Everyone who knows me a little, knows I have a thing for Asian stuff. One glance at these photos should tell you why. As someone who has been reviewing products for a couple of years now I should know better, but the fact is packaging can still persuade me into making a purchase. I’m just a simple consumer with a soft spot for all things kawaii/aegyo/cute after all, and given the global rise of Asian beauty products, I’m not the only one. … Continue reading
Dear reader, it’s done. After years of swearing by liquid foundations, I’m back to where it all started for me: power foundation. Gasp. Even I cannot believe it. Like so many Dutch/Belgian teens I started out with the Hema compact powder foundations. My (junior) high school friends and I loved them to death and hit pan one compact after another. All of that ended when I tried and discovered the magical natural-looking powers of a liquid foundation and I never looked back.
As it’s slowly getting colder and the air is getting drier, chances are your lips are popping faster than popcorn on a hot plate. I never leave the house without a lip balm and if you don’t want lips that look like a shedding snake, neither should you. Rituals recently came up with a new lip care range called ‘Oriental Kiss‘, inspired by an ancient Chinese tradition, featuring 6 products that look absolutely amazing.
Do you know what brings me happiness on Mondays? A bright pop of colour on my nails. I might not be a peacock when it comes to fashion, but I like to make a little exception for my nails, whether its pink, blue, purple or green, I’ll wear it all. Fancy a bit of colour on your nails?

Oh Dior, what have you done to me? Lately I’ve been obsessing over their new eyeshadow palettes and I just can’t stop playing with them. Today I want to show you one in particular, Versailles, and an effortless look I created with it. But first I’d like to mention another one of their products first. Now I’m not a fan of high-end lip balms at all. I just can’t see the point of spending a lot of money on a … Continue reading
Can you believe October is already over? Sheesh.. time flies. This month’s faves post is a modest one. I discovered some new products in September – October and I’ve created a look around them and pretty much stuck to it the entire month. I also have my Fall Edit coming up, in which I’ll show you some more of my Autumn favourites. So here’s what I’ve been using and loving a lot during the month of October:
Every once and awhile I get the opportunity to crawl out of my beauty comfort zone and try something completely new. I’ve been intrigued by hair extensions for years but due to some bad connotations it has always put me off to try them myself. That, and I’ve always had long hair to begin with so there wasn’t that much to extend anyway. If I ever were to try them, they couldn’t look cheap and I would be able to … Continue reading
Dare I say it? I don’t like going to the hairdressers. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the perfect cut and colour, but I’m just not a fan of the process of getting that amazing new did. I find it not enjoyable most of the time. The waiting, sitting still, the sink that hurts my neck, the random chit chat, the loud hairdryer and endless tugging of my hair during brushing. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I don’t … Continue reading
