Back in black and gold

16 mrt 2013 Posted by Her Phoenix in Looks

Unfortunately I can’t provide any sunny looks as I did last year in Madrid. But at least now you can all see how I look in winter.. well without 5 layers of clothes I actually wear outside that means, and without heels because of the snow. (ு८ு)

I’m just going to keep calling and texting you until you understand how normal I am

I’m not a winter person at all. I don’t like cold weather, grey sky, jackets, coats and everything else in my closet that doesn’t scream summer.  Besides that I strongly dislike to be pale. When I say this to my boyfriend he immediately points out: ‘But you’re white!!”. Even though I cannot deny that fact, I still like to believe that the sun kissed tanned skin I have after baking in the sun for some days, is my natural skin colour… A girl can dream8-)
Have to study now though! I’m actually way to busy to make pictures, edit them and post them but I could not say no to myself (I have no study/work discipline whatsoever). <3

Instagram – New shoes preview

10 jan 2013 Posted by Her Phoenix in Looks

I could not wait until Saturday (planning to make new pictures then) to show my new bone heels! You either totally adore them or totally despise them. I love extreme crazy shoes and I’ve always wanted shoes with a bone heel. ♥‿♥

Sometimes you need to step outside, clear your head and remind yourself of who you are. And where you wanna be.

I have a fear of making decisions. I’m not good in deciding/choosing. I have that problem with small unimportant things as in not knowing which picture to choose for on my blog or with not knowing if I should buy something (very ridiculous obviously). But also with very important decisions. Especially when it involves other people. I never want to let people down or hurt them in some way. So I always ignore the necessity to decide. I stick with a certain situation just so I won’t have to decide. But the irony is that it’s actually also a decision not to decide.. without knowing it. So with ignoring the important decisions in life, you decide not to do anything about it. Because of this I tend to get and stay in unpleasant situations. This sounds stupid of course but for me the fear of not knowing what will happen if I choose the wrong path looks worse inside my head then the actual unpleasant situation it selves. Such a mental prison right. It’s always really difficult to change state of minds. At least I have a new challenge for 2013. Let’s do this 😎

In today’s disposable culture, we throw away people like we do razors, always assuming there’s someone better out there to hang out with

I pushed a camera in my best friends hands so I could show the crush I have on this new shirt. It’s the god Ganesha, god of wisdom who protects and helps people who face difficulties on their (life)journey. He’s the protector of all travellers. I hope he gives me some guidance on my path to. I’m finally wearing my wildfox wing earrings. They remind me of Erykah Baduh who has these insane (10 times bigger) wing earrings. (google and be amazed8-) If it’s not raining tomorrow I will make new pictures<33

The way mystery can be so very sticky and tricky.

06 nov 2012 Posted by Her Phoenix in ., Looks

I want to invite you to my -virtual- personal life. I am obsessed with taking picture and I bet that my friends on facebook went crazy from all those posts. That’s why I started to use instagram! ( it took a long time before I was finally convinced haha)
I post daily pictures of my outfit, quotes or other things that caught my eyes. You can find me @ herphoenix. Love you all. xxx

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door. Now is the time for guts.

It’s fall… I still have to cope with the fact that I cannot walk around with bare legs any more. My daily looks consists out of leggings, boots and vintage blouses. I’m not looking forward to cold and snow. I hate the fact so much that I cannot post more frequently on my blog. I’m trying my best to come with a solution so I can provide more pictures on a regular basis. Besides the fact that I don’t have a official photographer… yet… (lets think positive), the weather is terrible most of the time. I get home every day from my intern ship when it’s almost dark… so only the weekend is left to make pictures. But today I could finally make some photos. I’m wearing my new boots!! (love them) with a vintage blouse and some gold jewellery. A simple outfit for a casual weekend. My bf could convince me to make pictures on a totally different location then normally. Have to try something new. I tend to stick with safe options haha.

Be the sort of person that when people see you wearing army pants and flip-flops, they go buy army pants and flip-flops

I truly dislike people who use the phrases: ‘white pants are so NOT this season’. Or even worse: ‘You should throw away this or that because it’s soo not fashionable at this moment’. Every year, season, phase, moment, people are asking themselves or others: ‘what is the trend now, what should I buy&wear!?’. Every magazine is full with the new ‘HOT items’ and the ‘YOU SHOULD WEAR THIS AND NOTHING ELSE’ screaming titels with pretty pictures that force you to spend hundreds of euros because THEY say it’s fashion right now. Of course they tell you to throw away half of your closet and of course they come with new fashion trends every few months because else you wouldn’t spend money. But I believe you should flip this process around.. You should not let people tell you what to wear… You should wear your own style with so much confidence and comfort that people want to have your mojo. A lot of times when I go shopping the people I’m with say: noo that item is horrible. I always response with: I’m going to buy it and I know you will love it! And almost every time in the end when I wear it they say: ‘well I would never wear it but you can pull it off’. I truly believe that when you have the confidence you can wear EVERYTHING. You can make the weirdest fashion combination and still look awesome.

LOOK: Wearing this amazing brand MINKPINK. Wearing it with dr. Martens -> Since my intern ship I’ve been wearing only these on a daily basis and my heels are standing sad in my closet,

Never give up on someone you can’t go a day without thinking about.

Thought of today: Real love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Real love never fails. But love is terrifying.. It makes you vulnerable, emotional and even crazy&paranoid at some point. It makes you question&doubt yourself in bad times but it also helps you learn and grow. In this love challenge it sometimes feels like you’d be better of without the other person that brings out multiple emotional roller-coasters. But you should not give up on someone you think loveable thoughts about every day. You should not give up on someone who gives you butterflies and the warm, safe & comfortable feeling while being together. We should all accept and adore the insane, weird, and unique persons we love without the need to change all the bad habits. If your bf or gf can make you feel happy, special and loved at good times.. it’s absolutely worth it to fight through the bad times.
