Life update 9th of April: Adventures, struggles and shopping

Hey everyone,

It's been quite a while since my last blog post. I hope you are doing well!? My test week is almost over, Monday I have math and English and than I'm finally done. I feel like every test week is becoming more stressful and feel like I'm isolated from the rest of the world... ;) The wetter in Holland is getting better too, I'm very happy with that. Trees are getting leafs and all kinds of beautiful flowers are everywhere. The feeling of Spring is here! For my daily exercise I went for a half an hour walk in my neighbourhood because the sun was shining and it's a good way for me to relax and clear my head. I came across this beautiful pink tree and had to take a picture of it. 


life update rome http://isafashionebella.blogspot.com #bucketlist #travel
Some exciting news that I love to share with you is that I planned a trip to go to Rome in about two weeks from now. It's so cool because I go alone with my brother to visit my father who lives in Rome. Last year I also went by myself to Rome and with was an amazing experience. We have vip tickets to the Roma-Napoli football match, my brother and father really wanted to go there. I'm not really a football fan but I can enjoy myself in the restaurant with free food... Besides the football, some shopping has to be done of course. Every year on my visit to Rome I go to outlets like Castel Romano in Rome where my favorite shop is. It's a shop in the outlet where they sell brands like Timberland or Woolrich. I bought there a few sweaters and a cape. Another outlet that I really want to visit is Diffusione Tessile. It sells Max Mara clothes but are all more than half price so you can score very cute Blazers, shirts whatever you want. The style compared to big chain stores in the Netherlands is very different, not that they aren't good. This store is just more exclusive and the clothes are all original and with great eye for details. Next on the schedule is going to a museum because you can't only shop haha, something has to be learned too. Not sure which museum we will go to, but it will defenitely be worth it. Also I'm going to visit my grandparents, as they are also getting a year older I want to spend some quality time with them too because I only see them once a year. Family is very important in life and they mean the world to me. ;) I hope everything will go well because I am very scared to go by plane, do you know that feeling? Fingers crossed... For next summer I would love to go on a language camp with Spachcaffe to Barcelona, I heard it's an amazing city! 
Besides my adventure abroad, I'm taking driving lessons. ( In a red mini, so cutee)It's going a little bit slower than expected because I was coping with teeth infections but know my driving is on a good level and only need to perfect it. But before I can get my license I have to pass the car theorie test which I really start to hate now haha. This Tuesday my test is planned but I've had it so busy with school that I alsmot couldn't practice and learn for the test oops. It's also very difficult because every question is diffult and there are like more than ten thousand possible questions to ask. But someday I'll pass. ") 

life update rome http://isafashionebella.blogspot.com #bucketlist #travelIf you read my blog post in Febuary you may know that I got my ears pierced for the first time. I still love them very much and am now wearing tiny pearl earrings everyday. I'm soon going to get some bigger ones, maybe form Swarovski.

3 Exciting new trends to try this Spring

Hey everyone, 

The sun is getting brighter, the grass is getting greener and that means Spring is coming! I always love Spring, it's the season I love the most because the trees are always so beautiful in pink and the you can wear cute tops and skirts again. For this Spring there are plenty of new exciting trends to try but also trends that were really stylish this winter and are coming back next season. I thought it was a nice idea to share some new and stylish trends for Spring to refresh your closet. Enjoy! 

3 exciting new trends to try this Spring #runwayfashion #ss2016 http://isafashionebella.blogspot.com


1. The first trend for coming season is lace. In the past few seasons lace has always been a big trend on the runway. Designers like Dolce & Gabbana or Moschino have shown that lace does not always have to be just white or black. Coming Spring the big trend is to wear items in bright colors like red, blue or yellow. Lace comes now in all sorts of colors and patterns, even in stripes. I thinks this would be my favorite trend. Lace is easy to wear every season of the year. It looks classic, feminine and just gives that extra final touch to your outfit. When wearing a bright colored lace item, it's easy to make your outfit look too busy with too much accessories. The best thing to keep in mind is that less is always more. You can combine it with a simple necklace or ring and it looks already nice.

2. The next big trend for coming Spring are bows. Designers like Gucci showed on the runway that the new big trend can be worn in combination with everything. It can make your outfit preppy or classic and you can really add your personal style into your outfit. On the runway there were models who wore really big bows and some wore smaller ones. I recently bought a necklace from Abercrombie that you you can tie into a bow at the back. It's really cute and it defenitely makes your shirt look better!

3. This color will be very stylish this spring. It's the color orange. Normally I'm not really into all the bright colors, the softer colors and basic ones are the colors I wear the most. But after seeing the happy and cheerful color on the runway, I think for a change its not even that bad. On a sunny day it looks very nice and looks very cute. Orange comes into a few different shades, the more red orange and the yellow orange tones.

