What's in my bag update

English - Nederlands 

Today an updated version from my purse. 
Everybody loves to know what people carry around in there purse and since I ha
ve a new one, I thought I might do an updated version of 'what's in my purse'. 
Normally i'm an over packer but  with this purse it's not that easy. It looks pretty big on photo but in real life it is pretty small. 
I'm being forced to take less with me, which my shoulder is very happy with.

My favorite bracelets

English - Nederlands

Toda y a little bit of fashion! 

I'm going to share my top 3 favorite bracelets with you. Unlike the big statement necklaces, I like really simple bracelets that are easy to combine. 
Two of the bracelets are from Primark and are really cheap(Love thatstore). 
And one is from Bijoux Brigit which has really pretty jewellery. 

What I got for Christmas

English - Nederlands 

This blog in not about bragging what I got. 
I'm very happy with everything and i'm a very lucky person I can get all these presents, I know that. 
I do this blog because I know other bloggers like to see this type of blogs around Christmas and I like to read them to. I'm sharing everything I got except money or how much is on the giftcards. I think that's a bit to much to share. 
I also love to watch 'What I got for Christmas'-video's on youtube from: beyondbeautystar, Macbarbie07, Lilly pebbles ... 
I hope everyone has had a great Christmas and had lovely presents!

Sleek - Flushed

English - Nederlands

I love blushes. 
They can give your face a healthy blush after a layer of foundation. 
In one of my favorite posts I talked about the amazing quality of the Sleek eyeshadow palettes, but I didn't know if the blushes were just as good. 
Let me just say that the quality is just as amazing ! It's even so pigmented that you only need a tiny bit to create that lovely blush on your cheeks.  
I also love that the packaging looks very chic and elegant so you really can't tell it's from the drugstore. Such a lovely packaging for so little money... I'm a big fan. 
I really want a lot more blushes from this brand but unfortunately you can only buy them in England. 
Well... online it is!  
You only pay €5,95 for this beautiful fall and wintercolor !

Rimmel match perfection

English - Nederlands 

A new foundation is what I have in store for you! 
My previous one from BE cosmetics was unfortunately empty so I started looking for a new one to try out. I am probably going to repurchase the one from BE cosmetics but I can't review the same foundation all the time, right? 
I wrote a very positive review about the BE foundation, and this is still my all time favorite so I was pretty curious to try out a new one. 
This Rimmel one has a pretty packaging. Very sleek, and sturdy. The packaging is made out of glaze so you do have to be careful not to drop it. Also a huge  plus: the pump works better then the one from BE cosmetics. 
I do have to say that I was a bit disappointed about the covering but it does feel really soft on the skin. 
The covering isn't the worst problem since you can always use concealer. The foundation brightens up the skin very beautiful and matches my skintone really well. I do have to say that the foundation looks very shiny at first but that goes away after a few minutes. 
If I have to give this product points, it would get a 8/10 which isn't bad for a €12.99 foundation!

Sweater weather tag

English - Nederlands

Today I have a fun tag ready ! The sweater weather tag ! 

1. Favorite candle scent?

I really like vanilla scented candles. I'm a person who does not want to spent a lot of money
on a candle so I buy mine in Ikea or Action. 

2. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
I prefer hot chocolate but since I can't drink a lot of milk, I think I would pick coffee

Elf posh

English - Nederlands 

Today another lipstick from Elfcosmetics.  
This color is called Posh. I'm pretty picky when it comes to choosing a dark lipstick, so I was pretty excited to see if this one could fill up my expectations. 
Let's start of with the packaging. Well it just the same as the previous one I reviewd. Pretty difficult to get the lipstick up and down, but other than that it's fine. Nothing special. 
About the lipstick it self ? It smells so good! I just can't stop smelling this lipstick. 
Of course it's not about the smell but about the pigmentation. It's so pigmented! I was just blown away about the color payoff, especially for that price ! 
It's also very moisturizing and soft for the lips. 
I'm deffinatly a fan of this color since it is perfect for fall!

