We love fashion, ofcourse you know that by now. But how much do you know about your favorite designers? The last couple of years a lot has changed in the fashion world. Switch of designers, new designers entering the market, or oldies stirring up some contreversy. Today I share some of my favorite designers with you. In the spotlight this week: Ralph&Russo, Marchesa and Dolce & Gabbana.

Ralph & Russo. Ralph & Russo is definately one of my favorite fashion houses. This fashion house  started in 2007, so is still very young. They create beautiful, feminine designs with a lot of eye for detail. Wearable high fashion, under the lead of creative director Tamara Ralph. Ze runs Ralph &Russo together with Russo, hence the name. This fashion house became more famous after they designed an outfit for Beyoncé's performance in the White House. And they also designed the outfits for her 'Miss Carter'tour. The last collection the've designed, is their Coutoure Spring-Summer 2016 collection. Simply stunning! ralph-_-russo-ss16-look-31-thumb

Marchesa. Marchesa exists since 2004. When I hear Marchesa, luxury, royalty, wealth and award season comes to mind. Marchesa is founded by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. To me, the're a machtch made in heaven. And Marchesa is also a much wanted name in the bridal department. I find that their collections are classic and modern at the same time. The last collection the've shown is their Fall 2016 Ready to Wear collection.  Marchesa ss16 ready to wear

Dolce& Gabbana. This Italian fashion house is a well known fashion brand, or hell even an empire if you ask me. Every season Domenico Dolce and Stephano Gabbana make us happy with a beautiful collection. Sometimes with some contreversy. Like with their Spring/Summer 2015 collection  where family and especially the mom were the focus. The traditional family that is. Despite the contreversy, Dolce&Gabbana is a succes. The sicillian culture is an important and constant factor in their colections. The last collection the've shown is their Fall/Winter 2016-17 collection. In this collection they show that high fashion and being a modern day princess is no issue! dolce-and-gabbana-fall-winter-2016-17-women-fashion-show-runway-961-800x533Picture: Dolce & Gabbana

Do you have damaged or dry hair? Since the birth of my little one, my hair got even worse. It’s very important that my hair stays well hydrated and nourished. Besides drinking enough water and eating healthy (ahem), it’s also important to start with the base: shampoo and conditioning. Dove developed a new line especially for the repair of extreme damaged hair.Dove Regenerate RepairI love the packaging already: tubes that are upside down already. No bottles turned in the bathroom anymore! ;) I started with the Dove Regenerate Repair Shampoo. The shampoo is infused with red algae and keratine complex, which have a hydrating and nourishing effect. Because I use a lot of styling products, I put the shampoo on only my scalp first for 30 minutes. This is before I start washing my hair. The shampoo is creamy and foams well. Because I don’t have European hair, it’s very important that the shampoo doesn’t dry out my hair or tangles it. Well, the shampoo passes with flying colors for this one! After washing my hair I use the Regenerate Repair Conditioner. I divide it from my roots to end. While I let the conditioner do it’s job, I put on a facemask. After I rinsed my hair, I can easily detangle my hair.dove regenerate Repair 2

The shampoo is mild enough to use on a daily basis, but if your hair is really damaged and dry, I wouldn’t recommend it. My hair is clean and soft and feels great. Off to a great head of healthy hair!

When it comes to makeup products, I often switch brands. Because one is good in mascara and the other in foundation that matches the best with my skin. Recently I came in touch with Delilah cosmetics. This is a luxury beauty brand that is  becoming  the brand that belongs to one of the best makeup brands at the market. And I'm not the type that can say this easily. The strategy of Delilah is that they stick to the capsule collection which they've developed. They do not launch a new collection every season, but they continue to invest and believe in the 19 products they already have. Well, this said..2016-04-07 20.26.53

One of my favorite makeup must-have product is a good blush, which I always have with me everywhere in my purse. A good blush is the one that makes you look fresh and create a natural look. I have tested the compact powder blush of Delilah, which comes in a luxurious velvet bag. And I can tell you right now; this is the product for a perfect blush!2016-04-07 20.24.36I tested out the Lullaby version of the compact powder blush (€ 32.50). You do need a good brush for applying the blush on your cheeks. You can choose to use the professional brush of Delilah. For a healthy and therefore more naturally flushed look, apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend it backward to the top of your cheeks. Tip: smile to aim your apple cheeks. If you like a sculpted look, bring the blush along the top of the cheekbone and then a little tighter to the side of both cheeks.

