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 […]

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 […]

Beauty | Kiehl’s Midnight recovery concentrate review

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. […]

The Origins Drink Up overnight mask  (28 euros) is supposed to give your skin the moisture it needs for the day.

Beauty | Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour blushes review

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 | Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream

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 […]

Beauty | My favourite cleansing masks

I live in Brussels and as any city girl I need to cleanse my skin quite regularly to get rid of all the lovely dirt from the pollution, the public transportation, sweat and what not. I usually deep cleanse my skin once a week and lately I have been alternating between these two products. Aesop – […]

Chillaxing Sunday #2 | At home Manicure

I have quite sensitive skin and on my hands I often have eczema, I therefore much prefer doing my manicures at home. Sundays are usually my pampering day and this is when I take the time to do my manicure. Over the years I have tried many products but for the past few years two […]

Beauty | Autumn evening routine

Not so long ago I shared with you my summer beauty routine. Up until a week ago I was still only using the products mentioned in that post but let’s face it, Autumn has arrived and the cold months are here to stay. So I have had to switch back to my Autumn beauty routine. […]

Klorane Dry Shampoo

Beauty | Dry Shampoo

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 […]

I must say she was totally right these products are amazing. ① Captivating Carnation – ② Breathtaking Apricot – ③ Rose Redefined – ④ Celestial Coral Captivating Carnation and Rose Redefined are two pink colours […]

Beauty | My Little Box

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 […]

Long time no see! Excuse me for the absence of posts this past month but I am still getting adjusted to having a blog. I hope you had a lovely summer break or at least a lovely summer. My beauty routine in the summer is quite different from what it is in the winter for two […]

Beauty | My MAC lipsticks

I thought of naming this post “my favourite MAC lipsticks” but truth be told I only own the four featured in this post. I only own lipsticks in the Lustre finish. I think this is due to the fact you can build them up if you want more colour or just apply a thin layer […]

Jo Malone Perfume

Beauty | Jo Malone

Let’s talk about scents. I was never a perfume girl… there I said it (no I did not stink either). I got perfumes for my birthday occasionally or I would try a perfume. I would use them don’t get me wrong but I was never that girl “without my perfume I feel naked”. For my […]

She wanted to develop an innovative skin care brand rooted in organic ingredients and sustainable technology with a feeling of luxury. I first heard about Estelle and Thild in a store in Brussels, […]
