Where to eat: Budapest | Best(ies) Lunch

20170611_200842

Recently I visited the lovely city Budapest, Hungary with my best friend. A while ago, I posted this post, where I came with the idea to try out new restaurants and write about it. Of course, we did that in Budapest too!

4bro downtown

The first restaurant where we ate is called 4bro downtown, after looking it up on the internet I discovered it is actually a night club too. Our hostel was across of a little street where this place was. Actually, the whole street was full of cute places like this!

We both ordered the club sandwich, we just came out of the plane and were really hungry. It was really good, the sandwich was quite big and filled with vegetables, egg, and chicken. Very tasty! The sandwich came with these tasty potato fries, whom also was really good.  The price for the sandwich was alright, but the rest of the food was quite expensive for Budapest I think.

The ambiance at 4bro downtown was also great, the only disadvantage was that the music was really loud. We just couldn’t hear each other talking, what was quite annoying. But we had a great lunch!

0.75 bar & bistro

In the evening we had dinner at this place called 0.75 bar & bistro, where they mostly served tapas and wine. The restaurant was on the square where the beautiful St Stefanus Basilica was.

We both didn’t order tapas, I went for the goulash soup and Gaby ordered a salad. My goulash was really nice, I loved it! Also, I had this really tasty drink, elderflower lemonade, it was so good! Afterwards, we had some cocktails, Gaby had a mojito and I had a watermelon cocktail. I really enjoyed this dinner.

The restaurant was nice, they had good food and drinks. Also the staff was alright, something went wrong with our order but eventually they fixed it!

Trattoria Gozsdu

Our last dinner we ate at an Italian restaurant, in the same cute street as the 4bro downtown.

The restaurant was really nice, and they had this beautiful quote on the wall saying: “If life hands you lemons, make limoncello”. That’s the spirit!

Gaby ordered this lovely pasta, and I went for the pizza. And it was so good! They also had a wide choice of wines, I ordered a Hugo and got a really nice looking glass with lemon and mint leaves.

I really liked this restaurant. The food, staff, and ambiance were amazing!

Actually, I like all the places where we ate! The only disadvantage of eating in Budapest, what I also experienced when I was visiting Prague last year, is that they include the service cost in the bill. They add 20% of the bill to it. Mostly it isn’t a lot, but I find it quite annoying that they push me to pay a service cost and that I can’t choose for myself if I want to give them a tip or not. But that’s all :). It was funny though, Gaby and I calculated the bill of the last restaurant and came to the conclusion that we had the exact amount of Hungarian money left to pay it in cash, and then there was the extra service cost. Oh well.

We had a great time and some love dinners. If you’re in doubt to visit Budapest, it is totally worth it!

Have a lovely day! xx

KIKO Eyeshadows | Shoplog

IMG_5826.JPG

Oops, I did it again…

The sale is everywhere, and when I saw all the discount on eyeshadows at KIKO, I just had to get some. For a while now I was thinking about buying some more colorful colors, as I mostly only own basic nude colors. So when I saw all these colors at KIKO, I decided to buy a few. I don’t know the exact prices anymore, but they were all between €2 and €4!

This is such a beautiful blue, it’s the perfect color for a unicorn or mermaid inspired look. Well, that is also quite the reason why I bought these, for me “weird colors”. This is the color 29 from the smart eyeshadow line.

Normally, green is not really my color. But this green is so glowy! This is also really a unicorn green. It reminds me of the green that’s in de Unicorn Highlighter! This is color 84 from the High Pigment Wet and Dry Eyeshadow line. It is already pigmented, used dry. But when you use it wet, it gets more pigmented and also a beautiful glow.

I couldn’t resist this lovely pink color. It’s perfect for a romantic all pink makeup look! It’s color 18 from the smart eyeshadow line.

How beautiful is this eyeshadow! Look at the pattern, the color, the glitters, the glow. I love it so much, this is definitely my favorite purchase! It’s color 224 from the Water Eyeshadow line.

As last I got this beautiful glittery blue eyeshadow stick. Does it stand out that I only have bought glitter eyeshadows? It’s really pigmented. It’s color 112 from the Eyetech Look Eyeshadow line. Isn’t KIKO so original with their names for the colors?

I’m really happy with all my new eyeshadow colors, and also really excited to play with them! Can’t wait to share some new colorful looks with you!

