S u n d a y

What sundays are for right? Playing with your makeup, lighting your a sweet scented yankee candle - vanilla cupcake - and taking pictures for the blog! I'm still in my PJ's with coconut oil as a face and hair mask, so you can imagine how glamorous I really am, haha!

I'm waiting for my boyfriend to finish working on some papers so we can finally finish watching season 8 of Dexter! I can't wait for our little binge watching session tonight, hopefully we will watch the final episode before midnight hah!

Wishlist ⎟ Wedding bells

 I'm getting ready for the wedding I'm going to attend in two weeks. I'm super excited, I LOVE weddings. I can't stop thinking about it, haha! I love getting dressed up, the 'love is in the air' mood and the party of course. As I told you, I've really struggled to find the perfect dress. After looking all week long for -the- dress, I've resigned myself and picked a floral co-ords from Warehouse. It's quite decent, with no cleavage so I think it's wedding appropriate. To make sure I won't look too granny-ish I'll pair this co-ord with some sexy nude strappy sandals from Zara, my favorite pink Mac lipstick in Angel, false lashes from Eylure and Essie blanc on my nails. Yes, I'm already prepared for the special day haha, that's the control freak in me. For the hair, I think I'll go for a sleek look, very classic and sophisticated. If it rains, I might do a low ponytail! Thank god I have an appointment with my hair dresser in a week to fix my blonde hair. My blonde is getting so yellow and my roots need to get done. Hopefully she will transforms my hair into LC's!

What do we think ladies? Do you like the whole co-ord trend?



Glow & pink lips

Hi girls! I'm finally starting to feel better, thank god. I'm still super tired because of the painkillers but I'm getting there! I'm not doing anything special today, a little bit of online shopping and cleaning the apartment as it's pouring rain outside. I think I might even make myself a hot's that bad!I have to attend a wedding in two weeks and I couldn't find a proper dress. I finally went for a floral co-ord, I can't wait it to arrive. Co-ords are wedding appropriate, right? It's quite lengthy and covered so I think yes!

Onto the lipstick subject now, here's are my two most fancy lipsticks. 'Boy' from Chanel and YSL  Rouge Volupté N°1. These are always in my bag because 1- they look so fancy 2- the colors are perfect on a daily basis. When I purchase high end makeup I tend to chose safe colors! 

Have a lovely saturday!

On my nails ⎜Rose exubérant

Hi girls! I'm still at home today trying to recover from my horrible headache which is actually due to a nerve being to between muscle in my neck. Great! I'm under pain killers and trying to rest in bed. I can even stay on the computer for that long or read a book because that means having to focus and then the headache will be kicking in even harder! Oh boy... 

I just wanted to show you my favorite pink nail polish of all time - I apologize for the horrible chubby fingers.  Rose Exubérant has been my favorite fuchsia pink shade for a year. It's one of those basics that you need in your life, you see what I mean! Chanel doesn't have the best quality of nail polishes but their bottles look so adorable on my makeup table I just can't help myself! Haha. 

Have a great day!

New in for fall ♥︎

 I don't know how you feel about fall but I'm slightly obsessing over it these days. The weather has been dreadful for a summer month, I've never been so cold in mid-August so all I have been thinking about is fall shopping. I just received my new pointed booties from  - best way to cheer one up when having a horrible day. I'm obsessed with them, I have been looking for a pair like this for ages now. The faux croco detail is to die for! Faux croco is one of the biggest man repeller on earth  but I have been into that whole animal print trend! I'm not sure they're going to be the most comfy boots but it's ok I'll get over that if it makes a great outfit! 

Next on my fall shopping list, is a gorgeous Zara burgundy bag (here) that I mentioned in a previous wish list. How pretty? I'm craving burgundy and khaki for this fall so this bag is right up my alley!

Have you already been fall shopping?

Weekend laziness

Hi girls! I've had a very cosy weekend due to horrible headache that has been kicking in really hard. I have barely slept, it's so painful! I never had such a horrible headache in my life, ever. So today I had to stay home and call the doctor, I'm waiting patiently and hope that he will help me. I seriously can't take it anymore. I need sleep and to be headache free. Who knew headache could be SO painful that it could prevent you from sleeping? Sighs...

This weekend I felt super lazy and didn't do anything really interesting besides cleaning the flat, browsing some online stores for a closet revamp for fall and watching Dexter.  I'm already at season 6, it's so good I can't stop thinking about it. Crazy how addicted you can become to a tv show, right? 

I'm also trying to organize everything I must do as soon a possible in a to do list or else I just keep forgetting about doing it or postponing it. 

That's pretty much it...#wildlife right? Haha. 
I'm back in my bed trying to rest before heading to the doctor. 
Have a lovely monday!

Haul ⎟Yankee Candle

Hello girls! I'm officially a Yankee Candle converted. After my first order about six months ago, my stock was running low so I had to place an other order. Yes, they're a little bit on the pricey side but so worth it in my opinion. A large jar can last for a good 6 months, using it regularly and the scent is not fading away with the hours like other - cheaper -  candles. The scent is not overpowering - at least  those I've tried so far!

The thing I like to do is to get two large jar of my favorite scents - Clean cotton and Soft Blanket : the perfect clean yet sweet scentsthen I picked a lot of wax tarts to try new scents so for my next order I know if I need an other large jar. The wax tarts are really not expensive so it's a good deal to try out new scents. This time I got : fresh cut roses, strawberry buttercream, honey glow, ginger dusk and vanilla cupcakes - I had to add some 'normal scents' like honey glow & ginger dusk to the girly mix for the boyfriend. I think Vanilla Cupcake and Christmas Cookie will be my next large jar purchase right in time for Christmas, the scents are so sweet! 

I order my candles from, the shipping cost is not that crazy for Belgium and pretty fast!

Do you have any favorite Yankee Candle scent?

Wishlist ⎟Autumn thoughts

autumn thoughts

Zara bag (here) // Zara hat (here) // H&M duster coat
 Yankee Candle Soft Blanket // Zara boots (here)

I can't believe I'm actually craving fall at the moment. It's only mid-august and I call think about is chunky khaki sweater, a new pair of black boots, lighting up candles everywhere, crispy leaves, burgundy accessory and hats. I blame it on the weather!

It has been raining all day and it's a public holiday today in Belgium so I'm just lying all cosy in my bed, watching tv-shows and scrolling through Zara and Asos to spot some ideas for this fall. Is it too early to start fall shopping? I can't even look at sandals and summer skirts. I crave dark colors and warm outfits. I know I'll regret saying this by mid-november as as soon as it gets cold and grey I'm just over it and crave spring all over again.

Also, this fall will be even more exciting for me as I'm now blonde so I'm going to be experimenting more with colors, dark lipsticks etc. And it's also my birthday in a month, I'm super excited as I'll be off work for a week and going to Disneyland Paris! I have so many great things planned for my week off,  I'm counting down the days!

I'll try to blog this afternoon as I have a lot of new things to show you.

On my nails ⎪Eugène Malibu

Hi girls, just a little post of some cute nail polishes  I have received a while ago from The Monthly Nails. They sent me 2 nail polishes from the brand Eugene Malibu which I have never heard of before. The packaging is very much up my alley, very etsy-looking. I'm not very fond of sparkly nail polishes anymore but from time to time I still like to get super sassy with my nail polish and go sparkly! My favorite one of the bunch is the purple one. On top of white nail polish is look super cool, isn't it? The other one tends to go super orange which looks super awful on my nails for some reason. You know those colors that doesn't look good on you....ever. Yeah, that! 

You can get them here at The Monthly Nail website.
