Last week I was invited to visit Zizzi during the "Curvy is Sexy" fair in Berlin. As it was my first visit (to the fair as well as Berlin) I was very excited to go and preview Zizzi's new collection for AW15. I had an early flight and had to get up at 4.00 AM (!) in order to be ready on time. Hey, perfection takes time! :P
Luckily I did not have to travel alone, I was joined by fellow bloggers Iris, Els and Hermina (missing my buddy Nefferth!). After a short 1,5 hour flight, we arrived safely in Berlin. Since I'm kind of a cheapo and think that taxi's (at least in the Netherlands 'cause they're freakin expensive) are waste of my money we opted for public transportation to the hotel instead. It took a while, BUT! We eventually arrived. After a quick install session in our hotel rooms we left for the fair. There was a shuttle service available but little did we know THIS would be our ride! Awesome!

Introducing you to Zizzi's new limited collection called the "Wardrobe of Wonders" or W.O.W. for short. If you've been following me for a while you may have seen me mention it in my post of my visit to Zizzi in Copenhagen last August. I was very excited about it then, and I still am now!
For this collection, Zizzi worked with designer team Femmes Regionales and I love how it came out! The line consists of items that can be mixed and matched. You can either choose to wear a matching set or step out the box a little and mix everything together. They chose fabulous Felicity Hayward to model the line and she looks great doing it!
The W.O.W. collection will be available from 9 February in Zizzi stores (online Denmark only).
So tell me, which are your faves?
I will be posting some looks with the items soon, so keep an eye out! xoxo

Women come in all shapes and sizes. When thinking of plus sizes, people usually only take the "larger size" or "larger size clothes" into account. But also plus sizes come in different forms and shapes. When my fellow blogger Els received a comment that it was hard to identify with the Dutch/Belgian plus size bloggers because "none of us have a belly" or "we are slimmer" she was inspired to make this line-up in order to make it easier for women to see our differences and to give readers a better way of seeing which blogger might match their own body type. I think Els did a great job, thank you for this (read more for the full line-up)!

Be still my heart... Can this picture be any more fab?! It's one of the images from the new swimsuit line of Gabi Fresh for Swimsuits For All! This line will be Gabi's third collaboration with them and boy, the collection gets better every year!
Let's just say that I'm one of the many that is anxiously waiting for the pre-sale, which will start in a few hours! This time-zone crap is killing me! Also keep an eye out for Gabi's post in which she will provide details regarding the sizing and fit. And don't say I did not warn you, be quick, 'cause this collection will sell out fast!! You can pre order here, read the full post for more pics

A new year, so new things. If you did not notice yet, I changed the look of my blog last week, I hope you like it! I bought this template on pipdig and I'm very pleased with it. I like the simple, yet classic style. For a while now I've been getting more into html coding and ways to customize my blog and I thought it would be cool to share these things for those interested as well. So from time to time, I will be posting tutorials on how to make certain changes yourself in a very simple way. I will list them in the category "Blogger Help", so if you need anything in the future you can also find these articles by selecting that category in the drop down menu at the top of my blog.
So, here we go! I'm starting this off with a tutorial on how to make thumbnail photo galleries on your blog, something I use a lot, and is fairly easy to do.

If you're reading this message, you have made it safely to 2015.. :)
I hope all of you enjoyed celebrating the new year, I sure did! I don't know how it is in other countries but here, people are allowed to buy their own fireworks and light it. I'm never the one to do that but some of my family members are, so every year we enjoy watching the fireworks together.
