red, white & black

  For the last few days, we’ve been enjoying a beautiful Indian summer over here in Brussels. I have to admit that it feels great to see the sun and to be able to step outside with something lighter than a full on coat and a pair of boots. That being said, I still am pretty much overly excited about fall. It’s a beautiful time… Read more

Revlon moisture stain

Revlon moisture stain

When I came across these flashy tubes of color in CVS, they directly made their way to my basket. Revlon is one of my favorite brands and their lip offerings never disappoint. And these were no exception. The Revlon ‘moisture stains’ do exactly what they say on the tin: they leave a highly pigmented stain on your lips while keeping them moisturised. I find these… Read more

bien fait

Last year, when I was in Chicago, I felt in love with a t-shirt at Madewell that read ‘bien fait’. Sadly, they didn’t have my size anymore so I left empty handed. But the truth is that this printed top kept my mind busy for a while. So, when I was in Miami and spotted this sweatshirt version, I literally ran into the store to… Read more

The 5 minute review | Gillio planners

  I was recently introduced to Gillio, a beautiful brand of planners (amongst other leather goods) located right in the center of my home town, Brussels. I fell in love with their planners and couldn’t resist to share the love with you through a quick & chatty video. If you’re a bit of a planer fanatic, don’t forget to check out my Pinterest board as… Read more

how to deal with dark circles

The past few weeks have been jam packed on my side. I started a new job, I came back home after a long month in the country and the blog had a real facelift (I hope that you like it!). I had a hard time squeezing everything into my schedule but I finally feel like I am getting back on top of things. But all… Read more

Rimmel giveaway

It’s no secret that Rimmel is one of my favorite makeup brands. I am obsessed with their ‘lasting finish lipsticks’ and I own my fair share of their ’60 seconds nail polish’ bottles. But one of my most recent discovery are these three new shades in their ‘exaggerate waterproof eye definer’ range. I usually play it pretty safe with my eye makeup: a classic black eyeliner… Read more

Nars Turkish delight

If you told me a couple of years ago that I would go back to lip glosses, I probably would have laughed. Being a (young) teenager, I was all about those super glossy & glittery lip options but the fact that I always ended up with hair stuck on my lips made me switch to tinted lip balms. Surprisingly enough, I think that half of… Read more

a little update

If you guys don’t follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might as well have thought that I have disappeared from the surface of earth. Truth is that I had loads of posts scheduled for you before I left for Florida, but for some reason they didn’t go online as planned. Sorry about that. I came back home from Florida on Tuesday morning before flying… Read more

the lip products addict tag

I have to confess that I am quite a lip products junkie (well, this isn’t really a secret, is it?). I love a good lipgloss and I am always on the hunt for a new peachy pink lipstick. Truth is that my lip drawer is huge and packed with goodness of all shades of red, coral and pink. So when I came across a tag… Read more

the best of face masks

When it comes to skincare, face masks are where it’s at. I love the idea that I can target a specific issue of my skin with a mask that will work within minutes. In case you’re looking for some new options, you’ve come to the right place. First off, we have the Sampar ‘so much to dew midnight mask’. This overnight mask is the perfect… Read more
