see them often at weheartit the ‘and that’s who I am’ pictures. Well it appears that there’s a tag with that, a tag that I am doing today. You don’t know me that well, so to get to know me I collected a bunch of images which fit me, and after today you know me a little bit more.
I am a dreamer, I can spend quite some time just daydreaming.
Sometimes I can't even tell them because I am laughing to hard. Also if I want to scare someone, that often goes wrong because  am already chuckling around the corner..
I like to laugh, but sometimes I tense to laugh at inappropriate moments.
I decided to pick ‘i avoid crowds’ instead of ‘I am scared’ or ‘I have anxiety’. I don’t think my anxieties are part of who I am, but are just something that I have. Even though I got a little help with my anxiety I still tend to avoid crowds. Especially going out at night. I like going to the cinemas or grab a terrace, but you hardly never find me in a disco
I like being surrounded by people, but I also like being alone. Go shopping, have lunch or grab a terrace I love doing it with friends or familie, but sometimes I just like being alone and have some peace around me.
I love to sing, the only problem is: I can’t sing at all, but that doesn’t deter me. I sing especially in the car as loud as possible :)

Especially with whipped cream.

I color my hair, but I always stay close to my natural brown color.

I am an extremely emotional person and I cry really easily. For example at a sad movie, when others cry or when I feel sad.

I've loved long car rides since I was a little kid. When I was younger I wanted to become a truck driver.. Well that faded away when I grew older.

I grew up with Harry Potter and still love watching the movies. And I don't think I will ever stop love watching them.

I do have brown eyes.

I rarely get postcards but I love getting them. I also like to pick out and send postcards to others!

And that's who I am, I hope you liked this kind of a post

A couple of weeks ago I ran out of cleanser, so I decided to give this clinique 3 step a go. 5 weeks ago I started using it and I wanted to share my thoughts about it with you today.
I used the Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care System type 2 for dry combination skin. There are 3 steps 1. cleanse, 2. exfoliate and 3. moisturize. All three steps need to be done twice a day.

Step 1. cleanse. Liquid facial soap mild.
This liquid soap is very soft for my skin I don't feel any form of drought or tightness. I don't even feel like I need some kind of moisturizing cream on my skin immediately after I cleansed it. It really surprised me and  I definitely recommend this if you experience a dry skin.

Step 2. exfoliate. Clarifying lotion.
I think this is the most refreshing product I ever used, it felt like there was a mint garden on my face. It also didn't make my skin dry, so my first opinion was: what an amazing product. But, after a week I started getting bumps on my forehead, which disappeared when I stopped using this clarifying lotion.
A bit pity, but this isn't not a good product for me.

Step 3. moisturize. Dramatically different moisturizing lotion. This is a very light cream that is absorbed by the skin quickly and doesn't contains perfume. It makes my skin feels nice and soft, which makes me not using a day cream every day. 

So some products are amazing, other I bit less amazing but it's quite a good set after all. But if any of you is using a good clarifying lotion or tonic, feel free to comment, since I am looking for an other one.

Today is the first official fall day. This year fall really started like fall.. It's rainy, windy and kinda cold.
Thankfully two of my closest friends and I decided to enjoy the last beautiful day of summer and decided to go out for diner last week.
I went for a light outfit since it was still quite warm when I left home, but I also brought my blazer because it became colder in the evening.
I wore a white blazer from H&M, one of my favorite jeans from an unknown french boutique flats from vision and my shirt and necklace are both from Primark.

Like I said in my previous post there was another haul coming soon. And here it is!
We made a roadtrip but there was also some time to shop in this post I show you my purchases.

I hardly can't go shopping without bringing shoes back, so neither this time. The black heeled ankle boots are from forever21, a pair of vans and the sandals are from an unknown shop.   

I bought the short, dress and sweater at forever 21

Levi's are so much more cheaper in America so I decided to bring back two pairs of jeans

I just couldn't go home without this tanktop

If been away for a while, so first I want to apologize for that.
I was kinda busy with finishing my thesis, than a few days after that it was my birthday and two days after my birthday I was leaving for a three week vacation in America.
Well, now I am back I thought to make a post about what I bought while I was in America. This haul is like the title says about beauty and random stuff I bought.

I thought that I bougth quite a lot, but while I was taking pictures it turned out not to be that bad.
I wanted to have a Naked palette for a long time, but it is so much more expensive when you buy it in The Netherlands, so I brought one back with me. Even as some makeup from bareMinerals and a Revlon colorburst in Audacious.

My little sister and I just can't come home without any jewelry. I bought the ring somewhere close to the Grand Canyons and it has a turquoise in it. The bracelet is made by a Navajo Indian.
I also brought some random stuff home. Ofcourse a souvenir from Disneyland, a clapperboard since I associate that with Hollywood and a cup from Santa Monica.

