Issey Miyake's L'Eau d'Issey is a fragrance with a personal history for me - it takes me back to my childhood, teenage years, early college days and still always makes me think of my mom. It's her signature scent, she's worn it ever since I was little and still does. I find it amazing how scents are so personal and bring back dozens of memories in just one tiny second. It's the most overwhelming feeling. This one does just that - the original L'Eau d'Issey is very recognisable and is certainly to be rediscovered within this City Blossom limited edition for Spring. A true classic, but different.

We already had a little preview of Spring weather here in Belgium, and with Spring finally kicking off for real today (the sun is even showing up for the occasion!), it's the perfect moment to dish out my thoughts on the Burberry Beauty Spring collection called The Birds & The Bees. Inspiration for this collection comes straight from the Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2015 runway collection, referring to the hand painted illustrations, sheer fabric, textures and vivid colours of the ready-to-wear clothes and accessories. It's a very playful collection, which isn't what we would usually associate Burberry Beauty with. But they do it beautifully, maintaining that Burberry chic.

Holy grail material. That's what the internet promises me about Chanel's Le Blanc. It's not just a primer, not just a highlighter and not only a base .. It's an all-around skin perfecting wonder product. I use it in a variety of different ways: on my cheekbones to highlight, on my whole face as an illuminating base, only on dry areas to soften the redness and get rid of patches and mixed in with my foundation for a long-lasting beautiful glow. And it works perfectly for all those purposes! This isn't another all-in-one promise, but one of those products that actually is multi-use and will make you glow. Seriously.

I hope your Sunday was great! I am a little late with this Sunday Favourites post as the weather here has become absolutely beautiful and I've been enjoying some much anticipated fresh air (the first since Wednesday evening as I had a pretty bad cold and stayed inside under a blanket for three days..) at the beach. Spring is really kicking in and I couldn't be more happy about it! I went to the flower market this morning and saw so many pretty Spring flowers - I should really purchase more daffodils to decorate the house as they make me smile. Some non-flower items also made me smile this week, such as the best green tea I've ever had and some new little friends I brought home with me from Disneyland..

Spring's here. While I am still carefully dressing very warm in the morning because it's still so cold out, there are some bright & sunny yellow daffodils in bloom in my kitchen and the sun warms up my house when it finally comes peeping through. I love the promise of Spring and Summer, I am so ready for these warmer seasons! With new seasons also come new makeup, with different textures and finished to suit the time. Dior is all about glow and plenty of colours for this year's Spring - a look that'll last you through Summer too as it's suitable for both early Spring days and hot Summer nights. Let's browse through Dior's Kingdom Of Colors and let me show you how these picks perform and look!
