Happy birthday to the world’s funniest woman, producer, comedian, writer and kick-ass woman! Today Amy Poehler turns 43 and in honor of her birthday, I would like to share with you the 10 most amazing, funniest and inspirational quotes of Amy, because she always knows best.


2. “I’ve said this before, that, when you’re in school and you’re the class clown, men are really good at making fun at other people and women are really good at making fun of themselves.”


4.The earlier you learn that you should focus on what you have, and not obsess about what you don’t have, the happier you will be.”


6. “I’ve always dreamed of growing up to be Amy Poehler.”


8. Education is power, it changes your whole life, it can create a life for yourself. So the more educated you are, the more you learn about what you care about, you become a more caring person. And if you can speak about what you care about to a person you disagree with, without denigrating or insulting them, then you may actually be heard. And you may even change their mind, or they may change yours.”


10. Yes, I consider myself a feminist, and it informs my work only in that it’s just who I am, in the same way that I’m a woman, or I’m 5’2″ or whatever.”

Essie – ‘Smokin Hot’ Swatch & Review

Hi everyone! Today I would love to introduce you to my newest member of my Essie family: Smokin Hot! Isn’t she lovely?

I received this beauty as a b’day gift from one of my co-workers last month. Wow, this is definitely love at first sight! When it comes to nail polish, I am definitely not afraid to embrace my ‘dark side’. Don’t know about you, but I’m all about fall/ winter nail polishes. I love seeing dark colors on my fingertips, because there’ something edgy, mysterious and sexy about these Fall shades. Smokin Hot is one of those neutrals that you can almost wear with everything and anything.

Essie describes this color as a ‘stone-cold fox gray that burns hotter than any flame.’ Ohlala! Smokin Hot is definitely a deep dark gray polish, but with subtle purple undertones that makes it more warm-toned. Like many Essie’s, the coverage of this polish is pretty good. One coat is already enough, but for complete opaque coverage you need 2 coats. The otherwise is a bit more streaky, but smooth enough to work with. 

Smokin Hot is already from Essie’s 2010 Winter Collection, but you can still buy it in stores. Unavailable in your location? You can always buy it on www.essie.com.

Happy Music Monday: Dylan Gardner – ‘I Think I’m Falling For Something’

Don’t know about you, but the sun haven’t been shining a lot this week here in Holland. Summer? Well, at least not here! Outside it looks like fall, but I won’t give in. It maybe Autumn outside, but deep in my soul it’s still Summer and thanks to Dylan Gardner’s ‘I Think I’m Falling For Something’, that feeling is about to stay for awhile.

Dylan’s sound reminds me of The Beatles. His songs are poppy, with an edgy touch. More South Californian style. The type of music that you can easily fall in love with. Sunshine or not, this song will gives you summer vibes instantely!
