8 Cute party dresses

Hey everyone,

This is the perfect time to look for a cute and glittery dress for a Chritmas ball or gala. Next week my Christmas gala is already and I still have found a dress....I know, I'm quite late but I just want to find a dress that's perfect and that nobody wears. Which all these things in mind it takes a whille, but it's so fun to look for clothes for a specific event!  But beside that, maybe you are also looking for a dress that's perfect for you. I thought it was a good idea to list 10 cute party dresses and help you to find one or give you some inspiration.

December favorites

Hey everyone,

I hope you're having a great weekend!? It's already December now!! :)  Sometimes I wish I cloud stop the time for a moment but unfortunately that isn't possible. December is my favorite period of the year. It has always been. Well, I have to say that the summer period is also nice but this period is more cozy. When I go for a walk I love to see all the people that have Christmas trees outside and completely decorated their homes. I love to do that too. We also have bought a Christmas tree already and decorated it with white and red. (My fave colors!!) It looks very nice in the living room and makes it more cozy. Another thing which I love to make is a Christmas wish list. I always see so much things that I want that it's impossible to remember them. So I make a wish list with all the stuff and hope Santa gives me a few things...It's now very cold here in the Netherlands, around 2 degrees. There was a time when it was around -20 degrees!! I hope it will be this year so we can ice skate on the river. :) 

This month there are a lot of new things I want to do, read, make and more. I would love to share them with you and inspire you to also make your list. Here they are. Enjoy!! 

Watching movies is a thing most people love to do. And me too. It's relaxing and you just think about the movie and nothing else. In December there are a lot of new movie releases of movies I want to see. The one I want to see the most is a Christmas movie with Anna Kendrick. She is one of my favorite movie actors and she does it very well. She became famous from the Cup song. The movie is called Happy Christmas. It's about a break up, after the breakup Jennh moves in with the writer Kelly. That's her filmmaker husband and child. Jenny realizes if she wants to be happy she needs a relationship and career. The movie shows that evolution and I hope it's worth it! 



I have the tradition to put every year around December a light peramid in my room and a mini Santa on my bookshelf. I love them. My room looks more like Christmas and very cozy. Ohh, and also my fake ice skates on my wardrobe. I bought them around 2 years ago and they are from paper. So cuteee!!  





One of the things that's on my Christmas wish list is a thing that I want really bad. It's a Pandora bracelet. You can even add Christmas hangers on your bracelet. I hope I get that. Especially the snowman hangers and the pink colored ones are nice. I think I would like my bracelet to look like the one in the picture below. 



This is a Christmas DIY I would like to make. It's your own Christmas tree snowball globe and it's quite easy to make. You can put it everywhere in your house to add a sparkle to your room or it's also a very nice Christmas gift for friends and family. 


Because I love to dance I would really like to go to see a dance performance in The Hague at Christmas. The performance I want to see is the one from The Dutch Don't Dance Division's group. It's a winter wonderland performance and their will be famous dancers from So You Think You Can Dance. Exciting!! 




These were the things I want to have, make and do this December. I hope you liked it and I want to wish you a great Sunday and December,

Isabella x

It's my 17th birthday today!!

Hey everyone, 

Today it's my 17th birthdayy!! Yeah!!! I'm getting old... I am very excited to open my presents, but I already know what I get. A few weeks ago I went to the jewelry shop with my mom to choose two rings from Ti Sento, a brand which I really love. I can finally wear them!! One is with a light pink stone and the other is silver with a zirconia stone. I have invited the whole family for lunch and it will be very fun. And more presents! I also made a chocolate cake from a recipe that I found on Pinterest. And I tried to make a cake just like one I saw on the Internet. It's completely from chocolate, round and with two layers. In the middle 17 golden candles. :) Yesterday, I already went to the cinema with a few friends from school. I love watching movies. 










I want to wish everybody a lovely Sunday,

Isabella x

My life-Trip to Maastricht+shopping haul

Hey everyone,

I hope you're having a good day?! I just got back from my family trip to Maastricht and it was really fun. We thought we had to skip the normal daily routines. So we went by train and it was a 3 hour trip. We have to go at least once a year to Maastricht because it's a very nice place with a lot of shopping malls, the people are very friendly and you can eat delicous! And in one of the shopping malls is Hollister, it's my favorite shop. I bought a very cute vest a in another shop I bought two pairs of shoes which I'll show you later. This week is my autumn holiday and it's going too fast guys! 

I thought it would be a nice idea to share with you in a shopping haul the thins I bought on my trip and give you some tips where to shop and eat if you want to go to Maastricht.

Shopping haul
I bought this vest at the Hollister store. I saw it and I loved it immediately. Normally I always where clothes that are a little bit more conservative. But why not buy something with a cute pattern like this. Because Hollister is a beach inspired brand they have a lot of clothes that are too fresh to wear here in Holland. But luckily this vest was warm enough for me to wear. I bought it for €49. 


