Essie sole mate review

Hi guys

i'm not the type of person that really likes to paint their nails every single day because I'm not so good at painting my nails. That's why it's a struggle every time I need to do it, but I still do it because I think it looks beautiful. It gives you an extra accesoiry and it's perfect for hiding your nails because we all have nails that aren't perfectly in shape, or at least I don't. I only had one Essie nail polish but it was a top coat, so not a base coat so I didn't know what to think from Essie. Because everyone is talking about Essie I really wanted to try one, I personally think it's a lot of money for one nailpolish but lately I found 3 for 20 euros so I thought, let's try it. I had picked a lovely purple and 2 others. But today I'm going to talk about only the purple one. It's a burgundy colour and I absolutely love it! It is such a lovely winter/ spring colour and it's also a shade that goes with a lot of outfits so it was a very good buy! This is what the Essie Sole Mate looks like.

Like I said, I'm not so good at painting my nails but it's actually really easy with an Essie nail polish, because it slides over very easily. Also my advice for girls who are also really bad at painting their nails: just keep trying, I started very very bad and my nails looked horrible after it while now, they look just ok, so I keep trying it, untill they're perfect!

Asos wishlist!

Hi everybody

i've been seeing some nice clothes on Asos lately, so I thought I would do a wishlist! Here it is, I hope you enjoy!

                                                                        Black shirt

For people with the same size as me, these clothes will be perfect for you! They're all available in small sizes so you don't need to worry! A little advice: If you're 'petite' like me, don't go for too long skirt/dresses because it will make you look even smaller and most of the time it will be lower on you than it looks on the picture. I think Asos is a perfect site if you are small or big or i don't know because they have a lot of clothes for a lot of sizes. They also have little departments like 'petite' like me, 'tall', 'maternity',... 

This was my wishlist! See you next week! Sorry for the small blog post but I'm and I will be very busy with school..

Starting to work out!

Hi everyone

so lately I've been trying to work out a lot more then I used to. Because i don't play sports i'm not in a good shape so one day I said to myself, 'you need to change that', so I did. I'm the type of person that doesn't like to work out at all because I mostly feel sweaty and gross after it. The first step to start for me is to set yourself a goal. My goal was to have a nice summer body when I'm on vacation or something. Because my friend is in a very good shape and i'm literally so jealous of her, I set my goal to get the same shape as her. When you have a goal it's really easier because you know what you want and you can really push yourself to accomplish your goal. I know every begin is difficult but once you get on it, it will go easier and easier every time. I'm not saying that you're never going to skip your exercise again but after a few times it's just like a routine. It will be something that you need to do in your day, like showering or brushing your teeth (I know ,stupid examples). Because i'm in a very bad shape, I started 'easy' for some people. You can't push yourself too much in the beginning because you will probably get muscule pain the next day and you'll probably just skip your workout. I also started 'easy' because I just couldn't handle it. To help me with my 'easy' workout I found the app: the seven minute workout. It's such a nice app and it's a workout that is possible for me to do, so it was the perfect app for me. In the app you need to do 12 exercises, you need to do each exercise for 30 seconds and then you get 10 seconds to get ready for the next one. That's a total of almost seven minutes. Because i'm doing these exercises already a few times I searched on the internet and found some other exercises to get in shape. So I used the same principle but I changed the exercises. You can change it the way it works the best for you. You can add some exercises or leave some behind. I also added a few exercises to make my bottom look good so I will put the link down below (:

This is what the app looks like and there is a voice that motivates you or says how long you need to do that exercise. You can change your voice to a female voice or a male voice, whatever you prefer.

  If you want to know which exercises I sometimes do instead of the ones on the app, you can click here.
  I used some of these exercises to try to get a nice and lifted bottom. You want to check out those too? Click here.

I hope I helped you a little bit. For those who are in a good shape, it's probably a useless post but for the ones like me, it might be a interesting post. Thanks for reading!

Fashion/beauty haul

 Hi guys,

new collection is in the shops so I decided to go shopping! I found a few clothes and one beauty thing, something that I've been wanting for a while so now I finally got it!
I hope you enjoy reading it and have a great weekend!

