Angora wool

3 reacties

Lana Del Rey with a pretty jumper but... there is more to it!


Angora wool comes from the angora rabbit. Normally they have to use loose fur. In a video of PETA they show us that mostly they are using the WHOLE fur, so they pluck the animals bald. This must be very hurtful for the animals. Therefor H&M stops working with this industries and they're taking the fur out of the stores. Go H&M, so proud of you! Other brands... leave the bunnies alone, you too sweet Lana...

How to use makeup (the basic)

1 reacties

Good makeup is all a girl needs.. well that's my point of view, and I admit I can't live without it.
Yesterday they were two girls in a shop.. just talking about makeup. The girls were telling each other they were afraid to use it. The key word however is practice.
I started to do makeup when I was 13 years old.. just at home. I loved my mothers case.

How to Prevent Your Foundation from Turning Orange
When I was 16 I started to use foundation (the brown stuff)... and I admit I had my blunders: too brown, too light, forgetting my neck.. I  did it all. The teenage boys in my class would always asking me: why you use it, stay natural. The truth was.. using makeup to look natural was the hardest thing. 
I said was.. now I'm 23 and it's just 5 minutes and I'm done. Don't be afraid it doesn't have to cost you 7 years to learn. Now in the world of blogs, YouTube, Pinterest you're going to learn fast. The only question is: are you ready to get started?

1. Concealer
They all say something else.. so I'm just going to share what works for me.
Pick a color lighter than your foundation/skincolor. Bring it UNDER your eyes + a little bit on your cheeks (check picture below). The concealer has to be thick: a stick is a good idea.
Use  finger to blend. If it looks light.. don't worry: the foundation (2) will go over it and makes it darker anyway.
If you want a brand.. MAC is always a good investment.
Concealer How to.

2. Foundation
The hard part: picking a good foundation.. better to go lighter than to go to brown. 
It's just not good that people are seeing to hard that you are wearing makeup. Stay classy, so stay natural. You can always make yourself 'browner' with powder afterwards.. so don't worry. 
Pick a store with good lightening to check the foundation on your hand: choose one with a yellow undertone, better than a pink one: again to stay natural. 
Beginners keep 1 color for ALL  the face, experienced girls can use more colors to get dept.
Good brand: Loreal Infaillible (I use sand, when I was younger darker: honey)
Also of course Mac (like always)
All About Proportions

3. Powder
Powder your whole face with one good NATURAL (keyword) color: keep it simple. This is the trick to let the makeup stay for hours. Use your brush but don't take the makeup OFF your face with it. 
Any brand is good, loose powder is better (it doesn't stick at one place).

Create dept with BLUSHING POWDER. Here you can choose your own thing. Just don't overdo it. 
Pink.. on top of your cheeks. (OVAL SHAPED girls)
Brown (a little bit), on the sides of your cheeks. (SQUARE SHAPED girls)
How to Apply Blush According to Your Face Shape

4. Finish it.
Here you can go as far as you want... 
Putting mascara on isn't really a problem for a lot of people (good job!). Just don't forget to actually use it... it's the basic for a clean and healthy look. What I think it's important that you divide your eyelashes.. hate when they stick together. Have fun chicas, the world of makeup just opened for you, questions? Just ask!
Applying mascara is one of the most basic make-up tricks in the book but I always like to try out new ways to apply it and see what creates the best, most effective look.

New girl

1 reacties
Started watching the show New Girl and I totally love it.
The first episode however is pretty weird!
But you just have to give it a chance... and you'll see it becomes a good kind of weird. The story is about a girl (of course).. who moves in with 3 other guys after her breakup. She is a girly-girl who likes to sing and is extremely positive.. little miss sunshine. With her ridiculous cuteness, she brings out the best in people. The show is funny too and it is just 20 minutes per episode, but enough time to bring a smile on your face. I got a new role model... who's that girl?? It's Jess.

I AMsterdam

Untitled | via Tumblr

mostly mistaken his your tourism of the wrong kind (thank you Miley Cyrus too for that :-/).
Just wanted the world know, A'dam is worth so much more!
Went this week, and I enjoyed every minute of it. What a rich culture.

If you want to start your trip: get a bike. Everybody does it in A'dam, so watch out for the other bikers.


If you like arty-farty you have to go to the 'Rijksmuseum', museum with all the great names of Holland like Van Gogh. Also a cool place to take some pictures with the letters of 'I amsterdam'. 

If you like history (like snobby me ;)), you'll have to check out Anne Frank's house. 
Anne Frank is the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust.  
She kept her diary, this book you can read. I strongly recommend the movie too.
The house is empty but will take you're breath away... you still feel the tense there.
Except when I'm with people that I'm confortable with or that I love...

Enough culture maybe? The Hollanders know to shop, so enough places to do the same.

funki -

You'll find the Kardashian collection @ de Bijenkorf. 

Don't forget the Amsterdam Dungeon. It's an 80 minute journey into 500 years of Amsterdam's horrible history. You'll laugh and scream as you encounter live actors with special effects. And last but not least... a ride in a church. Pure entertainment, and just next to madame Tussaud.

We slept near by the Hard Rock Café, this neighborhood is the perfect place to party.


Just don't forget Amsterdam can be a romantic place too:

lovely nights with lovely lights

Have fun like I did this week, xoxo

Hair is the new makeup

0 reacties
More and more girls are paying attention to there hairstyles.
It seems it's less about makeup.. more about hair!
I am more a makeup-girl.. but I'm trying to get more interested in hairstyles,
otherwise it's always the same: natural curly and loose / or / flat and loose.
Got myself an ombre a half year ago... bought myself a curling iron for the finishing toughs.
me @ the beach

Things I found:
cute pony
Oversized sweater, shorts, tights, silver accessories, and braided updo. Love! Perfect fall outfit.
Dear @Elizabeth Lockhart Dehn | Beauty Bets (my beauty psychic): Y'day I saw 4 other gals in a local Edina drinking establishment w THE SAME hair as me. Sigh. Thoughts on maybe a chunky bang to modern things up? Or an already-gone trend? Bad for mah face? Any advice on this board of mine?  Ohhh, what does the future hold?  xoxo
