October favorites 2013 <3

Hi everyone!

Oh my god! The months are going so quickly lately. Just two more months and we are in 2014. So this means it’s time for some monthly favorites.

First product that I liked is a haircare product. It’s the Macademia deep repair masque. I already bought it at the end of September, but because you can only use this product once a week I couldn’t tell back then if it was good or not. But now I can say that it is an awesome product! There will be coming a full review soon.
For skincare then, I really enjoy using the L’Oreal Sublim Soft eau micellaire. It is a toner and make-up remover in one. It’s ideal to use ase a toner/clarifying lotion to cleanse your skin. Or you can use it as a make-up remover. I use it as a replacement for the Bioderma eau micellaire. This product will also get a review soon.
And last I have two make-up products that I constantly use and love. One of them was in my september favorites as well. It is the Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry. It is such a nice product and color. It is great to throw on while your on the go. It’s easy to apply and it gives a nice color to your lips. The second one is also a lip product and it is a Mac lipstick in Amorous. It is the perfect fall/winter berry color! The lipstick glides on easily and is not really drying for your lips, and it is a beautiful color.

What were your favorites in October?

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone!

First of all I wanted to wish you a happy halloween! Second, I have a quick little post for halloween-inspired nails.

20131030-213354.jpg
I know it is nothing spectacular but I wanted something that you could also have on during the day. So I didn’t went to overboard and only went for a “statement” nail (my ring finger). I got inspired by a picture I found online and I wanted to try it out myself. It’s a simple black nail with some googlie eyes on it.

So here are the few simple steps to recreate this look.
1. Put on a clear basecoat
2. Put on 2 layers (or how many you like) of black nail polish
3. Take a dotting tool, dip it in your white nail polish and put 2 circles next to each other
4. Take a smaller dotting tool, dip it in your black nail polish and put a small dot in your white circle
5. Finish with a clear topcoat
And there you have some googlie eyes!

Trends fall/winter 2013

Hi everyone!

We are really getting into fall/winter now. It is getting colder and more dark outside. So time for our fall/winter outfit. Every season there are some trends, and I wanted to list a few of them. This fall/winter leather, fur, green, burgundy, tweed are some of the trends.

Leather

You can’t go without leather this winter. It doesn’t need to be a shiny piece but also a matte piece looks great! And you can go with all sorts of color, it doesn’t have to be black.

Fur

Almost every fall/winter season you can find fur in collections. And this year is no exeption. But leave the classics behind and go for a colorful piece.

Green

Colors like darker greens and hunter green are in this season. You can find a lot of pieces in the collections of different brands.

Burgundy

Burgundy is the new black! You can’t go without a burgundy item in your closet this season. Just like the green you can go with any item you want. Pants, swaeters, dresses, tops, etc. I think it also looks great in a leather skirt.

Tweed

When people say tweed, you immediatly think Chanel-jacket. Right, but this season tweed is all over the place. You can find tweed coats, skirts, pants and evens shoes! If you want, you can also go for an item in a neon color.

Other trends you can’t go wrong with are printed pants, oversized items, military items, and as always the classic black and white colors, and so on.

While writing this, I think I should look for some new pieces to complement my closet because I am missing some fall/winter trends in my closet! What trends do you like this season?

Armani Jeans store opening Antwerp

Hi everyone!
20131026-184431.jpg
Thanks to Nathalie from Curls and Bags I was able to go to the opening of the armani Jeans store in Antwerp on thursday. It was a very fun experience. We were treated with lots of food and drinks. It’s a very nice store, the outside has a more old-feeling to it, but on the inside it is modern, and I think it complements eachother well.

The store has two levels. On the ground level they sell the men’s collection, on the second level they sell their woman’s collection. You can find all things from clothes, to shoes, to accessories. When looking at the woman’s collection I noticed a lot of green and burgundy. And there was one jacket that was the eyecatcher in the store. It was a multicolored fur jacket as you can see on the photo.

Mini beauty haul

Hi everyone!

Today is time for a mini beauty haul. I needed/wanted a few things so I got them the last 2 weeks.

20131022-192542.jpg
The first item I got is the L’oreal Sublime Soft Eau Micellaire (dry or combination skin). I got this because I am running out on my Bioderma Eau Micellaire. I do like the Bioderma one, but I wanted to try out some other ones as well and the best thing is that the one from L’oreal only was around 4,50€, where the Bioderma one is around 17€. The second product I bought is from Qiriness, it is the Elixir Eclat Parfait. This product is a serum for anti-redness and anti-spots. It’s supposed to get rid of any redness and dark spots. Lately I suffer from redness on my cheeks, and I hope by using this it will calm my skin and reduce the redness. I bought this one instead of the Estee Lauder Even Skintone Illuminator. Because the Illuminator from Estee Lauder is supposed to put a little bit of glow on your skin, and I try to avoid that because I have a combination to oily skin. The next product is a lipstick from Mac and it is in the color Amorous (AB2). It is a satin finish lipstick. I was looking for a darker berry-colored lipstick and I went to Mac to look for one. I tried out a few colors, but this one looked nicest. Because my skin is somewhat lighter in the winter I didn’t want a color that was to dark. This one is just perfect. It is a nice berry color that is not to dark. The last product that I bought is the Longlasting eye pencil waterproof in Moss undercover. It is a darker metallic green color. I always use a black one, and I wanted to try out something else. Since the darker green is a fall/winter color I wanted to give that one a try. I already used the black one from Catrice and I like the product, so that is why I got their green one.
