Romwe Review (SWIM)

Well hello there

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything but It’s time to get back on that Blog Grind. So here’s a new, highly requested, blogpost about the Romwe Bikini’s I bought a few weeks back.

I was looking for some cute bikinis online and all of a sudden I found this website. Romwe Fashion. Never heard of it. I started looking on the swimsuit page and there were a lot of cute bathing suits and bikinis. And OMG HOW CHEAP. Was this too good to be true? Hell, why not give it a try and write a blogpost about my experience. So… Here we are then!

I decided to buy 3 bikinis on the website. The first one: a green-ish bikini with a crisscross waist. It looked very cute and as if it could mask my muffintops a bit. 12,99 US dollars. That’s very little. I didn’t expect a lot of this bikini because of the price and the reviews I’d already read about this website. But when I received it in the mail, I was completely blown away. I had never put on a bikini that fitted my body so well. I didn’t want to take it off and I ran around the house showing off my new bikini to everyone. It also has a very nice fabric and it looks more expensive than it actually  is. This bikini is currently my favorite bikini in my closet. Definitely a 10 out of 10.

I also wanted a very CUTE bikini and I came across this blue one with watermelons. I just had to have it. I know it looks very girlie but it’s just too adorable not to have. 10.09 US dollars for this one. Okay, in my online bag. This one is also very very nice. It accentuates every nice part about my body and I don’t have to worry about a boob falling out when I jump into the water. It looks and feels like it’s made out of  good materials and I really love it. I survived a lot of aqua gym wearing this one. I give it a 9 out of 10.

And then the final bikini. Or should I say three tiny triangles made out of bikini fabric. OMG, this was soooo TINY. I think it only covered one third of my boob and one butt cheek lol. This one was definitely not wearable. 0 out of 10.

In general I think that you need to get VERY lucky when you buy something from this website. When you’re lucky, you can expect a very cute piece of clothing for not a lot of money. But when you don’t get lucky, well… You can expect basically nothing. I didn’t send my third bikini back (I think you can send pieces back, which is definitely a plus) because it didn’t cost much at all and sending it back would’ve just cost me more. But I AM very very happy with the two other ones. I think it’s best to not choose too complicated clothing/swimwear models and then you’ll probably be safe. No long sophisticated dresses or Triangle bikini sets. Shipping price is affordable although I choose the one which could get me my clothes the fastest because I left for Mauritius 3 weeks later. It promised me that I’d have my bikinis in 1 week time. I had it in 1 week and 4 days time. Later then expected, but I did get them on time and that’s what matters.

I would definitely give this website another chance and I think I’d even look at the other clothes on there when I have the money :p

This was my review of Romwe. Hopefully you enjoyed it! If you have any further questions, ask them in the comment section below. Also tell me if you guys like these kind of try out/reviews on my blog!

Have a nice summer-y weekend people

Sporty Springy Outfit

IMG_3029IMG_3049IMG_3076IMG_3083IMG_3119IMG_3088IMG_3127

Hi babes!  Spring is almost in town, or I’d like to think so, and that means it’s time for a little more sunny vibes. It’s time for Spring Fashion. This outfit is one of my favorites atm! I found this outfit in Berhska and I just had to have it! I’m adoring these two trends and combining them is just THE BEST. Pants with a fashionable stripe on the side and a croptop. What more does a girl need nowadays. This outfit had to be combined with some sporty sneakers and an amazing handbag. So that’s what I did. The handbag is from Mimo and the Sneakers are proud Puma’s. What do you think? Tell me in the comments! (Oh, and I just had to wear Shades with this outfit, it was a must.)

XOXO

Well hello there. Fall is back in town and that means that my fall wardrobe gets it’s time to shine. This is my very first Fall Outfit on the blog( YAY!).

I adore this time of the year. Back to cosy clothes, fireplaces and hot coco. And the colours in Autumn are just the best. Brown and orange, so cosy and beautiful. Let’s hope the rain doesn’t make an appearance any time soon though, right?

Back to the outfit. It’s brand new and I bought it in ‘Zara’. I love the shirt very much and the flower details are just gorgeous. The sleeves are a little bit bigger and I am loving that style! I combined this lovely t-shirt with some fake leather shorts. It’s perfect for fall because it isn’t too cold yet and it gives your outfit a fancy but also sporty touch. It’s very comfy and I love walking around in these fashionable shorts. I used my new ‘Liu Jo’ bag and favorite ‘Nike’s’ to finish it off.

I hope you liked my FIRST FALL OUTFIT POST. Many more are coming so don’t forget to follow my blog. Right now.

See you later guys!

