A lightening fast visit to Paris (and Carolien means no longer than 6 hours then). What does she get up to when she’s there? She takes you with her…

What’s on top of my list during a lightening fast visit (read: a half a day…a real lightening fast visit) to Paris? Exactly, a breakfast at La Durée! At 9:30 I was already enjoying French toast with raisin cream, mmmmm! And yes a gigantic box of macaroons came home with me in the car: only they did not make it back to Holland…

The new winter colour for this season is sea green que j’adore. My new Striplac nail polish matches my Avelon skirt perfectly: ton sur ton, gotta love it.

The new lipstick collection from Pupa is made up of 40 colours. And I’m so good at choosing…NOT. The Apricot colour was the biggest surprise for me. I’m not really into orange, but this lovely warm tint matched perfectly with my new winter clothes.

Every month I treat myself to ‘new eyebrows’ at Le Boudoir.  They say eyebrows give the most character to your face. The 10 minutes with dye on your face always seems to promise disaster, but the end result is gorgeous.


Meet the girls from Homies! Wonderful to play nerdy for a change. The glasses are actually quite cute: maybe I should have my eyes tested at the optician ;)
