Throwback Eurovision 2015

Throwback Eurovision 2015

I think as the most of you already know I love Eurovision so much and I’m sad that I didn’t had my blog when Eurovision was on. That is why I wanted to make a blogpost about it now!

Let’s talk about the Dutch entry. My country failed to go to the final, because the dress from Trijntje was pretty weird. Her first rehearsel dress was all over the news and in the semi-final she was wearing a pretty weird jumpsuit. The song was released to early, but I really liked the song. For the first time in years I was immediatly positive about our entry. But next time better luck!

Every year I have a lot of favourite countries and I sometimes ask myself how it is possible that I get so many favourites. Especially this year was hard to make a top 10 of all my favourite songs. Today I will give you my top 5.

05. Slovenia.

Maraaya – Here For You.

Her voice is amazing and I really love the style of this song! Only their place in the Grand Final ruined their ranking. They were the first ones to perform in the Grand Final

04. Belgium.

Loïc Nottet – Rythm Inside.

This song was the best song Belgium send to Eurovision since Tom Dice in 2010. The song is in the same style as Royals by lorde, but it is really amazing. I really could have seen Belgium winning this, but he didn’t! Still Belgium did a great job!

03. Norway.

Morland & Debrah Scarlett – A Monster Like Me.

This song is so beautiful! I even got goosebumps when I listen to them. I saw them live at Eurovision In Concert (Slovenia, & my top 2 to) and it makes such a difference if you saw a song live. This song has grown on me so much!

02. Australia.

Guy Sebastian – Tonight Again.

Australia in  EUROvision. Believe me I was just as surprised as you, but just listen to this song. I really was convinced that Australia would win this, because their song has everything a modern song needs! I really love it!

01. Sweden.

Mans Zelmerlöw – Heroes.

And the winning song is Mans Zelmerlöw! Sweden always has this amazing pre-selection: Melodifestivalen. When I heard Mans was participating I was so happy. When I heard his song for the first time, he blew me away and became my number one!

What was your top 5?

I woke up around 10 o’clock. I woke later then I wanted, but I had a day off. I started my day with a shower and I used snow fairy as my showergel today. I really love this shower gel.

In the meanwhile Sammy was sleeping. He watched me the whole time, when I got back.

I bought this jacket in Milan and I really love it. I was on my way to the city, to get myself a jumper. I ended up with a jumper that I wanted, a jeans and a charging cable. I forgot to make pictures with the things I bought.

First I wasn’t driving while making this picture, but my car needed a check up. After shopping I went to the garage and my car got the winter wheels on! Because I want to be save when it is snowing and I have to work.

Sammy was once again sleeping and he is so cute when he is sleeping. He sleeps a lot like this. In the evening he gets more active.

This is my winter evening routine. I start with washing my face with the Honey I Washed The Kids from Lush. Then I remove the rest of my make up with Garnier Micellair water. Last but not least I use tea tree oil and tea trea night treatment.

I wanted to use this mask, because my skin is really dry. It didn’t end well. The second I put it on my face, my face started burning. When I put it all on my face, I wanted to wash it off so badly. I immediatly did that.

Fleece pants from Primark. I love these when I have a relax evening to keep myself warm.

I ended my night with some episodes of house season 5. I went to bed around 22.45, because I had to work early in the morning.

This was my Friday. What did you do this weekend?

I am going on vacation to ….

Hey guys,

In December I am going back to London! I’m so happy about that, because London is my favourite city in the world and my mom is going with me.

The Tower Bridge

Shopping in London is one of the things we are going to do, but there is one store I really need to visit is: Lush Oxford Street. When Lush opened at Oxford Street, I was really happy. When I went to London last year, I wanted to go to Lush, but I couldn’t find one.

Picadilly Circus

I also will do some sightseeing like Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The Tower Bridge etc.

I am going to plog while I am in London and maybe I will vlog to! London, see you soon!

Love,

Fiona

September Favourites

This year is going so fast! It is already October already, the christmas stuff are already in stores. So, let’s look what are my favourite products, book, tv show and album of this month!

