Review: Foto op Aluminium van Canvas Company

This article is for my Dutch readers.

Een tijdje geleden werd ik weer door Canvas Company benaderd of ik nog één van hun producten uit wilde proberen. En daar zeg ik natuurlijk geen nee tegen! Ik had nog een foto van mijn broertje waar iedereen in mijn familie echt gek op is en die we nog graag eens opgehangen wilden hebben, dus dit kwam natuurlijk goed uit. Ik koos ervoor om deze foto af te laten drukken op geborsteld aluminium. Ben je nou benieuwd hoe dit eruit is gekomen? Lees dan vooral verder!

What’s Wrong With Brands Labeling Themselves Cruelty-Free

In my journey towards a completely cruelty-free cosmetics collection I’ve ran into this problem so many times: a brand calling itself cruelty-free, while not actually being cruelty-free. It’s a bit of a struggle to find out which brands you actually want to support and which ones you don’t. But why is this such a problem and how do I work around it? I’ll tell you all about it in today’s post!

Review: Eliza Jones Super Booster Brightening Serum with Vitamin C

Three months ago I started using the Eliza Jones Brightening Super Booster serum, and I’ve gone through one container of it now. So, I thought it was time to tell you guys about this product as well, since it’s such a staple in my skincare routine. I used this product once a day for three months, so what exactly did it do for my skin? And since this also has vitamin C in it, is it a good, low-budget vitamin C serum? If you want answers to these questions, don’t be afraid to keep reading!

I Got My Disposable Camera Developed…

Last year I decided I wanted to give a disposable camera a try. It seemed so fun to me and I’ve never used one in my life, so I felt like it was time. I bought mine while on holiday in Germany and I took pictures throughout the rest of 2019. I finally managed to get them developed and I’m quite happy with the results. Next time I’m not using a disposable anymore, but I’ll use an analog camera. That’s because only 17 of my 27 pictures turned out somewhat readable. Which is quite sad, since I did take some pictures which I was very excited about, but I’m never getting those back. Anyways, the pictures that did turn out are pretty fun ones, so I thought I’d show some of them to you. Let’s get into it!

Four Reasons Why You Should Shop Secondhand

I am a big fan of secondhand fashion. It almost only has pros. Literally the only con to it is that sometimes it’s hard to find specific items. But nowadays even that is easier to do with all the secondhand clothing apps going around, where you can search exactly for what you need. So, with a thing that has so little cons, what exactly are the pros? Today I tell you four big reasons why shopping secondhand clothing is such a great thing. Let’s get into it!

The Best Low-Budget VEGAN Beauty Products!

Recently I’ve started expanding my vegan beauty collection. My collection is already completely cruelty free, but I think having vegan products is also important. Because why should an innocent being have to suffer for us to look pretty? It’s perfectly possible to look and feel pretty without using animals. So that’s why I wanted to make a post dedicated to my favourite vegan beauty products, which are also very affordable, to show you how easy it is to create a vegan beauty collection. And that vegan products are definitely not any less good than other products. Let’s get into it!

Review: HEMA Reusable Make-up Removing Cloths

I was doing some casual online shopping at HEMA (when am I not?) and I ran into these reusable make-up wipes. I’ve been looking to get something like this for a while now, but everything similar seems to be so expensive. Except for these ones. So when I saw them I immediately added them to my order and paid for them. I was so curious to see if something like this actually worked! Make-up cloths which only need water to remove make-up? It just sounds too good to be true, especially for this price. Let’s see if the myths are actually true!

How a Hobby Can Sometimes Be Stressful

As most of you know, I have been working on this blog, my hobby, for a long time now. We’re actually nearing my 7th anniversary. However, over the span of those 7 years I have not consistantly blogged. I actually started fully blogging again last september. I’ve really been enjoying it and I’ve been working really hard on it and I’ve been having some realizations. If it were up to me, I’d do this the rest of my life and turn it into my full time job. However, right now that’s not an option, so I’m keeping it as my hobby. But that is kind of where the problem lies for me. It is a hobby, but since I want to turn it into a job, I’ve started treating it like a job more. This in turn made me more and more stressed. Let’s talk about that for a second, because I’m sure there’s more people with the same issues.

Review: Essence Wanna Bee My Honey Trend Edition

When Essence announced they were going to release a collection inspired by bees and honey, I was on the one hand very excited, but on the other very skeptical. I was afraid they were going to release a collection made with honey, which would actually be a lot worse for the bees. Thankfully they didn’t do that, but they actually released a very fun, all vegan, make-up collection. I love what this trend edition represents and I’m the biggest fan of bees and the colour yellow. So I just had to get myself some of the products, and I will be reviewing them today. Let’s get into the Essence Wanna Bee My Honey trend edition!
