Well, Hello Summer 2017!!!

With the dawn of June, comes the expectation of summer around the corner and I for one am excited. They say summer bodies are made in the winter.

Now I’ve got you all pumped, today I’ll be spilling the tea on how to get yourselves ready for the season ahead, top to toe.

Face
Let’s face it, getting your face in fabulous order is a surefire way to prepare for Spring. 10 Minute Mask from Origins is an absolute must for taking control of your complexion, combating skin problems and banishing impurities, in a simple step. Masks like this are a really effective and fast acting way to begin the transformation process. Also, I usually pamper my face by washing it properly at least for 15 minutes each time I go to bath with a face cleaning soap, not just your usual bathing soap from Nivea, Dove, A&H, Kruidvat.

Less is definitely more when it comes to makeup. For that summertime transition, put down the brown palettes and say hello to pink flirty colours. Aim for lightweight formulas that add a blush of colour to the face.  I usually use lipstick from Loreal, Mac, Ysl, and Dior. These are great brands and their lipstick last very long and are very pretty.

Body
Goodbye sallow – hello glow
To achieve a super indulgent extra radiance boost, the Pure Gold Collagen 10-day-programme is simply amazing. This beauty supplement aims to fight the first signs of ageing from within, by aiding in collagen production in the deepest layers of your skin. This leaves it looking firmer, plump, brighter and more youthful.

For a gradual boost, I’m a huge advocate of exfoliating and bath salts like the Dr Kniep body scrub, body scrub from Lush, or from the The body shop is a must have!!! are a relatively easy, low abrasive way to do this. They work by removing dead skin to increase cell turnover, which releases the inner glow.

Scent
For perfume, I suggest going a little more understated than normal this summer. One million from Paco Robanne is great, you may use parfumes from Ysl, Hugo boss, Gucci Guilty and dior are great perfumes for summer. If you are really on tigh budget and cnt afford to buy perfumes from Douglas, Ici Parijs, Mooi Parfumerie in The Netherlands, You may want to visit Parfum Star in Hoogstrat Rotterdam for very affordable perfumes or  go online and shop at parfumenia!!!.

Hair
There’s something about the warmer weather that often makes us ladies want to switch up our hair. Experimenting with semi-permanent colour on extensions is my thing, so for those of you with colour treated hair – like me – you’ll know that maintenance is everything.

So there you have it, my top to toe readiness suggestions for the upcoming season – watch out Summer we’re coming for you!

Please check out my inspirational video below on how you can style yourself this season.

I love you

Outfit Diary – Spain!

Last month, Hubby, the kids and I booked a last minute trip to Mallorca, as the last few weeks in The Netherlands have been cold and rainy. It’s a very unusual weather for this time of year in The Netherlands (based on my 5 year experience living here, haha!) *I still love you Holland* Yet I need my healthy dose of vitamin D. We chose Mallorca because we have already visited Greece last year, a few years ago and fell in love with the magical island. We may go back to Greece and eventually discover all the beautiful and unique islands it’s got to offer again.

Scroll down for outfit details. I hope the outfits inspires you! Most of the outfit I bought in Spain.

We flew with Brussel Airline. Schiphol is also a nice airport in The Netherlands.

Stay beautiful!

Bikini Photo Session!

The obligatory bikini post is here, and I knew it had to be with these beautiful bikini I got from V&D   because it is so pretty and matches the unreal views. To add to this…no colour editing was needed, honestly, the sky is actually just so blue, the sea just so perfect, and the sun is great at blowing blemishes out of an image!

When given the opportunity to take time to think, read, and develop yourself mentally, take it. Not everyday rush, rush, some days…. Peace and serenity.

xoxo
