The Body Shop Event + Guest Post on Makeupwithdrawal!

Hey everyone,

last week I was invited to The Body Shop event. There were several things going on, including signing the cruelty-free petition, repackaging of their body butter, and meeting their internationally-renowned makeup artist Chase Aston in person! The slogan is look good, feel good, do good.

Here are some pictures so you get a sneak peek, and the rest are on Facebook so feel free to go over there and enjoy the whole deal!

Community fair trade ingredients. The honey smelled sooo good!

New packaging of the body butter:

All the yummy scents:

Annnd I wrote a guest post for Mimi at Makeupwithdrawal so that she could chill a bit with her fiance somewhere nice and warm 🙂

The post is about my 5 must-have French pharmaceutical skincare products. If you click here you’ll see it!

I also feel obliged to show you a picture of Mimi’s dog Kuma. This dog has to be one of the MOST adorable ones I’ve ever seen. He’s so big, and he seems SO nice! This is him taking a bath :p

He looks so miserable yet meek I just want to kiss him 100 times!

Hope you enjoy the pictures and the guest post! I’ve been running around a lot these days, and that’s why I’d be a bit slow in replying to your comments, but I WILL catch up with them tomorrow so comment away!

Today’s Post is (Again) on Makeupandbeautyblog!

Interesting things always happen when you’re not sitting in front of the computer, like when you lie in on Sunday. By the time I finally decided to get up, make coffee, and check my Bloglovin’, I saw my own face looking back at me on Makeupandbeautyblog!

Whee my second guest post is on!!!

This post is about eye makeup tips for monolidders. If you have monolids but can’t figure out how to make the most of your eyes, this post is dedicated to you. If you don’t have monolids, check it out anyways because you might have friends who do, and you might be able to help them!

So head over here and let me know what you think about it! You can leave a comment here or there. If you have any questions I’ll try to answer them!

Have a great Sunday and I have fun new posts ready for ya soon!

Today’s Post is on Makeupandbeautyblog!

Like fitting yourself into a much smaller box, or when Karen from Makeupandbeautyblog asks you to write guest posts!

About a month ago, I received an e-mail from Karen. Not having read the title properly, I assumed it was my friend Karin (ignoring for a second that her name is spelled with an i, not e). The e-mail began normal. She’s planning a short vacation towards the end of April. Sounds good to me. She’s going to Kauai. That’s not an obvious holiday destination for someone who lives in Belgium, but sure why not? And she’s looking for a few talented bloggers to help her take a little time off. Wait WHAT? Who IS the sender of the e-mail? I finally went back to the title and freaked out a little. It’s KAREN, Karen from Makeupandbeautyblog!

Karen kindly gave me some blogging advice (which I have been trying to follow, including introducing more light to where I take photos and more photos per post), and told he she was looking very specifically for how-tos and tutorials, which I have almost never done on Mostly Sunny. I thought and thought and thought… what do I know a tiny little bit about? What part of my experience can I share with others in a more organized way? After many e-mail exchanges, we narrowed the ideas down, and I proudly present you my first guest post on MBB!

Writing this post took almost a whole day. I began by writing the “tips” down, digging things I wanted to show out, and taking first product photos and then demonstration photos. After that, it was the usual process of sifting through photos, labeling them properly, and adjusting mostly brightness. Please bear in mind that I didn’t have my new camera at that point, so it was just my small point-and-shoot. Nevertheless, I am proud of how it turned out!

With no further ado, here is the link to the guest post if you don’t already follow Karen (though I wouldn’t know in what universe is that even possible). Feel free to leave comments here or there to let me know how you like it. I hope you’ll enjoy it!

In life, we must learn from Tango the wise kitty:
