Has it actually started to look like summer?

Hi dolls,

For the past couple of days the sun has been out and the temperature is actually nice and I can finally wear some of my summer clothes. It took Holland long enough to catch up! 

It is the end of the month, which means a June favorites video is coming up. I am currently still in the process of editing. But it should be online soon. 

Also it was my younger brother's high school graduation the other day and officially everyone in my family has graduated from high school. Hurrayy!!! I did not attend because, he could only have two guests so my parents went along and me and my other brother stayed home.... 

Anyways I will post a blogpost once the June favorites video will be up.

New OPI Neon Polishes

Hi dolls,

OPI has followed with the Neon Craze that has been going this summer. And they have released a cute all in one neon mini pack so you don't have to worry about only choosing one neon color you will get 4 colors!

I am a fan of these mini packs because you don't have to spend money on just a full size which I have never finished anyways. And especially for the limited edition ones, they are usually on-trend for like one season anyways so for me there is no point into buying all the colors full size and full price. 

Credit to OPI NL for letting me use this image

But I do have to say these neon colors look so fun to play with! Except maybe the purple, don't know if that is a real neon color.

The collection is called ''Outrageous Neons'' and you will get the following polishes.

First you will get a special Neon White Base, which you apply so your color will pop out even more and you also get a top coat so your nails look NEON for longer.

The first color is called ''Ridiculously Yellow'' which is a bright yellow color as the name implies.
The second color is called ''Formidably Orange'' which is a bright orange color. (This color would have been great if Holland would still be in the Eurocup 2012)
The third color is called ''Riotously Pink'' which is a bright pink color.
The fourth color is called ''Seriously purple'' I have to say it looks kinda dark to me. But maybe when you apply it won't look so dark.

These colors will be available from now on so go get you some if you have been eying up some of these neon color polishes.

My May Glossy Box & Truly Yours Box Favorites

Hi dolls,

I wanted to introduce to you all a new segment that will present my pick for favorites from last month's subscription boxes. As you know, I am subscribed to Glossy Box and Truly Yours Box and I thought I would pick my favorite product each month of each box.

Starting off with the May boxes. I filmed a video about it and put it on YouTube which you can watch here. Let me know what you think and if I should continue... I would love to get some feedback. For my June boxes check out my YouTube channel because the unboxing videos are on there.

My ASOS Sale Wish List

Hi dolls,

As I mentioned yesterday the ASOS sale is on. And although I am not allowed from myself to spend any money right now. I still made a wish list of all the items that I want. All of the items mentioned will be under the 20 euros mark because I like a bargain and lets say if your budget is 100 euros you can buy multiple items. And some of the items will only be on-trend for just one season and I personally believe it would be a waste of money to spend too much.

ASOS Sale!

Hi dolls,

As you all probably have noticed, the sales have started almost everywhere. Although some of the sales are not worth checking out yet (meaning only 30% off sales) some of the sales already have 50% or even 70% off. But now ASOS have marked down some of their sale items a bit further to 50% and I have to say there are some nice pieces here and there. I need to go take a browse and be very careful with what I buy, because I do need to save up some money... (always there is some kind of distraction)

So go to and check out the sale. I will do a post with some of my wanted items in the next couple of days. So happy shopping!

New segment

Hi dolls,

Today I want to introduce and re-introduce a segment just for mondays. I want to call Movie Monday and Music Monday. Each monday I will do one of these segments, just to put some more variety into my blog because it has been focused on beauty a little too much lately. Although it has attracted more visitors to my blog I still want to blog about what I find interesting instead of just focusing on beauty which is not only time consuming but also very expensive especially when it comes to trying out new products. Of course you will still get the beauty posts but weekly there will be more variety. 

So to start off, I will be doing a Movie Monday. This movie was marketed to be amazing and there were sequels planned before it even came out in theaters. I am talking about the movie ''John Carter'' I watched this the other day and I have to say the concept and the idea is good and I understand why the books can be very popular. But it is one of those movies that when you have not read the book, you are basically clueless for the first half of the movie and by the time everything clicks the movie is almost over. 

