Ciao dearies,

A while ago I got in contact with Daniel Wellington, you know the brand which makes those timeless watches I always put in my wishlists? Well I finally have one! Or should I say two?!

Thanks to Daniel Wellington watches I received the Classic York Lady (the dark brown leather band with pattern) and I also received the Trinity lady nato strap! Which is perfect! Because now I can mix and match my watch with almost every outfit, just by switching the straps.

In the blogpost of today I am telling you all about my newest additions to my family of watches! I can already tell you I am in love with this watch, why? Read on and find out!

Baci,

Friday favorites – StyleTone beauty box

style tone beauty box review dutch fashion blog sarandaadriana

Ciao dearies,

When I went to the 50 Shades of Grey ladies night in Pathe last week, me and my friends discovered a new beauty box! Styletone is the former VIPbox and recently changed its name and concept. Sweet Rowan bought me one, thanks so much, so I could do a little review on my blog! Really thoughtful <3

A little bit about the box. For €12,50 you receive this month with 5(!) full size beauty products from new, or not so much known brands. This is a great and pretty cheap opportunity to discover new beauty products or perhaps even your new must have make-up product!

Curious to find out which products were in my Styletone box? Read on for the full story!

Baci,
Saranda

MAGIC bodyfashion review & surprise

magic bodyfashion bra review giveaway sarandipity fashion blog

Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago I got an email from MAGIC Bodyfashion, a company who designs and sells different shapewear items and magic lingerie. 😉 Since I have never found the right strapless/backless bra, I decided to review two different bra’s. I was excited to try these two bra’s, but meanwhile I was crossing my fingers that they would fit well and would stay in place where they belong.

Let me be honest, I am blessed with a pretty big bust and therefore I usually have some trouble finding the right bra. 

When the bra’s came in I really was surprised by the packaging, both of the bra’s come in a very cool box. On the back and sides of the box there are instructions for applying the bra’s. Besides that on the packaging you can also find information on how to clean the bra’s, what the effect of the bra’s should be and the size. 

Read on for the full review and a surprise! 😀 

Ciao!!

magic body fashion bras review wing amazing
MAGIC Bodyfashion send me two different bra’s, the wing bra (upper one) and the amazing bra (lower one). As you can see the wing bra has ‘wings’ on the side and the amazing bra is a bra with only silicone adhesive cups. 

The wing bra is a balconette-form bra and is described as: “Seamless, strapless, backless and wireless smooth molded cups to life and support the breast.” On the back of the wing bra packaging is a warning for people with skin problems or skin allergies. Oh dear, was my first reaction since my skin is very sensitive. 

The amazing bra is very simple and is describes as: “Backless, strapless and invisible. Well let’s see. 

I first tested the amazing bra. Unfortunately this bra does not come in a D cup, but I still really wanted to try since sometimes C cup does fit. 

review amazing bra backless invisible sarandipity

This is the result in a backless dress while wearing the amazing bra. As you can see it’s pretty invisible and I can wear a dress that leaves my back butt naked 😉 

My findings:
It was not that easy for me to apply the bra. I managed to apply both the cups in a way that they would not connected right. The gap between the cups also looked like it was a bit to tight for the closure. The bra fits pretty well for a C cup, but I do think a D cup would fit better for me. The adhesive material does not irritate and everything stays where it should be. I was pretty afraid the bra would easily just fall of haha, but this did not happen. With this bra you can probably wear almost anything except a dress with a very low cut decollete (or you should not care about the front closure being visible than you could even wear it that way). The bra was easy to remove but did leave my skin a bit red, which is not that strange. Cleaning this bra was very easy and was done within less than a minute. 


This bra is totally invisible
Hypoallergenic
Cup C even suitable for a small D cup
Easy removal
Easy cleaning

– 
Not as easy to apply
Not available in cup D or larger (which maybe makes sense because of the next thing)
Does not give any support
You might feel a bit uncomfortable the first time you wear it (afraid it might fall of)

Now for the wing bra. This bra does come in a D cup and promises to life and support the breast. I can’t wait to find out! 

review wing bra fashion backless support blogger saranda


This is the result in a backless dress while wearing the wing bra. As you can see it’s less invisible than the amazing bra, but I do like this side view more. 

