I finally found the time to spend a giftcard that was burning a hole in my wallet since January… I took this highlighter / luminizer home: the Watt’s Up by Benefit! This “champagne” hued cream-to-powder highlighter stick has quickly become one of my favorite make up products. Why? Let me show you!
Bobbi Brown has launched a new mascara, the ‘Eye Opening Mascara’, a mascara with a true #OMG, wow effect. She sure knows how to sell it, talk about creating high expectations…
I’ve recently found this cute little lightbox online, and I just had to order it. It’s a box that can be used with your own personal quotes and signs, and you either turn on the lamps inside with batteries or an adapter. It can be placed anywhere you like, on a table or shelve. You can also hang it on the wall, the options are endless! [Read more…]
Sometimes it pays to be a night owl. I’m a musician, which means lots of late nights writing music, home from gigs in the morning hours. On a certain night, I was just up late watching some Netflix show, before going to bed at 4 in the morning. I grabbed my phone to do a little social media browsing in bed, when I spotted someone who was tweeting about the Rihanna x Puma creepers. I didn’t know there were going to be more colorways or a restock to begin with! To my surprise the white, blue and coral colorways were on sale and still available in my size. I didn’t love the blue sole version, and though white creepers are gorgeous, there’s no way I could keep them white. So I opted for the Rihanna x Puma Fenty creepers in ”Coral”.
I’ve been in love with my new Rihanna x Puma creepers ever since I took them out of the box…
I’m also planning to focus on more than just fashion in the next few months, you’ll be seeing more beauty blogposts and I’ll be sharing much more of my life and work as a singer/songwriter.
I hope you like it!
If you love watching Youtube Beauty Guru’s like I do, you probably already heard about this highlighter by the Balm. I watched Desi Perkines and Nikki Tutorials rave about the amazing glow that it brings in so many of their videos, I felt I just had to try it myself. Curious?
Hi! Sorry for being off the radar last week. Busy with work that led to some migraines and stress levels that drove me a little crazy. But I’m back and feeling so much better, and the sun has been shining a lot, so that’s been helpful. Yesterday I’ve cleaned out my closet and made it ready for spring. I’m really a little fashion hoarder. I find it hard to say goodbye to some items, and sometimes that can lead to a little bit of ‘stuffocation’. Since I was cleaning all day, I kept my outfit really basic, but spiced it up with my new Nike Huarache sneakers. Yes! After months of drooling and trying them on, I’ve finally bought them. Woohoo :) Take a look at my outfit and check out my brand new Huaraches!
Finally found time to shoot outside! Sadly it started to rain, so sorry for my grumpy look. Wearing my new H&M Trend bomber, found it on sale for 15 euros, so couldn’t resist. (Still on the hunt for that perfect wintercoat, a long camel coat…) Combined it with jeans, a simple sweater, Zara boots and a new bag from River Island. A little while ago, I won River Island giftvouchers, and I finally found the time to spend an afternoon shopping in Amsterdam. I will show you my River Island purchases some time this week in a little shoplog.
There are always fashion talents on the rise, whether they’re an emerging, under the radar designer or a sudden favourite. And while they all offer something new, Farfetch has chosen their top five to get excited about right now. Whether you’re into sequins, citrus prints or pared-back minimalism, there’s an upcoming label to watch out for at Fashion Week. Take a look at what Farfetch has selected.
Indian-born Ashish Gupta has reclaimed the sequin and made it his signature. No shape is too casual: this year he encrusted torn denim and the humble plastic bag with thousands of them. Elsewhere there were old school Coco Cola logos, striped shirt dresses and louche zebra print. It was a collection that went viral immediately, thanks to the Instagram appeal of those luminescent shopping bags, and marked Ashish as a young designer to watch. Next season expect pearls, lots of pink and 3D texture.
Based in Copenhagen, Stine Goya’s shattered prints bring texture to her minimalist, sculptured, and carefully constructed silhouettes. Her eponymous label is quickly becoming a favourite with fashion insiders, thanks to her wearable aesthetic and a Scandinavian appeal that is difficult to define. This season the Central St Martins graduate showed perforated tops and mosaic print jackets, worn with a single ear cuff and just the right amount of edge.
Mother of Pearl
Vibrant colour ways and tongue-in-cheek insect prints have made Mother of Pearl’s slip-on sneakers one of the most coveted footwear choices of 2013. But the label’s ready-to-wear is just as bold as its accessories, with a collection of citrus prints and shopping bag stripes. Those signature patterns are inspired by the label’s collaborations with artists, distilling their work onto luxury fabrics and lending them a sport luxe feel.
The closer you look, the more there is to Simone Rocha’s clothes. Sci-fi fabrics were an early signature, but her recent shows have focused more on complicated construction techniques instead. It’s a shift that saw her take home Designer of The Year at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards earlier this month, and resulted in a collection of low-slung skirts this season. For Autumn/Winter 2014 Rocha was inspired by the opulence of Queen Elizabeth I’s court, translating it into a line of embellished cocktail dresses and ruffled coats.
There’s been a lot of buzz about Stella Jean lately. Her ladylike silhouettes, borrowed from the 1950s, have been dipped in hothouse colour and reimagined with wild, exuberant prints. The designer draws inspiration from both her Italian background (craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail and dramatic shapes) and her Caribbean heritage (those exotic prints and daring colour palettes), resulting in a collection that demands second glances.
