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:

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*)

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

No one wants dry, chapped lips, right! After all, healthy looking lips call more for a kiss than cracked ones.
So here some stuff to use, to keep your lips smooth.

Lip care:

Drinking a lot of water to hydrate (your lips) is very important!

A lipstick will also just look perfect on soft, smooth lips, after all, putting lipstick on damaged lips would simply result in a mess.
So make sure you take care of your lips, if you’re waiting for a kiss or if you’re planning on putting some colour on them!

HAIR

Hair oh hair. Something a lot of us girls couldn’t live without, eventhough it can be a daily battle. Bad hair days are really bad, huh. What will I do now? I just have 15 minutes left to get ready. This is such a mess, I hate my hair. We all have at least pronounced one of these sentences once in our lives, let’s admit it.
But there are actually a lot of ways to do your hair, so don’t worry, you’ll surely find a solution for that “mess”!

STRAIGHT
fvfdvgfbfhgygy
If you straighten your hair on a daily basis, you should take a lot of care or simply stop straightening it every single day, because at the end it will just be all broken and start looking awful.

WAVY
large
ftgfghhhggwavy
Wavy hair gives one a messy and quite natural look and there are actually easy ways to make your hair look naturally wavy! The easiest way, which requires no heat at all of course is the “wet braid” method, we all know.

CURLY
tumblr_n3kbifdQFj1r5ey1mo1_500gbghgfbf,nvjfdLove natural curly hair!

PONYTAIL
ghnf tgfgh tumblr_n3o1wtXbok1so18wzo1_500 tumblr_n3o33zUeD81rsfuzqo1_400
Simple and messy, high or low, ‘strict’ and tidy, there are a lot of ponytail types, which don’t always fit everyone’s face.

BRAID

hair4
Fishtail braid, really easy to do actually.

Halo braid, perfect for hotter days.

BUN
bbf bhbhjtumblr_n3ijxlY6m21qhsmllo1_1280

Be it messy or tidy, a bun is always the easiest solution to get rid of our (sometimes) annoying hair.

SHORT
cdcd(Kylie Jenner)
hnjhbhjhair1588A lot of girls tend to prefer long hair and hate their hairdressers as soon as those cut 1mm more than asked, but there are so many girls we all know, who cut their hair a good bit shorter and it looks fabulous!

COLOUR
hair hbuyj tumblr_n3d8u8ZGh71r6qwqvo1_400Quite in love with these pale colours.

DECORATE
tumblr_n2y6ziDWZ01soqp8co1_500hntygfyhtumblr_mbaizgJIbX1rp08jho1_500htfhthFlowers, a hat, beanie, a cute bow, there is a lot you can use to decorate your head.

As you see there are many things you can do with your hair, so be wild and try out new looks if you’re feeling like making a little change on yourself!

Style Of The Day : Leather

Leather, a classic. Loved by everyone, hated by no one (or not).
Let’s talk about leather jackets! Now that the weather has decided to not be cold nor hot, it’s time for most of us to take those out. I sadly don’t own one yet, but hopefully will, because honestly : doesn’t it often make simple outfits look more “fashionable”?! It does. It’s one of those jackets you can keep in your closet for 2 years and take it out afterwards, without being ‘out’ or looking ridiculous (still depending on what kind of leather jacket you have).
With these on you can turn your look into something more “bad girl” like, you can keep it classy or make it look sexy if you want, why not even go for a more cosy/sporty look?! It’s quite easy to combine, but one should still take care on what he’s going to wear with this, to make it look perfect. Obviously there are different types of leather jackets, which include not-so-good-looking ones.

BLOG THEME // CHANEL

I was thinking about what my next article could be about and as you might or might not have noticed : CHANEL.
My blog is basically called like that, so why not go a bit deeper into this theme?!
I noticed that I don’t know anything about Chanel… HOW did this all start? WHEN did this all start? etc. … And most of you also maybe don’t have the answer to these questions, so let’s make some research and get smarter from it.

Even her own elegant and simple style gets recognized and is soon imitated by a great number of parisian women.
– 1913 : Gabrielle Chanel opens her next boutique in Deauville this time. With this boutique she introduces the sportswear to the women of her time, which again gets to know a big success.

I hope you got a bit smarter from this, just like I did. I didn’t put every single detail in here, just what I thought as being the most interesting, but you can always go and read everything on the site I gave you up there, beneath the last picture.
—————————————————————————————————————-
You surely heard about the Chanel fashion show which took place in a ‘supermarket’, some weeks ago, which I thought was a great idea! So I’ll leave you with some pictures of that.
