Hi girls! Happy new week! It’s December, time flies so fast! Especially during this time of the year I am always struggling what to wear. It’s definitely getting colder outside but it’s not winter everyday yet. Guess it’s always the choice between dressing too cold or too warm these days….

Today’s inspiration: more coats!

The chill is real. And if there’s one thing I love most about the colder days, then it must be wrapping myself up in a big ass, cosy, comfortable and above all: warm coat. How’s that for you? I’ve discovered that Otto.nl has so many pieces that are super trending this season. Let…

Review: Frank Body Original Body Scrub

From an early age I’ve been deeply interested in beauty and skin care. It was my mom, introducing me to her daily skin care routine that first sparked this interest. I can always remember the feeling of wanting to know how to take care of my skin, why you should…

SkinCeuticals review

Review: SkinCeuticals

by

Let’s talk about skincare once again. Now that I’m in my late 20s and turning 28 this Wednesday (oh my!), I’m focusing more and more on skincare rather than make-up. I believe investing in great skincare is worth so much more the money than spending loads on cosmetics to cover…

Breakouts don’t only happen to teenagers. After having much trouble with acne during my puberty, acne hit me again in my mid-20s. To some extent it was due to my weight gain, which was part of my eating disorder recovery. But my genes played a big role too. My mother struggled with…

Of all colors red is my favorite color to wear. In general. It has always been. Red is often the color chosen by someone outgoing (check), vigorous (check) and hilarious (oh yeah, check). It goes with an ambitious nature (check) but those who choose it can be abrupt at times (check), determined to get all they…

Maxi skirt

For quite some time I have been craving a black maxi skirt or a somewhere below pencil one with interesting ruffles. You know, a skirt that makes people ask: I love your skirt, where is it from? As time passed and the obsession kind of passed away too, I unexpectedly ran…
