I Heart Makeup Chocolate and Peaches

One does not simply own too many eyeshadow palettes, so when I found out that I Heart Makeup developed a dupe for the Sweet Peach palette by Too Faced, I simply had to have it.

Catching Up

The past few weeks have literally flown by and I am currently sitting in my room wondering where the time has gone. I am not even going to write that the past few weeks have been hectic because at this point it feels like my standard excuse. Instead I would like to recap the past weeks for you. Starting off with an accomplishment of mine that I am pretty proud of.

I Did a Thing

Where’s she been? And who am I? That’s a secret I’ll never tell. You know you love me! XOXO Gossip Girl

I know I have been m.i.a. the past few weeks and I think that I have pretty good reason. Ever since classes began, and my board year as well, I have been struggling with the flu. I have had a cold now for over four weeks  and basically I have not had any rest in the past few weeks which has resulted in me not fully recovering. Every spare minute I have had I have either spend a sleep or doing my coursework so I am so sorry for not being able to post anything till today.

Room for Thought: Are We Trying Too Hard?

Summer is slowly coming to an end (although it could be argued that it never really started in the Netherlands) and our bottles of sunblock are being swapped for course syllabi. For me this means that the start of my Board year is approaching which is paired with the increased amount of plans in my schedules. Moreover, this year I will be receiving my B.A. Diploma for my Bachelor in the Arts, write my thesis for my other B.A., working at my job, joining the Education Committee, taking two courses each block (or try to do so at least), work on my blog and still function as a Etos Social Ambassador. The reason why I mention all of these things is not because I want to brag but because last week the Volkskrant posted an article about the increased pressure on students to manage many different commitments at the same time. Are we trying too hard?

Diana Leeflang Stationary Line

As some of you may know I am not that good with following other Bloggers/Vloggers. I have a few blogs which I do read repeatedly but most times I totally forget. One vlogger that I do follow is the Dutch Diana Leeflang, also known as DisforDazzle. I love watching her vlogs and I think her and Alex just make the cutest couple ever. A while back she announced that she was launching a Stationary Line at the Dutch Kruidvat stores and as soon as I heard the news I knew I just had to check the items out.

Wednesday Reviews: Bioré Pore strips

I have to say that I have been blessed with clear skin. Every now and then I find a lost pimple on my face but other than that my skin is soft and problem free… well mostly. The one problem that I do have are those pesky blackheads on my nose. For years I used Nivea Porestrips but a while back Dutch stores started to carry these Bioré ones and after reading a few promising reviews I had to try them for myself.
