A little get-away in eigen land!

 Little get-away vlakbij huis. Deze dagen mag ik voor twee nachtjes in dit leuke huisje verblijven. En het is echt enorm dichtbij huis!! Het huisje staat namelijk bij het Stayokay hostel in Dordrecht in de Biesbosch. En hoe tof is dit concept! Het zijn hele stijlvolle Wikkelhouses gemaakt van gerecycled karton. En het heeft ook nog eens zijn eigen sanitair. We gaan wel helemaal back to basic, want er is geen WiFi of een televisie. Het is immer de bedoeling om helemaal ‘uit’ te staan en volledig te kunnen genieten van het hier en nu.

Locatie en faciliteiten.

De Wikkelhouses staat bij het Stayokay hostel in de Biesbosch. Het is een hele mooie locatie, want als je de deuren open doet kijk je uit op een stukje rivier van de Merwede. En hoe mooi is het vooral nu wanneer het langzaam aan herfst begint te worden. Ik krijg nu al zin om lekker pasta te maken in het keukentje en het in de buitenlucht op te eten. Wat zo fijn is aan deze lodge is dat je dus je eigen keuken hebt en dus zelf een ontbijtje of een lunch kan klaarmaken. Wat ik al vertelde is dat de lodge beschikt over eigen sanitair, nu het al iets kouder begint te worden is het ideaal om ook lekker warm binnen te blijven.


Wat ik ook zo leuk vind aan de ‘Wikkelhouses’ is dat het echt enorm leuk is ingericht. Het is heel stijlvol in de trend van nu gemeubileerd en het past perfect bij de omgeving. Vanaf de bank kijk je uit op de mooie omgeving van de Biesbosch. Je kunt met vier personen in de lodge slapen, want er is een tweepersoons- en een stapelbed. Zou je het nou ook heel tof vinden om hier een weekendje te slapen? Je kan hier een reservering maken!

Your guide to Autumn’s animal print and how to style it

Animal print is back, but it never really went away. This trend is coming back every year and this year designers went all the way! You can see so many different kinds of animal patterns in stores. I have to say: I needed some time to actually like it. Whether you want to go for the straight-off-the-runway look or want to channel Scary Spice, animal print can be styled in any way you want. Earlier this year, we saw animal prints tear down the runway. Tom Ford went for the bold look with a bright crimson leopard power suit, while Calvin Klein showcased leopard-print statement coats paired with black knitwear and white-laced boots.

Whether it is a coat, a bag or a statement belt, leopoard print is like wearing a red lip. It instantly elevates any outfit and always looks great. The items below are some keypieces like a simple blouse and a dress. The other one is a cool blazer with some mixes trends like oversized, royal plaid and leopard.

As you can see at my photos I wear it all over this time. With the same boots as my dress. But I like to spice it up with a red bag. You can find some similar dress over here.

So I am definitely going to invest more in these kinds of pieces! I hope you loved to see which items I have picked out! Let me know what you think about these trends <3

Sit back and relax with the tea from Tastea + discountcode!

Tastea Ibiza Feelings

“Imagine yourself in the sunny and always cheerful Ibiza with our special. The 100% natural Ibiza tea can support the typical island feeling: Relaxation, joy and enjoyment.” This time I was not in Ibiza, but again at Lago di Garda. At the same place as in Spring. The weather was so great, so I drank this tea while having break of tanning at the pool. The cup is super easy to use, because the tea didn’t come in bags so you can put it in the filter above. So you can take it away or drink at at the campsite, like it do! And the best thing ever is; you can shop the tea and the cup with 10% off with the code; MARIEKE10 at Tastea.eu (valid from 12th until 19th of September). How great is that?! They don’t only have this Ibiza Feelings tea, there is also a detox one and one especially to make your hair and nails stronger. You need to check their website for more info.

Styling my new bedroom with the posters from Desenio

Ciao Bella // Disassembled camera // Flower Fence Neighbours // Scoop it Up // Swimming Girl

Finally the new home is almost ready. Okay almost ready with rebuilding. After that we need to do the styling! But that will be fun I think. Especially to style it with these amazing posters from Desenio. I have picked these out because we already have some pinkish color on the wall with marble paint. Can you see it? it is ofcourse not really like marble, but this is how they call it. It will be more used at Italian homes. So that was the thing I have keep in mind while picking out these posters. I wanted to have some Italian styles ones. I like the words; ‘Ciao Bella’. So this was one I picked out for sure. Than I like those beautiful pastel colored buildings. I wish we had them also over here in the Netherlands. It is so beautiful with the tiny balconies. The one with flowers fits perfectly with the yellow building, because it seems like it is the same fence. Ofcourse I had to pick the icecream poster. It looks so amazing on marble with the gold frame. Which one is your favorite? Now you can shop all the poster and frames with 25% off with the code; MARIEKEKAZEN from 11 until 13 September (except for the ‘handpicked’ and ‘collaboration’ frames and posters). Follow @desenio for more inspiration. Can’t wait to style the rest of the house. I also really like the kitchen posters from Desenio. I think it looks so beautiful with our white and black kitchen with those green walls. Happy shopping everyone.
