3 Things I am grateful for

3 Things I am grateful for
Today something a bit different on my blog! It's been a few months since I've written a post on here, but I'm back! Nowadays it's so easy to start comparing yourself with others and to overlook the positive things you already have in your life. (I'm guilty..;)) If you recognise yourself doing this, it's okay because it's in human nature to compare yourself to others. However, if you start to feel bad when doing that, then it's good to take a step back and self-reflect in order to not let it get to you. (which is of course easier said than done) 

3 Things I am grateful for
One thing that could possibly help is to write down a few things each day that you are grateful for. This helps for you to process your thoughts and to focus more on the good, shifting away from the bad which was caused by comparing yourself. You don't have to write whole paragraphs (unless you enjoy writing then definitely do it😉) and otherwise just a few sentences or even words are enough to shift your focus. After a while, let's say a week or a few weeks you slowly get into the habit of it (usually takes 3 weeks to create a routine/stick to a new habit). It's something small to do that can really change your way of thinking. And if you think in a positive way, you'll see that when you look in the mirror too! Below I'll share a few of my things that I'm grateful for. So let's get comfy, grab your tea  or coffee and let's get right to it! 

1. The people in my life 

I'm very thankful for my parents, my lovely boyfriend (if you're reading this hi!;), friends.. grandmother.. It's a really nice feeling to have some people around you that care about you and can say everything to. I can say that these people feel like home to me. 

2. My health 

I'm also grateful for my health. The only thing I'm coping with are my pms symptoms, like restless legs, tiredness, etc. Especially in high school I didn't know how to cope with it. But now luckily with taking magnesium, having a good sleeping routine, picking out foods that help with specific fats etc, and working out it has become a lot less. Now I know that a week before my period I'll probably have less energy so I plan a bit around it if possible to make that week a bit less busy, because I noticed extra stress can increase the symptoms. 

3. Being able to witness growth

Sometimes I don't realise how much I have progressed and grown. It's usually in moments like when I go for a walk and thoughts pop up that I realise for example I handle some things differently like how to cope with failures or mindset or things like that. And I find it beautiful to see that in the people in my life as well! Nobody is perfect, we're all human so seeing a friend progress and growing compared to last year is really nice to see. Because really I believe the people you spend most of your time with influence you as well, even just a tiny bit. So choose wisely who you spend time with and give your energy to. 

3 Things I am grateful for

We're nearing the end thanks a lot for reading! I hope you enjoyed it and maybe even that it helped you even a tiny bit towards creating a more positive mindset. And remember that having a positive mindset does not equal being happy all the time. It's more the perspective you take in life. I wish you a lovely weekend and will be back soon for another post!

Don't Get Burned! Top Sunscreen Picks for Summer Skin Protection

holiday picture
Summer is that time of year, full of sunshine, warm weather, and outdoor activities. However, with all the fun in the sun comes the need for sun protection. Sunscreen is essential to protect your skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays, which can cause sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer. In this blog post, I will be discussing the best sunscreen brands for summer and the reasons why you should wear sunscreen. Get comfy and get ready for some great picks to stay protected this summer and enjoy it as much as possible!😎

First and foremost, it is important to choose a sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection. This means that the sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays can go deep into your skin and cause long-term damage, while UVB rays are responsible for sunburn. A broad-spectrum sunscreen will protect your skin from both types of UV rays.

neutrogena sunscreen
One of the best sunscreen brands for summer is Neutrogena. Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen is a popular choice each summer and I have to say so far it' s one of my favorites. This sunscreen provides broad-spectrum protection and has a non-greasy, lightweight feel. It is also water-resistant, making it perfect for a day at the beach or pool! (definitely a must right?!😉) I think I love most the fact that the sunscreen isn't greasy, because my skin is quite oily already.

Another great option is EltaMD. EltaMD’s UV Clear Facial Sunscreen is a favorite among dermatologists and skincare professionals. This sunscreen is oil-free, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic, making it perfect for those with sensitive skin, like me and probably many others! It also contains antioxidants that help to protect the skin from environmental damage.

