The Covet: Autumn / Winter 14 ZARA

Zara 2014

I've already written about my fashion preferences for the colder months in a blogpost about my H&M covets a couple of weeks ago (read here!). So today I'm just showing you my favourite autumn and winter items from Zara. At Zara I've found some mustard and cognac pieces to go with the darker colourshades from my H&M covets. And I don't know why, but somehow I'm really wanting this beautiful fedora. It wouldn't probably suit me though, but I like the thought of it. And although I'm not really in need of an autumnal jacket I really like this one. Want I'm really needing this year is a new winter coat, but that's a whole new chapter..

The Tag: The Goodreads Tag

Amy from a little boat sailing tagged her readers to do the 'Goodreads Tag' so as I'm a sucker for good books - especially during summer - I thought this would be a great idea to do!

The Current Favourite #4

All my current favourites have been on holiday with me and I've really enjoyed them. Besides one product I've had them for quite a long time now and they've almost become kind of holy grail products.

The Week's Nail: #8

I've been wearing this bright orange coral nailpolish for the last three weeks now and can't really be bothered to change it. The lasting power is amazing, it lasts 6 days without even chipping! And as it comes with a super thick brush it's easy to apply! One coat is enough so this nailpolish really is foolproof!
It's Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Forever Strong in '460 Couture Orange' and the Sally Hansen's Insta Dry Topcoat

The Empty Products #4: Makeup

I loved the bobbly brush from this P2 Lash Bomb Mascara (about 2€) , but the formula just left me with smudging all around my eyes after just a couple of weeks of using this.. Will be searching for another mascara with a similar brush! I just can't handle big massive mascara wands I think. So this Essence ILOVEEXTREME volume mascara (about 3€) just isn't something for me. Great texture, but just waaaay to extreme.The Clinique High Impact Mascara (19.95€): Love love love this! I've been raving about this mascara for ages now. Enough said! And last but not least the Yves Rocher Radiant Youth Corrector Pen Correction and Radiance (12.95€). You will probably know by now that I really like this concealer. I'm taking this on holiday with me and it just conceals my dark circles quite well and leaves me looking awake and bright!

The Covet: Autumn/Winter 14 H&M

autumn/winter 2014 h&m

During the colder month I always gravitate towards darker colours and shades. As the H&M catalogue came in the mail a couple of days ago I thought I'd share a small wishlist for this autumn and winter. I love autumnal colours like a mustardy yellow, rusty red and a beautiful dark green. I've been wearing these colours all winter long last year and am really looking forward to getting them out again. With my pale but still olive complexion, dark eyes and brown hair these colours really suit me. And I'm definitely getting a chelsea boot type boot this year. My friend Lisa always wears these during the colder months and they look amazing no matter what she styles them with. So this year I will finally get them as well. Although I'm thinking about getting ones with a heel. And I just love this faux leather shopper with the built in smaller pouch for extra security. Going to France in a couple of days, this bag reminds me of a chic french woman with a really layed back style. I'm all in for cozyness during the colder months and mixing patterns and textures. So a silky blouse with this slouchy knitted sweater would be perfect. And maybe (just maybe!) I've started liking the idea of a pair of jeans with a slits at the knees. They've been all over Topshop during the summer and I'm really starting to like the idea. We'll see if I could wear them during freezing temperatures though..

The Beauty: Washbag #CampingEdition

When I go on holiday I keep using a minimalized version of my daily skincare routine and just add some sun and holiday proof products. I decant all the big bottles and tubes into small travel sized ones, but for the sake of this picture I'm showing you the original packages.
