OOTD: That blazer, again

Two outfit posts in a row in which I'm wearing a similar piece, that must mean I love wearing it. You might have noticed it before with my blue Primark shoes with white dots, which I wore non-stop for four weeks or something. And now it's with this blazer:

It actually is a simple dark blue blazer, single buttoned, from H&M. I love it for its simplicity and for the various ways I can wear it. Underneath the blazer I was wearing a denim on denim look and while both denims are of the same colour, thanks to the blazer there's sort of a contrast.

OOTD: Searching for blossoms

Two weeks ago I walked the ground behind my house and I noticed the trees that stood there were in full bloom. Unfortunately there was nobody home to take a picture of me with them, so I decided to come back the week after that to take pictures hoping the blossoms wouldn't have disappeared by then. Of course I forgot and when I came back there this weekend the blossoms were already gone. Nevertheless we took some pictures of my outfit with the not-so-much-in-bloom tree. :p

NOTD: Easter nails

Happy Easter everyone! Today I want to show you how my nails were looking this Easter. I really wanted to do a gradient again, which I spiced a little up with some striping tape and this is the result:

Tutorial: How to take off nail polish with cotton balls

Today I want to show you how you can take off nail polish without damaging your nails by rubbing it with toilet paper (as I used to do). I've got this hint from a friend of mine who found it on the internet one day and she passed her discovery on to me because she knew how much I adore painting my nails. This method is incredibly easy and all you need is this:

NOTD: Mermaid me

Ariel has never been my favourite Disney character; Snow White was. But since I'm into Disney characters as inspiration for nail arts and I've already done a Snow White one, I'm having mermaid on my nails right now.

Crush: Bun holder

My hair noticed the warmer weather too: every time the temperature rises above 10 degrees and I'm on my second day after having washed my hair I tend to put my hair in a bun. And now I've found a great expansion to my regular bun or even a donut bun: Bun. Holders. (Alternatively called: bun surround or bun hairband) I've listed my favourites, but this one is my ultimate favourite:

Extremely pretty, right? Imagine walking around in Summer with this piece of awesomeness in your hair!

NOTD: Snow White's Nails

When I painted my various nail designs in my All Things Pink blog post, I used white as the base colour. I was so excited to put all sorts of designs on my white nails that I didn't leave them untouched. However, the white nails caught my attention and I decided to make a white only nail design soon. And that time has come.

Shoplog: Antwerp time!

Being/Trying to be a fashion blogger, needless to say I love shopping. Lately I've been spending a lot of time shopping on line, but on Wednesday I've spent an adorable day doing some shopping in Antwerp with a friend. It was exhausting, since I was still a little ill, but so much fun! And I came home with adorable pieces, YAY!

Dreaming dreams

In my latest post about my dreams you could read I wasn't that motivated anymore. I've been thinking since then about my dreams and I've decided to change my year dreams and to spice my month dreams a little up.

NOTD: Dotted sugar plum

Last week was incredibly busy: I had to hand in an essay of 2000 words by Friday and at the start of the week I fell ill, so my writing schedule was reduced to a memory of my good intentions. Luckily I made it and I even succeeded in painting my nails on Friday while typing. That wasn't a good plan, which you will see on the pictures, but at least I tried. Another thing I tried was my new nail pens from Primark, which you could read about here.
This is the result:
