FBE’s monthly beauty giveaway + throwback pics of our son’s first day of school

Last time I was here a few days ago and I mentioned that Mason (5) had started kindergarten (kleuterschool, in Dutch). I promised to post some pics of him on Instagram, but like with most of my promises recently…I didn’t keep it (sadly). I’ve actually been off social media for a while now and it’s kind of a ‘step’ to get back on… I have been checking Facebook once in a while, but that’s about it. Because I didn’t post these pics there, I decided to put them here instead. So here’s Mason posing and holding different objects on his...

New hair! All about those curls…

I changed my hair again! You might remember my visit to a hair salon last year, I wrote about it here. Last week I (finally!) got to go again and this time I went for a completely different look! Here’s a ‘before’ pic…. before My hair has grown a lot since then! Because I will be spending quite some time at the pool this summer, I now decided to go for a haircut that doesn’t require the use of a hair straightener. Wearing my hair the way it grows out of my head, instead of using a flat iron after...

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. πŸ™‚ 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,...

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. πŸ˜€ 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...

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...

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. πŸ™‚ My hair has been looking beautiful. Not to toot my own...
