Weekly Diary

Hello you guys! Today I'm going to show you how my week went with the help of a few pictures!

First of all I've been writing a lot this week, I really enjoy it and I got lots of time, so why not? 

Even though school is out and we were ready for a hot summer, it didn't stop raining for a while. We planned to go swimming on the last day of school but it rained so hard that we didn't even get there. Luckely it's better now, this morning I woke up and the sun was shining already!

I also went to celebrate my good results with an ice cream (and my sister's company)! I did some shopping as well (you'll soon hear more about that!)

Even maths was a succes this trimester. Just wanted to put up this picture because I feel like it's me. Now, enough of school!

Bert Stern died on Tuesday. He's the photographer known for the pictures he took of Marilyn Monroe for a Vogue issue. A few weeks after he had the photoshoot with her, Marilyn died. That's why this photoshoot is often called "The Last Sitting".
Here's a picture of Bert posing in front of a picture that he took of Marilyn Monroe in 1962.

My sister photobombing me...

And writing, writing, writing! 

That's about it! How was your week?

Gosh pigments review!

Hello everyone! A few months ago I bought some pigments on clearance. I put them in my vanity but I never wrote about them. Recently I remembered I hadn't used these beauties in quite a while, I also remembered I never even reviewed them, so that's what I'm going to do today.

All the pigments are by Gosh. They're called "Sky" (white), "Glamour" (yellow) and "Plummy" (brown/purple). The jar that "Plummy" is in is either old packaging or new packaging. It's not thesame as the jars that "Sky" and "Glamour" are in.

The jars might look small but there's a lot of pigment in there!

"Plummy", "Glamour", "Sky".
I think the pigmentation is amazing. Pigments, in my opinion, are always more pigmented than eyeshadows, but I'm still always very surprised when I see how good the pigmentation is. Does that make sence?
 It does crumble a bit and pigments do give more fall out than eyeshadows but that's not a reason for me not to buy pigments! 

So yes, I am very excited about these babies and I don't even know how I could ever forget about them! They look amazing and I fell in love with them again! Good job, Gosh!

Kérastase hair products!

Hello! Way back, somewhere in the beginning of the year I subscribed to a beautybox. I, back then, got three Kérastase hair products. At first I used them a few times but then I forgot about them. Lately I've been using them often again and today I just wanted to review all of them at once.

The first product I have is a hair oil. In the beginning I wasn't very crazy about hair oils but my hair is very dry easily and my hairdresser told me that maybe I should use more hair oils and conditioners. So I started using this hair oil again, at first against my will but after I while I saw that my hair was less damaged and it looked nice and it smelled nice so I decided to keep using it.

Next I have a shampoo and conditioner. They smell amazing! Not overwelming, not like an old lady, I feel like it's the perfect scent for anyone! It's really foamy, which I love, you don't need a lot. The conditioner is a conditioner for the dry ends of your hair, which is exactly what I needed. This one smells great too! It makes your hair insanely soft and moisturized.


So yes, my opinion has changed on the hair oil, in the beginning of the year I wasn't crazy about hair oils at all but my opinion has turned around about that. Have you tried Kérastase products before? Do you like them?

Catrice nude palette makeup look!

A while ago I got the new Catrice nude palette. I was so excited about it that I started creating new makeup looks with it immediately. I posted one of the looks already but I forgot to show you my most used makeup look. This has become my daily makeup look!

The look that I made is quite simple, using the colour on the left, the fourth and the fifth colour in this palette (starting from the left).
I use the colour on the left as lid colour and highlight, the fourth colour is my crease colour and the fifth colour is my outer "V" colour!

This is a very simple, easy to achieve, quick look! I love it!

The eyeliner and mascara used for this look are by Essence.

Thanks for reading!


Hello everyone! I just got home from school and I have really good news: I succeeded! This means that next year I will be doing my last year in high school and after that I'm free to go ahead and chase my dreams!

Even though I was really stressed out because math is not a good subject of mine and I didn't want to fail it, I am glad that it's over for two months and that I don't have to worry about anything because I didn't actually fail it! God what a relief!


I just wanted to update you and share the good news with you! I'm starting this summer with a good feeling and no regrets! You do too?

Thank you so much for reading and supporting and I'll see you in my next post, later today!

Pressed Powders I like to use!

Hi! A little while ago I received a request to review my Miss Sporty So Matte pressed powder because I had shown it in a post. Instead of reviewing my Miss Sporty powder alone, I decided to show all the powders that I use right now and review them all for you.

I already have a review on the first powder by Essence: the all about matt fixing compact powder.
 The other two powders are "Medium" by Miss Sporty and "Natur Sand" by Biocura.

The girl in the background is Marilyn Monroe! It's from "The Last Sitting" with Bert Stern in 1962!

As you can see, of all three powders I have used my Miss Sporty powder most of all. I've had it the longest. When I was younger my mother recommended this one to me and so I kept on buying it over and over again because she told me it was a really great product. This is the third Miss Sporty powder and I've even hit pan on this one! This powder has medium coverage.

