BEAUTYGLOSS PARTY 2013



The Beautygloss party 2013 was amazing! The party was on saturday April 27th, hosted by the beauty blogger Mascha, she looked stunning! her blog is very big here in Holland (click the link to check out her blog!) 
So first things first, my three friends and i went to Rotterdam centraal - to get some delicious coffee at starbucks - and ofcourse, to get the train to Amsterdam (where the beautygloss party was held. Once we had arrived in Amsterdam we went to see if there was already a line, and there was, so we decided to join the rest of the other girls. All the girls were all dolled up, wearing heels, fancy dresses, etc. The dress code was "Happy girls are the prettiest" by Audrey Hepburn. I wore a pearl necklace, pearl earrings, black, lace peplum shirt, black skinnies and black wedges. I totally forgot to take an ootd that day, but i do have some pictures with the dutch delebs where you can see what i wore. 
The party itself was held in a big building called 'Beurs van Berlage'. There were pink ballons, a big stage, make up, hair and nail counters, a little wax bar, etc. One of the first things we did, when we got in was buying a glossybox. They were only €7,50,  instead of €14,95. After that we looked around bought some make up, watched Mascha and others presenting all sorts of stuff and giving make up and hair tips on stage,  ate Ben & Jerry's, etc. We even got to take pictures and meet some famous Dutch people. 
At the end of the party, everyone got a goodiebag, filled with products, magazines, etc. (the products were in this huge Douglas bag). Something that i found kind of funny: in every goodiebag there was a bracelet with a quote, what was mine?! "Fashions fade, style is eternal" - YSL.  The same quote that's on my blog under the FGW logo! 
I thought this was sooo funny and a weird coincidence, that out of all the quotes, i got that one!

 I've bought such a pretty sleek blush, so you can expect a review later this week. I also purchased two lovely nail polishes and a glossybox - which i had already mentioned). 

Overall, it was such a fun day, my friends and i had a blast. We will definitely be going again next year!


Goodies

 The goodiebag

 The Coca Cola keychain that i had forgot to put with the other products.

 The products in my glossybox - i did end up seeing that some products were missing.. but oh well, at least i didn't pay the full price for it.

 Nail polishes i've bought at the bg party!

My new love! Stay tuned for a review later this week.
With Mascha and her boyfriend Gregor

With Tom Sebastian, Mark van Eeuwen - isn't he handsome?! - Cynthia Schultz (also a beauty & lifestyle blogger) and the catwalk queen Mariana Verkerk! 

We also went to buy a lipstick at mac for my friend. When we went outside we saw Mariana! My first reaction: "OMG.. that's Mariana Verkerk!" "Yes, that's me!" she replied. she was so sweet, i really admire her work and what she has achieved. Ever since Holland's next top model started i would always watch and see her judge and give the models catwalk lessons, etc.
All the people we met were SO sweet and down to earth.

STREET STYLE || COBALT BLUE


COBALT BLUE 
You can easily make a statement by wearing this color in your outfit. I love this cobalt blue color, although navy blue is more my thing, and i think my wardrobe agrees with me, since i have more navy colored clothing than cobalt. This gorgeous color compliments everyone, especially brunettes. It has been in style for a while now, and i still see it a lot. My twin sister wore a dress in this beautiful color to our school exam gala, prom - or however you want to call it - (that was last year in the summer). 
I personally love wearing brighter colors in the summer, but as you can see in the picture below, the girl is wearing a warm coat, so it's also a perfect color for fall/winter. I'm definitely a fan of this color, are you?

I apologize for the lack of posts.. I haven't been blogging much due my busy schedule. On monday my internship started and i've been busy and incredibly tired. The days are long (8.30 AM till 5.00 PM), i'm working hard and really doing my best. This weekend i'm going to the Beautygloss Party hosted by Mascha in Amsterdam, so excited! So keep an eye open next week for a blogpost about the BG party!

Love the coat and clutch.

The clutch is used as a statement piece, as you can see.

spring/summer 2013: NEON


NEON These colors really make me crave the summer! The spring is here and the summer is also getting closer, which means.. more color! In the wintertime a lot of people - including me - tend to wear darker colors and in the summer brighter colors, which makes complete sense. I feel like the winter was here forever, but it's finally spring! Yay! 
When it's spring i'm not completely comfortable wearing a lot of bright colors. I guess it's because i've been wearing darker colors for a long period of time. But when it's almost summer, i certainly like to wear a more obvious color! I can't wait for the summer to arrive, wear neon colored nailpolishes, bags, bracelets, etc. I'm not really into wearing neon t-shirts, shorts or anything.. it's a little too much for me, but do i like it on others though! I do see myself wearing neon accessories, it's more subtle that way. 


I love the look this satchel bag gives. It has a classic & chic look, but yet it's casual.



You can really make a statement with a neon colored bag; for example by wearing it with a neutral/subtle outfit.

FASHION ICON || OLIVIA PALERMO





OLIVIA PALERMO, the gorgeous fashionista. I think most people will recognize her from being a cast member of the reality television show The City. I absolutely love her style, she always looks so elegant and pretty. Since i first saw her on The City i've been obsessed with her style, she always, always looks great! 
She's not only an american socialite and an actress but also a model, which doesn't surprise me at all.. have you seen her bonestructure?! Amazing! 

Olivia Palermo has been in a relationship with Johannes Huebl since 2008. He's a model and so handsome! He has modeled for DKNY, Hogan , Hugo Boss, etc.

Spring & Summer 2013: METALLIC


METALLIC, It's a trend that i've been seeing more and more often. I have been seeing this trend in the clothing stores, on runways, fashion magazines, etc. The look that it gives your outfit is very sophisticated, futuristic and urban. I'm not the biggest fan of the metallic skirt, so i wouldn't wear it myself.. i do kind of like the metallic t-shirts, i could definitely see myself wearing a gold-metallic peplum shirt to a party or something!
I also like the metallic clutches, belts, hair accessories, etc. The metallic nails have also grown to be a big hit, i've been seeing them on tumblr and a lot of celebrities have been wearing them, like Rihanna and AnnaLynne McCord (actress, 90210).
