MAKEUP | NATURAL & GLOWY

natural no makeup make up look strobing

False lashes are my best friend, everyone knows I love me some falsies! But sometimes, I also really like the look of very bare eyes, natural glowy skin and a nude lip color. The thing is, a no makeup look always requires a lot of make up! I did this look a while ago and so many people commented how much they liked it, so I decided to share the products I used to get this natural, but still pretty glammy look... Keep on reading!

MADDEN GIRL BY STEVE MADDEN SANDALS♥

STEVE MADDEN GIRL SANDALS

When it comes to shoes, I rarely wear sandals. I only had one pair of (also new) silver  sandals from H&M when I ordered these Madden Girl bling bling sandals! I love me some bling and the fact that these had multicolored rhinestones on them made me want to add them to my shoe collection;) I've also been loving these simple but cute elastic bracelets with colored little stones in them, which I thought were a perfect match with my new sandals! I guess I will be wearing these with an all black outfit and a hot pink leather bag!

BONDI SANDS | PERFECT SUMMER TAN

 Bondi Sands selftan mousse!

I can say I am pretty much a selftan pro right now, having tried over 10 brands for the past few years. I know what to look for in a good selftanner, so I was more than happy to try out a new selftanner as I was so happy with my first product from Captain Tan. This time I got a much darker color and oooh yeaah I am so excited to show you the results of this amazing Bondi Sands selftan mousse.

HAIR | HOW TO CLIP IN LUXURY FOR PRINCESS HAIR EXTENSIONS

 HOW TO CLIP IN EXTENSIONS

Hey all! I thought I should do a video on how I clip in my Luxury for Princess hair extensions, as I often get questions about them. A lot of girls seem to think it takes forever to attach the  extensions to your hair, but that's not the case at all :) It takes me up to 3 minutes, so you can easily do it every morning if you don't want to sleep with your extensions in. A tip from me: you can sleep with your extensions in, but the best thing is to braid your hair when  you go to sleep, so they don't tangle up. Plus, you wake up with some nice beachy waves!

WHY BLOGGING IS HARD WORK

  

Ever since I quit my job, I feel like I have to explain myself a lot when people ask what I do besides my study. When I say I earn my money with my blog, people seem to think there's no way writing on the internet can be taken that seriously. I am not a full time blogger nor do I have to pay rent and bills as I still live at home but my blog has definitely become a great side job that pays everything I need;) I don't want to make a secret of that, because hey, don't we all know bloggers nowadays are able to make this their fulltime and sometimes very well paid job? I will never forget how someone once said blogging is the easiest money ever made because of the seemingly small amount of effort it required.. Well, let me explain why people who say "Blogging? That is not a real job...That's just a hobby" can be totally wrong.

TIPS TO SPEND THE SUMMER HOLIDAY AT HOME



Ever since I my  internship ended I've had more time at home and also more time to work on my blog. It is such a drastic difference, going from a great internship that had me away from home  65 hours a week, to no plans at all this summer holiday! I've got time to catch up on some extra sleep, but other than that, I've found that I'm doing things I usually never did because I did not have the time.. I am sure this will get me through the summer holiday that I will just spend at home (or at least: in Holland) with friends and family.. So keep on reading to find out my tips to survive the summer holiday at home!

INSTA OUTFIT | MICHAEL KORS LOVE

 

Sometimes I have a case of 'Oh, I like this outfit but I can't do outfit photos right now' so a blogger's gotta do what a blogger's gotta do: take them myself! I believe you can take just as good outfit photos with an iPhone as with a professional camera, as long as the background is basic and the light is good! I hope you guys agree on that, because I've been posting quite a lot of Instagram Outfits already. Funny fact is, this look is not even on Instagram.. But it's scheduled for tomorrow, haha :)

HAIR TIP: REVERSED SHAMPOOING FOR VOLUMINOUS HAIR


Perhaps you have already heard of the newest hair trend that promises more volume: "Reverse Shampooing"! I have tried it since I got my new set of hair extensions. I wanted to keep them straight and therefore also wear my natural hair straight. But when I would normally wash my hair, blowdry and then straighten it, it would fall flat around my face and instantly looking greasy and  heavy! Little did I know, it had everything to do with the way I washed my hair!
