Ugly Christmas Sweater Party 2015 ❤

Every Christmas season I dream of having an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party sleepover or something, but it just never happens. I just think it's the perfect way to get all of your friends together and get into the Christmas spirit, while looking hideously cute! Even though this sweater party is most likely not going to happen for me this year either, I'm pretty sure I'll still rock a festive outfit on Christmas morning. So I'd thought I'd show you some 'ugly' picks for your very own festivities this month.

The Perfect Christmas Gifts for Bloggers ❤

First off, I cannot wrap my head around the fact that it's officially December. This year went by crazy fast! But now back to the actual post. I love identifying myself as a blogger and I'd like to think that as such, I'm part of a special community. That's why I came up with the idea to create a gift guide blog post especially for bloggers!

It's no secret that the difference between maintaining a good and a crappy blog is mostly the content! A great way for me to stay on track is by writing down all of my ideas and scheduling my posts over a period of time. That way I can work ahead and stay organized. And having a planner makes it that much easier. The Bloggers Planner offers a variety of customizable planners and I'm completely obsessed! All of their planners have different purposes that just make planning out your projects and upcoming posts so much more fun! Especially because you get to decide your own title cover! I'm definitely considering ordering my very own "Confessions of this Shopaholic" planner!

Christmas Gifts Ideas for under €10 ❤

With so much going on before the holidays and end of the year, things can get a little stressful as far as getting all of your shopping done. Now I know this time shouldn't be all about gifts, but let's face it.. it's a big part of the celebration. And depending on the size of your social circle, shopping can get pretty pricey. So in the course of these upcoming weeks, I'll share my favorite gift ideas all for under a specific price point to help you out!

First things first.. Gifts under just €10!

Buying makeup as gifts for others can be tricky, so I opted for beauty products that are a little more generic for every female.

New In: HEMA Marquee Letter Lights ❤

Just a couple of days after I raved about the marquee lights from HEMA, I discovered that they were on sale for a little while on the website! I couldn't pass it up so before I knew it, I was checking out my initials. Today I got to pick up my packages at HEMA and bring these babies home.

I am obsessed! And I love the fact that the lights don't have any cords and are therefore battery operated. It just makes them much more portable and look a lot cuter as a decor piece. For more available marquee lights, check out HEMA

Fall 2015 Fashion: Grey is the New Black ❤

Grey is such a versatile color when it comes to fashion. I was really into it this past summer, but I love it even more this time of year. It's simplistic, oozes sophistication and is basically the new black in my eyes. I've gathered a few grey items, that I would love to add to my fall wardrobe. I'm especially loving how there are tons of shades to choose from.
Grey Fashion Trend Fall/Winter 2015
The first top items include some everyday platform boots, a cozy "Not your Bae" sweater, a very pretty metallic top and a grid check duster. This duster coat is perfect for days you feel like layering. The four bottom items are a nice bouclé oversized coat, a casual rib knit pencil skirt and a fancier metallic pencil skirt, as well as some really fashionable ankle pointed stiletto boot
Grey Fashion Trend Fall/Winter 2015
I like the look of this bouclé cardigan and the knit roll neck crop jumper seems like it can keep you really warm, despite it being cropped. And nothing screams fall more than a wool hat, am I right? I also really like this faux fur satchel and plunge ruched knitted dress. As well as the light grey nail polish & dark grey nail polish from H&M. 

How do you feel about wearing grey in the fall of winter season? Which of these items would you like to add to your wardrobe as well?

Trendy Interior Tip: Marquee Lights from ❤

Lately most of my pins have been interior related. I just love learning about the new trends in home decor land and finding inspiration for my own (future) apartment. One trend that I've come across a lot lately are the letter lights, or as I've seen them being called: Marquee Lights. They're the perfect decor piece for in your office space or bedroom. According to Pinterest, marquee lights are a fitting DIY project. But in case you're not really the crafty type, you can probably also get them in stores near you.

You're especially in luck if you're a Dutchie, because I found these trendy lights on the website of HEMA yesterday. Maybe I'm super late and this is old news. But I just had to share it with all of you. I couldn't find majority of the letters in the alphabet, so I'm not sure if they sold out, or if HEMA never had them. But I'd still check out the selection, these lights also make a great gift for a special someone. Find all the available HEMA letter lights [here].

The Six Instagram Accounts You Need to Follow Now ❤

I'm not going to lie, I refresh Instagram an embarrassing amount of times per day. It's so addicting, sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it. There's just so much to see and so much to be inspired by, if you're following the right accounts. Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite Instagram accounts with you! Maybe, you'll find some you can add to your daily feed :)

Instagram: @PinkLounge
So I'm going to be total biased for the first account if I may, because it is my own! Almost three months ago, I started a pink-only account and I've been loving it! Obviously pink is my favorite color and I just feel so happy inside scrolling down my feed of other's people pictures. Hopefully my feed does the same for you as well. So if you want your pink picture to be featured, use #pinklounge.
Favorite Instagram Account PinkLounge

Instagram: @GraceJayde
This has got to be one of my favorite Instagram accounts of all times, even though I just discovered it. Her pictures are so incredibly pretty, I just can't.. If you're not following this account, you definitely should!

Dream Interior: Decorative Ladder ❤

Life after college can be stressful. But one thing that I'm really looking forward to is finding my dream apartment. Or at least, decorating it like a dream! I'm not quite sure yet how I want it to look, but luckily I do know what I like. But that's also a part of the problem: I like way too much. I really like the idea of an industrial interior, but I'm also into the "Parisian" style design. Also, I like decorative pieces that are somewhat more unique and particular. So, it's definitely going to be a challenge to bring it all together nicely. 

Per usual, Pinterest has been a great way for me to get inspired and discover new interior design ideas I might want to consider. In these new interior series on the blog, I'll share them with you in hopes to pass on the inspiration. Today, I'm showing you how simple wooden ladders can spice up any space in your home. Definitely will be looking for one later myself!

Missguided Sale Wishlist for Fall 2015 ❤

Hello lovelies,

Due to lack of sleep last night, I decided to browse around in the Sale section of Missguided. You know, just for fun. Big mistake, because I had to refrain myself from placing an order. Especially because I didn't need to buy anymore summer clothing for now. But in the midst of all the short summer dresses and crop tops, I've also stumbled upon some items that can easily be transitioned into appropriate outfit pieces for the the colder season. Here's my wishlist.. 
Missguided Up to 70% Sale Wishlist Fall 2015
I have been so obsessed with the rose and mauve pink color lately. But let's be honest, when have I not loved pink? Perhaps it might not be a typical fall color to others, but fashion rules are meant to be broken.
Missguided Up to 70% Sale Wishlist Fall 2015
Wide leg trousers are so easy to wear in the fall season: just throw on some heeled boots and a floppy hat, and you've got yourself an effortless fall outfit.

Missguided Up to 70% Sale Wishlist Fall 2015
When it's cold outside, comfort is key. But I figured these heeled sandals can be rocked for somewhat fancier occasions, preferably held inside. However, I don't think this faux fur leopard coat needs any justification. 

What's your favorite transitioning piece for fall?

While in Paris during Paris Fashion Week ❤

Hello lovelies,

It's been a couple of days since all the Paris Fashion Week activities have ended, and I can't believe I was a part of it! Well...kinda. While I was in Paris, casually walking towards the Champs-Elysées, I was caught in the midst of arriving invitees for the Mugler Spring 2016 fashion show. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of Olivia Palermo, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid or even the Olsen twins, but I did spot a few other fashionistas. But it was no less exciting.
