Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss by L.A. Girl Cosmetics

gloss

The liquid matte trend is here to stay! I’ve seen a lot of amazing liquid mattes on the internet, but a lot of those aren’t sold here in the Netherlands, and that makes it a little too expensive for me.( I’m still hoping those Anastasia liquid lipsticks will eventually come to the make up stores here in the Netherlands.)

Today I’m reviewing the budget friendly version, the”Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss” by L.A. Girl Cosmetics. I love a matte lip and was dying to try these out. It’s a matte gloss that comes in sixteen colors. L.A Girl Cosmetics describes it as an ”Intense color in a flat finish for all day wear. The long wearing formula goes on as a high pigmented liquid and dries to a flat matte finish leaving lips colored in gorgeous velvety perfection that last and lasts.” 

Sounds great right! Curious to see which colors I picked ?

Yay, I’m finally able to show you the new blog design!   It was time for a fresh start, especially since I’ve had to say goodbye to my old trusty Macbook. I’m still working on this design and in the next few weeks you’ll see more changes, so it’s a work in progress.

I’m also planning to focus on more than just fashion in the next few months, you’ll be seeing more beauty blogposts and I’ll be sharing much more of my life and work as a singer/songwriter.

I hope you like it!

OOTD // My Sweet Lord

print6

Hi! So, it’s official, my summer holiday has started! I travelled a weekend to Vlieland, and performed there with my Fleetwood Mac Tribute band ‘Seven Wonders‘. A long weekend of beach fun, music, friends and lots of alcohol, card games..well just the perfect way to kickstart my time off from work. :)

sadly had to part ways with my trusty Macbook btw, since I accidentally dropped a glass  of water over it…ARGH:(

Since I’ve been back from Vlieland, I’ve been revamping my boyfriend’s old Macbook. (So happy we kept it)  Let’s just say, it’s been a little bit of a struggle. But it’s finally working, and it also stopped raining, so I managed to shoot an outfit again.

I’m also planning to revamp my blog, trying to set up a new layout sometime this week. YAY!

Today’s outfit features a long lost friend of mine, my River Island printed overalls, or catsuit, or whatever the hell you call it. It’s been hiding in the back of my closet, so glad I kept it! Curious?

Music Monday // Nina June – For Love

 

Hi! Hope you’ve had a good weekend. Today I’m featuring an artist I really admire and have had the pleasure of working with, since she was one of my vocal coaches while I studied music at the Rock Academy.

She’s made a beautiful song and captured some amazing visuals to go along with it. The video is directed by artist and filmmaker David Benjamin, and shows the performance of dancer and choreographer Remy Tilburg in an abandoned warehouse.  ”For Love” is the first release of ”Bon Voyage”.

Check out more of Nina June on Itunes and on Spotify

Rose Gold Hair

I’m done. Done with the grey/granny hair. It’s such a hassle trying to get to the right shade, it fades, my hair keeps warming up and on top of that, it costs a lot of money… Every visit to the hairdresser takes a full day of bleaching and I’m slowly ruining my bathroom with all the blue and purple silver shampoo. I mean, I really love it, but I’m really done maintaining the color. Also, for some reason it looks amazing in my blog pictures, but in real life it’s dry and has yellow/orange patches, which I hate.

So I’ve been spending a lot of time on Instagram and Pinterest, looking for some new hair color inspiration. And I found it! It’s pastel, warm, peachy pink and so beautiful! It’s rose gold! Check out some of the amazing hairdo’s I found online.

The ‘Girlfriend’ jeans is kind of a similar type of jeans as the boyfriend jean cut, but just a little bit more girly. It’s a classic type of jeans, tighter, higher rise, and has a tapered and slim and straight leg. Curious? Take a look at some of the jeans I’ve picked out for you!
