I got a CouponTigers gift box filled with beauty products

Looking at my CouponTigers gift box

Browsing online I noticed a great offer that I just had to take part in. I could get a CouponTigers gift box with several beauty products for free, by becoming a member of their club. I absolutely wanted the nice gift box from CouponTigers, so I was very tempted to say yes… And in the end, I did. I will tell you guys all about my experience and what I think about the CouponTigers gift box. In addition, I have made a mini-review of the products I got in the box. 

It started with a Facebook AD…

I noticed the CouponTigers gift box while I was looking through my Facebook feed. It was the Max Factor gift box that dragged me in and made me tempted. The products from Max Factor are just great in general. The quality is very good, and I’ve always been happy with the products that I’ve tried before. Max Factor is a brand that I’ve known of since forever… The quality is common knowledge, and I’ve really noticed it myself. Because of that, I was tempted by the Max Factor gift box. I have previously purchased things via Facebook ads and I haven’t had any problems with it. So it felt good to get this welcome offer from CouponTigers, which they offer to all new members of their club. I read through what it meant to be a member and decided to go for it. 

Max Factor gift box

A lot of gift boxes to choose from

Before deciding on the Max Factor gift box, I wanted to take a look at my options. It turns out that if you’re eligible for a CouponTigers gift box you can choose from more than 50 different ones. That’s amazing! After looking at the different gift boxes I am sure that CouponTigers has a gift box for everyone. My top 3 gift boxes that they have is the Garnier gift box, the Sunny gift box, and the Max Factor gift box. In the end, what I ended up with was the Max Factor gift box. I really want to try all of the products in that gift box, and when I can get it for free, I’m not gonna say no to that. I will share all about my thoughts and opinions about the products in the gift box, and the concept of getting a free gift box in general.

My final choice, and getting it in the mail

Like I told you guys already, I ended up choosing the CouponTigers gift box with the Max Factor products. It was very easy, and thanks to the gift card code that I got from CouponTigers, I could get the gift box for free. The only thing I had to pay was the delivery costs. In my opinion, that’s a great offer, as I know the price of these products is much higher than the delivery that I had to pay. All in all, something I really feel like is worth it. It did not take long to get it home, and in less than a week I had my CouponTigers gift box filled with lovely products. I decided that it would be fun to do a mini-review so that I could tell all of you guys about it. So here you have it – my honest opinions and thoughts about the products that I got in the CouponTigers gift box

The items in my gift box

The Dark Magic Mascara from the CouponTigers gift box gave me lashes for days

I had never tried the Dark Magic Mascara from Max Factor, but I’ve tried other mascaras from the brand earlier. I knew that I’ve been happy with the result on my lashes in general after trying different ones, so I was eager to try this one. Well, as I already mentioned, I got lashes for days. It’s my new favorite mascara. It gave a great volume effect and the brush was very easy to work with. The result is pitch black, and stunning only after one application. There’s a big problem if the mascara smudge during the day, and luckily it was not the case with this one. I actually went to work out in the afternoon while wearing it, and still – no smudging. I have been using it for a week now and I am super happy. I’ve still not had a smudging incident! 

Lipfinity Lipstick for long-lasting color

When I saw that the Lipfinity Lipstick can last up to 24 hours I was intrigued. The question was… Does it last up to 24 hours if you don’t drink or eat anything at all? I had to test my theory. I drink at least one cup of coffee during the day, as well as a lot of water. Normally my lipstick will NOT last through my cup of coffee, so this was my test. And guess what? It was good even after my cup of coffee. I applied the moisturizing coat after just because I felt like it, but the color was still perfect. If you don’t already know, the Lipfinity Lipstick has two different parts to it. You apply the color first, with a lip gloss applicator. Very easy. After that, you put on the moisturizing coat to lock in the color. It works great!

