NYC TIMES || 2013

October 18, 2016

Hi Guys! What brings you today? I’ve been thinking about my time in New York, when I did my internship with my girl Marije back in 2013. By the way, I booked a ticket for Barcelona to visit her!! I’m going in January ūüėÄ The idea was to visit her next¬†December, but the tickets are a bit cheaper for January. I’m really reallllllyyy excited for these few days at Marije her place in Barcelona. We’ve been through a lot together in New york haha. That’s why I was thinking about my time in New York. I’ve been there 3 times now, and I love NY very much. I had so much fun with Marije. I remember one of the first days, we were on a fashion event at Gansevoort. It¬†was a really nice evening. When we went home, we walked over Time Square and made some funny vlogs haha. Our apartment was in Harlem West, at 144th street. There is a red metro line that goes to 145th street West, BUT there were more red lines and we took the wrong line hahaha. It was very late that evening, and we didn’t know the area… So the (wrong line) metro stopped on the end of destination¬†and we left the metro.. It gave¬†me a bad feeling when we walked on the street. It was sooooo dark and there were no¬†people on the streets… I only saw a few¬†people in their car, with sigarets (maybe drugs or something, haha. I can laugh about it now, but at that moment it wasn’t so funny hahahah, I was a bit scared) and they played loud music… I remember there was a square with baskets. It looked like a movie… I told¬†Marije we had to go back, because it wasn’t feeling so good out there. But our apartment had to be around there (at least, we thought). Then I saw a plate with 145th… But it was E 145th.. E FROM EAST! Omg hahahaha! We ran back to the metro station really fast! We couldn’t believe we took¬†the wrong red line… but okay, it was one of the first days in New York and we had stil to learn a lot in these months. Really funny.. when we talk about all these moments, we are crying with laughter. And yesss, I will finally see you in January again babe!

So.. now I’ll get¬†myself ready to¬†go out with my brother and my parents. Some shopping? Haha, I hear my mom say ” NOOOOO SHOPPING ” :p

Enjoy yours X Char

Brrrrr… I can’t handle this cold weather. Take me to an Island, with palms, white sand and blue sea like crystal clear water. Anyway,,, I’m sitting here behind¬†my iMac, listening to some music. I’m really addicted to this song “Solange – Cranes in the sky“. I¬†feel¬†relaxed when¬†I listen music like this. It’s a boring, cold Monday.. What are you guys doing today? Oh, you see this picture here on top^ It was made during my last trip to¬†Berlin, when Maikel and I visited our friend Gowsi. Tomorrow it’s her BDAY! Hahaha, anyway.. ¬†I will¬†visit¬†Berlin again in the first weekend of November! I want to make some more pictures than I did last time, more of the city and maybe a few¬†outfit shots¬†for my blog :D. Next¬†Sunday, Gowsi organizes a birthday dinner with a few friends! I’m really excited, ’cause I love food ahahaha and cozy diner with some friends¬†is¬†always good. But firstly, on Friday, I have to go to school and after that I’ll be spending time with Maikel. I’m gonna cook now, and after that I’m going to search for cheap tickets to Barcelona! Any tips for cheap tickets to Barca? I wanna visit my girl Marije in December if it’s possible. I prefer to depart from Amsterdam (Schiphol Airport). If you have any tips, please give me some ūüėÄ Thank you so much. Enjoy this Monday X CHAR

Hello babes! It’s October, and I noticed it by¬†the weather here in the Netherlands. I don’t like the cold weather, but during¬†autumn.. I really like some different outfits and nature¬†photography (like¬†all the leaves and trees etc..)¬†I really love to wear wool sweaters and I prefer¬†them¬†oversized! I love all these outfits that I found on Tumblr. Some inspiration for me. I have to¬†get ready now, at this moment I’m doing my hair¬†and after that it’s time to have¬†lunch with my lovely ladies from work. I’m really excited, I love to eat duhh, hahahaha but it’s a long time since we were together and had¬†lunch or something. I don’t even know what to wear… It looks hot outside, because the sun is shining as if¬†the summer is back, but it’s very windy outside… Blehh and I have to go by bike… “Sorehead” … Okay, what are you going to do? After our lunch, I have to go to work. So, not so interesting. Have a nice day everyone! X Char

Hi Babes!¬†I’m sitting¬†here at home in my pink sweater, with a cup of tea… looking at my pictures from our vacation at Madeira. Missing these beautiful views and the warmth of the Island. I was doing my homework, ’cause¬†Friday¬†I got my first presentation! But it’s cold here, and I was searching for some inspiration, and the sd-card from my camera with all the pictures from Madeira was still in my Macbook.. So I opened this map, annnnndddd my motivation for school was gone hahahaha, no not really gone, I’m just distracted.. I’m really excited for¬†Friday. We have to make two shopping pages for Marie Claire UK. When I’m finished, I’ll post these shopping pages on my website under “SOME STUFF“. I’ll put all my school projects there, to form a little online portfolio. So, how about your school day? X Char

