Fight the Cellulite!!!

Hi hi! Today I am going to tell you guys something about my worst (non-human) enemy. Cellulite! I have been fighting this monster for over 2 years and I am starting to defeat it. I wanted to share some tips and tricks on defeating this monster with you. I wont be able to post a blogpost Tuesday so I am writing you guys a very big one today!

First of all, drink a lot of water! Not just 2 glasses a day but a LOT more! I think everyone who already searched for Cellulite remedies has found this tip everywhere. Water is just so good for your body. It is good for your whole body and you feel a lot more healthy when you drink more and more water every day.

I also try to do some more exercise. You need to do some more legwork people. Go for a walk, a run or walk up and down the stairs in your house a few times. This gets blood flowing in your legs and it will definitely help your legs fight the cellulite. Try to do this every day! It doesn’t have to be a big workout but just keep moving and you will see the difference.

You can also do some exercises for your legs. I normally do the exercises from Blogilates on youtube. They are very good and you can feel that it’s working while your training. PLUS you can just do it at home. It’s that simple!

I also try to massage my legs from time to time because this also gets your blood flowing and it wil certainly help you get rid of the ugly bumps in your skin. There is one product that I like to use in summer for my legs and I really get the feeling that it works BUT you need to put it on every day otherwise it wont have any effect. Once you stop using this, your cellulite will come back. It is a really nice product but it isn’t a permanent solution. You really need to drink more water and exercise more if you want to get rid of it forever. The product has 2 kinds of creams. A daycream and a nightcream. The products are by VICHY. After using this cream for 14 days (every day!) you really see the result!! Let’s first talk about the night cream.

vichy_cdnight_01The Night cream has a blue-ish color and it smells really nice. 5% of the cream exists out of caffeine. Caffeine is really good for your skin and you can really see that in the results.You really have to massage it in for a few minutes to get a better effect!

The Day cream bottle is very cool. It also contains of 6 % Caffeine and it is a fast acting 14 day serum to get rid of cellulite.

These creams are very nice and I definitely recommend them to you guys but as I said before they aren’t going to get rid of your cellulite. They are going to make your cellulite a lot less visible but that’s it.

I also try to scrub my legs with COFFEE SCRUB every week. I make my COFFEE SCRUB myself. It’s very easy to make and you don’t need a lot of ingredients :

  • 5 spoons of coffee ground
  • 3 spoons of brown sugar
  • 2 spoons of coconut oil

Just mix everything together into a creamy mixture et voila!! Try to rub it in as long as you can to get a better effect and try to do this once every week.

There are also some foods that you can eat which can help you get rid of your cellulite :

  • bananas
  • chilli
  • ginger root
  • pineapple
  • sweet potatoes
  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • green tea
  • salmon
  • garlic
  • cucumber
  • cider vinegar (put some cider vinegar and lemon drops in a glass of water every day!)

The key to getting rid of cellulite is HARD WORK. This is a monster that you have to fight with everything you have. If you are really serious about getting rid of it, you need to combine all of your forces and methods to get the best results. I swear to you that you will see results but you can’t give up. Cellulite is a bitch and it’s a never ending fight. Just try to be healthier on all levels. If you get rid of it eventually, you can’t go back to old habits because it will re-appear. Getting rid of Cellulite means changing your life a little bit for the better. A lot of water, A lot of exercise, A lot of massaging/ scrubbing and A lot of healthy foods will give you A BEAUTIFUL PAIR OF LEGS FOR DAAAYZ!

These are my tips against the BIG MONSTER. I hope they helped a little and that I inspired you to join the fight that 70 % of women are fighting every day.

CHRISTMAS LUSH HAUL | 12 Days of Xmas #Day12

“On the Twelfth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Twelve Drummers Drumming
Eleven Pipers Piping
Ten Lords a Leaping
Nine Ladies Dancing
Eight Maids a Milking
Seven Swans a Swimming
Six Geese a Laying
Five Golden Rings
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
And a partridge in a pear tree”

Tonight’s Christmas Eve!!! Yay, It’s Christmas in a few hours! The only sad thing about this is that it means that my 12 days of Christmas are almost over. This is the last blogpost. This is day 12 and that means that after this blogpost, Twelve days of Christmas is officially over. (crawls back into the darkest corner of the room and starts crying). But, there is still one more blogpost right here for you guys to read and you can always re-watch or re-read some of the things I made for you guys this year.

This is the day that I am going to talk to you about all of the Christmas Lush products I have already tried out this year!!!!! The most exciting post to end a very fun 12 days of Christmas. Let’s just begin with this amazing lush adventure.

SHOOT FOR THE STARS : BATHBOMB 

This bathbomb. There are just no freaking words for it. What The FCK. This is the best bathbomb I have ever seen. It has sparkles, blue colors, amazing scent (orange and bergamot) and it has yellow stars that take a long while before they dissolve. And the best part is that these stars are actually little bath oils and they treat your skin like a Queen. This bathbomb has everything you need to have a relaxing and beautiful bath! I give it a 10 out of 10. (you heard it right, the maximum score)

MISTLETOE : BATHBOMB

This is also one of my new favorite bathbombs ever. It has Glitter and it is PINK! I just love the combo of glitter and pink. It also smells AMAZING. It smells like jasmine and I didn’t want to come out of my bath until the water was cold. This is definitely worth a try. 9 out of 10.

