OUTFIT: The final countdown




NL:  Morgenavond is het zo ver en vertrek ik op vakantie. Negen daagjes lang ga ik genieten van het mooie weer, lekker eten en ontspanging aan de Franse Riviera. We verblijven in twee hotels: eentje in Frankrijk en eentje in Italië, maar daar vertel ik jullie later nog meer over. Op mijn wishlist staat: Nice, Cannes, Saint-Tropez en Monaco bezoeken. Hebben jullie tips voor mij?

In deze chique badsteden geldt natuurlijk: zien en gezien worden. Mijn lievelingstas van Chanel, die je in deze shoot ook ziet, kan dus niet in mijn koffer ontbreken. Wat vinden jullie van deze outfit?

ENG: Tomorrow night I'm finally starting my holiday. Nine days long I will be enjoying gorgeous weather, great food and some relaxation at the French Riviera. We will be staying in two hotels, one in France and one in Italy, but I will tell you about both later. On my wishlist: visiting Nice, Cannes, Saint-Tropez and Monaco. Do you have any tips for me?

In these fancy sea towns the rule "more is more" of course counts. My favourite Chanel bag, which you can spot in the pictures below, will also go with me to France of course. Do you like this outfit?

BEAUTY: H&M Sea Mist salt water spray


Description

Een beachspray die meer volume en textuur creëert voor een natuurlijke, matte beachlook. 150 ml. Hoe te gebruiken: breng aan op droog of vochtig haar en laat natuurlijk drogen of blaas het haar droog. Draai je lokken om je vingers voor een warrig effect.

A salt water spray that adds body and texture for a natural, matte beach look. 150 ml. How to use: Spray onto dry or damp hair and blow dry or leave to air-dry. Twist with your fingers for a tousled effect.


Packaging

De verpakkingen van de beauty lijn van H&M zijn simpel maar mooi. Dat geldt ook voor deze spray. De vloeistof zit in een wit busje met daarop een sprayknop. Het etiket is zee blauw, een mooie referentie naar wat je van dit product kunt verwachten. Er staat ook duidelijk de productomschrijving in.

The packaging of the beauty line of H&M is simple yet beautiful. This also applies to this spray. The fluid is inside a white bottle with a spray button. The label is sea blue, which is a pretty reference to what you can expect from this product. The product description is clearly mentioned on it as well. 


My experience

Als ik mijn haar zo laat drogen, heb ik een lichte krul. Graag wou ik dit effect natuurlijk wat extra in de verf zetten en wie houdt nu niet van beach hair in de zomer. Eerste waste ik mijn haar en vervolgens sproeide ik het product op mijn nat haar. Daarna draaide ik gedurende een uur mijn haar in twee knotjes en tadaa... daar was het beach hair effect.

De H&M sea mist spray doet zijn naam alle eer aan en heeft ook daadwerkelijk een zeegeur. Het product brengt je dus een beetje in een vakantiesfeer, wat altijd een mooi pluspunt is. De krullen gecreëerd door de spray, hielden een volledige dag. Ik heb al slechtere producten geprobeerd!

De H&M Sea Mist Salt water spray kost € 7,99/flesje en is verkrijgbaar in geselecteerde winkels of online.

If I let my hair dry, I have a natural curl in it. I wanted to enhance this effect because I love beach hair during the summer. I started by washing my hair and thereafter I sprayed some fluid on my wet hair. Afterwards I tied my hair in two knots during one hour et voila... my beach hair was ready.

The H&M sea mist spray did what it promised to do and really has a sea smell. While using this product, I felt like being on a holiday, which is a big bonus point. The curls created by the spray, lasted a whole day. One of the best products I tried so far!

The H&M Sea Mist Salt water spray comes at €7,99/bottle and is available in selected stores or online

OUTFIT: Beach hair, don 't care




NL: Een tijdje geleden was ik uitgenodigd op de opening van de nieuwe H&M winkel op de Meir. Daar scoorde ik dit jurkje voor een zacht prijsje. Mooi hoeft niet altijd duur te betekenen want ik heb al super veel complimenten gekregen over deze outfit. Waar ik nog heel blij mee ben, zijn mijn laced-up heels. Zoals jullie misschien wel weten, heb ik behoorlijk moeite om schoenen in mijn maat te vinden. Gelukkig heeft Zalando een ruime keuze in alle maten en kleuren. Wat vinden jullie van deze outfit? 

