About Me

Who I am

Yes, Kizzy is my real name! My mom was inspired by the tv series Roots (starring Kunta Kinte) that first aired in 1977; ‘Kizzy’ was one of the main characters. I’m 37 years old and I was born and raised in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
My parents are originally from Cabo Verde: a group of tiny islands in the Atlantic Ocean, close to the west coast of Africa. In 2010 I moved from Rotterdam, The Netherlands to the United States. I’m married; my (American) husband and I have been together for over 12 years. We have a 4-year-old son and a baby girl who was born in September of this year.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in International Communications (European Studies) from The Hague University of Applied Sciences. I also have a Masters degree in Art & History from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, specializing in Media and Culture.

Even though I currently live in the United States, a lot of my readers are from The Netherlands, my home country.

About the blog

My blog ‘Kizzy Online’ features personal posts about beauty (makeup, skincare, hair, nails), fashion, lifestyle and more. I love writing reviews on beauty products, sharing my everyday makeup looks and showing my daily outfits and accessories. I also enjoy posting about current sales and other ways to save money. Lastly, I write about my life as a wife and a mom of 2 in San Diego, California.
I started blogging over 12 years ago, I used my domain as a personal journal. In 2010 I began to focus more on beauty, fashion and lifestyle. Almost all blog posts are written by myself, but occasionally one of my friends will take over and write a guest blog. I also have sponsored posts from time to time.
I’m not a makeup artist, esthetician or a stylist, but I love it just the same! I’m always open and honest, letting you in on anything that might peek your interest. Thanks for stopping by!
