GIRLS IN FILIPPA K: CHLOE LEENHEER

She is an actress and photographer and apart from wrapping up the last month of the highly successful theater play War Horse in Antwerp, Chloé Leenheer also previously starred in our Denim Stories. As she's currently on stage 7(!) times a week - busy bee much? - you can imagine how excited I was when she agreed to play a role in our Girls in Filippa K serie(s).

CUSTOM MADE DENIM

Yep, here we go again. Another story about denim. But this time it's a little bit different...

Finding the 'perfect' (as in REALLY perfect) pair of jeans is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Or maybe even worse. There is just so much that needs to be right - color, fit, washing, etc., etc., etc. - and so much that can go wrong. Wearing the 'wrong' pair of jeans is like wearing an ill fitting bra. It just doesn't look very good. But there's obviously a lot of personal taste/preferences involved as well.

#SHADESOFCOACH

A few weeks ago - on our first 'ok for bare legs' day of the year - I visited Haarlem to test drive my new Coach sunglasses (two pairs of them, to be exact) for a project called #ShadesofCoach. Haarlem is a littler and quieter version of Amsterdam and I would say that the best part about it is that it's super close to the beach. During Summer time I tend to go there a lot. To get out of my own city and to soak up the sun. And it's just a 15 minute train ride away.

THE MIGHTY MUD MASK

Basic, fresh and no nonsense. Ideally, the package of this mud mask from Formula 10.0.6 sums exactly what's inside. This is the latest addition to my beauty shelf, and even though the bright hue clashes with fellow products on there... She's a keeper. There, I said it!

STYLE TALK WITH ROMY

As a fulltime model Romy de Vries is constantly surrounded by the newest of the newest. While it might drive others crazy (and turn into a wanna have it all mode?), Romy says it actually helps her make the right choices. Her wardrobe already made it to Vogue once, but with the Thunderbirds and Barbarella as her current inspiration, we thought it was time for a Style Talk with us.

HOW TO GET RID OF COLD SORES

Time to talk beauty taboos. From teeny tiny red blisters to full on breakouts, we’ve (almost) all seen or had them: cold sores. And while the majority of people carry the virus and another significant amount experiences them, they tend to go hand in hand with shame. Oh, what to do with these unwanted guests?

Nasty comments are one thing, physical pains are another. Since beauty is more than cosmetics and trends, I felt like it was time to shed a light on an often underexposed topic. From preventative measures to simple treatments, here are some first aid tips to nip cold sores in the bud.

LOUIS VUITTON CRUISE 2016

Ok, can we talk a bit about the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016 show that took place in Palm Springs last night?

I very rarely suffer from FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), but last night I really wished - very hard - I could magically transport myself straight to a seat at the show. Standing would have been fine too.

BLUE HUES

Keeping things short for today as I am still recovering from a two week fever thing (cold sores included et all, bummer), but I am LOVING the blue-ish hues Pernille threw together in this look. Super simple, but it works!
