Fashion #OOTD | Something Blue, Something French & Pink Hot Chocolate!

If you follow me on my Instagram Loves, you would know I went with my blogging gal EsraElif.com shooting again. We had so much fun! We went to a cute café in Utrecht, the Netherlands, called Frenchie Café. The place is so Instagram worthy! Marble tables, golden cutlery and a long pink sofa, I loved every bit of it! And the food…! Loves, I was in heaven. Pink hot chocolate and American pancakes with fruits and maple syrup. Just yum!

While I was at it, I also took pictures for my photography account on Instagram. I love the architecture of the buildings and the houses in Utrecht. They are so burgundian and picturesque. I felt like I was wandering in another century. I took pictures of the Domtoren and the Pandhof garden. It was so very nice to see! Keep my Instagram on your mind Loves, I will upload those pictures very soon. Pinky promise!

I don’t wear a lot of dresses and when I saw the photos while uploading on my laptop, I thought by myself that I should wear them more often! First, I love the blue color, all shades of blue by the way. Second, the dress feels so soft that it falls like a feather over my body. It is very light weighted that it doesn’t bother me while walking or sitting. Very comfortable! I combined it with a knee long coat. I prefer that length or longer when I wear a long dress.

I can be so happy when it comes to boots. Because of the block heels are the boots made for walking. However, they are new, I wore them for the first time during the shooting. Ouch! What we bloggers do for our blog. I like that it looks like it falls from my legs, it makes the boots edgy and it suit perfectly under a dress or skirt.

It was a very long time since I wore long earrings. For years I wore just stud earrings because it accentuates my jawline. Same goes for wearing dresses, I should wear long earrings more! If you know me Loves, I have a bag addiction. When I saw the bag, I was hooked. I love the suede color and that its big enough to put my laptop in for college. It does not have the same color as my boots, but hey…Not everything needs to be perfect. Especially with an outfit!

Fashion #OOTD | Different City & Blogger Meeting!

The reason why I like to blog is the interaction you get from different people all over the world. It feels like getting candy for the hard work I put in my blogging game. So, I am definitely open for meeting other bloggers and explore other cities! When it comes to shooting for outfits, I depend on my sister. She is not all the time available that’s why it is a pleasure to meet another blogging gal! Especially when you have a lot in common, the conversations we head felt natural. Like I know her for quite a while! Esra Elif if your reading this, it was a pleasure to meet you! Thank you for spending time with me and bringing me to the cutest café of Amersfoort. Next time it is definitely on me!

For this day I’m wearing a combination of edgy and chic. The army green colored jeans have side pockets on my tights. With it I wore a black sweater and black pointed nose ankle boots. I am without a doubt an ankle boots girl, I am obsessed with them! In my humble shoe collection, you can find different colors ankle boots. Talking about obsession, bags. Yes, bag-o-holic writing this. A black bag is always a good thing and what the fun part of the bag is, it is a square bag. Now I have something different than most bags.

Don’t let the sun fool you! It was a cold sunny day; a day that makes you think you don’t need a coat and when you go outside you instantly feel the cold wind greeting you. My grey shawl was a pleasure to have, even though it got blown away like my hair. The trench coat kept me warm enough. It is a coat that is perfect for autumn days but to cold for winter days. Don’t you just love the diversity in fashion!

Fashion #OOTD | Comfy & Biker Boots!

I don’t know about you Loves, but I prefer comfy and oversized above everything. Who doesn’t know that comfortable feeling of not worrying about tightness around your legs? It’s like walking in your pajamas all day!

When it comes to wearing comfy, I prefer leggings and oversized sweaters. I love how it is easy to wear, it doesn’t cost you a lot of work and time in the morning. The perfect outfit for running errands and having early morning classes. They say leggings aren’t pants, boy they haven’t worn one that is thick and tight and feels like second skin! The ones that is seamless and not see trough, visualize it with me Loves. Because it is quite hard to find the perfect one. I like black with a color twist combination a lot, especially when the color black is really black. That’s what I love about leggings, no matter how many times I let the washing machine wash it, it stays black. Adding a pop of color adds flair into a whole black outfit so, you never can go wrong with black!

Styling it with good clothing items like a leather jacket makes it complete. Finishing it off with biker boots and you’re ready to go! Is it just me? Or are outfits that you feel comfortable in and style it off with edgy items the perfect outfits?

Velvet, also a thing that I’m getting obsessed with. The shopper is perfect to carry with me for running errands. I like how big it is, I can put anything it. It also feels soft and not stiff like many bags. Black bags, you really got to love them!

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 #OOTD |Trench(coat), Cap & Go!

Loves, I have a new outfit of the day for you! It has been awhile since my latest OOTD, which was during Summer in Morocco. I miss Morocco so much, it’s getting colder and colder in The Netherlands, typical autumn weather. Dark clothes, sweaters and hats are taking it over from colourful clothing, sandals and sun glasses.

A black skinny is my all-time favourite clothing item, I have like two of the same fit in my closet. I want them to stay black, so I wear them alternately. This way they stay black and I was them when needed. Autumn equals oversized, I’ll make sure that I have black sweaters in my wardrobe. You never can go wrong with black! What you also never can go wrong with is a trench coat. I love how it adds flair into a simple outfit, like the one I’m wearing. Beige is the perfect colour, it never goes out of style. I like the details on them, like the black strap on the sleeves and black buttons.

I’m lately obsessed with my captain cap! If you follow me on Snapchat, SaidaSnaps, you have seen me rocking it during the cold weather. I like the woven strap and captain button on it. It gives that edgy, yet chic look. I also hide unabashedly underneath the cap during cycling, one: I can conquer the wind and two: my hair doesn’t turn into a cotton ball. I’m ready for autumn, black clothing is hanging in my closet and black shoes are taking the front row on my shoe shelf. Ankle boots is my go-to shoe at the moment. Wearing it with the black skinny appears my legs look longer. Quite impressive, what shoes can do!

A bag, also a must-have that makes an outfit complete. I finally got a Paul’s Boutique in my collection of high-end bags. The bag is literally square! It doesn’t collapse when you put it down, which is a plus. It also has a strap, I can wear it like a crossbody bag and as a handbag. I like that combination, I don’t have to worry about tired hands or shoulders.

I’m in my midst of my exams and writing a new blogpost feels so good. Setting my mind on something else is the perfect way to go on with learning when I hit that publish button!

