Lately I’ve been given the opportunity to try the new range a shampoo from L’Oreal, Fibralogy. The focus of these product is to give volume to your hair, by following a few steps: shampoo – thickness booster (kind of looks like a serum to apply after the shampoo, right before the conditioner but without rinsing it) – conditioner or mask – serum (I usually apply it right before drying my hair).
From left to right: serum – shampoo – conditioner – mask – booster
It’s exactly the kind of products I was looking for. I have a big mass of hair, but they’re so thin that as soon as I blow dry them, they seem flat, it just looks like I have just 3 hair on my head… I mean look
They look good but not very full.
So I made a first try last week with the Fibralogy products, here’s the result
I don’t know if we can see it properly but my hair were super voluminous. And it stayed that way for a while, seeing how they were the following night (excuse the picture kind of out of the blue, but definitely shows how my hair were still looking awesome more than 24h hour later)
I tried the products for the second time, and seems like from weeks to weeks, they get bigger!
Since my very first try, I’ve used the Fibralogy products at least once a week. To accentuate the volume effect I blow dry my hair using curlers. Once everything is dry, I leave the curlers on my head for a good 15 to 20 minutes. It definitely helps for the volume and the shine.
My final thought?
I was honestly impressed. I don’t really go for super commercial/chains products like the shampoos you find in supermarkets. I buy most of my products in the US. But this one, when using all of the steps, is pretty magical! Don’t get me wrong, the final results would never be as good if I didn’t blow dry my hair right after.
Now on another point, I’d like to precise that I already owned the shampoo I had received a while ago to try out, and I was already really pleased with the result. But today, I couldn’t imagine not using every product for every step.
I also know that I won’t be using the Fibralogy products every week because I like using different kinds of shampoos and products for my hair (I have a pretty insane shampoo/conditioner/hair product collection…), but these ones will definitely be in favourite section!
Now a few pictures from the past month after using the Fibralogy products
What’s up? I do hope you’re doing a lot better than me! I have so many things I need to deal with right now, and to be honest, it’s not the funniest things. It definitely shows in the lack of posting. For various reasons, sometimes I don’t have time to write the post, sometimes I have no one to take my picture, and sometimes I just look like shit haha!
Anyway, I did a little improvised shooting on saturday night, at the Bday party of my ex roommate. He probably has the coolest door opener I’ve every seen, so vintage! It then took the opportunity to take a few pictures with it.

This year again I had the opportunity to have a delicious meal in the air.
It was my second experience at Dinner in the Sky (click here for my first time), thanks again to Fromages de Suisse. Our delicious meal was cooked by Pascal Devalkeneer, and let me tell you, that guy is a genius!
From now on, I’ll just let the pictures speak. Some of them are from me, the others from triptyque.be
Let’s have a look at our menu:

Many thanks again to Sparkies and to Fromages de Suisse for inviting me!
Today I want to share with you one of my last discoveries in brussels: King Kong.
It’s the new peruvian fast food located on chaussée de Charleroi (super close to my place AND my work YAY!)
I’m a big fan of south american food, and it’s usually super hard to find in Brussels, thank god they opened.
The place is super nicely decorated (super modern, with some exotic touches, I love it!) the staff is really adorable, and the food is clearly amazing! (I actually went there for lunch today!)
I always get the Chicharron sandwich (which is a burger with crispy pork breast) and oven potatoes with a delicious sauce.
The King Kong effect on my and my friends during our first visit…

Day two of WECANDANCE with a shitload of pictures.
Lots of them have been taken with my disposable camera (I LOOOOVE the effect it gives to the photos), others by Alex Iberico for Bloody Louis, Matthias Maselis (aka MM Whiskey hangover), or by friends.
I was wearing a flower crown nicely gifted by Cabinet de Transformation (let me tell you that I don’t get tired of it and want to wear it every single day!). For the rest of the outfit, it was especially to prevent me from the cold wind. Besides my little chain belt I found at a costume shop in Brussels and my funky thaï inspired bag I brought back from…IBIZA!
Showing off my LACLAIRE tattoo
It may sound wierd, but I love this picture way too much!
And right there it ends, but we have our memories, we have our pictures, to remind us this fabulous weekend.
WECANTWAIT for 2015!
I’ve been wanting to share these photos with you since a few days… But I was still waiting for other pictures to come out. Which they still haven’t so I’m going to do it anyhow.
I went to WCD on saturday, but arrived late (sadly), enjoy the last two hours that where magnificent! Then went to the afterparty, got some sleep, and was back at the festival on sunday early afternoon.
WHAT A WEEKEND, let me tell ya!
I consider it as a very « girly » festival. Everything looks beautiful, from the decoration, to the food, the drinks or the people… Yes the people! There was a theme, « egyptian », and so many of the attendees dress according to it, it looked amazing! (Even without that, I don’t know how that’s actually possible to have that many good looking people in one festival… anyway)
It was in the sand! No worries to get dirty! (happy me)
The food looked insane, sadly I didn’t think of getting any before sunday night, and sadly at the point they had closed everything up because of some security issues DUH! It was far from being the greasy things you usually find in festival. It looked refined, healthy and super yummy. Bummer!
Last but definitely not least, they had a Gin Bar! How fun right? Served in big classes and not in plastic cups. Super superficial right, but we love it!
Now, let’s just let the pictures speak for themselves
I really wanted to dress like an indian. Even though the theme was Egyptian… whatever!
Hey! Looks like there’s another indian around here
Of course it’s my friend! We do have to agree, his headpiece is a lot better than mine… Thanks to Cabinet de Transformation!
Just in case you’re wondering, I did get attacked by a lot of people who were jealous of my indian hat…
Meet me tomorrow on the blog for day 2!
