Fashion OOTD | Black & Pink.

I went with black and pink, my two besties, to the Glamour Beauty Festival. My two favourite colours after cobalt blue. Not only is black my happy colour, adding a pop of colour adds flair into the outfit! During autumn and winter are a scarf and my boy cap my go-to must haves. I confess: I’m in love with my cap! Guilty of wearing it every day, perfect for those cold windy days. The ones who know the weather in the Netherlands, know what I mean. Don’t let the sun fool you!

I had such a great time during the festival, but also while shooting this outfit of the day with my sister. I was in Amsterdam and I love that place! The city is alive, the architecture is beautiful to look at and very multicultural. The place to be, to meet other people! Too bad I didn’t think about to shoot pictures for my second Instagram account. It’s all about photography, my second passion next to blogging.

I found the perfect flared legging Loves. Gosh, this is the type of legging that you can wear as a pants. Yes, those exist! Very comfy, perfect for those days when you want to move around comfortable during a day. I rather enjoy the festival then to worry about too tight jeans. You don’t see it, but I’m wearing a over the butt tunic. I think tunics are great with flared leggings. It makes you look longer because of the proportion.

As you know me Loves, I’m a major addict when it comes to bags. I love how it comes in different styles and sizes. Like shoes, you never can go wrong with the perfect fit. The snake pattern on the bag is simple, just the way I like it. I’m not a major fan of patterns but sometimes I want to make an exception.

 

What is your go-to must haves Loves?

Fashion | GUESS Obsessed.

As long as I can remember, is GUESS one of my favourite brands when it comes to accessories. My first designer bag was a small crossbody blue bag. I was obsessed with it! Since then my love for the brand grew. What I love about the brand is that they have different styles in bags, shoes, wallets and more. From edgy to chic to bohemian, every woman or man will find her or his dream item. I never bought something and later regretted it!

When it comes to bags, I prefer shoppers or handbags with a strap. The first thing that I think about when I look for a bag, is the size the perfect size? I have the habit to take more than I need. So, it has to be a perfect! The shopper is called the Isabeau, I have written a blogpost about it. I wanted an edgy bag, a bag I usually don’t chose easily. But, this time I thought why not? The baby blue snakeskin detailed bag caught my eyes instantly, edgy and yet chic!

My second love for accessories is on the wallets from GUESS. The grey wallet suits perfectly with the Isabeau bag. The wine-red small wallet is perfect for when I decide to take a small bag. My latest purchase is the red wallet. It has many card compartments, an important thing, and golden details. I love that combination, it just never goes out of style! Same goes for the wallet, it has to be the right size. I put cards, of course money and my business cards. I also have coupons and pictures in it. I always make my things personal, especially when they are new. Only then I have the feeling that it’s truly mine.

I always have believed that jewellery makes an outfit complete. The watch has been given to me as a gift by my sister. The bangles have quotes engraved in them. The gold one has ‘’believe in yourself’’ in it and the rose plated has ‘’always & forever’’ in it. Such cute quotes! Definitely ones to remember.

 

What is your favourite brand?

Lifestyle | With MAHI On A Holiday.

My summer holiday from college officially started, until September am I a free elf! This summer am I going to work on myself, my blog and my studies. These are my top priority on my to do list during my summer. However, summer wouldn’t be summer if you don’t put your to do list aside. My yearly visitation to my roots in Morocco is off the table, this little setback doesn’t hold me to enjoy this year my second roots country: the Netherlands. I’m going to be a tourist in my own country by taking small holidays to see what the Netherlands should offer me besides my backyard. How better to do this together with a MAHI?

I was instantly obsessed with it as soon I put it on my wish list. Since I got it, I mostly use it for college but it is also perfect useable as a hand luggage. Since minimal and simple belongs to my sense of style, I chose this The Classic Tote bag and I love it! Leather is well known for its long shelf life and that’s what I love about leather bags. For a personal touch, you can get it embroidered, I chose my first name and last name first initials in the colour black. To me it gives that bit extra.

