Resolutions TAG 2015!

Hello my lovelies,
I hope you're enjoying the last day of 2014. Can't wait for the fireworks to start tonight and the champagne bottles to pop.
Last year I did the Resolutions TAG, so why not do it this year again?

1. Name 3 things you did this year you're proud of.

First of all I'm proud of finishing high school and earning my VWO-diploma. Because of my CFS this was something nearly impossible for me, but I managed to do it, so I'm very proud of myself for surprising everyone, including myself, and showing I could do this.
Another thing I'm proud of is deciding to finsih this year of my eduction to become a primary school teacher, even though I won't get enough points to continue next year. Because of my CFS I can't fulfill my internship, which means I have to stop and do a different education next year. I could have said to stop right now, but I decided to continue, because I simply can't do nothing for half a year. I'm thinking about studying speech-language pathology next year, but I'm not complety sure yet.
I find the third thing quite hard to think of. I'm happy I moved out and really enjoy my life in my appartment with my two flatmates, but it's not something I would say I'm proud of.
I think I'm proud for accepting the fact I need help from someone proffesional with my CFS, because I find it gets worse in stressfull periods. I would love to learn how to chill and relax and not be snappy and annoying in stressfull periods. Next year I'm hoping I can see someone to help me with this. Admitting I need help is a pretty difficult thing for me, since I'm quite an independent person and want to do everything myself, solve every problem myself and finish every project myself.

2. Name one thing you wish you had done differently.

I wish I had admitted my health was going downhill earlier, because I get really snappy and annoying and unhappy when I feel sick, which is difficult not only for me, but especially for the people who are close to me. I hate being like this and hurting the people whom I love with nasty comments, so if I had rested earlier, I would have prevented this from happening.

3. What was your biggest highlight this year?

Moving out. I've been wanting to move out for so long. I love my parents and sister a lot. But having my own place and living in the city is just something I've been dreaming of for such a long time. I am so happy to have a beautiful room and nice and sweet flatmates, the rent might be a bit much, but it's definately worth it.

4. What was your favourite beauty product this year?

My Catrice Liquid Eyeliner in Dating Joe Black, which is funny, because last year my beauty resolution was to wear more eyeliner in 2014.
But I'm also in love with my L'Oréal Privée Lipsticks.

5. What was your least favourite beauty product this year?

I had to think really hard about this one. I remember buying a nude lipstick this year, tried it on after having it in my drawer for a month, and threw it away immediately after. It was way too light for me. Most nudes just don't suit me. I can't really remember which lipstick it was. I believe it was from Rimmel, but I may be wrong.

6. Who do you want to thank for being amazing this year?

My family and my boyfriend for sticking with me, even when I'm snappy and not myself. They are such good people.

7. What are the make up/beauty resolutions you have for next year?

Moisturise. Last couple of months I haven't been using moisturiser like I should, every morning and every night, more like 3 times a week. You can imagine my skin feels and looks like a desert.

8. What are your fashion resolutions for next year?

Don't spend so much money on clothes..... Oops.

9. What are your personal resolutions for next year?

I just really want to enjoy this year and hope to learn how to deal with stress.

10. Name one thing you want to check of your bucket list next year.

I would love to book a last minute this autumn, preferebly to Rome, but most places will be fine for me.

That's it. Tag done. Just like 2014. Hope you have an amazing 2015. May everything good happen to you. Enjoy the fireworks and champagne (but not too much) and feel free to do this tag if you like, because you're tagged.

PS Do you like my way over edited fire works picture? I got bored and let myself go.

Christmas TAG

Merry Christmas my loves.
My family has gone to bed and I'm not very sleepy yet, so I thought I'd kill some time and do the Christmas TAG.
Before I start I'd just like to say that I don't celebrate Christmas with presents. In the Netherlands this is quite common since we celebrate Sinterklaas on the 5th of December, this is where we give eachother (or Sinterklaas gives us) loads of presents. Let's just say Sinterklaas is our Saint Nick.
Another reason is my family and I celebrate Christmas because of the birth of Jesus and my parents don't really like the idea of Santa or Father Christmas, because it has nothing to do with the orignal Christmas celebrations. I'm not saying anything with this, I just wanted to let you know how I celebrate Christmas, because it might influence the TAG a bit. We do have a Christmas tree and Christmas decorations and eat a delicious dinner with the family and play loads of boardgames. I don't mind people who give presents on Christmas day, and don't mind Saint Nick at all. It's just the way I've always celebrated Christmas. Personally I'm always interested in different cultures, so for those of you who share this interest, there you go (:
Let's start with the questions now.

