One of the requests I got a lot lately (keep them coming btw, love to hear your thoughts on the type of articles you’d like to read on SFFTE) is what my closet looks like. I might have shown some glipses every now and then on Instagram already, and since I’m not feeling comfortable on video (one of the other requests.. sorry!), I decided to show a part of my wardrobe. Lots of shoes, lots of jackets. One of the things I like the most about having a walk in closet is the fact that I’m able to switch up my current favourite pieces once in while and display them like little pieces of art (nerd alerrrrt!), so it feels like my own personal little space. One I like to (re)decorate frequently, just like I did last weekend: fresh tulips (like a true Dutchie should ;)), latest sneaker additions, fresh new Farrow & Ball wallpaper in a light tone to emphasize the light in the room, but still add a nice touch to a plain wall. What do you think?

Even though it feels like the actual sale season hasn’t been over for so long, mid season sale is just around the corner. This is the time where I actually can’t keep myself from browsing through my favourite webshops on the hunt for that perfect item that will kickstart my spring-ready feeling (the sunny weather in Amsterdam helped me quite a bit, I have to say). I selected the items I would love to add to my wardrobe for the next season to come, and I’m getting really tempted here, because currently Shopbop’s big Spring sale has started. The deal is you get a higher discount as soon as you buy more: you save 15% with purchase over $250, 20% with purchase over $500 and you get a 25% with purchase over $1000 as long as you don’t forget to enter promocode BIGEVENT15 at checkout (valid until Sunday March 8th). Looks like I’m going to spend my evening (online) window shopping..

That crazy busy week in which I worked out 7 times in 9 days, worked 10 days in 5 days, sold sooo many shoes at the Meuq pop up store (go check out their website), got myself a new bag – the perfect size for everyday use, as long as you don’t carry a 15″ Macbook Pro, received some awesome – knitted! – kicks, and received this totalle awesome picture of my beloved mom and me back in the days. I can’t even explain what this picture does to me. Off to enjoy a lazy Sunday? Nope, not for me. I don’t really like them like that anyway. Enjoy yours! <3
Somehow it feels right to send my apologies to you guys for the silence on my blog lately. I’ve been literally too busy to actually breathe, but I’m certainly not complaining: I’m in a very happy place when it comes to everything work related, but sometimes that means I had to prioritise. In other words: do I want to post some crap on my blog for the sake of posting? Or do I give myself the space to sort things out and post qualitative good stuff? I prefer option two.
Does that mean I’ll continue to post less? Certainly not, I’ve got a few things up my sleeve already: looks like we’ll finally be working on a new design for SFFTE, new angles, new stuff. All fine in this little digital corner, so don’t you worry ;) Just aty tuned.