Favourite Products.

DSC00605

Angels On Bare Skin: I love this cleanser for my face, I always use it when I am showering and it makes my skin so soft. It cleanse my face very good. I even like it more as Herbalism.

Fair Trade Foot Lotion: I took this big pot with my on vacation, because I knew we had to walk a lot. Every night I applied the lotion on my feet. It is a pink substance and you can smell the mint very good. It cools down my feet and when I woke up in the morning, my feet didn’t hurt that much from walking.

The Comforter Showergel: When I first smelled this showergel in the bottle, I didn’t like it very much. Until I actually tried it while showering. The smell is really heavy, but it reminds me of candy and I really like it! This is now my favourite showergel I ever tried.

S-Quito Free: This product I bought in Germany for my vacation, because I always get stung by mosquitos. The first days I was on vacation I didn’t use it and that was wrong. I got mosquitos bites everywere. So after that I used it every morning and evening. And it worked! I didn’t get stung by mosquitos until I forgot to use it.

This month I only have 2 make-up favourites, that I bought in Italy. These two make-up products are from Kiko.

Luscious Cream Lipstick 513: I was wearing this lipstick on the last evening in Italy and I really love the color of this lipstick. Also it survived dinner and some drinks. The Luscious Cream Lipsticks are really hydrating for your lips and that I really like.

Eyeshadow Brown 212: I am using this eyeshadow almost everyday and I really love the pigment of this color.

Book Of The Month.

DSC00611

Independent Study (or in dutch; De studie). This is the second book of The testing trilogy and I finished it in one day. It reads so good and the book got me since the first the page. I was still on vacation when I finished it and when I had proper wifi I orderd myself the last book, because I really want to know how the story ends!

Tv Show Of The Month. 

And my favourite tv show of this month is… Orange Is The New Black!

orange-is-the-new-black

Bring Me The Horizon – That’s The Spirit.

Since I heard Throne, I couldn’t wait for this album and now that it out it didn’t dissapoint me at all! This album is so good and ofcourse is Throne my favourite song of their album, but there are also other good songs it. One of the songs I played a lot last month was: True Friends.

Love,

Fiona

Music Of The Month: September

Music Of The Month: September

Hello,

It is time again for Music Of The Month. I listened to music more this month, because on my vacation I traveled a lot. So I listened to music more. So let’s see what kind of music I played a lot this month.

30-Music-Quotes-That-Really-Fit-Life-and-Keeps-You-In-a-Beat-17

Simple Plan – Boom.

I was really happy when I heard that Simple Plan was coming back! When the videoclip was released I played it a lot. The song is just amazing and it makes me happy!

Of Mice And Men – Never Giving Up.

An other band I got to know by a concert. Of Mice and Men was the support act of Linkin Park last year! My first impression of them was they are good but not my thing. But the more I listened to them and learned the lyrics, the more the songs grew on me and now they belong to one of my favourite bands.

Years & Years – King.

My summer 2015 song! The first time I heard this song I was like woah this song is pretty amazing. Everytime it was on the radio, the volume got up and I started singing along with it. This song boosts my mood.

All Time Low – Runaways.

A song from my All Time favourite band! Runaways, it is from the album Future Hearts. Future Hearts is my favourite album from them and I really love when All Time Low uses a live video as their official videoclip. Runaways isn’t my favourite song from the album, but this month it is the most played song. I really love the lyrics of this song.

Bring Me The Horizon – True Friends. 

Last month I had Throne in My Music Of The Month. This month it is True Friends. Their Album is out now and I really love it! True Friends is one of the songs, just like Throne. Especially one part of the lyrics: True friends stab you in the front.

Bastille – Hangin’

After I made this blogpost and scheduled it, Bastille suddenly just released the studio version of Hangin’ I really wanted to put this one on this blogpost to, because the song is really really good! I have played it non-stop since it came out. I really hope they will announce when they finally release their new album. I’m so excited!
