Purple Smokey Eyes | MOTD

IMG_5738 (2).JPG

It’s been such a long time since I posted an MOTD! I haven’t been wearing makeup that much anymore, but a few days ago I really got the urge to play around with eyeshadows. The look ended up to be a purple smokey eye, all colors from the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette. I love that palette way too much, it’s the one that I use most for MOTD’s on the blog! I will tell you have I’ve achieved this purple look.

And that’s the finished look! Not really a summer MOTD, but the purple makes the smokey eye less dark. Perfect for a fancy dinner or party!

Hope you liked it! It made me really happy to play with all my makeup again so there will be coming more makeup related posts again. I like OOTD’s, travel diaries and food, but makeup will always be the main subject on my blog. I just love it too much!

Lots of love xxxx

Denim Overalls |OOTD

IMG_5675IMG_5687IMG_5683IMG_5684IMG_5679IMG_5693IMG_5698

It’s been such a long time since I posted an outfit! This won’t be the last one, I promise. There are a few more on its way! As you can see, after two months traveling and making basic touristic travel pictures, my outfit posing skills still didn’t improve. The last photo proves the model life is not for me. Oh well…

In the Berlin Shoplog post, I already showed these lovely denim overalls from Primark. Aah, I love it so much. It’s so comfortable and in my opinion, it looks really cute and casual. As I may have mentioned before, I love comfortable and casual clothes. And if it looks nice, well that’s a great advantage.

I combined the denim overalls with a simple pinkish shirt from Bershka. It’s a crop top and a little bit wider, but long enough to fit in the overalls.

For shoes I chose for some black boots with a little heel from Van Haren, to make it a bit more feminine as the pants are quite baggy. Sneakers are also great, to make it extra casual.

My jewelry is all silver toned. Let’s start with the ears. In my, for you guys, left ear I’m wearing an interesting earring from Brandy Melville and a bali hoop that I bought in Cambodia. In the other ear, I’m wearing a ring with a little pendant and the one I got when my ears were pierced.

The necklace is from Tiffany’s & Co. The ring on the left hand was a present that I got in Hanoi, Vietnam for my birthday. The one, on the other hand, is from Swarovski, a present from my grandma for my 18th birthday.

And that’s the outfit! As the weather is getting better, it’s perfect for a spring or a not so hot summer day.

I will try to start blogging more again. I know I haven’t been that active the last 3 months, mostly because I just didn’t have any time. I want to start writing about makeup again, as I missed it so much! Blogposts are on its way 🙂

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

Where to eat: Streetfood Eindhoven |Best(ies) Lunch

Hi guys!

Recently I came up with this new idea. My bestfriend Gaby (follow her 🙂 ) and I try to have a date every week, and most of the times we go for lunch. As we want to try something new every time, we decided to write about it and share it with you guys! (Also, mostly all the spots are in the Netherlands. But when we go abroad we’ll definitely share that too!)

This week we ate at Streetfood Eindhoven in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

The place is really small, but in summer and spring when the weather is good, they have a nice terrace. Streetfood Eindhoven is in the center of the city, where all the shopping stores are at the Catherinaplein.

The ambiance is great and the staff was really nice. I really liked it there and it also looked really nice.

On the menu, they have loads of drinks, special sandwiches and their main product: the streetbox.  You can put together the streetbox just as you want. Choose the shape of your fries, salt, sauce and snack. They also sell milkshakes and ‘special’ milkshakes as a Unicorn Milkshake.

Gaby ordered a home made ice green tea with a sandwich with carpaccio (her favorite sandwich, she is probably going to order it everywhere and see where you can get the best). I ordered a unicorn milkshake and a street box with curly fries, seasoned salt, ketchup and a kroket.

The food was really good and I liked how they served it. So cute! And the milkshake was so tasty and it looked adorable. It was really big and together with the delicious street box a bit heavy, but I loved it. Gaby her food was also great.

I really recommend going here if you ever get the chance. It’s an amazing place and they serve such delicious and original food, in a special way. I loved it! It is definitely one of my favorite places.

