Haute Nature, Antolini

Hi Loves!

Today’s blogpost is all about Antolini and Haute Nature.

Ever since it was founded, Antolini has always been at the vanguard of the natural stone industry. Just like major fashion houses, Antolini keeps their finger on the pulse of the industry and with the introduction each new collection, they are the ones that dictate new trends, patterns, designs and colors.

With Haute Nature, Antolini pays tribute to the greatest designer that has never walked on our planet: Mother Nature.

Natural stone is the skin of our planet. Perfect in its imperfections, it is asymmetrical, rough, irregular, incomplete and imbalanced. Yet it has always been an object of desire, just like fashion. Personally, I have always felt drawn to it. Whenever I went to Italy, Switserland or Austria I was always amazed by the rough beauty of stones. There is something about stones, when you touch them and look at them, that makes you feel so much of the history of our world. Personally I have always felt drawn to it. Whenever I went to Italy, Switserland or Austria I was always amazed by the rough beauty of stones.

To make Haute Nature an integral and everlasting part of the fashion industry, Antolini has produced 15 wonderful busts that show what is possible with something that is considered a “dead” object, like stone. These busts are meticulously carved and shaped, from very dramatic to serene natural stones, by Antolini’s craftsmen.

Antolini has definitely stolen my heart, and definitely deserves to use the term ”Haute Nature”. For its amazing, exquisite designs that make gorgeous interior pieces.

Hair make over at Keune!

keunemakeover

 

For a long while now I’ve been thinking to do something different with my hair. I’ve been going back and forth for months ( if not years.. ) wether or not bangs would look good on me or not. When I got the invite to the Keune headquarters in the Netherlands for a tour and a cut and colour appointment with a top hairstylist, I figured this had to be the day. It’s now or never!

 

*

 

Al een tijd lang wilde ik iets heel anders doen met mijn haar, ook zat ik al maanden, zo niet jaren, te twijfelen of een pony mij zou staan of niet. Toen ik een aanbieding kreeg om een rondleiding te krijgen op het Keune Hoofdkantoor inclusief een knip- en verfbeurt door een topstylist dacht ik, dan is dit mijn kans! It’s now or never!

We started off with a tour around the Keune building, visiting their lab, production room and storage.
For a western company, it’s extremely unusual when they make their products in their own country, let alone in their own building which is also the headquarters. Keune explained that they are a family business and like to keep control and a clear view of all the processes. That way it stays close and personal. Really special to see!

 

*

 

We begonnen met een tour door het Keune gebouw, we liepen langs het lab, de productie hal en de opslag ruimte. Voor een bedrijf dat in het westen gevestigd is, is het erg bijzonder om je producten te laten maken in jouw eigen land. En zeker als dat ook nog een in je eigen hoofdkantoor gebeurd! Keune legt uit dat het een familie bedrijf is, en dat ze het fijn vinden om zelf bovenop alle zaken te zitten om er zo controle over te houden. Zo blijft het natuurlijk dichtbij en persoonlijk. Erg bijzonder om te zien allemaal!

 

DSC08207 DSC08210

 

After an exhausting walk ( ahem ) it was time to enjoy some good, and healthy, food. nomnomnom!

*

Ne een lange en vermoeiende wandeling ( ahum) is het tijd om te genieten van een lekkere, en gezonde, maaltijd. Genietennn!

 

DSC08211

 

Alright, now it’s time to get down to business! My extreme hair make over. I must admit I was pretty nervous about how it was going to turn out after having such ‘safe’ hairdo’s the past few years. The hairstylists did make me feel a lot better and confident about my ‘radical’ choice. That definitely helped alot to push me over the edge.

*

Ok, en nu is het hoog tijd voor het volgende, mijn extreme hair make over. Ik moet toegeven dat ik behoorlijk nerveus was, ik had geen idee hoe dit bij mij uit zou pakken. Zeker niet na zoveel ‘veilige’ kapsels te hebben gehad de afgelopen jaren. De haarstylisten spraken wel bemoedigende woorden over mijn ‘radicale’ keuze, dit zorgde er zeker voor dat mijn laatste twijfels werden weggenomen.

 

DSC08215

DSC08219

 

We decided to go for a rich dark brown with a small hint of a reddish shine. Because, why not make it a little bit extra extreme ;P

 

*

 

We besloten voor een diep bruine kleur te gaan met een warm ietsjes rode gloed. Want, waarom zou ik er niet voor kiezen om het nog een tikje extremer te maken ;P

 

 

keunemakeover

 

 

Aaaaand, this is the result!! My hairstylist put in some amazing work to make my hair look this amazing. At first I wasn’t quite sure if I made a huge mistake or not, lol. But after a few hours I started to get used to it, and a day later I even loved it! And I still do. haha, yay!

