24 hours before leaving towards my vacation destination, I decided to shell out a lot of money for a nice little gadget. I am kind of a tech geek, I also adore statistics. The one thing that I am not is a watch person. Owning a large scala of expensive watches I have to admit that I almost never wear a watch because most of the times I forget or do not like the feeling of it on my wrist. Some time ago I used to own a fitbit flex. I also wrote an article about it. But after a long time the band somehow irritated my skin and I decided to sell the flex and get a different one. Being the pondering girl that I am I did not buy a new one. For 3 months I went on and checked different trackers like Garmin and Jawbone. Even one of my favorite brands Fossil has wearable technology. Still I decided to go for the design that I love and get a Fitbit Blaze. Now I can make a lame pun about a blazing hot watch, but I will just get on with reviewing this little band of information.
Innocent smoothie plus
Green smoothies are perfect little green monsters to add to a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes you do not have time to make your own smoothie or you need inspiration and then I personally like to buy a smoothie at the supermarket. I never go to fancy places to get smoothies, that is also not a thing where I live. So I walked into the AH and grabbed myself an Innocent smoothie. I really like their package and the color green looked good. Also it is a super smoothie meaning it contains super foods. Wanna hear what I think? Keep on reading.
Happy New year!
I have been a horrible blogger, but I do want to blog more in the new year. With new content and the things that I find interesting enough to share. Because I do love being creative and taking pictures. My own opinion is worth to be heard. Because in 2017 I held my tongue for to long.
My life has been a rollercoaster in 2016 and I do feel like I have found my footing and my life is the way I want it to be at the moment. Many good things are coming and I have found the people who are there for me no matter what. I grew in many ways, developing my own style and losing 15 kilos in a year. Also my familie went from 2 cats to 4 and it was a great choice. My confidence went from crushes to a bit better and for 2017 I want to gain my normal confidence back. Meeting new people but also loving the ones in my life at the moment.
Above a little vain collage of my instagram pictures from my personal instagram. These pictures got the most likes of 2016 and the picture next to it is my own favorite picture. It is me in my favorite boots and Christmas dress. I think it landmarks the moment that my mirror did not show a monster but just me.
I want to keep improving myself in many ways.
Ps: New layout! ♥
Recent gooide ik heel mooi mijn Harley Quinn cosplay op Instagram. Ik werd heel snel Insta-famous met dik 43 likes, wat natuurlijk niet zoveel voorstelt. Maar ik kreeg wel een aantal lieve comments en dus kwam ik tot de conclusie dat ik hier een leuk artikel over ging schrijven. Natuurlijk niet een zelf-geilend artikel over hoe leuk ik uitzie met twee kleuren oogschaduw. Maar hoe jij ook deze cosplay kan doen op een budget want daar kreeg ik enorm veel vragen over. Dus vandaag een artikel met alle dingen die ik heb gebruikt [waaronder de netpanty and booty shorts die niet op de foto staan, ik bespaar jullie nog even mijn billen.] Ik also Limburger ben mij al aan het voorbereiden op heel veel Harley Quinn’s, dan zal ik deze outfit ook niet rocken maar wat anders. Maar voor Halloween kunnen jullie mij door de straten zien huppelen als Suicide Squad’s eigen Harley Quinn. Gezien Harleen Quinzel toch wel 1 van mijn favoriete karakters is. Dus ja, lees even verder!
I personally do not feel that you NEED to wear make-up when working out. But I do like myself a little make-up when I am going to sport and that made me wonder. Why do people wear make-up when sporting and what is my opinion about this subject. Let me start with saying what I wear when sporting, I tend to wear a full face of make-up or at least the above products. Most of the times I add a lipstick or gloss that does not move during my work-out because nobody wants it all running over their face. My current favorite lip product for sport is Bourjois Rouge Velvet it gives amazing color payoff and stays firmly in place but also these glosses are amazing. When in doubt always go for a liquid lipstick like OCC, Anastasia or Dose of colors. But I am getting sidetracked. I tend to powder my face before running out of the door but to be honest I will get shiny and sweaty when working out so I do not mind. Also I tend to powder in my eyebrows and spray some perfume that is pretty basic. Now I do have to admit that I LIVE for a winged eyeliner and I drop that on my face also when I am working out. As a volleybal player I think it is also slightly intimidating when I stare them down with my sharp winged liner. But then again I am less serieus with my bright pink sport shoes.
So I do wear make-up when working out, but I never carry make-up in my sport bag. Why? Because I go to play sports and not to look the prettiest on the field. The moment I start I care very little for appearance and so much more for results. Who cares is my eyeliner is not perfect at the end as long as I won the match I am happy.
I once had a teammate years ago that asked me during a training to look in her eyes. I looked expecting her to ask me if she had a bug or lash in her eye. But she said “Is my make-up still okay?”. I am not a fan of that mindset during sport. I do not mind people taking a quick selfie but sport is not a fashion show.
So what is your opinion about wearing make-up during sport and what is your preference?
At the moment I am hooked on Scream Queens and with Halloween round the corner I decided to make an outfit inspiration post that is perfect for a night of Netflix and ch…uh..scream queens. I mixed Halloween with sexy lingerie and chill clothing. Who has not heard about Scream Queens: The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. SCREAM QUEENS is a new killer comedy-horror series from award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”), Brad Falchuk (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”) and Ian Brennan (“Glee”). Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by CHANEL OBERLIN (Emma Roberts, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” “Scream 4”). But when anti-Kappa DEAN CATHY MUNSCH (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Halloween,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “True Lies”) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc across the campus. The outfit I picked fit the series: Girly yet spooky. Sexy yet comfy. I mixed sexy underwear with relaxed outfits.
Trend it up have two new highlighters and two new bronzers. I have enough bronzers and I decided to get a natural highlighter. I have really shiny highlighters and those give me shimmer for days but I wanted a more everyday highlighter. There are two kinds 010 and 020. The first is a silver/pearl tone one and 020 is more gold. Because I have a light skin tone I decided to grab 010. It is from the brand Trend it up, sold at DM. [German drugstore.] It is a budget highlighter and if you click read more you can see swatches.