ENG: A while ago I was invited to the opening of the new H&M store on the Meir. During this event I scored this dress which was very cheap. Pretty things don't necessarily need to be expensive because I got already so many compliments on this outfit. Another thing which makes me very happy, are my laced-up heels. As you probably already know, I have quite some trouble finding shoes in my size. Luckily Zalando has plenty of choice in different sizes and colours. Do you like my outfit?

BEAUTY: Wigs by Wigsbuy

Wigsbuy Hair Extensions & Popular Medium Hairstyle Wigs for Sale

Years ago I dyed my hair platina blond and I really loved this hairstyle. Unfortunately my hair quickly started to suffer from all this dying and I had to go back to a darker hair colour. That's the first time when using a wig crossed my mind. How fun would it be to change hair styles and/or colours in a few minutes!?

I put the idea aside again until I recently tried some extensions and fell in love with my voluminous hair. That's when I started surfing the net for some qualitative extensions and wigs and this is how I discovered the webshop Wigsbuy

The first thing I checked were the Wigsbuy Hair Extensions, which you can see here: http://shop.wigsbuy.com/Custom-Hair-Extensions-7180/. Wigsbuy offers a lot of Cheap Hair Extensions which is a plus point in comparison to the hair extensions at a hair dresser. My favourite look is the one below:


How cute are these wavy clip-in extensions? Wigsbuy is definitely known for their Quality Hair Extensions. Real human hair is used which can easily by straightened, curled or cut. I feel like that's super important because you might want to use the extensions on different occasions.

For my wig I would opt for a Medium Length Hairstyle. I'd love to cut my hair some shorter but I'm afraid I will get bored with the short hair quite soon so a wig would be the perfect solution. You can check all the medium length wigs here: http://shop.wigsbuy.com/Custom-Medium-Hairstyles-106776/.

In this section I especially like the Wavy Medium Hairstyles. Below you can see some of my favourites.





Q: How do you feel about wearing wigs? Will you ever buy something at Wigsbuy?

OUTFIT: Scapa flats




NL: Het zware leven van een blogger... shooten in de wind! Afgelopen week ontving ik mijn nieuwe Scapa ballerina's van Zalando en natuurlijk wou ik deze meteen shooten. Vorig jaar ging ik voor gouden schoentjes en dit jaar koos ik voor het oud roze. Wat vinden jullie er van?

Als ik één ding haat tijdens het shooten, is het wel wind. Ik denk dat je dit ook aan mijn gezicht ziet ;-) Ik heb graag dat mijn haar goed zit... achja, volgende keer beter zeker! 

ENG: The though life of a blogger... shooting in the wind! Last week I received my new Scapa flats from Zalando and of course I wanted to shoot them immediately. Last year I opted for the golden pair and this year I chose old rosé. Do you like them?

If there's one thing I hate during shooting, it's this crazy wind. I think you can see this by the look on my face ;-) I like my hair to stay put ... well, better luck next time I guess!

BEAUTY: Irresistible Me hair extensions


My hair is holy to me. I go to the hair dresser every week because I just want it to be perfect. I've had different lengthts and colours over the years but one thing I never dared to take on were extensions. Too often I've seen people with ugly and very visible extensions and I just don't want that for me. So when Irresistible Me offered me to try their Silky Touch Clip-in extensions I couldn't wait to receive them.



The delivery from New York to Belgium only took one week after which I could get started. The extensions arrived in a little box, packaged in a see-through plastic pouch, making it easy to colour test them against my hair. If you’re not happy with the colour match you’ve chosen, you can easily exchange them.  In the box I received from Irresistible Me were multiple clip-in extensions from different width. I used the widest one in the nape of my neck and built it up layer by layer. So in between each layer of your own hair, you have to put a clip-in extension. 


The first thing I noticed was that the hair from the extensions is super soft. They were easily styled as well. I was scared I wouldn't be able to clip-in the extensions but it was so easy. After 10 minutes I was already done putting them all in. For the first time in my life I have big and voluminous hair, the feeling is just awesome. As you can see the extensions were a bit too long so my mum cut them for me.


I opted for the silky touch clip-in extensions 14 inch and 140 gram in medium brown. These come at $89 and can be ordered here. Of course there are an endless number of other options for each hair type and colour. Irresistible me doesn't only offer the best hair extensions but also amazing hair tools and care. The extensions are made of 100% human Remy hair, which is the highest grade of real, human hair.  If you order now, you'll get 20% off with the promo code GET20OFF.