I think overall the concept of John Carter is good but the execution could be much better and I expect better from a Disney movie. It could potentially be a TV series, because there is so much to tell. But as a movie I would not recommend it. 

So basically Mondays will be either Movie Monday which will be reviews of the latest movies I watched or Music Monday where I share my latest music obsession.

Hi dolls,

Today I have an exclusive for you guys. I mentioned in a previous post the web shop ''Sakura Zeep'', which is a soap web shop, much like the famous ''Lush''. Sakura Zeep, makes hand made soap and other things that basically made to order. Which probably takes an extra couple days but then again you do receive a specially made for you soap. They have soaps which you can customize to your liking. You can choose the scents, the colors it is amazing! I keep going to their webshop and just looking at everything which just looks so yum!! As you know I placed an order and I am currently waiting for my order to arrive, I placed it on Friday so probably will be getting it on Tuesday or Wednesday. Because I placed it during the weekend. 

Their customer service is amazing, you can ask anything through twitter or just emailing. They respond super fast. Once you have placed the order you receive a confirmation and if your order can go through normal mail, they send you an email asking whether you want it by normal post mail or package mail because normal post mail is half the price. So that is amazing, some web shops basically don't care and will just send it by package or even normal mail but still charge you the package mail price. 

So yeah for the exclusive, with every order you place with the code ''ellenyu'' you will receive a 10% off your order. This only applies to your order without shipping but shipping is pretty cheap considering they are shipping soap and that is pretty heavy. Go to the webshop and just browse around, I do have to warn you. You will not leave the webshop without ordering anything lol. 

Of course once my order is in, I will be doing a haul video and review. 

I do have to say they currently only offer shipping to Belgium and the Netherlands, but you can always ask them if they can ship to your country and how much it will costs. You can send them an email on this email address; or you can tweet them @SakuraZeep

Happy Shopping! Don't forget to use the ''ellenyu'' discount code for your 10% off!

Truly Yours June 2012 Unboxing

Hi dolls,

Once again there is another box to unbox this month. I was scared I would not get this box today because I received my track & trace email pretty late yesterday evening. So I thought, I have to wait until Tuesday because they don't deliver on Monday. But I was very excited when the doorbell rang and I saw the box with the cute Truly Yours sticker on it. 

For the dutchies out there that still need to receive this box don't continue but if you want to know what you will be getting please do continue...

Latest webshop find

Hi dolls,

I just wanted to share with you all my latest webshop find that I am absolutely in love with. It is the ''Sakura Zeep'' shop, this is such a cutesy soap webshop. I just love it! Unfortunately this webshop is currently only open for Dutch and Belgium shoppers but if your Dutch is good enough you can still have a browse. They have the cutest soaps. And they are all made to order. 

taken from sakura website

To go to the website go to

I have ordered 2 extra little soaps to give away. Details will follow and it will be open for all my readers, so internationally. So stay tuned on my blog and on my YouTube channel as I will be announcing it there as well. 

ELF has 20% off their studio line

Hi dolls,

Just a quick post saying that ELF Cosmetics Dutch website is now having a rare 20% off on their studio line with the code; MUSIQUE

I do have to say the shipping is quite expensive so be careful with that. I think it is either 6 or 7 euro so if you are not planning on a bigger order it is not really worth it. I still think it is so unfair that the US website get such amazing offers and the Dutch site gets nothing basically! Or they announce it on their facebook, which obviously not everyone checks. They told me that I had to sign up for their newsletter but I did with 2 different emails and still no email! I did receive the confirmation email though, but I think more people have the same problem.... I just hope ELF fix it.

Mirror, Mirror

Hi dolls,

the other day, I was watching Mirror, Mirror one of the most recent Snow White fairy tale adaptions the other one being Snow White and the Huntsman. 

I have to say it was an alright movie. Its just a fun girly movie to watch when you have nothing to do or you are just having a girly night in. I have to say that the characters are just fun, Julia Roberts is a great actress and it is just fun to see her as the Evil Queen. But she is not a very dark evil queen like Charlize Theron is in the The Huntsman movie. I am waiting to watch that movie as well. But now back to Mirror, Mirror. 