 

*

 

Ennnn, dit is het eindresultaat!! Mijn haarstylist heeft absoluut haar best gedaan om mijn haar er zo geweldig uit te laten zien! Ik moet toegeven dat mijn eerste gedachte was ” Wat heb ik mezelf aangedaan?! ”.  Maar na een paar uur raakte ik wel gewend aan mijn nieuwe aangezicht. En een dag later vond ik het zelfs super leuk! En nog steeds, yay!!

Tia Maria, Limited Grazia edition

1P8B1666

 

Tia Maria heeft samen met Grazia een mooie limited edition fles gelanceerd, om te vieren dat Grazia al 10 jaar bestaat. Het blik waarin deze bijzondere fles geleverd wordt ziet er bijna te prachtig uit om open te maken. Ik werd er in ieder geval al erg enthousiast van!

*

To celebrate Grazia’s 10 year anniversary, Tia Maria launched an amazing limited edition bottle. Because of the packaging of this special bottle, it was almost a shame to open it. It definitely catches your eye straight away!

Dit recept heb ik zelf een aantal keer geprobeerd en ook met veel succes geïntroduceerd op feestjes met vrienden en vriendinnen. Zeker een aanrader om eens te proberen/ te serveren op de aankomende feestdagen ( of voor de echte party animals onder ons, op een saaie zondagavond bijvoorbeeld ).

*

Because the delicious Tia Maria is known to be a favorite of mine, I’ve been asked to share one of my favorite cocktail recipe’s with you guys! Of course I wouldn’t dream of turning down an uppertunity like that, so I didn’t have to think twice.

I’m definitely a big fan of cocktails, a true expert, one might say ;P. So you can imagine a new favorite of mine has to be pretty darn good for me to love it. I’ve tried and served this cocktail to friends on a few party’s and it was an absolute hit. A good tip to try for yourself in the upcoming Holidays for sure ( or for the true party hardy’s on a boring sunday night ) !

Naturally, this equals a night to remember. So grab your chance to score of one these bottles quickly before it’s too late!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Review

Maybelline color tattoo review

 

Hi loves!!

 

Introducing to you a few favorites from the  Maybelline Color Tattoo  line. Maybelline claims it is the best longwear eyeshadow ever (!) with the most intense colors. It has a gel texture for a smooth and easy application.
The colors are created with the so called ”hot-pour” system, all of the ingredients are first heated and mixed while they are in a liquid state. This is the secret to the intensity and formula of the colour tattoo shades.

They currently have 10 different shades available and I’m testing 4 of them for my blog!

 

 

Hier zijn een paar persoonlijke favorieten van de Maybelline Color Tattoo  lijn. Maybelline beweert dat dit de beste en langsthoudende (!) oogschaduw ooit is met de meest intense kleuren. De gel textuur zorgt voor een makkelijke manier van aanbrengen. De kleuren zijn gemaakt met een nieuw systeem ”hot-pour” dit houdt in dat alle ingrediënten eerst verwarmd worden en vervolgens als ze vloeibaar zijn worden gemengd. Dit is het geheim voor de formule en intensiteit van de colour tattoo kleuren.

 

Momenteel zijn er 1o kleuren beschikbaar en ik test 4 verschillende voor mijn blog!

 

maybelline color tattoo review

 

The colors in order as pictured above are: 24K Gold, Metallic Pomegranate, Eternal Silver and Timeless Black. – De Kleuren zijn in volgorde van de foto: 24K Gold, Metallic Pomegranate, Eternal Silver and Timeless Black.

 

Maybelline Color tattoo review

 

And this is what they look like on my skin. Aas you can see they look quite intense already and I’ve only applied one layer. I used a small angle brush for the application, it did go on really smooth and effortless. The Timeless black is the only matte colour of the bunch so you could also use that as a regular eyeliner. That gave me the idea to apply all four colours as an eyeliner to show the diversity of this eyeshadow.

En zo zien ze eruit op mijn huid. Zoals je ziet zijn ze al vrij intens terwijl ik hier maar 1 laagje heb aangebracht. Dit heb ik met een kleine angle brush gedaan, hiermee ging het door de gel textuur inderdaad moeiteloos.De Timeless black is de enige matte kleur die ertussen zit, je zou deze dus ook kunnen gebruiken als een eyeliner.Dat gaf me het idee om ze allemaal als een eyeliner aan te brengen om zo ook de diversiteit van deze oogschaduw te laten zien.

