"How To Take Care Of Your Jubblies?" xoxo

1 comments

Hi Lovies!

Lets talk about our Girls... Since we are all amongst women, we should be able to talk openly about taking care of our breasts. Because a beautiful bust is only partly a gift from nature, but mostly the result of the care you take!


To begin with, wearing an appropriate bra is 50% of the work. But most women don't wear the right bra..how is that? Mainly because most of us don't know how to choose the right one. Solution? Ask the lady  in the store to assist you in finding the right bra in size and fitting. 

Tip: Don't forget to wear a sports bra during exercise, it will give you extra support.


Make sure you look after your weight, because keeping your weight stable is essentially for preventing damaging effects (for example stretch marks) on your chest region. If you have the so called 'jojo-effect' your breasts will eventually start to sag. Therefore, a proper health program should be followed.


A frequent examination of your breasts is very important. For instance, I do a self-exam every two weeks because in the past I have had a breast lump that had to be surgically removed. 

If you feel any pain, swelling or notice a change of colour on your skin or nipple, please seek medical care. Keep in mind that breast cancer is very common, It can happen to anyone!


Another way of nursing your breasts is through proper massage. This massage will not increase the size of your breasts, but it will make them firm! Massaging your girls, improves the elasticity of your skin and helps to prevent premature wrinkles or sagging.

Recently I started using the 'Lovely Jubblies' cream from Lush (€27,95/100g) that is perfect for a 'boob massage' with 'Perky racks' as a result, yes girls, the only way is up!




Take care of your finest features with Mother Nature’s finest ingredients. The brilliant breast cream from Lush is packed with tightening meadowsweet infusion and firming tiger lily petals to help fight the forces of gravity

With the help of beeswax and organic oils of almond and avocado, your melons will be soft and supple!

How to use?

Smooth a generous amount over your d├ęcolletage area and leave your cleavage smelling like a fresh floral bouquet of orange blossom, rose, jasmine and ylang ylang.

Personally I Love this product, the smell is amazing and if this keeps my girls proud and fierce, then why not use this every single day!? I'm hooked!


You can purchase the 'Lovely Jubblies' cream HERE






Conclusion: no matter what the size and shape of your breasts is, in order to keep them young and healthy, you will have to take good care of them! Go spread the word!



Until Next Time!

Hi Lovies!


If you’re still looking for the perfect mineral foundation that gives great coverage, has an excellent quality and easy application then this review is definitely made for you! 

I recently got to try the Alexami Perfect Puff foundation and blush and this is my experience..



Do you ever feel like mineral cosmetics are too hard to use and the application is too messy? That is no longer true with the Alexami Perfect Puff application!



Alexami Perfect Puff foundation and blush have a convenient, anti-bacterial puff packaging with mirror lid. I am so impressed with the quality and well designed packaging of the Alexami Perfect Puff  -  Even when you are not experienced with applying make up, you'll find that this Perfect Puff miracle is very easy to apply - Anyone can use it!




Alexami says: Keep your complexion looking flawless ON THE GO with Alexami Perfect Puff Minerals. Quick and easy to apply, perfect for busy women on the go. Alexami mineral foundation powder is a concealer, foundation, finishing powder, and offers high sun protection naturally - all in one quick and easy application. It gives your skin the appearance of a flawless glowing complexion while allowing your skin to truly breathe. It's light, yet still gives you full coverage without clogging pores or irritating your skin. 





The packaging fits perfectly in your handbag! It’s small, cute and the perfect size for anyone on the go with its screw on lid and mirror.

Once you open the lid you have the puff applicator, just tip the compact upside and dab it around your face by applying pressure to the powder puff. Once you have enough product dispensed you can buff the foundation/blush in circular motion on your skin. Easy as that!





The coverage is buildable and blends out really well with the puff applicator. The product comes out lightly and evenly, so don’t worry about applying too much.




The mineral founadtion and blush feel great on the skin, are lightweightand have a great coverage. The products don’t clog the pores and give a nice finish to the skin. Alexami Cosmetics are vegan, cruelty free, non toxic and safe. A GREAT PLUS!




I would definitely recommend this product - it's really great for those who have sensitive skin, want easy and non messy application and want a travel friendly product (great for touch ups). These are definitely great for everyday use!

I tried out the colour Ivory for the foundation and the colour Coral Pink for the blush. 


Alexami perfect puff foundation and blush are available at following places: Alexami Cosmetics



Do you use mineral cosmetics? Would you try using a mineral foundation or blush with a puff applicator?

Until Next Time!

"Primark Makeup Remover Wipes" xoxo

Hi Lovies!

I have a great find for you today! For those of you who Love shopping at Primark, check out their 4 in 1 Facial Cleansing Wipes. They’re sooo cheap and do an awesome job




Primark sells the ‘regular’ wipes (pink one) and the wipes that are especially developed for sensitive skin (white pack). I tried out both! To me they are equally good, but for those ladies with sensitive skin, be sure to use the white pack.The wipes come in an awesome two-pack, and are only €1,50/two-pack. Aweesoommmee!



Why are they called ‘4-in-1’? Because they claim to cleanse, tone, moisturize and remove makeup all at once!  



