My brother before-and-after beard. Thoughts?

Beards have been in fashion for the last few years. Almost every single one of my cousins and male friends has a beard, especially the ones here in the Netherlands. 🙂 Opinions on facial hair are very divided, to say the least. People who don’t like beards usually say they’re too scruffy and unhygienic, but there are also people who love them because they say they’re masculine and exude confidence. Growing out a beard can dramatically change a guy’s look. Shaving it off can even be more dramatic! Some say that beards make men’s faces look stronger and more masculine,...

Guest blog: Beard Grooming Championships

In this article, we’re talking beards, not just your average beard, but the Championship League of Beards. Let’s take a gander and look at the Full Beard category in all its glory and see what it takes to grow a beard of champions. 😀 Full Beard Natural For those who love to go au naturel, then this is the beard for you as the rule of thumb, or beard is the more natural the better.

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...

Unboxing my Influenster Fierce VoxBox

Packages in the mail…who doesn’t enjoy receiving them? I sure do! Every now and then Influenster sends me their VoxBox and I love it! This time it was their Fierce VoxBox and it had 5 items.

Mommy review: SoCozy hair products for kids (and a sweepstake!)

Both my kids were born with a full head of hair. My 4-year-old son has thick straight hair, whereas his sister (who will be 5 months in a few days) has more fine, curly hair. One thing they have in common: they both have A LOT of hair! For this reason, I make sure to use good products on their hair; products they use at (kids) salons. For Mason’s hair I’ve been using SoCozy. Mason has been using SoCozy’s Boing Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Spray. Seems like a lot for a boy who’s only 4 years old, but he doesn’t...

Guest blog: 4 awesome substances which prevent hair loss

Hair is one of the most important physical traits of any person. It is definitely one of the first things other people notice on you. Unlike some other parts of the body, hair can be easily modified and changed. In fact, it can be used to show off your character. Unfortunately, some people lose their hair too soon. Sometimes, this can be caused by a medical condition such as alopecia. In most cases, it is simply due to old age. Given that hair follicles are so sensitive, it is expected that they will start falling off sooner than later. Luckily,...

Review: Head & Shoulders Green Apple Shampoo

It’s been really busy this past week, guys. Having a toddler and a baby sure does take up a lot of time. I haven’t even had time to properly do my hair after I wash it. Instead of straightening my hair with a flat iron, like I usually do, I’ve been doing a so-called ‘wash-and-go’. Wash-and-go simply means I’ve been washing my hair and letting it air-dry. I have naturally curly hair, so that’s what I’ve been rocking. The picture below is my hubby and I on Thanksgiving. 🙂 My hair has been looking beautiful. Not to toot my own...