 

 

maybelline colour tattoo review

 

For these looks I  used Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow wiz in Brunette for my brows and her Tamanna Palette ( created by MUA Dressyourface, Tamanna Roashan) for the eyeshadows as a base to show you guys the difference in effect these colors can have on your eyes,

Voor deze looks heb ik de Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow wiz in Brunette gebruikt voor mijn wenkbrauwen en de Tamanna Palette ( bedacht door de visagiste Dressyourface, Tamanna Roashan) voor de oogschaduw. Dit heb ik als basis gebruikt om jullie het effect van de verschillende kleuren te laten zien.

 

 

 

I also did a little test and left the stripes on my hand and went on with my day as usual, I was doing the dishes, took a shower, went to bed and took another shower in the morning. Up until my second shower they stayed in place and looked almost the same as if I just applied them. I can imagine if you didn’t take a shower, like if you were going out somewhere the color would most definitely last the entire night and even 24 hours if you wanted to.

The Metallics are great and I’m a huge fan! The Timeless black could have been more intense, but surprisingly it did last the longest out of all the colours I tried.

 

Would I recommend the Maybelline Colour tattoo? : Yes! No doubt about it, passed the test with flying colours! It is also a budget friendly product compared to other similar products that are available at the moment.

 

 

Ik heb ook een testje gedaan en heb de kleuren die ik op mijn hand had aangebracht gewoon laten zitten en ging verder met mijn dag zoals ik normaal zou doen. Ik heb de afwas gedaan, heb een douche genomen, ben gaan slapen en heb nog een douche genomen ‘s morgens toen ik weer wakker was. Tot aan de tweede douche bleven alle kleuren gewoon zitten, weliswaar iets vervaagd maar bijna alsof ik het net had opgebracht. Ik kan me dus voorstellen als je geen douche neemt tussendoor zoals ik dat het prima de hele nacht blijft zitten als je uitgaat en zelfs langer als je dat zou willen, de 24 uur redt je dan denk ik makkelijk.

De Metallic kleuren zijn geweldig, ik ben fan! De Timeless black had iets intenser gekund naar mijn smaak maar verrassend genoeg bleef het wel het langste zitten van alle kleuren die ik heb getest.

 

Zou ik je de Maybelline Colour tattoo dus aanraden? : Zeker weten! Er is geen twijfel over mogelijk, dit product heeft de test erg goed doorstaan en is ook nog eens goed betaalbaar vergeleken met andere vergelijkbare producten die op dit moment beschikbaar zijn.

Fullips lip enhancer Review, does it really work?

IMG_0898

 

Hi Lovesss! So today I tried Fullips lip enhancers for the first time. Keep reading for my personal experience with this product for fuller lips!

Who doesn’t want bigger and more plump looking lips? So when I read about this product for the first time I almost thought it was a prank and this product couldn’t really exist. Too good to be true right?
But then I came accross the owner of Fullips on instagram and she offered me the chance to try this for myself.

The kit you see above is what I received in the mail 🙂 It includes three different shapes of Fullips lip enhancers, a small toothbrush, a dark brownred lip liner and a rose pinkish shade of lipstick.

 

fullips enhancer

 

This is how it works!

As you can see there is a large round shape, a Medium oval shape and a small oval shape to fit several types of lips. It’s a small sort of cup you put over your lips and by sucking air in you ”seal” that cup to your face and create a suction that will draw more blood to your lips. That will help to get plumper lips in a few minutes.

When your lips are already quite full or big it’s best to use the large round Fullips enhancer, that’s the shape that works the best for me.When you have thinner lips and a wide mouth it’s best to use the medium oval size this size is also perfect for creating more fullness on the lips where it’s needed most ( like if you only want a bigger top lip). The small oval one can be used for more targeted areas where you want extra fullness.

 

Step 1: Brush you lips with the small toothbrush first to make them nice and smooth. Then place the desired shape over your lips, relax your lips and gently suck bits of air out of the cup ( light suction). When you feel that the cup stays in place keep suction for about 30 seconds. Then check to see if you have reached the fullness that you like.

 

This picture below is the before pic:

beforefullips

 

Step :2  As you can see I’m using the large round Fullips lip enhancer. I repeated the suction for 30 seconds about four times. Which comes down to about 2 minutes.

 

This picture below is during using the Large Round Fullips enhancer:

fullips lip enhancer

 

Step 3: Check if you are satisfied with the result. Do bare in mind not to go all crazy the first time when you use this product, if you suck too hard it CAN cause light bruising as you are drawing blood to your lips each time you keep suction. So be careful! 🙂

 

On this picture below is after using the enhancer:

afterfullips

 

Step 3: After plumping your lips apply a lipstick or moisturiser. You can also use a lip liner to make your lips look even fuller by overdrawing your lips slightly above your natural lip line.

