Event: Philips Summer Cocktail

Sorry for the lack of updates, but currently I'm going back to school and don't have so much time to blog.

This was an event from in the summer and was held at Summer Josephine's. 
In the summer it's a cocktailbar which I really loved, because it's was an ideal place to held the presentation from the new products from Philips. 
When I arrived, we were immediately invited to drink a cocktail. 
There were different boots where you could checked out the new innovations from Philips: food, beauty and coffee. 
We could taste smoothies, coffee and more.

The products which immediately catched my eye was of course the beauty section.

Philips brings out some new attachments for the VisaPure Advanced. 
One is for the subcutane reflex therapy for the skin and the other one is for tired eyes.


Then you have the products for permanent hair removal. 
I was very curious about these, because I already tried several methods to remove my hair from my bikini line and none worked. 
For waxing I needed help and also tried hair removal by a beauty parlour. 
Philips brings out a new device: the Lumea Compact. It's a smaller format and is also cheaper. 
There are also beautypens to remove the hair from your face.


The Philips Moisture Protect hairdryer measures the temperature from your hair with a sensor.
The temperature automatically will be reduced when the hair will be to warm. 
The same with the straightener.

 

Then you have also the Airstyler, a brush who blows dry air and where you can style your hair.


Philips also brushes for oral care. The Sonicare Diamond Clean is for whitening and plaque removal. 
It removes 5x more plaque than a normal toothbrush. 
For charging you put the toothbrush in a glass (like you can see in the picture). 
Then there is the Airfloss. It uses pressurized air and microdroplets to clean the spaces between your theeth.


This is a non-beauty product which catches my eye: the Saeco GranBaristo Avanti. 
It's a coffee which uses Bluethooth technologie. 
Trough the Saeco Avanti-app you can make your own personalized coffee. 
An example: when you come home and you sit in your care, you take your iPhone or iPad, set your preferences and the coffee will be made.



Thank you Philips for the invite! It was a wonderful event!

Event: Re-Opening LEE Store Antwerp


Last thursday I was invited (together with a my friend Natalie) to the re-opening from the LEE Store in Antwerp.
The brand is celebrating 125 years LEE.
So they decided to make-over there stores in big cities in the world.

After Paris, Antwerp was honored to be redesigned.
They made the store with a lot of wood, which I really loved when I entered the new store.
I also love the tiny details like the picture frames, the little guys in LEE outfit and the belts where the clothing racks where hung up.
Some models showed also the new Fall/Winter collection 2014.

There was also a lot of foodies, drinks and there where 2 female dj's for the great music.

Review + Swatches: Givenchy Blush Mémoire de Forme Pop-up Jelly Blush Rose Extravagant


When I saw this blush from the Givenchy Beauty Fall 2014 I was immediately intrigued. 
It is a jelly blush in the color "Rose Extravagant". 

When you open the blush there's a cover before you can see the blush. That's because the blush is very jelly and that you won't spill everything on the table of floor. 
You really have to open the cover very carefully. 

When the cover is opened you see a jelly substance in a really hot pink blush color. 
You only take a little bit on your fingers, because otherwise you look like a clown if you put the color on your cheeks.

You can go for a soft, medium or hard look with this blush. 
It's easy to apply and really smooth and has a nice color of pink like you can see in the picture.
I toned it a little bit down.

The blush costs € 36 ($ 37.00) and is available online and in perfumery's.
