Last saturday M.A.C Cosmetics took it to the next level with their new Holiday collection in theme of the Nutcracker. It was a full house in the M.A.C Cosmetics store in Brussels and I could really feel the Christmas vibe. The sight of these beautiful packaged products and bright colors were amazing. What makes this collection so special is that there are different kits available like for example the eye shadow palette I chose, a handy brush kit or the perfect shades of festive lipsticks. The ideal Christmas gift if you ask me! I had an amazing time with the wonderful Emma Gelaude meeting new people and getting our faces dolled up with the new collection! What’s your favourite product? Check out the candy coated gift guide here.
These are my favorite items : The nutcracker Eye shadow palette called ‘sweet smokey eye compac‘ in bronze colors because I think it matches best with my skin tone and it’s ideal for my everyday make-up look. Next in line is the highlighter because I love to highlight all the good things in life, including my cheekbones.
Bloggers always have to be on top of the latest trends.. Or that’s what I hear. I’m not wearing clothes because it’s a trend but because I like them and they suit me. However I’m totally digging this sweatpants trend! To be honest I was looking for a new kind of pants (we’ve had the culottes and the ripped jeans) that could brighten up my outfit. I saw these last week and bought them in different colors. Comfy and sporty in this post but I’m also wearing them with heels for more classy occasions. To be honest, I wasn’t planning on taking pictures that day because I wasn’t feeling well and I thought my outfit wasn’t that special but hey, we don’t always have to look like we’re on a runway right?!
There’s a new JD Sports store in town! And this time I’m not talking about Antwerp, I’m talking about Brussels. During the opening there were so many people and so much to see. I got this full look, head to toe, from the brands Hype, Adidas and Nike. What do you think? It took me a little by surprise to see how extensive their offer is. The collections aren’t the typical ones you’ve seen a thousand times. Like I already said, I’m wearing Hype Patch Fleece Pants and Hype Crop Sweatshirt. I was going for the full beige look at first because I like the one-color-suits but this orange(-brownish) color was a better match with my skin. The Nike cap is a classic item you just have to have. I wear it whenever I have a bad hair day (which is a lot these days) or just when it rains (also a lot..). I’ve wanted these Adidas Originals Gazelle sneakers for a while but could never decide over the color. Baby blue it is!
I’m also wearing the Denim Truckerjacket by Tommy Hilfiger – from the Tommy Jeans collection. You can find it here.
These picture are taken by the lovely Billie Gielen! We had a great time and I’m sure this isn’t the last time we’ll work together!
So as I already mentioned in previous posts, I finally graduated. I have my master in Product development so I’m ready for the next step. To start this new chapter in my life I have to make some hard decisions and that scares me a little. I’m not sure what I have to do because I have more than one dream. Fashion is one of them, that’s no surprise. I feel like I want to travel the world, I haven’t seen much and there’s no better time than the present to go discover it all. I also have to think about my future and my ambitions to build a good career. That’s what I’m still figuring out these days, how to combine all the things that I love. I’m also going to expand my subjects I write&blog about. Next to fashion I’m also adding beauty and travel!
You can’t go to Paris and don’t take a picture at the Louvre right? Even if it’s a touristic place I still love it. It’s the place to be to spot the fashion people during fashion week. It’s also close to Les Tuileries where a lot of fashion shows are held. I find it such an inspiring event that motivates me to work even harder to eventually find my way in this world.
Being a sneaker freak doesn’t mean I don’t love wearing classis boots from time to time. I’ve noticed that my style is changing again and it’s because of the season changes. During Autumn/winter my style becomes more classic and minimalistic. Do you like my faux fur multi colored fluff bag? It’s like my little pet!

Oops I forgot about this post. Another look from my stay in Berlin during the Bread&&Butter event. Zalando organized a shoot for every influencer staying in the Zalando Summer house. First we had our hair and make-up done and second we got to pick our own outfit from the Zalando showroom. That’s where I found these glitter shoes from River Island! When it comes to shoes and accessories I love River Island. Although their heels are always way too high for me, these babies are perfect and super comfortable. The pleated skirt is a trend I’m still working on. I’m not sure if it suits me or not but I figure if it’s a high waist, it’ll look good. What do you think of the color of this skirt? Too orange?

A full white look with some heavy black boots underneath. When you say it like that it sounds so wrong but I think you determine your own rules and a white look in the autumn/winter is perfectly possible. In fact I’m still buying (off-) white clothes but in different fabrics than during the summer, we don’t want to freeze to death right. These DMsLITE boots by Dr. Martens are super light and easy to wear. A shoe is the first thing I decide on when picking my outfit and these are always on top of my list. What do you think of the combination between a light white outfit and these heavy boots?
