This town, this town



Never really knew what to do with this sheer Koh nailpolish. Even with 4 layers it was very sheer and not pretty at all. But a few days ago I decided to try it with a black layer underneath. And now it's really pretty!

This is Koh - Down under! nr 183

I don't wanna play for keeps anymore.






Today's outfit!
I love to combine this cute ballerina dress with tough items like a leather jacket and workerboots :)

I'm caught up.



This photograph is called 'Caught up'.
I shot the pictures for this a long time ago, but half an hour ago I just felt like doing something with them. So I put them all together and now they are this quite interesting photograph/collage thing. I wanted to create something you can look at for a while and discover new parts of the picture every time you take a closer look :)

Cross over and come inside



Hey guys!
A quick update with some pics from a bowling night last saturday. It was nice to do something totally different from studying haha!

Dream away.



Besides fashion, art and beauty I also love music! I've played the piano for almost 7 years now and my favourite composers are Satie and Chopin :)
This is a beautiful piece by Erik Satie, played live by me. It's called Gnossienne no. 3, enjoy!

My current Topshop wishlist. The shorts + scallop top + earrings + sandals would look amazinggg together.

leave the world behind.



Posh Spice - Fancy Fuchsia - Cocktail Passion - Ruby me - Peppermint - Aqua blue - Clearly clear


My mom and I have seven Rimmel nailpolishes together, so I thought it would be nice to do a blogpost with swatches and a review!

First off; I absolutely love the colours Rimmel make. They're simpel, most of them are just creamy without any shimmer of glitters. Just how I like it!
These Lycra Pro polishes have a maxi brush, which makes applying super easy. The formula is not too thick and not too thin, just perfect.
These beauties cost €6,99 which is not extremely cheap but not really expensive either. I got many of these polishes during sale (when they were €4,99 or even €2,50) so I'm really happy with these haha.
The topcoat (Clearly clear) is also really nice and smooth.

Although the nailpolishes promise to remain on your nails for 10 days.. they don't. For me this isn't really a problem though, because I like to wear another colour every day ^^

So, I really recommend these Rimmel Lycra Pro nailpolishes! They're gorgeous; just take a look at the swatches beneath!
Two coats is perfectly fine (except for Peppermint, that one really needs 3 coats, as you can see)

So crazy right now.



Blogger is finally back up! Although it seems my last post is gone..
Anyway, this is what I'm doing these days. Studying and swirling in my chair.

one, two, three.



1. GIVE-AWAY
It was a really difficult (that's why it took me so long haha, I'm sorry) but the winner of my give-away is... Mayke! You said very helpful things and I thought you and me are are on the same level when it comes to my blog (except for the music updates, which you don't like haha). Anyway, thanks a lot and you can email your adress to lamoderetro@live.nl. The package will be coming your way as soon as possible!

But actually, it didn't felt good to choose only one person. There was another person who did her best to write an honest, good review about my blog and I thought she deserved something too. And that's you, Suzanne! I really appreciate the fact you gave your honest opinion about my blog and you also said some helpful things! You also mentioned you love nailpolish, so I put together a little package with some nailpolishes for you! You can also email me at lamoderetro@live.nl :)

2. A LITTLE BREAK
I'm reaaaally busy with school. I have my final exams in a week and school is a priority right now. So there will probably be less updates, I hope you don't mind and I'm sorry!

3. TWITTER
I made a twitter-account a long time ago, but I was never really active on Twitter. But now, between the studying, I'm addicted to Twitter haha! It would be cool if you would follow me :)
You can find my twitter here!

You give me love, baby



This gorgeous colour has been in my stash for a few weeks now so I decided to give it a try. And wow, I love it! This fantastic coral/pink colour is my new favourite for summer. Can you imagine how good it will look on tanned skin?
And yeah, I've been wearing a lot of Rimmel nailpolishes lately haha. I can't help it, their colours are just too pretty! Everytime I walk by the Rimmel counter @ a drugstore I just want to buy more and more.

The first three are self-portraits, the last one's my sister.
