Spa Secrets Miracles of Bali


Recently Kruidvat launched a new luxury line called Spa Secrets. Spa Secrets is inspired on traditional bathrituals from all over the world. 
The products costs between € 2,99 and € 4,99. 
You also don't find the name Kruidvat on the products. 
That's because they want that you're buying luxury products instead of budget. So you can also give them as a present.

There are tree different lines:
  • Treasures of Morocco (argon oil and rose extracts)
  • Traditions of Japan (lotus and bamboo)
  • Miracles of Bali (coconut water and frangipan)
I  bought the shower gel from the Miracles of Bali line. It smells very like summer, flowery, sweet and of course frangipan. 
I didn't smell anything of the coco water but on the ingredients list they have set coconut water. When I tried it under the shower it was very smooth and smelled really nice. 
The sentence is not very strong, so this a winner for me. I didn't even smell it the next morning.
The shower gel costs € 2,99 and is available at Kruidvat in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Primark Summer 2015


.A couple of days ago Summer 2015 has started. Everyone is going to festival all around the world.
 Going out for a drink in pop-up bars, where you can have the best cocktails, served by hot bartenders. People are going on holiday. 
They are laying on the beach or going for a swim in the pool or the sea and visited all these beautiful cities where we never had been before.

I'm not going to a sunny country, but instead I'm going to Amsterdam. 
I've never been there before, so it's going to be really interesting. Unfortunately there is still no Primark in Amsterdam (it will open at the end of 2015). 
But instead I can buy already the summer clothes in Hasselt which is only 20 minutes away from my home.

The theme for the new Primark summer campaign is 'The Land of Summer'. It's seperated in two themes: Desert Dreamer and Ibizia Surf. 
Desert Dreamer is a collection with inspiration from the seventies: long dresses, rich patterns and textures. 
Ibizia Summer is inspired by bright colors, tropical prints, oversized hats and batik prints.

My favourites are the oversized floppy hat, the black fringed skirt, 
the white shirt with open shoulders, the white lace shorts, the beige shorts and the gorgeous black playsuit with lace wings.

Exhibition: Dries Van Noten Inspirations

 

When I was on holiday in Antwerp, I went to visit the exhibition from Dries Van Noten. It's the very first time that Dries Van Noten expose his oeuvre in an exhibition. 
First the exhibition was to see in Paris at the Les Arts Décoratif museum. It's a walk down to his artistic world and a look inside his creative process.

The exhibition is filled with many influences from Spain, Mexico and Romania. 
Also the pop and art culture is represented in Inspirations. 
Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Francis Bacon and Damien Hirst they all have spot in the exhibition.

Definitely a must-see if you are in Antwerp. You can visit Dries Van Noten Inspirations until 19th July 2015.
