Happy Holidays!!


Happy Holidays everyone!!!!
I wanted to wish everyone a merry Chirstmas, 
I hope everyone has great plans with family/friends.
I won't be doing anything fancy,
 I'm going to spend the holidays with family and have some quality time :)
Unfortunately, that means that there won't be any 'Look Of The Days'..
However, if you're looking for some last minute inspiration for party outfits,
have a look at 'Lilly & Vannah's Festive Lookbook' here.
That's all for now..

Look Of The Day: 'Homies' Keep it Simple!


So the day I wore this outfit was actually my 'I don't care, I'm so cold' day.
I guess somethings always happen when you expect them the least.
Everyone told me how pretty I looked, how they loved the outfit and the hair.
All I could think was 'really??' I didn't even make an effort to look good today!
Sometimes, however, it's not only about how you look on the outside.
It's very important that you feel good from the inside as well! 
Other people can feel that I guess.
Yes, this day was definetely one of those 'good' days!
Seems like whenever you feel great from the inside,
 there's no need to make an effort to look good on the outsie as well.

Lots Of Love,

New In Part 1: Shoes, Socks and Accessoires


If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I hardly ever buy myself socks.
Honestly, I don't know why I never buy them! I just don't like to waste any money on them.
However, last month I've been slightly obsessed with these cute frilly socks. 
I just adore how they look with a grungy outfit. They instantly make everything a bit softer!
Something I do love to buy, but hardly ever do buy, are shoes!
Lately, I've really tried to stay away from the cheaper shoes and buy more expensive ones.
Just because they're better for my feet and, those shoes are usually prettier!
As I said, I've tried and failed a few times (including now).
 Mostly due to the fact that I don't have enough money to buy more expensive shoes that often.
And you know how much I love to buy a lot... 
Actually, the last shoes I bought were the cut-out boots! I bought those about 4 months ago!
Since I needed some new pairs of winter shoes, I decided to go for expensive and cheap ones.
This is indeed the first part of another 'New In' series.. 
Everytime I buy so much that I have to split the post in two! Oops?!
Anyway, I uploaded a haul on 'Lilly and Vannah' including these items.
You can check the video out here!

Lots Of Love,

Look Of The Day: Mysteriously Black


Sometimes it's nice to add a little detail to an all black outfit.
To make a simple outfit a bit more interesting, I decided to wear my kimono!
I love how kimonos can really change an oufit, making it look like you actually made an effort.
While in fact, all you did was adding the kimono!
Since I wanted to accentuate the burgundy, I paired this outfit with my bright red bag.
Also, these trousers are actually new!
You're going to see them in the coming 'New In' post, I just coulnd't resist wearing them already!
I've been wanting a pair of black trousers like these for so long, but somehow I never really found the right ones. 
Even now, unfortunately, they are slightly too big.
 I decided to keep them anyway because I'm not sure if a smaller size will even fit me..
Oh the love-hate relationship I have with online shopping... 
For now, a belt is enough to keep them from falling though!

Lots of Love,

Savannah

Look Of The Day: A Night Out


Last week Lisa and I went to see the musical "Jerysey Boys"!
We had such a fun evening and we really enjoyed the musical.
It was actually my first musical ever, which made my evening even more exciting!
I don't know if it's just this musical that I like in particular, or that I like musicals in general,
but I had such a great experiece!
I'd love to go to a musical again, it's nice to do something slightly different every now and then.
Since it was my first musical ever, I had no idea what was an appropriate outfit to wear?
I thought that people would dress up a little...
Unfortunetely, I was wrong, which resulted in me being super overdressed!
Thank goodness Lisa wore a pair of some killer wedges, so we both were pretty high heeled.
Anyway, I guess it's not such a bad thing to stand out sometimes...
I love this outift, however, and I still think it's approriate for a musical.
The blouse gives this outfit  a chique effect and I am in love with the shorts!
Also, it has been such a long time since I wore such high heels!
I was worried that I might have lost my 'skills' but I didn't.
I can still walk on them like they're sneakers, ha!

Lookbook: Rainy Days Inspiration


Whenever it's raining outside, it's cold and the sky is grey, 
I'm completely clueless about what to wear.
You might have the same problem!
That's why I thought it would be fun to film a 'Rainy Days Lookbook'.
It's just a short video with some outfits I've worn on rainy days,
 or outfits I'm going to wear on rainy days.
You can watch the video here on Lilly & Vannah, the channel and blog I share with my friend!
I hope you'll be inspired by the looks!

