Event Report | ”Tick Tock…It’s Luxury O’ Clock.”

What I love the most about blogging is meeting new people. Especially when they welcome you with open arms. This is how I felt by the invite from lovely Mentari, the owner of Labeldeluxe.nl. The press event was hosted in Amsterdam at a pop-up store. The shop was small, I loved it. It gave me warmth and a personal feeling. It looked also very chic, what you could expect from luxury stores.

Speaking about luxury, when I look at the watches from Label Deluxe, I wander myself in luxury heaven. Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Karl Lagerfeld and Furla are some names you can find at the web shop. As you know me, I’m a sucker for classic items and I assure you you’ll find them at Label. Not only they have watches, but also jewelry. Which not only looks beautiful on your wrists, fingers, neck or ears but even in your jewelry box! It is also the perfect gift to give to loved ones. With Christmas right around the corner, is a timeless piece a worthy gift to give. It stays forever and never goes out of style. Absolutely the definition of long lasting!

Luxury equals popping bottles! Even though I don’t drink alcohol, these bottles are definitely eyecatchers. Especially now that there is a beautiful story behind the glitter bottles. The ingredients are vegan and organic. You also don’t need to be worried about the glitters on the bottles. The sparkle is eco-friendly! Which means biodegradable. Not only does Foodboard.nl think about the environment, but also the people. When you purchase the limited-edition bottles, the profit goes straight to a specialist center for people with COPD. It stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The disease narrows the lungs, you literally want to gasp air. The bubbles of the chardonnay or prosecco represents air (bubbles) we can’t live without. I couldn’t agree more with their feel good, look good, do good motto!

Beauty Brands Agency was also present at the press event. I loved so much talking to the owner! She told me about the agency and the brands her agency represents. What I love about their work, is that they have a unique way to reach their brands and consumers. Their 360° brand activation strategy is a perfect approach for it. What I also love, is that they name the brands love brands. The brands are from all over the world and Beauty Brands Agency shares their beauty secrets.

When I think about luxury, I think about gold. The Devine Sensation body and facial sprays from Beaudelor.nl has literally golden leaves for a natural glow. I tried it at the event, I’m hooked! Imagine my happiness when I found an sample in the goodie bag. The key ingredients are gold and cashmere, definitely two ingredients to feel luxury on your skin.

The beauty world is very innovative. I was surprised to hear that Nomige.com works with your DNA and your own personal lifestyle to make products that exactly matches your DNA and lifestyle. Sounds so interesting! Using science for beauty is without a doubt the definition of luxury. Don’t be surprised about the price tag! Then again, you’ll have something unique based only on your skin type.

I had such an amazing time. Especially because I went with my big brother. After the press event we had dinner and fun as dessert. It was a perfect day!

Event Report | BuyLau – Influencer Closet Sale.

I went with my sister to the influencer closet sale hosted by Laura Ponticorvo. She is a Dutch-Italian media personality. I was invited by the sweet owner of LabelDeluxe.nl. Not only do I feel blessed for getting the opportunity to attend an event, I also get to meet new people and I love this the most. So, back to the event loves, clothes! Clothes! Clothes! I wandered in a stalls Walhalla of different goodies. From makeup to hair extensions to cupcakes. It was a mix of everything!

They thought about everything. A DJ fixed the music, a small food truck was available and plenty photograph backgrounds and boots to shoot pictures. As the name of the event says it: there was a lot of Dutch influencers holding their closet sales. I saw some familiar faces who I sometimes watch on their YouTube channels. Some I didn’t have a clue, but it was nice to see a glimpse of their closets.

The event had a dress code, it was black and white with a touch of gold. On my Instagram you could see the white that I wore with the touch of gold. Of course, I wore my Just Cavalli golden heart bracelet!

I saw many colorful clothes and this bohemian style caught my eyes. Same goes for denim, I love denim! A good pair of jeans just never goes out of style.

Of course, I visited the stall from LabelDeluxe. All those arm candies were a joy to look at! Did you know that they also sell Furla, Versace and more luxury items? Definitely your time and purchase worth. Not only does a good jewelry piece add flair into your outfit, it stays always as a classic item in your jewelry box if you decide not to wear it.

Event Report | Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam. #MBFWA

Fashion week Amsterdam has come to an end and I still have an ecstatic after feeling. This was my first fashion week attendance and I loved every bit of it. I went to the catwalk show from Sophia Bentoh and Sunanda Chandry Koning. Both designers showed their collection with a message and it was loud and clear.

Sophia Bentoh went back to her roots. Her collection Ibileye which means ‘’beautiful as a precious piece of fabric’’ is a contrast of African prints meets pop/punk. It was beautifully outspoken on the catwalk. It is a mix and match of colours and clothing pieces for men and women. She draws the prints by herself and prints it with a screen-print on the clothing. Not only she makes figurative prints from African origin, but also symbols that we all know like peace signs, spikes and safety pins.

Sophia comes from a creative family. Her father is a sculptor and her mother a doctor that makes her own clothes. Her passion for fashion started right from her home. With her personal memories, culture and hard work: Ibileye was born. I like that she got inspired by her roots. As a Moroccan, I can truly appreciate traditional clothing that represents my culture. Because of this I felt a connection with her collection.

