DE BLIJE DOOS/ THE HAPPY BOX (DUTCH)

 Gratis spullen, wie houd er niet van?! Niet alleen ziet deze box er mooi en strak (en blij toch ook wel he) uit maar de inhoud is ook nog eens top. Luxe producten voor de baby van de juiste merken met de waarde van ongeveer €45 geloof ik. Gewoon handige dingen! Geloof me je hebt nog echt geen idee wat je allemaal aan moet schaffen: Sudo creme? Wat is het beste flesje, hoe lang doe je met een speen en welke merken zijn veilig?
Geloof me, uitzetlijsten zijn helemaal angstaanjagend ("Wat veel!, hydrofiele luiers?")
Lang leve internet en een hoop tijd nemen om je erin te verdiepen.
Thank God voor deze leuke boxen. Ze helpen je wat op weg en het is ongelooflijk leuk om deze gewoon te krijgen en uit te pakken. Ook heb ik de Etos en Kruidvat boxen nog in de aanvraag. Die hebben alleen eigen merk dus ik weet nu al dat deze favoriet is ;)
Totaal niets gesponsord maar ik dacht het is leuk om te laten zien wat er nou in zit. Dat kun je nergens van te voren zien maar je bent toch verdomd nieuwsgierig. Voor de toekomstige moeders die er momenteel een in de aanvraag hebben.: Spoiler allert!
Hij kan ongetwijfeld wat veranderen door de tijd heen.

 (De chocolaatjes en kaartje zit er niet in) Hieronder kun je zien en lezen wat er wel in zit: 
 Pampers: De enige echte. Voor pasgeboren baby's (ja ze bestaan nog in maten ook blijkbaar ..;)) En daar kun je niet genoeg van hebben natuurlijk. Philips Avent fles: Voor echt de allereerste maandjes. Bibi Speen: Handig! Ik had er toevallig net 1 gekocht met de tekst " Papa is the best" maar deze is ook leuk. Je weet nooit hoe vaak je zo'n ding kwijtraakt of gewoon op is. Sudocrem: Wat ik moet geloven van vriendinnen: Wondermiddeltje tegen kloofjes en droge huid. Zowel voor je baby als jijzelf. Sokjes: Fijn en nooit genoeg hiervan. Jordan tandenborstel: Lief zie je het al voor je de eerste tandjes? Wel roze/paars dus echt voor een meisje. Dit hadden ze beter unisex kunnen maken. Gilette scheermes voor mannen: Leuk dat ze er iets voor vaders in doen. Handig en die komt altijd wel van pas! Bavaria Radler bier: Ik ben echt geen bier liefhebber! Helaas. Wel leuk dat ze eraan gedacht hebben. Een Jilz 0%had mij blijer gemaakt! Heel veel kortingsbonnen. Handig en daar zullen zeker enkele van gebruikt worden. Jammer dat er niets van Zwitsal in zit. Zwitsal heeft sowieso geen gratis boxen wat ik al met al toch wel gek vind.

THE STROLLER WE'VE CHOOSE: STOKKE XPLORY

Well it was a hard pick. A stroller for our babygirl. Just to get inspired I took a good friend/ a momy to the store to give me some advice. At first I fell in love with the Joolz strollers. Very pretty and comfortable. I've tried a lot more but could not find what I liked. At first I did not even look at the Stokke strollers because of the prices. A bit overdone if you ask us.
A few weeks later me and my boyfriend got to the Prenatal store to check out the strollers together.
We fell in love with this one! There was a special sale price so this one so that made us very happy and we decided to go for this Stokke Xplory. Very good quality and the best when it comes to tall people (like us).
Also very solid and perfect for a random day in Amsterdam (think about trams etc).

A lot of testing! Doesn't he look's good like this? 

If you also have good experiences with Stokke let me know!

3 REASONS WHY I ALWAYS FALL BACK ON THE NYC BIG BOLD LASHES


1 Sky high
 I love, love , love it. I use this one for years. It just does the job! My lashes are already curly so I don't need more of that. Just length and thickening. Never disapointing and even when I am testing other ones (high-end) I always come back to this one.
2: The price
The price is seriously so low that I always have two back-ups in my stash.
And they even have sale on it. two for €5. Yeah really!
3: Availability.
In every drugstore were they sell NYC. I have the luck that I live above a big Kruidvat store so it's that easy for me to pick a new one up.


The rest on the face is most of all the pregnancy-glow there talking about ;)

SHOPPING FOR BABY CLOTHES

Shopping for this little girl that is not even here yet! It's so much fun to do and it's hard to calm myself. I haven't photographed all the stuff I have but the biggest pard I did. I thought it would be fun to give you a small impression. Included with some tips!
 Zara mini. Most of all the clothes you see is from Zara. There is so much cute stuff and so trendy.
This cute little pants with Panda bears I've ordered it at www.little-moose.be and it's from the brand Dotz and Co. It's hand made! 
I also ordered the white blouse with dots. So classy in combination with this powder pink cardigan.
From the same order at Little Moose and this blouse is from the brand Babidu and comes from Valencia.
 I've showed you these cute shoes from www.donsje.com So happy with these! Powder as the main color for our babygirl. We combine that with mint and neutral colors.
 Unisex because the first 4 months I didn't know if it was going to be a boy or a girl. I like it for both! 

Last but not least. Little indians! I have a few clothes now (also the grey pants behind the sweater).
The brand started only a few years a go but already a big hype! What do you think about this?A very girly but also cool sweater. 





We will be in Barcelona, Ibiza an Italy the next few months so I hope to shop so more there. We also were given some stuff from friends and family.

Please tell me if you have any shopping tips!

BATHROOM DETAILS


The bathroom, my favorite place in the house!  I like to treat myself on some me-time, taking a bath of a long hot shower in combination with some luxurious products. Creating my own little spa!
I love to search online for some bathroom inspiration so that's why I re-decorate it all the time.
So now I am sharing some details from our own bathroom.

On the left: Lately I came across this basket and it fits perfect in our bathroom. I added my favorite soaps (Blanche by Redo, Coco mademoiselle, Chanel n07) a few bath oils and a handtowel from Dille and Kamille.
On the right: you can see empty candle jars from Diptyque filled with cotton pads and cotton swabs.
On the left: The Jo Malone shower/handwash was completely empy and because I love the packaging so much I filled it with normal handsoap. But it still give's you that luxurious feeling! Next to that there is the Blanche soap bar from By Redo.  
On the right: On top of the bath there is this stand where I put my drink, Ipad etc in. But also the product that I will use for the bath that moment.

Ok a little-bit cheating because this is not the bathroom but the toilet! A different area but next to the bathroom. I thought it would be fun to share this also.
On the left: a basket filled with toiletpaper and next to that a frame with a picture of a clean bathroom and my favorite products from Diptyque. The candle "Voilette" which we bought in Paris a few months ago and next to that the '"Mimosa" roomspray.
On the right: handsoap, handcreme and handscrub. And ofcourse there is a clean towel, a mirror and everything else you need :) 
I think it's a very comfy area.
On the left: At the end of the bath there is some extra space were I put candles and this basket. With all kinds of bath products. From lush, The body shop, L' Occitane, Chanel, Aveda and Dermalogica.
Products like bathbombs and bubblebars, oils, scrubs, body lotions and bathfoam. Also  a few exfoliation gloves.
On the right: On top of the cabin there are my favorite scented candles. 


Maybe soon I will show you that's  in my shower! The shower is in the same bathroom of course but I didn't make pictures of that this time.
