I am a lover of classic, never out of style items. These watches and bracelet from Daniel Wellington are those items. The many styles are minimalistic and refined, I love how you can change the design just by the interchangeable straps. Because of it, it just never goes out of style because you can wear it at any occasion or even daily. The perfect piece to match your outfit of the day!

Fashion | Let’s Go To The Beach!

During summer I feel that the sky is the limit. I feel more energetic, confident and my skin glows. The weather is getting hotter, I’m getting active and love is in the air. I wish I could have summer all year around! Summer wouldn’t be summer if you plan at least one trip to the beach to enjoy your leisure. So, dream with me about going to the beach Loves!

I’m going to the beach and I’m taking with me without a doubt a good fitting swimwear. My tankini did his job, I’m in love! Of course, it should be blue it’s my favourite colour and I like the combination of a tank top with a bikini slip a lot. It adds flair onto your beach day outfit when you wrap a scarf around your hips. The tank top fits perfectly on my pear-shaped body and the bikini slip fits just right on my bum. Hunkemöller is such a paradise when it comes to swimwear, with their diversity of it you’ll find your dream piece. Super model Doutzen Kroes launched her swimwear collection and they are stunning. Don’t even let me write about the accessories they have: heaven!

Sun equals fun and sunscreen, it is so important to use a SPF protection. Sunburn is the downside of a beach day. So, don’t let it ruin your day! When the day comes to an end you feel like you don’t want to go home and you’re in need of a quick refreshment, is a water bottle spray a true holy grail. Perfect for those stuffy nights. Beach day equals also less is more, no makeup because of the natural glow you’ll getting, flip flops and sunglasses to enjoy nature (read: checking out sun kissed six packs).

Share with me your perfect beach day Loves!

Lifestyle | My Desk & Room Decor Ideas.

Am I the only one who has a habit of alteration when a new season comes up? During spring and summer, I prefer my room all tide up, open, minimal and invariably in the colours white, black, marble and rose gold. A clear house or room means to me a clear mind so, cleaning and decorating my room is for me an energizer to be all boosted up into the new season!

First, I want you Loves to meet my desk. I have a typical white Ikea desk with one drawer and under it a cabinet. I put the drawer the usual desk things like washi tape, post-its, stapler, hole puncher etc. In the cabinet I put study books, syllabuses and other study works. On top of my desk I put my favourite décor piece: my grid. As you can see Loves, I’m hanging on it cards and reminders. I also keep a magazine, notebooks and a portfolio of my fashion sketches. Next, I have my desk lamp, a rose gold geometric décor item from Primark and a Starbucks cup where I put empty batteries in to recycle. To store my memory cards and big clips, I put it in a green glass box. This way I stored it and have it within reach. For my daily task I place the papers in a to-do tray and when I’m done with it, I put in the done tray. In the last tray I put my printouts in it to remind myself of my to-do’s and goals. I also have a desk planner where I write my weekly to-dos, appointments and errands to run. What I don’t like from my desk is my pencils and pen holders, I basically just put them in square vases. I want to change this, but I have no idea how! Share with me your ideas Loves.

My favourite corner of my room is definitely where my bookcases stand. I store not only books and magazines but also my makeup and other beauty products like perfumes and oils for my hair. For I quick touch up I placed a rose gold mirror to look at before I go. I also have my jewellery displayed, not the ones I wear daily but the ones for occasions. To cosy my room a bit up I placed candles on it. Everything I don’t want to see I stored in small boxes or bags.

Blogging is something I love the do, even though I lack time management. To keep the joy of it, I printed my name which is also my blog link and slogan on aluminium at Fotofabriek.nl. I am so in love with it, it turned out so well! It feels like I have immortalized my blog on a picture. It came at the right time because I wanted to start with a small redo of my room. Wall decoration is something that’s so easy to do and also gives a big change in a room. They have many options for wall decoration, like printing pictures on dibond or canvas. You also can choose from different sizes, mine has the size 30×20 horizontal. I have something in my room that represent my blog and me, my room feels complete now!

New In | I Got Mail!

Who knows that joyful moment when the mailman brings you packages that you ordered online? Who am I kidding, everyone knows that feeling! Well Loves, imagine my joy when I received these goodies from ToSave because I collaborated with them. Move over Wish and Ali Express, there is a new store in town! I sporadic order at that kind of online stores because mostly the quality is below my expectations but, I’m sincerely surprised with these goodies I got from ToSave.

