Our first 10 days as newlyweds + My wedding dress!

Hey everyone!

September 10, 2019, has been, without a doubt, the most beautiful day of my life so far. The day Marlon and I said I do, and the day we became husband and wife.

I've wanted to get married to the man of my dreams ever since I was a little girl, and it still seems a bit surreal that it actually happened. Life as a newly married couple is honestly so much fun, and I already love spending every day with him. To be honest we haven't had any newlywed fights yet, but we're actually in the middle of something very exciting (more about that later!), so perhaps those will come later, haha.

I'm super excited that I don't have to keep my wedding dress a secret anymore! This will by far be my most favourite 'outfit of the day' type of post on here ever, so let's go! 👰🏼

My wedding dress is from Sincerity, and my veil is from Poirier. Both my dress and my veil really made me feel like a princess! My shoes are hardly visible, but I wore the Kate Spade shoes I mentioned a while ago. Marlon's entire outfit comes from Suitable, except for his shoes. He has no idea though, where those are from, haha.


I promise to share more wedding photos later.

I need wedding nail inspiration

Hi there!

As most of the wedding planning is done (only 10 days till we say "I do", OMG!), it is time to finish up the small details that will make our wedding day the most beautiful day of our life together. 👰🏼🤵🏻

I'm not 100% sure yet how I want to do my nails, though. I have acrylic nails, so I will definitely get a refill and a fresh coat of colour before walking down the aisle (best excuse ever to treat myself to getting my nails done). But I haven't really decided yet what colour I should go for. A nude, light pink, or french tip might be very classy and really scream "bride", but they also seem a little boring to me as I usually prefer brighter, or more daring, colours.

What do you think? I have listed some nail colours below that I really like, and would love to hear your opinion!

Please note that none of the following images are mine, and are only used as inspiration.

What about a little "something blue" to bring good luck to our marriage?

And what do you think of my favourite colour, fuchsia?

Or should I go for a classic, bridal nude?

 So, let me know what you think! Please tell me if you have any other ideas as well, as I'm definitely open to suggestions!

19 days to go

As our wedding day is fastly approaching, I'm starting to realize how short a 7-month engagement really is! Thankfully, all guests have let us know on time whether or not they will attend the wedding, so that's a huge relief. Planning is almost done, but I'm sure the last few days before the wedding will be very hectic!

I have my last dress fitting coming up this weekend, and Marlon's tux will be ready next week. I'm so excited to wear my dress again after not seeing it for a few months, and to be honest I also can't wait to share pictures on here after the wedding, haha. Wedding planning has been a little stressful due to our short time frame, but I'm sure it will all be worth it as soon as we're pronounced husband and wife.

Anyway, why is it tradition that the groom doesn't see the bride's dress until she walks down the aisle, but it's fine for her to see his suit/tux long before the wedding? 👰🏼🤵🏻

Fun day at the zoo

Yesterday, Marlon and I thought it might be nice to go to the zoo. My summer holiday will be over next week, so I really wanted to do something fun before going back to work. We went to Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam last time, so we decided to go to Burgers Zoo in Arnhem just to change things up! Even though it was crazy crowded for a Thursday, we still had a really fun day, and managed to see quite a lot of animals!

Please don't mind my frizzy hair, it's really humid in that "rainforest", okay? 🤗

And of course I had to squeeze in a little outfit post! Because I knew we would be walking all day, I definitely went for comfort over fashion. I'm wearing a very simple Hunkemöller top, plaid Primark trousers, and my Converse All Star sneakers. My sunglasses are from Loavies (amazing Céline dupe for only €10!), and my bag is my beloved Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis.

What is your favourite animal?

Relaxing day at the sauna

Hey there!

This weekend has been extremely relaxing. Last Friday, my fiancé Marlon and I went to Thermen Bussloo, a beautiful wellness centre set at the edge of a lake here in the Netherlands. There are many different types of saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, pools, and restaurants available, so the day really flew by. We swam, ate lunch, tried out different saunas, took a nap, ate some more, and just relaxed.

To be honest I was looking forward to reading a book in the sun outside and going home without any tan lines, but unfortunately it was pretty cloudy and we didn't get much sun all day. We still had a lovely time though, so I really shouldn't complain. The temperature was nice enough to still walk around outside, and when some occasional rain fell, we were nice and warm inside the sauna or restaurant.

My favourite pool was the salt water cave. Since you float better in salt water compared to fresh water, it's very easy to just lay down and float around. You could listen to calming "aquasound" music by keeping your ears under water which I found very soothing, so I highly recommend checking out the salt water cave if you ever visit!
