Budget beauty products review

Hey everyone,

Today I thought it was a good idea to share some of my budget makeup with you. I love buying things on a budget when it comes to makeup. I will share with you a mascara, eye refresher, nail polish and blush. Enjoy!

Budget beauty product review-- Miss Sporty nail polish, ELF eye refresher and more http://isafashionebella.blogspot.com #makeupreview #beautyreview

The first item is the e.l.f. eye refresher which I love very much. It's from Elf, a brand that's eco friendly and on a budget. They have a lot of good products and this is one of them. When I have to wake up early in the morning and I still look a little bit sleepy I put the roller under my eyes and it's sort of the same when you put cold water on your face. The roller is very cold and that's why it's so refreshing. I think it was around one euro. Mine is almost finished, so time to buy a new one! I would give this eye refresher an eight.

My next beauty product is from the brand Miss Sporty. I know a lot of people have this mascara, I thought if everybody had it it had to be a good mascara and I gave it a try. But unfortunately I didn't like it at all.The brush is very hard and when you put it on your eyelashes it feels not good. It leaves black peaces everywhere and the mascara is also very hard to remove. I bought it for two euro. I do not recommend this one, I would give it a four. 




I got this blush as a gift from a friend in combination with a few other pencils and eyeshadows of the same collection. It's not really from a brand, I couldn't find it anywhere. But the blush itself was actually good which I didn't expect from it. It's very tiny and when you put it on the color looks nice and not too much. It stays for about a morning and I always put on a little bit more when you don't see it anymore. Especially when it's winter and you see a little bit white. I would give this blush an eight.

My final beauty budget product that I want to share with you is a nail polish form Miss Sporty. This nail polish is defenitely better than the Miss Sporty mascara. The color looks very cute and classic and you can wear almost everything in combination with it. It's like a French manicure, it stays for good for a few days. It's also a good nail polish base for nail art, I did that a few days ago and it looked very cute too! I bought it for one euro and I would defenitely recommend this nail polish. I give it a seven. 

Thank you for reading!
What is your favorite beauty product?

In love with Pandora

Hey everyone,

Since last year I've kind of got interested in the famous jewelry brand Pandora. They have so many different charms, bracelets, necklaces and cute other things that you really want to have them all. For my seventeenth birthday I got a Pandora bracelet with a few light pink charms. Once you buy a bracelet, you can add different charms to it. Now I still want to buy a pretty blue charm with silver. When I feel like I want to wear blue today, I change the charms and it looks just as pretty! I love that about Pandora. On my Wishlist is also a chain to protect your bracelet if the clip breaks, just in case it breaks.

Every month there is a different birth color that you can choose from. It's nice when you have your birthday and pick your matching color. The next Pandora Spring Disney Collection of 2015 will be available on 12st of March. A blogger who loves charms and brands like Trollbeads has previewed the collection already. She says it's full of Disney princesses, Winnie the Pooh and Frozen. The Disney collection of 2014 was more about Mickey and Minnie. I think I will love this years' collection! This is her blog: http://charmsaddict.com

I would love to show my bracelet with you and a few charms. For Valentine's Day my dad bought me a hanger/chain with a gold with silver heart to put on a necklace. I really love that and I thought it was very sweet of my dad to do that. (Chocolates were also good, but I don't say no to this;) I hope you like them! 

Thank you for reading. 
Do you love Pandora?

ASOS sale favorites

Hey everyone,




ASOS SALE FAVORITES

ASOS is an online fashion store that sells trendy clothes. You can always find something cute and in your price range. Like a cute gift for your friend, a beautful evening gown etc. It's one of my top sites where I buy my clothes. Today I wanted to share a few sale items from ASOS that I love very much and I hope you like them too. Enjoy! 

Dresses are very girly and easy to wear and to accessorize. With a cute necklace, slippers and bracelet you are ready to go out. I love to wear them, but here in the Netherlands it's often cold outside so it's not really weather for wearing these cute summer dresses. But when it is finally summer I do have to have a few dresses in my closet of course... This is a dress from Free People in burgundy. It's a nice color and I like the brand too. It's not that you immediately see where the dress comes. It's 87 euros. 





Lace is something I like to wear very much during the whole year. It looks always nice and even with a pair of simple denim jeans you look like you made afford to look good but not too much. This lace shirt is from the Danish fashion brand Vero Moda. It sells a lot of trendy clothes and it's very popular here, it's one of my favorite brands and you can see that when you open my closet.. The shirts cost 13,50 euros. 




Sunglasses are a must have for me when the sun gets brighter and the weather gets warmer. It's important to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes against the sunlight, but also to prevent getting wrinkles! Pink is besides red my favorite color. This pair of sunglasses look very cute and are from the brand Quay which I never heard of. I always look for the more classic ones and this time I thought why not buy a pair of sunglasses in pink. (well, they are still on my wish list but hope have them soon! It's 14 euros.

Wilfox heart patch sweater


This sweater is very cute, I love the heart elbow patches very much and that the sweater is a little bit see trough so perfect for Spring weather. It's nice in combination with a short, how she wears it and with a long necklace. It looks also good with a pair of leggings or jeans and from the brand Wildfox. They also have very cute pyjamas.(so expensive) It's 118 euros.

