Hard edges versus softness.
Clair obscur versus sfumato.

Morbid humor

Do you know that feeling that you're suddenly very into something? A movie for instance? Well, I have it with The Addams Family lately. I rewatched the movies and fell completely in love again with their morbid sense of humor. Especially mother Morticia got my attention. Despite the fact that her make up look isn't very uhm... flattering, Anjelica Huston made a marvellous character out of 'Tish' Addams. And then not the mention the chemistry between Gomez and Morticia! Ah, if only someone could treat me the way Gomez treats his Morticia! (Oh shut up Siel, you've got an awesome boyfriend al ready.)
I wondered if I could remake those crazy cheekbones of her. One thing led to another and POOF... suddenly I was making pictures trying to look like her!
Do you think I succeeded?

Anyway, it gives a good dose of inspiration for my favourite holiday: Halloween! Can't wait till the 31st of October!

For those interested, this is the order of the movies:
  • The Addams Family (1991)
  • Addams Family Values (1993)    Sequel of previous movie
  • Addams Family Reunion (1998)  Stands apart from previous movies (and less good in my opinion)
I didn't watch the original series again, but they're certainly on my series-to-watch-list!

PS. Sorry for the overload of pictures and GIF's, I just couldn't decide which ones I loved more! :)

Summer sales shoplog

At last, another blogpost!

After two months of blogging silence I suddenly felt the urge to take pictures and make new posts. It was the longest pause there ever was on the four years old existence of Two Wonder Girls. I didn't plan to stop blogging, but it just sort of happened. Anyway, I'm back in blogging business now and ready to show you a shoplog of the past weeks!

& Other Stories


Urban Outfitters

Apparently a lot whites lately!

Sally Hansen - Resurrection
MAC - Matte Sin

Catrice - Don't touch my mosserati
2X OPI shatter nail polish


Apart from the eyeshadow and MAC lipstick these are all sales. The first dress will be shown in an outfit post soon, it's absolutely stunning! Further I found some great deals at our local Action. OPI nail polishes for about 3 euros and Sally Hansen for only 1 euro, insane! I also bought a 3-pack of Christmas ear studs for only one euro at H&M. It isn't really the right season, but I fell for the cute and chic snow flakes. Aren't they adorable?

In the end I think I can declare July as a successful sales period for me. I didn't bought very much nor very little and often with great bargains! Did you go sales shopping and had any luck? Do tell me!

Beauty inspirations

Normally I don't like to use the word 'inspiration' on the blog, since it's something personal. On fashion and lifestyle websites we are constantly confronted with the word, but to be honest I'm not always inspired by it. Beauty is one of those aspect in which you really can be inspired in my opinion. In a literal way I mean, you can try to copy it for yourself or so.

Here are some beauty looks that inspire me and that are also perfect for NYE! I'm especially in love with the two top looks. You might have noticed my love for dark red coloured lipstick from previous posts. :)

Ox blood coloured lipstick, combined with heavy brows, highliter and just a tad of mascara.

Unusual eyeliner underneath the eye (right) gives a quirky look.

All hail to shimmer! Above one of my favourite beauty looks ever from the Louis Vuitton catwalk. Underneath another quirky look with an unusual eyeliner underneath the eye. I love how it gives such a refreshing touch.

Those were my current beauty inspirations. I hope you enjoyed it and wish you all happy holidays!

Merry Christmas + holiday favourites

It's Christmas today!

And because of that special reason I'm showing you a few of my holiday favorites. Some old, some new but all very enjoyable these days.

A good book to read, especially since it a classic like Jane Austen.
Pink earrings from Jutka & Riska in Antwerp. I bought them a few years ago but I've barely wore those since I died my hair... Pity!

Still happy with last years B-day present: Dior Rosy Glow Blush (colour is different IRL)
Necklace from H&M, finally customized with my lovely boyfriend. 
Christmas is all about being warmhearted isn't it?

A beautiful chic H&M necklace.
Small emergency eyeshadow palette (with the best highliter ever) from Essence.
Also very handy these days, a new concealer: Estée Lauder Double Wear

My beloved Hurraw! lipbalm, mineral oil free.
Discovery of the month: HEMA's 'Today I feel marvelous perfume'. But one does not simply buys a perfume until one is certain about it's smell, so I started with the bodylotion.

A lovely family movie roughly based on real history, yes please.

Well, then there is just one more thing to say:

I'm wishing you all a

Winter whites

Picture by MONKI magazine

Oh December, what are you doing to me?

I am totally getting in the Christmas mood! I went shopping for Christmas presents, decorated my dorm room, spent hours on blogs and webshops for inspiration, and so on. While I actually should stress out because I have a lot of assignments that should be ready in two weeks. But that's typical me again, if you've been following me for a while you will probably have noticed. I am constantly complaining about drowning in homework while I keep procrastinating, classic Siel. 

The holidays are also a nice opportunity to look around for some present inspiration! 
Here is my current Christmas wishlist:
, , , (), , , ,

I urgently need new earbuds since mine fell apart two months ago, but I have a small tingling feeling that someone is taken care of that.. 
However the word oxblood isn't very appealing, the colour definitely is. It's one of the most trendy lip colours of the moment, and I absolutely adore it. Though it's harder to find in store then I thought, I will definitely go look for it again if I have time for a good shopping spree. Tips about this lipstick colour are very welcome !
A girl can never have enough jewellery, right? At least if they're basics, in my humble opinion. I need a few more nice basic earstuds, that will look good on almost every outfit, just like those from & Other Stories!

Another thing that I would love to add to my collection this winter is the so called 'blanket scarf'. A huge scarf, preferably with tartan print, that you can use as a blanket while sitting by the campfire. Paulien from showing her pretty Zara example above.
Who would ever say no to a fashion comic book? Even if it's written in French! I see this book by the lovely as a great opportunity to revise and improve my French. Also books by the French will do the trick!

movie Blind (2007),

Finding my favourite Dutch movie underneath the Christmas tree would be even more awesome. Despite of the cliché cover picture, Blind is a very beautiful movie with the most beautiful . I always wanted to dedicate a blog post to that movie, maybe I will once. But unfortunately I've never found it in store, it's rather hard to find.

Hopefully you enjoined my Christmas wishlist! Are there any things you really want to be underneath your Christmas tree? I would love to know!

Sneak peek: Celebrating the start of summer

I'm a bit behind with blogposts, sorry about that! Yours truly hasn't been home very often lately.
These pictures are from the last weekend of June. Ruby came two days to Ghent with me for the festival Copacobana. (Click for last year's pics) We had the best time celebrating the start of summer vacation! More about that later, but here is a little sneak peek al ready. We prepared some photo shooting in my dorm room, and later I took Ruby and Katrijn to , my 1 3rd time al ready! Love that place, and I'm sure Ruby also loves it now!

Look what my sweet boyfriend made for me! My name carved in wood, so awesome! He had been working on and hiding it for a whole month. I'm still impressed!

And here is the real sneak peek of the photoshoot. Stay tuned!
