I've never been a huge fan of Primark. The store is always extremely crowded and I can never find nice clothes. But when I found out about their home department, I was quite surprised. In a good way.
Since I don't need any pillows/blankets/plaids/towels at the moment, I only bought some big vanilla scented candles and an accessory hanger (which was only available in hot pink, but I hung it on the inside of my closet, so that doesn't really matter), but when I need more I'll definitely be back. And skip the clothing department.

Dutch Vogue,

LITTLE SHOPLOG

3/28/2012 The Fashion Estate 24 Comments



Had a day off today, so I went shopping with my mum this morning and I finally bought the first issue of the Dutch Vogue. Also got the Glamour, a mascara (I told you in this post that I bought the non-waterproof version of my favorite mascara, but I started missing my old one), a lipstain from Catrice and hand salve from Vaseline.
I always wash my hands after applying sun protection on my face/body, because I don't like the sticky feeling that seems to stay for hours. But I do like hand salve, so this one (with SPF15) is perfect for me. Also, it smells super nice!

Oh and a tip for the dutch girls who read this: toen ik de mascara afrekende zag ik dat er 40% korting af ging! Deze korting geldt voor alle mascara's van MaxFactor, Rimmel en L'Oréal bij Kruidvat.

E-SHOPPING

3/22/2012 The Fashion Estate 43 Comments




I've been totally into online shopping last weeks, since I haven't been visiting any shopping mall for a long time and I really felt like buying new stuff. In the last picture you can see the damage so far (there's more to come, oops). The packages mainly include bags or jackets, the two small ones on top contain beauty products.
Anyway, I'm kinda in doubt about the jacket shown in the pictures above. To keep or not to keep?

Spent such a lovely afternoon on a terrace with Widya and her boy. Just enjoying the sun. And drinking tea, of course. Gosh, how I love fresh mint tea!

LIFE CHANGING

3/20/2012 The Fashion Estate 18 Comments


Some way the internet is having less troubles in the morning, so here I am, updating the blog at 6AM.

Last week has been life changing for me. In a small way, but still life changing.
First of all, I bought a mascara. A normal one. That sure is life changing for me, since I've been using waterproof mascara ever since I started using mascara. I always used the MaxFactor False Lash Effect mascara in waterproof, now I have the normal version of it. It's pretty much the same, only it rinses off much easier.
Second change of life is about my job. I've been working for almost 5 years at the same shop, and last week I quit. I still have another job, by the way.

Oh, and happy first day of spring!

TODAY

3/14/2012 The Fashion Estate 59 Comments






1) My best friend and I both got this bracelet from her mum last summer, after climbing Mont Gerbier, in France.
2) Bought this vanilla/cookies scented candle yesterday, mmm.
3) After two days full of sun, the sky turned cloudy again. I wore my favorite sweater and Levi's to stay warm.
4) This must be the most delicious green tea I've ever had. I can't explain what it tastes like, but it makes me think of spring.

Today I visited my grandpa, who turned 88. Happy birthday!
The rest of the day I spent cleaning my room (I have to do that very often, it's incredible how fast it gets messy), did some online shopping and enjoyed my mum's pumpkin-soup for dinner.

ICE FONDUE

3/12/2012 The Fashion Estate 54 Comments







When I woke up yesterday I found out the weather was great, so after a family brunch I went outside with my sister to shoot some pictures in the sun.
In the afternoon I had an ice fondue with my mum and sis at a nice restaurant in Rotterdam. Never had an ice fondue before actually, and I have to say it was quite funny. You get lots of chopped fruits that you have to dip into vanilla/chocolate/strawberry/tropical sauce and then put them in a bowl of nitrogen. Result: fruity ice cream pops. Yummy!

Two weeks of hard work, and suddenly it's over. Yesterday was the last show, but I'm already missing it. It's so weird don't having anything to do for the theatre project anymore, after being 24/7 busy working on it.
I really owe you my apology for the lack of posts during the past two weeks! To make it up with you a little, I'm showing you some pictures of what I've been up to. (Don't mind the bad quality, most pictures are taken with my phone.)

What are you looking at:
1) Me, preparing for the show
2) The beginning of the stage setting
3) Rehearsals (+ unfinished decor)
4) Decor
5,8) Parts of the show
6) The VJ office
7,10) Everybody brought (homemade) food everyday
9,11) My workplace 
12,13) I got a 'thank you gift' for my help, so sweet!

BB cream,

BBCREAMSHOP ORDER

3/02/2012 The Fashion Estate 27 Comments






I'm super sorry for my non activity, but I'm spending all my time working on the Video Project. And having three other jobs at the same time doesn't leave me enough time to update the blog.
Anyway, when I came home yesterday I found out a package I ordered the day before had already been delivered!
I ordered two products on www.bbcreamshop.eu: Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream en Etude House Missing U Lip Balm.
BB Cream (meaning: Blemish Balm Cream) is a product that actually was developed for people who had laser surgery. It was meant to cover up their scars and protect their sensitive skin at the same time. Now it's also sold as a beauty product for anyone who's searching for a nourishing facial cream that works as a foundation with medium coverage.
As I said, I bought one from the brand Missha and I have to say it's amazing. I always need the lightest tone of foundation, because my skin is kinda pale (especially during winter time). I ordered the BB cream in #21 and it matches my skin perfectly. So happy!
The lip balm is great too. It tastes like grapefruit and it comes in such a cute tin. And: proceeds from the sales will be donated to The Animal Protection Association! There are four different lip balms, all with another endangered animal on the tin. Etude House also has hand cream of the Missing U series. Check out the video underneath this post, it's super cute!

Well, as you can read, I'm so happy with my order! I can recommend bbcreamshop to all of you. Their service is great, the shipping costs are very low and they deliver super fast! Plus, they always add something extra to your package. I got five samples of different BB creams.
