Last Year

It's almost 2014, so it's time to reflect on some things that have happened in 2013.
To be honest, this year wasn't a very good one for me. I got ill a lot (this is the first time this year that I've gone three weeks without getting ill) and I was feeling terribly unhappy for half a year due to panic attacks and such horrible things. BUT since December things have been looking up for me! I recently found out that I have asthma. I know that's not something to be happy about, but at least now I know why I got sick so much! My immune system was so weak because my body was constantly fighting to breathe. Not anymore! I can finally breathe properly and I have so much more energy now. And I don't get sick every other week or so. So for me, it is a good thing that I found out I have asthma.

Even though 2013 wasn't my best year, it also brought a lot of good things. I started this blog, dipdyed my hair for the first time, got some new friends and I got my first job! Also, I've been feeling so much happier for the past two months. I still have a panic attack every now and then, but I don't let them stop me from doing things anymore. They were so bad somewhere halfway this year (I was barely able to go to school) but I'm doing much better now.

I've got a lot of exciting things planned for 2014. In January, I'll have saved up enough money to buy a good camera (the Canon EOS 600D for those of you wondering) which means better quality photos and videos! I really want to start blogging more and making more videos. In 2014 I will start on my last year of high school and I need to seriously thing about what I'm going to do after. Only time will tell.

Was 2013 a good year for you? What do you have planned for 2014? Let me know in the comments ^.^

Have a good year

Lush Christmas Lip Products

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way to Lush! On a recent school trip to the Hague, we went to Lush and I bought these amazing products ^.^

Both of these products taste like Coca Cola, which is amazing because you don't have to worry about getting gross lipscrub in your mouth. There are also teeny tiny (eatable) hearts in the lipscrub. It makes my lips supersoft, even in this cold, horrible weather. The liptint is an orange-red colour and I think it looks really christmas-y. The only thing I don't really likeabout it, is the package. I can barely open it and when I manage to, I can't apply it real quick because I need a brush, otherwise my fingers will be red for the rest of the day (I've had that experience). It does stay on for a really long time, so that makes up for it. Oh and in the last photo it looks as if I have a really bad moustache. Guess I didn't realize Movember was over :').

I think these christmas products would make perfect gifts and I think the lipcolour would look really festive on anyone!

Have a nice day!

Experimenting With Makeup #2 | Au Naturel With A Pop Of Colour

Hi guys! Today I have a new Experimenting With Makeup for you! (And that rhymes, heheh) And I even made a tutorial! This morning I realized, that I never really wear any bright coloured eyeshadows, so I decided to give bright colours a chance ^.^ I'm very pleased with the result, so I hope you'll like it too!

Experimenting With Makeup #1 | Cara Delevingne Cannes Film Festival

Hi guys! I'm starting a new thing called Experimenting With Makeup, because I love trying new things with makeup so I thought I could share the results with you. I've already done something similar with a Rapunzel look and I loved doing that. Playing around with makeup is, in my opinion, one of the best things to do when you have a lot of makeup. I'll try to put up a post like this every single week from now on ^.^

This week, I tried to copy Cara Delevingne's look at the Cannes Film Festival. I used this tutorial from the amazing Dope2111 and I think it came out pretty well. Of course I'm not half as gorgeous as Cara, but who really is?

Oi, I'm sorry for the bitchy pose in the upper right photo, but what can I say? I'm not very photogenic :') I'm quite pleased with the results, but I think it would've looked better if I had just used a bit more black. And if I looked a little bit more like Cara. I think this look is ideal for parties, or maybe the upcoming christmas season? I would definitely suggest giving it a try, because it's pretty easy to recreate and I think it would look good on everyone.

So, are you going to give this look a try or do you let it pass? 
Have a nice day!

