PERSONAL | BLOGGER BREAK

Hi there lovely faces! As you might have noticed, it’s extremely quiet on my blog… I am still alive. However, my internship just started and I’m suuuper busy. This internship is very important to me, so I just need to focus on that first. It’ll only take 9 weeks and then I’ll hopefully be back completely.

WE DON'T HEART IT

Hi there lovely faces!

A few days ago, I read something on another blog – I was trying to find it again, but sadly, I can’t find it anywhere – and she told that using pictures on blogs is really tricky.

Using someone else’s pictures is very tricky, because you have to have permission to post it on your blog. I always thought that if you’d put the URL link to that picture in the post itself, you’d be fine. I always did this so I thought I wouldn’t get in trouble.

MONDAY'S THOUGHTS #16

001. Exam Stress. Do I need to say more? I have only one test in two weeks, so you’d think that would be plenty enough time to study for it. Well yes, it was plenty enough time if I did study, but no. I am one of the biggest procrastinators EVER. It’s a phonetics test. I just do not get it in my head, get de-motivated, and cannot get myself to get back to studying.

LONG NIGHTS AND WARM DUVETS

It’s getting colder, nights are getting longer and longer and it’s getting so hard to get out of bed. I’d rather cuddle up underneath two duvets and never get out of my little nest. I’m not really a morning person anyway, but I find myself getting out of bed as late as I possibly can. One morning I had only 20 minutes to get up, dress, do my hair, eat, get my stuff and books, and make it to the bus stop on time. It is possible yet not desirable.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN | DAY 31

Happy Halloween everyone! Today is the last day of my October Birthday Month series, sob sob. I hope you enjoyed it and fingers crossed I’ll keep up all the work and be able to post more things in one week! For now: enjoy your Halloween!

I’m hoping to post a Halloween look tonight, keep your eyeballs peeled for that!

Lots of love,

Laurie

REVIEW | P2 LIQUID SAND | DAY 29

Hi there lovely faces!
As you could see in my last My Week in Pictures post, I got a nail varnish as a present from a friend. It’s P2’s Liquid Sand nail varnish in 070 Pretty. I believe P2 is a German brand, I don’t exactly know if you can get it outside of Germany; let me know in the comments below if you can!

001. You know when you’re looking forward to something very much; it’ll be over in just a few seconds. I was looking forward to last week so much and it literally flew by! John Mayer’s Concert and celebrating my birthday seems surreal and I wish I could press rewind and re-live all of it again.

WEEK IN PICTURES #3 | DAY 27

Hi there lovely faces! As promised, another My Week in Pictures post! Tell me if you like these posts, I might do them more often in the future!

Finished reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children on Sunday, such a good book! I have to read this for my Junior Literature course.
It’s kind of a freaky book but once you get into it, it’s actually very interesting and amusing.

FOREO LUNA MINI | DAY 25

Hi there lovely faces!


I finally saved up enough money to buy the Foreo Luna Mini! I’m so excited, I just HAD to share it with you guys! It will take a few days to arrive, but I can’t wait to finally try it out. Keep an eye out for a full review which I will write later on my blog!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY | DAY 24

Hi there lovely faces!

Nineteen years ago, half an hour past midnight, my little face said hi to the world for the first time. It’s a scary big world and yet I survived and will hopefully continue my adventure for a while. I’m blessed to have lovely friends and caring family to celebrate it with. However, as I’m still a normal human being, I have to go to school today (mehh!), and I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to actually be able to celebrate it.

Hi there lovely faces! I am a big lover of watching YouTube videos and as I love creating fake wounds and gory stuff, I find Halloween Tutorials very interesting. This is part 2 of my favourite YouTube Halloween tutorials!

001.  BIRTHDAY COUNTDOWN! My birthday is this week and I’m quite excited to say the least. Turning 19 isn’t that special, but I have lots of fun things going on this week and I can’t wait to celebrate it with my friends and family!

PERSONAL | FEELING BETTER | DAY 20

Hi there lovely faces!

So normally there would be a My Week in Pictures post on Sunday. However, as you might know, I was ill most of the week so I didn’t do anything really..


The only day I did something kind of interesting (not really) was on Wednesday. It was one of my best friend’s birthday on Sunday and we had a lovely sleepover on WednesdayAll ! This was my LOTD. Natural makeup and some curls!

We made and ate cupcakes, did the Chubby Bunny Challenge (my idea, seriously, if you are having a sleepover with a couple of people, you just NEED to do this), applied face masks and watched the Little Mermaid and Tangled.

I feel blessed to have such amazing friends that make me happy every single day! <3

I'm finally feeling better and I have  A TON of fun things planned this week, so hopefully there’ll be a My Week in Pictures post next week!


Lots of love,
Laurie

FAVOURITE AUTUMN NAILS | DAY 19

Hi there lovely faces!

I have one nail varnish I fall in love with every single year in autumn/winter. It’s OPI’s Every Month is Oktoberfest, a dark – almost black – purple with burgundy shimmer. It’s just a gorgeous nail colour! I do think it looks best on shorter nails though.

