22+3 = #GettingOlder = Making (Hard) Decisions

A little over a week ago was my 22nd birthday. Boy, time flies when you're having fun. Whilst I'm years out of the teen-zone already, I'm still regarded as 'the baby' in my circle of friends. I'm sure they're just jealous. HA! (Please don't tell my friends I said this). Aside from me becoming one year older, May marks the birthday of 9outoften as well! I can't believe my little corner on the Internet is 3 this year! Crazy, I'm telling you. I never thought people would actually enjoy reading what I've got to say, and have to say that through blogging and meeting you lot, I've grown as a person and met the greatest and loveliest bunch. Yes, I'm talking about YOU. Honestly, I didn't think anyone would like to listen to what I had to say. And to see how my journey's been, I'm grateful for every single reader and follower. I couldn't do it without you. No, seriously.

Green Tea Galore

By now we all know how great Green Tea is. It's chock-full of antioxidants, it fights free radicals, detoxes the body and burns fat. It's no surprise that Green Tea may be one of my favourite drinks, and if you haven't had Green Tea flavoured ice cream before, girl you haven't lived. So when The Body Shop launched their Fuji Green Tea range, you can imagine I was in my elements.

MANSUR GAVRIEL aka) The Bag That's Sold Out Every Time It's Back In Stock

Oh, Mansur Gavriel... I love you. I love your clean designs and subtle pop of colour. I love the fact your products are made from real leather in Italy and I love that – compared to other designer brands – you're in the more affordable spectrum. What I hate on the other hand, is that after getting my hands on the Bucket Bag I could never get my hands on the Large Tote. Until four weeks ago and I just know we're going to have so much fun and explore the world. End of love letter.

The New-ish Kids In Town

As a foundation junkie, I get excited when a new release comes out. I love trying out new things and I'm always on the hunt for something... better. I see it as widening my horizon and market research. So when word got out that NARS had not one, but two new foundations in the planning, I couldn't be more excited. And I'll tell you this, NARS's All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and Soft Velvet Loose Powder are not one to disappoint either.


April 8, 2015


Over the years I've had to fly quite a few times, either because of a trip or special occasions that required me to fly back home, as I lived in Paris, London and now Leeds. Aside from having built quite an OK miles balance, I've created a tradition of buying (at least) one lipstick in duty free. Strangely they all tend to be CHANEL purchases, but what can I say... Me and CHANEL, we're just going to be best buds for life. Although their bags and shoes would be my first pick if I had the money, what better way to commemorate an occasion through a lipstick that I can wear whenever I am. (And that won't leave me bankrupt and in debt after one purchase).

The Empties Edit #5

You wouldn't guess from the amount of haul posts I've published recently, but I swear I was trying to be good and finish up a load of products first. And I did. I'm really bad with collecting empties, as I try to keep my bathroom as un-cluttered as possible, so I always tend to either 1) accidentally throw them away, or 2) stash them and then have a large pile to cover. As you can see, today is the latter. I'll promise to keep it [as] short and simple [as I can].

The Skincare Booster

If you're a bit into green beauty, you may have caught a whiff of the brand Odacité and their 'Boosters'. With an overwhelmingly big range that targets pretty much any skin concern, it was rather difficult to make up my mind and decide which one I wanted (or needed) to try the first. After prepping myself with a ton of reviews and consulting with my green beauty blogging friends, I had settled for Odacité's Papaya and Geranium (Pa+G) Booster.