1. What is your favourite Christmas movie?

This question is really funny, because two days ago I remembered a Christmas movie I loved as a kid. I didn't remember the name of it and we no longer have it because it was on a VCR. I searched the internet and found out it was called "Betoverende Kerstsprookjes". The english title is Christmas in Cartoontown. I just ordered it online and can't wait to watch it again after 10 years.

2. What are your favourite Christmas colours?

Deep dark red. Can't recist the classic.

3. Do you like to stay in your PJs or dress up for Christmas?

I start my day in PJs for brunch and after brunch I'd usually go and dress up. So both. But if I had to choose, I would pick dressing up for Christmas. Perfect excuse to make yourself look pretty and go all out with make up, hair and fashion.

4. If you could only buy one person a present this year, who would it be?

If I were to give presents for Christmas, but could only give them to one person it would probably be to my boyfriend, or my sister. And I would pick something small and personal.

5. Do you open your presents on Christmas eve or Christmas morning?

Not (:
But I would prefer to open presents in the evening, because you'll see the pile of Christmas presents under the tree the entire day and get all excited.

6. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?

Yes, and massively failed so just ate the entire thing before it was finished. Oops.

7. What do you like to do on your Christmas break?

Spend time with friends and family and have nice relaxing evenings in front of the fire in my PJs with a good hot chocolate. And go shopping, twice... Christmas outfit shopping and Christmas sale shopping. Can you tell I'm addicted to shopping?

8. Any Christmas wishes?

Snow! Or temperatures to drop so we can go ice skating on the canal in front of my parent's house.
Not both though, because it ruins the ice. So one at the time please (:

9. Favourite Chirstmas smell?

Burning wood in the fireplace and of course the Christmas tree. Better not combine the two, will probably smell amazing though.

10. Favourite Christmas meal or treat?

The desserts are the best part of Christmas dinner, so those. No matter how full I am from all the delicious foods, I can always add a dessert or two, three. Maybe five. Seven max.

And those were the questions and answers from the Christmas TAG.
Feel free to do this TAG as well. I'd love to see your answers.
For now, have a nice Christmas, eat loads of delicious foods and enjoy spending time with your loved ones.

Review: M.A.C Lipstick in Retro


Recently picked up this gorgeous lipstick. Isn't it just perfect for autumn and winter? This Mac Lipstick in Retro is a gorgeous teracotta/rusty red colour. It's not an in the face red, but almost a muted red, due to it's brown and peachy tones and pink undertones, making it perfect for every day wear.
It is one of Mac's satin formulas which means great and even pigmentation, non-drying on the lips and a semi-matte finish. It is creamy to apply and I would suggest using a lipliner. I picked up Mac's lip pencil in Chicory to go with this. It's just a tint lighter creating a soft gradient, ombre effect.
It is a lipstick not very popular in the blogging world, but it's my favourite. This colour will suit a lot of skintones and hair colours, so honestly, why not?

DIY: Cute Table Decorations made by my Sister

My sweet little sis made me these cute decorations for my room. I really loved them and they go perfect with the style of my room. Thanks sis!
They are really easy to make, in fact, I think it speaks for itself.
All you need is a pretty glass, a white rose and some dried transparant leaves, but you can of course change this to your own liking.
I just thought it was sweet of my sis to make these for me, and wanted to share this cute idea with you. I mean, don't these just look so pretty on my dressing table?
Happy Sunday.