We will try to do this more often, every week if possible. I really enjoyed it and loved sharing my opinion about it with you! Have a lovely day! xxx

we live by the sun | OOTD

20170517_12042420170517_12040520170517_12041120170517_120421

The sun is finally shining!! What means, sunglasses, sandals, and light colored jeans. I think this outfit is perfect for a warmer spring day. With a delicious bubble tea of course.

The t-shirt is one of my favorites. I bought it in Cambodia and the fabric feels so nice. I really love the print on the shirt, it says: We live by the sun, we feel by the moon. And as the sun is shining, it’s the perfect shirt.

My jeans are from Berschka.  I love the color, and of course that it is high waisted. High waisted jeans are my favorite.

For shoes, I’m wearing these gladiator-inspired sandals from Primark. I bought them a few year ago though, so I don’t think you can get them anymore.

I really love this look. It’s quite simple but I just wanted to share it with you!

Thank you for visiting and have a lovely and sunny day! xxxx

Citytrip: Berlin, Germany | Travel Diary

About a week ago I visited the beautiful capital of Germany with my family.

We arrived Saturday evening in Berlin after a long car ride. After checking in at our hotel we wandered a bit around looking for a place to eat. We saw a little piece of the wall. Eventually we ended up in an Italian restaurant.

While walking back to our hotel we saw this beautiful and impressive sunset over the railway.

Sunday morning we walked besides the wall. There were a lot impressive and political graffitis on the wall. Very interesting. I uploaded some to give you guys an impression.

We walked a lot and saw Checkpoint Charlie, an old watchtower, an expediton about the history of Berlin before the wall and also the Holocaust Monument. It was very impressive. We also went downstairs were you could read about what happened and families that didn’t survive it. It’s eye opening, especially because in school I mostly learned about what happened in my country and now I also read about how horrible it was in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

We also visited the Brandenburger Tor, walked over Unter den Linden, the Reichstag and a big church. The highlights.

In the evening we ate a big schnitzel. You kind of have to….

On Monday we did a shopping day. Yesterday we walked the whole day, and we visited quit heavy and emotional monuments, we decided that today would be a metro and shoppingday.

We went to the big shopping street Kurfurstendamm. It reminded me a bit of the Champs Elysees, what my father later told me, was the intention. The street was full with expensive shop as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci etc. I just love it, eventhough I can’t afford it. Doens’t matter where I am, but I almost always find the desinger shops.

There was also this big warehouse called Kaufhaus des Westens. I may have bought something at Tiffanys and Co there…. Audrey Hepburn was there too so…..

When I had spend all my money we walked to the Siegessäule. It was possible to get inside and walk all the stairs up to, where you had an amazing view.

In the evening we had dinner at an Italian restaurant again.

On Tuesday we went to the Hackesche Höfe, a cute little place with small shops inside. After some walking around we had lunch at an Asian restaurant where they had delicious Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese food.

We also went to the Museum Island and to some churches. Being cultural.

In the afternoon we visited Alexander Platz, where we shopped a little and had curry wurst with fries as dinner.

Wedneday it was time to go back home. We quickly visited Potsdam, where we had a delicious lunch and walked around a bit. After that it was time for the very long car ride again.

Berlin was very lovely. It was very educational, interesting and impressive. There is a lot to see and to learn. It impressed me a lot.

Hope you have a lovely day!

WHAT I BOUGHT IN SE ASIA | Shoplog

Ofcourse I shopped some stuff while I was travelling through Asia. When I left I was like, no I don’t need anything, but eventually somewhere in the end of Vietnam and Cambodia it went wrong and I bought a few things. Well at least I didn’t have to carry it with me from the beginning.

In Thailand I actually only bought an elephant bracelet. It was super cute but sadly I lost the elephant… Oh and I bought this green tiger balm for mosquito bites at 7/11. It really works!

VIETNAM

The first thing I bought in Vietnam (Hanoi) was this ‘fake’ grey Fjallraven Kanken backpack because my own backpack broke down. While I was in Berlin I saw the original ones and I compared that one to mine, and seriously they are the same. Everything. The real one is 85 euro, while mine (real or fake) was only 6 or 8 euro.

wp-image-724969192jpg.jpg

In Hanoi I also bought this super cute Brandy Melville inspired jumpsuit. For Vietnam it was quite ‘expensive’. I believe around 12 euro. But I really love it and wore it a lot already while travelling.

