EOTD: Anniversary Dinner

This is the EOTD that I wore to pour Anniversary Dinner at the Hielander. I tried to match it to my favourite skirt that is an ombre light to dark green with black print all over it. I think I did pretty well ;)


Products used:
Maybelline Color Tattoo, Infinite White
Maybelline Color Tattoo, Immortal Charcoal
Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow, Tako
Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow, Midori
Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow, Junebug
Inglot Pigment, no. 45
Essence Gel Eyeliner, Midnight In Paris
Gosh Velvet Touc Eyeliner, Black Ink
Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow, Bulletproof


I absolutely adore the Color Tattoos for a base! They stay in place on my eye, much better than the NYX Jumbo Pencils, and you can use different colours all at the same time. It's a shame there really isn't a black one, but the dark grey works pretty well for me.


I love the black on the waterline, but my eyes don't really like it, otherwise I would do it more often. It always leaks away in the outer corner, creating a blank spot on my waterline and a black spot underneath my eye. Setting it with eyeshadow doesn't help. :(



I dabbed a bit of the Inglot pigemtn over Tako and Midori, which blended them more together, but also gives this great green shift of colour.


Yeah, I probably should have used fake lashes, look at those tiny things :(


I absolutely love how white my eyes look! You can already see the waterline dissapearing at the end.


I love these colours together and I'm definately going to wear this more often. Might try something like it with purple aswell :)

4th Anniversary Dinner at the Hielander

On the 24th of July, it was our 4th wedding anniversary. To celebrate, we went to the Scottish reataurant, the Hielander, where Sid wayyy back, proposed to me :)

 It's not the cheapest restaurant out there, but soooooo worth your money. We usually get a giftcard for it from our dear friends, so we onky have to pay part of our meal ;)

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hielander-Scottish-Restaurant/341774549172723
I really like the restaurants owners and the whole atmosphere. We dutchies have a word that can't really be translated, ''gezellig'' and thats exactly what it is. Cozy and fun doens't really describe it. If we were rich, we would have dinner there every day ;)
They were the very first Scottish Restaurant in the Netherlands, and specialize in classic and modern Scottish food.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hielander-Scottish-Restaurant/341774549172723

They have one of the biggest selection of Whiskies available, more then 800 scottish single malts, almost 50 Irish whiskey and roughly 100 world whiskies.
You can get a whisky-menu if you want, which means you get off-the-menu food and specially selected whisky that goes with it. My hubby especially likes these ;)


 Every time I go there, I see something new. I especially love all the little signs with scottish verbs and fun things. Like that poster on the wall : ''Warning: drinking may cause memory loss, or worse, memory loss. "
Hahahaha.
On your reservation card, there's always a 10 ct piece...it's a refund for your reservation phonecall :)


Sidney love this place so much :)
We had an extra special night, because this evening, they had live music and a special menu.
There wasn't a whiskymenu this time, but we asked for whisky to go with the dishes and ofcourse Wullie found some great ones for Sid to enjoy.

One of my favourite dishes of the Hielander: salmon. This is one of the reasons for me to eat there, and I dare to say this is the best salmon out there.


This was a different take on the fish and chips, and I really love it :)

I did something bad.....I did NOT order the Death By Chocolate like I usually do!?!?!?! But it was really warm, and I just really felt like icecream, hahaha.

 Sid's dessert, a creme brulee, icecream and probably whisky, it was alcohol anyway ;)


And when you ask for this, this is what's placed in fron of you, hahaha.

We had a great evening, and I can reqally recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Blogging and Giveaway Winner

So I've been offline for a while, because I was just too busy with other stuff. I might blog more regularly the next few weeks, or not, I'm not entirely sure yet. I've been busy with finding a job, chores around the house that have been neglected, and my hobbies, which have been neglected the most. I haven't had a real vacation in years, so I'm trying to enjoy the time off now, and make some time for myself.

That being said, I'll try to post at least some blogs every week, but I won't promise anything. ;)

And..... the giveaway winner is....





Red lipstick kind of girl

Make sure to send me your adress, so the earrings can find you ;)
