December Kuidvat VIP Sale: Drugstore haul

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Hey sweeties! About a week ago, the Belgian Drugstore Kruidvat was having a VIP sale night, where they stayed open late and gave a -20% discount to everything in store! My friend Ynee got a ticket from a friend who worked there. I was so excited, this was the ideal time to pick up some thing I needed and to try out some new thing at a discount!

Deauty December Kerst Editie 2014

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Het lijkt nog maar zo kort geleden dat ik jullie de November Deauty doos toonde, maar vorige week zat de December doos al in de postbus! Deze komt voor Kerstmis, zodat je alle producten tijdens de feestdagen kan gebruiken. Ik was zo blij toen ik deze opendeed, er zitten echt enkele toffe producten in deze maand!

The December box has arrived extra early this year, so all the included products can be used during the Holidays. I was so happy when I opened this box, they have included some awesome products.

The Body Shop 24 Days of Joy Advent Calendar: Week 2

7 days closer to Christmas, 7 new products! Week 2 of december is over and that means: the second part of the Advent calendar trilogy. I got some very fun things this week, so let's get started!

The Body Shop December Sale Haul

Saturday, December 13, 2014

Hi sweeties! I'm back today with a haul from The Body Shop. TBS is currently having a 'Buy 1, get 1 -50% off' sale and I decided to get a little crazy in there! I wanted some things from the Christmas line and I wanted to try out one specific product but I walked out with a few extra goodies.

First of all, I got the Vanilla Brulee Body Polish, which smells exactly like creme brulee. Because the second product was -50% off, I decided to also pick up the Frosted Cranberry body polish. If you're looking for a good body scrub to use under the shower, these are a recommendation! I've been using the strawberry one for years now.
The Body Shop always has good deals and extra specials for their members. When you spend €35 or more, you get a free product. This time, it was the White Musk Shower gel, worth €17! I was very happy to get this for free. I wasn't that familiar with the White Musk scent, but it smells quite nice!

The Body Shop 24 Days of Joy Advent Calendar: Week 1

Sunday, December 7, 2014

This year, the countdown to Christmas eve is much more exciting, thanks to the Body Shop's Advent calendar! This is the first year the calendar is available in Belgium and I can't even begin to explain how excited I am about this. I got this way back in October and kept in my room, untouched, until last monday. I thought it would be fun to give you guys a weekly overview of the products that are hidden inside this box. So let's get started, shall we? 

The box is beautifully decorated with all sorts of Christmas drawings: presents, a snow man, santa's sleigh, a moose and lot's of snow. When you open the box, you get 24 little compartments filled with 24 products from The Body Shop. It's so much fun to wake up every morning and open up a little door, to discover what's behind it.

Deauty November Unboxing - iU Edition

Monday, December 1, 2014

Hey dames! Vorige week kreeg ik het goede nieuws dat mijn Deauty box geleverd was en ik kon niet wachten om naar huis te keren en hem te openen! Het was dan ook het eerste wat ik deed eens gearriveerd. Deauty heeft deze maand samengewerkt met iU.
iU is niet echt een apotheker, maar verkoopt duurdere merken huidsverzorging dan de drogisterij. Ze verkopen ook make-up. Ik was enorm verrast door de grote inhoud van deze box en zeer blij met de producten, zeker nu het barre winterweer is gearriveerd.

Hello, lovely ladies! My mom called me last week to inform me that my November Deauty box had arrived! I couldn't wait to see what was in it. Deauty teamed up with iU this month. iU is not really a pharmacist, but they are a bit more high end than the drugstore. They sell a lot of skin care brand and also have a few make-up brands. I was very happy to see the inside of this box, especially now that the cold weather has arrived!

Nail of the Day: Chanel 'Rouge Noir'

Monday, November 24, 2014

Hello lovely ladies! I'm back today with a review on a real cult classic... Chanel's Rouge Noir nail polish. Uma Thurman made this polish infamous when she wore it in the movie 'Pulp Fiction'. I got a coupon for -20% off everything at a parfum and makeup store and I knew I had to pick this one up. I've been looking at it for so long and I'm really into dark, vampy nails lately.

