October bullet journal

Hey guys! Lately I’ve really been into bullet journaling. It’s a great way to get creative and get organized at the same time. It helps me out so much with planning blog posts and planning my daile day-to-day life.
So I decided to share what I use my bullet journal for.

Side note: I am not the most talented and creative person but that’s not what it’s about. It’s about doing what you like to do and trying.

As you can see I have a monthly planner. There’s one side for my personal activities and one for my blog. I write down when I post which blogpost to keep track on when I need to write a new one. Beside that I have small squares with notes, to-do and birthdays.

Every month I try to keep track of what I spend/gain. Just to get an idea of how much I spend on what. This doesn’t always go as planned but I try my best.
My last page is always a page to inspire. It depends each month what I do but this month I decided to cut out  some things of a magazine.

That’s what I did this month for my bullet journal. Do you have a bullet journal post? Leave me the link in the comments! 😀

Lots of love

2 ways to style a white tee

Hey guys!
Today I’m back again with a ‘how I style’ post! I decided to style a basic white tee. Because as boring it may be, I feel like when it’s styled the right way it can make a bomb ass look.
I styled it 2 different ways, I hope you like it. 🙂

How to style a basic white tee
The first look is a very simple outfit but perfect for those easy days. All you need for this look is obviously a white tee, black pants, jean jacket and cute jewelry!
Because as simple as the outfit is, the jewelry will make or break your outfit.

I went with some dainty layered necklaces but a very statement watch. I’m wearing my Guess connect smartwatch. It was a huge investment but it was so worth it! I have a review up on my blog all about this watch.
But it can be any statement watch or necklace.

 

 

 

 

The rest of the outfit is very simple. As I said, the jewelry is what makes this outfit. The shoes add in too, I paired it with a more ‘special’ kind of shoe. I paired it with some lace up flats. I tucked in the white tee in the front to give it more shape. For this outfit I used a more bagy white tee. I used a L (I’m usually a S), this gives it that more oversized effortless look.

The second outfit is very different. First of all I used a different white tee. One that hugs my body. I paired it with A tulle midi skirt and some flat espadrilles. The white tee dresses down the skirt which I love. It gives me more opportunities to wear this particular skirt.

To add a pop of color I added in this pink jacket. It’s is very light so perfect for this time in between summer and fall. What you can do to dress this skirt up is adding in a pair of heels. Any court shoe will do to make this outfit perfect for a night out.

 

What else would you like to see me style? Be sure to let me know!

September favorites

Hey guys! Today I’m back with my most used/favorite products during the month of september! This month was soooo hectic. I came back from South-Africa and had to go to college right away, picked up my blogging again and had to catch up with my friends after 3 months of holiday. I know crazy! But there are a few products/items I really enjoyed during september.

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation

I feel like I’m the last person on earth trying this product and I don’t know why because it is amazing!!! It has medium to full coverage, looks like skin, sits beautifuly on the skin and has the perfect color match. I LOVE this foundation, I’ve been using it everyday!

Planning

Since september has been this crazy I’ve really been getting into planning. I’m writing everything down. To-do lists, desk planners, weekly notes, shopping lists,… EVERYTHING and I’ve been loving it! Organization is the key 😀

Louis Vuitton Neverfull

I took this with me to travel, I use this as my schoolbag, I use it when I go sleep at my friends house,… This bag has been my go to lately! It fits so much stuff and looks classy and not toooo bulky.

That’s it for my september favorites, not that much I know but I love everything 100%!

Back to school outfit

Hey guys! I feel like it’s been a while since I posted an outfit post. So I decided to go out and shoot this back to school look. To be honest, it isn’t what I wore to my first day of college but simply because it’s college. If you’d like a back to college outfit I would gladly do that! So the look I did today is more so a high school outfit something I would’ve worn last year when I was still in high school. I hope you like it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I went for a casual but mostly comfortable look. It’s your first day you’ll probably be walking around the building, carrying all of your books,.. So comfortable but stylish is the way to go!

To add a bit of a ‘wauw’ effect I added my Gucci belt but any statement belt will do just to spice up to outfit. I paired it with the Adidas NMD, unfortunately I couldn’t find them in the pink color but all of the colors are nice!

The pink cropped sweater matches the pink shoes perfectly. This exact one isn’t available anymore but I’ll link some alternatives down at the bottom of this post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The faux leather jacket gives it that more of a ‘I’m handling life’-vibe. :p

Products mentioned:
Shoes: Adidas NMD  €140
Jeans: Urban Outfitters high rise jeans €70
Belt: Gucci double G belt €520
Sweater: Couture Candy sweater on sale for €30
Jacket: H&M biker jacket €60

I hope you liked this simple but fun look for going back to school! Did you post any back to school outfit’s? let me know!!

Lots of love

Stefanie

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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