NORTHERN LIGHTS : BATHBOMB

I bought this bathbomb because of the name. How promising is that name? I really want to see the northern lights one day and I just had to try this one. At first the bath looked like in the photo but after a while it turns green-ish. Just like the Northern Lights. The name is perfect for the bathbomb and I really enjoyed it. But I missed a little touch of glitter.It also had a very nice smell! I give this bathbomb a 8 out of 10.

GOLDEN WONDER : BATHBOMB

This bathbomb sounded so very promising. GOLDEN WONDER, WOW. I immediately began thinking of a golden bath with loads of glitter and an amazing smell. But sadly, this wasn’t the case. The bath turned green and the smell wasn’t all that amazing (just a basic orange scent). The only thing I really liked about it were the little stars. This bomb was a bit of a disappointment so I give it a 6 out of 10.

SO WHITE : BATHBOMB

This bathbomb smelled like heaven! It had this nice fresh apple kind of smell and I just loved it! And it also looks very nice!! I give this bathbomb a 8 out of 10.

FATHER CHRISTMAS

This is a bathbomb that returns every year and it is just really one you need to try. It smells amazing (bubblegum smell) and the bathbomb just looks magnificent. You almost don’t want to throw it in the bathtub. The only thing i’d like to change about it, is the green. I get why it is green (because of the color of the christmas tree) but i’d rather have a red-ish bathtub!! I give it a 7 out of 10.

So these are all of the products I have tried out SO FAR. My mom, boyfriend and brothers didn’t want me to buy too much maybe because I will get a Lush Present from them! if this is the case, I will update this blogpost with other reviews about the lush christmas products!

So guys, This is the last post for my 12 days of Christmas. I really enjoyed making all these videos and posts for you guys and I hope you enjoyed them aswel. I think I will do this next year aswel if I got the time. Thank you guys so much for all the support and all of the love. You make me write and edit and film better and you make me love making things even more. Thanks for being such loyal followers!

You won’t be hearing a lot from me for the next month but I am going to Berlin in February and I am going to make a lot of fun things for you guys about that adventure.

Have a lovely Christmas and Share the love!

XOXO

LUSH : the big review

Hi everyone!

There has been a big hype for about a year now about Lush! Lush makes several amazing products for your skin and hair and has awesome bath products like bathbombs and bubblebars. The cosmetics they make are handmade and not bad for the environment. When you walk into a Lush store, you will definitely walk out with a big smile on your face. The people who work there, are literally the most friendly people on this planet. They always make you feel special!

Last year, my best friend introduced me to the magical Lush-products, and I fell in love immediately. I love taking baths and therefore I love bathbombs! All the other products are also amazing, but I personally love the bathproducts the most. Since I fell in love with Lush, I have bought several items throughout the year. Today, I’m going to give you guys a review about the products I have already used.

Bath products :

First of all, I’m going to start with the bath products because they are by far my favorites. I love taking baths, it relaxes me, I can sing along with the radio and I can come out of the bathtub after half an hour looking like an older lady (referring to the wrinkled toes and fingers you get when you get in contact with water for more than 15 minutes). Here we go!

The twilight Bath bomb

 

This bathbomb is amazing. First of all, I love pink water! Second, It smells like lavender and I love the smell of these flowers so much! I give this bomb a 8 out of 10 

Dragon’s egg 

I think this one is my favorite. I love dragons and I love the smell of lemon (Also love mojito/daiquiri cocktails). Also the colour is very surprising. I didn’t expect the orange, but I thought it was magnificent! I give this bomb a 9,5 out of 10!

Father Christmas

This bath bomb is very nice and original. But it was a bit disappointing. I thought that my bath would turn very pink, but instead it turned very very green (christmas tree green). It is a nice idea, christmas ball that changes your water into christmas tree green, but I don’t like bathing in greenish water because it looks kind of dirty. I give this ball a 6 out of 10.

The experimenter

This is also one of my favorites. It has a very nice smell and it has different colours. You really don’t know what to expect when you throw this bathbomb in the water. At first, you get to see a magical colour rainbow but after a while the water turns completely purple. And the best part … Your bathtub is filled with glitters! I didn’t want to get out of this beautiful purple bathwater. I give this bomb a 9 out of 10.

Shoot for the stars

I had very high expectations for this one because of the name.  I tought my bathtub would be filled with blue stars or yellow sparkles. But it really wasn’t that nice. It smelled really nice and the bathbomb looked very promising. But the results were a little bit disappointing. The water just turns dark-blue, nothing yellow or no surprises at all. I give this bomb a 5 out of 10.

