Friday's Fancies: Black + White

Hi ladies,
this weeks Friday's Fancies is all about the colours black and white. Although many say that black and white aren't colours, I think that black and white are the most versatile and classic colours off all! This inspired me to do this timeless and simple look. Hope you enjoy!

Black White

Don't forget to check out the other Friday's Fancies looks, they are all a great inspiration
Have a nice weekend!

Favourite perfumes: my top 5

Hi ladies,
Coco Chanel once said: "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." Although I don't believe that's true, I do love to wear perfume. And that's why I wear perfume everyday. Therefore I would like to share my favourite perfumes with you!  
Brit Woman by Burberry
My father had bought this perfume for me six years ago and I have been wearing it ever since. I love wearing it and I always get a lot of compliments when I wear this scent.

Miyabi Woman by Annayake
If you like Burberry Brit, you will love this scent! Miyabi Woman has a very similar scent to the Burberry Brit. And I have to say that I'm starting to love this scent more.

Amor Amor by Cacharel
This was another gift from my father about 10 years ago and it has been in my collection ever since. I've repurchased the big bottle about 7 times! I love wearing this at night or during the colder months, because it is a heavier and spicy/oriental scent.

J'adore by Dior

I discovered this lovely scent last year and I've already repurchased it 2 times. I love that this scent is floral, but sophisticated at the same time.

The beat by Burberry
I used to wear Burberry Brit everyday and switched it up with Burberry The Beat.

I love all of these perfumes, because I think they are sophisticated and appropriate for any occasion. Furthermore they are not too heavy or too light (except the Amor Amor by Cacharel perfume). I usually don't have too many perfumes at the same time, therefore I want perfumes that I can wear day and night.

I'm actually looking for more fresh and floral/fruity scents for this spring and summer. I would love to know what your suggestions are! Also I would love for you to share your favourite perfumes!

Hope you had a lovely weekend :)

Friday's Fancies: Outfit Crush

Hi ladies,
Happy Friday!

I love Kate Middleton's outfit. She always looks amazing, but this is my favourite look so far. Especially because she paired these coloured pants so nicely. I love the preppy, yet fun look she has put together!

Weekly make-up basket: 16 jan

Hi ladies!
After finishing my project pan, I decided to do weekly make-up baskets. This idea was inspired by Shades of Kassie on Youtube.

For this week I chose some products I would really like to finish. So these products might show up again in other make-up baskets.

❤ Lipgloss: I received this lipgloss in a goodiebag. I never really used it, so this is the perfect opportunity!

❤ Nail polish: I have far to many red nail polishes. Therefore I decided to try and focus on some of these red nail polishes and finish them. However I have never actually finished a nail polish, have you?

❤ Blush: This blush is so old, I can't read the brand on the product nor can I remember it. It's really time for me to use it some more and finish it!

❤ Primer: Although I think I only need one primer, I actually have more than one primer. Hopefully I will finish some of my primers during Make Out 2013.

❤ Eyeliner: This navy blue eyeliner is almost finished. I can't even read the brand, because it is so tiny!

Lipliner: I love the lipliners from essence. However I don't like this colour on me, which is Satin Mauve. This lipliner will be used in combination with the dark red lipstick in my make-up basket.

F88 palette: I love this palette and I have been using it a lot for the past month. However I prefer working with smaller palettes, especially because I travel a lot. 

❤ Cream eyeshadows: These three cream eyeshadows are from elf and I really enjoy using them. The colours that I have are candle light, dawn and natural glow. I haven't used them in a long time and I want to use them up before they dry out.

Powder highlighter: I love wearing highlighter, especially cream highlighter. So I haven't used this highlighter in a while.

Perfume: I own a lot of perfume, because I wear it everyday.This week I will be wearing "Texures" from Zara. This is a very sweet and powdery scent.

Concealer: This Vichy concealer is really nice. I sometimes use this concealer without foundation, because the coverage is great.

