TO ALL OF YOU

After blogging for about eight years it is time for a new chapter, something completely new.

TO ALL OF YOU

OFFICE HUNTING

Tags: ,

Whenever I tell someone I work from home, they respond with something like ‘that is perfect, so you (can) work in your pj’s all day!’. Well it is possible, but it doesn’t really work that way.

OFFICE HUNTING

ORANGE BLOSSOM

Tags: , ,

The biggest benefit of having your workspace in a store is that it is not hard to get inspired. The biggest disadvantage is that it is super tempting to leave with an empty wallet at the end of the day. Ever since my boyfriend and I moved in together, I have been on constant hunt for things that make the apartment look super cozy. Now, what is easier than to add scented candles, tons and tons of them? My problem with scented candles is that I am not too fond of the regular vanilla and lavender ones you usually bump into. These ‘Orange Blossom’ ones are just special enough and can be found at The Collector (Eerste van der Helststraat 1D in Amsterdam) and I can tell you they smell gorgeous. There is also Thyme, Mown Grass and Jasmin available and I am waiting for the day my favorite -Fig- gets restocked. You can find them here.

WHERE THE F* IS LISA?

It’s actually been a while since I moved into my new office. Since October, I’ve been renting two desks (one desk for me, one desk for…you?) at the TheCollector.com HQ and it has been gooood ever since the first day. This space is huge and so inspirational, sometimes a little hard to not go through those shopping racks all the time, since TheCollector.com is an online store. So, one desk for me, one desk for…you? Could be. Some of you already noticed Lisa Galesloot and her work hasn’t appeared on the blog for a while, and that’s because she’s no longer working at the afterDRK HQ. After about 8 months, it was time for her to move on and that’s exactly what she did by getting a new job. We’re still making a video for my blog every month from now on, but we’re no longer a team on an everyday basis. So I’m looking for a new intern/assistent from January/February to be helping me out with the blog and all projects around it. Ik zoek iemand die Mooie kiekjes van mij kan schieten. Als bovenstaand niet gelukt is, er met Photoshop nog iets moois van kan maken. Met de regel ‘wie het eerst bij de postbode is, mag het pakketje houden’ kan leven, behalve als er mijn naam op staat. Niet vies is van een drankje of 7. Zowel in het Engels als Nederlands kan klessebessen. Geboren is met de Franse Vogue in haar hand. Weet wie Phoebe Philo,┬áLazaro Hernandez, Jack McCullough en Alexander Wang zijn. Kan Tweeten, Facebooken, mailen en Instagrammen, allemaal tegelijk. Mijn Brabantse accent (dat slechts af en toe boven komt drijven) kan verstaan. Hard kan fietsen. Je krijgt ervoor terug Een flexibele stage op een inspirerende werkplek in Amsterdam, waar je als creatieveling je ei kwijt kunt. Je krijgt een kijkje in de keuken van de modewereld in binnen- en buitenland en natuurlijk een stagevergoeding. Interesse? Stuur je motivatie en CV (en eventueel portfolio) incl. foto naar sabrina@afterdrk.com met in de onderwerpregel ‘stage’.

AFTERDRK HQ

It seems like I promised pictures of the afterDRK headquarters ages ago, but better late than never right? So here they are, this is where the magic happens about four days a week. So nice to be having a place to go to in the morning, keeps my head organized. The ‘moodboard’ behind me is still a little empty, I’m currently filling it up with images from cool lookbooks, photos, invitations and cards that I receive. ph/ Lisa Galesloot