For those who prefer a natural option, I would recommend Badger Balm. Badger Balm’s Unscented Sunscreen is made with organic, non-GMO ingredients and provides broad-spectrum protection. It is also water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and is reef-safe, meaning it is safe for marine life.

It was quite a search to find a sunscreen that wasn't sticky and that I wasn't allergic to aha.. I tried out for example a sunscreen from Nivea which isn't specifically for your face, but it stings quite badly in your eyes when swimming or sweating.. so the Neutrogena sunscreen was a pleasant discovery!!

Now let’s talk about why you should wear sunscreen. As mentioned earlier, UV rays can cause sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer. Sunburn can be painful and can cause peeling and blistering. Premature aging can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Skin cancer is the most serious consequence of UV exposure and can be deadly. By wearing sunscreen, you can help to prevent these negative effects!

In addition to protecting your skin from UV rays, wearing sunscreen can also improve the overall health of your skin. Sun damage can cause inflammation, which can lead to acne, rosacea, and other skin conditions. By wearing sunscreen, you can help to prevent inflammation and keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.

So.. sunscreen is a must-have for summer. So make it your favorite accessory! When choosing a sunscreen, make sure to choose a brand that provides broad-spectrum protection. Neutrogena, EltaMD, and Badger Balm are all good options. Remember to apply sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating. By wearing sunscreen, you can protect your skin from UV damage and improve the overall health of your skin. You'll thank yourself not only later but now as well;)

Thank you very much for stopping by on my little corner on the internet! I hope you enjoyed today's topic and post! Let me know in the comments below what your favorite sunscreen brand is!



Rome City Trip // Must See, Eat & Do!

I hope you're having a nice weekend so far! I have just arrived back home from a short trip to visit family in Rome and really enjoyed it. After the exam period it was nice having a break before the new period starts tomorrow. Holidays always go by way too fast aha.. But that does make you appreciate everything a lot more. While I was in Rome I have been taking some pictures and thinking of some things I could share with you on my little corner on the internet 😉 regarding must do things in Rome. So let's get comfy with a up of tea or coffee and let's get right to it! 

"Do not follow there where the path may lead. Instead, go where there is no path and leave a trail. "


To start, the Pantheon is definitely a place you must visit when you're in Rome! I choose it as a must because it's a special building. It's one of the few buildings of the city that's still fully intact after many many years.. incredible right?! This is all due to the manner in which it is build. What I found quite impressive is the inside brickwork that really shows are skilful the Romans were already at that time. Maybe also fun to know is that it's a temple designed by a son of an emperor, dedicated to holy gods. Also when exiting the temple, I love the view that you have looking a the porch from inside. Definitely worth a photo! If you're planning on visiting the city very soon, then maybe it's good to know that it's still free to enter now, but within a few days they're asking a fee. So make sure to be on time! 


This is a very famous square where you can go to the cinema, the theatre and also where the Italian Supreme Court is build. I'm not sure if it's possible for visitors to enter the court, but the square is already nice to walk around a bit. It's definitely worth researching whether you can enter the court to hear a case they make public!


If your stay includes a Sunday, I would recommend going to see the pope at 12pm. Even if you're not religious, it's just a memorable experience standing on the square and listening to the speech of the pope from his balcony. Make sure to arrive about half an hour earlier, so you can skip the longer lines at the security and have a good spot as well. 


And of course shopping can't be forgotten aha! (only if you're into shopping😙) In Rome sometimes you can find those street markets with some handy things, like socks, dresses and many more things that are quite useful and affordable for students like me. It's best to check the markets that are a bit further away from for example major tourist attractions because they're not as good and overpriced as well. Besides the markets a shopping center called Euroma2 I find really nice! It has many shops, like Hollister and H&M, but also Italian brands like Zuiki. Zuiki is a bit similar to the H&M, but than the Italian version of it. I went there and got for example the jumper I'm wearing in the picture, it's really cozy!! On the right you can see the picture with all the colourful coats from an Italian designer brand called Max & Co, it would be my dream to have a coat from there😍!!