In Sapa there were a lot of cute bracelets, I actually didn’t buy them but got them from Josie and Paulien as a present. And I bought some for my sister.

snapchat-31183478.jpg

I also bought a rose quarts necklace but I will show that in a Cambodia shoplog picture.

For the rest I only bought some souvenirs for my family as magnets, keychains, and a Vietnamese head.

CAMBODIA

Well in Cambodia I was a few times alone where I was like, I want to go shopping let’s go to a market.

The first thing I bought was this touristic Cambodia shirt with a colorfull elephant. Please ignore the touristic Angkor Wat outfit and blue lips from the Fanta in the picture. What I like about the shirt is that it’s 100 % cotton and has a wide fit. That makes it great for temple visits. You’re still dying from the warmth and sweating like crazy, but it would be worse with a thight stretch shirt. It’s comfortable. And it was only 3 dollars.

20170417_081846.jpg

At the same market in Phnom Penh I also bought two pairs of the comfy colorfull shorts. I couldn’t choose so I just bought both… Two pairs for 5 dollars. How ironic that this picture is taken at a market though. What do you mean addicted? (and addicted to Green Tea Matcha Iced Latte yes)

wp-image-2113176590jpg.jpg

Now the necklaces! So in Nha Trang in Vietnam I bought the rose quartz necklace at a night market, and in Phnom Penh in Cambodia I bought this buddistic tree necklace. They look really cute togehter. I quite went for the ultimate hippy backpacker look or something with all my colorfull clothes, sapa bracelets, cool necklaces and henna tattoo. I hope you can see them, because there is quite a lot going on in the selfies. I showered everyday with both necklaces, and only the rose quartz one became a little bit rusty. What also gave it quite a cool look actually.

A while ago I got my second earlobe pierced, right now I’m even thinking about getting a third one in one ear. So I was looking for some cute hoops to accompany my bali hoops in my first earlobe. Right now they have replaced them because my first ones became really black because all of the smog. Well, I found these really cute bigger bali hoops for only 5 dollars! With bargain ofcourse, they all start at like 15 dollar or something. At first I was really bad at it, but my bargain skills evolved.

IMG-20170413-WA0040

Okay now my favorite purchase of my whole trip. This amazing flowy hippie dress. I bought it specially for Angkor Wat because it was boiling hot and you have to cover your shoulders and knees. It was really nice for the temples and it really gave me this cool hippie feeling, and only 8 dollars. Sorry for the overload, but I just love the dress so much.

Because I loved my elephant tshirt so much I decided I wanted another one. They also sold these cute one with the text: ‘We live by the sun, we feel by the moon’ (or maybe the other way around). So I bought another one together with some shirts for my friends. I ended up buying five shirts or something, oops. Well atleast they are only 2 dollars per piece.

20170423_095549

The last thing I bought for myself in Cambodia was this cute daisy jumpsuit. I just had to get it because you know, I am Daisy… I got it for 5 dollars. And it’s adorable and comforable, I love it. Jumpsuits are the best thing ever.

In the end I still ended up with a way too heavy backpack full of clothes that I don’t really need… But I love everything that I bought and I’m really happy with everything!

Ofcourse I also bought some souvenirs for my family and friends as the tshirts, scarfs, magnets, keychains and a little statue of Angkor Wat for my room. I’m happy, my bank account is not so happy. Oh well…

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

TIME TO GO HOME | Travel Diary

After almost two months of travelling in South East Asia it was time to go back home. Wednesday April 19th 2017 was the day I left Cambodia. I flew early in the morning from Siem Reap to Bangkok. There I had to wait for 8 hours for my flight to Singapore from where I eventually would fly to Amsterdam.

20170419_184204

It was a long day and flight. The only thing that made me really happy was that I got two times dinner. The love for food is huge. And I had an amazing seat in the airplane with loads of space for my legs.

