Beauty | The best makeup remover

I have been using for the past month what I consider to be the best makeup remover I have tried in a while. The Boscia Makeup-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil is amazing at removing makeup. One pump of this products and my makeup is gone! All you have to do is massage this product into your […]

Indian summer in Brussels

On Saturday we met up with one of my closest friends to run some errands in the centre. Well really we were meeting to have coffee but we really needed to find a costume for our pre Halloween party so in the end that is what we did. Also the weather in Brussels on Saturday […]

I was debating whether to show you another beauty pampering favourite of mine but I decided to show you the recent books and magazines I bought. Nowadays I spend the majority of my time starring at a computer screen for work, for the blog, for reading blogs and watching series… Truth be told I rarely […]

Beauty | Bobbi Brown nude on nude

I found out the other day quite to my surprise that there were Bobbi Brown stores in Brussels and decided to pay one of them a visit. Bobbi Brown believes  ” makeup is a way for a woman to look and feel like herself, only prettier and more confident.”  I bought the Nude on Nude […]

Kiehl’s midnight recovery concentrate is one of the brand’s best sellers. If you ask me it is more than justified.  Kiehl’s claims that this concentrate “works all night to replenish the skin with moisture” I must say it is true. If you are in your early twenties I do not think you need this product. […]

Day to night outfit

Yesterday, I had an event to attend in the evening but during the day I had to run some errands and was not sure I would be able to go home and change. I therefore needed to wear smartish outfit but still be appropriate for the day time. I opted for a black sweater dress […]

You have no idea how hard it was for me to keep my eyes open for these pictures. I had originally wanted to take the pictures before brunch but we were running late so we just took them afterwards hence the sleepy eyes. This outfit is a good example of the colour palette I typically […]

Now that the cooler days are quickly approaching I thought I’d share with you how I keep my skin hydrated. The Origins Drink Up overnight mask  (28 euros) is supposed to give your skin the moisture it needs for the day. The Origins Drink Up overnight mask has got Avocado and Apricot Kernel oil that deeply […]

The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour blushes ($26) have been quite the hype for many years now and as per usual I am totally late to the game. I have an excuse though as they are only available in the US. I was asked around June if I wanted something from the US and to […]

Beauty | Wedding makeup look

As you might know last month I went to my cousin’s wedding and I thought I would show you what my makeup looked like. 1. I started off with a clean and mosturized face. 2. I applied Laura Mercier radiance primer (38 euros) and then my Armani luminous silk foundation in 5.5. Together they are […]

Is it necessary to introduce the 8 hour cream? This cream was created in 1930 by Elizabeth Arden and has been a beauty favourite of a lot of beauty artists and beauty lovers since then. I mostly use it as a multi purpose dry skin saviour. I keep it at all times in bag so […]

Transitioning into Autumn

It is official Autumn has arrived to Brussels. I really like Autumn, like all the other stations it has its particularities. First of all, my birthday is in November,… Second, the light can be really beautiful in Autumn and finally because I live in “cold” country I have way more Autumn Winter clothes. However, there […]

I am a total Klorane fan I have tried many of their shampoos and apart from a few of them none have disappointed me. I have read numerous times that you should not wash your hair too often as it will make your hair greasier. But what can I say… I just can’t deal with […]

When it comes to jewelry I am quite the loyal one. My daily jewelry consist of presents that are really dear to my heart and I have trouble not wearing everyday. I even have the occasional “freak out” moment when I misplace my favourite rings and can’t find them in the next minute. Every now […]

I first heard about Maybelline Color Elixir on one of Essie Button’s videos where she raved about their formula and pigmentation.

Spoiler alert, below you will see what is inside this month’s beauty box. Over the past few years the beauty boxes have emerged and I think pretty much everybody and their dogs have tested them. You now have boxes with food, beauty and what not. Although I believe we are now passed the beauty boxes […]

My aim this year is to get rid of what I don’t need in my closet and keep the “wardrobe staples”. This has been my new year’s resolution for many years, but I am sort of a hoarder and have sentimental attachment to a lot of my belongings including clothes. However, last year I managed […]

Recipe | Cookies

Now that the weather in Brussels is quickly going back to the usual gloomy sky, I’ve found myself wanting to bake and cook a lot more again. I love chocolate chip cookies but can’t seem to like the processed ones, that always have a ton of weird ingredients and are way too sweet and greasy […]

Bonjour! I LOVE Breton stripes, marinière in French. I have for many many years, but it is nothing original when you know I’m French I guess. I have many striped tops and a few dresses, but I must say the classic to me is the Petit Bateau one. This dress is from their current collection and comes […]

Yesterday we went to Kokuban, a Japanese restaurant in a small street close to avenue Louise.
