Divatress | Wigs are the new trend for Spring

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Hey everyone,

It's already half of March! I can't believe how fast time goes! Before you know it, it's summer. This is actually the first week that the sun is shining really bright and there are so many pretty pastel colored flowers everyone. It makes me so happy to see that Spring is finally here and the dark and cold days are over. Today I would love to share a new and cool beauty trend that is very famous among celebrities like Selena Gomez or Taylor Swift. Read further now to get to know this secret trend! 

Divatress | Wigs are the new trend for Spring
SOURCE
The trend I'm talking about are wigs. I've just discovered the hair secret behind all the beautiful haircuts and styles celebrities have. I always wondered how they always managed to look so good and now I know why. Wigs are in almost every color, haircut, in dip dye and many more styles. Maybe for this spring it would be fun to try something different, like a pop of color or a sleek haircut. I'm not sure but there's plenty of options. 

Divatress is a leading e-commerce company selling very cool and trendy wigs online. They offer you fast delivery and hope to give customers an enjoyable shopping experience. Divatress has more than a thousand black hair care products, from Fox Collection to Batik and many more. Besides hair care products the shop also has a big range of makeup products. It doesn't matter if you're a student, a fashionista or a professional stylist, Divatress is the shop for everybody. They believe that their succes is about the commitment to black hair care and surpassing your expectations for a even better shopping experience. As the name says it, Divatress sees every woman as a trough diva.

Lace front wigs
There are many different types of wigs, but I personally love lace front wigs. These wigs make it look like it's your own natural hairline and you absolutely can't see the difference! For coming spring I'm really excited to try out these two haircuts. As most girls, pink is my favorite color so this pink dip dye hairstyle is perfect. It the lace front wig Rosalie and the longs bangs are just so pretty! The other style I would like to try is a little bit more conservative. It's shoulder length and the light brown is so cute! This wig is called the lace front edge wig Gianna

Why you should try a wig
-Wigs are very handy and convenient. We are all so busy and caught up in our hectic lifestyles that a wig comes just at the right time. It can save a lot of time and you don't need to worry about your hair. You can just walk out of the door feeling effortlessly beautiful. 
-The fun thing with wigs is that you can change your hairstyle as many times as you want. Whereas with a real haircut you often have to grow it out or can only do simple changes. Maybe you've always wanted to have long hair, it's possible in just a few seconds. When you feel bored and want to try a different look it's not a problem. 
-Bad hair days are old fashioned. Why have a bad hair day when you can wear a wig? Most of the time I have a bad hair day the second day after I washed my hair. I often just put it in a quick ponytail but I never thought about wearing a wig. 

Divatress | Wigs are the new trend for Spring


Overall, I'm very happy I discovered this beauty trick and this store. At first I thought wigs looked a little bit fake but that is definitely not the case. They look really natural and fashionable and are perfect. Diverts is the place to be for every glam girl. I believe when a girl's hair looks good it boosts here confidence! 

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

5 Reasons Why I'm Excited For Summer And You Should Be Too

Hey everyone,

I can't believe it's already March! It's still pretty cold here in Holland and I'm definitely looking forward to the warmer and sunnier days. My wardrobe is in transition mode right now and I've discovered that buying the basics first and than the accessories is the best way to start the new season fresh and fruity. Although it's technically not even Spring yet(oops) I can't help but think about all the exciting things about summer. From bonfires, to walking on the beach to swimming at night. Let's get started! 

