A couple of weeks ago I went to beautiful Antwerp for such an inspiring event. It was going to be about ‘unlocking your inner beauty’, which sounds quite interesting, right? ;) And it was!
We always compare ourselves with others & we’re never satisfied. Everything should be better: your job, your relationship, your social network.. It’s never enough! The only thing you see is that beautiful lady with her boyfriend having the perfect relationship, an amazing house and such great friends. But hey.. What she thinks about you, is: ‘Wow I love how independent that girl is, she has the most amazing job and really does what she loves!’ Comparing, comparing..

Goedele Leyssens ​told us her own story about struggling with her life.. Actually I recognized a lot of her struggles since my life is quite hectic at the moment. For me and for now it’s quite hard to get this personal, but haven’t we all struggled with some things lately? Shouldn’t we all love ourselves some more? E​stée​ Lauder told us we should unlock our inner beauty! Because we’re all so beautiful!

It all starts with taking care of yourself, so during the event we learned how to make some super healthy and delicious green smoothies & desserts and we learned how to do a make-up touch up of 3 minutes with some amazing new ​Estée​ Lauder products.
Feeling more confident begins with good food & feeling/looking great, don’t you think? :)

Estée​ Lauder introduced her new product called ‘Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme‘ and we got the opportunity to try this cream. First I want to say: the smell is so good! It smells so soft and fresh, I really love it!
Together with their other products you can do an amazing touch up in less than 3 minutes and feel fresh again! I already had to travel a couple of hours before the event started, so the touch up was a perfect refresher for me :) It gave my face a soft glow and I felt great again, so also more confident.

So being happy on the outside reflects on being happy on the inside and visa versa.
I think we should all compare less and think a little more about how we can unlock the best in ourselves. So my question is:
How do you unlock the best in you?

Oke, ik heb een gigantische zwak voor mooie flesjes en potjes. Bodylotion, homesprays, zeepjes, het maakt allemaal niet uit, als het er maar goed uit ziet. Ik heb dan ook een hele verzameling met vanalles en nog wat, maar nu heb ik mijn echte favoriet gevonden: de huisparfums & lichaamsverzorging van Marie Stella Maris.
Naast dat de buitenkant er super fijn uit ziet, is de geur nog beter. Deze luxe roomspray is serieus de fijnste homespray die ik tot nu toe heb gehad. Iedereen die hem ruikt is om! Waar het precies naar ruikt weet ik niet.. *zoekt het even op*
‘Een sprankelende geur van witte thee, met citrustonen van bergamot en citroen’. Je moet ‘m gewoon ruiken, heerlijk! Ook de geurkaars verspreid de geur perfect door mijn fijne huisje, yes, ik ben fan!

Okay, I’ve got a weakness for beautiful looking bodylotions, homesprays, soaps etc. I buy everything if it looks great ;)
And yes, now I definitely found my favoriet good looking roomspray and soap: the ones from Marie Stella Maris.. They smell like heaven!
The Luxe Roomspray is seriously the best roomspray I’ve ever had (and I had a lot of them already). ‘A clean fresh aroma of white tea with citrus accords of bergamot and lemon’. You should try it, it’s amazing! Also the scented candle is such a great one! Yep, Marie Stella Maris got a new fan!

THAT WHITE HAIR AGAIN

Het is alweer bijna twee weken geleden dat ik mijn haar weer even een makeover heb gegeven. Stiekem miste ik mijn witte lokken best wel, vooral zo naar de zomer toe heb ik altijd behoefte aan wat nieuws & fris, dus TADAA! Daar is mijn witte haar weer :)
Ook gelijk weer een strakke bob tot op de schouder. Nu nog hopen dat die ellendige lokken aan de voorkant eens gaan groeien, zodat ik echt alles op 1 lengte kan knippen.

It’s almost two weeks ago since I decided to go for a new hair makeover. Actually I missed my white hair, escpecially when summer is coming, so here are my white locks again :)
Also went for a shorter bob, the only thing I’m really begging for right now is that the locks on the front will grow finally..

