Another year is over, the awesome reign of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015, Marsala, has come to an end and we’ve got two new reigning beauties, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Whaaaaaaa? Yup. 2016 is the year we’ve gotten two colours of the year at once for the first time. Let’s have a look at the colours, shall we, and I’ll also show you some products from my stash and inspiration to implement the new colours into your looks!READ MORE

Twindlytuesday: ten things you didn’t knew that Douglas carries (and are perfect gifts)

Douglas – similar to Sephora in France and the US – is most known to carry every item of makeup you might ever dream of. It’s been my go-to place for a lot of skincare and makeup I buy for a long time, but only for that. Whenever I shopped either online or in-store, I saw some other stuff from the corner of my eye, but I never bothered to look properly. Until last week that is, when I was sick and quite bored and decided to have a look at EVERY BRAND at the Douglas online shop. And I promise, minds will be blown at some of the things I found. (You can also use my list as a gift guide of some sort and use those vouchers and coupons!)READ MORE

Perfume 202: Interview outtakes and fun facts

Nevertheless, there was some interesting info left out, which is the reason I now present the outtakes from the original interview!