Last Minute Halloween Tutorial: Grunge Rock Girl

Hi guys! I finally made a new video today! It's my very first makeup tutorial so don't expect too much from it. I had a lot of fun making this video so I might just make another last minute halloween tutorial soon. Unfortunately, we don't celebrate halloween in the Netherlands, so I never have a good reason to do something weird with my makeup. This year is different though, because someone from school is throwing a halloween themed party for her birthday. I haven't decided what I should go as yet, but I think it'll either be a cat or Tinkerbell. What should I do? Please help me out in the comments!

Have a nice day!

Music of the moment #4

Picture taken from WeHeartIt

Hi guys! I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for such a long time, but I was busy. I haven't been feeling very great lately, so I went to my GP and I got my blood tested. Then I went to the hospital and I got my blood tested again. I also got a long function test and I'm getting another one next week. They don't know what's wrong with me yet, but they think that I'm allergic to something and that's the cause of my weakened immune system. I really hope that they find something and that I can do something to get healthy again, because I'm feeling sick again and I'm bored out of my mind. I never thought that I would say this, but I'd much rather go to school. 

Another reason for my lack of posts, is that I feel so uninspired. I just don't know what to write about. I click on 'New Post' everyday and then I just stare at a blank page, not knowing what to do. But now I figured it was time for another music of the moment, because it's been quite a while since I've done one of these. So here it is: a list of five of my favourite songs of the moment.

The Sky Is Falling - Bodhi Jones

Yes, this is kind of a sad song, but I can really relate to it. My anxiety has gotten a lot better lately,but this song perfectly describes the way I felt when it was at its worst. I never truly feel like I can relate to songs, because there are so many songs about love and I don't know a thing about love, but I could definitely relate to this song, so it's in my top 5.

Impossible - Carrie Hope Fletcher

I love Carrie and I love this song. So it's basically the perfect combination. Carrie is so talented and I wish I could sing as well as her! I want to see her in Les Mis so badly, but I'm in the Netherlands. And Les Mis is in London. *cries silently in foetus position*

Clarity - Zedd feat. Foxes

I feel like I'm literally the last person on earth to discover this song. But the rest of his album 'Clarity' is amazing too and I can't stop listening to it. You might want to give 'Hourglass' and 'Spectrum' a try :)

Move - Little Mix

Yay I'm so excited for the new Little Mix album! This song makes me want to dance, so I think it deserves a spot in my top 5.

Can We Dance - The Vamps

I just really like The Vamps okay? And I think they're getting kinda famous now, which is pretty cool, because I've been watching their covers on Youtube for a long time now. I hope they'll release some new songs soon ^.^

Sooo this was my top 5. I hope I'm gonna get better soon and that I'm going to get some inspiration for my blog. Do you recommend any songs that I should listen to?

Have a nice day :)

How to live a healthy life?

That's just something I've been thinking about for the past few days, considering I was sick two weeks ago and I'm feeling poorly AGAIN. I'm literally getting sick of being sick so often! I know my immune system is quite weak due to anxiety issues and stress, but there's gotta be something I can do to make it better! So here's what I want to do:

I don't exercise at all, so I need to get off my lazy bum and start getting fit and healthy. I've already started doing yoga for flexibility, but I might also start doing some power yoga.

Change my diet
I'll eat anything with sugar. Which is actually really, really bad, so I want to start eating more fruits & veggies instead of all those sugary sweets.

Drink more water instead of soda
I drink a lot of diet coke and ice tea, and I hardly ever drink plain water. So I want to start drinking at least 4 glasses of water a day. It might not seem that much, but going from none to 4 is quite a big step :b

Sleep more
I never get enough sleep. I'm always tired, but still I go to bed far too late and my alarm goes off far too early. Need to change that.

How do you stay healthy? Feel free to share your health secrets with me in the comments ^.^

Have a nice day!

Inspirational Post | Pastel Hair

Secretly I've always loved pastel coloured hair. It makes me think of fairies or mermaids and I really like the way it looks. This summer, I dipdyed my hair pink, which I loved, but I don't think I could ever muster up the courage to go through the whole bleaching/dyeing process. And I don't think I could get away with pink/lilac/turquoise hair. But fortunately there are people who look great with it, so that I can look at their pictures and share them with you!

