Inspiring person

Ending on a bit of sad note, but for me the most inspiring person of 2017 was a little boy who’s name was Tijn. This boy put others before himself eventhough he was terminally ill.

Tijn raised over 2.5 million euros through painting nails for a fundraiser from Serious Request. And later another 1.2 million euros with his own line of nail polishes.

This boy just showed me how we all should be a little bit less selfish in life and start carring about others regardless of your own situation

I really felt so sad when I heard he passed away last July because of his illness. As a Dutch singer song writer wrote” you are a hero!”.

Writing about my most inspiring person for 2017 concludes my 2017 favorites!

Thumbs February Favorites

Thumbs February Favorites

Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

March has started and it is time for a very belated Thumbs February Favorites. This blog post contains some lifestyle and beauty faves. So I hope you will enjoy it !

Douglas Home Spa Balancing Shower Foam in Polynesian Dream.  

This just smells very Spa like and smells so clean. It is very hard for me to describe this fragrance but it smells sooo good.  So if you can get hold of this shower gel I would !

Essie For the Twill of It

This is just such an interesting polish. Sort of monochromatic. You can see different colors in it like blue’s,purple’s, greens and grey’s. It is just gorgeous and this polish  wears very well.

Cauliflower Rice

Side tracking a bit here but please bear with me. This is such a great alternative to rice if you don’t want any carbs for your dinner.  For example the cauliflower rice matches very well with a green vegetable curry.

Mac Face and Body Foundation in NC25

It is a nice light foundation that evens out the skin tone for a natural look . I have often gravitated to this foundation if I felt like wearing foundation.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar pallet 

Fave colours : White Chocolate, Marzipan  Strawberry  Bon Bon and Creme Brulee

MAC Strobe Cream

Just gives back a lot of luminosity to the skin. Your skin looks fresh,dewy and healthy and overall my makeup looks better.  But that is my just my opinion.

Booked Bali Trip 

 I cannot remember if I wrote about this before, but in 2 months time I am flying to Bali for a 16 day trip.  Whoop whoop! I have never been so far away  from home, but I am looking so forward to it. At the moment I have the time and freedom to travel and I am taking full advantage of that. My plan is to write some posts from Bali if I am disciplined  and if the Wifi agrees. So hopefully this happens.

I hope you all  enjoyed this post and as always feel free to leave a comment.

Until next post friends!

Thumbs June Favorites

Thumbs June Favorites

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

June faves

June has passed and gone and it is time for  Thumbs June Favorites. I must say June did not give me a lot of new faves , but the things I found were pretty sweet. Don’t get me wrong I am still loving a lot of the same things from last month. Such as  my Make up Revolution high lighter in golden lights and the Make up Revolution Bronzer Palette. So if you want to read  about Mays favorites click here. But for this month lets get this post started.

Makeup

  • MAC Velvet Teddy – What can I say, it is just a beautiful nude color and you can just wear this color any time. Timeless and classic!

Lifestyle 

  • Pathe unlimited card –  If you like going to the cinema and you go often, then this  might be something for you ( just for Dutch peeps ) !   I pay 19 euros a month,  and pay 1.5o extra if I want to see the film in 3D . Since I subscribed to Pathe Unlimited I sometimes go 4 times a week to the Cinema. This card is such good value for money. Also you get 10%  discount on drinks and snacks in the cinema.
  • Film Me before you – Such a good film! It had a good story line  even though it was very  sad  at some times, but the film also contained  a lot of humor. I really want to read the book now. Anyone read the book?
  • Film Deadpool – If you like Marvel Comics, most likely you will like this one. This film was soooo funny. Maybe a little rude at some time but it suited the film. Also I thought the soundtrack was BOM !
  • Penny Dreadfull- Best season ever! Unfortunately and sadly the last season.  I sort of had the feeling how this show would end and I was correct. Still it was such a good season with such a good story line. I have already re-watched  several episode I just can’t get enough.  If you are interested you can view the trailer below.Trailer Penny Dreadful season 3

Fashion

  • Dresses – I just have been into dresses lately. To be honest I look a lot better in dresses. My figure just looks better  in a dress. and it is summer now so it is nice to wear. Also I am incorporating a lot of bright color which makes my skin look more alive and not so deadly.

I hope you all liked this post.  For more updates follow me via Bloglovin or Twitter. And as always feel free leave to leave a comment.

Until next post friends!

What I got for my birthday

What I got for my birthday

Hi everybody,dear readers and loyal subbies,

Finally I am going to share what I got for my birthday.  Wieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I just love reading and seeing these sort of blogs/ videos,  therefor I wanted to post this one. I really had a good day and felt really spoiled. If you want to read what I did for my birthday click here.

Let the sharing started!

 

Avanca Wireless Headset– I just love this gift. I love listening to music whether I am commuting, working or going to the gym. Because I listen to music a lot, it is important too me to have a good quality and functional headset.  Also I noticed the one I had was getting a little tired. So I thought lets put this on my wishlist. And I got it!

The reason that I wanted a wireless headset was that I did not want any wires running in front of me. With the wired headset I usually would pull my headset out  of my ears when I was rowing. Very annoying. These headsets just feel so lightweight and they look quite fashionable in my opinion and they have a good sound quality to them.

Hunkemoller giftcards – Hunkemoller is one of the biggest chains in the Netherlands to buy bra’s and as I am in need to get some new ones, this is very greatly appreciated. Is it just me, but buying bra’s is quite expensive. The woes of being a woman.

MAC Experience – This was so much fun!! My sis got me this present. So for an hour the MAC makeup artist did my face. She started with some questions such as skin type what I liked etc. Also this deal included I could get € 60 worth of product. Which is pretty sweet! This is such great gift and a great way to try out products.

Amazon gift cards– Who does not like a Amazon gift card. You can choose whatever you like. I am still contemplating what to get. But I am sure I will figure it out any time soon. Or I will just collect these cards and then do a combined splurge.

Necklace and Bracelets – I already showed this one in a previous post. I got a 0pretty necklace and bracelets from my friend J!  Want to read about this post click here.

Stationary plus matching post- its– This is a very useful pressie.  I can use this one to write some thank you notes. And the post its are very useful to leave some reminder notes. Such as must take out garbage !!  I love the prints on the stationary very pretty.

I hope you all liked this post and thank you for reading. As always feel free to leave a comment!  Until next post friends!
