EOTD: Electric

I'm back with another eye of the day! Today I have a fun, bright look. I made this look using the Catrice Haute Future eyeshadows that I got last week.

I wet my brush to apply the first mint colour. Next I used the purple/brown shade in my crease. To tone the look down a big, I applied a thick black eyeliner with a wing.

For that little extra touch, I applied a purple eyeliner in "Hola, chica". It's by Essence as well!

I'm pretty happy with the way the look turned out. What do you think?

Have a good day!

Catrice Haute Future eyeshadows

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! 


When I'm at the drugstore, I love to go see what new products Catrice has. A few days ago, I saw that they had a new limited edition called "Haute Future". The eyeshadows looked really good, so I got two.

The packaging of the eyeshadows is so pretty! It's a very futuristic design, I love it! 
I got a green/blue minty colour and a purple colour. The eyeshadows are duochrome.

The green eyeshadow is called "Never Green before".

The purple eyeshadow is called "CO2 iROSEdescent".

The pigmentation is good, the colours are so beautiful! I find that when I apply them, there is quite a big of fall out, especially when using the mint green eyeshadow because the texture is different.
That's why I like to wet my brush before I use the mint green. It makes the colour more vibrant!

I'm pretty happy with the colours, they look really nice, the pigmentation is good and it's cheap!

Thanks for reading!

OOTD: The long lost outfit of the day!

Hello everyone! 
I'm back with another outfit of the day! I actually shot these pictures about 2 months ago, when I was in Prague. I guess I just never put them on the blog!

In this post I'm wearing a little black dress that I got in Prague. You can't actually see it that well, but
 there's actually a belt attached with a big bow, which accentuates my waist.
I didn't bring any heels in my suitcase so I wore basic, black ballet flats by H&M. My purse is also by H&M. 

I'm sorry the pictures are so dark, I hope you liked this long lost outfit of the day night though!

EOTD: Playful!

Hello everyone! 
Summer seems to finally be here and of course, I like to recreate my feelings in my looks. Today I'm obviously feeling happy! 
I used my newest MAC make-up palette to make this look.


The colours that I used are "Amber lights" (on the lid), "Humid" in the crease and "Sketch" in the outer corner. 


I also used a colour close to my skin colour to blend the colours in the crease out and I used a light higlighter. Both of the colours used for that are from my ELF 144 neutral colours palette.

My eyeliner and mascara are by Essence.

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day!

Essence all about sunrise eyeshadow palette

Hi everyone! The Essence "all about..." eyeshadow palettes have been a huge trend here in Belgium and the Netherlands, but they never seemed very special to me. So a couple of days ago, I decided I would buy one and see for myself.

I got the "all about sunrise" palette, it looked the prettiest (according to me) and the colours look beautiful with blue eyes!

I was actually really surprised, there's lots of product in this palette.

Swatches! The pigmentation of this palette isn't bad at all! The colours do feel a little bit chunky, but I don't think I'll have any problems with that when I'm applying the make-up.
Do make sure to do your eye make-up before you do your face make-up though, other wise the chunky fall out will ruin your face make-up, it's so hard to get it off without make-up remover!

That's it for today! I recommend getting this palette if you're looking for a cheap palette with good eyeshadows. Don't worry if you don't like the colours, there are other "all about..." palettes available.

Have a good day!

OOTD: Happy day ♥

Happy Monday! Here I am with another outfit of the day!
This is the outfit I wore last week on Thursday and Friday. The weather was beautiful and it was hot outside! 

I decided to wear my white and red dress by Hell Bunny. It has a cute rose print and a beautiful red belt. I put my hair in a bun. Classy, easy, quick.

Since the print is already eye catching, I decided not to wear too many accessories. I did wear my half-heart necklace because the colour of the necklace is the exact same colour as the colour of the roses on my dress.

For lipstick, I used the Rimmel Apocalipse lip laquer in "Big Bang". You can read my review on it here.

The flower in my hair is by Claire's.

Thanks so much for reading! Have a good day!

Weekly Diary

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday!
I have another Weekly Diary for you! Next week is my last week in school, after that I have two weeks of exams and presentations, and hopefully by the end of June, I'll be a high school graduate. Before that happens, I'm going to tell you all about my week.

This week I finally finished my final paper. It's about an internship in a company as an accountant because I've been studying economics in high school. I can't believe so much work made such a small paper.
However, I'm glad it's done!

After all that stressing, I treated myself with a blueberry mask! AH-MAZ-ING.

This made me giggle so much! 
I used to do make-up for friends for free (they'd always tell me they would pay me back or get me something later, but they never did), so this made me think of those situations. Now I either charge or you have to be a REALLY close friend to get your make-up done for free. I mean, MAC products are expensive for me too!

Answering and getting letters!


Look what they put in the envelope for me! 


These smiley post-it's remind me of my work ànd to keep smiling.

On Thursday, the place I work at had a vintage inspired party and they asked me to come over (wearing my vintage dress and everything) to help out that evening! 
It was so cool! 
I don't have the pictures yet, but I hope I'll be able to share them with you soon! Here's a sneak peek of the outfit I wore to school that day.
Of course the dress changed in the evening! 

That's it! Have a good day and I'll talk to you on Monday!

Beauty and hair haul!

Hi everyone! 
Today I have a haul for you! I got some new things for my hair, but I also got some make-up items. Rumour has it that MUA is coming to the Netherlands and Belgium, but so far I haven't found anything! Better luck next time.

First of all, I got a good brush, I needed a brush like this for pin-up hairdo's. I also got new hairspray. Not that important.

Then, I got the Catrice BB cream that I love so much (I probably already have a review on it) and I repurchased their camouflage cream concealer as well.
I also repurchased my Essence Get big lashes mascara, so that I have a back up.

Aside from that, I got two baked eyeshadows from Catrice's limited edition called "Haute Future" and I also got an Essence "All about sunrise" eyeshadow palette with lovely, bright, summer ready colours!

Reviews will be online soon!

Being accepted

 Being accepted. It's hard, but once you get it, it is lovely.

As you know, if you're a loyal reader of this blog, I have struggled to express myself for quite some time. I didn't feel comfortable with people judging me (especially at school and at work), and it took me work and peptalks to finally be able to be who I wanted to be.

Graduation was only 1 year away at the time, so I thought it wouldn't be that hard. 


Since then, a lot of people have proven me wrong (for example people in my class who try to humiliate me for wearing flowers in my hair). But more important are the people who have accepted me the way I am.

I can honestly say I am so proud of doing what I have done. I feel like I have turned my life around for the better. I know who I am, and other people know who I am.
Reason for writing this post? Just to tell anyone out of you that's struggling like I was, to never give up.
And secondly, to thank everyone who hasn't made me feel bad about myself - and who has come up for me. It feels good to hear something positive every once in a while.

So yeah...
Thanks for reading! Thanks for being. ♥
