Deze week blijf ik in de internetsfeer hangen, schreef ik afgelopen Maandag nog over Nederlandse Modebloggers, schrijf ik nu over NSMBLE. NSMBLE (spreek uit ENSEMBLE) is een Nederlands online magazine dat dagelijks veel inspratie biedt op het gebied van mode, lifestyle en het leven. Hun doel? ‘Piecing together the daily puzzle called life’.

Tijdens het doorbladeren van hun artikelen kwam ik het DIY (Do It Yourself) topic tegen, en wat mij opviel was dat lang niet alle DIY’s op mode gericht waren! Zo wordt er ook geschreven over hoe je oude meubelen kunt pimpen, zelf een papieren lamp kunt maken en hoe je de lekkerste bananen bites kunt maken.. Kortom DIY’s gericht op alle aspecten van het dagelijkse leven.

Zelf ben ik zeer enthousiast over de Transparante clutch (links onderin) en ben dan ook zeker van plan om een zaterdagmiddag te vullen met deze geweldige DIY. Neem zeker een kijkje op de DIY sectie van NSMBLE en raak geinspireerd door alle originele projecten!

 Are you bikini proof?

by United Blogs of Benetton on: juni 8th, 2010

Top 5 summer bikini covers & shootsI’m a total magazine freak and now that the days are getting warmer and my vacation is near, I love to get inspired by shoots and covers from all kinds of magazines.

Watch my top 5!

1. Kate Moss for Vogue

2. Doutzen Kroes for the Russian Vogue

3. Laura Blokhina in Please Fashion Paper

4. Crystal Renn, Alessandra Ambrosio and Brooklyn Decker for Glamour

5. V Magazine

Are you inspired already? When I look at these photos I love to get beach proof. So look at these 3 steps to get totally beach proof!

1. Forget McDonald’s. Eat healthy! No more junk food, but nice summer food. For example sushi, salads or fruit.

2. You have to find the right swim outfit. One that fits your body perfectly. Are you a little plussize? Find a lovely bading suit, because they’re totally hot again! Maybe you’re a little thin? Get a strapless bikini.

3. Exercise! I’ve found the perfect easy work out. I just go to my room and put on a up tempo song. For example, Cheryl Cole – Fight for This Love or Black Eyed Peas – Boom Boom Pow.

 What about plus size models in magazines?

by United Blogs of Benetton on: maart 30th, 2010

Today’s issue: it seems that women rather not see plus size models in magazines. It could discourage them to buy the product. I went to Amsterdam to ask a few girls about their opinion. I caught four girls in the centre of the city and took their photo too. Here’s what they’ve had to say.

Question: Do you rather not look at plus size models in magazines?

Isabel, 24 years old

“I agree. When I see plus size models in magazines it kind of discourages me to buy the clothes. Very sad, because actually I think it is a good thing that plus size women are shown in magazines. I do think that some models are way too skinny. To me the body of topmodel Doutzen Kroes is perfect!”.

Ester, 24 years old

“I do not agree. It depends on what kind of magazine the models are used for. It wouldn’t bother me, but I do get that there are people that rather don’t see a bigger size in magazines. It also depends on the kind of body you have. If everything is in proportion, plus size can be very beautiful. But only a big belly and skinny legs are not so pretty”.

Glynnis, 20 years old

“I do not agree. It would not discourage me to see plus size models. I think it gives people that aren’t very skinny a sense of confidence. But I actually prefer skinny models, because I’m very skinny too!”.

Anne, 22 years old

“I do not agree. I love a little extra pounds on a woman’s body and don’t like skinny model figures. If the size isn’t too big, I love it!”.

What do you think?
Anais, from Venezuela, says in her profile: “If life gave you curves learn how to drive faster”. Good starting point Anais. Thanks 😉