The Miracle Glow Duo makes my skin pop

Trying out the Miracle Glow Duo from the CouponTigers gift box, I had no expectations what so ever. I have not tried a duo like that before, but it was super easy to use. I have rarely used a creamy highlighter, but I have to say that I like it. It was easy to blend it nicely into my foundation, and the result was really great. I found out that if I wanted an even stronger highlight effect I can just take a powdered highlighter on top to accentuate it even more. Perfect if I’m going to a party for example. The matte illuminator is really nice under the eyes and between the eyebrows. On the other hand, the one with shimmer is great on the cheekbones for example. Also, I love to put it on my collarbones as well, if I’m wearing an off-shoulder top. 

The blush in the CouponTigers gift box gave me the perfect touch of pink

I am always looking for the perfect blush. Mainly this is because I feel like if you wear a blush in pink you get a different look if you wear a peachy blush. Because of that, I love to try different ones and check out which ones can make me look the best in this or that outfit, etc. The blush I got in my CouponTigers gift box was in the color Berries. As you probably can imagine, it’s in a beautiful pink color. I’ve learned not to use too much blush, and it can give a really nice touch of color to your makeup look. The whole contouring of the face can make it a bit “pale” since you only try to hide and accentuate different parts, so the blush can give the face some life. I like it. 

My makeup table

Honey Laquer Lip Gloss is the gloss of my dreams with many great features

In my CouponTigers gift box, I got a Honey Laquer Lip Gloss. I must say that it’s one of the best glosses that I’ve ever used. It has the color of a lipstick, but the shine of a lip gloss. In addition to that, it leaves your lips as smooth as a lip balm, which is perfect for colder days. I really like the result it gives me. It’s the gloss that I’ll always have in my purse, as it can take my outfit from casual to glam after applying it. I love to have the option of just putting on some makeup and change up my look. In general, my outfits consist of basic colors, and thanks to that it’s perfect to add on some color on my lips. 

My final thoughts about the CouponTigers gift box

After receiving the CouponTigers gift box and testing all the products a few times, I must say that I am very happy with it. The products have high quality and I loved that I could choose not only this gift box but also different ones if I would have wanted that. The welcome offer is great, and the whole process was very easy. I knew after reading through the terms and conditions that by ordering this gift box I became a member of the CouponTigers club. I don’t mind, and I will try being a member for a period of time, and see how it is. They have stated that I can leave the club at any time, so I don’t feel any stress in regard to it. I will let you guys know later how it is being a member. But at least the CouponTigers gift box was great.

CouponSmash review – my experience

Online shopping

I have tested the services of CouponSmash and wanted to make my own CouponSmash review to share my experience with all of you. Shopping, fashion, and beauty are things that I love. Exactly because of that, this page was intriguing to me. I always try to share my experiences with others, and try to make sure to share all sides of the experience. So welcome to my CouponSmash review.

Discovering CouponSmash through a Facebook AD

The way that I discovered CouponSmash was through an ad on Facebook. I have had good experiences with companies I have found through Facebook ads before, so I was happy to take a look. They were offering a free gift box for all new members, and I was intrigued. I always make sure to read through the terms and conditions before I sign up for anything. We all know we don’t want to go in any trap. As a member of the club, you will get gift cards each month, which sounds very cool to me.

CouponSmash review after seeing AD on Facebook

Choosing my gift box

The next step except signing up was to choose my gift box. They had a big selection of gift boxes, so it was actually a bit hard to choose. The products that I’d get for free are actually really great… Because of that, I wanted to make sure I chose the best gift box possible. I ended up with the Maybelline gift box since that is a brand I’m thrilled with. I recognized some products that I’m already fond of, as well as a couple of new ones. That is a big plus when it comes to my CouponSmash review.

