Beauty. Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette (Urban Decay)

Actually, my first ever eyeshadow palette was the Naked #1. I still own it, still like it, but my taste just shifted to warmer toned eyeshadows (probably due to the excessive beauty tutorials I watch on Youtube every day. It’s pretty brainwashing, really…). When I bumped into this, much reviewed, palette in Matosinhos’ Sephora; I bit the bullet and got it.

I am so happy with this palletE. I apply one single colour all over my eyelids, but go for a different colour every day (I find doing things in order very satisfying).
My favourites are the more red-toned colours: He Devil, Dirty Talk and Scorched. -See me wearing Dirty Talk here-

Fashion. Denim Midi Skirt (Samsoe Samsoe)

I got this skirt at De Bijenkorf in Amsterdam. We weren’t planning on shopping on our trip, but when we passed the store and realised the sales were on, we changed our goals and spent at least an hour wandering through all the brands I normally cannot really justify shopping from. I haven’t bought anything from Samsoe Samsoe before, but when I saw this skirt, I was immediately sold. I don’t know for how long I’ll be a fan of this style, but since it was half price I couldn’t really go wrong. It’s also a great piece for transitioning into autumn. -See me wearing the skirt here-

Books. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck (Mark Manson)

I’ve been having a really hard time the last couple months concerning: body image, school, and just generally finding your purpose on this earth. I was just like ‘what the fuck am I doing?’, ‘what are my goals?’, ‘Why am I studying for a job I don’t want?’, ‘What do I want to do for a living in the future?’. I started overthinking and worrying too much. And so after a long rant about my sad life to Julia (one of my best friends), she recommended me this book. I really enjoyed reading it. It’s basically a book full of life lessons and you choose what you take with you after finishing the book. You don’t have to agree with everything he writes (I know I didn’t). What really helped me was the part where he talked about finding the things that are important to you and putting your focus on those 3 things rather than trying to do too many (unimportant) things at the same time. I actually sat down and made a list of my goals and even a list of people I love and want to spend more time with instead of wasting time on things you don’t give a fuck about. I’m planning to write a post about focus, organisation and all that jazz really soon. So stay tuned!

Netflix. Glow

I don’t think I have to tell you how great the feeling is when you find a tv-series you really like. And the feeling is even better when you’re watching it together with your partner; talking about it over breakfast and predicting what’s going to happen is so great. Glow (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) tells the story about a woman who got casted for a tv-show. This tv-show she got casted for is quite shitty, but because it’s her first and only acting job she does everything it takes to keep it up. This is a pretty boring summary, but I cannot really tell you the exciting bits without spoiling, so go ahead and watch. And no, it’s not too girly. My boyfriend probably enjoyed it more than me.

Music. Analogue (ODIE)

Can we all agree on the fact that there is nothing interesting about watching 20 shots of a concert on Instagram Stories? The fact that I actually turned up the sound and re-watched my sister’s 20 shots of Odie’s concert in Amsterdam on her story shows how good his music is. I added his album to my ITunes and listened to it almost every day for the past month. Odie’s music is very uplifting and generally just beautiful. I love it!

What did you absolutely LOVE this month?
