MUSIC | Halestorm

I want to tell you about a band and to give you an idea of my love fort hem, I am listening to the same album for 3 years and I still like it. How often do you have that? I still get excited when I hear their songs and I still listen to them on repeat.

I am talking about Halestorm, they are a female hard rock band with a female leadsinger. De band excists out lead vocalist and guitarist Lzzy Hale, the drummer and percussionist Arejay Hale, the guitarist Joe Hottinger and bassist Josh Smith. The band came together in 1998 and signed a contract by Atlantic Records in 2005. Here they released the album about what I was talking about in April 2012, called The Strange Case of… They are also going to release a new album at the end of 2014, which I am very excited about!

Halestorm is however not really popular, a lot of people don’t know who they are. I think they deserve so much more credit, since they are just totally awesome. Every time I listen to a song of them I get goose bumps, Lzzy is always singing so raw and perfect! It’s too bad they are not everybody’s kind of taste, but those who do absolutely love them!
Anyway, these are some of my favourite songs.

Q: What do you think of halestorm?


TRENDBOOK | Tartan print

Hey there!
Right now I am studying Graphic Design, this year you had to choose a direction you wanted to focus at and obviously I chose the direction styling. One of my assignments is that I have to make a TrendBook and I have to update it, so when I have to turn it in at the end of the year I have a book full trends and inspiration. I thought it might be fun to let you guys go along and show you what I did with my book, it’s probably also handy for me so I keep motivated to work on it.


SHOPPING | October Shoplog

Okay I admit it, I did it again.. I went shopping again..
I figured something out, my arms apparently grew a lot last year. All my sweaters sleeves are shrunk, how does that happen? Oh well, another excuse to spend way to much right?
I went to Rotterdam this Thursday and I went to the new H&M, which is the biggest H&M in Europe. Afterwards I visited the Monki and the Newlook. If you want to see the thing I’ve bought there, please keep reading.


MAKE-UP | L'Oréal Infallible Lipstick

Hey there!

Do you know that awkward moment when you take a sip of your drink and you see that line of lipstick on the glass, then you quickly try to wipe it away and your hand is kind of becoming a different colour? Well I do, especially when I go out.
When I go out to wherever, I don’t like to always be afraid for my lipstick wearing off weirdly. My friend recommended me the l'oréal Infallible Lipstick, when she goes out clubbing it will still be there sitting perfect on the lips the next morning. Yeah okay, it’s hard to take off, I saw that when I got home trying to wash the swatches of the different colours off.


MAKE-UP | Mac studio fix powder foundation

Hey there,

I was looking for a new foundation, which would last me the whole school day. I decided to invest in a good foundation and since I only have an hour to get ready, I wanted something quick and efficient. Also, my skin is really clearing up and it’s a lot easier to work with. I wanted something natural looking and long lasting, so I came out at mac’s studio fix powder foundation in NC30.


MUSIC | Hozier

Yesterday a friend of my told me to listen to this one artist, she sort of became obsessed with him after hearing his most popular song. So, I’ve listened to it and I thought it was quite interesting. I wasn’t really sure what I thought of it at first, but then I listened it again and I tried to understand what he was singing about. The lyrics are the biggest part what make this song so great, because you really have so much meaning to it.

Andrew Hozier-Byrne, better known as just Hozier, is an Irish Musician and the song I was talking about was Take me to church. Hozier is from Ireland's County Wicklow, which is close to Dublin. I also found out that he was born on St. Patrick’s Day in 1990 and that he’s always hearing that, so I thought I would just join the crowd and write it down.
I am really bad at giving a song a genre so I am just copying this, but his genres are blues, soul and Indie rock. Apparently he inherited his blue roots from his dad, who was always playing the blues in Dublin. Take me to church became a huge hit on YouTube in 2013 and it only went upwards from there.

Take me to church was a real statement, it makes you realize how homosexuality is still an issue and how awful it is. Here in the Netherlands homosexuality is for the most part accepted, we have a whole pride for them! We still have some black sheep’s under us of course, but you don’t really get discriminated or laughed at anymore.
This song makes me think about how it might be in other countries, how they still have a long way to go to acceptance. I think if you really try to focus on the song and the clip you have to feel the touchy feelings, you see two lovers got tracked down and beaten.

Q: Have you ever heard from this artist and what do you think about the songs?


SHOPPING | Beauty wishlist October

1. Mac Mocha blush
I am looking for a really nice natural blush which is not too pink, and this one looks absolutely stunning. I am however holding back because of the price, I think it’s possible to find a cheaper alternative.

2. Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder
This bronzer is so famous at the Internet and that makes me want to try it, don’t worry it’s not my tenth bronzer. I am actually looking for a good bronzer, which is not to orange. This seems to fit so.. Yeah.

3. Nude lip liner
I think a lip liner makes everyone’s lips look better, but I always felt that lip liners are drying. I want to give them another try and want to find a really gorgeous nude lip liner, which isn’t drying. Do you guys have any recommendations maybe?

4. Mac pro longwear concealer

Normally I don’t really wear foundation, just some concealer. However, no concealer lasts all school day. My skin is not perfect, I have dark under eye circles and a few spots here and there. I want to hide them all day long and this concealer is so hyped up, it must be good.

5. Essie nailpolish
I recently lost my Essie virginity, okay that sounds wrong. This summer I’ve tried my first Essie nail polish and it lasts so well! Normally I don’t bother with nail polish since it won’t last 2 days, Essie however lasts for 5 days. I even got complimented for my nails after a week long of wear!

6. Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal
I think a nude eye pencil in your waterline makes you look so much more awake, like you have got 2 more hours of sleep. This is again a really hyped up product, which everyone likes. I am just a faller for recommendations, okay?

7. Rimmel moisture renew lipstick spotlight beige nude delight
I don’t know why, but whenever I am looking for a nude I come out with a red. Good job, me. I saw this lipstick a few times by thebeautycrush and she said that she liked it. I normally find that a nude is too pale for me, so since she is a bit more tanned then me, her nudes might be darkes? Yes, no? It makes sense to me.
