For the last one and a half year I tried to let my hair grow. But how longer it got, my hair was losing volume and was just ‘hanging’. I wasn’t happy about it for a while and was thinking about getting a new haircut. So when I received a message from Jeroen on my Facebook page that he opened a hair salon together with a friend and invited me to come I thought this was the time to chop it off!

Simson is a new hair salon in Utrecht which is run by Jeroen and Evertjan. Both of them worked as a hairdresser for a few years and decided to start their own salon, which opened last December. Evertjan had quite a lot of work on my new bob, and it turned out great! Forgot to make a before and after picture but my hair was about this long.

I’m really happy about it! I’d had a bob a few years ago, so it’s a little bit familiar to me. Still I’m checking my hair in everything where I can catch my reflection! A huge thanks to Evertjan for my new hairdo and for inviting me! I’d heartily recommend Simson to everyone who wants to have a new haircut or is looking for a great, personal hairdresser with a reasonable price (34 euro for washing, cutting and drying). This Saturday is their official opening which is open for everyone who likes to take a look!

I have been given a free haircut by Simson in exchange for writing a review, however this does not effect my review in any way!

Wearing a simple outfit today, I had to go to college and actually should write two assignments right now. Yes, I use my blog as a tool not to study but after publishing this post I really have to do something!

ps. this week I’m doing a no-bread-week to try to come up with great alternatives for bread as I’m, just like a lot of other dutchies, a totally addicted bread-eater. You can follow my breakfasts and lunches on instagram but I’ll write a post about it here at the end of the week! Also, if you have some suggestions for breakfast and lunch (especially lunch-to-go!), please let me know!

Summer weather has arrived! Only for a few days though, but enough reason to grab my all-time favourite summer dress out of the closet. This dress is from the H&M garden collection 2010 and I still love it. My friends make a lot of fun of me as I’m wearing this dress 75% of the time during the summer. I even bought a second one on ebay!

By the way, it has been a while since the last outfit photo. This one is taken just outside my house but I don’t feel really comfortable (yes, even after a few years I still don’t think modelling is my destiny) as the street is quite busy. Well, maybe I’ll get over it. Do you like to see more outfit posts?

Since Acne presented their pistol boots I’ve got a little crush on them. Although there are tons of perfectly fine pistol boots which costs less, I always preferred the Acne pistol boots. So you can imagine how happy I was when I found them in my size on Marktplaats (Dutch ebay)! Since last week I’m the owner of this pair and I can’t be more happy about it.