The Maybelline Gift Box

The favorites that I use on an everyday basis

Lash Sensational Mascara is one of my all-time favorite mascaras. The way my lashes turn out after using this is fantastic. They give volume without feeling heavy on the lashes, and without smudging. The worst thing I know is wearing mascara and after an hour or two, look like some kind of animal… That’s luckily not the case with this one. I’ve been using it for over a year now, so I’m not gonna say no to get it for free. In addition, the Master Holographic Highlighter is fantastic. Use a fan brush and the result is amazing. It’s also very beautiful to use it highlighting the collarbones if you wear an off-shoulder top. The result can either be SUPER glowy, or more natural. 

The eyeshadow palette that has it all takes my CouponSmash review to the next level

Maybelline has created the perfect palette with eyeshadows. The Blushed Nudes Palette is the one I need in my life. Seeing that CouponSmash has this palette, I was really impressed. It’s clear to me that CouponSmash has really reviewed the brands they work with, and chosen the best products. The combination of products in this gift box will take both my everyday makeup and my party looks to the next level. I am so happy that I chose it. I don’t know about you guys, but Maybelline is a brand that I feel like has been existing forever. The fact that CouponSmash has them as one of the brands they are working with is a plus for my review. With this eyeshadow palette, I can create perfect daytime looks. The other great thing is that it has darker colors that make it excellent for a party-look as well.

Smokey eyes

Perfect complexion combining two new products

When it comes to skin, I always love to have a perfect complexion. We all have days where that’s just not possible, but I try as much as I can. I’ve heard great things about the Dream Satin Liquid Foundation from Maybelline, so to see that CouponSmash has that in the gift box, is amazing. I love to apply foundation with a sponge, as that gives the best result in my opinion. One way to get a very natural glowy look is to apply a liquid highlighter that blends perfectly with the foundation. I have another sponge for that, and I make sure to not apply too much. The Master Strobing Liquid gives a very natural look. If I want to accentuate it more, I use the powdered highlighter on top of it. That’s a really great tip if you want that highlight to pop!

Getting an overview to make my CouponSmash review

I wanted to make a CouponSmash review that can give all of you a feel of the whole store. Because of that, I made sure to take a look at the whole store, to see what this was all about. As I mentioned earlier, you become a member of the club when you sign up for the welcome offer. Because of that, it was relevant to me to check out what I could get as a member.

Not every day you see an online store offer entertainment services

Something that made me very excited was that CouponSmash offers entertainment services, without you having to sign up for a subscription with the different entertainment channels. Realizing that I can get one month of free subscription to some of the most popular magazines that I really love, made me extremely happy. The whole concept of filling up on inspiration from different magazines is something I really enjoy. I often do this during vacation days, but I want to spend more time doing that during the rest of the year.

CouponSmash has a great selection of magazines

Music and podcasts to fill up my busy days

One thing that I loved to see was that some of the entertainment services that CouponSmash offers for you to try and review if it’s something you wish to continue with, opened my door to a lot of different music and podcast options. Castro Plus is a genius service that allows you to listen to several podcasts whenever you want. Lately, I have been hooked on podcasts, because you can listen to so many different themes. I love it! So I will absolutely try some of the music and podcast options that they have. Maybe I should have done that before making my CouponSmash review, but I was too eager to share it with you. I can give you guys a follow up when I’ve tested some of the entertainment services. I’ll share my favorites with you.

Checking out several categories before my CouponSmash review

This whole CouponSmash review started with me ordering the Maybelline gift box. As I earlier mentioned I saw in the terms and conditions that I became a member if I chose their welcome offer which was the free gift box. Since you can cancel at any time I felt like I might as well try out being a member. If it turns out that I don’t want to be it anymore, I’ll just cancel my membership, easy as pie. I took a look at their perfumes and fashion items, to complete my review.

My favorite parfume

My favorite perfumes at an extremely affordable price

Recognizing some of my favorite brands when I am thinking about perfumes, made me very happy. I loved to see that they have perfumes from Burberry, Chanel, Loewe, Marc Jacobs, and Prada. What surprised me was the prices. I know from previous experience that the prices of these brands can be something a tad unaffordable sometimes. But seeing that CouponSmash has my favorite scents at almost half price made me so so happy. 

