Heya! Today was a calm day compared to yesterday, I really needed that! Tomorrow Sascha and I are going to a Halloween party! I think my outfit is so nice, so hopefully I’m able to take some pictures with proper daylight – guess not so perhaps I’ll take pictures another day. I’m listening to this, I love it; I need that mohawk beanie, haha. Until then, my pink beanie from last year will do;) It’s such a nice combination with my new blue jacket. Looks like I’m able to wear the jacket for a bit longer than I thought, since warmer days are coming!

Oohh what a day, we just finished evening dinner! For half a day I was working on the lab, then I went to Kensington for a long meeting until about 6pm, and after that I met with Sascha to go Halloween shopping. We decided to meet at some point in the underground, and luckily we found each other right away – luckily, ’cause if you don’t , it’s going to be very difficult since there is no wifi down there. When we arrived at the shop, there was huge queue, haha, but it went fast and we had enough to discuss about the day :) We went through the store until 9pm; we tried a couple things and had a laugh about all the funny costumes and accessories, and of course we bought some stuff! Then, finally, we went home and it was already past 10pm when I started to make dinner. I kept it simple: salmon and scrambled eggs with spinach. It’s one of those dishes I like to make when I want to eat quick! And noww, just going through the pictures that we took recently; wearing my new blue faux leather jacket. I ordered the jacket at Stylemoi, like the holographic skirt. It such a nice variation to the black leather jacket. Rest of the pictures will follow tomorrow :)

I’ve seen a lot of holographic at London Fashion Week shows, and I definitely liked it. So I got kind of excited when I found this awesome holographic skirt at Stylemoi! Regarding the cold winter around the corner: I think this skirt will look really nice with black tights and some boots! And of course, it’s suitable for a night out. Who’s up for holographic!

This evening we decided to go out for a romantic dinner ;) We had never been to this restaurant before, but it was really nice; see it for yourself – or try it yourself at Le Palais Du Jardin (located in the Westfield Shopping Centre).

Today Sascha and I went to explore Battersea. Upon changing from one underground line to the other, we noticed that the line we needed was not in service, sooo we decided to walk a bit longer to go there anyway. For some reason I felt like wearing a grey trouser, but I happen to have none here in London; the only grey trouser I could find was my 3/4 trainings legging. Then I decided to wear the legging, and pair it up with high socks. Ooh and that’s my new coat I’m wearing! Yeah I’m liking this grey :)

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 ;)