SickTip #4

With an illness like CFS it is important we listen to our bodies. They tell us what we can and what we can't do. Which is, to be honest, the most annoying thing to be told. So people tend to ignore it. Because we do not only have a body, we have a heart, a soul, a desire to fulfill our dreams and that's our health. It's the most important thing in our lives and we should keep it that way. Even though our bodies might tell us differently, we must fight to fulfill our dreams, because life will mean nothing if we don't try.
No matter how great any of this sounds, it's not easy. However, this doesn't mean it's impossible. When you're ill, mind and body are at war. They won't cooperate and want to take each other down. You alone can call for a cease fire and make the two work together. This takes time and a lot of practice, but you'll get there.
Being ill is difficult, the dreams you once had feel further away than they have ever felt. This might be true. Being sick and exhausted makes it more difficult, I'm not going to lie nor sugar coat it, but it will be hard, tough and you'll need help reaching your goals. You might not even reach them at all, but if we don't try, we'll never know. In the end, the journey makes us stonger, forms us into the person we were supposed to become, teaches us lessons essential in life. We, as people who are sick, need this, maybe even more than anyone else.
We should indeed listen to our bodies, rest when we need to, so we have a change to recover. But when our bodies allow us to travel one step closer to our dreams, we should take that step, even if there are thousands of steps more needed to reach our destination. So make it count. Good luck.

Dressing up for Christmas

1. HERE 2. HERE 3. HERE 4. HERE 5. HERE 6. HERE 7. HERE 8. HERE 9. HERE 10. HERE
Last minute online Christmas dress shopping has begun. Take your change and have a look. Above are some dresses available on which are perfect for a Christmas or a New Year's Eve party.
 I love a classic red dress like number 8 for Christmas and number 5 is a gorgous two piece I would love to wear to a party.
Number 2 reminds me a lot of The Great Gatsby, which is my favourite movie. Which reminds me to buy the book to read in front of the fire with a mug of hot coco. Can't wait! Let me know which dress you will you be wearing.

November Favourites

November is over and gone, but before we delve into the red lipsticks, winged liner and glittery eye shadows for this festive month we call December, I'm sharing with you the products I have been loving the previous month.

L - R: Julianne | Laetitia | Eva

Lately I have started wearing lipstick on a daily basis. So it is no surprise there are quite a lot of lipsticks in this monthly favourites. They're all from L'Oréal Paris and I've reviewed them on my blog, so you can read more about them in this and this post.

The lipstick on the left and right are from the L'Oréal Privee collection and are the most perfect nude lipsticks for every day wear, but when I wanted to go for something a bit more daring I picked the lipstick in the middle from L'Oréal's Exclusive collection, which is a gorgeous dark berry red.
These lipsticks last a good time on the lips and are moisturizing. I would advice however to wear a lipliner with Laetitia's Pure Red lipstick, to make it look flawless, because it's a bit tricky to apply.

L - R: 04 Sweet Cherry | 115 RedBlack
Other than lipstick I've also been loving this cream blush by Bourjois. It's a gorgeous colour for winter and because it's a cream blush it works well with my dry skin. I apply this using my finger and blend it out with my foundation brush for a natural effect. This product has a creamy formula but once applied it goes to powdery, which looks beautiful on the cheecks and makes you look like you've taken a walk outside.

Lastly I've got my current favourite nail polish which is dark (obviously). It's by Barry M in a gorgeous dark, almost black, red colour. I love wearing this in the winter and it goes with a lot of outfits. It takes 5 to 7 days for the nail polish to start chipping, which I find perfect.

Those are my favourites from November. Which products have you been liking? Let me know in the comments below.

Gift Idea for your Boyfriend

Hello lovelies.

I'm holding on to my uploading schedule quite well, if I say so myself.
Today is Sunday, which on this blog means a DIY post will pop up.

Since Christmas is getting closer I know some of you are stressing to find that perfect gift for your boyfriend. I don't celebrate Christmas with gifts, but 2 days ago I celebrated Sinterklaas with my family and boyfriend, which is were we give each other presents. I made him this little gift, and I think he loved it.

My boyfriend and I love travelling and have until now been on three trips. Paris, London and Germany where we visited Hamburg. I searched through my photographs of those travels and chose three I liked. I googled some nostalgic looking maps of those cities and combined the two playing with the transparency.

It's pretty simple if you've got some basic knowledge in photo editing, but even if you've never edited photo's before it will probably work out, it just might take a little longer.

I ended up with this result and thought it looked really nice, which made me want to share it with you guys.

What do you think of this DIY? Will you be doing this? Let me know in the comments below!

