Fake Tanning Routine

Hi!

I have this problem where I do NOT tan in the summer and my legs are white as snow. So, for you guys who have the same problem I’ll share my fake tanning routine 🙂

First of all, wash your legs to get the ‘durt’ off. Here I use my Rituals shower foam from the “Sakura” collection. It’s an all time favorite of mine.

Then I use the shower oil from the same line ( It’s an old packaging but it is the same 😉 ). When this oil comes in contact with water, it turns into a creamy foam.

I do not rinse out the shower oil, because if I do, the scrub will fall of my legs. So the shower oil allows the scrub to stick on my legs. I scrub my legs untill the sugar dissolves. Don’t exfoliate to much! I do it maximum once a week.

After that, I rinse everything off and use the same shower foam to shave my legs. Then I use a body butter, that day I used one of Victoria’s secret.

Let your legs dry for a while, so that they aren’t sticky anymore.

Normally I use 6 pumps of my fake tan from L’oreal, but mine is broken so I do it intuitively. Also, my self tanner from L’oreal is from last year. This season they have a new range of selftanning products on the market. I’m thinking to buy a new one from this range. So, if you guys want a review of that let me know! 🙂

The self tanner gives an instant golden glow. If you want you can wash this off but I prefer not to do that 🙂 The next day your legs are summer ready 😀

Some tips to self tanning:

  • Exfoliate!!!
  • Shave
  • Hydrate
  • Less is more
  • Use old towels
  • Do it in the morning, otherwise your bed sheets turn orange
  • Let it dry enough
  • Use a blow dryer to dry the selftanner
  • Use a self tan mitten
  • Use baby powder in the creases of your body. The sweat creates orange streaks!!!
  • Wash your hands or they will be orange

 

DISCLAIMER: This blogpost was NOT sponsered by Rituals or L’oreal at all. These brands are just one of my favs 😉

Hope you guys enjoyed it!!!

Vacay to Warsaw and Krakow

Hi!

During the Easter holiday I went on a trip with a friend to Warsaw and Krakow in Poland. I know? Poland? That was also my first thought… 😀

My friend (who also has a blog btw 😉 check hers out at Yaelle_GT ) studies tourism, so she had to make a trip (of choice) for her thesis and she had chosen Warsaw (the capital of Poland) and Krakow. She booked everything and planned everything out for us as if she worked at a real travel agency.

thumb_img_5614_1024Her parents were so kind to drive us to Charleroi, where we booked one night at the “VanderValk Airport Hotel”. Early in the morning (I think it was like 3am) we took a shuttle bus (from the hotel) to the “Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL)”. It was a 10min drive to the Airport. When we arrived, we had a lot of time left to go through the airport control. We flew with Ryanair. It was my first flight with them and it was very nice. It is often said that you don’t have a lot of leg space but I was suprised my long leggs had all the space they needed :). It was an (+/-) 2hour flight to Warsaw.

When we arrived, we took the bus and then the train to the city centre of Warsaw. In Warsaw, we emediatly went to our hotel (Novotel) because we were exhausted… I took a shower and putted some fresh and light clothing on because it was freaking HOT there!! Yeah didn’t saw that coming right? Me neighter 😉 It was like 26 degrees!! For us (in Belgium) that’s very hot for a regular day during the Easter holiday. Even for a summer day in Belgium that’s still hot :p Moving on… We went exploring the city. In Warsaw you have the old city and the new. We stayed in the new section, so we explored that first.

Out of our window we could see a big building, we went there first. It was like a big expositon building with a lot of different expositions. There, we took a few pics.

If we walked a little further we saw a big modern building. It was the biggest mall I ever saw in my entire life 😮 I was so happy to see they had an Victoria Secret, Bath and Body Works and a Sephora!! I didn’t buy anything in the first 2 stores but at the Sephora I bought myself a new Urban Decay primer potion. I also pushed my friend a little bit to buy the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. OOPS sorry not sorry 😉 It is the best of the best and she really likes it! After we saw every store in that gigantic mall we strolled a little further. We saw a lot of pretty buildings.

When we saw enough and when our feet started to hurt (hum hum my feet 😉 ) we went back to our hotel. My friend refreshed herself and I did her make up that night with her brand new palette and gave her little tips and tricks. We had a lot of fun!

We went to the Hardrock Café for dinner. We shared a big plate of tapas and I took not 1 but 2 gigantic and very delicious (non-alcoholic) cocktails. YOLO 😉

That was Day 1!