I chose a mini back pack that you can wear on your back and as an crossbody bag. They have many colours, but green caught my eyes and it matched perfectly with the golden details. What I like about the bag is, even it has a small size it has four compartments. One at the front that closes with a golden detailed magnet, one at the back that closes with a zipper and when you open it you’ll find a small compartment for your cards or keys. The material of the bag is made with PU leather, I am amazed about the quality! On the top of the bag there is a handle which is finished with gold buttons and stitched thread, this also applies to the entire bag. I already know which bag I’m going to take when I go out or run small errands!

Makeup brushes are to me like bags and shoes, you’ll never have enough! I fell in love with the galaxy colours. This brush set contains seven brushes that you can use for your foundation, blush, for blending, your eyes and lips. The first thing that I do when I buy makeup brushes is pulling the hairs of the brush gently to see if hairs fall out, it didn’t happen with these brushes. They are even so soft! The size of the brushes is pocket size, which is great. I can carry them around in my makeup pouch easily.

The last goodies I chose is a 925-sterling silver jewellery set. I am so happy with it! It has a chic look that I truly like about jewellery. I chose this one because I can wear it as a set during a special occasion or individually at a typical college day. The bracelet can you adjust easily just by pressing it together. One earring has slightly a different bend than the other one, it doesn’t bother me much. You can bend it however you like. When I wore the necklace around my neck, it reminded me of a teardrop. The ring looks like two teardrops coming together, simple yet chic!

Tell me Loves, what do you think about these goodies?

New In | Balmain X L’Oréal.

I was so in love with the Balmain X H&M collaboration that this match made in heaven with L’Oréal got me shook! I even pre-ordered it. When I got it, I was so curious about it that I opened it immediately! But, my first impression about it was: it looks good. Yes, just good. Even though from the outside it looks chic and edgy, just like all things from Balmain and I truly like that vibe. I suddenly felt a ‘’oh’’ feeling. The lipstick package felt fragile like, if I dropped it on the floor it would break. It even came with a small damage onto the cap so my hyped feeling slightly changed. But I learned don’t judge a book by its cover

When I opened it the first thing that you will notice is the smell. I loved it! As I told in my first impressions blogpost, I buy when it comes to makeup with my nose. Since I bought the lipstick online was the smell a pleasant surprise! The smell reminds me of autumn, a wood scent with a twist of a scent from lilies. It even sounds like a fairy-tale.

The lipstick comes with different shades and I couldn’t choose. The shades are so daring and so fierce! The opposite of me. I watched Balmain’s promo videos about it online, more than once and I still couldn’t decide. At one moment, I thought let me choose a shade that I wouldn’t chose easily. So, I chose Confession. It comes almost close to a nude shade and as you know me Loves, have I a love and hate relationship with nude colours. I am glad to find out, when I swatched it on my wrist that the shade has a peachy colour as a sub tone.

When I applied on my lips, the creamy lipstick went smoothly over them. The lipstick gives a matt effect which makes it long-lasting. I am happy to say that the lipstick has a place between my MAC Collection and high end favourite Chanel lippie!

 

Which shade from the collection would you chose Loves?

Shopping Guide | Wishing You Were Here.

I don’t know about you Loves, but I’m a ‘’list person.’’ From making plans for college to running small errands I write lists. Even when I go shopping you will find a list in my wallet with items that I need. If I stick to it? That is another story. I feel sometimes even lost when I don’t have a list with me. Thank god for technology! I can visit my blog on my phone now for a quick reminder. So, let me share with you my shopping guide about items I’m wishing about and maybe you will find your dream item too.

Jo Malone is well known for their beautiful candles. I sometimes forget they have a wide assortment of colognes, bath and body products.  The bottles and packages are already keepers, imagine the smell and when you use it. Such luxury!

Lip glosses you can’t get enough of them, I’m speaking for myself now. Just look at the tube! This lip gloss from Dior is such a classic, it is available in many colours but I have set my eyes on the girly pink. Talking about pink, how cute is this feather skirt from SuperTrash? Since we are in the middle of the wedding season: combining this cute skirt with a pastel coloured top and edgy heels and you are good to go! Staying with SuperTrash: not only their clothes are dreamy to wear but their accessories are pretty to look at too. I’m a sucker for notebooks and their black ones are so chic. Perfect for college

Bags! My guilty pleasure. I found these beauties at MAHI and both are made from soft leather which means they are built to last. This is what I’m looking for in a college bag! I carry my laptop and books with other stuff that I basically don’t need everywhere I go. I love bags that are fashionable and functional. Who hasn’t had his bag strap broken just because of the heaviness? And do you remember those ugly bags that you are forced to use because otherwise you cannot bring all your books with you to study at home. Don’t forget carrying two bags! Kudos to MAHI. By the way Loves, you can personalize your bag with embroidery that they stitch onto the bag or accessories of your choice. Also, good to know: MAHI donates $1.50 from every purchased bag to clean water causes. Hello, win-win situation!

