Winter & Sales Fashion Haul

It is February, most of the winter sales are over and in the past few months I bought some fashion items. Some of them were on sale, some of them were not, but I was really enjoying some of the items I found and so I figured I would share them with you. I have…

Black Friday Haul

We’re nearing Christmas steadily but I still hadn’t shown you my Black Friday Haul. Because I simply hadn’t received all my orders yet. I finally got my last order in yesterday and so I sat down instantly and filmed my haul. And I have a bit of a surprise for you at the end so…

Catrice & Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 Collection Update

It is time for an update. An update on the Catrice and Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 collection. I tried both of these when they came out over the summer, but that was of course just a first impression. By now I have tried everything a bit more and while full reviews may be pending, I…

Fall Fashion Haul

Today’s video is a fall fashion haul! I have been gathering items since the summer time and today I am showing you everything I got in a collective haul. There is a bit of everything here. I got mainly bottoms and jeans though as that is where I really found some good items. I also…

New York Haul

As expected, after my recent New York trip, I also want to show you what I purchased. So today’s video is a New York haul. In case you were curious in seeing the makeuppy bits that I picked up during my recent trip, then just click on through, because that is what today’s video is…

Eyeshadow Palette haul

You know I love eyeshadow palettes, but what do I actually end up buying? I have been creating some regular content talking about new eyeshadow palette releases. In those videos I discuss what I find interesting enough to pick up and what I want to pass up on. So I thought it would be fun…

Catrice & Essence Haul Update

It’s been a few weeks since I showed you the new producs that Catrice and Essence brought out for spring/ summer 2019. I first showed you the Catrice products in early February as they are always first. A few weeks later, Essence released their update and I posted my video on the new products in…

Spring Fashion Haul

Now that spring is here, it is time to update those wardrobes for the nice weather. It’s been a while since I last did a clothing haul. I last did one in September when I updated my closet for the fall time. I bought a few bits here and there over the past few months…

London Haul

I asked you last Sunday whether you would like me to show you what I bought in London. I tried filming this as part of my vlog, but felt it made the vlog too long. So I decided to film a dedicated haul when I got home. This won’t be a haul where I bought…

Skincare haul

As you may know, I am looking to amp up my skincare routine this year. So when I bought a few bits to get started and stocked up on some of my skincare favorites, I also made a bit of a wish list of stuff I would like to try. That’s what today’s video is…

Book Haul 2019

Okay calm down: no I didn’t buy all these books in one go. No these are not all the books I bought in 2019 so far. These are all the books I bought in the past year. I last did a book haul in February 2018 and I thought it would be cool to keep…

Catrice & Essence haul update

In July & September I tried some new Essence & Catrice products in two different first impression videos. I always do these when these two affordable brands change up their makeup lines for the new season, which happens twice a year. So far I have gotten around to reviewing a few of the items I…

Fall 2018 fashion haul

I’m excited! Fall is here and that means there is lots of fashion out there to match the new season. Fall is my favorite season for shopping. Not only because I can wear these items nearly all year, but also because I love the colors. Fall is also the season where I usually splurge: it’s…

Summer sale haul (try on)

I finally got lucky! Remember how in my previous haul, I mentioned not being able to find anything? Well the sales were very very kind to me (and I, or my bank account, to them) and found lots of great stuff often at great prices too. So I decided to film a try on haul…

London haul

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I was in London two weeks ago. You will not have noticed much on here as I spent some time making sure I had enough material online. I went to London to do a spot of traveling and being a tourist visiting museums and…

Spring 2018 try on haul

Today’s video is a spring/ summer fashion try on haul. I purchased a few items to update my wardrobe for the upcoming season and I thought I’d show them to you. I am going to talk you through all the items I got and show them on in the mean time too. Hope you enjoy…

Winter& Sale Haul

It is January, which means we’re in the dead of winter and it is sale time. That is why I thought I would show you what I got in recent months to update my wardrobe for the colder season as well as what I picked up on sale.   Winter & sale haul

