My new hair products: CLEAR SCALP & HAIRâ„¢ Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner

With my freshly cut hair comes a new hair routine! Ever since I cut my hair, I’ve been focusing on taking care of my scalp and hair with good products to make sure my hair stays healthy and full. Did you know that studies have shown that seasonality (so the changing of the seasons) can cause shedding, especially in Fall? Yup! Now that we’re almost transition to Fall, I think it’s good to put an emphasis on scalp care, so my scalp and hair are ready! The skin on your scalp is the same skin that we have on our...

Makeup Monday: NEUTROGENA Healthy Skin Blends Bronzer!

Yes, I know it’s not Monday anymore… I was supposed to post this yesterday, but I just didn’t get around to it. I don’t feel like coming up with a new title right now, so let’s just pretend it’s Monday, ok? 😀 Today’s post is about a drugstore product. I know, I haven’t reviewed a drugstore product in so long! This is because I’ve been mostly buying makeup at places like Sephora and MAC. The rare purchases I have made from the drugstore are liquid lipsticks. However, this particular product was sent to me and I’m so happy that I...

Review: Zakia’s Morocco 100% pure, organic Argan Oil

Thanks everybody for your kind words about my new hairdo! I really appreciate it. 🙂 For those who haven’t seen any new pictures yet: I cut my hair a couple of days before my birthday on August 9. I wasn’t sure about the whole thing and when I did decide to do it, I was nervous about it. The reason for this is because I hadn’t cut my hair since high school. Yes, I know…crazy! Of course I’ve had trims every year, but this was my first real haircut since I was about 12. My hair was very long, it...

Beauty is pain? Painful beauty procedures I regret doing

Beauty is pain, they say. What type of torture have you gone through for the sake of looking pretty? Back in the day, people would wear painful corsets and powder their face with lead. They used makeup made of malachite (a green ore of copper), galena (lead sulfide) and kohl, a paste made of soot, fatty matter and metal (usually lead, antimony, manganese or copper). The lead exposure would eventually lead to irritability, insomnia and mental decrease. Oops! The examples above might seem extreme, but nowadays things aren’t that different. A lot of these things have been replaced by beauty...

Preparing your skin for autumn

As summer comes to an end, it is time to think about how to get your skin ready for autumn. Essential oils can help you to do just that. Essential oils are extracts of a variety of plants including flowers, herbs and even some trees, many of which are grown in the wild to create herbal remedies. These oils are powerful substances and you only need to use a tiny amount to see the benefits that they can bring. How can I use essential oils? Essential oils can be used in a number of different ways, and for your skin,...

Me Time! Enjoying my Argan Moroccan Black Soap and Ghassoul Clay Mask

I’m still over here recovering from my flight back from Europe and the time difference between there and here… ugh! Even though I’ve flown back and forth many times in the last 10 years, it never becomes a habit. Jetlags are real, people! Anyway, I did want to quickly write this post and share two of my newest skin care products. Each of these products contain no mineral oil, no silicon and no parabens. If you know me, you know that I much rather prefer natural skincare than skincare with chemicals, especially on Sundays. Every Sunday I have, what I...

I’m back in the US with new hair: short and spicy!

I took a little break from the blog, but I’m back! There has been some changes. I’m a year older now (my birthday was on August 9), I’m back in the US after being in The Netherlands for a couple of months and there’s something else that’s new… I cut my hair! I was tired of having long hair and I wanted something new. No more Pocahontas! Here’s my before picture, in case you’ve forgotten how I looked like. 😀 Hair before Top: Summum // Jeroen Beekman I’ve had long hair for years (since high school), so this is a...

Play! By Sephora launching soon, Sephora’s very own subscription beauty box

Hi everyone! It’s the weekend! I’m starting off my Saturday by posting about my absolute favorite store: Sephora. We all know that Sephora in the US is already the place to go for samples.

They also have testers of every single products in the store, which makes it a great way to try new products or shades without the commitment. And now, you can get deluxe samples delivered to you for $10 every month… I love it! Details below. 🙂 Women’s Wear Daily reports that the...

Review: Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder by it Cosmetics (NEW)

Back in 2013 I was obsessed with the Bye Bye Pores HD Finishing Powder by it Cosmetics. Just now, I searched my blog to see what I had written about it, only to find out that yes… my obsession was real. 😀 I mention this powder in so many posts! Here are just a few examples: It makes your pores look smaller and gives your skin a ‘softer’ look, if that makes sense. [February 2013 Favorites] If you have enlarged pores, try this loose powder on top of your foundation. It makes your pores look smaller and gives your skin...

Tips for Bad Hair Days (courtesy of myself and the Aflac Duck)

This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Aflac. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine. Bad hair days, who doesn’t have them? I’m the kind of person who loves doing my makeup, but when it comes to my hair…I rather skip it! Makeup is much more fun to do than hair, if you ask me. To make things worse: sometimes my hair just does not want to cooperate. Because I still want to look presentable, even on those bad hair days, I have come up with 3...
