hair color update


A month or two after my last color session, I decided I wanted something new. 
I've always colored it in the 7 - 8 range with a 20 developer. 
About a year or so ago, I used this L'oreal Preference Ombre kit in number 3, which is the girl on the right of you (the one with the long hair and the lightest blond). This is the color I initially used, because I have natural blondish hair and my ends have always been lighter than my roots. So no need for me to go for the kit for darkest hair to begin with. 

However, before I will continue, I will quickly say that, last time I used this kit, I was SUPER happy about it: no brassy hair color, really pretty ombre effect going from a dark blond/brown to a warm toned mid blond and then lighter blond ends. I cannot exactly remember what technique I used to apply the color, but I wanted to avoid the two colored chopped hair, so I used a technique to gradually get the hair lighter, which, at the time, really worked out for me. 

Now comes the however part :)

Get a glimpse of my interior


This is my latest furniture: two really pretty desk lamps that I put next to the fire place, and a holder that says News for newspapers :) 
I was on the hunt for these kind of lamps to have next to my couch but I only found really expensive ones. These are a good alternative: they still have a similar interior deco effect without being overly expensive. I think I paid about 20 dollars for them. 
The news stand cost me 15 dollars. 
As the theme in my house is rather "white" based, I really like to always grab similar light colors. I just get bored very easily with colors.. Sometimes, I wish I liked it, because then I could go wild and crazy with what I pick for my interior, but... It seems to stress me out more than be beautiful to the eye :D


They give a very decent amount of light, and in the evenings, I prefer this lighting instead of my ceiling lights, it just gives that extra cozy vibe I absolutely LOVE! 


Here, you can see my table I transformed when I talked about 4 months ago about re inventing an old coffee table. I scratched off all the old paint and dust and started from the bottom up. I decided to paint a striped foot piece with the help of some tape and verrrryyyy pretty golden bronzed paint. I did not want to make it too messy and aggressive, so I chose not to paint the same pattern on the sides. There, I decided to go for egg white / ivory paint that is suitable for wood. And voila, my table is done :) 
I think this is a 40 year old table btw... 
On top of that is an Ikea plate, I absolutely love black and white stripes. It feels a little colonial to me.
I placed a Zara home vase with some fake flowers for Christmas, and next to that I put a Zara home Christmas candle which has the same color as the flowers, and in real life, also as the paint on the table.
Behind that you will be able to see my couch. You can guess my colors are basically grey and white, with some hints of gold :) I like to make my couch extra comfy by placing a million cushions. I can then also alternate between several pillow fabrics to change up the mood in my apartment.
It is a great and very affordable way to spice up your deco. Pillows can be found at Ikea for about 6 dollars, and the textile, you can even make yourself! It is really not that hard..
Merry Christmas everyone!
If you are into vlogs, maybe you will like my Vlogmas video I will put up on my Youtube channel later on today.. You will have a sneak peek of what my life looks like :)

OOTD December 2013


I bought these pants in River Island, and I fell in love with how the sequin is not too much out there. Every girl loves shiny things, and that's why I just needed to have these pants in my life haha :)
I paired them with Zara boots, which you can barely see on this picture.. A white tee from Topshop, my cardigan with leather sleeves from Maje and my new necklace from Zara. 
Today was Christmas shopping day, so we went out to the city for some good old fashioned Christmas gifts. However, once we arrived in the city, I think the whole country had the same idea.. There were queues EVERYWHERE. Nevertheless, we took it upon us to just go with the flow and buy the gifts we had in mind. 
I also purchased new tea and coffee, because if there is anything I can get equally excited about as make up, it has to be tea :D or fake coffee (coffee with LOADS of milk and foam Njum!) 
I bought rose tea, which I am obsessed with atm. Rose infusion tea, rose earl grey tea, you name it, I have it or have to buy it :) 
Speaking of tea, today is Sunday, and I am about to put the kettle on for a cup of tea with a biscuit and watch The Heat. I started watching it a couple of days ago but never got around to watch it to the end, but I laughed out loud on my own several times, which means it is a good movie! 
Lots of love x
Next post will be a collective haul of what I bought in Rotterdam!

Christmas time!!!

 Look what I bought today! :) We went quickly for breakfast and in the shop my eye fell on this little fellow. How cute is he? It came with a set to make a hot cocoa with marshmallows, njum! I think I will make myself a cup of that now. 
This morning, I already felt better (I explained this in my last video:




And so, because Ikea is having a special sale on their Christmas trees (1 for 5 euros!!) we went quickly to Ikea to get our Christmas tree. There were already a lot of people in front of us... We were sure to be the first ones coming up very early to the store, but I guess we were wrong :D 

I already pulled out all my Christmas deco to decorate the tree tomorrow or on Sunday! 

My colors will be red, white and golden. I love it! 