At a small restaurant called Cantieri you can have a drink, lunch or dinner outside in a small car. I haven't been there yet but it looks really cute with the tiny chairs. For example if you're spending Valentine's Day in Rome and you choose to celebrate the day, it could be really cute going there with your boyfriend or girlfriend. (at least I would love to go there!!🙈) There's also another place called Mister Pizza that we kind of had a family tradition to always go there, as we thought they had the best pizza. But since covid they had to close unfortunately. However, and even better place with pizza and pasta came instead. They have besides the typical Italian snack called suppli also Sicilian snacks like Arrancini, which are the same almost as suppli, but a bit bigger. The place is called Mondo Arrancini. 


  1. Out of experience I would not recommend going to Rome in the middle of summer. Usually Italians take holiday during the months of July or August because it's too hot to stay in the city center and go somewhere else to cool off a bit. So the city is with a lot more tourists. It's nice to visit off season, like for example from now until May or June and after September. 
  2. If you still want nice weather, usually November is the rainiest month. End of January beginning of February is usually quite sunny and it feels like Spring already. So to catch some vitamin D make sure to avoid November 😉!
  3. Some stores have bad or no 4g connection in the centre, so if you rely on your card to pay through your phone, it's useful to always bring your physical card with you just in case there's no connection. 
  4. If you're arriving at the Rome Fiumicino airport and don't want to take a taxi, it's very easy to take the Leonardo Express train. It takes you to Termini station right in the city center near all the famous attractions in less than half an hour. Or you can take the Fiumicino airport bus directly to the city center. It might take a little bit longer, but is also quite fast and you arrive in the city center as well. 

Thanks very much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it! Leave a comment below what your favorite city so far is that you've visited, would love to know! Have a nice Sunday! 



Short City Trip to Stockholm! // Must Things to Do & See

Hope you're doing well!! It's already a few months ago since I went on a short trip to Stockholm and I loved the city a lot! Initially I wasn't sure what to expect, so I kind of went on the trip not having any expectations at all. It was also my first time going to a Scandinavian country, so that was really fun and eye opening aha! Since I enjoyed it a lot, I thought why not create a short post with some fun things to do and see in Stockholm and to just share my experience with you. Maybe it can be helpful if you're still in doubt about whether to visit Sweden or just to know a bit more about the city and see some pictures! I hope you'll enjoy reading it, get comfy with a cup of tea and let's get right to it! Here are some of my favourite things to do and see in Stockholm. 

The old city center of Stockholm is definitely my favourite part of the city! The old town, also called Gamla Stan is actually the very original centre of the city and comprises of the Stadsholmen island and the Riddarholmen, Strömsborg and Helgeandsholmen. Me and my friend arrived at the train station in the city in the newer part, and you can notice the difference in the ambience when you go more towards the older part of the city. It's really nice!! The architecture there in the old town is from the 17th and 18th century, with very cute tiny streets, those streets with the small round stones (which add to the ambience aha!), and the lovely squares with benches. The old town is full of cafes, restaurants and what I love the most is that the city is surrounded by water. It's really peaceful and you get some fresh air as well! Even though the city is quite big, you don't feel like it is very busy. I think that's because it's quite spacious and due to the water. 

Something that was also very fun that we got to experience actually by accident. We were specifically looking for it. But you know, we didn't know that actually there was a royal guard ceremony at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. Um. And it was like it started around 12:15 PM. In the courtyard, basically it's on weekdays and. Around 1:15 PM on Sundays. And there was like a guard change. And it was very, yeah, it was very fun. They were all dressed, the man guys, world dressed in blue. It's like a small performance. So that was actually really nice. 

