Polar A360 Fitness Tracker

•••
It's been a few weeks now since I took off the training wheels and level'd up my fitness efforts by tracking them. It's a simple concept but if you're putting in the work, it's quite handy to know just how your body is reacting to all of the sweat and muscle burning. The Polar Fitness Tracker A360 is a lifestyle gadget that doubles up as a workout tracker to[...]

Beauty Blogging Pariah

•••
How can I word this without sounding insulting or coming off as angry? Not at all so here goes, I feel like I'm the beauty blogging Pariah in Belgium.   Not so long ago I was invited to a fragrance event and upon arriving I didn't see anyone I know. The PR invited a lot of fashion & lifestyle people, with most of the beauty crowd I know -we're t[...]

What do you consider expensive products?

•••
It's the gathering of 13 beauty influencers in Paris that sprung the question: "what kind of market are you catering to?". When my colleagues ask me whatever is in Vogue at that time for me, they notice it generally falls in the mid to high end spectrum. Why is that?   First off, I don't look at prices anymore so I'm not biased by products costing a[...]

Bad Hairdresser Stories

•••
Here's me showing my long hair.. desperately needing a haircut from the comments on Instagram.. so I figured I'd get personal and share a few stories about it. I have visited a barbers because I never cared about my hair, but the moment you find a great one.. you start comparing previous horrors.. enjoy!   I found myself in the barber chair past wee[...]

Brilliant Moves

•••
December ushers in winter weather and a stir in those waters you could call my mind. Fueled by a recent article I read about how another male blogger slammed metrosexuals as "long overdue", a shopping trip with Ruth -I should write soon, apparently I'm a Scandinavian fashion type- and lastly the ever present perfectionist in me that wonders if what I'm doing[...]

A Full SachaJuan Hand

•••
I'm spoiled rotten when it comes to beauty regimens, cherry picking what I write about is a luxury position not many have. I just got these SachaJuan samples in as a try before you buy kinda deal. Not that I needed more stuff anyway, it's still fun to discover new things right? What's the last thing you got/bought for yourself? ------------ Rotverwend op [...]

Wild & Free?

•••
I blog. On a "regular" basis because you sure as hell don't see what goes on behind the scenes. It's a lot of ups and downs, nobody with a hint of creativity in them will deny that. Don't get me wrong, I love doing this and trying out new things all the time. My mind is a curious thing, forever drawn to things of beauty. It's just that sometimes one wonde[...]

Old Tricks

•••
Change was imminent as my skin started to crawl at what I was seeing around me. Lets just say the old cocoon got too cramped and I needed some more space to breathe. My writing has changed, my life has changed and so must the website. A new format, a little different but still 100% me. Now all I want from now on is more interaction, bring you guys &[...]

Behind The Scenes

•••
    Quite frequently a topic among bloggers is "how do you take pictures that are good quality and great to look at?". Now I'm no expert when it comes to photography and I don't have a fancy camera or special lighting studio like some do. All I have is my phone, a separate small camera with no extra lenses, a small desk to work with and some [...]
