Event // The Big You

Photobucket
Hi everyone!

First of all, I'd like to thank you for all the sweet comments, tweets and messages on my Facebook page about the new lay out. I'm so happy - and a little bit relieved, I must say - you all like it!

I've been so excited about The Big You event, hosted by the sweet people at Unlimited PR. They started teasing me, and lots of other Belgian bloggers, with a mysterious invitation. Since I'm not the most patient person walking around the surface, I couldn't wait for the 8th of March to arrive. DianaEvelien and I drove off to Antwerp - and got lost a couple of times on our way there - and were welcomed by the enthusiastic and amazingly sweet UPR-team. Oh, and as you can see on the picture above, we were welcomed by these colorful cupcakes. Being the sugar lover that I am, I tried out all three of them and mmm-mmm... I have no words.

I'd like to thank the UPR-team for an amazing day full of treats and for taking care of us.

I'm babbling - or typing, actually - again, so I'm going to shut up and let you watch the pictures.
Just click, click, click below to see them. :)

As from the 16th of April, Ici Paris XL will exclusively sell these three new perfumes by DKNY: Sweet Delicious Tart Key Lime, Sweet Delicious Pink Macaron and Sweet Delicious Creamy Merengue. I was lucky enough to receive some samples and my personal favorite is the Sweet Delicious Tart Key Lime.

Walking around at the Pronails corner, I saw this pretty face about ... everywhere! Meet Paulien, my blogger friend and - obviously - also a model. This picture makes me long for summer even more.

Pronails gave us the opportunity to try out their newest collection by letting us decorate our own nails. Nail polish, fantasy stickers ... You name it, we were allowed to try it. Since I'm not a beauty blogger - and ... Secret: I have artificial nails - I bet you won't be surprised that my nails didn't turn out the way I wanted them to. ;)

Photobucket
Next stop? Rituals! By testing my make up skills on this face chart - and trying out their new make up collection in the meantime - I have the chance to win the entire new collection (they'll choose the top 5 soon). Again, I'm no beauty blogger and I'm way too ashamed to show you my face chart. #Blushes


My favorite perfume by Rituals: White Patchouli + Cedar Wood.

My favorite part of the day: a workshop, organised by M.A.C. Cosmetics. We were taught how to create smokey eyes in an hour and were given tons of tips and tricks. KimElien and I - all fashion bloggers - were feeling kinda helpless, since we were all surrounded by beauty bloggers who know all the ins and outs on the smokey eyes look. Painful and hilarious at the same time. 

Photobucket
Make up artist Elke showed us what to do and how to do it on Stéphanie.

Some M.A.C. goodies I used to create my look.

On my right: the always happy and smiling Elien.

With Valerie, posing for Sacha. We spent the whole day giggling -- She's sooo funny. We were supposed to act as if we were in the jungle and I think we did pretty good. MONKEY TROUBLE!

Photobucket
My picture. Pretty cool with the jungle background, right? If you like this picture, could you please help me out by liking it on Facebook here? Thank you in advance!

Did you know that Jeffrey Campbell designed some shoes for Sacha? How about these (affordable) Lita lookalikes? I love the kitty print!

Photobucket
Or how about these Lady Gaga inspired heelless (Is that a word?) ones? Annebeth tried them on and said they're amazingly comfortable to walk in.

Elfi's nails I am dying to have. Sooo cute!

We finished the day with a surprise from 'Stylescrapbook for Kipling'.

Photobucket
A personal message from Andy, who couldn't be there since she's filming her very own television show in South America. #LuckyHer

Photobucket
Time to play some good old bingo! To win, you had to have 2 horizontal lines covered. Easier said than done, I swear!

Photobucket
4 lucky ones won a highly coveted 'Stylescrapbook for Kipling' camera bag. Unfortunately, I didn't. Too bad, since a stylish bag for my camera would've come in handy, but hey ... I had a blast playing bingo. It was so much fun! 

The Big You is, without a doubt, one of the most fun events I've attended ever since I started blogging. Thanks again, UPR!

      I put my ideas together with those of the talented twin brothers of Twinski.be and they worked out the concept.
