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...

FreeBeautyEvents giveaway: total prize package worth $95

I’m back in the US! I’ve been back for almost a week actually, but the jet lag has been real.

Haha! I’m working on a review (trying out a new product), it will be up tomorrow. In the meantime, check out Free Beauty Events’ latest Beauty Basket Giveaway!

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. 🙂 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. 😀 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...
