Saturday brunch

I've had such a lovely weekend! Saturday i went for a brunch with my family and afterwards i went shopping in Antwerp with my boyfriend. The place we went to for the brunch is called hotel Van der Valk, my favourite brunchspot! It was so lovely to not have to think about my thesis and internship papers for a while. Today (sunday) was more of a chillday, so i'm totally ready for the new week! :)

This post is a little bit different then usual because i want to start to involve more personal posts here on the blog, hope you like it! Let me know what you think! :) xx Annelies

Estée Lauder: Sumptuous Knockout collection

One of my worst beauty habits is that i'm so bad at replacing my mascara, i just keep using it for months and months. So these products that Estée Lauder kindly sended to me came in right on time! 

I wanted to write a little review about it because i know i will use these products everyday from now on. An eyeliner and mascara are pretty much the make-up basics every girl should have i think :) The eyeliner is waterproof and does the job perfectly. There's a tiny sharper and a little rubber tip on the end that you can use to soften the line a bit, super handy! The mascara is my favourite of the two. It's really good at separating my lashes. But i think the best thing is the formula because it's very easy to put multiple coats of mascara on without it starting to clump. 

So from now on these products will be part of my daily make-up routine. I'm also planning to do a blogpost about the skincare products i use on a daily basis, so keep an eye out for that! Are there any products you recommend that you use daily? Let me know!

Hope you had a great start of the week guys! xx Annelies

Pink bomberjacket

Looks who's new to my closet :) I saw this pink bomberjacket at Mango and was immediately sold! The color is just gorgeous, it's difficult to capture it on camera so it's actually a little different in real life. Can't wait to show you this one in an outfitpost!

I recently rediscovered Tumblr again. I had an account about 5 years ago to collect all things that inspired me and after all these years i descided to give it a try again! It's perfect to browse through during the weekend :) 

You can follow me @AnneliesHellem if you have an account on Tumblr for some daily inspiration in your feed. If you don't have an account, you can check it out here

These pictures were shot during a cloudy and very very windy day, so i'm actually not satisfied about how they turned out. But it's the best i could do, all the others contained hair that went flying all over the place or a grumpy face hehe :p So here you go, hope you like them! This look is one of my favourites this season. Every piece just fits perfect together :) Happy weekend! xx

Outfit snapshot

I actually planned an outfitpost for today but i forgot my SD-card at home :(( #bloggerproblems
So here's a snapshot from an earlier look! We haven't seen any proper sunlight in like ten days now here in Belgium, so this yellow coat from Zara is very welcome during these grey times.

New mac highlighter & lipstick

I'm getting more and more into make-up lately. I already replicated a look from a tutorial on youtube which turned out pretty good :) So i tought it was time to invest in some good products! I went for a highlighter (soft & gentle) and a matt lipstick (velvet teddy).

This highlighter is absolutely worth the money! It will take me literally years to use this one up. And it's also so stunning on the skin, it gives a perfect dewy look! The woman in the store also told me that this is a popular one and i can totally understand why :)

This matt lipstick in velvet teddy is a nice nude color, perfect to wear as an everyday lipstick. The color is really subtle on my lips but it makes them look just that bit fuller.

Here i am again with my trusty camel coat :) I shot this look in between the rain (as you can see from the pictures) whilst meeting a friend in town, so i opted for this rather functional outfit. I actually really love the combo of leather and camel! Don't know if you can see it on the pictures, but i also finally had time to make an appointment with the hairdresser to make the ends of my hair a bit blonder and i'm lovin' it! I think that i'll go for even blonder in the future. Hope you had a great day so far! :) xx

Some new stuff

I've made a little pile during the exams with all the new items i've collected the past couple of months and i'm so happy to finally have the time to photograph them! :) 

The first two items are these jumpers since i reallyreally needed some stuff i could just quickly throw on. I found this white knitted jumper at Essentiel during the sale and i couldn't be happier because it was surprisingly difficult to find a good one! 

This one is from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel and i first saw it hanging in a shopping window on my way to school. I fell more and more in love with it the more i walked past it, so i decided to just go for it :) I thing it's a perfect statement sweater to wear with a oversized denim jacket or some leather pants. Can't wait to show you a look with it!

I can imagine that this bag from Skinnydip will not be at everyone's taste, but i thought it was so cool! Really love the color combination. 

And last but not least this lovely perfume by MiuMiu. I must admit that the bottle made me buy it, but the scent is also very good! I'm not so good at describing scents but i would say that it starts flowery and light but becomes more heavy and musky the longer you wear it.
