Spring 2013 | Styling a maxi dress different ways

Hey CuraGlammers,

I've started with my spring series on YouTube a week ago. I did a Nail Affair and a DIY.
Today I got a fashion video for you guys.
This spring I don't have allot of money to spend on clothes and accessories. So I decided to do what I do best. Styling one piece different ways. Today I styled my new white maxi dress 3 different ways. I tried to incorporate the different spring trends in all the outfits.

Outfit Nr1.
This first look I have decided to dedicate it to stripes. Allot of people don't really like wearing stripes from top to bottom. So a more subtle way to wear it is in a cropped jacket. And since black and white is a trend also. I chose for a black and white color pallet.
Cropped jacket - Buy wise
Bangles - H&M
Studded Flats - Saliña Department store

This weeks CuraGlammer | Bryan Wanga

Hey CuraGlammers,

This week we got a new CuraDancer in town. Most of the Caribbean people may know him already, but not his story and we got a chance to find out more about him.
So if you're a dancer by heart check out this interview and find out if maybe he can inspire you to keep on doing your thing.

Name: Bryan Gabriel Wanga
Nickname: Bboy Private / BeRealz
Age: 21
Hobbies: Singing, Dancing, Drawing & Thinking
Occupation: Dancer, Singer, Song-writer & Entrepreneur

Tell us about yourself.
 I am a very dedicated person as to what I am doing or what I am focused on. Depending on the matter that presents itself I may easily change directions or adapt the way of reading my goal. Talent wise my mom has raised me to do everything as humbly as I can and as real as I can from the heart. That's why my name is BeReal. As an Artist I used to sing in Angelitos which is my mothers singing group. After that I danced with my brother and gave class at Fina Dance Art School. When I got tired of that I started my own dance group called ATA. We gave a few promo shoes and a huge show in Luna Blou called life. We also won the Queens Day breakdance competition a couple of times with the crew Genetically Enhanced and as Phychodelix.

Curaçao International Film Festival Rotterdam | Children of God

Hello CuraGlammers,

In the week of 4 - 7 of April here in Curaçao took place the Curaçao International Film Festival Rotterdam. This event took place last year for the first time and came back this year again for a second time. And I've got to say. Every time it gets better and better.
This year it took place again at the Cinemas Curaçao and Renaissance.

Picture from CIFFR Website.
Curaçao International Film Festival Rotterdam is one of the many events that let local people showcase their talent in different ways. This year they did a B&W picture contest and also just as last year everyone could have made a short movie of 5 minutes to share with the public.
This contest called, Short movies, Big stories , was a great hit with people from all over sending videos and showcasing their talent. Of course there were prices for the two best short films.

First place winner of the Short movies, Big stories

At the festival there was also allot of films from all over the world that hasn't been published yet or were used only in festivals that were showcased. Everyone had the chance to buy a ticket to watch the movies that they wanted to see and meet some of the directors of the movies.

So they had somewhat of 6 scents. At first I bought one, the Vanilla Coconut.
Later I went with my mother and bought another one, Peach Bellini, since I couldn't resist.

Name : Margin Nahr 
Nickname : Martje, MasterM
Age : 20
Occupation : Programmer
Hobbies : Play video games and have fun

Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a 20 year old religious boy that likes to have fun, I can't tell much about myself because there is not much.
I own a company named Margin Entertainment and I live in a house with a beautiful mother and a sister, I have many goals and ambitions and is working to reach them everyday.

Describe your personal style.
I am a classy guy type but I still like the rudeness in it.
For example I like wearing a long sleeve shirt and letting the top buttons unbuttoned.

We know you have a math program,'Treinen di Matematiko pa skol basiko', for primary schools. Where did you get the idea to make this program?
I got this idea from a friend, he told me that it would be a good idea to start of with kids and so I started thinking about it and 2 years later it has became a reality

Which schools have already helped you with this program?
Many schools have been helped with this program, for example the ERASMUS school and many individual clients.

What was the reaction of the School board and primary schools when you presented them this program?
The reaction I received where very positive and I cant say much but it was accepted with 2 open hands.
At first I did not know I was going to receive such a good acceptance but my hard work has finally paid off and the acceptance was worth it.

How was the reaction from your family when they found out about this program? Did they help you in any way?
Yes, my family helped me allot. My mother helped me ALLOT, they were with me since the beginning to the end. They helped me sell allot of copies and also with allot of events (either by being there or giving me their advice)

What kind of feedback do you get from your buyers?
Most of the time I get a good feedback and sometimes I get some constructive criticism to improve the math software.
And every opinion I get I try to improve my software to the maximum so the next version of this software will be very great.
They was proud and liked the direction I was taking.

Will you be making more programs like this in the near future?
Yes I will be making more software's including video games.
because since I can remember video games was my passion and I cant wait to make my first commercial video game, even I myself wait for that moment.

Where can we get more information about you?
You can get more information about me at Facebook by searching for "Margin Nahr".
If you would want advice or anything related just send me a personal message because i am a very open person.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself as a proud CEO and company owner and having more successful titles.

Hey CuraGlammers,

We all know that the new series Carrie Diaries has started in January 2013. Most girls that loved Sex and the City went crazy for the series and so did I.

One of the most popular DIY project that this show has started was the Nail polish purse.
Everyone has been doing this DIY like crazy on blogs and YouTube. I decided to change it a little.
I went for the nail design.

Hey CuraGlammers,

I said that this year I wouldn't shop anymore, because I wanted to save money to go to on vacation this year. Well that worked for maybe 2 weeks only, because today I already bought this awesome cardigan I saw on Forever21.

I always do some browsing online and I saw allot of things I wanted, but I was particularly looking for an leather item or something leopard printed. I came along this BEAUTIFUL cardigan and immediately ordered it.

This cardigan has the leopard print and the leather accents to it so it is a score! Hope it does arrive well. As soon as it arrives I will be pairing some outfits with this cardigan. Maybe you guys can get it too. Just click here.

Curaçao Carnival Diary | Tumba Hubenil 2013

Hey CuraGlammers,

As you guys can read in the title this is going to be a post about Curaçao Carnival. This year a group came up with a new idea to start a Diary of the Curaçao Carnival. This is to help everyone to keep up with the Carnival season. To check them out click here.

The Carnival season has started on January 5,2013 with a great Jump-up.
Even though we didn't blog about this Jump-up we are sure that we will be covering most of the Carnival main events that happen here in Curaçao. So this time we are covering the Tumba Hubenil 2013.
I saw the event on TV, so I will be reviewing the organisation and the TV production itself, Tele Curaçao.

Saturday January 12,2013 at International School took place the Festival Tumba Hubenil 2013. Where 15 teens participated to sing their Tumba to Curaçao. Every participant made their show as unique as they could with their own little twist on it.
