It's been a really long while since I've been subscribed to a beauty box. Before my blog took off I was subscribed to a few boxes, but as I gradually had more and more stuff laying around that still needed to be tested I cancelled my subscription. I did however really like the surprise element of these boxes back in the day, and I still repurchase some products I discovered through them (like the LUSH Dream Cream after I got a mini in a Glossybox). Birchbox reached out to me recently and asked whether I wanted to relive the whole beauty box subscription experience with them, so from the October box on I will be trying out three months of Birchbox again. I'm a little excited! And now for the really good news? You can join me!

Summer is coming to an end and I have surely enjoyed a bit of time off the blog and spent outside with my love, friends & family. I hope you have enjoyed your summer too. I must say that I'm pretty ready for Christmas now - only 113 days left! In the meanwhile I'll be trying to pick up a steady blogging pace here again. Sometimes you really need some distance to think about what you want to do with a hobby you've dearly loved having for the past 4 years, but want to introduce some change to. We'll see where it takes us! Today I want to shine some light on this beautiful Caudalie Vinosource revamp release - I got these in May - that really deserves some attention. I took three of these with me to Florida, and all three are nearly finished now!

A few months ago, along with their renewed nail polishes, Chanel introduced their newest lipstick: Rouge Coco Stylo. The formula and finish lays somewhere in between a lipstick and a lip balm: it's shiny, nourishing & smooth while still being quite pigmented. Admittedly I've been crushing hard on matte lippies the past year, but those can be quite drying and don't always fit every look - especially during hot summer days. These new Stylo ones come in pretty handy when you're after some shine & colour, but don't want to feel like you're wearing lipstick.

I've been blogging with a bit of a slow pace lately: I've decided not to force a stream of words, but to let them come naturally whenever I really feel like sitting down and blogging. Luckily I've lost my words during Summer time when most of you are enjoying much more time outdoors and have less time to read this blog. And very rightly so! I've been feeling very energised by spending more time outdoor (even if it's while catching Pokémon) and soaking up the sun, fresh air and good vibes. Talking about catching Pokémon: I went out on a Pokémon hunt with some bad ass winged liner, the first time I wore a bold wing in what feels like ages. I kinda lost my wing way the past years as they would just never end up right, but I finally figured out how to use the Beautyblender Liner.Designer and finally mastered those wings.

Now this article has been a long time coming.. I've been back for nearly two months now, but it's been a hard getting back into the routine of things and I've been forgetting about this article. With the sudden amazing weather in Belgium, I figured it's finally time to get this one published. My boyfriend and I went on holiday to Florida in May for two weeks and needless to say, it was very sunny there! I am not used to lots of sun (I had a huge vitamin D deficiency this Winter to show for it) and to top it all off, I got a sudden sun allergy last year that has warned me to be cautious with how I protect my skin from the sun. We used a whole lot of sun products in Florida, such as no less than three spray bottles of body sunscreen. Yep, I took things very seriously!
