TECHNIC Lashitude Mascara
Do you remember my review of Technic cosmetics? I was pretty satisfied with most of their products, but unfortunately the mascara turned out to be considerably less good. I smells quite nasty and also doesn't give the promised volume. It doesn't define my lashes and also makes them look less full than they appear when I use other mascaras. So far one of the weakest mascaras I tried.


Outfit: Safari Dress in Autumn

So far I didn't get the chance to show you this safari dress that I bought along with a pencil skirt and a bell blouse at Target this summer. However you could already see me wearing it at 35°C in this Instagram photo. Today however, you will get my autumnal version of styling a green midi dress.


New Sephora Collection Products

Sephora Collection products 2016

As I already told you guys on Instagram, I began at my first job last week. I am eager to tell you all the details about it, but for now I just want to see how it goes for me. Maybe I will write an entire post about what I studied and how I found a job. Would that be interesting for you? Anyway what I actually wanna talk about is the Sephora event I attended on Friday in order to discover their new products. After a week of getting up way too early, I found it hard to concentrate on all the product info, but therefor it felt all the more amazing to get pampered in a little makeover session. I was looked after by shop assistant Anita, who did an amazing job with my makeup and even got me to like a bold yellow and orange eyeshadow on myself. All in all the Sephora family gave me the warmest welcome and made me feel like a part of their team. And I certainly can't thank them enough for the huge goodie bag I went home with! Now let's have a look at some of the products that were inside!


Best Beauty Boxes Available In Luxembourg

We all know the famous beauty boxes that are being delivered on a monthly basis to beauty addicts all over the world. My absolute favourite has got to be the 'My Little Box' which comes up with the cutest surprises in the history of beauty boxes. Unfortunately, just like so many of the good things in life, the 'My Little Box' isn't available in Luxembourg. I could use my P.O. box to get it sent here but that would cost me an additional 5€ and let's be honest, beauty boxes are already expensive enough. So instead of being annoyed by the injustice of living in one of Europe's smallest countries, I decided to do some research on which beauty boxes are actually available for delivery to Luxembourg. And surprisingly I got more results than I had thought. Do you already know these 7 boxes from Germany, France and Belgium?


Outfit: Fall Office Attire

Today I'm not really in the mood to talk about my outfit. My feelings are a mess these days and I find it hard to really concentrate on a specific subject. So instead I want to write down a few thoughts about gratitude, as it's something I've been thinking about today. I don't know how about you but I tend to be really ungrateful sometimes. I wallow in self-pity even though I have no reason to feel sorry about myself. The major problem is that we easily forget about the good things in our lives and only think about the bad. We remember every insult but overhear the compliments we get. So after a while we seal ourselves off from others because we think everyone wants to harm us, but we completely forget that we need others, and what's more important, that they need us. Feeling sorry for yourself is easy, but caring about others requires courage. Let's all be a bit braver these days.


Rituals Christmas Collection 'The Ritual Of Light'

Rituals The Ritual Of Light Christmas Collection Review

One of the best things about Christmas has got to be the launch of Christmas themed beauty products (along with the launch of Christmas themed food of course). No wonder that this blog always turns more into a beauty rather than a fashion blog around the last 3 months of the year.


The 5 Kenzo x H&M Pieces I Might Actually Buy

Kenzo x H&M Collaboration Lookbook revealed

The full lookbook of H&M's latest designer coup is out and it reveals that the collection created by the Parisian fashion house Kenzo might be more wearable than the first campaign photos suggested after all. In case you don't remember, the first photos the world got to see of Kenzo x H&M featured a catsuit style combo of tiger print pants and pullovers in red and blue, combined with pink tiger print boots. Even though I am pretty sure that we'll be seeing these boots on Instagram more than we'd actually like to, I don't think that this whole tiger print thing will appeal to the masses. But luckily there's this other side of the collaboration that is still really colourful but has this dreamy boho-latina-folklore touch with a modern twist. Due to the colours and cuts most clothes can be worn both in winter and summer so investing in one of these pieces might not be so stupid after all. In a world where I'd have way more zeroes on my bank account, I would go for the following 5 pieces:


Outfit: Flares on Flares

Jackets and coats are often being considered as a necessity that protects us from cold or rain. A lot of fashion bloggers therefor put off their coat when shooting looks in the wintertime, because it hides their actual outfit. However to me the secret of having a good style is being able to wear outwear in a way that it naturally looks like a part of your outfit. Like you were intending to wear that very jacket when you decided on your pants, pullover and shoes.


Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2016

I know, I know... Some of you think it's way too early to start talking about Christmas - and you're right! However it definitely isn't too early to start looking into beauty Advent calendars. Quite the contrary as the best of them are already sold out!


Outfit: Patches and Graffiti

It has been getting quite girly here lately with my last outfit posts. So I thought I'd go back to something casual again. And what's more casual than a boyfriend jeans? You might remember that I customized mine last spring (here's the DIY tutorial). How good that patches will still be a thing in fall/winter! Something else that's still a trend is 90s layering, i.e. plain white shirts under a camisole or slip dress. For a little touch of elegance I combined it all with my pointed flats and my all time favourite bucket bag. As for the scenery we chose some awesome graffiti that popped up in Luxembourg city some weeks ago. How do you like the look?


Lux Fashion Week 2016

Lux Fashion Week Arlon 2016

I have been waiting for it all summer long and last Friday it finally took place: The second edition of the Lux Fashion Week runway in Arlon. To refresh your memory: The Lux Fashion Week 'défilé' was held for the first time last year, featuring 9 really talented Belgian designers. The location for the fashion show was, just like this year, an old train depot.
