Editor's Look: Croco Casual

Editor's Look: Croco Casual

Editor's Look: Croco Casual



Oh hello! Welcome back to a new Editor's Look! This must be the most comfortable summer proof look I ever put together. Here in Holland it can be super hot one moment and chilly the next, so this casual look was perfect for the weather today. I threw on my favorite biker leggings, a plain crop top and a lace cardigan / blazer. I love this piece, it's so comfortable but it can be worn for a more chic outfit, too! It's great for these temperatures as it's black, but doesn't absorb the heat because of the airy, lacy texture. Gotta get myself more of these in different colors.

It wouldn't be my look if I didn't match this entire outfit with shoes and a bag in the same color scheme, so these comfy sneakers and my croco bag could't be left out. Throw om some mirror sunnies  (gosh I love these, when I don't feel like wearing makeup, no one can tell lol) and we've got ourselves a look!

Hope you like it. Have a fabulous weekend everybody! 😊

Sunglasses From Glassesshop.com + 50% Discount Code!



Hi everyone! It's been quite a while since I last posted here on BLES Magazine. If you follow me om Instagram, you've probably seen some photos of me on top of a vulcano, at the beach and near some amazing historical buildings... in Sicily! I've been on holiday for 2 weeks and ever since I got back I've been extremely busy at work, so that explains me being MIA on here. But hey, I'm back! With some amazing sunnies and a discount code to share with you!

Glasseshop.com was so kind to have me pick out some new glasses online. I decided to go for some new sunnies for the summer. And they also thought of you, as they gave me a 50% discount code to share with my readers. You'll find it below this review. I picked out the Herbert Rectangle and the Edith Round sunglasses, as I didn't own a pair similar to these yet. I'm quite a fan of sunglasses, so these are a great addition to my collection. What I love most about these glasses?

The actual glasses are crystal clear! You know those random sunglasses they sell at, let's say.. H&M? Or Forever21? Sure the frames are super stylish, but the glasses are often plastic, made out of lower quality and providing darker vision. These on the other hand, are high quality glasses that are actually  just as clear as my Ray-Bans or D&G sunnies. But the price is so much better. And to make it even more affordable, you should definitely use my discount code GSHOT50  which is 50% off for all eyeglasses and sunglasses, with the exception of sales frames.

The variety of glasses and sunglasses over at Glassesshop.com is major, they even offer prescription sunglasses, too! Make sure to check out the webshop and use my discount code for some cash off your order. You're welcomeπŸ˜‹

Simple Life Rules That Make Life Much Better

Simple Life Rules That Make Life Much Better

Simple Life Rules That Make Life Much Better

http://nl.freepik.com/vrije-photo/glas-met-bericht-met-verlichting-een-hart-en-een-sjaal-met-sneeuw_993842.htm


We only live once, and sometimes, we forget to make the best of it. Hectic schedules and busy social lifes often make us take things for granted, but life can be so much better and easier on you when you live ny these simple life 'rules'. Guaranteed you'll feel less stressed, more grateful and a lot more positivity comig your way. Let's take a look at these 5 simple life rules!

Do not worry
It's often easier said than done, but letting go of things makes you so much less worried and stress free. Sometimes it's best to let things be and trust in the fact that everything happens for a reason and things will fall into place. Whether it is about school, work or your relationship status. Often, when we let go of things and stop worrying, the unexpected happens and more good things come your way.

Don't get irritated so quickly
People nowadays are so uptight, it takes the slightest thing to get someone annoyed and worked up. Don't allow that to happen to you. You can get irritated over the smallest things, but when you see it in perspective and you realize that there are way more serious problems in the world,  will you still let something or someone get to you? Probably not!

Expect less
When you have less expectations (of others) you won't get let down as easily. Realizing that nobody is the same, there's a big chance people do things with the best intentions but they might do it in a different way than you would. And there's nothing wrong with that. When you don't expect people to think or act the same as you, you won't get dissapointed that easily. 

Give more
Giving more is such an easy thing to do to make every day a good one. You can always start with smiling to others, doing something good for someone else, helping others out more. When you give more, you will receive more. When you give others positivity and good vibes, that's what you'll receive more of too. It can be in the smallest things to make the most out of your day :)

Baby Pink Instagram Inspiration

Baby Pink Instagram Inspiration

Baby Pink Instagram Inspiration





Surely mauve is the new trend color, but isn't baby pink just like a lighter version of mauve? I've been wearing a lot of rosegold en baby pink lately, simply because it always matches my nude/pink nails and accessoiries! I have a few new items to show you, so I decided to make this an Instagram inspiration post. Never done one of those here on BLES Magazine, so there's a first time for everything!


In this first photo above I am wearing a Vero Moda jacket that I have not worn in too long, simply because I forgot I had it.. that's one of the down sides of having a big closet, oops! I combined it with a sparkly tee, shiny pink nails and my Melano rings. The rest of this look was soft pink and grey.



Here we have one of my favorite pairs of sneakers at the moment; pink runners from Elise Store! I wore these with a baby pink tee, black leggings, a denim jacket (also from Elise Store) and my rosegolden Michael Kors watch. This is my favorite go-to look, just sneakers, leggings and an oversized jacket.



