Another London OOTD

Hey my lovelies,
I’m having such a fabulous time in London. I think I have pretty much officially decided that I will be moving to London in October! OMG I’m sooo excited! Just have a feeling this is the right decision to make – I am so ready for this new and exciting chapter of my life.

I only have a few days left in London (I leave again on Friday, poooo) and need to spend the next few days scouting around for job opportunities, wish me luck!
Sharing another quick OOTD from London:

Blazer: Jersey material, Grey from Zara
Top: White with 3/4 puffy sleeves from ZARA
Scarf: Pink with white little hearts from TopShop
Jeans: Studded Indigo Skinny’s from River Island
Shopping wise am trying to control myself a little because I need to save money for my big move in a few weeks. But I have bought a few goodies (which I will share when I am back home) plus am loving the make up brands they have here!  When I get back from London I will be doing a giveaway, including some London beauty purchases, to celebrate that I almost have 300 followers! Wow still can’t believe that sometimes. Have a great week everyone! xoxo

My Faves of the 2010 Emmy’s =

On 29 August, the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angelos. I always love checking out all the glamourous outfits. Here are some of my favourite picks from the night:

Claire Danes looked AMAZING in a strapless Armani Privé gown
Think she was my absolute favourite of the event.
Heidi Klum is one “hot mama” in this black, textured mini by Marchesa 
Nina Dobrev from Vampire Diaries in a one-shouldered blush, floral, silk gown from Zuhair Murad’s Fall 2010 couture collection. Stunning (wow her waist is teeny tiny right?)
Anna Paquin wore an Alexander McQueen gown, embellished with gold. I like it because it stands out and is a little different.  The bottom isn’t super flattering but overall think she looks gorgeous.
Emily Blunt arrived on the red carpet in a one-shouldered Christian Dior gown — and with hubby John Krasinski in tow. Think this lavender dress looks so adorable on her. She looks radiant, pretty and happy! Must be that newly wed glow ;)
Jane Krakowski in navy one-shouldered Escada gown. Love the shape and shoulder detailing.

So these were my faves! What do you think, do you agree? 
Oh how I’d love to be glammed up to the max & wear a SUPER DUPER expensive dress (matched with million dollar jewellery) for an event like this one day. Oh well a girl can dream right ;)

OOTD – London

Woke up this morning to a lovely sunny day in London! I met up with my friend Louise and we went shopping in Oxford Street where I got some great little purchases (I’ll share my purchases when I get back to NL)! We then went for lunch in South Bank, chilled out at her place in the afternoon and in the evening we went for some delicious Spanish tapas and red wine in Clapham, yummmm! I am getting a great vibe from London, love love love it here! Anyways I thought I’d quickly share my OOTD:

Skirt: Silk “animal print” skirt from Zara
Top: Basic black singlet from Decjuba
Cardigan: Black woolen cardi from Country Road
Necklace: Dutch old coin on chain from Decjuba
Black Tights & new Cinderella leather boots I got in The Hague last week.
I’m super happy with these boots! Shoes for me are always so difficult..I kind of have really bad feet (thanks family genetics, grr) so it’s always tricky to find shoes that are actually comfortable to wear. I walked on these little boots all day today and soo comfy – score! :) Tomorrow off to Covent Garden for lunch and probably checking out Notting Hill Carnival. Am off to sleep now, bye bye xoxo

London, yeah baby yeah!

I am currently blogging from my friends flat in London! I left The Hague this morning and took the Eurostar train for a week trip to London. As some of you might know I left NZ a few month’s ago to relocate (permanently back) to Europe and London has been the main city on my list of potential new home towns. I wanted to spend a week in London to meet up with friends, check out the city, job market & opportunities and to try to finally make up my mind on where I want to move to for the next chapter of my life around October.

I’m very excited to catch up with friends and browse around the city to get a feel of the real London, plus of course get a bit of shopping in while I am here too (hehe).  Any tips for some must-do’s; beside the typical touristy stuff?
