The ‘When I Was on Holiday’ Haul

This summer has been absolutely madness, and I can't believe it's almost coming to an end. Actually, this whole year has been crazy, and I just can't believe I'm 10 days away from sending off my dissertation to the printers and... graduate. Amidst the dissertation madness, I flew back home for a week and managed to have a short trip to Ghent, Bruges and Lille and I thought it was about time what I brought back. OK, OK. The lot of cheese, vin rouge and crates of Belgian (dark!) beer went back with us as well. The advantages of driving there, eh?

Where to Buy Korean Beauty Products?

I've always been a lover of Korean cosmetics and with it finally being ‘acknowledged’ by the masses, it makes it so much easier to get a hold of cult and must-try products. It's still hit and miss sometimes, though over the years, I think I've found a great selection of retailers that I trust. Yes, eBay does sort you out most of the time, but I'm always a bit weary of fake products and scam-artists... So, I've accumulated a list of shops and sellers that I've used, and whom I know sell authentic products.

What I've Been Loving (July 2015)

I'm a bit late with last month's favourites, but August is finally(?!) here and the countdown to freedom/hell/stress/my dissertation deadline has officially started. To everyone who's been or is going on a trip: I hate/envy you. To everyone who's on the same boat: we can do this and we'll bloody ace it. Stress is slowly starting to kick in  —I mean, how can it not with less than 4 weeks left! It's definitely taking a toll on my skin: hormonal stress + bad diet + late nights = blemishes, dull and uneven skin. Yikes. However, with my recent trip to Boots – and some other products in my stash – I managed to mix some bits and bobs that made it possible to pull myself together and make me look presentable.

In Boots We Trust

In the past year I've walked out of Boots with a white carrier bag, way, way, way too often. For reference, my friends and housemates would just snort when they'd spot me smuggling my Boots bag past them, yet again. So after a careful look at the rather daunting amount of products I have in my stash and the fact that I need to fit all my luggage in just 2 suitcases, I decided it was time to call it quits and just take a break from Boots. After a good few weeks (or months?) of going cold turkey, I popped in last week. There were so many good deals, new launches and just things I had to try —for the blog of courszeee. The things I do for you guys...

Currently Reading

Due to my assignments I haven't been reading as much as I'd like to, though somehow that didn't stop me from purchasing more books on Amazon. I love my Kindle, but I'm a sucker for good covers, so I just had to get them in paperback. As I officially had my last lecture (ever?), handed in my assignments and will be writing my dissertation over the past two months, I've given myself more time to read to take a break from academic journals. I try to read as much as I can, wherever I am, e.g., while I'm waiting, during my commute and pre-bed time. And aside from having covers that make me smile, they're such well written books that'll definitely make your Summer reading list.

FOREO Luna - The Cleansing Device You Must Try + Exclusive Discount Code!

There are so many facial cleansing devices on the market at the moment, and it's just gotten very overwhelming. For me at least. Worst thing is that most of the time they all look the same or do more harm than good. I've been using FOREO's Luna for sensitive/normal skin for the past two months and I honestly don't know why there's not more buzz about this than, let's say... the Clarisonic MIA. I've used and got both, so be prepared for a lil' smack down. OK, not really, but something like that.

Rekindled Love

It ain't a secret I've got a not so secret love affair going on with REN. We started our relationship about... 5-6 years ago – it was their ClearCalm 3 Purifying Mask – and we've never left each others side since. To celebrate their 15th anniversary, they've repackaged their all-time bestseller, the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, in a bigger, prettier bottle (75ml instead of 50ml), retailing for the same price. If that isn't a bargain...

What I've Been Loving (June 2015)

June was a bit of a weird month for me. My classes officially ended and whereas I don't know if I can say these will be the last lectures I'll attend in life (I'll report back in a year of... five?), I'm definitely done for now. My focus has been on my dissertation and blog at the moment. Not having to go to Uni every day makes it really easy for me to plan my day and write blog posts when I'm tired of reading academic journals all day. So far I'm doing great on both ends and by the time this post goes live, I'll be busy packing as I'm moving house tomorrow. Nothing too exciting, as it'll be much smaller than I'm living right now, but I'll survive. ;-)