Day 2…

After we had a lovely breakfast at our hotel we went to the “Lazienkowski” park. It was a sunny day and took a lot of pics (for insta ofcourse 😉 )

We took the bus to this park and to the old town of Warsaw. There we took a nice long stroll and ate some pasta at a pretty terrace. We also went late night shopping that night. (I don’t have pictures of that, I was too busy shopping 😀 )

Day 3…

We had to leave the hotel early to take the train to Krakow. In Krakow we took a tram to our new hotel David Boutique. It wasn’t the nicest hotel but it worked for me. In Krakow, we took a city pass. By this, we were able to take the public transport for free and even some musea were for free. I really recommend taking the city pass when you come to Krakow. It wasn’t that expensive ( I think it was 35euro’s). We took a lot of trams to move us around.

After we settled us, we took the tram to the big market of Krakow. We ate a sandwich and drank some coffee at Costa. We walked trough the big halls and went to a museum (It was for free with our city pass). What we really wanted, was sitting in a horse carriage 😮 It was soo princess like, it was amazing!! But it was a bit expensive… It was (+/-) 50euros for 1hour (I think).

Afterwards we also climbed a tower to see the city from above. Our leggs hurted so much the next days 😀 Plus I had like 12 blisters 😦

That evening we ate at Plac Nowy 1. We both ate a hamburger and some fries. It is very cheap to eat in Poland. The public transport is also very cheap (1euro for a bus or a tram). It was a delicious dinner.

 

 

Day 4…

On day 4 we walked to the Schindler’s list Factory museum. It was a very big and one of the nicest musea I’ve visited. We walked because our city passes were expired… The old pharmacy in the ghetto is certainly a must to see. It is also for free with your city pass.

My friend also booked tickets for Auschwitz and Birkenau for the late afternoon. We went by bus to Auschwitz. There were a lot of people to visit one of the most known concentration camp. It was really weird to realise that a lot of people died there… It was really impressive. At Auschwitz there were a lot expositions but the vision of all the hair they found of women really took my breath away. Also everyone thinks Auschwitz is big but think again… Birkenau (wich is located 5min further of Auschwitz) is much larger. I was shocked by how big it was. It took us 10-15min to get to the other side of it and knowing it is wider then it is long… Can you imagine?

I will post some pics of Auschwitz and Birkenau down below. If you think this event in the history may shock you, just don’t look and skip it. Or be brave and embrace our history… 😉

When we got back in Krakow we ate our first KFC (haha it was very tasty!). The morning after we had to go home 😦

I hope you guys will consider to go to Poland it’s really worth it!

Hope you guys enjoyed it!!!

New NYX Cosmetics Store

 

Hi!

First of all I’m so SOOOO sorry I been absent from my blog  😦 It’s been a year now (I think) that I didn’t post anything. My only explantion is: I just forgot 😦

BUT let me make it up for you guys! Because… Today I’ll write about some beauty stuff!!!

thumb_img_5520_1024So, on the 23th of June 2016 the FIRST NYX Cosmetics store in Belgium at Gent opened! I was sooo excited to hear that one of my favorite (and cheapest) make up brands came to little Belgium.

I made plans with a friend of mine, to travel by train to Gent. No sooner said than done, we arrived in Gent. The store opened at 10am. As soon as we arrived we saw a long queue through the street the store is located in. We waited for about 3 hours in line (when it rained cats and dogs) before we could get in the store, but it was worth it!

We got a lot of goodies while we were waiting in line. Some of the goodies were: proper corn, little miracles organic enegiser, rhubarb juice and a big lollypop. These free gifts were from the company Ddrinks (except the lollypop). Normaly, the first 250 shoppers would get a make up bag, but unfortunatly I wasn’t one of them 😦

The shop was (for my doing) big and very sleek. Everything was very organised and clean. The people, who work there, were filling the shelves continuously so everyone could get some NYX goodies. 🙂

I bought 5 NYX cosmetics products. They’re all lip products because I heard (and I saw in reviews) they’re the best quality!

So first of all I bought 2 Soft Matte Lip Creams in the colors “Sao Paolo” and “Budapest”. I searched matching lipliners with those colors and this is what I found: 1 slide on glide on lipliner in the colour “Bedrose” and 1 retractable lipliner in the color “Jewel”.

I also bought the famous Lip Lingerie matte liquid lipstick in the colour Embellishment. the price tag for all of this was about 37euros. I think that’s very cheap for 5 good lipproducts!

After we got out of the store, we couldn’t leave Gent without some more shopping damage ;).

We went to lush and of course I had fallen for the lush bathbombs :p. I bought the “Intergalactic” one an the “Sakura” bath bomb. My room will smell nice now to Lush Cosmetics store.

We also went to the usual stuff like ZaraBershka and much more… But that was my day at the opening of the NYX store at Gent

If you guys want a review and/or swatches from the NYX products or the Lush bathbombs let me know in the comments down below! And please check out my social media 😉 (Links are in the “Contact me” page)

Hope you guys enjoyed it!!!