The first thing I got was this gorgeous blouse from Pimkie. Black and white is really a trend now and I saw it and I really thought it was special with the zips and really something that I could where for special events or just for a school day. 
Oh gosh, I'm so happy with this shirt! I love it, it makes it so beautiful with the little collar and the see-through back. I just love it! I found it in the same shop as the black and white blouse, so it's also from Pimkie

This is the last shirt I got, it's from ONLY and it's just a normal shirt but I like the picture on it.

Every girl needs something like this. It's easy to throw on when you're at home and you're cold or in the evenings when you're somewhere else. You can also wear it to school, you just have so much possibilities with it.  By the way, it's from H&M.

The last thing I got from fashion was this jeans, just a normal jeans.

This was something I was so excited to buy! Every beauty blogger says it's a really good powder so I'm deciding to try it. I'll probably do a review on it.

That was everything. I hope you enjoyed it and thank your for reading!

My top 5 products that I use for hydrating my skin

Hi everybody

I know that winter is almost over and that I'm a bit late with this but in my country it's still freezing! It's so cold and my whole skin gets unhydrated. So because of that I'm going to show you a few products that I use to hydrate my skin.

First of all it's very important that you drink loads of water.Water prevents a dry skin by hydrating your skin. At night it's the best moment to apply a night cream because your skin can rest at night and it has the time to penetrate your skin. For you apply the night cream you can maybe first tone your face, it dries really quick and it also helps to hydrate your skin.

There are a few products that I use to hydrate my skin but these are my top 5!

This hand cream is sooo lovely! It's from The Body Shop and I know it might be small and look like it's not that much but you really don't need a lot of it. Every time I use it I only need to use a small amount and it helps my hands stay hydrated for almost the rest of the day, I probably use it like 2 times a day. Even though it hydrates your hands so well, it doesn't feel sticky like most hand creams do.  Plus it smells amazing, so I think this hand cream is one of my favs for the winter. In summer I use another one because then I don't need to have such a hydrating hand cream.

This is a hydrating cream for your face from Avène. I can't say much about it because it's just a good one because it also hydrates very well. The only thing I dislike about it is that the smell isn't that good, it doesn't smell bad but also not so good.

For lip balms I chose two because I both absolutely love these but I use them both on a different time a day. This lip balm from Labello (Velvet Rose) I use only in the morning and at night because I think it's very hydrating and it really does a good job, but it doesn't look that good if you have this on your lips. You can see your dry lips even better when you have it on but it only needs a few minutes to hydrate your lips and make your lips look beautiful. But because it doesn't look good in the first minutes I only use it in the morning/evening when I'm still at home or when I'm on my way to school. 

This lip balm from Maybelline ( Baby Lips) is the lip balm I use when I'm at school or when I'm not at home. This is also a really good, hydrating lip balm and when you put it on, your lips look hydrated and it also gives you a little bit of shimmer.

This helped me a lot in the winter. Nivea is really perfect for hydrating your whole body and on any very dry spots. I had the flu twice so my nose was really red and dry from using so much tissues. I'm sure everybody knows the feeling on your nose when you have a cold or something.
But in winter Nivea helped my skin a lot. This is perfect for dry places on your whole body like your arms, your legs or your feet. 

What are your top 5 products that you used during winter time?
Thank you for reading!

Things you can get your girl for valentines day

Hi guys

So, two weeks from now it's Valentines day and that means that it would be lovely if you'ld get something for her/him for Valentines day to express your love. It might be a difficult thing because when you're in a long relationship, it's hard to still surprise you boy/girlfriend with a gift. So I searched for some lovely, sweet and personal gifts you can give to your loved one.

- You might get him/her to the place you first met or a place that is special to you two. If you don't have a place like this, you can just take him/her to a lovely restaurant that serves food that you both like.

- This might be something for guys, or if your girlfriend particulary loves wine, you can send them a gift every day. It's nice to receive something that you can keep or you regulary get. This is an example of it. So you can chose which beer you send him every month and you can chose how many months you want to send it to him/her. amazingclubs

- If your boyfriend likes to go to a game, you can buy tickets for it to go with you to the game. It's something that he likes and you can also spend your time with him.