NAILS | SIMPLE HALLOWEEN NAILS | DAY 18

Disclaimer: This is NOT my idea nor my pictures! I saw this on Beauty Before Breakfast - which is a Dutch blog - and I just needed to share it with you! Hope you don’t mind  <3
This nail art is super-duper simple! Paint your nails in one colour, wait for it to dry and dab a bit of another colour on your finger and stamp it on your nails! It will get a bit messy, but to me, Halloween is all about getting messy (fake blood wise). 

Lots of love, 
Laurie

QUOTE | THE MOMENT OF IMPACT | DAY 15



The moment of impact proves potential for change. Has ripples effects far beyond what we can predict. Sending some particles crashing together. Making them closer than before. While sending others spinning off into great ventures. Landing them where you've never thought you've found them. That's the thing about moments like these. You can't, no matter how hard you try, controlling how it's going to affect you. You just got to let the colliding part goes where they may. And wait. For the next collision.

001. I hate being ill! In last week’s post I told you that I was feeling fatigue and on Tuesday I actually got a really bad cold. I think my maxillary sinus got a bit infected too, as I was in quite a lot of pain (I couldn’t fall asleep thanks to that). I am feeling a ton better already though!

WEEK IN PICTURES #2 | DAY 13

Hi there lovely faces! I did a few fun things this week but I got a really nasty cold, so that’s a bit of a bummer. Oh well, let’s see what I’ve been up to!

NEW IN | PHILOSOPHY PURITY MADE SIMPLE | DAY 12

Hi there lovely faces!
If you follow my blog you probably know that I want to get a Foreo Luna, I’ve been doing some research and found that the Philosophy Purity cleanser works really well for a lot of people (also in combination with a cleansing device such as a Clarisonic or a Foreo Luna). I bought the 90ml one to try it out.

I will do a full review later on my blog when I’ve tested it!

Lots of love,

Laurie

This picture is taken by myself, I did make the wound myself as well.

Hi there lovely faces! I am a big lover of watching YouTube videos and as I love creating fake wounds and gory stuff, I find Halloween Tutorials very interesting. I thought it would be a good idea to share my favourite tutorials at this moment to give you some ideas!

TAG | AUTUMN | DAY 10

As it’s October, I just needed to do the Autumn Tag! Hope you like it!

Favourite thing about Autumn?
The cosiness. I’m more of a summer person, but I love layering clothing and mixing textures. Burning candles, duvet covers, walking around in a big jumper and slippers, drinking late macchiato… Why does the weather have to be so cold and miserable in the Netherlands?!

Favourite drink?
Late Macchiato. Without a doubt! I like coffee, but this milky sweet variant is soooo good!

001. I’m feeling so fatigue lately… I think it’s because of the weather plus my irregular schedule at school. Any tips? Getting out of bed is getting harder and harder…

MY WEEK IN PICTURES #1 | DAY 6

Hi there lovely faces! In this October Birthday Month series I’m going to do a My Week in Pictures post every Sunday! Hope you like them! Just a little disclaimer: I kind of have a kind of boring life and I kind of forget sometimes to take pictures… Just so you know haha!

QUOTES | DAY 5

Hi there lovely faces! Today’s OBM post is about quotes! Quotes that represent me, how I see things or just quotes that I think are funny or recognizable. Hope you enjoy it!

I’m quite a quiet person. I think and over-think EVERYTHING and that’s something I don’t really like about myself. I don’t talk that much about personal things and if I do, it’s to someone who’s close to me.

4 October 2013

WISHLIST | BIRTHDAY EDITION | DAY 4

Hi there lovely faces! For today’s OBM post I’m doing a Birthday Wishlist or a ‘What to get as a present for someones birthday’. This will be a mixture of things I want to get for myself (those will be more on the pricier side) and things I think would be fun to get or give. Hope you enjoy!

Burt’s Bees Lip balm, Maybelline Babylips
Everyone can use a good lip balm! I haven’t tried these yet and I’ve heard such good things about them! They aren’t expensive either.

Foreo Luna Mini
You have seen this in this wishlist. I’ve already told you I wanted to get it after my birthday, so that’s why I put it with these things. I’m not expecting anyone to give it to me as a present as it’s expensive haha.

Tangle Teezer
You have seen this in this wishlist. This is also something I’m going to get after my birthday if no-one gives it to me as a present. It’s not super expensive, so it would be nice as a present. (Check if your friend already has a detangling brush though haha!)

Jewellery / Accessories
If your friend wears jewellery/accessories and you know which style she likes, it’s always fun to give it as a present! I often do this actually.  Prices vary, so it depends on what you get and what your budget is.

Makeup
Again, if you know your friend loves makeup, you could easily give makeup as a present. Assuming your friend isn’t a Beauty Guru and doesn’t have a hunormous makeup collection, it’s quite easy to find something they’ll like!

And if you don’t know your friend that well…Gift cards!
If you don’t know a friend that well, but you still want to get something, a gift card will be a good and safe option. Choose one you can use at multiple shops!

Lots of love,

Laurie
