W.I.C. Mystic Japan

WIC-MYSTIC-JAPANI always really like the World Inspired Colours by Herome. I already got some nail polish from the Curacao and the Holland collection. Herome gave me the opportunity to try one of the colors of the new WIC collection: Mystic Japan. Like a lot of other nail polish brands Herome gives every nailpolish a name. From left to right, they are called: Shizuoka, Nagoya, Yokohama, Nemuro, Kyoto and Sappora. Continue reading

I always love reading personal blogposts from different bloggers, so I decided to write one myself. I found a great tag the ’15 random questions’ tag!  Hope you like it! Feel free to copy it!

1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
As you’ll probably know is Menina my nickname. But there are more! My dad calls me ‘meikie’. Most of my friends call me Maaik. My beloved grandmother used to have some kind of nickname for me too, but I forgot…Unfortunately I can’t ask it anymore.

2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
Not very weird: but I leave my shoes all over the place. They are everywhere. It drives my boyfriend crazy sometimes… I do have a weird habit though, everytime I leave a place (work, home, bar, anywhere) I always need to check my purse: keys, phone, wallet, lipgloss? Everytime! Even when I’m sure my stuff is really in my purse.

How to survive a no buy #4: identify your dangerzone

Danger ZoneI was on my way to a lunch with my friend and suddenly I froze. I just couldn’t breath anymore. My legs got heavy and I wasn’t able to move anymore. The only thing I could do was stare at the window…

Welcome to the world of a shoe addict on a Shoe No Buy.
I get distracted everywhere. Utrecht counts 71 shoe stores. Most of them located in the city centre. So you can imagine how hard it is for a girl like me to walk though the city. It sometimes feels like being in Carrie Bradshaw’s closet without the permission to touch anything. Horror!
