Picture Time!

I suppose you can relate and understand me more through pictures and images. Some are on my Instagram and some are not ;P  I find a lot images funny, inspiring. Or just some quotes that I can relate to. Usually I just save those images on to my phone and I don’t post them on my instagram or facebook. But I decided to give some inside and share some words. Tell me what you think? @lostinthegardn

I hope you all lovely people had a charming Christmas this year with lots of presents and food.
I had a lot of fun with this eye fish lens for your phone. I bought it at Hema and I also bought it for my friends and everybody loved it.. you should defiantly check it out! 

Rodney and I decided to take a trip to a designer outlet in Roermond. He wanted to buy a designer bag for his moms birthday and was eyeing a Prada cardholder. The whole getting to Roermond was just one thing, I won’t go into details but we missed two trains because of moi. But we ended up having a blast with the fashion guru, so all was well.

My Fashion Guru

Hello my dearest readers I hope you are all doing well, may it be with your personal life, school or work remember to keep your head up and your heart strong. Today I have inspiring green colors for autumn. First I fell in love with this very warm and cozy COS sweater and later on I bought this Celine trio bag in a green color that I don’t know how to pronounce or spell. Anyways, I was inspired by this green knitted sweater so I started to look for other green items and somehow it all came together. It is not all one color green and that is what I like the most, it kind of represents all green colors of autumn with a pop of my MAC heroine lipstick color( if you were wondering). As always I want to inspire you guys.. as many of you inspire me. I went with these green colors but you can take another color that you like, like burgundy for example, I adore burgundy for autumn… but yeah be inspired!

Sophia Webster mules

I have fallen in love with a Miu Miu sunglass, it was totally made for me to wear. But since Miu Miu does not understand the struggle of being a student, I have to do it with what I have. As you can see here I am wearing my monkey glasses that I forgot all about. They look banging, also kinda look like the Miu Miu’s that I want… I was thinking about giving myself a very early Christmas present but then I have  all of these bills bills bills to pay, so yeah, never mind. But girl, are you seeing the Sophia Webster mules that I am rocking over here.. let me tell you one thing that was the greatest bargain ever!

Afternoon on a hill...

I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one...

I'll cover you in flowers someday (New Hair)

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,

With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”

Every day kind of shoes

 Hello lovely people,

Today I wanted to share a new pair of Nike’s . These simple black beauties are what I call my every day kind of shoes. Yeah, here in Holland you can pretty much say that winter is coming, even though the weather out here is acting bipolar right know, one day it’s sunny the other day it’s cold as fudge! Anyhow, I needed new shoes! My lovely Vens did their part and now they have earned their rest in peace.

Saving money for shoes?!?!

‘Choosing quality over quantity’ I said to myself, and so it began.

If you are close to me, than you probably know my obsession with designer shoes and bags. Not that I own many but the obsession is never the less. Before is start. I must say, you really have to be careful with obsessing about materialistic thing. Because sometimes it will eat you up and make you value the wrong things in life, ‘damn you youtube unboxing’. But since this is my current dilemma in life that I am dealing with( not really I am not that superficial). Let me put it like this ‘one of my 99 problems’, so I thought why not share this with my lovely readers.

@chocolatevanillabt, @lostinthegardn

Daily outfits of Vanilla on @chocolatevanillabt and for materialistic obsession follow @lostinthegardn. Hi guys, we are thinking about taking more pictures and sharing them with you. Just simple daily pictures. And expending more, blog wise. Not only posting outfit posts but also explaining more, talking, discussing fashion and style subjects. I suppose being more evolved with our readers. Sometimes you just want to talk style or obsess about something with someone. Yeah, that's the idea.

These boots ain't made for walking

These boots ain’t made for walking, and certainly not made for marching, but babe one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you. This is the first  time that I am wearing them and they are more comfortable then I expected, yet they are not marching boots.

It’s like risk versus reward, baby

“Only those who play win. Only those who risk and dare win. 
Daring also means to act, however, and if you are not willing to act, then you have already lost the game.''

My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea..

Ah! what pleasant visions haunt me
As I gaze upon the sea!
All the old romantic legends,
All my dreams, come back to me. 

Till my soul is full of longing
For the secret of the sea,
And the heart of the great ocean
Sends a thrilling pulse through me.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Debate is masculine, conversation is feminine.

Words are beautiful but restricted. They're very masculine, with a compact frame. But voice is over the dark, the place where there's nothing to hang on: it comes from a part of yourself that simply knows, expresses itself, and is.
Jeff Buckley

About last night ‘ Justin Nozuka’

About last night ‘ Justin Nozuka’

Last night we went to the amazing concert of Justin Nozuka… God!, what a breath taking voice he has… even though I haven’t been following him for so long, the minute my friend introduced me to his music I was sold. He really has the talent to take you away in his music and he is handsome as well… the hall was filled with screaming girls with dreamy eyes.. My feet hurt though, of standing and waiting, but when Justin came on all was good again.. I hoped he would’ve sang Save Him or After Tonight, but he focused on his new album ‘ Ulysees’ and his new single was called Right By You.. you should defiantly listen to his music… I promise you, you will not be disappointed. Also what I have noticed was that he was so humble which made the experience so much more enjoyable. Thank you for your lovely songs Justin…

Live like it's heaven on earth..

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

Catcher In The Rye

It all made sense when I watched the season 14 episode 2 of South Park: The Tale of Scrotie Mcboogerballs. I can’t even explain what South Park means to me and Vanilla but let me tell you this, it was AHA moment.

This book, let me tell you about this book. It started with me searching for something to read. I usually go to Bol.com that’s a online bookstore like Amazon and I go through all the booklists and also what bol.com recommends me to read. When to my surprise I stumbled upon on this little orange illustrated book. With the title : Catcher In The Rye. I thought that I have seen or heard about this book somewhere but it never caught my attention. The book is considered a classic and I love reading classics, so I bought the book. Eventually it just lay on my bookshelf.  I Did not read it, even forgot that I had the book. But time had passed and there were new leaves on the trees and I had nothing to read anymore. I decided to go through my bookcase and bookshelf’s and found this orange illustrated book again. “hmm” I said to myself. The book wasn’t really thick so I thought why not read it.

Happy day of birth

 It was a cold winter in RUSSIA we only had vodka and zakyska … Wait that’s not how I wanted to start….;p I was born in Ukraine in a town that’s called Tokmak where my grandma still lives. On 17 march 1995 at 8:45 I left my save and protected home which was my mom’s belly and took my first breath in this world. And now 19 years later here I am over 2000 km across the world from my birthplace living and breathing in Amsterdam.

The world is a carousel of color...

The world is a treasure-trove of faces, 
Fabulous, faraway places. 
The hopes and the fears, 
The joys and the tears 
Of people like you and like me.

White is not always light and black is not always dark.

We've all got both light and dark inside us. 
What matters is the part we choose to act on. 
That's who we really are.