My hair Analysis with L’oréal

Last Friday, I was invited to go to the L’oréal headquarters in Brussels for a hair analysis. L’oréal has designed a new product called a ‘Power Mix’. Thanks to all the different types of ‘Power Mixes’, the hairdresser can make a hair treatment that fits your hair type perfectly by mixing different things together. I had to fill in a form with all kinds of questions about my hair and about the way I treat it. After this, a professional hairdresser took a look at my hair and he told me exactly what my hair needed to look healthy and beautiful. He also told me that he loved my hair colour and that I had a colour that a lot of girls want. That made me blush a lot (hihi 🙂 ). The hairdresser was very kind and although he spoke French, I understood almost everything he told me (I was surprised by myself). The professional told me that my hair was very healthy overall but because of the fact that my hair is pretty long, I need a very nurturing and strengthening hair product. Because my hair is longer, my hair is also a lot more vulnerable. He suggested I’d start using the ‘Inforcer’ products mixed with a power mix called : Shot Nutri Glycerol. This is a nourishing additive. They mixed it and tested it on me immediately.

IMG_6017IMG_6019IMG_6025IMG_6029IMG_6035

The first thing I noticed when they started to wash my hair, was the smell. The smell of this product is just amazing. And the smell stays in your hair even after it’s dry. The ‘inforcer’ shampoo is very foamy and I really like that. After the shampoo, it was time for the hair mask mixed with the power mix. The power mix also smelled fantastic. I don’t know how they make their products smell this good, but I seriously love it.

After they washed my hair, my hair smelled amazing and it was so soft! It was time to start brushing my hair. The hairdresser brushed my hair backwards to give it more volume, and it really worked. My hair had a lot more volume! But the most remarkable thing is the way my hair felt. It felt very light, soft and it smelled fantastic (yes, I already said this, but it’s just a fact!)

IMG_6066IMG_6079IMG_6085IMG_6090IMG_6114IMG_6118IMG_6141IMG_6152IMG_6154IMG_6156

I was very happy with the results and I got my personalized product home with me. I would seriously recommend it to everyone. It’s so important to treat your hair with the right care, and with this product your hair doesn’t miss out on anything. You can get your  personalized product at your local L’oreal hairdresser! I don’t know when exactly, but it’s coming!

Thanks for having me, L’oréal. As usual, it was a pleasure.

My first Pressdays

This Wednesday I went to my First Pressdays ever! I was very surprised that I got invitations because I didn’t expect it at all. I’m very happy that I could be part of these events.

I went to two events that day! My first event was a Lifestylelab by Miss Publicity. I tasted a new brandy by “Rooster and Wolf” and it was very delicious. It didn’t taste very strong, but it’s actually 40 %.. So be careful ;). I also got introduced to “Ananas Gold”. These pineapple pieces are very nice and they taste very fresh although they are in cans. Then there is “Linwoods”. This brand sells packages of healthy seeds you can put in your yoghurt or smoothies. They are full of vitamines and they are a nice addition to your breakfast.

My second event was a Fashion show by MaisonPR ft. MOJO antwerp. The fashion show was located @Divani in Antwerp. When I entered the event, I was blown away. I saw cupcakes, handbags, clothes, watches and models everywhere. I had never been to such an event so I had to come out of my comfort zone in the beginning but after a few minutes I began to be myself. I got introduced to loads of new and promising brands.

First of all there was VOYA beauty.
This is a new beauty brand from Ireland based on Seaweed. You can buy things like Seaweed for in your bath (good for your skin, good against cellulite and it makes your hair very soft). You can buy skin care products and body lotion based on seaweed. Not only is it good for your hair and skin, it is also environmentally friendly and against animal cruelty. This is a very promising brand and I hope to hear more about it soon!

FOOD! There were also new brands that were very tasteful.

  1. Jimmy’s Popcorn : They have a few new and amazing flavours and they taste incredible. Some taste like cheese and some taste like caramel.
  2. Amylin’s  cupcakes and macarons : These beautiful cupcakes were to beautiful to put in your mouth. My boyfriend tasted one of them and he loved the taste of the cupcake and the topping. Only the look of the cupcakes made me smile.
  3. Bongiorno don pépé : this alcoholic drink is based on Blood orange and as some of you might know, I love blood orange. It is very delicious and you can combine this drink with tonic water or pink lemonade! It is definitely worth the try.

 

These are the fashion brands that got most of my attention.

