BEING HONEST WITH YOU

January 31, 2015


Hi! I just wanted to say, yes I did it again, my blogger layout has changed back to my old one. Not the previous one, nope, the one that got my blog to grow and that reflected me. So, I just wanted to let you guys know that my blog still exists, it's just the theme that changed and I just felt like this theme made me happy, made me want to grow more as a blogger.

Lately I've noticed that my posts lacked quality. Not quantity, because I've been posting like crazy and I've had so much inspiration, but I want to spend more time writing a post, editing photos and just overall I want to put more passion and love in one single post. If you're trying to post as much as possible, you start ignoring the quality and I don't want that to happen. I'm also saving up for a new and better camera. I feel like my camera is getting a bit old and photographing is a huge part of my blog and my life so an upgrade is necessary.

So, less posts, more quality. It's a promise I'm making to you. I don't know what your opinion is on my blog post quality lately, but I would love to know your honest judgement as criticism is a source of development. I don't even know if that makes sense but you probably know what I'm talking about. Thanks for your support! XX

CIATE NAILS

January 29, 2015


I'm a sucker for cute nailpolishes like this one from Ciaté, actually everything cute is a problem for my wallet. I like to buy adorable stuff just to look at and then I'm too afraid to use it because it might just end up not looking cute anymore. Yes, my brain does really work like that. 

I got this -brown-dark purple-I honestly don't know- colour about a month ago in Namur and I've been loving it ever since. I mentioned it in a short haul I did back then, you might (not) have seen it. The nailpolish stays on my nails for about a week or so until I find it doesn't look so pretty anymore. When I say that this lasts for about a week, I mean it lasts really long. I always get creative and start crafting after applying nailpolish and everyone knows what happens then. I ruin it and it looks messy and awful and just not good. Conclusion: this nailpolish is my favorite right now and no this post isn't sponsored. I just effing love Ciaté nailpolishes, blimey. XX



PINKS AND PURPLES

January 27, 2015


In all honesty, these are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn in my whole entire life. They literally embrace my body and if you've never worn pants like these, you just have to try them on sometime. I wore a pink turtleneck sweater (Memory Lane) with the pants (New Look) to keep me warm, it's so fluffy, I love it! My new pink coat (Memory Lane) is just so stunning and -ugh- someone please tell me that it's real because I still can't believe I actually found a pink coat. After months of looking for a piece like that, it feels unreal to have finally found one. Haha :) My adorable shoes are from New Look and I hope you're all having a lovely day! XX

 

THE PINK COAT

January 26, 2015


The sales keep surprising me with stunning clothing and cheap prices. I found this pink coat (Memory Lane) last Sunday and I think it's so pretty with the little bow on the back and the colour is just too adorable for words. I paired it with a basic white shirt , tucked that into a pair of high waist jeans (Topshop) and I also wore my new favourite sandals from New Look which you've seen in a previous post. What do you think of this girly and classic look? XX

SOMETHING ABOUT NEW SHOES

January 25, 2015

I'm not denying it, I've got too many shoes and almost all of them are not so mainstream but I can't help myself when it comes to my shoe addiction (that's probably why it's called an addiction). I bumped into these stunning shoes a few days ago and as it were sales, and these were only €7 instead of €50 I was like, damn I can't leave these beauties here. So, I took them home and my god, how stunning are they? I can't wait to wear them an unforgivable lot. (Did I just say that? Okay.) I got them from New Look and geez, they are amazing, they even walk super comfortable. Yes, I'm in love with a pair of shoes. Call me too materialistic but hey, I can't help it. :) XX


SNOW GREY

January 24, 2015


Sorry if I look like a constipated dog in the photos, but I was literally freezing and my camera battery was dying. Haha, I just had to say that (please excuse my weirdness). Anyway, I have finally finished the exams after about a month or so and I've got a whole week to write articles for you guys and take a billion photos. I was wearing my pink smiley boots (Doc Martens) because they've got an anti-slip sole and it was snowing (yay!). I also wore a grey/purple/silver/i don't know velvet skirt (Topshop) and a grey sweater (H&M) to keep me warm. The coat (Esprit) is not very flattering but it keeps me warm. :) XX




