30 April 2013: Historical Day

Today has been a very special and historical day for me. As some of you might know I'm from the Netherlands, one of the last monarchies in the world. For over 100 years we've had queens only, but since today we have a king. Our queen Beatrix passed on the throne to her son, Willem Alexander, and his wife, Maxima. Today was the crowning, which you might have seen somewhere on the news or in a newspaper. These kind of events don't happen very often! Why I'm sharing this? Because I'm very proud of my country and we absolutely love the royal house, like family. That's why we always celebrate Queensday (from now on Kingsday) like crazy...but really ridiculous. Those crazy people in orange, yup, that's us. Having a royal house gives us a feeling that we are unified as a country. I hope we will enjoy having a monarchy for many more years to come.

Outfit Post #14: Birthday outfit

Yesterday I wore one of my new Free People tops for my birthday! On my birthday I just like to relax and be comfy. No tight dresses and high heels for me. A cute Boho tunic, jeans or leggings and some nice sneakers are good for me. Isn't the tunic beautiful!!? I'm so in love with it. The cut is so unique and the fabric is so soft. My favorite thing about this top is the embroidered neckline, so cute and pretty! What you girls think? And if you are having an "I need this tunic right now!"-rage, you can buy it via Free People here!

Wishing everyone a lovely week!

Love,
Lucia

New for Spring: Bohemian Hippie friendship bracelets

Hey girls!

Just wanted to share a sneak peek of some new designs I've lined up to be launched this weekend! These Bohemian Hippie friendship bracelets are made out of organic cotton and silk. This time I didn't hand paint the fabric but used a transfer. Hand painting 100 stipes of about 2,5 mm would take me a ridiculous amount of time. I embroidered the bracelets with Preciosa rocailles. Don't they look cute!?

Sorry for the short and boring post today :), gotta run! I have a photo shoot to arrange today and it's my birthday tomorrow. Still too much preparation to do :). Wishing you girlies an amazing weekend! And as always, any feedback is HIGHLY appreciated!

Love,
Lucia

The Seven Chakra's

The seven chakra's are the energy points in your body. These chakra's are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others. I have been very aware of these energy points since I started yoga some years ago. It helps me to free my mind, re-balance and stimulate my body's own healing process. If our energy centres become blocked or depleted, then our body cannot function properly and this, in turn, can lead to a variety of problems on any level. I thinks it's very important for everyone to understand what each chakra means. It can help to dispel negative feelings, free blocks and re-balance the body. I thought it would be nice to share the meaning of each chakra.

Acknowledge these chakra's each day and you will be healthy, free and balanced!

Love,
Lucia

New In: The Bohemian Dream

Hey girls! How was your weekend?!

A few weeks ago I told you girls about a new project I started. I'm working together with a vintage store in Amsterdam, which provides vintage clothing and I upcycle it into One of a Kind Bohemian pieces. I officially opnened an Etsy Shop to see where this project will take us. I'm very excited about this project! Why would you buy something brand new what everybody already wears, if you can buy eco-friendly One of a Kind upcycled vintage? And for a very nice price! Prices vary from € 15,- to € 50,- euro's. Not bad right, for something One of a Kind AND vintage?!

Want to share some new pieces I've listed last week. If you love upcycled vintage with a Boho touch, you should for sure check out my shop: www.etsy.com/shop/TheBohemianDream

Wishing everyone a lovely week!

Love,
Lucia

Black & White Stripes

Hey girls! Hope everyone had an amazing Easter weekend!

I've been always obsessed with stripes as far as I can remember. Since I was a little girl I've always had something with stripes, especially black and white stripes. In my life time, I guess I've owned over 100 different black and white striped shirts, skirts, sweaters, jackets and shoes. Everybody is obsessing with with stripes lately and I'm starting to get my "I want to by anything with stripes"-rage back again. Last week I've purchased two new black and white striped tops, I'm over joy :P! I'll make an outfit post about it this week!

Just wanted to share some great black & white stripes inspiration today. In the first picture my dear friend Gaby from www.modacapital-blog.com. I really love how she rocks the stripes trend!

Wishing everyone a lovely week!

Big Kiss,
Lucia
