NEW | 5 beauty products


Today I am showing you five beauty products I bought lately.
- Essie 'Sole Mate' nail polish : I was looking for a very dark red nail polish so when I saw this color while scrolling trough Instagram, I had to ask what the name was. And so I did. I asked it and bought it. It's the very first Essie nail polish I bought so I was quite curious about the quality etc. but I must say that I am pretty happy with it. A little review will follow. 
- YSL Touche Éclat color number 2 'Ivoire Lumiere' : Last week my mum came home with a surprise for me and it was this concealer from Yves Saint Laurent! Honestly, I couldn't be happier since it can do miracles but my mum and I always shared one, until now. Also very nice is that it is a gift edition so I got a little mascara as well.
- Rituals 24H Hydrating Gel Cream : A day cream that is very fresh. With the temperatures being higher it is nice to use but two months ago I wasn't too pleased with it because I found it too fresh to wear in colder temps, I liked the Rituals day cream from my mum -who has the Essential Anti-Aging Day Cream- a lot more, the texture and scent are just more 'my thing'. But for spring and summer the cream, well it's a gel actually, is perfect. 
- Hema hand- and nail cream : This hand cream is probably one of the best beauty buys ever! It is super cheap, €1.50, very nice to put on your hands and it smells so good. Once I start, I can't stop. I sometimes even use it in the middle of the night when I wake up! 
- Catrice red lipstick : Since a few weeks I am the very proud owner of my first red lipstick. Yes, you're reading it right, I didn't have a red lipstick before myself. I thought that it was about time so I bought one, a pretty cheap one, €3.99, because it is not that I am going to wear it on an everyday base. I was surprised about the quality and softness of the lipstick when I first tried on this lipstick, definitely a good buy. 
These were the beauty products I wanted to show you, if you have a question about them or you want a review from a product, let me know in the comment section :)

WORDS | Collect moments


When I am writing this it is almost midnight and I just got home from a trip to Rotterdam, the Netherlands. 
This quote may look a bit 'weird' on a fashion blog since fashion has lots to do with things but in the end, what do you remember? Things or memories from funny, lovely, special moments?
I am not saying that you don't have to buy anything, I know that I won't leave that Chanel 2.55 in the shop if I had the money, but what I want to say is that maybe we should invest more in moments that make us happy -a citytrip, going a day somewhere, a festival, a vacation or something else that you love to do- instead of buying another pair of jeans or shoes. 
This is definitely not an attack on you because I'm guilty of buying another thing of this/that as well, it is a reminder to me, you, us.

SHOP | Mise en Dior earrings : the real versus the deal



The double pearl earrings from Dior, called the 'Mise en Dior' earrings, are hot! Since they came out a few months ago you could spot celebs, it-girls and fashionistas wearing them. 
There are lots of DIY's over the internet but if you're not that crafty and are lusting over these beauties, don't worry because I've found some look-a-likes for you! 
While the real ones cost $290, these from the webshop Modemusthaves only cost €16,95 (about $23,49). That's what I call a pretty good deal! Don't you?

Here is the link to them : http://www.modemusthaves.com/nieuw/pearl-ear-white.html

LIFE | Instagram #9


Some weeks have past so it is time for a little Instagram update. Apart from letting my followers know that there was a new blogpost online I wasn't very active on Instagram the past two months. The main reason for this is that I've been sick a few times (migraine, stomach flu, etc). 
Besides those crappy days there were if course also nice things that happened so let's take a look at that! 
If you want to follow me, look for 'lyndesloovere' , see you on Instagram!

WORDS | I love you


If you follow me on Twitter (@lyndesloovere) or on Instagram (lyndesloovere) you may already have noticed that I am in the love mood. The reason for this is that yesterday was the fifth anniversary of my love and I! Reason enough to be completely high in the sky with my head, if you ask me. 
One of the most beautiful things you can say to someone is that you love them so this 'quote' couldn't have a better timing! (Since every week I pick out some words that have a reference to my life at the moment)
Go work on those languages and spread the love! 
Much love, xo Lyn
