Unicorn makeup & outfit

At the moment we’re having carnaval here, a festivity where you dress up and party. I decided last minute that I would go, so I didn’t have the time to buy anything. Instead I created my own unicorn horn and outfit, and I would love to share it with you! 🙂

This was what I was wearing. I made the Unicorn horn from paper, just as the ears and placed this between a flower headband I had from Primark. For clothes I was wearing this silver glitter shirt from H&M and a pink skirt I found in my sisters closet. The poofy pink skirt was from carnaval a few years ago.

For makeup I also went a bit more festive (lots of highlighter )

FACE: L’Oréal True Match Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer, Maybelline Matte Me powder, Makeup Revolution Contour Palette, I heart Makeup Unicorn Highlighter, Freedom Blush Palette

EYES: Catrice eyeshadow Base, Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette (pink color), eyeliner & mascara and glitters from the primark glitter palette

LIPS: NYX Liquid Suede in Amethyst

That’s it, I really loved it.

Thanks for visiting, have a nice day!

I HEART MAKEUP Naked Chocolate Palette | Review

iheartmaku

This palette is so adorable! Just look at the packaging, so cute how they made this chocolate bar. I’m owning this cute palette for a while now, and I figured it was time to review it on my blog.

IMG_5100.JPG

The I HEART MAKEUP Naked Chocolate Palette really reminds me of the Too Faced Chocolate Palettes. I believe I HEART MAKEUP is known for the Too Faced dupes. They also have these heart blushes and highlighters that really look like the Too Faced ones.

The colors in this palette are so lovel. All very natural, but also great to make a more smokey look. I also love how they put in matte but also shimmery colors.

IMG_5092.JPG

Smoothly – Divine – Mocha Lover – Dipped – Choc-fest

The first row of eyeshadow are very natural and shimmery, expect the first and last one.

IMG_5094.JPG

Adorable – Buttons – Frosted Choc – Delight – Sweet Shop – Sugar

These colors are darker, and I feel like they also are more pigmented. Is that possible? Would be very strange actually. I’m really loving the color Frosted Choc. It’s so beautiful as a popping eyelid color. Most of the colors in this row are shimmery

IMG_5096.JPG

Double dip – ‘Tob-le-rone’ – Wonka – Milky – Way

The last row, most of the colors in this row are matte. It stands out that the matte colors are less pigmented than the shimmery colors. They’re still great, just a little less pigmented.

The palette is really lovely. The shimmery colors are beautiful and very pigmented and in combination with the matte colors you can make amazing eyeshadow looks. The packaging is adorable, and another advantage is that the palette is affordable. It’s only €10. It’s great!

Thank you for visiting, have a lovely day! xxx

Backpacking Preparations | Travel

2017-02-19-06-13-51-1

Hi,

In two weeks I will be leaving for my backpacking adventure to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. I already told a bit about it in this blogpost about my gap year update, where I also wrote about getting 100 followers on my blog. And guess what, a few days ago I reached 200! I can’t believe it was only a month ago that I reached 100, and now I’m already over 200 followers. Thank you so much guys for supporting and following me, it means a lot to me and I’m so happy, I’ve never expected it!

Okay, so in two weeks I’m in Bangkok, Thailand. I will be travelling there with a backpacking group, but I will make a post about that where I tell everything before I leave. I already knew that with travelling there also comes a lot of arranging, but I feel like that with destinations further away comes also way more stress. I mean, most of the times you go on a trip to somewhere in Europe, you don’t have to get vaccines,  extra travel insurance or to think about how less you bring with you to prevent a hernia. To clear my mind a bit, and to maybe help others who are in the same situation, here is a little TO DO LIST before you leave:

2017-02-19-06-11-22-1

PASSPORT

Make sure your passport is valid for a while, other wise it may be possible they won’t give you a visa or you aren’t possible to travel. Oh and DON’T FORGET IT!!

VISA

For some countries you need to do a little extra work to get a visa. In a lot of countries you can get a visa on arrival (for example Thailand and Cambodia), but there are some exceptions. For instance, to get a visa for Vietnam, you have to get a approval letter.

VACCINES

Also very important, better to be sure than unsure. Oh and try to schedule getting your vaccination in a week you don’t have to do much with your arms. It’s going to hurt for a while, not very pleasant. (I made this mistake hehe )

TRAVEL & HEALTH INSURANCE

Again, better to be sure than unsure. It’s a lot of money for something that you maybe are not going to use, but it will cost you more if you’re not insured and something happens to you.

BACKPACK

How can you go backpacking without a backpack?! Make sure you find the right one, one that fits nice on you and feels good. I still have to buy mine oops, but I already know wich I’m going to get.

PACKING LIST

Make a packing list, so you know what you want to bring, you don’t forget anything and what you have to buy before you leave. Don’t only make a list of the clothes you want to bring, but also of the essentials like sunscreen, deet, travel plug etc. And try not to bring too much! This is going to be hard for me haha, but I have to remember I have to carry it everytime and I don’t want to end up with a hernia.

