I’m the type of girl who loves to spend her money. Next to clothes, shoes and accessories, a lot of my money goes to books. If I had to choose between a new pair of sneakers or a new book, I would definitely go for a new book because I believe something magical can happen when reading a book. I love everything about it: the journey, the feel of turning the pages, the scent…

This Christmas, I got two books from Taschen and I couldn’t be happier. Taschen is an art book publisher founded by  Benedikt Taschen in Cologne, Germany. It’s the place to be for those who love design, fashion, photography,… Althogether: everyone who loves to read quality books should visit Taschen.

TASCHEN 365 Day-by-Day. Fashion Ads of the 20th Century

The first book I got was: 365 Daby-By-Day: Fashion Ads of the 20th Century. It’s a fashionable calender that you can use year after year. Every day comes with a quote and an inspiring image.

Fashion Designers A-Z. Prada Edition

The second book I got is :Fashion Designers A-Z Prada Edition. I got the banana print! What I love about this is that I have one of the 2000 copies that are made in this Baroque-inspired print. Next to the banana-fabric, the book is also available in the feminine tiny “hearts,” the abstract geometric “diamonds,” and a floral fabric reissued for Prada from the 1960 Holliday & Brown archives. The book is crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic! A real eye-catcher!

Label Love: H&M Conscious Collection 2014

631x842xhm-conscious-spring-2014-lookbook18.jpg.pagespeed.ic.RxfmZ4BI3w

First of all, I want te screaaaaam: I’m baaaaaack! It’s been a while, and I’m kind of bummed out about it. I love writing for my blog and it makes me sad when I don’t have the time or inspiration to write. Those who are following me on Instagram may have noticed that I bought a book to help me fight my writer’s block: “642 things to write about.” So prepare yourself for more fashion, more lifestyle and a lot of personal posts, because life has been a rollercoaster lately!

I wanted to start with this label loving because really, you’re gonna be craving every single piece of this H&M Conscious’ Romantic Spring collection. Why is this a ‘Conscious’ collection? For this line, H&M works with environmentally sustainable fabrics for example: organic leather. The collection has an overall romantic vibe with it’s easy breezy fabrics and it’s feminine shapes. Even if you’re a rock chic like me, you will like some pieces that you can spice up, like the black bralet.

The collection will be in stores on April 10th and is only available in selected stores.
