The Best Series to Binge During Self-Isolation

Is everyone done with the self-isolating yet? I feel like I can go on for a little while still. I have a giant list of things I can do, plus I still have finals next week. So I’ll be busy for at least a week more. However, after next week I’ll have a lot more free time to fill. I plan on doing some creative stuff with Netflix permanently on in the background. I’ve been doing that every once in a while these past weeks as well, so I now have compiled a great list of series to watch. Today I’ll give you that list, consisting of series I’ve already watched and can recommend, and a few series that seem interesting to me and are on my ‘to watch’ list. So if you’re already through your series list and you’re looking for something new to watch: you’ve come to the right place. Let’s get into it!

My Instagram Followers Choose My Eye Makeup

I know this trend has passed a long while ago on YouTube, but I still always wanted to try it: the Instagram followers choose my makeup trend. I think it’s a really fun concept, because it challenges you in a creative way. I like to be challenged creatively and I come up with challenges for myself a lot, because I think they help me learn new tricks and ways. It’s just always a great learning moment, and also a fun time in general. So a few weeks ago I asked my followers to help me pick my eye makeup, and today I’m sharing the results. Let’s get into it!

Video: Quarantine Chat and Makeup Time!

Since everyone is currently self-isolating as much as possible (or at least, I sure do hope you are!), I wanted to sit down and chat a bit about how I’m dealing with this quarantine situation and what I’m doing in my spare time. I’m just chatting and doing my makeup and I hope it will help you pass the lots of alone-time a bit! Excuse the lesser quality of the video, I explain everything about that in the video itself. Also sorry for my voice, I’ve been fighting of a cold and my voice sounds a bit worn down. But besides all that, I hope you enjoy!

I want to thank you for watching, and I’ll see you next time!

Eyeliner Hacks: Fun Things to Try with Coloured Eyeliner

I recently got myself a new coloured eyeliner and it got me thinking. A simple coloured eyeliner wing is very cute, of course, but there must be other things to do with it, right? I like doing weird things with makeup, even if I’m not even going anywhere. I just like playing with different colours and textures, and sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn’t. This time I decided to play with all the different coloured eyeliners I own and I found some fun, different ways to use them. So today I’m showing you all the ways I was able to use them, in the hopes that it may inspire you to play with your makeup more, or use these techniques. Let’s go!

Three Outfits Using Only Thrifted Clothing Items

As you might know, I’m very passionate about thriftshopping. First of all, I think it’s such a fun thing to do. I love just searching for the cutest items together with my boyfriend, and when you find something great it’s the best feeling. Second of all, it’s so budget friendly. I’ve been able to really expand my wardrobe lately, without having to spend a lot of money on it. We love that! And finally, it’s very sustainable. I think it’s very important to do what you can to help the environment, therefore I barely shop in stores anymore. I only go to stores when I need a specific thing that I haven’t been able to find in thriftstores. And since I’m so passionate about shopping second-hand, I thought I’d show you some outfits that I like to wear, to show you what cute things you can do with second-hand items. Let’s get into it!

Review: Essence Choose Your Glow Highlighter Palette

I know, I know, I said I was gonna stop with the Essence reviews. Well, I just have to excuse myself this one last time, since I got this beauty of a product and I just have to tell you about it! I got to use this while shooting for the Essence videos, and since using it back then I was just waiting for the new collection to be in store so I could go cop this palette. So the first day the collection was in stores in the Netherlands, I ran to the Kruidvat and got myself the Choose Your Glow palette. And since I’m so excited about it, I just have to tell everybody about this beauty. So let’s get into it!

My Fashion Wishlist – Fashion Inspiration and Thriftshop Search Ideas

I know recently my blog has kind of been flooded with Essence related articles. It’s been a lot, so I decided it’s time to switch things up and talk about other stuff as well. Two weeks ago I uploaded a video to YouTube where I reorganized my entire closet and went through all my clothes, shoes and accessories. If you haven’t watched that yet, I recommend you do, since it’s a lot of fun (find it here)! Anyways, I went through all my clothes and now know exactly what I do and don’t have, so I’ve been compiling a list of clothing items that I don’t yet have but do want. So today I’m sharing with you my fashion wishlist, let’s get into it!

Review: Essence AIR Eyeshadow Palette

As you may have seen recently, I got the amazing opportunity to collab with one of my favourite brands: essence. We created some videos together, and on the shoot day they gifted me some of the products that I got to play with. One product that I really wanted to try was the Air Eyeshadow Palette, so they were so kind to gift me that one too. When scrolling the webside I was immediately drawn to this specific palette, because of the lovely pastel colours. It really spoke to me, while the other element palettes didn’t really. And funny thing: I’m a Libra, which is an air sign, so in my head that’s definitely the reason I felt so connected to this palette. And all the more reason to write an in depth review on it. Let’s get into it!

The Craziest Thing I’ve Ever Done as an Introvert: Filming with Essence Cosmetics

When I’m writing this it’s a day after my first video with Essence Cosmetics went online on their YouTube channel. I’ve thought about writing about this experience, but I wasn’t sure if it would be interesting, what I would tell you exactly and if it was even allowed to be talked about. So I decided on just not writing about that, until now. Since the video went live I’ve almost continuously thought about it and the reactions. I’ve watched the video about five times now and my mind has just been racing. And since this is my personal blog where I also write about my personal thoughts, I decided to use it that way again and rant a bit about this. Because I do have a lot of thoughts.
