Win // Filmticket 'The Choice' + Make Up Set

*This give away is for my Belgian readers only. There will be more international give aways soon!*

Om het Valentijnsweekend goed in te zetten, hebben Shark Attack en Entertainment One de handen in elkaar geslagen om een leuke give away te organiseren! Vanaf 17 februari 2016 speelt The Choice in the cinemazalen, een film die gebaseerd is op het gelijknamige boek van Nicholas Sparks. De auteur schreef eerder al bestsellers als The Notebook, Dear John en Safe Haven.

In The Choice volg je het leven van Travis (Benjamin Walker), wiens leven drastisch verandert wanneer hij zijn nieuwe buurvrouw Gabby (Teresa Palmer) ontmoet. Travis en Gabby worden smoorverliefd op elkaar; een beslissing die niet zonder consequenties blijft, waardoor het koppel voor enkele moeilijke keuzes staan. Verder ga ik niet te veel verklappen! Je kan in het einde van de artikel de trailer vinden, waarin je alvast een voorproefje van de film te zien krijgt.

Lijkt deze film je wel wat? Dat komt dan goed uit, want wij geven aan één winnaar / winnares één filmticket en een make up setje cadeau! Het filmticket is vanaf 17 februari (de releasedatum) 4 weken geldig. In het make up setje, waarvan Artdeco zo vriendelijk was om deze beschikbaar te stellen, kan je een mascara, een concealer en een oogschaduw primer vinden. 

Wat moet je doen om aan deze win actie deel te nemen?

1. Wat is het meest romantische dat jou tot nu toe ooit is overkomen? Laat een comment achter met jouw meest romantische herinnering en ik kies er de leukste uit.
2. Vermeld in de comment ook jouw naam en email adres.

Zo simpel is het! De wedstrijd eindigt op 15 februari om middernacht. De winnaar / winnares krijgt op dinsdag 16 februari een mailtje van mij in zijn / haar mailbox.

Alvast heel veel succes!

Beauty // MAC x Zac Posen Collection

Leave it to MAC to keep on creating collections that will crash my bank account every time again. This time, the beauty brand teamed up with fashion designer Zac Posen to launch a collection consisting out of products for the face, eyes and lips. They also included two make up brushes.

The collection comes in a matte packaging with the designer's name written on it in gold letters. Super classy and an instant eye-catcher in your make up stash. 

Here's what all parties had to say about the collaboration:

"After dazzling women with his modern but timeless designs on the runway and red carpet for 13 years, New York designer Zac Posen presents his debut colour collection for MAC. From the iconic packaging to the square-handled contour and buffer brushes that boast the designer's mark, every loving detail that Posen adorns on the female form takes on a new shape for the face."

"Over the past 15 years I have learned a great deal from MAC about beauty. Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand and I have always wanted to create a make up collection to complement my designs and brand. It was only natural to work with MAC to create my first ever signature collection. I wanted to keep it luxurious, a little mysterious and clean with a large dose of star wattage."
- Zac Posen

"Zac Posen has been a part of the MAC family for over 15 years, as we've been supporters from his very first collection in 2001. Zac's classic designs and deft hand in draping, textures and overall femininity evoke a kind of throw-back glamour that still feels modern. This collection is the perfect encapsulation of both of our worlds, with something sophisticated and sexy for every woman out there."
- James Gager, Senior Vice President / Group Creative Director

The MAC x Zac Posen collection will be available online and in selected MAC stores from 27th of February.

Beauty // Bumble & Bumble 'Full Potential' Collection

Ever since I was 12 years old, I have been dyeing my hair. It all started with a pink dip and dye after seeing Beyoncé in Destiny's Child's Bootylicious video and it never stopped since. I continued with dying my hair from blonde to brown, from brown to black, adding snow-white locks in between, going back to blonde, adding a pink / purple / blue dip and dye again, going brown again and now blonde again -- and I'm pretty sure that I forgot a couple of hairdos along the way.

My parents never stopped me for experimenting with my hair and clothes, something that I've always been super grateful for. My hair, on the other hand, is not so grateful. Dyeing means damaging and that's exactly what I've noticed along the years: split ends, hair loss -- just weak and damaged hair altogether. Since I'm not planning on going bald any time soon, one of my resolutions for 2016 is to invest more in hair care. 

I bumped into the Bumble & Bumble Full Potential Collection and it immediately caught my attention. Apart from the brand's insanely cute name, this hair care collection contains Hair Preserve Blend: a technology that functions as a liquid bandage for the hair. The hair is being nurtured and at the same time, the hair's elasticity and strength are taken care of as well. The result? Thicker and more voluminous that doesn't break. The formula also contains special UV absorbers, which protect the hair against damaging UV rays. Everything my hair needs, basically. The collection contains a shampoo, a conditioner and a booster spray.

I can't wait to get my hands on the Bumble & Bumble Full Potential Collection! Have you already tried their products? And what did you think about it? Sound off in the comment box below, I want to read all about it.

Info & Prices:

Full Potential Hair Preserving Shampoo               € 32,40
Full Potential Hair Preserving Conditioner          € 35,90
Full Potential Hair Preserving Booster Spray      € 57,50

Now available in the Bumble & Bumble hair salons and Bumble & Bumble selling points. 


Shark Attack Loves ... // River Island Spring '16 Pink Jacket

Winter doesn't exist in my book or closet. Never has, never will. So ever since the snow has (unfortunately) reached Belgium since a couple of days, I've been mentally skipping winter and all synonyms involved by already browsing for possible spring or summer collections. Doing so, I bumped into this amazing baby pink / black jacket by River Island.

The color palette, the half leather / half suede (?) parts, ... Loves it! Owning about a dozen black leather jackets, this one would be a welcomed change into my wardrobe. I can already see myself pairing it with a simple tee, black skinny jeans or leather pants and a pair of big, black sunglasses -- y'all know the girlie thing isn't my style. Thoughts?

Available from February 2016.
