Hair Care Haul: Garnier, Dove and Pantene

Hey girls! I went to Kruidvat today because I needed a new pack of cotton pads to remove my makeup. But OFCOURSE, when you go to kruidvat, you can't leave without buying other stuff. A few brands had new launches of hair care products and I decided to try some things out. I got a conditioner, a serum and a mask.


When it comes to hair, I am really bad at taking care of it. It has gotten better, I sometimes put oil in it or put a hair mask on, but overall... I could do a better job. My hair dresser usually gives me a speech about how to take better care of my hair and I've decided to really do it this time because it's very dry and I have so many split ends.

M.A.C. 'Golden Hours' Mineralize Eyeshadow Review + Swatches

Hello sweeties! How are you today on this sunny monday? I'm back today with a review on the M.A.C. eyeshadow in 'Golden Hours'. I got this along with the 'Stereo Rose' Mineralize Skinfinish. It's part of the Fantasy of Flowers collection for spring. I looked at it in the store and the colors were right up my alley, so I decided to pick it up.

If you are wondering about the delicious Easter eggs lying next to the eyeshadow... Those were happily eaten by me (a)

Personal: Starting A Diary

Hey everyone! I'm here today with a short blogpost about something new I'm trying out, starting from today. I went to Hema last week and I found a very cute notebook. The words on the front of it made me buy it immediately and I'm very excited to do this!

'Make a note a day, every day. Write down an idea, a quote. Something to remember. And soon this will be your favorite book'

I want to remember more fun things of my life and that's why I decided to start writing some things down. I'll try to do this every day, to make it like a diary, but there might be days that I down write in it. I'll see how it goes.

Ofcourse, because a diary is very personal, I won't show you the things I write in here. But I will show you my first page. I decorated it a bit with some Washi tape (also from Hema) and I wrote down my name and favorite quote.

'Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day'
I really believe in this quote. There IS something good in every day, even if it is something very small like a compliment from someone or a hello from a stranger. Sometimes we forget about these little things and that's why I want to start writing in here. To remember good things. If I ever feel down in the future, I can read in here and maybe it will make me feel better again :)

Do you own a diary?
xx,
Astrid

M.A.C. 'Stereo Rose' Mineralize Skinfinish Review + Swatches

I walked by the M.A.C. store close my studio in Ghent yesterday and I saw the beautiful display of the 'Fantasy of Flowers' spring collection. I had read a few reviews about this collection and I wanted to check out the beautiful, famous mineralize skinfinish in 'Stereo Rose', which is a favorite of a lot of beauty lovers.

Stereo Rose is repromote. It first came out at the end of 2012. Now, it's important to know: the color has changed. Stereo Rose is a different, lighter color now. So if you were hoping to finally get your hands on the original color, keep in mind that this is another version.
