SUMMER – Gifts & Clothes

Oh summer, there you go… For some, summer is still present, but for me summer ends as soon as I get back from holidays.
It’s now been 2-3 weeks, that I came back from Portugal and I’m still feeling quite “nostalgic” about that to be honest. I miss the sun, being able to put on your most loved summer outfits, not having to worry about anything, the fun … But hey!, there will be more of that “”soon”” and after all we all got to go back to normal life at some point!
But let’s leave it here with the introduction and move to the important stuff :
When on holidays, I spent a lot of time with my (lovely) cousin, Tatiana, who actually gave me a shoe box filled with some cute little things, which I’m about to show you here.

P1000951P1000997The first thing that popped into my eye, when opening the box, was this beautifully looking bottle.
Victoria’s Secret Pink Beach Weekend foaming body wash *breathe*, which smells extraordinarily good !

P1000961P1000959A little, pretty bracelet from Firenze (Italy).

P1000965 P1000966Some postcards and two little books, a german one (which was more of a ‘joke’ present as it is kind of a children’s story lolz) and a french one (as I know that a lot of my readers are french : this seems to be a nice book to read during your free time, “for fun”. It’s about a relationship between a teenager and a married woman; this is all I’m telling you as I haven’t even read the book myself).

P1000990P1000991 Two of the cutest plasters I’ve ever seen.

Among these little things, were also some edible goodies, which are obviously gone by now + some undiz lol (I didn’t really feel like taking a picture of them and I also can’t find them on the site, so yeah, sorry?).

I obviously also went shopping while in Portugal, considering that they have (great) shops we don’t have here. UNFORTUNATELY, I didn’t buy as much as I was expecting. There was a lot on my wishlist, which I really didn’t manage to purchase, however I’m extremely happy with what I got!

P1000992P1000993P1000976I got myself one of these famous ‘chokers’ at a medieval fair, which I’m really in love with it.

P1000983  A little bracelet/anklet, which I bought in one of those amazing, mini souvenir shops.

P1010022P1010018 I bought this rather summerly dress in one of those cheap little stores for like 7€, woohoo.

P1010024 P1010025Skinny, high waisted jeans – Pull&Bear (17,99€)
Belt – Bershka (4,99€)

And that’s all I got; feel free to leave comments, tell me what you liked, what you didn’t like, what I could change, etc. …

See you, pretty faces x

SUMMER OUTFITS

As I’m on holidays right now (at the moment I’m posting this) and as I don’t have internet in the place I’m staying, I decided to prepare a little article in advance, so that I can simply post it some day via my phone, when I’m at a place with internet. This way, my blog doesn’t stay “article free” for a whole month. (hope you somehow understand this little confusion, if not : never mind)
Let’s begin then : this is basically going to be about summer outfits – Oh my God, for real?! I bet you didn’t see that coming lol – ; I made up some Polyvores (?), which I hadn’t done for quite a long time now. Was fun!, so here we go….

You surely know those summer days, where it’s hot but still quite fresh and where you then don’t really feel like showing too much skin.

This is it, I could keep going BUT unfortunately I don’t really have time anymore and believe me : you do need time (and patience!!) to create polyvores! If you’re feeling really bored right now or whenever, just visit this site and free your imagination (you will be sent to the site as soon as you click the word Polyvores right at the beginning of this article).

Hope you’re having great holidays,
see you soon,
xoxo ♡

SUMMER WISHLIST

Is it my birthday? No. Is it christmas yet? No.
There’s just a lot I’ve been wanting lately, so why not share it with you?!

BACKPACK:

ASOS  Backpack with Double Buckle Detail

Backpacks can be so useful during summer when you’re going out with friends, to the beach for example or if you’re simply on holidays, visiting a new city or so : you can carry your bottle of water with you, a camera, whatever you want, while always keeping your (sweaty?) hands free to hold your ice cream! + it looks super cute/cool.

BIKINI:

   Blue Geo Print Bandeau Bikini Top    Black Watermelon Print Bikini Bottoms

Summer obviously also means : beach and/or pool. Therefore, we need a pretty bikini! Personally, I always just own one bikini per summer, as I never go to the pool and just once – if I’m lucky - to the beach. My current bikini is made of a simple black bottom and a white & black top, but this year, I’m really liking “fruity” and flowered bikinis, so bring in the colour!

DRESSES:

Jessica Rose Smock Dress

This summer I’m really into simple, “large” dresses, which look extremely cute. To make your outfit look like something special, you just need the right shoes and some accessories (like long necklaces, hats, etc. …).

KIMONO:

Pheobe Floral Print Tassel Kimono

Kimonos, the best thing for summer. They’re thin, so they won’t keep you too hot and they’ll make your outfit look amazing. Just imagine, you can go all black/white with a flowered kimono, which will make it look fabulous. (I had seen that first one quite a long time ago, but my mom didn’t want me to buy it *sad face*)

SOCKS:

I want some “lace socks” so badly, because they don’t just look cute, they’re perfect to wear with my jellies which I wore the other day for the very first time and which destroyed my feet lol!

