September Deauty Box

As I told you guys in my previous post, I was one of the lucky few to already receive a Deauty Box for September. So happy with that! 
Already saw the content on their site and really wanted this one. 
Got this box on Tuesday but first wanted to try out the products so I could also give you a first impression of them.
So let’s get to it!
First of all, have to say that the box is incredibly beautiful. All black with just the white print of a bird on it, and the inside is just the other way round.  Opening it, the products were all nicely wrapped in black paper tied together with a white ribbon. 
There’s also a little note which says “Your Discovery” and which gives you an overview of the products, what they are for and also whether you received a sample size or a full size.
It also tells you how much the full size is and what the retail price is.
So what did we get:
Clarins – HydraQuench Intensive Serum – 15ml (Full size: 30 ml – Price: 58,50€)
Invisible and comfortable, this bi-phase serum helps restore a more youthful-looking appearance to dehydrated skin.
Have been using this for 3 days now and really like it.  Can’t say I can already see a difference (3 days is a bit short for that) but it definitely leaves my skin feeling super soft and moisturised. And it smells amazing.
Nuxe – Micellar Cleansing Water with 3 roses and green tea – 100 ml full size (Price: 10 €)
Alcohol and perfume free cleansing water for face, eyes and lips.  For all skin types, even sensitive skin.
Nuxe is one of my favorite brands.  Been using the Huile Prodigieuse for quite some time now and I love it.  So my hopes were up!
This cleansing water did not fail me.  Love it!  Really takes off all the rests of my make-up, my skin feels very cleaned but not dried out at all and it does not irritate my skin, which happens quite often with other cleansing waters.  This is something I will probably be repurchasing in the future.
L’Oreal Professionnel – Mythic Oil – 125 ml full size (Price: 19€)
Nourishing oil for all hair types
This is one of the products I was most looking forward to try out. 
As you may, or may not know, I have the most frizzy hair you can imagine.  Seriously, even when it’s this short, I don’t even need humidity to make it frizz.  It’s just its natural state.
So I have been using all kinds of oils for my hair and so far they all kind of did the trick.  Lately I have been using the L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil and it worked to some extend.
So I was eager but not to hopeful that the Mythic Oil would be any different.  It is different.
First of all, again, amazing smell!  Like you’ve just been to the hairdresser!
This oil really works for my hair.  I used 2 to 3 pumps on my short hair and bye bye frizz!  Even without blow drying it!  Hopefully it will still work when my hair gets longer.
Redken – Full Effect 04 Nourishing Mousse – 65 ml (Full size: 250 ml – Price: 24,30€)
This ultralight stylingmousse creates volume and nourishes your hair.
Not really ultralight!  It’s a very creamy mousse that comes out, not like your average styling mousse which is sometimes more air than product.  On my short hair, it’s kind of hard to tell whether it really gave volume.  I think it did but this will probably work better if your hair is longer.  But I like the texture of it and I like the smell.
Essie – Nailpolish “Size Matters” – 13,5 ml full size (Price: 10,99€)
A beautiful ruby red colour!
No more words needed!  It’s a gorgeous color, it’s Essie and it’s perfect for autumn and winter!  This is going to be a staple of mine!
Ok, that’s it!  Those were all the products we got.  Super pleased with this box, thank you so much Deauty!  Can’t wait to see what next month will bring!
Hope you guys liked my little review, have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you soon!

Skirt, blouse, scarf: Zara // Shoes: Tout Le Monde // Bag: Nathan-Baume
Always feel so classy and chic wearing an all white outfit combined with neutrals.
Love the combination of the crochet skirt with the silky blouse.  Gives it an interesting twist.
Celebrated my birthday this weekend! Thanks so much for all the super sweet birthday wishes!
Enjoyed a lovely dinner with friends and did some shopping.  I was actually on the hunt for some cool studded biker boots. Think I found them but I’m still in doubt what I should buy:  studded biker boots or black wedged sneakers!  Any suggestions?
Gonna finish painting my nails now!
Talk to you soon!

Discovering Beauty

We all know Glossybox and Birchbox, unfortunately both of them not available in Belgium.
Countless times I have watched the unpacking on youtube or have read the reviews and hauls on blogs only to leave me even more unsatisfied with the fact I would probably never have such a box.  But all that is now going to change thanks to Deauty!
Deauty is the first beauty box in Belgium and it is 100% Belgian as well.  It stands for Discovering Beauty which means it wants to help woman find their beauty.  
For those of you who are not familiar with the concept, these boxes are a monthly subscription for which you get 4 to 6 sample (travel) size products. Going from skincare to haircare to even make-up and perfume.  On their site you will find inspiration, information, tutorials and a lot of tips about beauty and make-up.
They even already gave away the names of some of the brands they’ll be working with:
Bioterm, Clarins, Clinique, Essie, Estée Lauder, Kérastase, Kiehl’s, l’Oreal, Nuxe, Redken.
Deauty will cost 15 €/month so if you’re interested you can register here to be the first to find out:
I’m super excited about this one!
Talk to you soon!

Youtube Loves

Promised you guys that a few things would change on the blog and that I would also post more about my other interests and loves besides fashion.
One of those things is beauty and make-up.  I remember when I was little I loved secretly using my mom’s blushes and lipsticks, painting my nails, doing my hair and wearing her high heels while playing dress up.  And I still love it every day!
I love getting ready in the morning, I even sometimes first pick my make-up and then choose what to wear with it.
I have learned so much about make-up throughout the years but the biggest inspiration for me still comes from watching beauty gurus on Youtube.
So I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you!  They’re fun to watch, you can learn so much from them and you can discover great new products to try out.
Starting off today with Tatiana from GlamLifeGuru.

I only recently discovered her channel but she already is one of my favorites.  Her videos are fun to watch and you can tell she puts so much effort into them.  They are very informative and well thought through.  She talks about make-up, does reviews, hauls, monthly favorites, hair tutorials, etc… thanks to her I have discovered so many amazing products and new things to try out.  She also is a firm believer, like me, in beauty that comes from inside out.  Meaning that what you eat and drink will reflect on how your skin and hair will look.  So the healthier and more balanced your diet is, the better you will look. I could go on and on about how amazing I think she is but I can also just show you a video so you can find out for yourself.
I decided to share with you one of her latest videos: Big Bouncy Curls – Conair Hot Rollers
When I see this, I kind of feel sad for cutting my hair short J

If you like her please check out her channel: GlamLifeGuru and subscribe!


Hope you guys enjoyed and I’ll talk to you soon.

A night on the town

H&M dress // Zara sandals // Chloë clutch

One of the things I love on vacation are the warm summer evenings.
Perfect for walking around the little harbours and just enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Went for drinks at St Maxime wearing my new dress from H&M.
Normally I never wear flower dresses, just not me, but for this one I gladly made an exception. Probably cause it isn’t so typical and cause the colours are a bit neon.

It’s Monday again so that means back to work! 
Talk to you soon
