The start of a new week filled with more insight to new collections and brands of 2014, so let us not waste time.. and quickly click ahead to see what is in store for us!
I had not heard of Souvenirs de Pomme yet, but -oh my gosh- it has so many beautiful products. This Belgian jewelry brand by two sisters who took inspiration from their grandmother. Lucky for us, this leads to the most amazing and elegant pieces of jewelry. They are all so soft and romantic no matter in which color they come. The products of Souvenirs de Pomme are quite exclusive too, because you can have products made to your liking!
We all know the luxurious beauty brand Yves Saint Laurent (I am not a fan of the name change, so I am sticking to this), but what you might not know yet is that they have a new lip and cheek product coming up. This product is known as "Baby Doll Kiss & Blush" and is meant for both your lips and blush. It works the same way a lip and cheek stain would, but the product is a soft and mousse formula that is very soft to the touch and gives you a romantic look. It is available in stores soon, unless you live outside of the Benelux.. then it might be available already!
Guess took me by surprise with its interesting fall/winter collection so I wanted to give you a sneak peek to what you can expect. Have a look at this pointy ankle boot; it has something sexy to it. Do you not agree? I was loving NafNaf's new collection for its cotton candy colors and this jacket is the perfect example. It is soft, sweet and girly without standing out too much. So, it is very wearable!
I, obviously, have to add Oil&Vingear in here because I am a huge fan of this store. It makes me more interested in trying different (Italian) products that I would not usually try and everything comes in such wonderful packaging. I have a nice little collection going on of different oils (I have four different oils now, most from Oil&Vinegar and all in its bottles) and several sauces and spices. The salsa arrabbiata looks delicious and I can not wait to try it! The new collection has lots of warm colors that remind me of the south of Europe! What is not to love about that?
With the sun coming out and summer only being a couple of months away, we should start thinking (or actually using) about buying SPF for - at least - our face. Bergasol is a brand that solely focuses on body and face products protecting you from the sun and has been doing so for over 40 years now. So if you are still looking for a "sun expert" then make sure you check out Bergasol!
I am not a huge fan of gin, but these Bombay Sapphire bottles look so wonderful that I would not mind trying it out anyways, just to show off my beautiful bottle. Apparently, the bottle is not the only special thing about Bombay Sapphire, but its botanical ingredients too! I also love the commercial, have you seen it? Click here. Just look at the pictures below and imagine about how amazing it would look on your mini-bar in your kitchen... Yes, I can definitely picture it!
When I was about to fall asleep I could count on the wonderful hosts to keep me awake with a sugar rush.. just look at all the yumminess available! Whilst enjoying my flying saucers (those UFO-shaped thingies) I looked around at Rimmel, Sally Hansen and Jane Iredale. All are beauty brands with products I would like to try out. Rimmel has lip pencils called "Lasting Finish Color Rush Intense Color Balm", jeeze what a name. Let us just call it lip balms that come in seven shades! I tried out the one in the front (on the picture) when my lips were in need of some nourishing and they did just that. The color is really pigmented and stayed on for a couple of hours (of eating those sugary sweets). Sally Hansen is a nail polish brand and its upcoming collection is called "Color Frenzy". These nail polishes are great top coats (or at least used on top off another color) because the nail polishes are transparent with colored flocks of glitter in them. I would love to try Jane Iredale's lip glosses, because the package looks so luxurious and beautiful and the colors are all beautiful.. all of them! And I am not even a lip gloss-girl!!
If you follow me on Twitter, then you probably know I have bought my first pair of Steve Madden shoes and I am super excited about them. I hope to do an outfit post soon with those gorgeous heels on. My enthusiasm can also be found for the beautiful shoes below. Especially the ankle boots; those are just gorgeous and I could even walk in them (remember my shoe-blues?).. I think.. hope..
I really do not like duckfaces, but here you go.. I am actually putting up a duckface picture... I had a lot of fun with my four ladies in crime: Inez, Eva, Zoe and Sophie! Thank you for the laughs and this horribly wonderful duckface polaroid picture! This picture was taken right after most of the girls had their lips done by the new lip product of YSL, but I was wearing my lovely Von Dutch by MDMflow.
Well, that was it! I would also like to say thank you to everyone for the fun and informative day. I have learned a lot about new brands and/or upcoming collections and I look forward to trying out some of the products! I would also like to point out that BE has more (darker) colors coming up for its foundations. I have found my color and BE make up artist, Vanessa Snackaert, did my foundation and blush (see the picture above). It looked natural and stayed on my face all day long, so keep that in mind! Also, I can not wait for the new lip products by YSL! What about you? Which products are you really looking forward to? And which brands were new for you?
