Stay at home date night make up look

Hi my loves,

Last Sunday was my husband and mine 3rd anniversary. On Saturday we celebrated by going on a city trip to Antwerp. We had so much fun! I will post some of the pics we took later. Sunday we wanted to do a stay at home date night. So I figured why not record a tutorial of the make up I wore! I took out all of the candles we had in home and baked my hubbies favourite cookies. I hope you guys had a lovely weekend and please check out the video I made :)

Moschino loves Disaronno party

Hi Girls!

Moschino and Disaronno teamed up and launched a limited edition bottle. The've had their launch party's from Berlin to Milan and Friday the've had their party in Amsterdam. My sister in law and I were invited and we took my husband and a friend of ours to attend. The venue looked really cute and had an amazing view over downtown Amsterdam. There were all kinds of dutch models and bloggers who all dressed like Italy in the 90s. I wore a denim jacket from diesel paired with a crop top and a black high waisted jeans. I also rocked some fake bangs and an authentic italian vintage hat!

I hope you all had a great weekend and talk to you soon!

Before I go to sleep, I love to play with my Nintendo. Who wouldn't love a pink console like this one? 

It was literally freezing this week! I figured there would be no better moment for my Uggs to come out and warm up my feet :) 

I got to have lunch with one of my best friends this week. We went to this place on the beach where they have fire pits to warm yourself at. I love drinking fresh mint tea when its cold out :) 

My amazing hubby surprised me out of nowhere saying that I worked so hard and deserved a little treat! So he gave me this present, (which smells amazing btw) took me out to a nice Greek restaurant and we watched a movie after. Thank you babe! 

Sunday morning we went to a meeting and had a family gathering but before that I woke up extra early (had such a sleepy head) and lit up a bunch of candles while doing my hair and make-up! I love my vanity so much ;)

I hope you guys had a great week as well and enjoyed my week in photo's.

My week in photo's

Hi Guys,

This week flew by! Last sunday I went to a organic farmers market in the city centre, I went snowboarding, filmed a couple new tutorials which are coming up soon but the best part of the week was spending the weekend with my family. My amazing dad and hubby build me a desk which I absolutely love to death! Today Martz (My husband) put together my drawers and is building me some shelves. Next week there will be some more jobs done, like putting up the wallpaper and getting a side table. If you would like I can do a make up room tour just comment below.

But first my week in photo's:

We had a 12 hour slow cooked pork sandwich at the organic market! It was delish!

Eyebrow 101: Shaping your brows!

Hi Guys!

From very early age I was intrigued by the shape of eyebrows. I saw my mom plucking hers, watched friends do theirs and saw all those celebrities with perfectly shaped brows. Ever since the day I started doing my own brows I'd gotten many questions on how I did it and they got really bad over time so I figured to do a tutorial on how to pluck your own brows!

Step one:

With a spatula or your tweezers determine the shape of your brows. You can do this by putting it against your nose and along the inner corner of your eye, then draw a line with a liner. Do the same thing on the other corner of your eye as shown in the picture and draw a line again. This should work as your guide. 

Step 2

With a brow brush or a spoolie brush your hairs in the direction of the natural growth. Remove everything outside those lines. So that you have a clear frame to work with. 

Step three

Determine where you want your arch to be. For my shape of brow just finding the highest part of my brow and drawing a line was enough, but you can always get help with one of those shaping stencils. (If you want me to do a tutorial on it, comment below) Remove every hair under that line and don't forget: Never pluck above your eyebrow!

Step four

This is the final result. Now you beautify yourself and fill in your brows if needed :) 

With make-up and filled in brow.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I hope I made it a little easier for you. Please don't mind the photo's of me without make-up! If you have any questions please comment below!

To reduce some of the pain, you can put a metal spoon (ice works just as well if you dry the area completely before you tweeze) in the freezer for about an hour so that it is completely cold. Place that over the area you want to tweeze so that it decreases the feeling.

Seaweed the superfood

Hi guys!

Today I wanna talk about one of my favorite snacks. It's the delicious wrapper of many sushi dishes, a main ingredient in some salads or could go as a snack when dried. But this algae isn't only delicious, it's also very healthy! Seaweed has a ton of vitamins and minerals in it and researches said eating a sheet of nori seaweed equals 2 sandwiches in nutrients!

When applied to the skin it withdraws access oils and water. Which is great for people with combination to oily skin. The seaweed tones and smooths the skin. I like to make a mask out of it once in a while! Here's how:

Step one

Shred the nori sheets in little pieces so they fit onto your face and prepare bowl with lukewarm water.

Step two

Steam your face before applying with a facial steamer or press a warm hand cloth against your face to open the pores.

Step three

This is the fun part. Now you can apply a little bit of honey on your face. This will not only help the nori to stick, but is also super moisturising and helps curing acne and stops ageing! Thank you, mother nature :) Now place the pieces of seaweed onto your face and try to fit all of them leaving only your eyebrows, mouth and your under eye blank.

Step four

Leave the mask on for about 20 to 30 minutes. Be aware that you are not able to talk during this time.

Step five

Rinse the mask with lukewarm water. You can close your pores by splashing some cold water onto your face. Next just feel the softness!

I hope this was helpful and please let me know if you guys tried it!