5 Reasons I'm Excited For Summer And You Should Be Too
SOURCE
  1. GETTING MY FIRST CAR. This summer I'm getting my first car! I have my drivers license for about a year now and I can't wait to pick up some friends and go on a road trip in my town all by myself. Having a car makes you feel like a real adult and the best thing is that you can go somewhere without asking your parents permission to borrow their car or having to take the bus. The car will be a Fiat 500 is dark blue and with a open roof. It's such an adorable and cute city car! 
  2. FLIPFLOPS AND DRESSES. The cool thing about summer is, is that you can wear your favorite summer dress everyday. I'm so excited about wearing beachy clothes and just being able to walk out of the door without wearing that thick winter jacket.  Even a pair of ripped jeans with a cute top is enough for a cute outfit. I think my go to summer must have is going to be lace bralettes. I have one in blue and one in white lace from Hollister and they fit really well and are perfect for sunny and warm days under a shirt or with a tank top. 
  3. FREEDOM. Summer basically means no homework, no stress and no responsibilities. It's the time of the year to really enjoy and relax and do things you didn't have time for the whole year. Like I'm planning on trying a couple of yummy recipes this summer and maybe a DIY project as well. Hanging out with friends and relaxing is what summer is all about! 
  4. THE BEACH. There is no summer without the beach. It's the place to be to get a tan, play volleyball, go windsurfing or drink a cocktail. Me and my family live close to the beach so it's really easy to go for a walk or a swim. Because my parents woke a lot and are very busy I don't really come there that much anymore. But this summer when the weather gets warm I'm going to try to enjoy it and go to beach. My favorite sport is definitely windsurfing. A few years ago I had my first windsurf lesson in Rome and it was so cool and fun. Now very year when I go to the beach or I go on holiday I need to go windsurfing. 
  5. MORE BLOGGING. Summer is the coolest season to pick up your camera and take pictures of everything around you. When I have more time this summer I would love to get more outfit posts up on the blog and summer related posts like a natural makeup look or summer must haves. Blogging can be a full time job, so this summer I'm going to use all the time I have because it's over in a blink.
Thank you so much for reading today's post!

Awesome Beauty Find // Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask

Hey everyone,

For a while I've been wanting to try the Neutrogena light therapy mask. Over the last few months my skin has gotten worse and I think it's a combination of stress and just hormones that causes the breakouts on my face. It's actually a friend of mine that recommend this product because she has really bad skin problems and uses the mask and the difference was really noticeable after a few times. Unfortunately she lives to far away to try it out, so that's why it's on top of my wishlist! 

Awesome Beauty Find // Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask
SOURCE
Neutrogena is a skincare brand that's very popular and the number one recommended by dermatologists. It's comparable to the Dermalogica, another skincare brand that has good products as well. From cleansers to suncare to cosmetics, Neutrogena has it all. 

Let's get to know more about the beauty find now. The mask is a new and revolutionizing way to treat acne at home without having to spend hundreds of dollars for every treatment. Dermatologists have used light therapy for a really long time, and now you can do the treatment where you want. The mask protects the power of light and helps to get rid of your acne that can vary from mild to a moderate acne. At first when I read about the mask I was a little bit afraid that using it too much would damage your skin, but that's definitely not the case. The actually recommend to use the mask everyday, in combination with a cleansing product to get a healthier and clearer skin. It's a good product to add to your skincare routine. It's like you light your way to clearer skin! 



Awesome Beauty Find // Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask
SOURCE
On the website of Neutrogena they published a 12-week clinical study to show you if the mask really helps. I didn't expect the results to be so high. In short, the study shows that the more time people used the mask, the more their skin improved. Almost all participants had fewer breakouts and smoother skin and felt their skin was smoother. For the exact percentages and details about the study you can visit the website of Neutrogena. What's very cool about the design is that while wearing it, it's still possible to browse on your phone, or watch your favorite tv show in bed. My guess was that you have to wear the mask for about an hour a day, but it's only ten minutes. It's the perfect amount of time and fits perfectly into our already so busy lifestyles. So after you washed your face, you slip on your pink device and after watching your tv show your skin has already improved. 

Some dermatologists say that it's still important to not forget about other less cool looking skincare products, like a toner or a soft cleanser. It's recommended to use an oil-free moisturizer after you've used the mask. 

I can't wait to try the mask because I've heard so many good stories about it. Although I don't have really bad acne, it can still improve your skin and lessens the breakouts. The beauty product is available at almost every beauty shop online for $35. Thank you very much for reading today's post!