How is everything going on with you Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Stripes At Home.

This is my first outfit I posted on my blog…This year. The last couple of months I have been so busy with my studies and my home life, that I forgot about myself. I have been since I can remember an emotional eater. I gain weight when I’m feeling stressed, even at some moments during my days, I don’t realise I have been eating a lot during the day. Eating snacks or sandwiches late at night while I’m watching a good movie or show on Netflix has been rooted in my routine. It was the perfect way to escape my daily routines and thoughts.

Since my semester from college is over I have been hitting the gym three times a week and I feel much better than before. If you follow me on Instagram you will notice my gym journey. I feel more energetic and confident in my own body, especially when I lost a couple of kilos. I am still not where I want to be, but I’m still motivated to work on it. Even during my vacay in Morocco.

My mother took these pictures in our home in Oujda, Morocco. I love how the tiles on the wall adds flair into my ootd. Most of the houses in Morocco look like this, a lot of tiles and 1001 nights Moroccan décor. It is so colourful, it matches perfectly with the green and stripes of my outfit. Flared trousers make you look skinnier and vertical stripes makes your legs appear longer. The perfect combination for a shorty like me!

Looking at these pictures made me realise I literally look like a Moroccan flag! The green top and red ring bag are the perfect shades for it. I am so obsessed with the golden details of the bag, red and gold is such a chic combination. It also has the right size for a crossbody bag. I prefer wearing flared trousers with heels. I chose to wear a black block heel sandals with ankle straps. The heel is the right centimetres, it lifts the ends of my trouser just right off the ground.

It feels like it has been forever since I posted my last ootd. I appreciate your thoughts about it! Share with me if I have to post more outfits on my blog.

Beauty Look | So Glamorous.

Loves, I did a new makeup look. It has been a while since I posted my everyday look. This time I chose to do a simple glamorous look, perfect for the upcoming holidays. This look is for all the ladies who prefer spending more time with their loved ones than in front of a mirror.

First, I started with my all-time favourite concealer from Essence. This long-lasting concealer is truly my holy grail when it comes to blemish my impurities. The shade #10 Natural Beige suits my skin tone perfectly! After applying the concealer, I used the next budget topper, BB cream from Alvira. What I like is that it matts without me using a compact powder. For someone with an oily skin like me is this great for an BB cream. It also has an SPF 15 factor, it is moisturizing and gives a healthy-looking look. A slightly dislike is that it doesn’t give a full cover. It doesn’t bother me, because I only use a BB cream to tone down redness and eye fatigue.

The next thing I did is my eyes. I used the middle colour from Makeup Revolution baked eyeshadow palette in the name Pure & Innocent. This colour comes close to my own skin tone. It looks like a natural glow when I applied it and look back at the pictures. I also applied it under my eyebrows. On my brows I used Chella Transparent Defining gel just to restrain it. The eyeliner pen that I used is from Starlooks Pro. This luxe long wear eyeliner has a burgundy shade. I like it, it is a good different than black! On the part where my tear duct is I used PS… Primark Strobe Highlighter in the shade Sand. I used this highlighter instead of my cheekbone on my eyes for an open look. On my eyelashes I used Ace of Face Eyerule #3 Volumizing Curling Mascara +. It has a high-volumash formula. It does curl my eyelashes perfectly. I like the hairbrush that it has. The hairs are small, I don’t make a mess because of it.

Here comes my cheeks part. First I used PS… Primark Blusher in shade Amaretto. I normally use a peach coloured blush. But this coffee brown shade I fell in love with! The pigment is great, it gives a soft look. On my cheekbones I used BeeBee Highlighter powder for a subtle and glamorous look.

On my lips I used MAC cosmetics lustre lipstick in the shade Lady Bug. It has a red-orange tone that I like. I am lately in love with my MAC lipsticks, I use them more than ever! I also think that this colour is perfect for Loves who find red lipstick a bit too much.

What do you think about this look and are you excited for the holidays? I certainly am!

Fashion #OOTD | Summer Floral Dress.

Summer has officially started and this is my first Summer ootd. Summer is one of my favourite season, so imagine my joy while shooting for this outfit Loves. I felt like I was in a fairy-tale because one: it was a while since my last outfit post and two: the location was so beautiful!

Summer equals dresses and I am so not complaining. Dresses are so feminine, cute and adorable! I’m wearing a floral A-line maxi dress with butterfly sleeves. I am not a ‘’print lover’’ but floral prints I can deal with. The dress comes with a twisted belt with black beads and golden details. As you all know me Loves: details make an outfit complete.

While standing in front of my closet, thinking about what to wear for a shoot, came also the thought: which bag should I take with me? I don’t know about you Loves, but I often doubt about what kind of bag I should take with me when I wear a maxi dress. A big one? A tote? I wanted to wear one that suits the dress and since the dress is bohemian I chose a red chic crossbody bag from my collection. I like that the bag has a faux snakeskin at the front with golden details and the deep red colour. A perfect match with the dress!

To keep everything not over the top, I kept my sandals simple. I wore silver coloured flip lop sandals. It feels so amazing to wiggle your toes when you wear flats. Oh, I love Summer!

Share your thoughts with me Loves. Also, can we take a moment by looking at the roses? So beautiful!

Fashion | Head Over (Heels) Shoes!

‘’I have enough shoes’’ said no woman ever! It’s a fact that we ladies always say to ourselves ‘’I don’t have this one yet’’ or ‘’it is on sale’’ while we have many from different styles and colours. Don’t forget the many pairs we have from the same style but in different colours! Shoes are like black little dresses, for every occasion we need/have one. Every season needs a new wardrobe well, the same goes for shoes. Right Loves? Spring equals no-more-fuzzy-socks-in-boots attitude, time to wiggle our toes!

As much I enjoy living in the Netherlands I wish I could change the weather with a blink of an eye. During spring the sun comes behind the clouds with the wind chasing after him. We sometime have a beautiful sunny morning that turns into rain and thunder and makes our hair like cotton candy. Even the weather app can fool you. It would be such a bummer when you are wearing open shoes and the rain pours out of the sky right on top of your freshly nail polished toes. Thank god for Oxford shoes! I fell in love with the pink and the black lacquer one. This is what I meant with same style, different colour. I even walk so comfortable with them. What more can I say!