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

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

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!

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

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!

CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Matte

20170117_162043

Today I want to share with you this beautiful pink/red lipstick from CHANEL. It’s my first and only high end product. And it’s so beautiful, so luxuriance and so special.

20170117_161733

The design is amazing! You can click the gold part into the black case. At first I was searching like huh how does this go open, but when you get it it is so much fun how it clicks in and out.

20170117_161820

The color is a beautitful red/pink shade. The lipstick also feels very soft on the lips, with applying it goes so smooth and soft. It also doens’t dry your lips out at all, whilst it is a matte lipstick! Probably the reason why it’s called Rouge Allure Velvet Matte. (edit: saw that I totally forgot to mention what the colorshade was: 347 LA MERVEILLEUSE)

20170117_16265820170117_162755

This was the look I was wearing with the beautiful lipstick. Flawless skin, beautiful glow, big lashes and bold lips. I love it, it’s so ‘natural , yet very classy and timeless. And that all because of a beautiful lipstick. Thanks Chanel, it’s amazing.

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

Ultimate Travelist

20170117_132006

When you read this I’m probably on my way to London, or already there. I’m so excited, I always wanted to visit London and now I’m finally going to! To stay in the travel mood, I would like to share this book with you. I got this as a present from my uncle with Sinterklaas.

20170117_132025

It’s written by Lonely Planet, they ranked the best 500 places in the world. Of course this is personal for everyone, but it’s fun to read. They added a description for every place and for the most also a photo. As you can see in the photo is Angkor Wat in Cambodia number one. I’m hoping to visit it this year!

20170117_132127

I love how the book gives me ideas of futur destinations to travel to. The other thing that I really like is spotting places in the book that I’ve visit. That’s so fun to see. Among other things: 07 Colosseum, 16 Sagrada Familia, 25 Pyramids of Giza, 26 Piazza San Marco, 34 Charles Bridge, 37 Louvre, 40 Eiffel Tower, 44 Old Town Square Prague. Even places in the Netherlands as Anne Frank House and Prinsengracht Canal (As the Anne Frank House is in the Prinsengracht)

20170117_132038

You also get this map with the top 100. You can hang it on the wall and pin the places you’ve visited. I would totally do this, but I already have another worldmap hanging where I pin my places.

I’m really happy with my book, I look in it like everyday. All those beautiful places, I can’t wait to visit them all. But first… London!

I’ve written some posts and planned them, hope I have internet so it works!

Thank you for visiting, have a lovely day!!

Freedom Blush Palette | Review

IMG_4667.JPG

The Freedom Pro Blush Palette Peach and Baked is a beautiful palette. I have it for a while now, but never really used it. ( Yet again this was a “ohmygod so cute I need this let’s buy this but totally forget about it”product, I need help) The only color I used is the shiny pink one in the middle because it is a sheer color.

IMG_4670.JPG

The palette contains 6 peachy blushes, one pink sheer glittery blush and one highlighter color. The 6 colors are really pigmented, and some are a little bit too orange, it shocked me. As I told in the intro, the pink sheer color is my favorite. The blushes feel really soft on the skin, and they apply very easily.

IMG_4672.JPG

These are the first three colors on the left. Sadly they don’t have names. But as you can see they are really pigmented and orange/brownie (well the last two). The two orange/brown colors aren’t really what I like, but the first pink/rose color is a beauty. Maybe I am going to wear that one more often.

IMG_4674.JPG

Here are the two colors in the middle. As you can see they aren’t as pigmented as the other colors, but I like that for a blush. I’m always scared that I end up with way too much blush on my cheeks and look like a clown. In my opinion, is the first one more of a highlighter and the second one is a beautiful sheer glowy blush. My favorite.

IMG_4675.JPG

The last three colors! These are more on the orange/pink/red side. Really love the first two, the last one is a bit too orange for me.

It’s a lovely palette, with a lot of different colors. It’s perfect when you love peachy blushed and when you are warm toned. Also, the price is very nice, only 7 euro! As I am more of a cold toned person, I could better go for the other blush palette by Freedom. But I still think it’s a beautiful palette, and I will try to use it more often!

Ps. for the Dutchies, here is the link to it on Boozyshop. It’s also available at Kruidvat.

Thanks for visiting and have a nice day!