The best fashion brands and the best quality

When I shop I try to make sure that I choose brands that are environmentally friendly and high quality. I’d rather purchase a fashion item that is a bit more expensive but knowing that the quality is great. When it comes to chill everyday wear I love Adidas. I love the sporty look that I can wear just to hang out, or if I actually will do sports, haha. Guess has a lot of beautiful pieces that I really want. I love that they have such timeless pieces! Not to mention Levi’s! Their jeans are to die for. All of you that have tried a pair of jeans from Levi’s will agree.

The last words of my CouponSmash review

I hope that all of you have enjoyed my review of CouponSmash. I tried to comment on different aspects of the online store, and I hope that my opinions can be of help. Since it is a new store I look forward to seeing it develop and also testing how it is benefiting from the membership with them. Like I mentioned earlier I would love to get back to you guys at a later point with a review on certain aspects of the online store, when I have tried it out a bit more. All in all I have been very happy with my experience so far, and I think the whole process was pretty easy. So that concludes my CouponSmash review, and I give it a 10/10 so far!

Michael Ginnerskov Jensen wishes to change the shopping experience and behavior online

Shopping

Shopping is something we all know and love. We have all browsed the internet for the next thing on our wishlist. The great thing about the big old internet is that it makes everything much more accessible than before when it was not possible to order online. When I noticed the way Michael Ginnerskov Jensen wants to change the shopping experience I was immediately intrigued. I had to look deeper into him and what he will do.

A new experience with memberships

I don’t know about the other girls, but I have never experienced an online store where I could become a member and get even better offers than originally. The prices on Michael Ginnerskov Jensen’s online store are already great! The plus here is that as a member of the online store club, you get access to even more exclusive products at better prices. I haven’t told the other girls about this yet, but I will… I found several favorites at the online store already. Or well, I guess they will read it here as well! Come to think of it, I think B tried something similar, if not the same. I will have to go back to the blog and read about it later. 

Makeup favorites at Michael Ginnerskov Jensen online store

Allowing myself to shop without feeling bad

We all spend money on a lot of unnecessary things during a month. And sometimes the money I spent buying a sandwich since I did not bring lunch to the office, is something I’d rather spend on a skincare product or a new fashion item. If I do both, I catch myself feeling bad sometimes. Thanks to the club membership on the online store of Michael Ginnerskov Jensen, I get automatically charged money each month. After being charged I get a gift card sent on email, and I can use it on the exclusive section of the store. They have makeup, clothing, shoes, purses… It’s just perfect for me! And I don’t have to feel bad.

Michael Ginnerskov Jensen is the first man I’ve heard doing this

I’m not an expert at all, but I must admit that I’ve never heard about this concept before. The concept of being in a club and receiving gift cards to shop for. I like it a lot. As far as I understand it’s not necessary to stay a member for a certain amount of time. This is a big plus for me, in case I don’t want to anymore. Or maybe I need a break for a month or two. Because of that, I really like that it’s up to me. I think it’s great that Michael Ginnerskov Jensen lets the customers decide for themselves.

Me shopping

Something that’s genius during Christmas time

Knowing that Christmas is getting closer or closer per day, makes this club so genius. I will be able to get great gifts for all of my family members without breaking the bank. Giving gifts that are appreciated is very important to me. I want them to see that I have thought it through. The online store and concept of Michael Ginnerskov Jensen will definitely help me through this years Christmas shopping. I will advise my girls to do the same.

How to get plump and bigger lips in a natural way!

Get plump and bigger lips!

Have you ever wished for bigger lips? Without having to contact a surgeon or getting injections. I honestly will have to admit that I have. That is why I have tried different trips and tricks throughout my years. These are the ones that actually work, and are worth doing. It’s not hard and only takes a couple of minutes. Okay, fine, I won’t end up with a Kim Kardashian pout, but i’ll still see a difference, and that’s good enough for me! And, it’s free! The only things you actually need are your favorite lipstick, a lip gloss, a lip liner and simple contouring skills! Let’s make magic! 

