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

Beard Grooming

In this article, we’re talking beards, not just your average beard, but the Championship League of Beards. Let’s take a gander and look at the Full Beard category in all its glory and see what it takes to grow a beard of champions. 😀 Full Beard Natural For those who love to go au naturel, then this is the beard for you as the rule of thumb, or beard is the more natural the better. The beard can’t be highlighted in any way and must not be curled under the chin at the bottom. No styling aids are allowed so no trimmers,

On my nails: KIKO Smart Nail Lacquer in ‘Dark Chocolate’

It’s been forever since I showed you my nails! Honestly, there wasn’t much to show. I’ve been keeping them short (because of the baby) and I also haven’t been wearing any exciting colors. Just the same nudes over and over again. And sometimes just a clear polish. The other day I picked up a few things at KIKO Cosmetics (there’s an actual store near my parents’ house), including two nail polishes. I posted a picture of my purchases on my Instagram. I don’t need any more polishes, but I couldn’t resist since they were on sale (just 2 Euro). One

IT’s Your Bye Bye Breakthroughs!

As you know I love IT Cosmetics. Over the years this brand has become a staple in my makeup collection. The best way to buy IT Cosmetics is during a sale on their website, or at Ulta (you’ll earn points) or on QVC. And guess what? The brand is QVC’s Today’s Special Value today. 😀 Today, it started at midnight ET, you’ll be able to purchase a 5-piece set for an awesome price. As I’m writing this, I don’t exactly know yet what the price will be, but IT Cosmetics has been on QVC before and it’s always of GREAT

Review: Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Coverage Foundation Concentrate

When I posted my favorite beauty products overseas (I’m currently staying at my family in the Netherlands), I mentioned the foundation I’ve been using. For the past couple of months, I’ve been using the Re(marc)able Full Coverage Foundation by Marc Jacobs. A lot of you asked me how I like it and if it’s worth buying. Coincidentally, I was already planning on writing a full review on it, so here it is. 😀 Re(marc)able is a $55 foundation (yup, it’s pricey) and is available at Sephora and on Marc Jacob’s beauty website, where they’re currently having a Friends & Family

Current beauty favorites while overseas…

I’ve been overseas, in the Netherlands, for over a month now (visiting my family) and during this time I’ve been ‘using my stash’, as they say, but I’ve also been trying out new products here and there. But, honestly guys, my skin has been a mess… I’ve been nursing my baby for over 7 months now and my skin has not been liking it; I have a new breakout every day. For this reason, I’m back to using anti-acne products, like benzoyl peroxide and retinol, which have caused my skin to start peeling. Let me tell you, peeling skin in

I’m alive, guys! I’ve been missing over here, because (mom)life kinda took over… We’re currently staying at my family in The Netherlands and I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and family.

Anyway, I’m here now. You probably know this already, but I feel like it would be wrong for me to not mention it: Sephora’s Spring Bonus Sale has started! 😀 The
