Yes , Finally! I’m back!
Today’s wednesday 24th of April and I’m ready to pick up my blog and do the thing I like the most talking about fashion, beauty, travelling and life ! But there are going to be a few changes , it’s not Axelleeee.com anymore, from now on it will be Axelleeee.wordpress.com. Because like I said in my previous blogpost I’m going to greece and living in London isn’t that cheap for a student. Now that I gave up my domain, my e-mail changed as well and you can now reach me here : email@example.com.
Anyway , the weather has been so nice lately and I finally got the chance to wear shorts and dresses again, the only thing that’s missing is a tan but you know what they say one step at a time , and in a country like this you never know what kind of weather it will be tomorrow ! These pictures where taken last sunday after a nice picknick in hyde park.
Where are you ? Are you alright ? Are you still in London? Are you going to stop with your blog ? These are a few of the many question I got in my mailbox during the past months, and I totally understand that you giuys want an explenation. All I can say is TIME , I don’t have a lot of time, a blog is a lot of work if you wanna do it right. I’m still in London and I have only 2 months left , 2 months guys ! That’s not a lot anymore and I try to enjoy every moment that I have here m see as much as I can , BUT there is homework, essays, presentations as well. I’m not much of an organizing person and I still have to figure out how I can combine blog and school work. So I’m really sorry to my readers and companies that wanted to work with me but I was to busy but I’ll come back I promise !
Anyway a lot of you guys wanted to know what I’m doing now , like I said I’m still in London ! 3 weeks ago I had my holidays and I came back to Belgium/Netherlands and I spend a lot of time with my friends and family went to parties and enjoyde the feeling of mu own bed, but it was also nice to pack my bags and return to London. I made some really good friends here and I can’t imagine I have to say goodbye in 2 months. Anyway, the weather is finally getting better , and London is much more fun with sunglasses on and walking trough hyde park, vintage shopping at Brick lane and staring at people while drinking a cocktail in the sun. But I have more exciting news , after London I’ll be working in greece , at Kos (the island) for 2 months , my readers know that last summer I worked in Spain and now I’m moving to greece ! But I promise I wright a blogpost about that later (pinky promise !)
ofcourse , my hair changed again and I it’s black now ! I already knew how it was going to look like because I had this color before and I love it , people say I actually look my age now , Finally after 20 years on this earth !
So again sorry guys , I come back but it can take a while, I’m just enjoying my time in London now as much as I can !
Ofcourse you can still follow me on Twitter for more updates and instagram
Have to admit I never really was a museum person before I came to London, it was always my little sister that wanted to see exhibitions and I was the one that was searching for the exit sign, but the girls convinced me .. maybe because they said the museum is for free ?
Anyway , when you look on the outside it looks like a greek palace but on the inside it is so beautiful,spacious and big , they said that you have to take 3 days if you wanted to see everything and they are right ! we only saw the Egyptian and Greek history but there was so much more , and I actually liked it ! Ofcourse you can’t always be serious in a museum and after seeing many greek naked gods you end up with pictures like my last one.
But if you wanna see a museum where you can spent you entire day , give the British museum a try !
Even though I’m living in London now I just love to be a tourist, Last saturday I went to Camden Market because Lana wanted to get a tattoo and they told me that there were many tattoo shops , I had never been there before so it was overwhelming for me , so many tourist & tattoo shops but I loved it , in some way it reminded me a bit of Spain with all these people trying to sell you sunglasses or a hat, only the sun was missing. When you walk over the bridge you can see all these cabins on the water side where they’re selling crepes, pizza’s, chips and fish etc etc.. I just loved the seats ! LOOK , they’re vespa’s , well not really but you get the picture ,so creative. Later that day we went to the Dark Angel tattoo shop and Lana got the tattoo she wanted for a really long time , a little moon on her wrist. While waiting me and Jonna were lookin at the designs in the tattoo shop and secretly wanting a new tattoo as well but both of our parents would kill us if we would come home with another one , we’re such good girls haha , Anyway when you’re in London try to go to Camden Market and feel the atmosphere that is hanging there , you will love it !
This outfit is from 2 weeks ago when I still had my light red-ish hair , for the moment it is brown again. Anyway I chopped off my face in some pictures because the day before I got some bad news (life is not always easy and wonderful) and you could tell from my face that I had a awful night, but life goes on and so does my blog.