 

On the picture below I used their lipliner and lipstick to make my lips look even fuller:

fulllipslipstick

 

 

Before & After, of course you can keep on repeating the steps if you want even fuller lips. This is the fullness I’m personally comfortable with 🙂

beforefullips afterfullips

 

So what do I think? Does it really work?

Short answer: Yes! Why? Because it actually created fuller and plumper lips like it promises. My lips stayed fuller for about two hours. The more you will use this trick the longer it will last but I would say the effect lasts about three hours. When you’re not a fan of plastic surgery of lip injections this is definitely a great product for you to try!

 

Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you have any questions!

You can order yours and get more info on: www.fullips.com

Clip in Bangs from Luxury for Princess

Hello Lovelies!

 

Here is a review for clip in bangs from Luxury for Princess.

I have to say sorry first for not posting more regular I’ve been really busy lately! But if you follow me on instagram  or facebook you will see more of my work!

Having said that, let’s get on with it!  I’ve always wanted to try this hairstyle, so I am very excited about these clip in bangs!
When you open the package, this is what it looks like ( beneath). It has three clips attachted like a triangle. You clip the top one firmly on the crown of your head and the other two on the sides of your hair. If you want you can secure it even better with a couple of bobby pins but it doesn’t  really move or slide once you’ve clipped it in.

luxury for princess-clip-in-bang
I am wearing the color ‘Chocolate brown’. It’s a perfect match to my hair color, but if it’s not a perfect match to yours you can always dye them. They are made from natural hair and available in 11 colors. so there should be one available close to your color.

 

clip-in-bangs-luxury-for-princess

 

And this is what they look like! It felt a little strange having bangs in three seconds but it’s definitely a better way to change your hairstyle without cutting your own locks. What do you think? Does this look good on me? 😛

I would definitely recommend these clip in bangs if you are thinking about cutting your hair and want to be sure if it suits you. Or it could be convenient if you would just like to try something new. I tried them again today wearing a high bun, this hairstyle has been seen a lot and is very popular with the celebs. I personally love it, I’m uploading this look to my instagram later today!

If you would like to try them check out www.luxuryforprincess.com  . They are € 39,95 ( 54$ or £32 ) don’t forget to use my code ‘Linda’ at checkout for  a great discount ( € 10, 14$ or £8 ). They ship world wide 🙂

 

Thanks for reading and have a great day!!

Make-up studio nailpolish swatches S/S 2014

Hi lovelies!

Make-up studio is one of my favorite brands of make-up products. They have amazing quality and I just fall in love everytime I walk in to their shop in my current home town The Hague. Their nailpolishes are no exception!

They have a few new nailpolish lines for S/S 2014 ( spring/ summer) and I would love to introduce you guys to a few of the hottest colors available! ( If you notice the brown marks on my finger, that is Henna I had done for a wedding last week 🙂 )

First off is the ‘Club Tropicana’ collection!

foto(1)

From left to right : Bloody Mary, Purple Haze, Grasshopper, Golden Daiquiri, Blue Lagoon and Tequila Sunrise.
In my opinion they are all quite bold statement colors, perfect to spice up a casual outfit or to match a funkier style. My favorites have to be Bloody Mary and Blue Lagoon, but they are all so pretty! Blue Lagoon and Golden Daiquiri are metallic polishes, also an ongoing trend in the make-up industry.  A huge plus is that all of the polishes pictured above are so easy to apply and the opacity is great. I’ve applied two coats to get this result.

 

Next up is the ‘Power Flower’ line.

foto(2)

On the left side: Mint Spirit, Tiger Lily and Purple Cosmos. On the right: Bamboo Bush and Peony Pleasure. When you see all these beautiful colors together it makes me think of a flower bouquet, gorgeous. The opacity is great and also easy to apply. Bamboo bush ( one of my fav’s as well) has a bit of shimmer in it, really pretty in person. Unfortunately I couldn’t capture that with my camera.

 

Last but not least, the ‘Seaside’ line.

foto(3)

From left to right: The Hamptons, St. Tropez, St. Barth and Capri. I’m still wearing Capri and added another coat since it’s a shimmery, more transparent polish. The rest of the polishes are more dense and the opacity is the same as all polishes above. This line really does a good job reminding me of a beautiful Island holding a cocktail and just relaxing, lol.

Overall I think Make-up studio has done a great job creating these colors and I think they will be a big succes! Make- up studio has stores and selling points in over 60 countries around the world. Check out www.make-upstudio.com for the one closest to you.

