The make-up find: €2.99 Calvin Klein make-up.

A little while ago, A. and I went out for some ice-cream. When our sweet treats were all gone, we went to stroll about in the town's centre. Whilst browsing through Blokker, we made an awesome discovery: Calvin Klein make-up, for €2.99 per item!
We figured it had to be genuine Calvin Klein make up since fake item are forbidden so a chain store wouldn't risk selling them. Turns out we were right! The make up is genuine, but it's cheap because it's an old collection. In any case, the products look beautiful in those little pots!

Easy Peasy Recipe: coco(a)-nut granola.

Last week I stumbled upon an amazing recipe of grain free granola. A few days later I managed to make a batch and absolutely loved it. It tasted great and kept me full throughout a busy morning.
As I was working with the ingredients I had, mine is slightly different than the original recipe, but it is definitely my new favourite breakfast!

PerBlan tooth powder review: mint vs lemon.

One hundred, that's the number of this post! Since the most viewed post of all is the PerBlan tooth powder review, I figured it be nice to make the 100th one related to that.

Recently I repurchased the tooth powder, but I got the lemon version to see if there's any I like better.
So here's a comparison of the two.

A week's worth of food.

Never in my life have I kept a food journal, but I figured I could write down what I eat every day for a week or so. It may help me eat better for I know I'm going to write it down! I always start the day with loads of water and I drink more of it throughout the day, but I haven't written down every time I drank water. Everything else is written down.

I'm a fan of bright lispticks, but when I spotted this one I was intrigued.

Adventure fund jar DIY.

I got inspired by Carl and Ellie and wanted to make an adventure fund jar of my own. I'd been looking to buy a jar for making this, but couldn't find one that I thought to be ideal. On Saturday I was browsing around my stuff in the attic and there it was: the perfect jar!
The next day I gave it a good wash and got started!

Challenge accepted.

Last week I wrote about the 30 day challenges. And not much later my sister A. and I decided to go for it. We weren't going to wait for the starting date of the Facebook event though, so we started on the 30th of May.
Here's how it's going:

New makeup stores.

On Saturday, my friend A. and I spent the day in Leuven. and we made a few new beauty store discoveries that day. She mentioned something about MAC coming to Belgium, but I said they're already here. I knew there are MAC-stores in Antwerp, Wijnegem and Brussels and Ghent, but then we spotted a shop window with a giant sticker saying that MAC is coming soon. Apart from this I made a few more discoveries of beauty stores that have opened recently in Leuven and Hasselt.