The last day of the Wine festival…. It feels just like I’m still there mwhehehehe. These pictures are from our vacation at¬†Madeira. There was this¬†“Wine Festival” till September 8th.. It looks very cozy. There were a lot of wine tastings, and food. Oh my,.. I promise you guys, my Travel vlog will be online¬†in the next few days. I thought it¬†would be¬†during like 3 – 5 minutes, but it’s during like 10 minutes already¬†hahaha… a long video, but it’s coming. Now, I look forward for the next trip! I’m going to Berlin again in November with my 2 aunties and 2 nieces! I’m really excited. Friday was my first school day! I felt¬†so great! Finally, a new challenge for this year, and it’s my last year. I hope this school year will be great! I would like to intern at a company or to be an assistant at¬†a few¬†shoots. We will see ūüėÄ . Today we had a little party, because it’s Maikel his mother’s birthday. Tomorrow, it’s Maikel his first day at his¬†internship, goodluck Babe. Goodnight lovely people, X Char

September 7, 2016

Hi Guys! Sorry for not posting this few days.. I was feeling not so well, and yesterday I had to¬†work. So, here is a post about Porto Moniz. It’s very beautiful there! This waiter at O’ Violino told us to visit Porto Moniz by bus, and so we did. The bus departed¬†in front of¬†our Hotel (Casino Park). From there, it was a long ride, like¬†3 hours, so long… But it made me so happy when we got there and saw beautiful Porto Moniz. I would really recommend¬†you guys to go there! You only have to pay a¬†‚ā¨1,50 entrance fee per person, and if you want a sunlounger it’s also only ‚ā¨1,50 per¬†person. You can also just put your towel on the ground, just like many people did. You can swim and dive¬†at Porto Moniz and, of course, you can also have a drink or a meal. Oh! The bus ticket from Funchal to Porto Moniz only costs you¬†‚ā¨6,- one way for one person, so it’s not too expensive. It was a comfortable¬†bus.¬†When I was young, I remember we did school trips with the same kind of busses, hahaha. The weather in The Netherlands is pretty nice now, so I think that I’m going to relax in our backyard¬†now and maybe have an ice cream, before it’s time to work again… What are you guys doing today? I think many of you are going to school. I have to go again on Friday, finally! My last year at¬†the Vogue Academy in Amsterdam. I’m really excited for this year. Well, goodluck everyone! X Char

Missing this great food already. We had our last diner yesterday night at Theo’s Bazar Cafe. We decided to eat our last meal there, because the food was great and the atmosphere was very cozy with live music. It looks very nice from¬†the outside and also from the inside! The personnel is¬†so friendly and properly! It¬†was so nice. Since Maikel has¬†tried the “Madeira wine” at Theo’s, he’s totally in love with it. And I was totally in love with the pianist, he was playing so great.. I was telling Maikel sarcasticly ¬†to invite him for our wedding party, so he can play the piano hahahaha. Thumbs up for this lovely restaurant. Now we’re here¬†at home, sweet home, and we’re looking at the¬†pictures and video’s we made in Madeira. My travel vlog will come soon! To stay updated,¬†you can¬†follow my blog and Instagram ūüėÄ X Char

I THINK THIS IS THE BEST TRIP EVER ON MADEIRA! I SAW DOLPHINS TODAY!!!!! This was a really really beautiful morning! I want to do it again. We had tickets for this boat trip, to see dolphins. The crew of the catamaran said “cross your fingers to see dolphins this morning” and yes we were so lucky! I love this sea animals, they are beautiful. The dolphins swum under and in front of¬†the catamaran and jumped like crazy fishes (I didn’t see Dory:( ) But yeah, haha we saw 2 turtles hahaha, they are really funny.. but they were too¬†shy when we got closer, so they dived. I thought the weather wasn’t going to be great, but we had double fingers crossed for the sun :p It was sunny¬†the whole day! Maybe we will do this trip tomorrow again hahaha. After the boat trip we went to the cable car, and visited the Tropical Gardens. What a big place, and it looks like China with all the little red bridges and little buildings. It was nice to see. Now we are going to take a shower and fresh up.. we saw some new things here in Funchal. There’s a wine festival till September 8th! So we can’t miss it. I’ll post¬†a new update later guys! Nice evening everyone! Cheers from Madeira¬†X Char
