Easter Break: Haul !!!

Hey Shopaholics

So I went shopping 2 days ago and I had the best day! It had been ages that I went shopping, which I think is crazy! I already enjoyed walking around in the stores and spotting the new trends, but obviously I made some purchases myself. First we went hair product shopping and then I made a exciting purchase! We had some champagne to end our shopping trip and the best part: they were handing out FREE (!) Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream!

1. Organix "Moroccan Argan oil Conditioner" (I'm using both shampoo and conditioner, and they're amazing, I ran out of the conditioner so I picked up a new one)

2. Macadamia "Healing oil spray" (I heard great reviews about this brand, so I picked up this oil. First impression: It smells amazing and makes my hair soft and shiny)

3. Tangle Teezer "Salon Elite" in Pink Fizz (Omg, why haven't I bought this before, it's amazing! Makes your hair so soft!)

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs "Dreamy logo Neoprene 13"(This color is discontinued, you might find it in some boutiques, you can stil have this model in other colors like Fluoro Fuchsia and Peony) This was my exciting purchase, I love it so much, it's crazy bright pink and it makes me happy, and it looks so nice and fabulous, I got a MacBook Pro a couple of months ago and now It has a fab new home!  

2. Forever 21 "Silver Anchor necklace"

1. Forever 21 "Black & White striped peplum top"(belt included)

Forever 21 "all 3 headbands"

What is your favorite item I got? Any questions or request for a review, comment below :)

Hey Lovelies

On the 8th of April, 2012 I started this blog, 1 year ago !!! It's so weird that my blog already exists 1 year, crazy :) I know I took a very long break, but It's still crazy. Happy Anniversary to myself!

The experience of blogging has been fun, and I'm motivated again to start a new journey.  A lot has happened in 1 year. Last year I was at home with a virus, and now I'm redoing my year at school, and I just found out that I got the permission to go studying in Paris for a couple of months next year !!! I'm so excited, can't believe it!

Imagine waking up in Paris every morning and eating macarons or croissants as breakfast, walking on the Champs-Elysées on the way to school...ok stop dreaming now! First I have to finish this year!

I feel like life is going by so fast, I'm becoming 20 years old in June, and omg, just writing it down makes me freak out, 19 sounds and look a lot better haha

I'm excited to continue blogging the following year, and please help me grow it a little bit :)

So follow me on my journey to share my passions and grow this blog. Life if too short anyways.

Lately I have been inspired by this quote, I love it so much and It's the honest truth. It fits my life right know really well. I found these 2 picture on tumblr, and I've been OBSESSED with tumblr.

Fragrance Friday: Abercrombie & Fitch no.1

Hello Lovelies! 

Finally I'm here with the second Fragrance Friday. I've been thinking about doing this for weeks, but every Friday I'm busy, and posting a Fragrance Friday on a Saturday just doesn't feel right ;)

I recently got this new perfume for my Birthday and I'm absolutely obsessed with it. I've been obsessed with Abercrombie in general. I bought it on my actual B-day, which I just thought that was cool, and hey, who doesn't want to look at the gorgeous AF models on your B-day.

A couple of months ago I was in Paris, and I smelled this perfume. If you smell it directly from the bottle it's not really like, gosh I love it. But I sprayed it on me and on a little card and during the day I just kept on smelling the card and I was addicted to it. I'm always hesitating whether to buy stuff or not. Since I just bought a Dior perfume I thought that 1 perfume was enough. So when I was home I regretted it so much that I didn't bought it, so then I knew I loved the perfume.

First of all I love the bottle. The shape is very classic, and I love the detailing on the side. Obviously I love the navy bow, I love anything that has a bow on it.

Second, the smell. I would describe it as a clean, fresh, feminine smell but still girly and sexy. It's definitely not the typical sultry, floral scent. It's the perfect all around scent, day and night, summer and winter. I don't know what they add to it, but it's addictive. It's a more mature scent, but still girly (but not in the sweet, floral way). I just feel very clean, fresh and I just think I smell very good when wearing this. It's my new everyday signature scent. I love it because it is very different than my other perfumes.

