ESSENTIALS | AUTUMN WINTER WARDROBE ESSENTIALS

14 November 2018


It’s that time of season(?) again, I was actually going to say it’s that time of year again but I’m not sure if that’s right, since I write these posts twice a year. But anyway, it’s that time of year again where I feel like I have managed to find all the essentials in my life to get through two seasons. This post always takes a lot of time as it comes with thinking about what kind of items you want to wear and like during a season, as well as buying the clothes. Now I am going to be brutally honest, this post usually takes me a while to post because I can’t afford to buy all of these clothes all at once.

I am super excited to share my A/W 2018/2019 wardrobe essentials with you though. I feel like I have really curated my wardrobe and added some interesting items to really spice up my wardrobe.

BEAUTY | AUTUMN BEAUTY FAVOURITES

12 November 2018


Every season always comes with it’s own perks. The older I get, the more I start to appreciate every season for it’s own reasons. Autumn also definitely has it its perks. I love autumn walks, crisp air and just spending time outside. But because it gets colder during this time of year, I also start using different beauty products. One example I can give you is of my makeup. During the summer I barely use any makeup and love not having any kind of foundation or tinted moisturizer on my face. During autumn I love to experiment a bit more with makeup. It’s usually this time of year where I start to get my love for makeup back. Because I have such a big love relationship with beauty products in autumn, I thought it would be super fun to write a post about my current favourite autumn beauty products.

DIARY | HOW I MOTIVATE MYSELF FOR UNI

9 November 2018



If there’s one thing I struggle with, it’s to sometimes motivate myself to get to work for uni. As much as I love my education and going to university, I sometimes find it hard to get myself back to uni work. I think we all struggle with finding your motivation again, which sucks. I can never really pin down why I feel less motivated and I think it’s normal to feel this way. As you might know, I am in the middle of my final year at university, so over the years I have learnt a lot about finding that motivation to get back to work. In today’s post I thought it would be fun to share a few tips with you.

ESSENTIALS | MY FIVE FAVOURITE TRAINERS

7 November 2018



If you know me or if you have been following my blog for a couple of years then you would definitely know that I am a trainers kinda gal. I am never really one to wear heels or heeled boots and I only recently started wearing my low ankle boots again. However, I would still always prefer to wear a pair of trainers instead. Being comfortable is one of the most important things in life, especially as I am a uni student and spend most of my day either in class or at the library. Comfort is everything in my life, but I also like to think that it’s super normal to wear trainers, as most Dutch people tend to be wearing trainers. All of my girl friends I hang out with can usually be found wearing trainers. So it has become pretty normal for me to just wear trainers every day. In today’s post I thought it would be super fun to share a few of my favourite trainers.

OUTFIT | MY NOVEMBER SPENDING BAN

5 November 2018


As much as I love minimalism and minimalist style, I love buying new clothes and looking online for hours and hours to scroll through websites looking at the latest trends. I already have a closet full of tops and blouses and another one filled with jackets and jumpers, yet I still always seem to think I have nothing to wear. In September I already had a massive clear out of my wardrobe, promising myself I would not buy that many clothes I would not end up wearing again anymore. I wanted to become less impulsive and really think about how I spend my money.

Last Monday I went into Primark after a long and stressful day at university. Before going there I was hoping to get myself a really cosy jumper or maybe a pair of cute trousers. While I was walking through Primark I had a big change of heart. While I was walking through Primark I did not want to spend any more money on a jumper or anything like that. It was kind of my intervention and I decided that as of November, I would stop buying clothes for a month. My main reason being that I definitely did not need any more clothes. My other reason being that I had set myself a few saving goals too. So until the end of November I am not allowed to spend any more money on clothes.

FIVE FAVOURITES | OCTOBER

3 November 2018



October has been such a hectic month. It has definitely been a month where I have had to struggle quite a bit with anxiety. Anxiety usually comes with me doubting myself even more than normal and also feeling a little bit more insecure than I normally would. I guess that’s something we can all relate with. Throughout the month of October I really noticed that I needed to find comfort and confidence in hanging out with friends, family, but mostly in products that brought me comfort and confidence. These five products have really helped me through this month and as these have helped me I really wanted to share them in this month’s five favourites post.