I hope you like them.
Have a lovely day,

Personal update || Life #2

Hey everyone,

I hope you are all having a good weekend so far?! This week was very exciting for me. I had my first driving lesson! Well, I havo to say I was a little bit nervous before. But I really liked it! I was aloud to drive and and navigate and give gas and push the brake. I read reviews online from people who also had their first driving lesson but they weren't aloud to do all these things. It was very fun, also because I drove in the Mini in red(my fav color). First I drove thirty where sixty was aloud, after a while I hit the gas and everytime I did that the instructor flew in his chair.... He was very relaxed and it made me feel relaxed too. Here in Holland you're aloud to taking lessons when you're sixteen and a half. When I was at that age I didn't want to take driving lessons. I just switched from school level, with new classmates and everything different. I was scared of things that weren't in my own hands. Do you sometimes have that too? And I think it also was because I wanted to stay a teenager for ever and not grow up. Time goes so fast, but now I've excepted it and it actually is very fun to do something new besides going to school. 


This week I had a my profile presentation and everyone from my class was really nervous. We had a geography lesson that day and the teacher asked if we all did the homework but actually no one had it. We were all really learning and practicing the presentation. It's a big thing, you work for it for more than a year and you want everything to go well. Also parents were aloud to come and afterwards there was a party/meeting. Mine went pretty well and I hope it's a good note after all that week I put into it. So glad it's over!! Now it's holiday for me, yeah!!! There is a movie that I want to see because like almost everyone already saw it and the reviews were very good. It's the fifty shades of grey movie. I'm pretty sure you know it. It's with a lot of romantic(you know what I mean;) in it, but seems nice to watch with friend in the cinema. Oh, today I went with my mom to a small town called Sassenheim and there is a very big store. Like a Walmart but smaller and they had all the Opi and Ciate nail polish for four euro. But I only bought a dark red Opi nail polish which I needed to complete my collection.(big collector)



This weeks life lesson I've learned is:
*It's scary to grow up, maybe you don't want to yet. But you will grow up as time passes, so just accept it and make it the best time of your life! 


Do you have any exciting things planned? 
Have lovely day,

Isabella

Personal update || Life

Hey everyone,

It's my favorite day of the week again, Friday. Even tough it's Friday the 13th my day went pretty well. I had school till three and had dinner with some friends. (Really nice pasta mm) Tomorrow it's Valentine's Day!! At school you are able to send someone a rose to show you care about them. It's so cute, I gave my best friend one. In all the years I am in high school I've never had a rose before. And everytime I hope that this mystery guy sends me one, but reality is different. Maybe next year. 


PERSONAL UPDATE

WEHEARTIT

Right now I'm laying in between all my clothes because I've wanted to sort and reorganize my closet. You really have to have those cleaning up moods, otherwise you will keep everything and not wear them. (So me) And I'm looking at all my clothes, thinking that I actually have a it of a clothing crisis if I throw everything away what I don't wear. Do you recognize that?  I just looks nice to have all these clothes hanging in my closet. Maybe that's why my mom says I have enough.. Abercrombie has a lot of cute clothes. Now they have more promotions and sales than before because the company isn't going very well. They have to, otherwise no one is going to buy something. I only buy something when it's really cheap, like with 70% off or something. Who buys jeans for 88 euros? It'sSure you heard that on the news sometime. So yeah, that's my Friday night basically today. 

I'm really looking forward to Spring break next week, just really no homework, spending more time with family and friends and I'm going to Maastricht!! :) Love that City so much. I have to go there at least 2 times a year. They have really delicous waffles(not just because the food, well maybe) and a lot of cute clothing stores which is very handy right now with my clothing crisis. If you are looking for a fun city trip than you should also go see this place! 

This weeks life lesson I've learned is:
*It's ok to buy clothes for the next season, but when you actually have to wear them you don't like them anymore

Have a lovely day,

Good flexibility exercises for the splits

Hey everyone,

I have always wanted to do the splits one time, but I never really had the motivation to stretch everyday. Now I finally have and since last week I'have done 15 minutes of flexibility exercises everyday and you can see the difference already. At first when I was standing up I couldn't touch the ground and now I can touch it with my full hands! Improving your flexibility is good for your body. I often have restless legs and these exercises really help for me to relax the muscles.

WEHEARTIT

There are some exercises that I do almost everyday that work well for me, a beginner and also if you are further. You won't see the results immediately, after a while you can see little improvements and eventually you can do the split!


Flexibility exercises

 


1. The first excercise that I start with is just putting my legs in front next to each other and try to bend over and touch your toes with your hands. At first you might not be able to do that immediately, but after a whille you can reach further every time you practice. Try to bend your back also to have a complete and better stretch.

2. My second stretch is this binding one leg at a time to yur other leg that you keep straight in front of you. Than you have to try how to lean to your toes or even touch them. When you did that for both sides you can also stretch with your arms in front in the middle in this position. Repeat this for boths legs.

3. This exercise is is called the butterfly stretch. Many years ago when I did ballet I always had to do this one because it's so effective and it makes your thigh muscles more flexible. Sit in the yoga position and move your legs up and down just like a butterfly! If you are more advanced you can try to push your legs more to the ground.

4. This is a very simple one to do. You stand up straight with your legs next to each other and lean forward with your stomach against your legs and try to touch the ground. If you want to have a deepens stretch you can also grab your ankles. 




Good flexibility exercises for the splits

5. My last exercise is this one. It's a step before the splits. Put one leg in front of the other and and push your hips to the ground. This really makes your thigh muscles more flexible and its a great start for eventually doing the split. Repeat this for both legs.

Other tips
* Keep stretching your body, otherwise you will have to start all over again
*Don't push yourself too hard. If you feel any sort of pain just do it a little bit less intensive
*I haven't mentioned this stretch above, but you can also do a stretch against the wall.
*For a faster result you can hold each stretch for about 30 seconds 
*What I always do after my routine is trying to do a split and see how far I can go. :)

I hope you liked my tips on flexibility exercises!