AF describes it as: Fresh, effortless and undeniably feminine, perfume no.1 is incredibly luxurious and uniquely carefree. af’s sexy signature scent was created by the world’s most sought after perfumers; the fragrance combines fresh peony, tangelo, white pepper, sandalwood and crisp white pine

Top Notes: Tangerine and Pomelo (Tangelo) 
Middle Notes: Fresh Peony (My favorite flower)
Base Notes: Sandalwood and Crisp white Pine

I also got a lot of mixed comments on it. It's definitely a yes or no perfume, you love it, or you don't. A lot of people said it smells amazing, and others didn't like it that much and thought it was a little to unisex, which makes sense because sandalwood is used in a lot of male perfumes.

Anyways, I love it and I'm addicted, and that's what counts. I hope you loved this post and found it helpful. Let me know below what your favorite all around signature scent is.

Which perfume do you want to see next?

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Things to discover: My new TV-show obsessions

Hi Lovelies

As you've probably noticed I'm a huge Gossip Girl fan, It's my favorite TV-show. I also watch 90210, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Desperate Housewives and Pretty Little Liars which is probably my second favorite TV-show (I don't know who A is yet so no spoilers lol ).

But I discovered 2 new TV-shows through my friends and I'm obsessed with them after the first episodes!

The Lying Game

The Lying Game is my new favorite show, since it's a little more girly. It's about Sutton who just found out she has a identical twin sister Emma. They were separated at birth. Sutton lives in Phoenix, in a rich family and seems to have the perfect life and Emma is a foster child that lives in Las Vegas. Emma escapes from home and goes to Phoenix. Sutton discovered something in the search for their birth mother, and has to go to Los Angeles, so Emma takes Sutton's place, and discovers she has a lot of hidden secrets.

It's such a fun show, especially the part where Emma takes Sutton's place and the mystery of their birth mother,... . It's fun, girly, romantic and mysterious. Just watch the pilot and you will be addicted!


Emily Thorne comes to the Hamptons for the summer, renting a home next to the Grayson family to enjoy a bright summer. However, it is revealed that Emily has been to the Hamptons before as a little girl. In reality, Emily is Amanda Clarke, whose father was framed for a crime he didn't commit and sent to prison for life. She was permanently separated from him and never saw him again. Now, she's returned to the Hamptons, intent on getting revenge against those who wronged her and her father, the top of that list being Victoria Grayson, matriarch of the Grayson family and the woman whom her father loved and who, in the end, betrayed him.
As she sets her plan in motion, Emily tries to navigate the upper society to destroy those who betrayed her father.

I know I totally copied this from Wikipedia since It's a little hard to explain, and the first 2 episodes where a little difficult to understand, at least for me. But know I love the show. It's kind of different than what I normally watch. I just love everything about it. I love the Hamptons, the high society the rich families, it's so fun to watch. But the mystery, the drama, the revenge, the lies just makes you addicted. They say the show is "sexy" and "sticky".
2 extras to the show? Hottie Daniel Grayson and the Style of Ashley (the party planner).

Definitely check these 2 TV-show out, if you haven't already. Let me know what you favorite TV-show is and if you discovered a new one lately.

Mermaid Beauty: My favorite Waterproof Mascara

Hello Beauties 

Ever wondered how mermaids always look so pretty, while swimming all the time and rolling in the sand. Well I found their first secret! 

I love summer, laying out in the sun next to the pool or at the beach, but I'm a beauty girl and I always like to wear some makeup. In particular, I love to always accentuate my eyes, and that's why mascara is my best friend. 

You know those panda eyes after swimming, although you didn't rub your eyes? Been there, done that. Last year I discovered the best waterproof mascara (I tried so far) and it is the Volume Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara by L'Oreal Paris

First of all I love this mascara in general, it really separates your lashes, and yes it does give you the million lashes look. It also makes your lashes fuller, which is great since I don't wear eyeliner at the pool/beach. And it still gives you a natural more feathery look. 

But the Waterproof formula is amazing, your mascara just stays on, it doesn't smudge or run down your face, it just sticks to your lashes. I cried, swam, sweated in this mascara and it's amazing.

That means you also need to get a good makeup remover, I know L'Oreal has a good one and I've also heard great things about MAC cleanse off oil.

I hope this was helpful and let me know what your favorite waterproof mascara is.

Bye Bye scary looking panda eyes.

xoxo B.
