Wagner Moura. If 2015 was Benedict Cumberbatch’s year to shine, I predict 2016 will be all about Moura. In two days I have gone through the entire first season of Narcos. I can’t recall the last time I binge watched a show like this. I was supposed to start blogging sooner, but then Narcos happened. And Moura – damn Moura. I may move to Brazil one day just for Wagner Moura. The guy’s portrayal of notorious druglord Pablo Escobar is one of the most captivating performances I’ve seen all year. The last time we saw a character this menacing on TV was with Breaking Bad’s Gustavo Fring. I wouldn’t know who of the two I’d fear the most. Probably Fring. At least with Escobar you’d know he’s playing it dirty. With Fring, all bets are off.

I’m sorry, I’m being all nerdy again comparing two TV villains.

These past couple of weeks have been kind of crazy and part of me still hasn’t fully taken it in yet. I have moved to London. Moving out of our beloved Zuidas home was hard. K practically had to drag me out of the apartment the day we were leaving. I’m no thrill seeker by any means, but I like change. And this was a change that was bound to happen, sooner or later. It just happened sooner than we had anticipated. All of a sudden we had to plan a lot in an extremely short amount of time. We had to figure out what to pack, what to throw away, what to store, what to move, what to sell.

Crazy times.

And K and I had both underestimated all of it. We thought, looking at our minimal, Scandinavian-styled interior, that we wouldn’t need much time packing. Very wise obviously. We were busy moving all week. And boxes kept moving out of the apartment, taking away every memory we had in our home. Until at one point it was all empty. And all that was left, was this void. It was almost as if we were never there.

But in the wise words of one young Joey:

I’m in London, baby!

Initially I had planned this look for my upcoming trip to Paris, being a Karl Lagerfeld look and all. But I wasn’t sure if I wanted to bring my heavy-load camera with me for that trip. Alas, this is a Karl Lagerfeld styled look. I’ve been browsing the Zalando site endlessly ever since they started their premium shop. Of all the items, I am most obsessed with the suede slip-ons – how gorgeous are they?

I’ll definitely be rocking these at London Fashion Week.
