taking a break

Hey there!

You might've noticed, but lately I've been feeling very uninspired to work on my blog. (And I also need / want to focus on my college applications, testweek and just high school in general) Therefore I'm taking a week of in hopes of returning with a bunch of new ideas and excitement.
Meanwhile you can send me some ideas for blogposts you'd like to see :).

xoxo, Sabrina

how i ordered glossier from the netherlands (no extra costs!)

~ Not sponsored ~

I'm gonna preface this by saying two things:
1) No this is not one of those crappy "get an address in the US!" things where you pay twice the shipping. It's way better!
2) I actually have a coupon code for all y'all which will be at the end of this post

So, Glossier. It's of those brands that seems to be virtually everywhere. Every cool girl on instagram or youtube uses their products, their pink bags are an internet celebrity by themselves and the whole brand uses the most genius marketing. Sad thing is, they don't ship to the Netherlands. Therefore I set out to find a way to get their products to me and I actually succeeded! Today I'll be sharing my findings with y'all :).

my favorite youtubers that inspire me to create.

~ Not sponsored ~

I've said it once and I'll say it many times, I'm a diehard youtube fan. I don't know what it is about the platform, but something about watching random people's lives is so captivating to me. It follows the same idea that blogs do, we want insight into the "unknown" that consists out of other people's lives, but in a more visual way. Putting all that philosophy aside let's just dive into the list, shall we?

autumnal everyday makeup.

~ Not sponsored ~

Hey guys! So since I only do more ~dramatic~ makeup looks on my youtube and IG I usually get a lot of people asking me about what makeup I actually wear on a daily basis, and so I decided to write this post about it.
For me it's basically fall, so this is going to be my everyday makeup but sort of with an autumn theme to it.

why I'm removing my old Dutch blogposts.

~ Not sponsored ~

Hey guys! Today I'm doing a really quick post, that actually has an important lesson. You see, I've decided recently that I want to pull all my Dutch blog posts from my blog.

That has a few reasons, the main one being that most of you guys can't read those, since I've switched to an English audience.
It's also important to know that most of those posts don't represent the quality I want on this blog. They were my starting posts, from before I took my blog seriously. Therefore I've decided to unpublish them.

I hope you understand :).

(Also, I know this isn't really a full blogpost but I totally forgot to write one! Next week you'll get a good one though, to make up for it)

Meanwhile you can watch my latest youtube vid though ;)

the easiest way to digitalize all your polaroids

~ This post is not sponsored ~

Summer break is here again, which most likely means you're attending lots of social gatherings and taking tons of pictures. Most of those will be polaroids, if you're anything like me. Unfortunately it's hard to share polaroids with your friends or share them on social media, since every one is unique and taking a picture with your phone ruins the quality.

But I'm coming to the rescue!! In this post I'll be telling you all about how I digitalize my polaroids, quickly and easily.

the silent fashion statement we all make (a phone case review).

~ This phone case was sent to me for reviewing purposes, however all opinions stated are strictly my own ~

When you think about it, phone cases are actually a silent fashion statement, a quiet way of expressing yourself. We all need phone cases anyway, to protect our precious babies, so why not use that and give it a personal twist? Today I'm going to be reviewing a Dutch site (www.hoesjemaken.nl) that lets you print your photos and designs onto phone cases, so you can express yourself just how you want to.

We've all been there; the struggle of editing our photos to match our aesthetic or theme. It can be hard out there to get the specific look you want for your pic or find the perfect editing app you desire, but today I'm helping you out a bit by telling you all about my favourite photo (and video) editing apps. I'm personally really into 1) a black/white/gold/neutral aesthetic or 2) a vintage/polaroid/vhs type of aesthetic for my pictures, and these apps help me achieve that feel.

the spring beauty edit + sudden snowfall.

~ Not sponsored, but if you're interested hit me up ~

     

Spring has finally kinda come (if you ignore the recent snowfall, that is) and with it it brings soft, muted and simple makeup looks. Of course you can do a simple beauty look, whenever you feel like it, but what better time for that is is there than spring?

I promise I won't go all soft and squishy about spring being all about new things and the birth of fresh beginnings or whatever, but it is true, no matter how clichΓ© and overused it may sound. So what better time than now for a soft and simple beauty look, to celebrate new beginnings and all that jazz.

In this post I'm going to share a few of my favourite beauty products that I've been loving lately to get  that fresh, glowy and soft look.

The Dutch Blogger Girl is now in English!

If you're reading this, you've probably noticed the title of this post and the fact that this post is in English.

There's multiple reasons for my direct switch in language but the most important one is just because I want this blog to be in English, I've always wanted it that way. I want this blog to be successful, and whether I like it or not, if I want to optimize my chances of being successful with this blog I have to switch to English.

I don't want to wait any longer because the longer I wait the more posts I'll have to translate and that would just be a waste of my time. I've thought about having two blogs, but that would be impossible to keep up with. I've thought of translating all my old posts, but let's be honest, that would take hours upon hours of work.

Don't worry, all of my old posts will still be available in Dutch, although I'll try to translate some of the more recent ones (they'll be available in both Dutch and English written under each other).

Anyways, I guess that was it for this little announcement xx.
(If you're wondering, I'll still be called "The Dutch blogger girl", I can't change my country of birth after all xd)
