Essence Spring/ Summer 2020

As long as we had to wait for the new Catrice products, that’s how quickly we got the new Essence products. There aren’t that many, but what is there had me excited. There is a new range of blushes, a tinted primer, a new loose powder, single eyeshadows, a full range of liquid lipsticks and…

Spring to Summer Transitional Lookbook

Wardrobe Declutter

Spring means cleaning time and over the spring season I definitely gave my wardrobe a good declutter. I found clothes with holes, stuff I hadn’t worn in a decade and just so much stuff I know I will no longer wear for whatever reason. I tend to do one of these once a year and…

Styling gingham trousers

During last year’s summer sales, I purchased a pair of gingham trousers from ZARA. I thought it would be a perfect piece for spring, since it has a cute ruffle to the side of the legs. Now that it is spring, I figured it would be time to style it up. These are 5 outfits…

For spring I love some muted, pastel colors. And as you can see, I like a very particular type of muted pastels. If it’s a muted sea foam green, dove grey or pastel blue, I’m pretty much game. For this blog post I have selected 6 nail polishes: 3 high end, 3 drugstore that I…

Fashion wishlist

There are so many cool pieces floating around now, but I’m trying to be a good girl and not spend all my money as I’m trying to save up for a house this year. That’s why I am currently on a pretty much all out fashion no buy, which is why I can only lust…

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…

Hayfever update

It feels like it has been ages since I wrote an update on how I’ve been doing with my hayfever. By now it’s been almost 2 years since I’ve been getting shots to battle my hayfever. This form of immunotherapy should¬† wipe away my hayfever in the course of 3 – 5 years. The first…

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…

Bring on Spring Time!

I think February may be my least favorite month of the year. Why? Well, it’s not really winter, but the weather is still dreary, murky and cold. At the same time you know that you’re only a few weeks away from spring! Which means: the sun peeking in from time to time, the start of…