  1. Add my berry : Add my berry makes very basic clothes but the clothes have very nice sentences or logos on them. It is very nice to combine with sneakers and I really love this brand. I’m definitely going to buy a hoodie from this magnificent fashion brand.
  2. Issey Miyake : I loved their handbags the most. They are very nice and futuristic. I would really like to wear one around my shoulder one day!
  3. Dexters : this is the new collection by Tanja Dexters. I really fell in love with this summer collection. It has very nice colours and the skirts and dresses are marvelous. I loved one green skirt in particular (had a dream about it last night 😉 ) This brand has much potential! It kind of reminds me of a nicer version of TUTU CHIC 🙂

 

After walking around and discovering these beautiful brands, the fashion show started. Here is a slide show of my favorite models/outfits.

My weekend 2/03/2016 : My shopping mission + going to the zoo

Hi guys! Today I ‘m going to tell you something about what I did last weekend.

The past 2 weeks I’ve been studying my butt off while my family has been enjoying Spain without me (“crying in a small corner of the room while eating chocolate”). I know, I know… It’s better to stay in Belgium because that doubles my chances of not failing my upcoming exams… But it’s not so fun knowing that your family is eating Tapas in the warm sun of Spain, while you are studying at your boring desk while it’s raining outside. The only things I have seen the past 2 weeks are my unshaved boyfriend walking around in his joggingpants (while eating all of my bananas which resulted in the fact that I didn’t have any bananas left to make a smoothie which was the only fun thing I had all day), my cats sleeping around all day (cats…very motivating creatures…) and my computer/books. This sounds very depressing/lonely/boring doesn’t it? Well it was! I felt abandoned and I felt like I was dying inside. Yes, it was that painful.

So I decided that it would be a good idea to go somewhere for a change, and leave my desk. I decided to go to the zoo of Antwerp and go shopping afterwards on a saturday. (very good idea Laura, go to one of the busiest shopping streets in Belgium on a Saturday…). I thought it would be a nice idea to go out and have some fun instead of getting a headache from my books. So when Saturday arrived, I jumped out of my nasty joggingpants, into my skinny jeans. I bought myself a honey latte in Starbucks and hopped on the train to Antwerp. The day before the weather man said the sun would be shining, the birds would be singing and that it would be an amazing spring-day. It wasn’t… It was very cloudy and thank god for the decision I made to take my jacket with me (I already have my motherly instinct hihi).

But I didn’t really care about the weather, because I didn’t see any books! When we arrived in Antwerp we first went to the Zoo. It was very fun although the Zoo is renewing it’s interior and there are construction sites every 30 steps. Thanks to the renovations, I couldn’t see the girafes… Thank god they aren’t my favorite animals. Despite the nasty weather and the less than nice accommodations, I enjoyed watching the animals! It was really nice because I haven’t been to a Zoo in a long time. The animal I enjoyed the most was the panther (surprise, surprise … big cats are my favorite animals! Yes I know you can stop dropping your jaws). After this nice Zoo-trip we headed to Macdonalds (my little heaven on earth) and enjoyed some cheeseburgers. I ate a little bit too much, but that was okay because I was heading to the shopping street and I could use all the energy I could get.

I had 3 missions that day. First of all I wanted to find the adidas superstars with the baby rose stripes (That I could not find anywhere!). I had been searching for them for a long time, losing hope of their existance. But this shopping street was my last resort. I entered almost every sneaker shop I saw, and just as I was about to give up… King of Trainers. There they were… Only having eyes for those shoes I walked up to them almost falling over some black guys feet when he was putting on his Nikees. I started looking for my size, I didn’t see it. But my hope wasn’t lost just yet! A saleswoman walked up to me and I asked if they still had them in my size… Looking at her with my puppy eyes almost about to cry, I saw her lips making a movement that I didn’t want to see… “No…” She said… Hope was almost lost yet again but then… “But I can order them online for you if you like?”. My heartbeat started rising, I started sweating while she looked on her Ipad if they were still available… “Oh, I’m so sorry, they are completely sold out…”. I looked up to my boyfriend feeling super disappointed. Again my dreams were crushed right in front of my eyes. But my boyfriend had that look in his eyes. It was going to be alright, his eyes told me. One day I will find them beautiful heavenly shoes.

Missions 2 en 3 were very successful. I wanted to buy a colourful jacket because it’s spring and it’s going to get warmer. You might think why do you need to wear a jacket when it’s warm outside. Well, I bought myself a scooter a few weeks ago and It’s kinda cold when I driving with just a T-shirt, that’s why! I almost didn’t find a jacket…  But just as I decided to go home, back to Ghent, I saw it, just hanging there… and without any doubt I bought the jacket. My last mission was to find some nice T-shirts which I found in “Pull and Bear”.

It was a day full of ups and downs, but it was very fun!

Hope you enjoyed my post!

Bye! xoxo
