If you're one of those girls or boys who aren't a big fan of those typical autumn/winter mani colours (think khaki, grey, blackened reds, black, ..), then you'll love Orly's spring collection for sure. It's about as colourful as it gets! This collection - dubbed the Melrose collection - is inspired by the Melrose district in LA which offers a mix of posh designer stores, hipster shops and great restaurants. It'd take me about 13 hours to fly to LA from Brussels, but this mani only needs about fifteen minutes.

Now I love a good face sculpting job just like Kylie & Kim do; I never do my makeup without at least a bit of light contouring. Contouring has been all the hype the past few years and I don't think it's dying out anytime soon - it's such an easy cheat to perky cheekbones and a healthy glow. L'Oréal Paris knows whats up has just launched their new Infallible Sculpt range, which contains a whole bunch of sculpting products going from face defining powders and creams to eye defining eyebrow gel and mascara. I haven't tried out the whole range yet (I only have one face!), but these blushes I love already!

Let's talk Rituals. Not only about my own beauty rituals, but also about the Dutch beauty brand Rituals. The brand has been around for 16 years now and has been slowly conquering the world. The idea of the brand is to change everyday beauty rituals into special moments by adding just a little something extra to the products we're using. A simple bath can become a spa-like experience with a good candle, the right bath foam & a luxurious scrub. While I used to be quite conscious of all my expenses when I was a student, I've now really discovered the joy of these little luxuries. And Rituals fits right into that bracket. Their recently renewed Ayurveda collection is one of their most popular lines and I can totally see why!

't Is the season. The hunt for the perfect spring mani is on! And Chanel has immediately worked its way to the top of the list with a new formula and a bunch of limited edition spring proof shades. We need to be honest here: Chanel has always had the prettiest nail polish colours, but the longevity wasn't always up to par. A thing which now is however, ladies & gentlemen, a thing of the past. The new Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour keeps its promise in its name. And I have the prettiest colour of all 15 new shades on my nails!

I'm back with more MAC newness - this update is too beautiful not to properly share. The Charlotte Olympia x MAC Cosmetics collection is a special launch beauty fiends have been eagerly looking forward to since it was first announced. Think old school Hollywood glamour, pin-up reds & very pretty customised packaging.
