Sephora coming to NL

As a big Sephora fan, the news of these stores coming to the Netherlands makes me extremely happy! My wallet doesn’t agree with how I’m feeling, but I’m doing my best to ignore this fact… So the good news is that the Sephora in Utrecht has been opened! Next up is the one in Groningen on June 26, Amsterdam on July 3 and Rotterdam (my home town!) on July 10. These stores are all located in the V&D (a large department store) and there are more coming up. This is all great right? However, Sephora is also planning on opening...

Mascara I recommend: Yves Rocher’s Extensium

I bought this mascara last week after reading a lot of good reviews about it online and my personal opinion is: If you want long lashes with a great curve, go buy this mascara now! It’s from Yves Rocher (the company that uses natural ingredients only) and it’s only EUR 10,-! This is what Yves Rocher says about it: Dare to exaggerate with Curl-Effect Botanical Sap Innovation: an instant lash-lengthening and curling mascara for an amazing brushed effect. The long-lasting formula, with a high concentration of curl-effect botanical sap, gives the lashes a supple curve from root to tip. The...

Review: the Philips Epilator

Meet my latest purchase: the Philips Epilator HP6481 This thing removes hair. Not just the hair, but the whole thing,..root and all. The first time was a painful experience, especially the first few minutes… but I got used to the feeling after a while. Philips claims that after using this for just two months, the hair should not come back at all. My opinion? Seeing the result after using it just one time, is totally worth the pain I had. I got me some smooth and soft legs! Hopefully they will stay that way for a while.Read more...

Crazy fashions in Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl has only been around for 13 episodes, but I’m already hooked! And I’m not the only one… Not only is it entertaining to watch a couple of rich 15 year olds act like they’re all grown, it’s also funny to see them act like read adults and see them wear grown up clothes. 😀 Cause that is one of the reasons why Gossip Girl is so popular: its fashion. I gotta admit, some of the outfits in the show are absolutely ridiculous, but at the same time others are really to die for! AOL looked at Gossip Girl’s...

Elicina snail cream to the rescue!

I’ve been using Elicina snail cream since the beginning of August and my skin looks better before. My cheeks still have red spots though… and some days are better than others. I’ve been noticing that my skins breaks out immediately after I eat peanuts or something like a Snickers bar. It turns red a few hours later and I get a few nasty zits. I’ll spare you the details. But anyway.. today I went to the doctor (again), but this time I had blood drawn. I don’t like to have blood drawn at all. It’s not that I can’t stand...

i.d. bareMinerals

I checked out Sephora while I was in France. It’s one of my favorite stores in the U.S., but unfortunately we don’t have it in Holland. Anyway, I looked around for a while and then I discovered i.d. bareMinerals. I heard about it before, but I hadn’t seen it in stores anywhere. Until now! This is what the sign right next to the products said: Millions of women swear by i.d. bareMinerals the makeup that covers imperfections as it performs like a skincare treatment. Made with crushed minerals from the earth, bareMinerals are 100 percent pure (read: they won’t clog...

My bangs

My bangs were getting too long (I kept bumping into people), so last week I decided to go to the hairdresser down the street. My bangs were cut & I had them dye my hair black. Back to my natural hair color… it feels good! Black people have no business trying to be blond anyway!* *that’s a joke!Read more...
