The Fashion Folio’s Gift Guide



I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there are just 12 things I need. I do care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree. I also want you for my own, more than you could ever know. Make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is……

  12. It’s faux fur and über cute! I need these paw mittens… stat! /// Topshop Faux Fur Paw Mittens – €26

Neon Does It


Besides wanting a giant townhouse in a city like Amsterdam, I also know what I want in it! A husband, 2 or 3 kids and dog… and I already figured out what I want it to look like. No Picasso for me… I want to make my house a home with typography! Y’all might not know but I’m very fond of everything graphic and typography is part of it. I’m even considering some online tutorials to learn handlettering. Back to my dreamhouse… I’d really love a neon sign because… what could possibly be more awesome!? Exactly. Even though my dreamhouse is still far far away, I already took the liberty of getting inspired.

Happy monday lovelies!

Sunday Inspiration: Longing For Summer

summer, sun, sea, surfing, biking, skirts, sunnies

The ice cold temperatures and drooly days have been going on for way to long now. I think I speak for the whole Benelux when I say: we’re sick and tired of it all! The sun might be shining in Amsterdam but don’t be fooled: you’ll get blown away by the wind in a second. I’m longing for summer, isn’t it obvious? That’s why I collected a few images on Pinterest. Actually made my sunny cravings even worse but I got inspired as well. Come on sun, you can do it. Come to mama!
