Nail of the Day: Floral Spring

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Hey ladies! Yesterday night, I went to one of my best friend's house to hang out and watch friends while eating pancakes. She had a beautiful nail design on her nails and I asked her to do the same on mine. It's mint green (my favorite nail polish color) with white flowers. Perfect for spring and summer! I can't stop looking at my nails!

Deauty Box April 2014

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Hello ladies!
Today's post is going to be a little bit different. It's going to be in Dutch, because I'm showing a Belgian monthly subscription box, called 'Deauty'. Every month, a box filled with 4 or 6 beauty goodies is delivered to your house. The perfect way to discover new brands and products.

Wat is 'Deauty?'
Deauty is een maandelijkse doos gevuld met beauty goodies, die je thuis opgestuurd krijgt. Hun slogan is: 'Discover your beauty, that's our duty'. De samenstelling van de doos is elke maand een verrassing en blijft geheim tot de doos bij je thuis geleverd wordt. Er zitten telkens 4 à 6 producten in, van make-up tot verzorgingsproducten, zodat je verschillende nieuwe merken en producten kan ontdekken. Je kan een maandelijks abonnement nemen of meteen kiezen voor een 3-, 6- of 12 maandelijks abonnement. Hierbij betaal je op voorhand de volledige prijs en krijg je maandelijks de doos toegestuurd.

Hi sweeties! Today I'm showing you the two jumbo eye pencils from the Essence limited edition Cookies & Cream collection. I already showed you a nail polish from this collection, but I also picked up the two jumbo eyepencils. I liked these more than the regular eyeshadows.

Happy Easter everybody! I hope you are all having an amazing sunday and are spending time with your family. I'm going to visit my grandmother today, with my brothers and their girlfriends and after that, we're going to have dinner at our house. I chose a casual outfit today, because we're just hanging out with family. 

Nail of the Day: Essence 'Macaron, C'est Bon!'

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Hi everyone! I'm back today with another NOTD. This is 'Macaron, C'est Bon!' from the Essence Cookies & Cream collection, which is now available at Kruidvat (or your local drugstore). The collection has 4 nail polishes, but this is the only one I picked up.

MUA Mosaic Blush in 'English Rose' Review

MUA (Make Up Academy) has officially arrived in Belgium and the Netherlands. The complete range is now available at Kruidvat. A few days ago, I went to Kruidvat and when I saw the chelfs, I almost screamed. I looked at the products but I didn't feel the need to pick anything up. I think most of the eyeshadow palettes were sold out because there were a few types left. But then I saw the Mosaic Blush in 'English Rose'.

MUA is a British makeup brand that is very affordable. It had beautiful eyeshadow palettes (a few of which are exact dupes for the UD Naked palettes), lipsticks, blushes, mascaras, nail polishes... I suggest you look up product reviews before you pick up something because some products are better and more pigmented than others.

Hair Care Haul: Garnier, Dove and Pantene

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Hey girls! I went to Kruidvat today because I needed a new pack of cotton pads to remove my makeup. But OFCOURSE, when you go to kruidvat, you can't leave without buying other stuff. A few brands had new launches of hair care products and I decided to try some things out. I got a conditioner, a serum and a mask.

When it comes to hair, I am really bad at taking care of it. It has gotten better, I sometimes put oil in it or put a hair mask on, but overall... I could do a better job. My hair dresser usually gives me a speech about how to take better care of my hair and I've decided to really do it this time because it's very dry and I have so many split ends.

M.A.C. 'Golden Hours' Mineralize Eyeshadow Review + Swatches

Monday, April 14, 2014

Hello sweeties! How are you today on this sunny monday? I'm back today with a review on the M.A.C. eyeshadow in 'Golden Hours'. I got this along with the 'Stereo Rose' Mineralize Skinfinish. It's part of the Fantasy of Flowers collection for spring. I looked at it in the store and the colors were right up my alley, so I decided to pick it up.

If you are wondering about the delicious Easter eggs lying next to the eyeshadow... Those were happily eaten by me (a)

Personal: Starting A Diary

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Hey everyone! I'm here today with a short blogpost about something new I'm trying out, starting from today. I went to Hema last week and I found a very cute notebook. The words on the front of it made me buy it immediately and I'm very excited to do this!

'Make a note a day, every day. Write down an idea, a quote. Something to remember. And soon this will be your favorite book'

I want to remember more fun things of my life and that's why I decided to start writing some things down. I'll try to do this every day, to make it like a diary, but there might be days that I down write in it. I'll see how it goes.

Ofcourse, because a diary is very personal, I won't show you the things I write in here. But I will show you my first page. I decorated it a bit with some Washi tape (also from Hema) and I wrote down my name and favorite quote.

'Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day'
I really believe in this quote. There IS something good in every day, even if it is something very small like a compliment from someone or a hello from a stranger. Sometimes we forget about these little things and that's why I want to start writing in here. To remember good things. If I ever feel down in the future, I can read in here and maybe it will make me feel better again :)

Do you own a diary?
