See you on Saturday! ;)

Trousers H&M Trend / T-Shirt Esprit / Sandals Zara / Bag Mango

I have a feeling this week is going to be fab! No uni, Berlin on Thursday and Friday, and then my birthday on Sunday. Good times!

Foolproof Make-Up


Foundation: dream matte mousse make-up by maybelline / Concealer: high definition concealer by smashbox / Blush: baked in 'coral' by the body shop / Fixing Spray: facial spray by evian

It isn't easy to find a make-up routine that will make your face look nice throughout an 8-hour day. I recently dug into my make-up drawer and came up with the perfect combination of products that allow me to get through the day without any touch-up (uni, shopping, workout and all).
I've told you before that I'm really in love with the smashbox range (amazing coverage!). The blush by The Body Shop is also really amazing, I wear it without any foundation or anything these days and it sticks to my cheeks, from 8AM to 10PM. Also: fixing spray really does make a difference (plus it's a great way to refresh in the summer heat!).

Add some mascara and eyebrow powder and I'm good to go!

Trousers Cubus / T-Shirt H&M Men / Shoes Seven Seconds / Watch Fossil

As you may see in the pictures, I got my hair cut (finally!). It's quite short now, the photos don't do it justice since it was so windy. Think it's the shortest I've had since elementary school, but I really like it.

DIY/Cut-out skull tee


The minute I saw the cut-out skull tee pop up on several blogs, I thought 'I'll make that a DIY'. Said and done!

All you need is a somewhat loose-fit t-shirt (wouldn't look good on a tight top!), some scissors and a bright pencil (to mark the pattern before cutting). Anyone wanna try this?

Faux leather shorts, fishnet top, faux leather jacket H&M / Shoes Converse / Watch Fossil

Do you see that? I got a teeny tiny bit of colour on my skin. Proud girl! Seriously, I am the palest person you know, so every little nano hue of colour makes me very happy.
I love that it finally got very hot at the beginning of the week, so I spent loads of time on the balcony. Are you guys enjoying the sunshine?

Blazer, floral trousers, top H&M / Shoes Tamaris
It's been long since I last wore an all H&M outfit, but here we are again! I also wore pink tips again. I did brush my hair after applying the colour though, so the pink is really faded in these photos.

Blogger Inspo: AfterDRK


Introducing yet another of my favourite bloggers: afterDRK. Another dutch blogger. This lady from Amsterdam has been in my daily reads list for years now and it's fun to see how she evolved from a 'normal' fashion blogger to being super duper big in business, covering all the fashion weeks and stuff.
What I love about her style is the simplicity. The way she combines things and always manages to look elegant, yet still laid-back. I'm really inspired by all of her outfits. How about you?

Jeans Criminal / Tee H&M Men / Jacket H&M / Shoes Converse / Bag Mango / Necklace DIY

The sun finally showed up yesterday in the afternoon. Yay!

When everybody started wearing those destroyed jeans from Acne, I was reminded of these babies that have been lounging around unnoticed in the back of my closet since forever. I actually used to wear them some years back in school - they were baggy style at the time. I know this outfit might have looked somewhat better with heels, but my feet were a little tired. I also took the chance to take my DIY necklace for a stroll! Also with me: my new best friend aka. the iPhone. Safe to say I'm addicted!

Cubus Jumper / DIY Tie-Dye Jeans / H&M Jacket / Akira Boots

We took a walk on the beach yesterday. I think it's so nice living in a city that has its own beach, sadly I barely ever go there. Will do this more often!

follow me @cinjasblog


Yesterday I finally got myself an iPhone. Among the first things I did was getting Instagram. And, man, it is addictive! Follow me if you wish: @cinjasblog
From now on, my diary posts can also be all fancied up with instagram pics (hello, blogger cliché!). Hope you'll like it!

Also: Happy Father's Day! My old man flew out to Spain this morning - the lucky guy. It's probably way warmer there and over here right now (I wore a winter jumper when I left the house this morning!). I'll spend the day with my girls :)

Blogger Inspo: Fishnet tops



COTTDS, afterDRK + Kate (source unknown)

If you've stopped by my Pinterest board lately, you've probably already noticed that I've become pretty obsessed with fishnet tanks. Since I've added one to my one wardrobe, I've been collecting inspiration on how to style it. Luckily, I found that two of my favourite bloggers keep wearing theirs. It seems the top is very versatile - sporty, elegant, sexy or as a dress - you name it! How do you feel about the trend?

DIY/Tie-dye jeans





I tried the tie-dye trend for myself. Took an old pair of jeans, a lot of chlorid cleaner and many hours of waiting... Et voilà! I originally wanted the jeans to look like Sabrina's (follow her guidelines if you're planning on DIYing yourself!), but... didn't turn out as planned. I still like the result. Hope I can show you an outfit with these jeans soon.

Travel/Berlin



I just booked the bus tickets to go to Berlin at the end of the month. I'm looking forward to one night, two days and loads of fun!
And I'm one step closer to fulfilling my 'Plans for 2012' list.

Fishnet



So happy I found this top at H&M on Saturday! (sorry about the bad pictures...) I've seen it on a couple of blogs before and I could never find it anywhere, but then I tried a mall I never usually go to, and voilà! I had to buy it in a size XS, but it's so big it fits really nicely. I think it looks so nice peeking out from under a top, don't you think?

Sponsored video: Männerherzen 2

This post is in German, sorry!

Im Moment lässt das Frühlingswetter hierzulande ja leider auf sich warten. Eine gute Gelegenheit für einen DVD-Abend. Mein Lieblings-Genre ist definitiv die romantische Komödie - leicht, unterhaltsam und jeder kann mitgucken.
'Männerherzen' und der Nachfolger waren in den Kinos echte Kassenschlager - nicht schlecht für eine deutsche Produktion. Nachdem die Herren der Schöpfung im ersten Teil ihre große Liebe gefunden (oder auch noch nicht gefunden) haben, geht es im zweiten Teil turbulent weiter - Kinder, Eroberungen und eben die ganz, ganz große Liebe. Mit Christian Ulmen, Til Schweiger, Justus von Dohnányi und Florian David Fitz sind auch alle Hauptdarsteller wieder an Bord. Mir persönlich hat der Film Spaß gemacht, er ist bereits auf DVD erhältlich. Viel Spaß beim gemütlichen DVD-Abend!

Top, shoes H&M / Blazer H&M Divided Exclusive / Jeans Levi's

I'm sorry about the picture overload, but it's rare that I get to be really happy with the photos we take, and I couldn't narrow my favourites down to three or four this time. Hope you like!

Newest in





Introducing: the latest additions to my wardrobe. I ordered the authentic (!) leather skirt online at H&M and got it for less than half of the original price - score! I really love it, especially with the fabric details at the bottom.
I got the bracelet as a goodie at a press day recently, it's from the brand Casa Pari. It's braided leather and I just love the turquoise!
How do you like my new candies?

Trousers Primark / Top, bag Zara / Jacket H&M / Shoes Bianco

The boy and I often find ourselves wandering around the campus neighbourhood when I make him take pictures of me. Said neighbourhood is actually pretty posh, judging from the houses. I think they're really beautiful with their stucco walls and little yards framed by precious gates... Wouldn't hurt to live in a house like that myself someday!
