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'.

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!

April Favorites 2014

Monday, May 5, 2014

April has flown by and summer is getting closer and closer. I skipped my March favorites this year because there wasn't a lot of difference with my February favorites. But in april, I discovered some new stuff (mostly hair stuff and blushes) so let's get started!

Nail of the Day: Essie Fiji

Saturday, May 3, 2014

Probably one of the most well-known Essie polishes in the beauty world. I had this for a while now and I finally decided to try it on. I saw this on Youtube and blogs so many times and I always wondered if I would like it as well. And I'll tell you now: I do!

Time for Spring: Spring has Sprung Tag!

Thursday, May 1, 2014

Hey everyone! I was watching some Youtube videos this morning and I suddenly saw the 'Spring has sprung tag'. I had never seen this before but I like these kind of seasonal tags so I decided to do it! Let's get on to the questions, shall we? 

What are some spring trends you're looking forward to the most?
I haven't really kept up with the trends this year, but I always love floral prints and pastel colors so those are the trends I look out for each year. Time to put away the boots and thick sweaters, bring out the dresses and ballet flats!
Whats your favourite spring clothing piece?
I have two! I bought two dresses at my favorite shop, Naf Naf. The first one is a turquoise dress with a floral and bird print. I saw this in the shop and I had to try it on immediately. It looks amazing on. The other one is a jeans dress with little white hearts on it. I love how these look, they scream spring to me. I love it!
