Outfit | All black again

Jumper - Vero Moda (Zalando)
Shiny jeans - River Island
Loafers - Pier one (Zalando)
I'm wearing the new items from my previous post here (already a month ago, oops)! Sorry for the lack of posts, but I'm so busy with my fulltime internship... One more week and then I have two weeks off, yay!

I'm also trying to catch up with all the vlogmas videos on youtube, the only time I regret following so many people hah :D I'm behind one week, so that will involve a lot of laptop time

I'm posting a little more regulary on instagram, so feel free to take a look there! (click)

Can you see that I jumped on the ombre hair bandwagon? Now the hype has settled down, I decided to go for it and so far I'm really liking it! Thumbs up for that.

Ordered | On its way!

Burberry Body perfume (60ml - €31,85) -
Pier One loafers (€44,95) - Zalando
Vero Moda black jumper (€19,95) - Zalando
Oh my god, my mom and I discovered a fabulous new perfume. So good, we immediately searched the internet for the cheapest deal. At we found it for almost half the price you pay in a normal perfume shop. So definately check it out if you're after a new perfume!

I never thought I would say it, but I got myself some loafers. The shoe I find so ugly will soon be on my feet. If they look alright that is. But shoes like these look incredible with a dress or a wetlook skinny jeans... So I jumped on the bandwagon!

Still haven't got a simple black jumper in my closet, but that will change very soon! I hope the fabric isn't itchy :D

Outfit | Monochrome flowers

Photo from my instagram (link)
 An outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago, when it was still warm... Although I'm really looking forward to wear jumpers again! 
I'm in love with this blouse from New Look (link!). It looks so chic with these black trousers and red lipstick.

New in | Coat

Coat - Primark (€30)
I've just come back from a successful trip to Primark. When I was browsing their website last week my eye started sparkling when I saw this baby. My mission to find it in store begun and actually wasn't that hard, because when I walked into the store I saw it immediately. And the rest is history. I can't wait for the weather to get colder!

Oh and I also picked up my first bra. Just a simple nude t-shirt bra, the cheapest I could find (€3), so I can wear it when I go shopping for new blouses in a couple of weeks. A sportsbra isn't very flattering when you want to try on clothing, you see...

Wishlist & Update #1: I've had my surgery!

1, 2 & 3 H&M
4. New Look   5. Asos
So tiny wishlist at the moment... I wish I could look for more, but that shouldn't be very wise as I can't shop for another month.
Or even lift up my arms to try things on hah. Yes, it is that bad...

As I wrote earlier (here) I was saving for a breast augmentation. Well, tomorrow it's been a week already and let me tell you one thing, it's not fun. At. All. I've been through hell the first three days. My days existed of taking pain killers (that didn't really work btw), sitting, trying to eat, trying to sleep and sit some more. Because all you can and want to do is sit all day (and night) and try not to move a lot.

Right now I'm having a really sore bum from sitting all the time and I'm afraid that will go on for a while. I still can't sleep on my back, but at least I'm in my bed at night with a pillow or six.

I'm going back for a check up on Thursday, so I'm pretty curious what he has to say. I think it's healing well, although I wish it went faster. I'm so done with the pain and not being able to function properly. But I'm getting there, slowly... Hopefully I will feel better within four weeks and be ready to try out some bra's :D

Very personal | Why I'm saving big time!

Finally I can share with you why I haven't been shopping in over two months and still have three to go... This is a very personal thing to me and I am so happy that one of my lifelong dreams will come true very soon! I'm having a breast augmentation in September. There I said it.

Citytrip Cologne!

First ever Dunkin' Donuts: not a fan... - The Dom - The Rhein - Selfie of course.
On the first and second of July the boy and I drove to Cologne in Germany for two days of shopping and culture. It was only a two hour drive as I live very close to the Dutch border. So when we were settled in our hotel room we went to the town center to explore some shops.
I didn't do much shopping myself as I'm not really into summer clothing and I'm saving up for something mayor I will possibly tell you more about later if everything goes as planned. The boy however did buy some nice things. Let's say he expanded his shoe collection even more...
The second day was reserved for culture. And for that this city is also a good place to go! It's filled with amazing historic buildings and WWII memories.
  • Things we've seen and that I can recommend: the Dom, the Rhein, El De Haus (former Gestapo headquarter I thought), 4711 Haus (of the famous Eau de Cologne), the Roman German museum, Belgische Viertel (Belgian Quarter)...
  • A couple of the shopping streets we've walked through: Schildersgasse, Breite Strasse, Hohe Strasse, Ehren Strasse, Brüsseler Strasse, Neumarkt...
  • Hotel we stayed at: Mercure hotel Köln West. It takes a 20 minute ride with the tram to the center, but it's outside the Umwelt zone (and that's what we wanted). Great hotel for a short stay and amazing breakfast!

