Yesterday's OOTD + FOTD!


Anyone who knows me, knows i'm a night person. I love to live in the night and i don't really care about sleeping late in the night, but lately it has been a problem. The past few weeks i've been living like a vampire haha, my sleep rhythm was awful! It was getting worser and worser, and with worse i mean: sleeping at 10 am in the morning lol. First it wasn't that bad, but it was getting worser so eventually i slept that late because i wasn't really tired. It wasn't that bad the whole time, only the last week it was this bad. So i've decided to change my sleep rhytm, and here i am all woke up on 10:30 am (i woke up on 6 am). I don't really know how i did it, but a few days ago i skipped a night of sleeping without even really noticing. So i was very tired when it was 10 pm & *tadaaa* i went to bed and fell asleep. Some of you may think i'm crazy, but i've had this problem before (living like a vampire) and i always had to skip a night of sleeping to change my sleep rhythm. That was always a freaking nightmare, because it really sucks to stay up & trying to keep your eyes open when you really want to sleep. My boyfriend is also a night person (not that bad as me), so that's not helping either haha. So finally my sleep rhythm is normal again, i don't know how long it will stay this way but we'll see lol.
So here's yesterday's outfit of the day + face of the day, hope you guys like it.

FOTD, glamour check.

It's been a very long time since i've posted a FOTD, but finally here's another face of the day.
It's not anything spectaculair or something, but i really like neutral colours. I think that looks the best on me, bright colours don't really look good on me i guess. But soon i'm going to try it anyway, because i love to play with different colours to see how it looks on me. Also my hair sucks, i think it's super boring! I like my hair this long, but it doesn't have any style so it's just way too boring. Do you have any recommendations for a hairstyle? I was thinking about giving my hair a very safe haircut: just some layers and a bit shorter. Or do you have any idea what will look good on me?
Now let me show you my FOTD.



Lol, i hated my nose on this pic (you could look right in it, so i covered it haha)

Dogeared necklaces


Ever since i saw some of the jewelry by the brand Dogeared, i always wanted to have at least 1 piece of their collection. I really adore all of the necklaces they sell, they're so pretty & very cute! So i've finally bought a necklace on ebay. At first i didn't really knew which one i had to get, because they were all so cute. I really like small subtle necklaces, and most of the dogeared necklaces are so it was very hard to choose. I think i'll even buy one more next month, don't know which one yet but i'll figure it out haha. The one i got is a very cute small gold dipped key necklace, it's perfect for everyday wear (really wanted to have a small gold coloured necklace for everyday wear). This necklace is 16" long, so you can pair it even with a longer necklace. I think i'm going to buy another necklace from dogeared to pair it with this necklace, lol i don't know yet but i think it will look cute.
Now let me show you the necklace i got:


Here's the necklace on the card (i think it's very nice to buy this as a gift for someone)




The necklace on my neck, really subtle cute necklace.



Do you have any dogeared items? Please let me know what you think of it!

Rimmel lycra pro nail polish review + swatches

And again another review, this time about the rimmel lycra pro nail polish. I already have some rimmel nail polish & i think they're very good. Rimmel nail polishes never dissapointed me, they have some very pretty colours & i like the formula.


What they claim:
Professional finish effortlessly! New Maxi Brush for a mistake-free application. Up to 10 days colour.


The nail polishes i got: nr. 316 Flirty coral & nr. 402 Urban purple


So let me tell you what i think about the lycra pro nail polish + the colours.
First of all the package looks ok, but that doesn't really matter because it's just nail polish. This nail polish has 10 ml. in it, compared to the opi it isn't that much. But i don't care at all, because i never really consumed a whole bottle of opi nail polish (since i have more than 100 nail polishes it's almost impossible lol.) The brush of this nail polish is thick compared to normal nail polish brushes, you can compare it to the brush from the opi polishes. I actually like this one better, it's very easy to apply. Because it's such a thick brush, it's much quicker to apply your nail polish. Rimmel claims that this nail polish will stay on up to 10 days, well i don't think any nail polish could ever do that? I mean, i never had a nail polish that stayed on for 10 days (even if i wanted to) and also i've never heard of a nail polish that actually stays on that long? So that doesn't matter, but it does stay on for a long time. On me it will last 3 days without chipping, i think that's very good! Another good thing about these nail polishes is the price, it's not expensive they cost around 7 euro in the store. Now let me show you the swatches:



Here you can see the thick brush!



Urban purple: in real life the colour is a bit darker & it kinda looks like opi - miami beet


Flirty coral: pink coral colour, really pretty especially in the summer!



Pros:
- Very easy to apply
- Last on for a long time
- Pretty colours
- Very affordable
- Available in drugstores


Cons:
- Not much colour choice compared to opi/china glaze.



Do you have any rimmel nail polishes, and what do you think of them? Please let me know!

Review: Maybelline the collosal mascara

Today another review, this time about the collosal mascara from maybelline.


I've been wanting to try this mascara for the longest time, but i never bought it because i already had too many mascara's. So when i saw it on ebay for cheap (compared to the price here in the drugstore), i finally decided to buy it. I was really excited to try it out, because i saw some pretty good reviews on several blogs. And i really wanted to know if this could be my new holy grail mascara, but unfortunately it's not at all. This mascara didn't do anything good for my lashes, ok they made my lashes longer but my lashes look terrible when i put this on. I don't know if it's because i got the waterproof version, but i hate this mascara. When i first put it on i asked my boyfriend what he thinks about it, he thought it looked ugly (so that says a lot, because he doesn't know anything about make-up :-p lol), he said they looked a little sticky & like spider-legs. And that's excactly what i thought too, i had to put several coats to make my lashes more black. I don't know if that's the problem, but i don't have that problem with other mascara's i love so no i don't think so. Enough talking.. let me show you what i mean:


Normal lashes (uncurled etc.)


Curled lashes (with shu uemura eyelash curler.)

Curled lashes with the collosal mascara
On the photo it doesn't look that bad at all, but that was after i combed them trough with my lash comb. And in real life it looked way more worse (believe me), also my lashes felt really sticky and i wanted to take it off immediately. Of course mascara's are personal & this might be a holy grail mascara for some people. But for me no, i hated it! So if you want to try it, buy it on ebay it's a lot cheaper!

Pro's:
- packaging is kinda cute
- the brush is big


Cons:
- clumps like crazy aka spider-lashes
- feels horrible on your lashes
- too expensive for the quality (especially in the netherlands)
- Not that black, need to put more layers to show up.
- Stinks (but mascara's always do)


Have you tried this mascara yet? And what did you think of it? Please let me know!

Avon glazewear lipgloss swatches

A few weeks ago i did a review on the avon glazewear lipglosses & i thought it would be fun to show you the swatches on my mouth too. Also my sister asked for it, so here are the swatches on my mouth.

Darling pink, lovely pink colour with gold shimmer.


Real red, just like the name of the lipgloss is saying: real red. Just a nice red colour, i prefer lipsticks more for red lips but i think this lipgloss is very pigmented so you can definitely wear it instead of a red lipstick.

Please let me know what you think of it!