Kiko Smooth Temptation Lipstick | Review

Hello!

If you asked me what my favourite makeup product is, I'd definitely say lipsticks! I love them, I'm a little obsessed with them. A couple weeks ago i went shopping and of course I HAD to go into Kiko because i just really love that store, as i was looking at all the things I found a wonderful lipstick which probably is my favourite one at the moment.
I haven't seen many people talk about this lipstick and i really don't understand why. It is amazing !
These are my thoughts on it:

PACKAGING
It doesn't come in the typical lipstick package, this one looks more like a crayon which i find really interesting. It doesn't look fancy or anything but i really like the fact that you don't have to open it to see what shade it is as the packaging is made of the same colour!
TEXTURE
The first time i ever applied this i was really surprised with how creamy it is. It is so smooth on the lips and it glides on the lips very easily. I love how moisturising it is and you don't really need to apply a lip balm before. It dries a bit after a while but it still doesn't feel drying at all! The texture is probably what made me fall in love with it!

STAYING POWER
I love how it stays on for quite a while, like 5 to 6  hours, but it will go off if you have lunch as it transfers a lot which i find quite annoying.

SHADE
I got the shade English Rose 04, it is a lovely pinkish nude colour, perfect for everyday wear. This is a ''my lips but better'' shade although it is a tiny bit darker than my actual lips. It looks quite natural when it's on but you can still tell that i am wearing something on my lips, which i really love. It has a subtle sheen after applying it but when it dries it looks quite matte. This lipstick is very pigmented, with a single swipe you can achieve full opacity.

PRICE
To add up to everything i love about this lipstick, it was only 2.30€ as it is on sale right now which is a total steal!

WOULD I BUY THIS AGAIN?
Of course! i will definitely buy this lipstick again in the same shade and some other shades as well to try them out as i love them so much!

Have you ever tried this lipstick? If so, did you like it? 

Hey everyone, I hope you enjoyed the lipstick review from Paula! I asked her to guest blog on Isabella's Choice because I really love her blog and hope you do too. A little description of Paula: My name is Paula, I am an 18 year old Spanish girl who loves fashion, beauty and boy band a little too much!

Getting my ears pierced

Hey everyone, 

I hope you're doing well!? This week has gone by so fast, I have a fifthy minute schedule so I leave school everyday around twelve which is very nice. It's raining the whole week and I'm really looking forward to some sun now. But since it's perfect weather to stay inside and start blogging I thought it would be a fun idea to share with you my ear piercing experience. 
getting my ears pierced #earrings #piercing http://isafashionbella.blogspot.com
                                                                  Source
So I've been thinking about getting my ears pierced for a long time, but I never really had the courage to go and get it done. I also didn't really knew if it would look great or it looked as too much. I finally made the decision and last Saturday was the day I went to a jewelry shop in my neighbourhood with my mom. I was quite nervous and when I stood in front of the shop I didn't want anymore haha.. My mom asked if it would look good on her and I said why not. So she went and got her ears pierced. I dint look, but she was still alive... ;) Because it looked cute I wanted to go too and they women pierced my ears at the same time. But because I was so nervous my head was shaking and when I looked in the mirror, one earring was higher than the other. The women said of all the people she had pierced, I was the first person it happened too. Luckily it didn't hurt as much as I thought it would and I have already one earring. Next week I'm going to get my other ear pierced and I have my fingers crossed! 
getting my ears pierced #earrings #piercing http://isafashionbella.blogspot.com
I watched a lot of videos on YouTube of people getting their ears pierced, you see very dramatic reations of people crying and screaming. That's why I was very afraid, but it's not that painful. You feel about an hour after some light pain in your ears but that's normal and goes away very quickly. Now the beginners earrings have to stay in for about six weeks and than you can choose other cute ones. I have to rotate my earrings every night so the earring doesn't get attached to my ear. Cleaning my ears with anti bacterial cream is also very important to prevent an infection. I'm already looking at other earrings online, my favorite jewelry brand right now is Pandora. So I think I'll probably my mine there. What's nice is that the jewelry pieces match with other pieces. I have a ring with a white stone from Pandora, and they sell matching earrings with the same white stones. The Italian brand Ti Sento also has nice and classic earrings. 

At the end I'm very happy I did it and it's was unfortunate that only one earring was pierced well, but At least I know it's not that bad and I love the way it looks and really looking forward to choosing some cute studs. If you are still thinking about whether or not your should get your ears pierced, I recommend going to the jewelry shop and look at some earrings and place them in front of your ears so you really see how it will look. The piercing is really not that painful, you can always decide to remove your earrings anytime of course. 

How was your ear piercing experience?