Even though the wipes feel a bit scratchy in your hands, they are actually very soft on the face. In terms of moisture , the wipes are not too soggy but equally not too dry. Perfect!

How to use?
I only have to use one wipe to remove all of the makeup. And the best part is that the wipes don’t leave an oily residu or the opposite: dry out my skin.




I’ve been using these facial wipes for over a month now and I really like them! I never in a million years would have guessed that facial wipes that are so cheap could remove my makeup without causing my skin to break out. But I definitely changed my mind about that, they don’t cause breakouts and most importantly: they do a great job! 

A twin-pack retails for €1.50 and each pack contains 25 wipes. No need to wipe off your glasses.. yeah you read it correctly.. that’s 50 facial wipes for just €1.50. Next time you’re at Primark, don’t forget to grab these on your way out! 




Until Next Time!

"Going to the Sun?" xoxo

0 comments

Hi Lovies!

Are you ready for the sun? I sure am! Here in Belgium there’s no sun to be seen, but if you Lovies are planning on going on a vacation or you are living in a sunny country, I have a great tip for you Ladies!


Australian Gold is a brand that I reviewed before,  it’s a tanning brand that has managed to make its mark in the industry. With numerous tanning lotions, Australian Gold is definitely one of the most popular in the world today.



I had the opportunity to try one of their popular products called Hemp Nation Moisturizing Tan Extender with Hemp Seed Oil. My opinion?  


The pure Hemp Seed Oil in this tanning product is the ultimate treasure. It truly moisturizes the skin instantly and keeps it moisturized for a long period of time while delivering real benefits. 
I didn’t really had the opportunity to get my tan on (Belgium weather, what you gonna do ‘bout it?) So I can’t tell you from my own experience if the tan really lasts longer. But I did some research on other blogs and the overall opinion is that most of the Ladies feel like their tan lasted longer. I can say that my skin feels really hydrated, which is probably thanks to the age Defying Blend of ingredients that include vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B5 and soft focus microspheres. 





This product also includes an incredible trio of some of my favorite ingredients such as shea butter (LOVE!), jojoba and glycerin that work together to keep the skin hydrated. 




Now on to the smell! When a skin product is intended for sunny weather, I always hope that the smell can be associated with tropical beaches, cocktails and hot temperatures…and oh yes! The smell is definitely more on a tropical wavelength with hints of passion fruit, mango, coconut, etc. 


If I have to say something negative about this fab product it would be that although this tanning lotion includes natural ingredients, it is not 100 percent natural, nor is it organic. And if you are not a fan of passion fruit, mango or coconut, or any kind of fruity scent that is popular in a tropical climate, you may find the smell of this tanning lotion a little too fruity. 
You can purchase this lotion at your nearest specialised tanning salon for €19,50. But prices may vary depending on whether you purchase a sample size (€5,50) or full size of this tanning lotion. Would I purchase this tanning product again? Most definitely! I Love it!  I can really recommend this tanning product to all of you Lovies!
Get your tan on!


Until Next Time!

Hi Lovies!

Exams are finnaallyyyyy overr!!! Whoop whoop! Since I feel like I neglected you Lovies, I decided to include a Giveaway in my new blogpost! Keep reading sweethearts!

Tired of your short and unelegant nails, but don't have the budget to go to the salon? Going to a party and need some fab looking nails? Look no further my Dear, I have the perfect solution for you!

Elegant Touch is the UK's leading nailcare brand, developed in the world famous King's Road, Chelsea-right at the heart of London's Celebrity and Fashion empire! Sounds promising doesn't it?

I tried out their Elegant touch, Totally Bare Short Length. I came across this brand at a press event I attended a few weeks ago. When the Lovely lady, in the picture on the rightexplained the advantages of these nails, I just had to try them! What do you mean, me, a beauty addict? ;)

My Experience:

The nails are very easy to apply and fit perfectly. I was amazed - I must admit, in the past I never had any good experiences with home-kits. The nails in the home-kits usually looked unnatural and applying them was a real struggle. That's why I stick to Gel nails. But going to a salon every month can be very expensive, so thank God Elegant Touch for developing these nails!   I'm telling you, this time was different! The glue (included) is strong enough to make the nails stay put for at least a couple of days and the nails require no filing or adjustments. Great! 

Since the nails are totally blank, you can create your own look. I applied a bit of natural looking nail polish, to finish the look.

How to apply the Elegant Touch nails: 

  • Select a nail that's closest to the size of your natural nail
  • Prepare your natural nails using a buffer (included). This will remove all the grease from your nails, making it easier to apply the nails
  • Spread a thin even layer of glue onto your entire nail
  • Place nail to, but not touching your cuticle
  • Press nail firmly for approximately 5 seconds ( I pressed for 20 seconds, just to be sure) until bonded
  • To remove use the Elegant Touch 'Get 'em off'. Do not forcibly remove, it will damage your natural nails.

Why should you buy the Elegant Touch nails?

  • One Elegant Touch package includes enough nails to apply them twice! So it's definitely worth the price!
  • The nails are made with very flexible material which gives it a more natural fit
  • You can snap off the tabs, so the nails require no filing!
  • A very cheap and elegant alternative for Gel nails
  • Applying the nails takes only minutes
  • The result lasts up to 10 days
  • The nails look very natural
  • You'll get loads of compliments;)
