Review // Chanel Beauty Spring '15 Rêverie Parisienne Lipstick & Lipgloss

Hell must be freezing over, because I got myself a lipstick other than MAC. And I got the matching lipgloss as well. After seeing the gorgeous Chanel Spring 2015 Rêverie Parisienne beauty campaign, I just knew I had to get my hands on the lipstick that the model was wearing. Of course, I couldn't let it all go unnoticed, so I decided to review the new goodies for you. 

Here's what Chanel says about the Rêverie Parisienne collection:

"Beauty blooms with a captivating colour collection inspired by the springtime gardens of Paris. Vibrant corals lend balance to wistful, satiny shades of pink, creating an enchanting spectrum of shades that range from delicate to deep."

You can find the entire beauty collection in stores now. 

* Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour °50 La Romanesque / € 32,99
* Lèvres Scintillantes Brilliant Extrême Glossimer °194 Crazy Fuchsia / € 27,99

Event // UPR Mid Season S/S '15

Last week, I jetted of to Antwerp to visit the Mid Season S/S '15 event of one of my favorite PR agencies. Just imagine a day filled with fun people, awesome new collections and some snacks and drinks. My mom snapped the picture above in between two snow showers. I thought it would be fun to wear my Stan Smith sneakers and baring my ankles, but I hated myself all day for it. It was freezing! 

Anyway, I took some pictures of my favorite items with my iPhone (since I didn't want to ruin my camera while walking in the snow) and luckily, UPR's photographer also took some cool shots.

Win // Duotickets to 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

It's just a matter of days before Mr. Grey is ready to see us... On 11th February 2015, the most anticipated movie of the year (yes, of the year, already) Fifty Shades Of Grey will be released here in Belgium. It still baffles me how a bestseller series has turned into such a worldwide phenomenon; my girlfriends won't talk about anything else for weeks. Since the books have been translated in 51 languages and there have been sold over 100 million copies worldwide, I'm sure that all of my female readers know what I'm talking about.

Being the bookworm that I am, I have devoured all of the books in less than a week -- no joke. I've had tons of fantasies about Mr. Grey and Anastasia Steele (uhm, well this is uncomfortable...) and I can't wait to see if Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) will live up to my expectations. I have already planned a girls' night out to the movie theatre with my mom and her best friend; I'm so excited! As this movie will be the perfect distraction, I don't even mind celebrating Valentine's Day as a single woman this year. 

And that's not all...

Shark Attack and Mr. Grey (well, not really, but it sounds cool) are giving away two tickets to Fifty Shades Of Grey to one of my readers! Yup, that's right. One of you has the chance to take their bestie, mom, sister, aunt ... to see Jamie Dornan lose control on the big screen. Yeah, and Dakota Johnson too, I know. But let's be honest, we all know Christian Grey is the one who is pulling all of our strings here.

What do you have to do to win?

1. Like the Fifty Shades Of Grey Facebook page
2. Like the Shark Attack - Fashion Blog Facebook page (I'm going to announce the winner on it.)
3. Give me the names of Dakota Johnson's famous parents.
4. Watch the trailer below and tell me the name of the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack and the name of the artist who sings it. 
5. Leave a comment below with both answers and your email address. 

The competition is open to all of my Belgian readers and will end on 14th February (see it as a late Valentine's gift from me to you).

Good luck!

* This give away is in collaboration with Sony Pictures Belgium *


Review // MAC x Nasty Gal Lipsticks

Leave it to MAC to launch collaborations that make my heart beat faster. I'm no expert when it comes to blushes, eyeshadows and so on (even though I would want to be), so I immediately go for the lipsticks instead. When I first heard the news that MAC and Nasty Gal were teaming up, I was over the moon. Even though I have never ordered anything from the website (I'm a pussy when it comes to ordering online overseas; I'm always afraid that something will go wrong), I do check it at least once a week. Plus, I already shared my excitement on the MAC x Nasty Gal collection before here

You probably all know about my love for matte lipsticks already, so when I found out that all three lipsticks would be matte, I knew I had to get my hands on them. Whenever MAC collaborates with a celebrity or a brand, the collections hit stores on a Saturday most of the time -- when I have to work. The best chance I had was to find out when the collection would be launched online. Thanks to some inside sources (do I sound like Gossip Girl already), I was anxiously sitting in front of my laptop one morning, hitting that refresh button like a mofo. 

After waiting for what seemed an eternity (and were only three days in reality), I finally received my babies. Yes, I order my children online. And now, I can finally review them for you! Are you ready?

The MAC x Nasty Gal collection will hit stores on Saturday, 7 February 2015.


Event // Paul Smith Exhibition @ Modemuseum Hasselt

A couple of days ago, I was invited to the opening of the Paul Smith exhibition at the Modemuseum in Hasselt. 'Modemuseum' simply means 'fashion museum' and the Modemuseum now hosts the exhibition 'Hello my name is Paul Smith'. For the occasion, Paul Smith himself came all the way to Hasselt to celebrate with us. I'm proud to say that the Modemuseum is located in 'my' province, about 20 minutes from where I live. 

I was both stunned and excited when I found out that Paul Smith himself would be the guide of our tour through the exhibition. There were only a dozen of us (Flemish and Walloon bloggers), so the atmosphere had a very personal and cozy touch. Mr. Smith is extremely talented, genuine, humble, down to earth and passionate about what he does. He has that typical British charm that I happen to love so much.

Since it's been ages that I uploaded a new video, I thought it would be fun to film bits and pieces of my personal favorite parts of the exhibition. It's not your average exhibition with all of the designer's clothes stalled all over the place, though. 'Hello my name is Paul Smith' gives you a brilliant look into Paul Smith's career in the most innovative way possible. Just have a look at the video and you'll know what I mean. This video was shot with my iPhone, which reminds me that I really need to get a nice camera for when I want to film. #notetoself

Personal // Instagram January 2015

For me, January has been a month full of doubts, writer's blocks, brainstorming sessions; all about the blog. That's why I haven't been so active on here for the past month. I needed some time of to get things straight and find out what I want for my blog and where I want to go with it. I have figured it all out and I'm more than ready for a new start. Yay! Here are my favorite Instagram shots that I took during January 2015.
