Pre summer wish list ♡

First I need to apologize for the lack of updates on my blog. The last few months were very busy and emotional.  I had finals and a lot of other stuff going on. But most of it is over now and I passed my exams, which means high school is over for me! So here’s a new post!

Just like we all do I’ve been looking for clothes and accessories on the Internet.  I decided to not buy things online anymore because I’ve never bought something I really wanted to keep. So I decided to look for things online and buy them in the real world;)
Next week I’m going to Amsterdam with my friends so I’m looking for some inspiration for all the summer things I want to buy.

The first thing I want and need so badly is a lip scrub.
This morning I was watching one of Tanya Burs’ haul videos and she showed the Lush lip scrub, it looked very cute and I really need something that fixes my dry lips. Lip balm just doesn’t work for me anymore. On the Lush website they have three different types of the scrub: Mint Julips, Popcorn and the one in the photo is Bubblegum.
So this is definitely on my wihs list!
I will buy the Bubblegum scrub this month and I will let you know what I think of it!

Second there’s something I actually already have but I need more colors; Nail polish!
I think these are very pretty summer colors and I already bought the second (very pretty, light kind of neon blue pastel) and the last one which is very pretty light pink.
This Hema long lasting nailpolish edition is very good and not at all expensive.
It’s only 2,50 euro p!

My most recent love: John Lennon sunglasses.
I don’t know which brand these are but I’m really looking for these sunglasses with round glasses.
So if anyone knows a brand (affordable please) please let me know in a comment!

Two weeks ago I was watching a 1975 video and Matty Healy wore a kimono. This was the moment I realised I need a kimono.
So I will buy one this month. It really is a trend this year. I think it just looks so cute and fashionable.
And I might be weird but Matty Healy is one of my fashion inspirations, because his style is perfect!

I’ve been looking for a body scrub for a while now and on super drug I found this Cheeky body scrub. I don’t know this brand but all their products look very cute and I really want to try it sometime!
It’s not the cheapest scrub you’ll find on super drug. This Cheeky Bright as a Button scrub costs 10 pounds.

So this was my mini pre summer wish list!
I hope you liked it;)

Kendall for Marc Jacobs

image

Kendall Jenner has finally made it to high fashion! Last week she walked her first show for Marc Jacobs during New York fashion week.
Kendall wore a completely sheer top, a cropped pair of brown pants and a wig. Her eyebrows were bleached which made her look like a total different person.

Kendalls look has been criticised a lot in the media the past few days but I think she totally rocked it. She is definitely born to be a runaway model!

Sophistication, woolen coats and unfussy cashmere

Finally! My first 2014 fashion week post is a fact! 🙂

I haven’t been very active lately, but with finals coming up I just can’t find the time to write a decent post.

But a new year also means the start of fashion week, which has given me a reason to write something again.

I’ve been in bed all week and it gave me some time to watch the NYFW shows. I have seen some amazing collections and I just needed to share them with you guys.


I’ll start with the last show I’ve seen. That was Serge Azrias’ Joie show.

I think this fall collection is very pretty and simple. I’ve got a slight obsession with anything black, I just love simple black outfits and I think that’s what this collection’s about. It’s all very sophisticated and simple, things you can wear to work or school. There were plenty of camel and cream, substantial knits and unfussy cashmere. In one word: Casual.

My favourite piece of the collection:

 

 The next collection is the Sass & Bide collection


Although I loved almost everything I saw in this show, I don’t know if I’d wear it myself.
You need amazing legs to wear any piece of the collection. Which wasn’t a problem for the models on the catwalk. If you’ve seen previous collections of Sass & Bide then you’ll probably recognize a lot. The collection was a typical Sass & Bide style with a largely black, white and gold palette.
But still the collection looked very fresh and ready to wear.


My favourite piece:


And the last one: Ralph Lauren Fall 2014

 There’s only one word I could think of when I saw the Ralph Lauren fashion show: chic.

