OOTD | My 18th birthday

Hey guys,
I am officially an adult now (ahum..), last Friday I became 18! Honestly I didn’t really had the birthday excitement, maybe that’s because of that I didn’t celebrated my birthday until the next day. Friday I went to my niece her birthday who celebrated her 22th birthday, always funny when I am at her birthday and everyone realises that we were born at the same date and hasty congratulates me too.
Saturday my family came over and ate with us, we barbequed which was so nice with the heat haha! But it was quite nice even though everyone was really sweaty because of the heat wave. Those who visited were also really spoiling me! I thought it was a nice and fun day!

MAKE-UP | Mac See Sheer

Hey guys!

I bought my third mac lipstick today, so now I have two lipsticks.. I lost my Ruby Woo lipstick (Sad face)! I really hope it will show up someday and I am thinking about ordering it again since it’s the best long-lasting red lipstick. Anyway, I was looking for a nice everyday lipstick, which wasn’t pink. I don’t know why but I don’t think pink looks good on me, so I searched for a toned down red. When I was looking by the lipsticks at the mac counter at douglas two lipsticks caught my eye, Cosmo and See sheer. I chose see sheer, since it’s for me a my lips but better shade and it’s an uplifting colour.
Sea sheer is a lustre lipstick from mac, it looks quite bright but goes on sheer. It’s comfortable at the lips, but it doesn’t last very long. I am really happy with it, it’s a nice throw in the bag/fits with everything kind of colour!

Let me know what your favourite everyday lipstick and if you have any recommendations!

SHOPPING | Zara summer sale shoplog

Hey guys!

Saturday I went sale shopping in the Zara! I absolutely love their clothes, but it’s always a bit pricey and that’s why I love their second sale. I don’t get why people always say they can’t find anything in the second sale, I thought they kind of had everything they had in the first sale.

Firs item is a really, REALLY oversized sweater, it’s almost a dress. Most people always laugh at me because I always check the sweaters in the sale. In mine opinion, sale is the best time to check out the sweaters. This one was reduced too 10 euros! Instead of paying 40 euro, which is a normal price for a sweater! I am so happy with it, you can never have enough cosy sweaters (especially in the Netherlands).

The second item is a checked blouse, which was 10 euros. I think you can never have enough checked blouses, and I didn’t actually had anyone left which I fitted (shocker).

And lastly my favourite purchases, a really cute jumpsuit! I absolutely love the pattern and I love the way it fits, and it was only 15 euro. I saw this one before the sale and I loved it already, but the price held me back. I was so happy to see this one in the sale!

So yes that was everything for that day, there is probably coming more since I am going to Amsterdam next week! Don’t you just love the sale?

LIFESTYLE | Starting to workout

Hey guys! 

First of all, I am sorry for my long, long absence. My school takes a lot of my time now, I just finished a big project and I have now 2 weeks of school to go until I have my unofficial vacation. I actually thought that I had school until 21 July and so did my teachers. Apparently after the project we had 3 weeks left and so all the really big end assignments just get squeezed into those weeks.

Any ways, I am really proud to say I am going to a sport school. I am one of those kind of people who really, really don’t like working out, especially not when other people are watching you. For the last months I wanted to work out but I thought I could just do it on my own, start running or do workouts at home. Well, that didn’t workout. I did really run a few times, but I just didn’t had any motivation.

So if I wanted to workout I made sure I didn’t had any excuses.

  • The sport school is a 7-minute walk from my house.
  • I can go with my mom who goes there too and so she can push me there.
  • There is a really relaxing environment and people are not watching or bothering you.
Yeah go me! I am going to be a really anti-social person there, but at least I am doing something. 

My introduction les is on Saturday at Health Works and no I am not excited, but I am sort of proud at myself for doing it. They have also lessons like yoga or spinning, so maybe I will try out the lessons too. I hear a lot of good things of yoga and that it’s fun and good for you, so who knows? Maybe I will get excited about working out someday.  

Let me know if you have any tips for this new sport school member(?) to get motivated and if you are also one of those kind of people who don’t like sport!

MUSIC | Twin forks

 Lately I am totally having the summer vibes, which comes with happy and good-feeling music. Normally with this weather I will listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd, because he makes the ultimate summer music. But I always do that thing that I listen to one album over and over again and then I start to hate it, and I don’t want to hate Lynyrd Skynyrd because he just doesn’t deserve that.

I started to look for other bands, which is hard when you can never remember names of bands. However, one band stuck to me and it’s very rare for me to actually remember the lyrics, so I thought let share them with you!
 I found out about Twin forks by listening the soundtrack of Reign (TV-Series), the song Back to you was in the playlist and it was such a catching rhythm! It became stuck in my head and from that moment on I knew it was a band for me.
