So I haven't been posting on this blog for about two months.. I think this is my longest break yet! I've been superbusy with my life in England now. Working fulltime is pretty tiring and takes up a lot of my time. I have been posting on my Dutch blog though, just stories about my adventures here, so click here if you want to take a look at that (and if you already have, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed it).

I haven't been shopping a lot here and I have been in a bit of a rut lately about fashion and whatever. I don't have a lot of clothes here and I keep getting bored of everything I own. So when my mom told me she was visiting Manchester I couldn't wait to get over there to get some mumlove and do some shopping together. We had such a nice time and I fell in love with Manchester. It's such a cool place, very artsy. Which means lots of vintage shops and recordstores. I got some lovely pieces like a new warm wintercoat, with a tartanprint like I wanted and it even has a lammy collar. Also bought some nice denim pieces at a vintage shop and some lace things from Urban Outfitters.

Again, sorry for not posting for so long, I'll try to post a little more but it's just difficult while working the entire week, and getting home when it's already dark outside and stuff. But whenever I can squeeze something in I will!

I got a request for a roomtour a few weeks ago. At that time I thought, yes, I would love to do one. But.. I'm moving out of this room soon, so why not do a roomtour of my new room? My room in England!

I've been living here for almost two weeks now (if you can read Dutch and you would like to know more about my adventures, click here, I set up a new blog for that) and I really like my room. It's not big, but I like the cozyness it has. When I came here it was really plain so I had the chance to add all my little things to give it more character. I feel at home in this room. The shelf (which is actually the top of a fireplace) above is my favorite little area.

The time in Berlin last summer was lovely. I loved 'our' neighbourhood. It felt so safe and I personally thought it was really cute, even at 4am in the morning. This is one of the outfits I wore on our nights out in Berlin. I've been looking for pants like these the entire summer, and these are perfect. They are also great pants to travel in (especially to Berlin, gotta be fabulous and all). I love them. Paired with a crop top for a perfect casual-but-still-a-bit-fancy night.

Eventhough my festival season ended a few weeks ago, I still wanted to share these photos. Best Kept Secret Festival is the best place on earth (well, kind off). It's always the best time of the year and a special place where our group of friends is all together and gets bigger everytime. The best music, the best people, the best food and a gorgeous sight. I can't wait till next year.

By the way.. Currently packing for my big British adventure, tomorrow I'm moving to Chester! I will tell you all about it once I've settled!