Now, I am going to drink my hot cocoa, because a storm is coming and I just want to curl up in my blanket and rest some more. 

Talk to you soon!

Black Friday Haul (and a little rant)


Hi there! 
I went shopping.. and I went big hahaha. 
At least, for my wallet I went big :) 
So first I started buying these awesome wooden heeled boots at Zara which are very similar to the Jeffrey Campbell ones but slightly more payable. 
I will have to pick them up from the store today so I will make a blogpost about that later in an outfit look or something. I am already COMPLETELY obsessed with those boots (yes, I have eyed them several times online ever since I bought them) so I will definitely want to share them with you guys :) 



Next, I bought some furniture or deco stuff at Zara Home. It is my absolute favorite deco store to shop: stuff is super original, not tooo expensive, and good quality. 

I bought a new lamp cap because mine was just random in plastic from Ikea (barf). This one is black and white striped and looks like this:

Giorgio Armani makeup class


Heyaalll, 

A couple of days ago, I went to a Giorgio Armani makeup class. 
It lasted for about 3 good hours, and I learned all about their newest makeup and treatment line.. 
Let's get right into it :)
Small disclaimer: You are about to read my honest opinion about the products I used and learned about.. You might not like how honest I am but I just want you to save that penny for something better I think... So here we go..

Travel tips: Malaysia shopping, hotels, restaurants

Look at that view....
That was my holiday in Malaysia, such a pretty country. I promised I'd do a blog post on my holiday - so with a little delay, here it is :-)

 We decided to try out different hotels, so we ended up choosing around 5 or 6 in total, going from Kuala Lumpur, to Penang, to Langkawi and back to Kuala Lumpur. In all, we stayed there for about two weeks. This is a picture taken in Langkawi where we stayed at this really pretty hotel with a Jacuzzi, swimming pool and a beach front view. If you opt for beach front rooms, you will get a nice little patio for yourself with chairs where you can hang out and look at the see :) 
They are also specialized in making it EXTRA romantic because when it is good weather, you can sit on the beach at a table looking at this view:

MAC Devine Night Holiday Colour Collection 2013


Hi there! 
Today I am back, and I can proudly say: Oops, I did it again. :-)
I went shopping at Mac for another load of makeup I probably don't even need... But it is like candy to kids, so I simply cannot resist it. 
I saw Mac came out with the Devine Night Holiday collection, and I was eager to go and buy that really pretty pink nude lipstick. If you read parts of my life, or watch me on Youtube, you might already know that the most fun thing for me to buy are lipsticks.. so I just add them to my collection, cause I know I will wear them a lot. (Probably almost every day)

TUMBLR OBSESSED




If you click the title of this post (My little dream world) it will redirect you to my newest Social Networking Site: Tumblr. 

It is so crazy. I have seen so many tumblrs but never really thought about having one of my own. 
I now don't understand why I didn't give this a shot sooner. 
I am completely obsessed :D - guilty...

I registered under my name, Awomansaffair, about 4 hours ago and I kid you not: I've been on it non stop ever since.
I looked for a lot of pictures that I like, which brings me in a specific mood, or just describe or make me feel exactly the way I once have felt (or a couple of times) or feel at the moment. 
Such pretty pictures, and some funny movie quotes too :) haha. 

Do you guys have any tumblrs? I really want to find new ones cause I can spend days and days on this! 
AAaaaah I should go to bed, but something tells me I won't be able to stop collecting photos 

Sweet Dreams

Lookbook Diary: 3 wearable looks for fall



Hellow :) 
These are three looks I wore the other week and they kept me nice and warm during fall! 
I really like wearing over the knee socks but it is always a struggle to find a wearable outfit without putting it "all out there" - if you know what I mean :)
The two on the sides are more laid back looks that feel like wearing a jogging but outside, I love me some leggings haha. It is really our little secret of just looking ok but seriously feeling awesome: no tight jeans cutting off your circulation, no high waisted nightmares, just soft material giving you the space to breath :D

Pretty Little Liars & Ravenswood ...


Have you seen the Halloween special of Pretty Little Liars? 
I have :) And I liked it, but I have to say, when comparing it to the Halloween special of last year... I preferred the one from last year over this one. Just because last year soooo many creepy and exciting things happened on that horror train :) So many answers but also so many questions were raised and at the end of the special episode, I remember everyone was left with sooo many questions. 
It was literally super difficult to have to wait for another couple of months for the season to be back and show us some pretty little secrets :) 
I have not been a fan of pretty little liars from the start, but throughout the second season, I was COMPLETELY sold. I loved the series and the intrigues and I would seriously count the days to be back at the beginning of the next week to see what happened on that show. It was literally THAT good.
And still is of course. 
After seeing the Halloween special, you will find out the answer to the most important question ever: Was Ally an illusion or is she in fact alive?

