Fall Tag

11:28

It’s autumn, and nothing fits better than a Fall Tag. I was tagged by https://ellduclos.blog/ (<< click and visit her amazing blog!) And let the tag begin!!
1. What is one candle you MUST light every fall?
Glades candle apple cinnamon. Not too expensive but it smells sooo good!

2. When you think of fall, what does it remind you of?
It’s not a specific thing autumn reminds me of. I guess, if I think hard, it reminds me of the days when I was younger. When we go search for red and white stippled mushrooms. When we used to go for walks in the forest nearby and how we would collect as many conkers as possible. Which actually is a funny that you can read in this blogpost

3. What is your all-time favorite fall/Halloween movie?
I really love a nightmare before Christmas.

4. What Halloween costume do you have in mind?
One of my biggest wishes is to go to a Halloween themed party. Sadly, here in the Netherlands we don’t really celebrate Halloween, nor do we have trick or treating. (We’ve got Sint Maarten. Which I will tell you about later when it’s November 11th.) So, there is no costume in my mind. But if I ever get to go to a Halloween party I would look for a costume that will go very well with bloody make-up. That would be so cool to put on my face!

5. What is your favorite fall trend? 
I always loved faux fur coats. I finally bought one myself and I think it’s perfect to wear it in fall. Winter will be too cold and rainy for the coat, and I would need a real winter coat. But fall is not too cold not to hot for a faux fur coat.

6. When you think of fall, what drink comes to mind?
Rooibos Tea. That tea has such a warm flavour and smell. I can drink rooibos tea all day long!  And of course hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is for Autumn and Winter.

7. What is your go to fall beauty product? A must have staple!
Dark lipstick shades. Again: in a recent post I wrote about my favourites. Check it out here.

 8. Do you prefer apple pie or pumpkin pie? 
I only ate pumpkin pie once in my life. That was a year ago when I visited the USA. I really really liked but since it’s not available or known in our country I choose apple pie with whipped cream. (But I would love to own a good pumpkin pie recipe!)

9. Do you have any fall traditions? If so tell us all about it!
No, not really. I know me and my mum will go and collect conkers and nuts and put them in a bowl on the table. But it’s not a tradition. We just love the way it looks in our living room and bed room.

10. The moment of truth, is fall your favorite season?
No, it’s not my favourite. I think spring is my favourite because feeling the sun getting stronger and seeing the world coming alive makes me feel so happy. But autumn is also a good season. I just really love every season because every season got something of its own beauty.

Now of course I must tag others for this Fall tag. These people are lovely bloggers with great stories on their blogs. It’s definitely worth your time checking them out!

Hello Autumn! I love you

14:44

Crunchy leaves and the wind howling around our house. Autumn! I’m so looking forward to it.
I’m always looking forward to each season and today I made a list why I love autumn so much.

1. Dark lipstick shades! I love dark lipsticks but only in autumn/winter. My favourites are from left to right: Rimmel 810 one-of-a-kind,Topshop Bookworm, Rimmel Kate 107, Sephora Rouge Cream
2. Sweater weather. I love the warmth of sweaters. I’m always cold but sweaters are the best to keep me warm. And I love to combine it with a cute collar underneath.

3. The crunchy and colourful leaves. When I walk or ride my bike I love to step/ride over the crunchy leaves. The sound is just so nice.
4. Time for candles and fairy lights! In summer, I don’t have candles burning or lights on because mosquito’s are a big fan of those lights and I don’t like mosquitos. But now I can burn as much candles as I want and put my fairy lights on without unwanted guest in my bedroom.

5. I don’t feel guilty about staying inside. In summer, when I’m on my laptop I feel like I should be outside, enjoying the sun or doing cool stuff with friends instead. But in winter, I don’t feel guilty about it at all!

6. Collecting conkers. They remind me of when me and my sister where younger and would collect as much conkers as possible. And then create our own conker ‘fries’ shop. In shoe boxes we would separate the big once from the small ones. Make our own price list, using a pot ladle to serve the conker (fries) to the costumers in self-made bags in different sizes. We could play with that for hours.

L.O.V. highlighters

13:44


I’m a little highlighter obsessed thanks to my sister. I love to buy those shiny products. And sometimes I just must buy a new highlighter. And - as far as I know- we have new brand in our drugstores: L.O.V. 
My eye fell on the makeup stand when I entered Etos and I was of course very curious. And since I was about to treat myself that day I did not buy one but two highlighters. Look at these beauties!
The packages are lovely. The black one, the no. 100 ‘glazed rose’ has this thing that if you hold the package in the light, the white lines and letters colour in prismatic colours. Hence the name on top of it. I just realise this while looking at the package and thinking how I would describe the colour on the package... it’s called LOVlights prismatic luminizer. I didn’t come up with the word prismatic myself. My English vocabulary is big, but not as big to name colours prismatic…  The other one is The GLOWrious highlighting & bronzing palette no. 010 Rose addiction. And is just an eye catcher with its shiny rose colour.
Aren’t they shiny? Well I love them. And look at those swatches. I love how bright and glittery the middle one is from Glowrious and the prismatic one. love the metallic in these two. The highlighter on the left in the Glowrious is the least favourite highlighter since it’s less shiny and less visible. But it’s perfect for when I don’t want to make the highlighter the eyecatcher and just want to brighten up my face a little bit.
Glowrious also has a bronzer. Which comes in very handy now I’m tanning, and my foundation gets a little too light for my face, but I can’t switch to my darker shade of foundation yet. That’s why I bought it. I had only planned on buying one highlighter. But then I convinced myself that it would be handy. And I guess I’ve made a good decision to listen to that little voice in my head this time.
I’ve been wearing the middle highlighter the most of this palette and I change it up with the prismatic highlighter. These two are my favourite this summer.
