Friday's Fancies: Dress yourself

Hi ladies :)
This weeks Friday's Fancies is all about your personal style. 
Check out what I wear day to day!

Friday's Fancies: Dress yourself
I love wearing simple and classic, yet interesting outfits.
I usually make an outfit interesting by wearing a nice scarf or necklace. 
I wear classic items like this LV bag, but I love pairing this with nice basics like a simple long sleeve shirt in basic colours.
 What do you wear day to day?

Parisian Fashion

Hi ladies,
this past weekend I went to Paris and I had a great time :)
I wanted to share some of the fashion I saw while I was in Paris, because I always like to know what different women wear in different cities. This always inspires me.
Almost every woman had a Longchamp in Le Pliage. Populair colors: brown, olive green, black, dark red and emerald green.

A lot of women wore hats. I saw several women wear an akubra hat (above), but there were many other hats. E.g. the top hat and the fedora hat.

Even though it wasn't that cold, everybody was wearing beautiful thick scarves.

Studded boots were sold everywhere and a lot of women and girls were wearing them.

I always thought that Ladurée was something that only tourists would buy. However, in Paris I saw a lot of Ladurée bags being carried by French women.

Many French women wear (faux) fur coats or (faux) fur long gilets. 

I hope this inspires you as much as it has inspired me!

Photo diary: week 47

Hi ladies!
Today I thought I'd post a photo recap of what I've been up to the past week. 
I've been re-organizing and cleaning out my closet last week. These bags are full of neglected items. It really made me realize how much I already have! So, I decided I'm not going to buy too much in Paris.
 This lovely card I got from J. :)

I got this delicious chocolate bar from Tony's. I love that this brands fights for human rights!

I can't wait to go to Paris :) The Eiffel Tower looks so pretty.

Hope you've had a lovely weekend!

To do in Paris!

Hi ladies,
I wanted to share with you what we're going to do in Paris.

Galaries Lafayette
This is a French department store. I chose a picture form the internet with christmas decorations, because I think everything will be decorated when we go. 

City Pharma
This Pharmacy was recommended by Lisa Eldridge, because they have dicounted prices and special offers. 

When you go to Paris, you must buy some macarons! 

This is another department store in Paris. Hopefully this will be decorated as well :)

Avenue des Champs-Élysées
This is THE shopping street of Paris. There are all kinds of shops here, from high street to high end.

La Tour Eiffel
And of course we are also going to the Eiffel tower! 

What would you do if you were going to Paris for a day?

Hi ladies,

France is known for their fantastic skincare, especially the french pharmacy skincare products. 
These brands are specially chosen to be sold in a pharmacy. So, these brands are really good ones for a great price. Obviously, Mariska and I really want go to a French pharmacy while we are in Paris!

I started researching (check out the links below) about the different brands and their products. The following products are definitely on my wish list!

Nuxe huile prodigieuse
This is an oil that you can use on your skin or in your hair. It's one of Nuxe's best sellers. There's also one with gold glitter!

Nuxe baume levres
This is a matte lip balm and was recommended on many websites. Its also one of their bestsellers.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
This creme can be used for many purposes, e.g. repair mask, baby lotion, after shave, to remove make-up,... 
It was recommended on many websites as well.

What would you get if you were going to a French pharmacy?

What's in my shower : Fall/winter

Hi Ladies,

I wanted to share what is in my shower!

As you can see on this picture, I keep all of my shower products in this cute basket.

I have this delicious shower gel from The Body Shop. It is from their fall/winter line and it is called Spiced Vanilla. I love the scent!

This scrub is from the brand Pure Coconut Oil. I really like it, because I love coconut and the scrub it not too drying.

I love the products from Lush! Especially this Daddy-O shampoo. It cleans my hair really well and keeps my blonde hair shiny.

I bought this Snow Fairy shower gel from Lush last year. It smells super sweet. Snow Fairy is from their fall/winter collection and is now available.

This last soap is also from Lush and it's called Angels Delight. It is also in their fall/winter collection. I adore this scent, it is really suitable for this time of year.

I love changing things up with the season! Don't you?
What's in your shower?
