Blogmas: Must visit webshop ♡ StyleWe

Hey everyone,

Nowadays shopping is easier than ever. Less and less people go to the store and purchase all their items online. I have to say that I prefer buying things online, especially clothes. I'm the kind of person who needs to think it trough for a little while if I'm going to buy it or not. It's also very fun to look and discover new fashion stores that you didn't know were around. I can remember when I was around 15 years old I was searching fashion stores online and put everything in my basket. It was like creating my online dream wardrobe . For today I'm going to share a fashion store that I've recently discovered and is really cool. Especially now that Christmas is just around the corner a lot of shopping needs to be done! If you want to know what I'm talking about read further now. Get cozy and let's get started!

Blogmas: Favorite Festive Films

Hey everyone,

It's December, a month with a lot of cool and exciting things happening! Looking back on this year, I remember the day it was the 1st of January and thought this year is going to go by very quickly. December is the month of baking my favorite Christmas cookies, going to London and of ice skating. Although I'm not really a fan of cold weather, Christmas break is definitely my favorite holiday. Christmas is a time where all my family members are together in one place and spend time with each other. In our busy lives we often get so caught up in our own world that you almost forget how fast time goes by. That's why Christmas is so nice and all the decorations and pretty Christmas trees make it even better. Around November I always start watching Christmas movies. They're just so fun to watch and it's also really relaxing. Under your cozy blanket, a cup of coffee and with a bowl of popcorn. Right now I'm really into the Hallmark Christmas movies that I watch on YouTube. Here's a list of my top Christmas movies! 

Favorite Festive Films



1. A Princess for Christmas

Sweater weather shopping guide

Hey everyone,

It´s starting to look a lot like winter! The weather in Holland is really cold at the moment. It´s cold, sunny and without any wind. It´s the perfect winter weather for a long walk on the beach, iceskating or playing tennis. I still need to buy a warm hat and a pair of gloves for these cold days. A quick life update: this week has gone by pretty quickly. On November 23thrd I turned 19 and left school early because of my birthday. It was a fun day and my family and friends definitely made my day perfect. I received a few things from Pandora, Hollister and on top of that I got my first car! Let me know in the comments if you would like me to do a birthday haul. This friday I went on a test study day at the Univeristy of Leiden to see if law was really something I liked. It ended up to be very cool and I think it will really be something I see myself doing next year. Read further for a sweater weather shopping guide and my favorite sweater from Dresslily. Let's get started!


Sweater weather shopping guide

Sweaters are really a winter must have in every girl's wardrobe. They are comfortable and warm. Personally I like sweaters that are made from wool better than cotton sweaters. Just because they are warmer and perfect for cold days. 

Sweater weather shopping guide

1. Choose your style                                                                                                               A sweater can soon look too casual, especially for the fashionista' s under us. It's all about choosing the right style, patterns and materials. Nowadays there are so many different kinds of sweaters. There are cropped sweaters, cable knit sweaters or v-neck sweaters. It's really about choosing your own style that's suits your personality. 

2. Better too big than too small                                 
When I go to a store and ask for advice they almost always give me a size small. Especially when I was in Rome at the Twin-Set store. I ended up trying a sweater she thought would fit but actually was two size too small haha. Try buying your sweater not too small, not only because it doesn't look good. Also because you have to feel comfortable in it too.

3. Material matters                                                  
What I find is that a lot of the cheaper brands like Forever 21 and H&M have sweaters that are made from acrylic material. I don't really like this material because it doesn't keep you very warm. The more expensive brands in general have better materials like 100% wool or cotton. It's important to look at the materials before buying a sweater. You don't want to feel itchy on Christmas Day! 

My favorite sweater is from the brand called Dresslily. Dresslily is an online store where you can get party outfits, winter accessories and all at an affordable price. They also offer free worldwide shipping and have thousands of new products everyday. This sweater is perfect for cold winter days. It looks nice in combination with a pair of skinny jeans, booties and some cute accessories to make the outfit complete. I even think it's a cool sweater to wear for Christmas. The rhinestones and the white makes it look very wintery.

It's already the end of today's post. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know in the comments below what your favorite sweater looks like: v-neck or a cropped sweater?

4 Cool dorm room decorating tips

Hey everyone,

Decorating your room is always very fun to do. The holiday season is here and it's time to make your dorm room cozy and festive. Maybe you've seen my other post about how to make your room winter proof. If you haven't seen it yet you can click here. Read further for some cool tips to turn your dorm room into the coolest room! I also want to share a very cute pillow from Dresslily. Let's get started!

1. The first tip I would give is make a big photo collage on your wall. Adding photos of friends, family, fun events and memorable days is a very nice and cute idea to make your room special and it shows your personality as well. To add a festive touch adding a few string lights around your collage makes your room instantly more festive and Christmas ready.

2. Throw blankets are really a must have now that the cold 
winter weather is finally here. There are in so many cute colors, prints and patterns that there will always be one that matches your room. For Christmas and the winter season it's nice to maybe have a checked blanket, or a fluffy one. For years I had a red fluffy blanket that I got really attached to.

3. My next decoration tip for your dorm room would be to add a mirror. Mirrors make your room look bigger and it's also very handy to do your hair and makeup without having to go to the bathroom. To add the Christmas feeling you can add string lights around the mirror. It instantly looks like you are in your own winter wonder land haha.