There's also a very famous square in Stockholm that I would definitely recommend visiting. You instantly feel like you're scrolling through Google. It's like an iconic landmark and worth the visit and to take some photos as well. It's really colourful and very photogenic. It's nice to go for a stroll there and the Swedish people I find in general quite calm, that adds to the relaxed atmosphere there, despite it being quite crowded at times, mostly in weekends. 

                           GOOD TO KNOW☺

  1. As you may know or have heard before, Scandinavia can be quite expensive. Therefore any ways to save up a bit of money are always welcome. One thing you can do is to find for example an airbnb which has a kitchen that you can use. Or if you prefer to meet new people why you travel, and you're a student just like me, than going to a hostel can be a nice and fun experience. The hostel I stayed in was the Archipelago hostel right in the city center, Gamla Stan. Be aware that not each hostel has a kitchen that you can use to cook in. For example, the hostel I stayed in was only for using the fridge to store food or use the microwave to warm up food. So make sure to check that out beforehand. If you can cook yourself than you can cook for a few days in advance, which can save you lots of money instead of having to eat out or buy at a bakery! 
  2. Make sure to check out the weather or season of when planning on going to Stockholm. Maybe you're more into the summer weather or warmer weather in general, than going just before the peak/high season in the summer months is the perfect period to plan a visit to the city of water! I went end of April/beginning of May and it was already quite sunny and pleasant. We were really lucky with the weather! Another thing that was something I needed to get used to a bit, was that at 4 am it was already completely light outside aha! 
  3. Fun fact: Stockholm is actually built on 14 islands!! That's quite cool and impressive right?! So if you really like water and you want a nice place to relax, then Stockholm is really nice because it's surrounded by water. You can go for a stroll along the canals in nice weather in either Spring or Summer and can enjoy the water as well when sitting along the shoreline on a bench on in the grass having a picnic. 
Thank you very much for readings today's post! I hope you enjoyed it. I find it very fun to write; brings back all the memories! I hope you can make a decision with regards to whether to go to Sweden, or Stockholm specifically. Traveling has always been one of my favourite things to do in life. You learn so much about different cultures and also different environments and about yourself. I feel like I usually return from a trip like a different person and energised, but still like yourself of course. 😉



Estrid Vegan Razor Starter Kit Review

This blog post includes a gifted item. 

Estrid Vegan Razor Starter Kit Review
Hair removal has kind of always been, just like periods, a bit of a taboo topic I feel like. Razors can be quite costly, but luckily Estrid is a brand that has affordable vegan razors! I feel like it's only since very recently that in the media, magazines, on tv ads etc it's becoming more 'normal' and seen as normal for women to have no shaving days, or to be free in what they prefer! And that's how it always should have been aha! Whether you want to shave your armpits always, or you prefer to do it periodically, it's completely up to you. It's brave in this society to stand up for your beliefs and to try to not let the opinion of others define you! Personally I prefer to shave for example my legs and armpits, as I feel better doing that (and my deodorant works better having no fluff under there 🙈). If you're curious to know more about the brand, let's get comfy and get right to it! 

So Estrid is a brand that's quite affordable and I've seen it many times on Instagram and loved their colourful razors and cute color options. It's great that the razors are cruelty-free and created for women. What's also nice is that the razors are produced without any animal products in the hydrating strips. 

Estrid Vegan Razor Starter Kit Review

It's possible to buy the starter kit from Estrid for 9.95 euros and you can choose from a range of cute pastel colors that last quite long compared to the regular razors you would buy in a drug store. In each starter kit you can find a steel handle, which comes in the shades matcha, bloom, cloud, space, peach, and lemonade. I picked the color lemonade! I find yellow a really bright and happy color, so suitable for the sunny summer weather currently! Also the steel handle and the wall mount are in lemonade. What I find really useful is the wall mount! You can just easily attach the razor anywhere in your bathroom you want. I find that especially useful because usually I tend to be not very organised aha.. and this helps to just declutter my bathroom a bit and be able to attach it on the wall. 

