I’m back in the US! I’ve been back for almost a week actually, but the jet lag has been real.

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...

Guest blog: 5 Ways to wear a Little Black Dress

There is a saying that one is never over-dressed or undressed with a Little Black Dress. If you are looking for a versatile wardrobe, you can never go wrong with an LBD. Plus, who doesn’t love the fact that it is easy to pull off? Here are just some of the few tricks to jazz up and style your modern yet classic LBD: 1. Cover it up with a shrug. For an edgy look, go for a quite flattering style but don’t forget your cover-up. A flared tank dress that shows some skin would look best when you pair it...

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...

Guest blog: 5 Tips to getting botox injections

Wrinkles and facial creases are expected as we grow old. This happens because the skin gets damaged due to exposure to a lot of elements, including ultraviolet radiation, and over time, the collagen and elastin fibers of our skin lose their elasticity. Signs of aging, such as wrinkles and facial creases, however, can be prevented with the use of botox injections. Botox has long been used to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is a popular cosmetic treatment because it’s affordable, effective, and non-surgical. It is injected into specific muscles such as forehead lines, frown lines, and the lines...

My brother before-and-after beard. Thoughts?

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. 🙂 Opinions on facial hair are very divided, to say the least. People who don’t 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. 🙂 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

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. 🙂 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...
