Hair tutorial | Twisted

I came across this gorgeous hair tutorial at The Beauty Department. I always enjoy their tutorials. They also give tips and tricks for your nails and makeup! Definately a place you should go and check out.


Current inspiration


I've got my eye on you.

I've got my eye on you...

I really like these shoes especially the ones with the little ankle strap and high heel. What do you think, should I go for the orange or black one. And of course, my beloved All Stars in a subtile grey color plus new booties from Invitio. They remind me a bit of the ones I have from Sacha. I love the way they look and especially their material; snake leather.


Perfect dip | Guacemole

I really love avocado's so I decided it was time to dedicate a post about this delicious guacemole dip. This is what you'll need:
  • 1 or 2 avocado's - This depends how much guacemole you want to make. I like to use the ones that have a dark peel because their flavour is much stronger
  • 3 or 4 small, well riped tomatoes
  • 1 Spanish pepper - Use this one without the seeds if you want a little bit of spice or with the seeds for a strong kick of pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 1 onion
  • Chili powder 
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Cut the pepper, tomatoes and onion in very small pieces. Peel the avocado's and add them to the mixture. Put a nice amount of lime juice over the avocado's to prevent them from turning brown. Add a chili powder, a pinch of salt and pepper and mix everything together. Be sure to mash the avocado's not too much; it's nice to have a bit of chucks in the guacemole. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!!


Dream on

Found some gorgeous pictures on the net, hope you enjoy the atmosphere that speaks from these pictures as much as I do. Just play the song I posted above and stare at them. And while I'm posting this I realize I really should start making plans for this summer.

Outfit | Curl around

Luckily I managed to shoot some pictures today. I'm not feeling very well (I have a nasty cold) but fortunately it doesn't show I am feeling sick. Also wanted to show you what my real hair looks like. As you might have noticed my hair is straight in all of the pictures I have showed you, but this one is with my actual hair which is curly. What do you think; am I a curly girl or does straight hair suit me better.

Snapshot | More food

Last night I went to one of my best friends to catch up. We enjoyed a homemade pizza with a rediculous amount of mozarella, a salad and afterwards a dessert which wasn't homemade (all you Dutchies might recognize this one from Mona haha!). Just wanted to share a quick photo with you. Tomorrow I will be busy studying but I hope I'll be able to shoot some outfitpictures too!


Snapshot | Sushi

Brought home some sushi last week and it was delicious! Not really the type of food you would normally eat when it's rainy and cold outside but I just couldn't ignore my sushi cravings any longer. I really like sushi and if i could, I would eat it at least once or twice a week. 


On repeat

A golden oldie if you ask me. Love this song and re-discovered it this week. Playing it non stop in between my study sessions.


Wishing I could wear..

I wish it was summer so I could wear this outfit. Love the white and baby blue especially on tanned skin. So hurry up summer, hurry up!


Truly yours box

There are a lot of boxes with beauty goodies on the market lately. I've heard about the glossybox a while ago but I never felt the urge to order one because the products didn't really appeal to me. But this week I found out about the truly yours box and when I saw the pictures of what was in there last month.. I just want to order one right now. Maybe I will. Still doubting, I'm afraid it will be filled with products I don't need or like. But it would be nice to get a little gift each month filled with little surprises. Hmm...


Less stress

You all might be familiar with this problem; you have to finish a paper within one day - yay for not starting on time - but you still have to get some groceries and a friend invited you over for some drinks that night. So much to do in so little time. If I had a magic wand, I would make sure a day had more than 24 hours.

A while ago, I read about this technique at Misslipgloss called the Pomodoro Technique which is great for getting stuff done within a short period of time. One Pomodoro equals 25 minutes of working and after those 25 minutes you have to take a short break of 5 minutes. When you've finished 4 sets of 25 minutes you can take a break as long as you need. If you want to learn more about this technique you can visit their website.

Unfortunately, this doesn't make a day last longer than 24 hours but I am sure you will find this technique helpfull for making those 24 hours more efficient.


Outfit | Two toned

Just a simple outfit with my new pants from H&M. So happy I got it in the right size, I didn't know which size to get, a 34 or 36. Eventually I decided to buy a 36 and it fits perfectly

Lace is everywhere

I really like the upcoming lace trend. Obviously too cold to wear right now - it's still freezing in the Netherlands - but I really enjoy these pictures and cannot wait to buy one my own. Still figuring out whether it will be a cute lace short or top but I am sure it will be a white one, as you might have guessed by these pictures.


Got to love | O.P.I

Just a little sneak peak into my O.P.I. collection. I really love their colors and formulas. I haven't worn nail polish for quite a while because my nails tend to break very easily. Don't know whether it is the cold or something else but it's quite annoying. So as soon as my nails are a bit stronger, you'll see me wearing one of these gorgeous colors.


New in | H&M

These are my latest finds from H&M. Bought them all on sale so my wallet was happy with this purchase. I got some denim shorts with a baggy boyfriend fit, a jumpsuit and a two toned fake leather pants. Cannot wait to wear them!


Etsy finds - wrapped rings

All pictures from

This is just a small selection of the rings that are offered at Etsy. Lately, I am loving these wrapped rings. I think it looks sophisticated and artistic. It is always nice to wear a piece that's quite unique. So if you like, go check out they have other amazing stuff too (clothes, furniture, art, you name it). What are your latest finds?


Inspiration - Living rooms

- I found these pictures on the web and do not claim to own them nor made them myself, they are inspirational. All credit goes to the ones who made it -

Just a few of my favourite pictures of living rooms. Each of the rooms above are, at least for me, inspiring. I am in love with rooms that are completely white but I also like a pop of color (in accessorices like pillows or books) or a contrasting texture (such as wood).


Chocolate sunday

Just made a brownie with loads of nuts and chocolate. Tought it would suit this sunday perfectly!
What are you doing today?



Today I woke up in an even more white world. Despite the cold and traffic jams - not to mention the times I slipped and almost fell - I really like these snowy days. I decided to wear a contrasting color when shooting these pictures outside. Hope you like it!

Shopping is..
What do you think. True or false? By the way, I won't be able to post an ouftit today because I have to finish a paper (really boring, about statistics). But I promis you I will post one tomorrow! Hope you have a nice day!




Because it's freezing outside, I decided to stay at home today. Perfect for some online shopping. These items are really nice and I would love to add them to my wardrobe.



Don't know how this happened but ALL my comments disappeared!! So sorry guys, I appreciate every single one of them. But I am not able to make them show again.. The only thing that's left are the e-mails I got.. GRRRR..

Fashion @ Youtube

Maybe you already know Wendy from wendyslookbook at youtube but I found out about her channel not too long ago. And because I really enjoy watching her videos I thought it would be nice to dedicate a blogpost about her. But I am warning you.. Her videos are really addictive so there might be a possibility that you might not be able to leave your laptop/pc for the next hour.
Enjoy your day!
