Review: KIKO Creamy Radiant Highlighter 101 Rose


Review: KIKO Creamy Radiant Highlighter





























Ever since I bought the KIKO Velvet Touch Cream Stick Blush in 06 Geranium, I thought about getting one of their creamy stick highlighters as well. Since I'm always on a budget, it still took me a few months to actually buy this one - now that I have it, I wish I bought it sooner!

Repurchased: "Madame" by Jean Paul Gaultier

Review Jean Paul Gaultier Madame Eau de Toilette
 I don't post about perfume often, but I have a post about my favourite A/W fragrance (Burberry Brit), so I figured it was time for a Spring/Summer update. A few weeks ago I repurchased my favourite scent for pretty much every occasion: "Madame" by Jean Paul Gaultier.

Empty Products #5 - Makeup

Review KIKO Natural Concealer, KIKO Ultra Tech Curve Mascara, Essence All About Matt Translucent Powder, Catrice Illuminating Blush
I'm back with part two of my empties posts for this month! Part one featuring a lot of skincare was up earlier this week, you can check it out here if you missed it.
I emptied a few makeup bits and pieces over the past few months, which was mostly due to me not buying new stuff and focusing on the things I already had. It's quite satisfying to finish makeup products I think, and now that my drawers are a bit emptier, I guess adding a few new things is justifiable ...? But for now, on to my makeup empties:

Empty Products #5 - Skincare

Reviews of Garnier Micellar Water and more





























I have this little drawer on my IKEA dressing table that I put my empty products in. These past few days I noticed that it was already jam-packed with empty tubes, bottles and pots, so it was high time for another empty products post. This time I actually have so much stuff that I want to split it up into two posts, one featuring exclusively skincare, the other one makeup. As you can see, today's post is about all the skincare I finished in the past few months!

Why I Stopped Being A Music Snob & Why Guilty Pleasures Rock

Why I Stopped Being A Music Snob & Why Guilty Pleasures Rock


This might be an odd title for a post, but I've been thinking about this concept for quite a while now. As you all know, I enjoy music as much as the next person. Why else would I blog about it, or write a whole MA thesis about the topic? Exactly. When I was a teenager and just discovered rock music - which, at that point, in my opinion, was the only 'true' genre of popular music that was worth listening to - I was quite the music snob. I thought my taste in music was so much more refined and clearly above those who enjoyed electronic music or the typical "charts" music. What a bunch of bullshit that is!

Review: KIKO Dark Circle Concealer

KIKO Dark Circle Concealer 01 Porcelain Review





























I'm back with another KIKO product to add to your shopping lists, people! This time, it's a complexion product - the Dark Circle Concealer. I've seen snippets of this before online and was quite intrigued by the look of it. KIKO brought out a whole line of undereye concealers and correctors (see the rest on their website here and here), and originally I wanted to get the yellow Dark Circle Tone Eraser, and I could have sworn I put that in my basket ... but somehow I ended up with the Dark Circle Concealer in 01 Porcelain. I think it has something to do with my mum and I both wanting to get one of them in different shades and some mix up happened. Oh well - at least I still ended up with the right shade! On to my review ...

Review: MAC Cockney Lipstick

MAC Cockney Review





























Who can resist a red lipstick? Not me, that's for sure. 
I actually didn't buy MAC Cockney though - it was more part of a swap that I did with my mum. Even though she likes the colour, she never really wears red, whereas I like to wear red lipsticks all year around. So when she asked if I wanted this gem for my makeup bag in exchange for other things I do not wear, I couldn't really say no, right? And while I was at it, I wanted to do a post about it too!

What I Learned in the Past 5+ Years At University


Graduating university in March felt like the end of a big chapter in my life - big enough to justify a post about it anyways. I've been wanting to write a post about all the things I learned during my time at university for a long time now, and now I feel like I'm in the right mindset to do it. It won't all be strictly university related; more like a few things I've learned during the past five/six years since moving out and attending uni. This post might be more of a cathartic exercise for me than anything else, but maybe it does help some of you as well, who knows? So here's some words of wisdom by me ...