Coloring my hair with L'oreal Preference in Vienne 7

So... Remember my video on how to dye your hair professionally at home? 
Well, I was actually completely against boxes. These coloring boxes are just ... not the real deal. I've always just experimented with actual color tubes you buy at some professional hair supply store where the real hairdressers go shopping. Until this weekend. 
I've been super uper busy lately and well, my color was just fading out a little bit too much these last days (you could really see my actual hair color coming which is an ash blond so lighter but more meh than my colored hair). 
I was running around town like a crazy person but I could not go another day with a ponytail in my hair just because you could see my roots (Jaiks) so I just decided i'd buy one of these boxes in the supermarket while I was doing my groceries. I picked up this box because I have done the ombre look in my hair using the ombre kit from l'oreal and the boxes look a lot alike. 
Until I came home and saw this photo on the box at the top...

Rihanna Fall Makeup Mac Line makeup look without the Mac makeup :)



I really love purple lips... You might have seen that in one of the first videos I ever made on youtube explaining how to color your hair :)
I just bought "Up the amp" in that video, and I remember finding it such a surprising color but sooo pretty on the lips!

This month, Rihanna came out with a makeup line for Mac Cosmetics, rocking a deep purple lip with a nice eyeliner.

I tried to recreate this look but with alternative makeup products, because the line was already sold out when I wanted to buy something...  So if you are like me and you missed the line, or you just don't want to spend that extra cash, maybe you will have something in your closet that looks similar, or you could buy some of the makeup I used if you really want a similar color :) But mind that the photo is taken with flash which makes the colors fade out immensely :( I hate when that happens!!!
This is what I came up with :)

Come on holiday with me to Malaysia VLOG: Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Langkawi





Hi there :) 
I hope you are all well :) I had suuuuper issues with having Internet that's why my blogposts have been a little bit random and not up to date. I have recently also changed jobs (well the city I work in) so I have to commute a lot more which takes up sooo much time!!
I also just went to Paris and I bought some new stuff I will be showing in a blogpost!! I looooove Paris, and I discovered a whole new area that I want to share with you guys! 
Until then, I want to share little parts of my life with you from my trip to Malaysia. I hesitated doing this, cause sharing still freaks me out a little bit... I feel like it is personal but at the same time, I really enjoy watching other people's vlogs about their life and trips, so I thought after getting requests to do so, it would be a great idea to edit some of my footage. 
Enjoy :)

Lip Candy Sticks


Hi :)
Today's post will be on lip chubby sticks, popstick, color boost stick or however you wanna call them! 
I really liked when this trend came on the market, because it makes applying makeup super easy, plus you feel like a little girl rubbing the mega stick all over your lips. 
Even though the product really appeals to me, I have been rather disappointed about the product that is inside the stick.. 
I will give you a review of the following sticks, so you can see which colour you like the best! 

Topshop lipstick - Powder Room 
Topshop lipstick - Coy
Etude House Vivid POPstick - ?
Bourjois Color Boost - Peach on the Beach
Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm - Craving Coral

I just saw this - Ok ok maybe im super uber duper late with this news,

But I have no clue whether that's fo real.

What secrets do I keep in my bag?



I hope you enjoy this :) 
I normally do not have that much junk in my bag, but because I kept throwing my stuff from one bag into the other, I finally accumulated so much stuff I thought it would be fun to do a what's in my bag video. :) 
The bag in the video is from a brand called Vimoda. It is a French brand and because I got so many questions about where you can buy the bag and whether there is a link to the bag, I decided to contact the company to see if there is a possibility to buy internationally, or get a discount for you guys. 

I hope you like the cat as well.. I think this video features about 3 of them ;) 

Have a wonderful day!

Top series of the moment... what to watch?

My TOP 3 SERIES of the moment... 

The first series that I want to talk about is called UNDER THE DOME and is inspired by the Stephen King novel. I came across this only the other day but it exists for a while now. 
I really like thrillers and scary but not too scary plots and so to have that hint of sci fi combined with unsolved mystery and a little bit of action really made me want to start watching it. 
I have only watched two episodes so far but i really really like it a lot! 
I hate spoilers so I won't go too much into detail, but the story is about a little town being captured by a giant bubble. Because I am only at episode 2, not much is solved and a lot of questions are raised... 
I'm sure I will watch this until the end and maybe I gave you something to watch now :) who knows. 

