Getting used to sneakers


Day by day I get a little more casual and comfortable with my style. I didn't even own sneakers a couple of years ago. My shoe collection mostly contained high heels in every color of the rainbow. I walked miles and miles on my heels and of course my feet hurt afterwards but I didn't care. The reason why I never wore sneakers was because of my height but also because it didn't made me feel feminine. It still doesn't, but I've come to embrace my height and the comfort is just so unreal compared to stiletto heels. It just can't be missed now. And my style has changed drastically in these couple of years. I'm still very feminine, but once in a while the tree climbing tomboy needs to pop up along with the sneakers.

Love, Minh

Introducing Fiveftwo!

Dear readers,

I have an exciting announcement to make. From now on Freshminhtea will go under the name Fiveftwo ( I will run this blog together with my beloved Thuhien Nguyen. So be prepared for some double trouble! We will create a blog filled with fashion, beauty, travel, art, food related posts. We hope you're going to enjoy this blog as much as we will.

First we would like to start with a short introduction about ourselves.

My name is Minh Nguyen, it's pronounced as ... never mind it's too hard to pronounce unless you're Vietnamese :P. Please call me Minh it's much easier. When I was 4 years old my parents escaped to The Netherlands for a better life. We've settled down in a small town called Leeuwarden. Now 25 years later I own a cute little nail salon in the centre of Leeuwarden. You should come and visit when you're in the neighborhood. Besides my work I love fashion, illustrating, reading, singing, cooking and acting silly from time to time. You can't take life too seriously right?

And I am Thuhien Nguyen. My first name is pronounced like two-heen. I am a little girl (5'2"tall) with big dreams. I was born in a small village in The Netherlands on December 29th 1992. Currently I am residing in the amazing city Amsterdam. Last summer I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication. I have a great passion for fashion and I would love to get involved in this industry. That is the reason why I decided to be a part of this blog. I'm looking forward to write articles about fashion and many other things to keep you entertained. 

Enjoy and be inspired!

Thea Element in Lisbon


I just came back from a fun weekend getaway with my brother/photographer Tyler. These photos are taken on our balcony in Lisbon. The view is amazing don't you think? It was really nice weather so I wore my cute dress from Thea Element. It has an inner shorts attached so you don't have to worry about anything :P. What an invention! On warm summer days I like to wear my hair up and this hairdo compliments the dress really well I must say. Anyway, I will tell you guys more about Lisbon soon. Have a great day everyone!

A very simple and casual outfit for today. I tied a knot in the tank top to make it a bit more special. We all have our easy and comfortable days but that doesn't mean we can't still look nice. This is how I look going grocery shopping on a sunny day. And I don't do that very often :P.