18057176_1362676867111353_7647287687923710510_n

At 7 in the morning I arrived at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. My mom and dad were waiting there for me, I was really happy to see them! 🙂 I’m really happy to be back home safe and see my family again. It’s also so weird to be back, it seemed like everything was changed. Probably just because you haven’t seen it in so long.

While I’m writing this, I’m already home for longer than a week. It’s cold in the Netherlands and I miss the warmth of Asia, but I’m happy that I can see my family and friends again when I want to. I love travelling, and it is one of the best experiences in life, but (really cheesy) home is where the heart is.

As a nice ending of my trip I would like to share my favorite photos I posted on Instagram. I don’t know why, but I just like scrolling back in my Instagram and see all the great things I experienced and seen there.

Travelling through SE Asia was amazing, I had the best time there. It felt like home, the people were so kind and I met the most amazing people there from all over the world. I learned a lot, I got a lot of new and great experiences and I made lots of new friends. I’m definetly going to miss it, in fact I miss it already. But it’s good to be home.

Impressive Angkor Wat | Travel Diary

My last three days in Siem Reap I went to visit the Angkor Wat temples.

SUNDAY – DAY 1

First day of Angkor Wat! The evening before I met a girl in my hostel with whom I’m going to Angkor Wat for three days. In the morning we rented some bikes and bumped into this guy from our hostel. Eventually we ended up going with the three of us, that was great! 

We first had to go to the ticket center, where we had to take a picture and got our own personal ticket for Angkor Wat. It was still the Khmer New Year and all the Cambodians went to the temples. The roads were crowded, full with trucks with people in the back who were shooting at everyone with their water guns. Very refreshing as it was 35 degrees again. There were also lots of parties and festivals going on around the temples. 

All the temples were so impressive and beautiful. The most famous one is Angkor Wat, and ofcourse that one was really crowded. The funny thing was that the whole temple complex was mostly full with Cambodians. We were mostly the only western people there. I loved it! We already saw so much and had so many impressions and this was only the first day!

MONDAY – DAY 2

We had to wake up really early in the morning because our tuktuk driver came pick us up at 4.30 in the morning. Crazy early, but the sunrise was is worth it. I’ve never seen a sunrise in my life (as in waking up early for it and sitting down to see it in peace), it was one of the best experiences in my life. It was wonderfull how you slowly saw the sun coming and how you felt the temperature rising. I don’t understand why I’ve never done it before because it is so magical, beautiful and amazing. (Ps, probably because I love sleeping too much) 

After the sunrise we went back to our tuktuk driver. We couldn’t find him at first, but after a while we found the guys sleeping in this hammock. I need one too, it looked really comfortable.

We visited loads of temples, honestly I can’t really remember which because I only had like 4 hours of sleep and was so tired. But they were all really beautiful and I loved it. We did the big tour, with a few temples from the small tour so we had seen all the highlights from Angkor Wat. We’ve all so visited some temples that weren’t so touristic (also maybe because it was 7 in the morning ). It is all just so impressive, but I hope that pictures say more than words. I especially loved the jungle Indiana Jones temple, but sadly everyone loved that one so it was really crowded. Still definitely one of my favorites.

We came back in the afternoon and after some naps we had some street food at my favorite street food lady. She is an amazing cook. 

I also got this beautiful henna tattoo, I love it. In the evening we did some cocktails and went out with two guys that we met in the hostel and went to Angkor Wat with on the first day. It was so funny, we ended up in the club with only Cambodians. Really blending in here.

TUESDAY – DAY 3

My last day in Cambodia! In the morning/noon we went to the market for some shopping. We had some great bargain deals. 

In the afternoon we went to Angkor Wat again to see the sunset at the Phnom Bakheng temple. Loads of people wanted to there, and they only allow 300 people to go up. So we had to wait for a long time, kind of already gave up that we would see it. Luckily a few people came down and we could get up! It was quite cloudy, but still really beautiful. I love sunsets, but the sunrise was still the best thing ever. 

In the evening I had dinner for the last time at my favorite street food place.  Loved how she keeps recognising me, going to miss my food women. She was amazing.