It's a snuggle up kinda day // Cozy Night In Ideas

Hey everyone,

Today is one of those days where I just want to do nothing. I'm also feeling quite sick and that's why a relaxing day at home just the perfect way to get better. It's half February and the sun is getting brighter, days are getting longer and Spring is coming! It's still cold in the Netherlands and I can't wait to give my wardrobe a complete makeover for Spring. Bringing back all the adorable pastel shades and summer dresses. But let's just enjoy today and get cozy and comfy with these cozy night in ideas. 

It's a snuggle up kinda day // Cozy Night In Ideas


1. Cozy blankets - The only thing you want to do when you're sick or when coming home from a busy day at school, is grabbing your favorite blanket. I bought my blanket last year at the online store called Laura Ashley. It's an English home decoration brand and their style is very classic. 
2. Face mask - What would a cozy night in be without taking care of your skin?! The first thing I always do when I come home is taking my makeup of and when I do have the time I try to make a DIY face mask or I just buy one in the local drugstore. There are so many different masks and ingredients that you can really choose one that's right for your skin. From detoxing to peelings, it's all possible. 
3. Pajamas - When people ask me 'what is your current obsession?' my answer would definitely be collecting pjs. I always change into my pajamas when I'm at home. It sets my brain into the relaxing mode and it's just way more comfortable than wearing skinny jeans all day. Hollister has very cute loungewear right now, and it's my go to brand to score cute undies and bralettes as well. 
4. A good book - Although I don't really like to read books, this book was really fun and is top recommend on Amazon and Goodreads. You can cuddle up in a blanket with the book called A Dog's Perspective from Bruce Cameron and get away from your own busy world for a moment. In short, the book tells the charming story of a dog searching for his purpose in life. 
5. Slippers - Cold feet are not part of a cozy night in. Slippers don't have to be expensive. Usually I buy some slipper socks at my local drugstore from around one euros. But on top of my wishlist are still the Ugg slippers. They are so comfortable and warm and you can also use them outside. The ones I'm wearing right now are I think owl ones and they keep my feet warm and they are cute too!

Thank you so much for reading today's post! Let's have that one day where you completely relax and avoid the winter blues.

Pink Makeup To Brighten Up Your Day

Hey everyone,

It's snowing again today! Snow makes everything look so much prettier and it makes me want to snuggle up inside and drink hot chocolate with my favorite cookies. Even though I really like snowy and cold weather, I'm also looking forward to Spring. All those beautiful flowers, green grass and cute dresses are coming soon. Last week I went out on a hunt for some pink makeup items. Soft pink reminds me of Spring and is also very trendy at the moment and why not give a try. Read further for some pink makeup finds to brighten up your day!

MAKEUP REVOLUTION AMAZING LIPGLOSS

MAKEUP REVOLUTION AMAZING LIPGLOSS 
My first pink find is this lipgloss from the makeup brand called Makeup Revolution. It's in the shade natural pink and leaves just the perfect amount of color. I love that it's not really sticky, but it feels a little bit heavy on your lips. The lipgloss does moisturize your lips well and usually lasts around two hours. It can be worn alone or on top other lipsticks to perfect your look. This lipgloss is not very special, in comparison to other glosses I've tried. But there's nothing wrong with it if you don't want to spend too much it's still good quality. €2,- 

MAKEUP REVOLUTION AMAZING LIPGLOSS


ETOS COLOR CARE LIPSTICK
Etos is a Dutch drugstore brand and has had a big makeover recently. Etos has introduced new product lines and a completely different and more modern look. When I walked into the store I was immediately drawn to the Etos color care lipstick collection. They are in so many colors and in almost every nude shade you can think of, from dark to fair. I ended up choosing the Gimme Gimme shade which is a very soft pink/nude shade. When you put it on it feels very soft and natural. The color is not very bright, it's just perfect and it has a little bit of glitter as well. I really like this lipstick and I'm definitely going to try the other shade from this collection soon! €4,-