This is my first Chanel nail polish ever and I was very excited to pick it up at a discount. The bottle is so simple and sleek but looks classic and timeless. Chanel knows what they are doing.

Saturday, November 8, 2014

Hello lovely ladies! Today, I'm back with a review on a Stila Holiday Gift Set. This year, they teamed up with Baublebar and included a piece of jewelry in every set. I saw this on Asos last week and I was very interested to try it out.

ChitChat: The Autumn Tag 2014

Saturday, November 1, 2014

Put away those bikinis and take out your umbrellas! Autumn, with its rain, has arrived! October is one of my favorite months in the year, because you can really see nature and the weather changing. The leaves are falling and the colors are changing. Haaa, it makes me feel really happy. I was tagged by one of my favorite bloggers of all time, Sanja, to do this tag. Let's get on to the questions!

1. Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
I like the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, but I haven't been going a lot there! This summer, I've gotten really into Cappucinos and that what I make at home with out Dolce Gusto Coffee machine. I'm also a lot into Nesquik chocolate milk again, with my breakfast in Ghent. Njumm!

Deauty Oktober 2014 Unboxing

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Hey allemaal! Het is weer m'n favoriete dag van de maand: de Deauty-box is toegekomen! Deze maand staat alles in het teken van 'je innerlijke Beauty Queen' naar boven te laten komen. Er zit namelijk 1 product in deze doos met sterallures: 'het favoriete merk van een toekomstige koningin'. Benieuwd? Ik ook! Laten we eens kijken wat er allemaal in zit!

My favorite day of the month: the arrival of my Deauty Box! This month is all about showing your 'inner Beauty Queen'. There is one very special product in this box from 'a future Queen's favorite brand'. Curious? Me too. Let's take a look of what's inside!

Gift Idea: Nivea Gift Bag

Sunday, October 26, 2014

I know it's only the end of October, but everywhere in stores, gift sets are already being sold. I took a little trip to Kruidvat at the beginning of the week. At the register, I saw that they were selling Nivea Toiletry bags filled with goodies. I could not resist. Shall we take a look of what's inside?

It's a beautiful, large white bag with the signature Nivea blue details. This bag costs €15 and is filled with full-size Nivea products, worth all together about €25. 

Empties: Products I Used Up #6

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Time for another empties post! The bag where I keep all my empties in was starting to look a bit full again so I decided to write about them. I personally like empties posts a lot, because they're the perfect way to really review a product, since you used all of it. This might be another one of those long blogposts, so sit back, relax and enjoy reading!

1. Nivea Pearl & Beauty Deodorant: I used up two of these. I usually keep a deodorant at home and one at my studio in Ghent and this time, they ran empty at the same time. I really like this deodorant, it has a pleasant scent that lingers for quite a while and it's very gentle on the skin.
Would I repurchase? Yes!

2. Nivea Stress Protect Deodorant: This is only a travel size I picked up to keep in my handbag, but I actually really liked the scent of it! I don't know if it really reacts to stress and it certainly does not last 48 hours, but it stays on a long time and is also gentle on the skin. I might pick up the full size one of this one soon!
Would I repurchase? Yes

Hello Fall: 6 Nail Polishes To Rock This Season!

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Fall is probably my favorite season on the year: I love the colors, the falling leaves, the cozy feeling of coming home after a chilly day and of course fall nail polishes! Today, I wanted to share my nail polish picks for this season.

    Outfit of the Day: Autumn In The City

    Sunday, October 19, 2014

    The best season of the year has arrived and that means: Fall fashion! My friend Ynee suggested we would go into the city and take some photo's for an OOTD. My first reaction: Yes please! My favorite thing about Autumn are the leaves and the changing colors.

    USA Haul part 3: Jewelry and Bags

    Saturday, October 18, 2014

    Time for the last part of the USA haul trilogy. On this trip, I didn't buy any clothing, except for 2 simple basic t-shirts at Forever 21: a beige one and a dusty pink one. They're not that special so I won't show it here. This post will be mostly about jewelry and a few bags.

