Falsies, Greige Nail Polish & New Bling

The Happiness Boutique
My nails were having a good moment the past few months - hair supplements not only make your hair stronger, but your nails too. I was happily filing away when all of the sudden my bad nail luck came back and I had not one, but two nails tearing. Now I don't mind a short nail, but there tears were quite deep into my nail so just filing them down was not an option.. In come DIY falsies: I purchased a box a couple of months ago at HEMA after I saw a YouTube tutorial on how to get the perfect mani at home, and being mani-lazy as I am I had not tried them yet. And what do you know.. They ended up looking really pretty and elegant! Add to that new bling ring from The Happiness Boutique, and I'm all confident about my hands again.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette: Hello Cheekbones!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette Light to Medium Review And Look I was so surprised when I found out that Anastasia Beverly Hills is available in Belgium, and not just in one or two specialty cosmetics stores, but in countrywide retailer Planet Parfum. I'll admit that I haven't been much of a Planet Parfum shopper the past few years, but it looks like they are changing their approach and I really like what I've been seeing from them the past few months. As with most other big beauty retailers they differentiate with a few brands exclusive to Planet Parfum, of which Anastasia Beverly Hills is one. I recently got their infamous Contour Palette & since I've been a little addicted to contouring lately, I was pretty stoked to try it out.

How To Bullet Journal: My First Bujo

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!

Whoa: Dior DreamSkin 1-Minute Mask

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?

How Fun Is This? Babor's 2017 Easter Egg

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!
