Could I possibly?

Remember when I told you about my new Zara bag - the black + rose gold boxy one? I have been absolutely loving it since I have it. But you know Zara... Always trying to outdo themselves.

I was just going through my weekly build-up of YouTube videos on fashion and beauty - one of them by MeganIsobel raving about another rose-gold detailed Zara bag and Oh... My... God... do I love this dusty grey with rose gold hardware one...

Seriously Zara STOP IT.

Best thing is... it's only 19,99 GBP / 29,99 EUR

My mom is the kind of person that wins almost everything that she participates in. She once won 10.000,- Dutch guilders and we went on vacation and spent it all back in the early nineties. The only thing I've ever won so far is a stuffed penguin - which I thought was amazing when I was 5. 

And guess what?! I was one of the 5 lucky girls to win the lovely Julie Gartha's Aussie blog contest!! And I just received my prize; 5 amazing Aussie products. And since I LOVE Aussie products I'm so so so happy with them!! 

Thanks so much Julie and Aussie!
Have you ever won a blog contest?

Keeping up with the Joneses in Bloggerland

Don't get me wrong. I love reading my daily portion of blogs that I am subscribed to through Bloglovin'. Love to see OOTD's, hauls, new bags, clothes - basically to read up what has been put in all those lovely stores while I am slaving away in the office (okay exaggerated; while I am working like everyone else ;).

However, there are moments like these when I am feeling a bit fed up with Bloggerland.


Currently it is because of the infamous leather "Olivia Palermo" Zara tote bag - but could be anything that's "big" and overexposed in Bloggerland. You know which one I mean. I do not even need to show you the picture of it and I do not want to; you have probably come across it a zillion times if you're a blog follower or a blogger yourself. Google "Zara bag" and you will see an insane amount of bloggers wearing the same bag.

It seems like lately - more than ever - everyone (read: the majority of fashion bloggers) is wearing EXACTLY the same clothes, carrying EXACTLY the same bags, strutting on EXACTLY the same shoes... you get the point. Where is the diversity? For me, there are too many bloggers doing the same thing lately; blogging about buying and showing us exactly the same pieces that other bloggers also already have. The majority of the fashion blogging community seem to be preoccupied with trying to keep up with the Joneses. And that isn't very avant-garde nor Vogue now, is it?

Fortunately there are some bloggers that are still doing their own original thing, these are the bloggers that are actually making an impact on fashion in my eyes and I respect them for having more of a personal style. Just to name a few:

Ivania of Love Aesthetics
Veronica of The Fashion Fruit
Linsey of Pose

I am sorry if I offended anyone with this post - that was not my purpose at all - I still enjoy reading A LOT of blogs, just wanted to point out an issue that I think deserves attention.
What do you think about this?
