How to style the Superstars

Hey You ! 

You might have seen on my Instagram already that I have finally gone for the infamous Adidas Superstar sneakers! So here is a summer look inspo on how to wear them ! 🙂

Usually, I’m not that much of  a sneaker type of girl but I must admit in summer, they’re just the best shoes ; comfy, easy to wear, easy to pair with pretty much everything, and so on..

When I had to choose which ones to get, I definitely didn’t want a too sportive pair.. Like Nikes or something. I’m not a fan of too sporty looking ones. So I was eyeing the Superstar for a long time because I think they’re super versatile and very flattering. Their shape makes your feet look smaller for some reason. And with a 41 eu size I couldn’t be happier! haha

⇒ For this look, the main key is “Less is more” : 

A high waisted black leather skirt paired with a tied grey tee and the sneakers + a pop of red on the lips,  And that’s all.

EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY !

100 shades of Vice

Hey You 

Last week, I was invited to the Urban Decay launch party for their new lipstick range ;

The Vice Lipsticks.

So here I am reporting to you everything you need to know about it ! 🙂

What is it ?

UD25

The new Vice Lipstick is a collection of a 100 new shades and 6 different finishes. All of that for only 19,50€ a bullet. (As I said on Snapchat when I showed you all of that, I was actually positively surprised by this price, I thought it was going to be a lot more ! ) They created 100 different new shades going from beige nudes to crazy colours such as black, purple, bright mettalized pink etc.. In 6 different finishes : mega matte, comfort matte, cream, sheer, sheer shimmer and metallized.

It’s literally impossible not to find at least one that you’ll be obsessed with !

Swatches and Try ons

UD26

Before the party I received one by mail which is “Big Bang” , a bright metallized pink. I must be honest I hate it, the color doesn’t suit me at all and the finish doesn’t look good on me either.. So I was really looking forward to seeing all the other shades and try them at the party. I’m a huge fan of matte finishes and this collection has actually 2 different matte finishes ; The “Extra” matte called Mega Matte and the Comfort Matte which is less dry but still matte looking ! A very interesting formula which I adored !

I’m also not so comfortable with crazy colors like blue, purple and all of that but if you are, keep reading I have some interesting ones to show you below ! 😉 I usually go for pink nudes, blue based matte reds and I also have an obsession lately with wine reds ( Like Diva from Mac).

I used my Mom as Lips model because she has bigger lips than me (yes I know, some of them are really badly applied haha #ImNoMakeUpArtist ) I hope it still helps ! 😉

In the goody bag I received those ones in full lipsticks size ;

( Those followed by () are my favorites )

  • Big Bang – Metallized

× Big Bang is a bright pink with a metallic finish. It’s quite matte feeling too. It also looks really different on my mom and I for some reason. I Personally hate hate hate it haha #Whoops

On my Mom :

On me :

  • Disturbed – Comfort Matte ()

× Disturbed is one of my fav. I love this deep wine red. I think it’s really classy and sophisticated.

On my Mom ;

UD18

On me :

UDM9

  • Pandemonium – Mega Matte

× This is the craziest lipstick color I have ever seen. haha But somehow, I like it on me, It’s just REALLY special and I’m definitely not the kinda girl who dares to go out in the street wearing such a crazy color ! But it’s definitely pretty, very pigmented.

On my Mom ;

UD11

 

  • Firebird – Cream

× The cream texture is SO comfy !! It glides super easy on the lips. The Firebird shade is a lovely hot pink/fushia color. Again, too crazy for me, but I think it looks lush on my mom !

On my Mom ;

UD8

On me ;

UDM4

  • Conspiracy – Metallized

× This Brown Metallized shade is very 90S isn’t it ?? I like brown colors on darker skin tones more, not that much for me !

On my Mom ;

UD7

 

On me ;

UDM6

 

And those ones in samples (which contained more colors that I personally liked ) ;

  • Backtalk ()

× Here comes my FAV !! This amazing pinky matte nude is everything I want ! I don’t have much to say, I’ve been wearing it everyday since I got it, and I’m seriously planning on buying the full bullet ! 

On my Mom ;

On me ;

  • 714

× GUURLS. This is the perfectest red ever ! It’s bright, red, matte, what more do you want ??

UD13

 

On me ;

UDM15

  • Rock Steady ()

× This one is also gorgeous, isn’t it ?? It’s a deeper red, but still bright, and also, has blue undertones which makes the teeth look whiter ! WIN WIN.

On my Mom ;

On me ;

UDM17

My opinion ?

UD22

This whole new release is all very exciting !! I’m a huge fan of lipsticks and I assume the majority of us girls are.. The big and huge good point of these ones is that they honestly please everyone’s tastes thanks to the extra large color palette they offer.

If you are daring and want to go for crazy colors ; there’s Pandemonium, Big Bang and all but if you’re more into classics and nudes ; the choice is also huge.

