Bath & Body Works Candle Haul

The store I regret not having in the Netherlands the most isn’t Sephora, nor Victoria’s Secret… It’s Bath & Body Works. Yep. Since my first days on YouTube, I’ve always admired the cute scented three-wick candles in pretty much every beauty guru’s background. Elle and Blair Fowler’s Bath & Body Works candle hauls were among my absolute favourite videos ever and I’ve always said if I ever made it to the USA, Bath & Body Works would be the first place I’d head to, to fill up my suitcase with their famour scented candles. A few weeks back, I got an opportunity to shop there from my little home in the Netherlands. A package forwarding company called myMallBox offered to let me try their service and have a package delivered from the USA to the Netherlands. As soon as I read the email I knew what I wanted to do with this opportunity, haha! I’ll tell you more about how the service works later, first let’s take a look at what I bought at Bath & Body Works (still can’t believe I’m saying this. That place is like Narnia to me)!

White Tea & Pear Scented Candle

Fragrance notes: sweet white tea, crisp bartlett pear, sparkling bergamot

Ta-dah! Here it is, my first ever real Bath & Body Works three wick scented candle, in the flesh. I spent literally hours in the webshop, trying to decide which one to get. I went for this one in the end; the White Tea & Pear scent. The description sounded like heaven and I’m happy to report the real-life scent doesn’t disappoint. It’s a super fresh and light springtime scent that’s very pleasant, exactly the way I like my home scents. You have no idea how excited I am to prop this up in the background of my videos, haha!
I love the jar itself as well, with the pretty lid and the cute design on the side. When I burn this up, the jar will definitely be repurposed one way or another.

Skiing Holiday | Loepsie’s Life

Happy Monday everybody! I came home yesterday in the afternoon, and woke up this morning to find out that spring has come to the Netherlands. I’m so excited! Give me all the sunshine! But first, let’s take a look at my last winter experience of the year. I spent a week in Austria, skiing!

When we arrived on Saturday, it was super warm in Austria. It was over 10 degrees and there was barely any snow to be seen! Next morning though, we woke up to this winter wonderland. Isn’t this just the most beautiful view? We rented a little chalet on a hill and this is what we saw out the window. I could get used to this.

Trying Pink Colorista Washout On Dark Hair

Last week, l’Oréal invited me to the Dutch launch of their new Colorista range: a set of hair dyes, temporary hair dyes, and coloured hair sprays to easily give hair a fun colour at home. I love this concept and I think they’re right on time with launching this: fun, unnatural hair colours are very fashionable at the moment! I’m happy to see them so easily accessible in drugstores.

They gave me a few items from the Colorista range to try out, among which was this Colorista Washout temporary hair dye in the colour Dirty Pink. I was specifically given a goodie bag for dark hair so even though the packaging says this colour is meant for blondes, I was curious to see whether it would maybe work on my dark hair, even just a little. I decided to hold off trying the bright turquoise dye they also gave me a little longer and start by giving the more subtle Dirty Pink a try. Not just to see how it would show up on my hair, but also to try the dying process with a colour that can’t go horribly wrong. Alright, let’s go!
