mane'ntail-1

ย Hi lovelies!

I wanted to start this Monday differently. Something you might be interested inย and has nothing to do with fashion but with beauty. Once in a while, I like to share my favorite products with you and share some secrets. This is a secret I have never shared with you guys before. I assure you it’s one you’ll be surprised of.ย  The first time I heard of this shampoo I thought my friend was kidding with me. Seriously. I was like, are you serious? Continue Reading…

Beauty || Body Care

juni 30, 2014

Hi dearies!
How was your weekend? Did you watch the football match last night? The Dutch soccer team is doing so well! Very proud of them!
For the first time in a long time, I went offline shopping on Saturday. After a very hectic week, I thought it was time to spend some quality time with me, myself and the stores. Sounds like a good plan right?! And it was! I succeeded in buying two items that I will show you on the blog soon. Take note: the sale season has already started for most of the stores!

Beauty || BE Creative Make Up

juni 23, 2014

Hi lovelies!
How have you been? I am so sorry for my absence. Sometimes it’s just so hard to manage and balance everything that’s going on in your life. In this case, I had to decrease my blogging activity. However, I can already see the light at the end of this spinning tunnel! Within a week, I will be back and put all my energy and love into blogging again!

Beauty Monday || Spring Ready

mei 25, 2014

Hi lovelies!
How was your weekend? Did you have a great time? I showed you last week’s diary pictures yesterday! Hope you enjoyed it!
For today, a beauty related post on Monday (still going strong with Make-up(/Beauty) Monday! ;)) I wanted to show you my two new favorites colors that are perfect for this season. The white nail polish is from Alessandro and the natural light pink nail polish is from Only You. The one from Only You doesn’t cover your nails with a thick and firm layer, which makes it look very natural. I love the fact that they have this little text written on them. Nr 684 is called ‘love me tender‘.

Beauty Make up Monday || Pearls & Chanel

mei 19, 2014

Hi lovelies,
It’s already my last day in Stockholm. Today, I will leave this city and head back to Amsterdam! Back to business.
It’s Monday again and since I’m trying to do beauty-related posts too, I wanted to show you my love for two things at the moment: Chanel Les 4 Ombres eye shadow palette for smokey eys and pearls. Lots of pearls.ย 
Pearls found their way back thanks to Chanel who showed beautiful creations on the runway at their Spring/Summer fashion show in Paris in October last year. Inspired by Chanel, I found this beautiful bracelet at Zara that also comes with a necklace. Looking at my jewelry collection, I found more pearl items and now I’m using them again! Totally in love with pearls. And Chanel.
How about you? Do you share this love? ๐Ÿ˜‰


Love, Farah

Make up Monday || KIKO

mei 12, 2014

 Hi dearies,
How was your weekend? Did you spend some quality time with your mommy on Mother’s Day? 
Mommies are the bests, we have to cherish them, always. I bet your mom is the greatest in your eyes and that’s exactly how it should be. I’m also very happy with and blessed with my mom-in-law. Have to admit that as well ;). And not only because she’s a beautiful woman from the inside and the outside, but also because she has brought up the most lovable son that I can call my biggest love.
Let’s talk beauty because I’m getting a bit emotional here ๐Ÿ™‚ Since I get a lot of questions about my make-up, I decided to share some of my make-up favorites with you guys! Make up Monday it is! I’m not quite sure yet whether this will be a weekly thing but just let’s start for today :).
Let me introduce to you one of my favorite make-up brands at the moment: KIKO. An Italian professional cosmetics brand that stands for: “Be What You Want to Be.” With the help of their custom-made products, you can express your own personality. But, for my Dutch readers, it has one disadvantage: we don’t have a KIKO store in the Netherlands! ๐Ÿ™ But it is possible to order them online. You can check out all the info here.
You all know that I’m a lipstick addict and I discovered KIKO because I tried one of their lipsticks this one time. One of my sweetest friends bought me one when she was in Spain. The rich true colors, from nude to deep red, are long-lasting and they don’t dry out your lips, what a success!
But nowadays, it’s not only the lipstick I love. I’m hooked to the blush and bronzer as well! I apply those with their make up brush.  Thanks to a tip from fellow blogger Nathalie, I use their brown eyeshadow as eyebrow powder. Speaking about thinking out of the box right? ๐Ÿ˜‰
Hope you liked this post & let me know if you would like to read/see other beauty related posts!

