Burgundy Inspired OOTD

Hey everyone,

Hollister is one of my favorite clothing brands right now. They always have great deals online and I love the classic and beach inspired style. Today's outfit of the day is inspired by the color burgundy. I've always really liked burgundy, it's like a mix between the dark red and dark brown. It's a color that you can wear the whole year around with the right accessories.

HOLLISTER JEGGINGS
I looked online and saw this pair of jeans in burgundy for just 15 euros and I immediately bought them. The jeans are Hollister jeggings and with a lot of stretch which make them very comfortable to wear. The material is also very soft and made from good quality.

HOLLISTER PATTERNED SHIRT
I also wanted to have something in combination to wear with the jeans, so I found this patterned shirt and it's also from Hollister. It's with a hint of burgundy as well and fits perfectly on top of the jeans. The sleeves are ruffled at the bottom and elastic. The shirt was 11 euros online. 

CLARKS SHOES
Because it's still winter and the cold days aren't over yet I choose to wear my Clarks in combination with my outfit. It adds a bit of a wintery touch to it and they are very comfortable as well. For me clothes and shoes have to be cute but most importantly you have to feel good in what you wear.

WHITE ICE WATCH
Watches are a great accessory and a must have item to never be late. For a long time I've always worn watches from the Italian jewelry brand called Furla but now I thought it was time for something different. The white reminds me of a Spring color and and looks great with the patterned shirt. 

I hope you enjoyed reading today's ootd!

Why Wigs are a Must Have Beauty Accessory

Hey everyone,

Recently I discovered the hair secret of many celebrities on the red carpet. It's a beauty trick that's very smart and if you do it in the right way is unnoticeable and very natural looking. The trick I'm talking about is wigs. I sometimes wondered how Kylie Jenner could change from a short bob to long green hair in just one day. It's not just Kylie that uses wigs, many other people use wigs as well. Keira Knightley has coped with hair loss and a wig was the perfect way to cover that up. Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande have used wigs for a long time now. Lady Gaga is famous for her brightly colored hair looks and Ariana Grande uses a wig for some extra volume to make her hair look perfect. 


hairplusbase hair tools wigs

Hairplusbase is a leading professional hair products manufacturer. They offer top quality products like for example full lace wigs, clip in hair extensions, tape in hair extensions and many more. Their goal is to empower people from all over the world to buy and sell online. No matter where you live, Hairplusbase can be right at your doorstep. 

On Hairplusbase full lace wigs are the most popular products. Not only celebrities but also models from all over the world have used these wigs. They look stylish, natural and suit your style. The mesh under the wig makes sure that your hair can still breathe and that your wigs is comfortable. If you want to go for easy, than this kind of wig is the right choice.  


Why Wigs are a Must Have Beauty Accessory

If you're not ready to wear a wig than tape in hair extensions are a great solution. They are available in any size, color and length. There are extensions for every hair type and if you feel like having long hair for a day, you just clip them in your hair. If I had to choose hair extensions, I would choose ombré extensions. Blue extensions would be very cool too and it's fun to change it up once in a while. For me it would be a good solution because I don't want to diy my hair yet. 


Why wigs are a must have beauty accesory

Lace front are also popular under celebrities. It's a great option if you want to have a wig that imitates your natural hairline and makes your hair fuller. They are less expensive than full lace wigs. Hairplusbase has over 2000 different wigs in this category so you will always find one that you like. 


Why Wigs are a Must Have Beauty Accessory


Wigs are now a must have beauty accessory and can transform your look quickly. They make it easy to keep up with the latest hair trends and styles. I definitely understand that people use wigs, because dying your hair to many times can make the quality of your hair worse.

After discovering that wigs are really a great tool, I know have to say I'm a fan of them. Before I thought it was only for people who were ill but that's further away from the truth. They are for everybody and how your hair looks is important for how you want to look and which style you want to go for. Combining the right hairstyle with the right clothes can make you look at your best! 

I hope you enjoyed reading today's post!

My First Trip to London + budget tips

Hey everyone,

It's already a week ago that I flew to London. I can remember the months I've waited for my first trip ever to London. I've always really liked England and all the beautiful buildings, shops and the English language. The people are really nice and they helped us with tickets and directions. I have really fallen in love with this city. Read further for some fun things to do in London and budget tips! Let's get right to it! 

FIRST DAY SCHEDULE
Friday: Last Friday me and my family packed our bags and went to Schiphol Airport to take a flight to London Heathrow Airport. I flew with British Airways and was really surprised by how friendly the staff was. The plane was also very big and we even got something to eat and drink. After a short 45 minute flight we arrived at Heathrow. It's really exciting to actually be in the city you've dreamed of for so long! We took the Heathrow express to Paddington Station and that took us only about 15 minutes. Paddington is a very nice neighborhood and the buildings are so pretty as well. I love older looking buildings and it really gives the place a different atmosphere. The red busses are so cool and we took one to go to Aldwych where our hotel the Waldorf Hilton was. We took line 23 that goes from Paddington to Aldwych via Oxford street and Regent street. It was the perfect bus for a some sightseeing and seeing all the shops like Harrods, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and many more. The hotel was really nice and there was a man, a typical English man opening the hotel door every time. 


