Hi There..... Do you like to wear masks? Would you rather wear a luxury fashion mask or a clinical one?
Not that I like it that much, but it seems like we will still have to wear a face mask for a while. If we have to, then at least I would rather have designer face masks. How about you? 😊
I was wondering, have you ever been to a masked ball?
I have, but it is such a long time ago. I don’t think I told you before, but I took dancing classes from the age of 18 to 22. 💃
I learned classic ballroom dances like the cha-cha, tango, jive, samba, quickstep, rumba, and lots more. Oh, you would have liked to dance with me because I had some moves in me. 😎
We would have lessons twice a week. On Saturday the dance school held dance evening for couples and on Sunday dance evening for the younger people mixed with disco, French cancan, Cowboy dance, La Bamba and so on. 💃
I loved those Sunday evenings, not just for the dancing, but there were quite a few cute guys on that dancing floor too. I may have been shy, but I got invited to dance more than once. Ah yes, that was way before my wrinkles showed. 😏
The school also organized special evenings from time to time, like a New Year’s eve ball or a masked ball. I didn’t have that much pocket money, so I had to get creative. One time, I remember I made the costume myself from scratch. 😊
I used a black T-shirt with a V-neck and cut off the bottom. I had bought myself some fairly cheap fabric and made a layered skirt out of it. I can still see the fabric in my mind. It was blue with large black dots. Then I attached the black T-shirt to the skirt and that would be my flamenco dress. 😃
After I had finished that, I also made 2 large hoop earrings and a ribbon for my hair. In the shop, I bought myself a black spray to make my hair totally black. I put on some blue eyeshadow and borrowed a red lipstick from my mom to make that last touch. I was going to make an impression, if not on the dancefloor, I would in the La Bamba kissing the guys with my red lipstick. 😁
Ok, enough about me let's talk some more about that gorgeous luxury fashion mask I was talking about. Or should I say masks? Vanity Couture sent me these 3 beautiful designer face masks for my honest review. 😍
They make this gorgeous sparkly mask from glitter knit fabric. It has 3 layers and there is a special pocket for the filter you get with the mask. What I find especially handy are the ear loops with which you can make it fit perfectly, and they are nice and soft. I paired it with a red blouse to get a warm look. 😄

Hi There..... Do you like to make your skin glow? Do you like to use highlighter makeup? Are you going to celebrate Christmas and New Year soon?
Sooo many questions. I suppose most of you are going to celebrate. 😃
Unlike most years, we are celebrating Christmas with just the two of us. Ordinarily, we would celebrate with our children, but the government voted against it. Thank you so very much for that. 😛
Maybe I should just sing a Christmas Carol to get us in the mood for celebrating. Haha, I can picture my husband’s face if I do that. He would think I am losing my mind, but you have to own one to lose one. 😂
I have always been a fan of Christmas songs though, not sure why, but I always loved singing them. When I was in the choir about 10 years ago, we used to practice them before Christmas to sing at parties or masses. 😊
That reminds me of the time we were singing in the mass of the elderly home. We had been singing happily for about half an hour when there was a loud bang. You can never guess what happened. 😏
A resident seemed to have fallen asleep, and the book on her lap fell to the ground. It gave us quite a scare and everyone was wide awake again. At least they were listening again now. Nothing is as bad as performing when nobody listens. Or maybe there is one thing worse. Not being allowed to perform because of a stupid virus. 😁
I will be glad when all this is behind us. Who knows, maybe in 10 years’ time we will look back and wish we could press pause again. Or for all I know, you may wish you could still have time to read my blog posts and all my stories.
I sometimes wonder if I will still be able to think of stories, or perhaps I might start telling the old ones again because I forgot that I already told them to you. If that happens, you just have to let me know. 😂
The end of another story and time for some more jolly matters. Or maybe I should say Jolie. What? Have you never heard of Jolie Beauty? Oh my, you have got to be kidding me. 😨
Haha, now I was kidding you because I hadn’t heard about them before, but I am so glad that I discovered this brand. They have the most amazing highlighter makeup. First, let me tell you a bit more about them. 😍
This Brand from the UK is the brainchild of a team of experienced makeup artists, and they have worked with some renowned Beauty Brands such as Mac, Clinique, Sephora,... They believe that make-up artists should have the choice to pick both unique and high performing products. 😊
Their experience has driven them to design and create fun, cute, and professional products that are affordable for any artist, aspiring artist, or make-up lover. The team tests and trials each product countless times to make sure that you get the product you love. 😍
Their brush sets are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. They say that synthetic products can lead to even better results.
They design and develop their lashes in-house without the use of mink or animal products. They use synthetic silk polymer to make you enjoy voluminous lashes guilt-free.
I really love it when a brand stands up against animal cruelty and I bet you do too. Nope, I am definitely not joking around this time. 😍

