BREAKING NEWS

My most used Apps for blogging on the Ipad

I wanted to do a small post showing you where I work from every day.


I work for a Japanese company in Rotterdam as an IT Administrator meaning that I support people from the same office spread over the world
With their computer problems such as… I can’t print anymore .. I forgot my password .. Why is my screen black ?

You know .. those kind of things. But still working in the IT comes in handy because we always have new cool gadgets, and I always spend a lot of
Time on the web, which allows me to update my blog as much as I want.

I thought let me just share my essential things I use daily in life and my essential apps for blogging J




Headphones by Beats:

I really love these headphones, when I have these on I’m completely shut down from the world around me, so when I’m listening my tunes
I can get all the inspiration I need.

Ipad 3:

Well this baby was something I just got to  have when it came out.
I use to have an Ipad 1 but I tossed it to my boyfriend as soon as I had this one.
I really use my Ipad for 90% of the day there is always something I need to check or a cool app that I want, but also
When it comes to checking my blog and editing posts, so I want to show my top apps I’ m using at the moment:

Blogpress:



This app is my most used app when it comes to posting.
Blogpress is easy to use show your unpblished posts and your published ones.
Also the adding of images from your galary is very easy to do.

Down side:
I have noticed that when I save a post and later want to read it again before I put it online , the page
Is covered with HTML tags, which isn’t a problem for me to read but it looks really messy and most of time I then switch back to my good old pc to see where I placed my text and edit it.

Blogpress is available in the app store for $4,99 dollars



Blogsy:



This app came out promising in the app store but also reading reviews from other people.
Personally I prefer working with Blogpress but Blogsy is much more advanced.
With Blogsy it  is possible to place videos straight on Youtube or dragging your videos to your post.

Also an advantage is that Blogsy supports almost all blogging platforms such as Wordpress, Joomla etc.
That is good for me because I could also update my web site.

When it comes to adding images it gets a little bit more difficult because you need to create an picassa account to drag your photo’s in and then you
Can place them in your post, which is fine as long as you work on a Wi-Fi connection.

Overal Blogsy is fine for editing text and editing your overall posts because it has spellcheck options and when for example
You want to place text next to an image you can click an option to place your text there and Blogsy will automatically convert your text HTML ready for your blog
So it won’t look messy with a lot of spaces and stuff.

Blogsy is available in the app store for $4,99 dollars

Last but not least comes Blogger.

Yes well I used blogger in the beginning but figured out quit soon that I missed some features.
The same with Blogger when you open a saved post you see al lot of HTML codes making it difficult to find your text back.
I do find Blogger synching really fast, because when I edit something on my pc it directly shows the correct post in the app.

Blogger comes free  in the app store.


Another few apps that I use are.

Imovie:

This app I use to create intro movies for my video posts and where I make all the effects.
This app is extremely easy to use and is able to post your videos straight on your Youtube channel ready to watch !

This app is available in the app store for $ 4,99

·         I somethimes also use Iphoto for $ 4,99 to edit my pictures a bit.



Instagram:

Wow I’ve really become an Instagram fan !
This app not only has amazing filters to spice up your pictures but it also posts your pictures straight on their channel for others to see and comment.
But I also like to just use the filter and place them on my blog after.
You can tag your pictures with any word related to your shot which will make it easier for others to find and see your uploaded  picture.

Well that’s about.. What ? of course I have more apps but all in time because I use my apps for a lot of different things so I will share more of my apps in another subject.

For now I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this and if you have any comments or apps that should be listed as well let me know J

Love,

J

My Webshop Update




Today I'm working on my web shop a fixed a few months ago.

I really wanted a wish list because that way it is possible to keep the items people see in my store and save them for later.

I haven' t shared the fact that I have a  web store before because I didn't want to make  a lot of commercial on my blog about it, because the blogging is new to me and you I didn't wanna bother anyone with info like BUY THIS NOW and AMAZING DISCOUNT !


So I thought I' d just keep it simple and put my site in collage for you to see.
the name of my shop is called Sjoeshop.


I founded this web store because due to my LARGE feet I can never find shoes that really fit the trend of the moment so I thought why not make a store for all the ladies having the same problem.


So I traveled to the states many times to visit company' s and factory's with a good result ! :)


My shop is doing better then ever and I started selling the normal sizes as well so if you see something you like let me know.


Sooo where was I.. YES  after my Isabel post I was already looking on finding new products for my shop that matched her style.

So I finally found a shoe that I think matches the Willow Sneakers of Isabel perfectly !