Favorites of November


November went by way to fast if you ask me. 
I'm now studying for my exams and still have two more to go... 
I have to say that being a blogger isn't very helpfull for my exams since I'm constantly searching for ideas and other blogs. I'm a very distracted person so  this doesn't help at all. 
Luckily i'm almost finished so I can concentrate on my blog instead.

Sac d'Anvers - New bag

English - Nederlands

A month ago on Saturday 12th November i bought this amazing bag.
A lot of people think bloggers are constantly buying make-up, clothes, accessory but I have to disappoint you guys. I don't go shopping very often, mostly when I really need something. 
But this bag I bought was a little gift to myself. I had this  coupon laying at home and it was going to expire beginning December so I had to buy something. 
Unfortunately i'm very picky when it comes to clothing and accessory so I visited the shop multiple times, yet I couldn't find something that I really liked. 
This bag wasn't love at first sight but now that I have this bag over a month I love it so much!

Elf classy

English -  Nederlands

This beautiful lipstick I wanted to review for a while now so today I finally got to do it! 
When I  ordered some elfproducts, I ordered this beautiful lipstick since I have an addiction... 
I did not had high expectations since this product only cost €1,00 and yet I felt a slight disappointment when I tried to open the lipstick. The lipstick shade is really beautiful and perfect for spring and summer but the packaging is a bit stiff, which makes it difficult to get the lipstick up and down. 
Now about the lipsticks: I love this one!  
Such a beautiful color and it feels so soft on my lips, almost like a lip balm. 
Since this product was so cheap I did not expect a great pigmentation but this just blew me away! The color is bright pink after just 1 layer! The color is called Classy which suits his lipstick pretty well. 
And not only is the pigmentation amazing, the lipsticks smell really really well! 
I'm so happy I ordered them and tho the packaging isn't the best, I really don't mind.

Let's contour

English - Nederlands

Today I have a product for you guys, which I never used before. 
It's the ELF contouring and blush kit. Everybody knows what blush is and how to use it, but I never tried contouring. 
Let me just say that I found it very difficult.  
Elf gives you two options: the cream contouring kit or the pouder contouring kit. I choosed  the cream version since I thought this would look more natural. 
The product blends very easily which made it look like shadows and made it look natural. (This is why it was very hard to photograph). 
At first I was a bit scared that the color would be to dark for my pale skin but when you blend the product, it really looks good. 
I had very high expectations and I have to say  that elf really surprised me in a good way. 
The packaging is really simple and neutral black but I really like it. It's easy to work with and very handy for travelling since it has a mirror inside. 
I was pleasantly surprised by this product and I'm hoping that I will be better at contouring! 
This product only costed €4.00

my favorite necklaces

Today I wanted to share my top 3 favorite necklaces with you.
Lately i'm addicted to big statement necklaces, the bigger the better. 
Though I find it quit hard to find the perfect one since I do not want my necklaces to look or feel cheap. 
It has to look like a quality, maybe even expensive, necklace. 
The latest trend are those chunky chain necklaces which I really like, but I find it really hard to find a descent one. Most chain necklaces feel really plastic which is just awfull. 
As you can tell, i'm really picky when it comes to accessory. 
These 3 are the ones that really got my attention and I really love wearing them.

My new laptop

So today i'm finally writing a blog on my new laptop. 
Even though my old one still worked I did needed a new one since the old one couldn't work without it's charger. Since I have an exame on laptop in December, I needed a new one because they would not provide enough sockets for my charger.
I do have to say that i'm glad I finally have a new one since my old laptop  was already 6 years old. You could tell it was getting to old because it always had trouble finding internet so I had to wait half an hour before I could go on facebook or youtube or whatever. 
I do  want to mention I payed this laptop with my own money! I did not asked my parents for a new one. 

Fall make-up look for work

English - Nederlands

Today I have a beautiful yet simple look for the fall time for you. 
I posted this look a while ago on my dutch blog but definitely wanted to share this with my English readers as well. 
Now that I have my new laptop, i'm trying to upload all my dutch blog post on here as well even though i'm very busy! 
Now about this look: I love this for the fall and especially for work or school when I want to look descent en classy. I think that a smokey eye isn't as wearable for school or work as a dark lip for some reason.