Now, it is obviously that I am a shoe-a-holic. I am having lately a crush on suede/velvet shoes. I wanted a good black loafer and a cute block heels shoes. Making the decision to put the loafer and sandals into the virtual shopping basket was easy made. You can wear the loaders as slippers just by letting the heel parts down. It reminded me of the fluffy slippers from Gucci. I mostly walk on flat shoes because of college and whenever I run for small errands. Sometimes I feel bad for not wearing heels, quite a waste because I have them collecting dust in my closet. With these I am trying to change that. Now I must wait until summer to wiggle my toes in them.

Beauty Look | Look Book Of 2016.

fotorcreated

I must say; 2016 was a beauty year. I loved experimenting with makeup for beauty looks. Contouring and highlighting was my main goal to get the hang of it and to me, it turned out pretty lovely!

fotorcreated5

I focused also on my eyes. I wanted to get more confident in making smokey eyes, because of my small eyes. I don’t want to look like a panda. Till this day, I am saluting all makeup lovers who uses their whole eyes, from under the eyebrow until the whole moving eyelid as their perfect canvas! Because if I do it, I will look like a clown. I just don’t like the whole eye look on me. On my moving eyelid, I will use any colour but on top of it I limit it only to light colours. I guess you could say that I’m a bit insecure about it, but then again; for everything is a first!

fotorcreated

When it comes to lips I use mostly red to fuchsia to pink shades. Those are my favourites lip colours, I don’t like nude’s colours or Barbie pink.  I have carefully tried to use dark colours such as dark red and I was surprised! I never thought it will suit me.

As I look at my makeup stash I see that I use products that are low budget to high end. From all the variety, I have I stick always with one or two budget toppers from Essence Cosmetics. Their orange packaged mascara and concealer are truly my beauty budget must-haves!

fotorcreated2

fotorcreated3

I think that for my upcoming beauty looks I will be more openminded towards making new looks then before however I don’t want to follow trends that are just a waste of good beauty products. Like, #100 layers’ foundations? Or silicone bra makeup sponge? No thank you!

Which beauty look do you like Loves?

Beauty Look | Contour & Highlight.

img_4551

img_4549

I have a new look for you to see Loves. I am so excited about it, not only I used nice new products I also get more and more great in contouring and highlighting. Even tough after shooting every new beauty look my make-up get rinse off right away just as fast as shooting with my camera and I still enjoy every bit of it! So let me make you excited too.

img_4536

img_4535

I first started with Etos Skin Smoothing Primer to set a base for my L’Oréal Nude Magique Eau De Teint in #100 Porcelain foundation. Before I went further with my foundation I used my all-time favourite Essence Stay All Day 16h Long Lasting Concealer in #10 Natural Beige to blemish my impurities. When I let it for a minute or two to dry I started with contouring. Max&More Contour Stick is such a budget goodie! I contoured my facial parts that makes my face a bit smaller. After contouring I highlighted the facial parts that I wanted to stand out. Yet again I let it alone for a minute before I started to blend it with my H&M Angled Buffer Brush. It is such a fine makeup brush; the bristles are so soft!

img_4543

Now comes my eyes. To set base for eyeshadows I just H&M Fidelity Primer. I did not only use it on my moving eyelid but also under my eyebrow. On the middle of my moving eyelid I used eyeshadow H&M Blueberry Swirl to set a shade. On the inner and outer parts of my eyelid I used Max Factor Colour X-Pert Eyeshadow in shade #7 Vibrant Mauve. To blend it all together I used Max Factor Colour X-Pert Eyeshadow in shade White Satin. I used this shade also under my eyebrows for an open look. For mine under eye waterline I used my new goodie from my Style Tone Box of September Note Luminous Silk Mono Eyeshadow in #10. I wanted to express my eye colour more, purple suits brown very well!

img_4539

img_4553

I know making winged eyeliner can be a struggle to make. If you use a winged eyeliner brush you only have to need a steady hand so, move over sticky tape! The brush that comes with  Max&More Gel Eyeliner is perfect for it. On my lashes I used Ace Of Face Volumizing Curling Mascara Eyerule #3. It makes my eyelashes perfectly black with just one swipe!

img_4554

For the last finishing touches, I used Essence Silky Touch Blush in shade Secret It-Girl #30 on my cheekbones and on my lips I used Max&More Lipstick and lip liner in shade Dark Red #004

I am very happy about the results! How about you Loves?

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?

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 | Little Black Dress.

IMG_3613

Every woman should have a LBD in her closet. This item can be worn at many different occasions. What I like about a black dress it’s timeless, it just never goes out of style. I’m wearing one with long sleeves and a half up turtleneck. I’m lately into the turtlenecks sweaters, tops you name it Loves!

IMG_3628

I went for the minimal chic look, so I combined the LBD with my long grey coat that I recently bought. I was looking for a while for a long coat but I doubted it would suit me because of my length; I’m quite a shorty with just 1.63 metre. Since I took the step to buy one, I’m wearing it daily! With this #OOTD I wore it with my high heeled ankle boots. As I told you before Loves, I’m into detailed items and these boots are one of them. That’s the beauty of heels, it makes your legs look longer and with a long coat they seem endless. I brought the grey colour back with my crossover bag. I like the snakeskin pattern on it a lot. It gives the bag an edgy yet a chic look.

IMG_3630

Writing about details, I braided my hair in two braids starting on the top of my head until the end of my hair to create the illusion that I have long hair, but in fact it is only a little bit over my shoulder length long. I’m still learning to braid my hair tighter and for the first time it turned out pretty fine. Whenever I put my hair out of my face I wear my ear cuff, it gives a playful look and it is not over the top when you wear it only with small earrings. So I wore it with my DRKS earrings that has been gifted to me in a goodie bag since I attended the event.

The rest of my outfit I left simple, even my makeup. Less is truly more!

What do you think about this OOTD Loves?

Beauty Look | Double Up!

IMG_3520

IMG_3522

New title and look! From today all blogpost about a make-up look is going to be called new look instead of beauty. I’m going through some blog changes Loves, you will notice it soon.

Anyway, let’s get started!

IMG_3508

IMG_3516

I did this look when I went to a Moroccan wedding last year. Today I want to show you how I did it. I started first with my favourite concealer from Essence. As you can see it is time for a new one. I applied it on my impurities and under my eyes as an upside down triangle for a natural look. After concealer I used H&M BB Cream Beauty Balm in Rose Porcelain. I am so glad I found this gem! I finally found a good cream that matched my skin tone. It truly covers very well for a BB cream; it also doesn’t feel heavy on my face like a foundation. Since the new beauty department of H&M Beauty I’m falling more and more in love with H&M.

