Dear followers, friends, brands, pr-agencies, people I was supposed to meet or drink coffee with ages ago, I would like to explain myself by sharing a personal update on my health. Over the past 7 months, I’ve already informed a lot of people, but I understand it can be confusing when you see photos of a – what seems to be – happy girl on Instagram. You’re right, I don’t look sick. But please remember to.. never judge a book by its cover, or in this case by its Instagram… Read More

I’m staring at this blank paper knowing exactly what I need to write. Yet the words can’t come out. Why? I want this personal post to be entertaining, funny, I want it to show that I’m a pretty good writer and I want it to be a good representation of who I am as a person. And that’s exactly my problem. My need to impress others but even more so myself keeps me from acknowledging what’s truly going on: I am burned-out. And that’s really all I need to write… Read More

Living in another country goes hand in hand with meeting new people. Sometimes inspiring people, like Florine, the owner of Sunny Cords. She moved from The Netherlands (hello fellow Dutchie!) to Sydney for work. She was desperately looking for sunglasses cords, which in The Netherlands, is very common. Instead of looking any further, she decided to make her own. Today her company Sunny Cords is so successful, that she had to cut her working hours in half. So next to her part-time job, she’s a parttime girlboss! Or probably full-time,… Read More
A few weeks ago I went to The Netherlands. I always enjoy trips home, but not only because I get see my friends and family. Also because I loooove shopping in The Netherlands. Why? The seasons are opposite in Australia. We are actually behind fashion-wise, which for a fashion freak quite sucks! When it’s Winter and the Dutchies can buy the newest Autumn/Winter collections, like gorgeous new winterjackets and overknee boots (it’s way too hot in Sydney for those beautiful things!), us in Australia are still in Summer and are stuck with… Read More
Yup, that’s me. You thought I was talking about someone else huh? No, I’ve been working and living on a farm in the Australian country for 4,5 months. Pause for reaction… Rick and I arrived in Sydney on a one-year Working Holiday visa. A so-called 417-visa. To extend our stay as foreigners, Dutch people in particular, we could try to get sponsored by an employer or do 88 days of farm work. We never really focused on getting sponsored, so we choose to do 88 days of farm work. Well, to… Read More
A new pair of rocking jeans and a coffee to go, while exploring Melbourne. My life as a coffee addict and jeans addict, couldn’t be better! What I’m wearing: COUNTRY ROAD jeans COUNTRY ROAD top WAREHOUSE jacket WANTED heels CHANEL belt
Marks & Spencer is currently working with a theme called ‘Life. Spend it well.’. Because I’ve collaborated with this great brand before, they asked me with I think is the best way to spend life well, or better yet, getting the most out of life. When I think of getting the most out of life, I think of my favorite Instagram accounts. A life well spent is a life traveling to the most beautiful places, eating lots of yummy bad food yet still looking like Gigi Hadid, wearing your vintage… Read More
Old school kicks are making a comeback and as a nineties girl, I love it! Yes, I was born in 1986 but I spend most of the childhood years I can actually remember in the nineties. I consider myself a nineties girl. Anyway, we saw the Adidas Stan Smith’s and Superstar’s making a comeback a few years ago, then Puma came back in style (also thanks to Rihanna), Vans made a huuuge come back last year and now those old school Coverse sneakers. Are they ever out of style anyway?! I had… Read More
It’s been a long, long search, but I finally found the perfect stylish backpack! This backpack is part of Daphny Raes her newest collection which you can now buy on Kickstarter or their webshop with discounts up to 40%. Score! I love supporting upcoming brands and after receiving this backpack, I’m even more happy I did! It’s so gorgeous, minimal and functional! Perfect for traveling or a day in town with my laptop and a pair of flats 😉 What I’m wearing: DAPHNY RAES bag NUDE LUCY top ASOS jeans… Read More
When I shop, I know what I want and I want to have found it within 20 minutes max. Carrie Bradshaw’s quote ‘Shopping is my cardio’ isn’t meant for me, as 20 minutes won’t burn those chocolate bar calories. This is the reason I like to shop at ‘search engine webshops’. You know, those shops where you simply type in what you’re looking for and hundreds of matching results show up. I work with Kleding.nl and that’s how I get it done in 20 minutes! In this case I was… Read More
When I selected this outfit at Glue Store I simply put something together I thought would look good. Yet when I selected the outfit photos we shot the other day, I realized this look makes me travel through time! Why? We’ve got a rock band t-shirt like my dad used to wear in the 80ties. I can’t really tell because I only lived in the 80’s for 4 years. Can’t recall memories from 0-4 years old…, but I’ve seen the photos! We’ve got a bomber jacket like my brother used… Read More
What better way to spice up a basic look than with a pair of orange (!) heels?! I love these Aldo babies <3 What I’m wearing: TOPSHOP shirt (stolen from the boyfriend) NOBODY DENIM jeans ALDO heels (via sarenza) CHANEL rock-in-home bag BY LIA jewelry
It’s time to transition to winter with Marks & Spencer knitwear! As exciting as I am about being able to wear knitwear, I must admit that I’m sad to say goodbye to summer. The summer climate is one of the things I love most about Sydney. Since we arrived in Sydney last September, we had 4 months of bright sun and blue skies. Now that’s what makes me happy! Though I love summer, I can definitely handle winter. I’m a Dutch girl, I have no choice but to braise the… Read More