I was wearing my shorts from forever 21 , from far away you would say that their are flowers on them but they are little choco cats (childhood memories?) , On top I wore this sheer blouse from River Island that I bought years ago and still love, my bag is by Mango and it’s great for school maybe a bit too big for a small girl like me but I just like to take trash with me , last but not least my cute ballet flats are from Accessorize they hurt like hell but they’re worth it !

Like you guys know I love to change my hair , I get bored a lot and I just love to play with different hair styles and colors , since I’m not a redhead anymore I changed my hair products , If you are a redhead or you dyed your hair in a vibrant color then read this blogpost. Ofcourse when you dye your hair your hair will get damaged , I use intensive hair products but I can’t use them all the time so I found a solution for the days where my hair is just horrible and I don’t have a lot of time.
When I was walking trough boots to look for new hair products I saw these flacons that (I thought) were looking like giant tampons! Anyway they got my attention and decided to try them out , they’re by Umberto Giannini and the collection is called: Frizz!
Shampoo says: Bad hair day smoothing shampoo ,Frizz reducing formula for dry and unruly hair
Conditioner says: Make my day smoothing conditioner , De-Frizz formula for daily straightening
They’re both amazing products and I recommend these hair products if you want to wash your hair daily or more often and don’t want to use deep treatment products on a daily basis.
Hee guys I’m really busy with writing blogposts for next week , for now I collected my most lovely instagram pictures, if you’re not following me yet you should be ashamed girl :p ! My name on instagram is : AXJEM See you next time !
After years of using my wallet as a clutch I finally found the perfect clubbing bag ! It’s a simple little black bag that you can hang over your shoulder.
When I was younger (I’m still young but let’s say when I was 17) I always took too much random stuff with me -No Axelle you’re not going to use your 3D glasses on the dancefloor , and please leave your nintendo DS home ! I’m still not a pro when it comes to packing but I try and here you can see the result, if you have any tips let me know!
My travel card ! I know real London girls take the cab but I don’t have the money to take the cab everywhere , and besides that I love taking the tube!
My cards, you never know if you’re going to meet someone interesting !
My eye roller ! After a few hours I always get these “bags” under my eyes even when I’m not tired yet , I just roll this over the place where it gets ‘puffy’ and my bags and dark circles disappear !
The lipstick that I’m wearing that night for a touch up , It’s either red or nude.
My mascara , just because this one is amazing !
Ofcourse my phone is coming with me , but I dropped it on the floor and it looks horrible , also I bring money with my but that’s not picture appropriate but you get the picture right ?;)
What a busy week guys ! Last week my boyfriend came to visit me , walked for hours trough London , watched Django and ate a lovely Italian restaurant. Day after his flight got cancelled and slept at the airport, yeah bummer … Anyway the days go so fast, it’s almost February ,can you imagine that almost 1 month ago you kicked off the new year ? That also means that I have to enjoy every moment that I can. Last friday I went to pacha London the club , liked it but the music wasn’t really my thing, saturday me and my friends wanted to go to sea life but we had to wait 2 hours to get in, instead we watched street artists perform, went to our favorite mexican restaurant and went to the movies , Les miserables , good movie but after a while I got tired and then I get annoying.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and good luck next week.
What I miss at the moment is my entire make-up collection , but on the other side now I don’t have to decide which eye shadow or foundation I’m going to chose because I don’t have many options. Above you can see the basics , Essence my skin cheap but really good ! my 17 primer & concealer I’ve never heard of the brand 17 before but it’s a really good affordable brand , if you’re in the UK you have to check it out ! For foundation I have the l’Oreal true match in Vanilla , not the best foundation I ever tried but it’s okay.
What’s the easiest thing to use when you’re traveling ? An eye-shadow palette with colors that you can use during the day & night. I was obsessed with the first UD naked palette and the second is even better ! For my cheeks I use my Hema bronzer , Mac blush (LE long time ago) and catrice highlighter in fairy dust.
For the lips 1 daytime and 1 nighttime lipstick , both by catrice : My red card & nude alarm .
And we’re done ! not too much but enough for a simple look !
