Southern Charm

Southern Charm is one of my favorite tv-shows at the moment! I have to say, I'm a huge fan of Cameran Wimberly-Eubanks. 
Southern Charm is an reality television series that follows the professional and personal lives (and social events) of seven 'socialites' who live in Charleston, South Carolina. Have you ever watched it (or just never even heard of it)? Right now season 2 has started, ofcourse I've already seen S2E01. 

Here's what IMDB says about the show:'The notoriously closed society of Charleston, South Carolina unlocks the gates of their centuries-old plantation homes for a real-life look at how modern-day Southern aristocracy lives. Get charmed by the social scene which is bound by tradition and ostentation unlike any other culture in America, through a group of the city's most charismatic gentlemen and their Southern belle equals.'

Curious? Here's a sneak peek.

Seersucker dress(es)

I'm in love with this type of fabric. From mens' shorts to super girly dresses, everything seems to look good in light blue, yellow or pink seersucker. 
Since there are little to none dresses like these available anywhere here, I'm going to make some of my own. And maybe even start selling them on my blog? If you're interested, please let me know!

What's your favorite?

The rules of a lady.

I'd like to think that a true lady is elegant, kind, beautiful from inside and out, well-educated, intelligent, open minded, knows what she want but will not use someone else as a stepping stone. 

You've might seen these 'rules' on tumbler, blogs and twitter. There are a few different tumbler account but here you can find 241 rules or guide-lines so far. Scroll down for are a few of my favorites.

What are your favorite rules?

You want to wake up looking all perfect and Instagram-worthy? Well these 5 tips might help a little! 

1. Always remove your make-up! Didn't you mom already teach you that? Still, it takes a minute or two to properly remove your make-up. When I'm tired I just use some make-up remover wipes and then a wash cloth with some cold water. 
2. Use a nice thick layer of (night) cream. Even on your hands, neck and clevage to restore damaged skin. I like to use vitamin C or E serum/ drops or cream. 
3. A silk or satin pillow case can help prevent wrinkles and damaged hair.
4. I like to put my hair up in a loose bun and then pull on my hair in the front for extra volume. This tric helps me waking up with beautiful hair with lots and lots of volume. Don't really get what I mean? Watch this video clip (and forward to the part were she shows you how to put your hair up). 
5. Get enough sleep! Make sure your bedroom is a quiet place without too much distractions.

The babies.


Some pictures just because they're the cutest (as every 'pet parent' would say). 

I can't walk outside for 10 min with Saar (our dog) without someone asking if he/she can pet her. Everyone thinks she's so cute, soft, fluffy and sweet. And yes, luckily for us, she is! She is a kind dog and usally really likes the attention.
Also, our cat does too! She doesn't get out of our house and garden (we live at a busy street) but she really likes it when we are at home ourselves or have visitors. The thing she loves the most is watching me do my make-up or blowdrying my hair or something like that. She likes to watch and sometimes falls asleep. Isn't that sweet? She seems to think watching me (or my boyfriend) is calming, even when we just do some household chores she loves to be near and watch us. 

Do you have any pets? And what are they like?

Favorite Youtube-channels 'du jour'...

These are my favorite Youtube- vloggers/bloggers at the moment! 

The Daily Connoisseur.
From a capsule wardrobe to hair tutorials to how to live your live with poise and elegance. I love this youtube channel by Jennifer Lauren Scott, who also wrote different books about an 'elegant lifestyle'. 

Christine Kobzeff.
Former 'Pink So Foxy' has been a long time favorite for me. I love this youtube channel, especially the DIY projects and room make-overs. She and her husband are so skilled when it comes to creating and making things for in and around the house. 

Carrie LeighAnna.
I've blogged about her before. I love watching her talk, she's so cute! I really like the tips on how to be a minimalist in your wardrobe and home and I also feel like she gives great advice when it comes to living a simple but happy life. 

Rachel makes me smile. Her vlogs and tutorials are funny and clever and she gives an honest opinion about, well, everything! 

Sometimes she acts a little too much as 'the teacher' but the tips on how to organize your space/kitchen/closet/whatever are great and usefull. 

Coco has a great fashion sense and also blogs/vlogs about minimalism. I really liked her last video about moving and can't wait for the next update!

Rain boots

These are so cute, small rain booties with bows. I would love to add these to my wardrobe, especially since it is raining so often in the Netherlands! 
Buy them here.

Edit note: I ordered them. They didn't had my size on the website anymore but I've send an e-mail and they were so kind to search their stockroom. So I've received an e-mail that they still had one pair in my size and I've also received a discount. Great service so far!
