One of my best friends Danielle has a really cool style and it was also her that came up with the idea of giving me an Iro jacket for my birthday which I'm so grateful for. She often finds clothes online in the US and knows labels that are still not known by most fashionistas in Europe. We have talked for years about starting our own business selling clothes online and I hope one day that we are able to do that.
The pictures are from the day I had my birthday party and she was about to go out to a club wearing Iro, Levi's shorts and top from Nasty Gal. It was also her that did my make up on my birthday (and my nails) so she really has a hidden talent. She is a Law student but besides from her hidden talents in doing other people's make up and nails, she also has hidden talents in designing clothes. We have been friends for 18 years now and have travelled the world together. The last few years I haven't been able to travel with her that much but we always have the best time travelling together as we are so similar holiday wise. One of my best holidays in the US are with her staying with her family in LA and not doing much else than relaxing by the pool reading a good book, going to the beach and last but not least going shopping. With one small child and another on the way it seems ages away but I hope to still be able to do that sometime and get the best of both worlds. Until then I can dream of my next holiday in four months time which won't go to the US but to Thailand.
