Over the weekend, I became a little blown away by the number of people who told me how much they love tulips on Instagram. As Belgium is right next door to the Netherlands, we get an incredible amount of colors to choose from (see proof here). I initially picked my “color of the week” as an homage to Chanel La Romanesque Rouge Allure Velvet (which I am thoroughly obsessed with and promise to show you very soon. My eye is slowly getting back to normal), but then I realized it can’t be the only lipstick I own which is in the same family. This mini series, #TulipTuesday, will feature tulips and the prized possessions in my collection that are matchy matchy. Some of the items were limited edition or have been discontinued since, but hopefully this will inspire you to take out the pieces you own that are in the same vein and have a lot of fun with them!
Despite my pathetic knowledge about fashion, Elie Saab is one couturier I actually do know. Who can forget all the out-of-this-world gowns and dresses he creates? Being someone who wears dresses 95% of the time (naturally not couture), his aesthetics resonates well with mine. Can’t afford an Elie Saab gown? We can at least dream away with *Elie Saab Le Parfum Eau de Parfum!
Shopping the January sales could wreak havoc on the skin. Sure you can always find hand cream and lip balm in my handbag, but who has the time for reapplication when I’m zooming in and out of the stores hunting for treasure? The struggle is real! Thankfully, this year my skin can recuperate with some help from *Kenzoki Barefoot Fantasy, *Sensual Hands Balm, and *Balm for Lips to Kiss!
My wallet will forever rue the day I discovered not only is Burberry very accessible online, it offers free shipping on literally every order (I know it’s not a big deal for you US folks, but buying luxury makeup online, or at least the limited edition pieces, could be extremely tricky here). Aided and abetted by both Ann (long-time reader who has amazing taste. Need proof? Check out her Instagram) and Sara, I ordered Burberry Nude Blush Complete Eye Palette a little while back.