After that we went to the night market, you can say I’m quite addicted to markets. I like it, but my bank account doesn’t haha. 

Well that was my Asian adventure.  Wednesday morning I’m flying back home. 

I will write a diary about my journey home, and also about my favorite moments and experiences. I’m really happy that I did it, and so greatfull that I had the possibility to experience something so amazing like this. It’s been a week or so since I’m home, yes I am really lazy with writing, but I’m missing it already. 

I hope you enjoyed all my travel diary posts about my journey. I definitely did and I’m happy that I have lots posts to read back to. 

Thank you for visiting! Hope you have an amazing day 🙂 xxxxxx

Khmer New Year in Siem Reap | Travel Diary

On Friday I left Phnom Penh to go to Siem Reap. The Khmer New Year had already started a bit and all the locals left Phnom Penh to go back to their families. Most buses were full, but gladly I could still get a ticket. It was a 5 or 6 hour long ride with only locals.

I arrived in the afternoon in Siem Reap. It was already quite crowded and a lot of Cambodians were already celebrating New Year.

In the hostel I met three girls from Denmark, with whom I went for some dinner. We had great streetfood, fried rice or noodles with egg. Afterwards we went to the Pub Street where the New year parties were. On our way we already got a lot of baby powder in our face and water. We found this street cocktail bar, where we had a few drinks and also met some others. There was also this cute Cambodian kid that kept throwing baby powder at us, so cute. It was loads of fun.

I also found these ice rolls that you see a lot on facebook, it was amazing!

Saturday, well… Honestly I didn’t really do anything. I slept till 11 or something, had some banana pancakes for breakfast and then I went to the market where I bought a dress for Angkor Wat and the last souvenirs.

After that I had lunch with the girls and we had a pool day. That was really needed though, because it was like 40 degrees.

In the evening we went for some street food again, trying not to get baby powder over us. Well, ofcourse I ended up being the one full with baby powder. The guy behind the bar at our hostel looked a bit weird at me. Oh well…

The next days I went to Angkor Wat, but I will write another post about that. Angkor Wat deserves to have a post on his own.

Thanks for reading, have a nice day!

Alone in Phnom Penh | Travel Diary

Tuesday morning I left Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam really early by bus to start my adventure in Cambodia. First time I was travelling completely on my own. Scary but also really exciting.

My bus left around 8.30 am from Vietnam. It would take around 7 hours to go to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. 

The drive was really long. The only stops we made were at the Vietnamese border, Cambodian border and in a restaurant to wait for the passports. It was an interesting process. First we had to give our passports to the guide of the bus, with extra money for the visa and him. Then we had to go out of the bus, and just wait. They didn’t tell us anything, no one knew what was going on. We got our passports back and had to go back in the bus, that brought us to the Cambodian border. There we had to leave the bus again and give our passports to a man. Then we left with the bus to the restaurant, and the man with the passports was gone. There we waited for the passports that came by motor bike. After that it was time to go further to Phnom Penh.

I arrived there in the afternoon. I decided to go for a little stroll to a temple, and after that I ended up on after night market where I had some dinner.

On Wednesday I went to the Killing Fields with a tuk tuk. The driver gave me this mouth thing, because there was so much smog. Very Asian.

The Killing Fields were very impressive. It’s horrible, and it was really sad to hear and see everything that happened. 

After a quick lunch, I visited the Tuol Sleng Museum. The old prison from the time the Khmer Rouge was there. Also that was horrible to see. So much pain.

Thursday morning I went to the market where I bought a lot of souvenirs for my family. 

After that I went to the Cambodian National Museum, but I didn’t really like it. It was mostly statues of Buddha’s. 

Sadly it started raining really bad so I decided to go back to the hostel. I had some lunch and when it stopped I went out for a Cambodian ice coffee from a street food market with someone from my hostel. It was really good. We just have a little wander through Phnom Penh. And I finally saw the Royal Palace.

In the evening I went out for some drinks and dinner.

The next day we went for some coffee again with a few. After that I had to leave with the bus to go to Siem Reap. The Khmer new year had already started a bit and Phnom Penh was changing into a ghost city.
