THANKSGIVING DINNER


So as you all know and have read in my weeks of planning and posting about Thanksgiving it has been the best night, after cooking all day and making amazing dishes it is just the best feeling to see your guests enjoying the meal you have prepared all day. I cooked a turkey, made a scalloped sage  potato casserole, a sweet potato marshmallow/pecan casserole, carrots with parmegiano and stringbeans in a mushroom soup. It was delicious and we all enjoyed an amazing meal and said our grace, we listened to jazz music and enjoyed our wine. So to show you all what an amazing night we had i will post some pictures. How was your Thanksgiving? did you enjoy home cooked food or did you go out? let me know.

HAIR SECRETS



I had been contemplating getting highlights again, because my own highlight where almost completely gone. I had a certain natural sun kissed coupe for 2 years, but lately it had been taken over by my natural hair colour dark brown. Somehow my hair is getting darker, the older im getting haha at least i still have color, although i must share with you that i found two grey hair since summer (OMG, what is happening?) Soooooo to get back on track, i chose to get some balayage and it was magnificent. My hair has never looked this magical, my jaw dropped. You know the awkward feeling you always have when you sort of look like a boy in the hairdresser chair with a cape around your neck, having your head popping out looking horrible because your hair is pulled back and wet. I have that each time...it is always very exciting when they are blowdrying your hair and you are just waiting for the results. So it is safe to say that my expectations where blown out of the water, i always hope and hope the results will be amazing but that is not always the case. But this time i was surprised in a good way. So if you are thinking about getting yourself some highlights or balayage then you should, because it really brightens your whole appeal. It gives you the glow you want to have especially during winter times feeling all gloomy and cold. Hope you will take the same leap i did, because i am so happy with my results! I got my hair done at Flawser Embassy in Amsterdam, but i am sorry to say that they have recently gone bankrupt. The hairdresser that did my hair is still working as a hairdresser and she has found herself a loyal client, because i will follow her anywhere! Because my beauty mantra is - hair is holy

PICTURE PERFECT


So i wanted to share a collaboration i had with Fotofabriek, a great online company to get your pictures printed on anything. They have calendars, picture books, wall decorations and much much more. I love making beautiful pictures and having them displayed in my home. I tried out a picture on plexiglass and it looks amazing. I sent in a picture of my Pompom Soe, because she is the little model and the results looked where great. The quality is remarkable, you can see every hair in the picture.  I got my picture with hooks so i can hang it up on the wall, but i love just leaning all of my frames against a wall or on a cabinet. They offer a very easy online editor where you can make your own picture perfect. It would serve as a great Christmas or birthday gift as well. My dad is actually turning 80 next month and i have a beautiful picture i want to have blown out on a canvas, because how great are personal gifts right? Want to check out the service i used for mine, then click here or you just want to have a look at there website to browse their other products? then click here.

Would love your opinion on my picture, don't you just love it? what would you have printed out?

Much Love

ULTIMATE TO DO LIST IN NYC

THE BIG APPLE


NEW YORK....sigh


Hasn't there been one point in all of our lives that we have fallen madly in love with this city or what? I know i have and our love affair has been going on for 10 years now. The first time i went to New York i was 17 years old, seems like yesterday almost. I remember the feeling i had when i got on that plane, i couldn't wait to finally see this magical city for real. I have been to New York in my earlier days as an infant, but i can't remember it anymore. So it was like visiting for the first time, i went with my mom and dad and i remember being so amazed by all of the city lights when we landed. The first thing i did was run to the store and got Captain Crunch, somehow this cereal is the key to feeling like a real american. I had seen it in so many movies and tv shows, this was the ultimate experience (ha ha). Since my 17th, i have gone back almost every year except the last two years. I can feel it in my bones, they are tingeling of excitement to re-unite with my magical city, it has been far to long. I am visiting family first, going over for our Armstrong annual christmas party JEEJ. That is the key to feeling like a real American, getting to go to the holiday parties, seeing decorations everywhere, iceskating, holiday shoppings, snow, decorated houses i could go on for ages it is a BLAST. So to get in the mood, since i am leaving next week i have a little inspo for you and yours truly.
