ENOUGH IS ENOUGH... #StopSocialShaming



Comments taken from Social Media 
 
As a fashion and beauty blogger, videos like 'The Power Of Makeup' from NikkieTutorials or the 'You Look Disgusting' video from Em Ford really got my attention. But I am sure everyone has seen those videos already, and I am glad these influencers are asking us, everyone on social media, to wake up and realize how f*cked up society is nowadays, when it comes to either makeup shaming, body shaming or online bullying. The world wide web is the most amazing thing, but it is also the place where the most bizarre and unhealthy challenges and trends start (Kylie Jenner Lip challenge anyone? Collarbone challenge ring any bells?) and it is the place where people nowadays feel like they can shamelessly make known their every opinion and broadcast what they love or hate. Especially what they hate.

EVENT | C&A AW15 SHOWROOM

Last Wednesday the C&A AW15 presentation took place in Amsterdam. It was an event that Linden & Barbosa, my internship placement, organised and I helped with the event! Just like with the Sarenza event, it is nice to kind of have a double role. I was there to greet the guests, to accompany them to the people from C&A and to just chat with guests and bloggers! But as a blogger myself, I also wanted take photos and have a good look at the new collection. Keep on reading to find out about the new Autmn/Winter collection♥

TOP 5 SHOES | COMFORTABLY ON TREND

As much as I am a high heels lover, I have barely worn any during my internship in Amsterdam. The hectic traffic, small tiles and train rails across the streets make it pretty much impossible to wear my favorite heels in Holland's capital city. I did not really know what shoes the wear, since flat shoes make me look even shorter. But after 6 months of travelling back and forth to Amsterdam, I  consider myself a pro when it comes to super comfortable, flat shoes that are right on trend! Because hey, whatever us girls wear, we certainly want to be rocking the hottest trends right? Here's my top 5!

OUTFIT | CLOUDS



In my last outfit post I said it was probably the one of the last outfit posts in Amsterdam. I am gonna stay 2 weeks longer at internship to work, so there might be more oufit photos in Amsterdam to come! The only person who takes my photos here in Amsterdam is my interncolleague Anne, who actually rocks at taking my photos! I love these outfit pics in particular :) Today I was at Dam Square all by myself, just taking photos of  the beautiful buildings (I'll show you in a post later!!) and a tourist came up to me asking if he should take a picture with me in it! How nice! I thought  these two were nice for an outfit post, so here it is;)

GEL NAILS AT HOME WITH MADAM GLAM | SOAK OFF GEL



Today I have something very cool to show you lovelies: a soak off gel nail set from Madam Glam! I was very excited to try this product because I haven’t tried gel nails before, let alone do it myself! Madam Glam Soak-Off gel polish is a 3 step gel polish, so you will need the base, color and top gels. I got the cutest baby pink color ever called Angel Wings♥ According to Madam Glam you can use any UV or LED lamp to cure; cure times are 2 minutes for UV and 30 seconds for LED. I got an UV lamp with my set so my cure time was 30 seconds. The lamp switches off after 30 seconds so you'll cure the gel for the right amount of time!

HAIR | THE ONLY OIL THAT WILL REALLY WORK FOR YOUR HAIR


Since I am wearing my hair extensions almost every day, they get frizzy after a while. My natural hair is also  very dry from using styling products, so both my natural hair as my extensions can use a good oil treatment. I read this fun fact once and then searched the internet for more information... Wanna know the only truly effective oil for smoother, shinier and silkier hair... ?

MEET DARCY♥


Everybody meet Darcy! I already posted some photos of our newest family member on Instagram, but I thought I should share some on the blog too! She's a Border Collie and she's exactly 9 weeks old today. She's been with us for 4 days now and she's doing so well! It's so funny to see how different she is compared to our other dog Yentl, who is now 11 years old. Yentl was very hesistant at first and Darcy is such an adventure seeker! She wants to play all the time, especially with Yentl. They are still getting used to each other, but other than that, she's an amazing puppy and I absolutely adore her♥

INSTA OUTFIT | SKY HIGH



Time for a new Instagram outfit! Actually, the outfit itself is not on Instagram yet, but the first one is! I don't wear these Primark killer heels often enough. I love them! But unlike most of my heels, they are not comfortable;) I still decided to wear them, as I always take my super handy foldable ballerina's with me in case I really want to switch shoes:) The bag is also from Primark, isn't it cute?? It's just big enough for my essentials. Do you like how I combined this outfit?

MAKE UP | VIDEO TUTORIAL | EYEBROWS ON FLEEK


VIDEO TUTORIAL | EYEBROWS ON FLEEK
Hi all! I've been getting nice comments on my eyebrows lately, probably ever since I changed up my eyebrow routine. Eyebrows on fleek are some of the comments I get nowadays, along with  the question to do a tutorial on them. So here it is! I did something new with this video; a voice over instead of me talking. Works so much better for me! Tell me if you lilke this too?
