Toni and guy Toni&Guy Marchesa limited edition damaged hair shampoo

Cleanse shampoo for damaged hair 

To celebrate their 10-year anniversary and new collection at London Fashion Week, British design partners Marchesa have partnered with TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe to create a new Limited Edition range. I have the shampoo from this range and I have been testing it. I adore Georgina Chapman who is a judge on project runway and I think the design on this bottle really screams her name.
Glitter nailart nails hexagon holografic

Review & video tutorial

Recently I got these glitters from bornprettystore. I accually really adore nail art but I never tried to use loose glitter. I had some trail and error with this product but in the end I found a foolproof way to apply these to your nails in a pretty way. I had so much filming this tutorial but I do have to admit that it was my first time and I already found a lot of things that I would love to improve. Still it is a very good video if you have some glitter powder that you want to use. Keep reading for the review and tutorial.

ebelin DM nailpolish remover nail polish

Lazy Girl Nail polish remover

I do not ask for a lot of things, but I get intensely happy for easy ways to remove nail polish, that and a good pizza. I was debating on writing this blog post, why would people want to read about a nail polish remover. Still I decided to write about this one because I feel not so many people know how these things work, or even that these things exist. 
Stormy mirage lipstick P2 beauty goes safari light pink

Stormy Mirage / Illusion

One of my biggest flaws is that I often grab and run when I buy lipsticks, no need to swatch just look and pay. I already knew that I wanted a lipstick from Beauty goes Safari the new limited edition from P2. There are three shades in the collection coral, red and the one I picked a light pink. You can see all colors here. I first had the idea that Stormy mirage [or illusions as the shade is listed on the site] was a lavender shade but it is a very light pink. 

dark red nails tattoo feather triangle silver black gold flash flashtattoo

Super cheap and pretty

Let me start by saying I am sorry that this blogpost is so image heavy. I snapped a lot of pictures because I wanted to show the true potential of this product. And because there so so many designs I decided to take a lot of pictures. Before asking you to read more, I want to point out that these sheets are $0.82 what is super cheap.

Maybelline super stay forever strong 7 days gel nail color rouge couture 287 midnight red flash tattoo red nails silver ring feather

Rouge Couture - 287 -  Midnight Red

Last month I was talking with my mom that my nail polish stay is to large to handle, I might said "I will not buy any new nail polish!" Looking back I am a weak person because this month I bought two new polishes, but they were a euro cheaper so I had to take advantage. I bought two polishes from Maybelline. As you can see I got Rouge couture midnight red a stunning blood red shade. I also have Mint for life, I am not sure if I will be showing that one off in a blogpost or keep it for a nail art. But today I want to show off my favorite new nail polish.

I had some trail and error with these but in the end I had so much with this and it looked amazing. I made the love inspired nailart that you can see above, and after the cut I have a holiday themed manicure and some mermaid nail art. So keep on reading!

So I have a new camera, I think many know that I have a large Canon 1000D and it serves me well to take product pictures.  I am still debating if I want to review my new camera, the samsung NX mini. But today this blogpost will feature my snapshots that I took this week. It was so fun having my camera with me and taking pictures, I do have to admit that I still need to get the hang of it...kind of awkward to pull out my camera, but I am learning. So read more for all my pictures of the week!


revlon beauty lipstick lipgloss sunbaked kylie jenner

Can I say Kylie Jenner lip color?

As I said in my last lipgloss review, I am not a lipgloss kind of girl yet it seems like I am still buying loads. I tend to wear gloss when I have my hair up because nothing is more horrible then hair sticking to your lips. Still I needed this in my life because I found a discount and it reminds me of the Kylie Jenner lipcolor that everybody is raving about. 

lantern fruit wtf what the fruit physalis bladdercherry vitamin berry

Lantern fruit

Are also called Physalis or the sexy name...bladder cherry.  It is a fruit that you can eat but they are also used as ornamental plants. These berries have calcium, iron, vitamin A en C. This berry grows all year round in Columbia, but I bought this in Germany because I felt this looked funky enough for a blogpost.
list week camera selfie girl cat false lashes

