Recent purchases

As promised here is the update about my recent purchases.

Comic related:

How awesome is this? Wonder Woman barbie!! They sell for a ridiculous amount of money on eBay  I got this one from a Dutch site called Marktplaats, which is translated as marketplace. I got a good deal on it, because the box is damaged. I paid €12,50 for it.

Seperate issues and two collected volumes. The two books I got a comic book store in Haarlem called Silvester strips. They mostly sell Dutch comics but they have an American section as well back in the store. The Trinity comics I got from eBay, and the mixed lot in the third picture I got from a book market in Purmerend.

Batman dress/top! I am actually too tall to wear it as a dress, but I wore it the other day with a pair of leggings and it was fine. It is the lazy oaf knock off, but a fraction of the price of a real one. Yet again, from eBay.


Last week I went to see my parents, and they had planned a nice day trip to Germany! We went to Kleve to do some shopping and browsing. I had my mind set on two things: the Art Deco Dita von Teese collection and her perfume. The perfume is not yet released here in Holland, and I was dying to find out how it smells. Douglas was all sold out, but they did have the Art Deco collection. I picked up two things, a powder compact and a lipstick.

I am very content about the formula of this brand. The lipstick is long lasting, and the powder gives a nice matte finish to the skin. I first applied lip pencil as a base before I filled in my lips with the lipstick. It helps to make your lipstick stay put and makes sure it doesn't smudge outside your lip line. Then I went to another perfume store and they still had two bottles of Dita perfume left!
It isn't like any other celebrity perfume, it smells like a high end brand. Not your average girlie flower scent. I love it, it is really for grown ups. Plus the bottle looks very elegant as well.

That's it for now, it is almost diner time so I have to get pots and pans out!
Have a nice evening!


Something went wrong with my pictures :(
I am working on it as we speak.

What is going on?

Hello everyone, I am sorry I haven't updated my blog for ages.
A lot of things have happened, and unfortunately not all of those things are good.
I don't want to focus on all the bad stuff but one thing that is still bothering me is my knee. I've had the operation in March, had to go to the physiotherapist and all of the sudden I was sent home with the message that they couldn't help me anymore. I had to 'recover' on my own strength. I was relieved but also a bit suspicious about it. After a while my knee started to hurt really bad, like every day. It was the same sort of pain I had when I just had the operation. I made a call to the hospital to get a check-up. The surgeon told me that I am very unstable   and I have to go and see a new physiotherapist. He also told me that things don't improve I have to get a second operation. So here I am still hanging in there with no improvement since March. Now I have to go to the new therapist 2 times per week and the treatment is quite intense. But it is all for a good cause!

A nice thing that has happened is that my grandma and grandpa had their 60th wedding anniversary! We had a nice day planned for them, with cake and dinner at a fancy restaurant. Even the mayor came to pay a visit, she gave them flowers and a pen drawing of a scene from their town. I am still waiting for pictures, but I have one for you right now.

My outfit of that day:
Top and skirt are from Pinup Couture and I bought those via topvintage
Excuse the clutter in the picture.

Other nice things that have happened are actually shopping related, haha! I haven't told you this yet but I am a comic collector. Especially Wonder Woman and Batman related stuff. I think that I am going to do a separate post about my recent purchases, as some sort of 'collective haul'. 

That's it for the update for now. I will be posting more often since I do want to review stuff and passing on my findings to others.

Night night everyone!
