Jen Davis is a photographer who lives in Brooklyn, who I very much admirer. She has got some balls to make self-portrait’s dealing with issues regarding beauty, identity, and body image.

She began taking self-portraits of her overweight in 2002 and it took her 11 years to finish her project and eventually inspired her to loose weight. At first, she started her project to explore her own insecurities, face them and might overcome them. After 11 years, she realized that neither her insecurities or her weight was changed and she decided to do a lap-band surgery and lost a lot of weight.

I think that (before her weight-loss) she was a beautiful women and the pictures are absolutely stunning. I might even think the pictures are even more beautiful before she lost her weight. What I really like about her images is that give a sort of stillness what makes you really feel the loneliness what she seems to be suffering from.

For more pictures, take a look on her website:

I just found my new favorite jewelry designers! And I think you do too now.

Two young designers  from Amsterdam decided to put their creative heads together and started their own collection full of geometric forms (love it).  And the best part is, it is very affordable!

You can find their collection at GEKAAPT and THINGS I LIKE THINGS I LOVE in Amsterdam and Arnhem.

Take a look at their website




Poster //01 The world spins madly on

The world spins madly onHi there!

It’s been while. I can’t really say that I have been busy because the only thing I was busy with was myself (yes really). I think everyone has those times where suddenly you are forced to take a step back en breath in very hard and make sure you breath everything out just as hard. Or maybe even harder.

Know those? Well, I just got a great couple of months with it! But I have to say, I really think I came out stronger and with a lot of inspiration as well! I just started to design my own posters and postcards. Here’s is a quick preview and of course I’ll keep you posted!

Love, Pien

Citytrip Krakow

By 0 , , , , Permalink

Just because everybody seems to be over the moon about Krakow, me and my boyfriend decided we would take a look our selfs. So we just spent a couple of days there. I have to say, it is a very cozy city! Not in the ‘best-city-trip-2015-destination’ kind of way but absolutely in a ‘let’s-drink-and-eat-way-to-much’ kind of way! Krakow is not expensive and has a great type of kitchen and a lot of bars and restaurants. The old city center is very Romantic with a nice park around it but a bit touristy. The old jewish district Kazimierz, is still very authentic and there is a lot going on around Plac Nowy.


Alchemia – Bar, club and restaurant

Nowa Prowincja – Hot chocolate and wine bar

Nowa Prowincja is in the old city center and every woman should go there (especially when your having your period, just saying). It’s small and cozy and there are two old-time favorites that you can order at any time of the day. Chocolate and wine. Do I need to say more? The hot chocolate I can’t stop talking about, is literally hot melted chocolate. Very impressive.