ETOS COLOR CARE LIPSTICK


ETOS SOFT PINK NAIL POLISH
This is another budget find from the Etos makeup collection. Nail polish is for most women just as much as an addiction as shoes or clothes. The new range of Etos has launched 72 new shades, plus 12 top coats and a protection base coat. I choose the color No History and it's so cute and adorable! It looks like a baby pink and with only two layers it looks really good. Often I like to add on top of the nail polish a top coat or a white shade to make it last longer. When I apply a top coat it stays for around 3 to 4 days. Whenever I need another nail polish this brand always has the perfect shade for me. €2,-

ETOS SOFT PINK NAIL POLISH
Thank you so much for reading today's post! I hope you're just as much looking forward to Spring as I am!

Essential Travel Items Every Girl Needs

Hey everyone,

It's a snowy and cold day today in Holland. If you're just like me, than you're already looking forward to your next trip this summer. This summer I'm going to a dream island I've always wanted to go to. It's going to be a family trip to Palau, a beautiful place in the north of Sardinia in Italy. Although my trip is still months away, maybe yours is very soon. It's never too early to start thinking about what to pack in your suitcase. To help you a little bit further I've created a list with Essential Travel Items every Girls Needs to bring with her. Get cozy and let's get started!
Essential Travel Items Every Girl Needs and a must have packing list for your next trip!


1. POWERBANK - They come in so many different patterns and colors that there will always be one you like. When traveling, a power bank is very handy so you don't need to worry that your battery dies any moment. Unicorn items are very trendy right now, and this power bank is so cute!

2. MOISTURIZER Dermalogica is one of my favorite skincare brands. They have a line especially designed for young adults called Clear Start. The moisturizer that I use daily is definitely an essential when traveling. It's called the Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer with spf15. To keep your skin young, even in the winter I choose a skincare product with at least spf15 just to protect my skin. Your skin can get quite dry, and it's great to have a product that takes care of your skin. You can even apply the moisturizer as a makeup base. I've also written a review about the moisturizer which you can read here.

3. ORGANIZING BAG - This is a simple bag-all organizer which you can bring easily with you on your next trip. It's a bikini organizing bag made from canvas. The founder and stylist Jennifer Jansch had a desire to live more sustainable so she launched bag-all. The bags are designed to be used and reused and are not only gift bags. You can also use them to put basic items in like your bikini, or socks.

Essential Travel Items Every Girl Needs4. BACKPACK - Of course for all your travel essentials a backpack is the number one priority. Marc Jacobs has the perfect backpack to put your essentials in. It's a mini biker nylon backpack in grey. They also have it in dark blue and black, depending what look you love better. The two front zip pockets are great to store smaller items in, also with a two zip closure. It's a backpack more for weekend trips, for longer stays Marc Jacobs has backpacks that are a little bit larger than this one.


5. JOURNAL - Years later the funnest thing to do is looking back on your trip and bringing all the memories alive again. You can write all your thoughts, activities, lists, quotes, pictures and so many more things in your journal. It's a creative outlet and perfect to look back on. On Not On The High Street you can personalize your own journal to make it even more special. 

6. LUGGAGE TAG - When you want to bring a suitcase with you for longer stays, a luggage tag is inevitable. Asos always has so many fun gifts and accessories. This luggage tag is from the stationary brand called Paperchase in the shape of a llama.

Essential Travel Items Every Girl Needs

7. HEADPHONES - Headphones are basically my second home, no really. When I go to bed I wear my headphones to listen to some music and I keep up with my favorite Youtubers( KKANDBABYJ and SACCONEJOLY). But also during the day they are really handy if you want to study and block out the noises around you. This pair of headphones is from Urbanears. I have one at home in purple also from this brand and they are very comfortable and easy to bring with you when traveling. It's in the color lime and has a modern and minimal look. 


8. HAND CREAM - Just as taking care of you face is important, your hands can get very dry as well. A hand cream is the solution for smooth and silky hands, even when traveling. I'm loving the brand Lush right now. They have a hand cream called helping hands, with ingredients such as a calming chamomile and cocoa butter cream. The hand cream is soft pink and is made only of natural ingredients. 


