I’ve always had a special relationship with fragrances. Perfumes are like memories in a bottle to me; they take me back to the specific event or chapter in my life. I remember my very first perfume I had as a young teen, my Summer holiday scent I would wear on my annual trips with my best friend, to the fragrance I chose on my law school graduation day. Although I like to change up my perfumes quite regularly, I have a few that I can never live without. Today I will be sharing my Beauty Edit featuring my 5 signature fragrances I believe every woman needs in her life!
I’ve been completely obsessed with hair accessories recently, and I am pretty sure I am not the only one. It seems like social media has exploded with pretty pictures of hair styles with pearly hair pins, rose gold hair clips & other sparkly hair candy. However, looking at all these pictures I can only think of this: Where on earth did these people find all those hair accessories gems and how can I wear them without looking like I am taking a throwback picture of my “7 year old obsessed with anything cute and sparkly in my hair” look? If these thoughts were going through your mind as well, I got you girl. In today’s post I will be sharing my hair accessories collection, as well as all the links I got them from, ánd how I styled them in order to look chic and classy.
Glossier is hot and happening in the beauty world. You have to been living under a rock if you are not familar with this online beauty brand. If you are into the “your skin but better look”, you have to try out this brand that recently exploded on the internet and social media. I placed my very first Glossier order when I just moved to the United States (yes, it was literally one of the things I was most looking forward to, since Glossier is still very hard to get a hold off in the EU – #iamabeautyjunkie). Now, almost a year later, I have placed many more orders. In today’s blogpost I am reviewing all the products that I ordered from Glossier. ALL OF THEM. Get ready for reading the Glossier Beauty Bible.
When you are in the US, it is an unwritten rule that you have to shop till you drop. I remember going mental the first time I visited NYC and DC previous year, because I was just too excited to see all the fashion and beauty brands sold in actual stores, instead of online. Now that I’m living in the States, I have unlimited access to any of my favorite stores – and that is, mildly put, quite dangerous. There is just something about shopping in the US that just does not compare to any other place. One of my favorite places to empty my bank account at is the US Sephora. We do not have a Sephora in the Netherlands to begin with, but even the European Sephora does not have all the amazing brands that the US Sephora does have. I went a little mad, I am not gonna lie. If you are interest in everything that I got during my shopping spree, swatches, and what I think of the products, definitely keep reading this US Sephora Beauty Haul!
It’s time for another Back to School/University related post! I’m actually already in the middle of my first week at George Washington Law School, so I’m definitely back… It’s exciting yet stressful at the same time, haha. This time I’m going to talk about my everyday make-up look for uni I like to create when I go to class. I know most of us are always in a hurry, but still want to look polished and professional: this make-up routine is perfect for that! I hope you enjoy!
