Fall essentiels shopping list

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share my must have items for fall 2017! Because let’s be honest the cosy and colder months are right behind the corner. For some of us it has probably alreay started!

So If you want to know what you MUST get for this fall, keep on reading!

  1. Shoes
    The loafer trend is not over yet! Loafers were everywhere this summer but nothing is changing for fall/winter! I found these amazing very fallish  which are on sale right now for 19.99!! Another pair I really like are these pink ones, right up my alley!

    2. Sweaters/Jumpers
    Cosy and warm knits is probably what I like most about fall! I usely go for basic colors liks black white and grey but I found this GORGEOUS striped knit. I love the rollneck and the stripes are just so flattering! Absolute love!
    sweater
    3. Bags
    I went for 2 colorful bags, I know, crazy! But there’s an explanation for it! Red will be all over this season, you can already tell by going into the stores. Red is going to be huge this fall. Since I wouldn’t neccessarily wear a red sweater I thought a bag is the perfect way to include some color into your outfit. The other one is yellow and perfect for transitioning into fall!

     

    This concludes all of the pieces I’m getting for fall! It’s not everything obviously but it’s the things that are on my list at the moment!

What is your must get for fall? Be sure to let me know!!!

Lots of love

Guess Connect Smartwatch review

Hey guys today I’ll be talking about this € 380 smartwatch. Is it really worth that much of money? If you want to know please read on. 🙂

I have this watch now for about 4 months so I really took my time trying it out. The watch is definitely amazing but there are some negative aspects about it for sure. I’ll talk about them later.

.
Pin me! 🙂

The watch comes in a grey box with a “pillow” kind of thing (LOL), charging cord and a very small manual.
The strap is made out of silicone
It has rose gold/blue plating
And a stainless steel case
The watch has 3 buttons. 2 for the ‘smart’ part and 1 for the ‘regular’ watch to set the time.

Even though it is a smartwatch and has the features of a smartwatch it looks like a regular ‘fashionable’ watch. Which is the main reason why I specificly went for this one. It has a very small display at the bottom of the watch, which for me is large enough. I would say it’s somewhere in between a smartwatch and a regular watch. It’s great if you want some of the features of a smartwatch but still really want the looks. Because for sure this watch looks amazing, it makes a statement when wearing it. It’s rather bulky but I like those kind of watches, it’s all about how you wear it.

Let me talk about it’s features:
It comes with an app on your phone to connect with it. In this app you can decide which apps you want to recieve notifications from on your smartwatch. (You’re still with me?)
A cool aspect about this is you can choose for each app individual which apllication makes which vibration.
I think this is the main feature of the watch, recieving notifications. It is possible to answer through the watch but for me it doesn’t work that well. The watch is connected with Siri (Iphone) or Google (android). You just push the button and ‘talk’ to Siri.
Other features:
GPS, Music control, digital clock, phone with it,…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Now I’m going to talk about the positive and negative aspects:
Let’s start with the positive aspects.

  • It is GREAT for recieving notifications, you don’t have to check your phone every single minute, you’ll immediately know through the watch. It’s great for when you’re in meetings, at school,…
  • When you’re listening to music you can easily switch to the next song.
  • When it’s dark you can check the digital clock
  • It’s easy to phone with it even though you really need to hold the watch close to your mouth, which can get awkward at times… 😉
  • It looks amazing
  • You can change the vibration for every single app

Now the negative aspects.

  • The main thing is this: When you happen to not use the watch for a few days and afterwords you turn it on, BOOM! You get all of your notifications from the last like 24 hours, which is soooo annoying! Because I don’t use this watch everyday and it takes quite a long time until the watch has gone through the notifications.
    I searched if you can change this somewhere in the settings but you can’t. Which is what I hate most about the watch.
  • When I want to talk to Google it doesn’t understand me. For example: If I say ‘call *name*’ It won’t work since it doesn’t recognise the name. Maybe this has to do with me using Dutch names? I have no idea but it just doesn’t work.
  • The manual you get with it is really small. You do have a youtube channel all about this watch where they explain every single feature in a video. This is really helpful!

