Blogmas #10 + Blogmas #11

My Benefit advent calender was really exciting for the past 2 days. Two products that I've been wanting to try for a long time. The Stay Flawless 15h primer and Benetint. How good can this get.
I hope that from now on I'll be getting more of these exciting goodies.

Blogmas #9

Hey guys,

I'm sorry I didn't do an update yesterday. I was having a bad day. I was honestly in such a bad mood that I couldn't be bothered to write a new blogpost. It started out in the morning. I opened up my Benefit advent calender and guess what was in it. Stupid sticky notes. I was so pissed, I can't even explain. I know that sounds really stupid, but guys I paid nearly €100 on this thing. This is just getting ridiculous.

Blogmas #7

Today was a pretty standard day. I didn't do anything special at all. 
I had a little trouble getting out of bed this morning after last night's concert. I had so much fun yesterday. It's been two years since I last saw Bryan Adams live in concert and it was just as great as I remembered. I got my sister totally on board. She liked his music too, but she was much of a fan. I think after last night that changed quite a bit.

Blogmas #5

Today was the first day I saw a house burn. Like an actual fire. One of the houses that is situated next to my work went up in flames. I never thought a fire could spread that fast. I mean, you hear about it, but you can't imagine it unless you're actually witnessing it. 
It all happened around 2 o'clock. The street was starting to fill with smoke so we went outside to see where it was coming from and it turned out to be coming from one of our neighbors. We weren't even sure at first if it was an actual fire, because it was just a lot of white smoke coming out of the chimney, but within 5 minutes the sky turned black and there were flames coming out of the roof.

Blogmas #4

Guys I was seriously thinking about skipping today, because I'm feeling terrible. But I like doing blogmas, which is why I'm still putting up this post, but don't expect anything amazing. 

When I woke up this morning everything was fine. I slept great, I finally had more than two hours of sleep so I was happy about that. I got up, got dressed and had breakfast. And then of course it was time for my Benefit advent calender. Today I got the 'Stay don't stray' eyeshadow primer. I already have this in my make-up collection and I use it on a daily basis. It's not my absolute favorite. That honor belongs to the Urban Decay primer potion. I know I'm only on day 4 of this advent calender, but I'm really waiting for a new product. Everything that I got up until now I already own. Omg, I sound like such an ungrateful nag right now. I promise I'm not. 

After that I put on the tv. I started watching 'The good wife' today. Anyone else watch this show. I'm really liking it so far. I'm only on episode 6, but so far so good. I really want to start watching new shows, but I don't really know what to look for. If you guys have any good suggestions you can always let me know in the comments section below. 

Around 2 o'clock I started feeling miserable. This might be TMI so I apologize in advance. Turns out it's that time of the month for me again. I was a little surprised by that because it's not supposed to be until next week. I don't know how many other of you ladies suffer from this. And yes, I really would describe this as suffering. I get an extreme migraine, my legs feel like they weigh 200kg and I'm really nauseous. I'm litterly not able to move. I just spent the rest of my day in the couch trying to sleep a little. Ironically I read an article online today in which a doctor or professor -I can't remember exactly- suggested that women should be granted payed sick leave when they're on their period. As you can imagine I'm a total supporter of that idea. I took some pain meds now, so I'm feeling a little better.  
I haven't eaten yet since having breakfast, so I don't think I will anymore 'cause it's quite late now. I'm going to shower and I'm going staight to bed after, because I have to be up for work at 5.

Blogmas #3

Today started off pretty exciting, because guess what I got in my Benefit advent calender today? That's right. I got the 'They're Real' mascara.
When I bought this calender , I got a sample size of this one already so I know I love it. 
Seriously, when this mascara was launched there was so much hype about it and I was always just like 'Yeah whatever, it's a mascara. How great can it be?'. But I was wrong. Like seriously wrong.

Blogmas #2

Today was a productive day. Well, a productive shopping day. 
I hadn't done any of my christmas shopping yet and since I had the day off I decided now would be as good a time as any to get it done. 

I also wanted to go to this one store we have in Belgium, it's called 'DI'. I read online that they are the only store in Belgium that finally sells 'Real Techniques' brushes. I've been wanting to try them for ages, because everyone seems to really like them. I know I could have gotten them a long time ago if I just ordered them online, but I wasn't willing on spending €75 on their core colletion brush set. By the way, the set didn't have all the brushes I wanted. I also wanted the expert face brush which you would have to order seperately as it doesn't come in a set and let me tell you it would have cost me a ridiculous amount of money. And boy, I'm I glad I didn't. I found them in the store and the core collection brush set was only €26. I don't think that's a lot at all for 4 brushes. And that's a whopping €49 less than buying online #WIN!

Blogmas #1

December is finally here and I couldn't be more excited, because that means there's only 24 more days till christmas. As promised I will be blogging everyday till christmas. I'm not promising it will be a life update everyday. I still want to keep things beauty and fashion related, so I might still be reviewing some products along the way. But let's start things of light and see what I've been up to today.
