Tricount



Let me start this blogpost by telling you that this is NOT a sponsored blogpost. I just discovered this app trough a friend of mine who went on a city trip to New York.  Tricount is the solution to organizing group expenses and to make sure that everyone pays as much as anyone else.

Because one of my 2016 resolutions will be to keep an eye on my budget I think this app might work for me.

How does it work?
Simple, just download the free app or go to www.tricount.com

Create an acitvity, for example: City Trip + add all the participants.




Everytime you have to pay, you add all the expenses in to Tricount with the name of the person who paid for it.




At the end you'll be able to see the balance of the costs of that trip/activity and Tricount calculates who still has to pay or has to receive money in order that everyone paid the same amount.


What do you girls think of this app? Will you use it?

Affordable Scented Candles


They often say it’s the little things that make people happy. Lighting a scented candle is one of those little things that make me happy. I always have one (or more) in my house. We all know the famous brands like: Diptique, Jo Malone,… But do you also know that there are plenty of other affordable options for a scented candle? With the holidays around the corner I’ll give you a list of affordable scented candle options, maybe an idea as a Christmas present?


Will you be buying one for yourself or as a Christmas present?

DVF - Resort 2016

Last week I received the DVF Resort 2016 lookbook in my inbox, I've selected my favourite looks for you.
Ready for anything, she is timeless in a parade of mod shift dresses and perfectly of the moment in a black and white zebra trench. A doyenne of defiance, she dons a patchwork apron wrap for daytime drama and slides into printed pajamas for a black tie affair.
A rebel princess, she is a lesson in contradiction.
