Navy And Red Workout Outfit // OOTD

Navy And Red Workout Outfit // OOTD
And it's officially 2019! Have you gotten the winter blues? I haven't gotten them just yet, but I am looking forward to the brighter days coming ahead. Working out more is New Year's resolution of many people. To be honest, I don't really believe in those resolutions. You come up with a few, postponing it and start working on them at the beginning of the new year. But as time goes on, you kind of slip away and your resolution wasn't succesful. Of course, many like to resolutions and if it works for you continue and great job! What I always like to do is write down a few goals I want to achieve, and start working on them right away. Working out and being active have always been part of my lifestyle. And when it's part of your way of living, you can easily make a routine out of it, whether daily or monthly. You have to push and motivate yourself, which can be hard, I totally get that. But in the end, you are entirely up to you. 

Try to make a very specific resolution or goal, what you prefer to call it, like for example wanting to go to a spinning class every Saturday evening. Or wanting to go to for a 30-minute walk everyday. Remember that your goals don't have to be huge. When you set those smaller specific goals, and repeat them often, you start getting used to it and create a routine without actually thinking about it. And that is eventually your key to succes! ;) This introduction was way longer than expected ahah. If you're in need of some cute workout clothes or inspiration, read further now!

Sweatpants To Keep You Warm
Working out when you're wearing cute gym wear is so much more fun! Read my previous post with fun gym wear inspiration here. It keeps you motivated and gives just that extra confidence boost, which always comes in handy. Hollister is one of my favorite clothing brands. I always buy my jeans, pj's and gym clothes there. I bought both the jumper and the sweatpants in their sale online. They didn't match it as a set, but I thought the jumper would look good in combination with the pants. The pants fit like tights, with fleece inside, so it's more for the winter. If you're planning on buying them I would pick at least one size bigger, because they are really small. I'm wearing a size m, and usually I have a size s.

Sweatshirt To Complete The Outfit
The jumper has a bit of red around the Hollister logo, which makes it look nice with the red sweatpants. It's a cropped fit, and I bought it because the sweatpants are highwaisted. In summer you can wear the jumper with a pair of shorts on a chilly evening. But for now, a bare stomach is a bit too cold haha. Navy is also an easy color, which you can combine with almost anything. You can even wear this jumper if you're planning to have a cozy day at home with a cup of tea and Netflix. 

Thank you very much for reading today's post! 
What is your go to color to wear to the gym? 

Have a lovely day,

Capturing Moments One Photo At A Time

Photobook cute gift idea
Ik hoop dat je een fijne kerst hebt gehad! De tijd vliegt zeg, het is gewoon alweer 2019! Om eerlijk te zijn ben ik na de feestdagen altijd moe, en heb ik zin om lekker niks te doen en met een beker warme chocomel op de bank te liggen met mijn favorite serie. Heb jij dat ook? Eten rond de feestdagen is er altijd wel genoeg haha. Vandaag wil ik iets super tofs met je delen, en ben benieuwd in de reacties wat je er van vindt. Ik vind het altijd super leuk om foto's te maken. Het liefst wil een een spiegelreflex kopen, want die maken net weer wat betere foto's dan een mobiel. Foto's zijn altijd leuk om later op terug te kijken. Eigenlijk kun je je Instagram zien als een online fotoboek. Als je door de foto's scrolt, krijg ik altijd een bepaald gevoel bij een bepaalde periode. Een foto zegt, het klinkt misschien cliché, meer dan duizend woorden. Een fotoboek is daarom het perfect cadeau, lees gauw verder! 
Photobook cute gift ideaHet leek mij een cool idee om mijn Instagram foto's te laten afrdukken in een fotoboek. Ik heb daar eigenlijk nooit bij stil gestaan dat je dat ook kon doen! Is net weer eens iets anders dan standaard familie of vakantiefoto's. Het fotoalbum is de perfecte webshop als jij ook een fotografieliefhebber bent! Je kunt er bijvoorbeeld wanddecoraties, gepersonaliseerde tijdschriften en natuurlijk fotoalbums bestellen in allerlei kleuren, soorten en maten. Er zit altijd wel iets bij wat jij leuk vindt en wat bij je past.

