Yelena & Eloise zijn de 2 prachtige mini-me's van Tiany & Didier. Fashionista's in spé die leven in een wereld vol snoep, ijs, K3 en tonnen aan pink stuff. Spaans, Engels & Nederlands vloeien perfectly door elkaar ten huize van Miss Y. & Miss E. Eloise zit in haar rokjes periode en Yelena kiest steevast een jurkje uit haar prinsessenkast.
Deze lovely mini-me's zijn volledig gepassioneerd door Justin Bieber & oefenen élke dag de lyrics van 'Baby'. Om hun Engels nog bij te spijkeren, delen ze al hun vakantieavonturen als Belmodo.tv guest editors!
A belated post from our side, we’ve been lazy goofin’ around and we’re actually not totally thrilled about this so-called last post as we really have been enjoying the striking a pose and sharing of our cute little intimates.
So The Eloise and I have decided to start a revolution… “blogs to the kids” meaning you should just cast your vote and make the folks at Belmodo.tv realize we should be part of their board of directors or so.
So we promised you some outstanding kiddie-proof hotspots to hang around and here they are in no particular order of preference.
We love Zut, this great little toyshop in Knokke because they sell the greatest dolls and have this little wooden train you can play around with. Then there’s this great place called Lady Ann where you can eat ridiculously delicious pancakes. We go totally ballistic when mom and dad take us to this resto called Rubens or The Burgerij in Antwerp as they both serve all these yummy fries and give you lollipops or Ben & Jerry’s. We pretty much enjoy the zoo in Antwerp but hate it when we’re forced into the Penguin-dome… it smells like stinky fish and makes us wanna hurl. Thanks god Happy Feet does not come with that same smell!
We have been machinating a way to force our parents to finally take us to the major hotspot of hotspots, we’ve managed to take some compromising pics and now that we’ve gone all intergalactic and so we’re pretty much sure we’ll soon be making it to Disneyland Paris. You find that evil? Well, than you should see the bribing action we have to go through each and every day: eat this or you will not be having any dessert for the rest of the week, arrange your toys or you’ll go to bed pronto without watching Kzoom, don’t contest me or you’ll be spending the rest of the afternoon in the cellar, bla bla bla!
So please don’t have merci with them and hence the big session of laughter you’ll have once you get to see those pics… unless they take to us to Minnie Mouse of course!
I also remember we would be talking boys, but The Eloise somehow seems to have such a long list, that they would never fit in this one post! So I’ve decided to make a selection of the cool little guys she fancies, with on the very top the very handsome Mister L. He plays hard to get, but something tells me he likes my little monster sis. Then there’s also the very talented Mister I. and every time the Eloise sees him, she starts showing off and indulges into all these ‘look-at-me-mating-dances’.
I really enjoy the company of Mister D., who is in fact like 6 years older or so, guess I simply fall for mature. Mister V. also makes my heart go boom boom, and although we don’t seem to be on speaking terms in the pic above, we get along pretty well.
Ok, I’m in a good mood and as The Yelena doesn’t seem to be eager to share her modeling secret with you, I thought it would be a great idea to get it all out there… So a couple of months ago my mommy dear rushes in ravin’ like a hysteric mad woman, because The Yelena was about to become a top model. She prepared daddy’s favorite food and gave him a couple of glasses of wine and then brought out the Anne Kurris shoot news.
It must have been one amazing meal as daddy dear consented to this and entire experience. Did The Yelena enjoy it? Guess she did, but I’m pretty much sure mommy dear enjoyed it even more. So thanks the Care Bears Heavens we don’t live in the States. She would probably dress me up like a cupcake, fluff my hair Fabiola style, teach me how to shake my little tush on the catwalk with a constant grin on my face and have me going to all these ridiculous pageants…
Yelena for Anne Kurris
Pictures by Ronald Stoops
The Yelena would probably be a multi Toddlers and Tiara’s champion or so… our lives would be designer make-up hell without the cute little Anne Kurris outfits which are now by the way available in our shopping hotspot in Gent… what’s it called again? I think something with Janssen & Kaat… Oh by the way, this lovely shop will introduce their online store called Mister Jones & Miss Katie. Yeah, we are completely going crazy already!
Ok Folks, we’re not gonna cry nor are we gonna say goodbye as we are really planning to intrude this fashion cyber space every once in a while. Peace out, chill lax and goodie… next week we’ll be hitting school again, which is good because we miss our Meester Dieter & Juffrouw Fonda (The Eloise means Gonda).
Big hug and hope you enjoyed our mini tales…
Fashion Forward with Chanel
It has been 4 blog posts, 876 pictures (we seem to have troubles with focusing) and 154 outfits ever since we started here at Belmodo.tv. La mama seems to be nervous as she might get fired because of us. We seem to be witty and obviously much more fashion forward than she is. Which is quite normal considering the fact we were born hurling ‘Chanel’.
