The Body Shop Honey & Oat 3-in-1 Moisturizing Scrub Mask

I think I have found my favorite scrub/face mask ever. The weather here in Belgium has been very weird lately: one day the sun is shining, the other it's pouring rain and than it's freezing. My skin can't keep up. It's been feeling a bit dry. While I was in Amsterdam, we went inside the body shop and they were busy training new employees. They asked us if we were interested in some skin care advice. I had a very sweet employee and she told be about this great face mask. I decided to try it out and it is amazing!

Challenge: 40 Days Without Meat #Dagenzondervlees

My favorite dish is spaghetti Carbonara. I love steak with pepper sauce. Domino's pizza with chicken, tomatoes and pepperoni is one of my greatest loves and Sushi. Just Sushi. The word says enough. So this might come as a shock to some people: I'm not eating meat for 40 days. 

Why am I doing this?
Too be honest, I have no idea. I went to the supermarket monday and I saw some delicious veggie burgers and I saw hummus and I bought A LOT of fruit. I really wanted to buy healthy stuff. When I came home, I noticed I hadn't gotten any meat. Pure coincidence, I admit. So I thought: Okay, I'll do a veggie week. Last night, I was watching TV and I saw that today, February 10, an organization in Belgium called 'Dagen Zonder Vlees' (Days Without Meat) started their annual meat-less 40 days. And was just like: Why not?
I want to eat more healthy and experiment more with veggies. I usually make paprika's or courgettes when I'm at my studio in Ghent. Delicious, yes, but it's time to explore more. I love vegetables and eat every single one of them, I just want to be more creative in my dishes.  

The days without meat challenge started today and will end March 26. Will I succeed?

Huge Kiko Haul: First Impressions & Swatches

After a month of exams, group assignments and classes, there is finally time to blog again! One of my resolutions this year was to blog regularly again but there was just no time. Until know: I have a week of vacation! Time to get back into the blog life! January was a very good month because... there were sales EVERYWHERE. So I went a little nuts here and there. I discovered that there was a Kiko store in Brussels (Since when? AND why wasn't this front page news here?) so I paid a little visit. I love browsing the sale sections and scored a few nice goodies. A lot of things were sold out already so I also paid the web shop a visit. Today, I can finally talk about everything. Here we go!

Time to Recycle: Empties #10

2015 is almost coming to an end, so it's time for the last empties post of the year! Empties are still my favorite post to write and read. This time, there are a few products included that seriously disappointed me, I'm happy to get rid of them. Other products are favorites.

Nail of the Day: OPI 'I Sing In Color'

Winter is the perfect time for dark, vampy nail colors. After having my nail polish-free for almost a month and a half now, it was time to provide them with a color. Today, that is OPI's 'I Sing In Color' from the Gwen Stefani collection. Kruidvat was having a sale on a selection of OPI colors this weekend and I got this shade for €5,99 only.