Sleek - Storm

English - Nederlands

Storm suits this pallet so well doesn't it ? 
These colors just scream fall  to me and I love them! The colors are dark, mysterious and falll aproved. 
Personally I think this pallet is more fun to work with then the sleek 'Oh so special' due to all the fun colors. 
The pigmentation is so good, you don't need much product to create that beautiful dark look you want. 
The pallets cover is made of black hard plastick so it doens't look cheap at all. I actually think it look pretty expensive!
The only downside I can think of, is that unlike the Oh so special pallet, this one doesn't have names for the eyeshadows. I think it's always nice to read the fun names they give a color ! 
Other than that, i'm very pleased with this amazing pallet and I think I will order a few more... 
This pallet only coasts  £ 7.99 or €9.99

ELF peachy

English - Nederlands

For today I got a new blush! 
Last week I received a packaged from Elf cosmetics
For those who don't now elf cosmetics: it's an online website where the sell beautiful make-up products for a very cheap price. Elf is known for 1€ make-up ( a bit like £1,00 make-up from MUA). Now this sounds to good to be true, doesn't it ?
Luckily i'm the type of person who likes to try out things and wanted to give this brand a chance. 
I orderd this beautiful blush from  the Elf mineral collection
I have to say that I really like the packaging. It's simple, black and solid. Not bad for €1,00. 
Elf cosmetics says this blush is good for oily skin and it promises that it will absorb the extra oils so it will create a matt effect.  Well it sure keeps it's promise! My cheeks are less shiny and less greasy but, yeah there is a but, due to the beautiful little bits of gold glitter, you get a very pretty, healty flush off color. 
I went for the color 'Peachy' since I wanted something different then the pink I usually go for. 
So far this is one of my favorite blushes and it only coasts €6,00!

Glow all out

English - Nederlands

I know my english blog is a bit behind on my dutch blog, but as soon as I get my new laptop (tomorrow hopefully) I will try to blog in English more often! 

Now for today I have this beautiful product! I mean, look at this cute packaging! 
This amazing pouder from Soap and glory is supposed to give your face a beautiful healthy glow, which it does. 
I do not recommend putting this over your entire face but on your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and cupids bow to give it that little extra glow. 
Although I can't find soap and glory anywhere in Belgium, I do not regret buying this product  since it works really well. 
The shine that it gives my skin looks so healthy and natural. It was also very affordable since it only coast £11,00 or € 12,87. Not bad for this beautiful illuminator!

Tea tree - Lush

English - Nederlands

For today it's an amazing product that i'm going to review! 
Since I have a very difficult acné pro skin it's difficult to find products that actually work for me. 
I've tried so many different things like going to a dermatologist, taking pills, creams, soaps,..., everything. 
Unfortunately most things didn't last very long. They've worked for a month or two and then the bad breakouts start again. 
When reading so many great comment about Lush tea tree, the curiosity came very quickly, and I couldn't help buying it. 
Let's say I still don't regret this decision. This product is the best i've tried so far and works miracles on my annoying skin. 
Ever since I'm using this, my breakouts have been gone or at least much less then before. 
From all the products i've used this one is the best ever! 
I've bought mine in the small size (Should have bought the big one!) which coast $9.95.

Oh so special - Sleek

English - Nederlands

Today I have this beautiful palette ready for you guys.  
The name says it all  - Oh so special, perfect to describe this amazing palette.
I never tried Sleek products out before since we don't have this brand in Belgium, but when I saw it in London I knew I had to buy it. And so I did. 
Ever since London I'm the proud owner of this very lovely palette. It's easy to work with and has so many beautiful shades. The pigmentation is just wonderful and the colors are easy to blend. 
Some have glitters and some don't and the ones without the glitter tend to have a little less pigmentation than the ones with glitter. No problem for me cause I love the glittery ones the most. 
I only paid £7,99 for this amazing palette and it is totally worth every penny!