Homeware haul

Now that I have been living in my new place for about a month, I have tons of things to show you that I bought for my new home. This haul will focus on the smaller, more accessory style bits that I bought to bring some life to this space. It is now nearly finished:…

Fall fashion update | Coat & Sweater Edit

And we’re back with a new video! It’s a little wonky and not perfect yet, because I’m afraid to overdo it on the computer now. So this was gloriously edited on MovieMaker. So I apologize for the quality beforehand, because it isn’t grand. Nevertheless, I managed to be back with a new video today and…

Fall transitional haul & lookbook

It’s fall time! And I’ve been buying a few pieces here and there to update my wardrobe. Some of these items however still came from the summer sales, but then autumn hit us full force. So I decided to style up the items anyway and show you how you can easily transition your cropped tops…

Summer sale haul

As a bit of a treat-yourself-moment, I decided to get some fashion bits in the summer sale to celebrate my own birthday. Summer sales are my favorite as I feel you get the best deals. So I usually go ham. And I went ham this year too. Shoes were my main vice and I also…

US beauty haul

You may or may not have seen on my social media accounts that I spend some time the US last week. I went on a work trip to visit some students and liaise with the Disney internship programme that we work closely with for them to gain experience in the theme park industry. Part of…

The printed top haul

Me one sunny Easter weekend: let’s see if I can find a great white tee as I decluttered mine. And then this happened. Whoopsie! But there are so many great t-shirts and tops out there right now! I also decluttered lots of my tops and t-shirts as I find they typically last 1 or 2…

Food haul

I’ve really been trying to be more diligent about my eating patterns again. After having dabbled in low carbing, and going completely wheat free, things improved greatly and I found that I could eat anything I want again without too much discomfort. But that did mean that I went a little overboard. So late last…

Spring haul & lookbook

In the past few weeks I’ve bought a few tidbits to update my wardrobe for spring. I didn’t get too many items, but I thought I’d show you these nonetheless. To make the video a bit more informative and entertaining, I will be showing a full lookbook with 6 outfits that I have created using…

Winter, spring & sale fashion haul

I have another haul for you! It is the first haul of 2017 and quite possibly one of the last ones. As I mentioned before, 2017 will be the year I am looking to buy a house so that means more saving and less spending. I went on one last blow out shopping session in…

Collective book haul

I bought some books! Yep just before the end of the year I’ve decided to treat myself to an online book order. I actually completed my 50 book challenge last week and figured I needed to treat myself to celebrate the occasion. Just to make it truly worth your while, I decided to lump in…

First impression: HEMA make up haul

While I was on the hunt for cough drops and other items that would help ease my sore throat last Saturday, I decided to stop by HEMA. It is one of my favorite Dutch stores and they have been branching out! There are now HEMA stores in London, so if you find one near you:…

A Christmas-y nail polish haul

Honestly, I hadn’t planned on buying any polish. When seeing these collections being released online, I did not experience my usual: OOOH I NEED THAT IN MY LIFE! moment. Instead, I felt a little lackluster and mwah about it all. And then I saw them in stores. With my own eyes. And then I thought:…

England beauty shoplog

Two weeks ago I hopped on a plane to visit my friend Alison in England and one thing we did when I was there was shop. I do not dare counting the number of Boots and Superdrugs we went into, myself being the main instigator. Of course I had to figure out the UK drugstore…

Drugstore nail polish haul

Spring is around the corner and in the past few weeks I have found myself stocking up on some spring appropriate nail polishes. They are all drugstore brand polishes and range from as little as 2 euros a pop to 5.99. You will notice that I am favoring baby blues this time round as well…

Spring/ summer 2015 Catrice haul

The new Catrice line is here! I was at my drugstore this week and lo and behold I walked into the display filled with brand new products for Spring/ Summer 2015. I simply bought everything that caught my eye and I will be showing you everything I purchased two ways: there’s a video AND there…

