belated Fashion Friday: LBD and ultimate x mas party dress

So there wasn't a post on wednesday, and I apologize for that. I have been very busy and that is why I didn't post a post on fashion friday so here is my fashion friday post. I have decided that you can never have too many Little Black Dresses especially now all the christmas parties are coming up. I saw this Elizabeth and James dress which I spotted on net-a-porter. Elizabeth and James is a fashion brand by the famous Olsen twins. I really admire their fashion sense, and love their clothes for their simplicity but still have the little details on their items. The lbd pictured you can wear with a nice embellished belt and simple jewelry. Or splashing out with bulky jewelry and amazing shoes. It is long-sleeved which is perfect for this cold winter weather.

The next dress I want to share with you is this Alexander McQueen dress. This dress is just so amazing, the color, the print, the shapes and the nice v-neck shape which shows a little cleavage. Although is is also quite short, It think it still is quite covered up. Pair it with a nice pair of black heels and it will look like you have legs like Heidi Klum. This dress unfortunately is out of my price range at over 5,000 euros but if I find a nice cheaper similar style dress. I will definitely buy it without a doubt.

Music Monday: Robyn - Dancing On My Own

So for this music monday I have chosen for Robyn and the song Dancing on my own. To be honest, I don't know much about her. Even though I love music I prefer listening to it rather than actually looking up everything about the artist. She has been around for quite some time now, and her music is very electro pop-ish. I quite like it although I can listen to most types of music. I hope you like this song as much as I do.

Fashion Friday: Bugs and Lanvin

As promised this is my fashion friday post. I told that I would post what I ordered. As I haven't received my packages from both theOutnet and ASOS I will post what I received in the post the other day from H&M.

I managed to get my hands on a Lanvin for H&M piece. It might not be a clothing piece, I am pretty chuffed with what I managed to get my hands on. It is this leather/chain necklace, which can also be used as a belt. (I have tried this myself and it actually looks pretty cool as both neck piece and as a belt.) Also it came in a really nice box, which I love. Another thing that I had to have was the red lipstick, it is just so cute. You can see it in the next two photos, my two items from Lanvin.

One other thing that I have been looking for ever since I spotted it in the H&M magazine winter 2010 edition, is this bug ring. It comes in three different colors and it just amazing and a perfect accessory for a nice little black dress or any other cocktail dress for that matter. Or just a fun accessory for your every day outfit.
It is quite big and as you can see in the following photo I have chosen the ring in red. Although I am very tempted to also get it in green. I have also had a thing for these oversized rings and I definitely think this is a must have for the christmas parties period.

Randomness on Wednesday

On Wednesday's I previously said that I would have a theme on this day. But I have decided that there won't be a them for Wednesday, so any subject can pass by on Wednesday.

Today, I have been busy with fixing this glitch on my laptop. It annoyed me so much, all the thumbnails of my windows media player file disappeared on me. But I have somehow fixed it after many attempts and hours of searching on the net for a solution. 

After yesterday's post, I was browsing on the ASOS website and was tempted to order something after all. I did contain myself and only ordered one item. Now I have told myself that for the next two weeks I am not allowed to order anything online. This is going to be very difficult especially now with Christmas coming up and there are so many tempting offers everywhere. Almost every website has an offer going on. This is going to very difficult. Hopefully I will be the one triumphing at the end of the next two weeks instead of my urge to shop.

Tonight there is a new Apprentice UK episode on, one of my favorite shows on television. Me being a business student myself, find it very funny how some people base their business decision on. And what rationale some have to say. Some people, I just wonder how the heck did you get to be on this show?! Probably for the ratings, anyways this is me going off to watch the show.

Quick lil post

Just a quick post to let you all know that there is a great offer going on at there is free shipping, often only for UK residents but it is now for worldwide shipping as well. If you use the ASOS20 discount code you get 20% off any ASOS brand products. The offer ends today at midnight GMT. I am still hesitating whether or not I should order something or not. Especially after I have ordered stuff from theOutnet and also from the H&M website. I will show the things that I have ordered in Friday's post.

I have found out today that they are expecting it to be -14 degrees Celsius in the Netherlands! I can't believe it is going to be this cold and it is only the beginning of Winter. What is on the agenda next for us? Hopefully I won't have to go out doors that day. Just sit inside and enjoy a cuppa!

Happy shopping!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Ok my music recommendation has nothing to do with snow but it has been snowing all day today. And thought it would be appropriate to have a snow related post title. Basically it has been the first official snow day, snow falling from the sky is a wonderful sight. Seeing all the snow makes me want to go on the slopes again and do some snowboarding, this time though not to end up in the hospital to get an x-ray.

Anyways the post of today is about Cheryl Cole. For the people who don't know her she is one fifth of the girl band Girls Aloud. She is also an X factor UK judge. Her music is quite catchy, her first album, ''3 Words'' was a hit and now her second album, ''Messy Little Raindrops'' is a hit as well. Her first single of her second album ''Promise This'' was a number one hit. My recommendation for today is her second single of her second album called ''The Flood''. It is a nice ballad song, very different from her usual singles. This song has been playing almost non stop for the entire weekend. I hope you will like it as much as I do. Enjoy!

A not so pleasant forecast

So I was just reading up on the news and the weather forecast for tomorrow is looking absolutely awful. They are expecting a lot of snow along with the cold that is already happening. Why I have such a dislike for snow you ask. Well after last year's antics of all the snow, having snow for almost 3-4 months and no normal public transport (a journey that would normally take 3 hours took me 7 hours to get home). I am kinda fed up with it, although I would love to go back on the slopes again.

Last year I went snowboarding for the first time in Glenshee, the environment there was absolutely gorgeous unfortunately it wasn't a very sunny day and apparently it was very icy. I had to quit half way through the day because I had hurt my wrist and apparently I was lucky that I didn't broke it. Which would have been a total disaster because I was in the midst of having coursework and a dissertation to write. But despite all of that I had a great time, can't wait for the next opportunity to come up to go on the slopes.

Anyways I said yesterday that this blog would be a bit more meaningful. Well I was thinking up ideas of what to do with this blog, and I have decided to make a theme days such as music monday and fashion friday. Now all I need is another theme to do blog posts 3 times a week. I need to think of something to do with wednesday, I will sleep on it another night and probably share with you on wednesday. So those will be my main days to post, but if there is a special event or something special I want share I will post on a different day as well.

So I have one more thing to share, for all the fashionistas out there who aren't a member of they are having a free shipping to all destinations which ends tonight at midnight. It is an amazing website with a lot of amazing bargains.

First blog post

Hi and welcome to my first blog post.

My name is Ellen and I am 22 years old and currently living at home in the Netherlands since I have graduated. I graduated at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland. I have created this blog to share my thoughts and share my love for some of my favorite things. This can be a wide range of things but that will be shared in the course of time.

I have done blogs and websites before but I could never maintain them and I am planning to keep this blog going for at least a year. See if I can actually do that. Hopefully you will all enjoy my posts although many will probably make no sense to you or you will think I am crazy.

Anyways enough chat for my first blog post,

xoxox Ellen