The models she chose for the catwalk are individually unique, not the models you used to know. Same goes for the models from designer Sunanda. Her clothing collections comes with messages like make love not war and gender acceptance. She uses many twins as models with the thought to represent connectivity in her clothing. She showed her capsule collection Behemoth. Unfinished clothing pieces were at the end free to take because she stripped her models into white tops and underwear. Expect for two twin models who she let walk topless on the catwalk. It was not clear what to do with the clothing that she left. I looked it up online and find out that the unfinished clothing was free to take to make it your own by her or yourself. I like the thought behind it, nothing is perfect. Make it your own. Too bad it wasn’t clear for the audience.

I had such a lovely day! I went with my sister and made it a girl’s day out. It was interesting to experience the event. Even if you curious just to see how a fashion show looks like, you would be impressed by the music you hear and the people around you.

I had the change to go to Glamour Magazine Fashion-Vintage Live event. The Dutch Glamour has a cross-media expansion that’s called Fashion-Vintage and Glamour Concept Store. On both sites you have the possibility to buy and sell your clothes and even at the Concept Store you can pitch your brand to get featured! Amazing right?

As a subscriber to their magazine I had the opportunity to go snoop in many goodies from Glamour readers, many bloggers, Glamour workers and famous Dutch people. As I was wandering through the stands I saw nice goodies but also many goodies that sellers are selling them for prices that I wouldn’t buy it for. To be honest.

I did like snooping trough the goodies from well-known Dutch stylist By Danie. I was curious what she wears, especially in her free time. Too bad many things of her did not fit me, our shoe sizes don’t match. The faux fur letters on the pink sweater from Glamour Concept Store caught my eye. So fluffy!

As I was looking my eyes out during the Fashion Walhalla I got a bit thirsty so I was pleased to find a smoothie bar. The juices were made just the right way, not to sour. While I was sipping on my juice I saw these beautiful kimonos. I like to prints on it, what a Summer vibe! Glamour was even so thoughtful for their visitors. You could feel like a princess because there were make-up artists happy to make a perfect look for you.

Everything comes to an end. When I wandered a last round trough the stands I went with a good feeling about the day home. My ticket was included with goodie bag. And I was glad to find lovely goodies in it! I like the to-go cup and planning to do a review about the Aveda Body Salt.

To be continued Loves!

IMG_2673

I was invited to MooiPr Happy Day where I got introduced to new collections and brands. If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (SaidaSnaps) you would see a glimpse of the beautiful new collections of Swarovski, Omoda, Silhouette, OPI & Mi Moneda. I was truly impressed by Swarovski from the moment I walked in! The sparkles of the crystal made me feel like a kid in a candy store. So many colours! I love it!

Swarovski.

Not only is Swarovski well known for their crystals but also till today a family company run by 5th generation family members! Such a beautiful loyalty. Their new collection is inspired by the many coral reefs. You would see different colours than you used to see from Swarovski. The colours like sea blue, golden brown and sweet rose pearls are eye candy’s.

Atelier Swarovski is known of their high fashion collections. They collaborated with Miranda Kerr and H&M and having new collaborations with Jean Paul Gaultier and Frederikson Stallard. I know Jean Paul Gaultier as a designer who focusses on the beauty of imperfections. You can see this too in the collection with Swarovski. The golden brown necklaces have imperfect crystals that I truly like. It shows me that imperfections are beautiful too! Frederikson Stallard wanted to show with their Swarovski collection that you should protect the things you truly love. It is shown at their design. The crystals are saved in a ‘’cage’’. What a beautiful thought.

Mi Moneda.

Mi Moneda “My Coin” in Spanish is a luxurious brand inspired by vintage coins that creates a spiritual sense. You can change the coin to your own feeling and thoughts! Your own personalized necklace, who doesn’t what like that? Now they introduced the changeable bar necklace “Take What You Need’’. Designer Michelle got inspired by women all over the world. Talking about women empowering! The story behind it is mainly to make you feel comfortable in your own life. To give you a small reminder that everything is going to be alright because we all worry about the little things in life. This bar necklace is very stylish and fashionable! The design is minimalistic and can be chosen in three colours. Silver, gold and rose gold. The colours of this autumn! The changeable bar can be changed for a bar already designed by Take What You Need or you can personalize your own bar. Isn’t that amazing?

Silhouette.

Authentic eyewear since 1964, Austrian made. The eyewear is based on beauty and harmony. The most demanding requirements in terms of design are to let the individuality of the wearer shine. The designs are sleek and timeless. What impressed me the most is the frame of the glasses. It is weightless! Whenever you put it on you feel that you have no glasses on at all. And with the many designs there is something for everyone.

O.P.I.

The perfect nail polish to every woman. They focus on beautiful coloured fingernails and taking care of them. Using a base coat and a top coat after you use the colour of your choice is very important. O.P.I. is a professional nail care industry that is committed to give their users safety and innovation. The brand is also well known of their exceptional formula, fashionable colours and iconic names! Did you see the light of their Starlight Collection? Beautiful!