At this moment, I’m planning for a little getaway, I think it’s going to be somewhere in Europe. It is not official yet, but I’m already thinking what I’m going to put in my MAHI. Naturally I’m taking my notebook with me to write down my thoughts and blog related work. I will also take with me a travel size fashion magazine just for a bit of beauty related inspiration for my blog. And most of all the travel size is perfect for a holiday so I don’t have to carry a normal size fashion magazine with me. I also take with me my favourite sunny at the moment, Ray Ban sunglasses in my floral glasses case. When I’m on a holiday I don’t think a lot about my makeup. My currently lovie Chanel lippie is more than enough. However, my hair is quite important to me. So, I’m taking my hairbrush with me and of course it is travel size. Perfume is a must take for me, deodorant is also perfect but I feel that the scent doesn’t stay longer like perfume. So, for a quick fresh up I take a perfume with me that has a woody citrus scent like GUESS Seductive.

The last two items that I wouldn’t miss to take is my phone and camera. My phone for accessibility and my digital camera because of the size, my other camera would only be in the way of shooting memories!

Since it is quite a big bag, I will take clean underwear with me and other toiletry. The rest of the space is reserved for goodies I couldn’t resist to buy under the guise of ‘’cultural references’’!

New In | GUESS Isabeau.

I gave into my addiction: bags. I get so easily persuade just only by looking at them. The joy that I find in them are that they come in different styles and sizes. The most of all, no matter which style you wear: you will find a bag to match with. Just perfect!

I like the light grey colour of the bag. It gives it a chic look. You can adjust the belt handles at your choice, which is nice. You can wear it on your shoulders and take it with you by hand. What I also like is that the bag is a shopper size and since I take items with me that I basically don’t need, is the size great for me. It also has four small inner pockets. One with a zipper where I put my id in. Two small ones, one for my business cards and one for my favourite lipstick and of course the usual small pocket for my phone. This is so ideal because I can get sometimes frustrated if I can’t put the small things neat in my bag that I frequently need. How about you Loves?

I am lately into the minimal style. I’m still wearing black, white and grey lately. I am even turning my room decor slowly in these colours. So, this bag is a new addition for my change to minimal style. I probably will do a room tour on my blog when I finish it. Back to my bag: I am a bit in love with it because it was a while since I bought something for myself that came with a price.  Under the guise of good grades, I gave myself a go.

GUESS is well known for their brand logo at the front of their bags and chains. I like that they are in golden. I like the combination of light grey and gold. It also makes it a true GUESS bag.

What do you think Loves?

Fashion – Tips | Always On Time.

img_5113

Watches are the perfect accessories that you can wear with any style. They are timeless, fashionable and because of the many designs it is a style chameleon of an item. I like it! Even if you wear it with no other accessory it can make your outfit complete. Simplicity with a twist is than my favourite go to when it comes to fashion.

I recommend you Loves to start with your own watch collection. They always come in good use. Not only they are practical they are a great accessory to add flair on your ootd. They are also a good investment when it comes to having a collection of expensive bling.

img_5115

img_5119

My watches are very diverse from chic to edgy. They match with the many outfits I wore and still wear. Find your own style and match the watches with your own taste. My newest addition is the brown gold watch from Rosefield. It is truly my latest obsession! I did not have a brown one yet, so the decision was easy made. What I love about watches is that I see them as something that I use with my daily essentials and it depends on how I feel, what I wear which one I want to wear it with. When I wear, my golden Guess watch I feel a bit special because it is given to me by my sister as a birthday gift. This one has an emotional value.

img_5134

Simplicity is truly my statement, so I fell in love with my black Daniel Wellington watch. I have it for a while now and I still can’t get enough of it. A black coloured watch is to me like a little black dress; it is a fashion item that you need to have.

img_5136

I’m not the most difficult person when it comes to purchasing stuff. I can be easily happy with an inexpensive product as with an expensive one. So, I was happy to see beautiful watches with good quality and wallet friendly. On top of that; they are perfect for my style!

img_0753

I like the colour pink a lot, it looks sweet and yet again the choice was easy made. To make my basis colours watches complete I added of course a grey one. To keep it edgy I wanted a watch that has a striking look. My silver Guess watch with leopard print on the side was my perfect match.