Het fotoboek wat ik heb uitgekozen is wit en heeft een harde kaft. Je krijgt losse fotoafdrukken bij het boek toegestuurd, die je dan zelf aan het elkaar kunt koppelen door middle van een paar schroeven, heel handig! Je kunt, als je van gedachte veranderd ook de volgorde nog veranderen. Ik vind de kwaliteit van de foto's duidelijk en mooi, vooral omdat ik een melding kreeg dat de foto's niet erg scherp waren en daardoor iets minder duidelijk konden zijn. Desondanks zijn ze erg mooi geworden en heb ik er niks van gemerkt. Ik vind dat de hoeveelheid afdrukken die je krijgt zeker in verhouding staat met de prijs. 
Photobook cute gift ideaDit fotoalbum kwam eigenlijk precies op het goede moment. Dit jaar kan ik met dit album mooi afsluiten, en terugkijken op alle momenten van 2018. Ook al was dit niet een van mijn beste jaren, er zijn ook zeker veel goede dingen gebeurd die je niet moet vergeten haha. Op naar 2019, de start van een nieuw jaar met nieuwe kansen. Op de laatste pagina heb ik 2 van mijn favoriete quotes uitgekozen om het boek mee af te sluiten. Eentje gaat erover dat iedereen in zijn leven zijn eigen pad volgt, en alles gebeurd wanneer jij er klaar voor bent. (dat denk ik tenminste;) De andere quote gaat over zelfvertrouwen, en dat uiteindelijk jouw mening het belangrijkste is en niemand je van de wijs moet brengen. 

Leuk dat je mijn blog post gelezen hebt! Ik hoop dat jij nu ook zin hebt om lekker te gaan fotografereren zodat je daarna een tof fotoalbum kunt creeren! En ik wens je een Happy New Year!! 

Liefs, 

Isabella❤

A Cozy & Stylish Christmas Gift Idea For Him

Last minute Christmas shopping gift ideas

It's almost Christmas!! Time has flown by this year, and I kind of have to admit that this year hasn't been one of my best years. I'm super ready for 2019 to start, with new chances and building new memories using all the life lessons I learned so far. But first Christmas of course! I always love buying gifts for my family and friends. Even if they're small, it's the gesture of appreciation that matters most. (Although big gifts are always welcome;) Maybe you're just like me and always end up doing your Christmas shopping the day before. It's actually not that big of a deal, because most things are on sale by then. If you're looking to buy a last minute gift for your boyfriend, brother or father, read further now for something comfy he'll love!

For women,  it's a lot easier to buy a gift. From lipsticks to spa days, to cute necklaces and heels. There's a lot you can buy that will be cute to give and she'll be happy to receive. For men, it's a bit different. I think in general, men are not that picky as women when it comes to gifts. But, they do like cute things just as much! I came across this website where they have lots of nice clothes and gift boxes for men. You can find there nice shirts, socks, boxers and much more. 
Last minute Christmas shopping gift ideas
I received a gift box with 4 pairs of Tommy Hilfiger socks. The socks are in cute and colorful patterns, and I think perfect for any guy during Winter to stay warm. The socks are knie length and the stripes are my favorite pattern haha. I think I would actually even wear them when I'm having a lazy day at home haha. Tommy Hilfiger is quite expensive, but the quality is really good. I can remember one time I bought socks at the Primark, and after washing them once, they were a size too small. Sometimes that happens with cheaper brands, not all of them though. Socks at H&M are comfortable and from good quality too. For guys and men it's cute to wear the Tommy socks even in combination with a black tie or any suit for the festive days. It kind of adds a pop of color to it.

Thank you for reading today's post! I hope you enjoyed it. 
Question time - What is your go-to gift for any guy to give for Christmas? 