My findings:
This bra was slightly easier to apply than the amazing bra but still it was not as easy as I hoped. I had a little bit of trouble applying the bra in a way that both sides fitted the same. 
Just as with the amazing bra I noticed a pretty big gap between my breasts. Therefore the bra needed some more firm pressing to make the bra stick good at all the points of the adhesive material. Besides this the bra fitted very well. At the beginning I was slightly worried the adhesive material would come of my skin when dressing up. Therefore I suggest you first but on as much clothes as possible before applying an adhesive bra (all of them). 
The bra is less invisible than the amazing bra but in exchange it does give my bust more support and make them look like I am wearing a normal t-shirt bra. With this bra I would not suggest to wear a total backless dress, but you can still wear one with a low back. The bra was easy to remove but again left my skin a bit red-ish and now also sticky. Cleaning this bra was a bit more work than the amazing bra, but it still was a piece of cake ;).


Comes in a D cup
Gives great support
Looks like a normal t-shirt bra
No adhesive material at nipples
Comes in different colors
Easy removal
Easy cleaning

– 
Not as easy to apply
Wings need a very firm press (else it will let loose)
Not totally invisible 
Not hypoallergenic

Conclusion: 
I really like both of the bra’s. The amazing bra for it’s total invisibility and the wing bra for it’s support. But I felt more confident wearing the wing bra, since the wings gave me a feeling of security. 

Both of the bras are available through the website of MAGIC bodyfashion. The amazing bra costs €49,99 and the wing bra costs €39,99

Now for the big surpise! I can give one of you a wing bra in C cup 🙂

Hi everyone,

You have probably all heard the news about the fashion Shazam that launched last week, called Style-Eyes. But doesn’t the concept sound familiar?? In September I wrote this article about Spot & Shop, a Dutch initiative from fashionista Nikky and Sanoma (yes the one from the magazines! ;))

Well today Spot & Shop launched their website (SpotnShop.nl) and I though it would be nice to write a short opinion piece on both concepts! Both concepts look a lot a like and I think both concepts have a lot to offer! While Style-Eyes is very digital, and probably has a computer search for matching items (They do have to do some updating; I have come across a couple of weird mistakes haha), Spot & Shop is a community where fashionista’s can help each other. So other like minded people do the searching for you! This means more work I guess, but also more accurate results based on how fashionista’s look at it. 

If you are searching for a particular item, I think Spot & Shop is the way to go! Most fashionista’s find their items within 3 hours, WOW! But I think that if you are walking in the city, while you are shopping and you see an item on an advertisement or on a celeb via Instagram, I think it’s best to use Style-Eyes. You probably won’t get a perfect match, but something that looks like it. To me personally, both concepts are useful. The Spot & Shop website for when I have more time and are looking for a particular item. And the Style-Eyes app for immediate look-a-likes!

Have you already tried one or both of the concepts?? Ciao!!

Review: Cute phonecase, Phonegeek.nl

18-10-’13

Hi guys! 


A while a go I had contact with Phonegeek.nl about a collaboration. So last week I received my new phonecase from the brand Rilakkuma, a cute case in the shape of a bear and a Rilakkuma dust cap! 

Phonegeek.nl is a webshop which focuses on trendy, stylish, unique but handy phone accessories! They sell a great variety of phone cases (from silicone, hard case, flip case or a blinged phonecase) but also accessories like dust caps, color skins and home button stickers. At phonegeek you can really customize a lot of your Apple products, your Samsung Galaxy or bling your HTC one X! 

Click on read more for the full review 🙂

So now for the case I received, which is this one by the way: 


The case was deliverd in a bubblewrap envelop and in this plastic ziplock bag, the dust cap is also in this ziplock bag.

I love the case, it is very playfull, cute and it also covers my phone really well. I actually have the feeling that my phone will be fine if it should fall (I still won’t try it out by the way haha). What I also like is that the buttons from my iPhone still function really well (due to the buttons being sort of integrated in the case). The only thing I don’t like is that if I want to switch from silence to sound on or the other way around, I need to take the case (partly) from my phone to do so. Which is a little bit annoying when you are say, at a meeting or something formal. Also my phone is HUGE now, so my phone does not fit in my pocket anymore… But those really are the only downsides of this über cute phonecase! After testing this case for a while I really think this case does what it needs to do, protect my phone, and it is cute as well. I am very happy! 



Also I received a dust cap, which i actually use just because it is so cute haha. My dust cap is matching with my case, which really makes it extra cute! What do you think of this combination?!


I went for a duo package at the Phonegeek website, check out these other cute duo packages!


If you like my case, the duo packages I showed you and / or dust cap check out some of the other cool cases Phonegeek.nl sells! Just as a nice extra I managed to get a discount code especially for my followers! Use the code Sarandipity at checking out and you receive a 10% on the whole assortment (valid untill 31-12-2013)

Let me know in a comment what you think of my cute new phonecase! 🙂