Outfit | The instagram snapshot

Blouse, bag and necklace - H&M
Faux leather trousers and watch - River Island
Heels and bracelets - Primark
Believe me, I did take photo's with my proper camera, but neither one of them turned out great. So I turned to the snapshot I took earlier with my phone. So I'm sorry for the not so great quality :)

Anyway, today I didn't have to work for a change so my mother and I decided to go out to visit some shops and ate a very yummy ice cream! Oh and I tried out side parting with my hair and I'm quite enjoying it :D

Beauty | Catrice Pore Refining Anti-Shine Base


Well, remember me hah? :D I'm having a bit of a busy time at the moment, that explains the lack of blogposts. I don't know when I will be back on track, but in the meantime I will try to update whenever I can.

For now I have a lovely product to show you! Catrice dropped some new products in store a couple of months ago and one of those things was a primer. I never tried a primer before, but I was experiencing some not so nice streaky foundation moments because of my bad skin (never happened before though!) so I thought a primer might be the answer.

So I hopped into the local drugstore and grab it, as they were selling fast back then. And I must say, I do see a difference when I use this. Not that my skin looks more even or so, but definately no more streaks of foundation. So big yay!
The other thing I was worried about was that it might make my skin go greasy, but it luckily didn't, at all. Double yay! 

I can honestly say that this product is a complete winner for me. I now use it on a daily base and will immediately repurchase it when I run out :)

Happy Easter!

Nails | Essie 'Romper Room' (LE)

This afternoon I'm off to the boy until friday :D We are going to enjoy the lovely weather, going out to dinner, strolling around town... Ah I love Spring!

Yesterday I bought two new pairs of pumps (my fellow Belgian readers: the ones from Flair :D), but the left pump is too thight around my toes. A size up was way too big. Does anyone have some tips or tricks to loosen up the fabric? The fabric is called hi-tec or something like that... It's really sturdy material.

Nails | Five shades of pink

Fiji - Romper Room - Vagabondage (LE)  - Karl says très chic - Lingering Lingerie
Now Spring is slowly coming to town, I tend to give my nails a lighter colour than usual. Pink colours are definately my favourite. Although I'm not very versatile when it comes to nail polishes. I stick to my reds, pinks and blues :D. Romper Room and Karl says très chic are two new additions. I will soon make some swatches!

Q | What's your favourite Spring colour?

Addiction | Magazines

I know the internet is completely taking over the media market as we know it these days. But still I enjoy holding a real life magazine in my hands.
Don't get me wrong, blogs are great (otherwise I wouldn't be here)! But on some days, I just like an old school printed blog. Because that is what a magazine is. A blog. Made by a lot of people.

My number one is Cosmopolitan. Followed by the weekly Flair and sometimes I tend to buy an Elle issue too. So excuse me whilst I'm having some me-time along with the top 500 of the nineties on the radio.

Beauty | My favourite blush

This gorgeous piece of make up, is the best gift I have ever received. My lovely boyfriend bought it for my 21st birthday back in August last year. Since then it became my most worn blush ever. It even beated my MAC blushes and as a true MAC fan that really says something.
The colour of the Dior Rosy Glow blush is just the perfect bright baby pink and it lasts me the whole day. Because of the price I would never ever bought it myself, but now that I have it, I might consider buying other high end products...

Tip | IKEA storage for your brushes

The boy and I went to Ikea a couple of days ago, because he wanted to look for a CD rack. We did find one, but it was sold out unfortunately. Nevertheless, IKEA is always fun to wander around for a couple of hours! When we were almost at the end, I bumped on some really cool candle holders. I don't really like them as a candle holder, but I thought it would look good as a brush holder instead. I eventually picked up two. In the first one I put some random stuff I use daily, like a mascara, highlighter, eyeliner and so on. In the second one are all my brushes. I think it looks really nice all together!

They are called SKRURAR and only €1,99/piece (link).

Inspiration | White

Our central heating decided to quit this weekend, so I'm trying to write some sort of post with very very cold fingers. The heating guy will come tomorrow and hopefully fix it. Not having any warm rooms or hot water isn't the best way to spend my vacation. So I'm going to grab all my blankets again, some warm oatmeal and watch a film or two. At least it isn't freezing and the sun is out, so there is some kind of warmth in the house.

P.S. Oh, my exam results turned out great by the way.
P.P.S. The boy and I are together for four years today, big yay. Still love him so much!