And now I really want pink or lilac hair. Looking at all of these pictures might not be such a good idea after all :')

Edit: I was playing around a bit with Photoshop and I figured out how to change hair colours, so of course I tried pastel hair! This is the result:

I don't really think I could pull it off, but it's funny to know what I'd look like.
What do you think of pastel hair? Would you ever dye your hair such a crazy colour?

Have a nice day! XXX :)

The Liebster Award

First of all, I would like to thank my family and my friends for always believing in me and.. No, I'm just kidding. But I got nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Dutch bloggers Claudia and Inge from We Love The Sun ! All I need to do now is answer their 11 questions, tell 11 facts about myself and nominate some other bloggers. Unfortunately I'm not going to nominate anyone because I don't follow any new bloggers that haven't already gotten a Liebster nomination.

So, let's start with the questions!

1. What's your favourite makeup product?
I think my favourite makeup product is eyeliner, because I love winged eyeliner and I don't think I could live without winged eyeliner.

2. What's the funniest video you've ever watched?
This is a really tough question for me, because I watch lots of hilarious videos. But if I really have to choose one? I think it's this one:


3. What's your biggest blunder?
Let's just say that it was in my first year of highschool and it had something to do with my huge rucksack and me falling over. Fortunately, only my friends saw it happening.

4. What's your favourite type of candy?
I really really really like sour worms. Like, a lot a lot.

5. Who's your favourite actor?
Max Irons, because he's a really good actor and he's the sexiest guy alive. And his accent! *drools on keyboard*

6. What's your favourite perfume?
Alien by Thierry Mugler.

7. What's your favourite season?
Winter, because I get to dress up all warm and cosy, it's my birthday and I love the christmas season ^.^

8. What's your favourite app on your phone?
I like to pretend I'm living in the stone age, so I own a phone that doesn't even work with apps.

9. How long have you been blogging?
I've blogged for a loooong time before I started this one. But I never felt like I really loved it. Until I started Veralette on the 21st of March 2013.

10. Which celebrity would you want to meet?
Harry Styles. We belong together.

11. What is the last thing you bought?
The last thing I bought, was a present for one of my friends. I haven't given it to her yet, so I'm not going to tell you what it is :b

Eleven facts about me:

1. I'm a lipgloss/lipbalm addict. I feel naked without it.
2. I know all the steps to we're all in this together from High School Musical.
3. I'm secretly convinced that I'll marry a certain Englishman whose initials are H. E. S. If you figure out which handsome Brit this is, leave it in the comments ^.^
4. I've always had a thing for guys with hipster glasses.
5. I love high heels, but I love my black Converse shoes more.
6. I miss my dipdyed hair, but I'm not sure if I want to dye it again.
7. If I was a Disney princess, I would want to be Ariel. Come on, mermaid tail + handsome prince?! It just isn't fair. Why can't I be a mermaid?
8. Something I always think about when I watch or read Harry Potter is, what if J.K. Rowling actually is a wizard, who decided to write about her adventures as if it was fiction?
9. I dream about pizza a lot.
10. My favourite ice cream flavour is chocolate chip cookies :3
11. I could watch "Bridget Jones' Diaries" every day and still not get bored of it.

I'm sorry I'm not nominating anyone, but I just don't know who to nominate! By the way, my next post is going to be my 50th! I never would have thought that I would ever write that many posts :o!

Have a nice day!

My Favourite Room Items

Hi guys! A few months ago, I posted a Room Tour which was quite popular. So today I want to show you five of my favourite room items!

Though you might not recognize it at once, the first item is already shown on the picture above. It's my IKEA PS MASKROS pendant lamp. I love this thing. I already expressed my love for it in my Room Tour post, but once isn't enough. It's the eyecatcher of the room. It creates flower shapes on my walls. It's amazing, breathtaking and I'm a little over exaggerating, but that's just how much I love this lamp.

