What’s new / Budgettips

I always feel that my budget is fighting against what is trending. That little voice inside my head always says to me: ‘You really like does …., don’t you? Just buy them!’ Unfortunatly I am not rich (at all) and my bank account doesn’t like me spending all that money. I have found some ways to indulge myself in the new trend, but don’t spend to much. Here are some budgettips:

1. Go Outlet shopping. I am really lucky to live about 5 min away from a pretty big outletcenter.
2. Go sample shopping. Follow some blogs who will give you more information about where/when.
3. Go to second hand/vintage shops.
4. Go on Ebay and buy second hand.
5. Find out which online shops offer free delivery and affordable clothes. I find new online shops using Fashiolista. I will make a list of my favorite online shops soon.
6. Never buy something in a online shop without using a discount code. Just use google and you pretty much find some codes for every online shop there is.
7. Don’t buy the real thing but search for a real nice knock-off. I will make another post about this topic.
8. Make a list before you go (online) shopping. Then you only buy things you really need.
9. Clean out you closet, you will find things you forgotten about (feels like shopping).
10. Sell you stuff and make money instead of spending it.


I would just die having this closet.

Hope these tips will help you to become a better (online) shopper and you are able to save some money. Let me know if you want to add some tips? I can sure use them.

Inspiration / Berlin

This is my 50’s post! I have over 50 followers! Yay, 4 months in the running and standing strong ;)…

Well, back to bloggin’
Only 3 more days untill we leave to visit Berlin. Although it is only 624km to Berlin I have never been there, but wanting for a whole lot of years. Not only is Berlin trending and full of interesting/inspirational people. This city has a history like no other city in the world.

As most of you know Berlin was the epicentrum during World War II and afterwards divided in West and East Berlin untill 1989. That is 50 years of differences, poor and rich, suppression and pure history.

Ofcourse, being Dutch I have been brougthup with stories about World War II and everything that changed after. Also first hand by my grandparents, who all live through this awfull time, but in school this was one of the main subjects during history lessons.

Logically, I need to be visiting the Holocaust Museum, checkpoint Charlie, what is left of the Berlin wall and so on…but today I want to share with you some trendy spots in Berlin which are on my list to visit. I put together a day programme, all credits go to Petite Passport.

Lunch: Aunt Benny
No words needed

Shopping: Voo
Industrial interiour combined with fashion in the Kreuzberg district

Dinner: Dudu
Seriously the best sushi they promised me

Sleeping: Plus One
Sleep here and get a guided tour by a local for free (choose from 28 locals)

Have you been to Berlin? Any good tips?

What’s new / Fashiolista

Well, not really new. Just to show my Dutch pride (Fashiolista is founded by Dutchies) I have to share this with all of you.


Fashiolista helps you save & share your greatest fashion finds from all over the web. With the special Love button, you can save your fashion favorites from nearly every online store in one convenient place. Your personal Fashiolista profile will become the a wish list of items that you love, want, or that just inspire you.
