Told you I was riding the velvet wave (damn boy, that sounds so sexual)! Also, again, pink. I guess pink + velvet is basically the apex of my style obsessions. My outfit is glamrock as hell, and I'm loving it!  I don't generally wear a belt low like this over a dress, but I felt like it worked for this particular look. Definitely retro, but that's rarely a negative thing for me.

I'm so happy I got these boots last year, I doubted my purchase for a while because they weren't exactly cheap, but I wear them all the time and they're beautiful, warm and super comfortable, so I have zero regrets. I can't recommend & Other Stories' thigh high boots enough as a more affordable alternative to the popular Stuart Weitzmans. My own boots seem to be back in stock as well, get them here! These are gorgeous as well. I love how they offer boots with a stylish mid height heel, such an underserved subcategory.

I'll be presenting my research at a conference at the Flemish parlement this Friday and I'm quite excited for that, so cross your fingers I'll rock it! Probably won't wear my thigh highs, though. Keeping it on the sartorially safe side.

Beauty: MAC Dazzleshadow and matte blush review

Beauty: MAC Dazzleshadow and matte blush review

I've had a lovely weekend spending quality time with my guy and enjoying a quick visit to Amsterdam, which I will tell you more about soon. First, let's check out some eye (and cheek) candy! MAC was kind enough to send me two of their dazzleshadows, and two matte blushes.

Beauty: Visa Lux highlighter review

Beauty: Visa Lux highlighter review

I've been on a roll reviewing highlighters lately, or at least I feel like I am! Today I'm talking about a new indie brand line of highlighters, produced and sold by a girl I met in one of my favourite Facebook groups: Beauty Squad. Beauty Squad is this place where Dutch speaking makeup lovers unite to fangirl about pretty products and each other's faces, and share info on sales and coupons etcetera. Of course there's some drama once in a while, but most of the time I love how positive, girly and supportive the group is, and I love seeing other women explore their passion for makeup. 

Paressa took the plunge to start Visa Lux cosmetics, manufacturing her own highlighters (she mixes the pigments and presses the powders herself!), and she contacted a couple of bloggers in the Beauty Squad group to test her goods and provide her with some nice pics. Let's take a look at Strawberry Milkshake!
