* Mom's back from the USA - Haul *

Hello everyone,

One week ago, my mom came back from Frorida. Her parents have been living there for a while so every couple months, we try to go and visit them.

When someone from the family is going to the State, I always try to give them a list with items we can only find there or where the price is much cheaper.

Here's what I got:

A new Alex and Ani bangle : The Compass, witch is : " An instrumental aid, a compass provides guidance and navigation through life's unexpected twists and turns. Each cardinal direction has a significant meaning. North represents home and infinite possibility. South embodies passion and the present. East signifies new beginnings and the future. West symbolizes emotion and new beginnings. Wear the Compass Charm to guide you in the right direction. "
" Gone Girl " from Gillian Flynn : During Tanya Burr's September vlog she mentioned that she was reading it. I went online and saw really good reviews (there is also a movie who just came out with Ben Affleck). It's a thriller with a lot of mystery, suspense, and crime. The kind of book that I love!
My last item on my list was a BathandBodyWorks candle. I haven't lighted it but I can't way, but first I want to burn the ones I had before. Mine while, all I can tell you, is that the smell is divine!
My mom was my Florida these last 2 weeks, but my dad was in Chicago during September. Like I did with my mom, I couldn't resist to ask him to get some stuff
My order was shampoo, conditioner and mascara.
As you know, I have quite dry hair and for these last months, I've been using the Aussie range for color hair. My hair is still color but I want to moister my hair as much as I can. I ask him to get me that Aussie moist shampoo and conditioner. You can see I have shampoo and container for 6 months. 
I don't know about guys but there is a price difference between The State and Europe on some items, mascara is one of them. Here is the Maybelline - The Falsies in black and Maybelline - The Rocket in brown. They are inexpensive and good quality.

Have you ever tried (or read) any of these items? What do you think about it? What should I ask on my next list?


Bisous,
J-C Lynn

* Hair routine *

From last September to December 2013, I had the chance to study in Denmark. 
It meant, I had the pleasure to be able to try a product, that I can't find here in Belgium.
As I was leaving there for 4 months, I didn't bring a huge amount of everything, especially when it came to beauty and hair products as I could buy them there. 

One day, my shampoo went out and I had to buy some.
I spotted the brand Aussie, which I've heard good review, and jumped on it and bought it.
My hair was colored (and still is), so I choose to use the " Colour Mate Shampoo ". Of course, I couldn't stop just with the shampoo, so I got the " Colour Mate Conditioner " and the " 3 Minute Miracle Colour Deep Treatment ".

What they say about these products:
- Shampoo: " Our unique formula, with Australian Wild Peach extract, smoothly cleanses to help protect colored hair from chemical damage and to  keep your colored hair looking vibrant."
Conditioner: "Our unique formula, with Australian Wild Peach, extract, smoothly conditions the hair, leaving it with radiant shine and vitality."
- Deep Treatment: " Our unique formula, with Australian Wild Peach extract, is an amazing concoction that takes only 3 minutes to help revitalize dry dull hair for vibrant, luscious yummies."
What I think:
First of all, the whole line smell so good and peachy! I love it. Iseriously invite you to go in your shower and wash your hair! Usually, I try to wash and condition my hair every 3 days and once a week I would use the deep treatment. For my hair, they do their job. I have nothing bad to say about them. I love them. They make my hair smell wonderful, make them smooth and keep my colour vibrant

I'm not using them now because I bought a new shampoo a couple weeks ago, and I don't like to mix my hair routine. So once I finish the shampoo I'm using, I'm going back to them because I don't love what I'm using but I bought it so I need to finish it.


Have you ever tried product from Aussie? Do you love it as much as I do?


Take care,
J-C Lynn

If you are interesting in buying Aussie's products and you can't find them where you live. I recommend you to check this site. I've used it more then once and never had problem: www.feelunique.com

* Ginger Hair *

A couple years ago, I was obsessed with having blond hair and I went for it as you can see on the picture! 

I was blond for about a year and a half. Then I went back to my routs, being a brunette (yeah I know my profile picture). 
I'm not going to lie, I'm getting bored with my hair, so I want to change it to GINGER !
I'm all ready making the transition but it's not as ginger as I would like (but baby steps).
You can see my hair is a little bit damaged from all the blond.
When it comes to changing your hair, I think it's important to take at first a baby step then the more step you take the more crazy you can go and to trust your hair dresser. I've been going to mine since a was 10 years old, and never been disappointed except went I went somewhere else! 
Hair defines your face so be careful.

What do you think? Will it suit me ?
And do you have any recommendation for damaged hair?

* Flourless Chocolate Cake *

Usually Sundays are the day off the week where I have more time for me. This sunday was no different so I decided to do a chocolate cake.

The recipe was made for 8 - 10 people so I cut it in 2 as it's just my mommy and me, Silly me, I put in a bigger pan then what I needed so it was as big as a 8 - 10 but way finer but still delicious!

Here are the ingredients you will need: 

- 130 gr of granulated sugar
- 60 gr of unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
- 150 gr of chocolate chips
- 60 ml of boiling water
- 4 eggs, separated
- 1teaspoon of vanilla extract

Process:
 
1) Preheat the oven at 190 °C, grease your pan with some nonstick spray or butter.
2) In a bowl stir the egg yolks, chocolate chips, sugar, vanilla extract, butter and BOILING water (if it's not hot enough, the ingredients wouldn't be able to combine) until you get a nice smooth mixture.
3) In an other bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
4) Pour the chocolate mixture over the egg whites and fold the 2 together.
5) Pour your batter in the pan.
6) Bake it for about 40 minutes or until the cake looks puffed and cracked.
7) Allow it to cool completely before eating it

Enjoy et bon appétit :)

* Relaxing bath *

I don’t know about guys, but here in Belgium, the weather has been poorly for a couple days. It really looks like it’s autumn and I think the sun has decided to go on holiday. Hopefully for us, not too long please.
Meanwhile, when the weather is bad, I like to cheer me up with a bath at night after a long and crappy day.

Here are the products I use, The Palmolive Naturals: Bain Moussant to put in my bath. This bubble bath is rich in vitamins and proteins, it leaves the skin smooth and soft. It moisturizes the skin perfectly.
I also find these little oil bath balls so I thought I would use them. 

I think bath time is the best time to do a face mask as you are just laying in the water. I've been testing the Freeman Facial Clay Mask: Chocolate & Strawberry. I don't want to say that much about it because I would like to do a special post on it, but all I'm going to say is that I'm quite impressed with it.
I also like to treat myself with a nice hot drink. This time, I went for a hot chocolate with hazelnuts syrup from Starbucks which is delicious.
Once all is prepared, I light up candles and go in the bath. 

Hope you enjoyed it!