The second item is, obviously, my piano. My piano skills are getting better and better and I'm sure it'll take just a few more months until I'm the next Mozart. No, I'm kidding, I will never be as good as Mozart, but I'm enjoying it a lot ^.^

The third item, is my rubber ducky collection. Call me immature, but I am actually proud of my collection. I remember buying every single rubber ducky I came across. My obsession with rubber duckies is over now and I think it'll take a while before I buy another rubber ducky again.

The fourth item is actually a new addition to my room, because it's been there for about three weeks. I bought it in a Dutch themepark called the Efteling (if you're ever in the Netherlands, you should go there!) and it's simple, but cute. I really like butterflies, so I had to buy it when I saw it.

The fifth item is even newer. It's my grandparents' old record player. Though I don't have many records yet, I already adore this thing. Music sounds so much more vintage and the record player gives it this warm sound, that you don't have when you play music from an Ipod.

These were five favourite items in my room. If you could make a list of five favourite items in your room, what would it look like? Leave it in the comments!

Have a nice day!

Autumn wishlist

Hi guys! I'm sorry I haven't blogged in a while, but I had a very bad case of bloggers block. My inspiration was gone and I had no idea what to write about. But I'm back now! Officially it's still summer, but with all the rain that's happening over here, it feels a lot like autumn, which means.. I HAVE A NEW EXCUSE TO GO SHOPPING! So, it's time for a new wishlist ^.^

I NEED a polka dot cardigan this autumn. But I haven't found one that I loved yet. I'm looking for something that looks like the one shown in the picture, but a little fluffier, if that makes sense :') If you know what I mean and you've seen one somewhere, please tell me in the comments!

I've always loved the idea of having an old record player and being able to enjoy old records, so you could understand how happy I was when my grandparents gave me their old one! I've already listened to the old Grease record my mom listened to when she was my age and I love it! I can't wait to go to second hand stores and buy some other records.

A Sherlock coat. Do I need to say more? SHERLOCK.

Yes, I already own a onesie, but one can never have enough onesies, right? Especially when they have polka dots on them and are inspired by Minnie Mouse.

I never really liked Dr. Martens shoes. I kind of hated them and thought they were far too manly and big. But recently my style has changed a bit and I've started to really like them. Especially the Dr. Martens shoes with flowers. Just a shame they're so expensive..

Did you know that I've done figure skating for a few years? So, of course I love the skater skirt! And yet, I still don't own any skater skirts. Need to change that soon. I'd love to pair them with some mickey mouse tights. I saw Little Mixes Jade Thirlwall wearing these and they're the cutest things ever!

And now I just need a job so I can afford all of this :'). What are some of the musthaves on your autumn wishlist? Tell me in the comments!

Have a nice day!

Music of the moment #3

Hi guys! It's been quite a while since I've written my last Music of the moment post, so I thought it was about time I'd write a new one ^.^ Here are five songs that I've been listening to a lot in the past few weeks. Enjoy! 

1. Love Is Endless by MoZella

This is such a cute and happy song! I heard it for the first time when I was watching "Life As We Know It" and I NEEDED to know what it was called. Thank God for Shazam :')

2. Sweet Sweet Melody by Katie Sky

Again, it's just a really cute song. It changes your mood immediately and it makes you want to dance around your room. You might recognize it from Zoella's 1 million subscriber video ^.^

3. Sweet Perfection by NeverShoutNever!

I. Can't. Handle. The amount of cuteness these lyrics contain. But I'm listening to it anyway.

4. Best Song Ever by One Direction

I just had to add this one to my list. The video is hilarious and it's a good song to DANCE ALL NIGHT TO THE BEST SONG EVEEEERRRR. I'm super excited for This Is Us by the way :3

5. Flaws by Bastille

Can Bastille please, PLEASE come to the Netherlands? I want to see them live! I could just as well add their full album "Bad Blood" to my list, because it''s bloody good (see what I did there? Heheh).