Fashion | Crossbody Bags & Clutches.

img_4632

When it comes to diversity in fashion, style comes in different items and sizes. You will always find something that truly belongs to your style, to me that is the beauty of fashion. I define my style as “not perfect”. This means to me that my style comes in many names, from minimal to edgy to bohemian. I like oversized, layering and neat. I like, chic, casual and girly. When you could look into my closet you would see what I mean when I write that fashion can be a Walhalla for mixing and matching and I love it!

Today I’m showing you Loves not my all cross body and clutches collection. I promise you would love it especially when you have “fashion is more than clothing” in the back of your beautiful minds.

img_4636

I don’t stick to one colour when it comes to my bags. I believe that bags are just like shoes you can match them with many styles. I do stick with chic, minimal and bohemian designs because they come close to my own style. I wanted to add a bright colour into my collection with a chic yet edgy touch. When I saw the pink one at Primark I liked it instantly! This is the clutch that I had in mind. Normally I keep my taste save but I had ‘’why not?’’ moment when I saw the beads cross body bag. I hold it in my hand with this ootd because the sound of the beads was a bit overwhelming while walking. Holding it in my hand the sound was slightly less.

The bleu Guess bag was my first designer bag I bought. I remembered the day that I bought it, I was with two of my best friends and just got my first pay check. I was so excited! I have it for years now and even if it contains traces that it is worn a lot, it is still dear to me that I don’t want to throw it away. I think that this is what they mean when they say you cannot forget your first love hihi..

Imagine yourself in colourful Morocco with many colours around you, Moroccan architecture, their traditional clothing and the souks with little mountains of spices. Are you imagining it already Loves? This vibe I’m still having when I look at my orange leather bag from Morocco. I fell in love with the beauty of the colour orange and the details on it.

Which one do you like?

Fashion #OOTD | I’m Ready For Autumn.

img_4425

Although I am a real summer and spring lover I cannot avoid the autumn and winter season, nobody can; but I do can try to love it and make the most of it. So, new season equals new wardrobe and I can’t wait to hit the stores again!

img_4400

As you all know me Loves I plea for an outfit that has details so imagine what I thought about my feather jacket. I fell instantly in love with it because I truly love outfits with a twist. That is also why I chose flared jeans for this outfit. This kind of jeans makes your legs look endlessly long and for a shorty like me I felt in my element. Just like having a good fit skinny jean I also recommend you Loves to have at least one flared jeans in your wardrobe.

img_4428

When the seasons is changing you automatically change clothing colours in your closet. I like if the colours emerald green and gold are combined, it gives a sophisticated look when it comes to wearing black as a basic colour. Just like the colour black, the colour gold belongs also in the classic colours list. As I already spoke to you in my Basic Love blogpost, starting with the basics you can create your own style however you want it. I think that is the beauty of fashion, it defines every style!

img_4416

I am definitely a shoe and bags-aholic, the golden details on my cross body bag swooped me away. The golden details give the bag a chic look and this while the price tag was very kind to me hihi…

Are you ready for autumn Loves?

Fashion – Style Tips | Basic Love!

IMG_3830

Fashion is important, your own style defines who you are. I always say and think that fashion is like falling in love at the first sight that grows into loving the inside. At the very beginning you search what your style is. At some moments in your life you go with the flow and it can turn out ugly or straight up beautiful. When that stage is over you are going to feel comfortable in your own skin that results into maintaining in your own style creation.

It doesn’t matter what kind of style you have, from bohemian, to modern or to preppy. We all need the basics to start with. If you have a style like mine that is minimal and less is more, am I going to tell you Loves what my style tips are.

IMG_3825

The perfect denim jeans, we cannot live without them. Yes, literally! We all own one or two pairs that we wear daily. The one that uplifts our butt, our confidence and even let us think about our memories: the jean that you wore on your first date or the one that you wore on your break up. Our beloved jean: we wash you, throw you on the floor and even tear you apart but we adore you!