One of the most important things to remember is to moisturize

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! I can’t say it enough! If you want your makeup to look flawless you can’t have dry and chapped lips. If they are really dry I would advise you to use a light scrub. You can do this in a really simple way! Just use a wet cloth and rub this softly over your lips.

Tips for bigger lips

You should also use a good and moisturizing lip balm in your daily life. This will keep your lips from drying out or becoming chapped. At the moment I’m completely hooked on this one, smells so good and does wonders for my lips! If your dry lips are really bad, place a good amount of this lip balm on your lips before bedtime and let it work its magic overnight. Usually, I have to do this during the winter months. The cold and crisp air is not good for the sensitive skin on your lips, luckily there are good procuts like this out there to help. 

Lip liner is essential for bigger and more plump lips! 

It’s important to be precise when choosing a lip liner. You should never choose one that is too dark in comparison to your lips. Just a tad darker than the lipstick you’re going to be using. Apply the lip liner around the outlines of your lips, never above. I know how tempting this could be, and how easy it is to think this will make my lips look bigger. Don’t fall for the trap! Just apply it on the outlines of your upper and lower lip, avoiding the corners. 

Your lipstick should be a shade lighter than your lipliner. 

This will help add volume. Finish it off by adding some lip gloss. This will give you a bit of shine, making your mouth more reflective. This gives the illusion of bigger lips. And who doesn’t want that? If you prefer a more natural look, THIS might be the perfect read for you! 

Get bigger lips

As a last touch, contour yourself to bigger lips! 

To give yourself a professional finish, add some highlighter. You can apply the highlighter above your upper lip. If you don’t have a highlighter, a good tip is to use a white or bright eye shadow. Hope you liked my tips! Voilà! It’s that easy!

Things you must see and do in Barcelona

Parque Guell Barcelona

I love to travel, and one of my favorite places to go to is Barcelona. I’ve been there a couple of times, and I’m definitely going back. I want to give you my personal recommendations on things to do and see in Barcelona, in case you decide to go there too. 

A city with a lot of different things to do

One of my favorite things when it comes to Barcelona, it’s that there are so many different things you can do there. If you’ve never been there before, I would absolutely recommend that you do some sightseeing. The city has a lot of beautiful architecture and other things to see. An architectural treasure is for sure La Sagrada Familia, which is known worldwide. The ancient roman architecture is particularly beautiful. Check out the website HERE if you want to. It’s curious because it’s still not finished… But I’ve heard it shall be finished in 2026! We will see, cause I’ll be back in Barcelona at that time.

Artsy architechture

Another gorgeous thing to see is Park Güell that is made by Antonio Gaudi. It’s big and beautiful. An absolute tourist attraction for a reason! Remember to bring your camera on your sightseeing round. I can really recommend to bring some lunch and eat in the park. It’s really big and the views are lovely. You won’t regret it. If you want to read about another big city that’s worth visiting, press HERE.

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

Enjoying the typical Spanish culture in Barcelona

Something that you, of course, cannot avoid no matter where you are in Spain, is eating tapas. In Barcelona, you will find a lot of cute and rustic tapas bars, where you’ll be welcomed by a big smile. I would recommend that if you go to eat tapas you buy a lot of different ones. By doing that you get to try a lot of different tastes, and I assure you that you will not be disappointed. If you dare, you should ask the waiter for his favorites, and give them a shot. Trust me, if the waiter there recommends you something, it’s for sure either a best-seller in general – or a secret treasure.

Beautiful Barcelona

Barcelona has it all

What’s so great about Barcelona, is that it really has it all. You can go shopping, and find both high-end brands, or small Spanish stores. If you want a beach day, you find the beach close by. Bring your towel, but make sure you either go there early or in the afternoon. I’ve seen that it gets crowded pretty fast… If you choose to go there in the morning and spend the whole day, I wanna advise you to not forget your sunscreen. The sun is very strong in Spain, and the rest of the vacation is no fun if you have a severe sunburn.

