My current beauty favorites. All MAKEUP!

I’m typing this while there’s an eclipse going on. If I didn’t have small kids I would go out with special glasses and take pictures, but taking them out for this purpose is not an option right now. Haha! 馃榾 Anyway, here’s a quick blog post to show you guys which products I’ve been enjoying lately, my beauty favorites. I’ve been kinda slacking when it comes to writing full reviews (there’s never enough time in a day), so I hope you’ll enjoy these mini-reviews. If you do want more info, swatches or other pics…let me know. This is part 1,...

Review: Lanc么me Monsieur Big Mascara (NEW at Sephora)

Have you heard of the new Monsieur Big Mascara by Lancome? It’s new at Sephora. I was lucky enough to get my hands on it through Influenster and I’ve been trying it every day since I got back from the US. I like it a lot. 馃檪 It’s made to give your lashes up to 12x the volume and last for up to 24 hours thanks to its brush and formula. Below are more details and my own before and after pictures. How it’s described “Ideal for all-day wear, this mascara doesn鈥檛 require touch-ups and doesn鈥檛 flake or smudge. This...

New hair! All about those curls…

I changed my hair again! You might remember my visit to a hair salon last year, I wrote about it here. Last week I (finally!) got to go again and this time I went for a completely different look! Here’s a ‘before’ pic…. before My hair has grown a lot since then! Because I will be spending quite some time at the pool this summer, I now decided to go for a haircut that doesn’t require the use of a hair straightener. Wearing my hair the way it grows out of my head, instead of using a flat iron after...

Review: The best inexpensive face cream, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

The other day I mentioned my oily skin. As long as I can remember I have oily skin. My nose gets oily, my chin, cheeks…pretty much my entire face, except for the outer perimeter. That’s where it’s a little dry. I guess you could say I have combination/oily skin. Even with my skin type, hydration is always important. My skin produces oil throughout the day, however, I always make sure to moisturize in the morning. Olay contacted me a little while ago and told me about an independent test by the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) that showed that their Regenerist...

New favorite! Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser by GLAMGLOW

I have a new favorite, guys! A couple of weeks ago I ran out of facial cleanser and I happen to have a coupon for Parfumerie Douglas. So I went to the nearest Douglas store and asked the sales lady what she recommended for my oily skin. She couldn’t stop talking about the Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser by GLAMGLOW. She asked me if I was familiar with the brand, which I was (I love their facial masks) and had me try a sample in the store. I ended up purchasing the full-size bottle and I gotta say…I’m happy that I...

My brother before-and-after beard. Thoughts?

Beards have been in fashion for the last few years. Almost every single one of my cousins and male friends has a beard, especially the ones here in the Netherlands. 馃檪 Opinions on facial hair are very divided, to say the least. People who don鈥檛 like beards usually say they’re too scruffy and unhygienic, but there are also people who love them because they say they’re masculine and exude confidence. Growing out a beard can dramatically change a guy’s look. Shaving it off can even be more dramatic! Some say that beards make men’s faces look stronger and more masculine,...

OOTD: the Shoeby jumpshort I wore on my mom’s birthday

This past weekend we celebrated my mom’s birthday. I was so so happy that I was able to be with her for her birthday. 馃檪 One of her birthday surprises was a two-hour boat cruise across the Rotterdam waters, while enjoying an all you can eat pancake buffet. It was heaven! I posted the picture below on Instagram and received a lot of compliments about both our outfits. Thank you! Her birthday celebrations continue!

Why people with dark skin still need to wear sunscreen

It finally feels like summer here in The Netherlands and, of course, I’m taking full advantage of it. 馃檪 The other day I was last minute shopping for sunscreen. I went into a (never been before) drugstore and because I didn’t want to waste time looking around, I asked a sales associate where in the store I could find it. Before answering my question, she looked me up and down and I could almost hear her think: ‘why would she need sunscreen?’. That brings me to this post. Just because I have dark skin, that doesn’t mean I don’t need...
