Coffee Table Essentials | Chairish

Hi everyone,

A coffee table is something that everyone needs in their house, whether you live in a small flat, a house or a big mansion. There are so many styles of coffee tables that it could get overwhelming to find the perfect one. But, I am here today to help you a little bit.

The first thing you will need to do is decide from which (online) store you want to buy your new coffee table. I suggest the store Chairish, as they have a wide variety and there is definitely something for everyone. Have a look at their coffee tables page and I bet you will find the perfect one for you!

I also browsed a bit on their site and I found my perfect coffee table, here it is:

This is the 1960s Danish Modern Teak Coffee Table, I am a big fan of simple pieces and this table perfectly fits within my taste. I also love the colour of this wood, it would look so gorgeous in my interior.

Now, you can’t leave your new coffee table looking bare, you want to put a few beautiful items on it. Here are my suggestions, I browsed some websites and found lovely pieces for my table.

In a way, I would want to protect this beautiful table, so I would opt for some sort of tablecloth. This crochet one is gorgeous:

Next, I would put some candles on my table, as it gives a very cosy feeling. If you can, get some candles from Yankee Candle, they smell divine. Here’s my favourite scent:

Sweets, cookies or some sort of treat should always be on a coffee table. And why shouldn’t you put them on a beautiful tray. This one from Zara would contrast beautifully on the coffee table that I chose:

And last, but not least, a plant would make the whole lay-out of the coffee table complete. I think a cactus is very cute, so I would choose a little one to put on my table. You can get some from Ikea:

I hope you enjoyed this little post and got some inspiration from it for your own perfect coffee table and essentials. Do not forget to check out Chairish and have a look at their beautiful furniture.

Love,

Valeria

Valentine’s Day | ThirdLove

Valentine’s Day is getting closer. Maybe some of you have planned a romantic day with your partner or you decided that this year it is going to be a day to treat yourself. Either way, I hope you have a fun day.

Recently, I came across ThirdLove, which is a brand (and website) that sells beautiful lingerie. Have a look on the website and I am sure you will find a piece that you like, as they have something for everyone. Coming back to the topic of Valentine’s Day, whatever you plan to do, I think choosing the perfect lingerie (and outfit) can boost your confidence. The right bra can lift your outfit to a whole different level, and as ThirdLove says on their website: “The best bra is one you never think about.” And I completely agree with this statement.

Kiko Nailpolish 

Hi everyone,

Living in Spain the last 5 months has taught me a lot of things. But, what I know now is that Kiko has become one of my favourite makeup brands. Today, I want to show you a nailpolish that I recently bought and love.

 
 

This is the Kiko nail lacquer in number 47, they also have names, but it is not mentioned on the bottle.

I am absolutely in love with the formula and colour of this nailpolish. It applies so easily and dries very fast, I was pleasantly surprised! 

Also, Kiko products are very affordable, which is positive for people on a budget like me.

To buy: Kiko Stores, now reduced in price: €1,90

Love,

What I got for Christmas 2015

Hi everyone,

It has been a long time, way too long, but I have a good excuse. Since September, I have been studying in Spain, so time was very limited. However, I really wanted to start writing and blogging again. So, today I have a blog post for you where I show the presents that I got for Christmas this year. 

*This is in no way to show off or brag, I thought some people could be interested in seeing the presents that others received.*

Mug Clouds of Fashion

I had mentioned a few months ago that I really liked this mug and somehow my parents remembered. I was very happy to see this present under the tree. 

Not for sale anymore.

Makeup

While I was in Spain, the Manizer Sisters palette was in promotion in Belgium. Obviously I asked my mom to buy it for me, as they are beautiful highlighters. Basically, I already knew I was going to receive this. The Lollipos palette however, was a complete surprise. Good job, mom! 🙂

       
Buy: Di Beauty&Care, Antwerp

Necklace Guess Jewellery is a present you can’t go wrong with, in my opinion. I had never expected to receive this necklace by Guess, so I was pleasantly surprised. It also matches my watch and phone, as they are also rose gold. Bonus! 

Buy: Inno, Antwerp

Calendar

  
Every year with Christmas, my parents buy me a calendar to hang in my room. Usually they choose one from One Direction, as I am a big fan. But, this year they could not find one. So they chose the Justin Bieber calendar, mainly as a joke. Because we are all beliebers now, right?!
I also received some chocolate, but as you would have guessed, I already ate it! 🙂

I hope you like this, see you soon!

Love,

Valeria
