Beauty | On getting ready in the morning

Usually when getting ready in the morning, we are in a tight schedule. Even 5 minutes of delay –what to wear! / where are my shoes! / mascara in the eye! – can cause some serious stress. That’s why we tend to do everything in the same order every morning, to make sure we’re getting ready in time. I would love to say it works this way, but with me being super chaotic, getting ready on time isn’t my strong suit.

Of course getting ready covers more than taking a shower. We’re talking about shower, make up, hair, outfit, breakfast, and sometimes lunch to go; in less than an hour. I came up with a pretty solid schedule that works really well for me. I have to admit that leaving the bed 5 minutes later screws up this whole schedule and makes me take one (ok.. sometimes two) busses later. Guilty.

My schedule involves a lot of running, doing multiple things at once – which often fail– and applying the final touches of make up on my way to work. I travel on public transport so it’s totally safe! ;). But here’s a tip; Do all the things you need to do at home, at home and all the others (like breakfast, final touches of make up) on your way, or at work. That saves you lots of time, which you can spend on perfecting your hair.

What is your key to getting ready on time in the morning?

Make up favorites



Make up always gives me a great feeling, especially when feeling down (or hungover); make up can hide it all. I’m not a fan of a lot of make up, on a daily basis I only use mascara and some concealer and sometimes eyeliner.

That doesn’t keep me from stacking up on everything there is to offer in the make up department though. Rouge, powder, lipstick, lipgloss; I have it all and hardly use it.
It’s just the way the make up department makes me feel and the nice people that work there. And there’s also that enchanting scent of make up and perfumes.

Anyway, these are my make up favorites;

Powder Chanel Les beiges | Eyeshadow box Yves Saint Laurent “The Bow Collection” | Mascara Dior Show | Concealer L’oreal Lumi magique | MAC eyeliner brush | Chanel eyeshadow in color “Illusoire” | MAC Liquid eyeliner “Blacktrack” | Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb | Estée Lauder Daywear sheer tint release | Victoria’s Secret make up pouch

Pretty little make up


Most of the times when I walk into a department store I leave with a bag filled with make up and an empty wallet. Whether it’s nailpolish, lipstick or eyeshadow; I have it all.. Thanks to a dear friend I found this website, which has tons of make up and prices are all between €1 (yes, that’s really a 1) and €10! I mean, how can you even resist?