4. My last decor tip would be to add pillows. If you have a big room you can put them on your couch, in my case I love to put hem on my bed. I received a very cute pillow from Dresslily. Dresslily is an online webshop that has very trendy and affordable clothing, makeup and home decorations. They offer worldwide shipping and always have great deals and have thousands of new arrivals. The pillow looks like a doughnut and is really cute! I love decorating my room for festive occasions just like Christmas. Although this pillow is not for Christmas it's still very nice. Pillows make your room cozy and they are very comfortable too. I think for the past year I haven't changed my pillows on my bed, so this doughnut shaped pillow is a nice addition.

Zo maak je je kamer winterproof

Hoi allemaal! 

De kerst komt steeds dichterbij! Ik Kan bijna niet geloven hoe snel dit jaar is gegaan. Het lijkt wel of elk jaar sneller gaat. De periode voor keert vind ik eigenlijk het allerleukst. Vroeger ging ik altijd samen met mijn ouders rondrijden in de buurt om kerstverlichting te bekijken. Er was altijd een huis die echt over de top versierd was, van het dak tot aan de tuin compleet met lampen en kerstbomen. Echt super cool! Sinds gisteren heb ik dan ook een kerstboom in mijn kamer neergezet en mijn lichtpiramides van de zolder gehaald. Maar een kamer is niet compleet zonder de juiste verlichting. Lees gauw verder hoe je jouw kamer kerst proef en winterklaar kunt maken! 

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor winter hurry up quotes
Verlichting maakt je huis of kamer gezellig. Er zijn zo veel verschillende soorten kerstverlichting. Het mooist vind ik lichtsnoer met lampionnen en of met sterren. Die doen me altijd denken aan een koude winterse dag. Deze heb ik dan ook uitgekozen op de webshop van Lampenonline. Lampenonline heeft alles wat je maar nodig hebt aan verlichting, niet alleen voor de kerst maar ook gewoon voor buiten of binnen. Ik was erg blij toen ik deze webshop ontdekt had omdat er een hele grote collectie is, voor iedereen is er wel wat te vinden. Of het nou gekleurde verlichting is of een simpel lichtsnoer. Ik wist eigenlijk meteen al welke verlichting ik wilde hebben om mijn kamer gezellig te maken voor de kerst. Het eerste item dat ik heb gekozen is het lampionnensnoer. Toen ik het pakketje thuis kreeg was ik erg nieuwsgierig(eigenlijk altijd haha) en blij verast. Ik vond het lichtsnoer echt super mooi! De lampen geven ook best veel licht. Het staat bijvoorbeeld leuk in een boekenkast, je bureau of in de woonkamer.

Mijn andere aankoop is een lichtsnoer met lampjes in de vorm van sterren. Deze vond ik ook erg mooi en kan eigenlijk ook overal in je kamer of woonkamer. Je krijgt meteen de indruk dat je kamer gezellig is en perfect voor de kerst in combinatie met een kerstboom. Ik zou Lampenonline zeker aanraden als je veel keus en snelle levering wil hebben. Het is een leuke en goede webshop en zeker een aanrader voor de volgende keer!

My ideal date night outfit

Hey everyone,

Do you know that feeling when you have finally scored a romantic date with the person you've been fantasying about for weeks, but you don't know what to wear? I think 'oh my gosh what do I wear' goes trough every girl's mind just before a date. Fall is perfect for long walks on the beach, watching sunsets and going to scary movies. Clothes are a way to express yourself without having to use any words. There are so many different styles and it's all about wearing clothes that you feel comfortable, pretty and confident in at the same time. But a perfect date night outfit can't be perfect without the right lingerie of course.

Dermalogica Clear Start oil clearing matte moisturizer review

Hey everyone,

Recently I bought my first skincare product from the brand Dermalogica. I've heard so many good things about this brand that I had to try it out as well. I've tried it out for about two weeks now and I would love to tell you everything about the product and my personal opinion. If you haven't seen last weeks post about my Clarisonic you can visit it here. Let's get right to it!

Dermalogica clear start matte moisturizer oil skin review

The product that I bought from Dermalogica is called the Matte Moisturizer with spf 15. The moisturizer is from the Clear start series and is specifically made for teenager and young adults. This cream is for the oily skin and it's perfect as my skin is very oily in the t-zone. The areas around my nose and cheeks are where it's the worst. I thought why not try this moisturizer and see what it does to my skin. 

Dermalogica Clear Start oil clearing matte moisturizer review



The first time I applied it on my face it felt really nice. After a few minutes I could already feel that my skin felt a lot softer. The matte effect is also visible which makes your skin look really clean and healthy. I have to say I already expected that this product would be great because it's a top brand and Dermalogica is recommended a lot. Until now I've used the moisturizer everyday and  the result is still very good. The cream smells also really clean and I love that my skins doesn't look oily anymore after I apply the moisturizer. That was my main goal. The cream has spf 15 so you don't need to apply sunscreen anymore for the winter. 

Dermalogica Clear Start oil clearing matte moisturizer review

Overall I'm really happy that I tried this matte moisturizer from Dermalogica. It's one of my favorite skincare brands right now and I'm definitely going to try out the face wash products from the Dermalogica Clear Start range. I got the moisturizer for 16 euros on the webshop Lookfantastic as they had the product the cheapest. 

Rating: 4/5

Thank you very much for reading today's post I hope you liked it! Have you ever tried a product from Dermalogica?

Have a lovely day,