As you know me Loves: I like edgy details. I fell head over anchor about this black bracelet from Lavastoney. The combination of black and silver is so classic! I like timeless items, they stay fashionable for a long time. Because of this you think more about the quality when you buy it because you can enjoy longer from it! Also, a classic: Chanel. I’m having lately an obsession on this brand. Chanel is to me the black dress for fashion and the contour for beauty. The cap of the brush is going to protect the hairs of the brush which is perfect for when you need a quick touch up on the go!

Which item are you wishing about Loves?

Beauty Review | Ziaja.

img_4929

As am I getting older I’m getting more and more idle. I think it is because you feel your body is changing, like it is upgrading towards adulthood. Your body, your mind and skin changes into a ‘’shape’’ that is called ‘’you’’’. You will get to know yourself better and you will anticipate to it. Whether you like it or not! It is just something that you cannot change because it is called life.

img_4930

During my life, my facial skin became important to me, I suffered from acne my whole teenage years and they still pop up every now and then. We all are familiar with those annoying intruders on our faces that are caused by stress, diet and even cosmetic products. Because of this, am I always pleased to get to know new brands. Especially when you discover them spontaneously. I met Ziaja through my latest unboxing blogpost and I fell in love with it ever since.

The beauty of Ziaja is that it is based on natural active ingredients and their pharmaceutical experiences, it has a refined and pleasant fragrance and light texture. All their products are carefully dermatologically and allergy tested in their own labs, never on animals! I have been using it for a while now and I am very pleased with it. The moment I opened it for the first time, the smell was such a pleasure to smell! Not chemical at all. The preservatives are reduced to the essential minimum making it enjoyable to use.

The assortment of Ziaja is tremendous; from woman to men to children. Something for everyone! Their focus is on skin, so you will find a range of facial care, body care and even hair care. Because Ziaja has a wide range of beauty products they have thought of all skin types and this shows that they are thoughtful towards their customers.

img_4932

Lately wat also has been important to me is where I get my beauty products from and if it truly works. I enjoy it every time when I use it. Whenever I’m done with showering I use Moisturising Body Lotion with Silk Proteins. It absorbs quickly and my skin feels soft right away! Because it is moisturising and it reduces skin roughness I use it also on my elbows and knees for that extra soft touch. During my day, I use the Manuka Tree Purifying Normalising Day Cream. It has an SPF 10 factor and it is for an oily/combination skin type which matches perfectly with my own skin type. My facial skin goes from oily, especially on my T-Zone (forehead, nose, chin and the apples of my cheeks.) to dry at my jaw line. The smell of the Manuka Tree is refreshing on my skin and what I mostly love it doesn’t make my face oily at all!

When I want to pamper myself after a long day I remove my makeup with the Cucumber Cleansing Milk, yet again for an oily/combination skin type. The smell of cucumber makes me feel like I’m in a spa resort relaxing with a towel on my head and two slices of cucumber on my eyes. Perfect!

Are you already imagining it Loves?

Lifestyle | My Phone Case.

img_4925

Do you know the feeling when you get something new you want to personalize it? I had this feeling when I got my iPhone. Do you remember when I told you Loves now I need a cute phone case? I finally got one!

I am lately into marble prints and the colour pink. When I found out you can create phone cases on Case Company I fell yet again in love with the prints! The variations they have on their printed cases are very trending; from Kim Kardashians famous cry face to Drakes hotline bling quotes to cactuses.

img_4920

If that is not enough, you can customize a case with your own pictures on any case you want. They have many case models like flip case, wooden, hard, soft with matt finish and fine finish.  They also have a Magic Magnet, a strong magnet for one of your air vents of your car. It is very easy to use; you just place between your phone and the case a small metal plate and hold it on the Magic Magnet and you are ready to cruise to many places! Not to speak about their laptop sleeves and ipad cases.

img_4922

For that extra personal touch, I choose to use my blog name, which is my name. It didn’t fell complete so I added Fashion-Beauty & Lifestyle Blogger for the whole package. I choose the font Sacramento but you can choose from many other fonts that are well-known and popular. This is not all; you can use any colour that you want and you are free to bold it or make it italic. You can even centre it! While you are busy making your own art work, you can rotate and resize text and emoji’s. This is impossible to forget!

Because of the ability to create a case of your own style, every time when you use your phone it feels like it is just brand new!