That’s all of my thoughts spilled out about this Guess smartwatch.

So as a conclusion: I don’t regret spending that amount of money on this watch but I wouldn’t do it again. It’s just not worth it for me since I have so many other gorgeous watches I tend to use way more often. If you’re really into watches and you just want the basic aspects of a smartwatch this is great for you!

Anyone else who has this watch? What do you think of it?

Skincare haul

Hey guys, I hope you’re all doing realy well!
Recently I got a bunch of new skincare, because my skin isn’t feeling it’s best. After all the traveling and being on airplanes my face needs a treat! If you want to know what I got, keep on reading! 🙂

Yves Rocher Hydra Végétal moisturiser
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
This is a moisturizer made for normal to combination skin, which is perfect for me. What I love most about it, is that it has a spf of 25. This will keep your face protected all day!

 

 

L’oréal Triple Active 24h Moisturiser
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
This moisturizer I plan on wearing overnight because it doesn’t have any SPF. It hydrates, protects and comforts the skin. It is for dry and sensitive skin. I don’t have a very dry skin but I do have a VERY sensitive skin.

 

 

Hydrogel Lip Mask
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I’ve never tried a lip mask before so I was very interested to see if it does anything!

 

 

 

 

Alvira Anti-Spot Patches
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I remember using this several years ago when I was 12. At that time it couldn’t really do anything because I put it on spots that weren’t really spots. A friend of mine actually said it does wonders, hence why I picked it up.

 

 

 

 

 

Garnier Toner for dry and sensitive skin
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
If I’m completely honest I’ve never ever used a toner, I know, CRAZY!
This is actually the first one that I own. Again for sensitive skin, I hope it’ll work!

 

 

 

 

 

Garnier Spot Correcter
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
This is something that realy got my attention. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Mainly because it’s not a BB or CC creme. It’s feels and looks just like a very thin moisturiser. I have no idea how that’s going to correct blemishes and spots. I’ll be keeping you updated!

 

Garnier Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As you may or may not know this is one of my favorite masks in the entire world!! I’m not exaggerating this is the best! It suits the skin and makes it feel fresh and clean.
I love this, so I decided to buy a few (READ: a lot) more.

 

 

 

 

Have you tried any of these products before? What do you think about them? Please let me know!

Lots of love

2 ways to style a Gucci belt

Hey guys! Todays post is completely dedicated to my Gucci double G belt. I’ve wanted this belt for as long as I can remember. It’s such a classic piece and it seems like everyone and their momma has it. It’s a huge investment and there are so many styles to choose from. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted but I decided to just go for a simple black leather belt.

If you look on pinterest or instagram there are so many girls/women styling this belt and to be honest, i can’t pull of most of their looks. So today I’ll be showing you how I wear my double G gucci belt.
Pinterest edited

  1. The first look concludes a simple black jeans and a basic white shirt. 2 basic pieces everyone should have in their wardrobe! Adding any statement belt to a simple outfit like this really elevates the whole look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
To add a little pop of color I paired it with a baby pink blazer, just to give it that little bit of ‘extra’. For shoes I went with something very simple to compliment the whole look. These are just some back lace up boots that go with everything. As you can see I’m already getting into fall.

2. The second look is completely different. I wouldn’t call it ‘edgy’ but it’s at least more edgy than the first one.

I love pairing a simple dress with a statement belt. This belt definitely does the job! Just be aware: I had to get extra holes made in the belt because there weren’t enough to fit it thight enoug around my waist.
The belt now really accentuates my waist. I wore it with a very statement sailorish jacket which isn’t usually my cup of tea but I just felt like it paired so well.

There are so many ways to wear this belt and it a great investment. It elevates every single outfit! This belt is a great option for anyone like me, who is starting a luxury collection.

