FRIDAY FAVOURITE | TANGLE TEEZER

Hi there lovelies!

Time for another Friday Favourite! Every Friday at 10AM (Central European Time), I’ll post something I’ve been loving lately. It can be absolutely anything. Products, songs, clothing items or accessories, YouTubers or other blogs, you name it.

Disclaimer: when featuring a product (skincare, makeup, nail varnish, etc.) it won’t be a full review of that specific product! Just me briefly telling you why I’ve been liking it. If you want to see a full review on a certain product, just tell me in the comments below and I’ll see what I can do for you! J

NEW IN | CANON 50MM 1.8 LENS


Hi there lovely faces!

I’m a real techie and I love getting new things to photograph with. I was looking into new lenses and came across Eva’s (Mylifeaseva on YouTube) video on how to start a successful YouTube Channel. She recommended a Sigma 50mm 1.4 lens, because it creates a gorgeous depth of field (nice blurry background). This lens is quite expensive so I did a little search for a cheaper alternative. I found the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens and looked at some reviews. This lens looks really promising and I hope I’ll like it!

PERSONAL | THE BLOGGER COMMENT CHALLENGE

Picture found at Teskuh.nl

Whilst hunting for new blog post ideas, I came across the Blogger Comment Challenge. I saw this on Scandalous Beauty Online and she got it from the Independent Fashion Bloggers.

Commenting on blog posts means a lot to the person behind a blog. No matter how many followers they have, if someone takes the time to comment, they appreciate it a lot. I read a lot of different blogs and I comment every once in a while, but that doesn’t happen very often. I want to challenge myself to comment more on blog post of fellow bloggers.

FRIDAY FAVOURITE | ESSIE MILLIONAILS

Hi there lovelies!

Today I want to introduce a new feature to my blog: Friday Favourites! Instead of doing monthly favourites I’m starting this series. Every Friday at 10AM (Central European Time), I’ll post something I’ve been loving lately. It can be absolutely anything. Products, songs, clothing items or accessories, YouTubers or other blogs, you name it.

Disclaimer: when featuring a product (skincare, makeup, nail varnish, etc.) it won’t be a full review of that specific product! Just me briefly telling you why I’ve been liking it. If you want to see a full review on a certain product, just tell me in the comments below and I’ll see what I can do for you! J

SFX | KILLED BY MR VALENTINE

Hi there lovelies!

Day before Valentine’s Day I played around a bit and this was the outcome. I thought I’d share it with you all. Hope you like it!

PERSONAL | THE DAY AFTER

Hi there lovelies!

I wanted to put this post up earlier today, but I couldn’t get round to it as I needed to go to work. Needless to say I wanted to put it up today anyway! So here it is. <3

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Hi there lovelies!

I hope you’ll all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! My mum has been making jokes all week about how many roses I will get today, so I thought I’d trick her. I’m ordering some roses for my mum online. When they come to our house, she’ll think they’re for me, but no, they’re for her. Just imagine her face going from “lol Laurie has a Valenineee, I’m going to make fun of her all month!” to “Wait, what?” I can’t wait! (Ps. She doesn't know I have a blog, so she won't see this post haha)

PERSONAL | WHY BEING SINGLE IS OK

Hi there lovelies!

Valentine’s Day is coming up, or Single Awareness Day as some like to call it, and most people are sad that they’re still single. Let me tell you something: being single is not that bad at all! It all about how you look at it.

FIRST IMPRESSION | ESTÉE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATION

Hi there lovelies!
As you can tell from the title, I’m going to give you my first thoughts on the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. I bought this foundation just before Christmas, but I couldn’t find the time to write this post.

NEW IN | MICHAEL KORS GOODNESS

Hi there lovelies!

Yesterday I went to the Designer Outlet in Roermond and I already knew I wanted to get a MK watch. This will be a picture-heavy post, but I think I don’t need to explain anything. So get some tea, sit back and enjoy these pictures. J

UPDATE | GETTING OFFICIAL

Hi there lovelies! 
As you can probably tell from the title of this post: I got my own domain name! Now I’m still blogging from blogger.com, but this will give my blog a more professional look I think. I am working really hard to get my blog to the next level and this is the first step. I’m so excited!

PERSONAL | TINY LITTLE UPDATE


Hi there lovelies!

I just wanted to quickly update you all! I’ve been thinking about making videos for a while now and I’ve been playing around with After Effects. This little intro (or outro, I’m still a bit undecided haha) is my first outcome and I quite like it!

Click here if you cannot see the video. 

Let me know what you think! <3

Lots of love,
Laurie