MUA Bon Bon

English - Nederlands 

On todays menu I got this beautiful blush.
I really am amazed by this gorgeous  blush because of its soft texture.
Due to this texture it’s really nice to work with and so soft to apply.
This blush doesn’t contain any glitter so you don’t look like a disco ball. Because it doesn’t contain any glitter it has a beautiful natural finish.
MUA sells a lot of different colors but the name ‘Bon Bon’ appealed to me the most. This soft pink color is perfect for my pale (white) skin which gave me a healthy blush on my cheeks.
The blushes of MUA are very cheap so I probably am going to order a few more.

Only £ 1 you pay for this beautiful blush!

Kiko eyeshadows

English - Nederlands

Today I have two new beautiful eyeshadows for you. 
I bought them on my shopping trip to Essen, where I wanted to visit the Kiko store.
These eyeshadows are super soft and don't lose a lot of pigmentation once you apply them. 
Their pigmentation is incredible  which means you don't have to apply a lot for great color payoff. 
Now I do not own any MAC eyeshadows but I think you can compare them when it comes to quality. Kiko has a big offer a lot of eyeshadows but I decided to go for just these two... which I do regret now... 
These shadows might be like the MAC, but when it comes to price I think these win! 
The Kiko eyeshadows only costs € 1,90

MUA pearl eyeshadows

English - Nederlands

London London London , God I love you so much! Especially the beauty shops are great.
They sell so many brands that are not available in Belgium (except online). I myself wanted to try the MUA eyeshadow for a while which aren’t available in Belgim, but I  don’t like to order online.
Luckily for me I went to London where I bought these two cuties. Unfortunately there were not so many cool colors left . But I can not complain! I'm very happy with these two.
For just £ 1 (€ 1.20) I must confess that the pigmentation is better than expected  The eyeshadows have a pearly finish which gives it a nice shine and they last really long on the eye without creasing. My personal favorite has to be the tan on because it is easier to pull off  throughout the day.
I advise you to go and take a look on their webshop.
Wonderful eyeshadows and lipsticks for £ 1, can’t go wrong there!

What I bought in london

English - Nederlands

Like I mentioned before I went to london so yeah I kinda let myself go...
Since I had  a lot of exams in august, I decided to reward myself for all the hard work. 
The exams cost me lots of blood, sweat and well, pimples. Luckily London was there to cheer me up!
Even though my boyfriends says i'm a doubter when it comes to shoes and clothes I did bought more than expected (except for shoes...). 
The biggest part of my money went to something I feel comfortable in: Make-up!

Kiko soft touch blush '112'

English - Nederlands 

Today a small review about the Kiko Blush.
A month ago I went to Essen, where I had to go into the Kikostore since this store isn’t in Belgium.
I love trying out new make-up brands, so why not?
I heard that kiko was amazing so i couldn’t wait to try it out. In an other review about a Kiko lipstick, I said that I really loved the quality and I even compared it to MAC.
The pigmentation from this blush is just wonderful. You really don’t need alot to get the perfect healthy blush.
I also like the packaging because it’s small, and neat and it looks more expensive than it actualy is. The only downside is that Kiko products don’t  have names unless you want to go and look it up  on there website (wich I think is ridiculous).

My color has the boring name ‘112’ and only kosts € 7,50 wich I think is a decent price for this blush!

London love at first sight - Part 2

English- Nederlands

Today I have London part two on the program.
I have to confess that I like Camden Town better than Oxford when it comes to the atmosphere .
If Camden Town had more fashionshops I think I would love it even more, but when it comes to fashion and beauty, Oxford Street wins for sure.
The shops there are amazing: Topshop, Primark, Boots, Superdruk, Harrods, Marks and Spencer,… All lovely shops where I can walk around for hours.
For my friends, it was their first time in Primark and well, I think their bank card has probably felt it!
The result:  walking around Oxford for hours with 3 gigantic bags!
I really loved Superdrug because they have make-up that we can’t get in Belgium. So yeah, I went a little crazy …

BE 'Splendor' and 'taupe'


As most of my Dutch readers know, my love for BE cosmetics is huge so therefor another review!

