MY BIRTHDAY WISHLIST


A prepared woman makes lists, right?... hihi On the 18th of october is my birthday! I can't bealieve I'm turning 34 already!!! To be honnest my life looks a little different than what I expected it to be at almost 35 and believe me, I still haven't figured out the rest of my life yet. What I really found out is that I don't need to. I can just understand stuff as I go and be ok with it.

With time I learned to give more value to people and experiences than things and that's why I never celebrate my birthday with a traditional party anymore. I prefer to have some drinks with good friends and do something nice with the husband. Have been doing it for years and don't see any change coming to this tradition of my own any time soon.

IT'S FALL AND I WANT THEM ALL

The coziest time of the year has arrived! Time for hot drinks, apple pie and the nicest blankets. I love the change of weather and enjoy every opportunity to welcome the new season. I'm not quite ready for the tall boots yet, so ankleboots with a dress or skirt paired with a soft jumper will make most of my outfits. Once at home, a worm shower followed by a treat of a body cream and cozy socks will make my night.  I love adding little things to make every season special. What do you do to stay cozy?

ORGANIC SKINCARE ON A BUDGET - DR ORGANIC

 

Having sensitive skin can be not only a problem but definetly a big limitation as a beauty blogger wanting to try different products with every launch. Knowing that's not a possibility for me, I have to stick to what I know works for my skin.

After a bit of trial and error, I noticed that products with to much active ingredients and a strong artificial scentwill make my skin react. It's a fact. With this important peace of information on hand, I understood I can actually experiment and brouwse about as long as I keep it natural. Can I even say organic?


 

Dr Organic is a brand I've used before, but I've never ventured into their face products line. Now in search of something new that would not only calming but genuinely effective and not to expensive, I remembered the brand from a while ago and headed to my closest Holland & Barret (used to be De Tuinen) store.

I needed a serum in oil and a simple day cream as my skin tends to react to more complicated products. I choose the Rose Otto Facial Serum and the Organic Morrocan Argan Oil to take home with me and try. The oil I started using right away as I was out of any other facial oils os serums and my skin was feeling reather dry. This Rose Otto oil not only smels amazing but it's actually a mix of a lot of different oils to restore and hydrate the skin. It's really calming as well and I surely needed that!

When searching for a day cream I try to find something full yet not too heavy and the Argain Oil cream is just that. It's an intensive nutritious cream that's quick in absorbing into the skin. I've been using it day and night and my skin is loving it.

With high quality, I was surprised the Dr Organic products aren't the most expensive. The Rose Otto Facial Oil retails for €18,99 euros and the Morrocan Argan Oil day cream for €14,99 euros. They're often on sale and can be ordered online on Holland&Barret. You're welcome.




BUDGET ALLERT: STRAPPY FLATS



There's one designer item I've been crazy about for a couple years: the strappy flats. I love my classics and prefer to invest in those with a little twist. First time I saw something like this was the Valentino Rockstuds and I don't know about you, but I hold a normal job with normal income which makes it nearly impossible for me to spend so much money on a pair of shoes. That's why I searched high and low for some kind of substitute and this is what I found.

SUMMER 2016 BEAUTY MUST HAVES FROM LOOK FANTASTIC



With the Brexit situation thing going on last week - and still now - I had a moment of pannick thinking what would happen with my favorite webshops. Would they still be shipping wordlwide and specially for free? As we're leaving on vacation in a couple weeks (my latest excuse for any kind of purchase) I touhg it'd be a good idea to order a couple things I wanted to try for awhile and bring the vacation feel very very near. Be prepared for an overload of oils!