Lord of misrule 

This ball was very very nice! I expected greenish bathwater, but it caught me by surprise. The water turned reddish/pink and it smelled wonderful. Vanilla and pepper, amazing combo! I give this bath bomb a well deserved 8 out of 10 

The Famous intergalactic Bath bomb

This is one of the most famous bath bombs. It deserves its popularity because this bomb is marvelous. It gives your water a very nice blue colour and smells like peppermint. It feels like you are swimming in space. Who doesn’t want to experience this? I give this bomb a 8,5 out of 10!

Hair products :

The lush hair products are a little bit more expensive, but so far they are worth the money. I have used 2 hair products :

Sea Spray Hair mist : I found out about this product in the magazine “Elle”. This product is magnificent. It makes your hair less frizzy and it gives your hair not only a beautiful shine but it also gives your hair a wonderful smell! You hair smells like the ocean (not a fish kinda smell, but a fresh/sweet ocean smell) and it gives you a  fantastic summer feeling! It’s very nice and I give this product a 8 out of 10.

Roots hair treatment : I got a sample of this product for free and I tried it out immediately. You had to put it on your hair when it was still dry. I thought this was very strange but I just followed the instructions. I put it in my hair and when I was done, my hair was the most greasy that it had ever been. You had to wait a while before washing it of and after I washed it off, my hair felt enormously soft and it smelled incredible. I was very very satisfied by this product and I will definitely go and buy myself this marvelous hair product again. I give this product a 7 out of 10.

Scrubs :

I have only bought one Lush scrub in my life. The Bubblegum Lip scrub. You need to massage your lips with the scrub for a small minute and afterwards you can lick the scrub of your lips… And you can eat it! This scrub does not only smell like delicious bubblegum flavoured candy, it also tastes like it! And on top of all of this, my lips are extremely soft afterwards (something that my boyfriend really likes 😉 ) This product gets a 9 out of 10 from me.

These are all the Lush products that I have already tried. I really like Lush, and I will definitely continue using their products. Hope you guys liked my post. Give it a thumbs up, share it with your friends and give me your e-mail address (home page in the side bar) so that I can keep you updated om my adventures.

XOXO

What is in my Make-up Bag?

As you guys can see, I have a very big Make up bag… I saw this bag in “Zara Home” and I fell in love with it immediately. Because I didn’t know if I should buy it or not, my boyfriend decided to buy it for me (best boyfriend ever) and it has been my make-up bag now for over a year.

Back to the point, my make-up bag is really big right? So, You guys might be wondering… What in the hell does she put in there? Well, I’m about to tell you. Be prepared !

There is a slideshow of the products I use at the end of my blog!

1.  A Dior Make-up Brush

2. A lip balm that protects my lips from the sun and the cold weather

3. A red Chanel Lipstick (I actually stole this one from my mother…)

number 3

4. Mascara from T.Leclerc :
fun fact : I normally don’t use black mascara, but I use brown mascara instead. Don’t ask me why, some beauty specialist told me it looks better on me so I don’t use black mascara alot. I only use it when I go out!

number 4

5. Pressed powder mosaïque from T.Leclerc : 
You guys may notice that this powder is yellow/pink/green-ish… No I’m not trying to look like a unicorn who had a baby with the Grinch. This powder gives you a natural look. It deals with redness of the skin and gives you a beautiful shine. And most of all it doesn’t make you look like your head fell into a bucket of orange paint! It gives you a beautiful look, and it seems like you aren’t even wearing any make-up.

number 5

6. Some silver eye-shadow that I bought in a cheap store when I was 15, which actually looks really nice

7. Make-up concealer by Covergirl (I really needed one and I quickly bought one in a grocery store)

8. Eye shadow by …… T. Leclerc (It’s a really good brand)

9. BB creme by Dior
I normally use something else instead as a  foundation but sometimes I use this one. But, Before I put it on my face, I first mix it with some face moisturiser from Vichy.

number 9

10. CC crème from T.Leclerc
This is what I use as a foundation. I know, it’s pink… But it doesn’t show pink on your face. It doesn’t give your face a browner look. It just corrects some things like pimples and it gives you the right amount of radiance. In one single step your skin is corrected, moisturised and protected. When you add some powder to your face, you will have a no make-up make-up look. I love this product!

IMG_2470
number 10

11. a very small Chanel bottle (because a girl always needs her back-up chanel)

IMG_2471
number 11

12. Blush from T.Leclerc

13. Lip glow (color reviver balm) by Dior

IMG_2473
number 13

14. A black Eye pencil from Lancôme (I normally use a brown pencil because I have brown eyes but this black one is also a very nice and good one)

15. Powder from And other stories 
I normally use my other powder, but when I want to look a little browner I use this one. This is a really good powder and it isn’t that expensive

16. A white kinda pencil
I use this under my eyes, to create the illusion that I have big eyes!

IMG_2476
number 15

17. Mascara Rocket volume express by Maybelline new york (this is the mascara I wear when I go out. It has a black colour)

17. A pink lipstick by T.Leclerc which protects my lips against cold weather/sun

18. A brown pencil by T.Leclerc

I also have cleaning wipes for my face, brushes for my eye shadown and tissues in my bag!
