Confirmed: time flies when you’re having fun! I’m a little over a month in London now and the weeks are seriously flying by so fast I’m trying to keep up with discovering this city before it’s June and I have to go back to Belgium #sadface. There’s a lot to discover beauty wise, so let’s dive into this new Instagram Photos post!
Instagram Photos #49
Let’s start this Instagram Photos with a beautiful breakfast! I recently (re)discovered breakfast jars as being the best thing ever. You just make them the evening before, or if you’re in a real #foodprep mood, you can make several jars in the weekend for those quick mornings where you might not have enough time. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, people! Don’t skip it!

The benefit of temporarily living in another country? Trying out makeupbrands you don't have at home! ? Excited to try the @nyxcosmetics Wonderstick today! ?? #nyxcosmetics #wonderstick #contour #highlight #anverelleLondon @nyxbelgium PS: Sorry for my absence lately, I'm fighting off the last symptoms of the flu ???
I first got to know NYX Cosmetics via Instagram and last year I discovered that they’re coming to Belgium while browsing their products at Estetika in Brussels! While I patiently wait until we can purchase these awesome products in my country, I’m keeping my eyes on their counter in Selfridges, London! I couldn’t resist and purchased my first NYX product: the Wonderstick! Curious what I thought about it? Review coming soon…
Spring is coming, but I’m not sure if my skin is ready for that yet. #snowwhite So I might need a little help before I can go bare-legged. Luckily, the new glow oil by Hand Chemistry is going to help me with that! This self tanning oil is without DHA, which is certainly a good thing. Stay tuned for an in-dept review where I explain everything about DHA and this self tanning dry oil!
So who's in London and wants to do an afternoon tea with me?! ??? ・・・ When beauty & brassiere collide – thanks all those who attended our #BobbixBalthazar launch party yesterday. The 'Vintage Red For Balthazar' Lip Color by @bobbibrownuk on sale now @bobbibrownuk ??? #afternoontea #lipstick #style #beauty #cakes #launchparty #coventgarden #repost ? @ellesophie
Beauty news combined with food. Couldn’t get any better! Bobbi Brown has teamed up with Balthazar London to create an eyecatching afternoon tea. For £25 you get loads of treats, including the ones that look like a foundation stick and a shimmer brick! And as a little extra, you can get the limited edition “Vintage Red” lipstick for £20 online or at their Covent Garden Studio only! Yours truly is certainly going to give that a try! ;-)
HAPPY SATURDAY! ? Finally got to wear my @gerardcosmetics #1995lipstick and I absolutely love it! ? • F A C E : @drjartth BB Beauty Balm @bobbibrown Corrector Extra Light Bisque @maybellinebelgium Instant Anti Age Concealer @nyxbelgium Wonderstick in Light/Medium @catrice.cosmetics Defining Blush 040 • E Y E S & B R O W S : @esteelauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara @makeupforeverbelgium Aqua Brow 20 • L I P S : @gerardcosmetics 1995 lipstick @maccosmetics Brick lip pencil
If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of make-up wise, it’s lipstick. It’s so versatile and there are just so many gorgeous colours out there! A couple of weeks ago I ordered my first Gerard Cosmetics liptrio online and I must say: I’m in love! Especially their 1995 lipstick is THE BOMB. It’s my new favourite colour! <3
And I’ll end this Instagram Photos post with a quote that has really gotten stuck in my head:
Little girls with dreams become women with vision.
This quote just means so much to me. I’ve had to keep on going for loads of things the past month, not giving up my dreams. I’ve started to see clearly what my goals and dreams are. And when you finally nail one of these dreams, it just means the world to you. And you’re worth it! I promise.