Have a lovely day,

BFF Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Hey everyone,

How are you? Surprisingly January is going pretty fast, my test week is over and I'm already looking forward to my next holiday in Febuary and of course Valentine's Day! I've never had a boyfriend on Valentine's Day haha.. I wish I had because I see so many couples doing cute things on this special day and showing their love to each other. Also on the internet there are a lot of cute pictures of couples and on YouTube cute couple videos. But I'm a happy single teenage girl right now and that's fine too! Today I wanted to share with you the BFF Valentine's Day Gift Guide for some inspiration if you are looking for a cute gift for your friends. 

Valentine's Day for me is besides having a boyfriend is showing you're grateful for what you have and for the persons that are in my life. I always give my parents a cute card which says I love you just because it's a nice way to show your love towards the people you care most about. At school students can surprise each other by giving them a red rose, and it's anonymous so it's even more fun because you have to find out who gave the rose.(at least I did, and I found out my friend gave it to me haha...;)

This is my gift guide for your bff. What I always love to get is jewelry. I'm kind of obsessed with heart necklaces right now, they are just so cute and especially for Valentine's Day coming up. Makeup and other accessories are always good too! 
Do you like Valentine's Day? 

Have a lovely day,

The secret of staying fit and healthy

Hey everyone,

How is your day? Next week I have my test week, luckily it's only four tests and the week after only one to go. The only plus point of having a test week is that you have to stay there in the morning and than you can go home. I thought it would be a nice idea to share with you one of my secrets to stay fit and healthy, why I do pilates and why you should start too! Enjoy and get fit in 2016! 

the secret of staying fit and healthy #fitspiration #fitnessroutine http://isafashionebella.blogspot.com
About a few weeks ago I wanted to try something different besides the Zumba. I started doing more flexibility exercises, yoga/pilates and just simple exercises for toning your body. Working out for me is a way to relax after a long school day and really clear your mind and think about nothing. 


Basically my weekly fitness routine looks like this:

MONDAY Ballet class + at home 10 stretching routine
TUESDAY Zumba 30 minutes
WEDNESDAY 30 Minute Pilates workout
THURSDAY Zumba 30 minutes
FRIDAY Toning exercices for legs/butt/abs 15 min + 10 min stretching routine 
SATURDAY Ballet class
SUNDAY Relax day 

This is how my weekly schedule looks like. When I don't feel like working out or I'm too tired I try to do half the workout or just skip it for a day. Sometimes I also switch up some routines and do the workout I enjoy doing that day. Because working out has to be fun remember! It's good for your body to combine different kind of workouts. It's also what professional athletes do. Your body will be in a better shape and when you continue combing cardio and stretching/Pilates kind of workouts. This year I signed up for ballet classes and I really regret not continuing it when I was younger. It's really beautiful and maybe sometime this year the teacher said I can have pointe shoes yeah! These classes are at a ballet studio, but the other workouts I do at home in my own room. If you want to know where I find my workout routine videos, here I have some tips for you.

For Zumba I use the videos from Kim Johnson, a fitness/Zumba instructor that has a website where Zumba videos of one hour long are posted every month. They are very fun to do and really good cardio workouts. http://kardiokim.com I'm sure you also know that you can type in Youtube Zumba and get videos too or type Zumba and a name of your fav song and you get your videos too. You can make your own Zumba playlist on YouTube!

                                                                                  SOURCE

For my toning exercises my favorite channel on youtube is Blogilates from the fitness instructor Cassey Ho. She's amazing in doing all these exercises and building her own workout calendars. So when I want to do some toning exercises I just type in her channel legs or abs and than I choose a few videos. I don't really follow the calendar, but if you want/need a real schedule and being motivated by other popsters it's really a great idea to stick to the schedule. https://www.youtube.com/user/blogilates/featured
                              
What is Pilates?
Pilates is very similar to Yoga but concentrates more on your core and your strength. The movements seem easy but when I tried it for the first time it didn't really look like it was the move the instructor did haha. But after a few times it gets better and better, it just takes a little time. Pilates is also great for your posture and for your flexibility. It's a good way to clear your head and become relaxed. Afterwards I always feel like I'm stronger and feel really relaxed. For my Pilates workouts besides YouTube I go to the balanced life http://thebalancedlifeonline.com/pilates/28-days-of-pilates-day-17-your-health-vision/ where you can find Pilates workouts that are really good. She also has 28 days of Pilates that I still would love to do! Another site is https://www.doyogawithme.com/yoga_classes Here you can find al, types of Yoga and Pilates workouts from beginners to more advanced workouts. I love that the instructors are really calm and explain what you have to do well. 

I hope you enjoyed my post and found it helpful. Basically the secret to staying heathy and fit is to eat well and combine different types of exercises. 

Have you ever tried Pilates? 
Have a lovely day, 

Isabella