I’m really seduced by the lipsticks and I’m thinking about getting myself one or two nudes I tried at the party ; Backtalk and Naked which are super natural and flattering (and matte !! haha )

My general opinion about them is really positive ; each colour is really pigmented, even the more nude or sheer ones. The different finishes are also really interesting and comfortable especially the “comfort matte” one.

You must have understood, I can’t recommend you enough to have a look in your nearest Urban Decay Retailers ! 😀

Your opinion !

UD23

If you want to try the lipsticks and have a look at all the colors, I highly recommend the app.

They created an app similar to the one L’oreal made but the UD one is better in my opinion haha. Basically, you can either have a scroll through the colors, the finishes or have a sort of “Tinder” game but in a lipstick version haha which allows you to swipe right or left depending if you like the shade or not !

The app is only available in the apple store for the moment ( here ) !

→ Concerning the launch you can get yours already at Sephora, and in Belgium soon via Ici Paris XL 

I hope all of this was somehow helpful for you !

Kisses,

Jumpsuits : my summer’s best friends

Hey You ! 

I hope you’re all good ?? Personally, I’m SO EXCITED to finally be back on here after those long weeks of revisions and exams !! :'( (I hope yours went well by the way ! )

Summer can finally start !!

(If the belgian weather is willing to follow along that’d be great uhh uhh … )

So here we go for the first summer outfit of this season ; And starting off with colors as you can see ! Maybe have you noticed that I’m such in a pinky mood lately ? (so much pink on my Instagram feed for instance haha) so naturally I felt the need to add some PINK tones to my looks!

  • Aren’t jumpsuits so cool ? I think they give such a classy yet casual vibe at the same time ! And they also are so easy to wear, just add shoes and a bag and maybe a jacket and you’re good to go ! 😉
  • This one , I paired with High heels in matching colors because I just love heels but for an even more casual and sporty look you can easily wear it with sneakers for example I will wear this look again with my new Adidas Superstar ! (which I’m obsessed with, they’re so easy to wear and versatile ! )
  • Also, couldn’t restrain myself from adding a tiny Rock touch !  haha And what else than a black leather jacket to make the whole look even cooler ?? Also great for Belgium’s summer weather which goes from heat wave to -10°C in a heart beat… And for transitioning from day to night as well ! 😉

 

I hope you love this look as much as I loved creating it for you ! Feels so good to be back 😀 ! So see you very soon for more fashion :-*

Pastel Coloured

Hey You !

Aaaaaand here’s another spring outfit ! This one is probably my favourite one out of all the outfits I have planned for you for spring !

I crushed hard for this lace top from ZARA from the very first second I laid eyes on it  And those jeans were on my wishlist for MONTHS. They’re mom jeans, which is THE jeans style in trend at the moment. I adore the 90s vibe they add to any outfit. The lightweight powder pink trench is also from zara, but I honestly think it’s overpriced af (around 80€…) but the combo jeans+lace/crop top+trench is really cool I think ! This cute little coral bag is from a French brand named ‘Parfois’ which I never heard of before going to Lisbon ! They have really cool bags/shoes/accessories for reasonable prices 🙂

A little life update ;

May is around the corner, which means exams and revisions are coming at me like a train  I’ll be free around the 14th of June ! ( SUMMER IS COMING BITCHES ) ( + It’s april the 25th and it’s 9 degrees !!! I had no idea I lived in North Pole ??!!!! Aaarrgg I can’t cope with that weather…  )

Anyways, see you soon for more exciting stuff ,

I hope you like this look !

Dungarees & stripes at the seaside

Hey you ! 

You might have noticed via my Instagram posts that I went to the North of France with my family last weekend. We went in Nord-Pas-De-Calais, more precisely around ‘Le Touquet’. It’s a really famous place because it’s known to be the seaside destination where Parisians go to. The weather was SHIT. hahah. And we went to a restaurant I would not even recommend for a billion dollars… It was the most disgusting dish I ever ate in my whole life..

On sunday , the weather was a lot better ! So I shot a few pics of my outfit (as you must have understood..)

Denim dungarees made their come back 1 or 3 years ago already, and never really left. Yet, I don’t see that many girls wearing one.. Which I think is a shame. It’s a great alternative to regular jeans, it’s comfy, cool and easy to wear. They are also available in all shapes and colors so it always fits ones tastes ! Mine are from ZARA and I got them 2 or 3 ago for like 10€ in sale haha !

I often wear mine with this stripy crop jumper which I found at Benetton a while ago! Fun fact ; it’s actually not a crop jumper.. But I bought it so long ago, that I’ve obviously grown up, it became too small for me and now it looks and fits like a crop jumper and I actually love it more !

We shot the pictures on the parking lot around the ‘Cap Gris Nez’ ! From there, you could see the British coasts which was really cool !

 

Hope you like this look !
