Painting a Galaxy | VIDEO

In honor of my 100th post, I decided to do something a little bit different and special. I was feeling relatively artsy and I wanted to make a video of it. This is my first ever video I made, so it's definitely not the best! However, I am planning on making more videos, fashion related as well, so keep an eye out for that (:




Thank you so much for watching and reading! I really hope to improve my filming and editing skills in the future. But then again, everyone has to start somewhere, am I right? :D

Dainty Pink | Nail Art

I was feeling like painting my nails today and I quite liked the outcome. This nail art is really simple, yet dainty. For the base colour I used Catrice #37 'The Effect Maker', which is this gorgeous dusty pink semi-neutral polish. The white detailing on my ring fingers is Sephora by OPI 'A-ha! Moment'. On the rest of my fingers I placed a small silver rhinestone at the bottom of the nails, close to the cuticles.

SUPPRESSED BY JUDGEMENT & A LACK OF MOTIVATION

It's been roughly two months since I uploaded my last post which is in one world unacceptable. Have you ever had the feeling you want to do so many things, but you just can't find the time for it? Well, that's basically what I've been feeling for probably the last year. There are so many things I'd like to do and share. The two things that are holding me back most is time and, yes, myself. I'm not sure where it's coming from, because I definately do have several ideas for new projects, but I just can't get myself to it. Am I not motivated enough to do things I love to do? Because that sound quite silly to me.

unmotivated

I'm writing this just to say that I am actually alive. My finals are over and right now I'm just waiting for the results. And I have to admit, the waiting part is probably the worst. I'm filled with a feeling of nervosity and anxiety since I'm not even sure I did well enough on the exams. This might be another reason for my lack of motivation. Whenever I try to do something, half-way through I'll stop because I'm getting to nervous. The last few weeks I basically haven't been doing anything productive. To be honest I'm at the point now where I'm getting quite annoyed with myself.

I'm slowly getting out of cycle where 1 I would do nothing at all, 2 I would get a great idea and 3 I would put it off because I think I wouldn't have enough time to create it and get back to 1. I started getting interested again in things I haven't done in quite some time and blogging is definitely one of them.

I also came to the realization that it doesn't matter what other people think of you. I've always been quite the type of person who would stay as much on the background as possible to avoid any unwanted attention. When I started this blog I tried to keep it a secret to pretty much everyone I knew. I was really afraid to get judged by something I like to do and, in fact, I still am a little bit to this day. Not necessarily just my blog, but also me personally: I hardly ever post something on facebook, twitter, instagram and all the other social media. I realised it really doesn't matter what other people think of you. It's your life and you should live it as you would like to.

I wasn't planning on making this post this long, but I'd like to thank you if you actually read it this far. It really means a lot to me. If you ever feel suppressed by people around you for doing the things you like, don't be. You have the ability to create so many beautiful things in this world and you shouldn't be held back just because of other's opinions.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

BornPrettyStore | Review

Hey everyone! It's been a long time and I finally gave myself some time to sit down and write something. A little while ago a company called BornPrettyStore contacted me asking if I would be interested in writing a review for them. "Sure!", I said and not long after that they gave me the opportunity to choose a product to review from a selection they put together for me.


A few days ago I got the package in the mail. On the 27 of February BornPrettyStore told me they would arrange the shipment, so I'm not entirely sure when the product was actually sent to me. The shipping took aproximately a little over one month, which is definitely not that bad considering the company is located in Asia.
Don't you think my freckles just match perfectly with the design? Haha
Ignore the scar on the right of the photo though
I chose to review one of their women’s watches. The watch was really well packed, impossible to brake in the few layers of foam. There is nothing worse than receiving a product being messed up due to poor pakaging and handling. Especially if you had to wait a little bit longer for it to arrive.
The concept of the wrist watch itself is really simple. This particular one doesn't have a clasp or anything like that. Basially you wrap it around your wrist and make a knot. The fun thing about this is the freedom in wairing it. You can tie it just the way you want, so it probably never becomes boring. The floral design on the fabric makes it a lot more bold and fun.


The wristband is made of a really nice fabric. It is pretty soft and it is the right thickness. Because of this it feels comfortable while wairing and it's not going to cut your wrist at any time. The bracelet watch also came with batteries (or one battery) already, which is great. It may seem obvious, but I actually received a watch without a battery once.



So in conclusion there is absolutely nothing negative a can think of this product. The handling and shipping is good and the quality of the watch itself isn't that bad either. The prices on bornprettystore.com are awesome and they have a wide collection raging from phone cases to nail art supplies to jewelry. The link to this specific product is here.

Because the people at BornPrettyStore are really nice people, they gave me this coupon code to share right here so you can get a 10% discount and free shipping on your next purchase.


So have fun searching around the webshop! If you do plan on making a purchase, do not forget to use the coupon code. If you have any ideas on how to wair this watch or what to wear it with, do not hesitate to leave it in the comments below.
