When me and my boyfriend met up with friends the other week, one of them was wondering what I would think of his jeans on jeans look. Little did he know that’s one of my favorite outfits to wear lately! I wear my jeans blouse often with my jeans shorts or with every long jeans I own.
Actually the jeans blouse is currently my favorite item in my closet now I think of it. It’s different from a regular blazer I usually wear and it gives an outfit just that bit more nonchalance, which I really like. This time I decided to wear my jeans blouse with my darker colored jeans and a striped tee. A simple, everyday look that is complemented with some hot pink nailpolish and a shiny necklace. I was going to say sunshine, but that is unfortunately nowhere to be found.

not really totally not a work out person. I’d rather be lazy than tired, but I do understand that your body functions better when you work out regularly. I all starts with the proper outfit -duh-. That doesn’t only makes you look good but also makes you feel confident to succeed in a good work out. At least that’s how it works for me… I’ve had my work out gear long before I even started thinking about really working out ;).
Anyway, I started Bootcamp training yesterday and although I felt like I was dying, I’m going to do it again next week. While working out your body produces endorphin hence the happy feeling you have after a work out. If you don’t want to start working out outside and/or in a group, which I can understand, you can start by doing some exercise in your living room.
The last image is a good starter, it is called the Malibooty-work out and is supposed to give you a hot and firm behind! For some more at-home exercises you can check out my Pinterest board “For the love of a Hot Body“.
And remember… Sweat is your fat crying ;)
Mothers day is all about showing how much you love your mother. I love to give presents that are personal, like the bracelets from Van Rycke shown above. The fun part about gifts like these is that you can buy one for yourself and one for your mother. That way you’re always connected. Of course this goes the same for other jewelry.
What I also love to give as a present is an activity. Well.. a High Tea isn’t really an activity, but you get my drift. It’s about spending time with the one you want to spoil, in this case; your mom. A high tea is the perfect opportunity to do so, you get to eat delicious and pretty looking bites and have plenty of time to spend quality time with your mom. This can also be done at a fancy lunch or breakfast.
The picture shown above is the delicious and extravagance High Tea at the Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam, which my sister and I gave to my mothers birthday last year. If you live in Amsterdam or going to visit; this is definitely something I highly recommend.
SOMETHING EVERY WOMAN LOVES
Shopping! It is always fun to take your mother on a shopping spree. Let her pick one outfit of choice that you will then buy for her (of course you can adjust this to your budget). To make it more fun you can travel to another city for your shopping spree, some city which you both have never (or hardly ever) have shopped before. This way you get to spend time with your mom and make her happy with a brand new outfit. And who doesn’t love that?!
Make up always gives me a great feeling, especially when feeling down (or hungover); make up can hide it all. I’m not a fan of a lot of make up, on a daily basis I only use mascara and some concealer and sometimes eyeliner.
That doesn’t keep me from stacking up on everything there is to offer in the make up department though. Rouge, powder, lipstick, lipgloss; I have it all and hardly use it.
It’s just the way the make up department makes me feel and the nice people that work there. And there’s also that enchanting scent of make up and perfumes.
Anyway, these are my make up favorites;
Powder Chanel Les beiges | Eyeshadow box Yves Saint Laurent “The Bow Collection” | Mascara Dior Show | Concealer L’oreal Lumi magique | MAC eyeliner brush | Chanel eyeshadow in color “Illusoire” | MAC Liquid eyeliner “Blacktrack” | Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb | Estée Lauder Daywear sheer tint release | Victoria’s Secret make up pouch