SickTip #3

It's been to long since I did one of these, but like I said in my previous post, I wan't to change my uploading schedule drastically. Which means that from now on, every Saturday you'll find a new SickTip on my blog, calling this day SickTip Saturday.
Today I'll be talking about telling people how you feel. I know this has been a problem I struggled with a lot when I was ill. I always thought no one would understand how I felt, but how could I ever expect them to, if I din't even try to explain?
For a long time I walked around with feeling cropped up in my body. Making it feel like I had a massive weight on my shoulders. Every day the weight on my shoulders felt heavier and heavier, which made having CFS a lot harder. After probably a year I finally sat down and talked with my parents about every single thing, the big things but also the little things. I got to know how they felt and thought about everything and so did they about me. We probably talked for hours, but every minute the weight on my shoulders decreased. It felt so good to let those tears I've been holding back roll over my cheeks. That was also the moment I came to notice it was not only a hard time for me, but also for my parents. Never before I thought about how painful it must have been for them to see me so ill. It opened up my eyes.
What I want to tell with this story is: tell someone how you feel. Don't crop up your feelings like I did, and if you did, tell someone. Please do, because it's so important. Tell someone who's close to you, like your parents, brother or sister, good friend or boyfriend/girlfriend. It feels so good, trust me.
Even if you think they won't understand, the least thing you can do is try. Pleaso do, because it's so important.
Also, know you're not the only one. There are so many people on this earth feeling the same way you do. Wouldn't it be great if in some way, we could speak with each other. For now we can do this in the comment section, or feel free to email me if you want to have somebody to talk to.
I wish you all the strength you need.

I've been wanting to change my uploading schedule, since it's pretty crappy.
I decided I want to put up at least 5 posts a week starting with Fashion Friday.
Even though it's Saturday right now, but yesterday my internet wouldn't allow me to post this for some reason.
I am loving this outfit right now. The combination of dark blue denim and chic black really works well. Especially combined with a pretty statement necklace and some high heels.
See you guys tomorrow with another post!

Pumpkin for Dinner: Recipe for October/Halloween

It's nearly Halloween!! Time to plan our scary outfits, think of cool make up, decorate our houses, drink hot chocolates by the fire, waiting for our hair to dry from the rain and time to carve some pumpkins. However, pumpkins can also be made into a delecious dinner following the next recipe.
Feel free to alter some things to your liking, this is just how I made my dinner.

Halloween Dinner (Pumpkin and Couscous)
For 4 people

1 small pumpkin
200 gr Couscous
120 gr Snow Peas
100 gr Raisins
Olive oil
Lemon juice
Chicken Bouillon Cube

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
Step 2: Cut the pumpkin into little squares. This is harder than it looks, so please be carefull. Put them on a baking tray and sprinkle them with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Put the tray in the oven. Leave the pumpkin in for about 20 minutes.
Step 3: Make a dressing out of half a teaspoon of sambal, the leaves of 6 stems of mint, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey and 4 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix it well.
Step 4: Boil 400 ml water and add half of the chicken bouillon cube, once the cube is dissolved, add the couscous. Use the instructions on the packaging, because they may vary.
Step 5: Cook the Snow Peas, when they're done, rinse with cold water and cut into smaller pieces.
Step 6: When the couscous is ready, stir with a fork to loosen it up. Add the snow peas and the raisins.
Step 7: Put the couscous on a plate and sprinkle the dressing on top. Add the pumpkin and your done. Enjoy your Halloween Pumpkin dinner!

Review: L'Oréal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds

Hello loves! How are you doing? You're fine? Good, good.
Today I'll be doing a review on these pretty lipsticks which are part of the L'Oréal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds range.
I've noticed we have different colours in the Netherlands than in the UK and probably more countries, so for most people these colours are hard to get by, sorry about that, but I wanted to show them to you anyway. And even though the colours and names might be different, the formula and packaging will probably be the same, so this post will hopefully still be helpful to you, or at least enjoyable to read.
If you're more of a nude lipstick person, I've also reviewed the Collection Privée Nude lipsticks from L'Oréal Paris, which you can check out here.