A place to visit several times…

Like mentioned earlier, there is a lot to see and do in Barcelona, and I would advise you to do a mix of everything. Take a day to really go around with your camera and take a look at those special buildings with amazing architecture, and another one at the beach. On the third day, you can go shopping. Whatever you feel like! But don’t forget to enjoy tapas and sangría at night.

My all-time favorite tips for accessories! 

Tips for accessories! 

Accessories have always been one of my favorite things when it comes to fashion and style! You can literally transform an entire outfit just by adding a belt here, some earrings there, or a plunging necklace. Go from office mode to wine night with the girls in no time. If you do accessories right it can almost seem like magic going from a plain dress to a WOW outfit. All thanks to a few simple steps! Here are my absolute favorite tips for how to make the most out of your accessories. 

Don’t overdo it with accessories! Keep it simple and classy! 

If you’re using a large belt as a statement piece, don’t add that gigantic necklace as well. Think of it as a rule to have no more than 3 medium to large accessories on you. If you’re working with larger accessories, it’s also important to think of the colors. They need to match. Keep it all within the same style and color. This way you will get a red line through your outfit, and it will flow together more naturally. With smaller pieces, you should still think of the same rules, but a bit more freely. Check out this shop for the most trendy accessories!  

Accessories for days!

Matching handbags and shoes are not necessary! 

“You have to match your shoes and handbag!” How many times have you heard this rule? And honestly, it’s just not true! Why do you have to match? Yes, sometimes it does look cool, or even adds to the outfit. But so many women feel the need to always follow this advice. Say you are wearing really light and bright shoes, then it’s going to look great together with a handbag with a completely different bright color. The two colors can make each other pop, and thereby you stand out! 

Choose one or another! Colorful clothes or accessories! 

Are you rocking that new bright red dress? Or that new summer dress? Awesome! But maybe don’t add that orange and purple belt around your waist! When looking at an outfit, your eyes should either be dragged towards the clothes or the accessories, not both. It’s important to have a balance in your outfit. If you are wearing a lot of colors, this could be the day to make the most out of your smaller accessories. 

Jewelry and accessories

A rule to live by for lovers of pastel

I love wearing pastels! Nothing looks as clean-cut and stylish as an outfit put together of different pastel colors. Dusky or bright pastel colors go easily together like they are sliding from one color to the next. That’s why it’s so important not to disrupt this flow. In other words, don’t wear black or dark shoes together with your pastel outfit. It will completely ruin the pastel look. Same with other accessories, keep them in a light tone. This will give you a more complete look.

My must have skincare products at the moment!

skin roller

As you guys know by now, I really care about taking care of my skin. I use a lot of products, but at the same time I also try out a lot of new products often… It’s just so much fun! I thought I’d make a post about my favorite products at the moment. Maybe we share some favorites? Or maybe you have some products that you can recommend me! 

I can never get enough moisture

Something that is really important for my skin, and for me to keep my skin bouncy, is hydration. If my skin is dry, I can just forget about looking good. Because of that, I always have a lot of products on my shelf that focuses on hydration. If you are a newbie when it comes to skincare, read my post about skincare 101 HERE. Something that I love doing is putting a super hydrating mask on me, right before I go to bed. I then sleep with the mask all night and wake up with a super plump face that is sooo hydrated. I love it! It’s just such an easy way to do it.

At the moment my favorite hydrating mask is from Origins. They have an overnight mask with avocado which I simply adore. Really recommendable. If you want to read about why you should sleep with a mask at night from someone else’s perspective, you can do that HERE.

