More birthday fun! [pics]

Last Saturday my girlfriend S. took me out to celebrate my 30th birthday! She knew I didn’t want it to be a big thing, so she suggested to go out just ‘us ladies’. Very good idea, cause I had an AMAZING time!! We went to Saint Tropez, a ‘beach’ restaurant in the city that turns into a club after hours. I had a blast!! I guess it’s not so bad to turn 30. 😉 Here are some pics of the evening! click to enlargeRead more...

Did some beauty shopping

I did a little beauty shopping the other day. Nothing big though… L.A. Colors 5 color metallic eyeshadow (Enchanted) Green is one of my favorite colors, this palet looked interesting! Also, I heard that L.A. Colors are pretty pigmented! IC Hail Poliser My neighbor used this on my bridal hairdo…it gave me a really pretty shine! Queen Helene Mint Julep masque It supposed to dry out your pimples. I read some great reviews on it…we’ll see! 🙂Read more...

My name is Kizzy and I’m mica sensitive….

If you’re a long-time reader you know that I struggle with my skin. It’s so frikking sensitive! I have super oily skin, I get pimples (ok, one or two at a time, but still…) and I suffer from mild rosacea (redness in my face). Also, my skin tends to burn/sting/itch a lot. But now I have found out the cause of the irritation (or at least what is making it worse): I’m allergic to mica. 🙁 See, I’ve always been allergy prone (I’m allergic to shell fish, nuts, dogs/cats and pollen). After going to the doctor and doing some little...

Wedding dinner pics!

For our wedding dinner we went to the Euromast. Click here for a picture if you’ve never heard of it. It’s basically a large tower with a ‘crow’s nest’ observation platform and of course a restaurant. There’s also a smaller part, called the Euroscope, that moves up and down from the crow’s nest to the top and back. It offers an amazing view over the city! It wasn’t our first time there. Back in 2007 we visited the tower as well… See? That’s us on the Euroscope…twice! Click here to go to Flickr to see more! (add me as a...

Early birthday gift for ME

I bought myself an early birthday gift! (My birthday is on August 9). ‘Be Delicious‘ by Donna Karan New York I like how the bottle matches my site…haha! This is how Donna Karan describes this fragrance: A modern feast for the senses. Served in a sleek metal and glass apple bottle, a juicy fragrance that combines the scent of apple with exotic flowers and sensual woods. This is how I describe it: ‘delicious!’ 😀 What’s your favorite scent at the moment? I want to explore more fragrances. I always seem to like a scent and stick with it for years....

Behind the wedding scenes: my bridal hairdo (2)

BEFORE (I look like a giant bug) AFTER (front and back) Remember when I had different polls on this site where I asked for your help with picking my bridal hairstyle? If you missed them, you can find them here and here. Well, as you can see I went with something completely different! I didn’t want an ‘updo’ , cause I wanted to keep the length. I also wanted flowers in my hair, cause you know… I’m a girly girl 🙂 And this is what my hairdresser came up with…and I LOVED it! A big thanks to my hairdresser Damaris (who’s...

Gifts from D. (FreshDimez)

Dutch beauty blogs are rare. Dutch beauty blogs that are actually interesting are even more rare. And don’t get me started about Dutch beauty blogs that focus on women of color! A Dutch blog that I highly recommend however is FreshDimez. It’s one of my daily reads. The owner of the site, D., writes about everything beauty related: home made beauty tips, black hair styles, health, food etc. The articles are easy to read and very helpful. D is very down-to-earth and it reflects in her writing. On July 19th the site celebrated its 1st birthday. To celebrate this D....

Lush ‘haul’

I went to Amsterdam today and I managed to not buy a thing at the M.A.C. store. Whaaat?? Nothing?? Yeah, that’s right, I didn’t get a thing! I did buy something at Lush though 😀 We don’t have Lush here in Rotterdam, so whenever I walk by one of their stores, I have to go in. I figured it was ok today, cause I didn’t spend any $ at the M.A.C. store. Good excuse, huh? This is what I got at Lush (just 1 item!). Herbalism: Detoxifying, purifying and exfoliating herbal cleansing roll wash for oilier and problem skin. Herbalism...

Behind the wedding scenes: my bridal make up (1)

I did my make up myself on our wedding day. The products I used are listed below. I didn’t use much in my opinion. To be honest, my main focus was to not get oily/shiny skin. I think it turned out ok. 1. Eyes M.A.C.’s ‘Liquidlast eyeliner’ in true black L’oreal’s ‘Telescopic mascara’ in carbon black (lashes) M.A.C.’s ‘Eye kohl’ in smolder (waterline)Read more...