Review about the JouwBox 11 - Natural Health Products - Face Cleanser and Eye Cream for Dark Circles
Hi There..... Do you like natural health products? Would you like to know more about a Face Cleanser? Or maybe about an Eye Cream for dark circles?
Have you been clinging to your screen and waiting for my next review on the natural products from my JouwBox? I know, I am sorry to have kept you waiting so long. 😏
If you are waiting, time can pass by really slow. I have done my share of waiting in my life, but some of it is my fault. I have the unpleasant habit of always wanting to be early for an appointment. 😯
The problem was when I was young the cell phone hadn’t been invented yet. Now if I am too early, I can always do some liking on my Instagram or play a game. You can never do too much on your Instagram if you want to get likes you have to give likes. I would hate it if I kept giving someone likes and they would not return any. 😈
Unless it’s some hopeless guy looking for love. I have learned not to return those likes anymore because they always want more. I don’t get it Instagram is no dating app as far as I know, and I am not looking for love just likes and comments. 😂
I must admit I learned the hard way. Some guy made a profile named Keanu Reeves. He is one of my favorite actors, so I responded when he sent me a private message. He told me he had no friends in actual life that he could talk to, so I kinda felt sorry for him. 😢
It was really exciting thinking I was really talking to the great actor himself. At least that’s what I thought until after a few days of chatting he asked me to help him. He said he needed my help for some kind of charity. Not that I am against charity, but I thought it weird that someone like him would have to pursue people to give to a good cause. 😲
That made me suspicious, but what made it even more suspicious was when he suggested that I talk to a woman who was in charge of it all. I blocked him, but he keeps following me with new Keanu Reeves’ accounts. The only difference is that I don’t respond anymore. By the way, Keanu, if you are reading this so sorry, I blocked you. 😄

Hi There….. Do you like to take care of yourself? Do you like natural health products?
I love natural health products and I just have to take care of myself. Can you imagine the lead singer of a band not taking care of herself? Our band is on hold now. All thanks to this wonderful Coronavirus. Oh yes, I am such a huge fan of this virus. It’s the best we ever had. Duh, no, of course not. 😏
Well, no use crying over spilled milk, I presume. Besides, my eyes always swell up from crying and that’s not a pleasant sight either. 😱
I have to admit that I’m a crybaby, always have been. That reminds me of a time when I was a teen and our cat snuck outside. It was freezing outside, and because of the rain the night before, there was a thin crust of ice on everything. 😒
We lived on the second floor, and there was a balcony where T.C. (from Top Cat), would love to chill. From time to time, he ventured out and hopped on the roof below to get in the gardens from our neighbors. This time, however, the roof below was slippery and I could see him sliding down from it. The thought of him not getting back up to us made me cry. 😭
Nobody understood as far as I can recall. I remember saying he is like a member of the family for me. My mom, dad, and sisters all laughed at me, but all I could do was weep. I felt so bad for our cat. What if he couldn’t make it up again? 😨
I kept staring at the window, waiting for him to come back. After some failed attempts and a few loud meows, he succeeded to get back home. What a relief, I was so happy that I cried. Aha, I warned you I was a crybaby. 😁

Hi There..... Are you looking for some great Graphic T-shirts? Would you like breathable T-shirts, maybe?
Ah, perhaps you do, but first, there is something I have to get off my chest about this Coronavirus Pandemic. 😞
If you ask me, things are getting out of hand here in Belgium. Earlier this week they were saying on the news that the police are thinking about using drones to make sure there aren’t any group gatherings in the people’s backyards. Politicians were debating about adjusting the law of privacy on this matter. 😲
Hard to believe, right? What will they think of next? Maybe we should all wear uniforms too, just like we did in school. Well, if you went to a Catholic School as I did. 😇
I may have gone to a Catholic School, but they never made me a believer. Must have been because my mom and dad were non-believers too. We never told our teachers that though, and the principal didn’t have to know either. 😁
It was our little secret, so we didn’t tell anyone, not even our classmates, except for just a select few, maybe. Going to school there did make me tolerant, probably to all kinds of religions. I think everybody should be free to follow their faith as long as they don’t force it onto others. 😀
Ah, I know what you are thinking right now. So weird for a nonbeliever to go to a Catholic School? 😦
Where we lived, back then, the standard of education was just better than it was in the Municipal School. There were no boys there, so no destructive influence from them either. My dad wasn’t unhappy with that because he liked his girls to grow up well-behaved. 😎
Except for a few swears from time to time, and even though I heard them say that about those drones made me want to go out and kill a few of those law enforcers. I didn’t do any of those things so safe to say I am still well-behaved. 😇
This Coronavirus Pandemic is bringing out the worst in us, though. If we could only be free from this annoying virus. Free from all the restrictions and just be able to breathe in the surrounding air without fear of getting infected. Going to the park without a mask on our faces. 😷
That’s what this beautiful graphic T-shirt from Ferrisbuilt that I received, in exchange for my honest opinion, represents for me. 😍
FerrisBuilt has a lot more where this T-shirt came from. They have Holiday Sweatshirts, A Political collection, a Strong Women collection, a Kids collection, a Pandemic collection even, and so much more.
Lindsey Ferris, who is the founder of Ferrisbuilt, lives in Seattle, Washington with her identical twin daughters. She lost her 12-year-old company because of Covid in the spring of 2020 (an event production company) and had to figure out a way to pivot and make a living when the industry that she had worked in her entire 25+ career shut down. As a single parent, this was a bit scary! 😯
