How to style a 20s look

How to adapt a style to your personal look – 20s makeup

Once a year, I go to a ball. A proper ball. They always have mottoes, and this year, it was ‘The Golden 20s’. I was ecstatic at first – who wouldn’t love to dress up as Daisy from The Great Gatsby? So I got a dress, shoes, jewellery… And then, so I thought, came the fun part. The makeup. And it got slightly complicated. Read on for my easy 20s makeup look how-to!READ MORE

chill-out tips for anxiety

The chill-out routine that’s better than a bath

A while back, we were contacted by esalon to write a post about our chill-out routine, and I thought it’d be a nice idea. I had it all pictured out – a fluffy piece, like I was a chick lit heroine. You know the one: hot bath, wine or tea, soothing music, candles, the works. And then it dawned on me that I couldn’t write that. Fluffy pieces are totally fine.

decluttering tips for people who hate decluttering

Why I hate minimalism and 5 decluttering tips for people who don’t declutter

Hi, my name is Dorit and I hate minimalism and this whole declutter trend. I like buying stuff. I like owning stuff. I like having options. (Have a look at my pantry and you’ll see what I mean.) When it comes to makeup, I have way more than I can ever use up. Luckily, I also have a Room of My Own (read it at some point in your life, it’ll be worth it) and can store it easily. Luckily, too, my SO does support me and isn’t that kind of infuriating male that goes “why do you own that much makeup?!”. Nevertheless, once a year I like to go through my whole collection. Read on to see why, how and my decluttering tips for people who hate decluttering.

Becca Opal vs MAC Double-Gleam

New in: Two hyped highlighters from Becca and Mac (with application tips)

It’s the story of my life that I’m inevitably drawn to pretty powders (even more so if they’re embossed or come in a pretty compact), while at the same time I’m the most boring highlighter user ever. I also prefer my highlighters to be on the subtle side. If I don’t consciously remind myself that I own approximately twenty, I’d wear MAC’s Lightscapade day in, day out. So why did I ever think that Becca Opal and MAC’s Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double-Gleam would ever be for me?!READ MORE
