Why you should invest in the perfect sunnies | Tom Ford.



I think we all have this one item (or multiple) that we just enjoy buying more than other things. I certainly love buying boots, coats, dresses and sunglasses. To be honest, all I wear most of the year are dresses and boots, so it's kind of a necessity to update my collection from time to time. And coats.. to me that's one of the main reasons why I love autumn and winter, coats are so easy. You just throw them on and you look amazing, even if you wear the most basic outfit underneath. Such fun!


Well, then there are sunglasses. I don't know what it is about sunnies but I am always on the hunt for my next pair. They just elevate your outfit, make you look sassy, chic, cool or whatever you want to be. Also, who can deny how practical a big oversized pair of black sunglasses are when you can't be bothered to do your makeup? And no one can ever tell.. magic! 


As you know I love my high-end makeup, when it comes to sunnies it's no exception. So recently a new pair found their way to my collection: The Tom Ford FT0461 05W. I was on the hunt for a black pair, with gold details and a cat-eye shape. These just fill the gap in my collection. Aren't they gorgeous? Also if you want to save some money while buying gorgeous designer shades, just visit smartbuyglasses. They have an amazing collection at even more amazing prices. 

Next on my list: the Celine Tilda sunnies, or the some MiuMiu ones? Oh, I just want them all!

What sunnies are on your wishlist?

The Summer Makeup Edit | Bronze Eyes



One of my go-to looks in the summer is a bronzy eye-look. Especially when it has a red or purple undertone to make my green eyes pop even more. This is exactly what I love about bronze summer looks.. it can have a lot of different tones to it to make it customised to your complexion and eye colour. I also really love quite cool toned looks with more of a silver shimmer instead of a gold one. That doesn't suit me that well but I am sure there are a lot of girls out there who look stunning with that!

Today I want to share with you, my go-to bronzy eye makeup for the summer time. So let's get started.



For the actual colour on my eyelids, I love simple products. I am by far not a makeup artist so I am all for the simple products. For this, I love the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock. This is such a dream product. Easy to apply and blend. It's only one product but it gives you a really easy and beautiful shadow. One of my all-time favourites and I can't wait to pick up more colours in the future. 

Sticking with easy products, I have recently started to only use a tinted brow gel on my eyebrows. I think especially on those hot days I can't be bothered to spend ages on my brows, which I normally do. Exactly for those days, I love my Givenchy Mister Brow Filler in 01 Brunette. Simple product but great results. 

For me, this wouldn't be a summer look without two things: brown eyeliner and a pretty highlighter of course. Let's start with the liner. For my standard wing, I love to use my Guerlain Fluid Eyeliner in 05 Brun Cendre. Such a gorgeous opaque true brown which lasts even on the hottest of days. 
For my lower lashline, I like to use a bit of YSL Dessin du Regard Waterproof Liner in 02 Brun Danger. Again, very opaque and long lasting. Exactly what I need on those hot summer days. 

Let's get to highlighter.. of course, I always need highlighter on my face. I just can't live without it! But no eye look is complete with a bit of glow under the browbone and in the inner corners of the eyes. For this, I am currently loving the Dior Nude Air Luminizer. A very subtle highlighter which gives you that glow without being glittery. I love my Becca Champagne Pop but this one is my go-to for my daily makeup.



For mascara, I am still loving and using my YSL The Shock Mascara in black. It gives me incredible volume and almost a false lash effect (which I LOVE). So if you love dramatic lashes this one is for you! I also sometimes wear false lashes over this mascara if I feel super dramatic that day.
Concealer is another must for me in the summer time as I tend to skip the foundation part completely. Here I use my trusty Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer in 01 Light. I just haven't found a better one.

Last but not least I want to quickly mention a nude lipstick I have discovered recently. It goes with everything, but what is a better combination than bronzy eyes and nude lips? The dream! I am talking about the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 05 Beige Etrusque. 


By the way, if you want great deals for your summer makeup, head over to flaconi.de! They have an amazing discount on products for the perfect summer face makeup. But be quick, it's only TODAY!

The Summer Lips Edit.


When it comes to lip products in the summer I tend to stick to my nudes. Haha okay, I love nude lips all year but in the summer especially there is nothing else that comes on my lips. Of course, there are beautiful orange, coral and peachy shades that scream summer, but that's just not me. 

So today I will show you my go-to nude lipsticks this summer.


First off, we have the Dior Lip Addict Ultra Gloss in 785 Diorama. Normally I am not the biggest fan of lipgloss. But when I wear one it's in the summer. I just love this wet and shiny look at this time of year. Also, you can easily wear it on top of lipsticks.. so versatile. This is my go-to nude lipgloss at the moment. In the tube, it looks a bit dark but on the lips it's the perfect natural shade. The finish is very shiny. But there is not a lot of glitter to be seen on the lips, which I totally like! The perfect day-to-day product for the summer. 

Tom Ford is one of my favourites when it comes to lipsticks at the moment. The formula is a dream. So creamy, opaque and long lasting. And the colours.. it's so hard to choose! My two favourites are again quite pinky nude shades. I don't know why, but pinky nudes suit me so much better than beige or even orange-toned nudes. They look so weird on me.

My two shades of choice are 04 Indian Rose and 07 Pink Dusk. Indian Rose is a bit darker and by far my most favourite. Pink Dusk is more girly, but also looks very pretty!


What are your go-to lipsticks in the summer?

Where I buy my necklaces.



I sometimes wear rings, I sometimes wear watches but something that you will always see on me are necklaces. And most of the time I will wear the same ones over and over again. I get so many questions about my worldmap necklace everytime you can see it on Instagram, so I thought I would sit down and write a post about where I usually shop my necklaces. 

The three necklaces you see in the picture are the only ones I wear. Most of the time I pair the small one with either the zodiac or the worldmap necklace. I just love layering!

So, the Zodiac and the worldmap necklace I got from Stilnest. The worldmap one, I already have for more than a year and have been wearing it non stop. And when I say non stop.. I mean it. I would sleep with it, shower with it.. everything! I also got a little "S" engraved on it, that's for my boyfriend's name. The quality is still amazing and that's why I decided to pick up a second one. This time I went for the zodiac necklace in the slightly longer version. You can get both in three different lengths. I have S and M. They also have both these necklaces in silver, gold and rosegold. So there will be something for everyone!

By the way, there is a huge sale going on on some zodiac necklaces. Just click here, and enter the code GEMINI20 at the checkout for 20% discount. It is valid until the 21st of June. So hurry!

Last but not least I have this dainty little Necklace from Missoma. I wear this one every day since I got it. It is so small and beautiful that I can pair it with everything.. so simple. On this one I have a "L" and "S" engraved on each side. Again, their quality is amazing. Definetly worth a little splurge!

Where do you like to shop necklaces or jewellery in general?
