Two printed shirts, as I wished on my June inspiration list. Colored jeans, which girl can’t get enough of these. I already owned a pink, but unfortunately because of weight loss this one got to big. I really wanted to own a mint green (see June inspiration list). I am ready for the summer.
4 days of weekend, 4 days of sun, 4 days of fun. A little view into my beautiful and stylish weekend.
1. I enjoyed this view at sunset lounge for three long days, lovely!
2. I received my first Glossybox (see previous blogpost)
3. Hotpink on a spring day.
4. Yummy breakfast with strawberries.
5. New in: outfit from my June wishlist, mintgreen jeans from LTB and beige t-shirt with golden application from Costes.
6. New in: yellow nailpolish from L’oreal (number 302).
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend? What was your weekend highlight?
So I finally received my first beautybox. I totally Glossybox forgot that I ordered it after my blog post in April about the different beauty boxes out there. Which was a good suprise, because it feels like receiving a present…love it <3…
So how does the concept work. You order the box monthly and pay 12,50 euros, you receive 5/6 beautyproducts which are based on your personal profile (style, likes, dislikes, preferences). The normal price of the beautyproducts together are somewhere between 50-100 euros. So this is a real good deal. If you write enough reviews or invite friends you even receive the box for free.
This month the theme was ‘Affordable Favorite’ which the staff of Glossybox put together.
I was absolutely excited about the products in this box, because I am already familiar with 4 of the 6 brands, and also very pleased with other products of these brands.
Zoeva – Forever Eye Crayon
This eye shadow pencil is a beautiful color, it is gray/green with a little golden sparkle in it. Definitely nice for a night out, since I don’t wear any eye shadow myself, I probably will make my best friend really happy with this one.
Garnier – Miracle Skin Perfector
A day cream and foundation in one with a sun protection, what more do you want? I was already familiar with the product, because of the commercials with Yfke Sturm, a Dutch supermodel. Ideal for the summer days, because then you really don’t want to wear a heavy foundation. I am a instant fan, because I already have a Garnier day cream which is also really light like this one. And for hot days like today I would rather not wear foundation, but wear BB cream instead.
John Frieda – Full Repair Perfect Ends Deep Infusion
I am the number one user of John Frieda products, so of course this was my number one favorite. And ideal for me, because it is a repair serum for overstyled hair (read: hair dryer, straightener). The texture is liquid which is good for applying on to the washed and wet hair.
Dr. van der Hoog – Purity cleaning wipes
Which girl doesn’t have enough cleaning wipes? I bring these babies everywhere I go, especially on day or weekend trips and holidays. You can take them on to the plane and clean absolutely everything with them, even stains in your clothes! These cleaning wipes from Dr. van der Hoog are ideal, they are quite firm and smell nice (not to strong). But most of all they don’t leave a pulling sensation on your face afterwards.
NO-AD – Aftersun Lotion
So I like the idea of putting a aftersun lotion in the May box. I am unfamiliar with the brand. I like the texture of the lotion and it feels really soft and fresh on your skin, but I wouldn’t use it. I just don’t like the smell of the product, so I wouldn’t cover my whole body in it.
Max Factor – Masterpiece Max High Volume & Definition Mascara
This one was a new experience for me. I never use Max Faxtor products, but I know the brand. I normally don’t like mascara’s whit a prickly brush, but I have to disagree with myself. This one is phenomenal, it opens up my eyelashes more than my own mascara and it makes them look longer.
I think the box exceeded my expectations. I loved 4 of the 6 products and will for sure start using these products and maybe even buy them in the future.
What do you think about the Glossybox?
Since, I wasn’t able to bring back any of my Barcelona list items. I made a new inspiration list, which involves different styles from different wishlists of the last month. I treid to think about what I really want and need, which is good for me, since then I don’t spend to much money on things I didn’t want to buy anyway…
The trends and styles I am looking for are:
*T-shirts with print
*Pastels (especially mint green)
What is on your wishlist for the next month?
Another weekend has past, but what a beautifull weekend. Finally the sun came out, I love it!
1. all about food this weekend. On Friday I made my own cupcakes and decorated them.
2. Here is the result, I know I am not a pro!
3. Dutch Limbourgian cake, yum this is the best. Home sweet home.
4. Finally I could where my new Michael Kors sunnies, together with my boyfriend in the picture…
5. Here they are in the Michael Kors box. I adore them.
6. Back at work, but wearing my peeptoe heels…yesss!
Can’t wait for more sun, more peeptoe heels, shirts, blouses, sunglasses and no with coats or jackets…
What are you wearing out in the sun today?
The new trend is all about perforated items. I bought this beige jacket (which is also sleeveless) at Stradivarius in Barcelona.
And it’s still about lace. Everywhere I go I see lace in all forms and shapes. Lace has been a trend for a while now, but I definantly think it’s still about lace. Lace is romantic and makes every outfit look more summery, I love. I bought these new lace items at Blanco and Bershka in Barcelona.
So last week I decided to ‘do-it-myself’ and transform my jeans with rather big holes into a lace item. Here is what I did…
1. Buy lace from the fabric market for only 2,50 euros.
2. Cut the lace and adjust it to the seams on the inside of the jeans, so it will cover the holes. Make a extra stitch around the holes..
3. Voila, your jeans has been transformed into a lace item within 15 minutes..and ready to wear again.
Since I been collecting laces items and probably have over 10 items in my closet with lace. How many do you have?
This weekend my girlfriends and myself visited Barcelona. To do some serious shopping, relaxing and of course get some sun. As in Holland it is still raining and very cold, we where really happy to get away for the weekend.
Here is my weekend instragram/photo diary from Barcelona with love.
1. Our view from the apartment, the Sagrada Familia
2. Barceloneta beach on a 10 minute walk from the apartment
3. Just 1/4 of our shoe gallery
4. Serious shopping at Diagonal Mar shopping centre
5. My new items…
I did find the mintgreen shirt of H&M to short, so I bought mintgreen nail polish. I didn’t find any statement necklaces or kimono’s I liked. The one thing I did bought of my Barcelona wishlist (beige perforated jacket with no sleeves – sleeveless trend). More about this in my new post. Now I’ll have to do some online shopping again…
6. View on Barcelona from the cable cart
We visited Barcelona twice now, next year we would love to visit Madrid or Florence, where would you go for a girls weekend?