Love,
Farah

FASHjournal || Fashiolista x YSL

februari 14, 2014

Read all about a magic stick after the jump!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back on track and glad to share the Fashiolista x YSL event with y’all!
Even though I mostly share my outfits and thoughts on fashion with you, I’m also a makeup lover! Always have been. But I have to admit, make up isn’t my profession and I do not know all the ins and outs. Therefore, I was really fortunate that I could attend this event where the Yves Saint Laurent makeup artists told us about some magic keys ;).
Chances are that you’re familiar with those bags under the eyes (don’t we all want to sleep for 8 hours a night;)), and that you just can’t manage to get rid of them. Well, I can tell you about this magic stick that can actually help you out! I’ve seen with my own eyes, on my own skin! Let me introduce you to the Touche Eclat, a concealer designed to correct signs of fatigue, to highlight facial features and to improve the skin’s radiance.
This magic stick does not only camouflage, better yet, it illuminates. You can use it under the eyes, on your eyelids, along the edge of your lips, on the middle of your forehead and on the bridge of your nose.

A special limited edition is available in stores in this month, in panther print packaging. Go wild ladies!

After the correct shade was tested on my face, I was hooked! Make sure to get advice about what number suits you best. I must admit that I had never used a concealer before, but from now on, the Touche Eclat will be part of my beauty essentials!
Beside the make up talk, I must say that Fashiolista and YSL took really good care of us! They spoiled us with many drinks, bites and sweets (those macarons..).
Hope you enjoyed this article and let me know what your beauty trick is! 
Love, Farah

Great atmosphere at club ABE 

Drinks served by handsome guys!


How cute are these goodiebags?!

Beauty || Nailcare

december 3, 2013

This is the very first post about beauty that I share with you. I don’t know if it’s going to be a monthly thing, but I wanted to share something different with you.

Nails and hands. Something I should pay more attention to. I have to admit that I don’t do it well enough, nor frequently enough. For my studies, I’m not allowed to wear nail polish. Therefore, I only use nail polish when there is an event or a special occasion. But, with the winter coming, it’s not only about having pretty nails. The cold weather makes my hands very dry. It’s the time to pay more attention to the hands! If you just think a moment about how important your hands are, you’ll realize you really have to treat them with care and love. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do! Using these essential nail and handcare products for beautiful hands.

What are your favorite hand/nailproducts and what do you do to take good care of the hands?
Love, Farah

Beauty || Tucked in bun

augustus 26, 2013

Hi lovelies!
A different post than the usual outfit posts! Sometimes I just really want to share a beauty post with you when I’m totally in love with it. When I was traveling in Asia, I saw so many girls walking around with this hairstyle. It’s just that I couldn’t figure out how they did it! But then, my bestie’s cousin, who is an Indonesian local, showed us how to do it! The heat in Asia really makes you wanna shave your hair. And I think that that’s the reason that girls go for updos that look great and are easy to do, (which is nice since you have to do it every single day).
Since I don’t do tutorials myself, I looked up this one on Youtube for you! It’s so easy and done within 5 minutes! If you like this hairdo, check out the tutorial here!
Love, Farah

P.S. Since my hair is still short in the front because of the bobcut, I had to use bobby pins. I think that this makes it look less pretty but definitely didn’t stop me from doing this hairstyle!:D

Beauty || NEW hairstyle

juni 15, 2013

I did it. Changed it. My hair!! Something I’ve never done before! I’ve never even dyed my hair. Just to give you an idea that this was a ‘oh-my-gosh-will-I-regret-this’-decision.
A friend of mine recommend me to go to Anand Aksel, who currentlty works at Coupe d’etat in Amsterdam. He said I wouldn’t regret that. He was totally right! I came in with the idea to cut bangs but unfortunately that was not suitable for my hair. But…
It was time. Time to do something craaazy. Time for a bob cut! Do you like it?

Beauty || Braided Bun

juni 5, 2013

I thought you’d maybe like to read/see something different from fashion. Since I get a lot of questions about my hair (e.g. which products I use, what I do to take care of my hair), I thought it might would be nice to write something about a hairdo! This is a simple yet sophisticated look which is ready within just 5 minutes. Perfect if you don’t have a lot of time but you do want to look gooood!;)
Let me introduce you to my favorite hairbloggers: the sisters Mimi and Leyla of Luxy Hair!ย  ร just enjoy watching the tutorials on youtube since they make you feel like you can actually do it too yourself! Ok, that feeling stops though when she starts braiding with 4(!!!) strands of hair :p. Oh, and if you’re searching for some extensions, you might want to take a look on luxyhair.com! Unfortunately, I cannot speak from my own experience since I don’t have extensions but I’ve read some very good reviews about them!
If you’re curious about this look: watch the tutorial right here!

Love, Farah
