Shark Attack Loves... // Primark Summer 2015

PrimarkSummer154
Now that summer is almost upon us, my inbox is exploding with the press releases of the newest summer collections. One of them caught my eye immediately... the Primark Summer 2015 collection! Since the nearest store is about an hour drive away from here, I don't go shopping there very often; which I always regret, because I see tons of cute Primark stuff on other blogs. That's why I'm thrilled to say that a Primark store will open in Hasselt, close to my home town, very soon! 

Anyway, it's time to go back to the main topic of this blogpost. Primark's summer collection is divided into two themes: Desert Dreamer (imagine a bohemian girl living in the 70s) and Ibiza Surf (aka the cutest beach wear I have seen in a long time and very Ibiza proof indeed). Fringe, lace, colorful prints... Primark had some themes in mind and went for them 100%. For the moment, there's nothing I can do other than crossing my fingers and hoping that the store in Hasselt will open soon and that I will be able to score my favorite items. Or I might have to plan a trip to Li├Ęge after all.

I thought it would be fun to share my favorite images and looks of the collection on the blog; it's always fun to discover (and hopefully score) a wish listed item or to get inspired for this summer, isn't it? My favorite items is the brick red dress in the picture above, the white lace see through dress, the black fringed skirt and top and the gorgeous playsuit with lace 'wings'. Love!

Review // Yves Saint Laurent Couture Mono Eyeshadow In '07 Caftan'

YvesSaintLaurentCaftan4
About the Couture Mono eyeshadows on the Yves Saint Laurent website:

"Yves Saint Laurent presents all day wear and the highest chromatic power, now in 16 iconic shades. No crease, no migration, only intense color pay off that makes a statement. Available in matte, satin, metallic and shimmer finishes. Presented in an elegant gold compact with two applicators - a foam tip for blending and a brush for precision - ensure effortless color control. "

I'm not the best when it comes to applying eyeshadow - I usually go for some mascara and eyeliner - but I do follow a lot of beauty bloggers. So, I've managed to pick up some tips here and there and when I received a gem from the Couture Mono collection by Yves Saint Laurent, I thought it was time to put these tips to use. Want to know more? Click below to see my review and an eye look that I created. 

EYESHADOW: Yves Saint Laurent Couture Mono '07 Caftan'

The Yves Saint Laurent Couture Mono collection is now available in stores ($ 30 / € 28,35 - 2,8 g).

This product was sent to me by a PR company / brand.

Lifestyle // Discover The Neuhaus Duo Chocolates

Neuhaus5
"What's your flava? Tell me what's your flava?" I'm sorry, but Craig David's song immediately came to my mind when I started to write this post. The Belgian chocolate house Neuhaus created a new type of chocolate called the Duo and I was lucky enough to try them. Binging on chocolate for the blog? I've had worse. Not only was Neuhaus founded in 1857 (over 150 years ago, say what!) but they are also the official trader for our royal family, which makes it safe to say that you know you've got some pretty good chocolate in your hands.

Being the total sweet tooth that I am, I was more than willing to help the Neuhaus team out. From the moment that the mailman delivered the box of Neuhaus Duo chocolates to my house, my family immediate took a jump to claim them. The deal I had to make with them? I was allowed to try one of each and had to leave what's left for them. Totally unfair. Anyway, I tried them out and I'm telling you what's my flava after the jump.

If you're planning to visit a Neuhaus store for yourself, have a look here. They have 1500 selling points in 5 continents, so I'm sure that there's one around for everyone.

The Neuhaus Duo collection will be in stores from 7 April 2015 for a limited period of time.