How would you style this belt? Be sure to let me know or show me your blogpost about it!

I wear something other than pink

Zara is one of my favorite shops and today’s outfit is made out of nothing but Zara. During the sale I went a bit crazy so this post is dedicated to zara.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I feel like Zara is just that bit different from H&M, New look or Pimkie. It always looks way more expensive than it actually is. Especially during the sale the prices get extemely low.

I paid €7.99 for the top an €9.99 for the skort. The shoes are form last year but I think I only paid €19.99 for them.

I love the bottoms so much because they look like a cute mini skirt but actually they’re shorts. I always feel way more comfortable in shorts so I loved it! It is great to walk around discovering a town like I did. Again, ruffles is becoming a trend on my blog but I just think it’s so cute!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I’m not really the kind of person that wears a lot of color (besides pink obviously 😉 ) but this one sold me. The red just spoke to me together with the ruffles who give the basic top that bit of special.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another reason why I love zara is because they always have great dupes for designer pieces. Since I’m a designer lover but can’t always afford it Zara is a great way to wear something ‘disgneresque’.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So what do I actually want to tell you with this post?
It doesn’t have to be expensive to look good. As much as I love designer pieces and even though I would pay that much for certain items, it’s not always like that. It’s definitely not necessary. As long as you feel good in what you’re wearing.

Lots of love

Summer Favorites

Hey guys!
I can’t believe it’s already halfway August! I feel like the summer just started. Anyway today I’ll be sharing with you my most used/favorite products during July and August.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I want to start with the favorite thing I got the past few months. My steph-dad gave me this stunning Swarovski ring. I’m so in love with it. It’s very classic so I wear it with almost everything. I’m so grateful because this is truly something special.

 

Next up is a beauty product I’ve been using all summer. There’s almost nothing left in the bottle. It’s a simple hair oil but it’s been my savior! The sun just makes my hair so dry!! I put this oil in overnight and by the morning my hair is silky and smooth again. It’s by Garnier so very affordable!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
For the summer I’m wearing this fresh, flowery scent by Marc Jacobs. It’s the Daisy Dream perfume and it’s perfect for these summer days.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
As you might have seen on my previous blog posts, I’ve been traveling and wandering around a lot. I always made sure to have the basics with me such as my camera, money and my phone. I wanted a small easy bag that would fit every outfit. So for the whole month i’ve been wearing this same bag from Pimkie. The ruffles on the bag are just everything!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Last up I want to quickly mention 2 last things I’ve been using/doing a lot this summer. First of all is this nail-polish by essence, which is my favorite brand for nail polishes! It’s this gorgeous pink (but not too pink) color. It’s called My Love Diary.
Second is this AMAZING book. As much as I love my Jane Austen books, I think I have a new favorite. It’s Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. I would reccomend it to everyone!

 

That sums up all of my summer favorites. What are your favorites of this summer! Be sure to let me know! 🙂

What I wore in Paris

A few weeks ago I was in Paris for 1 day. A great opportunity to take nice outfit shots, because everyone knows Paris is the capital city of fashion. Since we were walking around for a whole day I wanted to dress casual and comfortable. Yet I still wanted my outfit to stand out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Eventuelly my outfit didn’t really turn out to be perfect for that day. It got extremely warm and the sun was shining all day. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sun! But I just wished I wore something more ‘summery’.

Nevertheless I loved the outfit. The combination of the flowers and the red top made the outfit that bit more ‘childess’ but still feminine. The ripped jeans gave the flowers another vibe, which I really liked.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Another thing I really like about these pants are the ripped bottoms. I love the look of that! it’s different but still very feminine.

As for the shoes I stayed with the colorful theme. These shoes give me all sorts of feelings. I never been really into color but this season changed. The shoes really do have every color of the rainbow but still manages to look nice.

 

That concludes this look. I loved wandering around in Paris seeing all these beautiful places!

Lots of love