But sometimes, when I'm feeling a little more fancy, I'll go for high heels and a fancy bag with a hint of pink. The blouse and and bag were the exact same color, which I always find so pleasing! I love matchy-matchy items.



How adorable is this pink ruffled blouse from Elise Store? I'm afraid it is sold out but the white version is still available. I wore this with the same pink runners and of course a nude lip and nude nails.



Here's a better look of the nude pink nails. My favorite color! It's actually a mix of a few nailpolishes, as I often find nude colors too warm or too beige for my skintone. The bracelets are from Primark!



Another new item from Primark is this satin pink hat! I've been wearing it a lot lately, as it is the perfect way to conceal a bad hairday. The jewerly must look familar by now, as it's what I've been wearing most lately!



When the weather was still a little blaaahh last week, I wore this pink and black look. Again, sneakers from Elise Store. The bag is a Michael Kors Tricolor bag, which matched perfectly with my baby pink fluffy sweater and pink nails.



Last but not least. this look I wore this week when I went out for lunch and some shopping. I wore new velvet pink sneakers and the satin Primark cap, while I kept the rest of my outfit plain black.

Who else is loving pink tones as much as I am lately? Let me know in the comments πŸ’—

5 Things You Didn't Know You Can Use Coconut Oil For

5 Things You Didn't Know You Can Use Coconut Oil For

5 Things You Didn't Know You Can Use Coconut Oil For




It probably won't come as a surprise to hear that coconut oil is beneficial for many health purposes. We all can use coconut oil as a replacement for butter or olive oil to prepare dinner, right? And of course it's also no secret how it's a good, natural product to take off your makeup. But did you know there are many more ways to use coconot oil, for you....and your pets?


Apply after shaving for smooth skin
Our skin can become irritated for a number of different reasons, but red bumps or itchy skin after shaving is probably the most common. Instead of applying lotions, which often contain parabens, perfumes and sometimes even chemicals that will only irritate the skin more. Coconut oil is 100% natural and because it doesn't contain any added ingredients, it will not irritate your skin. It actually helps soothe the skin as coconut oil is quickly absorbed and doesn't stick or leave you with greasy skin. Super easy and quick, as you won't have to wait long to get dressed after applying coconut oil!

Use as a hairmask
I've written about the benefits of coconut oil for your hair before. There's only one type of oil that will truly repair damaged hair. You guessed it, coconut oil! It's got everything to do with the way the oil actually penetrates into the hair shaft, instead of just laying a shiny coat of oil on top of it. Coconut oil, unlike populair Marrocan oils or argan oils, really gets absorbed by the hair. Read more about using coconut oil as a hairmask here.

Use as your daily moisturizer
You can use coconut oil on a cotton pad to take of your makeup, but afterwards, you can also use a tiny amount of oil to massage into your skin. Especially in the morning! Coconut oil is a great alternative for your daily moisturizer, as coconut oil melts on the skin as soon as you apply it, without leaving any kind of residues. It easily seeps into the skin pores, moisturizing deeply and thoroughly.

Pet Health
Did you know coconut oil is great for your pet's health? I apply a bit of coconut oil onto my dogs fur before brusing them. They're so shiny amd the hairs of my little dog (check out that cute furry hairball here) don't tangle as quickly. Also, I give both my dogs a spoon of coconut oil mixed into their food every day. They love it! It improves the health of dogs' skin and coat. Coconut oil can also help their digestion, joint health and improve their breath. Last but not least, it's a great natural way to soothe their (sometimes) dry noses!

Sunburns and rashes
When you've got a rash or a sunburn, your skin is very irritated. The last thing you want to do is apply a product that will irritate it even more! That's why all natural products are best. Since coconut oil promotes collagen production, it can help repair skin cells, meaning that irritated skin, small cuts and rashes will heal faster. The antibacterial properties make coconut oil ideal for preventing infection in small cuts and irritated areas. Use it on your skin to help sooth sunburn and prevent peeling.

Luxury For Princess - Before And After!

Luxury For Princess - Before And After!

Luxury For Princess - Before And After!



Drastic before-after pictures are my fave, especially when it comes to hair extensions. I've been loving Luxury For Princess hair extensions for years now and whenever I feel like changing up my 'do I easily clip in my hair extensions. This set I'm going to show you below is the 260 grams set in Golden Brown, 22 inches long. Every time I open a new package I'm amazed at how long, shiny and thick the hair is from root to tips. Keep on reading to get to know more!

This set is my favorite, as it is not the longest and thickest set they have (they go up to 320 grams!) so it matches my thin hair best. The color is a pretty good match too. My hair is a little darker in some places because I have multiple high and lowlights. The hair extensions are made of various different shades so they blend in so easily. They do have a very golden, warm glow to them. I really love that, but my own hair is a little less golden. Even with my short bob they blend in nicely and I personally think they look very natural.

I can't wait to curl these long locks for a great party look. That's the best part of these Remy human hair extensions, you can wash, curl, dye the hair like you would with your own hair. And they clip in and out of your hair in just a minute. Check out the photo's below, and make sure to use discount code malu5 at checkout for a sweet discount on your own hair extensions ♥
