Hi batsies, Welcome (back), time for a new post! I’ve spent  10/11/12 February in London with Psychara for Attitude Holland, and it was awesome. We spent the Saturday shooting, but that will be a different posts once all the results are finished and approved ;) On Sunday and Monday we went to London Edge. Even though some of my favourite brands aren’t present at London Edge (anymore) I still love going there. This time there were a lot of new and smaller brands and I think that might just be even better than all the big ones. We’ve decided to start out on the highest floor, where the smallest brands were located, and we immediately bumped into some pretty cool ones. Metallimonsters was absolutely adorable, making cute gothic looks for kids… if only there were around when I was little. One dress was even called “Dusk”! Next up was Tatjana…

Hi batsies <3 Sorry for the immense delay on this post. I’ve been working on my own little webshop Jar of Dusk. It’s taking up all my free time, but hopefully it will be worth it! The launch is planned for October 13th., I would love it if you can follow my pages on Instagram or Facebook to help me out a little bit. I’ll be selling magical, organic tea and herb blends, make-up and skincare. All beautiful, natural and animal- and environmently friendly. But let’s get back to why you’re probably here; the photoshoot with ReeRee Phillips and Psychara for Attitude Holland. I still find it strange in a way that I actually got the opportunity to shoot with these two gorgeous women. It was such a lovely day! They’re both very kind and extremely easy to shoot with. Luckily enough the weather was nice as well so we were…

Hi batsies, I’m well aware that it has been over a week since AttitudeFest and that this blog is quite late… I was planning to wait on the aftervideo, since we still haven’t received the final version I just decided to write now and add the video later. And well it took some time for me to get back on track as well, AttitudeFest is always taking up soo much of my time and energy. Maybe even more afterwards than before, when you finally get some rest and your body decides to abuse that, haha. Anyways: AttitudeFest! This year I was responsible for the Miss & Mr. Alternative contest and therefore I had to spend most of my time backstage… helping out the models and being the bad cop for keeping them backstage and controling the planning (sorry again). But the times I did go to the festival grounds I…

Hello my batsies <3 It’s almost a week ago since I was walking around on London Edge with Attitude Holland already! I want to go back… It’s been quite an intense week so far with quitting my job at Zara (too much working for free, never getting a compliment and I felt like we were all turning into different people. At London Edge I just realised that the “alternative” world is so much better and nicer so for now I want to focus on my photography/blogging/make-up etc again :) So good news for you guys! More me, haha.) and getting a new research and treatment for my health which had some results that I still have to wrap my head around a little bit… But for now it’s just time to tell you about the awesome start of the week: London Edge! At first when I heard that all the…

Hee batsies, I guess it’s a bit too late to wish you all a Happy New Year right? Back when I wrote my previous post I thought that by now I would have settled in Leeuwarden a bit more and have less hours at Zara (more like the 20 a week I signed for) and a bit more time to spare… but I guess that was way too optimistic. Turns out I’m still in a bit of the same mess, not even having the time to construct the furniture I got. But I did finally put part of my clothes in a dresser, step 1 has been taken, haha. Most of my clothes and items are still in Enschede but guess what, don’t have time to get those to Leeuwarden either. But still being optimistic that soon I will get less hours and be able to do all those things.…

Hi my lovely bats, last Saturday it was finally here: Attitude Fest! And I’m still extremely tired, but it was a great succes! It was so lovely to see a lot of people enjoying our little festival. Though I wished more people would support the bands instead of waiting in line for a free tattoo drawing or hairdye… But I guess people have their own priorities. So far I have only heard positive feedback from visitors so that’s really great. Of course there were (loads of) things that didn’t go as planned and I did spent my day running around fixing problems, but as long as the visitors didn’t really notice it’s not that bad right? I gave a small photography workshop but since I was stressing around a bit it didn’t really go that smooth… still I hope people enjoyed it and learned from it as well. I’m a…

Hi batsies <3 So sorry for the silence over here, organising Attitude Fest is taking all my energy… (but only 1 week left!! and then other cool things will follow). But in the meantime we did shoot the new lookbook (at the Attitude Fest location)! I must admit that at first when I heard the concept, pastel grunge, I really didn’t see how that would fit my style, but I love how it turned out in the end! And I even want to buy some of the items now… always a problem, haha. Anyway I have to get back to organising stress again so that’s it for now. You can view the lookbook below. And will I see you at Attitude Fest? I’ll be giving a photography workshop as well (and at the moment I’m typing it I realise I still have to prepare that as well… bye bye sleep).…

Good evening, did you all have a nice easter weekend? I had, well sort of, I had a bike accident and got my foot caught in the wheel, (yes what normally happens to small children only, I’m just that lucky) but aside from that it was a lovely weekend! Sunday evening my friends band Super Star Gods played the support show for Spiritual Beggars at Neushoorn Poppodium. It was a very small stage but the shows and the entire vibe of the evening were extremely good! The best way to spent your easter evening is at a rock show, right? Unfortunately I had the bike accident the day of the show so my foot and leg were killing me that evening (my New Rock heels did save the evening a bit though, since it did hurt way less when standing on 7 inch heels) so I only took some photos…

Hey again! Last Sunday morning I did this amazing magical dark shoot with Busra Karayavuz and I think you guys might like the results as well. It was quite impulsive because I just wanted to do a quick shoot to have a new photo to expand my make-up & hair styling portfolio, but it turned out so much better than I expected. We just make a great team! haha. What most people don’t know is that when I bought my first camera I did so because I used to make a lot of fantasy photomanipulations and I got tired of always working with other people’s photos… But then I brought my camera with me to a concert and then got into concertphotography and I never really started photomanipulations with my own pictures. Quite strange isn’t it? Guess you never know what will happen. But now I also have my make-up…

Hey batsies, last week I did a very fun photoshoot with Super Star Gods again, this time in a big photostudio. Some of you who know me a bit better might know  that I’m not the biggest fan of shooting in a studio but I’m really happy with the result! I think it turned out quite rock & roll and unique even though it’s in a studio, and the studio gives it a bit more fashionable edge which I like as well. What do you think? oh and a little update: I’m still super busy for make-up school but I already graduated on hairstyling! Now I’m planning some extra shoots to update my portfolio with make-up and hairstyling as well. So if you have a cool idea and would love to shoot with me (including make-up and hair by me) let me know! All the bats, Sharon