Estrid Vegan Razor Starter Kit Review

The delivery is free. If you live in the Netherlands for example, you won't need to pay extra for shipping. And a perk is that it fits through your letterbox, so you won't have to stay home until it arrives or go to a post office to pick it up. On their website they have a subscription service where you can cancel anytime or pause anytime your want. It lets you choose how often you would like to have new blades to replace your old ones. Some options are for example, once a month, or every second month or even every third months. It really depends on how often you shave and whether you prefer to have some back up options at home just in case! And you can also skip a month or change how often you want to receive them anytime. Each package includes four different blades! What's also a nice touch to it, is that you can pick a reusable silicone case protector for when you're traveling abroad or go on a short trip, so it protects your razor. 

Estrid Vegan Razor Starter Kit Review
It's the first time that I have a razor from Estrid, or even other than the very basic ones from the drugstore and I really like it!! I used the razor today for the first time, and it's really smooth and easy to use. The razor is also very light weight and seems like it's durable as well, as it doesn't stretch easily. In about a month I'll do another update to see whether my opinion is the same, but so far it's very promising! :) Also if you love fashion, these women handbags might be something to check out! Soon more about that! 

Thank you very much for reading today's blog post! I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know in the comments below what vegan brands you've tried out so far?! 



Be Prepared for Rainy Days with Dingy Raincoats!

cute raincoat dogs
And it's officially summer! I love these days where it's just light until at least 10pm and you can just go for longer walks on the beach until late. It's just my favorite time of the year and wish it wouldn't go by so fast aha! But that it passes and knowing next year it comes back again is also the beauty in it I think. I recently received a very cute raincoat from a brand you might or might not know of.. Am really excited to share it here with you and hopefully you'll like it! Summers in the Netherlands are unfortunately not always sunny. So a raincoat definitely comes in handy! Let's get comfy and get right to it!

I love colourful clothes, especially for summer I feel like it's almost more suitable to wear brighter colors. But now that I'm thinking of it, I might want to try to start wearing more colourful clothes also in winter, because it brightens up the dark and gloomy weather and just to see if I like it or not! (comment below if you're like me or you wear colourful clothing all year round!) 
I received a raincoat from the brand called Dingy Weather and it's really cute! It's in in a soft green color and the outer fabric is made from 100% polyester. I think I would mostly wear this coat in Spring and autumn, as luckily the summers in the Netherlands are not that cold to be able to have to wear the coat aha! (although some days it can be quite cold) It's quite a long raincoat, so that makes it useful for when you have to cycle in the rain and want to prevent a part of your jeans to get wet. 
It's very lightweight and I find it comfortable as well! Which for me is almost the most important that a jacket is not only cute but also comfortable. It's of course water resistant! I've had jackets in the past that were rain jackets and ironically they turned out to be not water proof, so when I tried out this jacket in quite heavy rain it was great it worked well and kept me dry. 

There are a few handy things to keep in mind when looking for a raincoat. It's good to keep those in mind in order to choose the right one! 
1. A comfy and good hood --> this is actually one of the most important things to look at when shopping for raincoats. A good and comfy hood will keep your hair, and maybe makeup or just your whole head ;) dry and on rainy days it's much better and easier to wear the hood than to bring an umbrella with you. Ah and almost forgot, I have glasses so a good hood for me is a must to keep me from preventing of not seeing anything! 
2. The length --> it depends a bit on your preference whether you prefer a longer jacket or a shorter one. Personally I would prefer a longer one because you're more covered against the rain. And when going for a walk or any regular activity in your daily routine outside, you're for sure covered. Make sure to check the sizes whether for example you're an s or an m, because if a jacket is quite long you have to know that a jacket is not too long. Otherwise a size smaller is better. 
3. The fabric --> you want to pick a fabric that's breathable and light but at the same time is waterproof. Although keep in mind that jackets that are more breathable and more lightweight are usually known to be better at protecting you from the rain. 

