My In-Law Horror Story


Back in May 2015 a family gathering was planned in my apartment, for my boyfriend. He was turning 30 and his family wanted to fly over (from Italy to Belgium) to celebrate. Even though I was anxious about it I was very happy for him and he assured me everything would be fine. I didn't end up celebrating much of that birthday, I had gone completely insane already days before that. The way I was treated by my in-laws, in my own house, was horrific. Every time I think about it my heart rate raises and I become extremely sad and angry, my anxiety levels go trough the roof and I've had enough. Even though this is a very personal story I still want to post it on my blog so I can finally let it go. I divided it in different parts so it's easier for you to read, I didn't think it would end up being so long.

Tarte Cosmetics⎢Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


I don't remember the last time I got so excited about a high end eyeshadow palette, not to mention a(nother) nude eyeshadow palette (again). As soon as reviews and swatches from the Tartelette In Bloom palette started popping up like mushrooms after a rain I knew I had to get my hands on it asap. Tarte Cosmetics's eyeshadows have a very good reputation, and for someone who's never tried anything from the brand what better way to start off with than a nice, neutral palette with an edge!

Why I stopped using Elf Cosmetics makeup


As I was reorganising my makeup collection yesterday I noticed how I had placed all the Elf Cosmetics makeup products in my 'throw away pile'. I've been very unfortunate when it comes to Elf makeup and after giving it some thought I concluded that it was about time I'd share with you why as I can, for sure, not be the only one who's had issues with their products. Elf Cosmetics is a low budget brand with a great range of makeup at super affordable prices, which in Europe is mainly sold online. I received mine in a makeup swap I did in my early Youtube days with the lovely LJ James. I had specifically asked her to get me some Elf products and I was really excited about it!

Things I Want To Let Go in 2016


The article you're about to read I wrote when I was in a very, very dark place. It's been among my drafts on Blogger ever since and I never really knew what to do with it. Every time I read it, it makes me cry and it reminds me of how I never want to go back to that place again. This is what I want to let go in 2016 and if possible, forever.
