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.

SWEATPANTS ON.

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?!

ADIDAS x RAINS

Who says raincoats aren’t cool? They’re making a comeback for sure and this one was on my list for a long time! Good fit and quality, I’m thinking about getting another one in a different color. Can’t have too many coats in this rainy Belgium. Another thing that was on my list for a very long time now are these white Nike Huarache sneakers! They were sold out and I had to wait a long long time.. really testing my patience right there but it was so worth it! They don’t leave my side anymore. And last but not least, another great piece of the Adidas collection!! I’m not cheating on Nike because I’m still a real Nike sneaker-addict but for clothing I go to Adidas! leger3

Easy breezy.

Hi guys, here’s a post all about the basics! An oversized shirt combined with some leather pants and Stan Smith sneakers are always a win-win. Natural make-up, &hair and some fine jewelry to top it all of. This will probably be one of the last posts without a coat, scarf or hat because winter’s coming! Can’t wait to wear my new winter coat though. Stay tuned for this beauty, it’ll be worth your while.

FOOTBALL IN HEELS // 74

It’s been a while since I wore my glasses and although I like them I’m not the biggest fan of wearing glasses in general (not even sunglasses). It botters me that there’s a glass in between when I’m talking to someone  so I tend to take them off. It’s probably just a matter of habit. Now that my hair is short and school is starting again I’ll probably wear them more often, it makes me look smarter don’t you think? This look is kind of a contradiction between classy and sporty. The glasses and heels are elegant but the Tshirt and pants are sporty. Since I’m not the type who belongs just in one category I tend to mix it up a bit. This Tshirt is one of my favorites and is a souvenir from a small store in Berlin, a.k.a Shopping paradise! These pants are also on my most worn list because I’ve been looking for a model like this for so long but never found the right shape or fabric. Heels are often not comfortable and these are no exception! I just wear heels when I’m going out to dinner so that I have to take 5 steps, sit down, eat my meal and let my feet rest and then go  home after a few glasses of wine which is when you don’t even feel your feet that much.

OBEY

1OBEY Clothing was founded on the art, design and ideals of Shepard Fairey. The OBEY campaign is rooted in the Do It Yourself counterculture of punk rock and skateboarding, but it has also taken cues from popular culture, commercial marketing and political messaging.
I for myself am a big fan of the brand and hope to expand my collection  with more of where this came from. I’ve had my eye on this piece for a long time now so you can imagine how glad I was to find it in Berlin in a store called Kickz! The latest addition to my Nike collection is also from this store, all the more reason to go back some day!

Snapback – OBEY
Sneakers – NIKE air force one
Trench coat – H&M
Bag – &other stories

Essentiel is essential

There’s not much to say about this look. Baggy yet sexy, one of my favourite combo’s.
With the weather switching all the time it’s hard to find the perfect coat so layering is one solution, the fashionable one!
The bag and scarf are Essentiel, one of my favourite brands! My wishlist is based on their whole SS14 collection.
Go take a look – https://www.essentiel-antwerp.com/be_nl

In a mean time, I’m off to Berlin, my 4th city this year! Enjoy your holidays ladies

Silver lining

For those who love platforms, these silver babies are to die for! They’re very comfortable and you’re still taller without having sore feet! Perfect for a city trip or a day of shopping!

Normally I always wear long coats, they’re classy  and if you style it well it can be the finishing touch of your outfit! But every now and then you need to change a bit and this coat is casual chic and warm at the same time! Platform sneakers and a short jacket, it’s almost like my leggs look longer 😉