Lipstick: I added two lipsticks to this weeks make-up basket. One natural colour and one bold colour. 

Let me know if you like these weekly make-up baskets! 
Also, if you would like me to change anything or have any tips for me, I would love to hear them!

Project 10 pan: finished!

Hi ladies!
I finally finished my first project pan. Since my last update I finished my Gosh primer, my The Body Shop lipstick and my Catrice gel eyeliner dried out. 
Click here if you would like to see the beginning of this project pan, my first update, my second update or third update!

At first, I wanted to do another Project 10 Pan and continue doing Project Pans throughout 2013. However I think I'm going to do weekly or monthly make-up baskets! Shades of Kassie does these all the time and they are a lot of fun. 

A weekly make-up basket means that I will make a basket filled with make-up that I'm going to use that week. Every week I will have to change out the products. So I will have a new make-up basket every week! 

I'm not sure whether I will do these weekly, every other week  or monthly. What do you ladies think I should do?

All I need now is a cute basket :)

Favourite products of 2012

Hi ladies,
today I wanted to share some of my favourite products of 2012. I already posted my drugstore favourites. These products are also my favourites of 2012, but I wanted to share other products!

My favourite foundation is the colour supplement from Lush. I can wear this foundation on its own and built it up to a full coverage foundation. However I can also mix it with my moisturiser and use it as a tinted moisturiser.

I love the highlighter of The Body Shop. It is such a multi purpose product! Obviously, it can be used as a highlighter, but I also use it as a cream eye shadow and sometimes I even dab a little of this on my lips for a beautiful sheen.

This is a fantastic concealer! It is really nice and creamy and it has great coverage. I got it, because Jayme (from Jayme & Mendi @ Her Late Night Cravings) recommended it!

This elf bronzer is great for travelling. I used it during my holiday as a bronzer, but also as an eye shadow. I used the individual colours for all kinds of different neutral looks. 

I won this lovely Buxom lipgloss in 2012 and I love it so much! I love the texture and the colour.

What are your favourite beauty products of 2012?

    I'm addicted to anything beauty related! That's way I'm doing Make Out 2013 and project pan!
  9. Do you keep your nails long or short?
    I like my nails to be short, because I have to write on a blackboard with chalk.
  10. If you could look like any female celebrity, who would it be? Jennifer Aniston or Reese Witherspoon. They are such natural beauties!
  11. What languages can you speak?
    Dutch, my first language.

Friday's Fancies: New Year, New you

Hi ladies,
this weeks theme of Friday's Fancies is about the new year! Through the outfit I (and the rest of the Friday's Fancies family) show what I hope 2013 will hold for me. First, I thought of a sparkly outfit, because I have so many great plans. But then I realised that I really want a more balanced and simple 2013. 
As some of you know, I started Make Out 2013 and I believe that this "project" is the first step in the right direction!

New Year's Resolutions

What are your hopes and dreams for 2013?

Make Out 2013

Hi ladies,
I just signed my contract for Make Out 2013! This means that I will be shopping my stash and try to finish some products in 2013.

I got this idea from pinksofoxy. She was inspired by Gloss Out 2010, which was a "movement" that decided to no longer buy lipgloss for a year. However, Make Out 2013 refers to all make up and beauty products. 
So today I officially signed the contact! (contract below) I copied this contract from pinksofoxy and adapted it to my needs, because everybody can make their own rules!

I will continue to do Project Pan and Monthly Empties. Also I will show you what my thoughtful 10 make up purchases are. So I will definitely keep you all updated!

Let me know if you will join me. I could use the support :)


Make Out 2013

I will allow myself 10 makeup purchases for the year 2013. This includes: all color cosmetics, eyeshadow, blush, bronzer, highlighters, lipstick, lip liner, eyeliner, eye primers, foundation, powder, mascara, color nail polish, perfume, and repurchases of any items I finish.


*Excluding: basic hair care, basic body care and basic skincare.