My First Trip to London + budget tips


As I'm always hungry we went for lunch to Covent Garden. Covent Garden is a really nice place with all kinds of unique shops and delicious small restaurants. There is always a performance going on and you are never bored. I can't remember the name of the restaurant where we ate. But I'm sure you'll find a yummy restaurant. I ordered bread with tomato soup and bacon. It was really good and also healthy. What I noticed was that really very restaurant had healthy choices. After a good lunch we walked to our hotel to see if the room was ready. We rested for a little bit and went to the Tesco Express to collect a few croissants, yoghurt and magazines. In the evening we went to the musical in the Novello Theatre called Mamma Mia. The musical was so fun and it really makes you happy! At the end the public was singing along and everybody was dancing haha! It a feel good musical and I really recommend it if you go to London.

SECOND DAY SCHEDULE
Saturday: On Saturday morning I woke up really early and as I don't have a bath at home, took the opportunity and took a long relaxing bath. Than we went for breakfast and my favorite thing was the yoghurt. In Holland you don't have a yoghurt with a flavor that tastes like that and in Italy they have the same yogurt as well. (The brownies were yummy too) Today we walked to Regent Street and Oxford Street for a little bit of shopping. It was from our hotel a 15 minute walk. I went to Superdry, Antrophology, Jack Wills and a few more. I also went to the famous toy store Hamleys and it was really cool to see all the toys and bears! I really wanted to buy a bear but they were so expensive. We didn't go to the warehouses as they were a few streets ahead and it was a little bit too far. We decided to go to our hotel and rest a little bit. In the evening we went to the Lion King musical. I didn't think I was going to like it but I did. They played it really well and the little boy and girl were really talented to play such a big role so young.

LAST DAY SCHEDULE
Sunday: The days really flew by. It was also darker earlier there than in Holland so it made the days even shorter. I still really wanted to see the Big Ben and Buckingham Palace where the famous wedding of William and Kate took place. Afterwards we went to the British Museum which was really interesting. We went to the African Animals exhibition and the mummies were really cool to see as well. Than we headed back to the airport and ate something at Starbucks and flew home.

LONDON BUDGET TIPS
Tesco express: London is quite and expensive city. It's impossible to go out for dinner and lunch everyday. The Tesco Express is a great way to keep the budget low and still have a great meal. Their is a Tesco supermarket almost on every corner so it's really easy to find them. 
Bus: we actually took the same bus, line 23, as the sightseeing tour bus that was double the price. At home we already bought an Oyster card and it's great if you want to go by bus not only one time but for a few days in a row. It's a great money saver and it's handy because you can't pay with cash in busses. 
My First Trip to London + budget tips


Musicals: there are a lot of small shops in town that offer last minute tickets to musicals like Mamma Mia, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and more for a great discount. If you're lucky you can find some great tickets at a good price instead of buying them online in advance.  

Thank you very much for reading today's post! I hope you now want to start traveling too! There are so many fun things you can do in London, so next time I'll definitely go to the London Eye.

Aisle Style | Dresses Are a Girl's Best Friend

Hey everyone,

Dresses are my favorite to wear from all clothing items. I love picking the right dress for a special occasion and choosing sparkly accessories to make the outfit complete. While the festive is over, it doesn't mean that you can't have a reason to wear a beautiful dress. There are plenty occasions to wear a dress at the start of 2017, like as a bridesmaid, at prom or for a birthday party. 

Aisle Style is an online retailer where you can get anything from homecoming dresses, prom dresses, dresses for weddings and much more. They really have a dress for everybody and for every occasion. Aisle Style has a range of classic and timeless dresses for a classic sophisticated look. For a more modern look they also have a big selection of dresses based on the newest fashion trends. The dresses are tailor-made which ensures you for a perfect fit. The dresses are made from great quality materials and at a reasonable price. It doesn't matter where you live, Aisle Style delivers to countries from all over the world. 






Aisle Style has so many different bridesmaids dresses in all sort of shapes and colors. Since I was little I fantasized how my wedding dress would look like. I think very girl has done that in her life. Attending a friends or siblings wedding is also very fun and it's also the perfect excuse to go on a hunt for your perfect bridesmaid dress for 2017. If I was planning my wedding I would probably choose a classic bridesmaid dress in burgundy. I love that color because it reminds me of the winter and I would love to have a winter/Christmas wedding too. This dress is a short dress with a v-neck and a-line straps. I love the chiffon at the bottom and it's a really classic but trendy dress and I would absolutely see my bridesmaids in this dress! It's 109,99

Aisle Style dresses


In the US Prom is a very important occasion and the right dress is definitely a must have. You have to feel comfortable in what you wear and at the same time the dress flatters your body and curves in the right places. In the Netherlands we don't have a prom, but it would be really cool if we had it here as well. Prom is almost a competition who has the prettiest dress, although looks aren't everything it's still fun to have a little competition! The dress I would pick for my Prom would be this sparkly a-line crystal tulle dress. I love that it's a little bit see trough at the bottom and the sparkles in the front make the dress really cute. It's listed on the webshop for 139,99

Aisle Style dresses


Aisle Style also a collection with communion dresses. Maybe you have a little niece or know somebody who needs a communion dress. They are available in a lot of silhouettes, high-nec, v-neck, off the shoulder and many more.

