Hi all! Today I was wearing all black – again – ’cause I went to a casting. I usually wear all black for castings because… models in general seem to do this, so I just go with the flow :P For the makeup it’s easy; you don’t wear it. Which is good, ’cause I rarely wear makeup anyway, just for parties. Before I went to the casting, I went to uni. You might wonder why I need to go to uni in the weekends, so perhaps I can try to explain: I work on the laboratory with cells. You might now these round transparent dishes from chemistry, in these kind of dishes I keep the cells. And…. cells are like pets, they need food, and a clean “cage” every now and then, or it this case a new dish. The cells that I have need new food every day, and a new dish every two days. So yeah, that’s what I need to do in the weekends when I go to uni, and sometimes more stuff on the lab as well. After uni I took some pictures from my outfit before the casting, then changed outfit and went to the casting. After that Sascha and I had lunch in central London and enjoyed the nice day. We still don’t have Halloween outfits, aarghh, the party is next week! I’m gonna check online now!

Heya! I just got home from uni, but I’m about to leave again to go to a meeting at the South Kensington Campus. This meeting is just for people that do research with stem cells, like me! At the meeting a couple professors will talk about their research and there’s the opportunity to meet like-minded researchers in the field. So let’s see what that’s all about!

Hi all! Today I went to the South Kensington Campus for an introduction session on my 4 year PhD programme. I got to know what is expected of me the next 4 years. Afterwards there was a reception with nice food. Apparently I need to follow multiple courses during this 4 years – I thought I was just going to work on the laboratory. Ooh well, I can decide on a few topics like management, statistics, lecturing, presenting, and more of that. I will definitely take the statistics course, while I think it can be very useful. The other courses I don’t know yet, perhaps lecturing.  After uni Sascha and I went Halloween-outfit-hunting and just a bit of shopping. Now chilling in front of the laptop – which apparently is a sign of the perfect relationship, haha. I read it on Facebook, a whole list  of things that apply to “the perfect relationship”, perhaps you’ve seen it. Other things were “she makes him a sandwich” – true- , “he gives her a back rub” -true- ,”never judge one other or get jealous” -true-. Most of them were true btw,  haha. Well, we’re going good so far, almost 5 years together! Speaking of perfect relationships, we just watched a Dutch tv show in which comedian John Cleese spoke about the perfect marriage. According to the comedian, you shouldn’t take everything so serious! I guess that makes sense. Okay, that’s enough on the relationship stuff ;) I just found these pictures of the Lui’s Womenswear SS15 collection online. I think they’re so cool, and the shoot was really fun as well! Aahh tomorrow Friday, it’s been a busy week! Although I need to go to uni in the weekend too, haha, it just keeps going. I definitely don’t have a 9 to 5 job!

Some autumn/winter inspiration (+ random old-school Casio watch, it’s so cool!) to feel a bit better on cold and rainy days. I really want one of those grey comfi trousers like in the pictures! Right now I’m snuggled in this cosy cardigan, and we’re gonna watch The Wolf Of Wallstreet (I haven’t seen it yet, Sascha has, but he doesn’t mind to see it again).

Can’t get enough of this amazing bag ♥ Today I found the perfect winter jacket to match with it! It’s grey, (faux) furrrry, and so nice and warm. Probably not the best for rainy days, but at least it’s got a hood. Going to uni already feels like I never had the 3 month holidays; the working days are passing by so fast! Busy days at uni, after that usually going out to the beautiful city of London or do some shopping, have dinner, watch a Dutch tv show and crash in front of the laptop. Our desk is so small,  we’re nearly on each others lap, really cosy ;) Every evening I get to learn something new, ’cause Sascha likes to look up random stuff and teach me. This evening I learned/am learning about the UK underground system; how it developed over the years, how our nearby tube station looked like 15 years ago, what the first tube map looked like, and moreee, haha. I tend to forget stuff like that so quick, my general knowledge of the world isn’t the best – although there are times when I even surprise myself, in a good way. We don’t have a tv, so that isn’t helping either – I used to watch the news every morning. Anyway, hope you had a good day ;)

Today wearing all black; with a touch of green in my scarf (from last year). This morning I had to go to uni, yes, I work in the weekends too! After that Sascha and I went strolling through London, along the Big Ben, Leicester square, Covent Garden, and enjoyed the nice weather. Now we’re listening to nineties hits, haha, private nineties party! How cool are nineties parties!? But I guess the next party will be Halloween. I still need to get an outfit, but I guess I’ll just go to H&M; I noticed they had a few costumes. Are you celebrating Halloween? I never did it in the Netherlands, since the Dutch don’t tend to celebrate it a lot. It’s more American/British I guess.

My outfit today, with my new bag! This bag is soooo nice! Today I went shopping for fabrics; I brought my sewing machine to the UK and want to make some stuff myself! The first thing I have in mind is a trouser, although I have never done it before. The problem is.. I think I forgot the power plug of the machine in the Netherlands! Ooh haha, while I’m writing this I just noticed another plug from the camera battery charger right in front of me, and it’s the right plug for the sewing machine! I’ve been looking for the right plug the whole time since I noticed I forgot it!! Woohoo, so I can start making the trouser! I already bought the fabric and cut the pattern. I’m so curious how this will turn out; my first “project”!

I decided on the bag that I saw yesterday! The salesgirl already said to me “aahh you came back for the bag”, haha. It’s sooo amazing! I can’t wait to wear it, although I’m really scared to get stains or scratches on it.. getting curious yet? This is the bag! Soon to be seen in all my outfits ;) Now over to the picture below, quite funny to see this totally different look! I received this picture yesterday, from a shoot a long time ago when I had my eyebrows (and hair) bleached. It’s so different from my current look! I asked Sascha what he liked better, he said my current look. That’s the right answer ;)

Doniaz photoshoot

Such a rainy Wednesday today! I changed my skirt after the pictures, it was too cold. After uni Sascha and I went shopping, to find some new shoes for Sascha. We found some nice shoes and I found two amazinggggg bags! Now I’m thinking which of the two I should buy :) I definitely need a new one, ’cause my every day bag is literately falling apart – the one from Chicwish, I’ve used it so much! I might check again tomorrow.. oohh why do we live next to the shopping centre, haha.

This is what my hair looks like now, after toning yesterday! It’s pretty much my natural colour, so I can start growing my roots, at least, I hope so. Unfortunately I used a semi-permanent dye, so I assume this colour is going to fade unless I touch up.

Today I bought a hanging shoe storage, really convenient! Next weekend Sascha and I will continue to cleanup the apartment – we live in a small  apartment so it must be tidy to live comfortable. There is still a pile of books on the floor and random stuff – that needs a fixed place – lying everywhere.  Tomorrow we’ll both go to uni. It will be Sascha’s first day at the new university, so really excited!
