Alexa Chung Style


Alexa Chung has inspired many girls around the world, that's the reason why I am still talking about her after a long time. In fact, I think she has such an easygoing style that most girls can relate with. Fashion is sometimes regarded as a stupid thing and only for futile girls. Well, my personal vision is completely different, that's not about the amount of money you can afford in one piece, this is about how you express yourself. Nothing to do with being able to afford the latest trends but how you want to present yourself to the world.

The way how Alexa does that it's really inspiring. She makes things so easy and no fussy at all. While most people are trying too hard, she just shows us that Fashion is all about your personal style and beliefs.

Challenge #18 sponsored by Judi Kins



Goodmorning all, the last challenge we had 40 participants, thank you all for playing with us ;o)
We hope you all will join us again these next two weeks ... it is so great to see all of your cards.
You all are an inspiration to us as a DT-team, to continue this great challenge blog.

These two week's sponsor is Judi Kins

Marion met Judi en Rob from Judi Kins personally on the Art Specially event. They had a good talk and Marion invited them as sponsors to our blog. They were happy to be our sponsor. At the end of the Event Marion got a bag with some of Judi's stamps and told Marion that she could use the stamps for the challenge blog and give them away to the winner, but not all at the same challenge ;o) The stamps are pretty unique because Judi used them herself on the Art Event. So they came with a little paint on them and her fingerprints. Hope you all don't mind and enjoy the kind gesture they gave us! For this challenge you can win the second stamp from that bag. Which one? That remains a surprise...


And now for some little inspiration, here are the cards the Design Team made for you as samples ;o) You can click on the names and you go straight to their personal blogs to see the details about their cards ;o) They love to recieve your comments ...This week's sketch is made by Janneke and you can find that sketch at the end of this post. Please do not post it on your blog but link to our blogpost. Thank you ;o)

Lana Del Rey: The new indie sensation




These days I have been looking for new songs and  new artists on YouTube and I accidentally listened to "Born to Die". At first, I had mixed feelings...Did I like it or not? I could not answer. Her voice can be disturbing and her lyrics really odd. But then, the next day I caught myself listening to it again, so I guess I really liked it.

Talking about Lana Del Rey (25 years old), she  is an American singer-songwriter. But this is only her stage name, she is actually called Elizabeth Grant, she is daughter of the millionaire Rob Grant. As a matter of curiosity her stage name was inspired by the combination of Lana Turner (the actress) and the Ford Del Rey ( yes..the car...)

Lana's  first album will be named Born to Die and it's set to be released on January 27, 2012. The music video received many  favourable reviews from critics, but of course, there are always people who criticizes her vintage style or how she labels her music as indie..Anyway, this is another story.

Well, let's listen to her and then you tell me what you think or feel....

Official website: http://lanadelrey.com/





Born To Die

Lana Del Rey

My, oh me, my
Feet don't fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Oh, my heart it breaks every step that I take
But I'm hoping that the gates,
They'll tell me that you're mine
Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or desire?
I feel so alone on the fridays nights
You make me feel like home,
If I tell you you're mine
As like I told you, honey


Don't make me sad, don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets though
I don't know why
Keep making me laugh,
Lets go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime


Take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane, so
Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die


Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Trying to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find
All the answers honey


Don't make me sad, don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don't know why
Keep making me laugh,
Lets go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime


Come on take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane,so
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die


Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane


Don't make me sad, don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don't know why
Keep making me laugh,
Lets go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime


Come on take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane


Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die
