Book Review: I heart Hollywood


In this book (the second one in the 'I heart-series'), Angela is sent to Los Angeles to interview James Jacobs (a famous British actor). Her NYC-friend Jenny decides to go with her for the week. Once the girls are in LA, James seems to be very nice to Angela, despite his bad reputation. And when some paparazzi catches Angela and James together, rumours start that the two are dating. Angela has to convince her boss Mary and her boyfriend Alex that the rumours are not true. But then Angela catches James and his assistant Blake kissing in the bathroom of a club and she does not know what to do, since her boss liked the idea that James and Angela are dating. Eventually Angela convinces James to do an interview about him being gay and that interview becomes a success. But what happens with her relationship with Alex and her friendship with Jenny?

Red Carpet: Golden Globes 2013

The Golden Globe Awards took place on sunday, the 13th of January. And ofcoure, i had to watch the red carpet show to see all the dresses. I noticed that there were a few 'trends' on the red carpet: red dresses, black dresses, white dresses and nude dresses. Here are my thoughts on all of those dresses.

Photo's





















Trend 1 red dresses: Jessica Alba wore a coral dress by Oscar de la Renta: i like the color on her and also the statement-necklace. Jennifer Lawrence wore a dark coral dress by Dior. I thought she looked amazing: maybe the best of her ever. Marion Cotillard wore a orange/red-ish dress by Dior. I liked it, but i wish she had done something cute with her hair as well. Claire Danes looked amazing, only one month after giving birth(!), in a dress by Versace. The color looked great on her. Zooey Deschanel wore a Oscar de la Renta-dress. I liked the dress, but i did not like the necklace. Jennifer Garner looked amazing in a dress by Vivienne Westwood Couture: i love the dress, the hair and the earrings. I think this is Jennifer's best look ever! Naomi Watts looked stunning in a Zac Posen-dress. The burgundy color looked nice on her fair skin.

Casual: Lauren Conrad

Who doesn't love Lauren Conrad her outfits? She has a great style: very classic and smart. Since spring is almost (ahum..not really) coming, i thought it might be nice to see how we can pair our 'white shirts'. I like wearing them, but never know how to 'not look too chic'. This outfit is a perfect example of a casual outfit with a white shirt.

I like how Dianna combines a very feminine dress with a military/army-styled jacket and some rocker-boots.

Book Review: I heart New York


When Angela finds out that her boyfriend Mark is cheating on her, and her best friend Louisa knew about it and did not tell her, Angela flees to New York. She becomes friends with Jenny, a concierge at the hotel Angela is staying in. Jenny gives her a Hollywood makeover and takes her out to see New York. She even asks Angela to move in with her, which Angela gladly accepts. Within a few weeks Angela is dating two great guys at the same time: Tyler, a Wall Street-banker, who treats her like a princess (and takes her to Tiffany & Co!). And Alex, singer of a band, who she secretly likes a lot more. Also, Angela gets to blog about her life for a magazine. And because her blog is such a success, she gets a job offer that will take her back to London. But is Angela ready to go back to London again?

NOTD: Essie-Bahama Mama

I have always been into nailpolish, but i started using more brighter and darker colors last year: before that, i only wore pale pinks/nudes. So for my first 'Nails Of The Day' (NOTD)-post i chose Essie's Bahama Mama. It has been my go-to color for fall and winter ever since i got it for my birthday last october. Bahama Mama is an amazing purple/wine red-ish color, very opaque and it has no glitter. The photo with flash shows the color as it is in 'real life'.

Book Review: The Single Girl's To-Do List


Today i finished reading this book by Lindsey Kelk. In this book Rachel, a twenty-something year old make-up artist, has everything she has always wanted: a job, a house and a boyfriend. At one point Simon, her boyfriend, decides to break up with her. Because of that, Rachel's friends Emilie and Matthew come up with a plan: the single girl's to-do list. The story follows Rachel's journey while completing the things on the list (like getting a make-over, get a tattoo and travel abroad). And as you would expect, this journey is not easy.