I love their eyeshadows because the pigmentation is amazing and the last a lond time on the eyelid.
These 2 colors I picked out are beautiful and you can wear them on a daily base because they are neutral.
Taupe is a nice dark purple/ taupy color with a soft sheen, no glitter. Splendor looks alot like the color amazed but a shade darker.
The eye shadows come in a fun, easy and packaging costs just € 9.99.

London love at first sight


As the title indicates, London was a bit like love at first sight. For me it was the first time I went so of course I was in heaven.  Luckily I had two friends who knew the road  reasonably well in London.

Our  trip began with some problems ...
Our bus left in Antwerp, but of course we couldn’t find the bus stop and it was seriously raining outside. Consequence: My hair that was perfectly staight  became a poodle haircut, my tickets were almost unreadable (fortunately still good  enough!), My friends and I almost  had icicles hanging on  our noses thanks to  the combination soakeding wet and bus air conditioning.
After a very cold bus ride, we arrived in London, we drank a hot chocolate and we cleaned ourselfs up. Our mood went upwards!
We were planning to visit Covent Garden first but unfortunately  the market weren’t opening till 11 am. We , impatient little people, then took the underground to Camden Town. Since there were more shops open, we got to meet the london cosiness.
Camden Town is very cozy, the stalls were selling so incredibly many different things that you won’t know were to look!

The next blog will be about Oxford Street!

travel mini make-upbag: London here I come !


So monday I went to london for a day of shopping. Because we were in the bus the entire night, we were travelling without make-up. In the morning I could take the time to freshen up and put on some make-up so I decided to pack a few essentials. 
Of course I didn't really use it all but i'm an overpacker even If this was the smallest make-up bag I owned. 
The bag is pretty old so it looks a bit dirty but it was the most practical !It even has it's own mirror in it !

Flormar terracotta 'Lights of flowers'


Today I'm reviewing this beauty. I mean, look at this gorgeous packaging. It looks really expensive and I love the color! Probably because purple is my favorite color, but still, I think it's unique and different. 
The packaging is very solid so you can take it around with you in your purse. 
Now about the powder itself. It looks beautiful, I didn't even wanted to touch it! But for my blog I had to. 
So far it's my favorite powder I have ever used. It's light, gives your face a nice glow, and doesn't look cakey !  The glow it gives looks so naturelle, that you look healthy, fresh and it makes you shine. 
Such a bummer you can only order online when you live in Turkey, but there are a few stores so make sure to check out if your country has one on www.flormar.com ! 
This product coast around € 15,00-20,00, which i think is pretty descent for this great powder.

M.A.C rebel review

 As you could already read in a previous blog I was very happy with my first MAC lipstick. Of course I wanted more of them, because the quality is so good. After I say many bloggers and youtubers review the lipstick 'Rebel' I was sold immediately. I looked everywhere for this lipstick, but unfortunately it was sold out everywhere. Of course I was so happy when I found this in the MAC store in Maastricht.

The lipstick looks so intimidating and dark, but once put on it’s  a nice bright dark pink color. The lipstick also has a satin finish which makes it doesn’t feels dry on the lips. The perfect color to combine with a cat eyeliner. I'm fond of it! The pigmentation is great and it also sits really long

MAC lipsticks are on the pricey side (€ 18.50), but the quality is incredible.

Nailpolish addiction?

Get ready for lots of nail polish swatches this month because 2 weeks ago I bought 10 new nail polishes! Yes you read that right, my nail polish collection is 10 pieces richer (although I have more than enough, I just really liked these).
Because there is nothing to do on a sunday, a friend and I were planning on going for a walk until I saw that there were some shops open including ‘ZEB’.

In the clothing store they sold nail polish from the brand 'Kleancolor', something I had never heard of. The action buy 5 and get 5 for free, so it was a great deal since  the nail polishes were only€ 3.50.
Now what I think of this brand? WOW
I think they're even a little better than OPI (and believe me I love OPI), but the quality of these polishes are incredible. After 1 layer I had the perfect coverage and it remained 4-5 days on my nails. I also find these have a much better price  than OPI that costs 13-14 euros!