Lily Collins makes a nice Snow White she is cute and adorable. And I really liked her make-up not too overly done. And still it is a wearable look. I have filmed a tutorial inspired of the Lily Collins Snow White look. So I will have to edit that and then upload it so hopefully it will be up soon.

I did however recorded a video so I will be uploading that tomorrow and definitely tomorrow the post about the latest in the beauty boxes craze will be posted.

Great news they are sending out the Glossy Box June edition next week!!! I am super excited about that, but it also means that the Truly Yours box should follow soon if not next week. It feels like my birthday and Christmas all in one!

Sigma Beauty Discount Code!

Hi dolls,

You might have seen this code floating around for a while now. But I just had to sort some things out before I could make a post about this. And also I basically forgot lol.

The code is for a nice 10% off the brushes.

Blend Box is a SCAM!

Hi dolls,

I was so excited when there was going to be an all cosmetics monthly subscription box. And not only me, but a lot of the girls out there was too. So you could say we were all very excited when the Blend Box website launched and we could all order our first box. Well the website crashed as some of you might have known if you read my previous post about this. And then when I finally managed to get my hands on a box, they were still figuring out all the orders a week or two later. They still have not decided what was going on, and if people ordered double or whatever it was the case. 

But now, apparently we are all getting a refund (which all us have not seen even though it was announced over a week ago). I mean I don't get it. What the F went wrong? I mean Blend Box, I assume prepared the boxes and considered the amount of boxes. And now everyone is getting their money back?! They said on their twitter they had 5000 boxes in stock and now all those 5000 boxes are basically going to waste? I just don't get it. People who ordered successfully should just receive their boxes and then you can quite your company. I mean there is I think more hassle in refunding everyone then sending out those 5000 boxes. 

Anyways, I think this is absolutely ridiculous and we should get the box that we deserve because we have waited long enough and we went through enough trouble to get our hands on one of those boxes. And now we all just get a refund and be done with it. I think it is some BULLSHH...

ELF 32 Eyeshadows Palette Review

Hi dolls,

it has been a while since I last did a proper update. I was sick yesterday and there has been a few things going on in my personal life that has been just insane!

So when there is a lack of updates, it is not because I have nothing to update about but it is because there is too much going on in my personal life. 

Anyhow, on to the update. I have an E.L.F. review video for you all...

MTV Movie Awards tonight!

Hi dolls,

Tonight is the MTV Movie Awards, and I for one cannot wait. It must be one of my favorite award shows out there. Just because there are some more unique categories in there. The favorite villain, favorite fight scene, favorite kiss scene etc. I just love it!! And of course I like the mock scenes from the biggest movies of the year. I can't wait to see what the celebs will be wearing, I love to see what daring outfits they will be wearing this year. 

Will you be watching? And what award show is your favorite? Let me know...

My TV obsession for the week

Hi dolls,

It has been a very slow week for me on the beauty front this week. And also on the fashion front it has been a while, I have decided however. To keep my fashion addiction to a minimum, but I think I will still keep you guys updated on my favorites. I will definitely will be having some updates on the beauty front next week. As reviews on my May Glossy Box that I received last week. Unboxing video of that can be found in an earlier post.

But my TV obsession for this week has been Ringer, a CW show with Sarah Michelle Gellar in the lead role. She plays a twin role where she obviously plays both of the twins and to be honest the cast of the show is amazing! The story lines however are a little bit rough. I am currently half way through the season and I am not just watching it because I want it to finish and want to know what the ending is like. Even though it is not my favorite I do have to call it an obsession because I have to watch it just so I know how it ends. 

I feel bad for the actors of the show but the show did not get a second season and will not get a renewal. I think this is fair, as the show started out ok, midway is pretty good and I think it will be going downhill again towards the end. I love Sarah Michelle Gellar, and it sucks that her show is ending like this. But I hope she will be either doing some movie roles or another TV show soon. 

Let me know what you all think of the show, or another recommendation of what I should watch next.