And now my eyes. I always used an eyeliner pen because it is easy to use. This time I tried a Gel Eyeliner from Max & More. It came with an eyeliner brush and I must say I’m impressed. Not only is Max & More a perfect budget brand and cruelty free, it has good make-up! The Gel Eyeliner is waterproof so it stayed perfect all day. On top of the black eyeliner line I used H&M Liquid Eyeliner in Green. Perfect double up! To finish it off I used Maybelline New York Illegal Definition Mascara on my eyelashes, which I forgot to place with the others for pictures. Sorry Loves!

IMG_3524

IMG_3523

On my cheeks I applied MAC Soft & Gentle with the strobing technique. To do this I used a Butterfly Brush by Kruidvat Professional. This brand is from my local drugstore. It is so easy to work with. It feels light in your hand, different then an ordinary brush.

For my lips I used Max & More Lip Liner in Dark Red. I applied all over my lip line. Also this lip pencil came together with the Dark Red Lipstick. Even though it says Dark Red, I expected it would be like the colour Velvet Red but it came out lighter.

What do you think Loves, would you do a double up too?

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 | Shoe-A-Holic!

IMG_3466

IMG_3469

In my previous #ootd I told you Loves I threw a glimpse at my shoes to wear with the outfit I posted. Now I’m giving you a look at my shoe collection! I’m having quite an addiction and collected over the year’s shoes. I have shoes that are more than five years old! Having lots of shoes is an advantage since you can often change with your outfit or even just with your own mood. Shoes come in many colours, shapes and sizes so every woman or man will find their dream pair. Besides clothing sizes changes a lot but feet sizes will always remain the same, right Loves?

Let me start with my black coloured shoes. As you can see, I have many ankle boots. I think it is because I prefer them the most. That’s the beauty of shoes; I have from flat soles to heels and simple to detail. Same goes with my brown coloured shoes. Wearing Uggs can be sometimes a relieve, especially in the winter month!

IMG_3470

IMG_3472

Shoes are for all occasions. I can be so happy with just watching them displayed in my closet just because the heels are too high for wearing it all day. I keep this torture for special day’s hihi…

IMG_3476

IMG_3480

Speaking about occasions, Summer shoes or Moroccan loafers, do I need to say more? And I even did not show you my whole collection of it. Ballerinas, sandals and slippers are during Summer nice to wear. Imagine wiggling your nail polished toes in them!

Which pair do you like Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Black & Grey.

IMG_3358

IMG_3371

I can’t get enough of black and grey…Apparently. I think it’s because it is getting colder and darker every day. As you all know me; I don’t like the seasons autumn and winter. Too rainy, too dark too soon and windy! Especially the weather in the Netherlands changes just with a blink of an eye. Winter means also sweater weather! The only thing that I love. Sometimes I feel the need to snuggle all day with a comfy sweater. And whenever you go home you don’t want to change it you just wear your pjays instead of a skinny hihih…

The turtleneck sweater is made from mohair and is comfy oversized. It will keep me warm during these cold days. This time I wore a black waxed skinny. What I like about this skinny is it always stays black no matter how many times you wash it and it feels not to tight on my body like denim.

I roamed through many clothes racks, and still I did not find a black coat that I like. One day my lovely sister left hers at home and I didn’t give it back. If you read this sweetheart…Thank you! Hihi..

IMG_3355

When I threw a glimpse at my shoes (read: collection) I didn’t know what to wear or to choose. But I did know that I wanted something to wear that makes this outfit not from comfy to sloppy. Eventually it became one of my favourite black boots. I like the golden stud’s details on it. With the pointy nose and small heels it looks chic yet edgy.

Writing about details; I wore my bohemian necklace that I truly love! Since it’s a comfy look I chose my grey shopper. This bag is typical a throw-anything-you-want-in-it-bag. But the suede faux snakeskin look makes it not look sloppy.

Fashion #OOTD | Faux Fur In January.

IMG_1416

My first OOTD of 2016! It took me a while because I’m having troubles with my camera. I’m not happy how it turns out whenever I put them in my laptop. Too dark! Too blurry! I really want a new one!

Black skinny jeans; I never can get enough of them. This versatile garment you will always find it in my closet and I believe I’m not the only one. What I like about this skinny jean is the fabric. It contains cotton but also elastane so I can move freely during my day.

IMG_1432

With the cold in the Netherlands I’m glad I found my holy grail in turtle necks sweaters and that for someone who used to hate them! I’m kind of enjoying the grey colour. This shade of grey in particularly. This time I chose for a half up turtle neck to wear because one; for a change and two I like wearing sweaters in this season!

IMG_1439

To stay warm I wore my faux fur gilet too. I love how edgy it looks. To keep my outfit monochrome I wore my black ankle boots with it and a black crossover bag. As you all know me Loves I like good accessories. My Daniel Wellington watch is a classic because of the black wrist belt it matches perfectly with my silver bracelets. Even though the details on my crossover bag are golden I kept my jewellery black and silver because why not? Nobody is perfect and certainly not me when it comes to outfits.

‘’Hello from the other side I must have called a thousand times to tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done, but when I call you never seem to be home, Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried.’’

Yes, I’m guilty of listening to Adele’s songs too. But this is not what this blogpost is about. It’s about my rose gold beauty. Hello! I want to share with you Loves an update from my other blogpost about Fashion Goodies Right In Your Pocket.

It was time for a change. I enjoyed all of them and I still enjoy the app All Womenstalk. This app gives you a tour through a woman’s world. From tips; tricks; mindfulness; relationships to recipes you can find it all. Again, I still enjoy the H&M app. I’m even an H&M Club member! Every euro you spend on purchases you collect points for discount vouchers, special offers and exclusive events! Amazing right? Because of it I was invited to the H&M beauty department launch. And you can do it too! Just download the app and subscribe to the H&M Club. Your welcome gift will be 50 points and a 10% discount!

IMG_3022

IMG_3023

Style.com and Fashion Network made place for Vogue Runway. I love this app! I can watch all the fashion shows from all over the world with just a slide away. Sitting front row with just my pyjamas on and a messy bun oh so lovely!