 

I am very curious, how you would personalize your case?

Fashion – Tips | Sunnies All Season.

img_4915

It is all about the details, this is my well-known motto. When I have this kind of moment I get all tingly inside because I have that thought that nothing is perfect unless you look closer to details and then style it on your own.

img_4823

You would understand my thought just by looking at these Solo-Solis sunnies. I fell in love with the cat eyed frame, it reminded me of the popular sunglasses from Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Since I’m writing about details, the golden parts of the sunnie got me hooked! Black with gold never goes out of style and the combination together is just perfect.

img_4911

The beauty of sunnies is that you can use them daily, to me they are just like wearing your favourite lipstick. It is always good and it doesn’t even matter what you wear or what your style is. Solo-Solis means in Latin ‘’Only Sun’’ but that does not stop me to wear it all seasons I mean, how could I? They have many sophisticated frames that even I couldn’t pick just one!

img_4912

What I truly love about this Sunnie is it is light weighted, perfect when you put it on your chest when you wear a shirt or on top of your head to give your whole look that extra flair. They are very thoughtful when it comes to their eyewear, they have a UV400 protection. You can cheerfully enjoy your view during sunny days and how can I forget what we all secretly do; staring at that hottie who crossed your path. Right Loves?

New In | Silver Mirrored Sunnies.

IMG_4307

Summer means an excuse to get new sunnies because the ones you already have are “soooo last summer” and at the end you have a lot in stock that you can open a store for yourself. Glasses are just like shoes; you can’t get enough. Accessories definitely make an outfit complete. When it comes to different kinds of glasses, GlassesShop is a truly Walhalla of glasses frames, from all time classics to funky and retro, just perfect! As a fashion and accessories encourager I felt in my element while wandering and scrolling through their online store, like a virtual wanderlust!

IMG_4308

I chose the frame Evansville Wayfarer in the colour blue and silver. I like that the colours are parted two ways, blue on top of silver/gray-ish. It gives that edgy look and I like that twist. What I also like is the lightless of the frame, it makes it optimal to use. The affordable eyeglasses are not only from high quality they also give the perfect statement to every wearer. So Loves, who wear prescription sunglasses or glasses will look great with these eye catchers!

IMG_4309

Do you know the latest silver mirror trend? GlassesShop goes with the hype and I’m following! I want to try it on my nails and now I can put the mirrored beauty right on my nose. Not only is it fashionable, it comes in handy when you want to look shameless at your love or summer crush. Sssst….let’s keep this between us.

IMG_4310

Because I’m so happy with my new sunnies I want to make you Loves happy too! Use code GSHOT50 for a 50% discount on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses! Whoop! I have to say that sale frames are excluded but that doesn’t matter with the frame Walhalla GlassesShop has.

 

Enjoy your gift Loves!

Fashion Collab | Leren Connor Goes Festival Wear.

Leren Connor, she surprised me again! Her artistic expression I can see again in her festival collection. Her originality and attention to detail proves to be her trademark which I truly appreciate. When I see this collection the first thing that comes to my mind is happiness. The typical festival mood laid back and relaxed. Skirts from strips of fabric, tulle and crop tops anything goes!

”Over the last few months, Leren Connor and the team have taken a dramatic turn on the route to achieving their goals through the fashion industry and now the Festival scene.

This year LerenHQ Has spent a lot of time getting to know the Comic Convention industry which has also enticed the start of costume design through both Leren Connor and GYGO (get your geek on) the sister brand. Taking a step back from usual routine and embarking on a new path this small independent label has been making some big steps in all the right places.

So much has changed and due to this the team is thoroughly excited about the next year to come. Back in 2012 Leren attended her 1st Festival “Wilderness” as a trader, from this the team has been eager to get stuck in with the festival scene, this year it happened. At the end of August this label travelled down south to attend Into the Wild Festival, with the designs selling like hot cakes Leren is even more determined to get the Festival wear out there. Festivals are a great way to express costume design as well which is why it will also be a great marketing place for GYGO the sister brand which specializes in geek wear and costume design.

12002807_10155957660440123_6321050285984260217_n

80% of what this label does is recycled and upcycled, the free fabric skirts and headbands you see are made from all the scraps collected in the Leren Connor studio.”

(Pictures originally from Leren Connor.)

Her hold on environmentally friendly design also applies to this collection and that makes it yet again unique. You can see that she loves what she makes and it also radiates from her collections.

The growth she is experiencing is noticed. Hard work really pays off. Her devotion will bring her to high places that she deserves. We will hear from her again!

Do you love this collection as much as I do?
