WHITE NAILS

You saw me rocking them earlier, but especially after not being able to do a proper manicure for two weeks (archaeological excavations are not an ideal environment for nails to flourish in the first place), I craaaave for painting my nails. It’s weird to hear me say this, the girl that hated painting her nails read more »

KIKO GEL NAIL LACQUER

Showed you these in a sneak peek on Instagram already, but they’re totally worth elaborating on: these KIKO gel nail lacquers. My besties and I found them in the KIKO store in Alicante and after seeing the pink one on the nails of one of the saleswomen we immediately knew we had to get them read more »

HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS

Gosh, I’m leaving Tuesday already! I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. Luckily, I’ve created a holiday checklist years ago (and updated it ever since), so a few days ago, I looked at it again, wrote down what I still needed and headed over to the shopping mall. Love all these little “beauty-buys” read more »

THE GREY HAIR STORY

Okay well, I officially couldn’t wait to write this post until I’ve finally taken quality shots. Sorry for that, but you’ll probably see this hair in a zillion more quality shots to come, so why not elaborate on it in advance. Anyway, here’s a big cheers to my new grey hair! For the Dutchies, I read more »

HEMA SKIN CARE

After years of trying different skin care products, I can finally say I found some that are here to stay. As you might already know, I have quite a difficult skin. I used to take a birth control pil (called Diana in The Netherlands, maybe you’re familiar with it) that is actually also a treatment against read more »

TODAY I’M GOING GREY

I’ve been postponing this for weeks now, but today, I’m finally going to the hairdresser’s again! I’ve simply been too busy to go (still am, but my hair looks waaaaay too bad to put it off any longer) and as I mentioned earlier, my scalp wasn’t in the best condition to keep on bleaching it read more »

GREY OMBRE OBSESSION

I’ve showed you this pic before as part of a one day… collage, but that one day is going to arrive soon, because since fellow blogger Lauren dyed her hair grey-ish (check out how perfff it looks on her here), I’m obsessed with this ah-mah-zing grey ombre again. In preparation, I went to my GP read more »

I AM IN NEED OF A V-CUT MANICURE

When I saw the picture below on Danielle’s (Weworewhat.com) Instagram, I just couldn’t wait to RUN to the nail salon to get myself some brand new acrylic nails and a proper v-cut manicure. I mean, how a-a-a-awesome does this look (especially compared with her pointy shoes)! Unfortunately, I was at work all day (and I’m read more »

CLARISONIC MIA 2

Yesterday I already told you I bought only one thing exciting in Istanbul (at the airport on our way home, to be exact) and here it is: a Clarisonic Mia 2. I’ve been drooling over this device since forever, although my interest in it faded a little since taking the Diana birth control pil (again) read more »

MEET MY WHITE LOB

I left you guys waiting anxiously since last tuesday, but here they are: the pictures of my new shorter hair, the white lob! The hairdresser was very happy to hear he could finally chop my long locks off and give me a real do. I was slightly nervous before, but now I don’t understand why, read more »