I have a subscription on the Glamour Magazine since 2012 and with the app I can take the magazine everywhere. Perfect for when I’m on the road. This app has nothing to do with fashion but sure hell with life. Clue the app to register your cycle. It calculates your period, your moods, your fertile window and even answers questions like what is PMS? Is my cycle normal? I really recommend this app to Loves who are trying to regulate their periods and trying to get pregnant. As for me it is a great calendar!

I also add Flipagram & Pomelo. Flipagram to make video’s from pictures. I asked you Loves in mine previous blogpost what your thoughts are about me starting a YouTube channel. I am still thinking about it but using Flipagram for my Instagram for sharing my make-up looks is a good start. Speaking about Instagram. I’m even thinking to start using a filter on it to make my Instagram account more professional. Pomelo is a great app to work with.

Further then this all I use standard apps for blogging. Like WordPress and Facebook page. When it comes to social media apps I use Google+ Bloglovin’ Twitter Snapchat (SaidaSnaps) and Instagram like most of you.

This is it Loves! If you know any apps that are great to use don’t hesitate to let me know.

Beauty Review | French Look Rose.

IMG_2717

IMG_2718

IMG_2719

I am surprised! My local grocery store sells make-up. The place where I thought they sell only groceries has a small beauty display. At first they only sold a small amount of beauty products like perfume, cotton swabs and pads, deodorant and bath/shower products. I used them once and I felt that these products are too harsh for my skin and hair. But I’m truly impressed by their make-up!

These products are very low budget but worth your money. I tried this French manicure nail polish from the brand Cien the brand from Lidl. When I tried the first try of painting my nails; the first thing that came on my mind is: this is not so bad at all!

The first try is perfectly fine if you want that natural French manicure look. I let it dry for a bit and put a second layer on my nails because I wanted a full coverage instead of see a through look, if you know what I mean?

I’m happy with the results! Do you? I’m going to keep Cien in my mind for probably a low budget look VS high-end look which is written on my beauty list.

To be continued Loves!

I did a new make-up look for you Loves. Finally! The look I made is perfect for the upcoming holidays. It is not too heavy, which is nice during your day when you spend time with friends and family celebrating!

First I used Etos Mattifying Primer. This primer mattifies the skin lengthy and absorbs sebum, perfectly suited for oily skin. The primer fades imperfections and provides a levelling effect. What I love about this primer is it is free of preservatives and perfumes and it has vitamin E in it. Whoop! After the primer I used Essence Stay All Day Concealer #10 Natural Beige. This concealer is truly my all-time favourite. It matches my skin tone perfectly! I applied it under my eyes as an upside down triangle to blemish my dark circles. Applying it as an upside down triangle gives more a natural look. Then I started with the last part of my face make-up. I used Max Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation in Beige Linen #50 such a mouth full! It does feel weightless and it is oil free. Again, perfect for my skin type! On the apple of my cheeks I used Primark Shimmer Blush. The pen broke so I poured it in a clean Nivea facial cream jar. Handy right?

On my eyes I used H&M 4 Eyeshadow Palette in particularly the purple and light beige colours. I like shimmery make-up more than matt ones. It sparkles beautifully in the light! I like the effect that it gives. Back to my eye make-up; first I applied the beige eyeshadow colour on the inside of my moving eyelid until the middle of my eyelid then I applied the purple eyeshadow colour on the middle of my eyelid until the outside of my eye. Then I applied Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen for a wing. On my eyelashes I used Essence Maximum Definition Volume Mascara. Yet again my all-time favourite! On the corner of my eyes I used Douglas Jumbo Shadow Pen for a highlight.

Last but not least I used Calvin Klein Lipstick in the colour Desire. I forgot to put it with my flat lay but click here for the swatch!

While I was shooting for this look I had to work asap! The weather changes so fast in the Netherlands and I use natural light for my pictures when I finished the rain started to poor and dark clouds filled up the sky. The lipstick colour that I used reminded me of Purple Rain from Prince. What an imagination!

What do you think of this look Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Trench Coat & Emerald Green.

IMG_2786

With the latest collections in every store you can see that 50 shades of green are hip and happening right now and I must say; such a beautiful colour! I can find myself in the green colour fashion trend. Especially in emerald green.

It is all about the details and I love the cut out with lace on my top. It gives that bohemian look and I like the bohemian style! Chic and bohemian is a perfect combination when you want to style an outfit. So I like my trench coat. Every lady should have one in her closet. It just never goes out of style! I searched a lot to find the one I truly like; imagine how happy I was when I finally found it!

When it comes to college I need a big bag to carry my books and laptop with me. This shopper is perfect for it. It is very spacious, everything fits in it. Literally; phone and laptop chargers, make-up bag, notebook and agenda. Amazing right?

My pointy nose shoe I just can’t get enough of it. The striking heels are just lovely to watch.

Beauty Review | Pink Nudes.

IMG_2449

As I said in my Touch Of Gold make-up look I’ve been wandering through my make-up stash. Since I started blogging I feel I purchase a lot of new beauty goodies to use for reviews and new looks. I have to put a hold on myself and my wallet and use the goodies I already have. I don’t want to throw the half away just because it is expired. That would be a waste right Loves?

I am already impressed by the new beauty department of H&M and over the clothing even more. The pigment of this eyeshadow palette is just perfect. Even the white one can you see very well. The light soft pink surprised me too. I thought you would not see the difference between white but the glow of the light soft pink is quite good to see. Imagine when you combine it with the other colours for a beautiful look.

Pink, I’m thinking i’m growing a new obsession on that colour…

What do you think about this eyeshadow palette Loves?

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?

Fashion #OOTD | Colourful Autumn.

IMG_2463

IMG_2461

The only thing I like about autumn is the warmth that it brings. Candles flicker romantic, fuzzy socks and pumpkin spiced sweets. I don’t know about you Loves but I automatically change my wardrobe and outfits into autumn proof.

I like the dark red colour of my blazer and the details on the sleeve. It makes me feel retro! I wore it with my peplum top I had hidden for a while in my closet. It didn’t fit me back then. If you follow me on Instagram you would know I’m taking more care of my body. I started to hit the gym and eat healthier, I lost already 4 kilos! I’m happy and determined to lose more weight. Thumbs up for me!

IMG_2467

IMG_2471

IMG_2478

Back into my OOTD. The denim jean I wore is a cigar fit. I like the way how it fits on my body. It is slightly different from skinny jeans because of the leg opening. I just feel more comfy in it. Very feminine with my peplum top! The buttons on the back and the long part of the top is just a surprise whenever you see the back.

