So it was recently brought to my attention that a lot of celebrities have look-alikes. It kind of makes you wonder if there's someone out there that looks a lot like you!
Here of some pictures of celebs I think definitely look alike.

Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale

Dress code: Elegant

So as I told you, on vacation there was a different dress code every night. This night: elegant! I wore a black dress (see http://ekatya.blogspot.be/2012/01/little-black-dress.html), a sparkly necklace with matching earrings, black pumps and some silver eyeshadow.
What do you think?

Club Med Yasmina

So I just got back from a wonderful vacation in Morocco at the Club Med Yasmina!

Even though it rained for 2 days it really was an amazing holiday! We went swimming, played tennis, tried archery, golf, the flying trapeze and so much more :)
Every night there was a dress code: either a color or a style that you should wear. Since you have a limited closet while on vacation, it wasn't always easy to find something suitable. However, it was fun to see how all the guests applied the dress codes.
I wanted to show you guys some of the outfits that I chose.
First night: black and red:
Since I didn't bring any red clothes, I chose a black strapless dress, black purse, black flats and red feather earrings. What do you think?

I'll show you guys some more outfits next time!

Starbucks Cold Cup

So I bought this starbucks cup for my home made smoothies :)
I love to have a fruits-only smoothie in the morning on a hot summer day!
I usually add 1 orange, 1 banana and some black berries & strawberries.
Does anyone have any other recipes for a yummy smoothie?

My home made smoothie :)

Study study study

It's that time of year again: exams. My social life has been put on hold, I have no time to go shopping, or even watch a movie... So I decided to post some study pics. Not very glamorous, but a big part of my life as a med student none the less.

Ice Bra

Haha I just came across a new kind of bra that kind of made me laugh. In Japan due to the extremely hot and humid summers and because they are trying to save energy, Triumph has invented the "ice bra". The cups are filled with a gel that remains soft and supple even when frozen, giving the wearer a cool sensation. The bra features a pair of small fish tanks encompassing the breasts, a traditional Japanese wind chime and a mint leaf. The models are also wearing skirts made of mosquito nets and bamboo shades! What do you think? If you lived in a hot and humid place, would you consider it?

Bag: €16,95 (Six)

Cheap shopping

A couple of days ago I picked up 2 pair of shoes a pair of earrings. I really needed some every day shoes and since I'm a med intern I wanted/needed them to be comfortable. And the earrings I just couldn't resist :p
 Do you guys like them?

The shoes were €12,5 each and the earrings were €6. So the total price was €31 :)

It-girl: Blake Lively

It-girl Blake Lively was born into a showbizz family in California and quickly followed in the footsteps of her parents and sisters, but only truly became famous when she starred in the popular teen drama series Gossip Girl. In the series she plays upper east side it-girl Serena Van der Woodsen, a titel she quickly gained in real life as well. Since the premiere of Gossip Girl in 2007 Blake has been on the cover of Vogue, TeenVogue, Wmagazine, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Nylon, Seventeen and much more around the world. Girls all over the world aspire to look and act like her and men want to be with her. And I think as long as Gossip Girl is running, her popularity is pretty safe :)

It-girl: Cory Kennedy

Cory Kennedy is considered to be the internet's very first it-girl. Cory was born on 21st of Februari 1990 and gained her fame when she met the photographer Mark Hunter (who goes by the alias "The Cobrasnake"). Soon she became a true internet phenomenon at the age of fifteen, and lived from her party girl image. She appeared on the cover of Nylon, Los Angeles Times, The New York Post and some pictures of her even appeared in the Andy Warhol Museum. Eventually she met the fate of every it-girl, she grew up and lost her teenage-party-girl image and with that her fame and fortune...

Hunger Games

Anyone who has not seen Hunger Games, should put on their shoes and go see it right now. I really enjoyed the movie and am SO looking forward to the next one!
The movie is based on the first book of a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins. The second film 'Catching Fire' should appear in about a year.

DIY: laurel wreath

Hey everyone! So in a couple of days I have this Rome-themed party and I thought I'd go for the toga-look.. I just finished making a laurel wreath out of this crown that I had lying around, what do you guys think?

So I basically just cut the same leaf shape out over and over again...

... and then taped them all together!

Really simple and easy to do, but I think it looks all right, don't you?

Jane by design

Good news for all you fashion addicts out there! There's a new tv series that's all about fashion: "Jane by design". It's about a teenage girl who juggles high school and a career in high fashion. The main character is played by Erica Dasher, a young American actrice from Houston, Texas. She's not only an actrice but has also produced a documentary!
Here are some quotes:
Don't Mess With Texas "I'm from Houston—I love big hair, big heels, and lots of makeup. Seriously."

Devout Following "Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Céline, Gareth Pugh, and especially Alexander McQueen have never failed to melt my brain."

Be sure to check it out on abc family!!
