Travel: France – Croix, Villa Cavrois

Posted on Updated on


A couple of weeks ago, I went on a daytrip with my best friend Katrien. She had organised the day as it was a belated surprise for my birthday, so I didn’t have a clue where we would go.

The week ahead

Posted on Updated on


I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I’ve got some ab fab posts in store for you this coming week, let me tell you all about them…

On Monday I’ve got the second part of my current favourite beauty products. On Tuesday I take you to my neighbourhood once again. This time we’ll visit the shop of a friend of mine: “De Wael lingerie and nightwear”.

Thursday we travel to Croix in the north of France, where I visited a fabulous modernist villa. And Saturday’s outfitpost is still in the making so a bit more patience for that one 🙂

And now I’m off if you don’t mind… off enjoying a lovely Sunday lunch with friends and family… what more can you wish for?!

Love, Kathleen

Every week I write a beauty review and often that review is based on me using the product for a couple of weeks. But would I keep on using it? Was the product thàt good that I would buy it again?

Beauty: Urban Decay – Naked 2 eyeshadow palette

Posted on Updated on


I have been using MUA, Catrice and Essence eyeshadow palettes for the last couple of years and I am actually quite satisfied with them. They are cheap, come in various colour combinations and I didn’t have to feel guilty buying a new palette when the others aren’t finished yet.

But a couple of months ago I levelled up… I bought this Urban Decay palette (Naked 2) and I really wanted to know… is it worth the fuss?! Read on to find out!
