Pasir Panjang Beach

April 1, 2016

Location: Pasir Panjang Beach, Kai Islands-Indonesia



Finally I am back with a new post everyone! We arrived safely at the Kai islands more then a week ago. The Kai islands are a very remote group of islands located in the east of Indonesia. Both my grandparents were born here. Can you imagine my excitement visiting this beautiful place for the first time in my life and meeting family members for the first time? It has been an thrilling and emotional roller coaster so far. 

Being somewhere far on a remote island has it's great advantages. First the peace and quite and slow pace of living does wonders for the soul. This place is the perfect spot to do a digital detox. Everything is so beautiful, it's easy to forget about your phone and laptop. Second, the people are so friendly and kind, it warms your heart. I am taking it all in with great joy. although there are a lot of things I have to get used to here.....






 




Hello Bali

March 20, 2016

Location: Indonesia



Hey everyone

I am sitting at the airport in Surabaya Indonesia while typing this to you guys. We landed in Bali safely and sound after a very long flight from Amsterdam four days ago. Today we are flying to the very remote Maluku islands which will take all day and three planes. Not an easy task for a nervous flyyer like me, but hey I am a happy camper because Emiel is with me and I am finally getting to see the island where my grandparents were born.

The first days in Bali was really all about getting some much needed rest and doing absolutely nothing than eating and drinking at the best places and hanging out at our hotel rooftop pool. We were staying at the U-Paasha Hotel in  the trendy city of Seminyak which was great. Beautiful big rooms, right in the heart of everything and a lovely staff taking care of all our needs.  I was thinking about shooting a bikini post for you guys at their fabulous pool, but honestly for the first time in ages I was way too tired for it. I hope you guys can understand that after four years of blogging and a twenty four flight a girl needs to unplug and some time for a serious recharge.  Of course I will take tons of photos during this six week trip to share with you guys. So lots of summer outfits coming up to hopefully inspire you for summer coming up. Here a few snaps taken on the roof of the hotel to give you guys an idea of how stunning Bali really is. For the first time in my life I got sunburned really bad by just walking in the sun for half an hour. Seriously the sun is brutal here and and the temps are high. I am not complaining. This trip is pure heaven. I have to run now because we will be boarding in half an hour and flying to Ambon city.Yay!

Talk to you all soon!

With love from Indonesia







 

Happy International Women's Day

March 8, 2016



To all my lovely ladies out there, because you are all so very dear to me.

I have always loved this beautiful quote, so I want to share it with you on this special day. 

 

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” 

 - Audrey Hepburn

Happy International Women's Day everyone!  


With love Tamara Chloé



 


 

13 Must-Haves To Rock The Rose Gold Trend


March 5, 2016 




There is nothing more glam than the rose gold trend that has been going on for a while now. Think rose gold on bronzed skin with an all white outfit or pair it with black, brown, coral and camel tones for a sexy sophisticated sparkle, Rose gold mixes beautifully with silver jewelry and white pearls and looks stunning with anything pastel. I picked out a few favorites that make me long for summer like there is no tomorrow. The good news is; we are leaving for Bali soon, so I am totally stocking up.  

My rose gold obsession really kicked in when I finally got my new iPhone 6s in this hue two days ago. I just had to grab a pretty phone case that would still show off the beautiful rose gold details. I am not a big fan of phone cases that completely cover the phone. This see through case filled with 24K real gold foil is a real show stopper and soooo my cup of tea. I just can't seem to take my eyes off my phone now LOL. One of my other rose gold favorites is the fabulous wood watch by Jord which you can also see me wear here. Which item is your fave?

Outfit - Shearling

February 24, 2016





For some reason I am already on spring mode and it shows, because lately I keep reaching for pastel colored clothing. To keep it all winter proof, I chose to pair this gorgeous boho inspired Shein dress with a cozy shearling coat and over-the-knee boots to keep me warm. I should have worn some tights, but hey I thought bare legs look better on photos and I didn't want some black sheers to mess up the beautiful color pallete, so what can I say. Fashion over comfort right?




 



Creating A Date Night Make - Up With E.L.F. Cosmetics

Besides my huge love for anything fashion, beauty products and cosmetics have always been one of my favorite things. Getting dolled up for a night out is something I just love, and besides creating the perfect outfit, beautiful make-up is in my opinion essential. One of my favorite things to do is going on a date night with my love Emiel. We both love trying new foods at our favorite restaurants and lounging afterwards at either a trendy hot spot in town or a cozy cafe in the area. When ever we go out I always try to create a new look to surprise him.

When E.L.F. Cosmetics reached out to me to create a make-up look with a few of their products, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to create a evening look for you guys. Emiel does not like too much make-up on me. I am one of those lucky gals, he prefers me with no make-up at all. He does love it in the right amounts though, so on our date nights I like to keep it light, yet glamorous enough to feel like it is a special occasion, which of course it always is.

Hey everyone


I just wanted to stop by and say a quick hello to you all, and share the news that me and the boy Emiel will be traveling to Indonesia again next month. Yay I am so incredibly excited! Six full weeks we will be gone, enough time to really get to explore this gorgeous place.  Bali is on the list and this time we will also be traveling to the very remote Kei islands in south east Indonesia where both our grandparents were born. 

I am beyond excited, because visiting my ancestors birth island will be the first time for me. Emiel has already been there twice, so for me visiting the first time is extra special. I can't wait to meet all the family who are still living there, all the amazing shopping I can do, and of course visit the most amazing beach and nightclubs and beautiful nature we can to explore. Of course I will be sharing all the travels with you guys here on the blog. I am also thinking of doing a few vlogs, so stay tuned for that too!

Of course I am already planning and shopping all the cute outfits I want to pack. I am thinking lots of boho styles and seventies flare. Cute shorts, skirts and rompers. Easy breezy maxi dresses with colorful sandals and of course swimsuits in every color possible. Bali is the place to really go all out when it comes to colorful summer wear. With constant hot temps, no need to layer your clothing and get that much needed sun tan.

Already on vacation mode, I wanted to share a few snaps of our Bali trip last summer just to get in the mood.

Hope you all enjoy!
