Going Through Mom's Makeup: Her Favorites!

Sunday, February 16, 2014

Today, I'm doing a completely different post. I'm going through my mom's makeup and I talk about her all-time beauty favorites. My mom and I have completely different makeup routines. While I love to try out new stuff and buy (let's be honest) a lot of makeup, she stays loyal to a few products she has been using for years and years. As a child, I loved going through her makeup bag and I still love to take a look of what she's using.

Skin Care is the one of the most important things for my mom. She has been using Estée Lauder products for about 20 years now, I think and she loves it. As a day creme, she uses the Revatilizing Supreme Global Anti-aging Creme. She has been using this one as long as I can remember. My mom is almost 60 so her skin needs a creme with more benefits and care. She loves this and she still looks amazing! 

Happy Valentine's Day! A Big Thank You!

Friday, February 14, 2014

Hello, my lovely readers! It's that time of year again when everywhere you go, you can feel the love in the air! All the shops are decorated with roses and red and pink and there are hearts everywhere! I personally like the idea behind Valentine's Day, but I think you should treat you're loved like that every day of every year.

This year is a single Valentine's Day for me, but I don't mind that much. I'm going to go out and drink something with a friend and just celebrate our future as crazy cat ladies together!

But, I wanted to write this blogpost to tell you guys, I love you. I really do. I started blogging in the summer of 2012, because I always wanted to try it out. It became a hobby and I was not expecting to get a lot of pageviews or followers. But one day, someone reacted on a blogpost. And then I got a follower. Suddenly, there were 4 followers. 10. 20. 35. Now, I have 57 amazingly beautiful followers and I discovered dozens of great blogs! This makes me want to continue blogging and get better at it!

Again, thank you all so much <3

If you have any requests for future blog posts, feel free to leave a message here below ;)

I hope you girls have an amazing Valentine's day!

Sunday, February 9, 2014

 Hey girls! I'm sorry for not uploading a blogpost the last week. I had a busy week and a serious lack of inspiration! Luckily, I found another very fun tag to do today! I know I've doing tags a lot, but I really like doing them. I promise the next couple of blogpost won't be any tags!

4. Where do you see yourself living when you're on your own? Now, I live in a studio in Ghent, but I go home in the weekends. I'd like to live in a city when I'm done with my studies. But when I want to start a family, a nice house in a calm neighbourhoud seems like a great place as well.
5. Where is your favorite place to travel? I like traveling trough europe. I really love Italy and Spain! Any place sunny and warm will make me happy.

In Belgium, we had a few kid shows like Samson&Gert (the adventures of a man and his cute dog), Spring ('Jump', which was about a group of friend that went to the same dancing school) and W817 ('Wait a minute', which was about a group of student living in the same house). I really liked those 4 shows as a kid! I still watch W817 when it's on tv now :p

NOTD: Essie 'Lacquered up': The Perfect Red Nail Polish

Saturday, February 1, 2014

Hey everyone! Today I'm showing you guys my favorite red nail polish ever: Essie's 'Lacquered up'. This is currently my most worn red nail color and a January favorite!

This is a bright, hot crimson red nail polish. It's a very sexy color, in my opinion. It matches anything you wear. It has a creamy, smooth formula and goes on very nice. In the photo, I'm wearing three layers. It's opaque, so one layer is enough. But I just think it looks better when you put on a few layers. And, like all Essie nail polishes, this dries very quick. I just LOVE this <3

What's your all time red nail polish?

January Favorites 2014: Beauty and more!

Hello everybody! Today I'm talking about my january favorites. It's the first month of 2014 and it has gone by so quickly... It was not a very exciting month, I had exams at school, like most of you guys had as well. So my makeup had to be quick and easy this month! I have a few favorites to show you, and a lot of them are new ones. So let's get started!

Favorite shower products?
I've been loving my Cranberry Joy Body Polish from the body shop. Their body polishes are amazing! They exfoliate the skin in a gentle way, but makes it very soft! Put your favorite body lotion on top on you'll have soft, irresistible skin.
I've also been loving the Yves Rocher Cocoa-Orange shower gel, which smells like Jaffa/Pim's Cakes. When I smelled this, I immediately went back to the store to buy another bottle.
Nivea Straight&Gloss shampoo is an all-time favorite of mine. Even when I don't include it in a favorites post, you can just be sure that is was a favorite because it's the only shampoo I use. I always go back to this one when I try out something else. It makes my hair soft and not frizzy.
