In preparation for NYE

The big search for my new year's eve dress mostly starts around mid october. I am then still fully convinced I'll find the dress month's before NYE. But the reality is quite different. Every year I find myself 2 days before NYE waiting for the postman to arrive and release me from the stress of my dress arriving on time. 
Last year it went wrong and my dress arrived around the 6th of January. My shoes, belt and jewelry all arrived on December 31. So you can imagine I had to improvise really good last minute.
But I have to admit to myself I did pretty good this year. My dress arrived yesterday, although that was the last opportunity since I am leaving for a short new year's holiday in Belgium today. But, no worries, I've got everything covered and when you do everything at the last minute, you really become quite good at it.

ps; the dress I got is one of the pretty dresses above, can you guess which one?

Zara (€29,95) Mikael Aghal (€219) Tibi (€231)


Merry Christmas!

Last year's Christmas

I cannot believe tonight is Christmas eve. I still feel like it's October and winter is about to start. I think it's because of the weather, last year it was freezing cold and snowing like crazy and today it's 10 degrees and the sun in shining. 
But fact is, tomorrow I'll be unpacking and giving presents, cooking and eating /a lot\ with family and friends. Just the way I like my christmas days to be. 
Now I'm off for some last minute present shopping, Merry Christmas!

For those who didn't win; I'm sorry but there will be a new Give Away soon!


Beautiful bookstore // Mendo

Last saturday I spent the day shopping with my mom and little brother and we came across this amazing bookstore I just had to share. Luckily I brought my camera and was allowed to take some pictures. 
Mendo is quite a paradise where you can spend hours going trough the most amazing books. From fashion to royalty, they have it all. 

If you're ever in Amsterdam, this really is a must-visit!

Mendo (their website is worth a visit as well!)

GIVE AWAY // Kevin Murphy Color.Bug

Remember the picture I posted a week ago with the tips of my hair pink? Of course I didn't really dye the tips, I did it with the Color Bugs of Kevin Murphy.
It's sort of an eyeshadow (but hair shadow I guess lol) for your hair! It's so cool, you can color the tips of your hair for one day, one evening, whatever you want!
I'm not just telling you about this cool Bug, I'm giving away a complete Color Bug set with purple, pink and orange!
To see how it works; Girlscene put together a short clip to show you exactly how.

What do you need to do to enter this give away?

That's it!
The winner will be announced on December 20th :)

Hot spot // oBooi! lingerie store

"Two men start a lingerie store"with two naked men behind a cardboard, who says no to that?? When I was invited to visit the oBooi! store, I definitely didn't say no.
When you enter the store your attention doesn't go to the two naked men in the back, but to the pretty lingerie that's hanging everywhere in the store. It's displayed like candy with mannequins hanging from the ceiling and colorful panties from Cosabella rolled up together in a bowl, like actual candy.
It's Cosabella that draws my attention every time I visit the store, it's a fun collection with pretty colors and cute bandeau's, which I showed you already here.
If you don't live nearby Eindhoven, don't worry; they also have a Shop Online.

Of course I didn't go home empty handed, that is in fact impossible when you enter this store. But some things are better kept for myself :).
