Essence Spring/ Summer 2020

As long as we had to wait for the new Catrice products, that’s how quickly we got the new Essence products. There aren’t that many, but what is there had me excited. There is a new range of blushes, a tinted primer, a new loose powder, single eyeshadows, a full range of liquid lipsticks and…

Catrice Spring/ Summer 2020

Yay! It is finally here! The long-awaited Catrice Spring/ Summer 2020 update is now in stores and I picked up some products again to try. This is by now a solid tradition on my blog and Youtube channel. In case you are not aware, Catrice updates their makeup line every 6 months. They take out…

Top 6 Summer lipsticks

Lipsticks are some of my favorite products for the summer time. Where I keep my eye and face makeup quite minimal, I love going in with a bright bold lip. It instantly amps up your look and hides the fact that the rest of your makeup didn’t get that much attention. Not only does it…

Summer fragrances I love

In the summer time, I not only change up my makeup routine for more lightweight and liquid products, I also change up the fragrances I like to wear. Perfumes and scents are always very seasonal for me. I grab for particular scents of The Body Shop shower gels depending on the season and I do…

Summer Bronzers

Bronzer is such a summer time staple product but if you are fair skinned they can be hard to find. But over time I have found quite a few bronzers that I love year round and a few that I love particularly when the weather gets warmer and I am not as fair skinned as…

5x Summer Blush Favorites

Blush is one of my favorite products to reach for in the summer time. It is when I wear some of my brighter more fun shades as I am no longer super pale and therefore can handle a bit more blush on my face. That’s why I thought it would be fun to share with…

Spring to Summer Transitional Lookbook

It is that weird moment in time where it is not yet summer and not quite spring anymore. There are cool spells in the morning and warm spells in the afternoon. And that means that it is difficult to get dressed. That is why I thought I could be of help and bring you a…

Catrice & Essence Haul Update

It’s been a few weeks since I showed you the new producs that Catrice and Essence brought out for spring/ summer 2019. I first showed you the Catrice products in early February as they are always first. A few weeks later, Essence released their update and I posted my video on the new products in…

Essence Spring/ Summer 2019

If you saw my Catrice video from a few weeks ago, you probably already knew that an Essence version would not be long to arrive. The Essence products always arrive a little bit later, so that is why today I am sharing their new products with you. I again have nearly a full face of…

Catrice Spring/ Summer 2019

The time is here! The new Catrice products for Spring/ Summer 2019 were launched this week and that means another video where I show you all the bits I got. And there is so much here that I can do a full face of first impressions. Holy moly! That is a lot of new makeup…

Summer sale haul (try on)

I finally got lucky! Remember how in my previous haul, I mentioned not being able to find anything? Well the sales were very very kind to me (and I, or my bank account, to them) and found lots of great stuff often at great prices too. So I decided to film a try on haul…

Fave summer nail polishes

For summer I love wearing bright nail polish! Even though I haven’t been wearing much nail polish lately, just looking at these makes me want to start polishing my nails again. I hit a spell where I wore nail polish again for a few weeks earlier this year, but I have just been too busy…

Spring 2018 try on haul

Today’s video is a spring/ summer fashion try on haul. I purchased a few items to update my wardrobe for the upcoming season and I thought I’d show them to you. I am going to talk you through all the items I got and show them on in the mean time too. Hope you enjoy…

Spring trends in your wardrobe

For this week’s Thursday video, I decided to make it a fashion one. This time it’s a concept that I have done loads in written blog posts, but never in video form. But rather than taking pictures, I decided to talk you through some of my favorite spring/ summer 2018 trends and how I already…

Essence Spring/ Summer 2018

At the end of January I already showed you the new Catrice collection for spring/summer 2018 and now Essence has finally released theirs.  This is how Cosnova, the mother company behind the two brands, always does this. First Catrice, then Essence a month later. And there were a lot of Essence products that piqued my…