    The first things I'm showing you are bracelets. I got one Marc by Marc Jacobs bracelet, at Lord & Taylor. I loved how simple it looked, with the gray leather band and the little gold plate. That same day, I went into Henri Bendel, which was a 'must do' on my list of things I needed to visit. They told me everything on the upper floor was on sale. I got a Henri Bendel rose gold bracelet with purple beads, rhine stones and silver accents. I also found two Alex and Ani bracelets. They are very simple, but they look amazing paired with other bracelets. I got a silver one and a gold one. These three bracelets were all -60% off, so they were a great deal!

    Lush Haul: Halloween & Christmas Collection

    Thursday, October 16, 2014

    Hey everybody, the Lush Halloween and Christmas collections have landed in stores and I couldn't resist it, I had to buy some things! My friend Ynee got some things as well, which will be shown on her blog. She got some different things than me so if you're interested to see them, be sure to check that out as well.

    I was happy to see some old favorites back, like the Melting Snowman, Cinders and the Golden Wonder, but I was more interested in trying out some of the new things they created this year! I'll pick up the classics another time, when I'm feeling spendy again.

    ChitChat: Small Life Update

    Wednesday, October 15, 2014

    Hi, my dear readers! I know I've been away for awhile but I'm back! Ready to blog more regularly, I've been missing this so much!

    I have been 'away' from Blogger for about two weeks because I had an intership at the end of september/beginning of October. I was an intern at a retirement home, as an occupational therapist and I LOVED it. But with having to wake up at 6pm each day and having to make a lot of  assignments for school, I couldn't blog a lot. But now I'm at school again and I can blog more often. Yay, good to be back!
    Sneak peak of what you can expect in the next weeks: USA Haul part 3, NOTD's, Review, Empties, Deauty Box October and much more!

    Also, I found out I'm going to be an aunt again in February... and April! My two sisters in law are expecting a baby, yay!

    Talk to you guys soon, enjoy your week! :D

    Deauty Box September Unboxing

    Saturday, September 27, 2014

    Hey meisjes! Tijd om weer een Deauty box te delen met jullie. Deze kwam woensdag al in de bus maar ik moest netjes wachten tot vrijdag, toen ik thuiskwam na Gent, om hem te openen. Ik had al op Facebook gezien dat ze samenwerkten met Ciaté dus ik was zeer benieuwd!

    Hello ladies, time for another Deauty unboxing! I had to wait a few days, because I was coming home from Ghent. I saw on Facebook that Deauty started working together with Ciaté, so my curiosity was awakened.

    USA Haul Part 1: Bath & Bodyworks and Nail Polish

    Friday, September 26, 2014

    Hi lovely ladies! Welcome to part one of a trilogy of USA Hauling. Are you ready? Are you able to handle it all? Yes? Good. Today, we're starting with nail polish and stuff from Bath & Body Works. Next haul will be makeup (my back is soar from leaning over and taking pictures. I warn you, it will be a lot). Last but not least, part 3 will be fashion and jewelry. I did not but any clothing items but I did buy one pair of shoes, a few bags and lots of jewelry. Most of the jewelry were on sale. Stay tuned for all of that!

    After watching over a hundred hauls on youtube, I was so happy to finally walk into a B&BW and look around. Their fall line just came in and they were having a few sales. I was very overwhelmed and a bit lost, there was so much to choose from! 
    The sales: 3 little candles for $10, 2 three wick candles for 22$, buy 2 items from the permanent range, get one for free/get three items, get two for free. They also had a sale on handsoaps, but I only got two.

    Chitchat: My Trip to the United States (Long & Picture Heavy)

    Thursday, September 18, 2014

    It feels so good to sit at my computer and blog again! Hello ladies, I'm back! Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I went to Washington DC and New York in the beginning of September. I haven't been on a real vacation (longer than three days) since March last year so I was very happy and excited! 

    After a long plane ride, my parents and I arrived in Washington DC at about 3pm where took a shared taxi van to our hotel in Georgetown. We were staying in the heart of Georgetown, in a hotel near M Street. This street is a shopaholic's dream. Beautiful stores EVERYWHERE. 
     The white stone is the exact center of the capitol

    I found myself a handsome boyfriend at the capitol, I think he looks a bit like Bruce Willis.