Well, these are the things I’m keeping myself busy with at the moment. Most of the things can already get checked of the to do list, so I can focus on reading about the culture and planning the things I want to see. I’m very excited, but also a bit nervous. This will be my first trip ever all alone, but it will be a great experience. I will post more preparing post as in the next two weeks.:)

By the way, have you seen my new header? I’m so happy with it! I am blogging for a few months now, and I finally made my own personal header. (it took me pretty long to finally start making one oops)  I love the pink and the daisy flower, it’s so cute.

Thank you so much for visiting. Have a lovely day!

Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb | Review

20170216_092144.jpg

My favorite perfume is definitely Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf. It is a few years ago when I discovered this wonderfull perfume. I recieved a sample of it with another perfume, and I fell in love immediately. It smells so good!

20170216_09205120170216_09210820170216_092214

I was 15 or 16 when I smelled the perfume for the first time. I remembered it was so expensive, around €90. At the time I couldn’t afford it, so I saved some money and gift cards until I finally had the money. I think I was 17 when I purchased the perfume, almost 2 years ago.

Instead of only the perfume (50 mL), I choose the gift box. It was the same price, and I got a bodylotion and shower gel with it.( That I still haven’t used oops, they just smell too good ) I love the design of the box, the color is perfect and it’s so simple. Just as the bottle, it’s so simple but so beautiful and luxurious.

20170216_092238

Flowerbomb is an eau de parfum, so it’s stronger and stays on all day. I barely have to put it on later on the day. Most of the time, I only wear it for special occasions. That’s because it’s quite expensive and for me it’s a special parfum.

The perfume smells, as the name says, like flowers. It has a sweet smell, but not to much. I find it very femine, but also girly. (is that a thing?) Sephora describes it as a floral explosian, I think that’s the right thing to say.

Notes:
Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.
Style:
Oriental. Gourmand. Floral.

I really love this perfume, it’s been my favorite for a few years now and I still haven’t smelled a parfum that could beat this one.

Thank you so much for visiting, have a lovely day!

COCONUT OIL IS THE ANSWER

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor coconut oil quotes funny

I’ve seen this photo so many times on facebook now, that I just had to share my experience with coconut oil. Indeed, it’s amazing and is a solution for so many things! However, coconut oil is not my whole life or someting like that, I mean some people use it for everything. There are a lot of health benefits and other benefits of coconut oil  to be found all over the internet, but I never really tried this. (maybe I should?) In this post I will tell you my tips and experience with coconut oil.

HAIR MASK

Coconut oil is so rich and oily, it’s perfect as a hair mask. It makes your hair really soft and shiney. I always brush my hair out, scoop some coconut oil out of my jar and warm it up in my hands above my head (so that the dripping oil falls on my head instead of on the floor), I devide it in my hair and leave it in for 30 minutes minimal. The longer the better. When washing it out, I only use shampoo. I have to wash it more than once before all the oil is out of my hair. (I mentioned this before in my post about my hair care routine.:) )

20170215_115533

MAKEUP REMOVER

It also can be used as a makeup remover for your whole face, or only the eyes. I like it remove my eyemakeup with coconut oil. The grease works very good for removing mascara and eyeliner.

MOISTURIZER

Coconut oil is perfect to moisturize your dry legs, knees, elbows, lips and even cuticles. It makes your skin so soft, and it smells lightly like coconut but it’s mostly odorless.

COOKING

We used to use coconut oil to bake our meat and vegetables. It works really well! The only disadvantage is that coconut oil is hard when it’s cold, so you always have to scoop it out. I personally find it easier when cooking oil is liquid, so I prefer olive oil more to cook with.

These are my tips and what I use coconut oil for. There are a lot more things where you can use it for though, for example: as a shaving cream, oil pulling, to eat (it seems to be very good for you health). Sadly I can’t tell you if it really works, maybe I should try it out…

What are you experiences with coconut oil?

Thank you so much for visiting, have a lovely day!

NYX Lingerie | Review

IMG_5082.JPG

A while ago, when I was in London I purchased some products from NYX. I already wrote a review about the brow pomade and liquid suede so now it’s time for the NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick! I had seen so much pictures already of all the beautiful colors, so I was glad that I could finally check them out myself.

IMG_5085.JPG

The applicator is different from the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream lipsticks. This one is a bit longer and thinner, what makes it easier to apply the lipstick. The color stays for a long time on the lips, and it doesn’t feel drying at all!

img_5090

I went for the color Embellishment. It’s a greyish/purple color, very cool toned also. This one grabbed my attention immediately. I love how it is a nude color, as all the colors in the NYX Lingerie line, but it’s also very different from the others because of the purple in it.

Once again, NYX doens’t dissapoint me. I love their products and I’m looking forward trying out more beautiful lippies!

Have a lovely day! I’m having snow here in the Netherlands, it always comes so random and unexpected haha. My cute little bunny loves it though!
Lots of love xxx

New bag, earpiercing and more | SHOPLOG

20170208_130957

Hi guys!