Before I will place these baby's on my website for sale I thought why not share it with you first ! :)


I' m planning to put these online as soon as possible but I would really appreciate if you would tell me what you think about them :)



Isabel Marant Spring Collection 2012

I love Isabel Marant clothing collection for this spring.
Even though today' s weather is awful I'm still in the mood for light colors.
Isabel's collection is full of draping fabrics and nice ocean blue colors that she mixes perfectly with bright colors such as orange.
I love the draping fabric especially when it's  a little cooler later in the day with a draping dress dancing around you in a little summer breeze.
And the bright colors such as Orange and Yellow are beautifully combined together,
With our EK football game coming up I was looking for something to combine the color orange with instead of those orange unfashionable shirts.
try to mix the Orange with Navy blue to get the same effect of the jacket !
Love this jacket so much it also gives me new inspiration for my EK outfit !
Try to combine your orange and navy clothing and let me know what you have made !
I really need some tips to make a cute summer look for the game !
This sweater is again an absolute must have for the colder days.
I like the print as well and would look good under a bright yellow skinny !
I really love big over-sized vests knowing the fact that I'm always cold this is an amazing one,
I also the fringe- like details on the bottom.
I Love this all black look with a beaded Gilet to spice things a bit.
Okay ladies the dip dyed look has made a total come back !
A few years ago I did this too and thought I would never do it again but looking at this beautiful dress
makes me wanna go do some shopping for.. Thats rights folks a DIY !!

So keep checking my blog for this upcoming video here or on youtube


Hope you enjoyed this post and please feel free to give any tips/comments on this topic !

Love,
J  


NL
Oke dames de gebleekte look is dit jaar totaal terug gekomen!

Dus hou mijn blog in de gaten voor deze aankomende video hier of op youtube!
Ik hoop dat je genoten hebt van deze post.
Aarzel niet om eventuele tips / opmerkingen over dit onderwerp te geven!

Weekend Lookbook on Youtube

Just to also share my first Lookbook video with you !!
It's a short video showing you my weekend outfits.

I make all my videos and photos with my Ipad3 but still need to figure out how to upload my HD movie to YouTube instead of it showing so blurry once uploaded !

More to come so stay tuned :)

Love,

Little Lush Haul !

Little Lush Haul


Hi every one today I want to do little Lush haul
Because I was in the city a few days ago and I wallked by the store which is not a problem but the heavenly scent that came from the store that drew me in.


There was a sort of game going on outside where you had to throw something on the window and the winner would get to soak their hands in a pink porrage -looking liquid,
But I thought since I was already inside I might as well just buy something.

I walked around for a few minutes smelling the soaps, reading the ingredients of the
Products, untill I found my picks !

Lush tea tree water:



.
* Do you see the sticker with a man on it ?
That Ben.. He is the one that created my toner on the 8th of May :)



this spray is good from normal up to greasy skin,and contains oils that have a disinfection effect.
Lush also added all the essentials oils to give you that perfectly clean and refreshed skin.

This spray can be used after cleaning your face from make up or just to refresh your face on hot days :)

Oh and just one more tip from Lush:

When keeping the toner in the frige it will give an even more cooling effect when spraying
This in your face.

Late Lip Tint:



I bought this lip balm for my mum because When I try something new
I always buy something else for her to try from that product line as well,So this lipbalm is called Late Lip tint and has a light coffiebean and vanilla scent, it also has a gorgeous bronzing color
which will look the best on dark skin !

Now that I've seen how it looks, I will get one of my own and show you this in a new video !

Review Dutch Glossybox of May :)

Because this month's Glossybox is all about afforable favourites, I really looked forward to show the wonderful items in the box:





Zoeva graphic eye shadow pencil:
This pencil is amazing everyone got a different color such as green purple, etc
But I was so happy to get the color Funky Soul which is a beautifull golden color with glitters.

I tried this out and I noticed that the tecture of the pencil is a bit jelly, which is good because when applying this under your eyes,the gold is extra visible but also makes it easier to slide from one side to another.

I will definitely buy this product in full size and experiment with other colors , the one I will place on my wishlist would be the color Blue!
I hope it is also as shiny as the golden one so I can create an aqua effect.


Glis Kur Ultimate repair mouse: this mouse brings you instant volume  !
I tried this on my hair and it worked like a charm.


Garnier BB cream:

Yes unfortunatley the BB cream does not come in my skin tone so therefore I wasn't able to test this, but what I do know is that is this one the products everybody was exited about.
This cream is a primer, concealer and foundation in one !
So this will be a perfect gift to my friend :)

If they would have it for my skin tone it would be perfect !

dr Van Der Hoog purity cleaning wipes:
This is one of the products I really, really needed !

Like I explained in my video I'm really into wipes instead of using cottons
to clean your face.

So I tried these out yesterday evening after a hot day and i noticed that the wipes are
really wet, which I think is a big chance compaired to the wipes I normally use, but my face is also much softer.
So I think I will give these another GO after I run out!

No Ad aloe after sun: this was actually an original size sample but..
Again I don't know if it is like a protection cream or really like a factor something.. ;)
But what I do know is that it smells lovely ! It's a strong scent of coconut, and even though I might not need sun protection that eassily I will put it on anyway because  smells so good !

I must say that I tried a little on my arms and they felt pretty nice so definitely try this tube !








Check out my video to see the products a bit better, and feel free to leave a comment to help my improve myself :)


Love,


My for Friday must haves !





Oh my gosh ! I’ve been so hooked up on Instagram lately it’s crazy !