PhotoGrid_1460011934463The makeup is dermatologically tested, not on animals, environmentally friendly produced and naturally free of parabens. Delilah cosmetics can be obtained from a range of spa and beauty salons and in the high-end barbershops. In Amsterdam you can buy Delilah cosmetics at the beauty salon Babassu Skin & Spa or at the website www.delilahcosmetics.com Prices range from € 25, - to € 60, -.2016-04-07 20.25.06

This product of Delilah has me interested in the rest of the collection! I really love it.2016-04-07 20.26.27

Since last month I'm one of Glamours Beautylovers Estee Lauder. Which pretty much entails that I get to review a new product every month. This time I've received the Perfectly Clean facial cleanser.Glamour beautylover

The base for beauty is a beautiful skin. Ofcourse your diet and vitamins are very important, but especially when you wear make up, it's important to cleanse your face every night. Nothing fancy about a leather skin with big pores.

I have the red spots on my skin and I've got to be honest that I haven't been pampering myself lately. I also wanted to test if I could rinse all the make up from my face with only the cleanser. This was no issue! The cleanser feels rich and creamy on my skin. Another great pro is that the cleanser can also be used as a facial mask. 3 minutes on your skin and rinse of. How simple is that?glamour beauty lover perfectly clean mask

The package of the perfect Cleanser says that you can use it in the morning and evening. Personally, I only clean my face with a cleanser at night. In the morning water will do.

Overall I'm really happy with the Perfect Cleanser. Super easy and it feels amazing on my skin. A great base for a beautiful skin!

Barbie: who doesn't know her. The first style icon for  a lot of little girls (and boys). Also mine, as shown on the picture below. Just turned 4 years old and rocking my 80's style outfit.   And yes with my first barbie, waffle hair and scrunchy included. Even now Barbie is still an inspiration for the fashion world. Remember the SS15 collection of MOSCHINO? Barbie anything is possible

Today Barbie is more than just a fashion icon. Barbie has emancipated. Not only the beauty, but also the brains. Mattel wants to show that Barbie inspires girls to become whatever they want. Vet, professor at the university; you name it, the sky is the limit! YOU CAN BE ANYTHING

 No longer is Barbie just a doll with the 'perfect'sizes. Worldwide there are Barbies with 4 body types, 7 different skin colors, 22 eye colors and 25 different hair styles available. Barbie is the doll that every girl wants to play with and inspires them to become whatever they want. Mattel has launched a new campaign to illustrate this. Watch the movie here!

On the best day of your life, you also want to your lingerie at it's best! Therefore Passionata has released a bridal collection, in which you can feel sexy, confident and comfortable. This French lingerie brand knows how to seduce your significant other. The collection is very sweet, with a touch of glamour. When I saw the campaign images, I was immediately very excited. Cartoon details and the beautiful models with their statement looks, makes this whole collection a musthave collection in your closet. Even if you're not really going to get married. My favorite is the black set, where both the bra and the panties is partly decorated with lace.

Passionata is one of the better-known lingerie brands that are inter alia obtainable from Livera and De Bijenkorf. Are you curious about the other exciting collections of Passionata, click HERE.

Can you feel the hot sun already? Although the weather is still pretty cold, I just love to be outside a lot these days to enjoy the sun. Due to the changeable weather in Holland, it's important to think carefully how you dress. This week it's all about the everyday Spring look with a throwback to the '90s. I chose for a leather pencil skirt that has a good quality. The split makes the skirt really sexy. This beautiful yellow jersey of the Hennes is one of my favorite sweaters of the moment. A cozy and warm sweater can be a good add to the skirt these days. With the wide sweater and the itsy bitsy tight skirt you create a well balanced volume look. And yes we can wear our denim spring jacket again! This denim jacket is oversized and fits well with the thick sweater. It also gives this style a more sportier look, because you combine it with the white Converse sneakers. This season it's all about the white sneakers. The Converse is a classic and fits nicely with the complete look. In terms of accessories, I chose a red side bag which matches strikingly beautiful with yellow and blue. The statement necklace and headphones completes the look. And ... Ta daaa, this is my ready for Spring look!

For this Look of the Week I was inspired by sweet pastel colors, but styled in a way that it's chic. A grown up princess look, for every day or business meetings. The base of this look is pretty simple. A cashmere sweater is a must in every womans closet.I chose this beautiful powder pink sweater by Peter Hahn. To keep this look classy, I opted for a trousers instead of a jean. I also like the fact that you can opt for more accessories when your base is this light. It takes a lot to make this too much. The big bag by Picard goes well with this look. And the glitter pumps by L'enfant Terrible give this outfit an extra edge.  Kate Spade always has lots of fun goodies and this phone case is ready for the weekend ;) The earrings and watch compliment this look perfectly.  And of course a red lipstick and polish to finish this look!
