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

Go Alone

received_1049992518399259

Hi everyone,

Since I have a gap year, I have a lot of time. Of course I have my job and write for my blog, but I still have a lot of time. I realised that there are a lot of activities that you can do on your own! On the one hand it can be strange in the beginning, but on the other hand you see that you do not need another person to do fun things with and that it is fine to do things on your own. Personally I do not mind going shopping on my own, I see it as ‘me time’ and every person needs me time! That you undertake activities on your own does not mean you are lonely, you are just an independert human being. I will list my favorite alone activities down below!

Shopping 

I love shopping on my own. Especially because I can stay in the stores as long as I want to and go to the stores that I want to all at ease. The only disadvantage for me is that I am very doubtful and really love having a second opinion.

Go for a walk

This is also a perfect activity to do on your own. You can just enjoy the nature around you, have deep thoughts or of course just think about nothing.

Go to the gym

When I first started going to the gym I never wanted to go on my own. I always went with a friend because I just did not like going alone. But now, I go on my own all the time. I mean you go to the gym for yourself right, not for anyone else.

Movies 

Most of the time people go watch a movie together, but why could you not go on your own? I did it once (One Direction This is Us haha, no one wanted to go with me so I decided I would just go alone) and it was not weird at all. If there is a movie that you really want to see but there is no one who wants to go with you, just go alone and enjoy the movie.

Theater

This is almost the same as the movies. Why not? Shortly I am going to try this one for the first time!

Travel

This is a very good activity to get independent! It scares me a bit to go travel alone, but it is also a great experience. And remember you don’t have to go to a far destination, you can also do a day city trip in your own county or a weekend city trip.

Dinner

I have never done this, but going out dining on your own is also great. Maybe it feels weird in the beginning, because it is not ‘normal’, but I do not see the problem. Just do it if you want to!

Clubbing

Once I have read that there are people who go clubbing on their own. I would not really try this because I am just not a person for clubbing, let alone on my own haha.

Well that is everything for so far. Ofcourse there is a lot more, like reading a good book, watching series in bed and baking cookies! It may seem weird or scary for the first time, but maybe you enjoy it when you try it. You never know!

Thank you very much for reading and have a nice day!

My favorite sandwiches & how to make them

In the Netherlands it is a habit to eat bread with something like peanut butter or cheese on it as lunch. But I am more a fan of sandwiches. I’ve got a few that I really like and often make, so I’m going to share them with you!

Sandwich Brie & Arugula

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • 2 pieces of bread (white or brown, what you prefer)
  • Brie
  • Arugula
  • Honey
  • Sandwich toaster / pan to bake it in

It’s very simple. You put some arugula on the bread, on top of that as much brie as you like and on top of that you put some honey to sweeten it a bit. Than you put the other piece of bread on top of that all and you put it in the sandwich toaster. When the bread is crunchy the sandwich is ready!

Sandwich Tomato & Mozerella 

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • Bread with Italian specie
  • Tomato
  • Mozerella
  • Pesto
  • Slice of chicken
  • Toaster of an oven

On the bread you put some Pesto, a slice of chicken and a tomato with Mozerella on top. Then you put the the sandwich in the toaster and there you have a Mozerella and tomato sandwich!

Sandwich Salmon & Cream cheese

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • Bread
  • Salmon
  • Lettuce
  • Cream cheese
  • Mustard-dill sauce

On the bread you smear some cream cheese, on top of that some lettuce, salmon and sauce. Very simple but delicious sandwich!

Old school sandwich Grilled Cheese

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • 2 pieces of bread
  • Cheese (emmentaler or gouda)
  • Ham
  • Sandwich toaster / pan to bake it in
  • (Optional) Tomato ketchup

You lay the cheese on the bread and on top of the cheese you put a slice of ham. The cheese that is falling out of the bread, you can wrap around the ham. Then you put the other slice of bread on top of everything and put it in the sandwich toaster. When the bread is crunchy and the cheese is melted, your sandwich is ready! Enjoy!

Sandwich Goat Cheese

I have some different ways of making this sandwich. The first one is the simple Goat Cheese sandwich: bread, lettuce, goat cheese and honey. The second one is more comprehensive (Google translate says it’s the word that I was searching for so okay), I will describe that one below.

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • Bread/sandwich, I like a dark one with some seeds.
  • Lettuce (any kind)
  • Bacon
  • Goat Cheese
  • Honey
  • Some nuts or seeds

Okay so on the picture above, you see the simple version. But it’s is almost the same, the only difference is that you have to put more things on the second sandwich. Oh and I like to warm up my bacon en goat cheese in the oven before I put it on my bread.


Here is the better version of my goat cheese sandwich! Very delicious with a latte machiatto.

I hope you have some inspiration for sandwiches now!

Thankyou so much for reading!