Everything is so typical Ralph Lauren. The enormous coats, the heats and pantalons.
It is not my favourite collection of NYFW but I really like the chic look.
I absolutely loved the big coats and this is probabl the most beautiful coat I have ever seen:

 

 

From Clinique to Tea Tree

A few months ago I decided that I needed to spent less money on my skin care. I know skin care is really important but because I’m a student with no job I can’t afford to spent so much money on skin care products. I’ve been using Clinique for 6 years. My mum uses it for as long as I can remember so I started using it as well when I was about 12 years old. But to be honest for such an expensive brand I wasn’t really satisfied with the way my skin looked. I always had spots on my face even though I used my Clinique three steps everyday.

I have a really dry and sensible skin so I can’t use perfumed skin care. I decided to try the tea tree products because it’s a natural product.
The first product I bought was the Tea tree Cleanser.

 This light, soothing, non-greasy moisturiser is enriched with the moisturising ingredients Pro-vitamin B5 and Aloe Vera. The word Aloe Vera made me very happy! This Cleanser is only 3 pounds at superdrug so I saved a lot of money! (My Clinique cleanser is over 25 pounds)
Tea Tree oil originates from Australia. It is a natural antibacterial agent known for its antiseptic healing properties. Peppermint oil is renowned for its therapeutic effect on skin disorders and for its cooling sensation.

You really don’t need much of it, just use a small amount of the cleanser and rub it into your face. It feels so fresh!

The next product is the Tea Tree facial scrub. My friend went to Bath two months ago and she bought me this because I couldn’t stop talking about how amazing my cleanser was.

Just like the cleanser the scrub feels so fresh. The smell is amazing (if you like the smell of mint). If you want to use both the cleanser and the scrub, use the cleanser first and after you’ve washed it of use the scrub. The scrub is 3 pounds as well. There is also a primer,toner, wispes and moisturiser. I also use the wipes to clean my face but I haven’t used the creams or primer. If you do use the other products let me know what you think!

How to get in shape at home

sdad

For a long time I thought being a member of the gym was the only way to get in shape.
Well, I was wrong!
In January this year I decided to join the local gym. I wanted this for such a long time but I always tried to do some work outs at home. I didn’t really see any progress so I thought that it was impossible to get in shape withouth going to the gym.

I now see that this is total nonsens. I’m the kind of girl who doesn’t feel comfortable working out while lots of people are watching me. 
I’ve started working out at home again, my biggest inspiration: youtube. You really don’t need to spend a lot of money on a membership at the gym when all you have to do is go to youtube. Since a couple of months I do yoga, pilates and even the Victoria’s secret work outs. Apart from the fact that I feel amazing, I can also see teh progress my body’s making. If you make a playlist with all the videos you think you might need to reach your goal, you don’t have to worry ever again!

I’ll post the links of the videos I use at the end of this post.
I have to say, I didn’t start working out because I needed to lose weight. I just wanted to be in shape, to train my muscles.
If you do want to lose ( a lot of) weight, I don’t know if the work outs I do will be right for you. To lose weight you have to do a mix of cardio and strength work outs. I don’t do cardio at home, but you can always go out for a walk of course.

I’ve also paid a lot of attention to my diet. I don’t drink soda or whole milk. As a snack I eat nuts/seeds or fruit.
I really feel much better since I’ve started eating healthier and working out. And of course I have days that I do eat junk food, but who doesn’t? You just need to find a balance and everything will be okay!
And you don’t always have time to work out but just try to do a few excercises in the morning, some in the afternoon and also some before you go to bed. You don’t need to be working out for 2 hours. Just like your diet, find a balance.

If you want to start working out and live healthier: You can do it! Never think that it’s impossible for you to get in shape.

London fashion week; my favorites

Hi!

I’m a little late with this but nevermind!
London fashion week just finished and for me that is the most amazing fashion week of the year. I love the work of all the british designers. I thought I’d just post some of my favorite outfits/shows of the LFW 2013. They’re al black and white , cause that are kind of the only colors I wea :)r. My fave show was the Burberry Prorsum both spring/summer and fall/winter.

I loved almost everything I saw on the catwalk of the Burberry show this year! All the clothes are so casual but still look very luxurious. I picked the outfit Jordan Dunn was wearing because I think she looked amazing in it and I love the blouse.

I didn’t really like the fall/winter collection of beautiful soul London but I did like the spring/summer looks. Love this casual black dress.