This week I bought a new camera, I experimented with my hair and I got nice ideas for a new blog style.
  • Getting 40 likes on instagram on a selfie, I never expected that. [on this picture.]
  • Finding Maybelline Super Stay 7 nail polish on sale, I got mint for life & Midnight red
  • Finding out that the Samsung NX mini was 100 euro cheaper then normal
  • Finding out that if I leave purple shampoo in my hair for 45 minutes my hair turns an amazing shade of gray/silver/white blonde. Also it is cheaper and better then dye.
  • This video of a great man being nice to an autistic child
  • Discovering a new Pokemon game for the 3DS, it is called rumble word and it is highly addictive
  • Getting my two statement necklaces just in time for a party.
  • I also got three new packages for false lashes, and I am in love! I never wore false lashes but it looks really lovely when taking pictures as you can see above. Also I never wear light lipstick, but the above picture is for a review.
Also not part of my list, but I want to mention that I need to improve my blog. The lay-out has been bothering me and I have been playing around with more black and white and less color. I want to make a more mature theme for my blog. Also I am dabbling with an own domain and I hope to get it online on my birthday. 6th of July! But it could also be after that because I have school and I need to finish a lot of things.

My galaxy lipgloss

At times you feel like you should step out of your comfort zone and just buy something you would never buy. I went for a lip gloss from Collistar their shock line. They have 8 shocking glosses and I decided to go for a decent shocking color, fuchsia. The tube reminded me of a galaxy and I needed to have this in my collection. I am not sure yet what kind of occasion would justify me wearing this, but I will be sure to find one.

Today I have an update article for you. A nice little article that tells you [with perhaps some moving images] what new items there are in store and I have a nice little free website for mothers-day. So keep on reading and check it out! 


mint nail art nailart hearts bornprettystore born pretty store teal cute lovely

Mint hearts

I got an other lovely plastic container full of mint hearts that are made for nail-art or decorating your stuff. Today i am going to show you how I used this and with what color nail polishes I paired these cute little hearts. It was my first time trying to glue something like this to my nails, so I had some trail and error trying to make these look amazing. I am really happy with the end result and these tiny heart decorations for nail art. So keep on reading.

Addicted to metal

This week I ordered two statement necklaces and the week before that I also ordered one. I am really hooked on metal round my neck for spring. It can be classy but still while look unique. I decided to make a blogpost featuring my favorite neckcandy, I think it is really inspiring and In hope you do feel the same...

nail decals key lock black white

Keys and locks

Recently I got very pretty nail decals from Bornprettystore. I got one sheet with a variety of locks, keys and some crosses. All black nail decals so I can do a lot of different styles with this, you can go full summer with bright neon's but also classy black on white. You can add only one to your nails but you can also go wild and make your all over print. So enough blabbering in my intro, read more for information and of coarse, pictures!

Day-cream SPF 25

Recently I received DR van der Hoog CC day cream with SPF 25. I am going to start with saying that I took no pictures of me wearing this product because I got medium and my skin really needs light. Still I wanted to show you how this product looks and tell you a bit about it because it is a great product. I am only to light for it at the moment for the medium shade.

In love with amber for spring

Amber is fossilized tree resin and I always felt like I should own something with this stone. My mother has a pair of earrings with these stones and I wanted to own my own. While my mom has long drop earrings I decided to get myself some tiny studs. Something to wear everyday and I need to admit that these are really expensive. You can see my studs above, but if you click read more you will see a lot of budget amber earrings. From long earrings to tiny studs.


Intensely nourished hair

Toni & Guy nourish reconstruction mask for intensely nourished hair, it is a very long name and I prefer to call this my go-to-hair-mask for when my hair needs a boost. My hair is dyed to white blonde and I tend to curl it from time to time, to keep my hair healthy I need a good hair mask once in a while. I do believe that Toni & Guy is an great brand with salon quality products.

Polette Butterfly

Recently I got the chance to order a pair of sunglasses from Polette, a site that I discovered on instagram. I fell in love with the stylish sunglasses and normal glasses. I wear my glasses daily and I love the fact that on Polette you can get a modern pair of glasses for a soft price. With the first rays of sunshine hitting Holland I decided to go for sunglasses. And I am in love!

