Your jewellery dreams coming true.

{Advertisement - This post has been written in collaboration with Audaviv}

It is no secret, I love dainty beautiful jewellery. If it's rose gold, it's even better! But one thing I can't stand is cheap jewellery, which turns green and ugly after wearing it a couple of times. On the other hand, as a student, I don't have the funds to invest in extremely expensive pieces. But I still don't want to compromise.

That is why I love to discover new designer and brands that offer good quality products for a reasonable price. I personally tend to go for real silver jewellery which is plated with rose gold. This way you have great quality and it won't break the bank. One website I love to visit is Audaviv. They have different designers, smaller and bigger names, there is something for everyone! I have been obsessed with their Zoeca rings. 

The ones in the picture are my current favourites. The "Malibu is calling" ring is a real statement and I get questions about it all the time. The "Bow" ring is more dainty but just as beautiful. The choker and the bracelet are by a brand called Tom Shot. I love how you can discover new brands through Audaviv. Also, their customer service is incredible, whatever question or problem you might have, they are happy to assist you. You can really tell how important quality and authenticity is to Audaviv. 

What jewellery shops can you recommend?

New Launch: Armani - Stronger With You & Because It's You.

{Advertisement - This post has been written in collaboration with Flaconi}

Armani is one of my favourite brands when it comes to beauty. I am the biggest fan of their foundations. You really have to try the Lasting Silk and the Luminous Silk foundation, such a dream! But I don't want to talk about makeup. Today it's all about their latest perfume launch for him & her. 

"Because it's you" is the scent for her. I already loved the Armani Si` perfume, so I was excited when I got asked if I want to try their latest launch. And this one is not a disappointment. At first, it smells fresh and fruity with hints of neroli and raspberry. After some time the scent is a bit "deeper" with vanilla and musk notes. How gorgeous does that sound? I love everything that has vanilla in it.. so it's a winner for me! 

"Stronger with you" is the version for him. I can't tell you too much about this, but what I can say is: I am OBSESSED with this smell. I basically want my boyfriend to wear it 24/7. It is such a sexy, yet elegant perfume. For me, this is the ultimate scent for a guy. And yes, he also likes it (not that it matters haha). 

BTW.. the rings around the double rings on the bottle are a symbol of two bodies wrapped around each other. With that Armani wants to show an alliance that balances and empowers. Such a lovely idea. 

What is your current favourite perfume? I love to discover new ones!

The Ordinary - Worth the Hype?

*{This post contains affiliate links}

There has been such a big hype around the "The Ordinary" products lately, so I just needed to try some myself and see what the fuss is all about. I was quite happy with my skincare routine, but could definitely use a new face oil. Also, their prices are really so low (SERIOUSLY) so I thought, why not?
And I am so glad I did that!

I did some research in advance, because I wasn't sure what I should pick. I knew I wanted a face oil, a serum, something with vitamin C and also a spot treatment. So let's talk about the products I ended up buying. Oh just one thing before we start, the easiest way to buy those products is Asos*.. especially when you already buy loads on there haha..

Sounds amazing, right? And it is. It is simple and that's what I love about it. A lot of face oils these days have a variety of different ingredients. This one only has one. And it does what it promises. When I have extremely dry skin I use this at night and the dryness disappears over night. A life saver! And I can't wait to use it even more in the colder months. 

Such a godsend for everyone with dry skin. I mostly apply it in the morning under my moisturiser. It feels like my moisturiser and this serum are working so well together. I just adore this product. Also, it feels ultra light and not oily on the skin so I can wear it under makeup without having to worry. 

I was looking for a product containing Vitamin C, as I was really lacking this in my routine. And as you know, Vitamin C brightens your skin and I am all about that bright and glowy skin. I decided on this one as it is also supposed to have anti ageing benefits. I mainly use this at night as a serum. 

I never really suffer from breakouts, but from time to time (better said once a month) I get one or two blemishes. Then I love to have something on hand to help me out. Of course, you can never expect a miracle, but this solution really helped me out and minimised those breakouts. But I would say if you have sensitive or dry skin, only use it on the problem area, when you use it on your whole face I find it way too harsh!

Have you tried any of their products?
