Summer is almost completely loaded in the Netherlands & everyone is searching for that perfect shoe. Living here you get to wear your really cute flip-flops and sandals sometimes but not during the whole of Summer. (Thanks to rain and unpredictable Dutch weather) So having that perfect closed-up and sturdy shoes is a MUST HAVE! My choice goes to the Adidas Superstar!
I have never been a fan of white shoes but the gold on this one made it so irresistible for me. It is not too mush nor not too little & seeing that I have gold as my accessorising colour..how can I go wrong? The white and black in the shoes makes it so versatile and easy to combine with all outfits. Adding to that I love that the white makes they seem so clean & fresh. Until they get dirty and old that is….
What shoe do you have your eyes on for this summer?
So I am back to blogger & vlogging! I took a break from the social ‘online‘ world for a while (but not Snapchat). This break happened right at the time where I really needed to keep focused and dedicated to writing and completing my thesis. Even thou I took this break and it is now over I just noticed that I should not have taken such a long break and limited myself. I had/have so many ideas of content I want to create and share with all my followers because I LOVE CREATING CONTENT! I was really not being myself and doing things I enjoyed because I was so “BUSY” and needed to focus.
Writing a thesis can be very time consuming, frustrating when you get stuck and an energy guzzler. Adding to my school/thesis schedule I also have a part-time job at ZARA to keep up with. But I made it! I handed in my thesis & recently found out I FAILED 🙁 This was not such a huge let down as I thought it would be because my biggest worry was not being able to graduate this school year, BUT I WILL! & I am learning myself to find the P O S I T I V E in every let down and life-events. This is not a easy process but I am on the journey.
Anyway I will be making blog post on life-events and lessons I have learned along the way but for now back to my first Street Fashion shoot. I do have a <3 for fashion so I wanna start to share some looks I put together, essential for the different seasons and current trends in the fashion industry.
My first blog post is all about this eye-catching patches and pins bomber jacket that I purchased from ZARA. When I first saw this come in on deliver day I fell in LOVE. It is so Urban, Fashionable & Unique, so I had to have it! But within no time it sold out all over the Netherlands and I was not able to get my hands on it. But one day I came into work having a bad day and a colleague said she saved me one! (This made my day!) & I decided to take some picture with Anthony Donker of Pop”Arts Design, he is a talented photography who is also from the islands! Bombers are a spring/summer must have so I paired this with my favourite type of jeans Girlfriend Jeans.
What do you think about my outfit & about me sharing my outfits?
My Tropical Summer Vacation is coming to an end soon…
Since I have been on Saba I haven’t been blogging as frequently as I would have liked. This is because I was having a great time with family and friends. I know this is no excuse but I am finally here! For this week I plan on uploading a new blog post every day. The blog post will be about different activities/the daily life on Saba. Seeing that Saba is not so widely known I thought I would share a few fun facts about the island.
Saba Fun Facts
Location: Latitude – 17.38 North ~ Longitude – 63.13 West in the northeastern Caribbean Sea.
Population: About 1,400.
The island surface = 13 square kilometres (5 square miles).
Also known as “The Unspoiled Queen”.
Great for Hiking & Diving.
Only one airline lands on the island. (Windward Island Airways)
Saba is so unique, to the point that it does not always show up on the map. (Amazing right?!) This is a great point but is also a bit of a down fall. Saba has so much to offer to its inhabitants as well as visitors. It is a very small island that is surrounded by endless ocean.
A few weeks ago I went on a day trip with the Dawn II (The Saba Ferry) to St.Maarten. In St.Maarten is where most people from Saba shops for different wholesale/retail daily needs. While on the island for the day I decided to shop for some cosmetics because during my stay on Saba I am doing different people’s makes-up. I got so much new goodies and was extremely contented with them.
It was my first time in a long time being on a boat. But I am so thankful that I took some sea sick tablets before going on board they helped me feel so much better. Two tips I have for anyone that are going on board the boat/ferry is to take sea sick pills before and to keep your head up and do not look down.;) (you will thank me later!) The boat ride to St.Maarten is about an hour and forty five minutes.
Well this is the end of my first blog post. Until the next one, tomorrow 🙂
Enjoy the pictures!
& leave a comment if you wan to know more about the island or a picture. 🙂
As promised in my post before here is a YT video on my trip from the Netherlands to Curaçao. In this video I share with you my departure and arrival! I will be sharing pictures and different updates on my social media!
Tomorrow is the day that I leave the Netherlands and go to Curaçao on my first stop in my ‘Tropical Summer Vacation’. Excited?Yes I am! It has been a year since seeing my family. A year since the last time I enjoyed some of the delicious foods as well as feeling the hot sun on my skin.
After spending some time on Curaçao I will be flying to St.Maarten and get a connecting flight to Saba. A direct flight is currently not yet possible from Curaçao to Saba, that being the reason for a short stop in St.Maarten. There I will also be spending quality time with family and friends.
Excited, yes I am! But first today I must do some last rounds of shopping, cleaning up and getting my suitcases packed. Off I go, into the city to get some last stuff.
Ohhh, I also plan on sharing my journey with you by creating blog posts and vlogs showing how beautiful the islands are.
Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram (@SJs_Obsessions) for tropical pictures & on SnapChat (@SJObsessions) for instant video & picture updates.
Soon I will be going on my summer vacation! I can not wait *YAYY* But before going on vacation it is important to do some shopping and add those things to your suitcase. I did a bit of shopping and thought I would share with you what I have so far.
I will be going to Curaçao, St.Maarten and Saba, while there I plan on vlogging my daily island life. If you want to get to know more about these islands & see what it has to offer do subscribe to my YT Channel.