    Deauty Augustus Anniversery Box

    Monday, August 25, 2014

    Deauty wordt twee jaar deze maand en dus is de doos van Augustus een tikkeltje specialer dan normaal. Via Facebook lieten ze weten dat er 3 fullsize producten zouden inzitten, waaronder een blush en een nagellak van T. Leclerc. Ik was zeer benieuwd naar de rest en was dan ook zeer blij toen de postbode voor de deur stond met het pakje!

    Deauty celebrates it's 2nd anniversary this month, so this box is extra special. They had shown some spoilers on Facebook and told us 3 full-size products would me included in this month's box. 2 of those are products van T. Leclerc, a blush and a nail polish.

    Nail of the Day: OPI 'You're Such A Budapest'

    Wednesday, August 20, 2014

    Hello girls! Today, I'm back today with a another NOTD. I was on a hunt for this polish. It's called 'You're such a Budapest' and it came out with the 2013 'Euro Centrale' spring collection, but I somehow missed out on this color. It's not available in Belgium anymore so I searched for it in Paris. No luck there. But I found it in Lille at the Monoprix. The security man walking around probably thought I was crazy because I almost screamed 'YES!' when I saw it.

    Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in 'Naked' and 'Rapture' Review

    Thursday, August 14, 2014

    Hello, darlings! Today I'm back with a review on two lipsticks I picked up when I was in Paris in June. These are the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks. There was a lot of commotion around these when they just came out, because UD had improved the formula and packaging and they are supposed to be quite amazing.

    I picked up two colors:

    • Naked: A nice pink nude. This is a perfect nude to me because it's one or two shades lighter than my lips. So it's not too pale and therefore it does not make me look sick.
    • Rapture: This is a berry rose color. It looks quite dark and vampy on me when I layer too much on, so I think it's best for me to use this color lightly and with caution. It's a perfect fall color though. 

    New Skin Care Love: Caudalie

    Saturday, August 9, 2014

    Hello sweethearts! Today I wanted to talk about a skin care brand that I've fallen in love with over the last two months. I've heard a lot about it's products and when I went to Paris in the beginning of June, I got to know the brand a little bit better. I have three products to talk about: the Beauty Elixer, the Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Fluid and the Vinosource Moisturizing Matifying Fluid.

    Rituals Happy Hands Hand Lotion Review

    Wednesday, August 6, 2014

    Last week, me and two friends went shopping in the fashion capital of Belgium: Antwerp. One of them wanted to visit the Rituals store. Rituals is a beautiful store with bodycare, skincare and makeup inspired by the eastern beauty and traditions. I've never really went inside the store, but I had tried a shower gel and deodorant once, that a class mate gave me for Christmas.

    I looked around and I suddenly saw a sink with soap, a hand scrub and the 'Happy Hands' hand lotion with mandarin and mint. My beloved Khiel's handcreme had gotton old and I had decided to get rid of it a few days before (it's now sitting in my 'empties' bag, waiting for a future blogpost). So I put some Rituals handcreme on. And I fell in love with it instantly!

    Kiko Haul: Summer Sale

    Monday, August 4, 2014

    Haaa, nothing better than an evening of blogging! I went to the french city of Lille a few weeks ago on a day off and I walked into Kiko, to see what they had on sale. I was very suprised and happy with what I saw and I got some beau-ti-ful things. I had a bit of time to test out a few of the products and I love them!

    Sunday Chitchat: The Dreams Tag

    Sunday, August 3, 2014

    Hello, lovely sweethearts! Long time, no writing! I'm so glad to be back home after being at the sea side for a month. I wanted to do a tag today and I recently saw a new tag on youtube: The Dream Tag. I love dreaming and I (day)dream quite a lot so I thought it would be the perfect tag for me to do.

    - What are you currently day dreaming about?
    I'm a bit of a dreamer, sometimes I even day dream too much. Currently, I'm day dreaming about going to New York. I'm going there on vacation in September and I can't wait to go! And ofcourse - this might be a bit of a cliché- I'm currently day dreaming a lot about a guy. But I think that subject of my day dreams will only remain a dream. 

