A Healthy Life | Kuvings Slow Juicer

1.30.2015



About a month ago, my dad and stepmom decided to buy the Kuvings B6000S Slow Juicer. My first reaction was: How on earth could you spend € 400 on a juicer?!

Well, I'm still happy that I didn't spend my money on it, but lawd this slowjuicer has become by BFF!

My Beauty Wishlist

1.28.2015

Even though I don't really "need" more make-up than I already have, there are always new products on my wishlist. A lot of the things on my list are products I just can't afford right now... Gosh.. Make-up can be so expensive! Oh well, maybe someday. When I win the lottery. ;-)


The low quality of this Polyvore set is killing me, but I've spend a lot of time on this so hopefully it won't bother you too much.

What's on your wishlist? Let me know!

Love,

Simone






Rituals scented candles

1.26.2015


Scented candles are heaven to me. First of all, I like it when my room smells nice and fresh. Second of all, I like the atmosphere candles provide. They give me a feeling of tranquillity and cosiness. 

I also have a great love for Rituals, and I already have a lifetime supply of shower gels and body oils. When I discovered the Rituals scented candles for the first time, it felt like it was meant to be. Without any hesitation I bought the two scented candles that were available at the store and I completely fell in love with them.

This post isn’t going to be a review, I just wanted to show you a product that I really love. 

What's your mission? | Q&A a day

1.23.2015



What's your mission? What's missing in your life right now? Two and a half years ago, my friends gave me this amazing journal called 'Q&A a Day'. I can explain to you how cool this journal is in a very boring way, but I found a much better description and it explains perfectly what I like so much about this Q&A journal!

My favourite moisturizer: Yes to Cucumbers

1.18.2015


In this post I want to share my favourite moisturizer with you. It's cheap, it's soothing, it's fresh, I'm so in love with it! It's the Yes to Cucumbers daily calming facial moisturizer.


Bedrooms

1.13.2015


My bedroom is probably the most important room in my house for me. It's my own little sanctuary where I can calm down and just be by myself, if necessary. Therefore, I'm very happy that I was able to completely decorate my room to my own taste. 

I can be defined as a neat freak, clothes on the floor or an untidy desk is very rare in my bedroom. Before I go to sleep, I always make sure that my room is clean and tidy. If you're looking for tips on how to clean up your room, you've come to the right place! Before I post any articles devoted to cleaning, I'd like to show you some pictures i've made. I grabbed my Canon650D and i tried to capture my room in a way that it reflects me as a person.



Budget: KIKO Make Up

1.11.2015

One of my favorite make-up brands is KIKO, without a doubt. KIKO Milano originated from Italy (as the name already states). I therefore first came across this brand when i was celebrating my holidays in Florence. When I entered a KIKO store for the first time, the first thing that caught my eye was the infinite range of eyeshadow colors and nail polish. And it got even better! Their product-pricing got me even more excited. 

DIY: Memory Jar 2015

1.09.2015


One of my resolutions of last year was to become more aware of all the amazing things that happened to me, but I had no idea how to do this. Early 2014 I discovered the Memory Jar DIY-project. Since 2015 has just begun, I thought it would be cool to share this idea with you!

A Memory Jar is a nice simple way to pay more attention to special events in your life, and relive them at the end of the year. Everytime something special or amazing happens throughout the year, you write it down on a small piece of paper and you pop it into the jar! At the end of the year, you take out all the pieces of paper and you read back over all of the amazing things that happend that year.


H&M New Season Spring/Summer '15

1.08.2015



When I came home yesterday, I almost stepped on the new fashion catalog from H&M. I always love to browse through their new items and when the fashion catalog comes out they always give out a code that provides free delivery on your next order. Hooray!


Polyvore winteroutfits

1.05.2015

I really wanted to make a post with my own photos, but unfortunately it was so dark outside today that I couldn't get the lightening right. So for today I decided to make a post with outfits created with Polyvore! I've always used Looklet to make outfits, but unfortunately for some reason the site doesn't work anymore... :( I'm not that familiar with Polyvore, but I think the outfits I made turned out pretty good... Let me know what you think!


Winter outfit #1





So we start off with a simple outfit (this was my first set every made, so don't be hard on me please! haha)

This is something I'd wear on a daily basis. While a lot of girls wear black during the winter, I personally think that it's very important to wear something white now and then. The boots in this set are an exact replica of a pair that I own. I absolutely love them. You can combine it with almost every outfit and I think they're classy and rebellious at the same time. 

For the accessories I decided to go with a gold watch and bracelet (although I'll never be able to afford that Cartier bracelet, that doesn't keep me from including it in my set!).

And last but not least, a fuzzy wintercoat and nice warm scarf, and for a pop of colour a purple classy bag. I think every woman should own a bright coloured bag, to cheer up their outfit if necessary. 



Winter outfits #2

For the next outfit I chose something elegant but can still be worn on a daily basis. Although it is winter and it is cold, don't neglect your crop tops! You can still wear them, especially when they're made of wool or another fabric that'll keep you warm. To avoid a complete black outfit I decided to go with a bordeaux-coloured skirt. When it comes to jewelry, I kept it simple. I absolutely love those triangle earrings!

You can either choose to wear heals with this look or just comfy flat shoes, it just depends on the situation! I must admit that I'm really proud of this look because it's a very decent look that you can wear at a lot of different occasions.

Let me know what you think!

Love,

Simone

Clinique Chubby Stick (intense)

1.01.2015


The Clinique Chubby Sticks are many beauty bloggers' favorite. And I must admit, when I owned my first Chubby Stick, I was sold. The Clinique Chubby Stick feels like a lip balm, but at the same time has a hint of colour in it. After the normal Chubby Sticks proved to be a great success, Clinique introduced a variation: Chubby Stick intense. It's the perfect combination of a nourishing lip balm and a well-pigmented lipstick.

As a Christmas present, I've got one of each! And because I am full of praise about this product, I couldn't resist on writing a review.

Crush on Blush




Hello everyone!

Today, 01-01-2015, Crush on Blush is officially up in the air! It's the first day of 2015 and I'm very happy to, after hours of editing in HTML and searching for the perfect template, I'm ready to post my first article. Nothing special, just an introduction.

I must say that it feels a little weird to blog again. Over the last four years I've kept about five blogs, but when I read some posts back I'm almost ashamed about my use of language and layout, hehe. Meanwhile, I've become a little older and that can also be noticed when it comes to my writing style. The main reason for me to start blogging again is because I have so many thoughts about all kinds of things, and this blog is the perfect place to share my thoughts and ideas!




I will not stick to one subject, no. I want to blog about everything I like. The name 'Crush on Blush' already reveals one of my passions: I love everything that has to do with beauty. Many people link beauty to fashion, I can't say that I have a talent for putting great outfits together, but I always try my best! If I happen to be really content with my outfit, I'll make sure to make an OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) about it. ;-)



I'm also really into food related things. I've tried many different food-lifestyles and I like to try out new recipes. I try to eat healthier, but I have a real sweet tooth so to eat healthy is quite a challenge for me. You'll find healthy meals as well as comfort food here! I can't wait to share my recipes and food-experiences with you!



I'm not going reveal any more details about my future blog posts, follow my blog and you'll see what I have in store!

Love,

Simone