THOSE CHLOÉ ESSENTIALS

You know that feeling when you’re totally into a designer/brand and would love to have every single item of it?
I got a love affair with Chloe at the moment. We all know the Faye bag, which is still one of my favorites.. And I’m super in love with the Hudson right now. But next to those amazing bags, Chloe is the perfect brand for perfumes & sunglasses.
It’s kind of a habit of mine to buy a new perfume and some sunnies for my summer holidays, so these two pieces are flying with me to Thailand in February: the new Love Story eau de toilette & the Carlina Square sunglasses.

LOVE STORY EAU DE TOILETTE
Yes, the Love Story continues.. The first Love Story perfume came out a few years ago. Now it’s time for a new one. It has such a fresh & soft smell like the old Love Story perfume, but this one is just a little bit more floral & more sensual. Exactly what I like for Spring/Summer! It’s available in stores from the beginning of February :)

CARLINA SQUARE SUNGLASSES
These are just rad! Finally found the perfect sunnies which are outstanding & delicate at the same time.
The glasses are big and super 70’s! Love the delicate & peachy frame. So happy with it!
Will show you some pictures where I’m wearing it on Instagram soon!
Find the sunnies & many more amazing designer shades on Red Hot Sunglasses
And last but not least: you’re able to shop with 10% discount on their webshop (including sale) by using code SIETSKE10Happy shopping!

I FELL IN LOVE WITH KIEHL’S

22 December, 2015

Sometimes you find some new beauty products & want to tell everyone about it..
This time I received an amazing package full of beauty products of Kiehl’s. I know they would send my some products to try since they opened a store in Amsterdam, but I didn’t expect a package as huge as this one! I felt like a little girl in a candy shop. Heard a lot positive things about the brand, so couldn’t wait to try the products. The products are created by pharmasists & I think that exactly why they’re so good.

Some of the products are my new favorites & are definitely doing a wonderful job, so that’s why I want to share my thoughts about these products with you:

1. MIDNIGHT RECOVERY CONCENTRATE
Let’s start with my favorite of all of these. This oil smells a little spicy and feels really soft to your skin. Normally I’m not a fan of oils, since they stay oily and don’t feel like that they hydrate the skin, but this one is goooood! It absorbs very quickly and you just need 2 or 3 drops every evening.
After using it for like 4 days my skin already looked better and softer.

2. CREME DE CORPS
I haven’t use it a lot already, but the texture of the cream feels really good to the skin.
When you’re using it for like 10 days it will provide a skin texture heretofore unattainable. It hasn’t a perfume in it, which is a good thing I think.

3. ULTRA FACIAL CLEANSER
This PH balanced cleanser is gentle for every skin type. You only need a small finger tip of the cream and have to massage it into damp facial areas. Then wash it off with some luke-warm water.

4. ULTRA FACIAL TONER
Also one of my favs! After cleansing your skin it feels really great to apply some of this toner to your face with a cotton pad.
Also PH balanced and non-alcoholic so perfect for every skin type.

5. AMINO ACID SHAMPOO
With some coconut oil in it, this is a great shampoo that softness your hair. It contains wheat protein which is a wonderful ingredient for your hair.

6. ULTRA FACIAL CREAM
My third favorite: I love to use this cream in combination with the oil.. One day the oil, another day this cream. Also this cream makes my skin look so much better. It really smoothness my whole face and looks great already after using it a couple of days.

7. CREAM EYE TREATMENT WITH AVOCADO
And the last favorite so far: this eye cream. When applying it, it feels so refreshing. That’s why I really love to use it in the mornings.
In Winter my skin around my eyes can feel quite dry, but this cream moisturizes the delicate eye area. Perfect!

8. HYDRO-PLUMPING RE-TEXTURIZING SERUM CONCENTRATE
Actually I haven’t use this one enough already to tell you anything about it. What it promises to do: Intensively hydrate and youthfully plumps skin by smoothing fine lines & rough textures. Hmm.. While reading this I have to use it more often! ;)

Do you use some products of Kiehl’s? Which one do you recommend?