    Nail of the Day: Essie 'Tart Deco'

    Wednesday, July 16, 2014

    Essie has become one of my favorite brands, as some of you may have noticed. Lately, there was a sale on Vente Exlcusive with some Essie polishes. I got a set of the 'All in one' base and topcoat, the 'Good to go' top coat and this beauty for only €23! Essie is around €11-12 in Belgium so it was a good deal.

    Catrice Absolute Eye Colour Mono Eyeshadows Review + Swatches

    Tuesday, July 15, 2014

    Hey everybody! Today, I went to the drugstore and I saw they were having a sale on Catrice single eyeshadows. They were 2 voor €5. I never got any single eyeshadows by Catrice but I saw some really nice colors. So I picked up 4 of them.

    Product Empties: July 2014

    Thursday, July 10, 2014

    Oh, that feeling you get when you finish up a product. I've been collecting my empties for a very long time now - So much stuff was almost empty at the same time! - and I can finally write this. It's going to be a long one, so you know what to do: get a snack and something to drink and ENJOY.

    May/June Favorites

    Monday, July 7, 2014

    Hello, sweeties! Today, I'm doing a favorites post for May AND June. I didn't do a favorites post last month because I didn't have a lot of new favorites to show you. There was only 1 product I really loved that month (more about that later). Same for June, but I was able to find some products to write this post. I just don't want to show you guys the same blush/concealer/mascara/shampoo each month. So these are the products that really stood out to me the last two months.

    Paris Haul: Beauty & Skin Care

    Monday, June 23, 2014

    Hi sweeties! Today, I'm showing you all the beauty stuff that I got in Paris. I mostly went to Sephora and I got some stuff in a Pharmacy and one thing at Monoprix. I really wanted to buy the Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette, but it was sold out everywhere. I went to three Sephoras and one girl who worked there said it was sold out in all the Sephoras in France. Too bad, but I found some other fun things.

    This will be a long blogpost, so get yourself a snack and something to drink, sit back, relax and have fun reading ;)

    The best part of the haul is that EVERYTHING was -20% at Sephora! (Also on the website)They were having some kind of June sale. 

    OOTD: Paris Day 1: White Lace

    Saturday, June 21, 2014

    Bonjour, mes chères lectrices! I got back from Paris last night and I have some blogpost lined up for you guys. Outfits of the day, a beauty haul, a fashion haul (not much, just a few things from H&M) and more of a 'follow me around' type post. I had a bit of writer's block the last couple of days, but now I have lots and lots to blog about for you guys!

    Astrid's Kitchen: Salade Liègeoise

    Tuesday, June 17, 2014

    Hello everyone! Welcome to another post about food! Today, I'm telling you guys how to make a delicious Salade Liègeoise. Yes, another salad. But hey, it's almost summer and salads taste great in the summer. This salad is slightly warm and maybe a bit more rich than the regular green salad, but it's DELICIOUS!

    What will you need for this salad? (for 4 persons)
    - Patatoes (500gr)
    - Green Beans (300gr)
    - Bacon (smoked or normal) -> You could use ham instead, to reduce the fat but the bacon is what gives this a great taste.
    - A bit of onion (or a sjalot)
    - 4 eggs
    - Salt & pepper

    To make the dressing (which is the best part ofcourse)
    - 1 tsp of mustard
    - 2 tsp of vinegar
    - 4 tsp of olive oil
    - Salt & pepper

    Additional: some parsley

    World Cup Crazy: My Summer Nail Polish 'Team'

    Thursday, June 12, 2014

    Hello lovely readers! Today, I'm back with a post about my favorite summer nail polishes. Because the Fifa World Cup starts today, I thought it would be fun to give this post a bit of a football tint. So here is my summer nail polish 'team'. I picked out 11 polishes, just like there a 11 soccer players in one team.

    Flea Market Finds

    Tuesday, June 10, 2014

    Traditionally, every second monday of June, there is a huge flea market in my home town. Everyone is aloud to set up a stand with 'old' stuff to sell and it's always a lot of fun. I love to look around at flea markets and buy some awesome stuff for a small price. Usually, I sell stuff there myself with my mom or a friend, but this year I had no time to look for things to sell. Due to weather conditions (we are heaving a lot of storms lately), a lot of people had left already when I arrived. But I found a few things that I absolutely adore!

