Sneakpeak: THE Weddingdress





As many of you have noticed I kinda lost my passion for blogging, but because I got so many request about showing my wedding (and especially the dress) I decided to dedicate 2 posts to that. Because I don't have the pictures yet I have assembled the rough material from our wedding video to show my dress and some details. It is quite slow to take in all the details, so sorry if it's a little bit boring! When searching for the dress I knew what I didn't want: a strapless princess dress, because that is what about 80% of the brides will wear.
The dress was actually the first thing I choose before all the other things required for a wedding, like a location, hehe. But that also made it very easy to design everything around the wedding dress.

My dress is from Jenny Packham and the style is the Azalea dress. It's very 20's/bohemian style, so I styled everything for the wedding around it. I didn't had a wedding planner and found all the decoration online or made it by myself. I wanted my wedding to be timeless and that in 10 or 20 years you would not recognize it as a typical style for that decade. I styled my hair together with my mother (who used to be a hairdresser) and did my own make-up (I wanted my make up as invisible as possible, so as less as possible)
 I wanted the flowers to look like field bouquets, so slightly messy and with flowers you can find in the nature. I wanted to get married outside in a forest surrounding (which is quite a risk when you live in a country that has so much rain) and in the end it was the hottest day of the year, so we were very lucky! The location where we got married wasn't an official wedding location, so we had to arrange it to become one and hired all the chairs, tables and glassware.
The wedding cake is designed by me and Petra from Cakeworks, and if you look close you see the same roses on the cake as on my wedding shoes ;) The music you hear is the piano version from "Heaven", which was played by a pianist when I walked down the aisle with my father.

After 9 months of planning this day became the most perfect day ever, even better that I hoped and I hope you all enjoy the details too!

Home trend: Redyed rugs


Definitely on top of my wishlist, redyed rugs give your interior an instant splash of personality and color and you won't easily see spots/new damages on them. I especially like the patchwork version and would love to own one in this color.

New Buy: Giuseppe Zanotti Wedding shoes!!!!


And this is why Malaysia was so special! During sunset my boyfriend proposed to me on the Malay beach. And one of the best things about getting married (for me) is dressing up, so it didn't took me long to find the perfect dress and shoes! The dress is by Jenny Packham and really the most beautiful dress I have ever seen. But I have to wait six months before it is finished, so for now I can only enjoy my Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, love, love, love them!

Home: another Interior-loving Housemate


Lately my Pet life had his ups and downs, a while ago my dear bunny Puk passed away, but at an age of (almost) 11 I think I can't complain as rabbits are very sensitive animals. But still the loss is difficult. A few weeks before that I found out that my cat allergy isn't provoked by Siberian cats and after visiting the breeder en sniffing on fur samples for days I decided to take the chance. Just to be sure I have a "safe home" if suddenly my allergy gives problems, but so far everything is good. We named our little boy "Lev" a Russian name and it means "Lion".
It was always a dream to have a big red cat and I couldn't be happier. I found this really cool design cat lounge secondhand (from a cat food coupon action) and to my relief both my cat and bunnys love it! (They even lounge with the three of them together in the small space, so cute!)
I have several climbing tree's in my house that I created by myself as the average cat tree is really ugly or really expensive. Some cat lovers will definitely like this!

Home: The Christmas tree


I am a little bit late (probably because I still was in the Malaysia-mood) but I have finally put up my Christmas tree. I always love to decorate it with a bit more unconventional pieces, like the big "earring" inspired ornaments, feathers and fake blossom flowers. And yes, I like my tree overstuffed with as many things as possible! What color/style is your christmas tree?



I alway buy my christmas accesories after the Christmas season in the sale, so everything is from older seasons and not for sale in the stores anymore, but I got most of my decorations from the Bijenkorf and Global Garden in Heemstede

Housetour # 6: Meet Wies!



A few weeks ago my dear bunny Pien passed away and as much as the pain of such a loss hurt, I decided I didn't wanted my other bunny Puk to be alone as rabbits can not be truly happy without a companion. And because animal shelters are full with unwanted bunny's, I decided to take Puk to the animal shelter and together we choose this lovely girl. I named her "Wiesje" an old Dutch name (as she is a Dutch lop mix)
She couldn't have fitted better in our lives. She loves the attention and freedom she has (her previous owners kept her in a hamster sized cage!!!!) and she adores Puk.
And on top of that she already proven herself to be great in posing for my house tours.
I definitely recommend everyone who ever considers a pet bunny to definitely visit a specialized rabbit shelter!
