As I announced on my Facebook page and Instagram, this week’s Instagram Photos was going to be late because of some technical difficulties on the blog. But all is well now, so the posts that were overdue are now online! It was a tumultuous beginning of the month, which had it’s ups and downs. Let’s take a look on what Instagram Photos I posted the last two weeks:

It's fair to say that it's a little early to start shopping for Christmas gifts… ??But I wouldn't want to keep this all for myself, so I'm sharing this tip for our early shoppingbirds! ? @makeupforeverbelgium has some beautykits available that would make PERFECT Christmas presents! ??? Or Sinterklaas, whoever's your favourite! ?? #holidaytreasures #makeupforeverofficial #christmas #presents
Christmas is coming closer and closer! Make Up For Ever has made 6 Holiday kits ranging from € 22,50 – € 75, so there’s something for every budget! My eye caught the CULT MAKE UP Holiday Set: it has 5 mini’s and one full sized product. If you have friends who would love to try out MUFE make-up but don’t know what to get, this would be perfect!
November was also my birthday month! We decided to have breakfast at Alice Ghent. Ofcourse I had the sweet breakfast with lovely American pancakes. I was craving these all week!
Ugh, dirty brushes. They’re such a pain! Thanks to Primark, cleaning my brushes is so much quicker! I used to swirl them around on my hand, which made my hand feel superdry afterwards from all the soap… But then I bought a facial cleansing pad which I ended up using for not cleansing my face, but my brushes. Lol! Curious how exactly I get them clean? Click here to find out!
When yesterday morning I dropped my mom off at the station to go to Paris, I gave her a big hug and a kiss. Because you never know, right? Yesterday evening the first horrible and unimaginable shooting happened on a restaurant that was literally right around the corner of where my mom was dining. I never thought something like that would happen. Luckily, my mom is safe and will return home on Sunday. I feel so incredibly lucky that she's okay and safe. But there are many that won't return home safely. There are people out there that were people's sister, brother, father, mother, daughter, son, … that won't be able to hug their families and be back safe. My heart weeps for the people who have lost their lives yesterday, and my condolences to those who have lost someone yesterday. ?
The Paris shootings. I really wanted to include this in my week in Instagram Photos because it made such an impact on me. It’s better now, but the fact that my mom was a mere 100 metres away from the first restaurant shooting was downward petrifying. Afterwards we started to realise she was so lucky she got away safely, but I also realised that many others didn’t make it back home safely. For that reason, I really wanted to show my support. My heart goes out to everyone. <3
New in! ❤️ And yes, that's the beautypowder from the Cinderella collection by @maccosmetics ? I went to a special sale and I just had to get it! ? The Haute and Naughty mascara was also on my wishlist, so I guess it was a lucky day! I also got a beautiful pink liptrio by @bobbibrown and I am in love. ❤️? #makeup #mac #bobbibrown #lipstick #highlighter #mascara
Yaaay, new goodies! I had the occasion to go to a special sale and I managed to cross off two items that were on my wishlist: the Cinderella Beauty Powder and the Haute and Naughty mascara from MAC. I also bought an absolutely gorgeous liptrio from Bobbi Brown which is currently my favourite lipcombo. Absolutely love love love the pinks!
Hey, pssst! ? Some awesome news today: @urbandecaycosmetics is coming to Ghent! ? And just in time for our Christmas shopping! ? Mark your calendar for the 26th of November @ 9.30 AM and be there or be square… ? First 50 customers get a free Naked Basics palette for free! ? #urbandecaygent #makeupwithanedge #urbandecayBE
And lastly, Urban Decay decided to land in my hometown! I haven’t visited yet, but I’m sure the stand is as stunning as the one in Antwerp, which I did visit for it’s opening. I definitely feel that lots of brands not only feel the pull of Brussels and Antwerp, but are choosing to open a store in Ghent too. Which is absolutely a good thing, because as much as I love visiting Antwerp (for my sweet boyfriend and awesome shoppingtrips!) it’s nice to have some cool shops here too :-) Go Ghent!
Did you visit the Urban Decay stand in the ICI Paris XL in Ghent (Korenmarkt) yet? What did you think?
