Dinner Parties & Furniture Shopping | Loepsie’s Life

Happy Monday, my lovely readers! I had quite the chaotic morning today. I suddenly realised (shock, horror) that I forgot to do my tax reports, so I had to race to Utrecht to get my administration. Now I’m back though, and ready to share my past week with you 🙂 My life pretty much revolves around the upcoming move right now. Can’t believe it’s only three weeks away! We made some more preparations this week, I met up with my friends from uni, and of course there was plenty of work to be done as well.

Hello ladies… Haha! How cute is this photo of Llewelyn?

Witch Fortune Teller | Easy Halloween Makeup Tutorial

I’m back with another Halloween makeup tutorial! This is one that you can easily recreate at home in little time. You can combine it with a simple black outfit with lots of layers and rags, preferably.

If you don’t have access to rigid collodion, you can draw the scars on using makeup for a similar effect. I’m using the Mehron brand rigid collodion. Please don’t apply to too near the eyes! If at any point the scarring liquid hurts or feels uncomfortable, remove it asap. That being said, enjoy the video!

Denim & Pumpkin Coloured Flanel | OOTD

Whenever I come home from a shopping trip, the first thing I want to do is make outfits with my new items. I can’t be the only one, right? 🙂 Last week Robbert and I made our periodical trip to Primark and I got myself some autumnal basics. Mostly a pile of tights, but I also got this extra long flanel shirt which is absolutely perfect for this season. The colour combination isn’t something I’d usually wear, but it works wonderfully.

It’s been a long time coming, but I also finally got my hands on some nice brown boots that I really like. I don’t know what it is but I struggle with finding good brown shoes so much. Blame it on my love for black, haha! This pair which I found at Primark is very minimal and basic but elegant, exactly how I like it. As both of these new items go perfectly together, I paired them together in a casual autumnal outfit. I find myself gravitating towards simple, more basic outfits more and more as I get older, but I try to make sure they’re not plain or boring. To me, at least 🙂

Preparing For The Move | Loepsie’s Life

Greetings to you on this lovely Monday. I hope you’re all doing well. This past week has been a quiet one for me, my favourite type of week 😉 Time to share what I was up to, through the photos on my phone!

Kicking it off with this week’s grocery haul. I got dark bread, salt & vinegar crisps, spicy hummus, soy meat, tomatoes, bananas, tomato puree, a pumpkin, lentil patties, muesli, chickpeas, crackers, onions and bulgur.