    100 Happy Days Challenge - Week 1&2

    Friday, May 30, 2014

    Hello lovely ladies! How are you doing? Today, I'll be showing you guys some of my favorite moments of the first 14 days of the '100 Happy Days Challenge'. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check the blogpost where I explain everything here. You can also follow me on Instagram (Astriddc93) to follow my daily adventures.

    Photo's 1&2: Dinner with class mates - May 19: My classmates and I often get together to eat. We usually take away spaghetti sauce from the infamous 'Kastart', a restaurant where they have the best spaghetti in Ghent. We just cook the pasta ourself and heat up the sauce and we're good to go! These evenings are always very cosy and we talk and laugh a lot. Last time we also went to a parc in Ghent to play Jungle Speed.

    Battle Of The Mint/Blue-Green Polishes

    Wednesday, May 28, 2014

    Hey sweeties! Today I'm back with a 'battle of the mint/bleu-green polishes'. I did one like this about a year ago, with a comparison on my taupe nailpolishes and I really liked writing that post. This time, I'll compare my mint polishes. I went trough my collection and I must admit, I never realized I had so many mint greens colors. I'll tell you about the formulations, colors and which ones are my favorites.

    May Deauty Box 2014 Unboxing - Cathy Pill

    Friday, May 23, 2014

    Hey, lieve lezeressen! De dag is weer aangebroken dat de Deauty Box is toegekomen in de postbus. Ik keek enorm uit naar deze doos, Deauty had op voorhand een mail gestuurd met een kleine spoiler: Cathy Pill stelde de doos deze maand samen met al haar favoriete producten en we mochten 1 product reserveren. We kregen de keuze uit een Essie nagellak, een staaltje dagcreme of een bronzer van T. Leclerc. Ik heb voor de laatste gekozen. De rest van de inhoud bleef tot op vandaag geheim maar was zeker ook de moeite waard!

    This month, Belgian fashion designer Cathy Pill chose the products in the Deauty Box. Last week, we all receved an e-mail with the message that we could chose 1 product in our Deauty box. The rest would remain a secret untill delivered at home. We could choose between an Essie polish, a sample of day cream or a bronzing powder by T. Leclerc. I chose the last one.

    De design van de doos is gewoon prachtig! Mijn mond viel open toen ik hem zag.
    The design of the box is stunning!

    Nail of the Day: Dior 'Captain'

    Hello sweeties! I'm back today with a review on a beautiful, gorgeous nail polish shade by Dior. 'Captain' is part of the summer 2014 collection. It's a super bright red with a hint of orange, with a creamy finish. This is the first Dior polish I've ever tried and I was very impressed!

    After one coat, this polish was perfectly opaque. I added a second coat, just to make it a bit brighter. It's creamy, pigmented, glides on the nail like a dream and it dries quite quick. That's how I like my polishes! I must say, I'm in love. I love red nail polishes all year round and this is another great one. 

    What's your favorite summer polish?

    Coming up: 100 Happy Days challenge

    The Nomnomnom Tag!

    Saturday, May 10, 2014

    Hello everybody, I have such a fun, delicious tag for you guys today! It's the nomnomnom tag, a tag about food. Yes, Foooood. I love food, lots of it, so when I saw this tag.... I just knew I had to do it asap. I've seen this on a Dutch blog and I couldn't find a lot of english blogs doing this so I translated the questions. I'm getting hungry, so let's get started.

    1) What do you like what everybody else hates (and the other way around)?
    I'm a very easy person when it comes to food so I like most things. But I don't like salami at all. It's a very popular to put on bread but I just think it smells horrible. I also don't like milk, I'll only drink it when it's turned into chocolate milk ;)
    Something I like that most people I know don't like are oysters.The first time I ate one, I just swallowed it without really tasting it but I love them now. Salty and fresh. I also like nutella and peanut butter sandwiches, something that some people find strange but it's delicious!