The second clothing piece has also a place in our hearts and wardrobes. The black blazer. Perfect with the jean, dress and skirt! A versatile garment that everyone should have. The endless combinations that you can make with it is just amazing. One of the combinations is wearing it with a blouse. It can be a beautiful white one, chic black or a stripped one just for that extra flair!

IMG_3827

Not only with clothing you need the basics, accessories play a big part too. Not only they make an outfit complete it gives also that last boost up! I bet on it that every lady has at least one black handbag or clutch. The same as the black blazer Loves, you can use and take it with you and it doesn’t even matter which style you have.

Pumps! The heeled shoes that never goes out of style and to be honest, any black heeled shoe. From round noses and yes, even flats. They are perfect for any style and it belongs into the list of many other dream pairs like the sneakers and ankle boots.

To put the last finishing touches, I recommend every fashionista to invest in a good watch that has the basic colours as black and silver. To stay in your style, you always can add it up with a print or edgy details like leopard spots. Don’t forget the silver rings, yet again with an edgy touch like a black gemstone or adding a pendant on a simple necklace.

 

What are your basics?

Beauty | My Beauty Love.

IMG_3821

Today I’m giving you Loves an update from my previous blogpost about my beauty favourites. While that blogpost was more about my basics that I always have in my beauty stash, am I going to share with you what I daily use. While my beauty routine changes with the season; this beauty love I always keep using. Although the brand and colour changes but otherwise they are here to stay.

IMG_3822

IMG_3823

When I can’t wash my face thoroughly due to lack of time, these face wipes come in handy. I use them first before I use water. When I buy these wipes I always search for the ones that is intended for sensitive skin and is PH neutral. The reason behind it is because I want to prevent a rash or a breakout. You never know. My daily make-up routine is quick and easy, I use an BB cream, a highlight pen for the corners of my eyes for an open look. A mascara, lipstick or a lip gloss and a highlighter or a bronzer. I prefer to sleep those ten minutes than to stand in front of a mirror.

My hands are the only body part that requires intensive care every day, especially my nails. Sometimes my nails break easily so I cut them short and when they grow it stays good for a while and then they break of. It is a vicious circle! To give my nails a ‘’hard’’ layer I mostly use a nail polish that has a natural look. These from Cairuo that I bought in Morocco is perfect for it.

IMG_3824

My oils! I just cannot live without them. Yes, it sounds extravagant but I mean it. After a shower I use drops in my hair. Lately I’m using Black Seed Oil instead of Moroccan Gold Argan Oil. Both have miraculous benefits and as a frequent heated tools user I cling to it!

Last but not least. I don’t go out the door without a spray of perfume. Either it is my Calvin Klein or this Guess bottle. Both are floral and wooded scented and radiate femininity. Love it!

What is your beauty love?

Fashion #OOTD | Rose Gold Pink.

IMG_3416

IMG_3413

Since I’m having Spring vibes and the days getting longer I attend to change my clothing in cute colours like pink. Not only it brightens my mood, I also feel that pink suits my character. It sounds weird but I feel comfy in pink.

I told you Loves that I’m into loose fit tops; this is the reason why this burgundy coloured sweater became my favourite. I wore it over a pink loose fit tee that I wore last Summer. Who said you cannot wear Summer clothing during Winter? Because of it you can enjoy more from the clothing piece and you can watch your pennies. Two birds with one blow! At the same time, burgundy goes so well with pink!

IMG_3425 IMG_3446

I can feel happy when I wear a skinny that suits my body figure. This cigar fit denim jean feels even comfy. It is still made from real denim and not that stretch denim, if you know what I mean? I really don’t like this kind of fabric because during your day it turns saggy.

In my last Goodies Look Book I bought these shoes with sale. I truly like things that is not ‘’perfect’’. In fact all goodies that have details or edges. The stripe on the nose of the ankle booth and the belt details caught my eyes when I saw it on the store shelf. The bag I chose for this ootd is a golden oldie. I have this bag for years! Just like my shoes collection. The bag is spacious I can cram everything in it hihi….! Off topic: Please, do let me know if you would like to see my over the years collected bags.