Tea haul

Time for tea. Apart from a nice alliteration, the colder weather has instigated my generous intake of tea. Add a nice discount at my local health store and a trip to London (= a trip to the Twinings store) and you have the right mixture for a nicely sized tea haul. Still a haul, but…

Amsterdam shoplog: Inglot, MAC, River Island, H&M etc

Yesterday I went shopping in Amsterdam. I hadn’t been there in months. The last time I was there at all was November and I last went shopping there almost 6 months ago. Since yesterday would be the last semi-decent day till who knows when I decided to head out do some shopping. It’s not a…

Shoplog: a bit over the taupe

First of all: Happy Spring everyone! Today marks the official start of spring so yay for that! Over here the weather is getting a bit nicer and so I’m stoked on wearing all of the spring trends. One trend you surely will not have missed is the fact that this time around bright colors are…

London Shoplog # 2: Shoes & Fashion

A few days ago I already showed you some of the stuff I bought during my London trip. That post featured books, CDs, make up, beauty products and accessories. But that wasn’t all I got as I also bought a bunch of clothes and yes, as a shoe freak I also got some shoes. So…

Shoplog: Lush, MAC, Sephora, Zara & more

It’s been a while since I last went shopping. With a new laptop and flights and hotels being booked so I can do some more fun things throughout the year, there wasn’t much money left for a full blow out shopping spree. However, last Thursday I found myself in The Hague for my doctor’s appointment…

H&M Sale Shopping!

Ah it’s that time again. The actual winter sale has started and I couldn’t be happier. H&M has some pretty good things in their sale right now and I just had to get a few things. Well, a few… ahem… Luckily it’s sale and I actually bought a few of these items for less than…

Video: Collective shopping haul

I thought I’d try something different again and instead of bringing you a haul post in pictures, it’s now in video. And you can watch it in HD. Only thing is that for some reason my upload got scrunched and I don’t know why. It will probably be some setting I used when publishing the…

Shopping haul: Vila, Pieces, Zara, H&M, Six

As you may have read on Twitter, I went shopping on Friday afternoon. Since I found a few other trinkets over the weekend, I decided to post everything in a blog. This is the clothing part of my haul. The beauty part will be up tomorrow! Cable knit sweater (Vila) OMG! This sweater is the…

H&M Haul

Since sale season has started I have permitted myself a few buys. I already posted a blog a few weeks ago showing some buys, but I had also put in an order with H&M. Here’s what I ordered from their website: Sunglasses! I really wanted a pair of funky brown sunglasses. These were only 2.95…

I cracked and bought…

As I wrote I’ve been a bad bad girl. I had told myself I couldn’t buy anything that I didn’t need for all of June & July. However, me being me, I knew that would be a stretch. One month, yes, I managed just fine, but come end of June and sale starting everywhere I…

Collective Shopping Haul

In the past couple of weeks, I did some more shopping, online and offline. Here’s what I bought: Black Cardigan – Only My new favorite cardigan! It’s long, woolen and warm. It’s great at warming me up in the morning since it’s still cold. I’ve been wearing this every single day since I got it…

Haul post: MAC, Benefit, Lush, Zara & Bershka

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I went on a bit of a shopping spree yesterday. I had to go to The Hague to visit my allergy doctor for another shot to get rid of my hayfever and I desperately wanted to go to MAC. Since Leiden doesn’t have one, I decided…

Mini Sephora Haul

For those of you following me on Twitter will have read that I missed two trains tonight and opted for a stop at Sephora and Starbucks as a result. Sephora now has an offer that you get a 25% discount on all make up and I had spotted a nail polish I wanted to get…

Blog Challenge Day 16: Last thing(s) you bought

For this one, I’ve decided to make a little video again: a shopping haul vid. I thought it would be easier to do this, then to take pics of all of the stuff I bought. It’s my first video, so be nice, lolz. The lighting is horrible! Any ideas on how to fix that? My…
