Let’s talk about: Make-Up.


Let’s talk about make-up. As a girl I always loved to try my mums make-up. To keep me quiet she gave me her make up and allowed me to make her prettier. Of course she ended up looking like a make-up monster. When I was fourteen I was allowed to use make-up, but only mascara, eyeshadow and powder. I used to go to the local HEMA store and buy a new stuff. Now, many years later, I get my make-up mostly from Lancome and L’oreal Paris. Lancome’s Teint Miracle and Hypnose mascara are the only products from Lancome that I use on daily basis. I love the light structure of Teint Miracle, it is easy to apply and feels like you have nothing on your skin. Hypnose mascara is a favorite as well. It gives the right volume, lengthens properly and adds a little drama 😉

From L’Oreal Paris I almost use everything. I recently bought a lipstick form the Color Riche line and I’m definitely in love with it. It’s just the right red that I was looking for. I also use the eyeshadows from Color Riche Smoky Die for Chocolate 302 and Smoky Place Vendome 306 for a natural smokey eye effect. Super Liner perfect Slim from L’Oreal Paris is the perfect liner for everyday use as well. My favorite nail polish colors from L’Oreal Paris Color Riche are Scarlet Vamp 404, Jolie Brunette 110 and topcoat Goldleaf 920.

I don’t like to buy only expensive make up just because it is cool to have them, like a whole collection of MAC Lipsticks. You have to be able to play and experiment with it and I woundn’t waste my expensive make-up just to practice smokey eye effect.  My make-up varies between affordable brands like GOSH and L’Oreal and expensive brands like Lancome, Chanel, Lancaster & Guerlain.

What are your favorite make-up brands and which one is the most important to you that you just can’t live without?

Instagram is one of the most popular social networks we use these days. Some use it to capture the moment and share them with others, while other people use instagram for fashion inspiration by following bloggers, models or fashion designers or by posting their own outfits.

The Bucket List


Hey Everyone!

How is 2013 so far? Well, mine is really lazy and hungry, Lately all I’ve been doing is watching Gossip Girl, listening to Lana del Rey and eating a lot!

I’ve been planning this for a while, but I postponed this eveytime because I had to add some few things. I want to make a bucket list with things that I have to do before I turn 20. So, I’ve like 15 months left to accomplish the “goals” on my bucket list.

I want to share with you what I want to accomplish before my 20th birthday. Please don’t judge me, I;m trying to get out of my comfort zone and live life as I want to. So let’s start with normal stuff.

  • I want to write a book. A book about things I’ve experienced and how I did this. How I felt, what I thought, what I wanted to do. My back up plan is, if  I can’t finish a book within 15 months, I will write few short stories and I’ll send them to a publisher. I came to this idea when I finished Françoise Sagan’s Bonjour Tristesse. My teacher told me that she was like 18 when she wrote that book, and it’s now a classic. So.
  • I want to volunteer at Amsterdam Fashion Week. Actually, I don’t think AFW is as outrageous as Paris Fashion Week, but I have to start somewhere. Besides, for Paris Fashion Week I have to be like 3 weeks before it in Paris and I don’t know anyone in Paris where I can stay for a while and hotels are too expensive for three weeks or whatever.
  • Speaking about Paris. After I graduate I want to make a trip to Paris. Especially during Paris Fashion Weelk, because then I can spot celebrities and fashion people while they’re on their way to a show. I want to do this alone. Which is scaring the shit out of me, because I don’t like to be alone. Especially in a big city like Paris. But if I want to get out of my comfort zone, I have to push myself. 
  • Since two years I’ve lost 10 kilo’s. I’m 1.68cm tall and I weigh 57kg. Still I’m not that happy with my body. I’m going to the gym 2/3 times a week. I’m trying to eat as healthy as possible. So I would like to lose 5kg to achieve my target weight.
  • I want to make a painting. I want to paint myself as the way I see me in the mirror. The confidenct me and the insecure me. I don’t know why.
  • I want to get a tattoo. Preferably on my neck. It’s gonna be a text, written in Arabic and it’s gonna say : Love Yourself First. I know my parents are against it, but I know what I’m doing.
  • I made this blog, because I wanted to share my taste of fashion with you. But, I’ve never really posted something about my clotches or a specific look. So, I’m going to try to do this more often. And I want to make my blog well known in The Netherlands and Azerbaijan.
  • I have this weird kind of love for books. In the last few days I’ve been buying some books. Today I ordered Françoise Sagans Bonjour Tristesse and F. Scott Fitzgeralds Tender is The Night. I want to expand my bookcase not only with Fashion books, but also by some great authors.
  • I find the human body, naked ofcourse, very interesting. You are completely naked, you have nothing to hide behind. So, no I’m not going to make it look artistic or whatever. All I want to say is. I want to go skinny dipping! But preferably not in the sea, because I don’t like to swim in the sea when it’s dark. So a swimminpool would be nice. I’ve done this once, but i was alone. I want to do it again, but with other people. So far, I have not managed to persuade someone, but I hope one day I will.
  • I want to speak French fluently. I have French classes at school, but somehow I don’t pay attention to the teacher. Not that she’s boring, no not at all. She’s funny. But I find the way that we are learning it, very boring. Besides, after school I’m not really using it. Only when I watch French movies without subtitles.
  • I never have been stoned. I really want to get completely stoned. (I hope my parents aren’t gonna read this)
  • I love singing. I’ve actually quite a pretty voice. I want to upload  a video of me singing a song on youtube. I’ve always sung at school competitions and that’s it. I just want to bring it to the next level. I am actually terified of doing this.
  • I like women. Not that I’m gay or bisexual, but I’ve always liked women better than men.  So I want to kiss a girl before I turn 20. I’m just curious about how women kiss and how it feels. Is there any difference? Please, if you read this, don’t tell my parents! PLEASE! 