I mean since last Thursday I’ve been on Instagram until late in the evening, liking cool pictures, uploading my own, but also
Answering comments back which is nice though because other people do like the picture but all of those things give me less time to work on my posts !
But that doesn’t’ t mean that I did not come up with plenty of new ideas that I want to share with you.

Since It’s already Wednesday , I want to share with you my Go Get It ! list for Friday !

You know… I always make wish lists but I stopped at page 5 because it didn’t stop ! I think it’s really because I read blogs every day.
You always see something new so, I decided to make smaller lists like which I will  be posting from time to time J

And before I forget hihi be sure to check my Instagram profile “thefashionmilkshake” from time to time!




Aztec top by New Look:

I must say that lately I seem to have created a new passion for prints
Especially Aztec prints.
This summer will be all about Aztec prints for me.

This top will go perfectly with New York-ish always wearing black style.

Cross earrings from Fashionology:

Gosh I wanted those for so long, I really like that rock chic look and
if you're a real rock chick you gotta have those earrings !

Fashionology is definitely one of my favorite web store for cool jewelry
When I don't pick out something of my own webs store so be sure to check them out here

Sporty wedge sneakers from Topshop:

I don't think I need to tell you how much they look like
The wedge sneaks from Isabele Marant, but I think I can say that this
Looks a lot like it and if you don't have the money to buy Isabel's you should definitely go for these !

These shoes have everything I want, a heel because even though I'm such a geek I do love a good heel from time to time.
And second the sneaker look! I always wear sneakers because I'm so tall it's crazy so to have the heel and the sneaker?! Is a gift from the top shop heaven.

Cross bracelet from Fashionology:

I’ m also a sucker for statement pieces and just things that stand out even if I’m wearing something simple.
This bracelet matches my style perfectly I can wear this with jeggins and a simple top, but also for work wearing a simple little black dress.

Dip Dye Pink & White blazer from New Look:

A few years back it was bleaching which I didn’t really like but the two toned dip dyed trend is something I really love.
It  also reminds me of the tunic by H&M from the Fashion Against Aids collection from my previous post.
The white and pink are so pretty when floating into each other, again if you always wear black or blue it’s a good blazer to give
You that extra pop of color in your day.
 
Dip Dye White & Blue shirt from Topshop:

When I think of summer I also think of Aqua.. Yes water !

I really love the ocean and water prints I see lately which is also a good print to combine with black !
This shirt from Topshop is so pretty that it is a absolute must have for my summer wardrobe.

Denim shorts from New Look:

These are just so cool !
I love the little studs it has but to be honest I’m not a big fan of shorts but I would love to wear these so here I am showing you these nice Rock-ish shorts
From New Look which I would wear with that cute dip dye shirt !

TOP 3 Afternoon Tea cafe's in Rotterdam


So today I am planning a few things for my mum.
She wants to start a small business where she can bake away and prepare Afternoon Tea's.
This idea popped our minds because we both love cooking and baking.
So she asked me to build a website where people can order this nice treats.
We already made some pictures but I still need a little more inspiration before I can start.

I've been to a lot of restaurants and hotels in Rotterdam that offer Afternoon Tea's but I must say that 
there's no best place like The Hilton Hotel, there everything was arranged taking your jackets a nice glass of champagne and of course a nice view on one of our famous streets the Coolsingel.
Other good places are:

1. Hilton Hotel --- For now the best good snacks as well ass after the full Afternoon Tea.

2. Ten to Three Bakery --- Cute shop as well really something you should in the city centre.

3. Lof der Zoetheid --- This is a lunchroom of 2 very creative woman located in the North of Rotterdam.
    
 



One more thing.. If you don't get scones then it's not an Afternoon Tea !
I love scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, I think it's an absolute must in a high of afternoon tea.


Feel free to share your thoughts about recipes and all about this topic :)

Jumpstart

Today I'm working on a lot of things even though it's mothers day, I still have a lot of things that I want to begin with for starters, today I created a Youtube profile to post my videos on.
I already posted my first video here so be sure to check it out from time to time.

I also started on Instagram love that app ! Especially the "Toaster" filter.


What to Wear Where... Festival









Today I'm at work doing a little e- shopping on H&M and found some pieces that I really love such as the H&M Fashion Against Aids collection.

These days I’m really in to the festival style meaning long tunics that dance in the wind, a cool floppy hat and. A lot of bracelets !

I like to always wear at least one statement piece and choose for the Snake Bite Ring.
I found mine on Ebay but there should be plenty of stores still selling this baby !

After seeing so much blogs with the sort I can fairly say that I am not a short girl so I always replace the shorts with jeggings. I must say jeggings are my new pants this year they fit well and there 's no oh which pants no it's either the black or blue one my boyfriend now says it's your day.

First post..Again....

First Post

Hello all !

It has been ridicilously long since I've posted.
Part or this was my new job, and also a little self exploring.

Today I had a open minded training and with a new look on life and fashion I want to start a new blog but this time do it right !!

I am so use to starting things I love to do but never really finish anything.
Which is so strange because for other less important things I go all out !

But there are so many things that I daily see daily,and want to share with you.
So I hope you will enjoy my blog and always feel free to send me and email if you have any questions :)