- If you don't want to go to a restaurant, you can cook a meal yourself. It's sweet and you don't even have to cook a very difficult good looking meal, you can also just go for something easy. He might even help you to cook the dinner together which is even more romantic. You can also order something. You can make it a little bit romantic and take care for it that everyone in the house is gone so you can have a romantic dinner for two.

-  Make a coupon code of something you would like to do together sometime. If it's not the right time now, he/she'll still have his coupon code for another time.

- You can also just give something that he/she is interested in. If your girlfriend is interested in makeup, you can listen if she might say something like: ' Oh, this product is empty and I really loved it' or ' I would really want to buy it, but I've just bought something else so I need to wait a little bit longer'. She'll appreciate that you remember what she said and also that she got something that she can really enjoy having it. Girls also like to get jewelry For boys it's the same.

- Roses and chocolate. I know these ones are old-fashioned but woman always love to get things like that.

- Girls also like to receive things with an emotional side on it. Something personal, like a card, pictures,...

- There's nothing more that makes a girl feel happy than boy complimenting her. Women love to get complements like: You look beautiful, sexy, I love you so much,.. This is very easy but it can make a woman feels very happy.

- You can  write your boyfriend/girlfriend some cards for times she feels lucky, sad, happy, unconfident,...

So these are just a few examples of things you can do on Valentines Day! I hope you enjoyed reading it and you got some inspiration for your own Valentines day! Goodluck and thank you!

My Drugstore wishlist

Hi guys

lately I've been looking for some sites that sell cheap but good makeup. I immediately found Drugstore.com so I checked it out and I saw that they really have good makeup for low prices. The only thing I dislike about it is that they don't deliver to my country so I can't order anything... But if you live in America you can order something from it. So here are a few things I'ld buy if I'ld live in America.

You can also buy some makeup from expensiver brands at the same time. Brands like Nars, Too Faced, Bare minerals, Urban Decay,...

The first thing is a primer from maybelline

Then a bronzer from Rimmel

A BB cream from maybelline

A pressend powder from Rimmel

A beautiful eyeshadow from Maybelline (again)

And last but definitely not least, the core collections from REAL TECHNIQUES

I really would love to get these products!

Thank you all for reading!

My storage

Hi guys

this is my FIRST blog post with my new camera! It's the Nikon D5100 and I really love the quality, it also has a lot of effects and even though it looks like a difficult camera to work with, they explained it very well in the user guide. The only thing I dislike about it, is that when it's a little bit dark or you don't use natural light, the quality reduces immediately. But even though I really like it!
Now I'm going to talk about my storage, my beauty products storage, I'm going to show you some of my essentials and where and how I store it. So I don't own a lot of makeup, that's why I'm taking you guys on my adventure where we discover and try new makeup/beauty products. One of the reasons I don't own a lot of makeup is because I'm 16, so I'm still very young and I don't want to cover my whole face and put all things on it, I still want it to 'rest' a little bit until I'm older. The second reason is because I don't get a lot money. I get pocket money so that's the only money I can spend, my other  money is on the bank because I also want to save money. With that pocket money I need to pay my phone bills and I need to buy clothes and then I don't have a lot money left to buy makeup. So no, I don't own lots of makeup like those big bloggers like Zoe(lla), Tanya Burr, Lauren Conrad. I just want you guys to come with me on our little adventure.
So this is how I storage my beauty products, these are some things I use everyday, I still have some bits and bobs on different places but these are some things I use daily.

So this is my makeup I use pretty much. That's why it is in a little pot so I can grab some things out of it when I'm getting ready.

Big stuff like deodorant, makeup-remover,.. I just put on my desk like this.

Then I bought this little storage box where I put my perfume, nail polishes, handcremes, and other small things. You can buy this pretty much everywhere, I bought this in a drugstore shop (For dutch people: Blokker) but there are also really pretty storage stuff at Ikea.

Then I also put some other things in small boxes, these are just boxes that I got for a birthday or just with a product so I just put some other things in it.

My earrings and necklaces I put on a beautiful doll and the heart where I put all my earrings on is from Christmas, you can see it in a previous blog post (:

You saw a difference in the quality? ((((((:
I hope so!
I really hope you guys enjoyed it and I hope you're having a lovely day!