So far, these are the things I want to do before I turn 20. For some of you some things here will be shocking, for some simply boring or something. But these are the things I want to do before I get responisbilities and become an adult or whatever.

Do you have a bucket list? Are there things you want to get out of your comfort zone for?

Oh Baby, I’m in Paris!


Hey there!

I know it’s been a while since I posted something, but it’s because I’ve done some great things! A few weeks ago I wanted to write about how badly I wanted to visit Paris. Paris is one of my favorite cities, but I hadn’t it. But that same day, my aunt, who is for 2 weeks in Holland visiting us with her husband and daughter, came up with an idea to go to Paris in the weekend with my niece and uncle. And the awesome part was, she was taking me with them!

The next day we were in PARIS! I really enjoyed being there and had a fantastic time, I felt like I was born there and could find everything very easily. The people were very kind and polite. The hotel was great, it was just a street from the Louvre. 

The First Day.

The day we arrived in Paris, we went to our hotel, took a shower, put on something pretty and went to the Louvre. After that we went to the Eiffel tower. My sister said it was very beautiful at night and you had great view when all the city lights were on and everything. But there was one little problem when we arrived there. The queue was really long. Not just long, but extremely long. It wasn’t really what I had expected. So after an hour we finally could buy our tickets and guess what, we were the last group who could enter the Eiffel tower, because it was already 12:00 pm. As my sister told, the view was prodigious from the top! Well, after we visited the Eiffel, it was already 1:15 am and there was no metro to Quatre Septembre, where our hotel was. And of course we didn’t know that. We transfered to another metrostation and figured it out. It was cold, it was raining, my feet were killing me and there was no metro! The first cab I asked wanted €30 and ofcourse I didn’t take that one. After a 30 minutes I finally found a taxi who took me to my hotel for €13,90. 

The second day.

Exhausted as we were from the previous night, we managed to wake up full with energy to go on. We visited the Versailles and Champs-Élysée avenue. Did a little shopping and walked till our feet begged us to return to the hotel.

The third day,

Next to the Louvre, there was a ferris wheel. The view from the ferris wheel was awesome! After that we took Le Bateaux Mouches and had a lovely sightseeing. The third day was, I think, more walking around doing nothing but shopping. With shopping I mean buying little souvernirs etc. 

The forth day.

We woke up at 6:00am, took the metro to the busstation and came back to Amsterdam. =(

Now, at home, I’m like daydreaming about Paris. About how it would be if I lived there, you know all those “if ” questions.

Some dreams do really come true =) and I’m really happy that at least this dream came true!