Lots Of Love,

Savannah

Look Of The Day: Knee Socks!


Don't you just love a pair of some 'old school' knee socks?
I absolutely love that they're back!
I decided to make my knee sock 'debut' with a black skater skirt and a crop top.
This outfit reminds me a bit of a school uniform with the skirt and the socks!
But I don't think there's a school with a crop top as a part of it's uniform hahaha!
The shoes also look a bit like loafers, which gives it even more school uniform vibes!
Well, I guess it's not such a bad thing; 
I am a student after all!
However, I do feel like if I had to wear a school uniform I'd be happy on one hand, because it makes things a bit easier since you don't have to worry about what to wear every single day!
But on the other hand, wearing the same thing every day must be so frustrating!
A school with a uniform from Monday until Wednesday, and free choice for the rest of the week would be perfect, wouldn't it?
Anyway, let's not worry about this too much, we don't even have school uniforms in The Netherlands :p

Lots Of Love,

Look Of The Day: EMA Alien?


As promised, but reaaally late, my EMA outfit!
The theme was 'out of this world alien', but I wasn't really in for dressing up crazily.
So this is what I came up with! 
My top was pretty bright and the hair is not exactly what I'd call normal...
No I am just kidding, I had no intentions to look like an alien at all!
I just wanted to wear something I like.
Since I've had this outfit for quite some time now, and never really knew when to wear it, I figured that it would be fun to wear this to the EMAs!
It's pretty appropriate for an award show right?
It might be the fact that this outfit is from Topshop, or the fact that I am in love with all things Oxford street, but I absolutely adore this outfit! 
Don't you just love the top, with the gems and the neon colours. 
And the skirt is so amazing it has to be one of my favorites! 
I honeslty think that my friends and Idressed up a bit to much compared to the other people in the audience. But who cares! We felt amazing, we probably looked amazing as well and we had the time of our lives!
Oh how I wish I could experience it all one more time!

Lots Of Love,

Savannah

Look Of The Day: Comfy and Casual



There's no need to always dress up, right? Sometimes you have to keep it simple.
Just like the expression: 'Less is more'. 
I personally really love this outfit. First of all, because I adore parkas.
Secondly, I love the necklace and the jeans. Thirdly, I am obsessed with my new bag.
So to sum this all up for you, I am basically wearing all the items I really love!
The best part? It's all very comfortable as well!
I couldn't ask for more!
As you can see, I did step out of my comfort zone.
I wore my hair in a high ponytail, which I hardly ever do!
Usually I just leave my hair the way it is. 
Somehow I thought it looked really nice with this outfit though!
It made it all a bit more edgy!
I will certainly wear my hair like this again!

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

MTV EMA Show


Was this already a week ago?
No way. It feels like I still have to go?
Words can't describe how amazing it was to experience a MTV award show!
I literally had one of the best nights of my life!
All the artists I saw perform, or hand out an award, it all felt so unreal.
I have to apologise for writing this post so late.
School is just so overwhelming especially in combination with being very tired.
Anyway, I just have to share my wonderful experience with you!
So, you all know that I recently started a YouTube channel and a blog with my friend.
I have covered our entire 'EMA Day' on that blog here is the link: http://lillyandvannah.blogspot.nl/2013/11/vlog-mtv-ema-experience.html
We also made a vlog of our time at the EMAs: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoqY91crcAZpoSDyi7w4t8A
I am so sorry that I am not writing a seperate post, but right now I just don't have time!
Let me know what you thought about the show if you watched it!
Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Wish List: Dr Martens


Oh, I want these killer boots so badly!
I love how grungy they are, but you can still dress them up with a cute dress.
As soon as I finally buy them, I know that I will wear them a lot!
The reason why I want these burgundy coloured ones, 
is because I already have black cut-out boots which I wear all the time!
Also, because I absolutely love burgudy!
You already know this from last winter do you?
Believe it or nor, this color is actually pretty easy to combine!
You can wear burgundy with almost anythung!
Anway it's my goal to buy these boots next month,
so hopefully I won't have to wait any longer!
I just want my Dr Martens ASAP!! 
Just a few more weeks, I've got to be patient...