I walked passed Doughnut Time several times contemplating whether to get a box of goodness or not. And then I got a message from Sweaty Betty PR, if I would like to get some doughnuts from Dougnut Time. Uh yes! As if they’ve been reading my mind from the moment I arrived in Sydney. Oh, they were so good… What I’m wearing: FRONT ROW SHOP top ASOS jeans BRANDFIELD jewelry

Today’s ‘Pic of the Day’: Having coffee at our favorite coffee spot in Newtown, Cuckoo Calley. The one that’s located in front of the train station and so it has become tradition already to get a coffee here first, before getting on the train! Love any coffee-related tradition 😉 What I’m wearing UNIQUE21 bodysuit (online soon!) MISSGUIDED jeans TONY BIANCO shoes (similar) WOODZEE white shades
Can you believe it?! If your name is Lian (or if you’re just like me), you’d dress this stand-out piece down a bit. So I combined it with some Levi’s shorts and pointy slip-on sandals. Ready for a sunny day in Sydney! What I’m wearing THE FABLE silk shirt LEVI’S vintage shorts (similar) ALDO pointy sandals (via sarenza) WOODZEE pink shades CHANEL flap bag (similar)
I love combining affordable items with high-end items. Well, actually I mostly wear items from affordable brands, especially now that I’m living in expensive Sydney. One of my ultimate favorite affordable brands is Missguided. They know how to translate the current trends into stylish, yet affordable pieces. Luckily for me Missguided as an Australian webshop, so I went a little crazy the other day. You can check out the unboxing and try-on below and of course, one of the outfits I created. Love this look! What I’m wearing: MISSGUIDED top MISSGUIDED jeans… Read More
I am a sucker for watches. I hardly wear any jewelry, but I always wear a watch. No bracelets, but a watch. Therefore I always choose plain watches that match any outfit. I’ve got an all black one, an all grey one, a white one with a hint of gold, even an all navy one! Yet I can never have enough and incase you’re just like me, this is you lucky day! I selected a range of beautiful, plain, timeless watches for you (and me, ssst!). MARC BY MARC JACOBS… Read More
Did you watch my Sydney Fashion Vlog and have you been wondering all weekend what I bought? As if that would keep you busy all weekend, haha! No, I hope you spend time with your friends or family, did some relaxing. Or some partying! In which case you’ll probably have a terrible day at the office.. Good luck! Anyway, I went to Fashion Weekend Sydney earlier this month and I bought an amazing silk blouse from Nice Martin, an Australian brand. I wanted a silk blouse for a long time,… Read More
One thing not so cool about traveling; your skin doesn’t know how to handle the sun, salty sea water, chemical swimming pool water, dry air, humid air… My forehead has always been my problem area, and she and I haven’t been good friends lately. Follow my vlogs? If you pause it every now and then, you can do a fun game of pimple counting. They’re right between my brows and my hairline. Good luck! It was better when I had my Bali tan, but now that that pretty brown glow… Read More

Not sure what to do this Saturday? How about checking out my latest vlog! No, I’m not trying to turn this blog post into a commercial 😉 I’m just really happy that I’m doing cool fashion-related stuff here in Sydney and that we made a cool fashion-related vlog out of it! I did some shopping in Paddington and visited Fashion Weekend Sydney. My inner fashionchick loved this week! Check out the vlog below and have a great weekend!

The first day in Sydney I found out, by accident, there was a blogger closet sale in Surry Hills. Bloggers like The Chronicles of her and the ladies from Who What Wear were selling their trendy stuff. What a great accident! I went and got this silk top and seventies-style sunnies. Trends for a bargain! It was so nice to be a girl shopping at a blogger closet sale, instead of a blogger selling at a blogger closet sale 🙂 You can see some footage in the blog below, but… Read More
Todays Pic of the Day: A random ‘I’m chilling at the pool’ post. This shot was taken at our hotel in Cambodia. If you’re planning on going to Siem Reap, this is the place to stay!

Just a random post with some happy beach pics. Taken during sunset in Canggu, Bali. I love to watch the ocean move, I love feeling the wind even though it fucks up my hair, I love being barefoot, I love feeling the sand between my toes – Not when my feet are wet though, hate it! -, I love the orange sky at sunset… Conclusion: I should live in a beach house. What I’m wearing (not much..) COSTES off shoulder top PRISONERS OF ST. PETERSBURG sunnies H&M shorts

Remember that post about me being re-united with my leather jacket? And that I love it so much, it might win from the ultimate fashion item in the world a.k.a. my Chanel bag? With everyone responding so understanding, I figured I might do a ‘Leather Jacket’ post. Cause to me a leather jacket is the number one thing you need to have in your closet. So todays ‘Pick of the day’ are a few picks: The best black leather jackets you can get at the moment. I prefer real leather,… Read More
Normally I can’t really appreciate music artists going into a complete different directions because a certain genre is popular at the moment. Like Jennifer Lopez. She went from making poppy R&B/Latin songs to making club music and booty-shake songs. Jenny, thank you for getting me down on the dancefloor, but I’m a bit disappointed. You were one of my favorite urban-millennium-music-icons, I sang Spanish because of you! Then there’s Usher, who went from the ultimate R&B artist to making house music. His 2012 album is called ‘Looking 4 Myself’ and it’s… Read More

Before we go into the Instagram plan app goodness: this is not a sponsored post. This is something I’m so excited about, I just had to share it. Let’s go! I found the solution to all you Instagram problems! Well I didn’t really, Rick did when he got tired of me cussing at my phone. If you’re an Instagrammer, you’ll probably know what happened. That time a year I hate my Insta-feed It was one of those days I have a few times a year, when I totally hate my… Read More
