Decluttering My Nail Polish Collection

Hello everyone! Long time, no blogpost. I've been having a serious case of writer's block: lack of ideas and no time to write. Two weeks ago, my first internship of the year started, so I don't have time to write during the day and I'm too late back at my studio in Ghent to take photos. So I'm really sorry, I miss blogging a lot and have so many ideas... I just need to find the time to write them all down. But let's start today with a new blog post!

My name is Astrid and I'm a nail polish addict. *Hello Astrid*
But seriously, things got out of hand. I have four boxes of nail polish at home and one small box in Ghent. Ofcourse, I can't clean up the box in Ghent now but I decided to declutter the ones at home. I had lots of fun doing this. I started with a goal: downsizing to three boxes in stead of four.

Forward Helix Piercing: My Experience

Hello, sweet readers. Time for something completely different here on 'Truth About Cosmetics'. 3 weeks ago, I got my first piercing. Nothing too special or daring, I choose a forward helix piercing. I thought it would be interesting to tell about my experience with this piercing and how I take care of it.

Grocery Haul: Healthy Food & Snacks

A new school year has started for me (probably for a lot of you girls as well). With that new year, I want to make some changes in my way of working for school (more planning ahead, organising,...). But also, I want to make some changes in my way of eating. More vegetables, fruit and healthy snacks. I went to Albert Hein, which is a very nice supermarket with a wide variety of food. I found some lovely things, especially for breakfast. So, as a different type of blog post today, I'm going to do a grocery haul!

London Beauty Haul: Boots, Superdrug & TK Maxx

Hello, beauties! How are you guys all doing? Summer has been a busy time for me and I needed to sit myself down and take the time to blog. And god, I missed it! Last week, I went to London with my parents for three days. We did a lot of visiting, walking, eating and I got some time to shop as well.

Ofcourse, you can't go to England without some shopping at Boots and Superdrug. I also discovered TK Maxx, a store where you can find fashion and beauty items for a very low price!

Goed Gevoel Beauty Box August

If there is anyting I love, it's magazines deciding to include a Beauty Box with their issue. I missed the box that Goed Gevoel (a Belgian magazine) brought out in March. I was a bit sad about it, but in July, they brought out another one. I had not seen any advertisement about it, I just saw it at the paper shop one morning. I think it was about €5,99 extra for the box and I was so excited to discover what's inside. 

The box itself is so beautiful. It's pink with a flower print and the words 'Make you day a beautiful one'. I'm keeping this box for storage, for sure! 

When I opened the box, I was surprised to see that they had teamed up with Deauty! As you guys all know, I'm subscribed to the Deauty boxes. This increased my curiosity immediately.
