Wishlist ⎪In with the new

in with the new

1. Zara sweater basic (here) / 2. Nike Air Force 1 / 3. Zara statement necklace (here)
 4. New Look leopard espadrilles (here) / 5. Mango biker denim jacket (here

I don't know about you girls, but I'm d.o.n.e with summer sale. Done with messy clothes, messy stores, 2011 old collections (Yes H&M, I'm looking at you!). All I want is the stores to get can to normal so I can actually venture myself in it and have a proper shopping sesh, without the frantic people everywhere looking for 'the last piece'. I have been shopping online for this whole month, I can't even deal with how people get during summer sale - you could get push for a frumpy t-shirt, that's how tense it gets. Also, end of summer sale means one thing = fall collections arriving! My favorite fashion time of the year. I can wait to see what will be in stores for this fall, I'm already dreaming about that perfect coat I'll get!

Until then, here's my wish list. I'm getting a bit hood as you can see with those Nike Air Force 1. They're gorgeous although I never thought in a million years I would wear such trainers but must imagine it paired with a simple pair of jeans, a grey t-shirt, a statement necklace and a blazer. The casual hood chic look! Also I die to get this Mango jacket but it's nowhere to be found in the stores apparently you must order it online. This jacket is the perfect combination of denim rock sophistication! Also on my list, this gorgeous Zara Necklace and those  leopard espadrilles from New Look. A girl always needs a little leopard in her life, right?

I hope you liked this wish list, now I'm off to read my new book 'The Secret' then I'll probably binge on the second season of Orange is The Black all weekend long whilst shopping online :)

The Balm ⎪How 'bout them apples?



The Balm has done it again. The cutest palette out there! How 'bout them apples is their new lip & cheek palette filled with creamy nude and more bright shades. The texture of these blushes/lipsticks are amazing! I much prefer using these as cream blushes for the glowy finish and the high pigmentation. As lipsticks although they're pretty - dot get me wrong -  they are not as long lasting as I wish they were. 

This palette is everything I have been wanting for a long time. A versatile cream blush palette, with a cute packaging, a good quality and some wild half naked cow boys all over my blushes. I mean, what more can you ask for? It's the perfecto travelling palette too. If you're into cream blushes, you need to get your hands on this little baby. It's available at Di drugstores in Belgium 

What do we think girls?

Disappointing products #5



Nothing like a negative post on a rainy monday morning, right? Haha I'm not into complaining posts but from time to time you must set the record straight and tell how you really feel about some products although it might be a little be harsh.

The first product that has let me down is the Bioderma Hydrabio Brume. I bought this with high hopes to find a good refreshing soothing water for summer, to apply on my skin in the morning or after taking up my makeup to sooth my skin. Unfortunately this product is making my skin feeling even drier and itchier than it normally is. Won't recommend this unless you have a very oily skin.

The next product on the disappointing list is the Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel. I tried this a good 3 months ago, it was winter and my feet were in pretty bad shape. I was sent this to try as it's meant to peel you skin off all of the dead cells and leave your skin brand new, just like babies feet! It's such a weird process, you must put a cream all over your feet for an hour with a plastic sock that activates the product. After an hour, you just rinse the cream and wait for a week to see the results. One week after my feet started to peel like a snake losing its skin. It was plain gross and I was really shocked to see all the dead skin. The result was impressive as my feet were really smooth and looking brand new. I was so happy with the results until I started to feel that my feet were becoming overly sensitive. This product was so harsh on my poor feet it made them become super sensitive. I regret trying this product and I don't recommend you trying it. It's working but it's way too harsh for your skin!

Last on the list, the Freeman Feel Beautiful Facial Peel-Off Mask Cucumber. I usually love the Freeman masks range but this one is so awful. It's a peel off mask and it feels like glue on the skin. I don't see the point of peel off masks, my skin doesn't feel refreshed or cleaned after. Maybe it's just the peel off sensation that's not working for me though!

Which products have let you down recently?

Instalife #28



Hi girls! The lack of creative and actual proper post are getting a bit obvious, so I'm trying to let you know that I'm still here, working a lot but still here loving lipstick and fake tan! I'm thinking about doing a fake tan routine post or video maybe as my routine has been giving me some amazing tanning results, I feel ready for summer! Let me know if you'd be interested in hearing that!

Here's a little bit of my instalife, don't forget to follow me as it's the place where I basically show sign of life every day! I eat, breathe and live Instagram. I haven't been super crazy on the sales but I go a few bits and bots - those gorgeous Zara heels are a part of it  and they'll look super Norvegian-ish cool with a maxi skirt and a crop top! Yes Cath In The City is one of my biggest inspiration ever!

Hope you're all well!

Lots of love,

Marilou

C R E A M Y


Happy sunday! Sorry for the lack of post, obviously my hectic work schedule has been in the way and I feel the weekend is going by super quickly I barely have the time to catch up with my favorite tv shows, take care of my skin, relax and my weekend is basically gone! I can't even take pictures in the morning to show you some make up of the day as I wake up super early and live the apartment in 40min watch in hand. The joy of working full time, right?

Anyway, here's are my favorite cream blusher I have been loving lately. I'm a huge cream blusher aficionado as I love that extra glow touch it gives to my makeup. My favorite are the ones from Topshop as they're really long lasting and the colors are simply beautiful! I also have been using my Mac Lady Blush a lot as you can see! I love Mac cream blushes as they're more on the natural looking color palette but I do regret the fact that they're range is quite small and doesn't change with the years, a bit boring! Finally, the Illamasqua one is the most gorgeous baby pink cream blusher ever. Unfortunately I think this one is discontinued but if you're looking for a super blowy cream blusher, Illamasqua has super a gorgeous range!

Summer sales whishlist ♥︎



It's that time of the year again! Yasssssssss!
Summer sales are just around the corner and I'm ready to shop! I have a few things on my wish list but as usual when you have sales in a shop you always end up buying unnecessary things. This year I really want to stick up to my wish list - yeah, right - and the first thing I was dying to get was this H&M midi black skirt with animal print on it. I actually have found it last week during pre-sales at H&M. I was so happy but the size is a bit too big so I'll have to take care of that. I also am super obsessed with these Zara platform sandals, they're super chic and will go perfecty with the midi dress. Hopefully Zara will put them on sales otherwise...I'll still get them I think haha. I also need some maxi dresses for summer, some snake spring espadrilles and this pearl necklace from Zara which I highly doubt I'll ever find but you never know... 

What is on your list this year?
