MUA - Romantic Efflorescence

Hi guys, let's just talk a moment about MUA for a second. 
I'm not the biggest fan of the brand but when it comes to their eyeshadow palettes, I'm obsessed. 
Every color is super pigmented and blends out nicely. 
I feel like this would be such a great palette for fall due to all the copper and plum shades. What I also  liked where the different shades and the different types of formulation. Some shades are mat, others have a shimmer to them. There are a lot of dark shades, some more bright shades and a lot of neutral. 
The packaging is pretty simple but for €5.99 I think it's perfect. The lid is see trough so  you know which palette you are looking for. 
I think this palette is usable for everyone as you can create so many different eye looks with it. 
I know I love it! What do you guys think? Yay or Nay!

When in Venice

Hi guys,
a few weeks ago I went to Venice with my boyfriend to celebrate our six year anniversary and to enjoy our week off from work. We decided to go for 4 days so we would have enough time to explore the city. And what a city it was.
The city, although very busy, is such a romantic place to go,  with the beautiful canals and gondolas. The people there are so friendly and happy, you just get happy yourself.
On the first day we decided to have the first Italian pizza and man it was good. My boyfriend also enjoyed a nice glass of red whine, I went for a basic Cola. I must say that it isn't as expensive as everybody was telling us. Only the soda's were expensive where you had to pay just as much for a glass of Cola as you paid for a glass of red whine.
What I loved where the beautiful masks they were selling. There was also a place where you had al the nice high end stores like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Guess, Prada, Rolex, Gucci,...
Even though I wasn't planning on buying something expensive, I was nice to look around. I did however went shopping at Sephora, Hard rock café and Tezenis (which is an Italian lingerie and sports wear store).
For people who want a relaxing vacation, Venice isn't the place to be. It is such a beautiful City but it is pretty exhausting. Have you ever been to Venice?

Where have you been?

It's not easy to be blogging when you have to go to work and I admire those who find the time.
I have been struggling to have a nice balance between work, friends and family and relaxing and also doing some volunteering at my local animal shelter.
I've always loved animals, especially dogs (obviously as i started my dog grooming class September 19th. ), so when I saw the advert that they needed new volunteers I jumped at the opportunity and signed in. When I got the call I was so happy! Every Thursday, when it was day off, I got up at 7.15 to start at 8AM. It's pretty hard work, cleaning their cages (not exactly the right word), making sure they have clean sheets to lay on, checking if everyone has enough water and toys to play with. Food is served by the staff because some dogs are on a different diet and some need their medication.
What I loved most about doing this volunteering was the joy you get when the dogs have their outdoor time and they get some love and attention from  the staff.
Now that my course has started Monday the 19th, I had to quite my volunteering. I already miss them, staff and dogs, but now its time to study for my dream job.
The reason why I haven't been blogging  is obvious because of my volunteering but also because I was planning on doing something completely different.
I still love my fashion and beauty blogs, and I'm going to keep doing them, but I wanted my blog to be more personal and more about everything I love. So what's going to be new ?
I'm thinking of doing a weekly book review as I'm obsessed with reading. I will talk  about mostly young adult books, but here and there I will talk about other books, like the ones from Anna Nooshin or Lauren Conrad, etc...
Next up, I'm thinking about blogging about my journey about becoming a dog groomer. How class is going, how I'm enjoying it, what I find difficult,...
And of course a weekly review, maybe two a week, about beauty or fashion.
So it's more of a mix between fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
Let me know what you guys think in the comments below!
Also, what do you think about the new blogname ?
And to close this post I thought it would be cool to put pictures online from the dogs at the animal shelter in Genk.

Kiko radiant powder

Let's all take a moment to look at the packaging from this powder. It looks and feels so expensive, but it was only €14,90. This powder is new in the collection and they also come with a range of blushes and also bronzer. For a basic makeup powder they have two options: the radiant fusion powder (this one) and the matte fusion pressed powder. Since I still have a bit of my MAC powder left, I decided to go for the radiant fusion one in stead. 
This one is suppose to give you a nice glow without making you look like a discobal. Just a nice healthy glow. The first day I tried this powder out, I got a complement from someone, telling me I looked so glowing. Kiko did it's job good. 
Now when I use a powder I don't just use it for a nice glow, but also to keep my foundation longer. It's not as good as the MAC one at that point, but it works fine for me. My makeup doesn't crease, doesn't look cakey but looks really healthy. At first I preferred the MAC one, but that was because of the matte finish. Now I think it's a tie. They both work great and have a different finish so I like to switch them up a bit. Have you tried out any of these powders or blushes?
