 Extremely excited about this parfum I recently bought.  Never thought I would spend so much on a parfum but my excuses are: I don't buy a perfume that much often. And my stash  exists out of given parfumes (my time at Douglas mostly) I like it when a perfume is a bit exclusive and not recognizable. I choose for Neroli. Love at first sight!

Le labo


We believe that there are too many bottles of perfume and not enough soulful fragrances.
We believe the soul of a fragrance comes from the intention with which it is created and the attention with which it is prepared.
We believe fine perfumery must create a shock - the shock of the new, combined with the shock of the intimately familiar.
We believe that fine perfumery must be irreverent.
We believe it is more humane to test cosmetics on New Yorkers than on animals.
We believe celebrities should pay full price.
We believe the future of luxury (hence of perfumery) lies in craftsmanship.
We believe in the soulful power of thoughtful hands: hand-picked roses, hand-poured candles, hand-formulated perfumes and handshake agreements.
We believe in the passionate souls who work close to us.
We believe in Hafiz's take on life : "Act great, dear. Always act great".
We believe New York made us this way, with a dose of Wabi-Sabi and a few lines from Thoreau.
We believe we/you should put away our modern tools and take the time to smell the roses along the way.
We believe that we are only young once, but we can be immature forever.
And we believe that explanation kills art. Therefore, forget about all of this !

Neroli 36. My initials are signed in the label! 

Neroli is another name for the essence of Orange Blossom. The unique quality of our Neroli is its sunny floral character with an extraordinarily warm, sensual base. Rose, musk, mandarin orange (slightly aldehydic), jasmine and vanilla, among other essences, complete the portrait, bringing Neroli 36 spikiness, ease, zest and heat... Well-being, elegance and charm all in a bottle.

 Dry hands. A problem that get's worse in this winter season. You have to give your hands an extra treat. I have this product for quit a few months now and I can really say I like this product! Not only for this season but also fall (or spring what is coming up) because the product feels very light on the skin. During the day is this perfect. For the night I use a serious balm.

As you all see, contouring is a big trend right now. Kim Kardashian was kind of the start of this whole hype. And now a lot of make-up brands make their own contour kit. So did Make-up studio!

Wintertimes, yeahhh (NOT!) The skin gets very dry so we need to work on that aspect.
Not only a thicker cream but a hydrating mask can get great results.
I am a big fan of the Embryolisse hydra masque but I've found a new favorite: 

"A refreshing, moisturizing masque to remedy dry, stressed skin. Use after cleansing to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Unique cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid traps moisture to deliver time-released hydration for lasting suppleness. Help stimulate skin's Natural Moisturizing Factor while lycopene-rich Tomato Seed lipids help restore skin's protective barrier, enhancing moisture levels for healthier, smoother skin. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.

Apply a smooth film to clean face and throat. Allow masque to absorb for 7 to 10 minutes. Rinse with tepid water or remove with The Sponge Cloth. Use once or twice a week as prescribed." 

I prefer to use this masque 3 times a week. And that's fine because it's very gentle. The smell is also very soft and pleasant.

I am super enthusiastic about these hair products from Original and mineral.
About 7 weeks ago I had this event to discover the brand.
I go to events much often and I am not always that excited when I experience the products myself as I was during the event.
And I aso have difficult hair and tried so many products.
I for searching for some hair products that would be less aggressive for hair (and scalp)
Tadaaa! After 7 weeks I can honestly say: Love this stuff.
I am using the next three products

 I am an extreme tea addict. I easily drink 8 cups a day. It could be 10. I only drink green, mint, jasmin, camomile and nettle tea. Sometimes lemon but then also green tea lemon.
I only drink camomile and nettle tea because their healthy and good for a lot of things so I don't drink them every day.
Green tea and mint tea I drink every single day! I just love it. I'm not so in to tastes like strawberry or just English tea. No you can really make me happy with green tea!
And some green tea has no tast at all. I hate when that happens but hey..
I found a new favorite tea from Tea Bar! I've tried 3 different ones:
Marrakech mint bio, Hello sunshine bio and sensei sencha. That last one is by far the best!
Green with a touch of lemon.  You can really taste how pure the tea from Tea Bar is.

What is your favorite kind of tea flavor? And have you ever tried Tea Bar before?