I mean, the day preceding the birth of The Yelena, mommy dear bought her very first 2.55 without even knowing if she had a boy or a girl in her tummy. The Yelena remembers mama promising herself that if it would be a baby girl, that very first Chanel would go out to her… so then The Yelena started giving mom contractions of happiness and the rest is just history…
When I was born she figured she needed another double the C bag, which was wisely baptized “Eloise”… I know, I’m wise and old enough to realize we’re just a good excuse for mommy dear going totally ballistic on the bag expenses, but whatever! We can actually already claim the ownership of a designer bag and I swear to Plop that if mommy dear keeps nagging about me having to eat this or that, she just won’t be allowed to use MY Chanel anymore and really, I won’t do this ‘uno, dos y tres’ thing she always does.
This is the Yelena admitting all of the above and for once surprised that The Eloise hasn’t exaggerated or told you things that will cause a black cross to appear on her forehead. Having acknowledged what The Eloise has said, it’s time to take off, time to claim what’s mine!
Ok, just kidding I’m much too eager to tell you about my last week’s findings. One of them involves my arm fiesta’s, which according to my mama more elaborate than the arm parties held by a certain Man Repeller. Not sure if that’s a good thing though, as how can you repel and still get the prince?
So I bumped into this press dossier of my mom containing pictures of this cute little girl and bracelets by the name of Pearl Ellis & I’m in love… ever since I’ve been wanting to break my piggy bank again, I however haven’t gotten hold yet of all that online ordering thing, so I urgently need some help…
This is The Eloise putting an end to all this fashion talk, as it’s time to finally show you some real goodies. So tadaaaa, enter our real heaven of lust and joy: the kingdom of plastique fantastique and of wood & absolute fluffiness.
First there’s this ‘world puzzle’, which I actually enjoy more when it’s totally upside down. I guess our mama & papa think it’s important to know about the world, but it’s mainly used by mom to show us where on earth she’ll be hanging around, every time she is obliged to leave us for her job in fashion.
I am pretty fond of naked Barbie’s, my pianos and this little guitar, which is kind of deteriorated now as we once pretended to be Nirvana band members and I smashed my guitar to the ground. The Yelena is into getting wiser and totally into this pretty colored counting rack and this huge puzzle with all these cute little animals and the letters of the alphabet. I couldn’t care less… She also loves her ‘Lego Friends’ stuff, but I’m more into Duplo and have built the most exciting houses ever, but am now on an architectural break.
Ok so The Eloise is depicting me as the biggest Nerd on the face of this planet, but truth is I just want to be prepared and well I’m eager to be able to read all these books hanging around ‘la casa’. She forget to mention that I really enjoy drawing and that I’m totally smitten with my tutu in which I become a prima ballerina…
Next time you see us popping up here, we’ll be talking boys and certainly the ones that make our heart skip a beat and we’ll be informing you on the places we love to visit. Be prepared as that involves a lot of pancakes so get ‘your sweet on’ and stay tuned… Peace out, chillax and blogs to the kids.
And before totally splitting… some more of us wearing the lovely frocks from Meneer Janssen & Juffrouw Kaat… I however still have to teach The Eloise all about posing…
This is the Eloise speaking… I’m trapped in this little skirt-obsessed body and have this urge to change clothes at least 3 times a day… I also have this tendency to slip into this Anne Kurris striped dress after mommy dear has prepared my bootie for bed. I’m not really sure why that somehow seems to drive her mad, I mean who’s the fashionista here?
From the minute I entered this world she has been juggling around with clothes and tempting us with all these shiny shoes, that someday soon we will hopefully be able to wear… I’ve seen her wear more outfits in a day than the K3 ladies all together during an average show, so what’s up with her? Why can she have a gazillion outfits a day and do I have to stick to this single one?
The Yelena is currently suffering from a writer’s block, so I have been forced to take over and wish to further discuss our mini obsession with clothes… we’re addicted, that’s all there is to it. You drop us in a shop and we’ll go mad!
Ok, if we’re talking clothes than I’m back to writing, so this is the Yelena taking over… I love clothes and shoes and My Little Pony hairpins and raspberry hairbands. I like pink and purple, but I am glad to settle for the hues my mom wishes to buy for us. You put me in a shop and I’ll be glad to go through the necessary fittings… something Eloise really despises, she just grabs all things skirty and furry and sits on it until mommy dear forces her to try it on.