LOVING THE TARTAN

January 21, 2015


I actually didn't want to post these photos, because they were a little too dark for my liking, but with a lot of editing and adapting the colours, I think they look alright (I hope). I was wearing a black tartan cardigan (New Look) with a black faux leather shirt (H&M) and black jeans (Only). The photo quality will be better in the next outfit post, I promise. :)




FLUFFY RICOTTA PANCAKES

January 20, 2015


Do you ever get bored of eating bread for lunch, or is it just me? I decided to bake these delicious ricotta pancakes instead of eating a slice of bread with nutella and honestly, they are so yummy! I promised myself to eat healthier, but when I made these I simply couldn't hold back. So I ate them all and I'm not even guilty for doing so. If you want to bake these as well, check this recipe out. :) Have a great day, loves! XX

 
 


HEAVEN IN A BOTTLE

January 19, 2015


Hi! I thought I'd write another article about my -ever- favorite perfume. It's the cheapest one in my collection but I love it the most. (Even my brother thinks it smells amazing, big thumbs up! haha) It's a perfume from H&M and I think it was only €6. It basically smells like coconut, vanilla and heaven in a bottle. When I was eating soup with coconut milk the other day while wearing this perfume, I swear I was sent straight to heaven *joking*. If you ever come across a perfume that smells like this one, please let me know in your comment, because I'm pretty sure I'll cry when it's empty. What's your absolute favourite scent? 


LIGHT SHADES

January 16, 2015


Whenever I don't feel like wearing bright and eye-catching lipstick, but I want to put something on them, I always grab one of these lighter shades. They're perfect the wear on a school day or just a casual day out. 

The first lipstick is from YSL, it's a really light orange shade with some pink undertones and it moinsturises your lips. Most lipsticks dry out my lips, but this one doesn't. :)
The second one is from Hema, those who have been following my blog for a while probably know about my love and obsession for this brand haha :) This lippie is a nude/pink shade, so pretty!
Last but not least, my Yves Rocher lipstick. I love wearing this as a lip balm or just on a day where I'm wearing a nude make-up look. It gives your lips a healhty glow and moisturises as well. What do you like to wear as a lip shade on a casual day out?


LOVING THE COLLAR

January 14, 2015

One of the 'trends' I've always loved are printed collars underneath a warm sweater. It gives your outfit that casual yet dressed-up look and somehow it reminds me of England. Strange? Haha, anyway I love it and I used to wear collars underneath a sweater almost everyday last year. 
I also got the rings I'm wearing together with the copper ones that I showed you in a previous post. They look a lot like the copper ones, but I just love the colour-blocking that's going on. It's a silver, golden and copper ring that suits every outfit. Thanks for reading! XX

COPPER RINGS

January 12, 2015


I got a gift card from my aunt for my birthday and seeing there were sales in the shop, I decided to pick up some accessories as a girl can never have too many, right? I think these look amazing with white nailpolish and they would suit an all white outfit perfectly. What do you think of these copper rings?

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

January 11, 2015

I've been redecorating and changing my room quite often recently and I thought I'd post a few details. I'm still not completely happy with how my room looks right now, but that'll hopefully change soon. :) I kind of want to excuse myself for the lack of outfit posts, I wanted to change that in 2015 but you know how it goes with those New Year's resolutions. I actually promised myself not to make any, but I did want to put more effort in my blog so it would grow and get better. I guess I'm lacking self-confidence lately and posting pictures online when you're not happy with yourself might not be the best idea, I think. I will be posting more outfits soon, when I've found the time and I feel okay doing so. I hope you'll like the photos though. XX




BAKERY HEAVEN

January 5, 2015


These delicious chocolate chip cookies are perfect for a Sunday afternoon or a lazy evening. There's nothing better than the smell of freshly baked cookies in your home. I just baked these and they are honestly so yummy! Find the recipe here. Baking tip: listen to Disney music while making the cookies. Have a jolly time while baking (and eating) these! XX
