It didn't take too long for me to get caught up in the bullet journal hype. After seeing a couple of pictures pass by on Instagram and looking up some videos on YouTube, I knew I needed to give this bujo (short for bullet journal) thing a try. I am not a very artsy person, but after seeing some very creative bullet journal featuring lots of colours, drawings, sketches and washi tape I decided I wanted to see where my bullet journal could take me and my creativity. And of course it's not only about creativity, but mostly about planning and productivity. If you feel like a regular planner doesn't hold enough space for you, or perhaps even gives too much space to some compartments, this planner is for you. What you put in your bullet journal, and how you put it in there, is 100% your choice. And that's what makes it as awesome as it is!

Some mornings, you just look and feel like you haven't slept all that much. And to be honest, this is my story nearly every morning.. So when my skin is looking tired and dull but I'm rushing, I need products that work their wonders as quickly as possible. Makeup obviously does a great job (never underestimate the power of highlighter), but good skin is always the first step. Dior knows what's up and recently launched their DreamSkin 1-Minute Mask: a gentle peeling mask that promises a "new skin effect". All of that in just one minute?

Spring is finally here! The weather has been amazing in Belgium, spring flowers have started to grow and my mind is feeling a lot brighter again now the sun goes down much later. As much as I love the winter holidays, I always feel like January and February are tough months to get through as it's so cold and dark out. Now that spring is here, it's time to give my skin a little kickstart as well. Luckily Babor was so kind to send me their yearly surprise calendar Easter Egg again (I wrote about it in 2012 as well, see here). And as you know how much I love Christmas advent calendars.. you can imagine how excited this one makes me too!

I've lately been a little smitten with a fragrance I wouldn't usually wear very often. I pretty much steer away from vanilla heavy scents, but this one has lured me in. Dior's Poison Girl Eau De Parfum has been around for about a year, and just in time for Spring the refreshed Eau De Toilette version has launched. Heavier scents usually give me a killer headache and don't make it to my fragrance cabinet, but this one is wearable and a great alternative for those looking for sultrier scents that can't take the heaviness of a fragrance like Dior's original Poison.
