Tag Tuesday // Makeup Shopping Tag

As I was brainstorming ideas for my blog and Youtube channel over the summer, I thought I wanted to bring a bit of fun back to my content. That is why I wanted to start a Tuesday series where once a month I do a different tag. This month I have chosen to do the…

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…

Italy beauty haul: Sephora, Kiko & more

Haul time! Last week I showed you what I packed when I went to Rome, today I’m showing you the bits I brought home. Be aware: I shopped to my heart’s content. Why? Because Italy has Sephora, which means instant access to brands I can only dream of getting my hands on. So that is…

London 2013 shoplog: Topshop, Primark, Illamasqua, etc.

If there is one thing I knew I wanted to do it was shop. The main goal of the trip was to reward myself for finishing my Master’s degree and the crappy situation at my job in the weeks leading up to it. So I was all set on thoroughly enjoying myself and just not…

Update on me – May 2012

The month of May is nearly over! At the beginning of the month I gave you an overview of what I was going to do and now I’d like to reflect on the things I’ve done this month and also my general well-being. This month promised to be busy and it was. So busy that…

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 2012: Day 3

Day 3 of my trip would be devoted to more walking and plenty of shopping. I hit up Oxford Street and Soho and ticked off plenty from my fashion wish list to make a shoplog once I get back. So keep your eyes peeled for that but now let me just tell you what I…

Fashion Wish List

So many cool trends have been happening lately and that is why my fashion wishlist has been growing quite a bit. Because of my London trip I’ve refrained from buying too many new things as I want to see what is available at stores that I cannot get to on a regular basis. I hope…

Shoplog: Zara, Bershka, MAC & Urban Decay

Yesterday I took another trip to The Hague to see my allergy doctor. This time not only to get my shot, but also to find out whether I have an intolerance for gluten. Luckily I don’t and these monthly trips usually entail hitting up some stores that I cannot get to on a regular basis…

Last round of sale shopping

Sale usually goes in cycles. Reductions go down more and more as the sale progresses and usually more styles (read: out of season styles, last items) will be added the closer you get to the end of the sale period. So when I had to run some errands yesterday, I not only got what I…

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…

Shoplog: H&M, The Body Shop, Amazon & Vila

The past couple of weeks I got a couple of trinkets and I thought I’d share. So it’s time for another blog on my most recent purchases. It isn’t anything too crazy, but still worth sharing methinks. It’s a mixture of clothes, accessories, some cosmetics (no make up though!) and a few CDs. Here it…

Beauty shoplog with MAC, Lush, nail polish and more

I got a few beauty related trinkets too over the past few weeks. Some of this I bought on a whim. Other things I bought because I had been wanting it for a long time. Here they are: Nail polish: NYC In A New York Color Minute Chelsea, NYC In A New York Color Minute…

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…

Fall break vacation

So today is the first day of my fall break. Here’s what I’ll be up to the next few days. Because well, I can’t have vacation and sit around and do nothing. I will be doing plenty of sitting around though and to balance that out I have also listed some activities. Cooking: I will…

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…

Haul: Inglot, Zara & other make up, cosmetics and random stuff

I desperately needed a ton of things this time round, as I was running out of necessary products girls need every once in a while (usually once a month, ahem). I also wanted to go to Amsterdam to pay the MAC Pro store a visit to buy the final eyeshadows for my palette and thus…

My day in Amsterdam: shoplog H&M, MAC, Lush

Yesterday me and my mom went to Amsterdam to do some shopping. We saw plenty of shops, but both didn’t buy a gazillion things. My mom really wanted a new bag, which she found at the first store we entered. The only places I wanted to go to were MAC & Lush. So we weren’t…

Primark Haul + some nail polish

Since it’s vacation and I still had some money left from my birthday, I decided it was time for some shopping. It had been a while since I last visited Primark, so I decided to go there. I got up early because shopping at Primark means you need a strategy in order to battle the…

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…

London Shopping Haul

By now you have read several times that I did some major shopping while I was in London and I have been promising a haul post since day one. Here are the things I bought: Doctor Marten’s 1460 in Cherry Red Smooth Finally! I did nick them the first time I wore them. Flowery 60s…

Shopping Haul: Primark, H&M & HEMA

Yesterday I posted pics of a new pair of shoes. But there’s more. As planned I went on a shopping spree at Primark, H&M and a few other random places. Here’s what I brought home: Simple black lace A-line dress. (Primark) Not to sure about the rhine stone detail, but those can be taken off…

Shopping…

I did some online & off line shopping again and got some pretty neat things. First of all, there’s a few things I can scratch from my wish list. My Amazon order came in yesterday and I got two Disney DVDs to add to my collection! Here’s what I got: Left column: 1. A Bit…

My favorite places to shop online

Shopping is fun. Whether online or offline. Online shopping especially fun as you can just stay home and don’t have to battle any crowds. Here are the places I frequent the most: Amazon: I love the UK version of Amazon. For several reasons. A) they have everything regarding books and DVDs. B) they have fast…

Wish list of the moment

I make wish lists. All the time. There isn’t a month that goes by without my having a wish list. In fact, I keep multiple ones. I always have a few items in my ‘items to watch’ list on Ebay and there’s always a few things that I save in my shopping bag on Amazon,…

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…

More shopping…

Sale is full on here in Holland and so I have been checking out a few stores from time to time to see if they have anything interesting. So far, I hadn’t found anything on sale that interested me, until yesterday. On top of that, my H&M order from last week arrived yesterday as well…

Shopping haul

If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I spent yesterday shopping in Amsterdam. I had a friend play tag along and I sort of expected things to run well into the evening which is why I didn’t have time to post any of this last night. Yesterday was a good day too. I got…

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…

Blog Challenge Day 11: My hobbies

Hobbies. Everyone has plenty of them. Below I will list my main ones. 1.) Dancing This is definitely my biggest hobby. This is what I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember. According to my mom, I took my first dance class when I was six. She enrolled me in dance classes, because…

How to shop till you drop – On a budget

Some of you may be aware of the fact that I shop. A lot. I know I do. Apart from having the money for it (finally), I also tend to seek out deals, go to cheaper stores and buy most of my stuff on sale. I used to be a student who had to make…