LONDON HERE I COME
In a few days I'll be traveling for the first time to London and this trip on my bucket list. I've been dreaming of going to London for a really long time and now it's finally happening. I'm going to my first English musical called Mamma Mia, I love the songs so much! I'll do a travel post about all the cool places to visit, eat and shop at when I'm back from the trip. 

NEW BLOG PLANNER 
I also really need a blog planner. Over the years I've started to learn more and more about how blogging works and learned how to write better blog posts. I've started to love blogging even more. Now four years later after writing my first post I can see the progress I made and my English and writing skills are better than before. A blog planner is a must have for me, it's essential for writing all the ideas in and keeping track of everything all in one place. I'm looking forward to all the cool adventures and moments 2017 is brining and I hope you'll have a wonderful year too! 

Thanks you so much for reading today's post! I hope you're just as excited about making your own bucket list now!

What I got for Christmas // Present haul

Hey everyone,

I hope you've had an amazing Christmas! I spend the entire day with my family we had a great time together. I love these kinds of moments when everybody is appreciated a little bit more. 2016 wasn't really my year. Let's hope 2017 will be a great year for everybody with lots of fun moments and where wishes come true. Let's go onto my Christmas present haul now!

Hollister skinny jeans

First I got three pairs of Hollister skinny jeans. Hollister is my favorite clothing brand at the moment. They always have very cute items made from great quality. The jeans fit really well and are really comfortable. I got the jeans in three different shades. The lighter shade is more for Spring and the darker ones are perfect for now. 

What I got for Christmas haul

Lace dress

My next gift is a lace dress from Intimmisimi. Intimmisimi is an Italian clothing and lingerie brand. Everytime I go to Rome this shop is the first stop. I buy mostly practical items like tank tops and t-shirts or pyjamas. I didn't really know they also had party dresses. This dress is so cute and I love the short sleeves, basically everything is perfect about it! It's really a different dress from all the other party dresses I've seen on ASOS or at Pull&Bear. It's a great brand and you should definitely take a look at it! 

What I got for Christmas haul

Sparkly tights

I think Santa was a little bit in a sparkly and festive mood because I also got a few tights with a very cute festive pattern, also from Intimissimi. I think I'll wear them in combination with a plain black skirt or a little black dress and a pair of black heels. 

What I got for Christmas haul


Leather belt

This is a belt from the brand Legend. It's a brand with all kinds of leather accessories and I think they also sell bags but I'm not sure. This belt has a really tomboysich look and the rhinestones make the belt look really cool. It's a brand I've heard of before but I've never really tried anything from it.

What I got for Christmas haul


Body lotion

My last present is a body lotion from Burt's Bees. I love the name of the brand, it sound really fun and cute! I actually saw a range of body lotion at my local drug store though the scents were really nice. I got the body lotion with milk and honey and it's so good!

What I got for Christmas haul

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

Blogmas: Red velvet party dress

Hey everyone,

It's almost Christmas! I've just finished doing some last minute Christmas shopping for my family. We always have the tradition to eat fondue on Christmas every year. Fondue is basically making your own meat and with a lot of sauces, bread and different kinds of vegetables. It's kind of like a barbecue but than at your dinner table. I always love  of the year where all my family comes together and really spends time with each other. Today I would love to share a party dress that I'm going to wear at my Christmas party. Grab your favorite cookie and let's get right to it!

Blogmas: Red velvet party dress



RED VELVET PARTY DRESS

Christmas is the time of the year to wear your favorite party outfit. It can be a dress, a crop top and skirtor a suit. The possibilities are endless and really anything is possible.  When you go to a party the first exciting thing is to see what everyone is wearing. Everybody tries to look their best in their glamorous outfits. A party is also a great excuse to go on a shopping spree. This year I've noticed that I my own clothing style is changing a little bit. Before I really liked the classic and basic clothes, and now it's a bit more outgoing. I enjoy creating new looks with cool patterns but still keep my look classy. For my Christmas party I'm going to wear this velvet red dress. It's from the brand called Rosegal. Rosegal is an online fashion store with thousands of new arrivals daily. They offer free international shipping and have many different kinds of styles, from preppy to chic they have it all. I really like the fit of the dress. It's a mini dress and is just above the knee. It has really cool details like the cut outs on the side with a shoe lace. Velvet is one of my favorite materials for party dresses. It makes me feel really festive and it's also perfect for the winter season. 





I want to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas and enjoy your holiday! Would you ever wear a velvet party dress?

Have a lovely day,
Isabella
