I watched Revolutionary Road last night. I want all the outfits... I love the colours, the simple designs and the little details.

Prancing around in Peacock

I'm not really a follower of fashion, but sometimes little things do catch my attention. I find myself being drawn to the peacock accessories I see everywhere. The peacock feather oozes elegance and I just love the colours!

Sweet Soup for Springtime eating

Spring is definitely in the air in Belgium! Can you feel it? I already feel the need for light lunches and al fresco dining! My mother gave me a great recipe for a sweet soup with a bit of a ginger kick to it. It's so simple and perfect for eating outdoors with some sunshine to reflect the bright orange colour!

sweet potato and ginger soup

Sweet potato & ginger soup:

4 sweet potatoes

1 onions

2 cm fresh ginger

1l chicken stock

1 dl milk

2 tsp olive oil

salt & pepper

Peel the potatoes and cut them into pieces.
Heat the oil and sweat the onions.
Add the potatoes and the sliced ginger.
Pour the stock into the mixture and leave it to simmer for 20 minutes at a low heat.
Mix the soup, add the milk and pepper & salt to taste.
Done! Add a little sour cream if you like...

Retro Cosmetics

It's so difficult to find eyeshadow that isn't glimmering and shiny. I always go for the matte colours, but I hardly find any, there is always some shimmer to it. I like a look that is soft and matte... But I may have to change my mind. And this is why:

In my quest for truly gorgeous retro make-up, I recently stumbled upon Besame cosmetics. These products are so beautifully packaged I don't even care if my eyelids are so shimmery that people have to wear sunglasses! If you are looking for retro glamour, search no more!

I know I sound like an advertisement, but I really mean this, it's so pretty I want to have the whole range. To prove it I'll show you the difference between my matte and perfectly fine nivea eyeshadow en the besame one:

I'm so sorry I neglected this blog for so long. I have been so busy with getting the webshop online. But it's finally here and I am proud to present: Lucille !

I have a modest collection now, but I'm definitely going to add new items very soon. I hope you all are well and I will be catching up with you and your blogs in the next few days! x
