Everyday Make Up Storage

Beauty posts/videos about make up storage and collections are some of my favorites. 

I'd like to show you my everyday make up and how I store it in my writing desk/beauty desk. The one I have was the last one in the shop and is not for sale anymore. It has some defects, but I didn't care about that. Sam Chapman (Pixiwoo) posted once a picture of her beauty desk and it was similar to mine. I really liked the design and find if practical for every day use. 

To organize my make up, I used lids from boxes and taped them to the desk so that they wouldn't move around. I was quite happy with this system, but wanted something else. A lot of shop offer draw dividers and baskets at this moment. You can find them everywhere. What caught my attention were the draw dividers from 'Hema'. For €10 you get one pack of 6 dividers. I got myself two packs and started puzzling to see how they would fit in my drawer.

How do you organize your make up?

Studio Time

The recordings from our sixth studio album 'TQE' are done! The mixing and mastering has begun. Some of you that follow me on Twitter know that I am super stoked about the songs and the mix. It is brutal! I can't wait for you all to hear the final result.

Last week we've had two more photo shoots to serve you all a wide variety of pictures, and there is still more to come!

We had a lot of fun and know that getting our asses on fire was definitely worth it. The pictures are looking hot, in every sense of the word.

Have a great week everybody!

Tasty Treasure

At my latest visit to the grocery shop, I stopped at the candy isle. You know me.

Normally I am not the person that likes fancy chocolates, but with pistachio you can always get me. I am a huge pistachio fan. Cover that in dark chocolate and chocolate mouse and I am in heaven!

Have a taste when you like what I do ;)

Outfit of the B-Day

Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes! I had a great day with family and friends.

My birthday outfit is a dress from Asos that I got some time back > Sunny Side

The lipstick that I wore was 'Lady Danger' from MAC Cosmetics. It's been lying in my collection for quite a while, but I somehow didn't get around to wear it. I love it! 

Have a lovely Sunday everybody!

Scent of the Day

Today I was going through my perfume collection. I was in the mood for something more season appropriate and decided to go for Hermes 'Eau des merveilles' eau de toilette. 

The story behind why I got this perfume some years ago. 

I was on a flight from Sao Paulo back to Amsterdam after the Mayan tour. The stewardess which was on that flight always left this very mysterious perfume trail behind when she passed by. I asked her what it was and she said Hermes 'Eau des Merveilles'. I knew I had to have it.

Top notes – Cedar, Veviter and Oak
Middle notes – Ambergris
Base notes – Lemon, Orange, Elemi and Pink Pepper

The 'Eau des Merveilles' eau de toilette is quite strong and might not be everybody's cup of tea. I like to wear it during autumn and winter, but I spray it on my clothes or scarf. This scent develops different on my skin and I prefer how it smells on my clothes.

Do any of you spray perfume on your clothes instead of on the skin? I'm curious!