Today I want to show you my february shoplog. I know february isn’t over yet, in fact it only just begon. However, I’m not planning on shopping anymore this month, only some things for my backpack trip (I mean, how am I supposed to go backpacking without a backpack). Some of the things I bought, are also a bit for my backpacking adventure 🙂

img_5026img_5029

THE BAG

Last Saturday I went to Utrecht for my assessment for optometrie, it went quit well. I had this trainticket what I could use all day long, so I decided to go to Amsterdam and The Hague afterwards. In all three cities I did some shopping, in Utrecht some cinnabons, in the Hague some delicious Chinese food (yes I travelled all the way there for some Chinatown food…) and in Amsterdam I actually went to visit the NYX store and Forever21. Didn’t buy anything at both stores. On my way back to the station I came past the new huge Primark, so I decided to take a look. For a while I was searching for a affordable, small, flat bag. And there it was, just hanging in the Primark for only €7! The fit is great, perfect for my phone, a lipstick, money and even an ereader or book fits in.

EREADER + CASE

The next thing in my shoplog is my ereader. Now I don’t have to buy books anymore on vacation because I ran out of books haha. I purchased it in January though, but only bought the case last weekend. I went for this beautiful rosegold case. Same as my phone, I just love pinkish colors.

IMG_5036.JPG

THE AMSTERDAM TSHIRT

Saw this one hanging too in the Primark in Amsterdam. The tourist me couldn’t resist it, and it was only €3.

IMG_5034.JPG

THE PASSPORT COVER AND NOTEBOOKS

On Sunday I did an order at the webshop of HEMA (a dutch store). I ordered a passport cover and some notebooks, already for my trip. At least now my passport can’t damage (hopefully), and it looks cute!

I also purchased this cute duvet cover from HEMA, it’s grey with little white hearts all over it. It’s adorable!

IMG_5000 (2).JPG

THE EARPIERCING

Finally I had the balls to get a second earlobe earring! For a while now I was in doubt if I should do it or not. I was mostly scared that I wouldn’t like how it looks. I decided I just had to do it, and if I didn’t like it I could always take it out. And I’m so happy I did it! I really like how it looks.

Shooting the earring (I know getting it pierced is better, but shooting is faster and less painfull they say) however wasn’t that great. I don’t get how people say it doesn’t hurt, because you surely feel something pinching in your ear, and that’s really not something I would like to experience everyday. And I’m not even talking about the hurting afterwards. That was the worse.  But, I survived the ‘pain’ and I’m really happy with the result!

That’s it, thanks for visiting! Have a lovely day 🙂

MAKEUP REVOLUTION ultra contour palette | Review

IMG_4951.JPG

In a lot of my MOTD posts, I tell I use the Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette for contour. (for example here, here and here) I thought it was time to properly write about the palette, as I use it almost everytime I put on makeup.

IMG_4957.JPG

This is what the colors look like, please don’t mind the quit dirty mirror and just everything. I have it for over a year now, and I also used it a lot. The palette contains 8 colors to contour and highlight. The first row are highlight colors. The first two are matte, pink toned and yellow. (reminds me of the banana powder). Honestly I barely use them, because I always use another finishing powder. Sometimes I use the yellow one under my eyes though, to make me look more awake. The two highlighters next to it are beautiful! I love the third one in the row the most for a natural glowy highlighter. It gives a lovely glow, but not like bam NikkiTutorials glow (love that though, but personally not for everyday). The other one is soooo pretty, that’s the one I use when I want a cool toned more shiney highlighter.

The second row are the contour colors. Actually I only use the second one, because I had the feeling that looks the best on my skin. Cool toned again. But after I made some swatches, I saw that the first and third are also quit fitting!

IMG_4959.JPG

Here you see the swatchs of the first row, the ‘highlight’colors. The pigmentation is great. Also the difference between the two highlighter is showable here.

IMG_4962.JPG

The contour colors! These also are very pigmented. The last color is a shimmery bronzy color. I think it would be lovely for a summer bronzed look!

wp-image-728771929jpg.jpg

On an everyday basis, I always try to keep my contour and highlight as natural as possible. Most of the times I use the third highligther. On the picture above you can see the contour and highlighter together. For me this was quit much contour.

I really love the palette. The colors are great for me, the pigmentation is very good and it’s also affordable. It’s only 10 euro! I recommend this palette to anyone who is looking for a affordable powder contour palette.

Thank you very much for visiting. Have a lovely day!

London 2017 | Aftermovie

It took me a while, but I finally finished editing all the London footage I had from my London trip. By the way, excuse my bad filming skills and editing skills. Walking and trying to film at the same time isn’t the best combination oops.

In the end of the video there is this thing called the “missed out flight so now we have to sleep at the airport” vlog. We talk Dutch there, and I realise that most of my blog followers speak English and that you won’t understand what’s going on. I wanted to put subtitles under the video, but well my editing skills aren’t that great so….

I will give you a brief summary. When in the Burger King we’re talking about how we had to wait over one hour for the bus and how ryanair didn’t accept us on the plane anymore. That is kinda what we talk about the whole “vlog” 🙂 . The rest is just us showing how we stay there the whole night.

Thanks for watching! Don’t forget to like and subscribe to my youtube channel for more travel videos!

Have a lovely day!