Essential Travel Items Every Girl Needs



























9. BOOK - Sometimes you need a little break from all the social media and the internet. Reading is perfect to relax and think about nothing else but your book. The famous vlogger Sierra Furtado has written a called Life Uploaded. She explores what is means to redefine happiness and stay trough to your self when you are in the spotlight. I really enjoyed reading the book, in case you still need a fun book to put on your summer reading list this is definitely a recommendation!

La la land | A Romantic & Cheerful Movie

Hey everyone,

Since having watched Fifty Shades of Grey last year, La la land is now my favorite movie of all time. After I had seen the movie trailer I really was looking forward to seeing the whole movie. It's a feel good movie, kind of like a musical with a lot of songs and a romantic touch to it. I love Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, they are great actors and have a special on screen chemistry together. I've never seen them play such a good role as in this movie. 

LA LA LAND MOVIE REVIEW

la la land movie review and reasons why you'll love watching it


The romantic musical comedy-drama is written and directed by Damien Chazelle. The screenplay was written in 2010 but there wasn't a studio who wanted to finance the production. After the success of Whiplash, the screenplay was picked up by Summit Entertainment. On Augustus 31st La la land premiered at the Venice Film Festival and the movie has now earned 179 million worldwide. 
WHAT IS THE MOVIE ABOUT? 
The movie starts with a scene where cars are stuck in traffic in LA. Than all the drivers start to sing 'Another Day of Sun' together. They jump on cars, actors are free styling and it's just a happy song about hope.Than we meet the Sebastian
(Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma stone) Sebastian is a pianist and Mia is an actress in the movie. They can't get along very well but start to care for each other more and more in the end. Next you have a scene where Mia and Sebastian are walking over the Hollywood Hills during sunset. It's a beautiful location and it's also the first important scene. Mia and Sebastian start to see how much they are actually alike. Mia doesn't want to go to auditions anymore because it's not worth it. Sebastian has a dream vision of Jazz and he doesn't want to play music anymore for tourists. They both want to have a fresh start and follow their dreams. Stone and Gosling are attracted to each other and they sing a song about that they're not a couple and that their time is wasted. Than they also start dancing together to beautiful song and the choreography was really perfect. It's amazing to see how these two actors dance and sing, even though they aren't performers in real life. These to actors really made the movie a succes. The meaning behind the movie is that it's very easy to get pushed away to another direction than to your dream. Sometimes the only thing to get back on the right path towards your dream is another person. 

La la land shows that you should never stop following your dreams. Often we get caught up in our busy lives and we have to stop and think about how we actually want to live further. It's a magical movie, showing the era of Classic Hollywood. The dreams we dream of achieving are the ones that keep us dancing and alive. 

QUOTES
Mia: [singing] Here’s to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem. Here’s to the hearts that ache. Here’s to the mess we make. She captured feeling, sky with no ceiling, the sunset inside with rain. Here’s to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem. Here’s to the hearts that ache. Here’s to the mess we make.

Mia: It's pretty strange that we keep running into one another. 

Sebastian: Maybe it means something.

Mia: I doubt it.

Sebastian: Yeah, I didn't think so.

Mia and Sebastian are realizing that they keep running in to each other and start to think if it means something. Mia doesn't agree but you know they have a chemistry together. 


la la land movie review and reasons why you'll love watching it


Bill: You're fired.
Sebastian: It's Christmas.
Bill: Yeah, I see the decorations. Good luck in the new year.
Sebastian gets the news from his boss that he's fired. Although losing your job is never fun, it can make him think about his future and his dreams more.

OPINION
Maybe you've already noticed but I've really fallen in love with the movie! It's a magical movie and the scenes are all played so well. I really love all the songs, and I'm now trying to play them on the piano. The dances where choreographed my Mandy Moore, a choreographer know for So You Think You Can Dance. You can see that the dances are really well performed and it suits the songs perfectly. 

Thank you so much for reading today's post!