Shoes-bag-top match! I love my shoes, the details on it is edgy, perfect when I combined it with my chic bucket bag. I toned down with jewellery. I wore only my pearl dots and an ear cuff. Chic X Edgy!

Autumn. The season I’d rather not have. Especially in the Netherlands, the weather is a mess! The sun was shining, fifteen minutes later it rained. Quite daunting if you want to shoot for outfits!

I have to make the best of it, so I wore my pink sweater with the blue blouse I wore for this summer OOTD. Combining summer clothing with cardigans or sweaters works perfectly fine. Because the weather changes a lot I wore my black sailor blazer with it. The buttons has anchors on it and I love this detail!

This autumn you will see a lot of knee boots, I bought mine last autumn so I’m happy I already had them. I wore it with a denim jean, warm and comfy! Perfect for those college days to look feminine and fashionable. This style I truly love!

Statement necklaces are an item that is still coming back. They don’t call them statement necklaces for a reason, so many of them to choose from! I kept mine simple because I just like simple and elegant.

I added a new bag into my collection. Just like shoes it’s a habit I have.

What do think about this OOTD Loves?

I was invited to the exclusive H&M beauty event. Such a beautiful experience to attend too! Let me introduce you to the new beauty department of H&M, I promise you, you’ll love it!

H&M is well known from their varied collections, they have applied it to their beauty department too. From skincare to make-up brushes you’ll find it all!

Many colours dominate the shelves, a truly colour Walhalla. What I like about the beauty goodies is they are well pigmented and it stays long when you apply it. Perfect for my up-coming autumn make-up looks! Besides they are make-up candy’s to your eyes. The chic packaging will stand beautiful on your vanity.

I wandered around and took the opportunity to look for an eyebrow kit. The Espresso brow kit caught my eye. I’m going to use it for new looks this autumn. Since I already wanted to try contouring, these blend brushes came in handy. They feel so soft and look professional on my stand. The quality is good too, they don’t lose any hair.

Do you know the new department of H&M too?

Fashion #OOTD | White Tee & Denim Wash.

IMG_2203

IMG_2238

IMG_2239

Dressing simple can be so satisfying. I would parade around in just a tee and denim jean every second of the year.

As you all know Loves, I’m on holiday to Morocco and if you ever visited this beautiful country you would know how the weather feels. As much I adore Summer and would stay outside for the whole day, it is just not possible with this kind off heat in Morocco. Sometimes it is 45 degrees outside! I’m not even able to open my eyes because of the sun that shines so bright.

Then came white tees! They are perfect for this kind off heat. Because it’s white and the fabric is cotton you won’t ‘’absorb’’ the sunbeams. I wore with it a high waist denim jean. You either love or hate this kind of jeans, especially because it is denim washed. Normally I won’t wear this kind of denim but this time I said to myself why not?

The first time I wore these slippers I felt a bit manly, to be honest. I would not buy them in the first place if I didn’t know I would walk in them like I’m walking barefoot. Because of the shape of the sole you can walk on paths that are not from tarmac. Perfect for long walks in Morocco!

To finish my OOTD, I kept my accessories simple too. I love the edginess of my clutch, the classiness of my watch and the details of my glasses!

What do you think about it Loves?

IMG_2176

I’m in my hometown! In fact these pictures are taken in front of my home. I live in Oujda (pronounce: wousda). The place to be every Summer!

I must say I felt a little bit uncomfortable while shooting for this OOTD. Not only was the lens of the camera focused on me but also a lot of eyes. And because of it I had many uncomfortable looking pictures and a lot of tripping; but hea, all for the perfect shot!

I’m wearing a loose fit pants. It’s such a dream come true wearing one during Summer, especially in Morocco. When I wore them I felt like princess Jasmine from Aladdin. Ok, I’m exaggerating but you know what I mean hihi…

I’m lately combining colours with other colours. I’ve noticed that I’m crawling out of my shell; normally you won’t see me in colourful pieces. To still keep the tone down I wore a navy blue top to accentuate the pink. To me it would be a mix match of colours if I combine bright colours with bright colours.

The ones who know me, knows that I pledge for good accessories. When I saw these cobalt blue plateau shoes I had to have it! The colour is just beautiful and because of the plateau soles they walk terrific!

I finished it off with arm candy and a clutch. What can I say about them? Except they make my OOTD complete!

Fashion #OOTD | Floral Printed Kimono.

IMG_1761

It was such a beautiful day when I shot for this outfit! A typical all-the-odds-were- with-you-day. The sun and the wind helped me to set me in the mood to strike many poses, even the location gave me a ‘’fashion shooting vibe’’ I enjoyed every bit of it!

IMG_1768

IMG_1775

Not only I felt in my element shooting for this outfit, it also was a family day. I went on a pick nick with my lovely mother, sister and her little bunny. I feel really happy during these moments and honestly whenever you feel like this, it shows on the pictures too!

IMG_1781

IMG_1776

For this look I chose to be simple in wearing a pants and a top because of the floral kimono. I always wanted to have one but I found them quite expensive so I’m glad I stumbled on this one!

Black trousers are a blessing in disguise, I find it quite annoying when the black colour fades away whenever you wash it. With this faux leather washed look on the skinny I experience this problem less, hallelujah! I wore a white top with it because one it was hot that day and two black on black is always good but to change it once in a while is good too!

I like the shoes I’m wearing. The thick heel helps a lot while you walk and the bag is cute to wear with this floral printed kimono!

How would you wear a kimono Loves?

Beauty Review | Pretty Blue.

IMG_1607

I’m still having that lightly vibe. When I painted my nails, I thought about that summer blue sky! Beautiful colour.

This nail polish from Maybelline New York lasts up to 7 days! I had to try it, I hate having flaked nails after a while. And I must say it does what it says! I think it’s because it has calcium, iron and silica in it. Maybelline Forever Strong #610 Ceramic Blue is truly a pearl on your nails.

Who hasn’t waved their hands to dry your nails? With this Quick Dry Spray from H&M it is no longer needed! You just wait 60 seconds and spray it on your nails and you’re done. Saves you the crazy looks from your little brothers or anyone else hihi…

Fashion #OOTD | Just Simply Light.