That completes my third Music of the moment post! What have you been listening to a lot lately? 

Have a nice day ;)

Summer Haul ^.^

Hi guys! I bought quite a lot of stuff this summer, but it was too much to show it all in one post, so I decided to make a haul video. This is the fourth video on my Youtube channel, and I have to say, I'm starting to like filming videos more and more every time I make one. I'm still getting used to the whole "talking-in-front-of-a-camrea-thing" so I'm still a little bit awkward :p I'm sure it will get better when I make more videos.

Have a nice day and enjoy watching ^.^

The Ebelin Makeup Egg

Of course I could not go to Germany without going to the DM! I bought a few things there including this curious object: the Ebelin Make up Egg. You've probably seen the Beauty Blender before, which is basically the same thing. I've never owned a Beauty Blender because I think they're a bit too expensive, so when I found these I just had to buy one. It cost €2,95 so it was worth a try.

But how does it work? Well, it comes in a small round plastic box. The egg itself is quite small, UNTIL you make it moist (ugh moist). It gets about as big as the palm of your hand. Then you need to squeeze it until it feels almost dry. After this step it's ready for applying foundation/concealer. To be honest, I don't really like this thing for applying foundation. I feel like it takes a lot more time to apply my foundation and it doesn't look as good as when I apply it with my Zoeva buffer brush. The foundation looks smudgy and the hairs on my face are more apparent. I do like using it for applying concealer, because it allows you to apply several very thin layers and it looks very natural. The egg is a bit difficult to clean (or I've just been using the wrong shampoo) so you probably need to replace it a lot if you use it on a daily basis.

This is what my face looks like when I apply foundation and concealer with the egg. Right is with and left is without using a flash.

I would recommend buying this egg if you want something to apply your concealer with, but I wouldn't recommend using it for foundation when you already have a good foundation brush. However, I do think the egg has several other purposes, you could even use it as a stress ball! ;)

Have a nice day ;)

A day at Europapark

While on vacation I went to this awesome themepark called "Europapark". I'd never heard of it before so I didn't really expect anything, but it was amazing! It's kind of like Disneyland, but without all the famous characters. In Europapark, you can visit several European countries and every country has it's own attractions. Everything looks great and you actually feel like you're in that country, which is a good thing of course. The only thing that I thought was a bit weird, was that they apparently think Dutch people are pirates :') I've had an incredible day there and I even went on a 73m high rollercoaster, which is pretty adventurous if you ask me. I took a few pictures so you could get an idea of what Europapark is and what you can do there ^.^

Have a nice day!

Summer Favourites: Coconut Body Scrub from The Body Shop

Summer trends come and go, but there's one summer trend that never changes: soft, shiny legs (unless some day hairy gorilla legs get super fashionable). And how do you get these silky smooth legs? Scrub! My skin is very dry and sensitive, so I had quite some trouble with getting them supersoft. One day, when my legs were full of razor bumps and red spots, I decided enough was enough and I was going to invest in a good body scrub. I wandered through The Body Shop, smelling all the amazing scents and looking at all the gorgeous scrubs, when I spotted this one. It's for normal to dry skin and it smells amazing. But does it scrub as good as it smells? Yes, it does. It makes my legs sooo soft and smooth and the skin on my legs looks so much better from how it did a few months ago. I've tried out some other scrubs from Sabon and other brands and they were okay, but this scrub is by far my favourite! 

I think this was my last Summer Favourites post this year, because I don't know what I should write about next and I think there have been enough Summer Favourites this year ^.^ If you're looking for a good scrub, I definitely recommend this one (unless you hate the smell of coconuts).

Have a nice day!

Summer Feelings

Yay! Summer! Most of us love the summer, and so do I. Right now I'm camping with my parents and my brother, and though I don't really like camping (5 minute showers, ants everywhere and a leaky tent) I'm having a good time. Yesterday, for example, we went shopping in a beautiful city called Freiburg. I took some pictures and I also want to show you some things I bought there! Enjoy!