Thanks a lot for reading today's post!! I hope you enjoyed it and let's hope that you'll have lots of sunny days ahead in the country you currently live and that rainy weather and raincoats will only be necessary from September onwards! 



JouwBox Review Charlotte Labee // Gezonde Musts + Winactie!

Jeetje het is gewoon alweer juni zeg! Wat gaat de tijd toch snel aha! Mijn tentamenweek is net weer achter de rug en ben wel opgelucht dat ik het nu wat rustiger aan kan doen. Ik ben nog even in afwachting van de resultaten en hopelijke vanaf volgende week officieel vakantie! Misschien heb jij ook wel een drukke periode achter de boeg en wordt het tijd dat je jezelf even extra mag verwennen.  Vandaag wil ik iets heel leuks delen waar je misschien wel of misschien nog niet van gehoord hebt! Het is een box met allerlei gezonde producten voor je lichaam en geest! Nieuwsgierig geworden?! Lees dan gauw verder! 😉

De Jouwbox is een box die ieder kwartaal verschijnt met allerlei gezonde producten voor je lichaam en geest. De producten worden gekozen door gezondheidsdeskundigen en de box heeft een waarde van €145 en is verkrijgbaar voor €45. Oja, ik mag 2 boxen weggeven door middel van een witactie op mijn Instagram, dus neem voor een kijkje daar en doe mee!! 

Ik heb zelf best een gevoelige huid door de rosacea op mijn wangen, waardoor het soms nog best lastig is om goede huidverzorgingsproducten te vinden die niet zorgen voor verergering. Maar deze reiniging van Erica was echt fijn. Mijn huid voelde achteraf lekker zacht en het is ook speciaal voor de gevoelige huid. Ook goed om te weten is dat het product vegan is en vrij van parfum. Want parfum kan soms een storend effect hebben op je huid of het nog verder uitdrogen, dus dat is super fijn dat dat er niet in zit!  
Allereerst zat er in de JouwBox een flesje magnesium olie van het merk Permsal. Eigenlijk hebben heel veel mensen een te kort aan magnesium en niet alleen sporters. Ik slik al best lang magnesium pilletjes omdat het mij helpt tegen rusteloze benen en mijn spieren ontspant. Een tekort aan magnesium kan leiden tot bijvoorbeeld problemen met slapen, spanning en spierpijn! Ik heb de olie uitgeprobeerd als afwisseling met de pilletjes! Je sprayt een paar keer op je huid en masseert het dan licht. Mijn huid op mijn benen ging in het begin een klein beetje tintelen (dat is normaal:) en laat je het ongeveer 20 minuutjes inwerken. Maar dat onrustige gevoel trok vrij snel weg, wat super fijn is!! 
Als tweede verrassing zat er een tandpasta in de jouwbox! Mooie en gezonde tanden horen gewoon bij je dagelijkse routine en verzorging. Vaak poets ik mijn tanden twee keer per dag, maar probeer de laatste tijd het naar drie keer op te schroeven aha! Ik heb er eigenlijk nooit bij stil gestaan dat tandpasta zonder fluoride een optie is. De tandpasta van BlueM is samengesteld door een team van kaakchirurgen, tandartsen en implantologen. Ook misschien leuk om te weten is dat er honing in de tandpasta zit, maar dit lijdt niet tot gaatjes gelukkig! Dit omdat de glucose in de honing als snel omgezet wordt naar zuurstof! Ik heb de tandpasta uitgeprobeerd en ben heel blij! Vond het fijn dat naar mint smaakt het dunner was (helpt goed bij tandplak) en ik heb daarna tot lang ook een frisse adem. Mijn tanden zagen er ook glanzender uit merkte ik op. Wel goed om op te letten is dat je na het tandenpoetsen niet spoelt met water maar de tandpasta die je nog in je mond hebt uitspuugt. Dan blijft er meer zuurstof in je mond en werkt het langer door! 

