New Beginnings!



Wow. I haven't written a blog post in so long, it almost feels exotic to be doing it now.
But this time, I didn't take a break from blogging for no good reason - like I usually do when my only excuse is that I simply lacked the motivation to write a post - no, this time it was because I moved to an entire new country - the Netherlands! The reason? I'm going to be studying at the UvA (University of Amsterdam) starting from next week! And I honestly can't tell you how excited I am to finally be going back to something like a daily routine by doing so. The gap year I took was an amazing experience, but I am almost certain this is going to be one, too!

But this post is not intended to be a story of what's going on in my personal life or of finding yourself,  "lifestyle" would be a better category because, as a proud owner of my very own, cute little place in one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in the world (duh!), I almost feel obliged to show you what my studio apartment turned out to look like, now that it's all furnished and personalised!





A good 80% of what you're looking at is from IKEA, living very near one, it just came in handy to buy the furniture from them plus I love the DIY character of the Swedish furniture chain.
So that's what I've literally been spending days doing, just getting all the stuff from IKEA and then bringing it home to build it - so much fun but also incredibly tiring!

The most important part is THE BED of course! My holy grail ~~



And looking at these pictures would you believe that it's the inside of a container?
Because it is! Because of the shortage of housing in Amsterdam, the city has come up with this innovative idea to create affordable housing space, especially for students.
I'm actually living on a campus with over 600 students all owning their own container-studio!
I was so amazed with how well isolated the container is, once you close the window you literally hear nothing of what's going on outside, I also love how light and friendly it is, mainly thanks to the big window, the parqueted floor and the white walls. And personally, I think I've made myself a cozy and cute little home :3


What do you think of my apartment in Amsterdam and what do you think of the container idea?

Coordinates: Strawberry Lipsticks featuring Sammydress

Top : Sammydress | Tulle dress : Zara | Hotpants : H&M | Flats : Salvatore Ferragamo | Clutch bag : Sammydress 
I'm so happy to finally post my most recent coordinate because it's been a while & I really like this coordinate. It also features my two favourite Sammydress products. 
If you've been following my blog for a little longer you might know I'm really into unique looking accessories, especially bags - so I got very excited when I discovered this cute clutch bag in lipstick design on the Sammydress website - I just had to get it! And I SOOOO don't regret it because it is even prettier in real life! In fact, this is probably my favourite clutch bag now and it is certainly an eye-catcher as well :) The only con is that it's a little heavy but that doesn't bother me too much, it's just so cute. Another item in this coordinate I wanna mention are the ballet flats from Salvatore Ferragamo, probably my favourite flats so far - they are very subtle & classy in terms of design so you can easily wear them with a lot of different outfits, they are also really really comfy! 
And lastly the top with the special cut is another Sammydress item I really grew to love, mainly because of the interesting irregular & oversized design and since it's black, it's also very easy to match it with many different looks, I love it! 




Sometimes I check the Sammydress website and honestly don't find a lot of pretty things but this time I was really lucky, in fact there were so many cute items, so especially if you're still looking for a unique or cute bag, make sure you check out their online shop!

Also, if you have one, where did you find your favourite clutch bag?

K'ryssma lace front wig



I wanna talk about this lace wig I ordered from K'ryssma (via Amazon) lately though. 
Since I had never really tried lace wigs before I was a bit uncertain whether or not to order one but after having seen it look absolutely stunning & very natural on a fellow fashion blogger I just had to try it out. 

Placing the order 
Typical amazon order process. The delivery only took a couple of days, 3 if I remember correctly which had me very positively surprised considering that it wasn't even a prime order. 

The product
After having watched a couple of youtube tutorials on how to properly wear lace wigs, I felt comfortable that I could do it so I tried it on. I used some concealer on the parting to get as close to my skin color as possible and I think I did a fairly good job. I love about this wig that it has this blend-in effect from the dark roots to the silver/grey hair. As a natural ginger I was a little skeptical on whether or not I would be able to pull it off well so I'm extremely happy it turned out so natural looking! The hair also seems to be a decent quality & is quite heavy, this might be a con or pro depending on your personal preferences, but for me it was certainly a pro because it feels basically like human hair.

Comfort
I really like that the wig fits so well & tightly, it didn't even slightly shift over the 2 hours that I wore it which was another positive surprise for me as I also made some different experiences with other 'regular' wigs, despite the adjustment straps.

Overall  
I love this wig, the only thing that might not be overly ideal is that I've found that, despite the hair of the wig being pretty straight, it tangles up easily, but then again this is very typical with all long hair wigs. Overall, however, the value for money ratio is really great, especially if you, like me, haven't tried any lace front wigs before and hence don't wanna spend a fortune on it right away. If you like experimenting & wearing wigs I definitely recommend Kryssma's lace wigs! 


Have you tried wearing front lace wigs before?
