Time to be and feel pretty again! | Make up review

Hi there lovely women! I hope you are doing well. This quarantine is almost over (all around the world). In some countries as in Belgium, where I live, life went back to the usual since May 11th. Perhaps we have to continue to protect ourselves. Health above everything.

But hey it’s time for a little review. I recently bought some items from the brand Mellow Cosmetics. I showed you what I ordered in my very last post (do you remember? 👀).

Well, I finally got the items. It took a while to come due the Corona crisis I guess. Also I had to pay customs fee, which I should’ve known if I had read the shipment terms on their website… But I don’t even care though, I got my items and I’m happy to show it to y’all.

I mean it’s almost summer right.. we need to have summer color make up!

ANYWAYS.. review time!

This is my first order.

I must say that I am in love with the make up. The nude colors are just BOM! Can’t say much negative about it. Also it stays for a while and is matt. Why I love the make up is also because it is cruelty free!

During summer I’d rather do a nude make-up. Sometimes I will play with colors on my eyes but very occasionally or for events.

Imma let the pictures speak:

I took the pictures in daylight with an iPhone XR, portret mode ✔️.

A little video so you can really see the color.

Let’s move on to the eyeshadow:

The eyeshadow colors are very light and maybe not that pigmented. Let me explain: in generally the colors give a great color. But some give more pigmentation than others. The last 4 colors (brown) have less pigmentation than the other ones (with sparkles). But maybe that will not be an issue for people with a lighter skin tone though.

That is my personal opinion.. but I really like the palet.

Video review.
I used the colors Onyx and Topaz.
Sorry for the bad lightning xoxo.

Hope you guys know enough. If you still have questions do not hesitate to contact me, there is a from down below.

So this was it for my Mellow Cosmetics review! I am very happy with my purchase and will definitely buy more. I do recommend y’all to go order on their website, they have tons of options.

Don’t forget to add me on social media for more.

Glamorous with Mellowcosmetics?

Hello there beautiful people! First I want to shout “HAPPY EASTER”. I hope you guys took time to spend it with your family. And I hope you all are safe in this quarantine or like others call it WW3 (World War 3). Take time to spread love where you can and pray for better days to come.

Since I was gone for a while, we have a lot to catch up on. But yeah, let’s do it in tiny bits 😅. Don’t rush into things, right? Lol.

Anyways!! Maybe I should just get straight to the point. Since I came with something to glam you up, like said in the title.

So I have this new collaboration which I’m super excited about. And like you guys know, I love to share things. Besides that‘s also the reason of me creating this blog. But yeah, back to this collab⬇️.

Mellowcosmetics reached out to me and I first checked what they sell, to see if I wanted to collaborate with them. I think that is very important, to not just accept every collaboration! Only if you really like the products. And I surely did guys!!

If you know me, you know I love make up. I’m kinda addicted, even though I don’t use it on a daily bases. Anyways, I just fell in love with their brand. And it was a fair deal, so why not. Their prices are also very affordable!

I have to admit, I went to check the reviews (with pictures) on their website lmao. Y’all I had to make sure this isn’t a scam or what ever. You kinda want to spend wisely so do some research, Google is you friend right? Go read some reviews 🤷🏾‍♀️.

So I ordered a few products I definitely had to try out. I will show you guys directly what I got:

And since they did a lip-promotions, I added some items I liked. This offer is available until April 17th. I added this to my order (it’s an other order):

Promo code: LIPS | Buy one, get one offered.

I recommend y’all to go on their website, see for yourself. And maybe get along with the brand.

Can’t wait to receive my order! Since I’m from Europe, it takes 7-21 days to arrive (€5,90 standard shipping).

I just took standard shipping bcs the price was low and I don’t need the products right away, they can come whenever they want, lol. But I am excited though, can’t lie.

I think I’ve talked a lot.. lmao. Once I get the items, I come back to you guys with a video reviewwww.

If you’re convinced already, like me, you can go ahead and buy some stuff. It’s a good promo they’ve put out there. I’ll put the link down below.

Thank you for your time beautiful people, stay safe and stay tuned.

I’ll talk to you soon.

