Why I quit beauty blogging


This is going to be a very honest, straight from the heart blog post. I’ve been MIA for quite a while and let’s be real, I’ve never been very consistent with my blog posts either. Well, there’s a reason… In October-November 2016 I made some important decisions and as the title of this blog post suggests, one of them was to stop buying makeup and correspondingly to cease blogging about it. Why? Well, that’s what I’ll try to explain to you today. Little warning though: this is my opinion and this is how I feel about the subject. If that’s offensive to you, please leave this website and come back when you’ve reevaluated your existence ;-).


Yankee Candle Warm Summer Nights (Fall 2016)


Today I want to tell you about one of Yankee Candle’s current collections: Warm Summer Nights. Even though it might sound like it’s a summer collection, it’s actually released as one of their fall 2016 collections. The collection consists of four fragrances, of which I think three are definitely suitable to use all year round. So continue reading if you want to know more about Passion Fruit Martini, Dreamy Summer Nights, Flowers in the Sun and Sunset Breeze!


Lush Haul – Fall & Christmas 2016 Collection


The advantage of studying in Brussels is that you’ll never get bored in between classes. Not even when you have 4 or 6 hour breaks like I have sometimes… There’s plenty of time to go into the city and check out some stores. A few weeks ago, Lush was my shopping destination because the Halloween and Christmas collections were just screaming my name! I went to the store in the Rue des Fripiers, which is located on a walking distance from the central railway station. Curious what I bought and what’s available in stores? I’ll show you in today’s blog post!


Decorating my bedroom for Halloween!


Halloween is only one night away! I used to love Halloween as a child because it meant that I could stay up all night and watch horror movies. Except for the annual horror movie marathon on TV, Halloween has never been celebrated in Belgium, but I’ve noticed that things are changing. Slowly but surely, more Halloween themed products are available in stores or online. And today I would like to show you how I decorated my bedroom for Halloween. I hope you might get some ideas on how to decorate your bedroom for Halloween.


MAC Vibe Tribe Lipstick in Hot Chocolate


When MAC launches a new collection, you better be sitting behind your computer ready to order because everything always sells out in no-time in Belgium. So when MAC released their summer 2016 vibe tribe collection I unfortunately missed out on it. Luckily for me, the American website has limited editions available for a longer period of time, so I was still able to get my hands on the gorgeous lipstick in Hot Chocolate. Today I’ll be reviewing it for you so continue reading!


Essie Shimmer Brights Collection (Aim to Misbehave, Sexy Plunge, Seen on the Scene & DJ on Board)


For the first time ever I went to TK Maxx in Aachen (Germany) and I found this cute little Essie nail polish set there. It’s a set of four mini’s from the Shimmer Brights collection and today I will swatch these colorful shades for you. We’re currently having 33°C in Germany now, so perfect summer weather for slippers and painted toe nails! And the Shimmer Brights collection by Essie just screams summer!


Jouer Mermaid Iridescent Eyeshadow Palette (Review & Looks)


As you may have noticed already, everything that’s mermaid-related is extremely popular right now. Mermaid blankets, mermaid makeup bags, mermaid brushes and yes, also mermaid makeup. The American makeup brand Jouer went along with the trend and launched a limited edition mermaid eyeshadow palette for summer 2016. Today’s blog post will be a review of this palette and I also included two looks for which I used the palette. Let’s get started!


Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue (Nude, Rose & Berry)


Okay, I’m soooo excited for today’s blog post! When I saw the first pictures of these Tarte tinted lipbalms I decided I needed them in my life. Do you see that packaging? OMG, that’s literally THE cutest packaging EVER. And as you might know I’m a sucker for packaging so when this set of three launched on QVC I didn’t doubt for a second and ordered them right away! Today I will be reviewing three Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue balms.
