Entire outfit – Zara | lipstick – L’Oréal Paris Collection Exclusive Laetitia’s Pure Red

The whole outfit!
Ok, so I might need to put a little more effort into working out in order to sport leggings. A good new year’s resolution (ha-ha). Going to the gym proved to be not really my cup of tea. Last year December I started a killer-routine, which I quit before the finals in March and I never really got into it again anymore. Too bad actually, but the gym really is so boring to me after a while, when the newness is gone. I might want to try ballet beautiful, though. For the Trend Event of L’Oréal Paris last Monday that I co-organised I found a Dutch version of this workout, called barre concept. It’s founded by a Dutch girl, Amber, who is a classically schooled ballerina who took a course in ballet beautiful in London before starting her own school here in Amsterdam. She gave a short workshop at our event and I would love to try it out sometime soon. I can’t wait to show you the new products and trends that we introduced to the press at our event. You’ll definitely read more about it soon on the blog!

Working for L’Oréal has as a great pré that you’re the first one to be aware of new launches and beauty trends. This lipstick, we launched last October in collaboration with the Free a Girl foundation. For every sold lipstick in that month, one euro went to the foundation that helps freeing girls from forced prostitution. A great cause.

I don’t actually know why I didn’t post about this collection before, especially because I absolutely love it. They are based upon four fenotypes; Blake, Doutzen, Laetitia, and Julianne. They suggested Julianne for me, since I have blue eyes and a hint of red in my brown hair. I love how sophisticated the colour looks on me, there is a perfect red for every woman. On top of it, the lipstick smells really good, which might be a pretty weird thing to say about a lipstick, but it’s true. The matte finish makes it very much ‘now’.

Still looking for a perfect red for the holidays? This might be your call :) What’s your favourite red lipstick?

HONEY, I SHRUNK YOUR CLOTHES

An all-Zara look! Had a Christmas party from L’Oréal last Friday in Club Air in Amsterdam. We had so much fun! The theme was neon, which I didn’t wear, haha. I wore my black open back dress, and high heels which I changed for my Nike Air Max halfway the night (haha, oops). We started in the afternoon with manicure and visagist sessions for all women working at the company. Major girl-time! The L’Oréal Paris visagist gave me beautiful plum-and-brown smokey eyes which I adored, and put foundation and blush on my face (I usually never wear anything more ‘cakey’ than a BB-cream, but must admit that I liked how it looked). Part of the reason is also that I do not trust myself picking a colour matching my face, haha. Are there more girls sharing this problem? Now that I now my True Match color, I might wear it a bit more often to see if I like it!

In the end, I took a night-train back home to Rotterdam, a cab from the station to my home (I got a free Uber ride but couldn’t find out how the app worked, precisely, so I took a regular cab and then accidentally ordered an Uber one in the end which I had to delete while hanging up on their calls, haha. Oops.) I got home around 04:30, together with my roomies who’d had a party from their study association, put my laundry in the washing machine (seriously, I never have time to do the laundry, imagine that 04:30 deems to be the best moment for it..) and went to sleep. To wake up around 9 already to find out that the awesome neon bodypaint tattoo on your shoulder doesn’t get off under the shower. Oh well.

INDIAN SUMMER

Blouse  and shoes – Zara | pants – H&M

And the whole outfit! We had such a beautiful start of the fall, warm days on which we didn’t really needed a coat or jacket yet. It’s like with the first day of December, winter really hit. Baby it’s cold outside! Winter coats, scarves, gloves, … it doesn’t seem enough. A good way to prepare for skiing, cause I decided this weekend to join my boyfriend and his family on their skiing trip in the first week of January! It’s been years since I stood on a pair of skies, so I’m a bit nervous, haha! What is also means though: no more clothes shopping! I cannot miss a dime spent on unnecessary expenses right now! Wish me luck :)

BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

This was only a couple of weeks ago, when the sun was still shining and open heeled shoes were not a problem yet. Right now, I only want to cuddle up in my warmest woolen pulls, wear my Nikes and Timberlands and drink hot chocolate <3 Who’s with me?!

Working on a very exciting event for L’Oréal right now, which will be held next week. Can’t wait!

SECRET SHOPPING DESTINATION: PARFOIS

In ‘Secret Shopping Destinations’ I’m going to share with you my favourite places to find the most unique items that are not known by the mass (just yet). I start off today with a brand I discovered last June, when my friend took me to a department store here in the NL that I hardly ever come because it kinda has this dull image (V&D), but girl do they have some good things.

Ok. So. I never really had a thing with bags, and my only big, big, crush on a bag like ever was this Zara bag that I was lusting over for months. Until I met a new friend; the brand Parfois. Ah-mah-zin’ bags for even more amazing prices. Yes, the prices range somewhere between about €17 and €45. So much for all those ‘spensive Zara purchases and wish-list-candidates; you can from now on lift the spirit at Parfois. It’d be even difficult to meet your creditcard limits here!

Loved my Giraffe backpack of last summer? Guess what.. ;) Indeed, it was a Parfois. I already selected some of my top favourites here for you, but I’d definitely recommend to have a look yourself if you’re still looking for a perfect clutch to match your holiday outfits!

Ps. this post is by no means an advertisement, I just wanted to share my excitement and secret shopping destinations with you :)
