Guest blog: Beauty Bakerie Cosmetics San Diego store opening (by Sheyla)

Beauty Bakerie, the Instafamous cosmetic brand opened its first flagship store in San Diego (Westfield Mission Valley mall) last weekend! Close to where I live. Sweet, right? (pun intented…hah!) I wish I could have attended, but as you probably know by now, I’m overseas visiting my family. My friend Sheyla was able to attend the grand opening on Saturday for me, so yay! Read all about her afternoon filled with makeup, fashion, treats, surprises and gifts below. 🙂 On Saturday, May 6th, I had the privilege of attending the grand opening for Beauty Bakerie’s new store in San Diego.

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...

Sephora’s Spring Bonus Insider Shopping Event has started!

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. Also, my little one was sick for a while. There just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! I have been active on my Instagram (@Kizzyonline), but I haven’t gotten around to update the blog. 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...

Here is some NEW Wet n Wild Photo Focus makeup you HAVE to try!

Long time no see! In the time I was away, the kids and I flew to Europe to spend some time with grandma and grandpa before my eldest starts kindergarten. We’re actually still here (in The Netherlands, to be exact); will be staying here for a little while. 🙂 Today I want to tell you about these awesome new products that Wet n Wild released not that long ago. These are all permanent items that have been added to the existing line at drugstores, grocery stores, and mass retailers. They are definitely not limited edition. I’ve been trying these products...

My new obsession: speed shopping with Tophatter

People, I’m obsessing over an app! It’s a shopping app called Tophatter and I literally can’t put my phone away. On this app you bid in real-time auctions to win deals of up to 80% off jewelry, electronics, beauty and fashion in under 90 seconds. Once I started looking around and placing bids, I was hooked. Oops! My newest purchase is this pearl necklace. 🙂 Tophatter is a site that features shopping events with (brand name) fashion, jewelry, beauty items, electronics and more, for prices starting at a dollar. But unlike Amazon, eBay or flash sale sites like Gilt or...

Ulta Beauty’s Biggest Event of the year starts today!

I don’t post about beauty sales that often anymore. After a while of trying to keep up, I noticed that there are just way too many going on simultaneously. Covering all, or even just the big ones, became almost impossible for me. So now I just post the ones I think are really worth mentioning, like brand friends & family sales, QVC’s today’s special value or any MAC, Sephora or Ulta sales. 😀 The biggest sale at the moment is definitely Ulta Beauty 21 Days of Beauty for Spring 2017. It’s their biggest sale of the year: it lasts, you...

Review: IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+ (my 1st solid serum foundation)

IT Cosmetics has a new foundation! It’s their first ever solid serum foundation and it happens to be the first one I’ve ever tried as well. 😀 A solid serum foundation is a serum with added pigments and SPF 50+ physical sunscreen, making it a full coverage, anti-aging foundation. It’s basically 3 products in one: a foundation, a serum, and a sunscreen, conveniently housed in an easy to store and travel-friendly compact. This type of skincare/foundation has been insanely popular in Asia and is now making its way to the rest of the world. Pretty cool! IT Cosmetics calls their...

LEGO Batman Movie Days at LEGOLAND CA [our day in pictures]

Hi everyone! On February 18-19 and 25-26 LEGOLAND California hosted the LEGO Batman Movie Days and my family and I got to attend the activities! We went this past weekend and we had a blast, especially my son, who got to meet his superhero (remember Halloween at LEGOLAND, when he dressed up as Batman?). 😀 During these two weekends, LEGOLAND guests got to meet the LEGO superhero during this celebration of the Warner Bros. Pictures’ feature film, which also includes photo opportunities with the scene-stealing star, a themed scavenger hunt and LEGO Batman-inspired LEGO build activities. We loved it! We...