Lots Of Love,
Savannah 

Look Of The Day: Disco Fever meets Punk Rock


You know how much I love this coat right?
I believe I won't have to tell you that once again!
So for this post, I am going to tell you how much I love these disco pants.
You either love them or you absolutely hate them. 
Somehow I fell in love with these quite funny looking trousers!
Believe it or not, they are also very comfortable!
I could literally wear them every day.
Anyway, don't you just love this outfit? 
I don't know why, but I absolutely adore it!
It might be the fact that I'm wearing my favorite items at the moment all togheter.
(it's quite funny that I can actually combine my favorite items together in one outfit!)
Or it might be the fact that I had such an amazing day with my best friend..
Or it might be because these are the first LOTD pictures with my new hair colour?
Whatever it might be, I am definetely going to wear this outfit again!
I love it too much to just wear it once.

Lots Of Love,
Savannah 

New In: Autumn/Winter Essentials


For me the best part about changing seasons must be the shopping..
I have to admit, autumn is beautiful though,
with all the leaves falling from the trees and the warm orange colour they turn into.
The only thing I don't like that much is the rain.
If autumn wouldn't involve rain it woulde be my favorite season, for sure!
Anyway, the rain and the dropping temperatures are the perfect excuse to shop for jumpers.
So, that is exaclty what I did and not only jumpers, but also other seasonal must-haves!
I hope you like my new items just as much as I do.
Have you already bought your autumn/winter essentials?

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Where did the blonde go??


After walking around with half dyed hair for almost a year,
 I finally decided to dye my hair again!
Honestly, I absolutely loved the ombré look and I don't regret it at all!
It's just that after almost a year I got a bit tired of it..
That, and the fact that now the entire population of The Nehterlands decided to go ombré.
Seeing literally over 75% of the people in my school with ombré hair, 
 I figured it was really time to change my hair colour.
In fact, I have been doubting about a colour I could dye my hair in since the summer!
It was a nerve-racking decision to make with a lot of 'what if's'..
Finally, I got the guts to just make the appointment at the hairdresser two weeks ago.
Actually, this is the first time I've dyed my entire hair, like from the roots till the ends!
You can imagine how nervous I was! 

More exciting news!


This has been such a great week already!
I have to admit that I am still very exhausted from the exam week,
but other than that, good things have been happening!
This Sunday I went to Amsterdam with two friends to audition for the EMAs.
No, I am not going to perform or anything! Hahaha!
The EMAs are based in Amsterdam this year, which is really exciting since I live near the city!
As soon as I found out I had one goal; getting tickets for the award show!
I can't even believe it myself, but I reached that goal?!
As I said, I auditioned with two friends, the auditions were called 'Scream Auditions'. 
All they did was basically testing your enthusiasm..
Anyway, we managed to win the tickets for the mainshow which means that I am actually going to the EMAs!!!!!
You have no idea how excited I am! I think the word 'excited' is an understatement?
Literally, it's all I can think about now! 
I've got my outfit ready, so prepare yourself for loads of pictures and videos! 
I've already got a little anouncement video for you on my shared YouTube channel: 
Have you been to an award show? Make sure you're gonna watch this one!
You might see me on tv!! (OMG)

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

The Surprise!

So we finally managed to 'upload' our surprise!!
My friend Lisa and I have a YouTube channel called Lilly & Vannah!
I am so excited to upload videos on YouTube.
Thank goodness I found someone who wants to do it with me, 
because I am a little bit scared to do it alone!
Here is the link to our first video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRt-7o3jNAw
I hope you like it! 
Let me know what you think about it!
Are you excited to see more videos??

Lots Of Love,

New In: Primark Sale


Do you know that feeling when you go to a store, in this case Primark, 
to buy just one thing you need, but decide to have a 'quick' look around the store,
and end up with a bunch of items from the sale you don't need?..
Yeah? Well this is exaclty what happened to me. 
I went to Primark to see if I could get a new scarf for a coat I've been wanting to buy.
So, I found my scarf, and decided to do a quick round through the store...
Oh how I wish I wouldn't have done that! 
Just my luck -I am lucky though- there was a huge sale, with all these amazing items!
Honestly, everything was so cheap I just couldn't resist buying.

Of course, just sale items aren't enough for me. 
I had to buy a few items from the new collections as well.
Sometimes I really regret having a Primark in our centre....
I would've saved a lot of money if we didn't have this precious store!
Seriously though, Primark is an abolute life saver when you need something.
I can't imagine my life without a Primark anymore :p

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Huge Surprise!

Me and my bestie during our surprise!!

First of all I'd like to say that I'm so sorry for my abcense.
As you know I recently started going to university, 
which is exhausting and time consuming!
Right now, I am about to start my first exam week and I am so nervous!
Hopefully I'll be fine... 
To apologize for my absence, my best friend and I have a huge surprise!
By huge I mean enormous, amazing, maybe even unexpected?
Alright, it's obviously not only to apologize, but mainly because it's been a dream of ours.
However, if everything works out we will 'launch' our surprise this week!
Aren't you so excited?? I know I am! I hope you'll like it!
So make sure to check my blog this week!
Just a few more days.....

