INSPIRATION | All black outfits spring/summer

Let's finish April with some inspiration and start May with some. The most obvious thing to do would share very colorful outfits but guess what, let's do the opposite. Let's be a bit rebellious and look at very beautiful total black outfits to wear in spring and summer. 
Prepare yourself for an overdose of inspiring looks in my favorite color! 


WORDS | I wanna wake up..

If you have read last week's words-post you know that I went on a little trip with the boyfriend. In everyday life we don't live together so we don't sleep together every night and, of course, don't wake up together. We've already spent time together for days, weeks and I have always loved waking up next to him. Last week that only got confirmed, everything is so much better then. 
What's better to start off your day than waking up to someone you love? 


LIFE | Update 'WORDS | It's just a spark'

Two and a half weeks ago I posted 'WORDS | It's just a spark' and I told you that this sentence was from a song and I kept the song a secret because I was curious if anyone would recognize it. 
People were trying to find the song in their memory and there was one real guess, that these words would be from a song from Justin Timberlake but no they aren't from JT.
Six days after the post was published an anonymous smartass 'guessed' the song right by looking it up on Google. Not really guessing but smart move I have to say!
The beautiful words are from the song Last Hope from Paramore. I really really like this song for several personal reasons, I can listen to it all day on repeat. 
You can listen to it here. Did you already know this song? 


NEW | 5 beauty products

Today I am showing you five beauty products I bought lately.
- Essie 'Sole Mate' nail polish : I was looking for a very dark red nail polish so when I saw this color while scrolling trough Instagram, I had to ask what the name was. And so I did. I asked it and bought it. It's the very first Essie nail polish I bought so I was quite curious about the quality etc. but I must say that I am pretty happy with it. A little review will follow. 
- YSL Touche Éclat color number 2 'Ivoire Lumiere' : Last week my mum came home with a surprise for me and it was this concealer from Yves Saint Laurent! Honestly, I couldn't be happier since it can do miracles but my mum and I always shared one, until now. Also very nice is that it is a gift edition so I got a little mascara as well.
- Rituals 24H Hydrating Gel Cream : A day cream that is very fresh. With the temperatures being higher it is nice to use but two months ago I wasn't too pleased with it because I found it too fresh to wear in colder temps, I liked the Rituals day cream from my mum -who has the Essential Anti-Aging Day Cream- a lot more, the texture and scent are just more 'my thing'. But for spring and summer the cream, well it's a gel actually, is perfect. 
- Hema hand- and nail cream : This hand cream is probably one of the best beauty buys ever! It is super cheap, €1.50, very nice to put on your hands and it smells so good. Once I start, I can't stop. I sometimes even use it in the middle of the night when I wake up! 
- Catrice red lipstick : Since a few weeks I am the very proud owner of my first red lipstick. Yes, you're reading it right, I didn't have a red lipstick before myself. I thought that it was about time so I bought one, a pretty cheap one, €3.99, because it is not that I am going to wear it on an everyday base. I was surprised about the quality and softness of the lipstick when I first tried on this lipstick, definitely a good buy. 
These were the beauty products I wanted to show you, if you have a question about them or you want a review from a product, let me know in the comment section :) 


WORDS | Collect moments

When I am writing this it is almost midnight and I just got home from a trip to Rotterdam, the Netherlands. 
This quote may look a bit 'weird' on a fashion blog since fashion has lots to do with things but in the end, what do you remember? Things or memories from funny, lovely, special moments?
I am not saying that you don't have to buy anything, I know that I won't leave that Chanel 2.55 in the shop if I had the money, but what I want to say is that maybe we should invest more in moments that make us happy -a citytrip, going a day somewhere, a festival, a vacation or something else that you love to do- instead of buying another pair of jeans or shoes. 
This is definitely not an attack on you because I'm guilty of buying another thing of this/that as well, it is a reminder to me, you, us. 


SHOP | Mise en Dior earrings : the real versus the deal

The double pearl earrings from Dior, called the 'Mise en Dior' earrings, are hot! Since they came out a few months ago you could spot celebs, it-girls and fashionistas wearing them. 
There are lots of DIY's over the internet but if you're not that crafty and are lusting over these beauties, don't worry because I've found some look-a-likes for you! 
While the real ones cost $290, these from the webshop Modemusthaves only cost €16,95 (about $23,49). That's what I call a pretty good deal! Don't you?

Here is the link to them : http://www.modemusthaves.com/nieuw/pearl-ear-white.html


LIFE | Instagram #9

Some weeks have past so it is time for a little Instagram update. Apart from letting my followers know that there was a new blogpost online I wasn't very active on Instagram the past two months. The main reason for this is that I've been sick a few times (migraine, stomach flu, etc). 
Besides those crappy days there were if course also nice things that happened so let's take a look at that! 
If you want to follow me, look for 'lyndesloovere' , see you on Instagram!

WORDS | I love you

If you follow me on Twitter (@lyndesloovere) or on Instagram (lyndesloovere) you may already have noticed that I am in the love mood. The reason for this is that yesterday was the fifth anniversary of my love and I! Reason enough to be completely high in the sky with my head, if you ask me. 
One of the most beautiful things you can say to someone is that you love them so this 'quote' couldn't have a better timing! (Since every week I pick out some words that have a reference to my life at the moment)
Go work on those languages and spread the love! 
Much love, xo Lyn 


FASHION | Alexander Wang x H&M

Very exciting news on this Sunday morning : Alexander Wang is the next guest designer for H&M! They revealed the news a few hours ago at the Coachella festival with 2 videos at Wang's official Instagram, go to @alexanderwangny if you want to see them. Of course they couldn't leave Twitter behind so there was a photo spread of Margareta van den Bosch (H&M's head of design) together with the designer, which you can see below. The collection will hit the stores on November 6th, I can't wait! 

PS : sorry for the absence on the blog the last week but I have been sick for about half of the week.


WORDS | It's just a spark

I created this quote 'myself'. I am writing 'myself' instead of myself because it is a sentence from a song. I made a quote of this sentence because it really means a lot to me, more explanation later. 
Anyone who has an idea or knows from which song this quote is? 
PS : I'm definitely going to reveal the song soon so keep an eye on Blonde Butterflies! I am just curious if somebody recognizes it. 


SHOP | Céline trio bag, the real versus the deal

The Céline trio bag looks like the perfect little black bag that you can carry around everywhere with you but pay around €700 for it? No thanks. 
I was browsing trough Nelly and I came across a look-a-like from this Céline bag for only €39,95. 
Big difference right?! You can find the Nelly one here. You may thank me later ;) 
Would you go for the real or for the deal? I know what I would do!


FASHION | H&M Conscious Collection 2014

In exactly one week, April 10th, the new H&M Conscious Collection will hit the stores. This eco friendly collection has so many amazing pieces this year, it's incredable. The boho-ish white lace dress is by far my favorite piece from the collection. I really really want it but it costs €180 and I don't know yet if I want to spend that much money on it. 
Besides this dress, there are lots of other gorgeous pieces. Every singly piece is amazing actually! 
I have 'second favorite' pieces -the leather crop top, the ruffle blouse and the pleated skirt- but I would probably combine them differently than represented in the lookbook. But that definitely does not take away the fact that this collection is superbe! 
At least, that is how I feel about it, how about you? Will you spurt to H&M next week?