There’s muuuuuch more I want to be honest, but ey, ain’t nobody got money fo’ that unfortunately.
Have a nice summer, filled with sun, love and fun!

Thank you !

tumblr_n3oewnux4A1t1prrio1_400

Thank you?! Yes, thank you for following me and for visiting my blog, lovely people !
Yesterday, I reached the 100 follows (101 even, I have to say though, that you’re not all very active) on this blog and not that long ago, I got to 1,000 views (1,057 right now). I started this blog on the 29th September 2013 – not even 1 year ago wow – and I must say that I’m quite happy and proud of myself at the same time. I have to admit, that I didn’t start very optimistic, thinking that this wouldn’t end in anything, anyways. I mean, this was my very first blog and I wasn’t really sure that anyone would like what I talk about on here, nor did I think that “so many” people would click on the follow button, nor that I would be able to do this for “so long” (It are just a few months, huh, calm down!, you must be thinking. But believe me, my laziness is impossible; I always find an excuse to postpone things like this).
It’s really you – whoever you are -, that motivate me, to keep doing this. I mean, with 1-2 likes on my articles, no comments at all and 20 followers, after all this, I would’ve already given up for sure. As a language/literature student, it obviously makes me more than happy, to see that people actually take their time, to read what I wrote.
As this blog wouldn’t exist without you, I would now like to know a few things : what type of my articles do you prefer? (Inspirations, ‘Style of the day’, etc. …); what is it that you don’t like that much on here?; is there anything specific you’d like to see on here? (I’m actually thinking about adding more serious articles,which aren’t fashion or beauty related!)
So yeah, feel free to leave some comments about my blog in general!

REVIEW // LIP SCRUB

Not that long ago, I posted an article about lipstick and lip care – here – and not thaaat long ago, I also went to Antwerpen, Belgium (classtrip). There I entered a Lush shop for the first time in my entire life and bought myself – after hesitating quite a lot – a lip scrub! The famous Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub.
P1000841
(don’t worry, I also don’t understand anything of what’s written on there)
About this lip scrub in general : it looks super cute, smells incredibly good and the taste is wonderful as well!
P1000843
How to use it : take a bit of it with your finger, rub it on your lips and at the end you can simply lick it off, as simple and practical as that.
P1000847
Does it work? It does. Or at least I feel like it does. After having applied it, your lips really do feel softer and ‘cleaner’! You just have to apply it regularly if you want to have them soft all the time, because obviously after 2-3 days they’re quite dry again.
This is really useful to apply before putting lipstick on, because lipstick clearly looks better when put on smooth and dead-skin-free lips!
Price : 9,45€ (quite pricey I must say, but after all it lasts quite long, so one can’t really complain)

This is it for this quick review (I’m sure you already read enough about this product on other blogs), hope you liked it.
xoxo, beauties.

BOYFRIEND STRIPES

Hello girlsss (and boys?!),
I feel like it is now so long ago that I sat down, to write a proper article!
But anyways, now I am here, ready to start.
You surely already noticed this new trend with the boyfriend jeans! To be honest, a few years ago, when “boyfriend jeans” became famous, they looked way different – and worse – at least that’s how I have them in mind. Super large, but super tight on the ankles, the super low crotch, a potato sack basically. Eventhough they looked so bad, everyone seemed to like and want them – even I did, yes, judge me. Thanks mom for not wanting to buy me those -!
Fortunately, they have changed to the better and it’s about those I wanna “talk” (or better said : show) here and also about how good they look, worn the right way.
Another thing I’ve noticed, is that the stripe tops have had their comeback as well! And as I’m quite a fan of it, I’ll be showing some pwetty pictures of that, too.

ctgin - CopieOh, look at this : boyfriend jeans + stripes! Personally love this outfit.

fbbfg - Copie ffdbfd - Copie ffvfvf - Copie gfg - Copie As you also notice, most of these oh-so-wanted boyfriend jeans are torn, which brings that special touch into the more classy combinations.

vfbf vfbfb vvffAnd how good they look with every type of shoe, hell yeah.

bhyh - CopieEven Kylie – the queen – Jenner, mixes both : stripes and boyfriend jeans.

bhjbhvh - Copie bhjhvy - Copietgdgdr - Copie hjbhbuj - CopieThis outfit looks so cool !

gghh - Copie uhfds - CopieSo as you see, stripes are everywhere.

Hope you liked this article,
see you soon,
xoxo

P.S.: A normal, fashion-related article is on its way. It will just take some time to finish, because of school, but I’ll do my best to publish it as soon as possible!