Lots Of Love,
Savannah 

Look Of The Day: I L O V E This Dress


Ok, so I am not going to comment on this coat anymore..
Honestly I don't what I am thinking, maybe that is the problem.
The problem is that I'm not thinking!! I just wear this coat every single day.
But you know what? I'm not rich so I don't have that many coats anyway.
The ones I do have, I absolutely adore and I want to wear them every day.
The weather kinda forces me to wear a coat every day :p
Anyway I wasn't going to comment haha!
I just got this dress and I love how comfortable it is!
While wearing this dress you don't even know that you're not in your PJs anymore!
I'll probably wear this dress a lot.. I might even buy the other colors as well!
 The era of the dresses is about to begin... Prepare yourself!

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Look Of The Day: ''Homies do it better"


Please don't judge me for wearing this coat the enitre week!!
Sometimes when you love an item, you just wear it all the time.
Right now the weather is just right for this coat as well.
Anyway, it has to be one of my favorite items!!
Just like these trousers, I absolutely adore them.
This outfit has me written all over it.
The coat and the trousers are kind of chic, which I love,
 and the Homies t-shirt just makes it a little bit more casual. 
Of course I had to add my signature heels hahaha :p
I think I might wear this again very soon..
When something makes you feel confident,
you should definitely embrace it, right?

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Look Of The Day: Granny Chic


As you can see I'm still loving the granny coat, al lot!
This look is a bit more casual, but still very chic.
The blouse I'm wearing must be one of my favorites, 
I just love how it slightly is a victoriana style blouse.
You already know how much I love these romantic items.
However, this outfit is a bit ''grunged up'' because of the coat and the cut out boots.
Yes, now I know why I just didn't like this year's summer.
Autumn fashion is making me so happy that I don't even care about the weather!
Altough, I wouldn't mind if it would rain a bit less next week...

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Outfit: Grungy Romantic


This year's autumn fashion trends are completely my style!
Last week I bought this granny coat and I couldn't resit wearing it.
(There's a ''New In'' post coming up soon)
This is the oufit I wore on our frst ''actual'' school day.
There's no better way to start lectures, than to feel as fabulous as possible right?
A fun fact, I think every one in my class already knows that I'm a fashionista.
Just after one week of school... Could I be more obvious?
 Honesty though, it's not like I wear my glitter dress to school.
I just don't do casual, only when it's still slightly fashionable!
My week was amazing, I absolutely love my study and my class.
Hopefully you also enjoyed your first week of school (or work).
Let's make the most out the year, right!

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Look Of The Day: Like a Gypsy


You have no idea how much I adore this outfit.
I love the skirt, I love the crop top and wearing them together is just so adorbale!
I felt like a princess when I wore this to school!
At first I was a bit uncomfortable with the crop top.

I'm new at the school and I'm already wearing a ''daring'' outfit.
But you know what, I just ignored that little voice in my head.
I love fashion and this is what I do. I wear daring outfits all the time.
It's part of me, it makes me who I am.
If people can't accept that, then it's their loss, not mine.
The voice in my head was complete nonsense, 
because I got some compliments about the outfit.
So, never feel uncomfortable in an outfit, because it's makes you you.

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Look Of The Day: Very Colorful


Alright, I know I wore these trousers a week ago.
I just can't help it, somehow I keep coming up with combinations!
The fact that they're super comfortable makes it even harder not to wear them.
Actually, there are two complete opposites in this outfit.
This is the first time I wore the Boy London t-shirt.
Somehow I just kept it ''save'' in my closet.
Then I realized that I bought it to wear it,
and that's exactly what I did!
No more keeping clothes ''save'' from now on.

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Look Of The Day: Back To School


This week seriously felt like an entire month!
At first I was really scared to go back to school.
Especially because I've got to travel for almost an hour to get there in the first place!
Going to a new school is always a scary thing.
It's never nice to be the 'new one' of the 'freshman'.
After two days I made some friends and luckily, I'm used to the travelling already.
One of my biggest concerns was, and still is, what to wear!
Every day it's such a search to get the right outfit.
Sometimes I wish being a fashionista wouldn't be so hard!
Honestly, I envy everyone who simply doesn't care about their outfit.
I'm trying really hard to care less, but I just simply can't!
I guess it's something you're born with...
Or maybe once you're there you just can't go back...
Whatever it might be, I'll just have to except the facts;
Once a fashionista, always a fashionista.

