Hi dear readers,

About a month ago I shared information about the jewelry brand NewDesireNYC. A couple of weeks ago I finally received the earrings I ordered. I did have a great collaboration deal with the brand, I could also receive a discount of 20% on their products and I also have the amazing discount code for you guys (still valid): Outfitvanded20.

product-image-421065572_590xThe product I ordered were the Full Moon earrings, they were $17.  I liked the fact that they have a simple design, one of the many treasures of the jewelry from NewDesireNYC. I used to wear bold accessories in the past, but currently I prefer simplicity when it comes to jewelry. What do you think about this product?

 

When I received them, I must be honest, I was a bit surprised. It came in a package from China, nothing on the website made me suspect that the brand’s from China (especially with the NYC in the brand’s name). I noticed on their Instagram that they collaborate with a lot of bloggers to promote their brand. I was a bit disappointed with the package, I must admit. It would’ve been nice to receive the earrings in a small box or something, but that was not the case.

What I do like, are the earrings itself. I have worn them already a lot of times, they are one of my favorites. I’m not sure if the quality will last long, but I am happy (or over the moon, in this case 😉 ) with the Full Moon earrings.

Pro:

  • Lovely design
  • Free shipping
  • Accessible website
  • Discount of 20% with Outfitvand20
  • Collaboration with many bloggers and Instagrammers

Con:

  • Package from China
  • Questionable quality

Nomination Liebster Award

liebster-award-a

Hi readers,

I’ve some great news, I’ve been nominated a third time for the Liebster Award! I was nominated by the lovely Sarah from Lifewithlilred. Her blog’s filled with amazing fashion styles (gotta love her outfits) and all kinds of topics you absolutely will enjoy reading. It’s a blog where you can spend hours and hours discovering something new and interesting every single time. Worth a frequent visit if you ask me! 🙂 So Sarah, thanks again for the nomination, really appreciate it and keep blogging girl! ❤

Let’s get started then shall we! First of all, I need to share the rules.

The Rules:

  • Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award.
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you.
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination.
  • Give these blogs 11 questions to answer.

Q & A:

  1. What is your favorite thing that you have done this summer?
    I’ve been to Barcelona with my boyfriend last week. It was our first trip together, so I was beyond excited! We had an amazing time, having him in my life is such a blessing. We did several activities, as you can see in my latest blogposts.
  2. What is your favorite type of weather?
    Well, currently we’re having a heat wave in Belgium and I’m craving the winter season now! But that’s just because it’s too hot now. My favorite type of weather is the kind that allows you to go outside in a t-shirt without being cold – and no rain. And yeah, sunshine of course 😀
  3. Who is a celebrity that you can’t stand?
    Hmm.. can’t really think of anyone. I do have the most respect for Hollywood celebrities who have a stable life, who don’t seek attention of the camera’s constantly and who have a down to earth personality.
  4. What is one of your guilty pleasures?
    Ben & Jerry’s. Chocolate and coffee. Gossip magazines. And I really enjoy the sitcoms Desperate Housewives and Devious Maids.
  5. Do you take pictures on your phone or with a camera?
    Phone, I have an iPhone 6 and the quality’s spectacular.
  6. What is your favorite form of social media?
    Instagram’s still my number one because it’s not too personal, unlike Facebook. You can always search for similar accounts for inspiration and it’s easy to use. You can follow famous people and stay tuned whenever something new’s up with your fav accounts. I also love the filters you can choose from when uploading your pic, they all look good!
  7. Other than blogging, what is your preferred hobby?
    Shopping, reading, cuddling with my bunny Fien, spending time with my boy/friends/family, trying new makeup looks and creating new fashion looks, … I like everything fashion, beauty & lifestyle related. I’m a real home person, I’d rather have a cosy home to stay in then going out every day.
  8. What was the last series that you binge watched?
    At the moment I’m watching Devious Maids, I really like it. I also like Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy and Lost. Not the latest hypes in TV land, I know, but I don’t really do hypes anyway.
  9. What book is on your night stand right now?
    *shame on me* I’m not reading any book right now to be honest, I just came back from our trip to Spain and I need to get back to it. Still searching for a good book though, any recommendations? I like romantic comedy or psychological thriller literature. Nicci French is always a nice choice.
  10. Describe a perfect day out.
    Any day with my boyfriend would do 🙂 We’re really close.
  11. What is your favorite flower?
    Kinda cliché, but I love roses. I just like the layers and the romantic vibe that goes with it. I do prefer the ones with thorns, because I love the imperfections. The idea of good and bad, I guess.

Fun Facts:

  1. I have an irrational fear of smelling bad, so I carry my deodorant like 24/7 with me. I also wear (way too much) perfume, just the idea of me not having a nice scent makes me feel dirty. I use deodorant at least 3 times a day.
  2. I can’t sit still. I’m always busy doing household tasks, working for my blog, working at my job, cleaning, etcetera. That’s why my boyfriend’s the perfect match because he’s able to calm me down and he makes sure that I take a break when necessary.
  3. I’m petite, I’m only 1m63.
  4. I have very annoying feet, whenever I wear new shoes I always suffer from blisters. That’s why I always prefer wearing sneakers, especially Nike, Adidas, Converse and Vans. Those are my favorite brands.
  5. I always carry way too much stuff with me. That’s why I can’t wear a small bag on a daily base.
  6. I’ve been blogging for almost 6 years now.
  7. I started creating websites when I was 9 years old. I learned HTML quite quickly. When I was young I fell in love with the digital world and I even made my own magazines for class at primary school. So it was no surprise that I started blogging at 18.
  8. Before WordPress I had a blog at Blogger, but after three years I felt like I had seen it all. The platform wasn’t offering enough possibilities for a professional setting so I switched and I’m glad I did.
  9. I’m addicted to coffee.
  10. I’ve dyed my hair way too many times. I’ve been blonde, brunette, black, redhead. Name it, I’ve done it.

My Nominees:

My Questions For You:

  1. What’s your favorite food?
  2. Why did you start blogging?
  3. If it was possible, would you like to be a blogger for living?
  4. Name something you really loathe.
  5. Is there something you’d never write about?
  6. What are the most important things in your life?
  7. Which countries would you like to visit someday?
  8. Do you like traveling? Why?
  9. What’s your favorite movie?
  10. Do you have any pets?
  11. If you could only have 4 apps on your phone, which ones would you pick?

Again, a big thank you for Sarah for nominating me for this award. It’s an honor, and it was great to answer her questions. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, make sure to share your opinions in the comment form!

OOTD: Taupe & A Handmade Bag

Dag lieve lezers,

Vandaag deel ik met jullie mijn outfit van vorige week, de dag dat ik met mijn ventje langs mama en bomma ging voor een doordeweekse koffie. Al was het deze keer eerder een ice tea, want de temperatuur lag toen haast over de dertig graden!

Qua outfit koos ik voor een taupe kleurig ensemble, een kleur die quasi altijd mooi staat ongeacht het seizoen. Mijn topje is van Liu Jo, ook één van de vele stuks die ik gekregen heb van mijn lieve collega 🙂 ❤ Het zwarte rokje heb ik al enkele jaren, zo’n basic die ik ooit eens bij Vero Moda kocht. Dat is zo’n kledingstuk dat je met alles mix en matcht. Mijn cross body/schouder tas heeft mijn mama zelf gemaakt ❤ De stof is in kaki kleur en de flap is gedecoreerd met glitterveertjes. Een beetje een nonchalant vallend model, het staat erg leuk met die losvallende top van Liu Jo. Verder droeg ik (natuurlijk) mijn satijnroze ballerina’s van H&M, alweer zo’n topper die ik regelmatig draag.

Mijn make-up was vrij sober, ik koos voor dezelfde tinten als mijn outfit: taupe. Voor de rest ging ik voor de no makeup look, kortom: veel laagjes fond de teint, concealer en slechts een dunne laag mascara. Eyeliner liet ik deze keer achterwege. Qua fond de teint koos ik natuurlijk voor producten van L’Oréal afgewerkt met het Matte Perfect poeder van M.U.A. om glans te doen verdwijnen. Mijn wenkbrauwen zette in in vorm met de Eyebrow Filler van Catrice, wat iets meer natural oogt dan een potlood. Ik gebruikte nadien de Keep It Perfect spray van Essence voor een sublieme afwerking die mooi bleef zitten.

We hebben echt een erg leuke dag gehad samen, wat resulteerde in mooie foto’s, mede dankzij de iPhone X van mijn ventje. We hadden ook ons Fien (konijntje) mee, die heeft het ook erg leuk gehad, achteraf kon ze nog loslopen bij mama thuis en zij komt erg goed overeen met het hondje van mama.

Shopping dag met mama

Foto 22-06-18 16 01 44_preview

Dag lieve lezers,

Afgelopen vrijdag heb ik genoten van een heerlijke shopping dag met mama. Nu ja, een echte shopping dag was het niet want we hebben nu niet intensief iedere winkel afgelopen. Maar we hebben het fijn gehad, lekker bijgekletst met een kop koffie. Supergezellig.

Mijn outfit was erg eenvoudig, sinds ik werk is mijn stijl echt veranderd. Vroeger was ik meer alternatief, nu hoeven die prints voor mij niet meer. Sober wint meestal 🙂 Ik heb sinds een klein weekje nu ook de Pliage model L1623 in het navyblauw. Het blijft mijn favoriete model om mee te nemen. Qua formaat ideaal voor het werk en voor op m’n off day rond te ploeteren in de stad. Momenteel heb ik ze dus in twee kleuren: oranje en donkerblauw. Oranje meer als accent kleur, donkerblauw kan bij alles. Uiteraard ben ik de deur niet uitgegaan zonder mijn All Stars. Als jasje koos ik voor een lichtgrijze, suède lederen waterval model.

Truitje – Hunkemöller

We genoten van een heerlijke latte macchiato tussendoor.

En natuurlijk ben ik even langs de kringloopwinkel gegaan. Ik vond een leuk truitje van Noa Noa en wat luchtig leesvoer van de gekende Astrid Coppens.

Het was echt een superleuke dag, iedere dochter geniet wel van wat quality time met de mama natuurlijk. Om deze post met een positieve noot te beëindigen, wil ik jullie bedanken voor het volgen van deze blog want ik heb de voorbije week er weeral 3 volgers bijgekregen waarvoor veel dank! Plus kreeg ik zonet een melding van WordPress dat Outfit Van De Dag maar liefst 1.000 likes heeft verzameld tot nu toe! Dikke merci aan jullie allen!