Have a lovely day,

Toffe Muurdecoratie Voor In Je Kamer


Tegenwoordig is het super makkelijk om het vliegtuig te pakken. Voor je het weet zit je in Rome aan een stuk pizza, of ben je misschien wel in Bali aan het genieten van zon, zee en strand. Er zijn nog zoveel steden die ik zou willen bezoeken, van San Fransisco, tot Vancouver to Hong Kong. Het liefst zou ik na mijn studie een wereldreis maken van een jaar, hoe cool is dat?! Als je net zo'n reisliefhebber bent als ik, dan kan je dat natuurlijk laten terugkomen in je interieur of met leuke decoraties in je woon - en slaapkamer. Lees gauw verder hoe jij je muren kunt opvrolijken! 
Ik heb toevallig gisteren gehoord dat ik een kamer heb in Den Haag, super fijn! Het leukste vind ik altijd het zoeken naar leuke spulletjes en decoraties, het perfecte excuus om te gaan winkelen. Het handigste vind ik altijd dat je eerst een kamer moet zien, de grootte etc. en dan goed kan inschatten wat voor look of vibe je aan je kamer wil geven. Omdat mijn kamer 21m2 is, past er best wel een groot schilderij of foto op canvas aan de muur. 
Omdat ik zoveel van reizen houd leek het mij een tof idee om een wereldkaart in mijn nieuwe kamer te hangen. In de webshop werelkaarten.nl heb je super veel keuze aan kaarten, van stadskaarten, tot landkaarten van Nederland of België en in verschillende thema's. Dus als jij liever een kaart wil voor een kinderkamer, bijvoorbeeld voor je nichtje of neefje, dan kan je die ook zeker vinden! Wat fijn is is dat de kaarten in veel verschillende formaten verkrijgbaar zijn, zo zit er altijd wel iets tussen wat bij jouw kamer past. En je kan kiezen uit veel verschillende soorten materialen, meer dan 90 verschillende kaarten, bijvoorbeeld canvas of plexiglas of zelfs een muursticker.

Bedankt voor het lezen van mijn blog post! Ik hoop dat je net zoveel zin hebt om een nieuwe reis te plannen net zoals ik! Om dat reisgevoel vast te houden zijn wereldkaarten de perfecte decoratie voor je kamer. 

Liefs, 

Isabella ❤

Life Isn't Perfect But Your Hair Can Be

cute and stylish lace front wigs
When your hair looks good, you instantly feel a lot better. I always love going to the hairdresser and getting a fresh haircut. I usually go for the same hairstyle, because I know it suits me. There is an easier solution instead of going to the hairdresser. Wigs have become really popular under celebrities like Kim Kardashian and many more. You buy a wig that you like and if you want to adjust things you can trim the wig yourself. Read further now for some cute and stylish wigs!

Short Hair Wigs
There are many sorts of wigs. They come in almost any color, length and texture. Because my hair is short, this wig above would look very cute. It has long bangs in the front and the back is a little bit shorter. I love the deep dark brown shade because it looks really natural and has a feminine touch to it. Wigs are super handy because you can basically transform your look in a second, going from short to long, or from brown to blond. It's especially cool if you have a special occasion to attend, like a concert or dinner. Within a click, you can see all the other wigs in the webshop. 
cute and stylish lace front wigs
This is another wig that's really cute! As you can see I love the dark brown/black wigs. Shorter hair is just easier to maintain and this bob styled wig can look good on anyone. I never wore a wig yet, but after seeing all the different styles I really want to try it out. Especially because it's so easy and quick to choose a different style. There are different kinds of wigs, and this is a lace front wig which you can wear every day to work or for a night out.

Thank you very much for reading today's post! 
Question time - Have you ever tried a wig before?