How I style my braids | 11 hairstyles

Hello there beautiful people. I hope you are doing well. Stay safe in this hard time. I know it isn’t easy to stay at home all day. But health before everything!

While I was about to take off my make up that night, I was you know, just looking at myself and trying some hairstyles. Then, all of a sudden I thought why not show you guys how I style my braids. This came up super randomly in my mind lmao. It was around 10pm..

Yep! I know..

But yeah since I’ve got braids now, I don’t have to style my hair when I get up. But sometimes you’re just tired of seeing your hair in the same position, right? So I thought, why not show people how I style my braids when I want a different look.

Here are 11 looks for y’all, I hope you’ll love it. Try it someday and send it to me. I would truly appreciate it.

The video isn’t long so hopefully you will make it ‘till the end. I know you can do it lol.

Anywayssss enjoyyyyy!

Thank you guys for your time.

Stay safe!

Let me know you favorite hairstyles in the comments.

Valentine’s Day

Hello there beautiful people. Hope you’re all doing well. And yeeeeeessss it’s almost so far. It’s that day of the year again.. where love is in the air. Dates here and there etc.

But I don’t think people know that much about Valentines Day, so let’s talk about that first. It is important to celebrate a day you know the history and meaning about. Don’t you agree?

History and meaning

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world.

For some it’s their favorite day of the year, where they can spoil their partner. For me it’s just a random day, way too commercial and not special at all. But hey, that is just my opinion.


For those who are really into V-Day, I have some outfit inspiration for y’all though!! Dress well for the occasion. It’s only once a year.


I just want to give to you this beautiful verse: Mark 12:31 “Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”

Happy V-Day in advance,



Found my perfect V-Day outfit on Odette her blog

Perfume? Good option!

Hello there lovely people! We are Monday again. Let’s begin this new week with a good smell, what do you think?

I wantend to introduce to you this brand which I recently discovered . I am so in love with the options they have. They have tons of options AND you can recycle your flacon.

Without talking too much, we are just going straight into it.

The brand I want to talk about today is called Equivalenza. They are a franchise whom the headquarter is based in Barcelona, Spain.

They are a network of more than 700 stores all over the world, in 26 countries. They are doing pretty well for a company that exists since 2011.

I got the perfume from Equivalenza as gift but the smell looked so familiar to me and I just didn’t understand! When I asked the person who bought me the gift why the perfume seemed to be so familiar to me.. I got answered by “Yeah they base most of their products on existing smells”. Then I just knew!!

We can definitely say that they reproduce high quality brand’s perfume for a better price. I have the one that smells like La Vie Est Belle from Lancôme (reference: 144).

I used to have La Vie Est Belle but I didn’t buy it very often because I thought it was expensive to buy over and over again every time. So I decided to buy one good quality/high branded perfume for special occasion and then one perfume no matter the brand for every day use. Their perfume is cheap but stays all day long.

I will link their website down here so you can take a look. I am just so in love!!

Go a head and take a look, I highly recommend this brand to you. If you are from Belgium, they have tis store in Brussels, Gent, Kortrijk, … etc. Look for a store in your neighborhood and try out this new perfume.

I will soon develop this product on my Instagram stories.

Thanks for reading my dear

Monday.. that day again

Hello there lovely people!

It’ is a new week.. or like Alicia Keys said ‘It’s a new daaaay’. Who’s ready? The answer will probably be ‘nobody’. Why? Because everyone hates Monday. Like seriously!! But let me inspire you on this Monday.

If you hadn’t already, now is the perfect time to pick out your clothes for this week. 

I have this pair of jeans which I recently bought. It fits super nicely. Now just imagine that this pair of jeans is the only one clean but you only have time this Wednesday evening to wash your clothes. 

Well, don’t stress.. I will show you how you can wear this same pair of jeans 3 times in 3 different outfits.

This is also for those who always wear their jeans with the same clothes, 2020 is the year of change darling. I know it isn’t easy to find a new outfit every single day. So get inspired.

Are you ready? I also have a extra look. Since everything is casual, I thought let’s make it more comfy for those who love that.

1, 2, 3 … 

Note that these are very simple looks for every day wear.

Ok.. ACTION !!

When you don’t know what to wear, keep it simple.

Soooooo, I hope you enjoyed.
