DAY & NIGHT CREAM × TEA TREE



(Images: all mine)

I bought this day and night cream about two weeks ago and i've been using it since. I've been loving the substance (some might hate it actually, because it's almost kind of watery). It's kind of in between a 'gel' and a moisturizer. 
It's very light and sinks easily into my skin, making if feel soft and moisturized.

There's literally one thing that i don't like about this cream and that's the overwhelming smell of the tea tree.. when i apply the cream, the smell is very strong. Even after applying it i still smell it for a short period of time. But thankfully, the scent of the cream fades away after 10 to 15 minutes.

I'm very pleased with this day and night cream. I've only been using it for two weeks now, but i have already noticed that if i have a spot, it will be gone in a day or two! I'm still a huge fan of the Zarqa skin care line (click here to see my review on some of their products) and the Clinique 3-steps products. But if you don't want to spend a whole lot on a day and night cream, i'd suggest you buy this one! 

Price: €1,69 (100 ml).

YVES ROCHER × HAIR REPAIR OIL

(Images: all mine)

Dry hair and damaged hair.. something i struggle with. Luckily, there are many methods out there to help solve my problems, one of them being: hair oil! A lot of people i know wouldn't even think about using a hair oil because they think it will make their hair greasy, not knowing it will make your hair softer, shiny, moisturized and look more healthy!

You could use it on wet hair, dry hair, it's really up to you! You could use it as a serum or even mix it in a home made hair mask. The list of choices is endless. It applies very easy and because it's silicone free it won't weigh my hair down! I can't exactly describe the scent, but it smells really good!

I've been using a lot of hair oils, conditioners, etc. because i really want to treat my hair better this year!
I've been horrible for the past three/four years, i would use (almost) everyday! And what's the consequence? Heat damage, breakage (a lot of it) and last but definitely not least, my curls are.. messed up, to say the least.. I'm not saying i'll never use heat on my hair again, because knowing myself, i know i will. But i do want to reduce the amount of heat and wear it curly more often, instead of always straightening my hair.

Overall, i would definitely recommend this hair oil if you want soft and shiny hair!

BLACK ANKLE BOOTS

When i saw these ankle boots i immediately knew i had to get them! They're exactly what i was looking for, high heels, black and simple. I wore them on new years eve when i went clubbing in the city with one of my best friends. I didn't break them in so you can imagine the amount of pain and blisters i had the next day... haha, not so smart! Besides the tremendous pain i had, i have to say, they're very comfortable and easy to walk with!

I bought them at Pull & Bear in Rotterdam. I literally had the last pair, i was so happy. 
The original price was 69,99- but i got them on sale for only €39,99. That's what i call a good bargain!

PERSONAL UPDATE × FGW


(Images: all mine)

Hey gals! It's been a while, hasn't it? 

I've been really bad with posting frequently, i know.. but first things first: happy new year! I hope everyone had fun celebrating with friends & family. I know i'm late but better late then never, right..?! I can't believe 2013 has flown by SO quickly. In only a month it will be FGW's  first anniversary!
I've been incredibly busy with school and life in general. The first week of school i was bombarded with exams and homework, so i really had to ease into the pattern of school again. No worries though, i'm back with some posts that i have scheduled for the upcoming week(s). 

X,
