Review: Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme, limited edition liquid-to-matte lipsticks

Hi everyone! In my August beauty favorites the other day, I mentioned Milani’s Amore Matte Lip Creme in the shade ‘Embrace’ (a deep reddish plum) as one of the beauty items I’ve been using a lot lately. A lot of you guys were asking me questions about it, so I decided to go more into detail today. If you’re curious about these after reading this review, I’d recommend running to your nearest Walgreens or CVS as soon as you can. This collection is limited edition and very hard to find! What it is This revolutionary, highly saturated liquid-to-matte formula dries...

Mason is ready for Fall, with Carter’s Back-to-School fashion!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation. It’s back-to-school season! For the past couple of weeks I’ve seen so many status updates from moms on Facebook and other social media about their kid’s first day at school. Mason just turned 3 and part of me is happy that he’s not in school yet, because wow…it seems like a stressful time for not only kids but also parents! I do remember this season when I was growing up and...

My August beauty favorites (Milani, it Cosmetics, Exuviance and more)

It’s time for my August beauty favorites! August has been crazy for me. I was away from home for almost the entire month. In the second week of August I returned from The Netherlands, where I had spent close to 3 months. Then, right after getting back home in Vegas, we went to California for a few days to look at potentially new apartments. When we got back, we started packing our entire apartment and two weeks later we drove to San Diego and moved into our new place. So that was my August…. My life can be a little...

I’m back! And I have a few new things to share

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! It’s been a while huh? Sometimes there aren’t enough hours in a day…. This past week has been so incredibly busy! Mainly because we moved to a new apartment in a different city! Yep, no more Vegas for us, we’re on to a new adventure! Moving is a pain though, even if it’s just a few hours away. There’s always much more to pack/do/plan than you initially thought and it ends up taking so much more of your time than you would have hoped. But yes, we did it! I’m writing this post from our new...

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...