First of all, there are some amazing buildings in Freiburg! There are lots of little towers and everything looks so different from the Netherlands. On the picture above, you see the church. Around the church are cute little shops and the whole thing together looks beautiful!

Another thing I love are the pastel coloured houses everywhere. Most of the shops in the Netherlands are grey and boring but this.. It's amazing! I want to live in a pastel coloured house now. There was also a man making giant soap bubbles, which made everything look even more awesome. You can see them on the picture if you look closely ^.^

There was a lot of wind, so my hair started acting crazy. I was also wearing a dress, so I had a couple of Marilyn Monroe incidents. Oh well, it was funny!

Aaaaand on to the shopping part! In Germany (and in France, if I'm correct) they have a store called Pimkie, and they sell lots of cute things there! I bought the floral pants/leggings on the picture above, and the sweater I'm wearing on the top picture. The pants were €19,99 and the sweater was €24,99. I also finally bought a flower crown thingy! I wanted one so bad but I couldn't find the right one because the flowers were too big, or it didn't feel comfortable, but now I finally found the perfect one! I'm wearing it on the top picture. I got it from H&M for €4,95.

And last but not least, this gorgeous Ciaté paint pot in Mojito 019! I was so happy when I found out they sell Ciaté in Germany! All the colours are so pretty I can barely handle it :3. I bought this one for €9,95 and I think I'll pick up another one before we go home ^.^

Today I just lay by the pool and did nothing but swim, eat, read and sunbathe :p. I guess this is my summer vacation so far, how's your summer? 

Have a nice day ;)

Introducing: The Cute Couple Challenge Contest!

Hi guys! This is the first challenge of The Cute Couple Challenge Contest: The Chubby Bunny Challenge! Let me introduce you to my friends, Daniël and Mireille. They came up with the idea of doing lots of challenges and posting them on Youtube. They don't have a Youtube channel, so we just post them on mine! For a few months, they've been acting like a really clingy couple, but the fun thing is, THEY'RE NOT A COUPLE. It's all just a joke, but sometimes it scares me a little (they once spent two hours picking out baby names, for example). But hey, it's extremely funny because they piss off everyone and make them think they're a couple. So that's where the name comes from. So far, we've already done 4 challenges, and this is the first one! Enjoy!

Mireille vs. Daniël

Have a nice day! :)

Oh, I completely forgot to mention that Mireille has her own blog as well and you should totally check it out!

Fimo Jewellery

About a year ago, I was searching for some fun diy's on Youtube with one of my best friends. Besides the usual diy stuff (galaxy shoes, studded collars and tie-dye) we found a ton of tutorials on how to make jewellery from polymer clay. It looked pretty easy and fun, so we went to the craft store and bought some polymer clay and varnish. We found out that it was, indeed, pretty easy to make amazing things from polymer clay. So here are a few pictures of the things we've made in the past year. Maybe it's a fun idea for summer?

If you're planning on doing this too, I'd recommend just searching Youtube for cute tutorials. Two amazing channels we often look at for tutorials are ToniEllison and PaperPastels. Also, I wouldn't buy too much polymer clay, beause, what if you don't like it? And you can also mix some colours to get the colour you want. 

Have a nice day! ;)

My Summer Bucketlist

Hi guys! Today I want to show you this years summer bucketlist. This is actually the first bucketlist I've ever made, and I was quite proud of the result. I don't want to waste this summer, so I've written down 20 things I HAVE to do before it's over. 