Have a lovely day,

Cute Christmas Party Dresses

In less than a month it's already Christmas, time flies!! Now is the right time to start looking for some cute outfits to wear during a party, on Christmas day or even for NY's Eve. Plus size women has have become more and more the normal standard of beauty. For me, beauty comes in any size. We shouldn't discriminate someone just by how they look, that's just crazy right?! Being yourself is the prettiest thing you can be, and just a little reminder, you should never change that. Shopping is super fun during the Christmas period. That's why I've listed a few cute party dresses below to be the sparkle in the room! Get comfy and read further now!

Rosegal is an online webshop with great deals everyday, They have many dresses, swim wear and even cute decorations for in your home. If you want to make your house or dorm room Christmas ready, than you can also find many Christmas accesories. 
Cute Christmas Party Dresses
A Two-Piece Dress
Two-piece dresses are my favorite. It looks like you're wearing a skirt and a top, but that's not the case haha. This set is really nice for an evening out in town or to a party. The lace detailing looks very romantic and the skirt is also not too short. Because in winter it's quite cold, you can combine the look with a warm and fluffy teddy coat and a pair of heels and maybe to add that extra color, a red clutch. The color of the dress is in off-white, so not completely white, which is nice because in winter people in general look a bit more pale. Overall, a perfect dress for any festive occasion! See more details of all the plus-size dresses in this category in the webshop. 

Cute Christmas Party Dresses
Bodycon Dress
Staying in the white tones for Christmas, this dress is also really cute! It's a bit more tight fitting, and the belt makes your curves look great. The material is soft and stretchy and the open shoulder detailing makes the look complete. You can combine the dress with orange, taupe or maybe red and with a gold statement necklace or bracelet. A red lip also can't be forgotten. If you're not really a fan of the white shade, you can also get it in blue, red and black. 

Thank you very much for reading today's post! 
Question time - What is your favorite dress to wear this Christmas?

Have a lovely day,

Winter Escape // Fashion Packing Essentials You Can't Forgot

Fashion Packing Essentials You Can't Forgot
I have to be honest, I'm just not a very big fan of Winter. The cold, dark and rainy days are not for me haha. I do love the period around Christmas with all the pretty lights and decorations, getting you really into that festive mood. Maybe you are just like me and are more a Spring and Summer kind of person and want to escape from the cold for a few days. I've been thinking about a few perfect summer proof destinations. Curacao, Miami, Brisbane, Cape Verde and many more. With planning a trip also comes the packing part, my favorite one!! Like every woman, I always bring too many things and only end up wearing half of it. Then returning with two suitcases because I bought new clothes there.. Read further now for some cute summer fashion essentials you can't forget to bring on your next trip! 

Zaful is an online fashion site with all kinds of clothes, from cute accesories, to swimwear, to activewear and many more. It's a great webshop if you're looking for both affordable and quality clothes. As a student, that's a number one priority. 
Winter Escape // Fashion Packing Essentials You Can't Forgot

Light Blue Dresses
Isn't light blue such a cute color?! It's a great shade for both summer and winter and adds a pop of color to your outfit. As you're planning on going to a tropical destination, dresses are must bring. They come in all kinds of patterns and there will be one you like for sure. 
Fashion Packing Essentials You Can't Forgot
I came across this dress and think it's super cute. You can never go wrong with wrap dresses. The bows on the dress add that extra sparkle to it. With a big sunhat, a pair of white slipper and maybe a bracelet or a pair of earrings and you're ready to head of to your tropical island. You can even wear a bikini under it, as the material is quite light, great for the beach too. For more blue dress, you can always visit the webshop. 
Fashion Packing Essentials You Can't Forgot
Coats For Rainy Days
Just in case the weather changes it's always a good idea to bring clothes for the rain. In tropical places, the rain usually comes out of nowhere and a lot at once. Rain coats are your best friend at this time haha. This yellow windbreaker jacket is great, it's light and it's still a bight and happy color. It has two front pockets and is, of course waterproof. With the loose fit you can easily wear a sweater or hoodie under it. 

Thank you very much for reading today's post! I hope you enjoyed it!