April #1

Recently I was added to some press lists, and because at the moment I feel that I get enough emails with information I decided to share it in a new kind of article. I have been dabbling with how I want to present the news to you all because I personally hate blog posts with just boring old images and information. I wanted to have playful collages, some animated and some not animated. Also I decided not to put in everything that is new, but only the things that I am excited about or what catches my interest. It is just a nice fun article with a lot of new things! [Also I am not sure about News@Denna, does it sound okay?]


I have to say that lately I have been obsessed with home work-outs and listing to fit radio. Normally I do not go crazy about apps and expecially not fitness apps. I am a daily user of the fitbit app and a tracker for my macro's but workout music, I had nothing till I found fit radio.

Fit radio is a music app that has everything you need, from pop to hiphop to party to country to electronic to the classics and rock. You can pick a station that has beats of 128BPM or 70-100BPM. There are so many stations to pick from and the best mixes. Also you can pick stations like 5K run or 10K run, there is a collection for heavy lifters and for people who do Zumba. You can play the station that has spin music or perhaps kickboxing. And my favorite is the tabata station that countsdown at the 20 second mark for 4 minute tracks. Not into intensive sports? They also have yoga, spa and lounge playlists.

I think it is a great app for people who work-out at home. Also it is a free app that you can get at  Itunes and Google play

Forever Rosewood

Got a secret can you keep it swear this one you'll save......Any pretty little liars in the house who love the Rosewood name of this product? I might have bought this because it is named forever rosewood. But I also think the color is very basic, just a simply matte shade for summer.

So keep reading to know more about this Pandora Heart Ring also this should be a great mothers day gift. 
Toni & Guy Volume texture mattifying powder texture sculpting powder hair product

Mattifying volume & texture

I got a surprise box with some Toni & Guy products, I payed a small amount for a full box of products. Sadly enough the box is sold out, but when I see an other similar deal I will share it om blog. Now let us talk about my two new favorite guys Toni & Guy. I have to start with saying that I am not real big on sculpting powders or other powder products, I tend to stick to dry shampoo to get volume and matte hair. But still I took the plunge and tested this Mattifying volume and texture sculpting powder from the casual line from Toni & Guy.

With Grapefruit and Lime

I never tried Dr Van Der Hoog products before but recently I got a whole set of the purity line. I first decided to review the scrub because I recently finished the L'oral cleanpod I really liked the product to use twice a week so I went out an searched for a new scrub product to replace it with. So want to hear what I think about this scrub?

6 pretty things.

Recently I grabbed a few things from eBay. Just random things that might or might not get their own blogpost debating on what you want to see. Leave me a comment if you really want a review for one of these items.

Because my old cover broke I got myself two covers from headcase. I have a link to the seller because they have a load of pretty covers for different kind of models. You can check them out here. I picked the two styles you can see top left in my collage. The first one reminded me of my cat and the second reminded me of a mermaid. So I had to get both, also I got a 50% discount on my second cover.

Then I got the biggest tip if you are a fitbit wearer like me. Fit Bit bands are dirty cheap on eBay. I ordered myself three colors, bright pink, mint and yellow. I feel ready for summer! These are $0.99 - $2.45

This white lace dress I already have at home. For only 8 dollar this is a lovely buy. As a dress I can not fit it but it goes perfectly with a black skirt. If you want a unique pretty blouse I would advice this one.

Headbands have been my lifesaver on bad hair days, this headband. Reminds me of a scarf and it does not slip out of your hair with

and the last was very random this bracelet was something I had to order because it is only $1.14 and pretty.

[1] [2] [3] [4] 

The weather is getting a bit warmer and I tend to wear blouses with this weather. Normally I wear them with a statement necklace but lately that has been boring me so I googled for alternative ways to glam up my blouse. I came across these collar clips en pins from eBay. And I listed my favorites for you if you keep on reading...

