I am very happy to share my favourite on the go beauty essentials with you. I am not a big fan of touching up my makeup during the day, however on days when I’ve had minimal sleep it is an absolute must. Although I don’t seem to post many beauty related posts, I am a huge makeup junky. So let’s take a look inside my makeup bag! Here are the five products that I carry in my makeup bag every day.
I will start with my all time favourite concealer, which is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer (light medium). It gives me the perfect coverage for my dark under eyes. Very important after those short nights of sleep when I’m stressing about deadlines.
It’s all about the brows nowadays! That is why my MAC eyebrow pencil (stylized) is a must-have. Well-groomed eyebrows flatter the face and make you look pulled together overall. I love using a pencil for my eyebrows because it gives me full control over the shape.
Next up are two of my favourite lip products. I got my first YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick (nude beige) a year ago, and I still use it very often. Can we just obsess about the beautiful packaging for a second? Applying this lipstick always makes me feel so glamorous. The Urban Decay Revolution Lipgloss (liar) is also gorgeous. It is amazingly smooth on the lips and not sticky at all. This colour is a dark nude, so I love wearing this when I’m feeling a bit bold. It is also a perfect colour for autumn.
When I do my makeup in the morning I don’t find myself applying eyeliner that often anymore. I do find it great for touching up. After a long and busy day I can look a bit tired, and then eyeliner does the trick for me. I use my Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen to create the perfect wing with.

Summer is officially coming to an end, so I’ve been trying to soak up the sun as much as possible. For this beautiful day I wanted to wear something casual and comfortable, yet chic and sophisticated. I created this look by taking some wardrobe essentials, such as a leather jacket and a white t-shirt. For a pop of edginess I added the patterned American Vintage skirt to the outfit. :-) I think it makes a cute outfit all together! What do you think?
We strolled around in Rotterdam looking for the perfect spot to shoot this outfit. And after that came the best part of my day: late breakfast at The Tea Lab in Rotterdam. It’s a really cute hotspot! They have lots of teas, coffees and a nice lunch menu. And a little bonus: they offer vegan options. I’ve been trying to stick to a vegan diet for the past few weeks and I’ve been enjoying it so far. I love the fact that I get to be a bit more creative with my meals now. If any of you know any good vegan recipe websites, let me know! – Love, E
MOJITO’S & BURGERS FOR MY LUNCH DATE WITH SORAYA
Hey my loves! What is better than drinking a cocktail during lunchtime? Yup.. Nothing! Soraya and I took these photos a little while ago. I miss my free time and the perfect sunny weather. We were wearing cute matching dresses this day. We always wear something very similar whenever we go out together, and the funny thing is: we don’t know it in advance! My cute blue dress is from Zara for the ones wondering.
1NUL8 in Rotterdam is one of our fav lunch spots to go to. They have delicious food and wine on their menu, and there is no better combo than that. :-) My mouth starts to water just by looking at that food pic… Time to go back to Rotterdam I’d say! – Love, E.
Hey my loves! Wat is er beter dan cocktails tijdens de lunch? Yup.. Niks! Ik en Soraya hebben deze foto’s een tijdje geleden genomen. Ik mis mijn vrije tijd en het perfecte zonnige weer. We droegen allebei hele schattige off the shoulder jurkjes die dag. We zien er heel vaak hetzelfde uit als we iets gaan doen samen en het grappige is: we weten het niet vooraf! Mijn leuke blauwe jurkje is van de Zara trouwens.
1NUL8 in Rotterdam is een van onze favoriete lunch spots om naartoe te gaan. Ze hebben heerlijk eten en wijn op de kaart staan.. En zeg nou zelf, er is geen betere combo dan dat. :-) Mijn mond loopt haast over van het kijken naar die food foto… Tijd om richting Rotterdam te gaan voor nog zo’n lunch! – Love, E
Hi guys! Ah, finally a new shopping collage. They always give me so much inspiration. This edition is with items that I purchased about a week ago. I’ve bought so many new items in the past few weeks. I need somebody to stop me! New fall collections just get me so excited. I’m in love with the gold slip on dress from Missguided. It looks so cute with a pair of converse and a choker necklace. Finding the perfect pair of mom jeans was also a challenge, so I was really happy to find this perfect ripped pair at River island.
I just finished my second week of university, so I can finally call it weekend! I really had to change my mindset into work mode again, but I really like my course so far. I’m going to get a large cup of coffee now. Enjoy your weekend everyone. – Love, E.
Hi allemaal! Ah, eindelijk een nieuwe shop collage. Deze geven me altijd zoveel inspiratie. Deze editie is met items die ik ongeveer een week geleden al heb gekocht. Ik heb zoveel geshopt de afgelopen paar weken. Iemand hou me tegen alsjeblieft! De nieuwe herfstcollecties zijn gewoon te mooi om te laten liggen. Ik ben helemaal gek van de gouden slip on dress van Missguided. Hij is super leuk met een paar converse sneakers en een choker ketting. Het vinden van de perfecte mom jeans was ook een hele uitdaging, maar deze van River Island is echt prachtig.
Ik ben net thuis gekomen van mijn tweede week op de universiteit, dus ik kan het eindelijk weekend noemen! Ik neem een heerlijk bakje koffie en ga lekker genieten. Fijn weekend iedereen. – Love, E.

My gorgeous and talented friend Sharon took some photos of me. We tried to create a cool and sporty vibe. I think the photos came out really great! We had a really fun day overall, it was so hot! The shooting location looked so awesome.We had to climb a few fences to get to the grandstand which was fun. I’m about to eat some chinese food and enjoy my night. University starts in two days and I’m not mentally prepared for it. Have a nice night everyone xx
