PERSONAL: Bikini Stash Summer 2015

Hi everyone! The last few days I’ve done nothing else than enjoying my holiday and I have to say I can get used to the holiday life J. What’s nice is that the weather has improved and I’m now finally able to catch a summer tan. My days consist of sleeping in, going out for a morning run (still needs to be done…) and after that lying by the pool all day. Love it!

During the preparation of my vacation, I might have become a little addicted when it comes to buying swimwear. The past few weeks I’ve expanded my bikini stash considerably and for today’s post I thought it would be fun to share it with you guys.

BEAUTY - The Perfect Nail Polish during the Summer

Bonjour tout le monde! I’m writing this post from the lovely France. Me and the rest of my family – which consists of my father, mother and two younger brothers – will be staying here for the next three weeks to enjoy our summer holiday.
We’re now in a little town called Écuras, pretty close to the city of Bordeaux, where we’ll be for two weeks. We have our own house over here on a Dutch holiday village. Because the weather unfortunately isn’t too good around here, I have plenty of time to update the blog a little!
For the last week of our vacation we’ll be heading more to the south of France to a place called Saint-Cyprien and yay for me, there’s a beach! I’m a real beach bum so I’m really looking forward to this last week.

So now you’ve got an idea where in the world I’ll be for the next few weeks. Anyway, for today’s post I want to share a new beauty favorite of mine. It’s a nail polish and – in my eyes – the perfect color during the summer. The polish is from the brand Essie and called Ballet Slippers. As you can see it’s a light pink color that isn’t standing out too much. It makes your nails look healthy and well-groomed. It’s like you just walked out of the nail salon!

PERSONAL: Quick Update + New Sunglasses

Sunglasses Ray-Ban - Hat Market - Plaid Zara

Hi everyone! It’s been a while! For today’s post I just wanted to give you a quick little update. While this post has appeared on the blog and everyone around me is probably still sleeping, I’m heading to my work. I recently started working at the local bakery and today I’ve to be there at 7:30 am! So early…
Also, there is currently a real heat wave in Holland; the weather forecasts say that it will be 35 ºC today! Super nice of course but pfff… seriously way too hot to work in.
But I'll just have to keep a cool head and have to look forward to a nice cool swim in my (inflatable) pool at the end of the day…

Fortunately I can enjoy my new purchase optimal during these rare hot days in Holland. Last week I ordered my first Ray-Ban ever! It’s the Ray-Ban Round Metal 50 mm and I’m totally in love with them! For me it was surely a big investment, but it is well worth paying that price! I ordered them at smartbuyglasses.com and I’m very pleased about my experience with this shop!

Enjoy your Saturday everyone and I’ll talk to you guys soon!

Love,
Roos

NEW IN: Vagabond Modesto Boots

Happy new year everyone! I know I’m probably a bit late, but I thought better late than never.
Did you have a nice New Year’s Eve? Mine wasn’t very spectacular; I was with my family a couple days on holiday in Southern Germany to ski. When the clock struck twelve times, we watched the fireworks on the mountains, lit some sparklers off and didn’t stay up late because we had to get up early the next morning to ski. It’s weird to stand at 10:00 am on the mountains and realize that there is a whole new year ahead of us. I wish you all the best for 2015 and I hope it will be a fantastic year!

This article is dedicated to my first purchase of 2015. As you know, during December and January sale is on full swing, and I took advance of that. I thought it would be nice to share my purchase with you guys and give a review of the webshop Vagabond where I ordered it. Enjoy!

When it started to get colder in Holland I thought it was time to search for leather boots. These kind of shoes were missing in my closet and I wanted to change that. I had low cowboy boots with a squared toe in mind, and by coincidence I’ve found the perfect ones.
I saw that a blogger who I follow had posted a picture on Instagram with exactly the shoes I was looking for. The shoes are from the brand Vagabond and called “Modesto”. When I looked them up, I saw to my delight that they were marked down 50%, from 140,- to 70. In my view a bargain, ‘cause the boots are made of real leather and I probably still wearing them in a few years. I doubted a while between the black ones and the taupe colored ones, but eventually I chose the black ones because I can combine them better. Also the quality of the shoes are amazing. So all in all, a timeless purchase which I’m going to enjoy for a long time.

The webshop where I’ve ordered my boots is vagabond.com. It’s a Swedish brand and I’m very pleased with my experience with this shop. First of all: the delivery time takes not to long. I ordered the shoes on Sunday and Wednesday they’ve been delivered. They were packed up in a shoebox that was inside a bigger box for extra protection. The delivery costs contains 6,-. Because I had doubts if I should order size 4 or 5, it was nice to know that you can return your purchase for free. 
The only downside to this shop is in my opinion the payment method. You can only pay with a credit card and since I don’t have one, that’s not so handy. More options (like PayPal) would be nicer.
But apart from that, it’s a fine webshop and I would recommend it.

What is your first purchase of 2015?

Love,
Roos

MY FAVORITES: Fashion Blogger 10x

Hi guys! First I want to apologize for the three week of silence on my blog. I had a lot of important tests in the last couple of weeks at school and I had to focus on them. I think it’s a pity that I have to leave blogging on the table on that kind of moments, but at the moment it is what is it. Fortunately, now the test week is over, I’m facing some less hectic weeks and I can start blogging again. Hurray!

I spend my free time partly on bloglovin.com, a site where you can follow other bloggers so you can see for example their latest outfits post or the newest review of a beauty product. Also, people can follow you blog, what will cause you reach a larger audience so more people get in touch with your blog. On the right on this page you can see how many people are following my blog. Thus far the number of followers is 82, so almost 100! I’m really looking forward to reach this milestone :) 

On the moment I follow over 100 blogs, but of course I don’t read all the articles that bloggers whom I follow post. I have simply no time for that. Nevertheless I always try to read the articles of certain bloggers because I get a lot of inspiration from them that I sometimes can process in my own style and clothing choices. The bloggers who I’m talking about are mainly fashion bloggers, ‘cause I’m not so much engaged in make-up yet. For this week’s article I want to share my favorite fashion bloggers with you. Enjoy!

STREET STYLE: Moscow Fashion Week SS15

Hi there! In September we all followed Fashion Week Milan, New York, London and Paris closely. Even if you couldn’t been there in person, like me, social media made sure that you kept up to date. The above-mentioned cities are of course the crème de la crème of Fashion Week so only the most famous designers can show their newest collections there. Last week it was Fashion Week in Moscow, a lot less popular but should definitely not be forgotten.

One of the nicest things about Fashion Week is the street style that comes with it. You see the most fascinating outfits passing by and that gives me such a huge inspiration boost! That’s why I’ve collected for this weeks article the best FW Moscow street style pics. Let’s get inspired!
pics from le-21eme.com and theoutsider.us

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Love,