IMG_1595

Do you know the feeling; whenever the sun starts to shine and the temperature starts raising all you want to do is sit down and lay back? Only wearing on your body jeans a top and sneakers? That day was today.

Since I wrote Beached Waved Hair & Sneakers, I’m starting to like wearing sneakers! I’m glad they come in many various forms and colours. These simple ones, I have them for a long time, so long that I forgot I had them (oops…). They are still good to go, I remembered why I had them in the first place, they are so comfy!

I combined the jeans before. This time I wore it with a loose fit top. Whenever you walk it moves with you. You’ll get that feeling when you spin around in your favourite jaunty dress or skirt. I know I exaggerate, but you know what I mean hihi…

A white bag is indispensable in your wardrobe! It’s like a black blazer; you can wear, or in this case take it wherever you go! The combining possibilities are perfect too. What I like about the bag is the little holes details on it. To make it more fabulous I added a pearl necklace piece. It was broken and I did not want to throw it away.

On a simple outfit belongs simple jewellery. I fell in love with this Jade Stone necklace from Lana’s Sieraden. Same goes with silver jewellery, it just never goes out of style!

Beauty Look | Monroe.

IMG_1522

”I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”-Marilyn Monroe

IMG_1539
IMG_1538
IMG_1527
For this make-up look I got inspired by Marilyn Monroe signature look. The red lips and winged eyeliner. What I like about this look, it is a classic one! It just never goes wrong.

First I used the Etos Skin Smoothing Primer. This transparent primer is a gift from heaven! This miracle wonder is a good basic before putting your concealer and foundation on. This was my next step. The concealer I used is Essence Stay Natural Concealer. I applied it under my eyes as an upside down triangle for a more natural look. When I finished with the concealer I used Delia Cosmetics Mineral Velvet Skin Long Lasting Matt Foundation. I like Matt foundations! It gives you more a natural look. To avoid that ‘’make-up face’’ I recommend a matt one. When I finish with my face, I let it be for a minute before I begin with my eyes.

For my eyes I used Essence Superfine Eyeliner. What I like about this eyeliner is that you just need to have a steady hand. You just draw the line and you already have the winged part. And that’s because of the shape of the liner. How amazing is that? For my lashes I used Essence Plump! No Clumps Volume Mascara. It really does not give you clumps! On my waterline I used Douglas Jumbo Shadow Pen. I must say that I’m a bit disappointed about this one. I had to apply it many times before I even could see the colour. Maybe it’s because it should be used on your eyelid instead of your waterline. Even tough, for the prize and Douglas is a well know store, is to me a disadvantage.

On my lips I used Essence Lip liner #14 Femme Fatale. This is the first time I use a lip liner. I did not want lips like Kylie Jenner (finally she admits she used lip fillers! As we didn’t know hihi) so I applied it on the arches of my upper lip and on my under lip I applied it at the end of my mount up to a centimetre toward the centre of my lips. Then I used H&M Lip Pen Million Dollar Lips to finish it off.

On my cheeks bones I applied Etos High Lighting Illuminizer to highlight my cheekbones, it gives you an open look! To finish it off I used Chanel Blush #44 Narcisse, just a bit for that blushing look!

Fashion #OOTD | In Black We Trust.

Who doesn’t like wearing black every day? After blue, the colour black comes close to my heart.

I wore this jumpsuit before on an outfit post I liked it then and I like it now. What I love about jumpsuits is that black ones make them classic and chic. Prints, graphic jumpsuits are bohemian and edgy! Many combinations which fashionista doesn’t like that?

Did I tell you about my striking heels? I’m falling in love with them every time I wear them. Sorry, for this Carrie Bradshaw moment. I got carried away hihi..

For this outfit I choose for a chic hairdo. I put my hair in a low bun. Donuts for your hair come in handy. It was a while since I used one. It got forgotten so when I remembered I wanted something else then wearing my hair down.

To finish this look I decided to wear simple but yet chic arm candy.

Beauty Review | You Make Me Wanna’ Blush!

IMG_1372 IMG_1373 IMG_1376 IMG_1377

The sun shines, many colourful pops of clothing on the streets, everybody looks at their best…And a blush comes in handy!

Beauty comes is many colours and sizes and we should embrace it! Cute blushing cheeks are not only adorable but also trending this summer.

In my make-up routine I use a blush regularly. It adds the complete touch of my look. In the winter season I mostly prefer a sun kissed brown blush for a healthy look. In the spring and summer season pink and peach coloured blushes are my favourite!

Many Loves ask me what the best way is to apply a blush. I always say: there are many ways and I’m not a professional make-up artist. I’m just a girl who likes make-up! The way I do it is from the apples of your cheeks until the half way of the end of my cheekbones. Blush should be used for an adorable blushing not like stripes until your ears like you are in the army! Such a blush don’t.

What is your best way?

Fashion #OOTD | Boyish Girl.

IMG_1347 IMG_1323 IMG_1325 IMG_1348

For this look I went a bit out of my comfort zone. This is not my everyday outfit but Fashion is supposed to be stepping out of your comfort zone, so I gave it a try.

I like it! Not only is the tomboy look chic, but also comfortable. Combining it with sweet colours as pink and white makes this look still feminine. The day I shot for this outfit was a sunny day but the wind was cold so I kept my oversized coat on.

This Charlie Chaplin look is common worn on the fashion streets and will be seen more, and I don’t mind! I like to wear my ‘’tap shoes’’ this is how I call them. The salmon light pink colour looks amazing with the brown shoe sole.

I think I have a bit of an obsession on the colour pink. I could not resist leaving the bag in the store. The golden detail makes the bag chic with an edgy twist. This kind of bag is very popular in the Netherlands. Mostly because it’s seen on many fashionistas all over the world!

Would you wear this look? And how would you wear it?

I can be so happy if I wear an denim skinny jeans that has a perfect fit! With my pear shaped figure it’s quite hard to find one.

I love my jaunty top! It gives this outfit a girly yet chic look. When I shoot for this outfit, it was a beautiful day. The weather was just right for wearing an cardigan. The great thing about this cardigan is that it has a butterfly fit. A bit tight on the arms and the rest loose. Perfect for staying warm yet fashionable to wear!

As you all know me, I like good accessories on an outfit. The edgy touch of zippers on the FVH clutch gives this bag a stalwart look. Perfect combination with the striking heels! Not only I can find myself in to the point shoe trend, but also with sassy detailed shoes!

