Jewelry; Liezle Fourie

Hi lovely readers, I wanted to share my new buy! I got this bracelet in the cutest shop in Kalk Bay, South Africa. It is locally made by a talented jewelry designer Liezle Fourie. I loved the fact that it is a locally made piece, but not the "typical stuff you'd expect from Africa. Check out her facebook page for the gorgeous (funky) stuff she makes. Her husband is also a designer and makes very cool mirrors, unfortunately I couldn't find his design. I hope she will start selling her jewelry online so I can broaden my jewelry collection. XO

Outfit Post; Orange Crush

Lovely readers, While in South Africa 2 weeks ago, I had noticed that they had a lot of kayena trees with a lot of flowers I was really impressed. Now back in Holland I totally forgot how pretty the huge rose bushes are. Most of them started blooming while we were gone. Now I remember how I was impressed the first year I moved here, I saw them in Holland and for the first time of my life experienced four seasons. I love spring the most, with all the pretty flowers. It really makes you appreciate the warm weather after a cold winter, which I also love! XO

This must have been my first big cocktail ring. I bought it a few years ago on Curacao. It used to have a lady bug on it but a few weeks ago it fell off and I didn't find it! :(

Le Pain Quotidien + Neutral color blocking

Happy Sunday! If there is one thing I LOVE... it's snacking... and brunch. Le Pain Quotidien is a franchise that I first discovered in Brussels, Belgium. They present their food very cute I find. Since I discovered it in NY as well, I've been there several times and now I found out they have it in Amsterdam as well! I've been twice in the passed week. I love their breakfast and they make delicious crostini's with dips. Black bean dip, babaganoush, hummus, white bean dip with a glass of wine in the sunny afternoon...perfect! I have not really had many of their sandwiches, but you either like the bread or you don't. It is heavier, kind of sour dough bread. Either way I'd keep going back for their crostini's! Check their website for which country's you'll find them and try 'em some time! 
A little shot of what I wore last friday. I call it "neutral color blocking". If the vibrant colors aren't really your thing, opt for "new" basics like camel, taupe, beige. My shirts auto-colorblock allowed me to add in one pop of color. I got this shirt last week and wasn't sure if I like it, but it grew on me and now I love it! XO