I also bought these pairs of shoes from the brand called Clarks. I've always wanted the classic shoes from Clarks but they didn't fit me. I was in between the sizes. Now I tried them again and they fitted me well, yee!! They have them in a lot of colors but I choose the dark blue because my winter jacket is also blue. They are very comfy and cute. I bought them for €130. 

The other pair of shoes are ankle boots. I wanted to try something different then long boots and I have to say they are very comfortable. Because I have very thin feet it's difficult to buy those ankle boots. But these fitted well and they are very cute!! I bought them for €100.


Maastricht must goes/tips:
-The first thing you must do when you're in Maastricht is to eat waffles!! On every corner in the city you have a Pinky shop that sells delicous waffles. You smell it from a far distance and they're so good!! 
-Shopping is no problem, you have plenty of shops and small markets to buy something. Their is one big shopping center and it's called Entredeux. It's in the middle of city and they have shops like America Today, Hollister, Ziegns and Siebel(Jewelry). 
-It's also fun to go to the Vrijthof. It's a big terrace where you see a big church and there is a museum to visit. Every season you have an event there. With Christmas you have an ice skating place or there are markets and other fun things to do.

Shopping haul: Beauty products

Hey everyone,

This week I've been shopping a little bit because once in a while it's good to give yourself something. I always love to go shopping(I think almost everybody does) and it gives you a happy feeling. Brands that I love very much are Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister. Because they aren't doing very well, if you haven't heard it they closed almost all they Gilly Hicks stores. In the US it's a lot cheaper and they have different items than in Europe so I kind of understand why it's not going well. But they now have more items on sale and sometimes they even have items that are really really cheap. I went shopping with a friend in a drug store and I bought two items from L'oreal. You got the second product free. (yes, I know I'm really a bargain hunter) I thought it would be fun to share with you in a shopping haul my beauty productsof this week. 

The are my Abercrombie & Fitch body mist and shower gel.
I was looking on their website and I saw they were both €3 each and without any shipping costs. So I bought them immediately and I use the body mist everyday now. For me the mist is even better than a perfume, a mist fuller. In this bottle is 250 ml and when you buy a perfume it's way less. The shower gel also smells really nice. That bottle has 236 ml. They are from the green series, the Westgate Prep. I really recommend them because they are really nice and also a nice gift for your friend or a for a birthday or something.


I also bought an eyeliner from L'oreal Paris. It's called the Super Liner Blackbuster. I was looking for a good and easy eyeliner for a while now and since I'm not really a person who really takes the time for it I found this one. I heard that it's really easy to apply because the pen is great. I bought it for 13 euros. I also got the eyeshadow from L'oreal. The color is called Infaillible. I really like it, the color is nice and looks cute in combination with the eyeliner. 




Well, I hoped you liked my shopping haul!! 
What is your fav beauty product?

Enjoy your weekend,

Isabella

My 17th birthday wish list

Hey everyone,

Today my one week holiday finally started!! I was really looking forward to it. But it's not going to be a holiday where I can relax and just do things I enjoy. I have to learn a lot because my test week is coming closer. I'm now in my final exam year and it's really important to get good grades of course. Next week I have a birthday party of one of my friends, which will be very fun! Oh, and also my birthday is coming up. Time goes so fast guys, I'm turning 17 on the 23th of November. I wish I could be 16 forever. But birthdays are always fun, last year I went to a dance performance in the theater from a famous choreographer Isabelle Beernaert from Belgium. She's great and makes really beautiful dances. She's also on the tv program so you think you can dance. Which I love to watch. This year she also has a performance and I think I'll go see it again.

Maybe it's a little bit early to already make a wish list for my birthday, but I'm a person who loves making lists for almost everything because it makes your head more organized. So I thought it would be a nice idea to share with you my wish list for my 17th birthday and you can get some inspiration for yours too! 

1. The first thing I really want to have is an infinity ring. They are so cute and I think the meaning of it is really nice. If you love to have them you can click on the images, they will redirect you.

2. Another thing that I also really love to have is a Bobbi Brown Lipstick in the rich lip color. Now I often wear lip glosses but it's nice to have a different look once in a while. And because I had a lipgloss from Bobbi Brown but my mom finished mine.

3. A cute comfy sweater. In the Netherlands it's most of the time cold. And it's perfect weather for comfy warm sweaters now. So I thought I would ask a sweater.

These were my three big wishes for my 17th birthday.


When is your birthday?

Current obsession: Swarovski crystal bears

Hey everyone,

There is one thing that I am obsessed with since a few weeks now. I'm talking about my Swarovski crystal bears!! They are so cute and tiny and you have a very big collection of them. Not only with bears but also with others animals and figures. 

Before I always collected a lot of nail polish but I never used all of them and I had to throw them away which was very sorry. But with these crystal elements you don't have that. I now have five small bears from the same collection. I don't really know the name of it. It started when I was on vacation and we went to our home in Italy and my father showed me a few of the elements he received from company. I loved them and I took them all!! :) The first one I got was also my fav, it's the one with the skies. It's soo cute!! If you want to take a look on the website of Swarovski you can take a look here http://swarovski.com




I hope you liked them!
What is your current obsession?

Have a lovely day,

Isabella ♥