My favorite products

One of the most potent products I have

Another one of my favorite products is the glow toner from PIXI Beauty. It has 5% glycolic acid, which really helps clean my pores. I notice a BIG difference from before I started using this toner, after cleansing my face. I use it morning and night after I’ve cleansed my face. It leaves my skin feeling really good. Another positive thing with this toner is that I feel like my makeup simply is prettier when I apply it after this. I don’t know if it’s because of the natural glow I get from within, or if it’s because the canvas (my face, haha) is so prepped and clean. Probably a mix of both.

Effortless brows with great products

Benefit Cosmetics is a brand I just love when it comes to brow products. After I discovered the brow pencil that they call “precisely, my brow” eyebrow pencil, I’ve been hooked. The pencil has such a thin tip that it lets me fill in my brows with a very natural result. I can actually draw on hairs, on the areas where I lack it. I couldn’t be happier! In addition, which also is one of the reasons for it being one of my favorites… It’s smudge-proof up until 12 hours. That really makes my days easier! Not having to worry about my brows, haha.

eyebrow products

Sharing our favorites with each other

I really enjoy the opportunity of sharing my favorite products with you guys. And that you guys actually can respond and give us feedback here on this blog! So much fun! Please let me know, have you guys tried out one or more of my favorites before? What do you think? Do you have any other favorites that you think I should try? I look forward to hearing about them. As you know by now, I just love to try new things, so I’m very open for it!

Is Love is blind actually worth watching?

Love is blind worth the watch

Is it really worth investing over 10 hours into watching this reality TV show? And the answer is, yes, yes it really is! Oh, the drama! So much happens. Couples break up, fall in love, and even get married! This is a spoiler-free zone, and I won’t use any names or reveal how things ended. So if you haven’t seen the show yet, this is a safe read! With everything that’s been going on in the world, I had some extra hours to kill on the couch. Also, all my friends are hooked on this show. It only took an episode, and I became addicted. Here’s why you should watch and gossip about Love is blind! 

What is the concept of Love is blind?

Thirty men and women who all wish to find eternal love gather together. Through the first 10 days, they all date each other. This is happening rapidly and intensely. Like a 24/7 speed date. It’s like they all go from 0 to 100 in a split of a second. While they are dating they are not able to see one another. They are dating in so-called “pods”! Everyone has their own room, with a wall in the middle hiding the other person they are dating.

This is the actual concept of the show. Is love really blind? Can love blossom without knowing how the other person looks physically? For me, this wasn’t that interesting, considering Netflix only chose what you would call attractive people in the first place. 

Love is blind, or is it?

Why should I bother watching Love is blind? 

Let’s sum it up with one name, Jessica! Haha, no, I’m just joking. And I promise that was not a spoiler, but something you’ll realize after watching. Trust me. This show is perfect if you just want something easy to watch. Or maybe you’re like me and have a friend group who can’t stop talking about all the people on the show. So you watch it just to join conversations. 

The show moves very quickly, so it doesn’t get boring or repetitive. Even though reality shows like this aren’t really a new concept (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, etc.)  it still felt like something new. Like a breath of fresh air. I especially fell in love with one of the couples, they are so cute! Had you seen the show, you’d know who I’m talking about. If you still don’t seem convinced to watch this show, maybe reality isn’t for you? Do you prefer crime, if so I’d recommend you to have a look HERE!

I believe Love is blind

What happens in Love is blind?

The couples making it through to the next step of the process, are the ones who have proposed and received a yes. They are then immediately taken on a vacation to Mexico! The best part about this is that all the couples are staying at the same hotel.

Some of them got strong emotions for other people they talked to in the “pods”, this will be the first time they get to see each other! While on vacation with their new finance. The last episode is about the wedding day. Who will say yes at the altar?