IMG_3441

IMG_3439

Writing about details Loves; investing in good pieces like a watch will keep you happy during the years and especially if it has an emotional value. This watch from Guess is a birthday gift from my sister. I’m lately into the necklace with necklace trend. These pink rose goodies is been gifted to me when I attend the press event from Mooi PR. The infinity necklace is from Swarovski and the necklace bar is from TWYN by Mi Moneda. Yet again this necklace bar has a value that is important to me. It is very personal because my name is with my own handwriting engraved on it by TWYN. Love it!

A watch or even a necklace can make your outfit complete. It’s a fun addition that you can style in your own way!

Fashion #OOTD | Sweet Pink.

IMG_2624

Who likes pink? I do! I feel very comfortable when I wear something in the colour pink. I think it’s because I see the colour pink as something sweet, cute and elegant. It probably sounds crazy in your ears but it is just beautiful colour! Even all the shades of pink are beautiful. Not only in clothing but also in décor; like candles, vases etc. And how about nail polish? Lingerie? Perfume? I think it is just the woman in me…Hihi.

When I was younger I hated turtleneck sweaters! I would not wear them; I even cannot look at them! It looked so hideous on others and on me. You know what they say; old fashion always comes back so I took the opportunity and bought one. What was I thinking!? They are so pretty! I love them now. It gives you warmth, it looks elegant especially when you put your hair up and it comes with many colours and of course in different versions. What more could I wish for?

What also is happening in fashion is sleeveless gilets, (trench) coats and blazers. You either love or hate it. The woolen gilet I’m wearing, I have it quite a while now and to be honest I don’t wear it a lot because I would not wear something like that daily. Once in a while will do just fine for me.

Pink shoes! Who would ever think that I’m going to wear one? I love that it looks chic and boyish at the same time. Weird can be sometimes good too. That is what I thought when I saw this bag on the shelf at the Guess store. A mix match of the same colour looks so edgy, a unique item in your own closet.

What do you think about turtleneck sweaters and sleeveless items Loves?

Having good beauty products is half the work of what comes looking with beauty. Not only the right tools but also what should not be missing in your vanity. The basic is truly what matters. Leastwise, it is a good start for making my work easy.

Let me show you Loves what my favourites are.

IMG_1832

Good mascara and eyeliners I cannot live without. These two are truly the ones I just buy every month even though I don’t need them. I have a bit of a ‘’bad habit’’ when it comes too mascara. I’m always trying and searching for the right brush. And I must say the small brushes of mascara works perfect for my small eyelashes.

A brown blush, in particularly a shimmer one for that Summer glowy look. I cannot get enough of it either. Who doesn’t want Summer all year?

IMG_1835

IMG_1836

I think that perfume is every woman’s guilty pleasure. Just the bottles are candy’s to look at. I’m a major fan of sweet and woody scented perfume. Same goes with nail polishes. Every woman should have a red one, the one for that classic look. And me…Well blue and silver. Needless to say.

IMG_1838

IMG_1840

Heat protected spray and BB cream are beauty products that you cannot miss. I use BB cream daily. It is a perfect alternative of foundation. I go for a BB cream for that natural look. I wrote about my hair secrets. You would know I style my hair a lot and a heat protected spray is counted in my hair routine.

As you have noticed my flat lays are not only with beauty products but also accessories. The reason behind it is décor and that accessories are just like beauty products a detail that makes a look complete.

What are your beauty favourites?

Fashion #OOTD | Autumn Bleu.

IMG_0925 IMG_0910IMG_0930 IMG_0927

I had a lunch date with my lovely sister as I was dressing myself to go; I took a last look in the mirror and I noticed that I was dressed in mostly bleu…I was totally unaware of it! I guess the ‘’ghost of blue’’ took me over hihi…

You can wear perfectly a dress in the fall! Wearing it with tights and a warm coat with a scarf and you are good to go.

I really like my statement necklace. It gave my outfit a chic touch. Most of all an eye catcher just completes an outfit. My bag gave me a little summer vibe! Bright full colors! Summer all over again…To bad it rained right after I met my sister and I had to take my umbrella-ella-ella ey!
