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’’!

I don’t know about you Loves, but I’m a ‘’list person.’’ From making plans for college to running small errands I write lists. Even when I go shopping you will find a list in my wallet with items that I need. If I stick to it? That is another story. I feel sometimes even lost when I don’t have a list with me. Thank god for technology! I can visit my blog on my phone now for a quick reminder. So, let me share with you my shopping guide about items I’m wishing about and maybe you will find your dream item too.
Jo Malone is well known for their beautiful candles. I sometimes forget they have a wide assortment of colognes, bath and body products. The bottles and packages are already keepers, imagine the smell and when you use it. Such luxury!
Lip glosses you can’t get enough of them, I’m speaking for myself now. Just look at the tube! This lip gloss from Dior is such a classic, it is available in many colours but I have set my eyes on the girly pink. Talking about pink, how cute is this feather skirt from SuperTrash? Since we are in the middle of the wedding season: combining this cute skirt with a pastel coloured top and edgy heels and you are good to go! Staying with SuperTrash: not only their clothes are dreamy to wear but their accessories are pretty to look at too. I’m a sucker for notebooks and their black ones are so chic. Perfect for college

Bags! My guilty pleasure. I found these beauties at MAHI and both are made from soft leather which means they are built to last. This is what I’m looking for in a college bag! I carry my laptop and books with other stuff that I basically don’t need everywhere I go. I love bags that are fashionable and functional. Who hasn’t had his bag strap broken just because of the heaviness? And do you remember those ugly bags that you are forced to use because otherwise you cannot bring all your books with you to study at home. Don’t forget carrying two bags! Kudos to MAHI. By the way Loves, you can personalize your bag with embroidery that they stitch onto the bag or accessories of your choice. Also, good to know: MAHI donates $1.50 from every purchased bag to clean water causes. Hello, win-win situation!
As you know me Loves: I like edgy details. I fell head over anchor about this black bracelet from Lavastoney. The combination of black and silver is so classic! I like timeless items, they stay fashionable for a long time. Because of this you think more about the quality when you buy it because you can enjoy longer from it! Also, a classic: Chanel. I’m having lately an obsession on this brand. Chanel is to me the black dress for fashion and the contour for beauty. The cap of the brush is going to protect the hairs of the brush which is perfect for when you need a quick touch up on the go!
Which item are you wishing about Loves?
