definitely felt weird (but cool!) to see myself in 5 paintings from the artist Toshy. Continue Reading

Giveaway: Orogold 24 Karat Peeling worth €170,- !

November 3, 2015
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b0j4oKrqu0

Hey guys, it’s Giveaway time again!

After the great succes of my Michael Kors Giveaway last month, now it’s time for a beauty product! Especially with the cold weather coming up it is super important to take good care of your skin, that’s why I tested this amazing product of Orogold for you! After reading the raging reviews I just had to try it so I went to Orogold and tested their 24 Karat Peeling. As a model I get many products on my face and I’ve already tested many masks, peelings, creams, serums and more, but honestly… I never experienced anything like this before!

My Experience

After only 5 minutes of having the Orogold peeling on my face, the dead skin simply rolled off my face and felt super soft and clean… no throwing water in my face over and over again? No scrubbing? No nothing? What is this sorcery?! The beautician of Orogold then gave me a daycream for my face, and also applied a bit of the cream on my inner wrist. It was unbelievable to see that the cream on my face was competely absorbed within just 2 minutes, while it took more than 10 minutes for the skin on my wrist! Soon I walked out of the store with a fresh and clean feeling, 100% satisfied. Orogolds 24 Karat Peeling doesn’t only do a perfect job on the cleaning of the skin, it also improves the results of the rest of your beauty routine: tested and double approved!

PFW Streetstyle: Black Swan

October 6, 2015

IMGL1858_phixrGood news lovelies! Today I was able to shine in one of the designs by Michelangelo Winklaar, lucky me! This time I am going all black with his ‘black ballerina dress’ in combination with a bodysuit which I got at Oysho: they fit together so perfectly that you can barely even notice I am wearing two different pieces! This outfit is a great example of combining designer pieces with affordable mass production: all you have to do is to get creative and to mix & match!

Since the dress is already such a strong look on own it’s barely even necessary to accessorize. You don’t want to overload the outfit, so it sufficed to add one purple statement ring and a beautiful Mange purse.

Today I visited the Agnes B show, as well as Paul & Joe, and I had the BEST time ever interviewing people before and after the show in collaboration with the Modelboard Crew! The videos will be online soon so keep an eye out for them!

 

Lots of Love,

Lynn

SS16 John Galliano – Back to British

October 5, 2015

After being out for a while, it is finally time for the return of John Galliano to the worlds fashion capital, Paris! The SS16 Collection is inspired by his roots in Great Britain, as we can see several references to British history, as well as to modern London. John Galliano portrays a unique mixture of statuesque uniforms with British rock and intimate lace work.

As the models walk down the runway we see lots of blazers and trousers with strong lines, creating a powerful and edgy feel. The cuts are perfectly tailored to the female body and the materials follow flawlessly. On the other hand, we also see a lot of delicate transparent lace with subtle embellishments. These inherently feminine designs are edged up with Brit-inspired caps, flat shoes and a badass attitude. Other notable designs are romantic cocktail dresses with a deep V-neck, several Brit-inspired checkered suits, and long organza dresses which flow beautifully over the catwalk. A returning motive is the use of polka dots, which can be found in most of the outfits.

The use of color is mainly black & white. However, there are several color accents such as beige, blue, army green and bright orange. John Galliano manages to create a coherent overall style by playing with these color accents throughout the presentation. The make-up and the hair are very neutral with an emphasizes on brushy brows, probably in order to don’t make the looks too feminine. After all: John Galliano is going for subtle Brit Rock.

While John Galliano is commonly known for his over-the-top carnavalesque flamboyantly eccentric style, this SS16 collection was more subtle and can immediately be taken to the streets. A piece of London was present in Paris today, and the lovers of British fashion will be standing in line for this unique collection. Welcome back John Galliano!

PFW Streetstyle: Heel Rockin’

October 4, 2015

Hey there Loves!

Today was an amazing day! Among others I visited the John Galliano show (first row!) for which I obviously had to wear some kickass outfit. Leaving the dresses and skirts behind for today, I decided to go for a more edgy look. With a grey high waisted skinny jeans, a red lumberjack and a black leather croptop from Ulrike Verding I created a comfy streetwise outfit. To make this look ready for fashion week, I put on these amazing designer shoes from Chris van den Elzen. The heels are in fact created with a 3D printer and it takes DAYS before he is able to finish them! These booties are insanely high so you can’t walk on them for too long, but it’s totally worth the pain, trust me!

Now I’ll be on my way to join a party in Matignon so see you tomorrow again!

Big kiss,
Lynn

PFW Streetstyle: Statement Day

October 2, 2015

day2_4_phixr
A skater skirt with knee-high socks and black derby shoes is ALWAYS a good combination! I decided to make the minimalistic ‘cute & classy’ look a bit more interesting with a statement shirt: more personality = more fun!

Anyone who knows me even just a little bit knows that I’m a big fan of power  women: strong women who follow their dreams and work hard to get there… you have my infinite respect! This outfit is my tribute to you, and actually it has a little story to it. I got this limited edition T-shirt while visiting a Cosmopolitan event in Amsterdam some months ago, it was all about the empowerment of women and I met some amazing and inspiring people there. They organized several reading around the topic ‘Confidence’. It got me thinking about what this word actually means to me.

For me confidence is not about not having any doubts, it’s about having doubts but trusting in your own capacities to reach your goal. I had more than enough doubts about becoming a fashion reporter…

I am not schooled in fashion, I don’t have any experience (yet), there are so many professionals out there, what if I will make a fool out of myself? Did those doubts stop me from trying it anyway? Hell no!

Day2_2_phixr

 

  •  Can I write English? Yes I can
  •  Can I give an opinion about fashion? Most definitely
  •  Can I learn how to improve my skills? Duhh

Seems legit… let’s do this! I guess in this situation I would classify myself as a power woman, and to be honest: I really like to think so! How would you describe confidence or a power woman? Share your
thoughts!

Is there anything you want to know about me? Don’t hesitate to ask it here

Love,