Ook zat er in de box een floss om na het gebruiken van de BlueM tandpasta de floss te gebruiken om je tanden zo extra goed schoon te houden! De tape verwijdert bacteriële tandplak, voedselresten en laat ook een frisse muntsmaak achter, wat ik erg fijn vind net als bij de tandpasta! 
Dit is denk ik mijn favoriete product aha!! Ik hou echt super veel van thee (misschien ook door mijn moeder die ook echt elke dag thee drinkt en niet zonder kan) en Yogi Tea is een heerlijk merk! Ik had eigenlijk nog nooit dit smaakje geprobeerd, totdat ik hem tegen kwam in de JouwBox. De ingrediënten in deze thee zijn: bergamot, citroen, citroengras, citrus, gember, kardemom, kruidnagel, venkel, zoethout en sinaasappel. Eigenlijk allemaal ingrediënten waar ik van hou! Laat de thee 5-7 minuten inwerken om echt de smaak goed en optimaal te proeven! 

De notenmixen van Bites We Love zijn verkrijgbaar in vijf verschillende soorten. Bij mixed nuts zitten er amandelen, cashews, hazelnoten en walnoten in. De noten zijn allemaal ongezout en ongebrand, dat zorgde ervoor dat ze beter smaakten vond ik! Ook belangrijk om te weten is dat het 100% plantaardig is! Vond het een lekkere snack voor tussendoor bij de thee! En ook handig dat het al per portie verpakt is en handig is voor onderweg of tijdens het werk in je pauze. 

Ik heb nog nooit eerder een product uitgeprobeerd in de vorm van een poeder. Deze spinazie poeder is rijk aan calcium, eiwitten, ijzer en vezels! En omdat eigenlijk meteen nadat de spinazie geoogst wordt gedroogd wordt en vermalen wordt, blijven alle voedingsstoffen in hun waarde. Je kan bijvoorbeeld de poeder door je smoothie doen, of door je soep kan natuurlijk ook! De poeder is 100% biologisch en daarom geschikt voor vegetariërs en veganisten, mocht je dat zijn aha! Ik heb het uitgeprobeerd en was eigenlijk blij verrast toen ik het door de groentesoep heb gemixt. De smaak bleef op de achtergrond en toch is het een gezonde toevoeging!

Ik hou echt super veel van limoen!! En van die frisse fruitige geuren voor de lente en zomer. Dus deze deo is daarom ook één van mijn favoriete producten! Vind ook de verpakking van deze deo een goed alternatief in plaats van plastic verpakkingen. Bij mij werkt de deo best lang en vind mijn kleding ook lekker ruiken. Ik heb best wel snel last van transpiratie, daarom gebruik ik eigenlijk bijna nooit een deo roller. Dus een stick is wel echt ideaal als oplossing. 
Dit product vond ik ook erg fijn. Ik krijg met name richting de zomer als ik niks op mijn lippen smeer last van droge lippen en dan verbranden ze vaak ook, wat natuurlijk niet fijn is. Deze stick is daarom voor mij wel echt iets wat ik vaak zal gaan gebruiken. Het heeft een SPF van 30 en ook goed om te weten is dat de stick parfum- en parabenen vrij is. Ik merkte met name dat mijn lippen erg gehydrateerd aanvoelden en smeerde om de paar uur opnieuw op. 

Dit product is door Mudmasky gemaakt, echt een super fijn merk met onder andere lekkere gezichtsmaskers en cremes en andere huidverzorgingsproducten. Het dode zeezout zit vol met mineralen uit de Dode Zee in Jordanië. Tot 10 keer zoveel mineralen zitten erin als je het vergelijkt met normaal zeezout! Vond het echt een fijn product en zeker aan te raden!! De mineralen helpen ook goed bij het herstel van de gezondheid van je lichaam, huid en spieren! Het gaf ook een beetje een spa gevoel thuis aha!