  1. Make a dreamcatcher, just because they're cute.
  2. Meet new people, because meeting new people is always fun.
  3. Get really tan, no explanation needed :p
  4. Play 'On My Own' on piano. It's my favourite song, so I should know how to play it.
  5. Do something I wouldn't normally do. Sometimes you need to get out of your comfort zone.
  6. Blog a lot.
  7. Make a collage door. I've already started doing this, but I want my door to be completely full.
  8. Dipdye my hair a crazy colour. Done!
  9. Upload a cover on Youtube. Done! It's on my Youtube channel, if you're curious ;)
  10. Overcome anxiety. The past half year has been full of anxiety and I'm fed up with it. I've gotten over it before (always in the summer vacation) so I hope that will happen this time, too.
  11. Get a hamster. I don't know where it's coming from, but I suddenly really want to buy a hamster. And call him Harry the Brave Hamster. Now I only need to convince my parents that I can actually take care of it too, considering I can't even take care of plants..
  12. Say "YES" to everything for a day. I think it would be funny.
  13. Read at least 5 different books. I always read a lot, but somehow I stopped doing that. So now I want to start reading again.
  14. Sew a dress. 
  15. Have a spa day with friends. Face masks, food and magazines. Sounds great!
  16. Reach 3000 pageviews. Yesterday I reached 2000 pageviews and I would be so happy if I could reach 3000 by the end of this summer!
  17. Have a food fight. 
  18. Start running. Being the lzay kind of person I am, I never exercise. But I should, to stay healthy. So that's why.
  19. Play messy Twister. Paint everywhere!
  20. Watch the sunset from a beautiful place, because that's a thing you just have to do when it's summer.
Thanks for reading! Do you have anything that you just HAVE to do this summer? Leave it in the comments!

Have a nice day ;)

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow

Hi guys! Today I want to share a beautiful product with you all! I know I'm a bit late with this product, but I wanted to show it anyways. I've seen lots of beautybloggers rave about it, but somehow, I was never convinced to buy it. I always thought I wasn't actually going to use it and it is a bit pricey after all. But I was wrong! I use this product all the time now, as an inner corner highlight, as a base under my eyeshadow or when I don't feel like putting a lot on my eyes.

I bought mine in 45 Infinite White, because I was looking for something that would make bright eyeshadows look even brighter. And this is perfect! I'm so glad that I finally bought it, because I can't imagine a life without it anymore.

The texture is amazing, the color is extremely pigmented, it stays put for a very long time (I wouldn't say 24 hours, but it still stays on for a long time without creasing) and you only need a little bit to cover your whole eyelid.

If you're looking for a beautiful inner corner highlight or a good base under bright shadows, this is the product for you! I'm definitely going to continue using it on an everyday basis. I hope this review was useful for you and I hope you enjoyed reading it!

Have a nice day! Bye ^.^ XX

"When will my life begin?"

Yesterday was one of those days where I was in a Disney kind of mood. Every once in a while, I have those moods where I'm obsessed with Disney music and this time, I was obsessing over the music of Disney's Tangled. I was actually just obsessing over Rapunzel. We are kind of similar, after all. We both have long golden tresses, green eyes and freckles and we're both wondering when our lives are finally going to begin. So, I decided to look up some Rapunzel makeup tutorials and I found a really good one, by Dope2111 . I really liked this look, so I wanted to share the results with you!

Just  like Rapunzel, I think "When will my life begin?" every single day. It's just, some people have really fun and exciting lives and I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. Every day is the same and nothing ever happens. I know that I'm the only one who can change that, but I just don't know how. Sure, I don't expect life to be full of adventures where you search for Holy Grails or whatever, but as a little kid, I did think life as a 15-year-old would be a bit more exciting. Hopefully this blog will bring some excitement into my life and give me a less boring existence :').

And last but not least, the "I'm-dramatically-staring-out-the-window-while-wondering-when-my-life-will-finally-begin-pose". ;)

I really enjoy doing these posts, so let me know if you want to see another Disney princess or a different look! If we had Halloween in Holland, I'd definitely go as Rapunzel (I do need to grow out my hair just a little bit for that to happen, though). I think she's my favourite Disney princess at the moment, who's yours? Leave your answer in the comments below ^.^

Have a nice day! ;)
