We don’t all need to be Instagram Perfect
Today I clicked on an Instagram account, stunning girl. 50K followers, people screaming her name in the comments, perfect selfies. A fitgirl in perfect body-hugging nike pro shorts. Makeup skills that are beauty blogger worthy, perfect brows and long lashes. I bet a name popped into your mind when I mentioned the girl, actually the girl could be any girl. Many girls inspire to be her, perfect with a load of followers. The Instagram Queen, or as they say nowadays Instagram Baddie. A girl who is perfect in the eyes of others and fulfills all the boxes.
But what is perfection? Is it those perfect brows, perfect body, perfect amount of followers…
You can train so hard to be perfect, eat every meal you need.
You can layer on make-up, draw in every other aspect people want you to be.
You can also buy a load of Instagram followers.
You can also hold your face in a perfect way to look ever beter.
You can use an app to make yourself more skinny, curvy, blurred…
Maybe perfection is not into a picture? Maybe it is not to be captured in a simple image on Instagram but just something that is in everybody.
I personally think that if you inspire to be Instagram perfect, you might never be happy. Because who cares about looking perfect in a picture when you can be smiling, when you can laugh, when you can look silly. Who cares if you are a size 0 or a size 22 or whatever number there is sewn into your shirt.
Often we forget that instagram is not real life. When I move I have a massive under chin, when I pose in pictures I hide it. I am not the only person who takes tons of pictures and then picks one out of the bunch to share on social media. We all want to present in a perfect way. But sometimes those non perfect moments can be so beautiful.
I am kind of addicted to dark red lipsticks, liquid or in traditional lipstick form. Shiny till velvet till matte, I buy them all. So when I saw Cherry skies in the German drugstore I needed to buy it, I also did not swatch in store because you can never go wrong with a dark red from NYX. So today I am going to post a little review about NYX Liquid Suede in 03 Cherry skies. So keep on reading for the review, swatches and a rundown where you can get this and other products that I used on my face.
Summer fashion haul
Aliexpress is perfect for things you would love, but not really need. Those things you don’t want to spend a lot of money on but would make you smile. But those who order a lot on Aliexpress do know how long shipping takes, a really long long long time. So during this month I prefer to buy things for summer, start shopping around for things to take with me on vacation. Now I do not like to take expensive sunglasses and jewelry with me on vacation, so I bought four things that would be perfect for summer.
The first thing is a pair of cat eye sunglasses, the colorway that I ordered is not pictured here but you can click the link. I got myself the black with purple/pink glasses. I kind off want the gold pair with pink glasses, but first I wanted to see how they fit my face. I mean these are really pretty but I do hope they are also big enough for my large head. Also these are $3.51, free shipping.
Next up I got a monogram silver necklace, this one wil be handmade with my own initials. aDm. An custom made necklace is normally kind of expensive but Aliexpress makes it cheap. One of the things I love about these cheaper necklaces is that they normally are Tibet silver so they do not leave your neck all green. They look like real silver but are mostly coated with it.
The bangle on the lower left is kind of special, because it has a function. You know when you take a hair-tie with you and it leaves a mark on your wrist? This bangle prevents that and makes your elastic look super cute.
Last up are the v-shape earrings, not to be confused with vagina shaped earrings. Just the letter V, or a triangle but more fancy. Not sure why I am describing it because you all can see the image. It is a lovely gold color and kind of like a hoop.
So I ordered this, what do you all want to see featured from this Aliexpress Haul?
Hey puddin’ today I got a review for the colorista sprays. Adding a pop of color in your hair is not something new, but at times you want to try it out and for those days the colorista sprays are perfect. You spray in the color and then you wash it out whenever you want. It is a easy process and you only leave a trace when spraying it in, and to be honest the towels that I messed up washed out so no damage done! There is a whole world of posible hair with the sprays, I mean it is made easy to be an mermaid now. I mean I want every color for the summer so I can use them on my vacation. It would be loads of fun. Also I am getting more blue and pink for my Harley Quinn hair. Let me give you a rundown of this product because I am sure you would love to hear more.
Yellow dress by Zac Posen
Zac posen is one of my favorite designers, I do really adore his style. But this blogpost is not an ode to Zac. It is an ode to the yellow dress he send down the carpet at the 2017 Oscars. Leslie Mann wore this dress that could be from Belle and the Beast, very princess and a lovely inspiration. I directly decided to go online to check out yellow dresses and I found a load. So if you are like me and you are planning your spring and summer wardrobe, I got links!
Pink blast-white-black-electric green
Hello my lovely readers! Today for everybody who likes to run, walk or just sit with pretty sneakers on. I got new sneakers! Not because I need shoes because I already own over a 100 pair of shoes but I got them because I tought they are stunning. Also they where on sale so I decided to treat myself. I wanted to own a pair of Barbie pink sneakers so I can wear it with black skinny jeans, a black top and a leather jacket. I mean these shoes pop! I have some bright pink lipsticks to match it but I kind of want Mac Candy YumYum to match these Nike shoes. But let me explain a few things about these shoes…
Nothing to cute allowed
I always wear black, it is my signature color. But recently I have been leaning towards white and grey. [Nothing to do with shades of grey guys, not my kind of movie] So I decided to make a cute little couple shirt post. Great for valentine or you know every other day of the week when you are hanging with your boy- or girlfriend. Or if you are single, you can wear these things for yourself. I mean it is cute and not only for couples. So I decided to check out Large.nl, one of my favorite sites. I am planning to do some hauls the moment I have funds. I would love to review and own some things from Large. They are international and have different sites for different countries and are often called EMP. No idea what does letters stand for.
But back to the shirts. I kind of dislike couple shirts that are pink, red and girly. Or have arrows telling people that you are with Bae. So I decided to pick two themes that I adore myself, but if you are into red and pink and girly…that is also okay. I decided to check out Large their Playstation categorie, one of my favorite consoles. They do have a few nice things like hats and sweatpants. But I was going for shirts, tops and jackets. Anything upper body. So in the end I decided to show you The Play In Ours, Shirt with long sleeves. It is marked down from €24.99 for €17.99. I am really debating on getting this Playstation shirt for myself. Mainly because it has an boat neck with long sleeve. I personally do not want anything to high up my neck and I mostly wear t-shirts, sometimes that is to cold. Next to the Play in Ours shirt is The Classic Playstation College Jacket, kind of preppy but still very casual. It features embroidery details and I would personally wear this jacket. It can be unisex. Or you should get it for your man and steal it.
I recently saw Assassin Creed and it was one of the most amazing movies that I saw, how they designed everything was stunning. So I recently became kind of a fan of the franchise and I am kind of wanting to play the games. So I will not be buying these shirts for myself yet but I did want to show it. Again both from Large.nl these couple shirts. Both from the game [and now also movie] Assassin Creed. The Work In The Dark t-shirt, it features three knives on a white shirt. Again a boat neck, because I like that shape for a t-shirt. Normally I would not go for white but with this design I really like it. How amazing would this be paired with black ripped jeans and long grey boots. For the male I picked The Group T-shirt featuring three assassins [see what I did, three knives, three assassins]. Very basic shirt that could be a normal print but fans would recognize it.