New in, simple daily bracelet

My dad recently got me a new gold bracelet, as a little 'just because today was a lovely day' kind of gift. He bought for himself a thick gold bracelet and he bought me a thin one with stones. Normally I am not really a big fan of thin bracelets because they are hard to close, yet this bracelet actually is very easy to put on myself without having to beg for help. Also because it was a discount item, I am sharing links so you all can get yourself a lovely gold/silver or rose gold bracelet.

Golden Syrup oat bars

Oats, oats, oats. I am hooked on eating oats every morning and I even wrote in this blogpost about my favorite brand for oats. Today I will be taking about an other oat product that I recieved. The Golden Syrup bar. A mix of oats and honey....

Royals & Drag race

Watching tv-shows is something that I do daily. I am most of the times running something in the background while doing my make-up, eating or taking pictures. Recently one of the favorite shows had a new season and there was also a new show that I started to follow. So today I am going to tell you a bit about these two shows.

ebay earrings silver double dot

Similar to Dior Tribal

I was debating on getting real Dior Tribal earrings, but I wanted to know if I would be wearing this style of earrings so I decided to buy a pair for only $0.79 on eBay and see how much I loved wearing this. I also listed what I tought about these after wearing them for a few days and I also added cheap links to these earrings. 

Heart ring - in clear

I really wanted an open heart ring from Pandora and because there was a 50% discount that is still going on here I decided to order my mom a lovely ring. I picked a normal heart ring for her with a clear stone. This is a link to the e-store where I bought mine. This ring also comes in red and pink. But to be honest I know my mom loves the clear stone and will be wearing this more then a red or pink version. I do have to admit that the moment I got this, I debated to get myself one in pink. But that is for an other day. Let me tell you about my first experience with the Pandora e-store and 

Spam your blog

And I will try to visit all the blogs I see here.

Sylvie nails stickers star hearts heart stars leopard

Stars, leopard and hearts

Recently when shopping in a discount store I came across Sylvie nails. I got lucky and I found packs with three styles but normally they come in a pack with only one style. I bought 5 packs of these Sylvie nails and I have 72x5 stickers so I can use these a lot. I actually have used these a few times but I felt today was the day to review these.

Very bohemian

I am a big gemstone girl, I love the layered bohemian festival kind of look. And I keep buying different kind of gemstone pendants. I love the fact that I eBay has so many different styles, and every style comes in a variety of stones. I already showed you all my rose quartz pendulum shaped pendant and many of my favorite styles of pendant but today I want to show my pointed arrow kind of necklace.

P2 rich care and color so fresh 040 oxygen nailpolish nail polish mint

040 So fresh

So fresh has been in my collection for a while. I was debating on reviewing it because it is a polish that I grab once in a while. The color is not that great as you can see in the swatches, but I do think that this polish or an other color of this collection would be a great staple in your nail polish stash when you wear a lot of nail polish. 
maybelline color drama pink so chic lip pencil lippencil

Intense velvet lip pencil: Pink so chic

I am really a lip product kind of girl and I had to get this product because I have nothing similar to this style of product. It is more like an enlarged lip liner then a product like the bourjois colorboost lipsticks. I have been using this a lot the last few days and I personally feel this is really an dramatic color that is really unique. Not so much pink as the name implies but you will see that on the swatches.

Lovely shades of blue

I have been really loving the color blue with variations of turquoise and mint and I decided to make an inspirational collage with items that I think are lovely. I actually wanted to make a complete outfit but I found two bags that really adored so I decided to go on an accessories road.

ALDO Tano - €48.95
Anna Field Shopper  - €29.95
Style London Envelope Clutch Bag - €51.92 but currently on sale for €30.06
Sunpocket Samoa Round Foldable Sunglasses - €88.88 but currently on sale for €51.92

My favorite has to be the clutch bag, it looks amazing and the color is great paired with the gold. It actually reminds me of a mulberry bag lock.
What is your favorite?

Because hate is a big word

Blogging is a great thing to do, I actually motivated other people to start blogging. It is fun and get to be creative doing what you want to do. Also it is great to combine with an education. If you want a break from studying? Just start taking pictures or writing articles. But there are some thing that you need to consider, especially when you are open about blogging to friends and family. You will get questions....