I also used to tan really fast so the colour was great. These last years, tanning has become a little bit harder (it doesn't go as fast as it used to), so for the moment I'm quite pale and this powder is too dark for me. That's why I got the two other powders.

The Essence powder is really good because this one absorbs the oil on your face but it doesn't leave any colour. Needless to say I use this one most of the time now.
The Biocura powder does leave colour on your skin. This powder can be compared to the Miss Sporty powder, the only thing that's different is that the colour is lighter.

All the powders are very affordable. They all cost about thesame amount of money, which is around €3 / $4.

Do you have any powders to recommend? Leave them in the comments!
Thanks for reading!

Catrice "Frozen Rose" lipstick review

Hello everyone! Today I'm reviewing another super budget product. I'm talking about a lipstick by Catrice called "Frozen Rose". I normally don't wear a lot of pink lipstick but I got this one from a friend and it looked quite nice. Perfect for summer (if we're ever gonna get a summer here...)!

This is what the lipstick looks like. Just like all the regular Catrice lipsticks, it's in a black tube that has a sticker on the bottem with the colour of the lipstick and the name on it. The name "Catrice" is also pressed into the lipstick, which is a nice detail. They do this with all their lipsticks and I love that! So cute!

Here is a swatch of the lipstick. Luckely it's not a lipstick that dries out your lips. I don't really like it when lipsticks do. This lipstick has a nice creamy texture and it smells lovely too! I do like the colour of the lipstick as well. It's not too overwelming. Not too dark, not too nude. I think this would look great on a lot of people!

Switch from Google Reader to Bloglovin'!

Hello you guys! I put up a post before on this subject but I just wanted to remind you. As you all know Google Reader will go away.
I just hit a little over 100 followers so it wouldn't be very nice if I lost them all now. That's why I want to link you to my Bloglovin' account once more, so that you can go and follow my blog on there.

I'd like to see you all on Bloglovin'! Thanks for following!

EOTD: Wings!

Hello everyone! How are you doing?
I think I mentioned in one of my previous posts that lately I've been trying out a lot of different, new looks. Today I have another one to show you! I hope you're not getting bored!



The two colours on the left are two colours from my Essence eyeshadow palette. They are the two eyeshadows on the right. The swatch all the way on the right is the lightest colour from my Kelly Brook palette.

After applying eyeshadow base, I applied the colour from my Kelly Brook palette on my eyelid first. Next I used the silver colour from my Essence palette in the first part of my crease and the brown colour on the outer part. I wanted to keep it neutral so I didn't apply much of the brown, of course, you can always build it up if you'd like.

Next I applied eyeliner (Liquid ink eyeliner by Essence) and mascara (by Essence as well).

My wing went missing during the evening, haha! I keep on rubbing in my eyes and that's what you get then...

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think!

Weekly Diary

Hi you guys! It's been so long since I did a Weekly Diary! I did kind of miss it! So much has happened over the last few weeks!

First of all, my cat went into labor two weeks ago! We now have three little adorable kittens and it's unbelieveable how fast they grow! They are so beautiful, I wish they could stay small forever!

The weather has been getting really good as well. For the moment, we're stuck with a little storm but before that it has been insanely hot and sunny outside, which makes everyone a lot happier! I had a lot of strawberries that week!


And then I had exams, of course I didn't write that much during the exams but I did try not to keep you waiting for two whole weeks so every now and then I posted some new messages for you to read!


My "to review" box got fuller and fuller every single day! I'm glad I finally have some free time to start working on it!

During the exams, we grabbed a bite once in a while. This picture is taken at McDonalds, I had pin curls and a flower in my hair, and I was so proud of it haha!
The fiar flower is by H&M, in case you are wondering! I could talk lots and lots about things that happened to me during my exams but I don't want to bore you all!

 Also I got a new plant and it's growing quite fast! Look how adorable! I love to see things grow!

I also got Instagram! Did you check it out already?

EOTD: Bronze

Happy Saturday you guys! I have been experimenting with my makeup a little bit lately because I wanted to find some new looks. Normally I wear all the colours from one palette but I decided that today I wanted to combine a few colours that are not in thesame palette.

I came up with this bronze look today and I was really excited about it so I decided to share it with you guys. Here are the products I used: 

I used the Yves Rocher eyeshadow (Or cuivré) on my lid. Then I applied the left Essence eyeshadow (Party All Night) in my crease, blended and applied the right Essence eyeshadow (Metropolitan) in my outer "V". I went over it with the bottom left brown colour from my Color Magic eyeshadow kit and used the center pink for my inner tear duct. The white colour in the palette was used as a highlight.

Next I applied my Liquid ink eyeliner by Essence and mascara by Essence. Done! 


Face products used:

Maybelline FIT ME foundation in "115" (review)
Essence "It's popul-art" blush from the Vintage District collection (review)
Essence All about matt fixing compact powder (review)
Catrice eyebrow kit (review)
