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
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…
227 Chaussée de Charleroi – 1060 Saint Gilles
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!
Pictures taken by Lastnightparty, or friendly people with my disposable camera (aka the first pic)
I haven’t spoken about a red carpet on this blog since a long while. I did so because so many blogs around me started doing, I didn’t see the point of continuing. Seeing the same kind of articles everywhere usually annoys me.
But when I saw some of the picture from the lat VMA’s (that took place this past sunday), I couldn’t help it… I had to share some of them with you. And since I don’t like sharing the negative parts of things, I’m also sharing my favourites!
Jennifer Lopez in Charbel Zoe
We know Jlo love some bling, but this is a little bit too much for me… And can we talk about the very vulgar duckface? Doesn’t help, really doesn’t…
Beyonce in Nicolas Jebran Couture
Really nice! Such an impressive design. Love those lace details that almost look like a spider’s web. I would have worn different earrings though, smaller ones.
Wait. ARE YOU SERIOUS? Mouhahahahhahaha. Nothing to add
Victoria Justice in Alice + Olivia top and Lublu Kira Plastinina dress
Cute, original, fun. What else can we ask to a young actress (or singer? I actually have no idea who she is… oops!)
Ariana Grande in Moschino
Don’t really know what to say here. This is so outdated, from head to toe. The dress looks cheap (sorry Moschino), the hair is a true catastrophy (why would you ever wear a high ponytail with really big and ugly highlights, to match this outfit?) Not like another pair of shoes would have really saved the outfit, but in this case, it’s just making it worse (when you couldn’t think it was possible…)
Taylor Swift in Mary Katrantzou
I really like this. We do have to admit the print looks better from far away, but the design is so fun! So different from what we usually see on the red carpets, Taylor has some guts, but she pulls it off perfectly!
Happy Bday? Merry Xmas? Yes, this can’t be anything else than a present for me, if not, the person picking it for the VMA 2014 red carpet has definitely some mental issues.
Solange Knowles in H&M Studio Collection
Bold move to wear H&M on a red carpet. But guess what? IT WORKS! I love a girl wearing a suit on the red carpet.
Katy Perry in Atelier Versace
To be completely honest, when I first saw the picture of Katy from the VMA, I though it was a picture from the 2000′s. Like early 2000! But no. And even though I do enjoy the 90′s a lot, even in the 90′s this would have been a mistake. Because the denim is already a lot to take, but with the sparkles too, I mean, seriously? WHY? And the belt? This is waaayyy too much….
Sarah Hyland in Kaufmanfranco
I have absolutely no idea who she is, but I really like the dress. It’s a little safe, but fits her perfectly. And look at that back!
Kelly Rowland in Kaufmanfranco
How pretty! I don’t think it must be very easy to pull of a red carpet look while being pregnant. But she did, and she loks perfect!
Rita Ora in Donna Karan
I have to say I’m just super surprised by the choice of dress Rita Ora made. Don’t get me wrong, I really like it, but it’s the kind of things we’re used to see her wearing. This very glamourous, but it’s lovely on her! That dress is beautiful!
Kendal Jenner in Adam Livne
Going minimalist for a Kardashian sister, especially on a red carpet is super surprising. But it looks sooo great, and she definitely has the body to pull it off.
Miley Cyrus in Alexandre Vauthier
I love this! It represents her perfectly! It’s rock, but still chic, but not really expected on a red carpet. Because yeah, of course Miley has to stand out from the crowd!
Kim Kardashian in Balmain
This is probably the look that chocked me the most. I’m not a huge fan of Kim K, and I don’t really like her style (even though I have to admit it got a lot better since Kanye got involved…) But here, I find her really amazing! The dress is great and fits her beautifully (and let’s be honest, she doesn’t have the easiest body to work with). But even her face and her hair are perfect and pretty, and glamourous and at the same time fashionable. Good job really!