Just like the Collection Privée lipsticks, these come in the most gorgeous black packaging with gold detailing. However, unlike the Collection Privée lipsticks, these have a subtle engraving which looks to me like crocodile print. I really like this, because red lipsticks are a bit more edgy than nude lipsticks, which is visible in the packaging. It also has the signatures of the people by whom this lipstick was inspired on them, which I really like. This way you can find your perfect red lipstick by looking for the person with a similar hair and skin colour, although I didn't really pick my lipsticks this way.

I went for Doutzen's pure red and Laetitia's pure red. I wouldn't really call these lipsticks pure reds, but they're gorgeous, so no complaints from my mouth. The other two colours we have in the Netherlands are Blake's red and Julianne's red, which I believe are also available in the UK, together with Liya's red and Eva's red, if I'm right, correct me if I'm wrong.

Doutzen's pure red is a vibrant orangey red lipstick, which is perfect for summer, but I also like it for autumn with Halloween coming up, due to its very pigmented orange colour. I've been wanting an orange lipstick for such a long time, so I'm glad I finally got my hands on one, and I love it. I'm not really used to wearing this colour on my lips, so it still feels a bit weird when I look in the mirror, but I am looking forward to wearing this loads in summer.
Also I just needed to add this lipstick to my collection, because Doutzen Kroes is a famous model and from the Netherlands! We rule! (: Maybe it's not a coincidence her lipstick looks so orange, because it's our national colour.

Laetitia's pure red is a gorgeous dark berry purple red lipstick. Perfect for the upcoming winter season. I'm not sure yet if this lipstick suits me, but it might be because dark lipsticks are new to me, since I've always been too scared to try them. But I just love this colour so much. It's so deep and rich and amazingly pigmented.

Both lipsticks have amazing pigmentation. They also last a long time on the lips, but they are also very creamy and tend to slip and slide. However, this is easily prevented by using a lip liner. The creaminess also makes these lipsticks moisturizing, which is great for my dry lips and amazing since both lipsticks are semi matte.

I'm so happy I bought these two lipsticks, even though I'm not sure these colours suit me very well. What do you think? It probably just takes some time for me to get used to them, but they are so pretty and feel great on the lips.
I'm really tempted to buy the other two colours and maybe even see if somehow I can buy Eva's and Liya's red as well.

I'm so sorry these two colours aren't available in the UK. If someone knows how to get these, please let me and my readers know in the comments so we can help each other out.

I hope you've enjoyed reading this post, if not, I'm sorry, better luck next time. Let me know if you have tried, or will be trying these pure reds and what you think about them. I want to know.

Review: Zoella Beauty Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist

When I heard that Zoe (Zoella) was bringing out a range of beauty products I became very excited. A short while back her products launched on the FeelUnique website and I immediately had to order the body mist in the collection. Also, can we all agree on how amazing the launch party of Zoella Beauty looked? It was amazingly decorated and not forgetting Zoe looking more gorgeous than she already normally does, in the most beautiful dress I've ever seen.
I will be talking about the actual product soon, all that I want to say is congratulations Zoe on creating a super sweet collection of beauty products.

Let's start with a very important factor of a fragrance: The packaging, and this one is the cutest. It is easy to see that Zoe designed the packaging of the products. Her signatures are all over, from the polka dots, to the handwriting and the red/gold lid. It is a gorgeous glass bottle, which is very compact and looks pretty standing on your dressing table.
The bottle contains 45 ml of a gorgeous scent. This is one of a few fragrances which smell better on the skin than from the bottle. With most fragrances I find this to be the other way around, which always bothers me. So if you're going to try this body mist in the store, try it on your skin to sniff the actual scent of the fragrance.

The fragerance itself is very light and sweet. I'm not a big fan of strong scents, so this is perfect for me. It smells very fruity and sweet containing notes of wild strawberry, violet, jasmin, gardenia and vanilla, which create a perfect scent altogether. I think this body mist is perfect for younger girls who've just started wearing perfume, but it's also a very nice scent for girls in their 20's and all ages in between.
The lasting power of this body mist is amazing. It is still well noticeable at the end of the day, couldn't be more perfect.

This is a great body mist and only cost me 8 pounds. What a great buy. Thank you Zoe for keeping your products well affordable.

Will you be buying the blissful mistful body mist? Or have you used something else from Zoe's bath & body collection? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Interior Peek

Hello loves,

Just a quick post before I'm heading out the door again. I recently bought this wooden crate on a marktet to add to my interior and I really love the way it turned out. I placed it next to my bed/couch to use it as a bedside/coffee table. Inside I've put my schoolbooks, but some fashion magazines would look prettier. On top I put some candles I bought on markets as well. It's so simple but I think this adds a nice touch to your room. What do you think?

Review: L'Oréal Paris Collection Privée Nude Lipsticks

Hello Girls, and maybe some guys? Don't know, but if you're there: Hiii!

I've been searching for the perfect nude lipstick for so long now. I am usually quite scared of wearing nude lipsticks, because my lips are quite pigmented and nude lipsticks look really dramatic on me. Furthermore, they often don't have enough pigmentation to cover my natural pigmented lips. The struggles...
Most people buy a nude lipstick as their first colour, but not me. (I started with a coral lipstick) For a very long time, no nude lipstick has made it to my makeup collection, but that has changed recently, when I bought these two beauties, and I love them to death.

I'm talking about the L'Oréal Paris Collection Privée Nude Lipsticks. I have been walking into the drugstore to swatch them again and again, but it took me a while to actually buy them. Then two months ago, the gorgeous girl Kitty from KittyHearts blogged about them. I asked her about the pigmentation of the lipsticks and which colour she would advise me to buy. And as the sweet girl she is, she answered my question and suggested the colour Eva to me.
So out I went, into the drugstore and bought Eva's Nude. I also couldn't resist the lipstick standing next to it being Julianne's Nude.
I have been wearing these two lipstick constantly and probably never been happier with a lipstick. That sounds so sad..

Sorry for the long intro, I'm in a chatty (writey) mood, but I'll start with the actual review and swatches now.

What drew me to these lipstick from the start was the packaging. I just can't resist a gorgeous matte black with gold detailed packaging. It's gorgeous and looks very luxurious. Just look at it! *drools*

But no matter how gorgeous the packaging is, the most important bit is inside. L'Oréal has come up with 6 nude shades inspired by 6 of their spokespersons: Doutzen Kroes, Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Cheryl Cole and Liya Kebede. The result? A gorgeous collection of nude lipstick in which everyone is able to find their perfect nude, even me! The shades I went for are Julianne's Nude and Eva's Nude.

Julianne's Nude is described as barely peach. "Sensual and delicate to the extreme, enhances the radiance of pale complexions and endows them with elegance and sophistication." It is a gorgeous peachy pink colour and applies beautifully on the lips. The lipstick feels and looks sheer on the lips, but is actually still very pigmented. Perfection. It is definitely a my lips but better shade. Love it.

Eva's Nude is described as barely golden. "With a hint of gold added, the best to capture the radiance of matte skin and sublimate the complexion, the sun‑kissed effect is worthy of the influential woman!" This lipstick is stunning. It is a gorgeous combination between orange, brown and gold and my favourite out of the two. I've been wearing this day after day and don't think I will ever get bored of it. Again it is amazingly pigmented.

Both lipsticks slide on perfectly on the lips. The formula is quite buttery and smooth. Even Eva's nude which is leaning towards the more matte lipsticks. Both lipsticks are also moisturising and last a good while on the lips, but touch ups after eating is never a bad idea.

I'm so happy I've finally found my perfect nude lipstick(s). If you struggle with finding your perfect nude lipstick, definitely go and check these out.

Let me know what your favourite nude lipstick is, I'd be interested to know. Also do you own any of the L'Oréal Collection Privée lipsticks? If yes, which one? And do you love it as much as I do?

I've also recently bought two of the L'Oréal Pure Red lipsticks, which I will blog about very soon. So keep your eye out for that, or when it's up, see the link at the end of this post.

For now, have a great weekend. I love you!

Back To School Outfits: H&M Edition

The summer has nearly ended and back to school season has started. Above are some outfits I've put together using H&M items only. I'm going to uni, so that was my target, but they can of course also be used for different schools and occasions. Click on the tiny pictures to go to the H&M website.
The images direct you to the British H&M, but all you need to do is change the gb in the url to the letters of your country.

Hope you like these outfits. I'm having a hard time not to go and buy every single item in this blogpost.
Which outfit is your favourite? Also let me know if you want me to do more back to school outfits for different shops.