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

New In: Autumn Pieces


Somehow this year's summer didn't satisfy me at all.
Maybe that's because of what happened to me a few months ago.
But even now, when I've been healthy for quite a while, I still don't seem to like this hot weahter.
The truth is, very unlike me, I have been looking forward for autumn to arrive.
Since we're going back to almost tropical weahter next week,
I'll have to get over my issues and just wear my summer wardrobe! 
The clothing items I bought are all screaming autumn, as you can see.
For now, I don't have much of a choice but to put them away.
To get things clear, I'm not looking forward to rain at all! Just the cooler temperatures.
Let's hope that this year's autumn won't disapoint me...
Wish me luck!

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Look Of The Day: These Trousers Again....


Seriously, these trousers never seem to fail me during summer!
Every time I find a new way to wear them, 
I never thought that such floral trousers could be so easy to combine?
My love for these are stil going V E R Y strong hahaha!
Some times when you buy something, you don't really like it anymore after a year or so.
Other times, you buy something you'll love for years!
These floral babies are definitely a pair I will love for many more years!
Unfortunately it seems like the hot summers days have left us...
Lets just hope that next summer will be just as wonderful!
I honestly can't believe that my 3 months of freedom are already over..
In just two weeks, school life once again starts.
These four years will be very different I guess.
I'm actually a little bit scared to go to college (lmao I'm such a baby!)
Everything will be just fine I hope!
Wish me luck! (I'll need it)

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

New In: Beauty products


Over the past few weeks, or even months I guess, I've bought some beauty products I'd love to share with you!
If I'm right, this is actually the first post ever about beauty products...
Recently I've been paying a lot more attention to make-up.
I think that has something to do with my latest obsession, which is watching YouTube channels.
Honestly, I don't know what I was thinking all those years!!
I used to think that YouTube was boring, mainly because I'd only watch music videos.
Now that I discovered that there is so much more to watch on YouTube I am seriously addicted!

Anyway, lets get to the point.
Some products I got as gifts for my graduation, but I bought most of them myself.

Recipe - Avocado salad


First of all I want to apologize for not posting anything for such a long time!
It's just that during the summer holidays, I don't do that much...
The truth is that I only go out for work, and other boring stuff I don't dress up for..
Without any "Look Of The Days" there isn't much left for me to post about.
I am trying to post something every week though..
Anyway I hope you can forgive me for neglecting the blog.
In reward I've got quite a few posts coming up for you!

As you know, I did a little recipe post recently.
I really enjoyed doing one, hopefully you liked it too!
Well, you're going to have to deal with it,
 because here's another one! (hahaha)

Alright let's get serious.
This is a recipe I tried at a restaurant and I absolutely loved it!
Sometimes I really crave a delicious salad, 
but the thing is that I don't know any recepies!
The restaurant is so amazing, because they put the recepies on their website.
Of course I couldn't resist making the salad myself!

New In: Pity Shopping part 2


Are you ready for the second part of my "Pity Shopping" spree?
Ready or not, here it is anyway hahaha!
You can really tell the difference between this part and the previous one.
In the first part most of the items I bought were from Primark and ASOS.com.
The reason why, is mostly because Primark is close to my house and I don't even have to leave the house to order something at ASOS.com!
But lately I've been feeling a lot better, in fact I have fully recovered from my surgery!
Since I was feeling better, I was able to go shopping in Amsterdam with my mum.
It was so much fun to do something I used to love so much!
You have no idea how excited I am to start living my live again like I used to.
I bet you'll see me in these new items very soon!

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Look Of The Day: Finally Summer!


We have been waiting since the end of March for summer to arrive!
Finally the weather is actually summer worthy!
Seems like waiting really gets rewarded after all.
I decided to wear this dress to dinner with my mum.
This dress stole my heart! It's perfect for every season!
Maybe not every season, it's a bit too cold for during winter I guess...
Anyway I finally got to wear it without thights! 
Summer does has its disadvantages though..
Since last year I've got to deal with hayfever every summer.
Even though it's a complete pain in the a**, I'm going take it for granted!
My love for summer is still going strong!

Lots Of Love,
Savannah

Recipe - Quinoa and vegetables


A while ago I made quinoa for the first time,
 I thought it would be fun to share my experience with you!
For those of you who don't know what quinoa is, have a look here.
This recipe is actually very easy and (surprisingly) super delicious!