Catrice Spring/ Summer 2018 makeup collection

It’s time! It’s time! Time for the new Catrice Spring/ Summer 2018 edit that is. As always Catrice has just launched their new products for the new season as they do every 6 months. While not yet available in store, I was able to find the products already online. I placed an order and immediately…

Summer sale haul

As a bit of a treat-yourself-moment, I decided to get some fashion bits in the summer sale to celebrate my own birthday. Summer sales are my favorite as I feel you get the best deals. So I usually go ham. And I went ham this year too. Shoes were my main vice and I also…

Fashion wishlist

There are so many cool pieces floating around now, but I’m trying to be a good girl and not spend all my money as I’m trying to save up for a house this year. That’s why I am currently on a pretty much all out fashion no buy, which is why I can only lust…

New in: Catrice Spring/ Summer 2017

It seems Catrice rolls out their line update earlier and earlier, as I already spotted all of their new products at my local drugstore last Thursday. Their spring/ summer line change seems to be the biggest one every year and boy did they come up with some cool new products to try out. There are…

Catrice & Essence Spring/ Summer 2016

It’s February, which means that Catrice and Essence are once again overhauling their lines. I was at my drugstore last Tuesday and found a ton of the new Catrice items. From Essence I just found a few bits that I hadn’t yet tried as well as their new limited edition All That Greys. I decided…

Lookbook summer 2015: Get boho in Soho

This year’s summer trends are not really up my alley. The colors are muted, there are few great dresses to be found and I just wasn’t all that inspired this season. I managed to incorporate a few summer trends though in today’s lookbook. My main aim is that boho/ 70s vibe that is all the…

Spring/ summer 2015 Catrice haul

The new Catrice line is here! I was at my drugstore this week and lo and behold I walked into the display filled with brand new products for Spring/ Summer 2015. I simply bought everything that caught my eye and I will be showing you everything I purchased two ways: there’s a video AND there…

Colorful make up look for summer

Apart from colorful nails, I like wearing colorful make up looks from time to time. Especially summer time calls for brighter, bolder colors on the eyes. I love going for greens, blues and purples. My favorite palette to use for adding some pop of color is one of my Inglot palettes and so I used…

5x summer polish faves

Summer is a great time for wearing nail polish. It’s a perfect time to do away with glittery top coats (although I like wearing those year round), and go with bright or pastel creamy colors. For summer, I like to go for extremes: the boldest blues, the brightest reds, but also some muted colors that…

Lookbook summer 2014: Summer fling

Since I liked doing the spring lookbooks so much, I decided to keep it going for summer. I have plans to do one lookbook per month and they will tie in with the seasons. This time I have my first summer lookbook for you. It’s more of a: it’s summer, but not quite-type of lookbook….

Quick & easy summer make up look

When temperatures start to rise, I never feel like doing a complete 15 – 20 minute make up routine. I forgo the smokey eyes and ditch the foundation. What I want is a make up look that is quick and easy to create but that stays on all day despite the sweaty weather. However, this…

Summer Music Festivals: Rock Werchter & Pukkelpop

To get the ultimate summer feeling all one has to do is visit a music festival. Provided the weather is nice, it simply doesn’t get better than lying in a grassy field while listening to some great music. I went to my first multi-day festival last year and liked it so much that I went…

Bands I hope to see at Pukkelpop

Pukkelpop is a Belgian music festival that I went to last year as well. That was my first ever summer music festival that lasted more than just a day. I had been to my fair share of concerts, but music festivals were not so much my thing. Music however is, so it was only a…

My summer jam: Bibio – Silver Wilkinson

You probably know how I love to discover new music and today I would like to share with you music by one particular artist that instantly makes your day a little bit brighter and summer just a tad nearer. I present to you: Bibio. I have been purchasing quite a few CDs these past few…

Fashion Wishlist Spring 2012

Spring hasn’t even started yet, but summer fashion is already making its way into the stores. I already showed you a few fashion items that I purchased recently featuring spring trends. My favorites have to be the bright and pastel colors. I have always loved a good pop of color in my wardrobe and so…