As you can see, shopping with us tends to be total chaos, so after the last debacle of the spring/summer 2012 collection shopping, my mom decided she would no longer take us along with her and she now just shops till she drops all these gorgeous little dresses and we just get to try everything at home… Not really fair, but guess it’s that or pure bare nakedness.
So last week, she once more visited her favorite kiddy shop in Gent: Meneer Janssens en Juffrouw Kaat… don’t tell anybody but she actually likes going there because she can actually also shop for herself, she just buys frocks for kids aged 18 – I kid you not- and forces herself into all these too cute Marni kids dresses!
She managed to get us some goodies and even though the temperatures were like boiling hot we decided to try it all on… even The Eloise was enthusiastic this time, as one of her outfits involved a cap.
Ok, gals, we gotta split now, as Eloise once more managed to misbehave, meaning that she has been banned to the smallest room of our house again and well ‘Hallo K3’ is about to start. A girl needs priorities right???
This is the Yelena speaking as The Eloise is off to I don’t know where in search of her ‘NEENA’, which basically is a white fluffy blanket she’s been dragging around ever since she was a monchi chi looking baby..,. she can not sleep without it and every time we have a fight, she starts calling out for ‘NEENA’…
This is the Eloise intervening as yes, I’m mad at Yelena and yes, I had to bite her again… something my mother doesn’t seem to approve, which results in me having to stand against some boring looking corner! So yes again, I’m crying like a raving mad coyote for my ‘NEENA’, who seems to be the only one to be enjoying my occasional biting.
After a week of hanging loose in “FuerteVemtura”, visiting the local “pestaurants” (Eloise can’t seem to be able to say restaurant) and goofing with my homies mister V, mister D, Lady Lou and the Yelena… my parents decided to return to Belgium. Somebody fire them for doing that, as I was happy and leading a perfect life in the land of numerous ice-cream hotspots, Fanta overload and no sleep till 10 o’clock fiesta’s.
I'm not so fond of drowning, so I take my precautions
Ohh yes, don’t forget the real surfin’ shizzle as daddy dear is obsessed with us becoming the next female Kelly Slater even if that involves some serious salt water gulping. But hey, we’ve gotten over it and have now forced ourselves to stay put on a board, for the sake of not having to go through the entire washing machine experience again. I now even call it my hobby and I cracked my piggy bank to buy myself this Surf Barbie, how cool is that?
So we’re back in Belgium and going to the “playa” on a daily base. We visited this Beachhouse 25 place in the native country of my mom: Holland, although el daddy seems to insist on the fact mama wasn’t born in the land of yummy cheese and rather refers to her as being half “Chile-huahualean and Prussian”, can somebody tell us where these cities are?????
Peace out, blogs to the kids and shake that little naked tushy… we just crack up every time we do that! So try it at home and keep us posted on the side effects of our pleasant goofiness…
Ready for the Bieber fever!
Hi you folks, this is the Yelena and Eloise (aka the mini-monster or el monstruocito), we are the official offspring of Mr. Engels & Mrs. Kirilove… The lady that’s totally into fashion and that -after years of having separate rooms- put us together in one space for the sole purpose of having an entire area she could dedicate to her own frocks and truckloads of shoes… We live in between dresses and stiletto’s and have obviously inherited this addiction.
Besides having candy, ice creams, skirts, K3 and loads of pink on our minds. Our brains are also a rumble jumble of languages as mother dearly decided to talk to us in Español, which pretty much results in conversations with a lot of ‘QUE?’ and ‘LECHE’. We hear you wonder what’s up with the English? Well, we’ve forced mom into downloading every possible “Dora app” as we strongly believe that Mister Justin Bieber will be blown away once he hears us communicate in his language, you only get one chance to get a good impression is what la mama says.
So yes, little mister cute Bieber will be in our country in April 2013! Which pretty much equals about 240 nights of sleep and reminds us of the fact we still have to memorize the lyrics to his latest album BELIEVE…
For this very special occasion The Eloise and I have already decided what to wear and we pretty much did this on our very own… without the help of mama, twitter or KZoom’s Joyce.
Our capability on deciding which fashion labels to choose for our “estupendo” combo’s is still not 100%, but our looks can be described as cool, laid back and with a dash of chic… don’t you think?
The Eloise is currently obsessed with skirts as according to her it’s the only thing she can turn around in… beats me what she means with that, but I suppose it has to do with the fact that when she makes her goofy looking pirouettes -she so sucks at that, mine are so much more Angelina Ballerina- her skirt “poofs” up. I’m more of a girly girl and totally into dresses, my mom pretty much hates the exemplar I’m wearing on these pics… I wonder why?
Finishing touch to add some real ‘baby, baby, baby, ohhh baby’ as we are talking Mister Bieber… our amazing Toykyokids hats available chez www.toykyokids.be.