Do like this outfit as much as I do?

Fashion #OOTD | Bohemian Twist.

IMG_1199 IMG_1209

I adore the Bohemian look! That summer vibes/hippie look makes me think about the laid back summer days!

With spring and summer just right on the corner I automatically reach the bright coloured clothing in my closet. The red lace top, popped out so I chose it. I combined it with high waisted denim jeans. Instant tummy tuck! Those jeans are a blessing!

The twist of this outfit is the heels. Not only it makes me taller, (for a shorty) it gives it a feminine look! As I already said, I adore the Bohemian look and to finish it off I chose my H&M fringe bag.
The lace top is already an eye catcher so I kept my earrings simple, just a red pearl dot and I’m good to go besides it is totally fine to play with accessories. That effect gave the pink and glitter beagle arm candy!

I wore heels with it but imagine it with cute sandals and a head turban!

Have you ever been in love on an item you saw in a magazine? I was it on a poncho from H&M. I wanted to buy it on online but guess what? Sold out for WEEKS! Happy I was when I found this one out of the blue!

Who is not familiar with those comfy days but yet you want to look fashionable Saturday was such a day to me. I went shopping with my mum, sister and her little girl a real ladies day!

It’s been a while since I put the shoes on I wore that day. Like many others I keep in a closet. Thank god you can wear them even when years passes by. Clothes sizes changes, shoes sizes never!

Do you agree?

Beauty Look | Summer Glow!

Last days in the Netherlands are cold, rainy and at some places even snowy. Winter is coming and I don’t like it. This season is not my favourite one, so I was slightly happy to see the sun shining between the clouds!

For this make-up look I went for the summer glow. First I used the W7 Hide It concealer stick to blemish my impurities (acne scars.) After that I used mine liquid foundation brush to apply L’Oreal infallible 24H stay fresh foundation. I’m looking for a foundation that has a good coverage so this sample came in handy and I must say it works pretty fine!

I did not want to have a ‘’foundation face’’ so I used Essence All About Matt! Fixing compact powder to blemish the oil from my face. I always wait a couple minutes before I apply my eye make-up. I do this so that my face can have a ‘’minute of rest’’.

For my eyes I used the eyeliner Catrice Cosmetics Calligraphy. It’s perfect for wings because it has a pencil brush. Nice to work with! On my eye waterline I applied the Essence 2in1 Kajal Pencil. Using a white pencil really gives you an open look which is a good cover up for baggy eyes!

When I finished my eyes I used my H&M blush brush to apply Etos Bronzing Powder. I love this powder because it does not have one colour but many (light pink, white, light brown & pink.) it matches with mine skin tone perfectly.

For the last finishing touch I used Etos Highlighting Illuminizer #301 beneath my eyebrows, eyelids and cheekbones for the summer glow. I kept my lips simple because my eyes were already the eye catchers! Maybelline Water Shine Gloss #504/110 Baby Pink suits perfect!

Fashion – Tip | Statement Alert.

IMG_0986 IMG_0987 IMG_0988 IMG_0990

I’m obsessed with the trend statement necklaces! I’m seeing them everywhere, from sophisticated to chic to truly eye catchers! I love the way it sparkles your outfit especially when you wear it under the collar of a blouse.

Statement necklaces, the name says it, it really does give you a statement. You can wear it on a school/college day or a chic one at the office. Don’t forget the holidays, just for the last finishing touch on your Christmas outfit.

I really like the one I wore with the outfit Colorblock Statement. Cute for summer, an eye catcher for other days! The second one I like is the simple gold/bordeaux one it’s just cute!

Of course I like all my statement necklaces, every time I want to wear one is a true surprise which one I want to wear!

Tell me your thoughts Loves!

Fashion #OOTD | Before December.

IMG_0959 IMG_0955

Last Saturday I got inspired from Mila Kunis in the 70s Show! I wanted a different outfit post to show you all. I mostly wear skinny jeans but seeing the latest trends I of course had to keep up.

Wearing a boot cut jeans is a blessing for short people! It makes your legs look longer besides that it makes you look feminine.I went for natural colors because that’s what Mila mostly wears on the show so I thought why not. It suits also perfect for fall.

I saw many fashion bloggers wearing hats and it looked so good on them! So I added one more to mine collection of head pieces and I love it!

Have a great last month Loves!

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!

To be honest…I don’t like the season Autumn. The weathers change instantly in the Netherlands. I always bring my umbrella with me, if I don’t my hair is going to look like an cotton candy…!

But…New season means new wardrobe! And that moi ja’dore! I like my fluffy gilet from H&M. I’m wearing it on top of my leather jacket to keep me warm. Don’t you have a leather jacket, no worries it looks good on a warm sweather. Make sure you wear one as long as the gilet to prevent short and long layers. Personally I don’t like that.

What do you think of my new bag? I love it! Do I need to say more? Who knows me know that I like details. The golden details of my outfit fits very well together. With gold you just never could go wrong!

Fashion #OOTD | Colorblock Statement.

IMG_0769 IMG_0779 IMG_0781

I really like this outfit! I feel very femine in it. As you all know me…Blue, blue, blue lover overhere! Navy blue is such a classic color, it is always good like black.

In my first post I told that I really like eye catchers as accessories. It could be anything. The reason why I love them is that even tough you put something on like a plain white shirt and a denim jeans, when you combine it with an eye catcher you don’t need more!

I never thought that colorblocking would be something for me because I thought it would not look good. I was wrong.

How would you combine this maxi skirt? Please do show me…!

 

Dutch Model Event Report. | A New World!

IMG_0232 IMG_0236 IMG_0302 IMG_0245 IMG_0365 IMG_0455 IMG_0404 IMG_0498 I attended the Dutch Model Event as you can see. It’s an event that visitors and future models can attend to get casted for fashion shows. That can be for haute couture and commercial. You also can get casted for television as in commercials and acting roles.

Ofcourse I was very excited! Like it was a new world for the future models it was for me too! I saw beautiful creations on the catwalk! I really liked the collection of Dutch designer Addy van den Krommenacker! This collection was ready to wear which is very nice to see from a designer. The last picture is his creations. http://www.addyvandenkrommenacker.com

I also liked Qalanjo. It’s a African/Somali clothing line that is modernized in traditional clothing. It was very beautiful to see the link between high fashion and culture. They did it very well! http://www.qalanjofashion.com