Sapphire Green look

Hi Sweethearts!!

 

Here’s another inspirational look from me. I created this look inspired by the beautiful tikka ( Indian headpiece) that the Modest Collection designed for me. Such an honour am I’m so happy with it!
I was going for something ‘different’ and not a standard Asian type look. Hope you like it!!

 

sapphire green make up

On my face: Shaped with Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit, Motives Cosmetics foundation ‘Vanilla cream’ with ‘Eclipse’ blusher.
Lips:  ‘Nude’ lipstick with ‘Amazing’ lipgloss also from Motives.

Brows: Done with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in ‘Medium Ash’.
Eyeshadow: Make Up Studio ‘Ivory Gold’ on the entire moving eyelid, ‘Busted’ from the Urban Decay Naked Palette 1 in the crease with ‘Virgin’ from that same palette on the brow bone for a beautiful highlight.
Green Liner: A gel liner in different shades from the Sephora Beauty box, a limited edition last year, I don’t know if they still sell those!
Lashes: Town of lashes ‘Lola’ with House of lashes ‘Darling’ bottom lashes ( love themmm! ).

And another full face pic with my eyes down, I didn’t expect to like this look as much as I did when I was done. While creating it I almostttt took all of the eyemake up off because I thought the green liner was too much, haha. I’m glad I didn’t!!

 

Check my girl @themodestcollection out on instagram, she sells amazing pieces she designs and creates herself. They are light weight which I love because you can wear them with every type of hairstyle, a huge plus!

 

Have a beautiful day lovelies!!

Loavies is an online webshop that ships internationally to most countries in the world, so if you see something you like keep checking the website for when it’s available 😀

Underneath I will post some pics of the super cute content from this box…

 

loaviestshirtnecklace

First off this t-shirt that has an cute print that says ‘ISCREAM, iceschream Miami’, lol. Plus this statement necklace would be fun to match it with!

 

 

loavieszonnebril

These sunnies are actually my facorite type of sunglasses around haha, they are probably the only one’s that actually compliment my face 😛 Most sunglasses don’t like me..

 

 

loavieshorlogesieraden

Now check out this watchhh. kind of getting the Rolex feeling with this one, if only! 😛 This necklace is so cute I love the diamond shape of it and the chain is not too long so you can wear them above any type of shirt, perfect! These rings are just perfect to accesorize an outfit with, they are not too appearant but do complete any look you don’t want to over accesorize.  Great for summer!

 

 

loaviesjacket

This jacket though! The texture of the material on the front is a nice touch and I personally love biker style jackets. They are so easy to combine with all types of outfits, also it can give a girly outfit a little edge to it!

 

 

loaviesnagellak

Last but not least: Pastel colored nailpolishes in fun colors! I already tried all of them today haha.. I tried the lavender color on one hand and  on the other it got a little crazy and I ended up creating easter nails!

 

 

easternailsloavies copy

easternailslindastephanie

 

The nailpolish is semi-matte, not too shiny on it’s own, covers really well even after one coat. On the second image I added a clear topcoat.  As you can see all of the colors are quite bright and warm, the lavender in the top pic is the only one with a cooler undertone.

 

Let me know what you think! Check out www.loavies.com to check out their entire Spring collection! Most of the Summer items are yet to come, but definitely worth the wait!

Underneath is a shoplet where you can easily buy your own Loavies items!! 😀

Artsy Make up, runway inspired!

art2smaller

 

Hi Lovelies!

Here is a look that is different from the looks I normally do. But I believe make up is art and therefore you can experiment all you like!
This look is inspired by runway looks that I came across while visiting several fashion webpages. Like the images beneath..

 

image                            artinspi

 

I like being different sometimes and try experimental looks like this with my own twist to it!

 

 

art3smaller

artsmaller

art4smaller

 

I used Motives cosmetics ‘Antique Gold’ and applied it ( wet) with an angle brush to create the ‘square’ shape and used a blending brush to apply it all over the lid and towards the outer corner. I swiped it lightly from the outer corner towards the temples. After that I applied ‘Betrayal’ a beautiful purple shade from the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette to create a liner, also with an angle brush. After that I used a clean blending brush to apply more of the same color in the crease and blend it with the gold a little bit. I also drew a line with the same purple color underneath.

The lashes are from House of lashes ‘Au Naturale’ ( beneath) and ‘Blendy’ ( above). For a playfull effect that compliments this look.

Of course I wouldn’t wear this outside but for a photoshoot or carnaval it’s a great look to stand out from the crowd ;)!