Besides this I also bought some clothes, so there will be another haul soon :)

Last year I bought the real techniques expert face brush and I loved it from day one. Unfortunately I burned it a bit with the hairdryer, when I needed it in a hurry after washing it. So a couple of days ago I ordered a new one and I thought to give some other brushes a go. While watching Zoella her videos on youtube I decided to go for some Zoeva brushes, so actually Zoella made me buy them.

Besides the expert face brush I went for:
105 Luxe Highlight brush,
the 231 Petit Crease and
the 227 Soft Definer

I'm curious if I will like the new brushes just as much as the expert face brush.
Is there anyone who already has experience with these brushes?

I don't use my fohn, straightener or curling iron as much in summer as in the winter, but it's always important to protect your hair against the heat. A while ago my little sister came home with a product she just bought, she said she really liked it and that I had to buy it too. So obedient as I am, I did and I have to say I am glad she made me buy it.
Here is why:

L'oréal says this product is the first smoothing cream that ensures smooth hair and protects the hair from the heat of your 
straightener or hair dryer up to 230 C.
Thereby will your hair be straight up to 24 hours, will it be shiny and silky and won't it frizz

It's a light and soft cream
I use it on damp hair and than use my hair dryer and flat iron or curling iron.
I am not quite sure if my hair remains straight up to 24 hours by this product or just because I have a great straightener.
But my hair definitely is shiny and silky and it won't frizz. So i am  very happy with the product.

What heat protection product do you like to use?

When it comes to mascaras, I have to admit that I'm not a loyal person. As soon as I used one empty, I'll just pop to the store and pick up the one that stands out the most in the €8-€12 price points. As long as it doesn't clump my eyelashes together, I'm happy. I pick up a different one each time and had numerous favourites 

My new mascara is from L’Oréal ParisThe mascara comes in a glossy packaging. Chic and striking, but a  shiny packaging like this is very sensitive to greasy fingers.

The brush has according to L'oreal exceptionally long fibers of less than 4 millimeters and an unique formula to make sure that each lash will be coated. It also has 4 Dimensions of a seductive glance to give your lashes: volume, length, curl and separation from the root to the tip.

The colour is an intense black and the quality of it is nice. Usually, I apply two coats of mascara but this one only required one. It adds length to my lashes and also keeps my lashes separated. It is a nice formula, it doesn't flake off on to your cheeks throughout the day.

Today I decided to give you guys a look into my on-the-go beauty essentials. If there's room in my bag I always take a little beauty bag with me so that I am always able to redo my makeup.

The beauty bag I am currently using is from Primark.I am starting with make-up and then I will discuss some skin care and other products.

I always have 4 make-up products with me.
The first thing is my garnier concealer. I am blessed with some dark circles under my eyes and I like to use it through the day to have a more awakened look.
Since I've got a bit of an oily skin I also take my rimmel stay matte long lasting pressed powder with me, to control the oil on my face.

To add some color to my cheeks after I powdered my face I use a my catrice defining blush in 070 Pinkerbell. 
And last but not least I have a lipgloss in my bag at this moment I am 
carrying the e.l.f lip gloss in candy fix with me. It's a light pink color with very sparse microshimmers. 

Skin Care & Other Products Sometimes I can get really dry hands so I always have a handcreame with me now days it's Loves me... by Oriflame. This is a nice hand cream that quickly absorbes wich is perfect for on the go.

Some other product I always bring with me are a small brush, my lens case and a parfume in travel size today it's the Naomi Campbell eau de toilette.
 I think it's been ten years ago since I first bought it. It has a spicy, warm smell and even though I prefer fruitier and sweeter fragrances now, I still like this one.

What are your on-the-go essentials?

Since my sister introduced me to Pretty Little Liars 1,5 years ago I am totally addicted.  I love the way the girls are dressed in the serie, but I like their style in real life even more. Today I made a Shay Mitchell inspired Style Steal. She looks amazing in her dresses for formal events, but  I think she also has a great casual style, like the ones below. 

Whose style do you like the most

I had a lot of spare time today, so I decided it was time to delve myself into the using of my camera again. I immersed myself into using the self-timer and therefore thought that this was a equal opportunity to start OOTD's. Since it's the first time that I used the Self-timer I need some more practising and I hope that my pictures will be much better in the future. Today I went for an easy outfit. 

I am wearing: 
Top - H&M, jacket - Forever 21, trousers - H&M, Necklace - primark

Since it was Easter I've had a lovely Brunch with my family yesterday and it was beautiful weather so a perfect chance to make some pictures outside.

I hope you've all had a great Easter!