Ook een leuke verrassing in de box is het boek van Charlotte Labee. Vind het zelf altijd leuk om nieuwe recepten en weetjes op te zoeken over hoe je op een gezondere manier kan leven. Dit boek staat vol met smoothies en tips op dat gebied! Zij stelt ook dat gezonder voeding eigenlijk best onderschat wordt. Met name stelt zij dat steeds meer mensen last hebben van depressies, burnout klachten en meer. Ook zegt ze dat balans eigenlijk de sleutel naar een gezonder leven is!
Maskers mogen natuurlijk niet ontbreken in je skincare routine! Dit masker van Jacob Hoor zit ook in de box en is een voedend, hydraterend en verzorgend masker met zowel vitamine E en A. De geur vind ik lekker fris! Namelijk met rozemarijn, eucalyptus en lavendel. Alle drie echt lekker in combinatie! Leuk om te weten is dat vitamine A bijvoorbeeld helpt bij de aanmaak van collageen en dat vitamine E een natuurlijke antioxidant is. Het masker voelde lekker zacht aan op mijn huid en mijn huid voelde ook zachter aan en ook gezonder, zeker een aanrader! 

Ook super lekker is deze olijfolie!

Wear Stripes In Summer! // Inspiration!

Summer is here! For me summer has always been the most fun season to pick any outfits or to go shopping. It's just easier and more fun because you can easily wear airy and light clothes and they're more colourful too! There is something about stripes! They are modern, classic, and have a pattern that can be worn no matter the season. Of course, like when you wear any pattern, there is no natural way they need to be styled. However, pointers can always make their effect even more dramatic and compelling. Whether you are purchasing designer strips or women's wholesale clothing, here are some tried and tested tips on best styling your stripes.

The Best And Flattering Stripe
When wearing any pattern, it draws the eye and the attention to that specific item of clothing. That, however, should not deter you from buying or wearing striped items. They radiate classic chic, and they are ideal for every summer wardrobe. To make stripes more flattering, thin strips are better. More prominent stripes are bolder and carry more of a solid visual impact. Thinner stripes still embody all of the appeals of stipes without the same heavy pattern and initial focus. They are more classically understated and flattering if it is not a body part you want to draw attention to. 

Consider The Direction Of The Stripes
When shopping and looking at items from your favorite wholesale clothing store, you want to consider the direction the stripes are. Horizontal or vertical stripes can enhance or emphasize certain parts of your body. 
There is no set rule, and it does depend on the item of clothing. However, here are some pointers:
   Trousers - Vertical stripes can elongate your leg, make them appear slimmer, and create the effect of long slender legs. 
   Skirt - The direction of the stripe is not necessarily as important when it comes to skirts, yet it is still something to consider. Maxi skirts can be worn with vertical or horizontal stripes. However, for mini skirts, vertical strips work better. It is important that you consider how vertical stripes can draw attention to your hips. This can work to your advantage as vertical stripes can slim your waist, whilst horizontal can widen them and build the effect of an hourglass figure. 


Be Bold, Be Colorful
When it comes to stripes, in summer you can be a bit more bold! Incorporating color within this pattern is a surefire way to bring fun, enhance your outfit and present something 'extra' to your outfit. Opting to incorporate color does not restrict your outfit, and you can still easily achieve a classic outfit choice with ease. Historically red or blue stripes are most common in 'classic styles,' but feel free to mix this up and create an edgier effect. 

Stripes And Patterns Are On Trend
Don’t be afraid to pair your stripes with another bold pattern, such as florals or geometrics. A simple, striped t-shirt or jumper is a perfect trendy accompaniment to a boldly patterned bottom item of clothing, such as trousers or a skirt. Horizontal stripes work best as they provide a dividing line between the patterns. They offer a clear dividing line between the two clothing items. With the pairing of fun patterns, you can see what looks the most flattering for you body and what you also, very importantly, feel most comfortable in! 

Thank you very much for reading today's post!! Have a lovely day and don't forget to wear something that you feel comfortable in! 😊