Smoothie bowl for breakfast

smoothie bowl breakfast

I really enjoy eating healthy… But even more important, I want what I eat to taste good. Because of that, I’ve started to really make an effort when it comes to breakfast… I love starting my day off with a delicious smoothie bowl! I have curated a really simple recipe that I really enjoy making in the mornings. It’s very easy and very fast. All you need is three ingredients and a blender… 

A colorful start of the day

One thing that I really enjoy when it comes to a smoothie bowl, is that it’s very colorful. You can’t go wrong… Or well, at least I haven’t so far, haha! Having a breakfast that really gives me energy and really makes me smile, is a really big plus for me. In addition to that, it truly feels amazing filling my belly up with vitamins and nutrients.

Before I started making smoothie bowls for breakfast, I usually just had some dry bread… So boring, right?! And I really had to force myself to eat it… Haha, because we all know there is no enjoyment in eating a dry piece of bread.

On the other hand, now I cannot wait to make my smoothie bowl and enjoy my breakfast. I’m so happy that I discovered the passion for actually taking a bit of time in the morning. It’s so worth it. After all – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you wanna try something good for dinner though, you can try my recipe HERE.

Breakfast for champions

When I have the opportunity to actually sit down and eat my breakfast, my day starts so much better. I really enjoy making a smoothie bowl for my friends or if I have someone visiting. Something I love is that it’s so easy to mix up which topping you want. And if there is something you’re not THAT fond of, you don’t have to put it on… Or switch it out with something else.

My favorite right now is different types of berries. I also enjoy combining the berries with some granola on the top. Granola is such a typical thing that screams breakfast to me. That might be why I like it so much.

The simple recipe

You only need…

  • Frozen berries of your choice
  • Frozen banana
  • Soy milk with vanilla taste (yum! but feel free to switch this out with another type of milk)

Mix all of this in a blender, and make sure you don’t add too much of the liquid in… Do it slowly so you can easily control the texture. When it’s perfectly blended, you just have to put it in a bowl and add your favorite topping. Easy right? If you want to try even more types than this one, I want to advise you to press HERE. There are so many benefits of eating fruits and veggies for breakfast, so I strongly advise you to at least give it a shot. I cannot imagine that you won’t like it.

Effortless hair – the messy bun

Products for the bun

One of my favorite things to do with my hair if I just want it out of my face is a messy bun. I love the effortless look it makes. As if I have used no time what so ever. I can make it more polished if I want to, but I actually prefer it to be rather messy. 

The bun that needs (almost) no products

When I make my messy bun, I rarely use a lot of products. I wash with a shampoo and conditioner that I got recommended by my hairdresser. They are perfect for my hair, which tends to be a bit dry. I also do a mask once a week.

Except for the products I use in the shower, I don’t use a lot in my hair. Some dry shampoo if necessary, and some saltwater spray if I want a beachy look… That’s more for the summer though. I love that I can mix it up however I feel like it. If you want to read about how to achieve a “no makeup” makeup look, you can press HERE.

Hair that looks like you used no time on it, in a good way

Something that I find great about the bun, is that it looks like I spent very little time on it. Because of that, I always get a lot of compliments on my hair. My friends always say that I’m so blessed with naturally good-looking hair… What they don’t know (until now, haha) is that I actually spend quite some time on it. In addition to the products I’ve mentioned earlier, I try to avoid damaging my hair. I make sure to airdry it…

That’s actually something I recommend for the messy bun. You don’t need perfectly blow-dried hair for that, haha. If you are insecure about how to do it, check out a helpful Youtube video HERE. Another thing I do is that I rarely use heating tools on it. If I want wavy hair I braid my hair when it’s still damp, and sleep with the braids… The following day I have perfect waves. The only thing needed is to drag my fingers through my hair.

Not the best hairdo on all occasions

I must admit that the messy bun is not something to do if you want to look polished or really exquisite… It’s supposed to look like you’ve spent no time. It’s perfect for a day in the park, or a hike. In addition to that, it’s great for a beach day or a movie night. Any time you want to be relaxed.

If I have plans where I need to look more polished, I prefer to have my hair all-natural. Another possibility is to make the bun super tight and not messy at all. Then you can also use a lot of product to make it sit, and give it kind of a wet-look finish as well.
