 Reasons to love wide brim hats:

1. they keep your hair frizz free and your makeup from running down your face on those seemingly never ending stretches of drizzly days during fall, winter and spring in Belgium
2. they make every day seem like a good hair day
3. they give any outfit a semblance of intentionality

This particular outfit wouldn't have been half as noticeable without it, and I'm so happy I allowed myself to follow my impulsive obsession with hats by buying this one. Not that it was that expensive, I can just be really weird with buying stuff. One day I'm like "sure, why not, GET ALL OF ALL THE THINGS" and the other I can go back and forth about spending €10 like I would actually miss it. But I guess wanting to be 100% sure is better than just mindless spending on anything that sparks my attention. Especially since I can be overenthusiastic at times.


I hope your weekend was lovely! Mine sucked (except for developing an obsession with Hamilton - the musical), but they can't all be winners.

Beauty: comparing my current favourite mascaras

review: comparing Diorshow mascara, MAC Haute & Naughty, Urban Decay Perversion and Maybelline Go Chaotic!

There's a few products that are indispensable in my beauty routine, and one of them is definitely mascara. My brows and my lashes define my look, and without doing my brows and lashes, I feel like my face doesn't have the same amount of expression.  Finding the right products is obviously paramount to getting the look you want, and over the past months I have received a couple of mascaras for reviewing purposes, and bought a couple of others. This is a roundup of my four favourites, and a breakdown of what makes them great so that you can figure out which one of these would be your perfect match.

Beauty: Yves Rocher Cuir Vetiver review

Beauty: Yves Rocher Cuir Vetiver review

Hi guys! Something for the dudes today (or the girls who love androgynous fragrances, of course). A while ago, I was invited to a press event all the way over in West-Flanders, where Yves Rocher would introduce us to some new products against the gorgeous backdrop of a laurel arboretum. Most of the new lines haven't launched yet, but one has, and it happens to be one of my favourites out of all the new stuff: the Cuir Vetiver fragrance. 

Now, photographs of a bottle of fragrance aren't the most exciting thing to see, nor are swatches of the hair and body shampoo on the back of my hand, so this post will mostly be me waxing poetically about Cuir Vetiver. Oh, and I'll share a few pics of the Yves Rocher event!
