NEW | ECSTASY STATEMENT NECKLACE HAPPINESS BOUTIQUE



Did you guys know I am a total sucker for major bling? Yeah, you probably did! Big statement necklaces can never go out of style if you ask me, as some outfits just need one! They can spice up a simple outfit instantly:)  I got a gorgeous statement necklace from the German webshop Happiness Boutique

HAIR | JADE THIRLWALL'S "MINNIE MOUSE" BUNS


Hi all! As you all probably know, I am a huge Little Mix fan! Funny thing is, a lot of people on Instagram and Youtube have told me I look like Jade Thirlwall from the girl band. Which is a major compliment of course! I happen to LOVE her cute hair do that she rocked while promoting  Little Mix' new single Black Magic. The hair looked like Minnie Mouse ears brought to life in the form of hair, haha:) I decided to give the look a go, and after lots of comments about a tutorial I decided to do it again and film it for you guys...

REVIEW | LADIVAL SUN PROTECTION FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

REVIEW | LADIVAL SUN PROTECTION FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Hi there lovelies! As I turned 23 last week, it makes me think more about getting 'older' as I explained in that blogpost;) Since I am always aware of aging and skin care, it seemed great timing to share this review of Ladival sun protection today! The weather's been pretty nice here in Holland and there have been days were I was able to chill out in the garden and work on my tan already. I really love maintaining my tan, but nothing annoys me more than  a sunburnt, red skin. So therefore, I make sure I always use a good sunscreen!

NEW | STATEMENT SUNNIES


I've been obsessed with sunglasses for such a long time, I've literally got over 35 pairs of sunnies. However, I still managed to score 3 amazing models that I did not have in my collection yet. For my Dutch readers, you're gonna love this webshop called ikhebeenbril.nl. The system is so cool! Your first pair of sunnies is 15 euros, your second one 11 and your third one will be 9 euros! Every time you order 3 sunglasses, you will only pay 30 euros. I love the concept of each pair of sunglasses getting cheaper as you add more to your basket. But enough talking writing, I am sure you're curious to see my new sunnies??

OUTFIT | BLACK TRENCHCOAT

 BLACK TRENCHCOAT
Hi all! Time for the first outfit post as a 23-year old! :P Thank you for all the sweet birthday messages! I went to internship for a few hours on my bday, then before heading home I decided to hop into the Primark store and I thought 'it's my party and I'll shop if I want to!'... So yeah, I bought some random items and this black trenchcoat, because it seemed like the perfect coat for the spring/summer days here in Holland.

INSTA OUTFIT | MICHAEL KORS BAG

Usually when I've got something new and I really love it, first thing I do is share it on my blog! Since I initally wanted to take proper outfit photos with my new obsession, I waited a while. But then I realized taking outfit photos on a nice location is pretty hard because I am either at internship or on to go. So I took some basic outfit photos today, which I like to call Insta outfits, since I often share them on Instagram before I post them on my blog....

TIPS & TRICKS | UNIQUE BLOGGING TIPS THAT WORK


I've recently shared my Blogging tips that improved my blog and today I am going to share some new, unique tips that actually work for me. I emphasize unique, because I have come across so many blog posts about 'how to grow your audience' or 'how to become a succesful blogger' and they all seem to have the exact same tips that most bloggers are already using anyways. Using the right keywords, naming your photos and using alt descriptions, renaming your URL and spamming leaving comments on other blogs with your links are pretty common tips, if you ask me. I've found other ways that will lead to more traffic to your blog, and most importantly: readers that are actually interested and will stay around!

THE INSTAGRAM CONFESSIONS

Hi all! How are you doing? I've had quite a busy week, so I haven't been able to show you my new outfit photos with my newest beauty: my Michael Kors bag via Sarenza.nl. I do have some fun Instagram photos to show you, and also some shots that were meant to go on Instagram but never made it, haha ;) The photo above is from just before I went to a Livberation Day party on 5 May. The weather was terrible that day, but we decided to go in the late afternoon and evening, so our timing was just right! My hair looked like a mess afterwards, but at least I've still got this pic to show you how nice it looked before I went out;)

PERSONAL | BEHIND THE SCENES AT INTERNSHIP



For a very long time, I've dreamed of an amazing and exciting PR internship in Amsterdam. A place where I could learn as much as possible about PR, communications, brands, media relationships and most of all: work on my goals and learn about the 'working life'.  At PR and communications office Linden & Barbosa, I've found the internship I was looking for! Since I enjoy it so much and frequently share pics on social media, I decided to also share some peeks behind the scenes here on my blog.

LIP AUGMENTATION | BEFORE & AFTER LIP FILLERS

LIP AUGMENTATION | BEFORE & AFTER LIP FILLERS

Hi all! As  you may have read on my blog yesterday or seen on my Instagram, I got my lips done yesterday! This is not something that came out of the blue, I've been thinking about this for years. So after doing some research before finally doing it yesterday, I realized there are not many real stories on how the procedure is done, before-after shots, pro's and cons etc. That is why I would like to share my experience with you!
