Outfits Of The Week

Bonjour ma Cheries,

Happy New year to you all! I can't believe it's actually 2014. 2013 Has flown by!
So a new year means new ideas, and I came up with this one a few days ago and I quite liked it.
I hope you do to! I will be doing outfit of the week post like this everyweek. Well atleast I'll try to.
It's not only to show you what I wore and what my style is, it's also a way to show you my art and let out my creative side. This is the first one I've made so not the best one. Maybe it will change over a period of time and the drawings will probably get better the more I make them but this is just the little launch of it. I'm actually quite happy with how it turned out!

If you want to know any detaills about the actual clothes just ask me. 

What do you think about these drawings?

Bonjour ma Cheries,

I know this post is a little late but I was really busy during the last few days but I still wanted to share with you my Christmas decorations. I really love Christmas! Unfortunately we didn't have snow this year in Holland and it was rainy all day but it was still lovely.

I decorated a little Christmas tree in my bedroom and put it next to my Russian doll and a Mask from Venice. It looks really Christmassy and gets me in the spirit! 

I decorated the tree this year, wich I really love doing. I bought some new ornaments; wooden ski's, ice skates and slee's. Also some cupcakes and a Father Christmas, a Vintage car and a little wooden cabin. 

We have always had plain red and gold ornaments and this year I wanted to do something different. I did use some of the red and gold ones but mainly I used all kinds of different ornaments. I quite love the wooden ones and the cupcakes too!

For Chistmas eve I baked some Chistmas cookies, and they turned out so nice! They tasted really good. I bought the equipment at http://www.maakjetaart.nl/ 
They sell quite nice baking stuff and decorations! 

Happy Holidays!

MAFB Fashionshow

Bonjour ma Cheries,

As you may know I competed in a fashion designing competition last week and..... *drum rolls* I CAME IN SECOND PLACE!! out of 17 super talented designers. I am so honoured and surprised. It's quite a big deal for me. My prize is that I get to show some items at hollands biggest fashion fairs. Which is so cool!
The show was organized by a company called MAFB which means Music and Fashion Battle. They did a great job and the show was amazing!

This is the overall result and I'm really proud of it! I made and sewed everything myself and I've never had any help in how to sew and stuff so I pretty much taught myself to do it. 

We were one of the first to arrive at the venue so we had the entire space to our selves to get the stuff together and ready.

I asked Wies to do the make-up and she did a fabulous job. The models looked stunning! 
She also has a blog so if you would like to check that out click here 

I chose for a braid all around the head wich me and my sister (the model under here) did.
I thought it would look very lovely and girly, which it sertainly did. I'm still very happy with the results!
The other models were all friends of mine and not from model agency's or something like that.
I think they did a great job and I'm very thankfull that they showed my desings in such a lovely way. 

and.... she also did my make-up! 

It was quite a mess backstage due tothe 17 designers and all of their models (max. 6 per designer) and their hair and make-up teams.
 (and these pictures were made at the beginning of the day, imagine what it looked like at the end...)

This is what the venue looked like. The show was held in the 'Centrum voor Beeldende Kunsten' in Amsterdam. I think it looked quite professional! (which the show was though) 
I think something between 100 and 200 people fit in there, and the place was packed!

Well that was about it that I have for you today, more photos will follow as soon as possible!
I really enjoyed myself that day, and I still can't really believe I won... 
(most of the pictures are made by Wies)

Have you ever been to a fashionshow? 

Lots of Love,

Sweater Weather TAG

Bonjour ma Cheries,

It's not officially winter yet so still appropriate to do this tag. I saw DisforDazzle's doing this tag in her video today and I really liked it so here it is!

1. What is your favorite scented candle?
I really love vanilla scented candles and I don't really mind from wich shop or brand!

2. Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate?
I love all three but if I really need to choose I think I'd pick tea, just because I've been drinking tea non-stop the last few months. I like marrocan mint tea and fresh mint tea but also vinalla and cinnamon tea.

3. What's your best autumn memory?
I don't really have a lot of autumn memories because I used to not like autumn, but I remember that when I was around the age of 5 or something, we made little spiders of chestnuts.

4. Winged eyeliner or dark lips?
This is a hard one! I love wearing both looks, especially combined. But I think I'd have to go with eyeliner because I wear that more often.

5. What's your favorite autumn perfume?
I don't really have an autumn perfume, I wear mine all year around. But one I have been enjoying recently is 'Our Moment' by One Direction. It's sweet but not too heavy and I quite like it.

6. What's your favorite sweater?
I really love my cream sweater that I bought at Pimkie last year in France!

7. What's your must have nailpolish this season?
I like burgondy and black nailpolishes in autumn but I don't really have a favorite.

8. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Definately skinny yeans, but high-waisted ones. I don't like low jeans. I'm not really a legging person and I only have one for my yoga classes but that's it. I just wear jeans :)

9. Favorite autumn shoes?
I bought a pair of black ankleboots at Primark a while ago and they're amazing. They go with everything and they're really comfortable as well.

10.Wich song gives you the ultimate autumn feeling?
Probably 'Stop this train' by John Mayer, but since I saw Diana's video on this tag I've been listening to Banana Pancakes non stop as well!

So I hope you liked my post, and what's your favorite autumn song?
Please tag me in your post if you do this too, I'd like to read what your answers are!

Lots of Love,

Review: Maybelline Baby Lips

Bonjour ma Cheries,

Today i've got a review for you guys. Two weeks a go a bought the well famous Maybelline Baby Lips. ALmost every beautyblogger/youtuber has these babies, and I was curious if they were really that good.

I bought them at  DA (a dutch drugstore), and I couldn't stop myself from buying all four choises they had. I bought Mint Fresh, Hydrate, Intense Care and Pink Punch. All four of them actually held up to my expectations!  They're really nice to apply and make your lips super soft. Knowing that it will start freezing quite soon here, I thought they were also neccecary. I am really happy with these babies!

Three out of four are white, and leave a little bit of shine behind on your lips and the Pink Punch one is pink and leaves a little bit of pink shine behind. The Hydrate one and the Intense Care one don't really have a strong scense or flavour but Pink punch smells and tastes like strawberry and the Mint Fresh one smells and stasted like mint. I think my favorite has to be the Hydrate, just because it's quite simple and not to strong.

What's your favorite lipbalm?

xoxo Rosa

October Beauty Favorites

Bonjour ma Cheries,

Zo, vandaag dacht ik, laat ik het eens in het Nederlands proberen! Misschien vinden jullie dat fijner, misschien vind ik het fijner, we gaan het zien. Deze maand doe ik voor het eerst een post over beauty favorieten, ik hoop dan ook dat jullie het leuk vinden! Nou laat ik dan maar gaan beginnen!

Mijn eerste favoriet van de maand is mijn 'Brightening concealer' van Etos. Deze heb ik in de kleur 002 en die is perfect voor onder mijn ogen en op kleine oneffenheden. Wat ik vooral fijn vind aan deze concealer is dat het aan de onderkant een knopje heeft en als je die indrukt komt er aan de bovenkant in het kwastje concealer uit. Dus kan je het meteen op de nodige plekken smeren!

Mijn volgende favoriet is de 'Compact powder' van Hema in de kleur 22. Ik heb nog niet veel powders uitgeprobeerd maar deze bevalt me zeker. Hij is niet te zwaar maar dekt wel goed. Ook heeft het doosje een spiegeltje en is dus handig om mee te nemen.

Ook een favoriet van de Hema is mijn nieuwe wijnrode nagellak in de kleur 825. Deze kleur vind ik een super kleur voor in de herfst en winter en Hema lakjes zijn super goedkoop en ook nog eens heel goed. Ik heb hem dan ook bijna elke dag opgehad afgelopen maand.

Mijn volgende favoriet is 'Rose petal salve' het is van Rose & Co Apothecary. Ik heb geen idee waar deze vandaan komt, ik heb hem namelijk van m'n moeder gekregen. Deze lipbalsem is super fijn. Hij ruikt wel sterk naar rozen maar niet vervelend ofzo. Hij maakt je lippen onwijs zacht en geeft ook een beetje een roze gloed. Het is trouwens niet alleen voor je lippen maar ook voor droge plekjes en om je wenkbrouwen bijvoorbeeld in plaats te houden. Het potje vind ik trouwens ook super leuk!

Mijn één na laatste favoriet deze maand is mijn nieuwe parfum 'Phyllis' van Pull & Bear. Hij heeft een heel aparte geur, wel fris maar ook zoetig, heel lastig te beschrijven! Ik heb hem bijna elke dag op en hij blijft heel lang zitten. Ik weet niet of je hem in nederland kan krijgen, want ik heb hem namelijk uit Las Palmas, Gran Canaria dus ik denk dat hij wel te verkrijgen is in andere winkels en anders op de webshop.

De laatste favoriet is eigenlijk wel een all-time-favorite, namelijk Zwitsal bodylotion. Dit is serieus de lekkerste bodylotion die ik ooit gebruikt heb. Je ruikt niet alleen lekker naar Zwitsal maar ook hydrateerd deze lotion super goed. Aangezien ik in de winter sneller een droge huid krijg vind ik deze super lekker en smeer dan ook altijd na het doushen en dan voelt mn huid weer lekker zacht aan! Zwitsal producten kun je volgens mij in elke drogist krijgen.

Nou dat was hem voor vandaag! Hopelijk vonden jullie het leuk om dit te lezen.

Wat zijn jullie favorieten van de afgelopen maand? 

xoxo Rosa