The second series that I really like is PLL

My Summer must haves



Hey there!
I know this picture looks really bad, but I took a screenshot of my upcoming video. 
I went shopping over the last couple of weeks and bought some really cute items that I thought I'd share with you!
I started to edit my video but for some reason the program stopped and the editing work was gone, so I have to start all over again :)
That will be work for tomorrow.
Aaaahhh I can't believe how hot it is these days! I live pretty high up so the heat just travels its way up and makes my life very overheated atm.
I got so excited I wanted to make home made iced tea, but when I cut my orange, I accidentally cut my finger so half of my nail (just polished it grrr) and a piece of my skin is gone so I had to go to the ER. Ewwww... and also lost half a day bc of that. 
So typing now isn't going the easiest seeing I have a huuuuge finger to type with!
I am also very busy planning my trip... Remember my post on how I neeeeded a vacation desperately? Well, it has been decided: IM GOING TO MALAYSIA!!!!!
I am sooo excited about this!! I already went to Thailand once and I loved Asia sooo much that I am really happy to be able to go to Malaysia this time. I heard the shopping in Kuala Lumpur is insaaane... If anyone reads this and has been there/ lives there pls share some cool places with me! Any kind of info is welcome :) 
Ok, well I am going to watch the real housewives of the OC now. I am in the mood for some Tamra and Heather action :) 

Talk soon

Favorite Affordable Statement Necklaces


Hi everyone! 

Today I decided it was time to share with you some of my favorite (new, so you can run out the door and get them in the shops atm :) statement necklace pieces. 

They are all pretty big and chunky necklaces but that is what I really like. 
I used to be a super huge fan of long necklaces and did not want anything to close to my neck, but I completely reviewed my opinion on that. 
I even like chokers now! :) (so 90ies haha)

3 min makeup challenge!!!

Hahhaha :) 
Not much more to say.. Want to see how to get ready in 3 minutes? Watch this video :) 
I was tagged (like everyone else) by Bubbi to do this challenge and.. well, you can see the end result in my video :) 
It was a fun challenge and very stressful, cause seriously.. 3 minutes is NOTHING!!!
Normally I take about 30... 40... 50... an hour or so to get ready? So this was a real challenge for me.
My face feels abused :D my makeup was thrown on sloppy but I am still happy to know that in future, I will be able to DO THIS! 
Hurray for boys, who will no longer have to wait for hours ;)

New skincare



Hi! 

Because of a recent "extreme" break out (iewwww) I decided I should buy some new products for my skin. 
Maybe I used a product my skin didn't really like, or maybe my hormones are being a bit odd, in any case, it is sadly a fact at the moment that my skin is having some trouble...

It is really simple and the key to the look is blending! :)

Spring Lipsticks! :)

My absolute favorite spring lipstick of the moment is the Betty Bright from Mac. Unfortunately, it is a limited edition lipstick from the Archie's girls collection BUT you can still find them in Mac stores! 
It is the lipstick I am holding in the thumbnail. It is a bright peach color perfect for summer and spring and it gives you an instant tan! I'm not kidding!!

The other day I went to see the new Icons collection at h&m and was seriously searching for that beige little bag that also comes in black I think but I couldn't find it anywhere... I'm starting to think they used it as bait just to attract customers like me that end up buying other stuff in the end. 
I bought these leggings/panties with random letters on it when I was in store. I really like them (watch out they run big) but today when I wore them, they already broke :s no great quality there I'm afraid :(

Being ill means...

posting 2 times a day :D 

Two of my favorite nail looks :)




I really like "nudish" nailpolishes for an every day look. However, I feel like the second photo is a nice pick because even though nude nails can look a bit boring after a while, mixing and matching can change it up a little bit!

Face of the day

Hey there! ♡
Bad news... I got super ill yesterday and ever since then, I am just in my bed sleeping or watching movies :s And when it is nigh time, my body decided to not sleep anymore, so frustrating!
I know I promised a spring look post but it will be published once I am better. 
In the meantime, I thought I'd do a FOTD. :)

Easy everyday makeup! :)


Hi there! 
I got another video waiting for you :) 
Sorry that I have two posts after each other on my videos, I have been a bit busy with them and my camera died so I could not make a new documentary for a following blog post, but I am thinking of doing something with clothes or accessories.. :) 
I hope you like it!

Zara Haul!

I think every girl likes to go on a shopping spree and buy all the pretty things you see without worrying about the money you spend. 
I have been in such a mood when the sale period started! There was only one shop that I really wanted to go to and that was a reason for me to get up extremely early :) and that was Zara. 
I think their collection over the last months has been extremely pretty and flattering and so all the things I thought were still a little bit too expensive or not really necessary to become part of my closet now suddenly became affordable :) yay!

Some of my favorite hair products....




Tresemme, Neutrogena, Label.m, ... You name it, I review it :) 
One of my favorite things to try and find is amazing hair products. And this isn't an easy task.. Sometimes someone can rave about a certain product, that it is amazing, that it does everything it says it does, that it makes your hair look shiny and super healthy.. and when I try it out.. it doesn't work at all for me. I'm not sure whether that's just the fault of my own hair :D or whether the product is just not that good.. Having said that, I hope to be critical and really tell you honestly what those products do and whether they are worth their price tag. 
Let's start :)
