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

    Outfit of the Day: Autumn In The City

    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
